          Just saw Romney on CNN. Of course Blitzer, the drama queen was practically salivating while asking Romney what did he think of the President’s remarks on the open mic. Of course, Romeny, the drama queen, was wringing his hands and crying “SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!” “The President has already comprised our national security and now he’s in bed (paraphrase) with Russia and going to do something (???) without telling the American people if he is re-elected.

          Lawdy I can’t stand Romeny.

      This wasn’t planned, let’s not kid ourselves. It’s an unforced error, very unusual for PBO to make. Let’s hope that by tomorrow it’ll go away. In the meantime, the media is smearing Trayvon and spitting Republicans ObamaCare lies.

      • March 26, 2012 at 5:58 pm

        I agree it wasn’t planned. It will go away, because this week is all about the HCR SCOTUS case. There is no oxygen left for this “gaffe” to make any news.

        Plus it wasn’t anything that would bother anyone but voters who won’t be voting for POTUS anyway and just use any reason to confirm why they don’t like POTUS.

    I’m bringing over my comment from A Word from Tally, just ‘cuz I feel I must share the quote from Charles Blow with the masses! 🙂

    Bill Maher’s interview with NYT columnist Charles Blow (his articles get cited here every now and then)
    I know, I know… it’s Bill Maher, just ignore him and listen to his guest, okay? Trust me…

    My favorite line comes from the exchange where Maher asked him to comment on Geraldo Rivera’s saying wearing the hoodie was part of the blame for Trayvon Martin’s killing (around 7:20). “…It’s the rape defense “… she wore something that was too revealing and was looking for it.” There are no come-shoot-me-clothes!”

    It’s a damn shame how the idiots who pass for journalists have not covered Pres. Obama’s trip to Korea. I’ve had two pretty “with it” friends say “What? I didn’t even know that he was out of the country!” when I mentioned his visit to the DMZ.

      Somebody on the earlier thread pointed out that the pool reporters may file stories, but it’s the editors back home who DECIDE what to broadcast/publish. Maybe we can cut the rank-in-file a little slack. It’s the decision-makers who need to get slammed hard.

      • 47 isonprize
        March 26, 2012 at 4:29 pm

        Dudette, that was me that said that. I pointed out that there was a guy in the video of PBO at Camp Boniface in the DMZ who had the NBC peacock on his sleeve. It was obvious to me that he was working pretty hard to get PBO’s audio. So, in other words, there are media staff with PBO to cover his travels. It just pisses me off that the stories don’t make it back the the “Mainstream Media” for the everyday American to see.

        That’s a good point, Dudette. The president, by default, gets covered. But if the editors back home don’t put him on tv or the front page, that’s not the reporters’ fault.

          After WWII we were taught that the big bad enemy used propaganda but the good USA had a free press to inform the public. We believed in truth and the American way they did not they lied. Even our newsreels reinforced that message.

(Every main dish he ‘cued was one less she would make the rest of the week.) He figured out a way to make cornbread after the coals were on ‘simmer’ by close all the vents in the Weber and putting that domed top on it. That was some ” good eatin’!!”.

    DISGRACEFULLY DIVISIVE NEWT GINGRICH

    My Favorite Martin

    Gingrich says it’s wrong to identify with victimized blacks. But it’s fine to identify with victimized Christians.

    By William Saletan

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

    Newt Gingrich says it’s disgraceful of President Obama to express a feeling of kinship with Trayvon Martin. It’s wrong, according to Gingrich, because it divides Americans into groups and implies that Obama would be less sympathetic to a white victim. An argument for impartiality in the Martin case can legitimately be made. But it can’t be made by Gingrich, because he’s an enthusiastic practitioner of identity politics. It’s just that the victim group with whom he chooses to identify is Christians, not blacks.
    .
    .
    Let’s recap Gingrich’s statements about Muslims over the last three months. We’re entitled to defend “our religion” against hostile Muslims. American judges are favoring “radical Islam over Christianity and Judaism.” Muslim immigrants are OK as long as they aren’t trying “to impose their civilization on ours.” Whenever and wherever churches are burned, “we” are owed an apology. Presidents should stop “apologizing for Islam” while “dissing Christianity.” The entertainment industry is hostile to Christianity but “protective of Islam.” And Obama is “more sensitive to radical Islamists who are killing young Americans than he is to the Catholic Church, to Baptists, to fundamentalists.”

    And yet, after all these statements, Gingrich calls Obama disgracefully divisive for remarking on his resemblance to Trayvon Martin. He asks whether Obama is “suggesting that if it had been a white who had been shot, that would be OK.”

    ROMNEY & KYL MAKE SKID MARKS TO THE FAINTING COUCH OVER “HOT MIC” COMMENTS

    When presidents meet a ‘hot mic’

    By Steve Benen

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

    Mitt Romney is feigning outrage, and Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), who’s often confused about U.S. policy in Russia but likes to pretend otherwise, is looking for the fainting couch, but Obama’s comments aren’t exactly scandalous.

    The president believes the election season restricts his foreign policy options? Well, sure, but that isn’t exactly breaking news. The administration, if given a second term, plans to have additional talks with Russia on missile defense, and would like Russia to be patient until after the election? Yep, we knew that, too.

