      Yes It did happen, amk for Obama. It was in the afternoon thread. I plead guilty for being a participant. But I blame Utaustinliberal for assigning me the Joe “You Lie” Wilson character. Now I have to go wash off the manure I was insensitively depositing on this fabulous site. I must, however, admit that it was really fun for me trying to be one of the GOP characters that I deeply detest.

    Thanks for a wonderful Halloween TOD and Chips. Being Jane Hamsher was nuts…..her mind is a dark hell hole. 😉

    For anyone who likes the History Channel and their documentaries they have a fantastic one entitled “It’s Good To Be The President.” It’s a six part documentary that can be found on Youtube. Beautiful and enligtening stuff. Plus it features our PBO. Another good documentary you can find on Youtube from the History Channel is “The President’s Book of Secrets.” Fascinating stuff. The behind the scenes minutiae that makes up a Presidency is mind blowing. The secrets, the men and women behind the curtain coordinating every second of the President’s day and his image is eye opening. Another must see documentary on Youtube is by the National Geographic entitled “The Obama White House Through The Lens.” It takes a look at PBO’s Presidency through the pictures and everyday interaction of the GENIUS Pete Souza. Plus it shows nice intimate moments between PBO and FL Michelle Obama and comments by President Obama. Finally, if you love history and are fascinated by it as I am, you absolutely have to watch the History Channel’s documentary entitled “America The Story Of Us.” It explores the founding of America, the civil war, slavery, rebellions, civil rights, technology, the great depression, 9/11, the invention of the automobile, the discovery of oil, how the mail order catalogue system came to be, Presidents and their administrations and finally, the election of Barack Obama. In depth stuff.

    So if anyone has a free day anytime soon, please check out the above mentioned documentaries. It’s enlightening to look back on history and see how far we’ve come, the mistakes and triumphs, and how far we so badly need to go to make this nation more equal, just, and fair.

      Happy Halloween, UT! Thanks for sharing this info. I am a history buff so I will check out the documentary you recommended. By the way, why did you assign me Joe”You Lie” Wilson? I hope I fulfilled your expectations of me despite the fact that I strongly detest the real Joe Wilson for his racist disrespect of the duly elected President of the United States, during the State of the Union Address. Nothing like what Joe Wilson did had ever happened in the entire history of Presidential State of The Union addresses. It’s really a shame that this Congressman was never shamed for his despicable behavior.

      Halloween jokes aside, thank you so much for your brilliant, and highly informative, posts on this site. I confess that I come to this site hoping to catch your reporting and analysis on what was discussed in the MSM, and especially on cable t.v. I also absolutely love your fearlessness in challenging the idiots who unfairly attack the President.

      Keep up the good work!

    Paul Ryan here. As usual I’m a little out of sync and late to the party, but it’s still Halloween on the west coast. I know… I know everyone is already gone home. Such is the life of Paul Ryan – late out of the gate with no idea of what time it is. I’m so wonderful I don’t care. Even though everyone has left the party, I’m still going to have my say.

    I remember when we were filled with such great hope a few years ago with then Senator Obama campaigning that he would reach across the isle and work with us. To our pleasure, he even tried to do just that for months! We used it to our advantage and he looked weak. Where is that Obama now? He has turned on us and now we can’t figure out which way he’s going next. Totally inconsiderate. I can’t even hold a town hall meeting without some old geezer calling me out to my face. Had to make sure at least 5 security took that old fart down. I don’t care if he worked all his life for Social Security and Medicare, he can’t stand up in my town hall and scream at me that way! I’ve decided to eliminate town halls until after 2012. It’s all Obama’s fault!

    After calling me out about my brilliantly presented budget that would privatize Medicare and further line the pockets of my 1% buddies, Obama now has the nerve to call out my beloved GOP for not passing that brillian….. oops, I mean ridiculous jobs bill. Instead of coming to Congress to talk to us and work with us like he used to try to do, he’s running all over the country talking directly to the American people. That’s not fair *whining, stomping my foot and kicking the dirt which flies back on my designer suit*. Man I can’t even kick rocks without them coming back and hitting me. Damn Obama. It’s all his fault!

    Can’t go out with my lobby buddies and drink my $350 bottle of wine without that Rutgers broad outing me! They tell me that I lost my chance at the big job for 2012 because my budget wasn’t well received. I don’t care what Obama says. It’s not a voucher system! It’s a way to curb our deficit! The Kochs told me so! What do you mean my poll numbers are down? Damn Obama! It’s all his fault!

