        Must confess, I was trying to Hold the door for YOU, VC. I might have gotten my toe in between the crack door some how. I am a newbie…loving the JOY that you bring to opening the TODville door for all to come in and soak in the Love.

        You are one heck of a Lady.

          Why, thank you, Nena. I didn’t step on your toe, did I? Apologies if I did. I do try to remember to move only with ladylike swiftness, but the memory is not as it used to be, and it seems to fade completely when I see a door opening. ;) Not to worry, Obama lovers are never newbies for long in this village, and as a caution, if you try to hold doors you might inadvertently get trampled. Just make your own way in quickly when you see an open door. Just saying, ’cause I don’t know if the part of the ACA dealing with trampling in TODville has kicked in yet!

                Now if we can get Chips to show Us 3 co-firsts some love……that would be the Icing on the cake. Should we protest and loudly?

                  Nah, Chips is usually super busy on the weekends, so I cut her some slack out of deep appreciation for the way she decorates TODville pictorally despite that. Me, I tend to get great satisfaction from needling her during the times when she has a wee bit more time to hang around and ‘shake hands’ along the TODville rope line. You’ll notice that she gives as good (or better) as she gets. What can I say – I have a weird sense of humour!

        Dotster, are PBO and Mitt both on stage at the same time being questioned by the same person, or are they being interviewed one after the other?

        • September 23, 2012 at 9:05 pm

          Scott Pelley is interviewing Romney and Steve Kroft is interviewing President Obama. They were interviewed separately in the last few weeks.

          September 23, 2012 at 9:06 pm

          Scott Pelley interviewed Romney first and Steve Kroft interviewed Obama. Then a little switchback to Romney and then a final few minutes with Obama. I couldn’t watch Romney, only caught a nano-second of his smirk when I would switch over to see if Obama was on yet. But I’ve noticed on twitter some of the ridiculous things he said. President Obama faced tough questions and answered in his calm, thoughtful, smart manner, impressive as always. I think he’s beyond brilliant.

            TY, Dotster, and Jackie. It’s funny, but I normally prefer to see PBO live before any comments, yet I hate seeing Mitt ‘live’ because he usually seems so patheticand off-topic that I cringe in sympathy. Also when he’s campaigning I get a bit angry seeing the idiots standing and cheering when he hasn’t said anything worthy of cheers. Anyway, thank you both. I’ll hunt for them at CBS online, maybe tomorrow.

            The only reason they had them both on at the same time was to avoid killing their ratings by doing just a MITTNOCCHIO interview. People would definitely tune into to see PBO. Most peeps probably TiVo paused and then fast forwarded thru all the MITTNOCCHIO segments.

      The graduated tax rate is considered fair in that those who can afford more pay more as it comes from their money above what it takes to live on. Many want the flat tax or paying the same percentage regardless of how much money they make. The poor and middle class are unfairly hit with the flat tax as it takes from the money they need for basics while the rich can easily pay their basics plus a lot more. It is kind of like their tax is like pennies to them. They don’t even miss the money. Whereas the poor have to miss out on a meal or the ability to fill their gas tank to drive to work in paying even a percentage more. There is a bible verse about a woman contributing a few coins into the collection while the wealthy make fun of her. That verse always impressed me.

      ‘that ends at the debates’?

      how is it that he thinks it’s okay to unveil the specifics of his plans AT the debates? the whole point of a debate is to discuss and confront the opposing specifics. you unveil your plans in an announcement. you defend them in a debate.

      i have no doubt that pbo is giving him plenty of rope to tie himself in knots with, but it still rankles me that the man is getting away with these antics. it’s a terrible precedent for politics in this county.

    September 23, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    I think Steve Croft is doing way better than he’s don in the past interviewing PBO. He framed the questions this time pointing out MItt’s and the Repubs failures. For example, ‘ They said they will make you a one-term president, do you take any responsibility for that’. Well, to the average listener, that’s a ‘well, d’uh’. He also drew the contrast between PBO and Mitt by name and not his usual, ‘but you promised’ stuff, or the ‘what’s so funny’ from the past. Overall, and I admit a bias, I think this showed Mitt in the worse light possible and PBO much better. We knew the interview wasn’t going to be about what’s growing in the WH garden. PBO is a big boy and he handles himself well, imo.

