Richard Trumka: "Working men & women will be well served by Pres. Obama’s choice of Tom Perez to lead Dept of Labor" aflcio.org/Press-Room/Pre…— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) March 19, 2013
Oh boy. If the Labor guys like this man the rwnj’s are having fits.
Ha, my thoughts too Yardarm …. and I do love the idea of the RWNJs losing it, yet again. Delicious!
Amen sis. Amen!
Thomas Perez’s CV is pretty impressive. Great fighter for the everyday man and woman. Wonderful choice by Pres. Obama.
p.s. It’s always a good day when RWNJ’s lose their mind.
Yes indeed! It’s quite obvious that the rwnj’s can’t stand competent people being nominated by President Obama.
Hi Nath! How have you been? I notice we’ve been playing invisible tag.
HI VC, I ve been fine! Thanks for asking. I usually work late and being on the West coast I come here late.Please forgive me If I missed your greetings or your response to my comments. Today I worked half a day so I was able to catch some of the early threads. Though I am always late posting, for the record, I try to share my two cents on topics that I have an idea about. For the most part, I just love reading comments. I especially love the humor and the music shared by TOD members.
Good Evening Friends:-)
(((((((((((((CHIPS)))))))))))) Welcome back dear one:-) Missed you much…..but thankfully you do have some great folks in your circle, we are grateful for all that chipped in – so madame Chips could get much needed vacation. AMK, UTA, LL, LP what a great bunch you all are:-)
so lucky to have you here!
Hellooooooooo Kasai, the Fab Four are the Fabbest Four on Planet Earth – love them! Hope’s all good with you Kasai.
It is no surprise that you have attracted such fine, committed participants in TOD, Chips. You inspire all of us. Thank you.
I’m not going to fight with you Bob, but you’re wrong – YOU inspire me!
Way too kind, friend thank you
Let me add my voice to this as well…You do inspire…Bob
All is good..the minute I come here You know Media had my blood pressure running high last night with all that crap with History channel…I am good now:-) Thank for this beautiful oasis, where I can just be free to be me.
LOL! Kasai, I do remember last night you had just about had it up to here with the entire media Many of us were in the same boat as you! LOL! Glad that all is well now.
LOL! I am good Madam Chips is back…Life is good:-)
Thanks so much for your R/T and support HopeFruit:-)
Oh kasai – ain’t that the truth – I have been so negative for a couple of days – and here I am late for the evening thread & loving what Chips has brought us – I just love Bo & those eggs – think I’ll buy some for the grandbabe for easter next year – I have left it a little late to have them for this year (and babe is a little young).
Lesson learned: When you’re feeling down> Come to TOD..she’ will have you LOL ..it does our heart good:-)
You know Kasai, I read a little bit about that today and then clicked away, I couldn’t take it, this stuff is just so infuriating and depressing. I hope they are flooded – literally – with complaints.
Congrats Allison! Carol photo-finish…… Evening Chipsticks!!! I sent a you a email a few hours ago, whenever you got some free time…….
Good evening! I’ve been reading through the RNC’s … plan … and it’s well … umm… long. I’ll give it that.
It sounds like a cure for insomnia, Norbrook. I salute your courage reading it!
LOL!! you crack me up!
Well, when my eyes aren’t glazing, they’re wide with disbelief. It’s not what they’re about. The problem is .. republicans.
I love this line Norbrook:
“But in looking through it, I see a major problem: The people who are currently holding office and running the party.”
Apart from that…… !
Great post Norbrook, you saved me the misery of having to wade through too much of their madness. Will include an extract and link in Rise and Shine, thanks a million.
I can summarize quickly: “Do what Obama did. Just without changing all the policies that keep losing elections.”
Looking forward to read your take on it. From the bits and pieces I’ve read, it looks like the RNC’s plan is all about selling the GOP brand to people who don’t pay attention to the real GOP agenda..
Well I am sorry I jumped the gun before I read your post. As always you went to the heart of the matter: “Forget trying to persuade everyone else, the biggest problem the Republican Party has is: Republicans.”
Important to know how our brave men in uniform are being affected by the GOP intransigence……first it was TA assistance, now…