      Hey, Imrj, better late than never! Joe “You lie” Wilson here, from the great Confederate State Of South Carolina. Paul Ryan is our man. If his plan to privatize SS and voucherize medicare helps us to get rid of the negro, Kenyan, muslim, socialist, communist, nazi, corporatist, friend of the oligarchs, obama, then I am all for his plan 100%. I submit that I still don’t know how Ryan’s plan will impact the poor whites in my constituency, but I am still for it because it is against Obama.

      Happy Halloween!

    Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) – Occupy Wall Street activists plan to amass in Iowa one week before the Iowa caucuses — up to the day they’re held on Jan. 3, CNN has learned.

    The plan has been dubbed the “First in the Nation Caucus Occupation” — a play on words for the first-in-the-nation presidential contest. The idea is to have activists from across the nation, and possibly beyond, descend on Iowa.

    The plan: “people coming to Iowa, occupying every presidential (candidate’s) office, shutting them down until they start talking real turkey about what’s going on in this country, where the 99% of the people who are not benefiting, at the expense of the 1% who are getting away with murder,” said Frank Cordaro, one of the organizers.

    The plan is to target offices for Republican candidates and President Barack Obama’s campaign offices in the state.


    Misdirected anger, maybe these fools have not been paying attention while they are off the grid and sleeping in tents. But, the President has been talking about their concerns. Wake up and smell the coffee!

      What a horrid wretched plan!? I think it is appropriate to engage civic organizations (ACLU/NAACP) and perhaps the Dept. of Justice to stop this plan. People have a constitutional right to peaceably assemble and I respect that but to purposefully thwart voting is dangerous precedent to set. There is too much at stake for this nonsense, this also represents a security threat to candidates and other politically active members of the community.

        I’m ready to call a spade a spade. This movement is about getting Romney elected. It’s not about getting legislation passed. It’s not about electing the right candidates into office. It’s about disrupting the 2012 elections by depressing young and/or Democratic voters (which ultimately benefits the Republican candidate), period.

    With President Obama at the top of the ticket I really believe we can do this. We just need to Occupy the damn polls-Register and Vote!

    Dems Poised to Pick Up 12 House Seats – Possibly 1 or 2 in Senate

    While Chuck Schumer is touting the 2012 Democrats could pick up a seat or two in the Senate, a new poll showed Democrats could also be looking at grabbing 12 House seats as well.

    Public Policy Polling surveyed 12 redistricted locations and found, in all 12, less than 50% of the voters would vote for an incumbent Republican. The study was done on behalf of the House Majority Pac which raises money for Democrats.

    Republicans listed as in trouble are in the redistricted areas of Arkansas, California, Illinois and Wisconsin.

    Tom Jenson, Director of Public Policy Polling said in a 3 page report, all Republican congressional seats are in play.


    • November 1, 2011 at 9:16 am

      We have to double that number and add 1 to get back the House. I don’t think I could take two more years of Rusty Boehner–its just too much strain on the spirit. We have to make sure PBO has very big coattails and can bring along 25 house seats. Someone called me to fund raise for the DCCC and I told him my money was going to the president’s campaign because the better off he was, the better off they were. He tried to argue with me, but I said that if all of the Democrats in Congress stood up and supported the president they would get more help for their re-election than my $25.

    Flunking Crisis Management 101

    By Steve Benen

    When a campaign is confronted with a controversy, Crisis Management 101 offers some basic guidelines: know the facts, get the truth out, and stick to the story. Herman Cain’s presidential campaign, confronted with allegations of sexual harassment, somehow managed yesterday to get all of this backwards.

    Keep in mind, Politico first started asking the Republican campaign about the allegations 10 days before publishing its report yesterday. In other words, Cain and his team knew this story was coming, and had all kinds of time to prepare.

    And they still managed to screw it up, offering a series of “shifting explanations,” many of which contradicted each other.

    Since POLITICO published a story Sunday night revealing that the NRA had reached financial settlements with two women who accused Cain of inappropriate behavior, Cain and his spokesmen have offered a shifting and inconclusive series of responses.

    The result is that a story that would have been damaging to Cain under any circumstances now threatens to derail his campaign permanently as the former trade association chief’s honesty comes into question.

    The Cain campaign first attacked the story without denying its accuracy, then said the story is wrong, and then effectively conceded that the basics of the story were accurate. Cain said he’d never been accused of harassment, then said he had been accused, but the charges were false. Cain said he knew “nothing” about the financial settlement with the accusers, then changed his mind, and said he “was aware” about one of them and even offered details on Fox News.

    Cain even said he’d referred the allegations to the National Restaurant Association’s human-resources department at the time, and that wasn’t true, either.

    Remember, the candidate and his team had a week and a half to prepare for this campaign bombshell. The Cain campaign had all kinds of time to get the facts, understand the details, and formulate a public response. Indeed, one can imagine a perfectly competent response to the story, which could have been offered yesterday morning: “I was accused; the charges were false; here’s how I and my organization responded at the time….”

