WTF is wrong with twitter. Seriously is anyone experiencing this? Response sorely needed. When one tweets and your tweet gets sent, it refreshes the page and your tweet becomes the first tweet on the page. That’s the normal twitter way. Now, when I tweet, it doesn’t automatically refresh the page. I have to scroll all the way up to click on where it says “20 New Tweets or 30 New Tweets” to see the new tweets that popped up while I was composing my own tweet. Then I have to click again “20 New Tweets” to be able to see my tweet.
This crap began today and I want to know if anyone else is experiencing this because it’s pissing me the fuck off.
Only use Twitter, occasionally, to compose tweets but never use it to track tweets – only use TweetDeck for that.
Thanks Bob. Can you explain what TweetDeck is exactly?
It’s a software app that integrates with Twitter and provides you a way to view multiple columns of tweets (depending on the size of your monitor) effortlessly, or on a touch screen smartphone (e.g., iPhone) you can have multiple columns and you just flip between them.
As a ‘deck’ on a good size monitor you can have a feed of Tweets from “All Friends” & a feed of “Mentions” & a feed of “DMs” etc, all vertically oriented and in view simultaneously.
I run it in the background of other apps, including browser with multiple tabs, as the only way I can possibly try to keep an eye on stuff while doing my ‘day job’ :)
I’m with BobFR; Tweetdeck user here.
I only use Twitter to send shortened URLS with the source visible (e.g., NYT, LAT, etc.) instead of the “bit.ly” shorted URL.
But Twitter seemed OK for me today (sent a couple of tweets and the page auto-refreshed).
Thanks for the feedback. I’ve never used TweetDeck. Can you explain in detail how it works?
Tweetdeck allows you to see different windows at the same time. Things like the feed you’re reading, mentions, certain people’s timelines. I love it.
I’m just about the least technical person around, and found Tweetdeck easy to install and use.
It’s never failed to auto-refresh for me.
The best Tweetdeck feature is the separate columns you can set up for specific users (who tweet a lot) or a separate column for a Twitter List or Group. The only downside is the time it takes to set up Twitter groups/lists (if you haven’t already done so).
Just download it from Tweetdeck.com (which will give you the option of selecting your computer OS or mobile app).
Happy tweetdecking to you.
I just tested it and it automatically refreshed when I tweeted. I’m not sure why but Twitter tends to have glitches for different users at different times..I can see why you would be frustrated.
Thanks hopefruit. It’s very frustrating. You’re right about Twitter having glitches for different users at different times. I’ll see how it goes. It’s soooooooo annoying.
Yep, I am… and it is very annoying.
REMINDER: PBO will be having a video conference for volunteer leaders in just a few minutes:
Everyone, please join in!!
My link now says he’ll hold the talk at 8:20 EST…how is he going to do this campaign speech AND the phone call?? At the same time? It’s already past time for the phone call….anyone know?
I get a thanks for joining PBO will be joining in a few minutes 8:20 est.
I think the campaign speech was pushed back to 9:20.