Dear Ms Chips Chica,
How are you? I trust you saw my previous welcome home greetings/gripes? Are you now back in the swing of things? Inquiring mind wants to know in particular if you remember how to ..ahem…./hand over mouth; speaking quickly yet very, very softly/ …..bake. This is just a personal heads-up that this Friday will be a special Friday where your culinary skills may have to be /smallest font =/ resorted to. Better start re- locating your cook books etc.
ps: For other members of the TOD family, this gentle reminder will give you time to plan for Friday. Please do remember that I’m not overly fond of chocolate especially if it has no nuts, nor do I think fresh flowers are practical since they die too soon. A ticket to some place I’ve never been might not come amiss (no, amk, I don’t mean to he+double l) particularly if you send someone along to take care of the luggage etc.
VC! Friday!!! As if I wasn’t prepared Ingredients already purchased, the baking has begun:
Good lord, you never cleaned up from last year!!!!! Well, you have a few days before Friday, though I’m not sure I’ll feel like having cake this year. I’ll get back to ya, Charlie……I mean Chips.
Hello vc! PBO just sent a txt saying that you and Chips need to clean this up ASAP. A dirty kitchen keeps him up at night and gets his hair gray.
Nothing to do with me, Hf /striving for angelic/ I’ll be the guest of honour so do pass that note on to Chips and her team. You can even channel a bit of Boehner and tell them how to go about getting started.
Oh ye of little faith. In, eh, Charlie you must trust!
Chips hold on…what kind of bakery is this?
Hopefruit, that is the kitchen of one with a creative culinary mind, but who fails to clean as they go. But the cake will be splendiferous – trust me.
I still have nightmares of the fish pie… I hope VC has her antacids at the ready – my apologies to Chips – but I have to be kind to my travelling buddy, VC…
Are you sure this ain’t the aftermath of a rwnj ‘potluck’ dinner.
Well, that’s the most hurtful thing anyone has ever said about my kitchen-organizational skills. Yardarm? What’s the name of that ship punishment place again? Get in there – right now.
Ha! I’ll go to the ‘brig’ right after the galley is cleaned and a bull grows some feathers!
Ah, brig, that’s the place.
In the brig – now.
Yah! You syill got a years worth of work in the galley. Good luck.
Make sure there’s nothing alive or growing in that mess.
Oi! I’m alive and growing in that mess!!!
LOL!!!! I see my cupcakes still backing from 5yrs ago…I tell ya…that some super duper backing right there..LMAO!!!!!
“I see my cupcakes still baking from 5yrs ago”
Do you think I should take them out of the oven now??
No!!! take your time….Maybe by 2017..should be done by then..:-)
You could be right Kasai, I just took out one from the oven and it didn’t seem quite ready:
Oh! My Lord….Girl you’re too much…LOL!!!!! by the time PBO leaves office I should have something to hang on to a “Cup Cake”
The cupcakes should be done by then Kasai, but I’ll test them again nearer the time – you can never be too careful.
Dialing 9-1-1 … this is way to big a biohazard than the public health officials can handle alone
^^too^^ not ‘to’ …. it was that disturbing of an image
‘it was that disturbing of an image’
Tell me about it, Bob! Here I was thinking that since she was going away for a bit Chips would have made sure the kitchen was clean, the fridge emptied etc. etc. BEFORE leaving. I figured this would have been the safest time to give her another chance to create a masterpiece because she would be starting from scratch.
ps: Let me know if the PH officials close down the kitchen.That way Chips may have to call on the WH kitchen to help her save face on Friday.
Ooooh, you and your conspiratorial efforts to get Sam Kass to bake your cake, out of sheer shameful lust:
Although, he is…. no, won’t go there.
Caught again! Can’t put anything over on you! Rats!
You are soooooooo much fun, VC!!!!
“…. Chips may have to call on the WH kitchen to help her save face on Friday.” She’s so connected, she probably has their number on speed dial
TY, B! I can’t wait to see what you get me. You don’t need to wrap it, okay? Let’s do our bit to help save the environment and my clumsy fingers.
Don’t worry Chips I got your back………..
may still need re-enforcements
My hero!!!!! I feel safe!! Did you get my email LP?
From around lunch time, I did. Thank you! I replied around 5ish…..when you get a minute. Just glad along w/ everyone else that you are putting smiles on peoples faces, by being around again……..
Ah, thank you LP ….. now you know how often I check my blog email Thanks a million, will reply in the morning. Still can’t thank you enough for everything, you’re a treasure.
The pleasure is all mine…
Oh my gosh, I’m stepping away……except for the Sam Kass moments, of course. He does know how to cook, indeed.
Wait a minute there, Ms Meta! Forget about Sam Kass (I have first claim..for Friday) Aren’t you responsible for the other desserts? Just Prepare them somewhere else, please. Thanks
Okay, THIS is a serious cake:

Not only will Mr Perez be a fine Labor Secretary, any, I mean any, hope the RNC had of ‘rebranding’ has already been demolished by the xenophobic, racist venom being spewed by their leaders and base.
Maybe I’m wrong, or maybe I didn’t pay that much attention to it, but i don’t seem to recall Democrats filibustering or holding up every Bush nomination.
Annie, you don’t remember it because this has NEVER happened before. I mean, even McGrumpy, who said he would have Chuck Hagel in his cabinet (if, thank God it didn’t happen, he were elected POTUS).McGrumpy voted against Chuck Hagel as Pres Obama’s nominee for Dept of Defense.
If President Obama told them to breathe, they would vote to hold their breath.
If voters actually did not vote against their own interests…….pipe dream I know, if they only really knew what congress does.

