    It looks like he started already! Did it start at 5PM when it was supposed to start at 5:30?

    Okay so the event we just saw must have been the 5:10PM (EST) homeowner’s event at the private residence.

    the key was this was a bunch of Hispanic homeowners and the crowd was very diverse. I can’t see Mitt Romney getting a bunch of hugs from that crowd. LOL

    Pres Obama just got done with his speech in a Vegas neighborhood. He was a little bit late coming out of the home of one of those families whose mortgage is upside down. Wonderful speech except I had to mute the TV after he was done. The local media is not kind to the president at all. They report more about what Romney and Cain have been saying about Obama. Makes me angry. I believe the President is now going to the Bellagio for a benefit lunch and then flies out to Calif at 4pm pst.

    Have a safe flight Mr. President!

      Lonnie, It is ashame how some people feel like the President can solve every dam problem wrong with this country. if he could, I’m sure he would, but he can’t. And what was Romney and Cain plan to help the home owners. Did the local media say anything about that? Lonnie you need to get in touch with that media and tell them that you don’t want to hear about what Romney or Cain have to say about President Obama. Tell them you want to hear Romney, Perry, and Cain’s plan to help the people of LV. See what the media have to say then.

      • October 24, 2011 at 8:07 pm

        I sent an email to FOX5 Las Vegas and also posted on their facebook page and website. CBS 8News also got a scathing letter from me about their one reporter who said at the airport awaiting Pres Obama’s flight to land, “Pres Obama is using this trip to sidestep away from the Jobs Bill.” He’s not sidestepping anything lady! I was fuming when I heard her say that. I stopped watching TV “news” because they are bought and paid for by the top 1%. I watched today only because Pres Obama wasn’t accessible to me (darn it) in person. πŸ˜‰

        I am so thankful to this website and all that Chip does. This is my ritual every morning and evening. Makes my day complete.

        The contrast is STARK. The RepUgly candidates are talking about forcing home owners to lose their homes by allowing them to default. In contrast, The RepUgly House is preventing hardworking families and those wanting to go back to work from doing so.

        In contrast. President Obama is helping to KEEP people in their homes. The American people are going to be with President Obama. The tide is beginning to turn. America is beginning to show the RepUgly loyalty and solidarity with the President.

      I got my 2012 bumper sticker and 2012 car magnet! I have other Obama and Biden stickers on my car, along with Bill White for Governor stickers and I have to shuffle stuff around to make sure my 2012 gear is on full display! My family jokingly kids me for my Obamamania. I’m apparently President Obama’s # 1 fan! I have the HOPE poster in my bedroom, along with other Democratic posters and snarky(but truthful) liberal sayings. Anyone who walks into my bedroom immediately knows where I stand politically. I’m liberal and I’m all for PBO. So they know not to say mindless crap about him. Oh and I have the usual humorous posters required for every college student.

      1. A poster of Johnny Depp (a must for every college female or any female with a pulse.) Hubba Hubba Hubba. Captain Jack does wonders for me. πŸ˜‰
      2. A picture of Bob Marley rocking out on his guitar and smoking the ganga. Why? Because he’s Bob Marley, he’s freaking cool, and his music is EPIC.
      3. Posters about Family Guy characters and various sex positions. Why? …….Because STEWIE rocks! And because sex is VERY important and at least this way one does not need to break out the kama sutra. One needs to just look at the wall for inspiration. πŸ˜‰
      4. Posters about my AWESOME Gorillaz, The Rolling Stones, and Guns ‘N’ Roses. Why? Because it’s just good music.
      5. The requisite posters featuring quotes by great minds like Einstein, Camus, Wilde, JFK, Gandhi, Kipling, Alcott, Cervantes, Roosevelt, MLK Jr. etc. Why? Because I’m just that deep. πŸ™‚
      6. The Murphy’s Law poster. Why? Because anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

      • October 24, 2011 at 6:45 pm

        UT, you are sooooooooooooo wrong, I can’t help but think you’re right…….. except for the Stewie thing. I think Stewie would agree that a shirtless picture of George Clooney or Johnny Depp would be much, much, much more stimulating πŸ˜‰

        • October 24, 2011 at 6:47 pm

Stewie would love a George Clooney look alike with Rupert the Teddy Bear’s head on it; so he could have one of his famous Sexy Parties with shirtless men in chaps or leather pants. πŸ˜†