O/T: Not totally, but somewhat. Ed has been doing his radio show lying on the floor. He said, “I surrender.” Guess he is having back surgery. I heard him say he will not be on radio next two days. He didn’t say anything about tonight, but obviously we have the answer. YUCK!!! Anyway, feel sorry for him…….dealing with horrible back pain and Wendy dealing with cancer/chemo. Lot of their plate right now.
Poor guy. Back pain is no joke :-(
Here’s what I suspect is going on: Romney and his camp KNOW that President Obama will win the election, so right now, they are no longer trying to win, but instead are trying to create as much difficulty, distractions and headaches for our President going into his second term. The Tea Party of 2009 was their plan and the media enabled them in that regard. Will the media enable the GOP in their dangerous games of messing with foreign policy in the Middle East? This is just a test run..they might try something during the week of election to rain on PBO’s (and our) parade.
Thanks for the pick me up, Chips! I needed it after the vileness of today.
I love it when Michelle, Malia, and Sasha sneaks up on Barack after he had finish speaking.
And thanks, LisaLovesObama, for letting TOD-ites know Ezra is sitting in for Ed. Won’t bother watching tonight; I wonder if @RichardWolffeDC feels the same way? He’s on @lawrences’ show tonight instead of on Ed’s.
(Saw the thread a few weeks back re: naughty mat for Wolffe. In compete agreement — I think it’s his accent [straight female here].
Nah…..it’s not JUST his accent. :) :) :)
But it certainly helps (at least in my book ;-) )
For me It’s more than the accent (Don’t really feel naughty for Martin Bashir, and certainly not for Piers Morgan) It’s the way he thinks and expresses his thoughts, his sense of humor, etc., and of course, that he supports PBO doesn’t hurt either. :) :)
It’s not the accent or his looks that make him sexy to me. It’s the fact that he’s in PBO’s corner. Any guy who’s got PBO’s back is ALWAYS intensely attractive to me. I like to call it ‘The Obama Factor.” it’s why I’ve always pushed for an ‘All the President’s Men” calendar! Yowza!!!! Man oh, man!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: oucha, magoucha!!! :leer: ;) hehehehe :lol:
Hmm…well, Chris Christie just sent a text to let you know that he’s actually in PBO’s corner!
Gar! I thought we had gotten pass that regrettable bit of insanity. Hopefruit! Gar! Have you no mercy?
LOL.I’m so sorry lisa! :) No more mention of that.
Merci mon amie! Much appreciated! :)
I bought Richard Wolf’s first book about Obama’s ’08 campaign. I enjoyed reading it and reliving the campaign. Can’t remember the name of the book, but it was the first one out that was a possitive book. Richard has always been very positive towards PBO. His intelligence, accent and looks are all appealing.
Oh, yeah. Sign me up!
NP, Arapaho! I’m watching The Mentalist instead. Iz gouda! ;)
You are too funny. But agree, I do like to see enthusiastic PBO support. Especially to offset the constipated looks from @chucktodd who will also be on @lawrence’s show tonight.
One thing that drives me nuts about the hyper-MSM is that they leap on the “pointing fingers” bandwagon without really taking time to pay tribute to all of the PEOPLE who died in that horrific Benghazi attack.

Wow, I’m just blown away by the outpouring of support from the Libyan people. It flies in the face of all the RWNJs that came out of the woodwork to bash PBO.
This is the same sort of humanity on display in Florida when the TP trashed the pizza guy’s store online and Dems showed up in great numbers to contribute to his foundation. Good over evil.

True. But even “neck and neck” is a substantial improvement considering Brown was up by 5pts right before the DNC convention. :) :)
That is correct, good point!
I sent Elizabeth Warren money. I hope she wins. I can’t believe the good people of MA would keep him as their Senator. Ms. Warren will do them proud in the same tradition as Ted Kennedy.

What color do you think the color of the sky is in #RomneyWorld ?— Tally Briggs (@bardgal) September 13, 2012
HAAAAAAAA! Well played. :D
Like a BOSS!! :-D
Puce is the French word for flea. The color is said to be the color of the bloodstains remaining on linen or bedsheets, even after being laundered, from a flea’s droppings or after a flea has been killed.
Bedbugs leave the same stains from their droppings as part of their nightly wanderings on the surfaces of bedsheets, pillowcases and blankets. These colored stains on one’s bedding after laundering are a bedbug alert.
That would be Myth, alrighty.

Sen. Paul filibusters Senate until he gets a vote to end aid to Pakistan
By Ramsey Cox
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is filibustering all legislation until he gets a vote on his proposal to end foreign aid to Pakistan.
“We should not be giving foreign aid to any country that is not clearly our ally,” Paul said Monday. “This must end, and this week I will renew my push for a vote on this issue, including holding up Senate business to accomplish this goal.”
Kiss my lily white ass!
Paul Ryan currently filibustering ALL legislation (including jobs, aid for our military, etc) until he gets votes to starve Palestinians.WTF— Tally Briggs (@bardgal) September 13, 2012
Is it Paul Ryan, or Rand Paul? Or both?
I read it was Ryan – let me try to find it.
Can reps even filibuster? I thought that was only Senators.
It’s gone. I either hallucinated it, or it was pulled. My bad all around for not linking. I saw more than one – but now I can’t find them. I’ve deleted. Apologies.
There is not much difference between the two, They are both selfish and privileged who pretend to be devout Christians but who, at the same time, worship the premier atheist, Ayn Rand.

