The View, Sept 24
They make love look so ‘easy’! :lol: Congrats, PFI!
FIRST COUPLE! :lol:
Makes you wonder if it’s part GOP strategy to send as many of the 99% into battle as possible.
I have not watch the View in months, but I am eagerly waiting for tomorrow to see POTUS and FLOTUS.
The only time I watch that show is when the President or First Lady is on there. Never any other time.
Great photos, as always, Chips.

@finneyk Mitt waging class war, claiming the ER is healthcare & wondering why planes don't have windows hasn't distracted us >> #TAXRETURNS— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 24, 2012
Thanks for the pictures as always Chips. Everyone looks great in that picture. Yes, even Mrs. Hasselbeck. Michelle puts them all to shame though.
As always! Love how Joy has her hand hooked through FLOTUS’ arm, I would do that too, if I could!
Joy is like everyone who meets MO; she wants to hold on and bask in Michelle’s warmth.
I just adore our First Couple ( sighs with longing).
Ha ha! Yep, I just went back and noticed that. So cute!
All those in favor of 4 more years for that amazing couple, say i
I say Aye!
Yeah, Yeah, yeah, yeah.
It must be Love, yes, it must be Love. Aye!
Aye! Aye! Aye! Aye!
Just took my meds, but I know that I know that I know that I am in my right mind: So Aye, Aye, Aye Aye!!!!!
Miss you all here in my TOD family, but I love you so very much.(((((((( Thank you, Chips))))))))))))))HZ
As @kgvm noted, to know #BainMitt is definitely not to love him ….
@MitchellReports @Lis_Smith Bottom Line: the people who elected & suffered #BainMitt's Governorship of MA prefer #PresObama by 22+ points.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 24, 2012
… and he’s behind in all the polls for states in which he and LeonaAnn_toinette have homes ;)
Bobfr, been missing my RTs, but know that I appreciate all that you do for all of us. ((((Thank U))))))HZ
I will be setting my DVR for sure!
They are gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!
Just breathtaking, really. Sigh.
Much better picture of POTUS and FLOTUS on The View. They are both photogenically stunning! http://t.co/P8COQA7N— (@utaustinliberal) September 24, 2012
Pres. Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hold hands while taping an episode of The View. http://t.co/n5cX9BkY— (@utaustinliberal) September 24, 2012
Love the pictures of the first couple on the View. Thanks Chipsticks
Joy looks like she’s holding on to FLOTUS for dear life!!
meta, I was thinking the same thing, I think Joy feels about FLOTUS like we do. That right winger sitting there don’t look so happy, do she? Well who gives a blank.
You see POTUS and FLOTUS holding hands.
Yeah, Missy looks like she really doesn’t want to be there…but “who gives a blanks”. :-)
Joy looooooooooves POTUS and FLOTUS and regularly defends them on the show.
Sorry to pester, but does anyone have more info about PBO’s Bowling Green visit or can they direct me somewhere? I am hoping my daughter gets a chance to see him.
I wonder if you could contact the local OFA office for information? I would think they’d know, and may even be able to help with ticket suggestions.
Good idea! Thanks!
Joy Behar is like a member of the Obama family. President Obama said he just loves her. She and Michelle are clearly close. Wouldnt be suprised if they asked her to babysit the girls on occasion.
Hiya Linda, our friend has left us – not because of that comment, but I did a check on past comments and …. good grief….. I’m very slow :oops:
Amazing how in love they are after 20 years of marriage. They act like teenagers : )
collegekay, it is amazing…I have a client and she and her husband have been married almost 35 years and act just like the First Couple! I can see the First Couple will be this way forever, especially in their senior years (without the stresses of raising children, running a country…). What POTUS and FLOTUS!!!!
We’ve been married 41 years on Oct. 2. We’re not that beautiful though, but October is a great month.
Sorry Carol, but you’re not showing up as ever having posted here before. If you did, could you sign in with your original account? Otherwise you’ll stay stuck in pending! Thanks.
I don’t know what I’m doing!!! I thought I was signed in, but I don’t know where to go from here, help?
Look at Joy hanging on to FLOTUS. They are practically joined at the hip. Too cute.
Gorgeous..Gorgeous photosssss…i love …love ….The President and the First Lady!!!!
Whoopie Goldberg is rocking some fierce shoes.
I’m not so sure about those shoes…
I’m not so sure about those shoes either…I can’t figure them out…besides they look way to high.
