Imagine how far along this economy would be if the extreme right wing Republicans would work with the President instead of sabotage the economy.
Well, these Repubs have lost their chance. Nov 6 they have to be given an extended vacation so that the economy can get a fair chance.

The true utter brilliance of the Obama campaign
Almost EVERY Presidential election that involves an incumbent ends up being a referendum on the President’s performance.
Over the course of this summer and into the early fall, the Obama campaign has turned this election into a referendum on the challenger.
That is almost impossible to pull off. And they did it.
This team doesn’t fuck around. And they make Karl Rove look like a clown when it comes to setting the narrative of a campaign.
Want to know who the Democratic nominee will be in 2016? It will be whoever hires the likes of Axelrod, Plouffe, Cutter, Gibbs, etc. That person will be the nominee.
The smarts, baybee. Always wins in the end.
GM, amk! Yes they do!!
GM ? It’s almost GN in bsl.
Tomorrow, home sweet home.
Opps! I knew that:) Safe travels home….don’t forget to bring wifey something nice from your travels!!

Tea-party group FreedomWorks is sending staff and additional resources to aid Arizona Republican Jeff Flake’s Senate campaign, another sign his race against Democrat Richard Carmona is tightening in the traditionally red state.
FreedomWorks for America, the conservative advocacy group’s super PAC, will be opening an office — or “Victory Center” — next week in Flake’s hometown of Mesa, the group confirmed. FreedomWorks currently has these Victory Centers in such swing states as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, but this is the first for Arizona.
The Cats out of the Bag now!
Lurv it. Make the thugs spend their fecking cu money in their own ‘fortresses’.
Flake is just another useless, bought and paid for politician from AZ….I hope Carmona kicks his sorry ass. They’re afraid. The fact that a 12 term congressman is virtually TIED with a new candidate, must make them break out in cold sweats at night.
Tell me how you really feel DF. :)
Now. Don’t get her started.
Carmona has an excellent ad. He not only was Surgeon General, he is also a vet, he is hispanic,
, he is a Democrat (which is the winning side, this election!),
I haven’t been there lately. I used to go there quite a bit for the 2010 election cycle. I have done phonebanking at the SEIU office on 7th Street, and the Democratic party headquarters on Thomas. I am working on a big case for work right now so haven’t been able to do much except donate my overtime to the campaign.
That is weird. I was responding to DF below and yet here I am.
JOB he is actually an Independent. My firm has hosted a couple of fundraisers and I heard him speak. Hopefully he will pick up some of those moderate Republicans that have been in the closet for a couple of years.
Oh, thought the article said Dem. But good if he brings out the Is and the moderate Rs!
He has quite a story to tell….in a good way. The fact that he served as Surgeon General under Poppy Bush should play well here:)
Jackie, do you ever go down to OFA Headquarters? We could meet there….just sayin!
See above DF. Anyway, my hope is to be able to do some data entry once my time frees up. It was nice to miss the canvassing in the summer. Last time we were canvassing in 112 degree heat.
Disappointed leftist? Read and weep. The differences matter enough so get off the soapbox and vote! huffingtonpost.com/rebecca-solnit… .@TheObamaDiary-— (@rchakras) September 28, 2012
Interesting article by Ms. Solnit. Hope the “disappointed” lefties get up off their butts and vote for our President. However, I have to admit that I’ve stopped reading Huffington Post ever since Ms. Huffington wrote an article which appeared to suggest that she was not going to vote. Good to see a sensible article on that website.
This is a wonderful article, a bit long but well worth it. Thanks for sharing DF.
Poor Pathetic Mitt and Pity Party Ann.
And I laugh.

