    Hey guys our President and his team are BLOODY BRILLIANT!!!!! They’ve literally taken the fightback to twitter. This is what the GOP congressmembers, teabaggers, and GOP presidential candidates don’t understand. When it comes to technology they CAN’T beat and they don’t even come close to overtaking the candidate and his team who harnessed the internet, won the Presidency, and continue to OWN the technological machine. President Obama’s team have been tweeting the twitter handles of GOP congressmen and urging all their over 9 million followers to tweet them and DEMAND a bi-partisan compromise. Can we all say PRESIDENT OBAMA IS A FREAKING GENIUS!!!!!

    Cruising the blogosphere and the PL smells (Obama’s) blood in the water. They are out gloating big time over the gdp and his poll numbers. Then I hear something about Conyers blasting him for whatever and the media doing both sides and the House working to make sure the economy tanks. I’m pretty down already personally and can’t stomach any of this other crap.

        Indeed we will. The liberal left can go fuck themselves for getting us in this scenario.

        If they had shown up to vote in 2010, then at least we wouldn’t have as many Teapugs in the House as we do now. But the Teapugs control the House, all because the loud loony left just couldn’t stand the fact that the Dems in Congress are moderate and they wanted Congress to be overrun with the likes of Alan Grayson. Yeah, just what we need: a bully on the left who gets NOTHING done but continuing political theatrics. PBO gets things done, but the loud loony left says he’s spineless, is a failure, is a right wing DLC Republican Wall street lackey who bends over too much for Republicans/the right, and they wonder why they are not invited to the adults table. Fuck em all! PBO doesn’t need their bitchin!

      gobrooklyn, the PL are Republicans. Let’s call it as it is. They are rooting for Republicans. They want this president to fail. Conyers, Tavis and West are gettig paid from the same bankroll that funds the teaparty, PL and these virulent anti-Obama folks. They are all united in their JEALOUS hatred of this President.

      The media, PL and GOP are all hoping to have a redux of the HCR’s toll on the President with this debt ceiling negotiation. Their polls are SKEWED, their reporting about GDP is highly selective and biased. So I would take their “reports” on his poll numbers and GDP with the appropriate amount of salt.

      Gobrooklyn, remember this: Like all other situations, their “gloating” will be short-lived. Mark my words.
      They will FAIL. In fact they are already failing, which is why they are desperately using this distraction of GDP and poll numbers.

        Of course the PL are Republicans. Arianna Huffington hangs out with Newt Gingrich and Darrell Issa, Glenn Greenwald has ties to the CATO Institute, Jane Hamsher is working with Grover Norquist, and they indeed cheer on the Teapugs and blame it squarely at PBO’s feet. If they had voted last fall, we’d probably have not as many Teapugs in the House as there are now. They all need a huge can of STFU!!!

    Guys the pushback and response from people on twitter has been AMAZING!!!!! I love how President Obama has been calm but LETHAL. Everytime he comes out he has another bazooka of a zinger up his sleeves. First he tells people to call, email, and fax. Now he tells people to go on twitter and tweet their congressmen and what does he do? He provides them with the means to get their message across. His team has been providing the names of GOP congressmen and their twtter handles to his over 9 million followers and it has been getting retweeted on a MASSIVE SCALE. Teabaggers on twitter have been going NUTS with anger and they can’t accept the truth that President Obama has NEVER lost his real base no matter what lies the media peddles. I’ve been retweeting his tweets and other messages and all of a sudden I got attacked by a deluge of them (teabaggers). I even got attacked by one of the tea party nation founders and his folllowers ( I was amused that lil’ skinny 5ft 6 inches me and my tweets got noticed by a tea party nation founder; made me chuckle 😆 ) But they have no clue who they are messing with. I told them, it says so on my profile page: I am a PROUD Democrat and Obama supporter and I will NEVER hesitate or backdown from CALLING OUT GOP, MEDIA, PL, AND TEABAGGER LIES!!! Their collective heads are spinning because of the truth that I and many others are sending their way. The backlash began because teabgger Rep Joe Walsh got exposed for not paying child support, being a dead beat dad, and all around hypocrite and people CALLED HIM OUT full blast on twitter and now the teabaggers are desperate because America is waking up and with the help of President Obama their power is slip, slip, slipping away. So keep up the goodwork Obamabots with twitter, emails, faxes, and phonecalls because our VOICES WILL NEVER BE SILENCED!!! 😀

      if she is on twitter PLEASE tell the cunt (I really really really sincerely APOLOGIZE to Chip and to EVERYONE here) to shut the hell up about the President and have the courage to call him a N*gger since she’s called him everything (so far) but that.

        turned her weekly Journal effort into plotting out ways to express her irrational contempt for the president.

