Leaving mp behind (again), eh?? WTG!
Sowwy I didn’t wait for you, MP, but Amk poked me in the ribs on his way to bed, so I couldn’t resist. I plan to take it easier for the rest of the day, so we can walk together.
Lovely! Let’s plan our stroll for the solar-lunar conjunction! Then we shall garner the lift-off!!
Wait a minute there! No lift-offs for me. You have to remember I feel safest when both *my* feet are planted on the ground.
Try it, you’ll like it!

Morning, Obama sycophants!
What was the best moment of Kevin Hart’s life? Meeting President Obama and getting a nickname from the President.
A good friend of mine was at that Holiday party that Kevin Hart attended. He said that Kevin was a hoot! He wore a royal blue suit and my friends date took a picture with Kevin.
Utal, I don’t know how you find these goodies, but this is awe-some!!!!! THANKS! THANKS! THANKS! I ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ *Kev’s* unbridled enthusiasm. Exactly the way to react to our president, IMHO. You are setting a terrific example – THIS, THIS is the kind of stuff we ALL ought to find and bring here daily! I watched it several times and I was laughing every time. A real mood booster!
Did I say, ‘Thanks!’?
You’re welcome, VC.
Ha, ha, looks like we may need to make room on the naughty mat for Kev. I think he has a man crush.
That Kevin Hart is a HOOT!!
Thanks NW for providing a GREAT laugh for today

Is anybody else’s livestream shimmering (shivering), or is it just mine?
They are using that horrible auto update for the comments section……..I closed it …….HP does the same with their live blogging.
How do you close it? Simple instructions, please.
I closed the link and turn on the tv……it’s the only way
Okay, TY, Linda. Sadly, I’m allergic to TV so I have to stick with wh.gov
yes, mine too VC
Okay, There goes my feeling that I was unique.

#throwbackthursday Yeah I jammed with one of these back in the day. http://t.co/qNfScb4Qu6— Donna NoShock (@NoShock) January 30, 2014
Is it a toy record player or did Fisher Price not just make toys back then?
It’s a kids record player. You see back in the day the adults got to play their music on the HiFi System and we kids played our music on our own record player. I’d give anything to know what happened to all those Beatles 45′s. I could possible be a wealthy woman if I still had them.
Awww, ok then!! It really is what these kids needs these days because they get sick of their $400 “toys” with the quickness!!
Hey! you got my record player! LOL!!!!
Haha—-President Obama said he was going to start the SOTU speech with, “The State of the Union is cold.” Then decided that wouldn’t be “entirely appropriate”.
He’s so cute when he tells a little jokey. And all other times too.
Yes dotster – he is super cute when he makes those comments. He was in great form today! He had me laughing out loud several times.
Now, picture me sitting at my desk, with my earbuds on and I’m laughing out loud at my computer.
CNN cyron said PBO is ” touting ” his agenda. Then they talked over him and cut away.

