Top 10 again! Whoa.
Yaaaaaaardarm! I think you’ll have to share this with Japa
See, I knew she would come through for both of us.
I have lots of those pics in binders, especially for you and Yardarm!
Ooooh, and for amk too!! How on EARTH could I forget you?
Can you send me the binders?
Isn’t she lovely?
Now that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout! Lawd ham mercy!
YAy, one for the team.
Way to go YardArm! See, moms were right when they said ‘persistence pays off’. CONGRATULATIONS for topping’ the top five’, YA!
Aren’t we early today ?
Works for me but I’m way behind some others, that I can’t mention here.
Keep missing. WTG wingman. I have a hunch I will appreciate Chips reward for you.
What always stands out in these pictures is the diversity of the President’s crowds, compared to the rather universally … pale … complexions at Romney’s events.
Yes and lots of my pale people tribe in this photo above! I want to ask if anyone on TOD is going to be canvassing in Iowa tomorrow (Saturday) leaving from downtown Chicago at 7a.m. I’m going to be on that OFA bus and would love to meet you if you are going too!
I was originally considering it, but my m-i-l’s condition has taken a turn for the worse, so sticking close.
I’m sorry to hear that about your mother-in-law. I understand and would have loved to meet you.
Sorry japa. Hope everything goes well.
Exactly Norbrook, it’s so striking in every single photo. Romney crowds just look like a snow blizzard.
more like salt mountains.
or an ice factory
It is Friday. TGIF
Gonna se Veep Joe in St. Augustne manana.
Make that “see” sheesh!
Please tell him “Jackie from Illinois” said hello. He’ll know me. (I wish.)

Huge news guys; especially in a swing state.
HUGE News: Denver Post endorsed Romney in the primaries but in a sharp turn, they 100% endorse Pres. Obama for 2012. denverpost.com/opinion/ci_218…— (@utaustinliberal) October 19, 2012
Wonderful news, but I assume the endorsement for Mitt was only in the Republican primary, and not an endorsement for the GE.
That’s what I wrote in the tweets.
If you’re at home or anywhere with a TV, C-SPAN One will air VP Biden’s event on TV and Pres. Obama’s event online.
Watchin’, and Ridin’ with Biden!
One of these things is not like the other. Can you guess?
National polls published in past 24 hours: Obama +3.2, Obama +3, Obama +3, Obama +1, Obama +0.6, Obama +0.5, TIE, Romney +7.— Nate Silver (@fivethirtyeight) October 19, 2012
This is hard ck…very hard! I need a hint or something.
Yeah, come on Collegekay, put us out of our misery, what the’s answer?
DING, DING, DING, we have a WINNER!!
Great post at bj on the third debate
Bin Laden is dead. The Iraq war is over. Eviscerated al-Qaeda leadership. Gaddafi is dead. Prevented a massacre in Libya. Mubarak is gone. Afghanistan war is moving to a close. Iran is facing unprecedented economic sanctions. New START treaty in place. Free-trade agreements with Korea, Colombia, and Panama. Strengthened relationships in Latin America. Restored relationships with our allies. Led an international effort to ensure the emergence of an independent South Sudan. Kept the country safe from another 9/11 type attack.
What part of this do you oppose, Mr Romney?
“But PBO didn’t start another war to prove we’re STRONG. PBO is WEAK! Diplomacy and all that hogwash. WEAK”.
Women know a little something about men who have to bluster like that……..
Fantastic comment, amk. Thanks for sharing it.
Thanks Chips. Just look at all that serious girl power behind Ms. Cecile!
y756, congrats on being first.
(ahem) It’s Friday (/ahem)
Huh, like I didn’t remember that.
I was just thinking of that. Thank you both (not that you didn’t remember, Chips, of course)!
I just got a chance to view the video with Jon Stewart last night and WOW, WOW, Wow. This is POTUS in TOP form. From start to finish, he OWNED the stage, speaking masterfully on every subject, getting in lots and lots of key taking points succinctly and beautifully. He owned Stewart, too. He was sharp, respectful and funny. BRAVO, Mr. President!!
