    I’m bringing this from the previous thread. It was originally meant as a bet to UT – but since I haven’t heard back from her, it’s an open bet for whoever is interested.

    I’m betting that the Giants will win. I think PBO is with me on that one too. So for those who are betting on the Patriots here goes:

    If Patriots lose, you have to write a short open love letter to Mitt, Rick, Newt and Paul singing their praises, expressing your love/admiration for them – The letter has to be posted here by 11:30PM tonight.

    If the Giants lose, I’ll have to come up with a love letter for the GOP candidates…

      Ooooooooh Hopefruit you are ON like a sucker! I like the Giants when they play other teams but when it comes to my PATRIOTS, no dice. I’m taking that bet. You’d better be penning that love note to the GOP Clowns right now.

      Goooooooooooooooooooooo PATRIOTS!!!!!!!! Suck it Giants!

      • February 5, 2012 at 7:45 pm

        Yeah, I agree Susanne. Here’s my template for either of the contestants. I tried to meet all the love/admiration criteria truthfully. 😉

        Dear Mitt, Rick, Newt and Paul,
        I wanted to take this time to commend you on your 2012 campaigning. I feel sure you will all go down in history for running the most unbelievable primary ever! I believe there is no way the current president could have run a campaign such as yours. Thank you ALL for shedding such a powerful light on President Obama so that more and more people can see the obvious contrast between him and the GOP. I truly admire the work you have done in this area.

        Finally, I must say this letter comes from my heart. I absolutely ♥ LOVE ♥ the way you all use words. You have all made your opinion of the American people so clear that if we do not reward you accordingly, the shame is on us! Keep up your efforts and good luck to all of you in your life after campaigning.

      “Sure, I like anyone else wish for more action from the President on many fronts. For instance I wish the President had not been so in love with the idea that we could be moving into a post-partisan world of cooperation. ”

      Oh, not Frank too! I wish Frank would have stated all those “many fronts” he wished PBO would have had more action on. I’m a fan of Frank from 2008 but he is contradicting himself throughout this piece. You can’t have this:

      “Many of Obama’s liberal allies have been disillusioned, too. When Steve Jobs last met the President, in February, 2011, he was most annoyed by Obama’s pessimism—he seemed to dismiss every idea Jobs proffered. ‘The president is very smart,’ Jobs told his biographer, Walter Isaacson. ‘But he kept explaining to us reasons why things can’t get done. It infuriates me.” ”

      And then have Jobs himself frankly tell PBO his Apple jobs were never coming back to these shores, and then be upset with PBO because he dismisses your ideas.

      “So I’ve been grateful that a man of integrity, brains and kindness and reasonable moderation (not to mention moderate progressive religious faith) is leading America.”

      There go those contradictory words…..reasonable “moderation”.

      “The President keeps proving himself smarter than his detractors. More power to him.”

      Exactly right Frank !

      “Given what was on his plate when he took office and the fact that we’re successfully struggling out of both recession and 2 war — and succeeding — President Obama is one of the best of the American presidents already. His second term will consolidate that verdict and bodes greatness as his legacy.”

      Hopefully Frank will re-read his own words, and appreciate PBO for who he is, and not what we want him to be. Once you’re in for someone, that someone must have impressed you in some manner to respect his intellect, and not play back seat driver.

      ” I’m NOT saying that any president is above rebuke when you think he’s wrong.” Me either, Frank. But I return to the fourth quote…PBO keeps proving himself smarter than his detractors. That’s enough for me. Quiet down Frank.

        Green jasmine tea with a bit of stevia…

        • February 5, 2012 at 8:08 pm

          O Pamela, are you a stevia fan? I’ve been using it (liquid) as my primary sweetener for about 6 months now. At first, I would ‘cheat’ and add other sugar, but now I can handle it on its own 90% of the time. It’s pricey though.

          • 66 Pamela
            February 5, 2012 at 8:24 pm

            Oh, yes, vcprezofan2, been using it for many years. Have tried all kinds, some not so good, terrible aftertaste …:( but the best one I’ve found about 2 years ago is KAL brand (powder) from SuperSupplements. It comes in a couple different sizes, but I buy the big one for value. Then I put a lesser amount into an airtight daily use container and leave the big one closed up tight in the cupboard. It costs about $15, but lasts nearly a year, as 1/ the tiny scoop is plenty for me. The liquid I found a little harder to control the amount. I really like that stevia has 0 carbs, though I am not diabetic.

