C-SPAN * cbcfalc2012 * CBS 1 * CBS 2
Michelle, looks fab.
Congrats donna on #1!
Yay! Congrats Donna!
Heya Chips. Thanks. You are too much. Love ya.
She really does. Her gown was amazing!
OMG! I’m I first?
Wow a first for being first. I’d like to thank the academy….
First! :lol: Where did you see Michelle? I haven’t seen her yet.
Hellooooooooooo VC, Donna’s just referring to that 2011 photo in the post, no sign of the 2012 CBC Michelle yet!
Hellooo Donna (video)! How’s it going?
Great vc how are you?
Okay! Can’t complain. The singer doing ‘At Last’ reminds me vividly of Beyonce’s tribute to the Obamas. THAT memory is a very touching one for me.
I know what you mean. Every time I hear that song it takes me back to POTUS and FLOTUS dancing on that wonderful night.
…. can’t wait for the January 2013 dance ;-)
Oh the love. The tissues please.
I am watching the first dance and beaming with such pride like it was January 2009
Aaaaaahhhh, CC! Oooooooo. I’ll save it until after FLOTUS is finished. :razz: :razz:
Just re-watched this. You left out this crucial part – the piece to catch those whose eyes are still dry. The quality isn’t great BUT the emotions are over the moon natural
Wonder which song Beyonce will sing for President Obama and First Lady Michelle first dance January 2013.
ok thanks, I got stuck on these youtube videos for over two hours. what great memories!
That brings back memories for me. I was at one of the Inaugural Balls that night hoping to see the Obamas only to find out that was not one of the ten balls they would go to. That was disappointing, but after such an exciting day and jubilent night it didn’t matter.
I had won 2 tickets to the Inauguration in my OR Senator’s lottery. I had scheduled my two week annual visit to my daughter living in DC with the Inauguration date smack in the middle much earlier on my airmiles. She got us tickets for the ball as my Xmas gift and I took her to the Inauguration. It was a once in a lifetime experience of all the right things coming together at once for me.
She lives in Munich, Germany now. This time around I will be watching at home from my WARM house although I will miss the excitement of the day but not the freezing weather.
CSPAN ONE TV is also going to carry FLOTUS’ speech live at 7:30PM ET.
Our beloved First Lady has a most lovely figure. She also has a mind as sharp as a tack.
Thank you The Obama Diary for all the information that you offer to the supporters of this wonderful President. I’m not a poster but a fulltime lurker lol. I pass on so many of your post to my 92 year old mom, and friends, who loves our President as much as I do.
Welcome Ingaaaaa….and you have officially become a poster,,, :-)
Thank you so much Inga, lots of love to your Mom!
Hi Inga! Thanks for de-lurking and sharing your support. Love to you, your Mom and friends. Welcome!
welcome “from the undisclosed location” – we are so happy to have you.
Send our love and thats to your mom for her love and support of PBO
Big welcome to you, Inga:)
Lurk no more, inga! The air out here is wonderfully breatheable! :)
Heading home shortly, see you,
I’m really digging that jazz.
Pres Obama on big video screen for overflow crowd at campaign rally in Milwaukee – his first one in Wisconsin. http://t.co/XPFUPuOg— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 22, 2012
There is a Kossack (Adam AZ) who had diaried that he and his wife had gotten tickets and planned to attend PBO’s rally in Wisconsin today. I would love to hear a report from him about how it went. It must have been a great experience for him.
Just finished phone banking, which I also hosted and did data entry for. Almost 700 calls made, with about 120 contacts and close to 100 strong PBO supporters who are fired up to vote!! Yay!
Missed what looks like to have been the rally or rallies! Can’t wait for video!!
THIS is how we win!
Thanks for all your help doing the phone banking. So many people are reluctant to pitch in that way, but it’s essential.
thanks for all your hard work – one vote at a time will win the poll that matters (which is election day results)
Terrific, Rita. That’s a great outcome.
Thanks, everyone! On to Camp Obama tomorrow to train newbies about data coordination. Love volunteering for OFA :)
So what happened to the PETA protesters?
They were the ones heckling- the President Swatted them away, like a fly.
These CBC folks need to get their act together when introducing the POTUS and FLOTUS. There was this same weird kind of introduction when POTUS spoke there last year.
FLOTUS looks stunning! I love that dress.
Is there any more information about PBO’s appearance at Bowling Green Ohio? My daughter is in school there.
