joining forces

First lady Michelle Obama greets RyAnne Noss at the Labor Department, Jan. 30, where she announced proposed rules to help caregivers of wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans, giving them the ability to provide care for their loved ones need without fear of losing their jobs. RyAnne Noss left school to take care of her husband SFC Scot Noss, who was injured in Afghanistan in Feb. 2007 during his eighth tour of duty as an Army Ranger. Mrs. Obama was joined by Department of Labor Secretary Hilda Solis.

    “IF”- by Rudyard Kipling Dedicated to our President

    “IF you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
    If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ‘em up with worn-out tools:

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    ‘ Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch,
    if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!”

    Mitch Daniels Joins John Boehner’s Web Of Keystone XL Corruption

    It is common knowledge that Republicans engage in misinformation campaigns to curry favor with their supporters whether they are special interest groups, lobbyists, or ignorant Americans unwilling or unable to verify their favorite standard bearer’s statements. Over the past two or three months, Republican machinations to expedite construction of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline have tied the project to 160 million American’s payroll tax cut extension with fallacious job creation numbers and promises of lower gas prices to force President Obama to grant a construction permit. Speaker of the House John Boehner is TransCanada and the oil industry’s point man on the project and his persistence at parroting wildly inflated jobs numbers provoked a petition demanding his resignation or expulsion from Congress. Last Tuesday, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels joined Boehner in pushing the pipeline during Republican’s response to President Obama’s State of the Union address using anti-Obama rhetoric to enrich the oil industry and Canada’s tar sand industry.

    Daniels’ pernicious remarks are standard fare for Republicans seeking to portray the President as a detriment to economic growth, and he said President Obama’s extremism “cancels a perfectly safe pipeline that would employ tens of thousands,” and that his decision was a “pro-poverty agenda.” Besides Daniels’ programmed anti-Obama rhetoric, his remark about the pipeline’s safety and job creation numbers are false according to TransCanada and many independent agencies, but there is more to Daniels’ pack of lies that is stunning and warrants outrage from Indiana taxpayers.

    According to recent disclosures, Daniels is part of a concerted Republican effort to lobby Congress to push the tar sands pipeline through prime agricultural land and over the Ogallala Aquifer that supplies groundwater for 20% of America’s agriculture and drinking water for 2 million Americans. It is despicable that Daniels lied to Americans about the pipeline, but it is beyond the pale that his lobbying effort is being funded with Indiana resident’s tax dollars

    The GOP’s Plan To Corner Obama On The Keystone Pipeline

    Republicans are pushing full speed ahead to authorize the Keystone XL pipeline via congressional action after President Obama rejected it on the grounds that the narrow time window he had was insufficient to evaluate the environmental consequences. The strategy is aimed at exploiting Democratic divisions and pushing Obama into a corner politically.

    Most Senate Republicans — along with Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (WV) — are now backing legislation to approve of the Canada-to-Texas pipeline. House Republicans intend to attach it to their upcoming infrastructure bill, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said Sunday.

    Even if both chambers of Congress vote to approve the project, Obama can veto the legislation, and it’s unlikely he’ll get overridden. But that’s what Republicans want him to do: force him repeatedly to take a position against the pipeline so they can bludgeon him with it politically.

    How to Nurture the Press Corp
    by BooMan
    Mon Jan 30th, 2012 at 01:15:01 PM EST

    Any effort to explain media bias in favor or against any of the presidential candidates should really start with an examination of why, exactly, the Establishment press corp developed such a gargantuan man-crush on John McCain in 2000. I don’t know if I can provide a precise answer to that question. Part of it was that the press corp was, at that time, largely made up of men who had avoided military service in Vietnam. They seemed to get some kind of vicarious thrill out of McCain, who they constantly heralded as a ‘hero,’ even though his military service and career were the furthest thing from heroic. No one could dispute that McCain had suffered terribly while serving the country, and that was fetishized by a group of men who hadn’t suffered at all. So, that was the starting point. McCain was a real man. Bush and Gore were spoiled brats who only got where they were because of their daddies.