Agree. Can’t wait until the foreign policy debate.
I know, right? I’m not dreading this at all. I think he’s wipe the floor with him. Just hope Bob Scheiffer gets out of the way.
The President will make his first brilliant comment and it’ll take Bob 10 minutes to decide where to go next. Do I go right? Do I go left? Do I jump out of the moderator’s seat?
If there is one thing I’m sure of about debate prep, it’s that the whole team will devise tactics/strategies to use if Schieffer isn’t able to control Romney.
Can’t the crowds boo AND vote? I want booing freedom!
Can’t the crowds boo
That’s what twitter is for.
I understand ya, dotster3!
PBO’s speech is tight! I love this update. He’s READY TO WIN!!
OMG, PBO is EN FUEGO!!
I love that Romnesia that Mitt is suffering from. It’s cover by Obamacare.
You know we have been wondering what the hell is wrong with Mitt Romney. Now we know. He is suffering from ROMNESIA. Obamacare covers it even though it’s a pre-existing condition. Love POTUS speech this morning.
You know we have been wondering what the hell is wrong with Mitt Romney. Now we know
Romnesia…brilliant. I’ve been waiting for this kind of attack on Robme’s flip flopping
HE IS BURNING IT UP!!!!
Indeed…loving this So glad I can watch
#ROMNESIA …. that’s gonna be a HOT HOT HOT hashtag!!!!
"I think what Mitt's going through is #ROMNESIA …. want to be sure no one else catches it" LOL!!!! President Obama, Today!!!! #FORWARD— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 19, 2012
This will definitely leave a highway of marks on Mitt’s butt ….
"Mitt, If you can't remember what you've been saying for 6 yerars, here's the good news #OBAMACARE covers pre-existing conditions" #ROMNESIA— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 19, 2012
And, this PBO is totally ON FIRE today!!!!!
Fry him, Mr President. Fry the mofo.
I’m sure ol’ Queen Ann has an ol’ cauldron in her ol’ kitchen she’ll lend, to get that job done.
Hey folks, time to get vaccinated, so that we don’t come down with Romnesia.
Obama care covers preexisting conditions! He’s on fire
POTUS is right on this morning.
One determined Navajo elder:
“Obtaining a state issued ID is a lot harder than some people might think. Agnes Laughter, an elder from the small rural town of Chilchinbeto on the Navajo Nation, tried time and time again. But Laughter, who only speaks Navajo, was told she didn’t have the right documentation. Determined to not be defeated, she enlisted the help of a dozen volunteers to help with gathering documents, and providing interpretation and legal assistance so that she could finally get her ID. Countless others on the Navajo Nation remain in a similar predicament.”
Totally outrageous. A Navajo elder has to prove she’s a citizen??? It’s OUR ancestors who arrived without papers. (Not all of us willingly.)
Crowd estimate at PBO’s “Romnesia” rally to be about 9,000.
PBO: "I have a real plan, not a sales pitch."— meta (@metaquest) October 19, 2012
ROMNESIA!!!!!!!! Pres. Obama is freaking fantastic.
Brilliant …and in about 10 seconds 158 tweets!
Well, folks, can you just imagine what he’s gonna do to #ChickenHawkMitt on Monday night ….. that was, without doubt, the fiercest campaign speech I’ve heard President Obama deliver since the day he first announced his campaign in 2007.
These next 2 weeks are going to be SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ONE OF THE VERT BEST SPEECHES POTUS HAS EVER DONE, hands down!!!!
Mark Knoller is an idiot!
@markknoller Obama closes his Romnesia riff by saying it's ok if you have it because Obamacare covers pre-existing conditions— Keith Cosentino (@keithjc) October 19, 2012
Mark Knoller you are pulling a Mitt Romney here, you are lying. POTUS did say Romnesia is cover by Obamacare.
Here you go anniebella – I put your idea into a tweet!
@Markknoller clear suffers from #Romnesia. He didn't remember President Obama saying that the condition was covered by ObamaCare!— (@aspirational12) October 19, 2012
@markknoller – Either listen to the speech. Or at least look at other tweets, you twit.— (@amk4obama) October 19, 2012
I guess that twit is also suffering from Romnesia – as is most of the MSM!
