    Thank you. The leftwing is pathetic. I’m so sick of the meltdowns and blaming the president for everything. I have liberal tendencies and I support a progressive agenda, but I’m beginning to think I don’t fit in to the Democratic party.

      Do not despair. The rethiglicans now have to govern and will have no one else to blame if the country and the economy remains stagnant. The dems lost yesterday not because of our President, they lost because this is still a racist country that cannot get over the fact that the man occupying the white house is black. We as a country will persevere at all costs. We still need to support our President.

      You and me both!!! I am so disgusted with some on the left, I just want to puke. I’ve now switched off everybody and now get my information from here – thank you Chipsticks for creating this site that allows us to cut through all the muck and crap!!!

        Me too, eleroy. I’ve decided to just come to this site and my twitter account to get information about the President.

        Enough’s enough.

      good to know that I’m not the only one. The left wing needs to realize that not every democrat is 1000% liberal, progressive or what ever. There is nothing wrong with being moderate on some issues.

      I think that some on the left forget President Obama’s election night speech when he said that he would be the president of everyone, even those who didn’t vote for him.

        Some on the left have selective hearing. They heard what they want to hear from him and chose not to hear other things like: escalation in Afghanistan; like bipartisanship; and as you pointed out: “And for those who didn’t vote for me, I will be your President too.”

        The Democratic party should change its name to the “Bitch and Moan” Party.

    Maybe we do need a new party, and get rid of the Far Left, who are just as bad as the Far Right.

    After his brilliance during that press conference I knonw he has this. The deflection was masterful, the whole humbled demeaner, the whole emotional persona, such an amazing set up for what I am sure is to come. Our President knew from day 1 this would happen, that is why he tried to get so much through in the 18 months.

    The ball is in gop court now. I snicker at this so much, he is amazing.

    First time poster here. I just wanted to thank you for making this site and keeping me sane! I’m so sick and tired of some of the other sites hysteria and freak outs. I watched the press conference today, and he had me all teary towards the end. I love my President and I’m very proud of him. Onward we go!

    • November 4, 2010 at 9:32 am

      Welcome Mia, great to have you here! I felt the same watching the press conference, but he’s a fighter and I’m certain he’ll just dust himself down and fight even harder than before. Keep the faith Mia!

    Was just flipping channels and happened upon Jon Stewart. Could someone please tell me what Stewart has against President Obama? What is really going on?

    What’s with the kissing the butts of Fox news personalities and endlessly disrespecting and slamming President Obama.

    Ted Strickland is a Clinton man and to somehow now pawn him off on President Obama because he failed to get re-elected? And if he’d won, Stewart would have been the first to credit Clinton for the win.

    What about all those places Clinton could go and Obama *couldn’t* {hint, hint} to campaign? What about all those people Clinton campaigned for that all lost?

    I know, I know, Jon Stewart only does *satire*. {Eyes rolling}

    But he’s officially on my big, fat jerk list ~ apologies to all of you who think he’s this funny, truthy, liberal with no agenda and pure motives.

      I, too, have been put off by Jon Stewart lately. Despite his pretending to be a centrist, his criticisms of the administration are definitely from further left of me. But I must say that I forgave him a lot after his speech at the Rally for Sanity. No one speaks for the failures of the MSM like he does. That is what he excels at, not his coverage of this president. It was so much fun seeing how the MSM reacted afterwards, in a defensive, butthurt manner, so he definitely hit the bull’s eye. I really recommend watching the speech for curing the Jon Stewart blues 😉

        Jon Stewart is an appeaser. In his efforts to appease the left AND the right, he’s lost his authenticity and his objectivity.

          I have stopped watching Jon Stewart, or Olbermann, or Ed Schultz–Maddow is balanced most of the time, but not her guests. They have contributed to all of this as well as the MSM in general. I read some newspapers online, but I highly suggest everyone listen to the radio show of RandiRhodes.com–I’ve probably agreed with her 95% of the time. She is the most intelligent person on and is not ideologically bound. She is spot on with what’s really going on, really supports this President and you will learn so much. She talked me down after Tuesday…I’m calmer and more optimistic now. Subscribe to her podcast…now!!! It’s hard to tell if she’s moderate left or left or independent or far left…which I just love. It’s not about party, but what works and what doesn’t. She is simply brillant and knows what MSNBC, CNN, FAUX and the others are doing. She has this President’s back people—listen live to her and subscribe to her podcast. P.S. The Clintons got her fired off of Air America during the primaries because she supported the President.

            Thanks for the tip on Rhodes – I will tune in. You are so right about the others. Just today Schultz was on blaming the President for the losses on Tuesday and for saying he will try to work with the Repubs. He is always talking about the President needing to “grow a pair”. Yet for the last couple of weeks he was talking about how great it was the President was fighting so hard for Dems to win.
            He is such a hypocrit – told the 99ers not to vote back in the summer and then over the last few weeks was trying to act like he never said that! He is pathetic. I can barely tolerate Stewart – who mocks the President as being weak also and Olbermann does not even vote!!!!!