Wow,Bob, it’s hard to believe that’s a Republican platform. What a a horrific deterioration of a once decent political party. It it weren’t such an utterly destructive force, you could almost pity the GOP for losing it’s way so miserably.
#5 and #11 are the ones that got me. It’s hard to believe that the GOP ever supported unions or equal pay for women and in the 1950s, too! Many modern conservatives reminisce about the ’50s constantly (including those weren’t born yet). However, it was always clear that the 1950s they yearned for never existed. This old party platform confirms this even further.
Today’s GOP is the complete opposite of all of this.

Late to the evening thread – chores – how dare they take me from TOD – loving all the pictures, videos and your presence Ms Chips – sun is shining, birds are singing – my world is good today – excepting that I am needing to do some household chores.
Oooooooh chores, 99ts …. I just spotted a big spidery webby thing in my officey room ….. the time may have come to do some spring-cleaning
Um – I thought you had a kitchen to attend to before Friday – then again – there are 4 blog lieutenants who have some spare time – they can probably clean up the kitchen bless you – it is just lovely to have you back

The more I get to know about the despicable GOP and the industries that they promote and support, the worse it gets:
“In the fall of 2007, Peabody Energy Corp. (BTU), the coal-mining giant, spun off all its unionized mines into a new company, Patriot Coal Corp. (PCXCQ) In the process, it got rid of the promises it had made over generations to coal miners and their families.”

And in response to 99ts, this is another example where the plutocrat Rs hoodwink their less educated base by playing to their fears of “a black man in the White House.” Unfortunately they don’t realize they’ve been betrayed until its too late.
They always think – it won’t happen to me – and then it does. This type of thing has also happened in my world – we now have laws where employee “entitlements” – pay, vacation pay – take precedence over other debtors – but that doesn’t extend to retirees.
Heh, they got what they voted for. repeatedly.

Will keep pressing for accountability before a court of law because though Nixon, Reagan and many of their hit men are dead, they and those still alive should all be thoroughly stripped of any respect and, if alive, prosecuted. Their profound immorality and harm to humanity will only continue to be expanded, as we know GWB/Cheney and their fellow #NEOCONSTERS did by launching an illegal war on Iraq, until We the People make it impossible for crimes against humanity be committed in our name.

Rachel Maddow spotlighted this treason of Nixon’s tonight on her show…..first segment. I well remember that election. It was two months before my son was born. Nixon was even worse than we have learned previously. Totally evil!
She also is not letting the lied-into Iraq War die! That was the second segment. “Hubris” will be on again this Friday night, 9:00 p.m. Eastern time.
Maybe I will get the chance to see it this time. I hope.
thanks for the heads-up. when she’s good, she’s very good, but when she’s bad…..ugh.
Carolyn, the election of 1968 was the first time I was old enough to vote. I had supported, in San Antonio Texas no less, RFKJr. When he was assassinated, it was obvious to all of us that Nixon had to be defeated. We had no idea the depth of criminality he was already involved regarding Vietnam but we knew he was evil to the core and the war would not end if he was elected. Tragically, he was and 27000+ US troops, countless Vietnamese, Cambodians, Thais, and others died needless deaths.
As unfathomably horrible all of that was, the fact that Nixon was not held accountable for his real crimes only enabled the emergence of all the evil the Reagan Administration spawned and those spawn were at the core of the vast damage to America and the world that the administration of George W Bush accomplished.
This legacy of lawlessness, avarice and mass murder that defines the Nixon-Reagan-GWB axis must be held accountable. Until it is, America is barely a shadow of what it could be for all humanity and for future generations of Americans.

