A Tweet Or Two

****

****

****

When you proudly proclaim to be a “Clinton Democrat” after all the scandals the Clintons were involved in; but run away from the question of whether you voted for President Barack Obama, you have to admit it’s not his name you’re running away from. It’s the color of his skin. We see you, Candidate Grimes.

    I cannot help but laugh and point and Grimes. She spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to distance herself from the black guy and LOOK what happened! The GOP is tying her to President Obama anyway and the press is also piling on. Stop doing and saying things that won’t win/cost you votes from either side.

    Democratic Party is getting browner, how long are we supposed to put up with these campaign tactics from red state Dems?

    • October 11, 2014 at 1:28 pm

      I don’t know if she thinks her fellow Kentuckians are so racist that she can’t even be seen in the same time zone as PBO or that she really feels that way herself. Maybe both. But whatever the case she made this race a lot closer than it had to be.

      • October 11, 2014 at 1:32 pm

        “I don’t know if she thinks her fellow Kentuckians are so racist that she can’t even be seen in the same time zone as PBO or that she really feels that way herself.”

        I ask this all the time when I come across a red state Dem running for office.

    • October 11, 2014 at 1:30 pm

      I want Mrs. Grimes to win, because Mitch McConnell is a low down dirty rat. But in a way the distancing themselves from this President really bother me. The President have done alot of good things to get this country back on the right track, and Democrats like Grimes can’t say one good thing this President have done.

      I’ve been on the hunt for new SF motorcade videos but not much luck so far. But I’ve been looking at some old ones, it’s such a blast.
      Here’s one from 2011 when POTUS arrived in the same Pac Hts neighborhood for a fundraiser at Marc Benioff’s house (He’s the founder and CEO of Salesforce and a very big DEM and PBO supporter:

      Kinda fun to feel the excitement all over again.

      • October 11, 2014 at 1:35 pm

        I’m hearing lots of helicopters right now and it reminds me of the area that PBO often lands near Golden Gate Bridge. Here’s an old video of one. Skip to 4:45 to see POTUS. What I find so cool is that he always takes a few moments to stop and enjoy where he is.

      Great tweets NW. The tweets re Grimes are spot on. Unfortunately, she did herself a real disservice by not answering the vote question. She probably lost votes on that one. When she said “you know I am a Clintonite”, I almost fell over. Clinton was not on the presidential ticket. There is a difference of night and day between she and Wendy Davis. I know she is doing what she think is necessary to win.

      • October 11, 2014 at 1:55 pm

        When she said “you know I am a Clintonite”, I almost fell over.

        What possessed her to spout this? Was she dogwhistling? A Democratic President backed by the popular Democratic governor of her own state just got 500,000 people to enroll in Obamacare. Clinton’s healthcare plan died in committee. Do you really want to be called a Clintonite given what he accomplished compared to PBO?

    Jonathan Alter is firmly on Panetta’s bandwagon. He calls PBO the ” Professor in Chief.” Tweeted that he’d be on Alex Witt to discuss his Daily Beast article on the subject. I am too. Depressed about this. Feels like another knife in the back to me.

    I really hate politics. It’s a nasty, cutthroat world.

      Take heart; this is all that they have. PBO ignores them and goes on to win and win; the majority of the voting public ignored themand elected PBO twice; the media has a small and ever dwindling reader and viewership and despite all of this, PBO is loved and respected the world over. He and we have won the history award; the others will be lucky to be footnotes.

      A professor is smart, measured and sensible……at least Most professors that I met.

      Jon Alter is a so called reporter, when the world is tired of him, other than his family and a few friends, who cares what his contribution has been in the world? What exactly has he ever done to help make US better?

    • October 11, 2014 at 3:06 pm

      I have a question, knowing full well the midterm election is coming up and it will be a struggle for the Democrats to keep control of the Senate. Couldn’t Panetta had waited to release his book till after the election. You have Democrats out there thinking only of themselves.

        After the elections, the Media will be all about his Friend The Clintons…….beating up on pres Obama…..whom they will prefer to ignore would not be as attractive……the goal here is to maximize his book sales to on Panetta’s part.

        I hate to believe a lot of things……yet when examined closely, where there is smoke, fire abruptly springs up.
        The guy was uninsured. Poor. Foreigner. Black.
        The stats on treatment in US at private hospitals are known. An uninsured gets just basic and minimal treatment when compared to cash and carry folks, Medicare, Medicaid and Insured Folks. The stats are there.

        In USA……..unfortunately……it is almost the case.
        Even when treating insured people, the Doctors treat people of color differently too.

        Last Bella, Hospitals are generally not known to send one home with antibiotics with 103 temperature.

        • October 11, 2014 at 3:31 pm

          I wonder…did insurance come into play for the first two patients treated at Emory? In their case, it wasn’t a situation where someone walked into an ER to be treated. They were sent to Emory specifically to be treated for ebola. In the case of Mr. Duncan, not withstanding him having a 103 temperature [I’ve heard that people can go into seizures at temperatures that high], you just have to wonder if everything was done for him that could have been done. By the time the decision was made treat him with the experimental drug, it was probably too late to do any good.