Thanks Jovie; I hope she has heard more about it. I would love to be able to take the day off to visit her and she the President but I know I can’t. My daughter is a teaching assistant and MA student there, so I don’t know if she will be free to attend either.
FLOTUS is stunning (as usual). I am in awe of this woman. She inspired me to eat healthier and to get off the sofa and work out. I’ve lost 38 lbs so far. I’ll never look as good as her but I can dream ;)
Congratulations donna on your success.
Wow, Donna! She’s definitely influenced my life as well. And her speech is INCREDIBLE!!
OMG, sometimes I have to pinch myself that I have the privilege to witness this amazing moment in time.
Congratsssssssssssss…..me too Donna….
i know can make a pot of greens without meat…the true test will be thanksgiving….i’m making the greens… :-)
Woot! Way to go donna!
Hey Girl, I missed your Birthday this past week. Happy Belated Birthday!!!!
Congrats too Donna. I am down 20lbs too. When I was her age I never looked as good as she does but would sure love to be healthier now. Keep up the great work.
I could be wrong, but I think this woman might be voting for Pres Obama (Usinger's Famous Sausage, Milwaukee, Sept 22) http://t.co/2zVVkQh2— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) September 22, 2012
HAHAHAHA! Damn…looks like she needs a fainting couch…
She is welcome to use mine….
…and a naughty mat and a box of tissues.
How funny and cute is that!!
That is funny! I think we all can probably relate to the possibility of slackjaw in his presence. Hopefully, no drool.
Ha! That too would be me. I will never forget that time that President Obama came to the 5 Guys Restaurant in my building at work. Everyone grabbed their cell phones (to take pictures) and made a bee-line down stairs to see him. Silly me, I grabbed my purse and ran downstairs as if he was going to take me with him back to the White House. I still laugh at myself to this day about that scene.
See my comment below that’s timed same as yours. ;)
That’s you, ain’t it Chips? Or is it Hf? Df? DD4O? Pamela? I give up – could be anyone of you naughty mat regulars. SMH
Goodness, his profile is just beautiful. Someone put this man on a coin already!
And Mt. Rushmore! Mighty fine, plenty room for him there! Won’t that pizz off the idjits!
This is so hilarious. I feel for the girl!

Mrs. First Lady Obama is talking the truth!
Michelle Obama coming to Cincinnati
09/22/12 at 1:32pm by pkostyu | 3 Comments
Michelle Obama during her Feb. 23, 2012 visit to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
COLUMBUS — First lady Michelle Obama will make a campaign stop in Cincinnati on the first day of early voting in the state.
Details of the visit on Oct. 2 have not been released by the campaign. President Barack Obama will be in the state on Wednesday with visits to Bowling Green and Kent.
The GOP ticket is also visiting Ohio. On Monday,vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan will be in Lima before coming to Cincinnati on Tuesday. There he will join Mitt Romney. Details of the visits have not been announced.
On Tuesday, Romney will go onto Dayton before moving to Westerville, Cleveland and Toledo on Wednesday.
Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland and Brad Woodhouse, communications director for the Democratic National Committee, will shadow Romney and Ryan, making stops in the same cities the Republicans do.
Today's unbelievable gaffe. Mitt's 2011 tax return lists US as a "foreign country." Yes. bit.ly/R8lHtw— Roger Ebert (@ebertchicago) September 22, 2012
Tweet that to Stephanie cutter. She could use this…
Okay should I start a birther movement about Mitt???
I’m sorry, but this is hilarious!! :lol:
BWAHAHAHAHA. Sweet Schadenfreude.
So @MittRomney @AnnDRomney #YouPeople, besides despising the #47Percent, consider the USA a Foreign Country tinyurl.com/8f9taty @stefcutter— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 23, 2012
@ebertchicago: Oh the irony! An alien IS running 4 the presidency and he's been overlooked! Seems clear Mitt has no real commitment 2 USA!— Vick C. (@sonamie) September 23, 2012
I think Mitt will claim citizenship wherever it suits his purpose best at any given moment, in much the same way he claims residency in different states. His flexibility confused his minions. Of course, for a man with all his money he doesn’t seem to know how to hire competent people. Wonder how well he pays?
@ebertchicago: IMO .@MittRomney's only allegiance is to his $$$! Wouldn't surprise me if after his Nov. loss he claims citizenship elsewhere— Vick C. (@sonamie) September 23, 2012
maybe the time has come for Mitt to get a cleansing – political garbage seems to be come out all around him
Honestly? If so, this is so hilarious. The comedians are going to have a good time with this.