            • February 5, 2012 at 8:56 pm

              I actually tried an organic powder first but the after taste was so strong that I never finished the bag, and almost gave up on stevia. I mentioned this the next time I was in the health food store, and was luckily introduced to the liquid. Maybe, I’ll see if we have KAL here next time .

    Superbowl discussion with F. Lauer and PBO begins interview and then transitions to interational relations topic of Israel/Iran conflict and I marvel at the juxtaposition of their detailed talk of the talent on the ‘game’ on grass with the detailed talk by US ‘Quarterback’, PBO talking about US team strategy to beat Iran. in the ‘real-world’ game of life between evil Iran and rest of world….brillant!!

    What a clown lauer is! did he really ask multiple times for a prediction and if Barack’s young girls have posters of some football player up in the white house? 10 and 13 year old girls? Of the the president of the united states?
    That’s how he chose to spend a good chunk of a 5 minute interview with the president? What an embarrassment to anyone who works at NBC!

      I know he was obsessive. “Do the Obama ladies think Brady is hot? Do they have posters in their room? What about Justin Bieber?” Ummm the President was probably rolling his eyes so hard (mentally of course). How stupid.

        i cant imagine asking any dad, let alone the president of the united states on freaking live tv with tens of millions of viewers, if his 10 year old daughter has the hots for anyone. The more i think about it, the weirder it becomes, and i think lauer is the one with the hots for this player and was getting his jollies asking about this, multiple times..

          The more I think about it, the more I think it was a freaky question also. For one thing, Brady is closer in age to their dad than to the 2 daughters. Like they would have a Brady poster on their bedroom walls! Odd to the max.

            February 5, 2012 at 7:16 pm

            I think Lauer wanted to find out whether the girls have boyfriends – otherwise he wouldn’t have brought Beiber into the conversation. It’s been on the media’s mind ever since the first child turned 13. It’s a stupid obsession. They are still children – there will be plenty of time for “romances” in the coming years.

              I’m surprised he didn’t ask “Boxers or briefs?” Nothing about anything important. I did like the questions about Iran. The President was great on that “I can’t give you the details of our conversations, but..” As if Matt has such a high security clearance that the President would slip and tell him anything of importance . I would love to interview our President. I would ask really what the public wants to know.

        • February 5, 2012 at 6:52 pm

          Yes – that was inappropriate, given the young ages of the little girls, and the fact that this is the President of the United States. Lauer is a fool.

      And they wonder why he goes around them. On Reliable Sources today Howard Kurtz posed that question from a Politico article last week, “Is the White House trying to make journalists obsolete?” I was surprised that one of the panelists actually said voters ask better questions than journalists because they aren’t concerned with process. That same panelist also acknowledged that they know PBO does not like the press. They talked about the Super Bowl interview and another panelist didn’t have a problem with it because PBO is a sports fan.

      There was one guy that seemed like a right winger and suggested PBO made news at the Google hangout because he seemed not to know about the VISA situation posed by that woman with the unemployed husband. So, I guess he’s saying if the right can find something to pound PBO over when he does that type of interview then it’s fine with him. He added that other presidents have been more accessible than PBO. All in all, I don’t think the panelists really took the bait to complain as much as you might have guessed they would. Maybe they do most of their complaining to each other off camera. Jonathan Martin did say he didn’t think the public cared if PBO went around the press but that they do want the President to be held accountable and he believed the media were best equipped to do that. I beg to differ, however.

      • February 5, 2012 at 5:55 pm

        What’s the point of an accessible president if the only thing he tells you is a bunch of lies? I’m sure the press think Bush was accessible, the whole time he was lying this country into a deficit and a farce of a war. President Obama is plenty accessible to the people.

      I think you guys are too hard on Lauer. 😉 He’s trying to make chitchat, trying to link it to football, and he’s obviously not too ‘deep’ a thinker. Give him a little credit, at least, for not leading with a GOP candidate related question. Most of these guys function ‘best’ when they can throw in ‘mitt/newt/ron/rick said/did, what is your rebuttal?’

      Did anyone else think that was a snarky question? What was PBO supposed to say? No. I don’t deserve a second term but I saw the opposition and figured why not?

      I also think the President should have pushed back against the premise that Americans aren’t feeling better about the economy. Public confidence is up. Retail sales are up, an indicator of how people feel about spending. The whole premise was wrong.

