Helloooooooooooo Taiping – and everyone
Hell Yeah it’s still about change!
Thanks! Love all the OFA posters. Change is hard but we will not give up. As the I Ching says, “Perseverance furthers.”
First! Hi all and let’s keep working!
Wait up, TODville! Don’t leave anyone behind.
I am having the greatest fun with Chips Chica and this ‘new’ door she has redecorated….severely! I sorta wish she could see the dancing around the door I often do because I’m not sure if I should open it or not. This time I opened and closed it two different times before realizing that I should just step in! VC
LOL! vc you are too much
Stepanie Cutter’s in da’ houuusse. You betta’ watch yo’ mouuuth! Yeah baby, she speaks the truth!!
WOW – this is an excellent fact-based rebuttal to Romney’s lies. Thanks – Stephanie!

Awesome! I posted to Dashboard
Love Stephanie!!!! Congratulations Chips for your increase on hits!!
I thought it was so nice, I’m posting it twice:

Thank you, WiW
Good ad. I haven’t seen this one.
Oh Df, isn’t WiW wonderful? I was just coming down to share another of my boots-on-the-ground tweet about #ACA, most of which I get from WhatisWorking’s site (See the list of sites to the right for the link, TODobots! WiW has been stockpiling pertinent info for this November election for quite a while. Now’s your time to make her work ‘worthwhile’ by making use of all that’s there. Give her some support. Now off I go to tweet the one above, Df. Thanks

So right, vc:) She has worked tirelessly…and as a great labor of love so that all of us may have the tools that we need, at our disposal, for knowledge and facts about “What IS Working” ! Bless her…she is a treasure! The rest, as they say, is up to US!
I just posted her site on Women for Obama’s Dashboard site….she deserves some kudos and looks for all she has done:)
She’s also a very dedicated volunteer and donor. Love her site and refer to it often.
This one really hits home for seniors and their children who are helping them navigate through the Medicare maze.

'All you have to do is call and I'll be there….' (James Taylor visits Hollywood, Fla OFA office, Sept 14) twitpic.com/auxs1t— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) September 15, 2012
WASHINGTON, DC — Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum attacked the media and “smart people” for not being on the side of conservatives in a speech to the Values Voter Summit on Saturday.
“We will never have the media on our side, ever, in this country,” Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, told the audience at the Omni Shoreham hotel. “We will never have the elite, smart people on our side.”
The media “doesn’t like the other side,” Santorum said. “And not necessarily, I would argue, because they agree with them, but because they can influence the country.
“If just a few people make decisions about what this world looks like, what this country looks like, then you have people sitting in offices at major media outlets and Hollywood who think they can deal with a small group of people, to get them to jump through the hoops they want you to,” Santorum said.
Santorum also criticized the libertarian wing of the Republican party for not supporting what he sees as the pillars of conservatism: religion and family.
“When it comes to conservatism libertarian types can say, oh, well you know, we don’t want to talk about social issues,” Santorum said. “Without the church and the family, there is no conservative movement, there is no basic values of America.”
Santorum is nutter than a fruit cake.
huh? Is it just me, or did that sound like word salad? I need $arah Pay’em to translate.
Cookemom, it isn’t just you. The guy was always an embarrassment as a PA senator and now he’s gotten just plain crazy and incoherent. He sounds like an old man in the wilderness ranting at the wind and rain. Of course, he’s never going to get smart people to agree with him. No sane ones either.
Like Bill Clinton said it takes a lot of brass to accuse somebody of doing what you’re doing.