Oh, Lord, that is too much. Of course, he’ll say he never reads his tax returns, just signs them, but he, in the end, is accountable for everything in them and this is a lulu.
Retweeted to followers. Romney’s tax attorneys and accountants and campaign staff are some seriously dumb phucks. You cannot make this stuff up. I definitely want to see Romney’s birth certificate (long form) and I want to know if he holds dual citizenship.
doesn’t US stand for Upper-class Switzerland?
The rising indie band, The National, will be performing concerts in Cincinnati and Columbus encouraging young adults and students to vote early in support of President Barack Obama.
Voter registration events at several Ohio college campuses will also be targets of interest for The National.
Formed in Cincinnati around 13 years ago, they are now based out of Brooklyn, NY. This quintet consists of five members: Matt Berninger (vocalist), Aaron Dessner (guitar, bass, piano), Bryce Dessner (guitar), Scott Devendorf (bass), and Bryan Devendor (drums). Their most stand-out characteristic is the vocals, as Berninger sings in deep, baritone fashion that can be noted almost instantaneously by any fan of The National.
Where have I been all this time? Michelle seems to be killing it in speech after speech. She should run for office.
Let’s get this Obama re-elected. Then after 2016 if FLOTUS decide to change her mind, she has my vote. But she is always saying politics is not in her future.
Her speech was amazing, brought tears to my eyes. If anyone can inspire people to vote she can! Reminds me of her NC speech at the college: 5 votes per precinct made the difference in 2008. Phone banked today to CO. Every contact with a supporter might make the difference. We need to sweep WH, House and Senate, then change filibuster. We can!
FLOTUS is really really inspiring.. loving her speech.
OMG, it’s just FIERCE.
OK, I’m totally choked up now.
Yes she is so wonderful.. just fills me up listening to her.
It’s a fantastic speech. Filled with inspiring tales, deep truths…
Interesting that Karen Finney RT’d this … :)

omg she’s talking about one of my favorite photos of POTUS.
Greatest photo ever, sherijr.
Lady, you are Not Only, quick, efficient, but you totally ROCK, my Lady.
What I love most about President and Mrs Obama – they always come down to the level of the children – so many people do not understand that when talking to children – it is just delightful to see the interaction – and this one is perfect.
Also too – your ability to have all the pics at your fingertips, Miss Chips – is wonderful.
wow Chips, thank you so much for posting it :)
If it is Not too much to ask, Lady Chips, perhaps we could have this photo right after Mrs. Obama’s speech when you post the total speech here. I was crying like a baby. I was a mess listening to Mrs. Obama today.
That part of her speech got me all choked up. She’s such an inspiring individual.
I am so glad that she mentioned the fact that the White House was built by slaves (as is the case for many buildings in DC).
I am sorry I missed what appears to be yet another of FLOTUS’ wonderful speeches. Today, in San Diego, CA, I was out volunteering for OFA. We we were calling voters in the battleground state of Colorado to make sure that they are registered.
Great work nathkatun7!
You can see Michelle’s speech here:
Thank you so much Chipsticks for sharing Michelle’s speech! FLOTUS was wonderful as always. I knew I could count on TOD to keep me up to date on everything I miss. Thank you also for all your wonderful work on behalf of President Obama; but especially for your infectious sense of humor that has attracted so many smart and witty people to your blog.
Super!!! Thank you nath!!!!
I ADORE Michelle!
I second that. She brought it. What a woman.
I third that. And fourth and fifth and sixth that.
Me, too! I don’t know if we should wish it on their family, but she would make a wonderful POTUS.
She kept that speech TO THE POINT!
she never fails to bring me to tears, to warm my heart.
Michelle was fantastic! She is an awesome speaker!!
We've got your back (Milwaukee, September 22) http://t.co/2sOe91dc— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) September 23, 2012
PBO and the masses are gonna give these secret service guys a heart attack one day. All this showing of affection.
This lady is grabbing on to PBO like her life literally depended on it. She hugs him as if he were her youngest son returning from college, or from war. My goodness…
funny but when I just saw this photo of the hug, I immediately thought that the lady is hugging PBO like her life depends on him and yes I thought this is one embrace you would give to a dear child to remind them that you will fight all the harm that may come their.
hahaha,,,yes they do…they love our PBO and so do i….i have never been so conected to a President in my life..
