    Mrs. Greenspan is now hammering Bill Burton about President Obama’s request to get in touch with representatives. He is not buying it.

      I’ve had enough of Mrs. Greenspan for one day. Especially after sharing her particular viewpoint on what rich people told her at some cocktail party last night. There’s the voice of the common man. Actually they pretty much said that there better be no default.

      Pat Toomey just now: “The House has done its job. Twice now.” Not if it can’t pass the Senate or be signed by the President!

      This particular frame does bother me though: it appeals to the low information voter. We passed a bill. It’s the President’s fault if we default if he doesn’t give in to our hostage-taking.

      It doesn’t matter what Greenspan says. Those voices will be raised again and again. They aren’t part of the solution and, in my opinion, they”re not worth paying attention to

          oooohhh thank you so much. Before my surgeries I played this, Theme to Rocky, and Requiem for a Dream constantly. Unfortunatly, the lyrics were on screen, so I HAD to sing along. I can barely master singing with my American accent, let alone a British one. Which leads my ADD brain to My Stephen breaking charcater with “our vaginas speak English.” (Ladies you can have your Jays. I’m good with S)

    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!!!!!

    I’ve called Cantor, Boehner, my GOP rep Dan Burton, McConnell and my GOP senator Lugar. They aren’t taking names or asking if I’m from their state.

    I had a long wait for Boehner so I read a book while I was on hold. I had the option to leave a message, but I wanted to speak to someone and it was very satisfying!

    I woke up with such a good feeling about it this morning. I think something wonderful is coming out of this. President Clinton said he would have invoked the 14th amendment. Some people were angry at him, but I didn’t see it as a criticism. I saw it as throwing his weight behind President Obama if he decides to use it. Clinton is respected and he has his own followers. I saw it as a powerful way for him to give the idea legitimacy. Steny Hoyer was said on MSNBC that he backed the President invoking the 14th amendment. President Obama didn’t telegraph what he was doing with Bin Laden. The President is cool, calm and collected. Whether it’s the 14th amendment or not, I believe he has this covered.

      I can’t respect Clinton when he fucked up DADT, DOMA, and contributed to this economy that PBO has to fix. Plus Clinton has always seemed jealous that PBO is being successful, that’s why he keeps on saying “Well if I were POTUS I’d do this.” Why not just say that PBO is doing an excellent job and keep it moving?

      It was Clinton’s big mouth that was in part to blame for Hillary’s loss to PBO, Clinton doesn’t know just when to shut up. Even Bush is keeping his mouth shut about PBO at this point.

        If Clinton’s big mouth had to do in part with Hillary losing then his big mouth was welcomed in this case. No, the real reason that Hillary lost was that the people wanted President Obama.

      Did you read where GWB is now trying to paint himself as the “calm” President. Some more KR crap talking here. Talking about why he did not get up from his reading in the classroom because of the kids? Well what about our friends’s kids whose daddy and mommies were being killed while he was sitting there looking like a foolish person.? I know kids. They can process somethings, if you present it correctly better than we can. I can think of many things that he should have done and could have done in that setting. Oh, I will not allow GWB to piss me off any more than I am already. Forget it. Man up of shut up Mr. Bush.
