5:55 ET: President Obama delivers remarks at Henninger High School, Syracuse
More pics later, chat on!
repeat from last thread: So glad to see Governor Andrew Cuomo on tarmac with POTUS. NYC hater Press had been saying Cuomo wasn’t a part of NY State tour.
Wrong Again, haters.
Cumos’ smart, he was always smarter than Clemenza.
I am enthused with President Obama in case no one knows.
Really? Quelle surprise!
I’m shocked. Didn’t see this one coming…
Why am I always the last to know?
Please drop @Starbucks & head towards @Peets_Tweets for common sense about guns in their retail stores. #safecoffee http://t.co/OyEazLRMY8— meta (@metaquest) August 22, 2013
I love and prefer Peet’s coffee over Starbucks anyway.
Never heard of Peet’s C&T before. Hopefully, a few are in the DC metro area.
It’s based in San Francisco, so if there aren’t any locations in the DC area, you can order online for home or office and they will ship it to you. It’s MmmMmm Good
LOVE these photos!! He’s got a GREAT message that will resonate with middle class families and he’s having a great time.
Chipsticks, I love your tweet about the lady in the red skirt at the Magnolia Deli. Hahahaha!
GG, you got to tell me what Ms. Chips said? Please, pretty please.
RanMan, just scroll over to the right sidebar here and check out the Tweets, but here is what she tweeted above the red skirt pic
I’m guessing the woman in the red skirt is a Republican?