What can I say about our First Lady?
Nada. Isn’t SHE Lovely? What a woman.
She look lovely. But her words were moving, they hit home, she is a wonderful speaker and I don’t mind who knows it I am proud of our First Lady. Dam Proud. 4 More Years.
I volunteered at our OFA office today. This was my first shift. I want to thank Chips for this wonderful site and the regular commentators who bring so much passion and information. I would never have gone to volunteer without the inspiration I get from this blog and the people here. We will make Wisconsin blue.
Well done chitra! Way to step up! We CAN do this! :-)
Thanks for your volunteering chitra.
YAYAYAY, chitra!!!! Thank you so much for volunteering and being such a great supporter!! I hope you enjoyed it!!
Excellent! We always welcome new people with open arms!
Way to go, Chitra!!!! Thank you
Yes We Can
You go, chitra! :mrgreen:
Nice job, chitra! Bet you met pretty amazing people, just like you:) Thank you for working for the re election of this awesome President!
Well done, Chitra! I am sure that with people like you, Wisconsin will remain blue. This is the time when we must pitch in and do all we can to re-elect the President! I small in. I will be volunteering any free time I have between now and November 6th! We cannot afford to go backward!
thanks a lot for choosing to volunteer for the re=election of PBO. We all need to do what ever we can to have a People’s Victory on Nov/6th
goooorgeous! “@txvoodoo: FLOTUS looking amazing. twitpic.com/axe5xn”— SportsGirl101 (@Arianna8927) September 22, 2012
Our media are GROTESQUE.
US State Dept. says CNN broke pledge by posting report on diary of American ambassador Christopher Stevens: apne.ws/Q784va -RAS— The Associated Press (@AP) September 23, 2012
They are extremely unprofessional, bought and paid by their friends in the Republican party. I always felt that CNN was a little too excited about this whole event – way more than they should have been considering someone got killed. They REALLY thought that this was going to help Mitt Romney and someone must’ve promised someone something. But it didn’t quite turn out the way they anticipated, so shit is now hitting the fan and someone is going to have hell to pay.
More CNN fail.
TeaNN is nothing to respect any more. To them it’s all about ratings. This network was one to respect when Ted Turner was owner. I don’t watch it any more. They are just like Fox, I have no respect for either one.
TeaNN with Anderson Cooper has Lost their minds. Their current head is a former Fox employee. TeaNN were trying to find some damaging thing to pin on the president to help Romney Out. They will deny it. But it is out for all to see. They didn’t even get permission from Christopher Stevens’ family. They used his personal Journal, then days later returned the Journal to them. And Anderson Cooper does a segment on Keeping Them Honest? Perhaps, Cooper should 1st practice what he speaks?
CNN was the ONLY channel that had a Teabagger, Michele Bachmann, give a rebuttal to Pres Obama’s SOTU address. They hired Glenn Beck, Stuart Barney, Lou Dobb, Eric Erickson, Dana Roesch, Will Cain, Ari Fleischer, Alex Castellanoes, etc. They frequently bring Pam Geller, a racist, bigoted woman to spout her bigotry about Muslims on their channel. CNN is totally damaging it’s brand. I think, that the Powers to be is doing that deliberately to render CNN useless. Will they wake Up in time to save themselves? Only Time Will Tell.
I used to like Anderson Cooper, can’t stand him anymore.
Isn’t it amazing anniebella, that a lot of media people who we thought were okay before PBO got elected have turned out to be the worse kinds of media hacks you’ve ever seen? Cooper, Brokaw, Rather…
Actually I remember in 2008 that Cooper pushed the Rev wright story hard and flogged it to death. That’s when I realized what a phony hack Anderson is.
Indeed, Hf, it’s all PBO’s FAULT that my eyes have been opened not only to American politics, but to the real role of the president AND to the mockery that was previously called American media. There’s a lot he’s responsible for within my life – and I haven’t even mentioned my TOD addiction! ;) ;)
He’s a complete ass.
Your morbid stunt @andersoncooper @CNN tinyurl.com/8wmh44e to hurt our President, politically, is now exposed.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 23, 2012
Great Job as always, Bobfr. You are awesome.
You know what Bob, I am thankful everyday to know that you are around refusing to let the failed 4thEstate get away with lies and nonsense! Without strong and ethical voices, like yours, that are able to use alternative media to push back, the so called mainstream media would have guaranteed the election of Romney and other right wing Republicans.