    Instead, the top-tier Republican looked bad when the allegations came to light and managed to look worse when he couldn’t keep his story straight. Even the most ardent Cain backers would have to concede a campaign that contradicts itself, over and over again, despite plenty of lead time, is not where it needs to be.

    For that matter, if the allegations against Cain are accurate, his career in politics should come to an abrupt end.

      When you look at the Cain situation it is really no different than Romney’s. His flip flops are lies. When confronted, he changes his position.
      The entire GOP can’t be trusted. They lie and distort the record of President Obama every chance they get.

    Maybe we’re supposed to pray for a GOP jobs plan

    By Steve Benen

    Members of the House of Representatives will be on the floor today, taking the time to vote on a measure Republicans consider important. Is it a jobs bill? No. A measure to boost economic growth? Afraid not. The Chinese currency bill that already passed the Senate? Fat chance. Maybe legislation related to immigration or energy policy? We should be so lucky.

    It turns out, the GOP proposal that will reach the floor today has to do with support for the national motto.

    House Republicans on Tuesday will try to pass a resolution reaffirming that “In God We Trust” is the national motto of the United States.

    The concurrent resolution, sponsored by Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.), would not have the force of law, but instead is aimed at “supporting and encouraging the public display of the national motto in all public buildings, public schools and other government institutions.”

    The bill briefly outlines the history of government references to God, and adds in that “if religion and morality are taken out of the market-place of ideas, the very freedom on which the United States was founded cannot be secured.”

    Remember when Republican leaders said they’d curtail the practice of voting on symbolic resolutions that have no purpose other than making House members feel better? Well, forget it.

    Keep in mind, the entire House of Representatives will be spending time on this today for no apparent reason. “In God We Trust” is already the motto, and there is no effort afoot to change that. In effect, this resolution is largely intended to say, “Just in case anyone forgot, the national motto is still the national motto.”

    What a valuable use of congressional time.

    Last week, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said President Obama has decided “to quit governing.” As proof, Boehner pointed to Obama’s effort to rally support for an ambitious jobs agenda.

    Mr. Speaker, today your caucus is going to spend time “affirming” the national motto in the midst of a jobs crisis. Tell me again who’s quit governing?

    Adding insult to injury, the resolution’s conservative backers don’t even have their history right. The measure states as fact that “In God We Trust” has been an integral part of United States society since its founding.” That’s clearly wrong. The phrase makes no appearances in the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, or any of the Founding Fathers’ writings. Early American leaders chose “E pluribus unum” as the motto on the Great Seal of the United States in 1782, and this was the country’s unofficial motto for nearly two centuries. That changed in 1956 when, as some kind of symbolic Cold War gesture, Congress chose “In God We Trust” as the official national motto. But given that the nation’s “founding” pre-dates 1956, the claim isn’t at all true.

    But this would still be a waste of time, even if conservatives understood history. The national motto is not facing any danger. The American middle class is. The sooner congressional Republicans get their priorities straight, the better.

      Why every media outlet in the country is not reporting this 24X7 is a scandal. The only thing the mainstream media wants to talk about is what has President Obama done lately. Why can’t he do this, why can’t he do that. Then there is the obsession with his poll numbers. It’s as if the congress does not exist at all. The media has abdicated it’s responsibility to educate and inform the public with the facts about their government. Shame on them.

      I thought Toure was just fantastic last night with Lawrence O’Donnell. Toure had Herman’s number perfectly. Cain absolutely comes off as a minstrel. An entertainer shucking and jiving for the white folk. I could not believe he was singing at the National Press Club. And to hear his defenders like Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh using the race card was nauseating. I just threw up my hands when I heard that Ann Coulter said (paraphrasing) “Our blacks are better than their blacks”. The mind reels…..

        November 1, 2011 at 10:43 am

        I truly despise the vile Ann Coulter but what I think she was saying is that liberals believe our blacks are better than conservatives’ blacks and that’s why we attack their blacks like Thomas and Cain. She also added to that ridiculousness by saying there’s nothing Democrats hate more than a black republican. These people need help. They are crying racism against their candidate when PBO, his family and black people in general have been under an unprecedented racial assault since he announced his candidacy, throughout his presidency and most likely untill he leaves office in 2016.

        Right wingers are the biggest bullies on the block. They have proven they will do and say anything to not only defeat PBO but to destroy him and insure there will never be another black president ever again but the minute you raise even the most modest defense against them they scream like little girls and are shocked by what they perceive as your unfair attack on them. Can you believe it? Republicans are the victims of racism by Democrats. It’s breathtaking on its face and just leaves you speechless.
