10:10 ET: The President delivers remarks at the Democratic National Convention
Still waiting for confirmation of the rest of the schedule (here)
Hellooooooooooooooo Hopefruit, hellooooooooooooo Lisa!
Ayayeah! One of my favorite pics.
Thank you Chips :)
One of the best pics ever!
Marc Anthony to sing the national anthem.— rootless (@root_e) September 06, 2012
I wish he would sing it in Spanish.
Hey TOD fam! Hey Chips! So grateful for all of you! And for our president and all the dems and indies at this convention this year! Because of my schedule, I mostly have to catch up on things after they’ve already happened, but it’s well worth it! Onward and forward! :-)
Axe speaking on CSPAN http://www.c-span.org/DNC/Live/
Axe is such a loyal person to POB. Happy news to hear about his son’s wedding. I wish happiness to Axe and his family. Axe will at least get some R&R before hitting the road again. Love Axe for his support, confidence in POB, and their beautiful friendship. Thank you Axe!!!!HZ
I didn’t know Axe had a son, too. I thought he only had one daughter.
He just stated that his son was getting married. Michael, I do believe. I do believe that he has three children.HZ
Thanks for the info! Nice, happy news.
Uptown #CLT is full of energy! Street performers have been one of our favorite parts of #DNC2012 instagr.am/p/PPshrrlATH/— (@DemConvention) September 06, 2012
They were trashing Elizabeth Warren on MSNBC a couple minutes ago. Jerks.
That whole crew, especially Tweety, needs to shut the fuck up! Pardon my french! They can fuck up a wet dream, just so they can have something to talk/bitch about.
i think for alot of these political pundits it is about promoting themselves and their opinions…rather than reporting the news…they are not journalists….a journalist REPORTS the news…….. they do not try to CREATE the news…and giving your opinion does not make it true…
because opinions are like a**holes…you know the rest!
I don’t care. Nothing they can say or do will destroy my joy this week. Besides, Warren will win.
If we can’t vote for her, at least check out her action center or at minimum consider donating to her. http://elizabethwarren.com/
Just spotted: Rep. Gabby Giffords arriving at Time Warner Cable Arena. She will give the Pledge of Allegiance tonight.— Carrie Dann (@CarrieNBCNews) September 06, 2012
Praise the Lord. Nasty afternoon thunderstorm approaching Charlotte. The decision to move indoor was wise. Now, I need to cover up and run!— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) September 06, 2012
Presidential LEADERSHIP ….
To ALL #NEWSTAINERS – it's called Presidential Leadership & that's why 65000+ folk aren't now standing in a thunder storm cc: @stefcutter— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 06, 2012
Oh dear, this poses a real problem for Romney-Ryan and the Republican Party. How on earth will they spin this.
It’s raining in Charlotte, if you believe so-called climate scientists.
Hi Chips, just saw this on CSPAN
9:10 Jill Biden
AS it should be! But they needed more time for Michelle – the standing ovation will last all four minutes… :)
Am watching the cycle for the first time….who is Toure and why is he trashing Elizabeth Warren? This Panel stinks.
and that is why I refuse to watch. The only panelist I have respect for on that program and would be interested in watching is Crystal Ball. But I refuse to watch even her on the Cycle. I catch her on other programming. She should have her own show.
Her and Karen Finney should have a Show together.
Man, I am starting to dose off… Zzzzzzzz!
Yup – I refuse to watch even the excellent Ms Ball on that show. It’s a disaster!
the hit was put out a year or two ago on elizabeth warren by the billionaire owners of the media, so these pundidiots are just doing what they’re pid to do. the negativity toward her has really ramped up this week now that she got a national audience which will boost her campaign. “the news” is doing their best to stop her surge, but i think betwen her awesomeness and the obama juggernaut, they might not be able to stop her now. they’ll sure try though, so get used to it.
i’ve even noticed all kinds of new names in some of the bigger liberal blogs who are showing up in comments sections now bringing up some form of, “what’s wrong with warren. is she a terrible candidate. she’s going to lose. the sky is falling” and things like that, to try and deject her supporters. do be fooled! elizabeth warren will win this race, and hopefully then a candidate for president in 2016. did you see how incredible she was before president clinton last night!?! she’s really something special.
This looks similar to the Timothy Geitner treatment. It comes out of nowhere, it’s based on nothing substantive and it’s relentless.
Just got Home! I am beat, flip on the Taped Tamron Hall, and their is Lynn Sweets Trolling for Robney.
She is supposed to be a local Politician, but She acts like a tea bagger!
I am taking a Nap, these Pundits suckass.
lolol rest up for tonight jovie. Glad to see you got back home okay.
Welcome home, Jovie – glad you got home in one piece. Thanks for all the on-the-ground reporting.
Lynn is a reporter, yes? Who cares what she thinks!
Thank you for I Got A Feeling! I Got A Feeling it’s gonna be a great night….Thank you Chips and everyone else here…
I love that song too! Just makes you wanna get up and dance every time you hear it, right? :)
Yes, oh, I play that song everytime I drive from IL to TX to see all my relatives. Love the Arithmetic!
Very cool. What Bill wrote versus what Bill said
This is FABULOUS!!!! And Tweetable!!!!
Can’t keep up with TOD this week! (But in a good way; FLOTUS and Big Dog were amazing and inspiring. Whoever said one-two-three punch was spot on.)
I posted this over the weekend; great article on James Taylor, lifelong North Carolina progressive.
Those old enough to remember his impact on 1970s folk-rock will appreciate this:
Some gems via Twitter
Matthew Dowd @matthewjdowd
Key difference after feel of two conventions, republicans are in arranged marriage with Romney, democrats fell in love with Obama.
VIDEO: @SenatorBoxer with the message for women coming out of the #dnc2012
Also, Chips here’s more on the schedule
BTW in the MSNBC video Senator Boxer didn’t let idiot Mitchell get away with anything!
Senator Barbara Boxer did not take that ugly spirit of Andrea Mitchell get away with the snarky remarks that only Ms. Greenspan seem to always want to come up with about our President. Sen. Boxer shut her down real fast. Love Senator Boxer!!!! I did tell Andrea a few thoughts from my mind ,”Do Not Even Think It, Andrea.” Sorry behind reporter.HZ
Good news — job growth for the month of August was better than expected.
U.S. businesses stepped up hiring last month, adding workers at a greater-than-expected pace, according to a new report from payroll giant ADP. The unexpected surge may suggest that the healing labor market is faring better than previous figures showed.
The RW hopes for America to fail. They lust for power, not prosperity.
TPM has a schedule up with MaryJ. Blige, Foo Fighters, James Taylor and Marc Anthony performing. Gabby Giffords pledge of allegiance. An unbelievable cast of governors, and other electeds, and of course—–J & J Biden and FLOTUS + POTUS. Turn up the sound and get ready, for here it comes!
New post everyone:
The day started kinda rough but man has it improved as time progressed! Shuttle bus didn’t show up so we decided to drive it. [Dear God please let us not get lost...] … We got lost. Of course; I might add this was WITH Baby Sis reading Google Maps direction on my phone. So many streets blocked off by 9ft iron fences. We gave up trying to get close. Paid $20 to park at a church. Walked along the fence for what what felt like a half marathon. Hot sun bearing down (yes dammit, hot freakin SUN)…
Call me crazy but wasn’t this song played during the RNC? I am not going to “fact check” it because my computer battery is running low. Would love to know as I remember thinking “I wonder if (they) approved the use of this song?”