The MSM pretends to “call out” Romney in other to CYA in case something bad happens or someone dies, but when they think no one’s looking, they give him a wink and a nod to continue doing exactly as he’s been doing. I’ve been checking Chuck Todd’s Twitter TL all day and it’s nothing but excuse after excuse for Romney and attempts to deflect from his outrageous cravenly acts. Chuck has been retweeting tweets from Bryon Tau about PBO’s bad optics when he had the “cheering rally” after the Aurora shooting, and tweets from Donald Rumsfeld about America being perceived as weak as reason for the attacks and how “right” Romney was in that regard.
Andrea Mitchell pretended to be upset at Romney’s behavior this afternoon, but trots out Mike Rogers, a Republican on the Intelligence comittee to make excuses for Romney while underhandedly condemning the administration for the way they relate to Nut n Yahoo. Anderson Cooper’s big question tonight is whether or not PBO responded appropriately to the attacks. WTF?!?!?
It’s sickening, the hypocrisy of the MSM. Romney is behaving the way he is because he KNOWS he will get away with it. The MSM will protect him while pretending to be “shocked” or “outraged” in order to get people off their backs.
Luckily, very few people know who Andrea Mitchell and Chuck Todd are – they are celebrities in the Beltway, and no-names in the real world.

I’m thinking PBO hasn’t gotten any sleep. This whole embassy thing started in the early morning hours and he’s been up with SOS, and fending off Mitt, and doing 60 minutes, now this call, and there’s still Nevada. I don’t know how he does it. He is looking a tad bit tired. It’s bringing out the mother hen in me, which is better than the cougar in me. Cluck, cluck, meeeeoooow

Will be televised on C-Span.
Pres. Obama is LIVE NOW on C-SPAN One on TV.
Stood in 100 degree heat to get in to see PBO in Vegas. What a nightmare. Had a heatstroke and could not find medical personnel to help me. After waiting 4 hrs they finally let us in the building. They packed people in like sardines. People shoving, pushing, and getting nasty. I finally asked for assistance to leave the building. I was so disappointed I didn’t get to see Pres Obama but I couldn’t get my body cooled. they say 8,000 in attendance but I beg to differ. I feel it was more like 12,000. Anyway, just sharing my experience of today.
so sorry for your experience ((((Kari)))) and that you had to miss POTUS. Take care~
Dear Kari – you really cared for what you went through – do hope you are feeling better and listening to the speech.
Feeling better now? That’s so terrifying….please take care of yourself. I know how disappointed you must be, but your health comes first. You did the right thing
Sorry so Kari. Please take good care of yourself. Nothing is more important than your health.
Thank you all for your caring words and concern. I’m re-hydrated and cooled my body tempt down with a cold shower. The local FOX affiliate interviewed me on my way to my car and I gave a fantastic interview on the president I love so dearly. Hopefully they air the entire clip. If they do, I’ll post it here. It’s worth it to look like hell to get on FOX and speak the truth about Pres Obama. :)
So sorry to hear of your misfortune. I have found some people are just overzealous when it comes to seeing PBO- he is definitely at rock star status- and I just always direct my “hope you’ll vote for him” sentiments their way. We all need to be very serious in this upcoming election. Hopefully you’ll get another chance, Kari, and also hope you are resting after your ordeal.
If anyone knows where Mary Grab a Mop is….please wish her a very happy birthday,

