linda’s story

AFP: In a cramped campaign office a couple of blocks from a sprawling General Motors assembly plant, Linda Koch rings the bell used to signal that a new volunteer has signed up for the fight to reelect President Barack Obama.

“Woohoo!” the triumphant Koch chirps. “She’s bringing her sister too!” …..

…..  In the month leading up to the January 31 Florida primary, the Obama campaign registered nearly as many new voters in the Sunshine State as it had in all of 2011.

Linda Koch is one of 15,000 “neighborhood team leaders” working on Obama’s ground crew. She says the most persuasive message she has is the story of why she got involved in politics for the first time a few months ago at the age of 56.

Koch was laid off from her job at a Detroit-area hospital shortly before she was diagnosed with throat cancer. Then Chrysler warned that it would go out of business without government help, putting her husband’s livelihood – and their health insurance – at risk.

“I didn’t want to die of lack of insurance,” she said. “It’s just not the way we should do things here in America – it’s not right.”

Politics came home to Koch when Obama was elected and pushed through the bailout of Chrysler and GM and landmark health care reform. Her husband’s job – and the US automotive industry – was saved. And people like Koch couldn’t be denied insurance coverage anymore because of a “pre-existing condition.”….

    Off to spread Linda’s story. PBO’s policies really do affect everyday people. Imagine where Linda would have been if Romney was the President during the automobile industry’s disaster. Or if PBO had listened to whiny emoprogs to scrap the ACA because it didn’t include a public option.

      And the emoprogs were full of it anyway – were they in a coma when he said all through the campaign that he’d go for the public option if he were starting from scratch? I mean, hello. Don’t call yourself ‘his base’ and say you don’t remember. I’m post menopausal with a memory of swiss cheese and I remember quite well. idjits!

      I think I’d also like to thank Governor Rick Scott for probably contributing to the uptick in Obama voters. Nothing quite says ‘buyers remorse’ like the result of either staying home because of the 2010 ‘enthusiasm gap’ or actually voting for the guy with the worst approval record in the country (though I’ve yet to find anyone who will admit to voting for him).

    Robney Super PAC spent 14 million in january-

    The pro-Romney super-PAC Restore Our Future spent $14 million in January, according to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.

    That’s more than twice the nearly $7 million the super-PAC raised in January, although Restore Our Future finished the month with more than $16 million in the bank, according to a report in The New York Times.

    Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced Monday that an agreement had been reached between the United States and Mexico to allow drilling for oil and natural gas along the boundary between the two countries. 

    Under the agreement, 1.5 million acres of the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf will be opened for drilling. The interior department’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management estimates there are 172 million barrels of oil in the area.

    Linda…thank you for your story. It’s personal and Obama’s policies not only saved your husbands job, but allowed you to get the medical treatment you needed. What can the GOP say against those 2 personal reasons for you joining our army?

    OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOz!!!!!! :concern trolling: :concern trolling: Thanks so much Tweety. So the Twit has a segment coming up about gas prices and wonders if this is the issue repugs have been waiting on to go after PBO. hm. 🙄

      You know it was coming. Not too surprised it was Tweety giving the repug talking points. I haven’t been able to watch his show since he had Tom Delay on talking about how much he respected him, last year I think or whenever it was. ugh! Heard on twitter about how he defended Pat Buchanan after he was fired. Sometimes he’s spot on, most times he’s hard to take anymore.

        oops, I guess shortened links don’t show up clickable here. Don’t post here much, but it’s a great article about how speculation is what drives the price of gas – most of the MSM will play this as election fodder because it’s all a game to them anyway, not about actual journalism.

    Tweety just asked if rising gas prices was PBO’s fault. seriously? 🙄

    • February 20, 2012 at 5:41 pm

      at least he has some smart guy on answering questions. some woman from Reuters says that this gas thing is a politically smart issue to go after PBO on. She says they should bring Keystone back up too. Really? why the fuck are you on MSNBFOX giving the GOP political advice?

    • February 20, 2012 at 5:45 pm

      sounds like it’s up to how OPEC feels about the next president of the US. If they’d rather see PBO keep the job, they’ll help out by releasing more oil. If they’d rather a pub, then they won’t. However, don’t underestimate PBO. He could very well release the reserves we have on hand. Also, we know this shortage is speculative, he may do something to curtail or expose speculation in the oil market.

