Am I alone?
Thank goodness! Isn’t President Obama amazing!!!!
Yes He is!!!!!!!!!!
Only for mere seconds!
Hey Rafa lover!
That’s Me! Hello There!
Layla, I saw on an earlier thread that you got good news from your doctor. You are in my thoughts and prayers for your continued health. Please let us know when you have to get your procedure done.
Well you are the sweetest!!!! TY so much!!!! I will certainly let you know when it happens!
Please let us all know! (I didn’t realize you were a Canadian – so’s my best Canadian friend forever CanadaBarb4Obama!) (well, I guess we could figure that out by her name!)
Layla, I have had you in my prayers and thoughts all day. I also have a special candle lit for you in my prayer setting in my music room. I did not get to hear what your favorite color is; so I made the prayerful decision to use an earthy color. A lovely brownish color. I love it very much. I am an earthy person by nature. I have it lit and placed on a very special desk that I have had in my home in honor of my mother’s voice of wisdom for me when I needed to just sit and mediate on what wisdom she would give me when I had difficult decisions to make. It is a very special focal point in my music room. So there your candle will stay, and I will pray daily for you and your situation.
(((((( Much love, healing power, and faithful prayers for you my dear Layla.))))))()HZ
aw, shucks, JOB, you are sweet. There are a few Canadians here and we so love PBO. And, everyone on TOD!
It’s kind of a “without borders” place, here, eh? (Threw that “eh?” in just for you, my dear friend!) Just interesting to “find out” who’s who, once in a while.
Hi Betsy, congrats on first.
Thanks :), first time being first in about 8 months, I am pretty slow usually.
Sigh! A body has no time to settle into a post before it has to rouse itself and soldier on!
YVW. Enjoy yourself ‘up there’.
I listened to PBO on NewsHour, then a bit to the Charlie Rose section, but left it when the pollsters came on, did not go back for the interview with Assad. I’m thinking I will find a clearer assessment right here on TOD! How I love and respect President Obama, and pray for his goodness and strength to guide him. http://www.gratefulness.org/candles/candles.cfm?l=eng&gi=PBO
I did a similar thing, MightyPamela – so far I’ve only caught NBC and ABC and a little of PBS … I’ll grab most of what I need to know at TOD!
Hey, how about that crescent moon out there!
Oh! Oh! I haven’t seen the moon yet!! I’ll go take a peek. Have been studying what to do with my bumper crop of quince this year. I confess to being quince-illiterate despite having two mature plants in my garden all these years… Never will another quince go to compost around here!! Yu-Uh-Um!! Made quiche paste over the weekend, am delighted with how well it turned out! On to more challenging recipes now!! And META!! I have a capture of the cover of your beautiful cookbook, but it may be a while before I can buy one. Congratulations!
I’m fully agreed with you, Pamela. I’m watching Lawrence O’Donnell now — but he’s the only news show I’ve watched today. Having actually been in government (and written West Wing!!) he’s the most REALISTIC.
Well done on boxing out VC to get first, Betsy! Nice moves!
/approaches cautiously/ Dudette? /hesitantly taps person on the shoulder from behind/ Dudette9t9? Is that you?
Keeping with the theme, and bringing it from the end of the last thread.
At some point after October 1, Obamacare is going to saunter into a Republican congressional caucus meeting and stone cold murder the fuck out of everyone there. Obamacare is gonna strangle John Boehner until he turns a deep persimmon color. It’s gonna shove Eric Cantor’s glasses down his throat. And, fuck it, why not, it’s gonna break Louis Gohmert’s head open to reveal the hollow space inside. Then, bloodsoaked and sweaty, it’ll head over to the Senate to do it all over again.
More hilariousness here: http://www.rudepundit.blogspot.com/2013/09/obamacare-is-going-to-murder-republicans.html
This could not be more true, LL:
“As far as the GOP is concerned, the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act is their appointment with the executioner.” – rudepundit
I hate violence, but I relished this post.
It will put a pillow over Michelle Bachman face so that even her ghost won’t survive….she’s been the cheerleader against Obamacare and I await her demise into oblivion.
I want her to follow through on her plan to go to Switzerland. I’m sorry for the Swiss but Minnesota has suffered enough. I just heard my husband say. “Ah Michelle you’re such a b@tch.” I know he’s watching TV news so I can forgive him this outburst. I know exactly what caused it.
She’s such a horrible person.
She does know that Obamacare is based on the Swiss model, no?
I’m sure she doesn’t know the first thing about anything. She’d like it well enough in Switzerland, just so long as she doesn’t have to give Barack Obama the credit for it. She’s such a succubus. Living off the government while trying to destroy it.
What a freak show these tea partiers are.
I’d be delighted to lend you a hand if you wish, 0388.
Lynn,,,,,I can always depend on you…thanks. WOSS,,,us that true? Her gay husband really said that?
No jojo. MY husband said that! lol!!! He was watching her antics in Egypt and said it in a fit of disgust.
OMG….wasn’t that the most amateurish display nuttery that you have ever seen? It would be a great SNL skit……GOP imitating Comedy.
LL – Think I’m going to tweet that to some of Obama’s folks like Jon Favreau and David Axelrod + Axelrod, if you haven’t already?
Ha. Meant + Plouffe …
I have not. Go right ahead!
I see all of you are having fun!! Well done Betsy
from the very bottom of the previous thread ….
At this point Assad, Russia & Iran have a few days to make it real.
Remember, both Russia & Iran are signatory to and have ratified the 1993 CWC. Syria is signatory to the 1925 Geneva Protocol.
Have no doubt President Obama has reminded both Russia & Iran of their responsibilities and the fact that they have an obligation to hold Assad accountable for clear violations of the 1925 Geneva Protocol. The Iranians, in particular, should be highly motivated to insist that Assad comply with surrendering the stockpiles to international control. The manner in which the President assessed potential actions by either Iran or Hezbollah to a US strike to degrade Assad’s CW spoke volumes as to how much discourse has likely occurred since 21 August with both of them.
Bob, I think this is why Reid postponed the Senate vote. If the Senate had come out with a resounding no, it would have taken the wind out of the moment for Assad to deal. Delaying the vote for a few days increases Assad’s anxiety and pushes him more quickly toward a resolution. That’s why PBO told Gwen Ifill he hadn’t decided whether he would go forward with an attack if Congress said no. He’s not going to give either Assad and Putin an out.
I agree Jackie. My tweet to Senator Reid was intended to send a different message, specifically, no US Senator at this point is unaware of the atrocities committed by Assad and thereby clear violation of treaties the US has signed and ratified (the law). Thus, they should be forced go on record whether they will enable the President to enforce the law or not.
If Senator Reid and the President have decided to give it a few days, that’s fine especially since a failure by Putin, in particular, to hold Assad accountable will make the President’s case even stronger that the US must enforce the law, and will solidify the fact that the UN is irrelevant in the matter since Putin will continue to block UNSC action.
Thank you Bobfr!
The noose is tightening around Assad.
wow you guys! Check this out ~ pretty cool!