Retweeted by LOLGOP
waiting to see the outreach
GOP Outreach: A History
Reeling from back-to-back presidential losses and struggling to cope with the country’s changing racial and ethnic makeup, the Republican National Committee plans to spend $10 million this year to send hundreds of party workers into Hispanic, black and Asian communities to promote its brand among voters who overwhelmingly supported Democrats in 2012.
As noted earlier, RNC has made repeatedly made similar efforts for more than thirty years.
LH, as laughable as these repeated GOP efforts at Latino outreach have been, we can’t become complacent about the Latino vote. It’s going to take relentless efforts on all of our parts to cement good relationships with Latino communities. There are lots of needs that many communities have–good places to go for information and help with documents, applications and other red tape; easy access to English lessons at low cost; dependable local media that cover Latino issues and news. We can’t just continue to go ask for votes at election time without putting in the effort to understand Latino concerns throughout the year. This year is a special challenge. Off year elections have notoriously low Latino turnout, yet it’s the local offices that make such a difference in people’s lives. Helping Latino voters to see regular voting as a way to make things better for themselves is an important effort we have to keep working at.
Just reading this – it seems someone at the RNC has plagiarism issues
“On January 14, 2000, Mary Anne Ostrom wrote in The San Jose Mercury News:
Saying they want to bring “two-party democracy” to the Latino community, Republican leaders at their winter meeting in San Jose on Thursday announced a $10 million nationwide ad campaign to boost the GOP’s image with the fast-growing, but largely Democratic, electorate.”
They didn’t even change the money amount!!

Not til tomorrow evening, Prettyfoot:
Tuesday: In the morning, the President will meet Taoiseach Enda Kenny of Ireland in the Oval Office, and subsequently he will attend the traditional St Patrick’s Day lunch at the U.S. Capitol. During the day, the president will also greet First Minister Peter Robinson and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness of Northern Ireland at the White House.
In the evening, the President and first lady will host a reception to celebrate their fifth St Patrick’s Day at the White House.
Later in the evening, the President will depart for Israel.

carolyn, their problem is they know that people do like POTUS and FLOTUS. That is why they try everything to attack them. I mean people with some dam sense, the right wing haters ain’t got any dam sense, they are rule by HATE.
This is true – despite the GOP and their friends the media trying to spread the hate – people like/love POTUS and FLOTUS. One could be quite cheesy and say “love conquers all”
the extreme right doesn’t seem to be able to know when to fold versus when to make noise.
even if a party was not sincere about its intended “outreach to minorities”, for the sake of public appearance that party would not attack a nominee who happens to be from a minority group – especilly on its first day of official outreach.
a slightly bright party would at least pretend to postpone insults especially when by all accounts this nominee is very highly regarded by all minority groups the party hopes to recruit.

Police in the Dominican Republic say they have determined that three women who said they had sex with Sen. Robert Menendez (R-NJ) for money were in fact paid to make false claims by an attorney in the Caribbean country, the AP reports.
A belated thank you for the RayBans in “Rise and Shine”. Lordy!!
‘ HONOLULU (AP) – A defense contractor for the U.S. Pacific Command is being charged with giving national security secrets to a 27-year-old Chinese student he was romantically involved with.
A criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Honolulu says 59-year-old Benjamin Pierce Bishop sent the woman an email in last May with information on existing war plans, nuclear weapons and U.S. relations with international partners. ‘
I swear I wanna know just what special “stuff” these women have who can induce a man to do such colossally stupid, treasonous crap like that. It can’t be just the plain old regular kind. Are mean really that dumb. [Don't answer that; I know the answer.] It just can’t be! It’s one thing to ditch work to get some trim (ala Mark Sanford), but how does one get all the way to: “Oh darling, I love you so much — let me prove it to you. Here, take these war plans and diagrams of nuclear weapons.” WTF?!!
Seriously, though, guys really do stupid stuff! I have never, ever, ever — met, dated, slept with, lusted after a guy that was so damn good that I’d go to jail or die for; yet, you read of guys doing this stuff on the regular. Small brain…
Seriously. Small brain indeed.
[Why the hell don't women rule the world?]
They do……we just let them think they do(shhh….)
Correction… “We” do!
wow, someone again compromised the trust place in them by their nation in order to win personal favors
G’nite folks! Sleep tite. Don’t let CNN, Mark Knoller OR the History Channel bite.
g’nite hopefruit – sleep well

I know, right? We need a color-coded Media Stupidity Scale, similar to the Shrub’s terrorist threat level scale.

Defending the bush administration on the Iraq war is pathetic.
Watch, Msnbc will now stick up for Bush and his policies.
MARK SANFORD HAS ETHICS. We just aren't suppose to talk about them. #MorningJoe http://t.co/JyHlDTMAI5— Dr. Tom Martin Ph.D. (@DrTomMartinPhD) March 19, 2013
Sanford also called on President Clinton to resign for getting a bj.
Didn’t know that. So he’s an asshole AND a hypocrit!
As did John Ensign also.

Hi Dudette – you’re on a roll this day – great tweets – I can’t believe Sandford is trying a comeback – these people so keen on free enterprise – just want to live on the government – strange that is.
Hiya 99ts! Thanks!
I can’t believe people see Sanford as a serious candidate. Then again, it’s South Carolina — so never mind.
Totally the Kenyan socialist’s fault!