GG, thanks. I did reply to Ms. Chips with this: As Regan would say, “Ahhhhh now there you go again”.
Funny RanMan (I can hear Ronnie saying that too)
" A new poll done for Repub members of Congress has found huge public opposition..to..shutting down the government"
washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…— Patti (@Floridaline) August 22, 2013
Geez, did they really need a poll for this, 57. Shutting down the government is a BFD–a disaster for every single American. There are very few areas of our lives that aren’t touched by the Federal government. And they are thinking of doing this in the fall in hurricane season and with the holidays on the horizon. I swear the Republicans in Congress are stark, raving mad.
People are sick and tired of GOP’s shenanigans. MSM, please take note.
There’s a part of me that wants them to go ahead with this so they can go right off a cliff but I wouldn’t want innocent people to suffer because of their stupidity.
I hear ya.
I too would like them to TRY (but of course fail) just so their nastiness can be made even clearer to the American public.
That’s why Repubs have decided to breach the debt limit instead of shutting down the government. Still an idiotic move.
Stark, raving, effing mad. All of them. I blame John McCain, who told this country that a stupid, science-hating, ignorant dingbat could be a heartbeat away from the Presidency. That’s what ushered in this madness. If he had any shame, he’d slink away to the desert and live the rest of his life under a rock.
57, you hit the nail on the head; that’s when all of this ugly bigotted hatred started!
McCain gave permission for this stuff to become mainstream. They would have thought this ugly crap, but there was still a line of decency that wasn’t to be crossed. Sure, there had been some maniacs in Congress, but they were considered fringe. It was McCain’s choice of Palin that unleashed these floodgates. Being ignorant became a badge of honor; being from the ‘outside’ was better than understanding basic economics on the debt ceiling, etc. We’ve always had some loons, but we never gave them the keys to the car. John McCain told the country that Sarah Palin was qualified to be President – that meant every ignorant yahoo had a right to run the government.
Agreed—–McCain’s choice of Palin unleashed the dirtiest of dogs. The haters came flooding out from under their rocks —–”she’s just like us!” I also believe without that demented VP selection the bigots would have remained tucked away and out of sight.
I’ve believed that from Day One. We would not have had the tea party take over our political system. And a good deal of the rhetoric would have stayed under the sheet – pun intended. It was only through McCain’s elevation of that idiot that we are now in this mess.
My God. I could not agree more. But… But… But…karma’s a bitch And that bitch’s name is Sarah Palin.
That crowd looks like the size normally in attendance for a NCAA Final Four game!
Wow, I was thinking the exact same thing. For a minute there I thought I was looking at the university of kentucky scoreboard.
From @NBCNews: "The Defund Obamacare effort has gone nowhere." OFA.BO/RkUrtd— Brad A Schenck (@BradASchenck) August 22, 2013
I went to my mani-pedi appointment yesterday after work. While there, my manicurist & I were talking about how my daughter will be completing her residency in time to be a benefit to the Obamacare coverage. Nancy, my manicurist asked when would that be and I said Obamacare goes into effect, 1/1/14, but that people can sign up beginning Oct. 1st of this year. Nancy became so excited, she started talking to the other manicurist in Vietnamese and all I could understand was the word “Obamacare”! She asked me how to sign up and I told her that I would help her. She said she doesn’t have health insurance and would bring her son’s laptop for my next appointment in two weeks so I can put the link on the computer and show her and the other manicurists how to put in their info into our “Covered California” Health Insurance Exchange.
Just imagine what one conversation, one encounter can accomplish. Think of all of the other Vietnamese people, especially manicurist that will know how to sign up for coverage by October 1, 2013.
I love this story. It’s so wonderful to see that people are grateful for this coverage. Covered California is doing a great job.
Thanks meta. I felt so good when I left there and you can see, I’m still stoked & excited that I’ll be able to help reach one, teach one, cover one.
That’s what it’s all about! OFA has prepared us well for this grassroots advocacy. Carry on!
Yes, it has
You are right Meta, 2008-2012 OFA has prepared a whole new generation of Activates
Sorry for the misspelling activists. to finish and citizens who want to be part of our government.
Good for you, GGail for getting the word out.
This is one of those segments of our society that does not read or listen to a lot of information in English and unless we help spread the word this way, we will be doing a disservice to our President and all that he did to provide us with affordable healthcare.
Just think of all of the Asian business’ that we patronize daily, weekly. We need to be looking at them and having conversations. I know I’m not the only person here at TOD who gets a manicure/pedicure every two weeks???!!!
GG, that is absolutely wonderful. I am talking to as many people as I can, especially when I go to my favorite “hole-in-the-wall” to play darts. I’ve talk to the owner about me doing a quick presentation on Obamacare on Thursdays and Saturdays afternoon. Keep up the good work.
That’s the way RanMan!! yea
Thanks GGail. That is so exciting. That is how I spread the words as well. Conversations are waiting to open up. Moving it on for Oct. 1, 2013.
@ThePlumLineGS doesn't matter what they demand, bc we aren't negotiating over the debt limit. They are only taking themselves hostage— Dan Pfeiffer (@pfeiffer44) August 22, 2013
I am so glad Dan Pheiffer said this. We ARE NOT negotiating over the debt limit. They are talking to themselves and holding themselves hostage. If the GOP thinks they will get PBO to blink on this they need to think again. They can’t play this game if the other side won’t budge. The president only has to go on national tv and tell the American people what the Republicans plan to do and outline the consequences as exactly as possible. The Republicans are so intent on denying your health care that that are willing to make you suffer further by delaying your social security checks, veteran’s pay, Medicare reimbursements and risking your airport and highway safety, to mention just a tiny portion of the consequences. If people don’t want to suffer these consequences they can call their Congressman or, better yet, vote them out in 2014.
President Obama’s got GREAT people! You tell ‘em Dan!!
Way to Go.
I hope they keep repeating it.
POTUS will be interviewed by Chris Cuomo on 8-23-13……on the New Day…..on CNN
President Obama and the Dems need to get out first on this outrage. Get on television now and let the American people know what the Repubs plan to do to damage this country. Put the blame squarely where it belongs and don’t let the MSM twist this to blame the Dems in any way or form.
Good and Great Afternoon to my Fellow TODvillive Township.
Wow…..so much information today. I have finally got up
Thank you all
LMAO! More infighting and chaos that’s being buried in the media….
HEADLINE: Rasmussen Reports Announces a Change in Management
// For Immediate Release
Asbury Park, NJ, August 22, 2013 — The Rasmussen Reports, LLC Board of Directors today confirmed that founder Scott Rasmussen left the company last month. In part, the move reflects disagreements over company business strategies. Mike Boniello, the company’s chief operating officer, will assume a broader leadership role until a replacement for Mr. Rasmussen is named.
The Company emphasized that Mr. Rasmussen’s legacy remains intact. His polling methodologies and protocols, widely acknowledged as among the most accurate and reliable in the industry, continue to guide and inform the company’s public opinion survey techniques. In addition, the editorial culture of excellence that he built is still very much in place. //
The 2nd paragraph contradicts the first, but okay….LMAO!!!
Oh, hf, this is a laugh. Rasmussen..”widely acknowledged as among the most accurate and reliable in history.” Acknowledged by whom? RWNJs? Limbaugh? Beck? Palin? Cruz?
Fox and Empty Political Pundits were the Ones spouting Rasmussen. So with Scott Rasmussen gone, the name Too
“widely acknowledged as among the most accurate and reliable in the industry”
Fordham University has published a ranking of the most accurate pollsters of the 2012 in terms of national trends……
1. PPP (D)*
24. Rasmussen ( they tied with Gallup )
Or you can say that Rasmussen made the top 24 in polling.
MT @samsteinhp: Rasmussen post says Scott Rasmussen has left the company, which means there is a 60% chance he's still there. #toosoon?— Amanda Terkel (@aterkel) August 22, 2013
Funniest tweet today!
Oh, it gets funnier:
Good riddence, Rasmussen! Go skew yourself. businessinsider.com/scott-rasmusse…— Dante Atkins (@DanteAtkins) August 22, 2013
Their polling methods weren’t accurate during the 2012 elections, that’s for sure.
Shorter Rasmussen: people weren’t buying our shit anymore, so we had to let the old man go.
Will I reap bad karma if I mentioned I hope his golden parachute has a hole in it?? Yes, I know I will.. Sheesh MP, get offline, light another candle and go make some lunch! Bye y’all! Big big hugs all around!
It’s okay, MP, I was recently gonna hit Chris Hayes in the face with a brick, until VC stopped me.
I had an email from GoFundMe reporting in the past 2 days, $98K plus a bit has been raised in support of the Christopher Lane Memorial Fund. Christopher is the young Aussie student who was shot and killed by the bored American teenagers earlier this week. This is a dynamic message and indicator of how upset people are with our out-of-control-guns-for-everyone mentality.
That story is so senseless and sad.
President Obama made a stop in Seneca Falls on Thursday during his bus tour of Upstate New York. … The visit was not part of the announced schedule for Obama’s Upstate New York tour. … Many consider Seneca Falls the birthplace of the women’s rights movement.
JER, that’s a feel-good tweet. POTUS cited Seneca Falls at his Inauguration this year which was touching then and going there today is just lovely.
That’s awesome. Thanks for posting.
Thanks JER. He presented the Woman’s League with a signed copy of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.
He is so thoughtful.
How WONDERFUL. Not part of the announced schedule, maybe, but certainly well planned and executed!

