    How I wish I could be in DC for this historic moment. How I miss Dr. Kings presence in today’s crazy world. I wonder what he would say….???

      I looked up his birth date since I had forgotten exactly – of course, he was 39 when he left us, and our memories will always be of a relatively young man.

      Dr. King would have been 82 today, and I like to think he would have offered good counsel to President Obama, and not been shy about offering advice to other world leaders. I can’t even imagine what the world missed losing him so early, because in such a short time, look what the people of the world gained.

    I had Cnnnn on (I know, why?) and the punditry of the moment, including the Gergen, went off on this surreal discussion that the President was “gloomy” and was “campaigning and stopped governing”. “What he REALLY needs to do is REACH OUT TO REPUBLICANS and……” I know us TODers are constantly gnashing our teeth about the MSM. But really, the crap was SO STRANGE and divorced from reality. WhereTF do they get it? Just dream it up to fill up the time? I mean our President is the most activist president in our life-times, gets CRITICIZED for TRYING TO DO TOO MUCH, has been lock-step opposed by the GOPBAGS on EVERYTHING including most of what they used to support, and these self-important, detached media gnomes just sit there babbling this stuff and ALL AGREEING WITH EACH OTHER. Makes me VOMIT.

When someone responds to your comment with the word “THIS” It simply means they concur and they couldn’t have said/written it better.

    • October 16, 2011 at 8:01 am

      Dave, they have nothing to offer, nothing substantive to say or report so they just go off on imagined scenarios. They know that people are responding to what PBO is doing, they know that his ideas are being heard and approved by a majority of people so all they can do is throw spitballs. At this point, they know they have a Republican audience, so they are pandering to the far right crowd and if, in the process, then can discourage and dispirit a few Obama supporters, well, in their little minds, that means they’ve had a good day. This is why I NEVER watch CNN.

      October 15, 2011 at 9:27 pm

      this is pure gabbage coming from people who despise PBO and glorify the other couple.

      remember how they told us during the primary that even if then-Senator Obama won the primary, he could not win the presidency without having Hillary on the ticket – remember that talk of “The Dream Team”?

      it is strange to see how people NEVER got over President Obama beating the Clinton Machine and probably never will. I am glad that PBO does not socialize with these beltway creeps!.

      I do not believe that crap about hearing this from “an old Chicago friend of PBO), One thing we know about PBO true friends is that they are very loyal to him and go back a long way and would NEVER say something like that. In fact they ALL say that PBO is very loyal to his friends and VP Biden has become one of those.

      Wow. What’s up with Jonathan Alter today? I normally respect his point of view but what he wrote is pure crock. VP Biden will be President Obama’s running mate in 2012 just as he was in 2008. Not Hillary Clinton. Crying out loud if Hillary and Joe were supposed to switch roles, why would http://www.barackobama.com have campaign parapharnelia with VP Biden’s face on them. So called journalist need to stop peddling this meme that PBO can’t win with VP Biden on the ticket. Hillary is not some savior and she hasn’t portrayed herself as such.

    Whoa! I don’t know if anyone watches “Harry’s Law” on NBC – I’ve never watched it myself – but this week’s episode which is being repeated as I write is FANTASTIC! It’s about cyber bullying and the way our media culture is hopeless, useless, and completely worthless. Harry’s – she’s a woman and a lawyer – closing argument lambasted the sickness of Huff Po, the Daily Beast, Limbaugh, Maher, Beck, Olbermann, Coulter and on and on. She called out the culture of mean, where the media deals in snarky headlines made up of BS lies that attempt to tear at the core of a person. The shocking lies perpetrated by the media, the propping up of one side and not allowing the other side at the table, the sensationalism that the “news” and “journalists” love so much for its grotesque shock factor. The fact that when they spew such grotesque lies, they aren’t chastised; they’re given a book deal or a new show. The fact that our media has become what we so loath: A Cyberbully. Brilliant show. Kathy Bates spoke truth and I’m glad she called out various media outlets and various media personalities for the part they play in spinning the wheel of this sick sick sick cycle.