    This tells me the debates will be a not so great for the other guy.

Fer gosh sakes, PBO is the leader of the free world, give him a little credit for being able to get through an interview. By comparison to his responsibility and all that he does, this is no more than a Sunday evening chat.

        September 23, 2012 at 9:04 pm

        Lisa, I hear what you’re saying but I have to believe POTUS respects Scott Pelley for asking the tough questions. He knows what the questions are going to be in general well in advance (for example unemployment rate, tone in Washington, etc.) If POTUS wanted a softball interview he would go on “The View” or “Jay Leno”. And I don’t think he respects the cable shows. Every president gets grilled like this on 60 Minutes and that’s why it has a reputation for trustworthy and informative.

          September 23, 2012 at 9:09 pm

          IPelley is with Willard, Croft is with PBO. Not listening to answers and accusing PBO of swelling the national debt by 60% in 4 years, to which PBO said: ah……No. Then he had to set him straight about Bush’s debt and the wars and prescription drug plan and tax cuts that were run up on the credit card. That was a hack move on Croft’s part. Same with accusing PBO of having some part in the acrimony in Washington. PBO had to remind Croft of McTurtle’s not so secret goal of making PBO a one term president.

            Lisa ..

            i agree that he was tough on PBO… he asked the question about the tone of Washington …something that PBO ran on and tried to change/but there has never been a Congress like this GOP Congress …they obstructed everything…even bills that Repubs helped to write…They are truly the Party of NO…for alot of Americans they do not know how Congress works ..they think that the Presidency is like a KING…

            they may buy into the notion that PBO somehow was not a good leader and that is why he could not persuade the GOP to cooperate…

            i think the clue to this answer is notion that it takes an organized electorate to push Congress to act…i hope that PBO and company…talk more about this….

            I agree with you. Croft framed his questions like “do you still beat your wife”? I think he was disrespectful. I don’t expect softball questions. I do expect respectful questions. For instance, Croft could have put the question re the debt….”the debt is $$$. Please explain how and why the debt is this amount”? Instead Croft framed the question as though President Obama is responsible for the entire debt instead of the actual 10%.

          Scott Pelley was not the one asking the President questions. It was Steve Croft, who in my humble opinion, regurgitated GOP talking points instead of asking intelligent and factually based questions. I also reject the notion that asking questions that are not fact based is the same asking tough questions and not “softball” questions. Just my two cents.

          I agree! But I thought at times Croft was disrespectful and seemed to be repeating GOP talking points. Obviously the President handled himself well; but still, asking questions based on false premises reinforces the validity of those false premises in the minds of uninformed viewers. This is what’s wrong with the current state of U.S. journalism. Instead of separating Truth and falsehood, many media people treat TRUTH and FALSEHOOD equally.

            I think it was a decent interview. By asking those GOP talking point questions, Croft allowed PBO to respond to those charges. It was not a soft ball interview, but it was not unfair. Croft did not interrupt PBO when he was responding to his questions (that is the main problem I have had with others who interviewed PBO). PBO got to respond in full to the GOP talking points that voters are bombarded with everyday. They guy who interviewed Mitt also did a decent job, in my opinion. Though not perfect by any means, I think that 60 Minutes is probably still the most widely respected news show there is. That is why PBO often uses it to get his message out, and why PBO chooses Croft to be his interviewer.

              Whether the interview was decent or not was not my point! My point is reputable journalists should not ask question based on false factual information; unless they clearly state that they are trying to play the devil’s advocate. With all due respect, I really don’t care how “60 minutes is probably still the most widely respected news show there is.” What I care about is people who claim to be respectable journalists asking questions premised on the TRUTH and not on the GOP/teabag falsehoods. For example: reputable sources exist that clearly shows that the debt under President Obama has not grown the slowest compared to four of his predecessors (Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, and Bush, Jr.) So, why ask a question that says that the debit has grown 60% under President Obama? The fact that a reputable journalists asks such a question without qualification, or explanation, implies that the question is based on fact.

