    Lord please give PBO the patience, smarts, and fortitude to deal with the infantile and juvenile repugs.
    Thank goodness his schedule is kind of “light”. He defintely needs more rest after the absolutely perfect bang up job he did in Europe. 😉

    Going to bed now, and praying an extra prayer for PBO, to win the day once again. Nite UT and Chips 😀

    Hope he takes that big stick with him when he goes to meet the Republicans!

    Check out this Janny Scott interview – well worth the time. I posted this under another thread so hope the repeat is okay – just wanted to make sure everyone saw it!

      Thanks Lou – I’m gathering energy to watch this interview, since you said Major Garret is doing the interviewing. Thanks for posting – I definitely want to watch this.

      I really enjoyed Janny Scott, Major Garrett made me nervous, felt like I was working my stink eye every time he posed a question. Janny Scott clearly enjoyed researching and writing this book, and seems to have developed a very deep respect and appreciation for Stanley Ann.

      Thanks for the heads up louc1….I’ll be buying this book.

        I agree with Sue and Lous1. I watched this last just before going to bed. Janny Scott did a really good interview, and presented Stanley Ann realistically and affectionately. She spoke clearly with confidence and compassion, and she brought Ms Dunham to life for me. I checked in meaning to watch 10 minutes or so, and stayed for the entire thing! Re the interviewer, his role was incidental; whatever he may have done elsewhere, in this interview he allowed Ms Scott the opportunity to speak on her subject and she did so with eloquence. Well worth watching!

      Thank you for posting. That was delightful. The author obviously enjoyed herself doing the research and is very enthusiastic about the subject. I spent a very pleasant hour watching. I will be ordering the book.

      Aren’t Republicans praying that Latinos will flock to Rubio as a VP candidate? Pity – he says he won’t be anyone’s number two.

        Having one Latino on their ticket won’t change what the Republicans truly are. They have no use for minorities of any color, and Lations will not be fool by that. They will look at the Republicans record, and judge them by that.

        the GOP puts up ‘ WHAT ABOUT IF YOU AIN’T WHITE DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND ‘ law after another…

        but, Rubio will erase that?
        bump that.

        he won’t even open up his mumbling mouth AGAINST THOSE LAWS.

      Jovie,

      I read this article yesterday, and initial reaction was that this would be great news for PBO in 2012. However, do you or anyone else have any insights as to the ramification of the Dream Act not being passed and some other immigration issues not being addressed, will it limit the Hispanic vote?

        Hey Naijas, in response to your question, I hope the Dream Act not being fully passed will not limit the Hispanic vote. The House of Reps passed the Dream Act but it fell short by a few votes in the Senate so at least PBO and the Dems have a record of having some positive action with regard to Hispanics than the repugs have. Also for the past few months only PBO has been talking about immigration reform, courting the Hispanics and talking to Hispanics about business, healthcare, education and whatnot. So, hopefully the Hispanic block takes all these facts and many more into account.

          I think Hispanics need to ask themselves how far they got with the Dream Act with the Republicans, and how far they think they’ll get with Republicans if they back them in 2012, or 2016, or beyond.

          I would give the same advice to anyone who doesn’t belong to the top 2% of the population, regardless of color. How far have Republicans advanced the cause of working people, teachers, police, military, nurses, laborers, education, gays, women, children (now that they are under attack on the nutrition front), etc. What have Republicans done for anyone outside of the top 2%, what have they promised to do, and what have they shown us they’re willing to do? No need to go any further.

          If the economy doesn’t improve, I wouldn’t trust anyone other than President Obama to keep working hard at it and trying to improve the plight of ordinary people. If the peace talks break down in the Middle East, I wouldn’t trust anyone else but President Obama to make things happen. If the Chinese and Indians start to exceed the US in global industry, I wouldn’t trust anyone but President Obama to devise a plan to reverse that trend. I certainly wouldn’t vote in a Republican thinking that they are going to do anything different than what they’ve shown us they want to do. I don’t care how bad it gets – I would never think that a Republican will have the answer.

    Good night, sleep tight, and rest well everyone! I’m nodding off before the screen so it’s time to call it quits for today. (Tomorrow is another in and out day so who knows when I’ll be able to check in?)

    Nite Chipsticks, and I also want to thank you so much for this lovely haven for all of us to enjoy. You have a great evening of rest and relaxation. Thanks for the lovely photo of our President. I have my meditation list for tonight and for tomorrow, God willing. Much to be grateful for and much to keep thinking positive. Thank you again, Chipsticks.

    Thank you Chips and everyone for such a great forum of ideas and thoughts. I love being able to read everyone’s comments. It is so nice to read and not get anger at what people are writing.

    So glad to see that the President is having another quiet day.

    See you all in the morning!

    I guess you guys heard that those two racists carnival barkers had lunch together yesterday, Sarah Palin and Donald Trump. What a disgrace.

  10. June 1, 2011 at 7:51 am

    According to Andrea mitchel, the fact that the president named Dempsey and not Cartwright to be our next top general, that of course means there will be no troops coming home next month???
    Really, Andrea?
    Of course, your sources are so good bc you have been so fair to the wh that they gave you this scoop?
    Or, are you just talking out of your Ass?

    Me thinks, it’s the latter…

    Good morning!
