Ooooops, watch Huntsman sink from 1% to zero in the GOP polls:

    So Hunstman is “concerned” about the truth in one aspect, but immediately follows it up in the same 140-word twit with another. Any objective analysis of numbers show President Obama has IMPROVED the economy tremendously, not “bungled” it as this liar heir to daddy’s throne said.

      I would have had more respect for this disloyal backstabber if he had just left it at “focus on fixing the economy”. He knows that the bungling of the economy had nothing to do with President Obama, and everything to do with the GOP ineptitude. And his party is the one that is refusing to fix the economy, but obstructing every idea and introducing offensive bills that insult the intelligence of every thinking person. He should know better. His pandering is disgusting.

    UPDATED: Among those attending the morning gathering at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel were studio head Harvey Weinstein, UTA’s Rob Prinz, CAA managing partner and music head Rob Light, and ICM’s Chris Silbermann.

    Before he left Los Angeles for San Francisco on Tuesday, President Barack Obama stopped for an undisclosed meeting with some of the entertainment industry’s high-level executives, as well as talent representatives with access to the industry’s top stars and musical acts, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

      …Jon Huntsman can go F himself…

      Couldn’t have put it better UT and I’m not even going to bother atoning for that sentiment at confession next go around…

      Jon Huntsman is such a tiresome, bland, empty deluded tool…

      A tired, superficial, petty, smarmy, phony with absolutely no original thought or ideas to speak of and absolutely nothing to offer the American people…

      Utah is not even remotely representative of the diverse and complex nature of our America…

      And the suggestion of ‘success’ in Utah as some standard for America is as laughable as Fox news as a model for good journalistic practices and integrity in media…

      There is a reason Utah in spite of hard pushed appearances, has the highest number of suicidal people in the entire country…

      There is a lot of oppression religious and otherwise, a choking control and a thriving class divide that mandates conformity or the threat of being swiftly marginalized and even ostracized…

      Jon Huntsman’s play acting is so bad and frankly embarrassing…

      He throws out petty, silly lies while desperately trying to cast himself as somehow honorable and above the fray…yet he is anything but…

      And as time passes he gets even more envious and resentful and desperate for the attention, respect and following President Obama deservedly enjoys…

      Even more amusing…

      He tries so hard to mimic President Obama’s noble bearing and heart and falls so short in every way…

      He always comes across as a very, very cheap knock-off…

      An inauthentic and horribly put together imitation that quickly falls apart…

      I so hope he gets the attention he seeks, because just like the rest of them so touted and built up, he will quickly wither under the slightest glare…

    One more thing….John Huntsman bungled a campaign. He cant even rise above rock bottom in his own campaign, how they heck will he fix the economy that the rePukelicans bungled long before Obama got there? He needs to pack up his posters, tired suits and lame rhetoric and head back to that rock he lived under until Obama gave his tired behind a job.

    The fact that its taking so long to get the economy in shape show just how bad it really was. We are just know seeing how inept Bush and congress has been with the affairs of this country’s business.

    Whether he is in the WH or not, Obama’s future is platinum while Huntsman will spend the rest of his despicable existence suffering from haterade.

      • October 25, 2011 at 11:51 pm

        Yep…Cos you absolutely right…Republicans think that getting rid og PBO will change things…Whether they like it or not….You think Bill Clinton is popular now…just wait until the OBAMA’s leave the white house….PBO will be a force not to be reckon with, he no longer has to cater to Repubs…and will make sure that his progress does not go in vain, He will help to get more good democrats in Congress..and so on. He’s popularity overseas is even higher than here…I know we might go through some Obama withdraws… and people will hunger for his presence just as they do now…but much more, because he’s no longer in a public eye. His books, his speeches anything PBO and FLOTUS touch is a gold mine:-)

    Senate Democrats have scheduled a committee vote on a bill to repeal DOMA — the federal Defense of Marriage Act — as a federal appeals court moves toward taking up legal challenges to the law.

    Patrick Leahy of Vermont, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Tuesday the committee will begin debate Nov. 3rd on the Respect for Marriage Act, introduced in March by Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA). It would repeal DOMA, signed into law by President Clinton, which defines marriage, for federal purposes, as a relationship between a man and a woman.

