    I’m watching Lawrence (online) and his review of Gates book is positive in regards to PBO. Seems as usual the media takes everything about PBO well out of context. He be attacking the WHPC (except for Chuckie – can’t call out your own – despite they sooooooo need it)

    Loved TOD’s coverage of Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly today.

    I hope everyone had a chance to see her tweet today.

    So glad to hear that her grueling physical therapy is making a good difference for her.

    IMO, Gabby is the most well rounded politician ever.

    How’s this for a bio?

    A quirky grandfather, with a Mexican (lives in Mexico City) half-brother, who attends a tiny all-female California college, transfers to Cornell, spends her Fulbright scholar years in Mexico and then lands a cushy consulting job with Price Waterhouse in NYC. All before she was 27 years old.

    At 27, she returns to Tucson to become president of her grandfather’s tire company, runs for local office in 2000, meets her future (astronaut) husband in China in 2003 and then runs for Congress in 2006. In 2007, she and Mark Kelly have a fairy tale wedding.

    From the NYT, a week after the Tuscan massacre.

      That everyone had access to the care she has received, the ACA a starting point – Gabby is such a fighter – her recovery highlights what can be done

      The evil that was done to her was such a travesty – yet she has turned it into something beyond everyone’s hopes.

    Lawrence O’Donnel rewrite tonight was fantastic

    No one is left behind in Obama country. I’m off to sweet dreams. Or night mares. . .
    I’m trying to set up my new Mac Book Pro. I’m so stupid I’m surprised I’m not a Rethuglican.

    you have got to see it….

    OHHH MY Goooooodnesss!!!

      I refer to the WHPC as the Hyper and irritable toddlers at the WH that Jay Carney must school everyday.

        They also are of the opinion if you ask the same question in 6 different ways you will stop getting the same answer. Toddlers do that alot when they want a cookie just before dinner.

    There once was a governor named Chris
    Whose politics were a bit hit and miss
    He sent a bridge traffic surveyor
    To bully the Dem. Fort Lee mayor
    And his presidential chances were dismissed

    I love Mr. Pete Souza’s photo of two of my favorites fineeeeeeeeeeeee men, President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. I can light my Warm Vanilla Sugar Candle, and put on the quiet music of a wonderful string quartet performing ‘ Relaxing Classical.’

    Everyone have a wonderful evening. Thanks for all of the beautiful information today, Chips, UT, LL, Bobfr, and all of the brilliant writers here. We have such a great TOD family. Chips, you are such a beautiful soul. ((((((Love you))))))). LL, I am sipping a mellow red tonight. For the heart and approved by my cardiologist. HZ

    Folks getting upset because Christie is called on his weight (NY Daily News Heading) “Fat Chance Now Chris”

    Reality is – Christie is very much overweight (from one who knows about such things). The names the right have laid on PBO are not only 10 times worse – but have no basis in fact whatsoever. Gov Christie has earned his headlines.

    I finally read what the Mayor had to say about #BridgeGhazi … may have been posted before:

      Christie’s gang even went after the Mayor’s ethnicity in the emails, apparently … how Republican of them.

      won’t click on a politoco article, but right in that first sentence they’re already helping distance copter christie from his naughty “aides.” people’s understanding of news stories is comes mostly from that kind of framing, rather than the details and facts. i’m starting to get a feeling with the media’s help, he won’t suffer any repurcussions from this. as long as you toe the libertarian/republican lines, you can get away with literally anything in eyes of “the news.”

          are there some directly from christie himself? if not, he’ll work out some deal with an aide(s) to take the fall for them. he/republican party will make it up to them eventually. scott walker in wisconsin did that already with some of his peeps.

          • 50 jacquelineoboomer
            January 9, 2014 at 12:26 am

            My guess is he’s already done all that … the deals were in, from the beginning. We’ll have to see how it all plays out. Fingers crossed! (The Scott Walker reminder is, of course, why we can never count on any of this type stuff taking anybody down.)

            He has not yet publicly fired or suspended the lady who was sending the emails – she may be objecting to being the “fall person”

      • 53 jacquelineoboomer

        True, but I’m hoping the emails that surfaced help keep it alive.

          a wild card in this though, is if the local reporters can keep finding more stuff. hopefully they’ll keep pushing. the majority of actual journalism anymore comes from local outlets, especially ones not owned by the big 5 corps that own most of the national/world media.

      wonder if that text crawl at the bottom was going to say how great fundraising has been for the hillary super pac. that would make sense since whenever i’ve been near a tv with fox on recently, they’re pushing the hillary as inevitable thing. again, i always ask hillary supporting obama backers, why does fox, huff post, newt, and so on promote hillary so much? there’s a reason these obama and elizabeth warren haters are at the same time pushing hillary.