            I am also a huge fan of Randi Rhodes!!! She has been the most insightful and articulate voice in the midst of all the madness. Ironically, someone I know just called me today to gush about this really good woman on the radio she happened across and it was Randi Rhodes.

            I was beginning to think I was alone in my disdain of the media in general. I stopped watching the minute they started with their disrespect and denigration of President Obama. I don’t even listen to the news anymore and I unsubscribed from everything – CNN updates, NYTimes, Huffington post etc. Everything!

            Anything I need to know, I trust that between the White House Daily and Chipsticks, I’m pretty much covered…

            I will on occasion however watch the Colbert Report which is satire and sometimes really funny, but never Jon Stewart/Daily Show – I saw right through him a while back. I just read somewhere that one of Jon’s/Daily Show fake correspondents – the English guy John Oliver, just married a republican he met at the 2008 republican convention. Maybe that sheds a bit of light on things…?

            I do listen to Randi Rhodes (I mute the CNN radio “news” updates) and think that she’s pretty terrific – very well-researched, engaging and very supportive and respectful of President Obama.

            I actually thought about starting a campaign of sorts to see if Oprah would give her a show on her new OWN network. Wouldn’t that be great…?


            Janelle, are you the same Janelle from the early days of Mrs-O.org..?

              November 5, 2010 at 11:26 am

              Yes it’s me Chi. I go to Mrs-O.org every day for fashion updates but have to take a long “blog break” from commenting. Good for my sanity with a lot of negativity around. I’m always lurking over there and this site everyday so I am around. I stopped listening to R. Rhodes for several months only because of the CNN/Fox news updates during commercials. Since the destruction of progressive radio, most of her markets are on stations that are right-wing and she’s kind of sandwiched between Hannity, Savage, etc. in a lot of places. So I subscribed to her podcast for $6/month and all I hear now during her breaks are music. Some days I don’t listen, but most days I do. Plus after 24 hours, you can listen to the previous day straight through in about 90 minutes.

              Also, I noticed that good radio personalities need to stay on radio and just increase their markets. (Randi has stated several times that she is judged by her bosses mainly on podcast subscriptions.) People change once they get on TV to appease the corporate masters. I love Oprah but she is still a businesswoman accountable to corporate sponsors. Oprah truly supports the Obamas but she has to do it very subtley or she will get creamed.

                I sort of thought it might be you Janelle! Great to bump into you again…

                I sort of occasionally lurk too now at Mrs O (just way too much trolling going on & it’s quite off-putting).

                I live in California and so Randi’s on Green 960 am here. But I think I’ll definitely take your lead and subscribe to her podcast if only to support her and keep her on air. And @ $6/month, it’s just a token really.

                You’re absolutely right about corrupting influences especially once on television. I especially think it’s really sad what’s happened to journalism in general and broadcast news in particular.

                It’s funny, but would you believe that I’ve never heard Hannity, Savage, Limbaugh or any right wing radio. And on every television set in my home I have Fox News blocked just so that I never ever flip to them in error…

                And after the awful election results nationally, it feels bloody good to be a Californian. Our sweat and tears really paid off big time here. And with Kamala Harris now winning the Attorney General seat, it’ll be a straight Democratic sweep for state government. It’s encouraging at least-

                Take care and stay in touch ok…

      Oh Jon Stewart the guy that had that rally to display funny signs, that rally that he failed to advise that huge audience to vote, the guy that slammed Keith Olberman for taking up for the Muslims against fox news hate,that guy? Another media ahole is all.

    I am with you all. I decided to step away from the blogs for a while, so this site will be it for me. I think my president is being abused and that has been pretty difficult for me to swallow.

    I trust in the President. Those on the prof left are already talking about primarying him for 2012. Wtf?

    • 24 Hachikō
      November 4, 2010 at 8:50 am

      They started talking about primarying him more than a year ago. It’s nothing new. Every time they deem an event has gone bad, they blame the President and start yapping about primarying him. Fools.

          That’s the ONLY thing I like about the rethuglicans…they stick together most of the time. Democrats as a whole are not supporting this President and could be effective surrogates for him on TV. They’re making him do all the heavy lifting while governing in a time of crisis. I hate to say it, but they are very jealous of the President. They need to stick together and support President Obama or they will never hold on to power long enough to accomplish more legislation. The President’s words/interviews are edited and spliced so much and his rallies are rarely aired. Others need to help him…and people should be calling their congressman/woman if they’re not doing enough or saying enough or bashing this President. Democrats in Congress need to be told we don’t like what they say or do…..hold them accountable to support this President. He’s the President, not a king. If a Democrat or Republican says something we don’t like, email them or call their office…make them squirm before 2012.

    I am just so pissed right now. I am pissed at the voters who voted for the republicans and I am pissed at the deomocrats and others who didn’t go vote. What I can’t understand is the main folks that need his help are the ones that are going against him. And I hate to be the one to play the race card, but let’s call a spade a spade. They weren’t voting against democrats, they were voting against BARACK OBAMA. What I keep telling myself is, God has a plan. And if it is God’s plan for Obama to succeed, then there is nothing anyone can do about it. I have Faith in God and I have Faith in my President.
