    PBO is the man!

    • July 29, 2011 at 7:20 pm

      Hi ninetendow, I was just reading on TPV and apparently John Conyers went to a poverty house to speak and tore PBO to shreds. I am spreading the word. We need to tell him how we feel about this.

      He is always ragging on the president anyway. But to tell these people that he is going to cut their social security and medicare is outrageous. Help me please.

      I have been in more of a reading period rather than commenting.

        John Conyer is no better then West and Tavis, They are in bed with the rich, they get paid to do things like that. Tavis is one of the reason a lot of blacks lose their home, lying to them about the banks, the banks paid him to go in the black community and tell them lies. Conyer is in the pocket of the rich, He tell those people who don’t have an education those lies and they believe him. In the black community where my daughter work, some black people were tell the poor people that Obama was goning to take away their food stamp,ect and they believe them because they live in the communtiy, also they pay some of the poor folk to say those thing too.

        John Conyers is an old toothless lion in Detroit. His wife is in prison and he is still fighting in the closet. He carries no weight unless you give credence to his words. Ignore him.

        • July 30, 2011 at 2:03 pm

          John Conyers need to get his own house in order. I’m so sick of him with his attacks on our President but was silent as lamb while Bush was driving the country into a ditch.

    This is a shame, this man trying to get the African Nation to do right by it people and he is mistreated my his own people
    I’ m tired of this madness. I know God is in control of this, I believe he letting the world see just how ugly the USA. After this the USA can not tell the rest of the world a dame thing. But I do believe God is using Obama to show up the USA. How can we tell china and any other country to treat their people right, when the USA mistreat this President. I feel like Obama is the sacrifice because God is tired of the USA hypocrisy ways. We who don’t believe some of this is racial is in the denial. This is not just about a Democrat President the air ways are just to dam ugly. The Media, PL, Republican church folks and others include the ugliness coming from some black people. they hate him for nothing he have not done nothing wrong, just trying to help people WWJD. I know Clinton and Bush was hammer but they did not go after them personal except Clinton because he did you know what in the white house, they act like Obama have kill someone. Yell BL. I sometime think he should not run in 2012, just go home and enjoy his friends and family and let the USA be-dame. Then I wake up and think God got a Plan. Just be patient God is not through with him yet.

    Hahahahahahahahahaha 😆 😆 😆 Did anyone see Boehner’s opening speech on the house floor when introducing his bill? I just LAUGHED MY FUCKING HEAD OFF!!! Hahahaha. He kept yelling and posturing as though he was in control of his caucus. He kept yelling that he’s passed two bills in the house and sent it to the senate and the senate vetoed it. He kept yelling that he has this wonderful bill and it has full teaparty support and it shows his strength as a speaker and the strength of the GOP caucus. That’s when I almost lost my damn mind laughing like The Joker had just blown his toxic lauging powder in my face. Hahahaha. This is the same idiot who couldn’t get ANY support from teabaggers yesterday and had to cancel the vote. This is the idiot who had to CRAWL on his knees, GROVEL, and practically promise his first born to the teabaggers just so he could get their vote. This is the idiot who had to furiously rewrite his bill and add a BBA just so he could garner some teabagger vote. This is the same idiot who was just yelling on the house floor that Reagan would be proud of the current GOP caucus for “getting things done.” This is the same idiot whose entire speech was about himself and comparing himself President Obama. How he’s stronger than President Obama, how he loooooves this country, how he wants to stop President Obama from reckless spending, how he wants to concentrate on jobs and President Obama doesn’t care about the economy. This is the same idiot who’s had his balls held in a chokehold by Cantor and the teabaggers from day one of his speakership. This is the idiot who is posturing over a bill that is DOA in the senate. Will wonders, bloviated egos, and hubris on the side of the politically toasted never cease?

    ps: Boehner’s amended CRAP, DOA in the senate bill just passed with 218 Yeas and 210 Nays. Happy to report that NO democrat voted for the bill which included a BBA. Also some teabaggers voted against the bill. We now look towards Reid’s bill.

The world sees what a special Man Mr. Obama is, and the whole world knows that Mr. Obama is God sent, now i don’t believe Americans deserve Him but as a Black Man it is only Fitting that, that is what it takes to bring this country back to greatness A Black Man. Very Ironic …..Wouldn’t you say……. OBAMA2012.

      Dun, I understand your points, but remember President Obama has told us before, that he is not a quitter, and he also said we do not quit. I have shed many tears wrapped with some of the same feelings as you, but then I remember how hard those young people especially and older people of all groups in our country worked so hard to catch on to this great President’s vision and elected him as our President. It will be rough, but he will not quit, not now. We need to hold onto this great man. Be encouraged, we can do this. Now keep calm and remember to lean with your faith and your goodness. We can do this together. I love you and I know we as a fmily here will be able to do this. Stay firm, okay.