      I sent Ms. Noonan an email this morning and I told her that I wasn’t going to debate with her about what she think of President Obama. I said you have a right to think what you want about this President, just like I have a right to think what I want about Ronald Reagen. I didn’t back then, and I don’t today think Reagen was a good President, nor was any other Republican who held the office after him. Specially the last one we were torture to live through for eight years. I told her I voted for President Obama in 2008 and I plan to vote for him in 2012. I told her that I plan to an to get out there and fight to re-elect this President. I will fight till I can’t fight anymore. I ask her how in the world do she think this President could deal with a bunch of radical racists Republian terrorists. Who’s only goal is to bring him down, but it won’t work Ms. Noonan, you can count on that.

        July 29, 2011 at 4:17 pm

        Noonan is trying to use her national platform to send a specific message to PBO: Shut up and let the GOP have whatever it wants. Her hate for him has become more profound recently because she knows that he doesn’t give a $h!t about anything she has to say. She’s so full of herself that she feels he MUST kiss her azzz, but he won’t, and he never will . I’ve always believed that a major reason the rw agitators hate PBO so much is that, in spite of their constant attacks on him, he doesn’t give them the time of day. That’s a clear F-U message that PBO sends to them, and we know they get it because they keep crying out for his attention.

Stop with the games and putting party before country.” Only one today and I believe one yesterday ask where I was calling from. My answer: I am calling from Knoxville so I am not a constituent, but I am an resident of TN and more importantly, I am an American citizen.” Was given no problem.

Another thing you could do is pick off an area code in his district. Make up a name and address if you want to use a MCDees or something for the address. They really only weed out people by area code.

      Good luck and stay at it! I’ve got my oldest Grandson tweeting and all three of my daughters. ‘H’ has the day off so she can really go at it.

              I’m not sure it was badly handled…..

              – How can you reason with the insane? You can’t shout, or they crawl into their CrazyCave®. You can’t bully, they will only become louder Tantrum Toddlers. These people are not based in REALITY, so behaving in a normal way, won’t work. How is it that only Obama can see that clearly?

              – The LAST THING President Obama can EVER BE (as mush as we’d all love it) is be an ANGRY BLACK MAN. (How well has that worked out for Alan West?) Clinton, FDR, Ike, could all get angry. Obama KNOWS he doesn’t have that luxury.

              – PBO asked for a clean bill. The GOP saw and grabbed an opportunity to tie it to their ransom demand. How’s that been working out for them?

              – Every single day that goes by, more people are PAYING ATTENTION, LEARNING what the Debt Ceiling IS and what the consequences are if there is a DEFAULT (Millions of Americans have been late on their CCs and had their rates go up, have lost their homes because they couldn’t pay their mortgage, etc….. have declared BK, and had their own PERSONAL credit ratings lowered – they UNDERSTAND.)

              – Every single day MORE PEOPLE SIDE WITH THE POTUS and want to TAX THE RICH & CORPORATIONS.

              – Every single day MORE PEOPLE see how insane the Teaparty is, how much they hate the GOV and want to destroy it. That all their hate is based on one man and so deep they’re willing to destroy the country because of it. They are GOLEM, and will jump into The Fires of Mordor to get The One Ring – even if that destroys them all.

              – Every single day MORE PEOPLE see WHO IS RESPONSIBLE for this mess – two wars, tax cuts for the rich – all that weren’t paid for, or on the books and never in any budget.

              – Every single day the GOP HouseOfCrazy® gets more dysfunctional. And the GOP/Teaspoons OWN THAT.

              – Every single day MORE PEOPLE understand that the Government actually DOES create jobs. More jobs in fact, than ANY private company, and NEEDS MONEY TO DO IT.

              – Every single day MORE PEOPLE see that the GOV NEEDS MONEY if there is an EMERGENCY – and a “Balanced Budget Amendment” would be ultimately harmful because the Constitution can’t make Earthquakes and Hurricanes illegal. That we have to have MONEY if China decides they want to attack us.


              – Every single day MORE PEOPLE SEE that President Obama is THE ONLY ADULT IN THE ROOM.

              – Every single day the GOP/KOCH INC MEDIA sees how fast a majority of Americans answer PBO’s CALL TO ACTION.

              – Every single day MORE PEOPLE are figuring out that the GOP are only CUTTING JOBS (FAA, etc…..) not creating them.