The whole day just seems surreal to me. Like waking up to 911 or PBO had won the nobel prize and thinking someone was punking me, only to find out it is real. This seems the same way I like I will wake up tomorrow and non of this would have happened.
He’s dead serious tonight.
I have a new little grandaughter – just 3 days old – and for her and her mother – I am so glad the adult is in charge.
Congratulations….you must be so proud!
TY – hard to remember that a wee one can make you so protective – I am somewhat out of words – and so tired – I cannot imagine how PBO keeps right on day in – day out – bless him.
Congrats! May she and your family be blessed with love, peace and joy!
ty Alycee – I wonder sometimes if the GOP folks have forgotten their grandchildren – the love pours out just looking at her.
ohhh congratulations 99ts :) and he’s going to REMAIN in charge ~
Woot! Happy New GrandBaby! :-)
Congratulations 99ts. New grandchildren are absolutely the best thing in the world, bar none. Ours is a 8 days old now. Such a big girl and such very big (and loud) lungs. For the sake of all the precious little ones, R-money can not ever gain the White House.
TY Jackie and everyone else – what lovely people you all are. Ours is as yet so little – the last scan said she had “big feet” so we were convinced it was a boy! very sexist of me.
Big feet are important for a future Olympic swimmer, so look on the bright side.
Congrats on you new granddaughter!
Lost in the news: 10 Libyans died trying to defend US Consulate last night in #Benghazi.— David Monroe (@David0Monroe) September 13, 2012
Hi Forus50, THX for the tweet
I am so appalled that the narrative that’s getting media play is the Robme attack on PBO – if he had an ounce of class this would have been about the brave state department employees who worked to save their colleagues, the Libyans who died trying to defend the Consulate, those who lost their lives, etc.
For this I condemn Robme
Yes, for the families who lost loved ones yesterday it must be just appalling that their deaths are only being discussed in the same sentence as Mitt Romney’s name. But then it really isn’t any surprise as the GOP NEVER respected lives lost in Iraq or Afghanistan. It seems like a long time ago (well I guess it was) when Bush dishonored their service by cutting off all media access to those who came back in a coffin. SOOOO pisses me off still. Such callous disregard for the young men and women who lost their life in foreign lands.
I would have hated it even more if Romney had done this and the media totally ignorred it and gave him a pass. Our futures are at stake.
Susan, I also include the media in my condemnation! Americans needed to know about the heroism of both Americans and Libyans who sacrificed to defend the U.S. Consulate. Thank you David Monroe (and thank you forus50 for sharing) for focusing on the real heroes of the horrific events that took place in Libya yesterday. I really don’t want to hear from Cheney and Rumsfeld. They are nothing to me after they led this country into war over lies. I will never forget what Rumsfeld said when, in the aftermath of U.S. invasion, people were dying in Baghdad and Iraq treasures were being looted. He glibly blamed all that on the “messy democracy.” Now this war criminal has the audacity to come out and attack President Obama.
So sad. The loss of all of these lives because of no other reason than fear of another’s religion.
I didn’t know this, Forus–it’s such important information for people to have. It makes what these terrorists did to the embassy even more heinous and evil.
I don’t know how he does this. I’m exhausted and I haven’t even don 1/8th of what he’s done today. Unbelievable.
He’s had a very rough day. The ambassador provided him with briefings throughout the Libyan struggle. I think he feels this loss very deeply as well as the frightening ramifications that could ripple throughout the ME. And then to top it all off, having idiot Romney running psy ops on him, I really don’t know how he does it.
I DON’T KNOW HOW HE DOES IT EITHER…PRAYING FOR HIS STRENGTH DURING SUCH HORRIFIC TIMES OF TRIAL IS THE BEST THING WE CAN DO…WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO PRAY TO LIFE HIM!
man the sound is messed up.
THE SOUND WAS AWFUL…THAT’S WHY I WENT TO TV TO CSPAN!
yeah I think it was the sound system at the place in LV that he was speaking from, because it was awful on cnn too.
Our Prez is pizzed. And so am I.
My President wants to beat the Shit out of Robney, and so do I.
My President wants to take Willard’s arse and serve it to him on a platter, and so do I.

