    I feel so damned good about this election! So good! I’m actually giddy! I’m hoping to early vote on Wednesday or next Saturday. I’m going home to cast my vote for PBO! Forget the polls, peeps! Look at the electoral map!
    Ps- Ohio! Don’t let us down! Iowa, the same goes, so too for WI!
    Pps- I’d love for PBO to win FL, just as an FU to Willard, but in this election, we can’t afford to be petty! Eyes on the prize baby! I smell VICTORY!!!!
    Ppps- vote like your life depends on it: it does.

      I smell victory too!!!

      I awoke this morning just so calm and at peace about the elections for the first time. I just can’t explain it, but something very powerful happened in heaven today and this election has been called for President Obama!!!

      I believe it with every fiber in my being!!!

      It is now up to all of us to step up and put the finishing touches to what will be a glorious victory!!!

      Shalom.

      Forward!!!

      Me too – I was watching CNN online (cause in those days I knew little about US media other than CNN) and had to wait until the west closed to actually believe that PBO had won – brought back the faith in the US that we knew before those WMD.

        By then I was watching MSNBC (loved Keith O’s passion and Rachel’s analysis). On election night, we were in a restaurant that would only show CNN or FOX though. Whole family alternatde between fear of 2000 repeat & depression until 11PM ET when Wolf made the announcement. We were shocked, then elated!!!

        But, remember, we were sent a text message on 62262 just after the election was called, from Barack, thanking us for all we had done to make history, then he went out in stage to accept his achievement! And later, the first 1,000,000 donors to the campaign, found in our mailboxes one day, a gold embossed invitation to the Inauguration ~ the One in a Million invitations…. Amazing! Priceless! Historic!

      I checked Nate Silver obsessively every day. On election night I was out knocking on doors to make sure people could get to the polls or had voted. Everyone we contacted had already voted. We came back to the headquarters at about 8:00 when the polls closed. I watched for a while at the HQ and then decided to drive home. I was in the car when they called Ohio, and I just started screaming and blaring my horn. I diverted to my friend’s house – I just had to be with someone who was as excited as I was. She and her husband were in their pjs watching the tv and jumping around like maniacs!

    Great story about lunch at the pizza place in Davenport today. Here’s part of it:
    The President ate all but two of the slices in his 8-slice pie, and left “a fabulous” tip after lunch, Sierra said. She declined to say how much, but said the President paid the bill in cash. He also tried to calm his over-the-moon server, who is 32 and has worked at the eatery since June.

    “I was very, very nervous, and extremely excited,” Sierra said. “I am a big supporter of Obama, so that made it even worse.”

    The President’s guests were Vicki Felger, a nurse and health care assistant; Marcia Teshak, a retired phone company worker; and Deb Willaredt. One of the women was surprised that the President knew personal details about her, according to pool.

    “I told you, I do my homework before I sit down,” the President was overheard saying. “I am not
    just going to show up. You guys know everything about me. I would be at a disadvantage.”

    Sierra said the President “was a gentleman” during the lunch, putting everyone at ease, and continuing to calm her down.

    “He was very down to earth,” Sierra said. “He hugged me, and remembered my name–he said ‘Coco, I still need my check.'”

        “I don’t know how these guys come up with these ideas…rape is rape. It is a crime.”

        Well said Mr. President! I am sick and tired of these Republicans trivializing GOD! Using their logic, If a woman is killed by a rapist we should attribute her death to GOD. Do any of these Republican men running for office have wives, daughters, sisters or mothers?

        By the way, Chips, judging from the last two debates, I think we should be demanding to see Romney’s grades that got him into Stanford and Harvard. I suspect he might have been a legacy student because his performance did not reveal such a great intellect; but then again, neither does the performance of Donald Trump. I doubt that Mitt or the Donald would have amounted to anything if it weren’t for their rich daddies.

