Okay……I promise I am not cheating.
On line working and refresh for up to date news.
EVERYONE IS 1ST…..NOT TRYING TO BE GREEDY!
HAPPY THURSDAY TOD-ENJOY YOUR WONDERFUL DAY!
Congrats Cindy! Good afternoon (my part of the world) TODers!
Happy BEAUTIFUL Thursday to you Sabreen60!
Have a WONDERFUL DAY!
Missed it again! Fast footwork there, Cindy!

Good morning, fellows.
Morning LL, morning everyone.
We will keep fighting until everyone has equal rights under the law.

Good morning, afternoon Ms. Chips, Danny and TOD family. I hope everyone is doing will this lovely Thursday. Congrats Cindy on being first.
HAPPY BEAUTIFUL THURSDAY RanMan!
Everyone is 1st today, it’s my 3rd time so I am graciously sharing : )
Hey y’all! I’ll miss this until later. Be well, everyone!
amazing how the msm has totally ignored cantor getting canned. if it was pelosi, we would be having 24×7 verbal diarrhea.
And nonstop vomitage about how it spells “DEVASTATING news for Obama.”
Local news in SoCal is that Kevin McCarthy (from CA Central Valley) is fav to succeed Cantor.
Would be interesting choice. Just how RWNJ crazy can a GOPer from true-blue CA go?
If immigration is an issue, where will that leave McCarthy? The nation’s premier agricultural area (think: almonds, raisins, just about everything else) could not survive without cheap, exploited laborers.
Patience is one of President Obama’s greatest strengths, I guarantee you that he has sat alone and with his team and figured out the right way forward on Iraq. I’m very eager to hear his plans on Iraq
Ukraine to sign EU deal this month.
nutin for putin.
Great headline in today’s L.A. Times: “Obama says ask first, shoot later.”
THE FOOLS WHO HAVE CONTINUALLY BEATEN OUR SOLDIERS TO DEATH WITH DECADES OF MISUSED AND ABUSED WAR PLANS ARE THE REPUBLICANS…I AM SO PROUD OF PBO FOR STANDING SOLID WITH HIS REMARKABLE DIPLOMATIC INTELLIGENCE. MAY GOD DEEPLY BLESS HIM AS HE CONTINUES TO STAND AGAINST SUCH NIGHTMARES AS JOHN MCCAIN AND CRONIES! YOU ARE LOVED MR. PRESIDENT….:)
Who in their right mind wishes to shop .@Target while this foolishness is going on?! #OffTarget http://t.co/VTJcUcCCiv— Cornelia (@PaladinCornelia) June 19, 2014
wimminz too now?
Shooting in aisle 7…..
My Granddaughter works at one in South Carolina……
I will see her Saturday and ask if this has happened there too. I know there was an incident in the Savannah Target recently.
I also want to know what the word is from the higher ups on how to handle it.
My wife and I were talking the same thing just the other day, these gun nuts are nothing but guys that didn’t receive the proper attention when they were growing up. There sheer idiocy of walking around a department store with a rifle strapped to your ass.
Insane doesn’t cover it.
Signed the #OffTarget petition put out by ‘Moms against Guns’….which I got in my email this am.
So far they have gotten over 300K signatures to send to the CEO of Target.
I never shopped there anyway, but now there is no chance in hell with them allowing this boorish behavior in their stores.
The junk they sell can be gotten elsewhere.
link??? I’ll sign it!
The word target itself has got a creepy meaning now.
One can only imagine what would happen, if one of these happy go lucky gun toting fools, entered the store on a day that they were in a bad mood. God helps the person who looks at them in the wrong way or say something to them about those weapons around kids.
Mass Destructing Indeed…….
Me….hurrying to my car.
Neighbor….What is the hurry ?
Me…. I want to get back…the President is making a statement on Iraq at 12:30.
Neighbor…….He doesn’t have good advisers around him…
Me…. Have a nice day….Sigh !
Of course they used to watch Glenn Beck on Fox
To him a “good adviser” would be one who’d have the 1st Marine Division landing in Basra.
Obama's still in the sitroom, so he'll be delayed— Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) June 19, 2014
That means that somebody is about to join the Pharaohs.
LOL :) Thanks for the belly laugh DON. :) :) Made my day.
Don, I’m beginning to think you’re on to something – he still hasn’t come out

