      They know he won’t be the puppet of Wall Street. The republicans are not happy either about Jack Lew’s nomination. Not surprising…

      Fascinating and concerning at the same time to see how the Big Money Boys and the Big Lobbies are revealing themselves by openly screaming about Chuck Hagel and Jack Lew. They KNOW that President Obama means business and wants to do something against the entrenched powers that have controlled Washington for too long.

      I just wish “the left” would see the light: President Obama is the real deal. Oh… he can make compromises when he doesn’t have the choice, but make no mistake: he is the most progressive, the most courageous, the most determined, the most effective president America has had in a long time. THAT, more than his race IMO, is why he faces so much resistance and resentment.

    When POTUS was introducing Jack, I like the way he picked up on VPOTUS’ point that a budget is the reflection of your values. Loved the “no peacocks, no jerks, no whiners” as a rule for Washington. How gracious and humble was Tim! And Jack was funny and personable.

I sent him a email, I hope meta doesn’t mind me using her comment she made where she said what is embarrassing is being brought up on charges by the ethics committee, and censured on the House floor. I told Mr. Rangel that.

    Rep. Becerra to Obama, Democratic leaders: Don’t mess with Social Security

    Mike Lillis – 01/10/13 02:34 PM ET
    Obama and top Democrats have signaled a willingness to reduce Social Security benefits over the long term.…

    -:
    The message is not to the Republicans, who caused all of this Debt, nope…, it’s directed toward the President.
    I swear, both Parties elected officials hate the office of the President and by Proxy PBO.

    [From Benen, love the last line below]:

    That said, it’s worth considering why, exactly, the GOP has come to dislike Lew so much that some Senate Republicans started announcing their opposition to his nomination before he was even introduced.

    The answer, it appears, is that GOP leaders see him as too competent and knowledgeable, which has gotten in the way of Republican plans.

    The New York Times had a fascinating piece last year on the 2011 debt-ceiling crisis negotiations, and House Speaker John Boehner’s frustrations that Lew had a “detailed knowledge of the budget” that “outpaced anyone else’s in the room.” It got to the point that Boehner kept trying to get Lew out of the room, in the hopes that it’d be easier to strike a GOP-friendly deal.

    /SNIP/

    So, Republicans hate Lew the same way a con man hates the guy who knows how a con works.

      One of my phantasms has always been to see a public debate between Jack Lew and Paul Ryan. Oh boy what a pleasure it would be to see Mr. Lew put an end to the inflated reputation of Ryan as a budget wonk. How satisfying would it be to see Ryan’s distorted math be debunked once and for all !

      I wish we will see Jack Lew on tv. He is “low key” but less shy than Mr. Geithner. He comes off as extremely knowledgeable and honest. Maybe he can win some political points for the president during the acrimonious debate we’ll have to endure in the next few weeks.

    good read on aipac and hagel’s appointment, from al jazeera site:

    ‘American Jews will not tolerate the suggestion that they are anything but good Americans. Fighting a president over a national security issue is simply not sustainable.

    Although a president’s choice for Secretary of Defence is not in really a national security issue, it does get to the question of an American president and his security prerogatives. After all, the Department of Defence personifies US national security. Once President Obama made clear that he would nominate Hagel, the game was over.
    ~
    Frankly, I am surprised that the president went ahead over the lobby’s opposition. I am well-known for my belief that it could not be beaten, although I have always offered the caveat that it would be if a president fought back hard.
    ~
    The lobby will not be able to block a president determined to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on terms fair to both sides. It is like the father of modern Zionism, Theodor Herzl, said: “If you will it, it is no dream.” ‘

        January 10, 2013 at 4:47 pm

        Well, Sessions is getting help from emoprogs in the Senate and Senate wannabes like Barney Frank. Without weighing judiciously the man’s record. All I can find is some knee-jerk response that for a couple of years he worked on Wall St. The rest of his career has been in public service, for God’s sake. He drew a hard line against Medicaid cuts in the 2011 deal. Budget issues Clinton gets credit for, and Lew was right there.

        Repubs hate him because he’s all math-y and truth-y and serious and stuff.

        I don’t understand when everyone lost the ability to weigh things carefully. I have some serious questions about some of Geithner’s choices, but he shepherded us through what could have been global collapse, working against a batshit crazy Congress. I don’t love the guy (and will get shrieks even here for saying so), but he did a very decent job under very bad circumstances. I believe the banks and Wall St. could have paid a higher price under his leadership, and they didn’t. Is he my progressive Treasury Secretary dream? Dreams are just that. Progress and competence and seriousness balance the scale strongly in Geithner’s favor and he was a good choice.

        But by all means, because Lew spent five minutes working on Wall St., let’s make it hard to get him confirmed. Because, Barney Frank and Bernie Sanders, you’re gonna get Paul Krugman confirmed instead?

