@washingtonpost I knew it when all else fails blame obama. Ridiculous! This is about Ryan and his plans not obama. Omg u guys r so obsessed.— Jovie my pal (@jovie_pal) October 31, 2013
Jovie, do you wake up everyday and setup a new twitter account?
I’m beginning to wonder that too, Donna!
Well Jovie, do you??
If I tried to “follow” him on twitter I would be dizzy by the end of the week from trying to keep up. I’ve never seen anything like it
The joke is on me I guess?
But in all seriousness somebody sees my name and complains and I get suspended. At some point I have to say. Pffft!
I follow around 5,000 people, I reckon around 4,950 of them are Jovie!
And they’re all suspended accounts.
This Jovie v Twitter war is tooooooo funny!
Nah, it’s his puppy jerking his chain.
My puppy is a new breed of Ghoul!
Well he had better get that puppy a contract cuz that’s one talented little fella!!!
OPCW.: Syria chemical weapons equipment destroyed.
So, no war? Bummer. bbc.co.uk/news/world-mid…— (@amk4obama) October 31, 2013
Which is one of the main reasons that the US MSM has lost their collective minds and gone into overload of ODS. Bash Bash Bash all day everyday. He didn’t give us our rating bonanza war so lets give him hell at every turn.
@AP Leaked by The #RNC. Boy they sure do feed the #Beltway press don't they?— Jovie my pal (@jovie_pal) October 31, 2013
Another hit job!
Good press coverage lately??? What bully pulpit ? It is mitigated by the republican Beltway machine!
Republican Beltway Media Machine have lost their collective minds. The bashfest taken place right now won't change that he's still POTUS.— Donna NoShock (@NoShock) October 31, 2013
Oh yeah, and the #RedSox won the World Series. Duck Boat parade on Saturday!
Here ya Go chips and AMK
Here is my puppy saying I need breakfast wake up http://t.co/oXCkQFtLLx— Jovie my pal (@jovie_pal) October 31, 2013
The cuuuuuuuutest thing, what a beautiful puppy!!!
Is this your account too? https://twitter.com/BonJovi
Oh, Jovie, he’s really adorable. Of course, he needs you to wake up and get him breakfast. Who else is he gonna call?
She is a cutie pie.
You are the ghoul.
wow Jovie, she’s getting big! What a beauty
A very handsome pup, jovie. Looks so innocent and nice like he would never do a bad thing.
Beautiful and sweet looking.
The truly scary thought is that many millions will soon lose their ability to buy food with the massive cuts in food stamps and we hear nothing about the impact of that heinous Republican cruelty. All we hear about is the ‘horror’ of a website that’s working better every day and still allows people to sign up for health care insurance by phone or paper. As ugly a monster as the Republicans are these days, they are now being topped by our hideous media.
Aced our company ISO audit today. 10th year in a row. Not a single nc (non-conformance). You stingies owe me a party.
Family reunion for Diwali tomorrow morn.
(2) With a company that successful, the party’s on you, Mister!
Chips made a funny! You think amk’s gonna fork over the big bucks for a blow out party at TOD??? He charges people to breathe!!
“He charges people to breathe!!” I suspect you’re right!
And you still owe me a bottle of BS and a piece of b’day cake.
Are we bottling BS around here now?
Ha, as I suspected: tight-fisted.
That’s what I’m sayin’!!!
Congrats amk – looking forward to the party.
Happy Halloween all TODbots!!! Barbara Waters checking in before I head all to the view. I will be busy today interviewing all the healthcare experts asking important questions.
Have a Boo tiful day everyone!
Looking forward to seeing these fine interviews, Barbara
Good morning! I see that the early birds are amk, Jovie and Chips:) So happy Halloween morning to all of you…Jovie, this is one beautiful dog! He’s (she’s?) going to be a BIG one:) Look at that face….reminds me of my Lab, Yankee. Best, most patient dog ever….. Do you have a pool? Because I bet this dog could get his energy out in the pool and would come home and sleep all night long:)
I’m Boner today. Where’s the wine? I know it’s early, but it’s 5 o’ clock SOMEWHERE! If I start early, that means that by 10am, when I start work (HA! We CALL it work, but it’s just playtime…how hard is it to be saying no all the time and act like an ass?) I’ll be a buzzed dick already! Nancy gets so pissed because she’s all about work and getting stuff done… “Doing the people’s business!”….But until I get that phone call from my Bros…..so I know what the hell I’m gonna say NO to today, well….I just sit back in my office and smoke my smokes and chug some grapes. I get PAID for this shit! Ain’t America great!!!
“I’m Boner today. Where’s the wine? I know it’s early, but it’s 5 o’ clock SOMEWHERE!”
Can I lay in the tanning booth AND drink and smoke? My talents know no bounds!! I look good, right? Right?