    Chipsticks, Update on the bats— crazy email about ACA. I replied to the guy who sent it, using most of what you gave me, including, of course, the two links. Ended it by saying I really hoped he would share the info with all the others who received the email. I was totally non-confrontational…….just matter-of-fact. Thanks again for your help!!!!!!! I also reported it to Attack Watch. Fairly sure they are aware of it, but wanted to let them know it is “floating around” again.

    On another subject: I spent 3 hrs. today canvassing in south Knoxville for the Dem candidate for state senate. Felt good to be doing something pro-active……..beautiful day to top it off.

State legislatures are a very important block issue in 2012 because if we have more Dems in state legislatures or flip an overwhelming number of state legislatures Blue; then we can begin to rewrite and remove unjust laws put in by republican led destructive congresses.

    Last night I watched Lawrence O’Donnell interview Michael Moore about the OWS movement. Michael Moore loves to keep saying that he wants to see a perpwalks. No one on Wall Street has gone to jail. It’s a travesty. Lawrence just let him spout this nonsense. He played a of clip of Tim Geither saying that there had been some prosecutions. But they both pooh poohed that.

    I sent Lawrence the brilliant post from The Peoples View by Deaneac83 entitled “Why won’t he perpwalk them!!!”. The post explains exactly why there have not been the perpwalks to satisfy Michael Moore . Bottom line, there were NO REGULATIONS during the Bush administration. It was a free for all. It was essentially legalized gambling. Some of the activities were immoral and unethical but not necessary against the law. President Obama said as much in his press conference. Has everyone gotten temporary amnesia about that important fact??

    I really thought that Lawrence and Michel Moore were being incredibly disingenuous with the perpwalk nonsense. Leave it to them to overlook the fact that the very reason we need Dodd-Frank (which the Republicans are blocking) is so that there are laws in place with rules that must be followed. With the implementation of Dogg-Frank, it will be easier to prosecute the lawbreakers. I give up on the lazy media.

    • October 16, 2011 at 8:11 am

      Not too good at sending things, but love being the suggestion box! Why not suggest to Lawrence O that he brings on Deaniac for interview?I Isn’t it a good idea to lobby for this?…even for the future. it is high time that the eloquence of the normal day -to-day people’s voices are heard more e.g Jim Gregory on Al, the chap (can’t recall his name at present) from the OWS Fox interview etc,.

Actually, one of the reasons I like to send blog posts to LOD is to widen his horizons about the brilliant writing on the internet that he may not be aware of.

        By the way, if you ever feel like you want to give Lawrence of piece of your mind, his email address is

    Booman Tribune says “David Gregory Is Not A Tough Interviewer”. Truer words were never spoken. David Gregory is one of the laziest hosts on the Sunday shows. He doesn’t challenge outlandish responses, he enables them. Watching Meet The Press is a total waste of time.

    DAVID GREGORY IS NOT A TOUGH INTERVIEWER

    =========================================

    Cameron Joseph of The Hill tells me that David Gregory is known as a tough interviewer. I wonder, by whom? Do any of you think David Gregory is a tough interviewer? How about anyone you know? I mean, here’s what’s going to happen when Gregory interviews Herman Cain tomorrow morning. Gregory will flash a few ridiculous things that Herman Cain has said up on the screen and ask Cain if he stands by those ridiculous things. Cain either will or will not stand by those ridiculous things. Gregory will ask some kind of incredulous follow-up question, and then move on to the next ridiculous thing. You know what won’t happen? Gregory will not do anything that Cain can’t predict right now, the night before the interview. He also won’t really react to anything Cain says, except in the most predictable (and brief) way. The whole interview is scripted before it starts, so there’s no time to latch on to anything and run it to ground.

    I can’t think of any interviewer who it is easier to prepare for. I’m sure Herman Cain is a little nervous about appearing on Meet the Press, but that’s only because he’s said a lot of ridiculous things that he’ll have to defend. He knows what those ridiculous things are, though, so he can craft his answers in advance. Rather than grilling Cain with his own quotes, Gregory should try to throw him off balance with questions that actually have something to do with the job of being president. But I can guarantee you that that will not happen.