                By “decent” I meant it was a fair interview. You obviously disagree with my view, and that is your right. You seem fixated on one question (that PBO was able to answer and refute). This false info is out there and by asking the question, Croft gave PBO the opportunity to respond to the charge, which PBO did beautifully. All in all the interviews of PBO and Mitt were fair and gave both candidates the opportunity to answer questions many voters have about them. While you don’t care about 60 Minutes’ stature, it is obvious that PBO disagrees with you (as evidenced by his using the show to get his message out directly to the American people on numerous occasions). In addition, since PBO has chosen to give Croft access for these lengthy one on one interviews, he seems to trust him to be a fair interviewer, which I think he has been. Not perfect, but fair.

                  Obviously you respect Croft and you are willing to give him a pass. I really don’t want to belabor this, but my concern is that if we allow false information and false premises to go unchallenged it becomes that much more difficult to deal with the truth. You accused me of being “fixated on one question.” You are absolutely right. But this one question happens to be the very central reason for the GOP opposition to President Obama. Romney has repeated it over and over again. And so have many right wing Republicans I run into all the time. It’s also the attack that seems to resonate with so many so called independents. Again, my bottom line is that a reputable journalist has an obligation not to ask any question based on falsehoods. But if you are comfortable with what Croft did then there is nothing I can say that will change your opinion. Please don’t get me wrong, I am not looking for perfection. I am only interested in journalistic integrity.

                    False information and false premises DID NOT go unchallenged. PBO was given the opportunity to respond to that false info and he did so beautifully (pointing to the 2 wars, prescription drug benefit and tax cuts that were not paid for by GWB). That is all I am saying. As for Croft, I don’t know him well enough to give him respect or a pass (I’m going by the fact that PBO chooses to give him access, which he does not have to). I watched the interview and did not have the viseral anger you had watching it. Looking at the show as a whole, both Mitt and PBO were treated fairly.

                      I never said that President Obama did not challenge false facts and false premises. I also resent your characterization of the questions I raised as being based on my “viseral (sp) anger” I had “watching it.” Like you, I don’t know Mr. Croft personally. I was not angry at him; rather I was disappointed that he acted exactly the same way as his fellow mainstream journalists. All I was trying to point out is that Mr. Craft asked questions based on GOP talking points but pretended that they were factually based questions. And because he is supposedly a reputable journalists, chances are that uninformed people are likely to believe him than they are to believe the President who will be presumed to be giving political answers that make him look good. Other than the President, who else challenged Croft’s false information and false premises? It seems to me that as far as you are concerned, it was o.k. for Croft to use Republican/teabag talking points to frame his questions, without clear attribution, so long as you felt that “both Mitt and PBO were treated fairly.” In that case all I can do is respectfully disagree with you and move-on. In the end, It really doesn’t really matter about our take on the 60 minutes interviews, so longer as we both stay committed to supporting the President’s re-election. At least we do agree on one thing: President Obama handled himself admirably and answered all questions including questions based on false facts and false premises.

        Romney has or exhibits another characteristic that Palin did during the campaign (not so much now as she virtually snarls on FOX when she talks about our President) and that is an almost constant smile or smirk on his face. It is almost like if I smile at you and I look cute you will believe anything I say. Even the Vogue article on Palin months before she was selected as VP candidate, referred to her almost constant smile (Vogue, February issue 2008). It is not real, it is freaky and narcissistic.

      It’s highlighting his hypocrisy regarding coal mining. You are correct that what he says at the end is true. The hypocrisy is his recent appearance at a coal mine, where workers were forced to attend and lost pay that day, to serve as a prop for #BainMitt bashing #PBO’s policies toward coal and the fact that, way beyond those policies, the big impact on US coal production is ‘the market’ for real – natural gas is just way less expensive in any current total cost model for the two resources.

    Scott Pelley: Well– as you know, a lot of people were concerned about the video of the fundraiser in which you talked about the 47 percent of the American people who don’t pay taxes. Peggy Noonan, a very well-known conservative columnist, said that it was an example of this campaign being incompetent. And I wonder if any of that criticism gets through to you and whether you’re concerned about it at all, whether–

    Mitt Romney: Well, that’s not–

I understand that you had to BORROW 11 million. Are you going to put any of your own money in? That will help with some of the 47% which I am sure in part were some who you shafted when you ran Bain capital. This also may help some of the former Massachussetts subjects that you ripped off while your were their illustrious governor. Also when you concede on November 6, 2012 for once in your pitiful life admit that you have shafted or help to shaft many a soul out of their hard earned dollars. If you will not admit this then just quietly go away before so much condemning evidence comes out against you that neither you, your disheveled wife nor your sons will be able to show face and someone indicts you.

