      I’m glad President Obama is in Office, and know he will look at all sides of the problem and use his global alliances to try and resolve this Israel conflict. Personally, I think Netanyahu is a warmonger and a liar. His heavy handed aggressive actions on the Palestinians is despicable. Most people outside Israel and US do not trust him and hope he and his cohorts will be voted out.

        So agree, dudette. While most of us were wiped out just working on the election ,he had the heaviest burden of all and the most exhausting campaign schedule imaginable AND he also had a 24/7 day job. He didn’t get a moment to catch his breath before all the national/international problems piled on. He has inner resources that are beyond my imagination.

            Isn’t crossing your arms the “defense” posture? Like one has something to defend; i.e., guilty conscience over how he treated PBO just after the storm, until it probably seemed politically correct to him to endorse our President for re-election? Good thing Bloomberg is in love with himself, because that’s one in his court.

          He oughta choke on the damned humble pie from gut-wrenching GUILT. These people might’ve gotten help sooner if he didn’t turn down FEMA help before the storm. They could’ve had people and materials stationed in place up front, but noooo… Mikey wanted to make a statement & slapped back our President’s hand and said go away, we got this! Fuck that bastard.

    poor myth, he still hasn’t figured out that when you say something out loud it will likely be recorded and repeated. it can now be revealed that (surprise) robmey’s true political beliefs are exactly the opposite of what he said in the last month of the campaign. in fact, in the famous 47% tape, he’s speaking from( what passes in him for) the heart.

    ‘Another secret recording shows what Romney really thinks about minorities, birth control, and public assistance.’
    ~
    But now we have a second recording. It documents another conversation between Romney and his wealthiest contributors. This conversation isn’t six months, six weeks, or even six days old. It happened yesterday, on a conference call with Romney’s finance committee. The recording bears an uncanny resemblance to the 47 percent video. It strongly suggests that the Romney in the video is the real thing, and the Romney on TV is a fraud.
    ~
    When you read these quotes and listen to the audio, three patterns sink in. First, everything Romney says on the conference call is the opposite of what he said in the debates.
    ~
    Second, the Romney on the call matches the Romney in the 47 percent video. In the same resigned tone, he speaks of scores of millions of Americans hooked on free health care and other benefits. But this time, he itemizes the constituencies and reports that they’ve paid back their benefactor with their votes, just as he predicted.
    ~
    Third, the call belies everything Romney said in his attempts to clean up the 47 percent video.
    ~
    In the Oct. 4 Hannity interview, Romney excused his 47 percent riff as a one-time verbal flub “in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions.” On the call, at length, he repeats it.

      He lied to us at the beginning, in the middle and at the end. Only with his elite buddies does he reveal his dark soul. He wanted to be president so he could turn the White House into Versailles and bask in his power. He envied PBO the car, the house and the plane as he revealed in the first debate. He wanted to be King with his Queen at his side, sneering at the people and throwing little bits of bread he if deemed them worthy. Thank God our democracy dodged this poison.

    if Boehner and the rest of the GOP are so concerned about deficits during the recovery, then why are they making an either/or argument between tax cuts and loopholes? We should do BOTH – let the Bush tax cuts on the top 2% expire AND close loopholes. If the GOP think they can eliminate $1 trillion in loopholes, then it will be nearly $2 trillion in deficit reduction if we also let the Bush tax cuts expire. Those people have seen increases in wealth of many hundred percentage points during the life of those Bush tax cuts, while the middle class earnings have stagnated. The rich can afford to help pay down the deficit they created.

    • 86 jackiegrumbacher
      November 15, 2012 at 9:09 pm

      They don’t care about the deficit and never did. They care about protecting their rich masters and making trouble for the president. If they actually had a principle they believed in, they might be worth of a little respect, but they have no principles, just tactics of revenge.

    By Sam Baker and Elise Viebeck
    In a concession to Republican governors, the Obama administration extended the Friday deadline for states to decide whether they’ll implement their own insurance exchanges. In a letter to governors on the eve of the deadline, HHS gave states an extra month to file letters of intent on their exchanges.

    By The Hill’s count, eight states were undecided before the letter was released Thursday evening — Arizona, Idaho, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin. The extra time could help coax some of those states into creating their own exchanges, rather than leaving the task up to the federal government.

    Dec. 15 is the new deadline for states that want to run their own exchanges to make that intention known. States that don’t go that route will have until Feb. 14 to decide whether to work in partnership with the federal government or cede their exchange entirely to Washington.

        Well, don’t forget, the media was speculating based on zero information. There aren’t very many people who will sign up for the abuse being dished out in Washington (case in point: highly qualified Ambassador Susan Rice), and I don’t blame Deval Patrick for simply stating his plans. I don’t believe he’s backing out of any concrete plan – the only thing we were all going on was nonsense from the media surmising things out of thin air.

        • November 15, 2012 at 8:32 pm

          Exactly, theo. He’s done a remarkable job for the citizens of MA and he has a family. Not everyone can sustain life-long public service. He has never been ambiguous about his support of the President. We should honor all he has contributed and I’m sure that is what the President and First Lady did when they hosted them for a private dinner last Friday night.

