    Thank you Chipsticks for providing vehicles that we can use to show the President that we are behind him 100%. Frustration builds when one feels helpless. The things you provide us make us feel powerful! Thank you for being here to guide, inform, and assist us!!! I’M FIRED UP! 😀

    And cue in the UNprofessional left fauxgressive groups continuing to call for POTUS to be primaried, because he’s supposedly a corporatist right wing Republican DLC Wall Street stooge 🙄

    On a serious note, glad to see Democrats.org standing up for our POTUS, even if the UNprofessional left don’t. GOBAMA 2012!!!! 🙂

    I am in Chipsticks. It is good to get an occasional kick in the butt to be reminded of the importance of donating to PBO.

    Can you guys believe this shit from yahoo news? F*ing F-ers 😡 😡 😡 :

    Though the president himself, his staff, and his supporters around the country are busy devoting everything they’ve got to his 2012 re-election campaign, Obama revealed Monday that his family isn’t necessarily as “invested.”
    “Michelle and the kids are wonderful in that if I said, ‘You know, guys, I want to do something different,’ they’d be fine. They’re not invested in daddy being president or my husband being president. But they do believe in what we’re doing,” Obama told NBC “Today Show” host Ann Curry in an interview that aired Tuesday.
    And the president revealed that even he sometimes feels like giving up.
    You can watch the interview above.
    “I’m sure there are days where I say that one term is enough,” the president said, but he added that what keeps him going is the unfinished work regarding energy, education, and other issues.
    In the end, Obama said, if his family is happy, he’s happy.
    “If the family is doing well, if Michelle is still putting up with me, then I’ve got enough energy to keep on doing the work that I’m doing.”
    Many of the president’s potential 2012 rivals have been calling for Americans to make Obama a one-term president.
    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in March dismissed Obama as a one-term president over the issue of health care.
    “Obamacare is bad law, bad policy, and it is bad for America’s families,” Romney told a New Hampshire audience. “And that’s the reason why President Obama will be a one-term president.”
    Last night, Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.) drew wide applause during a televised GOP presidential debate in New Hampshire for declaring: “President Obama is going to be a one-term president.”
    Polls show that economic woes across the country and unemployment continue to drag down the president’s approval numbers.
    A Quinnipiac University poll released last week showed that after a brief “bounce” following the death of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden, the president’s poll numbers are back down to a 47-46 approval rating. Polls taken in key swing states of Ohio and Florida this spring have shown that voters are split on whether the president deserves a second term.

      Sometimes I wish there was a way that these people could get the President they deserve, and just let the rest of the people stick with President Obama. They are all disgusting, and the people who believe them are horrible, too.

      The lies and cold-heartedness of the other side just breaks my heart. We have to pray hard for the President and his family as well as all Americans who deserve better. This is the ugliest time I have ever seen in my life.

      A word of caution about the online comments sections: I have reason to believe that these comments are not really comments by ordinary readers, but by actively paid workers from the Republican party. These nasty comments simply are not reflected by the people’s reaction when the president goes around, be it in North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York City or California. It’s the same limited group of paid online workers who infiltrate comments section with anti-Obama vitriol in the hopes of swaying opinion.

        Oh, and I also believe that some of the “comments” are also coming from the right-wing authors of the articles and editors themselves.

      I think President Obama will be able to do somewhat like he did in 2008. He will raise money in the West and East and campaign in Florida, Ohio, Colorado and other places. POTUS will have to campaign and we will have to work hard. They will not be caught flat-footed like 2008. They basically thought POTUS couldn’t win because they saw the country through their own special lens.

      This time we will have to work harder than we did in 2008 because these assholes are going to bring out the big guns and the big money. This is too early to get upset with polls and even the corporate media’s propping up of Romney. I think we have to stay focused on what we can accomplish while the GOP is figuring out their candidate.

      They will have to come to the table with something more than Obama is bad blah blah blah. Obama is a socialist blah blah blah. That will work in a primary, but it will not work in a general election.

    Found this lovely quote posted by bella citta on the style section of Huffy Puff about our Miche:

    “Character contribute s to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline , fortitude, and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful. ”

    I thought it was too true 😀

    Wisconsin Union Law To Take Effect

    MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin’s Republican governor has won a major victory: the state Supreme Court says his polarizing union rights law can go into effect.

    Gov. Scott Walker pushed the law that eliminates most of public employees’ collective bargaining rights and forces them to pay more for their health and pension benefits. He says it’s needed for the state to address its budget problems.