Did Adelson engineer Obama-Netanyahu crisis?
It is as if Sheldon Adelson is prepared to do almost anything, in addition to donating money, for President Barack Obama to be ousted from office.
13 September 12 10:56, Matti Golan
What is the connection between the Netanyahu-Obama-Romney triangle and the latest Iran controversy? Is the answer peace in Israel and the world, or is the connection Sheldon Adelson?
Fact: Adelson is one of the biggest donors and supporters of Republican candidate for president Mitt Romney. Adelson is investing not only money, but a lot of passion and desire as well. He is acting like a man for whom the ouster of President Barack Obama from office is more important than his health; as if it is the last thing that he wants to achieve in his life. It is as if he is prepared to do almost anything, in addition to donating money, for that to happen.
Iran and the Jews
Fact: One of the things that Romney really needs is the support of the Jews, whose votes in key swing states could decide the election. But Jewish support traditionally goes to the Democrats. What can be done to change that this time?
Fact: Almost all US Jews vote for the candidate who they think will be good for Israel. Who decides this? Mostly Israel itself, of course. In other words: the prime minister of Israel.
Netanyahu for Adelson-Romney
Fact: Adelson is the biggest patron of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (and of his family). Adelson believes that Netanyahu’s leadership is essential for the existence of the Jewish people. He does not merely think this; he acts on it. Donations? That’s obvious. But he does for Netanyahu something that no other rich man has probably ever done for the candidate he supports: Adelson established a newspaper for Netanyahu (and his family). Adelson bought journalists to write only praise for the prime minister (and his family); journalists, who after all of Netanyahu’s talk, “explain” how right he is. Journalists who cannot, in other words do not dare, find any flaw in Netanyahu’s deeds and decisions.
“Adelson (Israel) Today”
The newspaper “Adelson (Israel) Today” has a very large circulation, not because of its quality, of which it has none, but because it is free; a free newspaper. Now “Adelson pays”. Huge sums; and I write as a man who knows how much money a newspaper consumes. But “Adelson Pays” and pays, and pays. For Netanyahu (and his family).
It’s Adelson, stupid
Fact: Let us get back to Romney. A remark or hint by Netanyahu that Obama is bad for Israel is worth something to Romney… maybe the presidency. Repeated hints that Obama will do nothing about Iran, or that “Hillary Clinton is expediting the centrifuges” – their value to Romney in gold cannot be estimated. A serious crisis with the Americans and confrontations with their officials sends a message: Obama is bad – and not just for the Jews. For humanity. For the universe. He is a dangerous man. He is firing up the centrifuges. He is bringing closer a nuclear Holocaust on Israel, and maybe on America, too.
The conclusion: Vote for Romney, just like Adelson wants.
Questions: Does “Adelson Today” want Netanyahu to help Adelson with Romney, and what will happen if Netanyahu should he want to refuse? Can he permit himself to refuse?
Hey @davidgregory Are you gonna have Adelson on #MeetTheBirchers to chat with Bibi & #NEOCONSTER Condi tinyurl.com/9zakucm cc: @stefcutter— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 15, 2012
Hmmm . . Adelson stated he plans to spend 100 million to see Romney elected. Of course, he’s already spent 50 million on the situation in the Middle East. You know, the one that led to the death of a US Ambassador, and four American servicemen and spurred protests in various countries in the region. Of course, PBO already knows all of this. Nixon did this same thing with Vietnam. Romney & Adelson are pulling from his playbook. I think it will all fall apart as the FBI/CIA/NSA, DIA continues their investigation into the connection between the inflammatory YouTube vid and the ME crisis. Their findings will not bode well for Netanyahu. This was an operation by the GOPKKK, K*Koch brothers, Adelson, MITTNOCCHIO, and members of his campaign team.
I think the idea that all American Jews will vote simply on the basis of what Netanyahu says is completely wrong. There are some portion of American Jews that may put Israel first, but many more use their common sense and good judgment when they vote, just like the rest of us.
PBO has HUGE lead over MITTNOCCHIO among Jewish voters. Two Jewish brothers were among the three who died trying to register blacks voters in Miss during the Civil Rights movement. Racebaiting and hatemongering would turn off most Jewish voters to MITTNOCCHIO. The other problem for MITTNOCCHIO is the fact their faith tradition calls on them to help less fortunate among us, something totally antithetical to the GOP policy agenda.
Yeah. I think that Jewish Americans vote solely on Isreal is bogus, too. Obama holds a decisive lead even as we speak. What might be true, though, is older Jews in places like Florida might be frightened my this Adelson business. I guess we need Sarah Silverman videos again.
Senator Barbara Boxer has written letter to BiBi regarding the Presidents strong support for Israel. It is a request for him to clarify what he means that America is not supporting. Very Interesting letter, I am proud of her.http://forward.com/articles/162738/barbara-boxer-hits-out-at-netanyahu/
List of devastating videos Mitt doesn’t want you to see…(h/t DK) Here’s one….Chuckle, chuckle….
Another….because, you know…he just loves American workers…
So, “Rachel Maddow,” of the hidden camera at the dinner party, returned to YouTube as “Anne Onymous”
Did RM do this?? I missed that.
No, df. The original YouTube posting of the #BainMitt dinner party video that described a Chinese sweat shop that he did actually purchase was made under the user name of Rachel Maddow. It had received more than 60000 views in less than 72 h when MSNBC and Maddow succeeded in getting the account canceled. Whomever ‘Anne Onymous’ is, that person had claimed that they have a much longer version of the video (these clips suggest that that is true) and were offering to share it with all corporate media folk. We’ll see …
Oh…because I have seen that Chinese sweatshop video before (which is why I referenced the Dollar/day difference)…had no idea of the background story.
Happy to share the info with you, df!! #PRESSON

MITT ROMNEY QUESTIONS: ARE YOU BETTER OFF TODAY THAN 4 YEARS AGO?
ANSWER: YES, AND HERE’S THE AD THAT EXPLAINS WHY. THANKS SO MUCH FOR ASKING MITT.
Obama Explains in 60 Seconds Why You’re Better Off Today than You Were 4 Years Ago
By: Jason EasleySeptem
This may be the best ad yet that the Obama campaign has put out. The ad balances reminding people where we were in 2008 with where we are in 2012. It is also contains some subtle contrasts that are very effective. By linking Romney’s plan for the economy to the collapse of 2008 while using Bill Clinton to link Obama’s growth to past prosperity, the Obama campaign is sending the message to voters that Romney will undo the progress that has been made under this president. The second contrast involves the repetition of the word forward at the end of the ad. The message is clear. Obama equals forward. Romney equals backward.
The Obama campaign did something in sixty seconds that the Romney campaign has never been able to do. They explained why people should vote for them. Mitt Romney is so intent on making this election a referendum on President Obama that he has not bothered to tell anyone why they should vote for him.
Mitt Romney left Obama an opening with the are you better off question, and the president walked right through it and slammed the door shut behind him.