@TheLastWord @GovHowardDean Finally someone gives PBO long overdue credit.— (@aspirational12) September 10, 2013
Even more surprising that it comes from Dean, hf. You certainly can’t count on him to have the president’s back.
Well I guess he’s smart enough to realize that if he gives anyone other than PBO credit, he risks looking like an utter idiot tomorrow and beyond – like much of the Emoprog/MSM contingent.
@TheLastWord Well done @GovHowardDean Yes, #PBO is not a #NEOCON cowboy. He is an ardent enforcer of the law. Putin got it. Osama did too.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 10, 2013
If memory serves me, Saddam Hussein himself cried ‘uncle’ before Bush’s Blunder, offering unfettered inspections, etc. And Bush said, “Too late. I want war and god damn it, I’m going to have one.”
That there is no one in the worthless MSM who cannot see the light years that divide Bush and PBO, is outrageous.
POTUS did. RT @HuntsmanAbby: Leave it to Russia to lead with a diplomatic resolution on #Syria. If only the US had thought of that first?!— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) September 10, 2013
Well @NerdyWonka It seems Ms @HuntsmanAbby once again failed to listen to our President. He's been discussing it with Putin since LAST YEAR.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 10, 2013
Thank you, Bobfr and NerdyWonka. Another Huntsman who thinks she knows more about the situation than President Barack Obama. Just saying. HZ
Thank you HZ!!!
@HuntsmanAbby What matters is supporting the President of the United States, as you'd want dad supported if he were president. @NerdyWonka— (@JOBoomr) September 10, 2013
I love your quick, and right to the point, jacquelineoboomer. Ms. Abby has allowed her “Chatter House Lock In” get to her head. That is what I called that chatter show of egos bursting on the scene of silly talk on msnbc spoiling peoples lunch. Not mine. I do not watch the crap.
Slow down, Ms. Abby. He is the president, remember. His name is, President Barack H. Obama who was elected twice; and he is doing a pretty darn and brilliant job. Go and leave us alone, please, Abby. HZ
Oh, HZ, I just saw some of that “Chatter House Lock In” over on CNN, so coming here for a sanity check and to see your words really made me smile! Thank you!
Anything, love. You keep them going. I love your wit and up front comment. Jacquelineoboomer, you do not play. Love you so much.HZ
Awww … thank you, darlin’. Love you back.
But I do play, too, just not with anybody who’s not “for” President Obama! Ha!
oh I’m going to crash early good nite everyone!
What about those cowards in Congress? What have they done, but act like cowards, specially the Democrats. The Republicans are voting No because they hate President Obama more then they hate the dictator who gassed his people, who gassed children. But hay it ain’t our problem, why should a country who says it’s a God fearing country care about the Syria people?
Exactly…all of a sudden they could care less “What Jesus would do”.
Hi jojo. Love your comment. My take on these sorry behind clown cases practicing politicians is that there Jesus would not even give them the time of day that they waste on their created crap. Remember they always want to say, “Jesus would say.” Well, I say to them, “Jesus just wants to know why you all are wasting His/Her time each day that is made for all mankind to enjoy with grace and dignity from the Almighty’s hand. What resolution do you want to bring up on that one, you bunch of haters.HZ
Hello our Lovely HZ. I just love the way you say things. The more we pray and trust in God and for Him to guide our President, the more PBO comes out on top because with so much against him (the media, his own party, and those that claimed to have voted for him but turn against him) when he is trying to do the right thing, he prevails against evil.
Did anyone see Rep. Ellison on O’Donnell show. He support what the President is trying to do. I am so piss at Democrats. A bunch of sorry ass cowards.
Yes, thank God for Rep Keith Ellison he cancels out Michelle Bachman.