    White House begins review of EPA air toxics rule

    By Ben Geman
    The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has begun review of air toxics rules for coal-fired power plants that the Environmental Protection Agency plans to finalize in mid-December.

    The rules are working their way through the interagency review even as Republicans, and some power companies and Democrats, are trying to scuttle the regulation.

    On Monday EPA sent OMB the โ€œappropriate and necessaryโ€ finding that lays out the scientific and legal basis for the upcoming regulations for coal-fired and oil-fired power plants.

    The rest of the rule will eventually follow.

    Valerie Jarrett plays a lot of roles. She is the presidentโ€™s closest personal adviser, the first coupleโ€™s first friend and the chief liaison for the White House. She has also, for many of the administrationโ€™s discouraged supporters, embodied Obamaโ€™s cold shoulder.

    But now, like her boss, sheโ€™s warming up.

    โ€œPart of what we have to do is be better messengers,โ€ Jarrett, told an audience at the White House on Thursday. She added that the administration is eager to โ€œengage and have a conversationโ€ and that it is โ€œopen to good suggestions from wherever they come.โ€

    For all those overtures, the new openness has failed to quell a frequent โ€” and caustic โ€” question about VJ, as she is known in the West Wing:

    What, exactly, does Valerie Jarrett do?

    http://mobile.washingtonpost.com/rss.jsp?rssid=605&item=http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/white-house/valerie-jarretts-latest-role-shoring-up-obamas-support-base/2011/10/17/gIQARiI0GM_mobile.mobile&cid=-1

    • 83 dotster3
      October 26, 2011 at 12:22 am

      I assume she is very valuable behind the scenes, but I think it’s best if someone else is doing the messaging. Her manner and speech style can be irritating, imho. Rote and off-putting.

      • 84 utaustinliberal
        October 26, 2011 at 12:49 am

        I’m going to have to firmly pushback. Valerie’s manner is in no way off putting. Her speech style is in no way irritating. She is absolutely phenomenal at messaging. Absolutely phenomenal. During the beginning of the administration and even till today, whenever Morning Joe tells a big whopper of a lie about President Obama she shoots them off an email filled with FACTS about what PBO and his administration has accomplished. The other thing she does is that she makes sure she appears on Morning Joe, CNN, Today Show, GMA, and Early Show; heck even Fox News to correct their erroneous lies because she knows most people get their daily news that way. She also appears on Politics Nation with Rev Al because she knows that is a very favorable show for PBO and she makes sure that all his legislative and executive accomplishments are front and center in the consciousness of every voter. She takes so much heat from republicans because she defends PBO and FLOTUS to death and NEVER EVER hesitates in pulling out the big guns in calling republicans out. She is 100% great. A brilliant asset for PBO and FLOTUS. Having her in the whitehouse and especially in the west wing was one of the BEST decisions PBO and FLOTUS made.

        • October 26, 2011 at 1:05 am

          I agree. I don’t see her on MSM but I’ve seen her in person and watched her at many roundtables and forums and I think she has a very intelligent and compassionate, even soft, manner.

          Absolutely spot on UT…

          Valerie has to be one of the smartest and most hardest working people in the administration…

          She is also infinitely loyal and I think President and Mrs Obama are happier and even more secure carrying out their incredibly demanding duties for having Valerie Jarrett with them…

          She has been consistent, focused and fiercely protective of both the President and First Lady…

          She is not only a valuable member of the President’s senior staff, she is a solid and trusted friend in every sense of the word…

          I would be incredibly uncomfortable if Valerie ever left…

          She plays a very important role which undoubtedly President and Mrs Obama appreciate and cherish….