      Did anyone know about Sonia Sotomayor before President Obama brought her to the spotlight? We just don’t know whether President Obama has a “binder full” of very qualified people that he’s considering. All we have is a political witch hunt and media speculation around Ambassador Susan Rice and Senator Kerry. There could be a ton of people just perfect for the roles that President Obama has to fill – the media is not privy to that planning, and neither are the GOP.

    http://www.politicususa.com/post-election-romney-bain-face-federal-corruption-perjury-hearing.html

    t is absolutely true that Romney was looking forward to cutting his own tax liability to zero, privatizing the federal government, handing the Social Security Trust to Wall Street, and waging perpetual war, but with a plethora of investigations and allegations of corruption into his finances on the horizon, appointing a friendly Attorney General was certainly a primary reason for seeking the presidency. To date, Romney’s legal troubles include fallacious FEC and SEC disclosures, an investigation into him and his son’s connection to an $8.5 billion Ponzi scheme, and concealing over $15 million from the auto-bailout, and now his surrogate’s malfeasance and perjury in the eToys bankruptcy case.

    Exactly ten days ago, this column reported on a Delaware bankruptcy court’s failure to enter an Emergency Motion into the public docket that included Bain Capital and Romney operative’s perjury and corruption in the eToys bankruptcy case. At the time it appeared the judge was protecting Romney and Bain Capital by suppressing the Motion in expectation he would win the election and have the Motion tossed out of court leading to the question; “is Romney’s main impetus for seeking the White House to appoint an Attorney General who will guarantee that all charges against him will go away?” Well now that he lost the election, it appears the allegation had merit because on November 7, the day after his crushing defeat, the Delaware bankruptcy court judge entered the motion into the public docket and scheduled a hearing for December 4, 2012; all on the same day.

    Could be that karma thing again:)

    I actually took a mental health day today and went to an arts and craft fair with my good friend. I make it a rule every Christmas to either buy all of my gifts from actual people: artists at art fairs, mom-and-pop businesses, or make my gifts. For some reason I was all distracted and obsessed with the election and stuff and didn’t get to many fairs this summer to start my Christmas shopping, so it was great going today – meeting real people trying to make a living selling something they have created with their own passion and their own hands. A lot of recycled materials showing up, by the way.

    Anyway, to make a long story long, I’ve been out of touch. Any word on the meeting yesterday between PBO and the business leaders?

        I am coming here late and I am sure you’ve already gone to bed. Any way, I hope your ankle is a little bit better today and you are taking good care of yourself. From all the incredible posts you posted today you must have a high degree of pain toleration. I also wanted to thank you and your fellow twitter warriors (Edwina, Bobfr, Dudette, Tally, UT, AMK, and others) for keeping up the fight against these despicable Republicans like John McCain.

      • November 15, 2012 at 9:22 pm

        And his staff should be fired for allowing him to be uninformed to the point he would claim that tired LIE that FoxFucks™ keeps spewing.

        The TEAGOP are making a laughing stock of our government, and I’m FUCKING SICK OF IT.

          That table shows only the raw votes for the PBO and the loser. It doesn’t show the total of other whackos like what’shisname libertarian and the other lefty lunatic loser what’shername. That could account for it.

    Hello TOD family,
    Like many of you I participated in the phone call with President Obama on Tuesday, and yesterday I joined another phone call with Jon Carson from the Office of Public Engagement. Both left me with a stronger then ever resolve to stand with this President and do more to support his vision for the future. It is clear that he needs us to make our voices heard. Our help is needed immediately in dealing with the tax issue, specifically the need for Congress to make the middle class tax cuts permanent before the end of the year. Detailed information is available on whitehouse.gov as well as an opportunity to add our voices and tell Congress to act now. Our twitter experts can push this issue as well – it should get more attention than the Republican distraction machine. We need to make sure that President Obama’s plan will prevail. So I am asking everyone to please join in and keep up the pressure. Already there are signs that some Republicans are listening. If we win this first battle, it will be much easier for the President to push through the rest of his agenda.

    good evening, I so love retweeting from this wonderful home. as a almost 73 year old person, I learned how to retweet because of Bob’s wonderful tweets. Perhaps one of the really smart ppl here could put info up on how to set up a tweet account. It would help in getting
    info out to the masses. As we work thru the next few years, I think the more we can spread the message the better we will do in helping the President get programs info out. Love all of youas a dear family.

    • November 15, 2012 at 10:38 pm

      Hi Inga,

      Thank you!
      And, it’s just a couple of steps to create a Twitter account.
      Go to http://www.twitter.com
      Under ‘New to Twitter Sign Up’
      Enter a name – it can be anything you want to use
      Enter a valid email address
      Enter a password that you create
      Click ‘Sign Up’

      You will then be asked to add some folk that you want to follow and you can use Chips ‘TOD on Twitter’ http://theobamadiary.com/team-up-on-twitter/ to find plenty of folk to enter as they typically have you enter 5, then 5 more, then another 5.

      With that you will have an account and a profile page on which you can decide to enter an image for your icon/avatar and enter other info. You can certainly ask folk here for help at that stage if you have any questions.

      Let us all know your twitter @name so we can all follow you. And, just Tweet away!!!

      #FORWARD

        thanks Bob, Yes I kind of did a twitter account setup on my own when I started seeing all of ur great tweets. Hopefully others, who have not taken advantage of this great way to get the message out will start a tweeter acct. I had planned to close mine after the election, and with what we have yet to do, will continue to spread our message far and wide. Hopefully ur easy to follow info will get others to take the leap. Didn’t WA do well in the election? well except on my side of the state! again tvm