      October 24, 2011 at 6:11 pm

      I love everything about the speech except the very last question: “Can Barack Obama be more like the President you dreamed of if he’s elected to a second term?” – the reality is that this President has exceeded my dreams, especially when I look at the reality of obstruction and lack of support, plus the uninformed population that he’s had to deal with. The question shouldn’t be whether America is disappointed in Barack Obama. It should be “is Barack Obama disappointed in America”? In the face of crisis – real, life-threatening, global crisis – the people of his country chose to watch as Republicans not only sat by, but actively worked to destroy any chance of meaningful recovery. The people of his country chose to elect those same Republicans to control the purse strings of government and tie the President’s hands so that he couldn’t pass any legislation that would continue the path of recovery – and then those same people repeatedly asked why recovery had stalled, as though it’s just miraculously supposed to happen. The people of his country chose not to give him credit for giving their children a chance at a decent education, and a shot to compete in the future. Those people chose to allow Republicans to blatantly pass laws that deprive them of their right to free and fair elections, to put up insane candidates and then have them polling anywhere in the vicinity of this President, chose to allow Republicans to warmonger and fear monger instead of giving credit to President Obama for ending the mismanaged wars that they started. Those people chose to ignore the good work that this President has done to honor the troops who have fought and died for the past decade, while their families lived on food stamps at home – and some of those people couldn’t even pick up the phone to call Congress to pass legislation to ensure that those veterans would have jobs and benefits when they come home. Those same people chose to form a new movement that seems dedicated to destroy any chance of President Obama succeeding in 2012 – but they will be sorely disappointed.

      I don’t think people should waste time pondering whether they are disappointed in President Obama – because that kind of question can only come from someone who doesn’t actually know what this President has achieved and how hard it was to achieve it.People should question how they are being seen around the world, as a country and a people, who can’t appreciate what they have while they’ve got it. The rest of the world is clamouring for a leader with the heart, and work ethic, and integrity as President Obama – while America ponders whether a Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich presidency will make them feel better. That’s pretty embarassing.

        YES! Tell it!

        When you look at the record of accomplishment from Stanley Ann’s son, and how he is literally empowering the entire world like no leader has ever done before, and as you point out, in the face of historic obstruction, I literally cannot see how one human being can do anything better than President Obama is doing. His success is beyond belief.

        Mr. Lamar’s presentation was quite an effective support of President Obama. But I agree with you Theo67—except for that last line which tended to concede some complaint points to the so-called liberal opposition. And all the reasons why I disagree with that portion of the Jake Lamar’s comment have been stated eloquently and cogently by you.

      Donna – thanks. This is perfect. So many of my friends are of the “disappointed” variety and while they worked in OFA and donated last year. They have donated this year and will vote for PBO but they are unenthusiastic in their support. They are disappointed. Some can articulate why, – it’s all the talking points that we’ve talked about here that make us all go “huh?” Some are just of a general feeling and cannot say why exactly. I’ve turned them onto WIW’s site because I think Linda’s site is so uplifting and I think this is too. I agree with Theo about the very last line, but overall? I think it could help my friends.

Yes, indeed, President Obama is a “REALIST.” He has also, by the way, enacted more progressive legislations than any other modern President since LBJ. And LBJ was able to do that because of the massive Civil Rights movement that gave him cover rather constantly demonizing him. How can I get hold of his entire talk? I would like to share this with people in my community.

She said that hospitals and charities “usually have a little left over” and will be able to pick up the cost of healthcare for those without health insurance. Yeah, no problemo. They’ll have a little left over for 50 million uninsured. She wrapped it up with, “When Obamacare is gone, this is what we’ll have to do.” Ay yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi.

    I don’t like Paul Krugman at all, his endless criticisms of President Obama are tiring but are always good news for ”progressives”, anything to bash the President.

    But this is very interresting:

    October 24, 2011, 4:47 pm
    Hope For HARP

    Most quick reactions to the new Obama housing proposal have been fairly dismissive, arguing that it would provide only a small boost. I don’t have an opinion yet, because I haven’t had time to work through the details β€” and on this kind of thing, the devil is very much in the details. (Does that make it another 666 plan?)

    But lest it be lost in the shuffle, let me send interested readers, and especially macroeconomists, to Joe Gagnon, someone I take very seriously. And Gagnon thinks that this could be huge, especially if combined with a Fed program of buying mortgage-backed securities. He’s talking maybe 4 million jobs!

    This is not an endorsement of his analysis, just saying that this really needs looking at.

    • October 24, 2011 at 6:34 pm

      If this analysis is correct, and if it means 4m jobs, it also means that all those jobs will be due solely to the efforts of the Administration, bypassing the GOP. That’s a BFD. That could mean the difference between a narrow win and a blowout, along with retaking the House and maintaining the Senate majority.

    • October 24, 2011 at 7:28 pm

      How could the mortgage plan create 4 million jobs? And I saw on twitter that Krugman liked it and all he actually said was he hasn’t looked at it yet? oy!

    • October 24, 2011 at 8:16 pm

      Twice the impact of the American Jobs Act? *That* would be impressive.*

    Red meat-

    LAS VEGAS — President Obama on Monday assailed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for referring to the piece of the president’s jobs plan that would fund salaries for teachers and first responders as a “bailout.”