    But admiration for McCain and a certain sense of personal inadequacy only goes so far in explaining why the press corp fawned all over the senator from Arizona. Just as important, John McCain made himself extremely accessible. He traveled around in his Straight Talk Express bus and mingled freely with the reporters. He told bawdy jokes. He provided good quotes. He helped the reporters meet their deadlines and keep their editors happy. And he fed them well. He acted as if he liked the people covering his campaign, and maybe he did. The result was that reporters largely forgot that John McCain, too, only got where he was because of his daddy. They forgot that he had been even more of a spoiled brat than Gore and Bush before he wound up in the Hanoi Hilton. They didn’t talk about how many planes he had destroyed. They didn’t dwell on how close he came to being expelled from the Naval Academy or how he graduated near the bottom of his class. They didn’t talk about how he ditched his wife after she was disfigured in a car accident. They turned his ethical lapses in the Keating 5 scandal into a virtue that had launched his principled crusade to redeem himself.

    To summarize, the press saw in McCain someone who embodied the courage they lacked, who suffered while they were comfortable. They saw him as absurdly virtuous, which he was not. And they liked him. They were drawn to his personality and appreciated that McCain treated them well and made their jobs easier.

    ……………………………

    But, again, it’s not that Romney is a liar. Newt Gingrich may be the most accomplished liar in the entire country. Romney’s bigger problem is that he treats reporters as the enemy, denies them access, probably doesn’t feed them all that well, and doesn’t make their jobs easier. On top of that, the press corp can’t relate to his personal biography. They may have skipped the Vietnam War, but they didn’t do it knocking on doors in France as a Mormon missionary. They may admire personal wealth, but not really so much when the fortune is made as a vulture capitalist. And Romney doesn’t tell any bawdy jokes.

    The press may be pulling for Gingrich to stay in the race and do lasting damage to Romney, but it’s not because they like Gingrich or strictly because they want to sell papers or get page-views. They just don’t like Mitt. He’s given them no reason to like him.

      The media doesn’t like Romney? MSNBC has been singing Romney’s praises all day.

      They certainly like him A LOT more than they do President Obama. It’s the people who love PBO more, so obviously the media has to strike a balance between what they like and what they need to do generate more views. Having Romney on the screen 24/7 will not generate as many views as having POTUS because the viewers by and large prefer POTUS to Romney.

    Sign the petition please!

    John Boehner has invested a lot of money in Canadian Oil Companies and is pushing to pass the Keystone XL Pipeline at any cost, including tying it to the next payroll tax cut extension. He has invested $365,000 in seven companies that would benefit from the Keystone Pipeline approval, setting himself up to reap great financial rewards from his investment. We are calling for his resignation.

    Hey All, I really hope the Newt keeps this thing close in Florida. As despicable as he is, I want him to stay in the race as long as possible. Mittney will implode given enough time, he has a temper and like many CEO types, he don’t want nobody to bring him no bad news. He will kill the messenger (journalist, etc). I want him in long enough to be forced to do more one-on-one interviews. He’s easily rattled. Newt is pandering to thel lowest denominator and there’s not enough of them to make a difference. He’s actually losing the indies.

I hope those polls that came out today showing it tightening are true because if he shows well he will take his arrongant behind into Super Tuesday with lessons learned from FL.

      This will like you said force Romney to speak with the media more and he will absolutely implode.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) opened the Senate on Monday by complaining that Republicans were attempting to keep the bipartisan STOCK Act, a bill to prevent insider trading in Congress, from reaching the Senate floor. 

    “I’m really disappointed that I had to file cloture to stop a Republican filibuster on this worthy legislation, but I did,” said Reid of the bill that was originally penned by Republican Sen. Scott Brown (Mass.) and Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.)  “They’re not going to let us move to this. We had to file cloture to stop this filibuster… I repeat, it is too bad we had to file cloture.” 

    Reid filed for cloture before adjourning the Senate on Friday indicating that at least one senator had objected to allowing Democratic leadership from bring the bill to the floor for debate. Reid’s move set up the 5:30 p.m. vote for Monday which could allow the legislation on the Senate floor.

    So according to reports, Rick Santorum’s 3-Year-Old Daughter Nearly Died This Weekend and yet another report said that Santorum will be back on the trail Thursday I believe.

    Ya know, I’m really happy for the family that the daughter is doing better, but if there was a better reason to GET OUT of the campaign then this is it.

    I’m sorry, but if I had a child as sick as Santorum’s daughther is, then the last thing I’d be doing is running for President….PERIOD.

    I honestly just don’t understand this “pro-family values” crowd and their “I’m pro-family…that is until I run for office” mentality. It seems hypocritical, IMHO.

