Back in a bit, chat on.

Touching and very emotional!
Touching and emotional!
As an adoption counselor working in the foster care system, I am sooooo proud of this young man. He is the one that was removed and put in custody of grandma and later into care, right?
yep thats him
Yep. Wonderful triumphant story.
This young man must have been very fortunate in his foster placement. I hope those foster parents are at Morehouse today, cheering him on. They did a great job!
Video snip (bringing over from the last thread):
Obama jokes about graduating and Michelle Obama’s hair
President Obama got big laughs at Morehouse College’s rainy commencement ceremony in Atlanta. He said he would join the graduates in the rain if he could, but first lady Michelle Obama would not. He also joked about graduating and event security.

Obama Exhorts Good Deeds by Morehouse Graduates
President Barack Obama told graduates of Morehouse College Sunday to take the power of their example _ as black men graduating from college _ and use it to improve people’s lives. (May 19)
Thank you Chipsticks!!!
ALL of my tweets to the MSM and to the GOP gets blocked.
What did they do flag me or something?
At any rate, strange how they work in tandem!
Badge of Honor, baby!
Heck yeah! They can’t handle the TRUTH!!
Wear It with Pride, Jovie…..
Jovie, if you go down your TL, you should be able to see your tweets. Sometimes Twitter doesn’t show certain tweets from the other person’s TL – I’m not sure why, but you can see them all in your own TL.
But not in there certain tweets. I refresh the page and poof gone.
Mention what you would tweet and I’ll tweet it to them. I am not good at writing the words but I am a great retweeter.
It doesn’t look like they are blocked since they are all in your timeline. https://twitter.com/Jovie141 They don’t show up in the MSM or GOP TLs unless they in fact retweet or reply to your tweets.
I’ve seen tweets from MSM where they ridicule tweeters with an egg avatar, so maybe that’s why they have reacted this way.
I think you’re an Apple man, so don’t know the steps for those products, but on a PC, you could save a favorite photo from the Dept. of the Interior to your PC, then go to “settings” on Twitter and upload that photo as your Twitter avatar.
Or whatever pic floats your boat. You may have better luck with these jackals in the future.

Don’t hate the repeats — just rejoice and remember!
More pictures from Morehouse
Alumni President said this at the end (as he inducted new graduates into the Alumni association):
Rain don’t stop The House
Thunder don’t stop The House
President Obama rocked The House
But nobody stops The House!

Great morning! Off to check out a Water Safety event that my daughter helped put together where she works:) She specifically asked if I would like to come, so I’m going to support her:) Check back later…
I tweeted this to AP-
@AP Look up national security act?— Apollo1312 (@Jovie141) May 19, 2013
I refreshed the tweet and not there
If you are blocked, when you try to tweet that person, your tweets don’t just disappear, twitter tells you you’re blocked. So there’s no guessing about who is blocking you.
@AP You enabled a traitor to compromise our National Security & you did so in a way that was meant to undermine the President. cc @PressSec— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) May 19, 2013

Much as we all dislike Terry McCauliffe, we can’t let Virginia go to a far right radical governor and Lt. governor. Cuccinelli is a Tea Party candidate par excellence and this Lt. gov. pick is off the charts. They both need to go down in defeat. Virginia has to go blue in 2013 (they’re in off year cycles) and 2016.
The fool probably doesn’t even know what Islam is all about!
Wow these are powerful images.

Excellent tweet, LP. Worth featuring the Jay Rosen analysis in a future TOD thread, for sure!!
Thanks Bobfr…will do! His post is especially relevant b/c of who he is…for people who don’t know, he teaches journalism at NYU, and is a media critic that the industry pays attention to, unlike Howard Kurtz.
p.s. had you in my head when tweeting #jonkarl instead of @jonkarl……read someone yesterday had their account suspended b/c a verified account reported them….they found out who reported them it, was JON KARL!!! LOL….