Hi amk, according to the countdown clock, it’s ~ 1 hour and 40 min from now (time stamp of this comment).
yeah, typical switch and bait.
Looks like it :)
Something screwy about that site. The event should have happened ~ 2 min ago and the clock shows more than an hour and half remaining to elapse.
Could it be that they didn’t want to coincide with PBO’s Iraq statement? I had noted earlier that I would be needing a split screen for the two events! :)
Lady Greenspan is salivating at the thought of another war.
She is going to have to choke on her drool
Yes, and I will be cheering if that happens..
Why do they think anyone that watches MSNBC cares what McWar or Boehner has to say ?
Did Lil Luke Russert and Lyin Ryan have a lovers quarrel ? He seems to be sucking up more to John Boehner these days.
Talk about #selfpromotion. http://t.co/px1q9PexCv— (@amk4obama) June 19, 2014
Dick & Liz Cheney have started almost as many "Non-Profit" organizations than the Koch Brothers! All of which are simply fund-raising scams.— Tom (@waswhaler) June 19, 2014
Unbelievable that billionaires like the Kochs and Cheneys feel the need to raise money. Guess they want somebody else to pay for their lies and hatred.
what is still more unbelievable is how the dunces keep losing paychecks to these swindling scumbags and yet whine about taxes.
President’s statement now scheduled to start at 115p ET.
Thanks Bob for the update!
Good…..Mrs Greenspan will be gone by then.
May I just say again how much I despise the main stream media :(
You have lots of company. There is a reason why we don’t see any polls about the public’s perception of the mainstream media.
I hope PBO makes Congress vote on this…….get them on record, the cowards.
PBO is the MAN!!!!!
Time have been move to 1:15pm.

Republican Senators “Blame” Harry Reid For The Rescue of POW Bowe Bergdahl
In a letter led by Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), the senators rebuke Reid for not allowing Republicans to vote on an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act for 2014 that would have expressly barred Obama from transferring prisoners from the Guantánamo Bay detention center.
“Because of your actions, members were not able to get a straightforward, focused vote on barring the transfer of Guantanamo detainees,” the senators wrote. “The end result was that the bill only contained a reporting provision (which the president broke) and not a strict prohibition on transfer of detainees as was previous law.”
Republican Sens. John Cornyn (Texas), Ted Cruz (Texas), Johnny Isakson (Ga.), Mike Lee (Utah), John Thune (S.D.), Roger Wicker (Miss.) and Mike Enzi (Wyo.) also signed the letter.
giggles to self.
Good all as we wait and watch the “talking heads” report today’s events using the SWAG system of journalism.- (ScientificWildAssGuess)!
The timing for the President's statement on #Iraq has been updated to 1:15pm ET.— @NSCPress (@NSCPress) June 19, 2014

Very important that he is focusing on Africa!!!
Hi, Bobfr! Along with you all, I ….
msnbc is live streaming the “policy conference” by “prominent republicans”.. Cruz, Rubio, etc. Never do I see them livestream POTUS or FLOTUS or VPOTUS.. I don’t believe they even streamed POTUS visit/speech to ND last week. This is why I gave up on the media. They are worthless and they are republicans.
They never get tired of giving airtime to people who don’t know what they’re talking about.
yes indeed derbingle, it’s pathetic.
Exactly – just look at the front row of the WHPC…tells me all I need to know.
luckily I can’t see them, watching right now from whitehouse.gov :)
Saw this somewhere before – Bob has 36 candy bars, He eats 29. What does he have now? http://t.co/htJzHR33Vj— Peter Y. Chuang (@peterychuang) June 19, 2014

What? You don’t want to hear what the President says while it is ‘hot off the press’? /smh at your waning devotion/
Good Night. Sweet Dreams. :grin:
Sleep tite. Don’t let Chuck Todd bite!
Desertflower this is the link to the petition against TARGET you requested.
And anyone else who wants to sign….to let TARGET know we are not shopping at their stores while
these dimwits are walking the aisles with their guns. ENOUGH.
Thanks Hope44 – I signed it too.
Thank you for posting the link, Hope44. I signed the petition against Target.