Okay – progress is being made!
Wow…..what was the vote, do you know ?
No, not yet.
haha—PBO said, “When Michelle’s doin’ good and is happy, then I’m happy”. (as he was saying, when women do well, all do well) Being cute and making a cute little jokey again.
To us dotster, the translation is….”When mamma’s happy – everybody’s happy” and he was trying hard not to say it that way – hahahaha!
CNN and MSNBC cover the President's speech. Fox News has the weather. http://t.co/gCyay7rxvf— Media Matters (@mmfa) January 30, 2014
Now someone please Tell Me why Oh Why Fox gets a Front roll Seat at the WH press Room? Tell me why Fox is not laughed out of the Journos DC/NY community?
The WH tried to convince everyone in 2009 that Fox is not a legitimate news organization. It is a propaganda arm of the Republican Party but all their counterparts on cable and the national networks pushed back against the WH as trying to “control the media”. So the WH gave up the argument.
CNN only covered a couple minutes..
@mmfa What's this thing you speak of, "Fox News"? A weather channel affiliate? Never heard of it. Certainly would never watch it, if I had.— (@JOBoomr) January 30, 2014
Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus vowed Thursday that he and other RNC officials will boycott MSNBC until the network’s president apologizes for “petty and demeaning attacks” against conservatives.
The controversy began Wednesday, when MSNBC tweeted about a new Cheerios ad similar to one that was met with racist backlash last year.
“Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” the tweet read.
MSNBC later deleted the message and apologized
The truth hurts…….boo hoo
To whom do I send my list of petty and demeaning attacks against our President by Fox “News”? I’d like an apology or I’ll boycott Fox. Oh, wait … maybe I’ll get them to buy me a pony in lieu of an apology, since I’m already boycotting Fox.
I am on the floor!
I had not heard nor read the tweet and I certainly didn’t know about the repugs push-back. My, my someone is super sensitive!!
They sure hate hearing that they are racist to the core – they know they are that way – just hate being called out.
Is it just me or does the President look like he’s put on a little bit of weight, like muscle weight. He’s kinda bulkier and I think it looks good on him.
POTUS on board!!
OMG I love that!!!!!!!!!!!!
He’s so cute
I could watch this on an endless loop. Style, wit, and class for days!
That is so cool! Love how the White House is using their new media access to go directly to the public.
Watching the video over and over and over and over again. He’s awesome!
Those who Tweeted about Luke Russert……….Please Tweet baby Russert this:
I am not a Gallup Poll fan. But Luke and his DC/NY pretenders are.
PRINCETON, NJ — Fifty-six percent of uninsured Americans who plan to get health insurance say they will do so through a government health insurance exchange. That figure has steadily increased since Gallup began tracking uninsured Americans’ intentions in October.
@LukeRussert In spite of the MSM, More Uninsured Planning to Get Insurance From Exchanges gallup.com/poll/167105/un…— Donna NoShock (@NoShock) January 30, 2014
@LukeRussert h/t Nena20409 @TheObamaDiary gallup.com/poll/167105/un…— (@JOBoomr) January 30, 2014
The irony is that he is probably correct.
At least in regard to those who are still uninsured. A larger percentage of those who have not enrolled have and never had any intention of doing so.
Understand. Still “fun” taking him down. Can’t stand these buzzards.
Great Thanks to Donna and J’OB.
Thank YOU, Nena!
Keep this one in the back of your mind to bring out when you need to. THIS is why they want to dumb down the citizens. For real.
Add this complimentary little snippet to the mix: http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/political-animal-a/2014_01/obama_a_pretty_lazy_tyrant048857.php
It turns out that the first half of the 20th century was the high water mark of presidential executive orders, with FDR issuing them at a rate of nearly one per day! Obama, by contrast, is currently issuing orders more slowly than any president since Grover Cleveland. It’ll be interesting to check back on this number again a year from now.
One more tidbit: Republican presidents issue more orders than their Democratic counterparts, at a rate of 0.23 vs. 0.18 orders per day in office.
Blah, blah, blah. They just drone on and on and on….because they got SQUAT.

A longtime adviser to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) conducted a 2012 poll on behalf of a development firm at the center of one of the scandals that has recently rocked the governor’s administration, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.
Michael DuHaime conducted the poll to examine how a proposed development that would be built on land owned by the Rockefeller Group was viewed by supporters of Hoboken, N.J. Mayor Dawn Zimmer.
Earlier this month, Zimmer alleged members of Christie’s administration threatened to withhold hurricane relief money unless she approved the development, which would be located in the city’s north end.
Drip. Drip. Drip.

House Republicans have used a variety of excuses — citing Obamacare, sequestration, Syria, or the drug war — to explain their reasons for not passing a comprehensive immigration bill. But a Republican congressman cited one reason for the stalemate the GOP won’t admit publicly. The Southern congressman told BuzzFeed it is a matter of race.
“Part of it, I think — and I hate to say this, because these are my people — but I hate to say it, but it’s racial,” said the lawmaker, who remained anonymous. “If you go to town halls people say things like, ‘These people have different cultural customs than we do.’ And that’s code for race.”
who knew! Did you guys know this? Really? Race….hum.
Push Back works.
Now a 180. Jon Meacham needs to do his 180 on Camera and on Mourning Joke. They tout him as a Historian. Therefore his Hidden Mea Culpa is lukewarm and Not a tad satisfactory.
Jon Meacham left quite a few people confused on Thursday morning when he suggested that neither Franklin D. Roosevelt nor Abraham Lincoln ever said they were “going to rebuild America on an executive order.” It turns out that he was pretty baffled by what he said, too.
“I was at best imprecise and at worst just plain wrong today,” Meacham said in a statement provided to TPM. “I did not say what I meant to say: that great presidential leadership requires not only executive action but public persuasion and legislative action.”
@jmeacham Thank U 4 the clarification but will U plz do it in front of a tv audience as well since that is where U first made the mistake.— Donna NoShock (@NoShock) January 30, 2014
D4O Lady you are On Top of it all Naming names and taking No prisoners……. …..Yes….. sending Those who Need imprisonment To the slammer. Thank YOU, D4O
It’s not going so well for him over on Facebook where he posted this apology. I’d say 70/30 not in his favor. I don’t watch Morning Joke because well…he’s a joke but folks are letting him know this is not his first time misspeaking.
Here are a few of the replies:
“not the first time you “accidentally misspoke’ about this president. and it always happens on Morning Joe. Why???”
“And where is the President saying that executive order is the only critical element in statecraft? There were, what, two lines about executive orders in a 75 minute speech?”
“So you blast the black President on national TV, then try to explain yourself on Facebook. What a waste of a life.”
Huh. Well, whoever this one is, perhaps he would do well to just sit down and shut up. IMHO.