    A bit off topic, but I just viewed a trailer of a new film from George Lucas about the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American pilots to fly in a combat squadron during World War II.

    It looks pretty good but what really caught my eye was the opening day – January 20th, 2012!

I follow @BarackObama on twitter and I just checked and he has 9,363,360 followers. That’s over 9 million followers.

    • July 29, 2011 at 7:15 pm

      I just read he lost 10,000, pissed off because he “spammed” them this morning urging them to contact Congress.

    • July 29, 2011 at 7:20 pm

      So now he only has 9 363 008 followers – with that many to only lose 30K isn’t at all newsworthy given a fair number of those just probably unfollowed for the tweet wave of the day and will re-follow soon enough.

      A silly non-story really. Typical CNN.

      I bet President Obama has more followers than all of the GOP House Reps, Senators and Presidential Candidates combined.

But like our family members have stated above so beautifully, what he still has and more will come into this journey. The fight is to keep the facts alive with our work and lean on the good and decent things about our President. Hell, excuse, this President has done more in 2 1/2 years than many have done in a decade. So stay focus. When we know the facts and truths about President Obama, let us shout those through the roof. The negative is not the focus he still has over(if this is true) 8 or more millions. That is positive. We are still here, and I will be here in support of our President for the long haul. Keep it positive.

        Really! What chance does a Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Tim Pawlenty, or Jon Huntsman have of defeating PBO?

        I mean the media were saying he wouldn’t defeat Hillary Clinton during the primaries, he did. Then they were saying that he wouldn’t defeat John McCain, and he did.

        Of course right now it looks like PBO won’t be re elected, but that’s because PBO hasn’t gotten into campaign mode. Once he is in campaign mode, and he has a clear Republican opponent, he WILL get re elected because we will work to win the support of many of the same folks who voted for PBO and then some!

On an even playing field PBO would win by a LANDSLIDE vs any of those opponents. I say even playing field because there is a whole lot of voter disenfranchisement going on and then we have the infamous Diebold voting machines that can be easily manipulated. We will have to work for every vote in 2012 and hope they all get counted. Obama/Biden 2012!!

    CNN ignores how the House passed Bonehead’s crap and is instead reporting how PBO lost a bunch of followers on Twitter. They just can’t get off the “ZOOOOOOOOOOMG, PBO has lost/is losing his base!” angle from the PL.

    Since PBO has over 9 mill followers, losing 30,000 is no biggie. That’s what, 10-20% of his followers? Even though I suck at math, sounds about right, but CNN decides to report how PBO lost 10-20% of his Twitter followers, like ZOMMMMMMMMMG! It’s the end of Obama’s Presidency because he lost some followers on Twitter!

    I’m willing to bet those 30,000 were probably paid Koch Bros/Teapug lackeys spamming PBO’s Twitter with negative comments attempting to turn the tide against PBO, yet CNN thinks it’s more important than reporting on the BBA Bonehead passed. This is why I ignore CNN, they are bending more rightward with each passing day.

    I can see where folks are letting all this get to them, and yes, it has been a long process, and still counting with all the theatricals, but you have to stay strong and keep the faith. It’s all good, no matter what. Never forget that these evil folks have dedicated their lives to Rovian tactics and are good at it, therefore they do what they do best. Meanwhile we have to do what we do better and keep on keeping on.If the Prez can take it, so can we. Learn to tune out from the haters, and yes,they are all around. Fight fire with fire, but never quit, as that is when they go into overdrive and get control.
    BWD, I feel ya, but don’t let the *uckers get to you.We are all human and sometimes it all takes its toll. Let it. When you are ready go again. Let’s not allow ourselves to get overly affected by what is reported/said/thought by the slackers and novices that are the negative msm.
    Onward forward. Power to the people!

    Here’s my letter to the DCCC re Rep. Conyers. I encourage everyone to let the DCCC know how you feel about Mr. Conyers and his lies.

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I’ve been a regular contributor to the DCCC for the past couple of months, mostly due to the stellar work that Steve Israel and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz have been doing during this manufactured debt crisis.

    I have just heard that Rep. John Conyers has been shredding President Obama in town halls, claiming that he’s about to gut Social Security and Medicare. Rep. Conyers is a respected member of the House and the Democratic Caucus, and for him to spread such outright lies speaks ill of him and of the DCCC. As necessary as it is for the Democratic Party to regain control of the House in 2012, I cannot sit idly by while Mr. Conyers spreads complete falsehoods about the President. Unless I am assured that money from the DCCC will not go to those “Democrats” who miss no opportunity to disparage this President, I’m afraid I will have to cease my contributions, and instead send money directly Obama-supporting candidates.