My problem is with journalists who ask questions based on false premises as if they were legitimate questions. Like you said asking the President premised on “PBO increasing the national debt by 60%….” is not a legitimate question. Steve Kroft, as a reputable journalist has an obligation to research the validity of GOP and teabag claims before repeating them as if they were legitimate facts.

But, asking President Obama, based on the false allegation, that he increased the national debt by 60% is an illegitimate question. No matter how well President Obama answers such illegitimate question, the fact that a reputable journalist asked it gives the false allegation the imprimatur of legitimacy in the minds of many Americans.

It invested in a derivative that would profit if the dollar fell against a group of foreign currencies.” [and] “The Romney family trusts invested around the world. It also owned shares in Credit Suisse, the Swiss bank; FLSmidth, a Danish machinery company; Arcelormittal, a steel company based in Luxembourg with operations around the world, and Komatsu, a Japanese machinery company.

    I watched the 60 minutes interview with both Romney and Pres. Obama and I have to say, Scott Pelley did a really good job of making Romney own his BS and calling him out on his nonsense. He was fairly tough. Romney was uncomfortable, came off as whiny, didn’t give any specifics and overall, he came off really bad in the interview. He basically confirmed that he and Ryan’s healthcare program is voucher care, that they will give seniors a cheque and send them off to buy healthcare in the private market. He said that it’s right for him to pay 14% because job creators like him should be rewarded for the investments they make in this country and when he becomes president (LMAO) he’ll keep it that way. At certain times in the interview, Romney was pretty much one second away from yelling STOP IT! THIS IS HARD! Just like Ann.

    Steve Kroft did a good job. He was tough, came with some GOP talking points but overall, he was fair. I think that’s why Pres. Obama likes to sit down with him. Pres. Obama was great. He was able to outline his vision for a second term, outline what this election is about, outline his successes and the mess that the GOP has thrown against him. He wasn’t whiny. He took responsibility for his policies, etc.

      df, when it comes to his Mormon stuff, I leave it to others. I have to shower my brain several times a day as it is because of the wretchedness of Prince and Princess Romney that I just can’t get dirty my brain more with their Mormon scam.

    The West Coasters just got through watching the 60 Minutes on President Obama and Candidate Romney. I must say that I am with most everyone that Steve Croft used all GOP talking points and President Obama swatted them away very well…he did a great job. I will have to watch the Robme portion because he is so hard to stomach I tuned out while I was blogging here.

      Jojothecat, It’s the fact that a supposedly reputable journalists used “all GOP talking points” as though they were objective facts that disturbed me greatly! President Obama, as always did a great job, despite the false premises of Kraft’s questions. My problem is that Kraft’s questions, based on false premises, are being accepted as legitimate tough questions. One question that I particularly resented was Kroft’s claim that President Obama increased the debt by 60%. That is plainly false. Journalist Steve Croft must not be allowed to get away free without consequences when he asks questions that are based on false premises or erroneous facts!

      Yep, the good ol’ ER! I was last in there the day before PBO Inauguration, kidney stone. The bill came to $7,000.00, for 7 hours. It takes me a very long time to earn $7000.00. Maybe next time I can send the bill to Myth?

    Well, my sinuses give me every indication that I’m going to be knocked out with a cold this week. I’ll be pleasantly surprised if I wake up okay tomorrow. But, at any rate, here’s tonight’s menu:

    Marinated flank steak, broiled on high, 7 minutes a side to make it a perfect medium with a wonderful charred crust
    Baked potato, smothered in butter, with garlic salt and cracked black pepper
    Side salad
    All washed down with a very good Spanish tempranillo

    I again reminded wifey how lucky she is.

      Our remedy is to take 3-4,000 milligrams of vitamin C in the morning & at night. This works for us, but only if we do it as soon as we feel a cold coming on. My colds always start with a scratchy throat. Once the cold has set in C does not help.

