    How is Gallup today? Hoping better after news of the tour is spread, at least a bit better. I know that I have defensively asserted on this site that daily trackers aren’t diagnostic of much, but any movement up from 39% will make me happy. Why not look it up myself? I admit it, I’m a nervous nellie, and that mouse click to Gallup is too anxiety-producing. If there is good news, or bad, I’d rather see it here where I feel among friends.
    Why Gallup? Because for all my 46 years, it is used by the media as the touchstone for “trend” narratives.

      Crickets DTTM. The MSM is on a mission and they are succeeding. All we can do is push back the best we can. I won’t go to Gallup and there have been NO responses as of yet. 😦

      You don’t want to know. I’m not a CT (DKOS term – conspiracy theorist) but in THIS case. And speaking of blogs like DK, they’re probably involved. Blech. But it’s WAAAAY early.

        He snarkily said that he tried as much as he could to get PBO to answer his questions specifically and not generally. Now he’s freaking interrupting PBO. The interview is going to be airing in parts throughout the show, so that Wolf aka Leslie can hear himself speak. Jerk.

        Something about being a one term president
        Another question about cuts to medicare I think

        Lets just say he’s looking for sound bites.

        Now it’s Briana something who’s talking, ok back to the idiot, now they’re talking about Perry.

        Wolf Blitzer called the President, Mr. Obama…typical

        The interview is not on yet, it was just a clip.

    Leslie Blitzer is interrupting our President.

    • August 16, 2011 at 5:13 pm

      A little OT but we know we can count on Randi Rhodes to get the word out about Perry. She says that she is moving out of the country if he wins president. The Texas statistics are stunning. It seems to be a lot of complacency there. I will try and watch Leslie Blitzer later. I hit the record button and hopefully I can fast forward thru most of it.

        Pushing Ron Paul now, thanks Jon Stewart. They got the memo. This is so disgusting, ok I can’t watch this, I’ll wait for UT recap and a clip of the interview. I get sick to my stomach watching CNN.

    Peosta, Iowa (CNN) — President Barack Obama was largely dismissive of the Republican presidential field Tuesday, claiming that he’s not thinking too much about any of his potential 2012 opponents at the moment.

    “I’ll let (the Republicans) winnow it down a little bit,” Obama told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in a one-on-one interview. But once the GOP chooses a presidential standard bearer for 2012, “I’ll be ready for them,” the president promised.

    Obama made his remarks during what many analysts have characterized as a three-day campaign-style swing through the key Midwestern states of Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois.

    Asked to respond to Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s assertion that members of the armed services would prefer a commander in chief who served in the military, Obama said presidential candidates have “got to be careful” about what they say. But as Perry just got into the presidential race, Obama said, he will “cut (Perry) some slack” for the moment.

    Regarding former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s remarks that “corporations are people,” Obama conceded that corporations play a critical role in the generation of wealth but stressed his disagreement with some conservatives over the closure of tax loopholes benefiting certain major corporations.

    “If you tell me that corporations are vital to American life, that the free enterprise system has been the greatest wealth creator we’ve ever seen … that I absolutely agree with,” Obama said. But “if on the other hand you tell me that every corporate tax break that’s out there is some how good for ordinary Americans … then that I disagree with.”

    Ultimately, Obama conceded, the “buck stops with me” when it comes to the economy. “I’m going to be accountable” in 2012, he said.

    But the president was quick to emphasize the “mess” he inherited from former President George W. Bush in 2009. He also blamed the economic drag created by state and local government layoffs, as well as “headwinds over the past six months” coming from Europe’s debt crisis and a tsunami-ravaged Japan

    “Everything we’ve done has been related to jobs, starting with the (2009) recovery act,” Obama said. The president stressed, however, that he is “going to need a partner” in Congress — now partially controlled by the Republicans — in order to pass legislation needed to strengthen the economy in the short term.

    While admitting that politically popular entitlement programs such as Medicare are contributing to Washington’s spiraling deficits, Obama refused to offer details about what he is willing to do to help control medical costs. He stressed the need to lower health care costs as a whole, as opposed to going along with what he characterized as GOP attempts to “voucherize” Medicare and leave more responsibility for health expenses in the hands of vulnerable seniors.


    I just sent “Leslie” an e-mail about his snarky interrupting.

    Hey twitterers, whenever we tweet media idiots and think they don’t read their tweets, they ABSOLUTELY read them. I remember tweeting Jake Tapper about some misinformation he spread about PBO raising $86 million being small change and when I thought he never read his tweets, he replied back to me in an obnoxious way, but I quickly shut him down. Today, ChristiMtl informed us that Joan Walsh somewhat apologized about her comments on the Ed Schultz show where she castigated PBO for his supposed comments against union. (which he did not make) I was pissed, so I quickly fired her a tweet, calling her out on her BS and lack of fact checking and told her she was behaving like an emoprog. Charmed86, HZ, Blackwaterdog, GoBrooklyn also tweeted her; calling her out. This afternoon she sent me an apology tweet, saying she was wrong, she acknowledges her mistake, and she thanks me for calling her mistake to her attention. So my underlying message is keep tweeting these media idiots when they lie and spread misinformation about PBO. They may not always reply, but they do read their tweets.

    Thank you so much ChristiMTL for alerting us to Joan Walsh’s lies. 🙂

      Hey there! Yeah, I got into a discussion with Jake Tapper also. Called him out about him repeating the GOP talking point that Dems weren’t compromising during the debt deal. Told him he knows this is false and should not have repeated such a statement to Jay. I also told him that he and his colleagues do a piss poor job of calling out lies. He came back with, “Oh its all my fault” and then later said, “you must not be familiar with my work” – told him yeah, he has a role in this and that yeah I know his work quite well.

      As for Joan Walsh. She makes me sick. I thought her apology was sarcasm. She really pissed me off when she tweeted that Obama supporters who “bullied” others to support him should feel “chastened” – un-freaking-believable this woman.

      • August 16, 2011 at 6:03 pm

        I was thinking is he so angry at because he has never been granted an interview with the President? I don’t recall jake the bozo tapper getting a special invite. Does anyone know before I google?

      Hey that’s neat UT, I didn’t send her anything because she blocked me weeks ago. I’m VERY surprised that she replied,

      If only loud mouth republican Ed Shultz would do the same and correct his false statements about the President.

    • August 16, 2011 at 5:50 pm

      If you catch then right when they tweet something they usually seem to check the replies to it and sometimes tweet back. I know it’s fun to flame them, but if you strike a more even-keeled tone they might not write you off as a hyper-partisan.
