President Obama Speaks at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum
Also at White House Live
(I’ve seen 3:0, 3:30 and 3:55 EDT for this speech – so, I have no clue!)
The Louis van Gaal of TODerdom!
Hey now, no need to be offensive! :lol:
Hey, no recent photos of Danny? Is he now the size of an elephant and won’t fit in the viewfinder?
It’s kind of that 57, but it’s also his tendency to attempt to eat the camera that has curtailed my snapping activity!
Doesn’t the poor baby get enough to eat?
Fantastic essay on the last thread.
Growing up, my dream was to be a starting pitcher for the NY Mets. That didn’t last long.
A complete FAIL of our MSM to report this. http://t.co/gz8b4llRYy— Donna NoShock (@NoShock) May 22, 2014
Cant’ understand how PBO and Shinseki can do so may things right for Vets then get hammered because one aspect of a monolithic system fails to function efficiently. This is ACA all over again. Did anyone hear the president say how many letters he gets from vets who thank him for all he’s done to make their lives better, including reducing homelessness, job creation, housing, etc…?
And Dem’s piling on. They never learn.
it seems everyone wants to jump on the negative bandwagon. Who ever defends the President? When I think of everything Flotus and Jill have done as well. It boggles my mind.
How long have Mitch McConnell been in the Senate? What have he done to improve health care and education for our veterans?
I adore @YesYoureRacist. He/she must have a strong stomach.

S/he really must, and always handles these scumbags with humor and good grace – it’s beyond my comprehension how s/he can do it!
LL, I’ve finally got the chance to read your post. Thank you for telling it like it is!
Thank you Ms. Gail!
Boy, would I love to hear what Phil Jackson has to say on the subject of Mark Cuban and D. Sterling.
so close and yet so far! It would have been an easy drive to Cooperstown.
The Duck Dynasty Star is still spouting Homophobic views.
I say, keep on talking. That how We The People know them and isolate them.
TBGOPer chairman is now arrested too in connection with photographing Mrs Thad Cochran who is in a Nursing facility bedridden.
Oops, That is…..

read letter from Chris Stevens' family. will GOP have decency to invite them to speak before Benghazi committee? 1.usa.gov/1ha0J8c— Eric Boehlert (@EricBoehlert) May 22, 2014
When was that sent to the oversight committee? It is not dated.
Was sent to the committee in Sept 2013 per the date in the .pdf file name, Linda.
Thanks Bob….I missed that.
Thanks. Now that I look like an idiot asking Eric Boehlert for the date.
That’s pretty damned recent and completely on point with this upcoming circus.
My heart aches for what they’re going through.
Please let the man rest in peace and the family grieve!
Understand why in some districts/states a candidate’s party designation is a bit of a hindrance, but I prefer stand-up Democrats! Don’t even know this guy in my timeline – turns out he is one – but I had to do a search to find that. Grrrr. Off to nap and grab a little attitude adjustment!
@AndyOstrowski You may want to proudly add "Democrat" along with your name – would gather more support! I had to go looking for it. @kharyp— (@JOBoomr) May 22, 2014

Jeff Idelson seems super excited. And I don’t blame him. :) :)
Where are the black players?
There were no African-American players prior to Jackie Robinson in 1947. The Hall of Fame was established in 1936……which means you had to play in the era beginning in the 20’s to become good enough to get inducted. Jackie was elected in 1962….

The Senate confirmed Richard Frank to be an assistant secretary in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Frank was confirmed by voice vote as part of a unanimous consent agreement reached Thursday.
He will likely serve under President Obama’s nominee to replace outgoing HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
The Senate is expected to confirm Sylvia Burwell next month to be the new head of that department.

Sociologists need to write papers on patron behavior at public #library computers. It would make for hilarious reading.— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) May 22, 2014
LOL! :) Their behavior on the computer itself, or their behavior while using the computer?
their behavior whilst circling to pounce on them.
Heh…even more hilarious…I can certainly imagine but would be curious to what the actual findings are. LMAO!
I have experienced that myself LL. ROFL!
A couple of years ago, my home computer broke and I took it to Staples. While waiting for repair, I went to my local library on Jefferson & Arlington to check my emails. It was a musical chairs hoot-nanny! I was never so happy to have my own computer back.
Oh, I’ve kicked people out for being dipshits on the computer. But, for the most part, folks behave.

I spy with my little eye a lil’ boy in a blue cap. This is a moment he won’t forget.
I have gotten a little sad looking at the people in this photo. I’m thinking of my grandfather and of all of the elderly and middle-aged black folks who would have loved to have been invited to this event.
Can you spot any?????

So POTUS sign over to the Hall of Fame the jacket he wore when he threw out the first pitch in 2009 He joked about some interest being show in the jeans he wore, but he said Michelle retired those jeans along time ago. :)

An Unexpected Interview http://t.co/EvFZ7VJOwB— Carol Ray Hartsell (@carolrhartsell) May 22, 2014
ROTFL…I’m glad they’re being mocked…. NBC has reduced itself to tabloid crap with this loser….
I can’t wait to find more examples……. what NBC has yet to disclose is the publisher of Glenn Greenwald’s book is a NBC subsidiary……..which is why they have been interviewing/running segments *exclusively* over the last week.
Hmmm…very interesting (but not at all surprising) piece of info. Major conflicts of interest with these MSM propagandists…
This guy has a serious “God”complex. Very disturbing and dangerous…
BriWi won’t go to Asia with the president, but he’ll go to Russia to interview the traitor???? How low he has fallen, and how tabloid he has become. No credibility left, Brian!
Throwing silly softball Q’s at Snowjob while soliciting gratuitous jabs at the President requires little to no work whatsoever.
Doing complex investigative research around foreign policy is another matter…

US Senators call for Washington Redskins team to change name, saying it's a "racial slur" bbc.in/1k8FV5L http://t.co/6T39wfHxio— BBC News (World) (@BBCWorld) May 22, 2014
“But owner Daniel Snyder has refused, saying it honours Native Americans.”
Snyder is full of it and he knows it. George Preston Marshall was a stone cold racist. Nobody and their grandmother believes he called them the Redskins because he had a profound respect for Native Americans. Godell needs to show some backbone and apply some pressure but I have doubts on that one.
Anybody who hires Lanny Davis as their PR/spokesman has no soul……. Prime example: http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/05/the-brash-hypocrisy-of-lanny-davis/257701/

This President does more in a 48 hour period than any of the other Presidents.
He looked so fresh, relaxed, happy and dare I say (whisper) sexy…
Please direct all angry, prudish emails to Chipsticks :wink:
Your last sentence only applies to A & E (Not the cable TV network). I dare not spell out their full names lest my post go into pending…But chips knows whom I’m referring to. :)
I began laughing when I wrote that last sentence HF, because I thought of them. ROFL!!!
HAHAHahahaha. *They* are very well known around here! :) :)
Lord, I haven’t thought of them in months. Can’t even remember their actual handles.

I saw a tweet that said that Nancy Smash was a bit emotional. His murder was a very, very big deal here and something no one living in SF at that time will ever forget.
Neither will we down here in SoCal forget him that’s for sure meta.
I love Nancy – she such a fierce warrior
I only wish more Democrats would emulate her strength!
I am surprised Diane Feinstein is not there.