    ‘False Equivalence’ Reaches Onionesque Heights, but in a Real Paper

    ======================================================

    To anticipate the next round of notes from mainstream reporters: No, I am not suggesting that the polarization and obstruction would go away if reporters began describing it more clearly. At root this is a political problem. But it’s a media failure too, and the political problem is all the harder to solve if the media act as if it doesn’t exist.

    John Harwood interviewed Bill Daley and wanted a response about the exchange between President Obama and Ed “Cheshire Cat” Henry. Ed asked a snarky question (at the press conference with President Lee of South Korea) about Iran and managed to include an insulting comment about PBO from none other than Rich Romney. President Obama replied he did not know that Ed Henry represented Romney. He immediately proceeded to answer the question without skipping a beat. Of course, the press got their drawers in a bunch over this bit of truth. And pretended that this was just not acceptable. Chief of Staff Bill Daley responded……

    Daley: Press ‘carry water’ for pols

    Daley responded with a lengthy answer about the economy and the middle class. Harwood pressed him, “Why would the president respond that way to a reporter, though?”

    “I don’t think it was a colleague from your network,” Daley said, “but a colleague from another network.”

    He added, “And โ€” sometimes as you โ€” I know it may surprise people, some people that there are certain people in the media who do seem at times to carry the water for certain โ€” piece of the political spectrum.”

      What disingenuous fools these media types are. Why would the president respond in such a way? Well, duh, the guy was acting like a Romney tool and asking something in a completely inappropriate way in front of a foreign head of state. When you act like a tool you should expect to be called up on it.

    CONFIRMED: HERMAN CAIN IS A BONA FIDE KOCH CANDIDATE

    Well, if you already sensed it, here’s the evidence that Herman Cain is no “outsider” fluke. He is a spearhead of the Koch brothers “buy and install a politician” strategy. The entire slate of Repug candidates is doing the Koch dance for media and gullible Americans’ consumption, such that no matter which GOP candidate takes the nomination, the Kochs are in the drivers seat. The revolving door of “frontrunners” is meant to bamboozle as. All a staged act.

    Cain has been on the Americans for Prosperity speaking circuit since 2005 and has helped do a lot of damage in Wisconsin with the dedicated assault on unions and state workers. He went directly into action on behalf of the AFP undermining President Obama immediately after his election, focusing on the stimulus and later the healthcare bill. His role is to do as much damage giving the wingnuts racial cover. Here’s the article detailing all that Cain has been up to since 2005:

        I would like to hear how brother/prophet/professor/Dr. West would explain the fact that Herman Cain who is fully black, went to a historically black college, and was old enough during the Civil Rights movement, has come to hold his current ideology. According to brother/prophet/professor/Dr./Rev/King/Sir West, President Obama, having been biracial and raised with White mother, does not understand the “black” experience as a fully black person raised by a black parent would.

        So tell us, Dr./prophet/brother/Sir/Lord/Duke/professor/Sir/Rev West, what is going on with Herman Cain?!?!?

        IMHO, she is nothing like her father. She is way more ultra-conservative in all her beliefs. She has been very active in anti-gay actions and marched against gay marriage with her good friend, Bishop Eddie Long of New Birth Missionary Church in Atlanta area. She served as an elder in that church long after it was rocked with all kinds of scandals, financial and sexual, Long accused and settled out of court with big payoffs to 4 young men he had sexually abused. Not till after the settlement did she resign. She is separate from the rest of the family in her fringe right views, separate from her father in his loving acceptance of all. She is the one who insisted that her mother’s funeral be held at Long’s church and not at the family’s home church of Ebeneezer Baptist, so loyal was she to Long.

    Thank you Dan Rather…calling out the media!

    I am in a complete puddle….the tears just keep flowing.

      OMG, THANK YOU, Dan Rather. We have been living under the stench of corporate media and Dan Rather is breathing some fresh air into our midst. I hope this clip goes VIRAL.

