After a few momentous days, we need a music break.
Blue Oyster Cult – Don’t Fear the Reaper
Kansas – Dust in the Wind
Paco de Lucia – Entre Dos Aguas
Earth, Wind, & Fire – Fantasy
And in honor of tonight’s speech, Kool & The Gang – Celebration
Share your fave music below.
Kool and The Gang!
Sleep tite. Don’t let Rand Paul bite.
Rand Paul is toothless.
Am I first?
Thank yooooooou LL, LOVE LOVE LOVE Don’t fear the Reaper!
It is such a fucking awesome song.
And completely timeless.
Night time lullabies! Thanks LL
Sorry for the strange response. Keyboard turned to a foreign language
With 92% of the vote in, De Blasio at 39.9%. #nailbiter #NYCPrimary— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) September 11, 2013
Crosses fingers for him.
Christine Quinn a distant third – the media seems to be losing it all today.
De Blasio hits 40% with 93% of the vote in… #NYCPrimary— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) September 11, 2013
If he remains at 40%, there will be no need for a runoff :)
Hey, my old ‘hood went for de Blasio!
He is running the table in every precinct, even in Quinn’s own hood he is getting 47%…. don’t what is still left out there, but looks good.
This is nice – notice that Dem loser Anthony Weiner (in a 5-way race) has more votes than the Repub winner Joe Lohta (in a 3-way race)?
Hahahaha….translation: “burn, motherf**kers.”
Again, 6 in 10 CNN viewers persuaded RT @politico: White House tweets to blunt speech critics. politi.co/16j8l5C— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) September 11, 2013
Was just about to post this :)
The cutline said The speech was not well received among some media members…..wow, it really is all about them, isn’t it! They just talk to themselves…..they were not the audience…….They are so tiresome and self-involved.
Then there are the desperate trolls with their inane comments talking about golf games and incompetent presidents. The projection is strong with those morons.
Well, when you have media snakes planning to pan the speech regardless of what the president says then, yes, it will be “widely panned”. I swear my contempt for these lying snakes runs to my core. We are living in a scary time.
good luck De Blasio! Once again our President brings it home.
Nitey nite all
G’nite alice. Sleep tite! Don’t let Chris Hayes bite!
President's speech on Syria draws a positive response as 6 in 10 who watched favor his approach. bit.ly/15ilVGu— David Simas (@Simas44) September 11, 2013
I believe this number will climb as people digest what he said. The speech just made too much sense.
YES. http://t.co/BIDCOBtvwS— hippie (@nakedlaughing) September 04, 2013
The videos President Obama suggested you watch before judging anyone’s motives…..
Senate Intelligence Committee releases 13 videos of Aug. 21 chemical attack in #Syria. Very disturbing. 1.usa.gov/1ag1Fpu— Jim Roberts (@nycjim) September 07, 2013

Wow. state Senator Angela Giron will probably be recalled as well. With 16K votes counted, YES is up 57% to 43%. results.enr.clarityelections.com/CO/Pueblo/4803…— (@Taniel) September 11, 2013
voter turnout 17.25% – if you don’t vote – the GOP and the guns win
another lesson about turn-out…will we ever learn
All right all, off to read. Meeting tomorrow morning, so I shall be scarce. Enjoy the music!
Just saw CNN’s coverage post speech……… John King did not even mention the number that CNN’s own political unit tweeted out…. Pathetic
His words ” This was not a game changer, only 47% app/ 50 diss….. and the panel, even w/ those flawed #’s were like that is huge….. was in the low teen’s prior to the speech” ………… unbelievably sad state of affairs re: MSM

Was this the stop Obamacare rally where 90% of the participants qualify for medicare?
Hey 99ts! Three days behind…gotta love it :)
Given the carryon over the last 3 days – that’s probably a blessing :) take care
We all talk about Obama Derangement Syndrome, but in fact it’s more about Bush Embarrassment Projection. Everything they accuse or say about President Obama, is exactly what the problems were with Gee Dubya. I saw a redneck driving a working van with a Romney/Ryan sticker and I had to laugh, because in no way would this guy have been represented by the double R’s…you could just tell he didn’t want the n*****r in the white house.
Live Video of Bill deBlasio.

I like the President's walk.

Good luck New Yawk.
Bill de Blasio talks about two cities under Bloomberg: "Where proactive policing had somehow quietly slipped into racial profiling."— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) September 11, 2013
Bill de Blasio: "Police policies that singled out young people of color …That isn't a New York we can allow to continue."— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) September 11, 2013
Russia has jokes.
LOL. MT @WestWingReport: Moscow's state-run media: at #G20, Putin threatened Obama; said he would arm #Iran & cut U.S. out of space program— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) September 11, 2013
People wasting votes on weiner is pathetic.
Perfectly summed up.
Good analogy. MT @jjsimonWP: Scott Pelley: "Like the presidential seal, Pres. Obama had an olive branch in one hand and arrows in the other"— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) September 11, 2013
Lovin’ me some Scott Pelley at this point!
After the President of the United States speech tonight, all I could hear in my head is the song, “What About The Children?”
I forget who sings it.
Thank you, Mr. President for caring.
Can I get a giant FUCK YES!!!
Signed, sealed and delivered! We are going to Brazil! 2014 World Cup… Here we come! Go USA! say.ly/csJ6HW5— Omar Gonzalez (@Omar4Gonzalez) September 11, 2013
Fine job, Mr. President, in every way!
I love my President. Good night all!

Bill deBlasio won tonight,at the moment by 40.2 but Bill Thompson is demanding a canvass. Thompson has no chance to win the nomination so maybe he will think it over and withdraw in a day or so.
Joe LHota GOP mayoral candidate—gave his acceptance speech which could have been written by Romney. He divided workers from tax payers. Don’t these dopes ever learn?
Workers pay taxes.
Most moving speech was delivered by Chiara deBlasio age 18 who talked about the need to change a system that had been held in place by denying what the bedrock of our society should be—–an equal playing field.
Good night in Gotham.
Great news Vicki!!!!!!
Clue to #SenRandPaul that you video taped your idiocy before even listening to the President is a gift. Think #Mr47Mitt TY. cc @OFA @OFA_KY— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 11, 2013
:) Interesting that anyone who has “replied” to a speech by the President quickly becomes a no-one
They’re too dumb to even see that!
OK, after sitting @ hospital and looking @ Univision in mute (can’t figure out how to work it, I think the remote was surgically implanted in someone not me!), anyhoo, I’m henceforth going to call Philly “Filadelfia”, and they haven’t give me meds yet! Viva Filadelfia!
Gazelle, hope all is well with you!!!!! Fabulous speech by our fabulous President!!!!! Off to work; hope you all have a wonderful day!!!
Hi there Layla. Nothing complex, just the place making me want to put all on fast forward. If I stay any longer, I’m going to declare residency!