Jon Karl thinks people are dumb.
In case you missed it, I sincerely regret the error I made describing an email from Ben Rhodes. 1/2— Jonathan Karl (@jonkarl) May 19, 2013
I should have stated, as I did elsewhere, the reporting was based on a summary provided by a source. I apologize for the mistake. 2/2— Jonathan Karl (@jonkarl) May 19, 2013
@JonKarl said "I obtained emails." Not an error. You LIED. You and @ABC have no credibility twitter.com/jonkarl/status… twitter.com/jonkarl/status…— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) May 19, 2013
Well done, UT!
Exactly @NerdyWonka #JonKarl & #ABC cannot escape @jayrosen_nyu's cogent assessment of their dishonesty twitter.com/jayrosen_nyu/s… cc @PressSec— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) May 19, 2013
Rachel Maddow’s report (that Chips tweeted and posted on yesterday’s R&S made it sound like the GOP leaker made those doctored emails widely available to the MSM, but that ABC/Jon Karl was the only organization that bit this bait.
Probably have this all wrong, but that’s what it sounded like to me (about midway through Maddow’s segment).
Somebody mentioned ABC’s history of hiring conservative moles (Jake Tapper, John Stossel, etc.) but forgot to include the odious Mark “Dick” Halperin.
Please let Jonathan Karl know that until he admits the error of his actions and apologizes to PBO and the public, nothing he reports can be believed and he is a liability to ABC and his profession .
I’ve heard republican ‘apologies’. They mean nothing. He needs to go!
Perfectly stated, NW.
Never believe any news @ABC tweets, prints, or says. If their reporter can LIE about Benghazi and Pres. Obama, they can lie about anything.— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) May 19, 2013

Shame on @BenSherwoodABC & @ABC for Jon Karl's LIES about Benghazi. They have no credibility twitter.com/jonkarl/status… twitter.com/jonkarl/status…— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) May 19, 2013
UTA, thank you for tweeting to Jon Karl’s boss.
Crickets on his timeline about Karl since his lies were uncovered. He’s now tweeting about the Powerball winner, just like you’d expect an executive under duress to do.
Also, forgot about that idiot Rick Klein, who really is dumber than a tree stump.
Wonder if Jon Karl’s source and AP’s source are one in the same?….just asking
Certainly possible. Many of us are wondering about Rep Pete King or/and his staffers ….
Joy Reid has tweeted Tom Coburn asking him about his little tease stmt about State Dept trouble the day before liar Jonathan Karl’s breaking news. Details here. http://blog.reidreport.com/2013/05/benghazi-emails-whodunit/
@TheReidReport Excellent analysis blog.reidreport.com/2013/05/bengha… Has @TomCoburn responded to any of your questions? TY. cc @Pfeiffer44— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) May 19, 2013
Nice of her to respond
@Our4thEstate @Pfeiffer44 not yet. But would love to hear from him —> @TomCoburn #whodupedjonkarl?— Joy Reid (@TheReidReport) May 19, 2013
She is a classy lady in all respects, Bob. I’m not surprised she was conscientious enough to respond. If we had more journalists like her, this would be a better and smarter country.
She’s awesome. Totally awesome. I can’t wait to have him explain how he knew about this little surprise.
I still believe Pete King was involved!
I’m not sure it was a staffer……seems to have Karl Rove’s fingerprints on it….Congressperson to Karl Rove to someone………well hiding source…….otherwise they would know who it is by now…..I don’t think it was Congressperson to AP/JK…or staffer….it was more insidious than that.
You can bet who ever it was, if it was a staffer, it wasn’t done without the Congressman/woman permission.
Gallup has bad news about Obama's bad week. How bad was it? Well, BHO's job approval went up, that's how bad it was. gallup.com/poll/113980/Ga…— (@eclecticbrotha) May 18, 2013
@jonkarl misrep of facts is not an "error" but a lie. Some go to prison, others pay a fine others lose their job. Tweet half apology? Nope.— ForUS50 (@FORUS50) May 19, 2013
At least this shows he’s getting a lot of heat, Forus. He wants it to go away and thought he could do this with a half-baked ‘regret.’ Now he’s edging toward ‘apology.’ It’s up to us (and fellow journalists) to keep the pressure on. Nerdy Wonka’s tweet above to ABC telling them the whole network can’t be trusted after this was right on. The longer they tolerate Karl, the lower their credibility as a network (not that they have any to begin with, but let them think that).
Here's text of Obama's #Morehouse address. Possibly best speech on race in America since '07 speech on Rev Wright. shar.es/ZhJzL— Wesley Lowery (@WesleyLowery) May 19, 2013
And the clueless media continue to harp on PBO’s “scandals” which matter only to the MSM echo-chamber.
A new scandal™ for the GOP: President Obama's approval rating up to 53% in new CNN/ORC poll ;-)— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) May 19, 2013
MSM absolutely fail to report from a perspective other than white privilege. They don’t mention how many other (white) Presidents have consistently encouraged non-white youth to strive for excellence.
Someone needs to remind all MSM that most people are tired of hearing news from this perspective. Diversity is *interesting* and educational for everyone.

President Obama just finished speaking at the Blank event and is taking some questions without the press before heading back home. A little later than his original schedule, but still pretty early. I still had CBS livestream on and was surprised to have him suddenly on.
Hey GOP! Stick THIS in your scandal and smoke it!