What a foolish overpaid joke.
I have the ESPN FIFA WC in the background and Happy was playing ;)
Columbia Vs Ivory Coast. Not watching, just listening…..working while waiting for POTUS on Iraq.
I don’t typically watch soccer, but it’s been on here at work. I caught the end of the Columbia vs Ivory Coast game. It was possibly the best 30 minutes of soccer that I have ever watched. 3 goals in about 20 minutes of play!
Usually my philosophy is: If I want to watch men struggle for 90 minutes to score, I’ll take my friends to a bar.
Good Afternoon TOD.
Cindy’s got a 3-Peat GOLD :star: YES!
Hey Nena20409, I kid you not, I am feeling GUILTY as hell.
I wasn’t trying, just refreshing to keep up with the news while working, and up pops the new threads.
I promise that I am sharing; EVERYONE IS FIRST TODAY! : )
I love you guys….I’m not greedy, promise.
You are priceless, Cindy. <3 you for it ;)
Enjoy your trophies. No Guilty feeling…..please, I beg of you.
You earned them. Please be :cool: about them as our Chips when she tops the charts MORALLY ;) .
Cindy please Enjoy your Au :star: You earned the GOLD!
LUV YOU MAN…..making me cry : )
Ukraine Is Far More Unified Than One Might Expect Given The Media Coverage
Emmet Tuohy is a research fellow at the International Centre for Defence Studies in Tallinn, Estonia, writes that despite the violence in the east and the narrative that bitter partisanship, or even ethnic tension, is growing in Ukraine, if one dives into the facts in the streets and the polls taken recently one would find that the country is not really divided at all ….

Hmmm..the front row of the WHPC looks JUST like the Republican/Libertarian party.
well I still believe the majority of the press- certainly the whpc ARE repubs/Libertarians/Teaparty – all the same I guess ;)
CNN has a stock photo of the briefing room with no one in it at the same time they are talking live to Jim Acosta on a spit screen
okay looks like we’re getting ready.
oops spoke to soon, just the white male repub lineup masquerading as ‘journalists’
2 minute warning
Why, o why do they start the presser with the idiots ‘on stage’?
And, all they talk about is what the Republicans will say …no matter what PBO says.
They just showed McWar on the Senate floor saying ” The President is fiddling while Iraq burns . ”
Who the hell cares what McWar says.
‘Who the hell cares what McWar says.’
Not me, that’s for sure.
These idiots are the dishonest Republican “brokers” who are hired and paid outrageous salaries to lie to the American people on the daily basis while spreading Republican propaganda!
The three stooges…..
Except that it’s more than three! :roll:
Anticipation……is making me wait.
Here’s POTUS…..I hope I had not missed much ;)
Shorter Obama: We won't be the Shi'a air force.— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) June 19, 2014
no combat troops…….— (@ChristiMtl) June 19, 2014
And that’s the bottom line. Tell the media I said they can go suck a rotten egg.
No Combat Troops
Billo lying yet again. Shep may be Liberal, but Greta is a PUMA. Other than Shep, they all bash POTUS.
For Jim Acosta… “let me repeat myself” POTUS. Don’t they listen at all?
They live to OPINE and Distort, period!
oh f*ck you Acosta: any regrets, why doesn’t he know WHO decided to leave Iraq- who made that agreement. He knows better
President Obama is schooling the toddlers.
yes, as he always must. :)
/smh/ EVERY TIME PBO does a presser, he has to EDUCATE members of the @WHpresscorps!!! They ALWAYS, ALWAYS seem clueless in every situation— Vick C. (@sonamie) June 19, 2014
frankly he ought to be running the world, he makes so much sense. :)
President Obama must laugh at these idiots.
I love My President. That.Is.All.
oh me too, hf :)
wow they’re just beggin POTUS to say something to undermine Malaki, how would that benefit anyone?
The old adage: Rome was not built in a Day is still applicable where US WHPC and the Media are concerned. They have a terrible bad habit…..uneducated, bias and living a double standard where Intelligence and factually based Tutorial from president Barack Obama is concerned.
Calm. Cool. Collected. Professorial. Presidential. Honest.
WHPC can’t handle all of that, hence their small statues..
Breaking from @AP: Prosecutors say Wisconsin Gov. Walker at center of 'criminal scheme' over campaign fundraising #politics #GOP— David Crary (@CraryAP) June 19, 2014
teehee…..bye bye Scott
Ha, media/repubs aren’t going to get their war in Iraq… Thank YOU, President Obama.
Oops didn’t work :(
Once again…….POTUS treating Us and the world as adults.
When will Our Collective Growing up matches with his?
Pundits in DC/NY are just too slow.
Thank Goodness for TOD ;)
Anyone noticed he didn’t call on any of the usual jackals?
Like a BAWSE
Seems to me not ONE of the #WHpresscorps members who ask questions ever bring any ‘knowledge’ to the table! They are always asking questions from a frame that reveals they do not retain any info from one day to the next or one question to the next. God, it would frustrate me to have to deal with that time after time! It’s like trying to teach a sieve!
Of course, PBO was an excellent lecturer/professor/teacher today. His calm, patiend, informed and informative approach was ….superb, IMO!