              – Every single day MORE PEOPLE are seeing there isn’t much of a difference between Bin Laden & Al Qaeda wanting to destroy the US Economy and the Tea Party wanting the same thing.

              – Every single day we get closer to President Obama getting exactly what he wanted: A CLEAN BILL, NO SPENDING CUTS, and will he will ALLOW THE BUSH TAX CUTS EXPIRE.

              There will be no invoking of the 14th, because EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. MORE PEOPLE are reading “Section 5: The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.” and understand this is the job of CONGRESS, and they’re LEGALLY BOUND TO RAISE IT, or declare the debt ceiling unconstitutional.

              The longer this goes on, the bigger Obama’s EPIC WIN will be. I doubt if the EmoProgs will ever see it. They’ve become more concerned with the process than the outcome. Obama could walk on water, and they’d moan that he was being lazy for swimming.

              Stay strong people. Believe. CHILL THE FUCK OUT – HE’S GOT THIS.

                You can’t reason with them, therefore you don’t even try. Insist on a clean bill, educate the public early what this thing is all about, how it was done so many times in the past with no problem. I know what PBO was trying to do, what he always does – put country first, try to get things done – but at some point you have to realize that it’s not possible with these jerks and when you try and fail, the public blame you. We can’t afford losing him next year and I really think that after this nonsense ends, he need to start doing things that will fire people up – not the Daily Kos idiots, but ordinary Dems and real supporters who are being fed with lies 24/7 and begin to believe them.

                  I agree. Again. I’ve had many reservations about how this has gone down.

                  I do think that Obama is truly afraid that if we don’t tackle the debt we face downgrade. I agree that he meant what he said. I always wished he had a few more progressive economists on his economic team. Although I read something earlier that quoted Geithner from February that he did not want debt negotiations as part of the raising of the debt ceiling. I have been very concerned about attaching changes this important to the debt ceiling bill — the consequences of even the precedent of doing this are huge. The changes offered with no time for serious debate always bothered me. The politics and the optics are difficult to fight. You don’t have to be PL to have legitimate concerns. I see support for this wonderful President ebbing from people who are natural supporters. This was dangerous territory to cede to loons, who could have said ‘yes’ at any time. History is not kind to austerity choices in a time of recession — I don’t know if this time it would have been different. I don’t see why.

                  It’s been to our advantage, pathetically so, that Republicans have been shown for the monsters that they are. But I feel we’re at a tipping point — everyone’s patience is at an end and the low information voter is looking for the easy answer. They don’t care who they blame (hence the misnomer ‘independent’), as long as they have someone to blame.

              • July 29, 2011 at 5:15 pm

                BTW, I disagree that he wanted a clean bill. I don’t think it was a show. I think he really wanted to do something big about the deficit. I have some criticism about that too, but it’s for another day. 🙂

I know we are up against an unprecedented amount of HATE, but I will not let that douse my support for PBO or turn my enthusiasm sour. I have been through a lot in my 48 years and have seen a lot. PBO has seen a lot and been through a lot. We are almost the same age. We are 21 months apart. That’s the closest in age I have ever been with a sitting president.

                WE have to remember PBO is use to this rough and tumble. He street organized in Chi-town. If you can survive their politics you can survive pretty much anything. KEEP HOPE ALIVE!!

              blackwaterdog, I’m not going to buy your doom and gloom. And my head is not in the sand. First of all there is no GOP candidate, the race has not begun. When you see this President standing on stage debating Bachmann or Romney, the people will have a choice to make, the election haven’t even begun and you sound like we all should give up. People are not stupid, they see what these Republicans are all about, and as far as the economy goes, we have a divided government, meaning the Republicans run the House and what have they done for the economy? Where are their job bills? This crisis wasn’t manage badly, it was a made up crisis, it didn’t have to be. And when I have step forward to talk to someone over and over again, but all they have done was walked out, slam the door in my face, tell me if I can’t get everything I want. then we can’t talk. That is the B.S this President have had to deal with. And I will stand down anyone who try to blame the President for this mess, because they are wrong.

      We have PL media hacks like Fineman who don’t mind bragging to the moon that PBO caved and allowed the Republicans to win, even if it’s an outright lie.

      We have PL in Congress like Conyers and Sanders who never get shit done, but point the finger at PBO and say it’s HIS fault.

      And then we have the Teapugs who don’t know shit about government, but because the loony left believed more in ideological fantasy, now hold the keys to the debt ceiling.

      We need to call the PL and Teapugs out and make them feel the heat and pressure.