    Martin Bashir Exposes The Great Republican Hoax

    By Karoli

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

    Martin Bashir may be the most underrated show host on cable television. His show is consistently smart, loaded with facts and good discussion without the incessant screaming and fireworks of other cable news shows. His interview of Rep. Joe Walsh was masterful and yet, polite. Which is why when Bashir closes his Thursday show with a three-minute comment where he’s clearly a bit angry, it gets my attention.

    Mr. Bashir is frustrated with the constant drumbeat from Republicans about President Obama allegedly turning the US government into a “European-style government” and so he delivers an excellent argument for why they are wrong, and why the ones who are trying to point the United States in the direction of European-style governance are…Republicans.

      Thanks for this LH. I sincerely hope that Bashir doesn’t feel he is underrated because he is top-notch in my book. He is not afraid to speak truth and call out BS every freaking day. He and Rev Al. are two of the saving graces of MSNBC. He calls out the weakness of the Democrats when they are weak, he calls out the lies, racism, sexism, and downright ugliness of the GOP, he is relentless in his pursuit of truth. He is just amazing. I haven’t been disappointed since I began watching Bashir Live on MSNBC. His ‘Clear The Air’ segment towards the end of the show is in my opinion, the stuff of legends. I so admire him for not letting MSNBC curtail his sharp tongue, rapier wit, and smart mind.

I just recently started watching him and I really like his style. He focuses on the facts which is so rare on cable. He just makes sense. He tells it like it is. It is so refreshing.

        Right now Martin is ending the show talking about the dishonesty and pathological lying of Newt and Willard. It’s shameful. This whole issue of GOP lying and making stuff up makes me want to spit nails. It’s infuriating. Martin is one of the few hosts that points this crap out on a regular basis. I think I will send him a thank you note today for pointing out the lies.

Even Michael Steel said it was out of line. These fools have lost their minds. I’m getting ready to see if I can’t blow of Twitter with my outrage for Renice.

    Rinse Repeat has made derogatory remarks about PBP in the past.

    Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Wisconsin GOP, referred to the “execution” of Obama three separate times during a recent media conference call.

    “Feingold had mentioned that he thought that it would be good if we captured Obama in the battlefield setting and that he suffered the quote-unquote ultimate punishment there,” Priebus told reporters while attempting to explain that Sen. Feingold (D-Wis.) was “out of the mainstream” because of his opposition to using capital punishment — even on Osama bin Laden — as a tool of the American criminal justice system.

    “I find this point that he’s made to be completely disgusting. I think it’s offensive to the people of Wisconsin, I hope he has an explanation as to why he thinks Obama ought not to be executed and why he thinks we ought to bring Osama bin Laden to the United States that he should be captured alive and actually have a trial,” Priebus said later.

    Probed by reporters on how Republican Senate candidate Ron Johnson would feel on these issues, Priebus surmised that he would also favor the execution of “Obama.”

    “My guess is he would believe that Obama should be executed and he oughta be treated as a war criminal,” Priebus explained.

    A reporter from WisPolitics later pointed out his use of Obama instead of Osama.

    “You mean Osama bin Laden I take it,” the reporter said.

    “Uh, right,” responded Priebus.

    He said this in October of 2010

      One of the reasons they got rid of their experiment Michael Steele. They needed a real attack dog this time. There will be no RNC policy or ideas. His sole purpose from now until November is to attack at the lowest level possible. If the nominee is Mitshap, they’ll need to energize the base to show up and vote. That’ll require a lot of red meat. If it’s Loonie Newie (doubtful), then they’ll play like a tag team whipping up the frenzied teabaggers. The good news…this turns off independents.

    Willard: ” did you guys see. this weekend PBO wrote a little note to Ahmadinejad saying ‘ please can we meet?’ This foreign policy of pretty please just doesn’t work……….”
    Ugh!!!!!! I hate that fucking liar!!! Why the hell hasn’t lightening struck him yet? 😡 ——-what an asshole. The guest on Martin’s show corrected the lie by saying the note was 3 years ago when PBO first came into office when he was trying to reset relations with Iran. He said PBO had to do this because if he didn’t, he wouldn’t have gotten all these countries on our side against Iran including China. The guy said that PBO did not extend this hand of friendship out of naivete, but because it was a necessary step to get where we are now. He made the argument that PBO has placed the strongest sanctions ever on Iran which is completely different from what Willard’s lying ass was saying over the weekend. Dirty fucker. Can’t wait for PBO to rip him apart. Stinking bastard. 😡