    Ultimately, Obama didn’t say anything we didn’t already know, or echo remarks he’s already made publicly. He was a little more candid in his delivery with Medvedev in Seoul, but it’s not unusual for U.S. presidents to seek some election-season “space” from negotiating partners, especially when it’s an election year in both countries.

          Debz, your comment just gave me a brilliant idea. 😉 Since the US is a world leader, the whole world should be allowed a certain number of delegates for the presidential election. Not enough to overrule the wishes of the American people, but enough to be meaningful. – a small percentage of the current total delegate count maybe. What do you think? After all, the final decision greatly affects the lives of those outside the US almost as much as those inside.

    Some info I thought would be useful-

    One Adam B is covering the arguments in the Supreme Court re the Affordable Care Act:

    He says : ” Having read this morning’s argument transcript, I agree with the courtroom observers who believe that the Court will blow past this issue and resolve the constitutionality of the individual mandate on the merits. Justice Alito, and maybe the chief justice, do seem favorably inclined to the Anti Injunction Act (AIA) argument, but I don’t yet see five votes for it.

    The AIA issue wasn’t pressed by either side of the case; the Court brought in outside counsel Robert Long to argue this point. While the transcript gets wonky at times, I want to focus on the Court’s discussion on whether the penalty constitutes a “tax.”

    Video of the arrest on June 28, 2009 remains archived for posterity. Fox News anchor Rick Folbaum took great glee in recounting Bush’s fall from No. 1 overall pick in the 2004 Major League Baseball draft to wailing face down in a San Diego parking lot.

    FRAMING LESSONS

    3 More Words And Phrases Democrats Should Start Universally Using — And — A Call To Action

    By Jill W Klausen (3/26/12)

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

    2. Never, ever say “Gun Control laws” again. From now on, only talk about “Gun Responsibility laws.”

    On the heels of the tragic slaying of Trayvon Martin, and headlines like these being splashed across the internet: “Gun sales soaring, boosted by gun laws, concerns about Obama,” gun responsibility will be a topical issue in this election cycle once again. And we’re going to have to get this narrative really, really right if we want to win on it this time around.

    Let’s face facts: people — including Democrats! — resent having control taken away. But everyone recognizes the universal truth that people need to be responsible. Even gun owners who have been fighting the laws Democrats advocate to ensure public safety, refer to themselves as “responsible” gun owners.

    We don’t think this needs much extrapolation — it’s actually just basic common sense. We need better Gun Responsibility laws that protect innocent people from potential gun violence while also affording responsible gun owners the protection they feel their guns provide them.

    Kyl just said on the Senate floor that Congress is going to have to get involved with the Presidents open mic comment.
    He says, the President is withholding information from the American people and wants to disarm America by making a deal with the Russians.
    Wow!
    That is not what he said, bit they are really twisting this open mic Thingy.
    And then McCain said this is Obamas etch a sketch moment.
    And seeing how this is the Only coverage the press gives the President, it tarnishes the whole Trip, because nobody(except us) know what he was doing in South Korea.
    My take, the gas price attack is not working, the Suffolk poll came out today with the President up ten on Robney.
    They (the gop)need to keep changing tactics, until they get something.
    Again, the President is aware of this, but should proceed with caution, everything he does will be under a microscope. As, The Republicans are desperate.

      The thing is, except for the 27% dead enders, this country has come to trust PBO when if comes to foreign affairs and diplomacy. This whole “He’s selling us out” tactic won’t work like it would have when the Republicans held all the foreign policy/national security cred.

    Just heard most (missed the first 3-4 minutes) of a discussion about ACA/SC hearing. This was on our local 5:00 news show. I was blown away with the two medical reps they had on. They both said very good things about the ACA, all the positives, especially in terms of reducing health care costs, both in the short and long term. They both indicated they do not think it will be overturned, including the mandate. One guy even made the point that it is patterned after Romney’s plan in MA. Keep in mind this is in very red and rabid right-wing Knoxville.

      The most impressive thing about the rally today at the Supreme Court were all the ‘white coats” that were there. Doctors came from all over the United States to support ACA. They were some of our strongest advocates outside that court today. So your comment falls right in line with what I saw today.

    I agree it wasn’t planned. It will go away, because this week is all about the HCR SCOTUS case. There is no oxygen left for this “gaffe” to make any news.

    Plus it wasn’t anything that would bother anyone but voters who won’t be voting for POTUS anyway and just use any reason to confirm why they don’t like POTUS.

    It’s nothing like the Romney “etch-a-sketch” gaffe because this is one case of “flexibility” but it’s just the truth reasonable people expect that Obama has to get re-elected before he has any idea what he can negotiate with.

    There is no point negotiated some sort of anything when if GOP gets elected, the will probably not want to uphold Obama’s deal anyway.

    The Senate voted 92-4 Monday to begin an election-year floor debate over Democratic legislation to repeal oil industry tax breaks, a plan that’s unlikely to ultimately pass but provides a platform for partisan warfare over gasoline prices.

    The procedural vote advanced Sen. Robert Menendez’s (D-N.J.) plan that would raise billions of dollars by removing incentives for the largest oil-and-gas companies, and also extend several green energy and energy efficiency tax breaks.

    They just want to debate this, not likely to pass!