    Ok so I posted the live interview #2 did with ABC channel 7 news at the Fairfax Va rally last week. From the same rally is a print interview. She’s on page 3 of this publication. She talks about being an unemployed recent graduate, voting for PBO. Her main reason is being able to stay on my health insurance. Well, she’s since gotten a confirmation from Spain that a teaching job she’d applied to has opened up. So now #2 will be on her way to employment. Funny thing is, she will get health services there without having to go through insurance companies. Here’s the link: http://connectionarchives.com/PDF/2012/102412/Herndon.pdf

      Congratulations to your daughter on her job! Good for her being willing to go and experience a different country.different culture! My daughter spent 3 months in Tours, France+2 weeks in Ouagadougou in her junior year, worked for 6 months in England as a substitute teacher, and just got back from a year in Tours working on her MA in French. I was able to visit her there early this summer. Beautiful town beautiful country – she loved it! She (and I!) would go back in a heartbeat.

        Thanks maryl1, she is looking forward to the trip. Me, not so much. It sounds like our daughters are kind of on the same track. How exciting it must have been for her. I took French through high school and spent 6 weeks there on a summer program. I can’t speak or understand a lick of French. #2 worked a summer with children in Ecuador. Then in a woman’s hospital in Senegal, Africa as part of her biology degree. I call her a bag lady extraordinaire. After Spain, she has plans on getting into a MA/PHD program in cultural anthropology. I will officially be a true empty nester. My #1 and my grandchildren moved to No Dakota in August.

He’s back in the area, still finishing BA degree in Art, but he’s so busy I hardly see him. Daughter is doing second year of degree in Bowling Green Ohio. I know she wants to move back to France if she can. Your daughter sounds amazing! It’s hard on us, but isn’t it great to have raised such interesting and adventurous children?

      If you can send her off with an unlocked phone (one that works with any international carrier) and a laptop with internet capability (and Skype), it’ll make the separation a little easier. Once she get’s settled in, DO go and visit her if you can. That way you can be a part of that experience too. My sister did a couple of tours in the AF in Spain. Let me know where daughter’s gonna be and I’ll see if sis can offer some scoop on the locale. She’ll want to find out where the expats hangout while she’s there.

We’ve gotten the background check, the finger printing, and now the VISA. She’ll be in Ponte Vedra, on the northwestern side of Spain. Thanks for your offer to see is sis can scoop the area. I really would like to visit, but not sure about the long flight. She’s hanging around til Nov 7. She doesn’t want to leave before she sees PBO soundly elected to office.

          You are probably right hopefruit2! On the other hand, President Obama is very secure about himself. Try as they may, they media will never be able to erase his impressive accomplishments in his first term. Obama’s first term accomplishments are as good as any of the best Presidents before him, if not better. Honest historian not blinded by racism will acknowledge that.

    Paul Ryan proved what a fool he is today suggesting “private charity” is the way to go – no doubt the sort of charity that picks what/who it wants to support – maybe like Komen that spends much of its funds on itself and tries to defund groups that really help women. Perhaps he meant the charities that help pregnant women & dump them on the streets after the babe is born (while suggesting they give the children up for adoption).

    Private charity demands the poor and needy fall over themselves in the “thank you masta” vane – it has no place in current society other than an adjunct to government safety nets. I support 2 charities each year (with only a small amount) but I choose which ones – there would be mayhem if this was the total program.

    Paul Ryan has 19th century ideas on poverty relief – if anyone has been involved in research on poverty as existed before governments provided safety nets – they know the failure that was “private charity”

    President Obama – he talked programs and education and employment and helping folks to help themselves – He understands the reality of poverty – he doesn’t ignore it and grind people down as do Romney/Ryan. I am incensed that this pair consider they have any strenths of use to the American people. Wow – did PBO get me going today – bless him & keep him safe

      I listen to a small amount – simply to know what they are spinning – this is close to the worst I have ever heard – bringing religion into government services – he’s preaching – not campaigning. The GOP nominees are turning to “God” because their policies are big failures.

    • 376 57andfemale
      October 25, 2012 at 1:55 am

      A little history lesson for the uninformed Paul Ryan: the reason the government got involved in providing a safety net in the early 20th century is because PRIVATE CHARITY FAILED and was unable and unwilling to fill the need of the disadvantaged in a fair way.

