Obama is the greatest president in modern history.
congrats Jeff. Hey everybody! Drinks are on Jeff. Woo Hoo
You’re are correct, sir!!
Congrats on first too!
Yes, and is there someone better than him even in ancient history?? I don’t think so. xoxo We are the lucky ones.
First? No … really?
I see that I was not … it is ok, it was my anxiety about Michelle being late that kept me refreshing the page. Now to check and make sure all is okay! Love TOD.
Missed it by a hair, dd. A very respectable second.
That is my FIRST second. I’ll take it!!
Who you callin’ a Ho?
just saw you response. LMAO
aloha and good morning chips and tods!
Really love the way #PBO spiked #BainMitt on China in his speech this morning as the US was announcing it had filed a trade suit against China:

Well the ‘curse’ is in full effect. ie “May you live in interesting times.”
Seriously tho, it’s a great time to be alive. Pundits and haters be damned.
“What the cynics don’t realize is the ground has shifted beneath them” -Sen.BarackObama
****waves ‘severely’ at all at TOD****
Waves severely backatcha! I translate this to mean we grow more in times that are hard, as we have to apply our creative sense to solve our problems! It is a time to treasure, and for sure it is not boring!
I think it was a curse meaning ‘may there always be something rearing it’s ugly head in your path’. Of course in this case it is intentionally being brought about by a rabid extremism.
While I don’t mean to lay this as a curse on anyone, sometimes I think, ‘we are living in interesting times’, and it make me think of this old saying.
The old “challenge” vs “opportunity” argument that needs to be remembered during interviews.
Wtg, Jeff! I’ll have a jasmine tea! And I could not agree more wholeheartedly with your affirmation of PBO, nor, I surmise, would any of these folks in attendance! Beautiful crowds, so FIRED UP! So late getting to lunch today, I am battling a plummeting blood sugar count, so will lurk a bit while I feast on chicken cordon bleu with rice and zucchini cheese sauce. Alright!
Read your comment and my stomach growled at me
:oops:, sorry, LS, mine is almost done reprimanding me for waiting too long to eat, but it has been a whopper of a morning, I’ll be fine shortly, hope you recover!
Did I mention tossed salad, followed by a bran muffin? :oop:
Okay, I read that too quickly and thought you said ‘brain muffin’ and I was about to ask WTF?!
Well if someone develops a recipe for ‘brain muffin’ we can send some to the idjits in the ‘librul media’
…although I doubt it will do them any good…
Let me tell you, if they made one, I could use a brain muffin here at work.
Easy does it Chips! Bran is very good for the brain, and I suppose it could matter more depending on which end of your body your brain is located! That could cover quite a few people, eh? (not here on TOD, or in the WH!)
lol you’re killing me, in between the laughter….
FLOTUS is finally live now. Yay!
Thank goodness … I worry about the two of them, no make that four of them … Joe and Jill too.
Did you all see this? You know I hate linking HP, but….
Saw that Chips, I was just coming to post that.
The overwhelming majority of voters who back President Barack Obama do so because they are “dependent on government” and “believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing,” Mitt Romney told a closed-door gathering of about 30 major donors earlier this year, according to video of the event that has surfaced on the Internet…
So he not only trashes POTUS, but he trashes over half the country- we who voted for him. What a stoooopid mofo.
Anyone check out Romney’s claim that 47% do not pay income tax?
hahaha just what his medicare, medicaid, SS, food stamp, fuel assistance base wants to hear. Maybe it makes them feel like they are not dependent on Government to hear him talk to them like this.
I work with elderly and most of them are on some sort of assistance. And a high percentage in his audience will be there before they know it. So meh. Let him spew. It’s his base and apparantly they love it, cause if they didn’t they would leave.
So long as there is more of us voting, i’m okay with it.
Here are the videos.
I like the one where he says his promo team worked for nutNyahoo. There’s a calling card.
i think it’s hilarious that myth and his money bags-friends forget the wait staff are humans with ears, voices, and cell phones.
There’d better be outrage over this. Remember ‘clinging to guns and God’ that the RWNJ’s were so OUTRAGED about?
Let’s see some strong Democratic outrage and the MSM better effing cover it.
Except – the clinging to guns and religion has turned out to be quite insightful and true (Santorum even confirmed it). Romney’s statement is just offensive to half the people he wishes to govern.
You hit it exactly, theo67.
So I guess this will be played on a continuous loop by the librul media like the cling to guns and religion line was… Right?
I also saw this on twitter, and linked directly to Mother Jones!
Pretty disgusting, and I’m not surprised at the disdain Romney has for most Americans. He’s a hateful, pathetic, greedy, bastard!
It’s important that everyone save these clips. Too many times in the past I’ve book marked damaging video such as this only to find them removed when I went back to find them. I’m sure this one will be also before long.
So please save these vids when you come across them. Load them from your desktop to a youtube acct and send them around to everyone you know as well as twitter, local media and rwnj websites.
Yes, Chips. You and UT originally brought all our attention on 24 August 2012 to one of the segments of this video that was posted to YouTube under the name ‘Rachel Maddow’:
It achieved >70K views before MSNBC succeeded in having the account removed. Since then various other segments have been posted under names like ‘Anne Onymous’
One of the final comments that ‘Rachel Maddow’ posted before the account was closed included a statement that a longer version of the video existed and that “MSN” were being contacted to discuss full disclosure of the video and that the contents were going to be very revealing about #BainMitt.
These new segments certainly deliver on that claim. What remains is for the appropriate forensic analysis to verify that it is Mitt Romney speaking and the structure of the audio stream is consistent with it being a continuous statement and not a bunch of stuff cobbled together. From my perspective in listening to the various segments, the voice is convincingly Romney’s and the nature of the statements being made imply contiguity, i.e., he said it in one continuous monologue.
Dear @DavidCornDC when will ya release the full video of #BainMitt regaling huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/17/mit… his wealthy supporters with lies & exploits— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 17, 2012
Urge all of you to Tweet or contact David Corn by email, postings on blogs, etc., and request that he provide the full video just as soon as he can verify that it really is Romney, as noted in my comment above.
During the next 50 days, it would be an excellent way to educate all Americans about #BainMitt.