        They want to force Hillary on us as though we don’t have choices to make. Here comes Hillary, and with that, here comes Bill and Monica Lewinsky. Do we have to prepare to live with this crap all over again? How dreadful-can I yell : O!

          With you all the way and yelling, too! It’s way too early (as in – all last year) for those folks to be forcing Hillary’s inevitability on us … the Romneys thought they were next in line, too, as in “our turn.” Yuck! If Hillary runs, she’ll have to run with the baggage, and that’s her choice. Not my choice. #Ridin’WithBiden (if he wants it!)

    Good early Thursday morning to everyone, the TOD family that never sleeps,
    I do hope that everyone is having a great day, evening and night.

    I saw Steve S., the republican strategist for MSNBC. Ok, here is what MSM is going to try and do, link President Obama “not true” IRS scandal to Bridge gate. Steve S. just said; well President Obama didn’t know about the IRS scandal, and there is no evidence that Christie knew anything about what the “other” individuals did.

    They are writing the script; lump the two together and the people will believe that Christie, like President Obama, didn’t know anything. This is BS.BS..BS and they are trying to lie Christie “a _ _” out of this. His karma is back in his face BIG TIME. I will never forget; welcomed President Obama when he needed help with Sandy, and as soon as the repukes complained about him smooging with the President, he didn’t hesitate to get on the channels and speak ill of the President; he is not a leader , he doesn’t know what he is doing, Mitt is the better candidate.

    Well, well, well, Christie-you are out, whether you like it or not. I hope your head explodes as you build your mountain of lies.

    Who’s your daddy now? President Obama is alive to see some of his enemies become his “footstool (Psalm 23).”

    Who is occupying the White House? I will tell you if you don’t know-it’s the “greatest” President that this country has ever had, and you will “NEVER” sit behind the oval desk. Wake up Democrats, you voted for the clown bully Christie and you got what you wanted. When will you hold true to the democratic cause? A mother to someone, a grandmother to others, she was a human being. 91 years of age and she is gone, and you Christie will forever carry her name on your shoulders, now go and lift that. She will be Christie’s Willie Horton forever.

      Thanks so much for sharing that for us, tonight, Cindy. I agree with every word. I guess we’ll never know if the 91-year-old woman would have passed anyway, that day, but that’s the very reason we can’t let Christie get away with any of this.

        Good morning jacquelineoboomer!
        How are you? I see that some us never sleeps : ),

        I see Christie reaping what he has been sowing, and now the chickens are coming home to hatch. He is a nasty individual; superior to everyone else-in his mind. I have seen him belittle people, as if they are not human. Well, I don’t make any apologies when I say, I hope he goes down. He would do the same thing as President if he had a chance but now the right wing repukes will never let him out of the gate. Can you imagine this nasty evil individual representing this country on world stage? neither can I.

    Goodnight, TODville. Wonder which Republican will mess up his/her career and “reputation” tomorrow? Here’s hoping! Wasn’t it just earlier in the week that Liz Cheney went down? And now Christie’s in deep doo-doo? And Gates is being portrayed as a sour old man? Lookin’ like a banner year.

    Although I have good insurance through my employer ( United Healthcare), I am extremely grateful to our President for implementing Obamacare. I raised three sons by myself and know the importance of having coverage. My middle son is self-employed and had to cancel his coverage through Blue Cross/Blue Shield for himself and his wife because his premiums escalated out of control. The policy also excluded preexisting conditions. He kept coverage on the kids. He is now able to cover all of them for half as much as he was paying for his two kids.

    Also, many people do not realize that their existing policies have improved because of the law. I went the the doctor today for my annual physical and there was no copayment for the first time ever.

      Jackie 4 Obama,
      This is really an awesome story, this is what truth looks like. Thank you for sharing. Congratulation to your son, you bestowed values on him and he is passing it on to his kids. Who says that single parents can’t do an awesome job? O yeah, the repukes.

      Good night everyone. Blessings to you all on this beautiful Thursday morning, don’t allow anyone to still your joy today : ) .

    Just checked the videos for Lawrence O’Donnell’s 8 Dec 2014 program. He eviscerates Chrisie, Jon Karl and the #WHPC. Thought I’d let him know his efforts are appreciated …


    Yes We Can

    … time for some rest … wishing the TOD Community a fine 9 Jan 2014 …
