    POTUS says we’re lucky he’s not singing. Not so at all, Sir! We WANT you to sing! :-D

    Chips might appreciate this. Mr. Dotster just said re. Mariah lamenting her wilting hairstyle, “She had a flip, and now she has a flop.” :)

    It has to be cold out there and Ms. Carey is half naked. But FLOTUS said Mariah. Carey is some of the Christmas music she gets out and play as POTUS, Malia, and Sasha decorate their Christmas tree.

    This show was actually quite good. I’m looking forward to seeing the PBS version on HD and larger screen. :)

    My browser was apologizing with that “oops’ message I sometimes get but YAY I did get to see The President’s remarks.
    Seems that POTUS’ focus is firmly on expanding opportunity. Whatever the circumstances are I feel him pivoting back to making this country better for more of its people.

    He is on a mission.

    The GOP? They got zero. And by the way it is not the ACA covering citizens they are so steamed about. It is WHO is paying for the ACA. That is rich people. People that Don’t et a paycheck for their labor but make money from their money. They are tho ones who are giving up almost 4% of their capital gains to fund Obamacare. That is the source of the venom.

    So when PBO says he is open to GOP ideas to improve ACA he is kind of joking. The only improvement the GOP wants is the one that eliminates their need to pay for it.

      Jack Kingston must have missed the memo. My comment a bit up the thread explains that the GOP issue is who is paying not who might be benefiting.

      I do not like his last paragraph – the law will “weigh dems down next year”. is there ANYONE in the media who will talk about the postitive aspects of health care – like not dying & not going into bankruptcy.

    Bless My President! He still has to pretend he thinks these fools have a moral compass.
    They’re not embarrassed. In order to be embarrassed, you’d have to CARE what people think.

    We all know they don’ give a rat’s ass about solving problems or making the country better and they sure don’t care what people, other than their donors, think. But there are still some folk are there who just refuse to see the truth. If I hear one more fool spout the words “why don’t they just try to talk to each other… need to negotiate… blah, blah,” I’m gonna bust something!

    Does anybody have any Billy Joel Christmas music they can post?

    • December 6, 2013 at 8:32 pm

      You know Japa, you’d probably have chosen ‘I love you just the way you are’ for our first wedding dance, if we’d made it to the altar, in which case it would have been the shortest marriage in history.
