    If you’re watching Lawrence O’Donnell tonight, he just drank the “Professional Left”‘s milkshake. It’s a brutal takedown. He’s explaining things to them like they’re children. This is a thing of beauty.

      good, it is beyond time those folks got a steady earful on their foolishness. Better yet, he ought to keep them off his show… at least not allowing them to pretend they speak for POTUS’s base.

    HOLY SHIT. Lawrence just said those PLs who are complaining about about the president and medicare and Social security where former republicans in the 80s. Holy shit, holy shit. My hair stood up on the back of my neck when he called them the knew found defenders of Medicare when they voted republican in the 80s or never voted. Am wondering who he is talking about.

      He really is doing an epic job of a takedown. Bravo! Lawrence Bravo! I’m glad someone in the msm is calling them out. Especially someone on the left so they can’t bitch and moan that it doesn’t mean a thing. As for the Mitt Romney 47th in job creation ad; hahahahahaha. One ad after another keeps sinking ol’ Mittens. Funny, he’s been strangely quiet on his so called jobs and business record and the debt ceiling debate.

    Twitter Feed of what is really going on in Libya. In brega, they destroyed 15 gaddafi tanks and captured the oil field, and the are already fighting gaddafi forces in tripoli Libya. They are already there in tripoli!

      I am actually glad that MSM has walked away from the Libya story. I got sick of their distortion of what was really happening there and how they kept trying to lie on PBO and make it appear that he did not get approval and all that crap. Jovie, thanks for keeping us informed on this. I look forward to your reports on what is actually happening with all of this. We all know MSM has the attention of a gnat. 🙂

        Its ironic isn’t it. We need information on a timely basis but we don’t need the spin. I am really sick of the spin.

    LO is just awesome tonight. He really seems to have a grasp on the subtle posturing of these negotiations. He is now reading the quote from Lindsey Graham about the repubs should not have stood up saying that they would not raise the debt limit without cuts. LO is priceless.

    Watched the first part of ODonnell’s program. Boy did he school everyone in how government works. Everyone needs to listen. We had to leave to go to a dinner party so I hope to hear the repeat later tonight.

    Yep Lawrence O’donnell, explains politics extremely well. I like that about him 🙂 Especially for people like me, who Is not that well versed in the political game, but I’m learning from *TOD* Family, and Lawrence O’Donnell. So, thank you guys I appreciate It 🙂

    Lawrence O’Donnell is H2H with Olbermann right? Probably figures he can’t compete with the emoprogs hero, so he’ll look for the different audience. When you think about it it makes business/viewer sense in that Obama holds 80% favorables among Democrats, so the Olbermann types are trying to appeal to the 20%ers, and I’d further bet the vast, vast majority of those 20%ers will vote Obama in 2012.

    OT: Jennifer Lopez and Mark Anthony spit up after 7 years of marriage.

    • July 15, 2011 at 9:17 pm

      Wow, I am shocked about this split. Mark Anthony is playing a detective on the tv show “Hawthorne” with Jada Pinkett.

    Rev. Jesse Jackson on Rachel saying this anti-voter wave attributed to PBO election. We need to talk about this here, Chips. It’s time we become much more aware as part of the strategizing for 2012.

      So true EDP, it’s a biggie. Repugs are gaming behind the scenes bigtime. Rev. Al talked about it this week and Chris has also. This is our next big battle.

        Why doesn’t Hamsher take up that cause? Or is that an issue she can’t make money off of.

        Makes you wonder if she agrees with it, her being a tea bag supporter and all….

    • July 16, 2011 at 10:27 am

      EDP4BHO, I agree this need to be brought to the light. These Republicans Governors are trying to prevent, certain groups from voting, and these groups usually vote for Dems.

      I was listening to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi the other day and she made a very profound statement – During the first two years of the Obama administration every time you turned around there was a bill signing and then there was another bill signing and so on. It was really amazing. Nancy was a workhorse. Like President Obama her goal was to get things done.

      Since the Republicans have taken the majority in the House of Representatives there have been no bill signing ceremonies. They have introduced zero jobs bills. But they have had plenty of time to disenfranchise voters, dismantle unions, repeal ACA, attack Planned Parenthood and reproductive rights of women, redefining rape. You would think this would be a big story that the media should cover, but all we get are crickets.

      It’s already in the map room not the Oval Office and there will be no press.

      I think this is just noise that China knows it has to make and the WH knows was coming.

        Hi Anon, would you mind choosing a name rather than posting as ‘anonymous’, I think it’s good for everyone to know where a poster is coming from politically, hard to do when it’s ‘anon’! Thanks.

    • July 15, 2011 at 10:20 pm

      didn’t they do the same crap last year?

      They complained last time they met……..The Prez ignored them then, just as he will this time.