          Valerie Jarrett is extremely effective and those looking to oust her are part of the same group looking to destroy and defeat President Obama…

          They rightly see Valerie Jarrett as yet another impediment in their plan to take down President Obama and getting her out of the way would get them a step closer to their goal…

          And that will never happen…

        • October 26, 2011 at 8:55 am

          Utausinliberal, your assessment of Valerie Jarrett is spot on!!! I actually met Ms. Jarrett in 2007/2008 as I was volunteering in NC for the Obama campaign in the primary election against Hillary. She is impressive in an interesting way. What I think she brings to the table is a smart understanding of human nature, and the ability to see through the “bs,” and determine who may have unhelpful motives in trying to get near the First Family. It is my opinion that she is very skillful at judging motivation. Also, if you read about her connection to the First Family, you will find First Lady Michelle Obama worked for Ms. Jarrett early in her career. The First Lady introduced President Obama and Mrs. Jarrett. She seems like a “mother hen” protector to the First Family. Also, Ms. Jarrett has deep ties to the business community in Chicago, so she helped introduce President Obama to important community leaders early in his career. She was born in Iran. (Her speech style may be related to the fact that she speaks other languages.) Her father was an important physician who was unwilling to work in a hospital in Chicago wherein because he is a black American he could not enter the hospital through the front door, at that time in our racial history. So, he was hired to work at a hospital in Iran, the country where his daughter was born. I think Ms. Jarrett is an important person for the President. (This represents my reading and assessment of where Ms. Jarrett fits in this background of support for our President. I have no special knowledge of what is happening. I say these things because I was soo very impressed by Ms. Jarrett when I met her at a volunteer event. After the President was sworn in, I read an account of their relationship. It was clear to me at the time I was introduced to her that her number one goal is to help President Obama, and the First Family. Also, she works really hard to support this administration.) You said it best…she is “a brilliant asset for PBO and FLOTUS.”

Even though you blocked the person, because you follow another person who retweets that person’s tweets, then you’re still going to be seeing the person’s tweets. The only action is to block the person you follow who is retweeting the person’s tweets.

      The Republican Party has seriously over played their hand. The roll out of the American Jobs Act continues to have them back on their heels. The American people support the AJA and there are polls to prove it. It is still very puzzling to me that the GOP is essentially saying to the American people we have disdain for you but you should vote for us in 2012. We sat on our thumbs for three years and obstructed job creation but you should vote for us in 2012. The mind reels.

          I never wear my reading glasses to watch TV, since I usually only need them to … uh … read, but I put ’em on so I could get a better look at him! Is that crazy? Well then, call me crazy!

    President Obama so impressive again. Smart, personable, caring, sense of humor, appealing in every possible way. I don’t get how anyone could not like him. If you wrote it down, on paper, it doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. He’s the best ever.

    Call my 83 year old Mom and guess what? She was up watching the President and she said she enjoy him. And folks he was great. I listen to the serious stuff, and loved his sense of humor. Really enjoy him talking about the family. And the chicken story, how he was on his way to a fundraiser with Will and Jana Smith and the car was smelling like chicken, had a spot on his tie, his hands were greasy, he was just funny and I enjoyed him so much. He said the chicken was good. It just showed the country that none of those GOP clowns can compare with our President. Loved it when he explain that Michelle never said people can’t eat some of the things they like, just be careful how much you eat. It’s okay to have a slice of cake, just don’t eat the whole cake. And exercise is important also. Oh yea, hurray he stop smoking. Bless our President and his lovely family. Bless you all too. Good night.

    When Hillary Clinton arrived in Islamabad on Thursday night, Oct. 20, Pakistan’s General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani was wondering why the U.S. Secretary of State had even bothered to stop by and be civil. Earlier in the day, while still in Kabul, Clinton had warned Pakistan’s leaders that if they were not willing to take action against Afghan insurgents operating out of Pakistani territory, then they could end up “paying a very big price.” Abandoning his customary mumbling, Kayani asked, “If you’re going to serve an ultimatum, then what was the point of the visit?”

    But four hours later, at 2 a.m., the two fractious allies emerged with the broad outlines of a plan that could see Pakistan play a crucial role in helping the U.S. bring the decadelong war across the border to a close. After weeks of bitter recriminations, both sides say the relationship has been “stabilized” โ€” for the moment. “I think we’ve done a lot to clear the air,” Clinton told reporters on Friday. Quoting Kayani, she added that the two sides are “90% to 95% on the same page.”
