      Well, he’s a dumb ass, but he didn’t stick his finger in the President’s face like MY dumb ass Gov. did!!

      GM from my world – I like the little like stars :) and I like your tweet – the governor still thinks the glasses make him intelligent.

        donna dem made a good point: for the lurkers, the ‘like’ button makes it easy for them to participate.

        And then I wouldn’t be throwing my creaky tablet on the sofa because it’s so slow and I HATE typing on those baby keyboards. Would make my late night TOD experience less stressful, and I may actually get some sleep.

          Hi 57 – cause we keep separate hours I don’t often “catch up” with you on TOD – but I read and agree with so many of your posts – I also find many of my discussions with Mr 99 are very similar to your discussions with Mr 57 :). The former has slowly learned to ask me about the news from US rather than tell me what the RW press is saying.

          Enjoy your stress free evening!

    Was tutoring today and I come back home to a new toy? Stars! I think we should have Nena’s martini glasses instead of stars….or were those satellite dishes? I’ll go with martini glasses:) Love my PBO! Mr. TexASS himself came to meet the President? Hummmm….

      Df, you made me laugh. I came home from having my tooth extracted and feel like hell. Saw the stars and thought it was me hallucinating. I missed what they’re for.

        :) So glad a put a little smile on your face :) You WILL feel better soon…I say, “NAP TIME!!” Then, when you get up, have yourself a little cocktail and suck your dinner through a straw and come here to read… Lovely! Sorry about your tooth…good news, it’s gone now:)

        Take the drugs they prescribed you even if you are feeling no pain. Do this for at least the 1st 12 hours. You’ll feel better tomorrow.

        It will get better jackie – and now it is gone – which is good. Good thoughts for feeling so much better in the next day or two & I agree with Donna – take the meds – until you don’t need them any more.

      Hi df – I wake up to these little stars and did wonder if I was seeing things!

    Thank you for the new post Nerdy (though I notice that it was posted egg.sag.lee as I was making a little comment!) :'(

      6:45 PM EDT – President Obama Makes a Statement on the Humanitarian Situation at the Southwest Border – http://www.whitehouse.gov/live

    • 26 99ts
      July 9, 2014 at 5:42 pm

      TPM likes the anti PBO language – Crisis from TPM, humanitarian situation from the White House. How words make a difference. Tomorrow it will have become a scandal and the next day the worst ever scandal of this administration. Pffft

      I am so very glad PBO has a heart – unlike the current Oz administration who hide the very existence of refugees while they use the navy to ship them away from our shores.

    John Kerry: U.S. diplomatic efforts undermined by Senate’s failure to confirm ambassadors expediently

    ———————

    “The United States continues to operate without a complete diplomatic toolbox to exert our leadership and advance our security and economic interests across the globe, because a broken Senate confirmation process has left us without permanent ambassadors in 40 countries.”

    Delays by the Senate “compromises U.S. national security” and has impacted counter-terrorism operations abroad.

      If they are not doing the job of the country and doing the business of its citizens, then they should not be re elected. This can put our country at risk. Boot them out and make them have to go actually EARN A LIVING.

    What a marvelous joy and relief to have TOD where the story gets gotten, the truth gets spoken and shared, the spirits get lifted, the sorry outfits get called out, the laughs get lifted up, and this dear, kind, cool, witty, righteous community gets reminded that we are in a good place filled with good people doing good things in a good way, led by the best US President Ever in the History of This Nation. As Bobfr says: Trust Barack. Thankyou, Chips. Thank you NerdyW. Thank you BT’s. Don’t stop ever.

    Hi Chips,

    As was the case the last time the ‘Like’ feature was activated, it causes Firefox to freak out. Just thought you’d want to know!

    • 33 desertflower
      July 9, 2014 at 5:39 pm

      I can’t use this feature for some reason. I don’t want to piss off the WP gods…I will just come out and say I like something if I do. Sorry, family…

      • July 9, 2014 at 5:43 pm

        Have no idea what’s going on, df, but if I refresh the page more than 3 times it completely freaks out and locks my browser so I have to quite the application and restart. Same thing happened the last time this ‘feature’ was activated.

        • 35 desertflower
          July 9, 2014 at 5:45 pm

          OK Chips! Bob and I aren’t gonna use this:) Not worth screwing up my “puter for…. I LIKE THEM ALL!!

      No way, No How….No Border speech. POTUS is at least 500 miles away from the Border…… the latest report.

    • 55 anniebella
      July 9, 2014 at 5:58 pm

      Will the statement be at the border? And Sportsgirl, Halperin and Todd aren’t the only Republicans who can’t stand the fact that a black man is more successful then they are. And that a black family is in their White House. They don’t mind us cleaning the outside and inside at the WH, cooking and everything. They just don’t want us living in their. Being the President and First Lady.

    Americans Have Spent Enough Money On A Broken Plane To Buy Every Homeless Person A Mansion

    Just days before its international debut at an airshow in the United Kingdom, the entire fleet of the Pentagon’s next generation fighter plane — known as the F-35 II Lightning, or the Joint Strike Fighter — has been grounded, highlighting just what a boondoggle the project has been. With the vast amounts spent so far on the aircraft, the United States could have worked wonders, including providing every homeless person in the U.S. a $600,000 home.

    Wrap your heads around this.

      Our govt has signed up to buy a heap of planes from the US while they start to charge those on limited incomes a copay for every visit to a doctor, reduce UI for young people, and generally expect the poorer in our society to pay for said planes

    This game is thrilling, unlike yesterday where the only comment I could have made was OMG so I held my tongue.
    It better be settled before PBO’s speech. (I am rooting for Argentina for no better reason than that I want our hemisphere represented in the finals.)

    I am a little sorry I never appreciated soccer. Missed David Beckham, for one example.
    OTOH at my age a new fascination is welcome.

    Nerdy’s tweets will be enjoyed post-game and PBO!!!!

    “Beneath all the false rhetoric about debt, deficit, government control and everything else, there has always been one, and only one, reason for the existence of the Tea Party: race. What has often been lost, however, is that it is not simply Barack Obama’s race that has driven the Tea Party nuts (although it certainly has), it’s the ethnic makeup of the diverse coalition Obama was able to build twice to decimate the two great white horses (essentially literally) that the Republican party put up against him.”

  30. July 9, 2014 at 6:16 pm

    Ah, twitter

  31. July 9, 2014 at 6:20 pm

    I’m guessing POTUS is going to dare Congress to fund his border request in his statement coming up. They’ve already refused so it’s good for him to go on record as proposing a solution but once again Congress obstructing.

      You made a bad choice RP trying to show out with our President. This is NOT going to end well for Gov. Perry. I’m glad our President Obama is always able to find some joy in the distasteful moments. Seriously, I wonder what the smiles and grins are for.