Hey John, Chuck Todd here, and the great news is that you can drink, smoke and tan all day, because the polls are in the Republicans’ favor – it appears, just by looking at the soaring level of enthusiasm for Republicans right now. People I’ve spoken to on the Republican side of the aisle tell me that they have NEVER been so fired up, it’s as if someone just lit a HUGE gasoline tank beneath them….
More on that later.
Ah! Chuckie! Dood! Doing a great job pushing all the BS all day, all the time! That little “somethin’ somethin’ ” I handed you the other day really did the trick! Keep up the good work…American’s GOT to be confused and uninformed…that way they’ll just blame the Prez….we haven’t done shit, but HEY! Just keep throwing out the lies and saying both sides do it, Chuck. This is gonna be OUR time!! Thank god corporations are people…that’s all I’m sayin’…..I get all my money from “those kind of people” the other ones, the middle class guys…not so much. I tell you what, you keep being the damn devil you look like, and I’ll keep sending some extra “somethin” your way! Obama and his truth telling and fairness for all routine is sucking the life outta me!
Uh, Boner, your jowls got a little over done the last time–little crispy on the chin fat.
Hey, Boner, it’s Thursday. Isn’t that the start of the weekend for you? Thought you’d be under a bar stool in Ohio by now.
Hey! I’m working on it! Like I said, “It’s 5 o’clock SOMEWHERE!”
THE LATEST GOP HOSTAGE IS JANET YELLEN
McCain Threatens To Hold Yellen Nomination Over Benghazi Details
By CATHERINE THOMPSON
McCain and Graham join Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in threatening to block Obama’s Fed appointee. Paul announced Tuesday that unless Senate leadership ties Yellen’s confirmation to a vote on his Fed transparency bill, he intends to put a hold on the nomination.
Great comment at this post …..
DrSquishy1 hour ago
What does Benghazi have to do with the Fed?
Yeah…well, it has NOTHING to do with the Fed….old irrelevant bag doesn’t care…the record is stuck and he can’t move the needle off….senile, vindictive, nasty ass man.
LH, looks like is long past time to go nuclear. I haven’t got any more patience for the idiots.
When will Americans finally have enough of the GOP not serving their interests? This exploitation of an American tragedy is disgraceful, and yet, there’s not a peep of outrage in the public square. And in the throes of a burgeoning economy recovery, that the GOP would have shut down the government, quickly followed by holding up the new Fed chair – people should be livid!
Is susanne around? Must congratulate her for Hawaii being the next sane state to pass gay marriage….passed the Senate yesterday…going to the House…should pass there with votes to spare. Congratulations, people of Hawaii!!
This is totally, totally O/T, but just saw it and wanted to share. Women ROCK!!! That’s all I’m gonna say.
My halloween treat to you all. http://t.co/ym4Lw2aMT6— gulpo rubio (@gulporubio) October 31, 2013
Oh my..that thing is UGLY…Rubio dear…what um…are/were you thinking?
You made me wear the ‘tume. Now you get to enjoy it all day long. Many coming soon.
My halloween trick to you all. http://t.co/ufdydUmCeZ— gulpo rubio (@gulporubio) October 31, 2013
I look good…. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-s9FR6X6VNok/Um0woswrUPI/AAAAAAAAWEo/AyQdAL_SERM/s1600/johnolantern.jpg
Just the right shade of orange, John, although I’d go easy on the whiskey and doughnuts–face is starting to puff up in all the wrong places.
Is lipo covered uner Obamacare? I’m in! Of course, Obamacare is ok for ME….but no one else….. you all will have to get sick and die fast.
ohhhh myyyy goodness,,,,,hahahahah
Okay, so I just had this conversation with a friend who happens to be a republican. She said that Obamacare is truly a mess and there is nothing good about it. She said that two of her friends were dropped by their insurance companies. When she watches the news there is not a soul saying anything good about Obamacare.
Now, we live in Alabama…our republican governor did not take the medicaid option and, of course, did not set up an exchange. The only company that is offering any health insurance is blue cross blue shield.
I was trying to reason with my friend (and she really is my friend) but she was not hearing it. I told her that I read of hundreds of people’s testimonies about having great success with the Affordable Health Care Act. She said the website is a mess and totally ridiculous. I told her that the AHCA is still law no matter what the website is doing.
I told her about the consequences our state is going through because of the decision that our governor made. I asked her if she knew about it and, of course, she did not.
Is there place that I can send my republican friend to look at the success of the AHCA with out President Obama’s face appearing anywhere on it? I know that this is a very strange request but I am tired of my republican friends bashing my President because the media is being so biased AGAINST the AHCA.
By the way, thanks for letting me rant. I hope I did not offend anyone but LORD HAVE MERCY this is so ridiculous!!!
Thanks and I hope you all have the most BLESSED day EVAH!!
