        Thanks for the article Tien. I appreciate how the President lays his facts out in clear, easy to understand language so that everyone understands the issue at stake. Just tweeted it. 🙂

      Thanks Tien Le for the link. Did Dubbya do opeds like this by the way? I wasn’t really paying attention, but does anyone recall him writing op-eds of interest?

        You’re joking, right? If any op-ed ever appeared, it was staff-written while W was on a bike ride—-or napping. He never seemed all that interested in any work-related issues.

      Don’t read the comments as they are mostly against the president with the usual talking points about how Obama got us into this mess with his tax and spend policies. I get so tired of these people.

    Check our Rev. Al today. Very good program. Also, did anyone receive the letter from David Plouffe about Wall Street Reforms? Very informative, but this granny does not know how to send it to Chips from my computer.Help please Chips. Thank you so much.

    • July 21, 2011 at 7:52 pm

      HZ, I got that too. The only way I know how to send stuff like that is an attachment to another email. Could you send it directly to Chips via email? Probably not the best advice but all I got.

      Rev Al is smoking hot! I’ve been loving every minute of his broadcasts!

    Great video. Hope it goes viral. It’s short, concise, and to the point. Especially for those Americans who may be too busy to devour politics and it’s ins and outs like those of us on TOD. It’s also good for the ignorant and amnesia ridden Americans who can’t seem to get it into their heads that WallStreet is no pussycat but a shark that if left unregulated again, will devour and destroy one and all. They should watch this and be thankful we have a President who is vigorous in his defense of the little guy.

    Early Heads up: Radio Host Tom Joyner will make an appearance on the Rev Al Sharpton’s show tomorrow at 6pm EDT/5pm CDT.

    Thanks Chipsticks for posting this for everyone. I received mine via email today and I intend to pass it along. It tells the story that everyone who has ears can hear and clearly understand. AND it makes SENSE! We need this Agency if we want to avoid making the same ghastly economic mistake.

      Hey GGail, where did you sign up to receive emails from OFA, David Plouffe, Jim Messina and the rest of the gang?

      The question is also open to those who receive these emails also. Thanks.

    This is an excellent example of how important your blog is Chipsticks. We need you and BWD around to upload invaluable information for the masses to see and pass along. Not everyone receives emails from the DCCC or OFA and our links on a site in a comment just doesn’t always receive the attention that it needed. So from the bottom of my heart, PLEASE keep doing what you’re doing for us all !!!! 😀

    The Amazing Elizabeth Warren. Reposting link to her Chicago Humanities Festival Lecture which is just terrific. She talks a lot about herself in the beginning. Explaining how she got started. This is a mini course on the middle class and the financial problems they face. It also includes lots of good information on how the CFPB got established. In addition, there is a very sweet story where EW explains her first encounter with Barack Obama. It started with the words “predatory lending”. As EW said in the interview with Rachel Maddow, President Obama is responsible for making the CFPB a reality.

    Hey guys just found this: Stephen Colbert, It gets better. He’s such a sweetheart. Don’t forget to watch him tonight. He’s been A+ in his coverage of the GOP Presidential Candidates and the Murdoch hacking scandal.

    In honor of the certification of the repeal of DADT tomorrow, stating that the military doesn’t regard the repeal of this atrocious law as a hindrance to service members and their operations and in honor of the great job being carried out by our guy, our rockstar, our uniter, our fearless leader and our wonderful POTUS; here is President Obama, It gets better.