      • September 23, 2012 at 11:57 pm

        That’s what I should’ve done last night and this morning. Right now my sinuses are squeezing my head, so I think it may be a tad too late.

          My sister has a concoction that we all swear by: a pinch of cayenne pepper, teaspoon of manuka honey, splash of lemon, tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. If you can stand a little garlic in there, too, even better. A quick shot of that concoction will sort you out very quickly – even if only because you don’t want to have to take any more of the mixture! Feel better.

        September 24, 2012 at 7:24 am

        Forgot to say I hope you feel better!

        those of us with either no insurance or junk insurance who own a small bungalow — no ER is free unless we want to lose our home. Wages are garnished. YOU ARE BILLED at that full rate and that bill haunts you. We don’t want ‘free’ care, we want affordable care and access to that care. We want to pay a reasonable amount for health care. It’s outrageous.

        My friend with insurance got an MRI for her sinus headaches yet there are people who can’t afford to see a doctor. How is ‘freedom’ to get as much out of the system as possible while making health care impossible for those without insurance reasonable? Why is ‘freedom’ more important than ‘fairness’?

    Game Change won the Emmy for Outstanding Mini-Series which was well deserved IMO. Julianne Moore won for Best Lead Actress in her role of Sarah Palin. Julianne accepted the award saying: “I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down”.

    In your face Ms. Palin :)

    From what I am hearing on this blog and reading in HuffPost, Romney provided some stupid comments e.g.1) the 47% comment is him and not his campaign. Does he realise that it is he running for the presidency? 2) the emergency room = Universal health care. Why did he do Romneycare then? 3) It is fair for his tax rate and the tax rate of someone working for $50,000 to be the same and 4) POTUS challenged him to say whether he wants another war. I have not seen any adverse comments based on what POTUS’s interview.

      Yup, I had the same Romneycare question. If the ER is good enough, then why did he do Romneycare? He’s a fool.

      I am hearing that Repubs are complaining that PBO was insensitive to the 4 killed in the recent embassy takeover with his comments Sunday of always expecting a bump in the road. The GOP inferred PBO thinks killing 4 people is an insignificant bump in the road.

    Paul Abrams of HuffPost is asking everyone to write to returns@mittromney.com to enquire whether Romney got amnesty. He believes that if the campaign gets many letters they will be forced to answer the question. If he says no, then he can be asked to allow the IRS Commissioner to verify that this is true.

      September 24, 2012 at 7:17 am

      The questions were as if they were written by Repubs and the Romney campaign, but PBO’s answers were excellent.

      My husband commented on how there was actually a ton of great information from PBO. He’s starting to believe an idea that I saw posted here yesterday: LET them ask the awful questions. The frame is frankly what the ‘undecideds’ is hearing so it’s okay if he answers as well as he does.

      We get protective. We get upset because every other President has been fawned over and coddled by the press and it pisses us off. Sure I would like to have the press acknowledge, to PBO’s face, all that he has accomplished and all of the obstruction that has hurt the country in order to try to defeat him. But I’m ready to make some lemonade here — our President’s answers are excellent.

      so one of his supporters says, mitt, i’m a union guy and we support you here, but we need some facts, some specifics about your plans for medicare and so on. and then myth, the puke, tells the guy how to purchase his book, which enumerates his ideas. unbelievable! here’s a supporter who’s taken the trouble to engage with him directly, and myth refuses to talk to him, and basically says you have to pay for that information.

      how can it be possible that he still has even one supporter?

    How great God is. these comments were taped before the secret tape of his real self was revealed..

The key to Willard’s campaign is that if we are talking about him and his fuck ups then his bamboozle message can’t break through. Well his secret tape, bamboozled tax returns, and his fucked up interview on 60 minutes will be the talk on Monday.

    sorry, myth–when the sweet grannies don’t like you, it’s over.

    ‘ Even before his running mate was booed by a lobbying group for older Americans on Friday, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was losing support among such voters, whose backing is crucial to his hopes of winning the November 6 election.

    New polling by Reuters/Ipsos indicates that during the past two weeks – since just after the Democratic National Convention – support for Romney among Americans age 60 and older has crumbled, from a 20-point lead over Democratic President Barack Obama to less than 4 points. ‘