So, I’ve never been on a plane in my life. Can someone tell me what happens if the windows open up in the air.
the pressure.. I get it.
Yes. The whole vacuum suction thing happens and pooooof.
Wow I can’t believe Romney said that.
I don’t believe he’s serious. Willard is 65 years old and has extensive experience with air travel. I get the feeling that he’s trying to get people talking about anything other than his tax returns. I hope Lawrence doubles down on the tax issue tonight!
I agree. I think it just his weird sense of humor. “The trees are just the right height.” Scary.
Maybe it’s he’s weird sense of humor but HE really needs to say he’s kidding to whomever he’s talking to. These comments make him look stupid.
Actually, that doesn’t happen but if a window blows out the cabin is no longer pressurized and you have very little oxygen (that’s why they have those little masks that drop down “in case of a loss of pressure.” It also gets FEARSOMELY COLD. At, let’s say 30,000 feet you’d freeze to death rapidly even if you had an oxygen mask.
(I saw them test the sucked-out-of-the-window story on Mythbusters — so it must be true! ;-)
In fact, ck, you don’t even have to ‘open a window’ or any ‘hole’ in the fuselage. If you lose pressure at typical commercial or private jet altitudes you quickly asphyxiate due to hypoxia & if that didn’t kill you because you are able to use supplemental oxygen, you’d likely freeze to death if you didn’t land quickly. Even if #BainMitt tries to spin it as a joke, there’s absolutely nothing funny about it. It’s a horrible way to die as was seared into many people’s memory because of the Learjet crash of golf star Payne Stewart and his crew:
There was an Airliner many years ago that was flying to or from HI and the top was blown off. That pilot Miraculously was able to land that air plane. Unfortunately a number of people were sucked off the air plane and their bodies were Never Found.
Yep that was in 1988 and the airline was Aloha Airlines from Hilo to Honolulu. Only one person, a flight attendent was sucked out the plane according to wiki. I thought there were more. I remember people hanging onto one another to make sure no one else or seats got sucked out. That pilot was another Hero that landed that damaged plane safely.
I posted before I saw your reply. I remember the Payne Stewart crash — and here’s how memory can be so unreliable. I remembered that he was the pilot and that he crashed into the ocean. Other than that ;-) my memory was completely accurate.
I am going to look it up. I will be back with something.
It was an Aloha Airlines on April 28, 1988. The flight was at 24,000 feet. It tore a huge hole on top of the air plane. One fatality, a flight attendant. 65 people were injured of the 90 passenger.
Southwest jet on April 4, 2011. No one was blown off. At 34,000 feet. Section of the fuselage was ripped off.
I remember that story. Just horrific! It was a long time before the plane ran out of fuel too.
Not sure…but in the movies you get sucked out the window….
Let me put it this way….fresh air will be the least important thing on your mind, or should I say the last important thing.
hahahahaha…..yall tooo funny… :lol:
that settles it, collegekay! time for your trip to hawaii! :)
I’m only going to say this once and then I won’t be catty anymore I promise. But. Everytime I see Paul Ryan in one of these little You Tube videos I go “Oh look! It’s Eddie Munster grown up!”
Just walk on by folks – nothing to see here…… ;-)
you are not alone–only difference is, eddie is cute.
Just walk on by folks – nothing to see here……
I love that…hehehehe
Rev Al Sharpton play this tape on his show today. He also played a 2007 video of Romney explaining why ER was NOT the way to get Affordable Health Care.
My favorite pictures are the ones with them alone together….
Those View woman kinda make me sick…. I know…I know ….the show is popular…
none of these ads say that emergency room care is not free! the fundamental lie coming out of myth’s mouth is when he says we already provide free care–like when we send an ambulance and take you to the hospital and take care of you, and different states deal with it different ways. yeah, myth, but they all send you a bill!!! he cannot really believe that is free care, but he says it like it’s a well-known fact.
WE pick THEM up, those people who live in apartments……..
Never US, unless he’s talking to the 1%.
In addition to showing off our glorious and beautiful first couple, there’s a lot going on in those photos. Barack and Michelle are lovingly holding hands, Joy is determinedly locking arms with Michelle, Barbara looks a little spacey trying to get the president’s undivided attention. Whoopi managed to get in some tidbit of conversation with Michelle. Sheri just keeps smiling at the camera off to her left, looks removed from anything going on. And Elizabeth is perched perkily at the end of the couch, trying to look cute but she cannot hide the ugliness within— and looks real disappointed with the loveliness of today’s guests.