      Now I see why Matt never moved beyond his a.m. job into more substantive and newsworthy interviews.

    A comment onFfrank Schaeffer’s piece. He was completely accurate in saying Norm Ornstein was from the conservative American Enterprise Institute. That is indeed true, but Norm Ornstein is no conservative. I don’t know why they haven’t fired him yet (thank God) . I remember him from the early days of progressive radio when he was a regular guest on Al Franken’s show.

    The entire piece is a must-read. Here’s a favorite paragraph of mine:

    “About 6 months into his presidency lots of bloggers at HP and elsewhere seemed to run out of patience not just with President Obama but with reality itself. President Obama “disappointed” them. I stuck with the President because I believed then, and believe now, that he is smarter, kinder, more reliable and morally superior to his critics let alone to the political alternatives. I also know that the presidency is not as powerful as many people seem to think it is including many liberal commentators who claim to live in a fact-based world. I’m grateful if any president can get anything good done at all.”

    It’s linked to up thread, but here’s the link again:

    Today as I watched the Lauer interview and read the Schaffer article – I decided to make up a little list (that you all can add to).

    This year is better because:

    We did not have to listen to Bill O’Reilly disrespect the President and interrupt him over 40 times during the Superbowl Interview
    Sarah Palin has stopped talking (or the media has stopped listening)
    Glen Beck’s show has been cancelled
    We aren’t running against Huntsman

    This blog has imporved – we whine and freak out less, tweet more, share resources, encourage each other and make a difference.

    Just like President Obama said – we have much more to do, but we are making progress.

    Well, our President, by not calling the game (picking a team) and saying he couldn’t call it … may have called it as “one heck of a game!” 9-9 at the first half!

    Hey guys,

    First time posting here,sorry to hijack the thread. Remember that lady who started out “I am obamacare”? Well there is a tumblr website that is posting anyone’s stories on Obamacare to give it more than just numbers but a face.

    Its not my website, but I talked to the blogger and he is desperately looking to get attention to it and have more people write their stories. Right now there are 5 stories.

    Im looking to spread the word, if chipsticks can hear me or if anyone can tell me how to contact chipsticks please let me know.

    In the meantime check out the website yourself.

      My hubby and I (who are both Catholic) talked about this coming home from Church this morning. We are both from huge Catholic families and have many Catholic friends who all basically just 🙄 at this fake controversy.

      I wish that all of my TOD fam could have the likes of a Martin O’Malley governing their states.

    Good ad by Clint Eastwood at halftime!
    Did you see it?

    Ok folks – the Detroit commercial with Clint Eastwood is nice, but in reality, Detroit is 90% black and I only saw out of all the people in the commercial, one black man and one black child.

    Come on people!

      that’s so funny all three of us must have posted this at the same time. I was just thinking that the reason those Motor City car companies are doing as well as they are is because of PBO!

      Some of these ad dynamo people need a refresher course in diversity!

  57. February 5, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    OK did you guys catch Clint in the Motor City commercial “It’s Halftime in America”?

  58. February 5, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    Well, so far it’s turning out to be a low-scoring game, like I thought it would be.

    I’m considering the Clint Eastwood Chrysler ad the kick-off of the Obama campaign. Yeah!
    Seriously, every GM or Chrysler ad reinforces our President’s wisdom in saving those companies.

    ok – just watched part of the halftime show – heads up – we’re in for another FCC MOMENT – where the dancer on the right flipped off the camera and THEN the booth did a FULL FRAME BLUR.

    TOO. LATE.

    Wonder what the rightwing outrage will be this time? Middle Finger Malfunction? On FCC fine of how much?

    What those of us missed that don’t watch MTP


    Good points if you ask me!

    Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA):

    “I’m a Catholic. I think the Constitution got it right: Protect religious liberty. But if my church wants to start being an insurance company, if my church wants to be an Internet company, it doesn’t have the same religious freedoms to discriminate against women, not letting them become priests. And it shouldn’t have the same rights as it has as a church to do business. So if it wants to be in the business of providing health insurance, it should do what every other health insurer must do under our laws.”

    Rachel Maddow:

    “When you want to become a health insurance provider, you must follow the rules of providing health insurance… cover contraception.”

    “You can try to make this an issue of, ‘Oh Democrats hate religion’… This is about providing health insurance, and the Republican party is waging war on contraception…”