          I also wonder the difference in the level of care given to Mr. Duncan and the patient currently being treated in Nebraska.

        • October 11, 2014 at 3:52 pm

          You are right Nena unless they are poor, black and a foreigner.

        • October 11, 2014 at 5:41 pm

          Nena, maybe this have to be look into. I do find it mighty strange that he told them he had just visit west Africa, he had a temperature but he was sent home. That white camera man seem to be improving some.

    Fox and the Rightie Media use the Medium to support their side, trash their opponents and get the MSM to distort the News. Winning and Check Mate.

    The MSM is now used to find Only conflicts and seek for stories to discredit Dems and pres Obama in particular.

    MSNBC is Not there to support Dem causes. Hence they get tagged as left and many lefties have abandoned their stations. Their ratings are down.
    CNN is their to be the Media Scary National Crier with she/he said Memes.

    Sharing my Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) recent Happy Dance re: No rate increases for my medical plan for 2015, dental rate decreased, while the Benefit Maximum more than doubled, yea!!). in the last 3 months, I have had a flu shot, a mammogram, and a blood test, all without co-pays. My yearly dental X-Rays scheduled for December is also without any other costs. Finally, the one medication that I take is only 1.81 $ for a month’s supply. When I retired in the summer of 2013, my biggest financial concern was the cost of health care (I am under 65 and single) that I would be directly responsible for for the first time (it was an employee benefit prior to this). It has been manageable so far, thanks, in part, to the ACA. When I received the news that there would be no rate increases for 2015, I was greatly relieved. I love Obamacare and the man who brought it to us. I am always so tickled that the term that the GOPers used as a pejorative, has instead insured that PBO would forever get credit for this law that has begun to transform the health and well-being of our nation.

    Whew. I am so mad right now. I’ve got to take the hubby to UAB to the transplant center for an all day test on the 18th, which starts at 6:15 a.m. I booked a car from Hotwire.com for the trip. Than a good Samaritan offer to transport us. I asked Hotwire could I swap the car for the hotel. They refused. Can I use the care on another day? They Refused.

    I will never use them again. Very mad right now at that lady that took my call. I asked to speak to a supervisor. She told me the answer will be the same if a supervisor gets the call. She puts me on hold and comes back and it sounds she is the same person. I said to her, I just spoke to you. She said, no this blah, blah. I swear it was her. I am sooooooo pissed.

    I am really pissed at her total disregard of the current president of these United States BARACK OBAMA!!!

        Thank you, Vicki! We must remember our beloved POTUS is polling at 31% in Kentucky! McConnell could have the election determined if Alison Grimes had stated on camera that “She voted for President Barack Obama!” The airwaves all over Kentucky would have many different ads with Alison Grimes stating she voted for President Obama. Former President and Secretary Clinton are beloved in Kentucky. Alison Grimes was smart to deflect the answer to the question in the manner that she did. The media is outraged because she didn’t take the bait. She did what she needed to do to help her chances. We shall see how that works for her. Now President Clinton can go into Kentucky and make some sense of the media trying to hang her because she did not disclose who she voted for. Not disclosing who you vote for is a time honored tradition in certain places. Many people reject questions about who they vote for. So, I don’t think this hurts toooo much. People see it as the media piling on to a female candidate who is a strong woman.

    “President Xi Jinping,

    According to the International Monetary Fund, China will soon become the world’s greatest economy. For many, they will take pride in this extraordinary economic success of China. You proclaimed to pursue “The China dream” – the dream of all people, which shall therefore be realized by the people, and for the people. We presume you would agree that real accomplishment can only be achieved from a bottom-up approach by the people. Now, Hong Kong people have made clear that the same dream for the previous 30 years: the implementation of genuine universal suffrage and the establishment of a system which respects equal rights and guards the well-being of Hong Kong people in the generations to come.

    You once said, “We shall always listen to the people, respond to their expectations and ensure equal rights of participation and development, so as to maintain social justice.” Don’t Hong Kong people’s persistence for an equal system echoes with your thought? Hong Kong people’s proposal of the abolition of Functional Constituencies and Civil Nomination within the Chief Executive electroal framework or the nominating committee aims at guaranting equal participation and rights, with a view to achieve an equal development and protect social fairness and justice.

    Sadly, at this very moment, our Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying is acting exactly contrary to your vision.”

    eggsacklee. Because her response to POTUS makes absolutely no sense at all. But, I am choosing to give her the benefit of the doubt and believe she has no moral compass.

    • October 11, 2014 at 5:31 pm

      nospin, as I said before I want Mrs. Grimes to defeat McConnell, but I would like to see these Democrats stand up and say, listen to me I do not agree with every policy of President Obama. I am my own person and first and foremost I will stand up for the people of my state, but I refuse to stand here and act like Barack Obama is some evil person who want to destroy this country. I want the people of Kentucky to judge me on what I say I will do for this state.