Sheri thought the world was flat up until a few years ago, and I’m not sure she was completely convinced otherwise… I totally agree with your assessment of Hasselbeck.
The level of discourse would be raised 10-fold with the Obamas on set. Or 100 fold.
Oh absolutely – they’re not even on the same plane.
I don’t regularly watch this show. I try to watch when FLOTUS or POTUS are on. That being said, I would probably have acted much the same as Sheri–just sitting and smiling dumbfounded.
But, at least we know your smiling and dumbfounded act was because you were sitting in front of the President and First Lady, and not because of a vacuous nature… :)
The attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the American ambassador to the country earlier this month “wasn’t just a mob action,” President Barack Obama said Monday.
During an appearance on the daytime TV show “The View,” Obama was asked if the attack was an act of terrorism. Administration officials began labeling it that way last week, but Obama didn’t use precisely that language.
“There’s no doubt that the kind of weapons that were used, the ongoing assault, that it wasn’t just a mob action. What’s clear is that, around the world, there are still a lot of threats out there,” Obama said, according to a pool report.
Initially, the Obama administration claimed the attack grew out of a protest underway at the consulate in response to an anti-Muslim video posted on the Internet. However, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said Sunday he had “no information” that a protest was underway at that consulate at the time of the attack.
After National Counterterrorism Center Director Matt Olsen labeled the incident as an act of terrorism last Wednesday during a Congressional hearing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney picked up that line on Thursday, calling it “self-evident” that the attack was terrorism.
Republicans have jumped on the confusion to suggest that the administration deliberately understated the significance of the incident, which occurred on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
Despite indications that many in the Muslim world want government action taken against the anti-Muslim video that provoked recent violence, during his appearance on the “The View,” Obama stressed values shared by Muslim populations abroad and by Americans.
“The overwhelming majority of Muslims, they want the same things that families here want. They want opportunity, kids want an education, they want jobs, they want peace. But there are extremist strains that are there,” Obama said.
The president also insisted that the anti-Muslim video, which he has denounced, was not a justification for violence.
“There’s never an excuse for violence,” he said. “The best way to marginalize that kind of speech…is to ignore it. You don’t make yourself bigger by putting other people down.”
I’m glad to see Elizabeth Hasselbeck wore a decent length dress this time. (Catty, but true).
But she sticks out like a sore thumb!
OMG – does this guy say anything with a SHRED of credibility or intelligence?? First he names Russia as our #1 enemy. Now I think if you poll 20 kids in 6th grade they would say Iran or Iraq or Afghanistan – not that that would be correct necessarily but it would be a better guess than the GOP nominee from Harvard who has been doing nothing but running for president for 6 years. But read this:
Romney Invests In “Number One Geopolitical Foe” Russia
Mitt Romney acquired and sold shares last year in the politically powerful Russian gas giant Gazprom. Ann and Mitt Romney’s family trust return, released Friday, shows Romney sold his Gazprom stock at a loss last September in advance of election season.
He’s a spineless, coreless, gutless opportunist.
so true–our real ‘number one geopolitical foe’ is him and his billionaire cronies.
Hey guys hope all is well in your respective parts of the world! I just got done perusing the last entry that Chips did. I sincerely hope that Mittens keeps yakking about the first thing that comes into his pea sized brain I think I might send him another tweet of thanks just for helping out President Obama. Really. What were the Republicans thinking? Not that I should be complacent or anything but…..did they really think Mitt was a good idea?
Congrats Lisa! I saw you passed your oral exams!
I am about to leave and go to a big GOTV training keep up the good work everyone and I’ll do my part here in MN too!
thanks so much, a4alice! I appreciate it! Good luck with GOTV!!!!
Congrats Lisa, such wonderful news! Enjoy your celebration, you deserve it!
So, the new attack from the Republican Website Politico is, Veterans ate Retreating from Obama.
That is News to me. But, what is happening is John McCain has gone a DOD tour, slaing the President for the Sequestration.
I phone is terrible!
Just imagine if President Obama had behaved the way McCain has behaved had the shoe been on the other foot. He’s such a sore loser. He’s made it very clear that he could care less about the country. I despise that man.
So do I theo67. We are rid of him after this term.
oh please…..I don’t believe that ….he must be going to AmVets.