And I don’t think the public is as ignorant as you think, they see what these Tea-Republicans are willing to put this country through, they see who’s side the Tea-Republicans are on.

Defaulting on our obligations and losing our Triple A credit rating affects all Americans especially the middle class, seniors, students, business community, home owners, any one with credit cards and lower income folks. We are going to be hit hard.

      PO is fine. His bills will be paid. This isn’t about his numbers nor do I think he cares. This is not about the President, it is about these nut jobs who are so hell bent on railing against government, they would rather burn the house down. This is about the American people and our livelihoods. If the GOP succeeds we are up sh*ts creek with no toilet paper.

      Aug 2 is four days away. So POs poll numbers is the least of my concerns. So what can we do? Call, email, fax, tweet . . . we can do this. Can’t afford to get side tracked. We can do this.

    Phishing usually comes in Direct Messages from your friends who have been hacked. Weird messages like “Is this your blog”? “I found this photo of you.” with a link that looks like the twitter sign in page…..


    Always Check that You’re at Twitter.com Before Logging In
    Phishing is when someone tries to trick you into giving up your username and password, usually so they can send out spam to all your followers from your account. Often, they’ll try to trick you with a link that goes to a fake login page.

    Be wary of weird links in DMs: Be cautious when clicking on odd links in DMs. Even if the link came from a friend, it’s possible that their account was compromised and the URL was actually sent out by a spammer.

      Tally you are so FREAKING RIGHT!!! When I called out Jane Hamsher, Adam Green, other PL types, GOP, and teabaggers on twitter, all of a sudden I started getting links from their collective followers that looked highly suspicious because whenever I placed a mouse over the link it would have another link that also had cookies attached to it. So I never clicked on them. But when I was in school, I decided to use the college library computer to check out the links because my college has high tech firewalls and security software and when I clicked on them the school computer immediately warned me that it was a malicious link connected to a malicious website and the software immediately deleted all those links for me so my twitter account was protected. So guys, heed Tally’s warning because your friends and followers accounts can be hacked and people can send you messed up links in a Direct Message or a login page. If they’re (teabaggers, PL, and the like) pissed at the pushback they’re recieving they go on the attack with malicious links. Keep up the good fight Obamabots!!!

I don’t ever remember seeing one single report about the public sending a “mandate” when they were voting in huge #s of Democrats in 2006 and 2008, and of course when they voted in President Barack Hussein Obama in an historic landslide.

        Where was all this mandate talk when Repubs, and several fake Dems, have consistently tried to stop every single little thing President Obama has attempted to do since the day he came into office? He’s been trying to do exactly what he campaigned on going back to the Stimulus and before, which is why a huge majority of the American public voted for him in first place, yet all a Repub has to do is claim that “the public” wants them to obstruct, and the MegaMedia happily amplifies without any question whatsoever.

        Break up and/or replace the MegaMedia now! It’s our only hope.

        Democrats supported the ‘mandate’ by not voting. Again.

    Just got a cool email:

    TELL CONGRESS, “Oppose the Boehner Budget Control Act, It’s Morally Bankrupt”


    Today, the House of Representatives is preparing to vote on a controversial debt ceiling package that would unjustly shift the financial burden onto the poor and seniors while giving the wealthy tax breaks. The bill, officially called the Budget Control Act of 2011, authored by Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), would reduce budget deficits by about $915 billion over 10 years through Fiscal Year 2021 (National Journal). Furthermore, the bill would cut benefits for Social Security and Medicare beneficiaries.

    In January democrats in the House of Representatives succeeded their majority stronghold to the republicans, leaving democrats to marginally control the Senate under a campaigning democratic President. Since then, Congress has been engaged in a fierce partisan tug-of-war battle between House versus Senate. We cannot allow our federal lawmakers to morally bankrupt our most vulnerable citizens because it is politically expedient. Passing the Boehner Budget Control Act is simply unconscionable and is not what we elected them to do.

    TAKE ACTION NOW: Contact Every Member on Target List

    There’s still hope for our side, but time is running out! Speaker Boehner needs 216 votes to pass the bill in order to send to the Senate before the August 2nd deadline. However after postponing the vote twice, clearly Speaker Boehner does not have all the support he needs. The National Journal has compiled a list of members who are likely to vote no, leaning no or undecided. We need you to contact every person from your state on our target list and tell them to:

    “Oppose the Boehner Budget Control Act of 2011. A vote in favor of this bill is a vote against America’s poor and seniors. It is morally bankrupt and fiscally unsound. This is not what I elected you to do.”

