      The U.S. media is just as sick as Dick Cheney. All they want is some liar like Cheney to come on their show and disrespect, trash President Obama.

      If they were going to hammer Cheney I would have no problem with this. Something tells me that won’t happen and all he’s getting is a platform to spout his idiocy with fear of zero pushback. To Cheney it’s going to be like Meet The Press with Tim Russert all over again.

    G’morning Chips, TOD, lurkers, everyone! Happy Saturday everyone, and thanks Chips for the wonderful R & S round-up.

    Amk I thought I bid you good night on the last thread (even though you didn’t appreciate my kind words). Why first on the R &S? Congrats and enjoy your pizza. 🙂

    GM Todville,

    Love that this thread’s front page is opened and closed with beautiful FLOTUS photos.

    My heart is warmed by the photo of FLOTUS and the girls with a beaming Nelson Mandela. I’m so glad that they were able to visit Africa when they did.

    JER posted this on the Early Bird thread:

    The banner front page headline on the print version of our local newspaper (alas, not available on Newseum.com) today is:
    County unemployment rate drops to 5.9%.

    This reminds of how things were in the mid-aughts before GWB’s disastrous policies caught up with the financial world in the Sept 2008 financial meltdown. I’ve mentioned before that EVERY retail store I’ve been to recently has a NOW HIRING sign in their windows (and I’ve done a lot to stimulate the local economy recently, LOL). With so many businesses hiring, I’m getting a sense of desperation on their part for new employees.

    Looking forward to recovery summer 2014, onward toward #LandslideDems2014, despite the best (aka unanimous and feeble) efforts by the GOP propaganda machine (aka the MSM)

    Happy first day of summer, everyone. Sorry to hear about the relentless rain in Minnesota — please send your excess to California.

    • June 21, 2014 at 11:06 am

      Two additional thoughts…

      LOVE FLOTUS’ easy elegance in the first photo — such a glorious role-model to all the world’s citizens.

      CA unemployment rate drop is not a fluke. In the late aughts, MSM/GOP proclaimed in lockstep that CA was ungovernable. Let’s take a look at the actual states that are ungovernable — the ones “governed” by GOP governors and/or state legislatures, shall we?

    Good morning. What a nasty shock, to be enjoying a picture of beautiful, sweet Danny, and one slight scroll down: BAM: A massively inflated MAGGOT stuffed in a suit with glasses perched on it’s folds. BLECH. GACK!! Must go…………..RINSE EYES with CLOROX.

    Hey everybody,

    Can someone give me a mini tutorial on how to post a pix with a tweet. For example, if I wanted to post picture of FLOTUS and the girls with Mandela or the flyer for the equal pay. Thanks.

    Dick Cheney has a perpetual nasty snarl on his face. He’s incapable of any other facial expression. His soul is ugly.
