    Aside from reforming healthcare, ending wars, and saving the global financial system, what the hell has Obama ever done for us?

      And what the hell has he done for us, besides all that and saving the American auto industry?

      My grandfather, born in 1885, was a coal miner in Pennsylvania – his dad sent him into the mines at age 11 to help support the family. Once when his mine wasn’t hiring much, in the 1930s – when he was married and had four children to support – he’d walk to another town to look for work. He went there each day to stand in line to see if he could be hired. After the third day in line, the “boss” said to him, something like, “I’ve watched you walk here and try for a job for three days in a row. If you come back tomorrow, I’ll hire you.” And my grandfather did and got hired.

      Seventy-plus years later, my mother was still telling these deeply ingrained family stories and for the first time told me she “hated” her grandfather for making her dad go into the mines at 11, and hated the “boss” who made him walk to another town four days in a row for a job in the mines. And sometimes she cursed like a sailor and it wasn’t pretty language – Ha!

      Just a couple of the reasons why I totally support unions and Democrats!!!!

        Wow. That’s a fascinating family history you’ve got there, Ms. J’OB.

        Thanks for sharing.

        So interesting, thanks JoB – especially since I’ve been researching family who lived in Carbon, Pennsylvania (and I’m still coming to terms with the name of the county). Even in those times they all used to lie on the census – every 11 year old in the country would be listed as “at school” – and no doubt most were working in the mines.

        My mother was pro labor/unions all her life – never really discussed her reasons – I used to have a quiet laugh as I’m sure she voted opposite to my father in her later years – he kept moving further right – while she did the opposite – but she never would talk about it if he was around.

    Great post on Obamacare! This job-lock issue is a big deal. We all need to write a letter to our local paper explaining how it’s good for Americans and will make it easier to be an entrepreneur, scale back to part-time work for family reasons, or to leave a hated job when you’re 60-64 (prior to getting Medicare). More boomers with peace of mind leaving the workforce will open up more jobs for young people trying to pay off their student loans. The media has certainly colluded with the GOP to distort the CBO report!

    But since many Americans aren’t aware that the Republicans swore to destroy his presidency as he was taking office in 2009, Obama explained what’s really going on. He talked about what he’s done so far to help create more opportunity and then swore to keep doing it (cue the Republican heads exploding, where are the Democrats who jumped in fear at a GOP finger pointed their way?).

    The President said, “So when you hear me talk about using my pen and my phone to make a difference for middle class Americans and those working to get into the middle class, that’s what I mean.”

    Keep up with the good news about the ACA ( Obamacare ). I listen to FLOTUS on Tom Joyner yesterday and the administration need to keep FLOTUS talking to young people about signing up for Obamacare.

    Almost 14 million people have signed up for Obamacare/Medicaid/CHIP. How in the hell are the Republicans going to stop this avalanche from coming down the mountain?

    President Obama has declared a Year of Action mentioning his pen and phone.
    Also, his signing table and chair which seem to be regular features of the president’s appearances around our country.

    I like it. Props are good. And PBO and his team have always been terrific at stagecraft.

    Funny thing about me: when I feel like caca, I become super nice to my patrons, because I don’t want my ill health to impact my work, so I overcompensate. I’m sweet as molasses right now.

    I decided to take a quick peek at two emoprog sites (Old Orange and HuffnPuff) to see how they were treating the “Eric Holder” news…

    1) Nothing on Old Orange (may be a bit early, but still)….

    2) Huffnpuff mentions it in a small perfunctory headline “Same-Sex Couples to Receive More Federal Privileges” but as you can see, are careful to not mention either AG Holder or PBO in the headline. Of course, we know that if the opposite had happened, there would be a screaming Red- 96 font headline with NAMES & manipulated pictures of both AG Holder & PBO.

    seems that there are more people who are tired of the routinely annoying proclamations of “PBO’s ‘real base’ or perpetual lefty-whiners” who will constantly threaten POTUS but NEVER lift any finger to do the real hard work that needs to be done on the streets;

    his words speak for themselves:

    Hopefruit2, GLAAD roils my ass like nothing else. President Obama damn near spends all of his political capital on marriage equality and Obamacare and these ungrateful motherfuckers from GLAAD have the unmitigated gall to award Bill and Hillary their highest honors. Next thing you know they’ll be awarding Chelsea a lifetime achievement award. These motherfuckers at GLAAD should have gotten down on their goddamn knees a long ago and proclaimed President Obama the greatest advocate they ever had, but no, it’s almost like they go out of their way to do or say anything remotely positive to or about President Obama. I am so fucking tired of these slights, when Bill Clinton was President he didn’t do a fucking thing to help our gay brothers and sisters serving in the military, he didn’t do a goddamn thing to promote marriage equality. But the guy that actually did do something about marriage equality and DADT, that guy, they don’t show any respect or appreciation.

    p.s. I appologize for my language to anyone that I offended now or in the future.

      When I read that post about awarding Hillary it made me wonder if they plan to give Hillary credit for all of PBO’s accomplishments. I flashed back to Hillary bragging about being involved with bringing peace in Ireland during the campaign. The Irish countered with info that she was only having tea with a women’s group. I will have a hard time voting for Hillary if her supporters start discrediting our guy.