Pres. Obama: "If you've got #Romnesia, here's the good news; ObamaCare covers preexisting conditions." #Virginia— (@utaustinliberal) October 19, 2012
POTUS: "Gov. Romney has changed so many positions lately that we've got a name for the condition he's going through. I think it's #Romnesia"— (@utaustinliberal) October 19, 2012
Pres. Obama: "ObamaCare covers pre-existing conditions like #Romnesia. We have a cure. This is a curable disease!" #Virginia— (@utaustinliberal) October 19, 2012
Pres. Obama: "Mr. Severely Conservative wants you to think he was severely kidding." He has Romnesia." #Virginia— (@utaustinliberal) October 19, 2012
Wow, he is letting him have it, doesn’t he ?
POTUS always saves the best for last. Killer punch to finish the fight. And he does it with a smile. BOOM!!
#Romneysia is trending on Twitter!!!
@Messina2012 So 'Doctor Obama' recommends we all VOTE as the surest vaccination to prevent a serious #ROMNESIA infection!!! BRILLIANT!!!!!— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 19, 2012
BO: "If ou say that you're a champion of the coal industry, yet while u were Governor, u said a coal plant would kill you. U have Romnesia"— (@utaustinliberal) October 19, 2012
BO: "If you say you support women but you support a legislation that allows employers to dictate contraceptive coverage, you have Romnesia"— (@utaustinliberal) October 19, 2012
Pres. Obama: "This is 2012 and women should be paid equal pay for equal work." #ObamaInVA— (@utaustinliberal) October 19, 2012
BO: Romney wants to take us back to the policies of the 1950s. Even his running mate said he's a throwback to the 50s. That's where we agree— (@utaustinliberal) October 19, 2012
Why the fuck is this presidential race even close? More proof we have to expand and improve our education standards. Wake the hell up!— Kari Hope (@TyJuanOn) October 19, 2012
O'Bama! 96% of Irish people would back Pres Obama & VP Biden if they had a vote, according to a Sept poll by Gallup. forward.com/articles/16433…— The Obama Diary (@TheObamaDiary) October 16, 2012
LUCK of the GREEN!!!!
The one-quarter Irish that is me loves this! So, Gallup doesn’t lie abroad?
Romnesia is trending on twitter.
p.s Romnesia is trending worldwide. Hot damn! Pres. Obama is fantastic.
Best speech ever!!!!!!!!
That was superb !! I think PBO just hooked a whole lot more voters with that it. The enthusiasm was off the charts.
Strike the “it”.
Thank ut, for all your tweets re#Romnesia. This has as much juice,er potential, as #Romneyshambles.
My wish is that someone (looking at you, hopefruit) propagates this meme to a rec listed diary at GOS. The more eyeballs, the more participants.
I've never seen rope line lose their minds like this.POTUS shaking dozens of hands simultaneously, people grabbing hugs, patting him on back— meta (@metaquest) October 19, 2012
It was a sight to see Meta. Loved it.
Wall Street is scaaaaaaaaared.
Andrew Sorkin on MSNBC…pro-Romney Wall Street now donating to Obama in panic after bashing POTUS w/ smear ads..now see Obama winning— Jeff Gauvin (@JeffersonObama) October 19, 2012
Hey Amk, you need to stay up late tonight for a double shift! I’m off for a 3hr work stint (1-4pm) and don’t want to feel totally out of things. I’ll tag in and free you up as soon as I get back. See you later TODobots!
Heh, hold on a minute there. I was about to say gunnite. I got some saudis to pick up at the airport bright and early.
Let them wait! I’ll pick them up for you on my way back. Bye! Absolutely got to run to be on time.
So happy to be watching our Vice President right now on C-Span One TV. Joey made a crack on flip-flopping that “everything with Romney-Ryan depends” (like on what day of the week it is). The audience got the Depends joke, even though Joey skipped over it.
New post everyone:
The John Kerry video just confirms what we always knew about Mitt: To know him is to loathe him.