      A poor Jewish kid (like my parents, pulling the peddler’s cart in the streets of NY) could not avail themselves of “Christian” charities unless they swore allegiance to Jesus Christ.

      The whole point of the government FINALLY stepping in (thanks to brave people like Jane Adams) was that there could no longer be these petty, religious tests in order to get a bowl of soup.

      The notion,particularly under this tax situation, that charity will fill the gap is as retrogressive an idea as I’ve ever heard.

      By the way, did Paul Ryan step in and make up the difference for that St. Vincent DePaul soup kitchen when his party decided to decimate it?

      Crickets. you fucking hypocrite, Paul Ryan.

    The problem this time: 27,000 filled-out absentee ballots in Palm Beach County that were misprinted and cannot be read by tabulation machines. County officials are having the results from all those ballots copied onto properly laid-out ballots, with representatives from both the Obama and Romney campaigns watching for signs of trouble.

      TAMPA, Fla. – President Barack Obama has resumed his campaign marathon in Florida, delivering doughnuts to a firehouse less than five hours after he wrapped up the previous day’s campaigning in Las Vegas.

      On the way to his first scheduled event Thursday, Obama and his entourage pulled into a Krispy Kreme store near downtown Tampa. He chatted with two young brothers and bought them doughnuts after asking their father for permission. Then he bought four dozen glazed doughnuts to go.

      The president delivered the still warm doughnuts to firefighters and emergency workers at a firehouse in Tampa. He told the crew he’s normally not out this early, but wanted to come by to thank them for their work. http://www.startribune.com/politics/national/175766941.html

    Have you seen this?? :) http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/10/obamas-edge-the-ground-game-that-could-put-him-over-the-top/264031/#

    Obama’s office suite in Sterling was in an office park next to a dentist’s office. The front window was plastered with Obama-Biden signs, the door was propped open, and the stink bugs that plague Virginia in the fall crawled over stacks of literature — fliers for Senate candidate Tim Kaine, Obama bumper stickers — piled on a table near the front reception desk. In rooms in front and back, volunteers made calls on cell phones, while in the interior, field staffers hunched over computers. One wall was covered with a sheet of paper where people had scrawled responses to the prompt, “I Support the President Because…”, while another wall held a precinct-by-precinct list of neighborhood team leaders’ email addresses.

    Only about a mile down the road was the Republican office, a cavernous, unfinished space on the back side of a strip mall next to a Sleepy’s mattress outlet. On one side of the room, under a Gadsden flag (“Don’t tread on me”) and a poster of Sarah Palin on a horse, two long tables of land-line telephones were arrayed. Most of the signs, literature, and buttons on display were for the local Republican congressman, Frank Wolf. A volunteer in a Wolf for Congress T-shirt was directing traffic, sort of — no one really seemed to be in charge and there were no paid staff present, though there were several elderly volunteers wandering in and out. The man in the T-shirt allowed me to survey the room but not walk around, and was unable to refer me to anyone from the Romney campaign or coordinated party effort.

    These basic characteristics were repeated in all the offices I visited: The Obama offices were devoted almost entirely to the president’s reelection; the Republican offices were devoted almost entirely to local candidates, with little presence for Romney. In Greenwood Village, Colorado, I walked in past a handwritten sign reading “WE ARE OUT OF ROMNEY YARD SIGNS,” then had a nice chat with a staffer for Rep. Mike Coffman. In Canton, Ohio, the small GOP storefront was dominated by “Win With Jim!” signs for Rep. Jim Renacci. Obama’s nearest offices in both places were all Obama. In Canton, a clutch of yard signs for Sen. Sherrod Brown leaned against a wall, but table after table was filled with Obama lit — Veterans for Obama, Women for Obama, Latinos for Obama, and so on. The Obama campaign uses cell phones exclusively, while the Republicans use Internet-based land line phones programmed to make voter calls. Every Obama office has an “I Support the President Because…” wall, covered with earnest paeans to Obamacare and the like.