Any Dem, or Dem spokesman, who gets on teevee and repeats the rt. wing gripe, that Romney should be ahead by 10 points given the unemployment numbers, like Clarence Page did just now on Bashir, should be banned from any future appearance between now and the election. Time is too short and critical for this kind of unhelpful commentary right now.
I agree. Not only is it not true, but it is an indirect insult to our President, his record, his accomplishments, along with a failure to hold the obstructionist GOP in congress accountable.
It also ignores the fact that Romney is not offering any viable plan to reduce the deficit (his plan increases the deficit by at least $5 Trillion) or create jobs. He has no history of creating jobs, and he’s doubling down on the failed trickle-down methodology that has only increased the gap between the rich and the poor.
President Obama, on the other hand, inherited a failing, crashing economy, rescued the country from a great depression, helped to create 4.5 million jobs, made huge investments in the future and new technologies, and kept millions from plunging into poverty.
President Obama offers a clear case for re-electing him in this time of a fragile economy, because he ALREADY took over from a time of absolute crisis and made things better. Romney has nothing to offer.
Well to be fair, the Repubs were counting on the relatively high unemployment rate being their way to win the elections. Unfortunately for them, their candidate is so repugnant that an unemployment rate over 8% is just not enough to topple President Obama this time around.
What angers me is that noone is asking the Repubs what the hell they did to lower the unemployment rate. All they’ve done is say no to everything President Obama has suggested (including his job bill).
My goodness but this blog is hard to keep up with. I’m finally on vacation (okay, again) and was hoping to do some catching up but being so many days behind, I’ve come to the conclusion that there just is No catching up. I snooze, I lose.
Have barely kept up with the headlines and they’ve been fantastic. Love how Putin rebuked the neocons, how China called out Robme, how the Saudis and Syrian contradicted all the Liar said with their deeds, and amused at how the pundits are failing at their spin game.
Listening to the pundits it would seem that their livelihoods are banking on them getting the MittMeister into office. I mean are they behaving desperately or what?!
I’m heading to NY etc this week and I’ve printed out posters and pictures to leave along the way. Nowhere will be immune, including highway bathrooms. I plan to tape these to walls and leave them everywhere I go.
Keep up the good fight y’all.
I really need to stop going on the MSM! Currently on huffpost they have a story about Romney speaking at a private fundraiser and stating his dad was born in Mexico and how all Obama voters are on social security, etc.
Sounds like it’s time to ask for his birth cert
He wasn’t born, he was hatched..
I’ve seen hatched lizards with more warmth. I really think he’s an alien experiment gone awry
Rachel showed that video that HuffPuff has up a few weeks ago…..
I think this is a new one Linda, the Bain one was seen before.
FLOTUS is the perfect advocate for Pres. Obama on the stump. She’s amazing.
Isn’t she great? It’s like she was born to do this.
I wanted to bring over a comment from the last thread from FoxFireTx
This is a VERY INSIGHTFUL memo, and it underscores our need to ensure we take BACK the HOUSE and KEEP THE SENATE!!!
It’s not enough for President Obama to be re-elected. Although it’s my primary goal, I also want to ensure we set up the President for success!! That means taking back the HOUSE!!!
Does Kristen Welker tell you anything new? She just admitted she got an email from the Robney campaign, and that she uses that for talking points, I guess?
She is terrible.
Oh, and this meme about the debates and how great Robney is, and how he can narrow the Gap- garbage!
It’s also a huge opportunity fir the President to get his message out and tell the truth about his policies…
President Obama is live in Columbus …
PBO just finished in Columbus …
Is Steve Kornacki a Republican ?
Well…he constantly is sawing that Romney can still pull this off….he can still win…
He’s right – if people don’t get out and vote.
Nailed it Chips. That is the underlying point that Kornacki has been trying to hammer. That people need to get their asses out and vote. Romney and his ilk are not above stealing the election. Voter turn-out is very crucial.
Hiya UT, I’m as guilty as anyone – hey, probably more guilty – about getting excited over good polls, Romney disasters, etc, but we all know the turnout could be the most dangerous enemy in November if people don’t getting up off their asses, as you said. Add to that worry the voter suppression stuff going on, well, there’s a long way to go, much as I’d adore to think PBO will do it comfortably. As others have said, I’ll never, ever, ever trust these bastards, they’re capable of anything.
Amen Chips! Sometimes I feel that lost in all the opinions and polls is the simple fact that the only thing that really matters is how many of us get out and actually vote. I’ll do my part to get as many out there but until those numbers roll in on election night anything is possible.
+ 1,000,000,000 Donna – but it’s volunteers like you who CAN make it happen, thank you.
Just saw a tweet that 37% of eligible African Americans are not registered to vote.
Dem’s would never lose an election if we all voted. It’s such a God damned struggle. I don’t understand it.

