    Lawrence is on a roll today. I just posted on the previous thread how he analyzed Cain’s 999 plan and I think Cain will be the new Donald Trump on Lawrence’s show. 🙂 Cain’s 999 plan is super scary. Don’t get me started on Mittens. 🙂

    • October 12, 2011 at 9:58 pm

      Hiya COS, he really did shred that 999 plan – Cain wants to abolish Social Security and Medicare and not a single GOP rival challenged him on that last night?! Unbelievable.

        I was thinking the same thing Chips. If Perry’s folks had been doing their research, he could have at least had one strong point last night. I don’t think any of these candidates are doing proper research.

          I think the media unwittingly led the GOP to believe that the whole country was mad at the President, and therefore, anyone of their half-baked candidates could just waltz in to the Presidency. Dishonesty has a nice way of backfiring in ways that you least expect. All their stupid slanted polls, their burying of positive news or their spinning every newsstory or special election as “bad news for Obama” is now coming home to roost. Obama’s base NEVER left him; The American people are ready, and this is not 2010 when some obscure rep that nobody knows is on the ballot. Barack Obama has 100% name recognition. He’s the consummate political campaigner, but most importantly, he’s the ONLY politician in the room whom the American people feel has their back and they can trust to do the right thing.

            I think the GOP fooled themselves into thinking that anti-Obama feelings were sweeping the entire country to such an extent that anyone they put up could win. They live in a bubble of right-wing talk radio, right-wing Fox News, and right-wing Wall Street Journal. Then peppered between that is GOP friendly mainstream media.

            So, they think everyone hates the president as much as they do. Their win in the mid-terms only gave them more “proof.” I do not think the midterms was an anti-Obama thing, it was an “Americans are frustrated” thing. And because the Democratic Party is so bad at pushing it’s vision, the Republicans won the game and were able to point the blame at the Democrats. I saw little evidence that the midterms were solely due to widespread anti-Obama sentiment. Still, Republicans live in la-la land, so they believe 2012 will be an “anybody by Barack Obama” election.

          It’s amazing COS, especially considering the hits Perry has taken on the Social Security/Ponzi scheme thing. I wouldn’t expect Perry to be aware of the details of the (chuckle) 999 plan, he’s as thick as a brick, but what kind of team has he?! Truly, they’re abysmal.

    I can tell that Larry O’Donnell does not care for Romney – and I’m A-okay with that…and larry clearly got under Cain’s skin the other day with that interview. Cain almost flew off the handle in anger. Cain HATES when people challenge him and don’t simply fall for his stupid 999 gimmick.

        I find it hard to respect anything about Herman Cain. He’s a bigot. He hates working class people. He wants poor people to buy “used food”. He thinks he can run for President and have the world in his hands without being serious. I don’t want someone like Herman Cain negotiating as the guy who controls the largest arsenal of nuclear weapons, or who manages the largest economy in the world which is inextricably linked to all the other economies. He’s a disaster.

        And if he was serious, he’d let his policies sink or swim, and not attack the President on a personal level. And he wouldn’t perpetuate the myth that black people voted for President Obama simply because he is black.

          Herman Cain is one disgusting scumbag. And he has a quick temper behind that snarled smile. Now if Bill Maher wants to see Samuel Jackson, there’s his right-wing “shaft” right there. I will stick with MY even-tempered President thank you.

            Indeed! The Bill Maher’s should be thrilled with Herman Cain because he feeds their stereotype nicely. Thank God for President Obama.

            That’s so true, hopefruit..I forgot about the faction that wants the President to be all mean like them.

            Cain’s their guy..he’ll yell at the Poor People..yikes that’s me.

          And handling a pizza corporation is a lot easier than handling the largest arsenal of nuclear weapons and the largest economy in the world. Wonder if his handlers have told him that, along with telling him he could be president? Somebody’s putting several false assumptions into his mind, unless it’s totally self-inflicted.

            Well, he did say that he’ll be surrounding himself with a ton of knowledgeable advisors who will basically tell him how to be President. So, I guess he’s got that covered.

              Like Bush did, I guess. Think: Cheney, Rove.

              No thanks, Cain. We’ll keep the guy with his own brain.

                Hahaha. So true. Cheney and Rove as Bush’s brain practically made America hated around the world for our foreign policy platform. Cain would be like the sequel to a horror movie and we all know the majority of sequels are huge disasters.