      • February 20, 2012 at 5:58 pm

        OPEC has no control over the price of oil. We now produce more oil in this country than we import. We are actually exporting gasoline to other countries. Demand is the lowest is has been in several years supply is plentiful. This really is all about the speculators, and they definitely don’t want PBO to win.

      Well at least it got him off of comparing PBO to Kennedy to sell books. Amazing how many books were sold using PBO as fodder, positive or negative. What gets me is again, you have men sitting around talking about a decision a very successful woman has to make for herself, but somehow needs her husband’s influence to make it happen. Also, they are right, whether we like it or not, PBO will need Bill as a surrogate, especially in the south. Remember, just cause many call themselves progressives, doesn’t mean they are.

I think in the case of Santorum, he’s not only looking over the top to the independents, he’s taking the whole party down with him.

I can’t say how much I admire him. At the same time I read that Santorum is talking about President Obama’s “phony theology”. Can there be any bigger contrast between these two men? I have been around those thin lipped, judgemental, phony Christians like Santorum my whole life. People like Rick are mentally ill. I don’t even have the words to say what I think about that terrible man. Hateful and mean! God bless President Obama!!!!!!!!!

    • February 20, 2012 at 7:50 pm

      I loved reading that book, too. It’s a striking contrast that the GOP are attacking President Obama as a person, while he’s challenging them to come forward with their ideas so they can be properly considered. President Obama hasn’t uttered one single personal attack against anyone on the right – except for joking about them at the correspondents dinners. Meanwhile, all they have going for them are lies and personal attacks, because they can’t attack his record legitimately.

      It’s a beautiful book auni. I liked it even better than The Audacity of Hope. The kind of book where you can’t help but develop a deep respect for the author. Very few books I have read have made such an impression on me. It’s one I will read again and again.

    Hey, This is a great story. Excellent work as usual.

    The prior post reminded me of another “Obama Flag Non-controversy” A Wingnut radio host got upset about the flags behind the Prez in 2008 in Ohio because he thought that the Prez had made his very own flag & might plan on “starting an African Country in the US, if he was elected”????? The Ohio flag has an O for Ohio. The president did not invent a new flag. Guess Politico remembered something about that day & thought he had a ‘real scandal’ in WI. They never learn…….

    Guys, I’m going to go off topic for a little bit to say something that has been bordering me about this Israel/Iran situation. I hate feeling like they are trying to set up President Obama. Bibi is pissing me off right now. I hate feeling like Netanyahu is trying to play a big role in our election, and he’s doing everything he can to hand the presidency to a republican. He is power hungry, and showing the same arrogance that Bush and Cheney showed in the lead up to the Iraq war. Netanyahu needs to stop this madness about starting any military action against Iran, or he will live to regret it. Iran is not Iraq, and anyone that is crazy enough to think Iran will be easy to invade doesn’t know their history. I pray for President Obama, and I pray for the people of Iran and Israel that this can be resolve without any lives lost. I hope no one is upset that I brought this subject up because it’s something that has been bothering me for sometime now.

    • February 20, 2012 at 6:23 pm

      It’s been bothering me too, but I don’t think it would be wise for Netanyahu to mess with the President. All this war-drum beating is sounding a little too much like the run-up to Iraq but I put my money on the smartest man in the room.

        What do you mean you hope “the President does the right thing and let’s Israel invade Iran?” That’s very careless speak. That’s NOT the right thing. Yes, Bibi keeps stomping his foot like a petulant child and Ahmadinejad keeps throwing tantrums but to advocate for either country to invade one or the other is reckless. Do you know what blowbacks and repercussions would come of such a catastrophic event? War is not fun and nothing to speak of or write of in such a cavalier manner.

          I read Brit’s comment differently as in if Israel decides to invade Iran that we should stay out of it. It seems like Israel is spoiling for a fight and is expecting the US to jump on board just because. Bibi and company seem to have a lot riding on that assumption.

          Not saying what you said is wrong because it isn’t but I just had a different interpretation.

          You know, UT, for a young person, you are bring so much wisdom to your commentaries! Your comment is right on the mark! For God’s sake, when are people going to realize that waging war is not a game? When are people going to wise up about the unpredictability of war? Look, I don’t like Iran to have nuclear weapons. But then again, I also don’t like the U.S. Russia, China, the U.K, France, Israel, India, and Pakistan having nuclear weapons either. Let’s be honest, in the whole history of nuclear weapons only one country has used them: the United States. I doubt very much if the U.S. would have used nuclear weapons if Japan also had nuclear weapons and could retaliate. I strongly believe that the reason the U.S. used nuclear weapons was because her adversary, Japan, did not have nuclear weapons.

