      As StR pointed out, President Obama takes his case to the American people and ignores the MSM, which angers them and they attack him. They are JEALOUS of the fact that he is the most popular politician right now.

      Random……Yes, crooked tie drove me crazy too. I had no video on the cnn link, but got it quickly on whitehouse.gov. Technology!!

      I’m here by myself until around 10:00 (hubby long hiking trip today) so I’ve been listening to all the MSNBC “flame throwers”–not taking them seriously and I’m not worried. I just wanted to see how negative/”sky is falling”/President Obama is DOOMED I would hear. Of course, A LOT. However, I will say LO and Tweety have also gone after the Teabublicans too! As some of you have said, when he takes his message to the people, they go beserk!

    He is amazing. Out there again today. We must call and write and get other to do it too. I want to help.
    Feels like the Repubs are causing more and more trouble, the more he talks. They will stop at nothing.

    • September 14, 2011 at 8:59 pm

      seem to me the Democrats are the trouble.
      Some Democrats Are Balking at Obama’s Jobs Bill
      New york Time
      — President Obama anticipated Republican resistance to his jobs program, but he is now meeting increasing pushback from his own party.
      “I think the American people are very skeptical of big pieces of legislation,” Senator Bob Casey, a Democrat from Pennsylvania, said in an interview Wednesday, joining a growing chorus of Democrats who prefer an à la carte version of the bill despite White House resistance to that approach. “For that reason alone I think we should break it up.”

      Republicans have focused their attack on the tax increases that would help pay for the spending components of the bill. But Democrats, Some are unhappy about the specific types of companies, particularly the oil industry, that would lose tax benefits. “I have said for months that I am not supporting a repeal of tax cuts for the oil industry unless there are other industries that contribute,” said Senator Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana.
      A small but vocal group dislikes the payroll tax cuts for employees and small businesses. “I have been very unequivocal,” said Representative Peter A. DeFazio, a Democrat from Oregon. “No more tax cuts.”
      His voice rising to a near shriek, he added: “We have the economy that tax cuts give us. And it’s pretty pathetic, isn’t it? The president is in a box.”

      “I have serious questions about the level of spending that President Obama proposed,” said Senator Joe Manchin III, a Democrat from West Virginia, in a statement issued right after Mr. Obama spoke to a joint session of Congress last week. Mr. Manchin said he also questioned “the actual effectiveness some of these policies will have when it comes to creating jobs and restoring confidence in our economy.”
      White House has a tacit agreement with Senate Democrats that Mr. Obama be permitted to take his American Jobs Act around the country to try to sell it to voters. The White House is to brief Democratic senators on the granular aspects of the proposal on Thursday.

      Senator Kay Hagan declined on Wednesday to say her support for the bill that Mr. Obama spent the day promoting in her state was indubitable. “We’ve got to have legislation that is supported by Democrats and Republicans,” she said. “I’m going to have to look at it. “
          Representative Heath Shuler, another North Carolina Democrat, said Congress should tame the deficit before approving new spending for job programs.  “The most important thing is to get our fiscal house in order,” said Mr. Shuler, a leader of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Coalition. “Then we can talk about other aspects of job creation.”

        What this gang needs is to be sequestred a whole week-end with the CBO crew and dozens of economists who can teach then a thing or two about basic economics. God I wonder how in the world the President and the White House team are able to continue working without losing it…

        I have to say though that maybe some of it is just theater that they think is necessary re: their constituents. What they say in public and in private is often very different.

        So tell me is this political posturing, or are these people for real…I thought the CBO gave this a big thumbs up. Man I hate this scrumming.
        Get the bill done.

        But for all these naysayers….one question, what do you propose instead? Landreiu is always shilling for the oil industry. Like the industry is going to disappear when their tax breaks do…bull puckey! They have more money than God, and have made the highest profits in the recorded history.

      • September 14, 2011 at 9:37 pm

        What a bunch of cowards – very little concept of teamwork!! How can they look him in the eye and smile, stand behind him for photo-ops, then thrust a knife into his efforts so publicly, effortlessly, AND so early into the process, just as it’s gaining traction? 😦 😦 I wish they would at least raise their uncertainty in camera, as I don’t doubt he’d listen to them. This is one reason I get so mad when Lefties talk about him ‘caving’ without ever calling out these traitors with equal regularity. Can we tweet each of these Judases and remind them that the strength of a chain is its weakest link? Should we, or is this some sort of ‘strategy’ that I don’t see?

        Kay Hagan is my Senator and I email her and told her that I voted for her the first time, but she will not get my vote again if she does not support this bill. I told her that I am tired of the Democrats not supporting the President. Finally I said Pass the Bill.

        One message from NY 9 that tells the entire story: turnout was low.

        Democrats don’t vote unless they are completely entertained or enthralled by their candidate. They do not vote for history, they do not vote for long term solutions, they don’t vote to stop teapublicans from taking over the country for the next generation, they do not vote.

        This is what scares me. Because no matter what, the PL and the MSM have given Democrats enough ‘doubts’ to keep their lazy asses home on election day.

        The HPV issue with Perry — does anyone actually think that one Republican is going to stay home in 2012 if Perry is the candidate? Does anyone believe that Romney’s Mormonism would keep Republicans away from the polls?

        Republicans vote. They take their long term anger to the polls. Democrats, if everything isn’t perfect enough for them, don’t vote.

        It infuriates me.

After that little bit of fluff I enjoyed the speech from beginning to end. In forums like this he just hits it out of the park because he talks about commonsense reforms and measures that appeal to the average voter.

      And how GORGEOUS was FLOTUS? O.M.G. Love love love love her outfit. She puts people decades younger than her to shame. P90X couldn’t have a better spokesperson. Cannot wait for pictures… sooooo Chips back to the batcave! 😉

    Having listened and watched President Obama taking his case to North Carolina and here with the CHC, I don’t get how the professional left continues to say that Obama = Bush. President Obama is so far removed from President Bush it’s pathetic that euphemism is repeated and accepted by the professional left as fact.

    President Obama keeps on calling for Congress to push the AJA, DREAM Act, and many other things, where can the professional left say President Bush pushed for a similar list of items from Congress?

    It’s the extreme left that is really angering me and getting on my last nerve, how they ignore the fact that working against President Obama and Democrats is the most politically tone deaf course of action out there. President Obama has done more to champion progressive causes than ANY President in a long time, yet the professional left waste their time slapping his hand just as much, if not more than the Teapugs do.

    President Obama just needs to continue what he is doing, and we need to continue what we are doing, to correct the lies being pushed by the emoprogs and the Teapugs.

              Exactly.

              Then Michael Moore is not just a traitor to his country, but a traitor to the cause he purports to believe in.

              Republicans vote, no matter who their candidate is. Democrats only lost their dominance because they got lazy and stopped voting in sufficient numbers to represent the true majority of Americans. We have allowed ourselves to be led by about 25% of the country who bother to show up in sufficient numbers and vote Republican. They still don’t have the repeal of Roe v. Wade, but they vote for the promise. They will never get a marriage amendment, but they vote for that possibility.

              Republicans vote.

              Unless Obama could deliver everything in a few months, then he is unworthy. Damn the political realities.

              I clicked on Countdown last night. I listened to Markos get himself into the slimy corner he has created for himself and the entire PL. Yes, he was thrilled with the Obama ‘fighting spirit’. So now what happens if he can’t get legislative action? Will you still cheer for him, Markos? You could just see him fishing for the slightest example of ‘caving’ so he could hang his hat on it.

              I expected some disillusionment. I expected some disappointment. I never in a million years fathomed this level of destruction coming from our side. The tea party alone, the 2010 elections should have been enough to get Democrats together.

              It’s outrageous.

        so is Michael Moore going to support Rick Perry or whatever clown the Teapugs nominate?

        Michael Moore is a self serving blowhard who isn’t even respected by most Americans, just the extreme left that continue to prove how politically tone deaf they are.

        Michael Moore has been badly treated? How about our President, who has faced the absolute WORST treatment for ANY President or politician? President Obama has had a bunch of racial slurs hurled his way, from both extreme right and left, he was forced to show his long form birth certificate to shame Donald Chump, we have half of the Teapugs who believe he’s in line with Adolph Hitler and the antichrist, and every time he invites a rapper to the White House, the Teapugs act like he’s inviting a gangsta rapper to drink 40’s at the hizzouse, even if it happens to be Common. And despite all that, Michael Moore has the audacity to overlook all of that and care only about his fat ass. He didn’t do wonders for John Kerry with Fahrenheit 9/11 in 2004, and isn’t even a relevant player in politics. He needs to buzz off?

      There is nothing “Left” about these people. I think they are a well organized right wring attack machine. They use the exact same tatics. The Dems never win with them. I noticed this about all them even Rachel and Ed who forgot all about Wisconsin in the end.

      • 61 nintendowii10
        September 14, 2011 at 9:08 pm

        It was Ed who was screaming that President Obama wasn’t in Wisconsin, and Ed totally ignores the fact that President Obama going to Wisconsin would be the most politically tone deaf move he could make. The story would have been more about how President Obama is injecting the federal government into what should be a state level issue, and the union workers of Wisconsin would have been forgotten and rendered moot.

        Ed also had the audacity to blame the re election of Darling on President Obama. Forget the fact that the Republicans out-organized the Democrats in that district, it was all Obama’s fault in the end, according to Ed. Ed is just a self serving blowhard who claims to understand the middle class, but is actually working against the middle class everytime he rants and raves against President Obama.

        • September 14, 2011 at 9:15 pm

          Ed is so tough, how come his presence didn’t make a difference? Coward. Blowhard. Someone on twitter pointed out they believe he’s backing Perry. I could believe that.

          September 14, 2011 at 9:25 pm

          Ed keeps saying that and the lady that sits in for Randi Rhoads just recently said the same thing, “Obama did not go to WI and protest with the union” it makes no sense for a sitting President to do that. President Kennedy did not walk with MLK either.

Who was that guy who singlehandedly held up ACA because the language on abortion wasn’t draconian enough?

          I understand your despondency Keith, but please, give us all a break from this endless negativity – there are, honestly, countless positive stories out there that are being unreported by the MSM, let’s try to highlight them here, okay? That doesn’t mean we should ignore the bad stuff, it’s way better if we acknowledge it, but this blog tries to raise people’s spirits by reporting that unreported stuff – please remember that.

          Just to repeat, you mentioned earlier a report you heard on TV about a poor poll for the President in California, without actually citing what poll it was – the last California poll (eight days ago) was hugely encouraging:

          “….. a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll shows that Obama’s strength in California has endured despite deep dissatisfaction among voters with the economy. In hypothetical matchups, Obama led Romney by 19 points, Perry by 24 points and Bachmann by 26 points.”

    They’e both so classy. They are everything some Republicans hope their first couple would be but are not. They pretend to have the market on family values cornered, PBO and his wife exhibit that everyday effortlessly with their love for their family.

    The heros propped up on the other side are philanderers and cheats.

    The President and his wife live by their values, doing service work, teaching their children to contribute by doing. They have a deep affection for each other and are not ashamed or afraid to show it.

    You look at them, you see a breath of fresh air. No forced affection, emotions. They are just so real. And secretly I bet some of the people that hate on them so much want to be just like them, but they don’t possess those qualities.

      These people are not about governing. They are about creating one trumped up controversy after another. What emboldens them is a media that coddles them. And to boot, there are some on our side that act as if they are working alongside the Republicans.

      What is fascinating though, lesser men than President Barack Hussien Obama would have fallen a long time ago. This must royally piss off the folks who work night and day at thwarting every single progress he makes. But at the end of the day what it shows is that no matter what they throw at him, President Obama has risen like the Phoenix.

      What is done in the dark is surely to come to light. They won’t win!!!

      I am so inspired by him, I will work my tail off to get him reelected.

    As if I wasn’t angered enough about Michael Moore, he once again opens his mouth and inserts BOTH FEET!

    Michael Moore quotes Bill Maher on President Obama: “I voted for the black guy and what we got was the white guy.”

    It sickens and DISGUSTS me how much these extreme white liberals believe that when they cast their votes for President Obama, they were voting for Samuel Jackson’s character from Pulp Fiction. They truly NEVER paid attention to what Barack Obama campaigned on.

    He campaigned on elevating the tone in Washington, he campaigned on being bipartisan and reaching across the aisle, if Michael Moore and Bill Mahar disagree with that, fine. But there was NO reason for either of them to open their mouths and espouse their racism and bigotry, they could have simply said “We disagree with how President Obama is reaching across the aisle to Republicans.” There was NO REASON to whine about voting for the black guy and getting the white guy, seeing as Barack Hussein Obama is half white and half black.

    Michael Moore and Bill Mahar owe not just the Obamas, but mixed Americans an apology. But I won’t be holding my breath, FUCK THEM BOTH!!!! 😡 😡

    Coburn is blocking the FEMA bill, the highway bill and the FAA bill!
    Unless something is worked out, FAA will close again on Friday!
    And FEMA will not have any funds for the disasters!
    And the tax for the highway bill will expire!

    These guys are just plain nuts, coburn did not do this to bush!

    Interesting story on Marco Rubio, as he gets increasing scrutiny as VP speculation rises. I think he’s likely the top VP prospect. His views are a horror show:

      why else do you think the teapugs lowered themselves enough to vote for one of THOSE people? whisper it: ” a minority”?
      ps- sorry I can’t italicize.

        They probably thought his name was Italian, vaguely familiar like Marco Polo, an Italian. Remember these aren’t the brightest porch lights on the block.

        Also, Charlie Crist (who warmly welcomed PBO to Florida and therefore had to be punished) was running against him, and Charlie also did something good for teachers and education once.

        Apparently if you are an R and can fool yourself into thinking someone isn’t a minority (same name as a game you played when you were a kid) – plus he didn’t do anything positive for edjucayshun – plus he now thinks Social Security has made us morally bankrupt – well, there ya go.

    A MAN OF GREAT WISDOM ONCE SAID:

    We know the battle ahead will be long. But always remember that, no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.

    We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics. And they will only grow louder and more dissonant in the weeks and months to come.

    We’ve been asked to pause for a reality check. We’ve been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

    PBO is on a daunting schedule. I hope they get some rest and that the smiling crowds rejuvenate him.