    Okay, I’m having a chuckle..not with Romney but with Gov Christie standing behind him looking somewhat annoyed and impatient, probably thinking “Common man and finish this boring speech already. I’m fucking hungry.”

  6. October 12, 2011 at 10:18 pm

    It’s hilarious to see this snake-oil salesman running away from his own record. No wonder he is stuck at 20’s in all polls.

    This is OT, but I have to wonder why does these folks keep saying that PBO has not been for the middle class and he is just now being a warrior for the middle class. That is so not true. What did they think PBO was doing when he kept the Bush tax cuts in order to save unemployment benefits for the unemployed and many other things he has tdone on behalf of the middle class with all of the obstruction from the repugs.? Rachel had that Suskind character on to discuss who PBO is talking to but I fastforwarded through that part of the show.

    What a pleasure it is to watch an informed, intelligent interview. Lawrence’s use of clips is excellent. His questions were on target and he knew what he was talking about. How wonderful it would be if all reporters and interviewers were that way. I don’t mind if people have a different viewpoint than I do, I’d just like it to be an intelligent, factual discussion. Thanks for this clip, chipsticks!

    jtb, flushed down the drain by his own group.

    Rick Terven, Sr. is with The United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada (know simply as “UA” to the 340,000 members it claims) and writes POLITICO in an email:

    “As you know both Dennis Kucinich and Marcy Kaptor are also considering this race and have stood by working families time and time again. In doing so they both have earned the strong support of our members in Ohio. ‘Joe the Plumber’ may have played a part in the 2008 election story, but we know that the plumbers of the United Association and all other plumbers who care about working people will continue to support either Democratic nominee, not ‘Joe the Plumber.’

    “‘Joe the Plumber’ does not represent the United Association nor our union members in any way. This is someone who appears to care more about being a celebrity than actually helping working families.”


    great job, john mccain.

    The DNC is compiling Mitt’s flip flops at WhichMitt.com

    I saw this great flashback at People’sView.net:

    “Mr. Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts whose father was president of American Motors in the 1950s and ’60s, insisted that the auto industry can be revived and blamed Congress and Mr. McCain for ignoring Michigan’s problems.

    “The question is, where is Washington?” Mr. Romney said, speaking to a gaggle of reporters across from a General Motors transmission plant near Ypsilanti, where 200 layoffs were announced this week. “Where does it stop? Is there a point at which someone says ‘enough’? Or are we going to allow the entire domestic automotive manufacturing industry to disappear?”

    Lawrence did some excellent work this evening on his show… I hope he keeps hitting Cain every night and makes the connection which Randi exposed regarding his economic head connections with the Koch bros.

    I hope there is some footage lurking around of any secret meetings Cain has had with the dope brothers…

    DNC takes anti-Romney campaign to Michigan

    The DNC, which seems to have stopped worrying they’ll elevate him by engaging him and increasingly assumed he’s the nominee, blasts out an email to Michigan supporters tonight on Romney’s opposition to the auto bailout:

    From: Brad Woodhouse, Democrats.org
    Sent: Wednesday, October 12, 2011 7:15 PM
    Subject: Mitt’s auto-recovery flip flop

    Friend — What does Mitt Romney think about Michigan’s auto recovery?

    It’s hard to tell — he’s given multiple opinions on the subject, including a new one at last night’s Republican presidential debate.

    Mitt’s latest position is that the auto industry shouldn’t have been pulled back from the brink of disaster. But as Michiganders know, the President’s decision to provide loans to automakers was the right one. The recovery package worked, two great American companies are back on their feet, and more than 1.4 million Americans still have jobs.

    Take a look at this video we’ve put together of Mitt’s auto recovery flip flop, and then share it far and wide.

    When he ran for president the first time, Mitt said, “I’m not willing to sit back and say too bad for Michigan.” But once the election was over, he penned an op-ed entitled “Let Detroit go bankrupt.”

    Then last night, he said, “Should they have used the funds to bail out General Motors and Chrysler? No, that was the wrong source for that funding.”

    By his own admission, if Mitt Romney had been president, Michigan’s auto workers and thousands more in the communities that depend on them would be out of work, and GM and Chrysler would still be in the red.