          I particularly do not like Iran’s President, Ahmadnejad because he strikes me as zealous islamic fundamentalist. But the same is true of the Israel fundamentalist Zionist Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu! Both leaders need to be restrained rather than being encouraged to embark on a foolish war that may have no winners. I see absolutely no compelling reason for a nuclear state like Israel waging a preemptive war to supposedly prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. I understand the rationale for sanctions, based on the collective will of the United Nations, to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons. What I don’t accept is the idea that one country can take it upon itself to attack another country that has not attacked it. I also think that, unless you believe in the idea that some nations are superior and more rational than others, there is no plausible argument why countries who possess nuclear weapons should impose a different morality on the countries that don’t!

          Personally, I think Netanyahu is as zealous and irrational as Ahmedinejad. Thankfully the only advantage Israel has over Iran is that they are a Democratic country and Bibi could be easily thrown out of office. Nevertheless, even Democratic societies can be easily propagandized to support irrational and uncalled for wars. We witnessed this happen in both the U.S. and the U.K. in 2003!

    • February 20, 2012 at 6:35 pm

      Ol’ Netti should know that PBO don’t play that. No way PBO falls for the okey-doke. Netti’s just flexing his muscles for Iran to quiver in their boots. Both her and Immagetajacket remind me of the guy being held during a fight says, ‘let me go, let me at em’…all the while hoping that they’re held tight. Netti doesn’t even have the backing to bomb Iran in his own country. The whole world want sanctions, not war.

    • February 20, 2012 at 6:39 pm

      Hi Jewelz, I couldn’t agree more, I don’t think there’s any doubt that Netanyahu is sabre-rattling over Iran in an attempt to pressure PBO and, ultimately, influence the US election – and we all know who he’d like to see beaten in November. And it really doesn’t seem to concern him how dangerous and destabilizing all of this is, as if the Middle East wasn’t unstable enough. The man is only content when he’s stirring up this level of tension. We’ve been hearing about Iran’s nuclear threat for years and years, but it’s curious how it only becomes hyped at times like this. It’s terrifying.

    • February 20, 2012 at 6:51 pm

      Jewelz, so with on this one. I’m so fricking tired of this man. He’s getting on my last nerve.

    • February 20, 2012 at 7:28 pm

      It’s been bothering me, too, Jewelz. It seems unbelievable that the world is in this position again, only a decade after the erroneous buildup to the Iraq war. It’s like people have forgotten that 5000 American soldiers, and potentially millions of Iraqis died in that war. And yet, the GOP and their Netanyahu cohort so callously and carelessly march towards war. Last time, there were hundreds of thousands of people who marched in the streets to protest the Iraq war. I wonder if there will be people marching at the Capital and White House in two weeks when Netanyahu comes to town to get encouragement from his GOP buddies, and to try to embarrass the President again. They’re putting the whole world in danger. Many of us just want peace.

    If they are relying on the RNC, they just went into the black, with 7 million CSS on hand, that’s seven million.

          just after spending two years helping the Obama election I decided to watch all of the movies and documentaries in order that I could find on the Presidents of the US. I spent over a year at it and became so much more informed.

          Then I proceded to watch West Wing through twice. I missed it when it was on tv as I was a teacher and taxi mom for our four kids. We didn’t watch tv in our house as we were too busy with all sorts of activities and involvements. Another favorite besides the fictional West Wing was Backstairs of the White House (I think that was the name of it). It was about two generations of a family that worked at the WH and gave a perspective from the help of the Presidents and their families inhabiting the WH while they worked there. I do believe Cicely Tyson was in the series. I think it was not fictional. I recommend watching it if you have not seen it.

    Something that I have found quite amusing this election cycle is the number of people attending these rallies. Santorum got around 3K people to come to some mega church in Georgia (that had to be hard 🙄 ). But then Senator Obama was getting tens of thousands..and who can forget in St Louis he got 100K people . The MSM is so trying to replicate 08 its not even funny.

    Reblogged this on PMC – just another Michigander and commented:
    I’ve known Linda all my life – and she works harder than anyone to re-elect President Obama. This is why we need to get those personal stories out there!