        There is no common sense anymore. Anywhere!

I think that I will write that line about “no peacocks, no jerks, no whiners” on my bulletin board. It should also be emblazoned on the walls of congress and in any room where negotiations are going on.

        “the naysayers added their negativity to the site”. All the more reason for us to contribute with diligence often. We can’t be the silent majority. We have to have PBO’s back out loud, where it matters, not just by reinforcing each other’s views here. I try to send something to somebody every day. Today Andrea Mitchell felt my wrath. Then PBO felt my support.

                ‘They need to know there are more supporters of the president than of them.’

                I wholeheartedly agree, but while I am convinced that there are more of us (reference the election results), I am not yet convinced that we are energized enough, when it is not specifically a matter of voting, to let our voices be heard positively. It’s so much ‘easier’ to criticize than to praise in our culture. In fact, we accept criticism with greater ‘grace’ face than we do praise. It would be nice, I’m thinking to start nurturing that aspect of our participation. I noticed here that JackieG, Linda from WiW, and a couple of others are on track for this by encouraging the Action initiative. We really should expend more energy on this. [I hold back pushing certain things due to my ‘far-inner’ status and I hesitate to sign petitions to nudge the WH etc. because I am very conscious of my non-native status.

    My D-i-L posted this on facebook:

    “So I’m at Wal-Mart buying a bag of dog food for my dog. While in the check-out line, a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Why else would I be buying dog food, RIGHT??? So on impulse I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, I was starting the Dog food Diet again, and that I probably shouldn’t because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in intensive
    care with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms. I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and all you do is load your pockets with food Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle’s butt and a car hit me. I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. Better watch what you ask me and be prepared for my answer. I have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say. Now that you’ve read this I have to confess, I copied it. Now copy and share. Make someone else laugh”

      LOL! I took my grandson in for one of his baby exams. We were in the doctor’s examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the
      doctor to arrive. He examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-feed or bottle-fed.
      ‘Breast-fed,’ I said..

      ‘Well, strip down to your waist,’ the doctor ordered.

      I did. He pinched my nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and detailed examination.

      He motioned me to get dressed, and said, ‘ No wonder this baby is underweight. You don’t have any milk.’

      ‘I know, I said, ‘I’m his Grandma’,
      But I’m glad I came.”

    Daily chuckle:

    Little Bruce and Margaret are only 10 years old, but they know they are in love.

    One day they decide that they want to get married, so Bruce goes to Margaret’s father to ask him for her hand.

    Bruce bravely walks up to him and says, “Mr. Smith, me and Margaret are in love and I want to ask you for her hand in marriage.”

    Thinking that this was just the cutest thing,Mr. Smith replies,”Well Bruce, you are only 10.. Where will you two live?”

    Without even taking a moment to think about it, Bruce replies,”In Margaret’s room. It’s bigger than mine and we can both fit there nicely.”

    Still thinking this is just adorable,

    Mr. Smith says with a huge grin, “Okay, then how will you live? You’re not old enough to get a job. You’ll need to support Margaret.”

    Again, Bruce instantly replies, “Our allowance, Margaret makes five bucks a week and I make 10 bucks a week. That’s about 60 bucks a month, so that should do us just fine.”

    Mr. Smith is impressed Bruce has put so much thought into this.

    “Well Bruce, it seems like you have everything figured out.

    I just have one more question. What will you do if the two of you should have little children of your own?”

    Bruce just shrugs his shoulders and says,

    “Well, we’ve been lucky so far.”

    Mr. Smith no longer thinks this little s*#t is adorable.

    The backlash against the pastor giving the inaugural benediction paid off……he stepped out, and the committee accepted that according to reports. That took a day.
    I read today that there is a committee which plans the inauguration ceremony, it is not the president alone, and Eric Cantor is on the committee. The president gets some prerogatives, but there is other input too. So…..I’m assuming that the choice of this man was from someone on the far right on the committee who wanted to make the president look bad. I believe the president has other things on his mind right now. He undoubtedly had some input and choices, but the committee actually plans the inaugural.

    NRA accuses White House of ‘attack’ on 2nd Amendment rights

    The lobby group’s statement likely signals it will oppose any legislative attempt to change federal gun laws.…

    Just heard on Rev Al by Ray Nutter, Mayor of Philadelphia: “NRA=Not Really Astute.” Now run and tell that. Pretty soon it’s gonna be safer to live in Syria than the US.

    Even if you choose not to be involved, [ in the inauguration] don’t be ungrateful.” that’s the way Rev. Al ended his show tonight, referring to how President Obama is paying his respects to President Lincoln and Dr. King by using their personal bibles during the inauguration.
    He was talking about how people of all races and creeds, men and women have sacrificed and died so that we all can be free.

    He was calling to all Americans to at least, for once be just a tad decent, please.