Obama blocks sale of Oregon wind farms to Chinese company-Citing national security risks, President Barack Obama on Friday blocked a Chinese company from owning four wind farm projects in northern Oregon near a Navy base where the U.S. military flies unmanned drones and electronic-warfare planes on training missions.
It was the first time in 22 years that a U.S. president blocked such a foreign business deal. …http://grist.org/politics/obama-blocks-sale-of-oregon-wind-farms-to-chinese-company/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
“Well, he could fall off the stage.”
— Obama traveling press secretary Jen Psaki, in what BuzzFeed calls “an almost comical attempt” to lower expectations for President Obama in next week’s debate with Mitt Romney
me too :)
In an unscheduled appearance at a Jewish deli in Boca Raton, Florida, Vice President Joe Biden launched into an impassioned defense of the Obama administration’s health care law.
Steve Grossman, 39, approached Biden’s table to ask him about the law. Grossman identified himself as a father of two, working in the financial services industry.
While eating a tuna sandwich surrounded by a handful of restaurant patrons, Biden defended the provisions of the law as beneficial to a middle class family.
“It will help you dramatically,” Biden explains. You’ll “be able to get better healthcare than you had before at a lower cost.”
Grossman explained that his health care currently cost him $13,000, and he pressed the vice president on whether the law would actually control or lower costs.
“There’s been all kinds of estimates,” Biden said. “You can get more benefits for less money.”
“So if the Republicans take the presidency this year, will all of those things that you put into effect be [repealed]?” Grossman asked.
“All gone,” Biden said. “As a matter of fact,” Biden said, you’re probably going to pay more, because “we’re back to square one” in terms of the benefits that are already in effect now being also repealed.
Financial Services Industry? Sounds like a Conservative Banker. Imagine, the VP can’t even eat his lunch, without some Tea bagger freaking out over the ACA? Sigh!
Ah, yes, but it was a teachable moment for Vice President Biden, and he handled it magnificently! That’s a win!
And that’s one of the good things about our spokepersons – they know their stuff, and can explain it in words of relevant syllables. The GOP generally only know enough to repeat the talking points. God forbid that they are able to share info in their own words.
Right. Their own words would probably be even more dumbstruck, so we might be luckier than we think.
Making the assumption he is a conservative is way off. I work in a mortgage banking company where the majority are Dems. Perhaps many on Wall Street are Republicans but 80% of people in the financial industry are earning $50K and below as well as a huge number of women and minorities. Remember financial industry includes customer service reps, bank tellers, loan processors, closers, title company – all salaried people.

Rats! I missed FLOTUS. :( I did catch VPJoe & POTUS though. Too much going on I guess. :lol:
guy on Randi asking a question I’ve been wondering: what if the reason rwnjs are making a fuss about the polls now saying they’re skewed is because they plan to steal the election and then they can say: “see, we were right! the polls were skewed, but we still won.” ——- something fishy this way lives. don’t trust those freaks.
I always assume that Repubs are always trying to steal elections. That goes without saying given what happened in 2000. I don’t see how they can steal this election, however, since President Obama is up in almost all of the swing states. That’s too much stealing and they’re too dumb to pull it off. They pulled it off in 2000 because it was just Florida and they were able to get the Supreme Court involved. I don’t see President Obama being as docile as Gore was. President Obama knows how to fight.
I totally agree with you, PKay. I think cheating is GOP’s default option, which explains why they keep saying they are close, but I believe that they are underestimating the insight and capabilities of the Obama administration. I noted in the news yesterday that a couple of GOP groups had finally fired a dishonest company that they had previously hired to cheat for them, and I suspect that more of this type of stuff will come to light over the weeks ahead.
I don’t trust the rethugs, they’re the scum of the earth and that may very well be their tactic. Don’t know if the link below has previously been posted, but food for thought.
DOJ or FEC or whomever is the right authority really better on this or all hell’s liable to break loose.
that crossed my mind, too. we know they are not just wiling but positively thrilled to cheat, lie, and steal to elect their puppet. all eyes are on their voter suppression scheme, so if/when they hack the electronic voting machines, they still need a cover story. the ‘false polls’ sounds like it’s made for that scenario, especially because the fox news poll shows robmey down.
Actually, I think it’s the other way around. They are planning to try to delegitimize PBO’s win by suggesting that the polls were rigged to discourage GOP voters. RWNJ’s aren’t capable of stealing an election where the margin is so wide. It would be difficult to do and too obvious. It’s easier to steal a few thousand votes in one or two battleground states when the race is very close. But that is not enough to give Romney a victory.
Right now Romney is drawing crowds of a few hundred people to his rallies. That suggests a major lack of enthusiasm and is consistent with the polling.
AHHHHHHHHHHH…Love Colbert :)
@Lawrence Just how great a President is #PBO? #GOP were willing to risk a Great Depression to destroy him & he still created > 5M JOBS.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 28, 2012
How all my O folks this great getting up day in TODdy town!!! I would love to be a fly on the wall during the practice debate sessions of PBO and the Mittiful. PBO’s session is probably friendly, but firm. He and his sparring partner are probably relaxed but focused. As for the Mittfit’s session, there’s probably a lot of gnashing of teeth, hand wringing, and finger pointing. Mitt is probably acting like a wounded lion ready to chop of the head of anyone who dared try to help him.
My political take today is that I am feeling mighty fine about our team, yet know we can’t let up. We must manage our expectations and not get too high, nor too low. Go like we’re 20 points down.
The more I see the Lawrence O’Donnell video of the young Mitt Romney, the more disgusted I get. As the daughter of an Air Force vet, it makes me livid. Not only are his polices wrong, his character is base. And to aspire to the office of the presidency? It’s like a modern-day Icarus.
Yep, too much ambition and traveling too close to the sun, not knowing you’re gonna get burned. That would be Mitt’s perfect portrayal of Icarus, one of the few things he’s been good at, this election season.
Chronicling Mitt’s Mendacity, Vol. XXXVI
By Steve Benen
When Mitt Romney talked to “60 Minutes” last week, he said President Obama has “repeatedly shown a reckless disregard for the truth.” If there’s ever been a more blatant example of political “projection,” I don’t can’t think of it.
And yet, Romney is increasingly invested in this. This week, several reports noted that Romney intends to use next week’s debate to do some “fact check” the president. The Obama campaign, unimpressed, released a video this morning on the subject.
Of course, if the 2012 presidential race comes down to which candidate is more dishonest, Romney’s in trouble. Consider, for example, the 36th installment of my weekly series, chronicling Mitt’s mendacity.
1. Romney argued just yesterday that the crisis of military suicides would be made worse by looming cuts to the defense budget.
That’s plainly untrue.
2. In same speech, Romney said, “You realize we have fewer ships in the Navy than any time since 1917.”
This one again? Romney dropped this lie a while ago, but it’s apparently back.
3. Romney went on to say, in reference to the president, “[H]is plan also calls for trillion dollar deficits.”
Obama’s plan calls for trillions in deficit reduction.
So much more here……