Oh Sue, that comment about the squirrels made me smile. Thank you……..needed that desperately. I am SO angry and concerned and frustrated and…….and…..AARRGGHH!!!!!!
Mitt is simply trying to justify going to war with his lies and insults – the President calls him out – the GOP should be dead in November.
And they will not rest In peace, they shall know nothing besides torment. Well and truly earned….
And me being so full of love for gdaur at the minute – I have never know the US republicans to be so full of hatred – & I have been watching since the Kennedy campaign – the implosion will be long lasting – as it should be – those who died when Gabby Giffords was so wounded shall Rest in Peace.
This is the sort of thing that has our CO2 levels at the lowest since 1996:
California Efficiency Measures a Success
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) on September 4 reported that its groundbreaking energy efficiency programs resulted in savings of 5,900 gigawatt-hours of electricity in 2010-2011, enough to power more than 600,000 households for a year—the equivalent of two major power plants. In addition, the estimated savings cut carbon dioxide emissions by 3.8 million tons, the equivalent of removing more than 700,000 cars from the roads. The findings were based on utility-reported estimates.
In its 2010-2011 Energy Efficiency Annual Progress Evaluation Report, the CPUC summarized investor-owned utility implementation thus far in CPUC’s $3.1 billion 2010-2012 energy efficiency program. The report details progress toward meeting multiple statewide energy and climate policy objectives. It states that 89% of estimated energy savings reported through 2011 occurred in the commercial (55%) and residential (34%) sectors. The agricultural and industrial sectors combine to make up the remaining 12% of electric savings. Through 2011, the majority of estimated electric savings was achieved through lighting (59%), followed by process improvements (13%) and HVAC (10%).
Think about it, people…saved the same amount of energy to equal closing two power plants. That’s what I’m talkin’ about.
That’s my state!!
Yup! That’s my state! Although we have our share of RWNJ, Californians ere very conscious about the need to conserve energy and the the importance of investing in alternative energy sources. In 2010, corporations and moneyed interests tried to buy both the governorship and the U.S. Senate seat, but they failed miserably.
Oooooooooo — he’s pissed!
I think so too Alycee, it’s a beautiful thing to behold. He already knew what a contemptible piece of shit Romney was, but after today I reckon he wants to crush him. His anger tonight is palpible.
Hope the podium is bolted down; it could go flying tonight when he slaps it!
So someone said that Fox had a pic of the then “unconcsious” Abm Stevens on the front page. I thought it was disgusting exploitation. So I refused to click on it. I was on Sullivan’s site and I just happened to be reading his latest post and low and behold he had the had the picture on his front page above his usual fold. I don’t know why, but it pissed me off. I think it woulda been better if it was below the fold. I don’t like the idea of Sully using the Amb photo as his latest arab spring pic. IDK, maybe I’m just tripping. But I oculd have done without the pic.
I stopped reading Sullivan when he recently said PBO got a “Clinton bounce” from the convention. He is nasty – and swaps sides every other post.
BIG podium smack!
Authoritative Podium Smack!!!
I think he must’ve pretended that podium was the upside of Romney’s head!
That’s what I pictured in my mind. Thank you.
I know know if he was pretending that, but I sure was! :-D
Can always depend on our Dudette!!! Perfect. Should’ve put boxing gloves on!
Girl — that’s my ex-husbands jam! LOL
Fucking c-span Bastards!!!! Messed up the end of PBO’s speech!!!! Fuckwits!!!!
It was ok for me.
CBS Ustream always lets you watch him shake hands afterwards. I like that.
It worked fine for me. Maybe it was your connection.
Damn he is dead damn serious tonight. On Fire from start to finish & after all he’s been doing from yesterday to last night to todays issues.. and tonight he just continues full blast. He is just continually impressive. EXCELLENCE – this is it.
Yes, he was very serious. He usually shake hands with that big smile when he arrive, but he came right to the stage. He has a lot on his mind today.
and a heavy heart. A sad day frought I am sure with so many huge decisions.. imagine having to send out the order to kill/catch bad guys.. to call husbands, wives, parents of those lost last night… and the bs media & Romney Ryan idiocy. How sad a day for him, for so many. It would cause most of us to fold up our tent and run for the hills. He is so committed to us, to whats right.
This has to be one of those days that fits well with the quote by Lincoln that he spoke of at the convention.
President Obama, speaking on a call to volunteers in advance of his campaign event in Las Vegans, said that his reelection campaign had registered a massive number of new voters during the week of the Democratic convention.
“Last week we registered 100,000 voters,” Obama said. “Those are some big numbers.”
In poll after poll, the Obama campaign has persistently done better among registered voters or the general adult population than likely voters — pointing an electorate that supporters the president but only tepidly. One poll even found Obama leading among unlikely voters — a major incentive for the campaign to identify likely supporters, register them to vote, and get them to turn out on election day.
It’s a political cliché — but Obama told supporters that the election was going to come down to turnout.