Mitt Romney is a disgusting pig.
During a private fundraiser earlier this year, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a small group of wealthy contributors what he truly thinks of all the voters who support President Barack Obama. He dismissed these Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, who don’t assume responsibility for their lives, and who think government should take care of them. Fielding a question from a donor about how he could triumph in November, Romney replied:
There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.
Romney went on: “[M]y job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
Mother Jones has the videos on their website.
I co-sign on the disgusting pig sentiment
THIS from a guy who is one of the biggest tax evader jerks EVER.
Mr. Romney I depend on my ability to get up and work everyday. We Obama supporters in my family take care of ourselves but it is a comfort to know that should we need the assistance of our government that it would be there to help us.
Now Romney, you can Kiss my Grits!!!
His own dad was on welfare as a youth. Romney is just an arrogant, entitled jerk who believes that his privilege signals that he’s better than other people. He’s still the bully holding people down and shaving their hair. I’d rather, any day of the week, help to support others to have basic food and shelter than to live like Mitt, watching people working in slave conditions to make me rich. He is of extremely low character and has virtually no empathy for others.
that was great. Congrats Gloria
oh wow – that’s a tearjerker. :’)
OH, I love this! I’m all sniffley now.
Okay, now that’s why I’m talking about!!!!!!!!! Excellent video the best one yet! Beautiful job President Obama!

And Mitt Romney’s own father was on welfare after his family returned from Mexico (where they had fled from the US’ anti-bigamy laws). Just amazing, his lack of empathy and his pretending to have hit a triple after being born on third base.
PBO VOTERS NEED TO GET OUT AND VOTE ‘IN MASS’ AND TAKE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR GRANTED…MAY GOD DEEPLY BLESS AND STRENGTHEN OUR PRESIDENT…AKA…’OUR ENERGIZER BUNNY’ PRESIDENT!

