    It’s become almost this goofy. No surprise that Andrea Mitchell is acting kind of peeved and snotty about the news of this capture “all these years later”, as she just put it. These jokers don’t even bother me any more. I think it’s sad that this is the state of our present news media, but they’ve made themselves insignificant and laughable, subjects of ridicule.

      Hmm? ALL These years?

      Andrea is suffering from the 5 stages of Grief. She can’t keep up. PBO keeps messing up with their limited minds.

      9-11-12 to 9-11-13 = One Year. Today is 6-17-14. Over two months remaining for the wicked fool, Andrea, to mathematically call it YEARS.

      A true Journalist would look at past records of other POTUS’ and then compare and contrast before rendering a pronouncement. Shame on the ugly face…..yes…..YOU…..Andrea Mitchell.

      Oh but CNN released some poll yesterday which said Hillary out poll Obama on every issue, including foreign policy and healthcare. Shows you how bogus that poll was. Hillary who supported the invasion of Iraq, who tried to pass healthcare,but failed.

        resuit of Media bashing the President 24/7. So people are prepared to believe that the “new” one will do things better.

        If Hillary becomes president, her poll numbers will go down too. Although, I have to say, I’ve grown pretty cynical about how the media covers presidents. After twenty years of “schmoozing” the big powerful elite , this time the Clintons may be “protected” by the media, as any republican president is. (It took them a LONG time before turning on Bush 43, and it was only after a series of very bad and inefficient governing.)

        I don’t believe it. Everyone I talk to regarding Hillary says #nomoreClintons.

        Hillary will never ever ever be President of the US and you can take that to the bank.

      GM, my Chips and TOD family. He is always working to do what he has told the fools that he would do. They ain’t seen nothing yet!! These foolish people just will never listen to him. PBO is going to keeping working on behalf of the American people and the world.

      I will always continue to carry close to my heart(even in its weak state for now) as Bobfr reminds us daily.#TRUSTBARCK.

      Thank you, Mr. President for continuing to be the best POTUS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! {{{{{{{{{{{{ Love my TOD Family.}}}}}}}}}}

      I am in pain this morning, but have things to get done, and knowing that we are and always will be in good hands because there is a faith within all of us that will sustain us all. Believe as you desire, but believe in the inner most goodness of your core. We Will Be Fine. HZ

      Yes, Nerdy, they really should. He clears his head and get all of the business he has done or about to get done straight up and down. Love my POTUS and all those who are good, decent, hardworking, and loyal to him in his presidency. Truth Bearers. HZ

      PBO is a true American Hero. He rights the wrongs of the World!

      While naysayers are yapping and others doubting him, he quietly takes care of business.

      I pity any American who does not fully support and appreciate this man. It will be too late when he is no longer in office.

      Nena, we are on the same wavelength. I was just about the post this article. This will have the Fox gasbags dazed and confused.


      In 2007, Qumu was released from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and sent to Libya, where he was detained. The Libyan government released him in 2008.

      He and two other men, militia leaders Ahmed Abu Khattala and Seif Allah bin Hassine, will be identified as “specially designated global terrorists,” a determination that allows U.S. officials to freeze their financial assets and bar American citizens and companies from doing business with them.

    Seriously, Thom Hartmann, there is no reason for progressive talk to even ‘argue’ with the guy launching the new Newsmax TV network, whose claim to fame is the book, “The Truth about Vince Foster”. I know Thom likes to ‘debate’ the wingnuts but we have precious little air time to waste plugging yet another RWNJ TV network.

      THIS! I heard Conan include this in his monologue last night and it totally depressed me until this A.M. when I opened TOD and saw all of the good news.

      First, this President has cleaned up the messes of both GWB AND Bill Clinton (DADT, DOMA, repeal of Glass-Steagall, etc…). He has been better on Foreign Policy, National Security, Diplomacy, the Economy, civil rights, food justice, environment… the list goes on… AND got Healthcare done when no other President could.

      If he was white they would already be carving him into Mt. Rushmore.

      Also, I get why conservatives don’t like how successful he is because, even if he does stuff they like, it makes their brand look inefficient. However, the fact that every liberal in the world (including the far left) is not singing this man’s praises can ONLY be because he is brilliant while black!!

      Second, I think this poll was probably done to get people more into the idea of Hillary running. It’s probably totally manipulated.

    Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) sent an email to supporters Tuesday that advertised a drawing to give away a free AR-15 rifle.

    The two-time presidential candidate’s political organization, Campaign for Liberty, is giving away a “brand new Colt LE6920MP-B AR-15 equipped with a red dot sight” in honor of the Second Amendment. The giveaway also boasts that the firearm will come with Magpul stock, pistol grip, handguard, vertical grip and back-up sight.

    Prospective contestants have until 5 p.m. ET on July 3 to enter the drawing at Campaign for Liberty’s website.

      When I was first learning about Barack Obama prior to his 2008 run for President, I read his books Audacity of Hope and Dreams from my Father. This all happened after I saw him on Oprah on his Audacity book tour. I was so impressed with what he said and his obvious intelligence and sincerity that I looked up his legislative records in IL and in the US Senate besides reading his books. I came away only more impressed. When I compared his legislative accomplishments to Hillary’s I was floored at the extensive list of authored and coauthored significant legislation in his column as compared with the short list of expected Jr Senator post office namings and team celebration type action Hillary’s list contained. She worked hard, but did what was expected of her. He continues that trait into his Presidency. Quietly and tirelessly working away to get done what he set out to get done even faced with incredible opposition.

    Okay….I get it.

    When one undermines PBO…..be it the right, MSM or the emoprogs……and he unabashedly keeps his eyes on his job, delivering and moving FORWARD! The angrier and uglier these wicked soulless fools have become.

    They expose themselves more with: Hatred. Unhinged. Bitterness. Dysfunctional.

    Thanks to filibuster reform:

    “Today, Judge Darrin Gayles became the first openly gay African-American man to serve on the federal bench. In addition, Judge Staci Michelle Yandle, an openly gay African-American woman, and Judge Salvador Mendoza have dedicated their careers to fighting for the rights of individual plaintiffs and indigent criminal defendants.”

      “These votes—one of which was unanimous and one that only had four in opposition—were also dragged out by Republicans as long as possible, with forced cloture votes on all of them. This is the latest Republican tactic for making sure the Democratic leadership gets as little accomplished as possible. “