Thank you Nena and nath. And, nath, your constant encouragement really helps!!
Bob, I can’t even begin to tell you how much you’ve inspired me, especially after I found out that you are almost in my age group (I am a couple of years older than you), but yet you have so much energy and have mastered the current technology. I alway look forward to reading your tweets because they always reassure me that I am not alone. I am not alone in the way I feel about the failure of most of the so called mainstream media to tell American people the TRUTH!
How did CNN even get procession of Ambassador Stevens personal diary?
Someone must have communicated to them where it was. I think the GOP had a hand in this whole operation which resulted in the ambassador’s death and the US corporate media including TeaNN was complicit, just as they were in bed with Bush, Cheney & Co when it was time to get us into a war with Iraq.
Just found this in my email inbox. This is the group I’ve been working with in making phone calls to NC.
http://www.democraticunderground.com/1251103893. This should fire up all of us, especially the cut up picture. People are so filled with hate!
Don’t Boo…… VOTE :)
POTUS said that many times today. It was just lovely. It got to the point, that he would just say, Don’t Boo…..and he stopped and the audience finished with VOTE.
Great speech by our Flotus. I could have listened to her for another hour. Yes, I too choked up when she talked
about that famous picture and when she quoted scripture. We are truly blessed.
Chips thanks for that quick posting of the picture.
This is why we will win this November.

Yes!!! I couldn’t be out in the field this weekend bc I have walking pneumonia. I should be better for next week! #nodaysoff
Oh CK sorry to hear that. Please take care!
thank you, I will!
Get better collegekay. I thank everyone who is out there working there behinds off helping the Obama campaign. Thank You. Keep up the great work.
Take good care of yourself, CK ! (never knew pneumonia could walk – I often learn something new here in TODville!)
ohhh myyyy take care of yourself…pneumonia is serious….
Ck, hope you are planning on getting some good nights’ rest this weekend. You’ve been running on empty for some time now, so you really do need to stop and catch your breath. Feel better soon.
“You’ve been running on empty for some time now, so you really do need to stop and catch your breath.”
Same thing my mom has been telling me. You’re both right.
I hope you get well soon, CK! Take time to take care of yourself!. You’ve already done incredible work both fund raising and registering voters. There are many of us are out there trying to help re-elect the President who must step in your shoes while you take time to regain your health. Just remember CK, you don’t have to bear the burden of re-electing President Obama all by yourself.
It is important to vote every election, not just every four years. We have to know who and what is being elected in our local election, our school board. We have to know what’s going on. Because as some sit home on their butts, others are plotting to take us back, to take rights away from us we have already fought for. To pass laws we know nothing about till a 17 year old black kid is shot down.

New post soon!
Wisconsinites do not get too many chances to see the POTUS. 18K doesn’t include the over-flow, did it?
Waiting for pictures of FLOTUS tonight.
Me too :-)
Chips, while you’re waiting ;), this is very cool and you may want to feature it so everyone in PA starts pushing for it to happen, quickly!
“According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Montgomery and Alleghany Counties used a loophole in the law that allows Colleges and Nursing homes to issue voter ID’s to anyone who resides in their counties.
It also appears that other counties are seriously considering adopting the same approach.”
OHHHHHHH Bob..i take heart from this….
the push back on this voter suppression is picking up steam here in Philly…rallies headed by the NAACP and local unions were held here in Philly…and it seems to be the topic that is on the lips of everyday people….
we are moving Forward>>>>>>>>>>>
A lot of people were talking about this today. It’s such a great idea and helps to show how utterly ridiculous and poorly written the hastily put together photo ID law is. This was all about defeating the president in PA and now it’s coming back to bite its creators.
I hope the creators of the ID law in PA are up for re-election and lose big time as well as those who voted for the law. I also hope they can get around the law so they do not lose votes for PBO. My hope includes that those disenfranchised will not give up but pursue getting their vote to count no matter how hard it is. PBO has to have such overwhelming support that voter suppression and fraudulent counting will not prevent him from winning. I am thinking if PBO can get past the CU ruling with all the money coming in against him, the voter suppression attempts and the campaign lies told by the GOP and upheld by the media he can prove it won’t work. We need to get these things changed.
AnnieB, while you are waiting go back up to comment ~#19 and have a cry with Beyonce!