Loving VP Joe’s speech with the seniors. He’s the right one to speak with them in his folksy manner, and they respond favorably, without animous, but with intellect and common sense.
The 47% video being viewed more than his RNC speech? Hahahahahahahahah…that has to burn.
And, Clint talking to a chair crushes #TheStench, as well :D :D
I’m kind of surprised that of all the convention-related videos, Mittens and Wife are last. Who actually wants that man to be President?
Ahhh … Martin Bashir’s calling this month “Ineptember” – relating to Mittens. Love it.

smith is not better than this. he’s one of the only original fox employees left there. he’s been happily collecting millions each year and spewing this garbage. f- shepard smith. why do you think they even put localized chases on a national show live…THEY WANT CRASHES OR SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HAPPEN!! it’s all a game to them. i bet there were hi-fives in the control room. not joking. these people help fool the country into “wars” leading to millions getting killed, then falsely defend it for the rest of their lives and wait until they can do it again. people that chose to work there are some of the most vile people on earth, especially the ones who have been there from day 1.
OMG! That’s OUTRAGEOUS! These hideous bastards really need to be pulled off the air!!!
PBO has been making a heck of a lot of speeches lately, all pretty close together. He seems a bit sketchy on this one, so it must be due to a combo of all the speeches, plus the debate practice. My recommendation for him (were he to ask me..LOL) would be to take a nice break this weekend with the family, and stop talking–save that golden voice and that sharp mind, to CRUSH the….opposition (thought I’d be nice right here),
Sketchy as in voice? I actually love it when his voice gets scratchy from over-use. He works his sexy ass off for us.
In_deed, and he just seems very relaxed … like it’s Friday afternoon and he’s with a bunch of supporters and everyone is enjoying it, including him :)
I wish I just half as much awesome natural comfy swagger as he does. I have a little….. :D
Not his voice per se, but the pauses. Let’s face it, he’s gifted, but he’s human and can over-do it like us all. I just hope he gives himself a break. Recall his aides in past years concerned about he tiring himself out. I understand this man because I burn the candle at both ends as well. No one ever doubts his ability or his resolve- he works like most people could not. Let’s also keep him in our prayers. And yes, he does have a “sexy ass” . See, Tally, what you made me say….;-D
go. me. :D
He’s going to Nevada this weekend for debate prep. He will probably be able to fit in some uninterrupted rest time away from the WH.
That’s good to know. Can’t help but want the best for him.
We all do and he’ll be fine. If I had half the schedule that he did, I would be in the ER (both psych and medical) this evening!

Heads up for Michelle:
Martin Bashir showed a clip on his show of David Axelrod, Secretary of Makin’ Me Laugh, who said this about Romney’s debate preps: “We know that Governor Romney’s been practicing for months. I think the invasion of Normandy took less preparation than he’s putting into these debates.”
Omg, I need to start googling Bashir’s videos. From what I have heard from comments here on TOD, he does sounds funny and truthful. I just hope it’s not going to be one of those stations that’s not available to Canadians :)
Where there’s a will, there’s a way! You’ll find it! :)