Is this the one you meant?
Hey Shipmate, it’s about flippin’ time you became a blog tyrant here and gave us a music-y post or two? What say you?
I beg your pardon. I was not aware that I had been promoted from my naughty mat detail to blog tyrant. Who died? Did I fall asleep and miss a thread?
Shipmate, you are hereby promoted to Admiral-Ish Commandery Thingie, take a bow!
BOW? SAILORS DON’T BOW! We salute when honored. This is an honor? or punishment?
Okay then, no bow-ing….
even though the Google says it’s a shippy thing:
…. I salute you Sir!!!
I return your salute. Bow is, as depicted, the front of the ship. Musicy stuff is in the next thread. Thank you very much.
Yes Sir Thanks.
Roll On, Mr. President!!

How can people take photos of the President without their hands shaking? HOW?????
And what other President were we excited to photograph the back of his head???
Or see him in the rain???? (Hint!)
For you hon!
Close, hon, very close! But I was thinkin’ more the one where it’s dripping off his ear (green background, maybe)? Not that I’m greedy or anything.

Now, there you go JO’B, taking both you & me straight to the Mats – and I’m still at work! tsk, tsk, tsk,
Hey, blame me. I can take it!

Lamh, they think they can scare the president into doing what they want. They don’t know, nor never have known, who they’re dealing with.
Hole of the ass!!!!
I decided to look at the comments section of this article. The first few were great; hope this sentiment lasts and encourages the pro Dem vote next year!

Hastings was on drugs…..the coroner reported it yesterday…..he had meth and weed in his system. His family confirmed that he had been using again after 14 years on the wagon.