Thank you, hf!
Michelle Obama's CBC speech now available on C-SPAN – it's magnificent, treat yourself: c-span.org/Events/First-L…— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) September 23, 2012
Thank you Chips! What a treat. :)
Watching now. She looks SPECTACULAR! That dress, from what I can see, is off the hook!
What was with the camerawork though? :shock:
Pres. Obama & Gov. Romney will answer questions on the election’s biggest issues, this Sunday on #60Minutes 7:30 pm ET, 7 pm PT— 60 Minutes (@60Minutes) September 23, 2012
and those issues are:
1. myth r-money won’t say what he would do as president because he knows he’d never be elected if he told the truth.
2. myth r-money has hidden his vast wealth in tax havens overseas, and employed exotic tax loopholes at home to ensure there is no ‘trickle down’.
3. myth r-money has chosen foul r-lyin as his vicepresidential running mate; r-lyin has lied repeatedly on the record, demonstrating his unfitness to hold public office.
4. myth r-money and his wife queen ann have stated on the record that they disdain and dismiss all but the most wealthy americans, demonstrating their unfitness to inhabit the white house.
5. myth r-money can’t manage a campaign team, and he certainly can’t be expected to do a better job of managing the u.s. bureaucracy.
PBO’s radio interview at http://kysdc.com:
I missed EVERYTHING today! Went down to OFA for 9am GOTV meeting that lasted till around 1pm…had some lunch, and stayed till 4pm learning how to do data entry. FIRED UP!! READY TO GO!! What did I miss, other than Mitt thinks the USA is a foreign country? HAHAHA
1. We found out that Romney manipulated the Univision town hall forum by stacking the audience with bused-in supporters, throwing tantrums and making threats to cancel his appearance if he didn’t get his way, bullying the hosts, ignoring forum rules, etc.
2. PBO had an out-of-this world fired up rally in Milwaukee, WI with 18K + overflow crowd
3. FLOTUS gave another tremendously inspiring and moving speech as only she could do at the CBC dinner this evening.
4. We found out that Anderson Cooper & friends at TeaNN, in their rush to make a story out of the events in libya to help Romney, got their hands on the slain ambassador’s diary and reported on stuff that was supposedly in it. They broke their pledge to not report on Ambassador stevens diary. Now they are in trouble with the State Dep’t.
Thank you, hf!! I just posted a link about the Univision event…what an idiot (but we knew that)
18,000!!!!! PLUS overflow? WOW! I love my President:)
I love my FLOTUS….she IS a secret weapon, and adored by all…..
TeaNN…barf. I hope the State Dept comes down HARD on them! So much for journalistic integrity! But we knew THAT, too.
Wow! Yesterday, all there was to report was nakedness…. HF, guess I know now where to get the scoop! :lol:
What a difference a day makes! One day it’s naked nudies…the next day, it’s MItt Tantrums, 18,000 supporters, and a promise broken.
Crazy! Keep a laser focus and your eyes on the prize…..
What a lying POS

Thank you, Bob. I detest this liar.
I don’t see how anyone can believe him. He has the expression of a smartass entitled jerk. As Charles Pierce at Esquire calls him, the “zombie-eyed granny killer.” Romney is similarly off putting with his smirk and fake laugh.
Df, Ryan is Sarah Palin redux without the short skirts and high heels. He is such an absolute loser.
How on earth can supporters of the President’s administration not be waging a boycott on CNN is beyond me. They are beyond disgusting!!!
Donna. I am absolutely with you! In my humble opinion, CNN is worse than FOX because it is generally viewed as a non-partisan news channel when, in reality, it is actively involved in promoting right wing Propaganda all the time. The teabag movement would be no where if it weren’t for CNN joining FOX in pushing it.
We were right!! http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/09/22/romney-campaign-demanded-rules-change-to-stack-univision-forum-with-supporters/

I’ve been phonebanking for awhile, but decided to sign up to be a Volunteer Coordinator to help OFA CA gear up for the humungo GOTV effort in the remaining weeks of our illustrious Prez’s campaign. They played the Story of Fired Up Ready to Go clip and I was like perfect time to play this! So many people there hadn’t seen it! One of the people I was sitting next to wanted to know how I already knew about the video which of course gave me the perfect opportunity to tell them to check out TOD if they really want to know what’s going on with PBO in real time. 45 days to go y’all. LET’S GET IT DONE! #PRESSON!