    Regardless of what happens in the House of Representatives several hurdles remain. In the Senate, under the leadership of Harry Reid (D-NV), there is insufficient support for the Boehner Budget Control Act of 2011. To that end they have drafted their own version which has the support of the Association of AARP, a formidable advocacy group for senior citizens. Furthermore, President Obama has stated that he will veto the House version of the bill. Unfortunately, the August 2nd deadline is just days away and there is little agreement among lawmakers from the White House to Capitol Hill. Yet, there is one caveat thanks to the foresight of the Founding Fathers. It is possible that in order to avert a default of catastrophic implications, President Obama could usurp Congress and use his Presidential power to execute the law by preempting the “full faith and credit” clause of the U.S. Constitution (Article IV, Section 1). Time will soon tell how this ends.

    CALL OUT FOR ASSISTENCE. . I am in Kansas, you know the red state like dorothy’s sliippers in Wizard of OZ. My district votes Democratic all the time KC area and KU University. I have been calling Congressman Kevin Yoder but need help, He is hiding out from his constiuents. Scheduled a townhall meeting last week and then called it off after leaving people waiting in the hot sun including a 90 year old woman. He went to KU on pell grants and then voted against them for Kansas, I need someone who TWEETS TO HAMMER HIM since I don’t tweet but will learn how soon.

    Since his election Yoder has been one of the most pathetic rubber stamps for Boehner and Cantor, voting an astounding– especially considering the make-up of the district– 98% of the time with the GOP leadership. even when he wants to do the right thing, and vote in the interests of his constituents, he’s too frightened to. He voted, along with most of his party, to drastically cut student aid on the college level, gutting the Pell Grant program and eliminating all funding for SEOG and LEAP.My granddaughter depends on those grants and I am 69 yrs young and on SS and Medicare. Please help. thanks.

      • July 29, 2011 at 5:56 pm

        Yes, Ladyhawke. The media is where I was informed about his cancellation. They know me in Washington and here in Kansas because of my calls and emails. The one thing they wanted me to know was that he is not a teapartier and has signed not contract with anyone.

    • July 29, 2011 at 5:50 pm

      Are you anywhere near his district office? You could actually go there and drop off a written message. If you decide to do this, hand write it out rather than type write it if you can, short and simple. Please be sure to add to the message that that he is required and duty bound by his oath to the Constitution to be accessible to his constituents.

      Good Luck!

    Speaker In Name Only John Boehner couldn’t even educate his freshmen house members on the debt limit as he promised. They don’t seem to understand that the debt limit has nothing to do with spending. It merely allows the government to borrow to pay for bills that congress has already incurred. The United States is not a deadbeat nation, we pay our bills. The default would mean a tax increase for everybody.

    FLASHBACK: Speaker Boehner Promised To “Educate” Far-Right Members On Default

    “This is going to be probably the first really big adult moment” for the new Republican majority, Boehner told me. “You can underline ‘adult.’ And for people who’ve never been in politics it’s going to be one of those growing moments. It’s going to be difficult, I’m certainly well aware of that. But we’ll have to find a way to help educate members and help people understand the serious problem that would exist if we didn’t do it.”

    Obviously, Boehner has not backed up his words with action.

    After threatening to intentionally create an economic “disaster” (his word) if President Obama did not consent to outsized spending cuts, Boehner was unable to get enough Republican support to pass a dangerous plan so partisan that every single congressional Democrat vowed to oppose it. Instead of attempting to craft a plan that the Senate can pass and Obama will sign, Boehner is appeasing far-right Republicans by adding the fantasy of a constitutional amendment to his already toxic plan.

    Just four days before the Treasury’s deadline for default, Speaker Boehner is replacing a plan that has no chance of becoming law with a plan that leaders in his own party have called “unrealistic” and “foolish.” So much for Boehner’s “big adult moment.”

    Hi Everyone… Lookie what I found over at HPuff of all places. Here is the President ace in the hole. ( I hope )

    The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive (National Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51/Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-20, sometimes called simply “Executive Directive 51” for short), created and signed by United States President George W. Bush on May 4, 2007, is a Presidential Directive which claims power to execute procedures for continuity of the federal government in the event of a “catastrophic emergency”. Such an emergency is construed as “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.

    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?

    So, on that note, we all should do not only what Pres. Obama said, but also what Bruce said. And that is… “Let ’em hear you in Washington!!”

    From California, to the New York Island
    From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
    This land was made for you and me

    Let’s TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK. Of course, it’s their country also, but it’s obvious that we will be the ones to make sure that we are able to treat it as such…
