    The President keep reiterating that he needs folks to contact their representatives to put pressure on them – this makes me think they are not getting the support they need/expected. It’s time like this I think President Obama is too good for what America has become. A bunch of helpless and hopeless zombies more concerned about not missing the season premieres of their television shows over the next couple of weeks than making a phone call or firing off an email in support of the President’s American Jobs Act bill. He has 10M twitter followers, 20M facebook friends, and 31M people watched the address last Thursday – being a spectator isn’t enough.

      I’ve called & tweeted each day- more than once and will continue to do.

      I think he’ll continue to ask us to call, etc because he knows that its going to be a long battle and he doesn’t want any of us taking our eyes off the prize here.. he plans to keep the pressure up to boiling on the repubs- thats our job. Do not give up and do not let go.. because I am sure the Media will work overtime to depress folks into giving up on this as unattainable. POTUS is actually shoring us up by reminding us of our POWER.

      I emailed both republicans today! Tuesday I will call!
      If republicans know it’s coming and are not taking calls like the speakers office, well…

        I just mail a letter to the Republican Senator and Congressman. I am going to email them also.

          Did anyone see Patty Davis on Lawrence O’Donnell? Someone need to remind her that alot of people didn’t think Reagen was a good President, and I was one of them.

            She made my blood boil. She had the nerve to say that she thought Pres. Obama would be the nation”s father figure but she found he isn’t. absolute nonsense. She thinks we need an avuncular president and that her dad was such a figure? She has no clue the utter destruction her father wrought on this country?

              What the f$#k! We don’t need daddies and uncles and aunties……we need leaders. And as important, we need Americans to grow up, and be responsible for their civic responsibilities and obligations.

                Patty Davis really does have some nerve, if my memory serve me right she didn’t even get along with her father when he was president. I turn the tv off after the B.S. she said about President Obama. Plus I could no longer stand to listen to her talk about Reagen like he was Jesus Christ.

    Oh my goodness I just threw up in my mouth. CNN/Teaparty introduction of the candidates is gross. They just referred to the teaparty as a grassroots organization that want to kick Barack Obama out……. oooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

      I’m not even wasting my time watching that DIATRIBE. You are a brave women ut. Grass roots? Since when is a Corporate enhanced and driven round up of malcontents grass roots? Sounds like they are desperately trying to raise the dismal 20% approval ratings of the Tea Party. I don’t even want updates. 🙄

    I believe supporters will only respond in MASSE when the bill comes up for a vote. Maybe that is what folks are waiting for. I mean the bill looks so damn good for all Americans. What more do people want? I guess there is no crash of servers like during the debt debates. With the debt fiasco voters were trying to prevent a catastrophe and calling for a jobs bill if you are one of the 90% of Americans already employed is probably a stretch. Maybe the unemployed electorate should be BLOWING up the Representative phone lines. It will be interesting to see how this progresses. Not even the OFA site has there usual “call to action” going on right now. Dems need to make it more CLEAR that they want us to call, tweet, email or Reps to get them moving in the right direction. Obama/Biden 2012!!

    Note to Bobby Jindall after his appearance on John King’s circus performance teafolk pre-show on CNN:

    Talking fast like you’re from New Jersey does not go with using a slow southern drawl like you’re from Louisiana.

    Oh, and try to find the camera that’s on.

    Thank you and good riddance.

      Perry is walking back his Ponzi Scheme meme into those who have Social Security will still have it. Bachmann repeated the lies that PBO took 500 Billion out of Medicare to put it in his Obamacare program and other lies. Mitt and Rick are conversing about Soc Sec right now.

    Yes, I’m watching the debate, as long as I can stand it. Second R debate I’ve watched in a row. It’s just so hysterical, I’m drawn to it – like flies to a bad apple.

    Love the way Romney is the only one who turns to look at Perry when Perry babbles.

    Note to Romney: It’s fed-er-al gov-ern-ment (more or less) – not fed-rull guv-mint.

    Thank you and good riddance.

      I can’t see the humor now, because there’s been no election. (I have this jinxing hangup). However…a good idea might be to record it, and when they are laughed out of the country, pour a glass of champagne, and THEN have some laughs. I’ll bet there will be no difference between what they said and My Stephen’s parodies of them.

    The msm is pandering to the republicans because of all these debates!
    I mean, more than usual!

    All the older people in the audience are nodding when Ron Paul says all the younger people in the country should get out of Social Security.

    They must be Republicans. Ya think?

    Newt just said he wasn’t worried about the GOP scaring old people when PBO recently said twice he couldn’t guarantee he’d be able to deliver the checks to the Social Security recipients. Didn’t say anything about it was because his own party was holding it hostage in the debt ceiling debate.

    My mistake, I put on the debate at halftime, this ain’t a debate, it’s a Pep Rally!

    Mitt Romney is talking to the middle class now so we cannot use the refrain that they didn’t even mention middle class as we did in the last election. Not saying his plans really aid the middle class but he is just speaking to them.

    Perry is backing down on his executive order for the vaccine for girls in his state. Why is this station going back over the same questions that were asked last time around? Been there done that.

    Interesting as Ron Paul says the churches should take care of the young man that does not have healthcare insurance, not the tax payers.

    Michele Bachmann is yelling that the only way to get rid of Obamacare is to do it in 2012 or else it is ongoing. That is exactly WHY i want Obama to win this next election. The audience was screaming with her over how important it is to repeal Obamacare. Are they crazy or what? Wish misrepresenting and lying wasn’t allowed in these debates.

    I LOVED now he was so quick to joke about the Atlanta Braves, “Who were they playing? What was the name of that other team? Oh, was that the Chicago Bears!” and with the kind of day he had yesterday, tying up the triangle of death and violence, turning it into a triangle of love and healing,…. He has the presence of mind ot make a joke like that, in the kindest most generous way! What a guy!
