      Hahaha… I bet he makes Boehner cry uncontrollably and pass him some gum. I love how PBO is making these lazy repubs work hard. No more vacation time and bullshit legislation. I bet they haven’t worked this hard since Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the House.

    The Colbert Report is on now and he is skillfully mocking the GOP Presidential candidates. 😆 He’s having fun with Herman Cain’s attempts to run for President. Welcome back Stephen. Welcome back. Also on Thursday July 28, 2011 Herman Cain is going to be on the Colbert Report. That is going to be a hell of a show. He’s now talking about the Iowa Marriage Pledge that GOP candidates signed. Brilliant!

        I just saw your post. Dan Savage was fantastic. Dan Savage shocked the hell out of Stephen. He was SHOCKED SPEECHLESS!!! I’ve never seen Stephen like that before. Also when he did the bit on Marcus Bachmann and his hate of gays and he brought his intern out and they did a mini skit with coded gay references and they kept reiterating how they LOOOOVED women. Hahahaha Jon Stewart watch Colbert and weep. Colbert is going to have a BLAST with the gop field. Cannot wait!

    Chipsticks do you have a schedule for what the First Lady is doing? I like to keep up with what she is doing. Her schedule might be kind of slow right now since the girls are out of school. She will be spending time with them.

      Yes, he does meta. We are so blessed to have such a hard working President in the Oval Office. He is not consumed with power, but with doing his very best for the nation and all the people in it. We have been given a very special gift in President Barack H. Obama. Thank you Father for this great gift. PPlease let us take the best of care of him in our daily prayers, meditations, quiet times of good thoughts going out in the universe for our wonderful President. God please be with him.

        One of my favorite President Obama quotes is: “you don’t run for office to BE something; you run for office to DO something”.

          Thanks theo67 for sharing this apropos quote from the President! What the country needs, right now, are Republican legislatures who are into doing practical things to improve the lives of the American people. Sadly, all we see to day are politicians, who love being Senators or Hon. members of Congress, but who do nothing to address the needs of the people …

        Father God, we thank you for your wonderful gift of a great leader, and great President. Thank you Lord Jesus, thank you 🙂

    More details from WaPo:

    Cantor, who is advocating a smaller deal, at one point demanded that Obama offer the details of his vision for a “grand bargain.”

    “Where’s your paper?” he asked angrily.

    Obama snapped back: “Frankly, your speaker has it. Am I dealing with him, or am I dealing with you?”

    Oh, the humanity, it burns!!

    Greetings TOD family! Just heard from the campaign…$47,000,000 ($47 million) raised in the first three months! And that’s just to OFA. When you include the $38,000,000 we also donated to the DNC we put $86,000,000 ($86 million) into the President’s and other democrats re-election/election campaign funds! Wow! Incredible! This is amazing! Proud to be one of those more than half-a-million supporters who donated small amounts to this campaign and ended up with such a big number! Yes, we can…do this again!! Is féidir linn, fo’ sho’!! 🙂

  14. July 13, 2011 at 6:08 am

    We raised $86 MILLION..!!!

    FIRED UP..!!

    READY TO GO..!!! 😀

      Just got that amazing message—–the most by any political campaign at this point—-in history! 552,462 donors! We aren’t the only ones who are “all in”.

    Hahahahahah. Rock you beat me to it!!! I saw this on Morning Joe and I started screaming like a banshee in excitement. The goal was to raise $60 million and we far exceeded the goal by raising a whopping $86 million. 552,462 people stepped up to the plate and there were 680,000 donations, once again far exceeding our goals. 98% of those donations were $250 or less and the average donation was $69. When Mike Allen of POLITICO reported this, Joe Scarborough lost his mind saying “how were republicans supposed to compete if President Obama isn’t limiting himself to FEC money. Well dumbass neither are your buddies on the gop side! Repubs are using outside groups that don’t have to disclose anything financially so the fact that we outraised them, shows what a juggernaut President Obama is and the rightwingers and the msm can’t handle that. Everytime they insult him, lie about him and his accomplishments and denigrate him; we get even more fired up than usual. So please please guys let’s continue the pushback, the donations and the work; because 2012 is a whole different ball game, but we are in it to WIN IT! Congratulations fellow Obamabots!

    I highly recommend that everyone on this blog listen to the podcast in the link below from Politicususa. It is a brilliant analysis of what has transpired in the last few weeks with the debt limit negotiations. Most importantly, there is a plethora of talking points that need to be mined from this post and tweeted non stop to the media.


    In episode two of Politicus Radio, Sarah Jones and Jason Easley discuss Obama’s handling of debt ceiling standoff. Plus, your daily update on the decline of Rupert Murdoch’s empire.

    Another excellent post from Joy at The Reid Report. The GOP is in disarray lacking leadership from Boehner, Cantor and McConnell. The tail (the unhinged, deranged and just plain nuts members) are wagging the dog. It’s a sight to see. Who’s on first, I don’t know, third base.



    Things have gotten so bad, even President Obama couldn’t resist taking a shot:

    The two sides then sparred over the advantages of a mid-size deal that would reduce borrowing by roughly $2.4 trillion over the next decade vs. a grander, $4 trillion debt-reduction compromise Obama and Boehner had been trying to forge in private last week.

    Since pulling the plug on the deal, Boehner has been largely silent in the meetings, leaving House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to present details of the House’s position. On Tuesday, people in both parties said, Obama tried to reestablish Boehner’s primacy.

    Cantor, who is advocating a smaller deal, at one point demanded that Obama offer the details of his vision for a “grand bargain.”

    “Where’s your paper?” he asked angrily.

    Obama snapped back: “Frankly, your speaker has it. Am I dealing with him, or am I dealing with you?”

      They keep forgetting who they are dealing with. I am so, so, SO glad President Obama is on my side. He is a formidable opponent.

      Here’s the excerpt from the above link to the Reid Report that did it for me..

      The tea party/talk-radio expectations for what Republicans can accomplish over the debt-limit showdown have always been unrealistic. As former Senator Phil Gramm once told us, never take a hostage you’re not prepared to shoot. Republicans aren’t prepared to stop a debt-limit increase because the political costs are unbearable. Republicans might have played this game better, but the truth is that Mr. Obama has more cards to play.

        Down comes the hammer. And now a word from the GOP corporate masters. The GOP only has itself to blame for their current predicament. The Tea Party monster they enabled is eating them alive. What we are witnessing is breathtaking. The implosion of a once formidable political party. What is tragic is that the media continues to report on them as if they are a credible opposition party.


        So, let’s see. Wall Street wants Republicans to stop screwing around. The business community wants Republicans to stop screwing around. Global investors want Republicans to stop screwing around. The Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department want Republicans to stop screwing around.

        But unhinged and uninformed right-wing activists want Republicans to keep pushing their — and our — luck. As of this morning, the congressional GOP is only listening to the activists.