I don’t believe that either. How can the military vote for someone who never mentioned Afghanistan in hs RNC speech, and considers them a “distraction”?
McCain fears death….but he will die a small broken shell of a man…
They’re obsessed with the President. Chips will need to resume her GOPolitico headline series soon. :)
There isn’t a President or First Lady who have supported our veterans, our military like POTUS and FLOTUS have. So I ain’t buying Politico B.S.
I watched Roland Martin’s Sunday Morning show yesterday and he said that the recent AP article about the A/A Clergys are thrown between voting for the candidate who is for same sex marriage and the one who doesn’t care about the 47%, is a LIE. He said when he contacted them to get the source of their info/to name names, they said they didn’t have any facts, but they weren’t going to write a correction! THESE PEOPLE LIE FOR THE GOP!!
Ah yes, I remember the last time they tried that:

The Most Damning Line in the Secret Romney Video
By David Corn
Yet one sentence did stand out to me. When Romney was in mid-rant about the 47 percent—simplistically and erroneously conflating three subsets of Americans: those who voted for Barack Obama, those who receive some form of government assistance, and those who pay no federal income taxes—he said:
I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
Here was Romney sharing his view that Americans who don’t make enough money to pay income taxes and his fellow citizens who rely on Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, or other government programs are lesser people than he and the millionaires before him.
excellent point. myth has also been trying to slide out of this mess by saying he was only talking about appealing to them as potential supporters and voters–they’re being supported by gov’t so they’ll vote for the guy who gives them stuff.
but this line, about personal responsibility, clearly means he doesn’t think they’ll ever be decent human beings, not just that they won’t vote for him.
now he’s really unzipped.
Swoon. The man is fine.
Oh my. That smile gets me every time!
WOWWA…Ooh.oooh…Oh Chips, I see you are just itching to use those naughty mats, especially now that Yardarm is back and can easily replenish with new shipments!!
Oh. My. God.
*goes to the naughty mat in my naughty corner in my naughty house*
PJ, I know what you mean. My nurse heard me yelling and into my room she came running. I only said,”Oh, our POTUS is fineeeeeeeeeeeeee.” She put me on warning with the computer. I only have about 20 minutes more, so I do not need a TOD Naughty Mat and a Nurse Time Out. I need time for tomorrow.
But I will be cool because I need to get up from this setback to help our fine POTUS and VP Biden win this.
Keep me in your thoughts. I will make it. I have been through tougher times than these. Just a little set back.
Please take care, all of you in my TOD Family. Shouts and (((((((((((Loving Hugs to All )))))))))) Remember life is very short, and very precious. I was up yesterday and this morning front and center in cardiologist’s face. So treat your spirits with beauty, family with loving calls, neighbors with compassion, and the little ones around us , show them how to take good care of this world that seems to want to thrive on mean spiritness rather than love and compassion.
Get some rest those of you who need it, and let us get our best done to bring this on over to the finish line. Remember me in the TOD FR pages here. I worry that I will not meet my last goal, but I will trust and not worry.
Chips, you are our love, our gentle and firm spirit of brilliantness, and a strong passion for what you do. I love you my dear one.(((((((((( Get some rest as well))))))))))HZ
Sorry, Rev. Al, but I had to mute the segment with Abby Huntsman. About 10 seconds of her was all I could take, especially the part about national defense being a “pillar” of the GOP. I yelled “Oh, shut up!” at the TV and hit mute. I refuse to listen to that Republican propaganda bullshit anymore.
I’m with you ! And, it really pisses me off they even get air time to lie….
I forced myself to listen to her this time. She actually slammed Robney for not having a plan and not giving any specifics. She also criticized him for lack of emotion. :)
She’s not a Romney fan. From all indications, those 2 wealthy Mormon families are the Hatfields and McCoys of Utah.
Mitt Romney Wonders Why Ann Romney’s Airplane Windows Don’t Roll Down http://huff.to/UA0gET via @HuffPostTravel
Hi, everyone! Hope you’re all doing well. Just got this in my email and wanted to share. I hope it hasn’t been posted yet, but here it is again if it has:
We’re gearing up to share Michelle Obama’s first set of answers to all the awesome questions you submitted. For the first installment, the First Lady will be sharing her thoughts on education and women’s health. It’s been so fun to hear from all of you and we still want to hear what you’re thinking! Women are at the center of attention during this 2012 election season, and it’s more important than ever for us to get out there and vote. We are announcing a special interview series with First Lady Michelle Obama on PopSugar. Over the next few weeks, she will be here to answer your questions about the election and all the issues we are facing as women during this election time. We want to hear what’s on your mind, so share your questions. What are your concerns about women’s health care? Jobs? Education? Balancing being a working mom and wife? Whatever is on your mind, ask away; every week, the first lady will tackle your questions on a range of topics. Here’s Michelle Obama announcing our series in her own words.
Thanks for this. I hope you post links as the interviews become available.
Will do! :)
In light of the MittPlaneFeatures stuff, someone on DU reminded me of one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes. Gotta share it! :-)
heavens above!! i remember seeing this while sitting on the rug in front of our little television box! it was sooo scary!
now, it’s absolutely hilarious! thanks dudette.
I knew there was a reason I liked you Dudette. TTZ was one of my all time favorite shows back in the day. I even met Rod Serling when I was in the Navy on the left coast. He was an arrogant little sucker but put together a brilliant show. Very thought provoking.
It’s pretty amazing how Chips brought all us cool people together! ;-)
Hey everyone, I know some of you were talking earlier about the WHpresscorps twitter account, I only got a chance now to check it out and it’s just beyond belief today – it looks to me like whoever’s behind it has had an anti-PBO meltdown. As I tweeted to BWD:
@theonlyadult Any idea who's behind whpresscorps? Frenzied anti-PBO bile 2day, even RTing Erickson, Koffler, Starnes & Newsbusters. Meltdown— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) September 24, 2012
Does anyone know who’s behind it?
This page lists leadership of the White House Correspondents Association
Anything stand out?

Margaret Talev, Bloomberg News
Do we know that this is the same organization that is behind the Twitter Account? On the link you provided, I don’t see any Twitter account listed on their contact info page. Also, the organization is referred to as WHCA, not WHPresscorps as it is called on the Twitter account.
Yes the WH Press Corps are the nutballs that grill Carney with repetitive and idiotic questions daily.
My best guess as to who is behind this is Jake Tapper. I see posts from Aug. when he says PBO giving interviews to People and Ent. Tonight is the “last straw” for him, that he “can’t stand” any more of this behavior from the president, avoiding his hard hitting questions, going to the fluff media. And I’m wondering if The View appearance set him off and was his last, last straw.
Either him or Ed Henry—-Chuck Todd seethes at PBO too.
If you check all the postings from the press corps in the Obama era, they’re all negative.
I know the WH Press corps journalists have been negative towards PBO, and they are rooting for a Romney presidency. But I am not convinced that it’s they who are running this account. Their reputations surely would be at stake here if it ever becomes public that they are running this account, and tweeting these vile comments about the President from it.
I always thought “White House Press Corp” was an alias for the Correspondents Association. Could be wrong though.
Wikipedia (I know, not necessarily authoritative, but useful): “The White House Press Corps is the group of journalists or correspondents usually stationed at the White House in Washington, D.C. to cover the president of the United States, White House events and news briefings. Their offices are located in the West Wing.” The link to WHCA above was on that entry.
Got this reply on Twitter, Dudette:

“useless faux troll”
Its not the name that’s so much the issue. They could use the name and still be a parody account. There are several “Barack Obama” accounts on Twitter, but we know that its only one of them that is actually authorized by the President and from which he tweets.
I’m not saying that it couldn’t be someone in the Main Stream media who’s operating behind this account, but it’s not linked to the WHCA.
Ah… looks like a spoof/faux account based on tweets above. Just checked to make sure I’m not following that crap. Thanks for the heads up Chips!!
Just read through it and it’s pretty much all hate and smear. No idea who is behind it. Is it normally better?
Might as well let them know we’ve noticed :)

It’s because they sometimes put this stuff in with an IPhone….that’s what my summer fellow told me. Yes, I HAVE noticed this!
Have you all seen the new headlines on HuffPost. Bernie Sanders says he feels Obama will cut Social Security during the lame duck session as part of the debt reduction deal. Can you tell me why Bernie cannot wait until Obama wins to start his shit. The article is by Sam Stein.
He was on one of the shows on Friday and said that. I changed the channel. He and 21 or 29 other Dems wrote a letter to the President asking whether he intends to cut Social Security.
I’m glad they asked … now, President Obama can respond formally and shut it down thereby strengthening his case against #BainMitt & #LyinRyan …
Dear President @BarackObama Please inform @SenSanders & others that you will not cut Social Security benefits, ever. TY cc @Pfeiffer44 @vj44— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 24, 2012
OMG—geez. I wonder why he felt the need to throw that out there at this time, and who’s feeding him this propaganda—-or did he dream it? Idiotic.
Bernie Sanders loves to showboat and get his face on television. He’s as useless as the other characters who appeal to the emoprogs – Feingold, Weiner, Grayson, Kucinich. All about talking, not much in the way of results.
I can not stand that man, Bernie Sanders.
The President has said he wants to raise the cap on SS, and Means Test More Wealthy individuals.
If that is not good for Sanders, he can Retire, he acts like a Brontosaurus.
If he raises the cap he may not need to means test SS benefits. If you pay into it, you should get it no matter how many millions you get. If it is means tested than what about people who NEVER paid into it?
Sam Stein mentioned on Morning Joe how the President won’t grant him an interview!
Wonder why that is Sammy Stein?
POB is no fool. Stein is a two-faced person and not to be trusted. POB does not waste his precious time on people like Stein.
There is an excellent Exclusive article in Oct., Vanity Fair. Interview with POB done with Michael Lewis. I thought it was nicely done. Please check it out. HZ
I havee never forgiven tein. The president gave him access as a blogger when he asked him a question. When the D.C media turned on him, he in turn trashed PBO instead of standing on his ground and basking in the gloy that PBO had asked a blogger a question in a pressor. As for Sanders he likes to trash PBO on Hartman that I no longer listen to the first hour on fridays.
Don’t feel bad Sam, he hasn’t given me one either, but then again I’m not some pompous ass Republican shill.
yours truly, D
Bernie Sanders is like the boy who cried Wolf. Everytime I see his mug on tv, I turn or mute the channel until his interview is over. He is getting worse. Why is he saying s*** like this when we are only a month away from the election. It serves no purpose. Those 29 Dems could have kept those signatures because PBO will not be backed and bullied into a corner.

‘ If you’ve vacationed in Hawaii, you know the come-hither scent of flowers, the trade winds cooling the peaks and the warmth of the southern ocean.
Now imagine growing up here, where Barack Obama was born, exposed from the first to a culture where the impossible has evolved: a multi-racial society, tolerant of differences and busily pursuing the delights and challenges of daily life.
For voters still wondering why Obama stays cool, thinks things through and keeps an eye focused on peaceful solutions, look toward the 50th state. The “ah-hah!” clues to the man have been right here all along, waiting to be mined. ‘

Yep, that’s been my impression since I first heard of him and having visited the 50th state a number of times (military brat that I am).

I just love them to pieces! And it looks like Joy feels about Michelle the same way I do, lol — how adorable is that? I haven’t watched the View Shrews in forever but I will definitely set my DVR for tomorrow.
(WTH does Whoopi have on her feet? I wonder if she actually stood up or walked in those things or if she put them on for sitting purposes only…)
Thank you Bobfr. I think Sam Stein should take down that article. It is not news. It is conjecture. It has no basis in fact. I think Sanders and Stein are seeing the polls and Romney/Ryan are losing the seniors vote so this is to help them

@DavidCornDC #BainMitt's disdain extends well beyond the #47Percent. Encourage your media colleagues to reflect on how much harm he would do— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 25, 2012
Okay, so Dullard Rmoney is an idiot. Just caught up on his “aircraft” insanity. Yikes!!! Can I just point out, Sistuh Moose isn’t this dumb.
Oh yes she is !! Lisa, smashing success on your orals. Don’t know anything about you personally except a student but big congrats. Love your fierceness and your potty mouth, much warranted :-D
I learned everything I know from Princess Pottymouth aka Tally! ;) thanks so much EDP!!
See what you’ve done Tally? Before Lisa met you this was her:
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!! :lol: Aw shucks, ma’am. ;)
Laughed my butt off when I read someone on the interwebs (sorry, forgot which site) called Mitt “The Ted Baxter of Politics”! Is that not PERFECT?!!!
Ted Baxter without the likability.
Willie Geist named Today Co-Host.

They dumped Ann Curry for HIM?!! Really? [there must be an SNL skit in there somewhere!]
Anotther man that will get low ratings and will keep HIS job.