    “Mitch McConnell said that … saving the jobs of teachers, cops and firefighters is, I quote, ‘a bailout.’ A bailout,” Obama said at a midday fundraiser at the Bellagio.

    “These aren’t bad actors who somehow screwed up the economy, they didn’t act irresponsibly,” he told the fundraiser crowd, which donated between $1,000 and $35,800 per head for entry. “These are the men and women who teach our children, patrol our streets, run into burning buildings and save people. They deserve our support.”

    “This is the fight that we’re going to have right now, and I suspect this is the fight we’re going to have over the next year,” Obama said. “The Republicans in Congress and the Republican candidates for president have made that very clear.”

    Republicans, he said, have “two basic economic principles”: cutting taxes for “the very wealthiest, the biggest corporations” and eliminating “just about every regulation that’s out there; they want to get rid of it.”

    • 89 dotster3
      October 24, 2011 at 6:48 pm

      October 24, 2011 at 7:28 pm

      I guess it’s just fine to bailout wall street and the big banks. But that bastard McConnell think helping the teachers, firefighters, and policemen is WRONG. But the millionaires, the billionaires, the very ones who cause this financial crisis helping them is just fine.

        October 24, 2011 at 9:49 pm

He’s incredibly warm and that smile could light a whole city. It’s something that was very apparent the first time I saw him way back in 2007. He cares deeply about people.

Ships report it is twice the size of Texas, containing cars and boats and tvs and refridgerators and parts of buildings, everything known to man.

    DNC Chair DWS was in my neck of the woods this weekend, firing up the troops in advance of the Nov 8th local elections and motivating volunteers for Obama/Biden 2012. Her rally in Chester was significant as most folks tend to bypass Chester as it is a rather economically depressed city. The city has majority Dem voter registration, however, they’ve only elected Dem mayors four times in the last 100 years. The current mayor is a repub, running for reelection. PBO selected Chester for the “Strong Cities, Strong Communities” pilot programm, earlier this year, so you know the current republican mayor is posting signs all over the city showing him next to PBO… Here is vid of DWS’s remarks; girlfriend is good! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPMV9iczGaE&feature=channel_video_title

      After arriving to LAX, Obama took a helicopter to Westwood, for a private dinner at the home of Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith, which will be hosted by actress Eva Longoria.

      The gathering of 100 invited guests will include Latino community leaders, as well as other stars, as Obama tries to shore up a Latino voting base.
      The other fundraising event was to take place at the home of movie producer James Lassiter in Hancock Park. Kawanna and Jay Brown, Rebecca and Troy Carter, Mai and James Lassiter, and Jada Pinkett and Will Smith are the co-hosts for this event. Tickets are $35,800 per person.

      β€œTuesday morning, he goes over to NBC in Burbank to do the Jay Leno show, and then he flies out of LAX at 11:45,” Rosendahl said on KNX. β€œThat will be the trick, and that exact route has not been shared with me.”

      Well, we Angelinos have an existential relationship with traffic. To get out of my corner of the world I take an overpass over the 405 around LAX, and every weekend that me and the girlfriend unit drive over it I, without fail, remark that “When I was growing up in the 80s there’d never be any traffic on the weekend, and now look at it *grumble*snarl*glorp*”.

        I too sometimes find myself asking “where are all of these people going?” as I try to navigate around them! πŸ˜†

    Does anyone know Harold Ford Twitter account? I just found out that he is a BAnk of America Executive who goes on Morning Joes and attacks PBO for being too tough on wallstreet. I need to blast the hell out of him.

      It’s at @HFord2. He’s a jackASS, a shyster, a fraud. He’s sucks the teat of wallstreet and then goes on Morning Joe to pretend that he’s one of the middleclass people and PBO’s wall street regulations are “hurting” small businesses and middleclass people. He’s the worst kind of Blue Dog Dem the Democratic party doesn’t need. He SUCKED while he was in congress and he SUCKS even more now. Always bashing PBO on Morning Joe and Meet the Press. Effing DOUCHEBAG.

      Wesley, thank you for that. I have 2 small children: a 7 1/2 year old son (that 1/2 is VERY important πŸ˜‰ ) and a 5 year old daughter. I worry every day about the adults that they will become. I do my best but I know that there is quite a bit that is out of my hands. I remind my children every day about the amazing President we have and use him as an example whenever I can. And I remind them how much they are loved and valued. I hope I do a good job :).

    Ahh, *Wesleya*, you are so kind, that’s like sweet music to Single Parents ears. I too was a Single parent, separated from my Husband, but I am proud to tell you, that my oldest Son Is a Professor at the University of New Hampshire. Look, to God be the Glory, I couldn’t have done It by myself. I give God all the Glory πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