      Sad. President Obama warned them last year. How much longer before the PL start blaming him instead of looking in the mirror.

    Sen Boxer SMACKDOWN of Rand Paul & GOP for turning a JOBS Bill into a repeal of Wall St Reform

    Unlike lightning, Senator Barbara Boxer can strike twice in the same place, and on the same day. In two separate speeches on the Senate floor this Friday, Senator Boxer took down Rand Paul and the Senate GOP for fighting like hell to STOP a bill moving through Congress that might help America’s unemployment crisis. Senator Boxer called out the GOP for creating this disaster under George W. Bush and got in a nice shot at History Professor Sarah Palin. Taking a page from the Bernie Sanders playbook, Senator Boxer gave the GOP hell.

      I am glad to hear this about what Senator Boxer did. It is plan of the Republicans to do nothing, to prevent anything to be done to help this economy, to bring down unemployment, because they are fighting for the White House, they are not fighting for the poor and middle class. And the media is so darn stupid they refuse to see that, or they see it but they don’t care. The media have turn on this President. I don’t expect them to never say anything bad about him, what I do expect is for them to be fair. I will be making my donation to the Obama campaign. Because I am so upset with the Democarts for not defending this President like they should.

    I made the mistake of watching MSM when they started to cover the president’s visit to Puerto Rico. I was so excited, but that excitement was short lived. The story basically focused on the president’s re-election efforts and they represented that that was PBO’s ulterior motive for visiting. People openly ridicule Obama for not being haphazard and sloppy. Even if he is trying to drum up support from the Latino community, at least he values the community enough to do engage them which is volumes more than what the Republicans have done. They say that the president’s support amongst the Latino community is lagging because he failed to pass immigration reform. He is dealing with an obstinate and often infantile Congress that refuses to debate policy – they just debate Obama’s persona because its larger than life. The republican field of candidates are the anti-Obama collective.
    It’s a very long road to 2012 election. I am not going to allow myself to get caught up in the MSM’s narrative. Every republican and their initiative are given the benefit of the doubt while Obama is viciously criticized. I am going to start donating now, volunteering now, praying now – I am going to cherish the feel good posts that Chips so graciously gives us and not litter them with comments about republicans or MSM. I am going to focus on the work. Come what may, at the end of the day I am going to know I have done the best I can. Complaining about how PBO is harshly and unfairly criticized is not contributing to Obama’s re-election.
    I believe in this president. I believe in his agenda. I’m in 2012. I may have to give up MSM altogether, that’s fine, TV is a time suck.

      OMG DreamChaser57 – this is what we all should be saying and thank you for saying it. I’m gonna post it again: ” I am going to start donating now, volunteering now, praying now – I am going to cherish the feel good posts that Chips so graciously gives us and not litter them with comments about republicans or MSM.

      Hi DreamChaser, I saw ABC World News and it wasn’t as bad as I expected. They actually showed the crowds being very excited and thrilled that President Obama was there, and they said that his visit was in keeping with a promise he had made as a candidate back in 2008. Was it ABC World News that you saw?

      His support amongst Latinos is at 70%+. Did it fall from 72% or something?

    People no need to be sad about PBO and the Latino community. BWD posted this about a new poll that came out today showing Latinos overwhelmingly still support our wonderful President. The media knows this and are trying to erode that support but it ain’t happening. Did you see the photos Chips posted from PR? The people were so excited. The media feeds American lies. That’s why PBO is traveling somewhere every week because he knows he has to get in front of the people. It doesn’t matter that msm doesn’t cover it. It’s just like Iowa. The media ignored candidate Obama who went to every city and town and was getting huge crowds. The media still ignored him and gave him no chance against the inevitable Hillary Clinton. We know how that turned out.

    A highlight:
    “The poll revealed that Latino registered voters had favorable opinions of President Obama with 70% of Hispanics showing approval of the job the President is doing while 33% disapprove of his performance. Furthermore, 55% will vote or are leaning to vote for Obama in the upcoming 2012 election. In contrast, according to a national poll by CNN, voters at large displayed an approval of 55% and a disapproval of 44%.”

    And this:
    “The poll also asked registered voters about how the Republican and Democrat Parties reached out to Latino voters. The results showed that 52% felt that Democrats were doing a good job while only 18% felt the same about Republicans.

    The tracking poll is also set to ask about how Latinos view various leaders of the GOP. In this poll, registered voters were asked about the impression of former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin. The poll showed that 23% had a favorable impression while 52% had an unfavorable impression. ”

    Read the survey results and enjoy:
