      The next GOP debate (clown show) is this coming Tuesday Oct 11. It will take place at Dartmouth, NH and televised nationally on the local Bloomberg Channel starting at 8PM ET. The debate will be hosted by PBS’s Charlie Rose, WH Correspondent Julianna Goldman and the Washington Post political correspondent, Karen Tumulty.

        Hope they question Rick Perry about the absolutely disgusting foul name for his ranch in Texas. I want to see him try and squirm away from such filth. I also hope they hammer Romney for his foreign policy team. They’re all GWB’s foreign policy team. So his foreign policy platform is basically Bush-redux or Bush-esque and that is crazy.

    This is truly a powerful video…Only under the Obama Administration can this happen!!!..This is The White House Economic Team at work.
    I know the media won’t give PBO any credit but I believe that when PBO went on his overseas trip to drum up business, we are now seeing the results. Unbelievable….JOBS COMING BACK TO THE US FROM CHINA!!!!..

    Overseas Jobs Come Home
    Up to 3 million jobs once outsourced to China forecast to return to the U.S.

        Thank you Kasai. Another great one. Great progress. POB said that he wanted this to happen, and he said that it could. Now, really someone had to find this out. I am just elated that the jobs are coming back which means that many people will be put back to work. Factories will re-open in many places throughout the nation.

        It makes good sense now. Why pay for all of that shipping from China, when we can make it here and not have such great cost. I still believe that this was in the discussion and fore-sight of our great leader. I do believe that he discussed it with his economic team, and that is why he always so stressing how important for this to happen, and happen now. “Why can’t we see and have things made in America.” We Can. We have better skills, better workers, and we are a better nation than this. Let us give a big hand to our nation. Three million once outsourced jobs to China are returning!!!! Great news.

      According to ABC news, the reason for the return of the jobs had nothing to do with anyone except that the cost of labor was simply rising in china so employers are making a purely pragmatic decision (based on lowered costs of production) to bring the jobs back home.

    ABC news listed Value Voters top picks for Vice-President

    Michele Bachmann; Herman Cain; Marco Rubio; and Rick Santorum.

    Saturday’s results were very different from last year’s Values Voter straw poll. The support for both Romney and Newt Gingrich declined markedly. Last year, Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., won the straw poll and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee took second place. Paul barely registered in 2010.

        Probably 95% of them are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Phony, fake, racists, and what ever else you want to call them.

      It scares me some to think of Ron Paul being the pick though. My brother is a big Ron Paul supporter and it seems he would be just fine with no Social Security, Healthcare, or Medicare programs. He always is talking about getting back to the Constitution. I even asked him about fire stations, roads, police etc and he said he thinks all of that should be run by the individual states. He is a professional architect so is educated. I can’t figure his thinking out but worry about others being on a similar thought track. One brother is a Ron Paul supporter and the other is a hardline Conservative Rush Limbaugh listener. It is a wonder I turned out to be an Obama supporter through and through!

          You stay very strong and focus ObamaGrandmama. Just shine your beautiful light before your beautiful family, and pray for the best. That is all you can do in this case. Look at your President. Carry on, but still love them with all of your heart.

          Love can cover a lot in this world. I have seen it in my life for over 66 years. Stay strong and keep your light bright. Love you ObamaGrandmama.HZ

    What a great sign. It sums it up just perfect. I sent an email to Maxine Waters and the CBC about this 96 year old Dorothy Cooper who was denied her voting ID. I told them that I want to see them on tv talking about what the Republicans are trying to do, just like they were on tv criticizing the President. I told them that we know that the Republicans are trying to steal this 2012 election, they are pros at stealing elections (2000). But they are trying to suppress the groups of people who usually vote for Democrats. I want to see what Waters have to say.

      Well done Anniebella! I too would like to see the CBC and Maxine Waters on t.v. talking about these Republican schemes to deny people the right to vote; and especially the elderly in the non white communities. But then again I doubt that the media would invite them to discuss any other important issue facing their communities. The media is only interested in them when they are out bashing President Obama.

      I don’t trust Hunstman one bit. In fact I won’t be surprised if we suddenly see him mysteriously start rising in the polls closer to the time of the NH and Iowa Caucuses.. He keeps polling at 0-2% yet hasn’t dropped out yet. He polls high enough just keep him participating in the debates, yet low enough so that he doesn’t get scrutinized by the media. And Cain, Paul, Perry and Sanctorum aren’t going anywhere. They are all going to plummet in the next several weeks. Romney will get the nomination and he might select Huntsman as his VP.

        Rachel had a segment about Romney’s picks to head up his advisers on foreign affairs this week. Out of 22 picks 16 were former Bush advisers. 6 were part of the group that worked on the Neocon philosophy, One was the guy that told GW to include the WMD in his speech. One later went to work for the Blackwater company and one other had a similar involvement that I have momentarily forgotten but think it had something to do with the tortures. We need to smear Romney with Bush’s reputation for what happened under him if he comes out the GOP candidate.

        If he does start to rise (which I doubt “doughboy” can) then it will be because he will have revamped his campaign people to somehow redesign his profile and positions – not to mention getting him a voice coach.

    “I’d vote for Republicans, But I’m allergic to NUTS” bit.ly/ntED3l What those folk call ‘values’ I call profoundly pathological.

    Fighting voter suppression as if it were the most formidable enemy our Republic has ever confronted should be everyone’s focus from now until Election Day 2012.