      I hate to say this but whenever I listen to Conyers, it appears that he has a mild case of altheimers. Sometimes, he appears on The Bill Press Shiw and I find it hard to listen to hiim. I am sure that PBO would meet with him if he has a beef with him. You would think that he would be grateful and try to push the success of the auto industry instead of telling this big lie. This is quite serious. I will contact the DCCC also.

        Conyers is an old confused man whose wife committed political suicide in Detroit and is serving time for her crimes and Conyers doesn’t want to go home to Detroit. He’s a toothless lion who really needs to sit and be quiet. If Nancy Pelosi gets wind of his vemon, she’ll deal with him!

      LL, I had decided a bit ago that DCCC will not get my money until its members grow spines and close their stupid mouths. I just explained this to a solicitor not two weeks ago. As for Conyers, this is a man who has always found some nonsense to spit on PBO’s plans from the day PBO took office. And has been talking behind his back. Remember hearing about the time PBO approached him on the floor and asked him why he does this……Conyers fires off to the media the details of the exchange. It has been high time for his ass to take a break and go the hell home as he has definitely lost all facility of legislating anything.

    Kucinich and conyers should be stopped immediately for spewing lies.
    OT: IMHO I would argue people who feel down and discouraged to read The Promise by Jonathan Alters. Nothing this man has accomplished has come easy. We need to stay strong during the home stretch and keep up the positive energy up.

        Larry O mocked Bonehead’s speech that he gave to the Teapugs, and threw back Bonehead’s piece to the New Yorker on how Bonehead said that the TeaPugs would have an adult moment in raising the debt ceiling. Pretty much just exposing how Bonehead wasted time for political theater to make himself look good for the Teapugs and how his “adult moment” isn’t happening because of the Teapugs acting like children.

        Kent Conrad on now.

    Just heard David Schuster say that Ralph Nader and a liberal group are forming a coalition to primary PBO. I can’t believe this man is rearing his ugly head at this time.

    • July 29, 2011 at 8:25 pm

      Yeah, and I’m sure the Koch money will fucking roll into their group. I think I’ve actually reached my fucking limit. Pardon my language, but I’m just seething with anger right now.

          I would not even worry about Ralphie Boy, emaciated and fickle fucking trouble maker. Does nothing all year, you don’t even hear his voice. All he will ever be known for is being a spoiler and a forever loser. And anyone stupid enough to listen to him, will just be replaced by new voters. Let’s be vigilant.

            Ralph Nader isn’t even a Democrat! I know the Green party has been playing some funny games infiltrating the Democratic party and now they want to run the half-dead, do nothing Ralph Nader?! You’ve got to be kidding! What a joke!

    • July 29, 2011 at 8:33 pm

      I heard him on tv saying he was going to primary PBO. You Know they want him to fail just as bad as the Republican. The Republican, Rich folk, PL,clinton support, jealous blacks /racist democrat will supply the money for nader to primary Obama. Look for this to happen.

        ……..and they obvously know Nader can’t win, but they want to weaken PBO for the general election. They would rather have a Corporate Bitch of any Rethug persuasion in the WH than a Community Organizer that puts the middle class first. Keep Hope Alive!!!

    • July 30, 2011 at 6:41 am

      Yes ago when Nader was truly working for the people I respected him. Then when he keep running for President, knowing he wouldn’t win, it seem like it was all about Ralph. He need to go some where and retire. people are sick of him, I know I am.

    UCLA law professor on LOD saying rethugs have already violated Article 4 of 14th Amendment by using it for political purposes, so PBO can officially use this means of raising the ceiling in emergency. My short version, UT is better at the full synopsis. Hit it UT :-d

    They are looking to Primary President Obama. I believe there is a LOT of folks that FEAR this man because of his BRILLIANCE and he has become very POWERFUL. Especially with this AUTO deal just made. The HATE is unbelievable!! 😯

    I believe there are actually Libs/Progressives that wouldn’t actually mind a Romney or Bachmann as president. It is obvious. They are turning their backs on PBO. Even with that I am not giving up!!

    • 126 EDP4BHO
      July 29, 2011 at 8:56 pm

      Keith, these people have not, in my belief, turned their backs on PBO, because they were never there in the first place. Anyone who understood PBO will not take someone else over him, because PBO has not changed, and has done and is doing everything he said he would. I hear people on local radio voice their frustrations of certain issues with the President, but say they will still support him. This is done usually after someone has reasoned with them. We have to realize and accept that this country is chock full of politically and civically illiterate people who understand life only through their own narrow prisms. Thus the need for more indepth education.

    • July 29, 2011 at 10:06 pm

      Keith I can’t believe that these people will vote for Bachmann or Romney. I pray that when it comes times to vote they would realize that Obama is the only choice.