Here’s one it wouldn’t hurt to send around again. What the MSM never acknowledges is that PBO is not a Johnny-come-lately to these issues of conflict on the world stage. McCain and his little gang may talk about naivete vs experience, but I would argue that in comparison with PBO, neither he nor his cohorts have given the matter a fraction of the contemplation Pres O has.

Anyone watching LO’s “Rewrite”? I had some wine and it made me think I dropped acid. I want to sell my property and move to Costa Rica after PBO leaves office because We The People are in big dip do do if we don’t get DEMs elected in 2016.
I’m not to please with Democrats, because they are not standing with the President. I know everyone has a right to their opinion, but I have no doubt if this was President Clinton the Dems would support him.

Everyone with a clue is now shutting up so as to not look like a total idiot tomorrow. Obama’s speech may now be a victory lap.

Can’t wait until the N.Y. Mayor election is over I like LO’s last word on Weiner spending all his life as a lobbyist or in public service. This is what they all do….from public service to lobbyist.
Had to mute it….out of control interview…..yikes!
No matter how bad or careless Weiner is, LO was out of line tonight. The first question asked, What is wrong with you?, was really out of place.
I agree…you don’t hatchet job on someone just because he made some unfortunate life decisions. When is it OK to kick someone when they are down…..what’s wrong with these pundits?
Yes, I saw that too, and also thought LOD was out of line. It was really cheap and mean. Disappointed in LOD….he could have made his point in a totally professional way. I don’t tweet, but if anyone who tweets saw it, please let him now how he descended to a very low level tonight.
I agree, I turned it off, couldn’t take the unnecessary rudeness.
I turned it off. What is wrong worth O’Donnell to attack a guest in that fashion. That was downright evil!
We have fools in the media.

It’s amazing how *name recognition* will get you a seat at the table. There may be a ton of qualified “journalists” who will never get a shot because daddy or mommy is unknown.
You are so right Sabreen. I can’t stand to watch her. Her opinion or lack thereof means nothing. The fact that she was chosen to be on that cycle show instead of Joy Reid really put a bad taste in my mouth. I never did watch it but I would have if Joy would have been selected.
I really considered for a moment the possibility that she was being sarcastic. Guess I cut her way too much slack!!! Sheesh.
So Abby Huntsman is saying that Putin/Russia changed the conversation. She is giving credit for any kind of peaceful solution to Russia rather than President Obama? Well, go ahead Abby Huntsman, sidle up to Putin, make a little love, kill a little time … what will it gain you to be this hateful towards our President that you sleep with the enemy? Probably about as much as it is going to get Snowden, a marked man, not a question of “if” but only “when?” So go ahead dear …. give Russia the credit. Goodbye.
The GOP sleeps with our enemies. Thank God PBO does not give a flying fig WHO gets the credit as long as no more Syrian children are murdered. Only wish the GOP/NRA had the same moral compass.

Not sure anyone will remember, but I used to comment here a bit a while back. Liberal Librarian’s post earlier today compelled me to peek in and say, “HI!” to all you good people. I don’t get to read here as much as I’d like anymore, but I did get my better half to start reading here and I stay updated that way. LL, that was a thing of beauty and I encourage everyone to share his article as if your lives depended on it, because in a way it does, since restoring a sense of “the common good” over the republican/libertarian selfishness might be required to stop the complete takeover of the world by the Koch Brothers types and their friends, who don’t care a thing for the average worker bees. Thanks for sharing that, LL, and Forward, Together, fellow O-bots!!

So sorry to be OT. But I truly need your help & expertise. Please. MD TODers, can a public transit system refuse to give you an incident report if there’s no police report, if it’s their internal report, but someone was physically hurt on that bus? No ambulance or police were involved. Isn’t the transit system a govt. body, therefore, supported by taxpayers? And shouldn’t we have access to those incident reports that are generated on public trans?
I am a state employee and I know all states and cities have public records laws where they have to provide a public record like an internal incident report. I would suggest that you contact the state or city Public Advocates office or equalivant to see if they can assist you in getting an incident report.
Thanks UT. The sight is full of good advice. I’ve even gotten feedback on a question I asked on a twitter sent by HHS. ACA will benefit not just me and hubby, but our youngest son too. That is a great relief. We were afraid of lifetime limit and our son has Type I diabetes. And he a hasn’t gone to dentist since under our insurance.