      I hear ya Sue. I have been welling up throughout the ceremony this morning. But I expect the floodgates of open when President Obama speaks. I have a box of tissues handy. I am overcome with emotions. I am so thankful that I got to see this day. This is just amazing.

    wow, who’ve I missed? I just heard the last bit of Jesse Jackson .. in time now for Rep Lewis. Jesse’s speech was wonderful~ Happy sunday everyone, been looking forward to this so much.

    Does anyone know if Dan Rather has a Twitter account? I need to tweet him a thank you note. He told the Truth.

    I think what is happening in Iraq is the right wing is waiting to pounce, when American forces leave. Especially, if their is violence.
    So, the President needed another excuse to get them all out of Dodge.
    Viola- the Iraqi Parliament says no immunity for US troops.
    Their is his excuse!

    John Lewis….Awwwwwwwwwsome

    and the OWS folks did not want him to speak….

  32. October 16, 2011 at 10:22 am

    Now I didn’t know that, that MLK was only 5’7″ – how about that.

  33. October 16, 2011 at 10:23 am

    Wow Andrew Young is ripping the greedy economic vultures.

  34. October 16, 2011 at 10:23 am

    Andrew Young just told the crowd…

    WE NEED TO KEEP A PRESIDENT IN OFFICE WHO HAS YOUR INTERESTS AT HEART.

  36. October 16, 2011 at 10:25 am

    “God help us” Indeed.

    Rev Lowery up now, love him

    Loving the crowd too~ anyone know how big the crowd is?

    “We havent got all day! I have to go hear a fellow speak named Barack Obama” I love it! Rev. Lowery!

  38. October 16, 2011 at 10:27 am

    “There are forces in this country who want to turn back the clock” Rev Lowery. Preach on Reverend!!!

  39. October 16, 2011 at 10:27 am

    I like that, MLK as a Father of our country~ beautiful and true.

  40. October 16, 2011 at 10:29 am

    REv. Lowery quoting MLK’s Oslo Nobel Peace Prize speech. Very profound.

    I gotta start watching saturday night live again, they are tearing up the republican debates. Lol!

      did you see last night’s panel…Ron paul in the parking garage, Cain with his 555, 333 and 777 plans, Romney saying a whole lotta nothing, Santorum in a gay nightclub, Bachman and Perry looking doped and glazed..and huntsman not invited…

      Hillarious!!

      Very funny opening again last night. Mitt Romney is the one sitting at the bar at closing who you don’t want to settle for, and you keep making one more trip around the bar looking for someone better.

    How come the sightline behind the podium was not taken care of? We see people walking behind the stage, the wheel of a golf cart, boxes and tacky stuff. Someone should have checked the television camera sight line to be sure there was no clutter showing behind the podium.

    Reverend Lowery is adorable. I just love him. He ended his speech at the inauguration the same way. Of course, the right had a cow. So what else is new?

    …..and for that day when black will not be asked to get back, brown can stick around, yellow will be mellow, the red man can get ahead, man, and white will embrace what is right! Amen!

  44. October 16, 2011 at 10:36 am

    Oh what a poem.. really brought back the times back then. that one got me.

  45. October 16, 2011 at 10:38 am

    Tommy Hilfiger was involved in this? Wow how times change from a decade ago when Hilfiger made those unfortunate racial statements about his clothing line and black consumers. Strange!!

    Good for GM. Only corporation I like now.

  47. October 16, 2011 at 10:41 am

    Is Hilfiger reading from a teleprompter? If so he’s very bad at it.

    Wonderful Sunday morning to everyone! I loved hearing these snippets about the dedication from everyone, but I’ve set the DVR to CSpan to record the whole thing…..It was my “sleep in” day…all of 7:30am, but that’s late for me:) I will watch this in its entirety later this afternoon….I didn’t realize that MLK was so young when he died. Look at all the good things he did in that short time….that is one man that I always wonder “what if” he could still be here today? What would he have done to change our country/world even more? It is now up to all of us to see his vision through…it is our job now, to make sure that his words and deeds are fulfilled in our lifetimes,because as we can see…we have a LONG way to go!