His face is on here…but maybe you can go through and send her pertinent links:)
A better one…?? http://kff.org/
http://www.webmd.com/health-insurance/default.htm You’ll like this one:)
Thanks DF…it is so silly to have to defend the President of the United States. I just don’t understand why someone wants to influence someone else so much that they would resort to lying to do it!! How weird is that?!?!?!
I really am glad that I found TOD. You all are so awesome.
Well, trekkie, the Republican Party, combined with the media, hate this president for being elected twice and for being half African American. If a Republican president introduced the AHCA and had the same website, it would be touted as a resounding success and the website problems a mere trifle. Hard to think this when you’re in Alabama, but there are more of us than there are of them. They’re just noisier.
THIS jackiegrumbacher!!!! As a black person living in Alabama it can be a bit of a challenge to hear the forced negatives about our President. To be honest, it gets pretty discouraging….but I refuse to have a pity party about it. I will just party with you guys today (or as much as I can, seeing that I am at work, HA!!).
Here’s more goof stuff from AARP ………
Your Guide To The Health Care Law
Great link Ladyhawke, thank you!
Thanks Ladyhawke, this is too wonderful!!
THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW
This is a terrific interview with Majority Leader Harry Reid
Sen. Reid joins Rachel Maddow
This is the full, unedited interview of Senator Harry Reid, D-NV, Senate Majority Leader, by Rachel Maddow.
Another Obamacare horror story debunked. “And the reporter who interviewed her without getting all the facts produced inexcusable shoddy work, from Maria Bartiromo on down. They not only did her a great disservice, but failed the rest of us too.”
Glad that at least a few in the emmessem are pushing back.
I know it’s early but the video on scary tactics is hilarious. Sorry it is from HuffPo
I laughed so hard I started choking…you ain’t right J4O…you just ain’t righ!!!
I laughed so hard I started choking too!
I loved it. Wish I’d been there earlier!
Obamacae Hater here!
Although i have crappy insurance which gives me and my family limited medical coverage, I will not explore Obamacare because , you know , of the blk guy in the white house..
Well, since I’m Jake Tapper today, I guess it’s time to assume my concern-frown and ask people stupid questions all day, then draw absolutely inaccurate conclusions from their answers.
It must be awful to be him…..always looking on the dark side of life, never seeing the joys.
I’m taking candy to my class today for a treat. They are a good group, and I look forward to every Tuesday and Thursday to be with them.
See you all later.
Great going Jake – I know later today you’ll have many reports of Obama’s cabinet slacking off while they should be on the job. Like John Kerry taking a day off on his yacht while he should have been doing diplomacy with Syria and Russia. Or Obama playing endless golf while children in Africa are going hungry. I’m just shaking my head right now…
Get your shovels out you all because as Gov. Christie I will be spreading the bullshit deep and wide!
Hopefruit, what have you done?! If any new person dropped in here they’d be very confused!
Hello Chris, I’ve got wonderful news – our new NBC poll released yesterday showed that you’re the politician with the highest approval in the entire world. Even better than Barack Obama’s.
Yes, I have mastered the art of lying with a straight face. The secret is my bravado. People think I walk on water but the truth is that fat floats. It is all smoke and mirrors. I figure I will stay as Governor just long enough before my constituents figure out how I have screwed them and then resign to run for President.
New poll out fresh off the print- yougov/Rasmussen/foxnews /reuters/ Ipsos poll of the ages.
85% of respondents are baby boomers.
They hate everybody but themselves, 95% said so!
Good morning, TODville. Happy Halloween, psychos!!
I’m kinda busy right now manufacturing emails about one of my favorite subjects: BENGHAZI
Mooooooorning Mr Karl!!
I’m going to sit in the front row right under Jay’s nose. I will taunt him with the same 3 questions every day. Ha.
GM all from rainy Chicago. But then it seems like it is raining just about evrywhere today. Of course, what this means is that we will have a lot of left over candy which means the waist lines won’t go down anytime in the near future.
I have discovered todays kids are really lazy. Because of the the way streets are set upwhere I live, unless the kids are coming from a specific direction they have to walk an extra 40 FEET to get to my house. The horros of it all. My neighbor has about twice as many kids come to her door as come to ours. I remember when I would cover every house within about a mile of my house. Had to pull a wagon to carry all the loot.
My sons would make two excursions, dumping off their loot in between. They had tyo use pillow cases. Now the kids carry a dinky bucket which holds one tenth of what kids used to collect.
Where is the greed? Any kids with a lot of loot I assume to be from GOP families.
What you say to THIS Paul Ryan???
Somebody may want to inform Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, who is still fishing for the implementation of his Path to Poverty. He wants to ween the country off of our spending habits. Also our empathy, compassion, and human decency. These are not desirable traits.
The deficit will almost entirely vanish by 2017 without implementing Paul Ryan’s Dickensian wish-list
I think we really ought to be pushing the fact the the deficit will be GONE by 2017…..
Rise and Shine, you spooky kooks!
Happy Scary Day…….Mitch McConnell’s style……