“There are a bunch of states where if turnout is like it was in 2010, we lose. if turnout is like it was in 2008, we win,” Obama said.
Praising volunteer efforts, Obama said that voting turnout efforts and registration drives were the most important tools in the campaign’s arsenal.
“A lot of people care deeply about the direction of our country but they’re not in the habit of voting,” Obama said. “Sometimes the rules are purposely made difficult in terms of voting and they haven’t been asked to register to vote.”
One hundred thousand!!!
I’ll be registering voters this weekend. Yay!!!
Good Girl! We all should be…
Pres. Obama was pissed off tonight in the way only he can eloquently convey that emotion. One can tell that he is disgusted by Romney and wants to crush him come November.
I’m all for the crushin’! Can’t wait! #FORWARD
Me too! I want him crushed into a fine ash! I want his name to become a laughingstock. I want this election to be so brutal and painful for him that even his great great great great grand kids 10 times removed still shudder at the thought of running for public office. I want him finished. NO MERCY!!!!!
Ps- never knew I was so blood thirsty. Hmmm……
Ha! “Crushed into a fine ash” I like your FIYAH!! :-)
+ 1,000,000,000 Bring. It. On.
I would like to see all Republicans crushed. In addition to Romney, I pray that both Eric cantor and Paul Ryan are defeated. I want Liz Warren to win back Teddy’s Senate seat in MA. I am praying to all the Gods that Kyl’s Arizona seat is won by the Doctor. I want to go to bed on Nov. 6 knowing that the Democrats have taken back the U.S. House of Rep., retained their majority in the U.S. Senate, and re-elected our great President and Vice-President, Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
WATCHED OUR ‘ENERGIZER BUNNY’ PREZ ON CSPAN….WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…FIRED UP IN NEVADA!
In case anyone has “forgotten”…..or share this with the braindead/ “forgetful” people you know!
DF this is awesome sauce! Wish someone could make a really coherent pictogram of it and tweet the heck out of it. SHAME on the media for it’s unrelenting distortions about 2 years of control – and for not calling out the repugs when they repeat the lie.
Nite all…I’m beat. Thanks as always for this blessed haven.
Thanks, Susan…and thanks to Pragmatic Pundit:) Can someone (lots of someones) Tweet this?? Many hugs:)
Andrea Mitchell on my tv making me sick
I manager to listen to Mrs. Greenspan and she even thought Mitt went to far.
I love my President. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
I do too. :)
I’ll be willing to eat my words if proven wrong. But I fear I won’t be.
Don't be fooled by the #MSM being "aghast" at .@MittRomney's statements. They'll be back to bootlicking in a few days.— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) September 13, 2012
LL, you are not alone in your skepticism about the MSM’s so-called “outrage” at Romney. (See my comments upthread). They are playing games. On one hand they pretend to be upset about what Romney did in order to cover their asses and get people off their backs in case more retaliation and loss of life ensue. On the other hand (their TRUE hand), they give a wink and a nod to Romney and a closed-door promise to keep defending and enabling his outrageous behavior for as long as it creates a headache for our President, and brings ratings to their networks.
You are absolutely right LL! In this tragic situation, the media realized that they could not cover for Romney’s idiocy without loosing their total credibility. In support of the truth of your observation, some media people are already trying to provide cover for Romney’s despicable statements.
Ok, Chips, you need to get tonight’s event up ASAP. We need to tweet the hell out of it.
Bitch pisses me off!
.@mitchellreports STOP THE FALSE EQUIVALENCY — "Both sides" DON'T DO IT! .@mittromney's and .@gop reckless actions puts USA in danger!— Alycee (@jazziz2) September 13, 2012
Agree, LL. And it will be extra special bootlicking to make up for their “lapse” today when just a moment of honest emotion on their part came through.
I don’t even believe that their emotion today was honest. It was designed to cover their arses and get people off their backs. They’ve already started the bootlicking and that is not consistent with people who are genuinely outraged.
Lying, smirking Romney is now at 81% chance of losing. Let's make it 100% before the week is out.#NotFitForOffice fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com— ForUS50 (@FORUS50) September 13, 2012
I don’t know the difference between the two sets of figures from Nate Silver – but the “now-cast” version gives the President a 91.6% chance – Nate knows arithmetic.
The “now-cast” is how things look now. The “forecast” is a prediction of the future.
I want the Presidency, the Senate, AND THE HOUSE…Dems all the way!! This RWNJ shit has got to end! NOW!!!
Romney is going to lose. He knows that. His campaign managers know that. They know that, which is why they’re now trying to create problems for the President going into his second term.
CNN PIX…ABOUT 500 PROTESTORS IN THE SQUARE IN CAIRO…:(

Today might be the day I land in Twitter jail. I am just seething with anger. We all are. Good. Use it to crush the GOP in November.
I hear ya, LL. I am pissed off at the media as much as I am pissed off at Mitt Romney and the GOP. That donkey, Andrea Mitchell had the audacity to sit on Maddow’s show and equate the Obama administration’s release of statement after the attacks with Mitt Romney’s opportunistic, disgusting vile political play yesterday. And Maddow just let her spew on and on with zero pushback.