Jeez, I go away for lunch, and David Corn comes out with this blistering expose of what that vile man thinks of “47%” of the American people. I really have to wonder if he even knows how to run a campaign.
he doesn’t know how to live like a decent human being so what do you expect?
LL, he is pure scum. How this man is able to solicit votes from anyone that is not a racist is beyond my comprehension.
Lineup of all of Romney’s Greatest Hits—-including the ‘all Dems are freeloaders’ and ‘unfortunately I was born to American parents, it would be easier to win the presidency if I was Latino’ (AWKWARD!) and ‘we’re going to only use (Miss) Ann sparingly so people don’t get tired of her’ (double awkward!) and more. Unbelievable. Can you imagine sending him out into the world? Ay yi yi yi yi yi yi!
This man is completely clueless!!!
I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Which is to be born in America
I want our Super Pac to get out an ad ASAP that’s titled, “This is what Romney thinks of You”
Holy shit. Here it comes. I cannot fathom how millions of people think Republicans are fit to run anything, much less the free world:
Here’s the original piece: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mckaycoppins/romneys-new-strategy-turns-right
Given that I don’t believe a word out of any of them, who the hell knows what they’ll do the next 50 days. We just know it will be nasty and we need to push on.
Jim Vandehien (SP?) is an ass. saying Willard will govern from the middle if he wins. then when Joy and Chris hold his feet to the fire, Jim went on attack about PBO: “how is he going to lead? from the center? from the left? i don’t know… both these candidates you don’t know how they will govern…” what a mother************* LIAR! How much does WIllard pay him to blow his wick?! that guy is such a liar. he went on Bill Maher’s show and said Politico wasn’t a rightwing rag. fricking liar!
Given the current crop of Republicans in Congress, teher is no way he could govern from the middle on either domestic or foreign policy issues.
My beloved brother died December 5, 2000. We got into an argument the last time we talked because he said that Dubya would HAVE to govern from the middle — after all, he’d lost the popular vote. I knew better.
Let’s be clear on one thing: this ‘severely’ conservative Romney is the REAL Romney because it represents greed and a disdain for the “other” and believes that anyone who doesn’t ‘succeed’ is ‘deficient’ in the eyes of God. THAT’s the real Romney. It was the ‘moderate’ Romney that was the complete fake.
Why did he end up with 31% approval in MA? Because, except for health care, he governed like the RWNJ that he truly is.
My only consolation losing my brother was that (1) he didn’t live to see Bush installed as President; and (2) he didn’t have to witness 9/11. I miss him every day of my life.
I just tweeted him about being a tool. He was doing his best to defend Willard at PBO’s expense. Does he think we have been living under a rock? We know how PBO will govern. We know the “specifics” of his plans. Just because #MythRomney isn’t offering anything specific, and his campaign is coming apart does not equate to PBO not offering any specifics. What a POS!!
what’s his twitter handle?
I listen to the dam idiot, just barely. I think Matthews allow Vandehien to much darn time to spread his GOPolitical lies.
The JV is a TBGOPER. He worked for a GOPer. I don’t remember the name now.
“how is he going to lead? ” say what. After 4 years of the whole world watching him lead? And we’re supposed to put any weight on his spewings?
Just another case of don’t believe your eye, believe what I tell you
FLOTUS was worth the wait. But I missed VP Biden and POTUS speech in Columbus.

The nation’s largest labor organization is backing President Obama’s complain on Chinese trade.
“Today, President Obama took decisive action against the Chinese government’s unfair trade actions to ensure that American workers can compete fairly – and win good jobs in the global economy. U.S. workers and businesses suffer when countries violate global trade rules. Unfair and imbalanced trade contributes to slow job growth and a weak economic recovery,” AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka said in a statement.
wow Romney truly hates half this country.. we’re nothing more than throw aways if we voted for President Obama. Which makes clear that he never had any intention of governing America.. merely of representing the the tiny minority he ‘connects’ with.. the uber wealthy white corporate owners. The rest of us are just lazy dumb brown / black folk who have our hands out.. I almost feel sorry for his stupidity, for his callousness, his dishonesty. Just a sickening pitiful human being w/ no love or respect for his fellow human beings.
I want to win this election bigger than any election in our history.
Is this why he wants to create a new peon class for half (or more) or the nation?

He’s the one who exposed the overseas shell corporations Romney has, he’s the one who exposed the outsourcing Romney did in China and other countries, he exposed a lot about Romney’s shoddy dealings from his tax returns.

New post everyone:
Supposedly, this photo went viral, because the Rightwing thought it was somebody taking a piss at the Presidents rally-
Nope! It was a SS Agent doing his Job!
Take a look?
That’s what I thought it was all along. How would Secret Service let someone just casually stand to the side of the President and take a leak? That didn’t even make sense. All by himself over there? Don’t they know that the Secret Service are in the bushes and on the roofs, watching for anything strange? And the thing went viral today – among some of the media, too. I couldn’t’ even be bothered to answer. it was a clear demonstration of how so many in the media never grew up past high school.
Nate is here to tell us that that Romney video is not really all that important in the grand scheme of things. I may be inclined to agree with him but not for the same reasons as he.
