    This was a great event. The First Lady was in her element with the kids and they do love her.

    She’s gorge 🙂 And on the opposite side of gorge, Speaker Orange doesn’t think the Rubio Dream- Lite bill would pass the House. Well color me shocked. But, is this not like the Grand Bargain these half nits in the press keep accusing the Prez of walking away from. Could Boehner have brought his kindergarten caucus along,,,,,me thinks not.


    And one has to wonder how in the HELL do all those big wigs (Newt, McConnell, etc) get together nearly 4 years ago, AND no one in the press writes a story about it. Strange.

      The MSM is an extended arm of the GOP. They protect each other’s interests. And that includes the so-called “left” media.

    No longer any question that the Party of Koch & Norquist intentionally inflicted harm on Americans (and continue to do so) for political purpose and extending financial gain only to the plutocrats as their primary long-term objective.

    More in my TL ….

    #AmericaThisIsNotATest << that is not a joke.

    What a pleasure to see our beautiful FLOTUS’ picture at the top of the page. It was so good for me, because I received an email from Romney’s campaign. I don’t know how I got on that list. The email was the one telling me I could ‘grab a bite with Ann” if I donated $5. I don’t know what I inadvertently clicked on to get that. My stomach hurts!!!

    Washington Capitals forward Joel Ward was the hero of Wednesday night’s Game 7 of the Capitals-Bruins NHL playoff series, but his shining moment was followed by racial epithets posted to Twitter in the hours after the game.

    Ward scored the game-winning goal in overtime to lead the Capitals to a 2-1 victory and eliminate the Bruins from the playoffs.

    Some Twitter users posted reactions that used vulgar terms and racist expressions in reference to Ward, who is black. Several web sites, including Chirpstory and Black Sports Online, collected offensive tweets from around the country, and the reactions have been a talking point on sports radio and the blogosphere.

    Ward told USA Today he was alerted to the comments on the team’s flight home.

    “It doesn’t faze me at all,” Ward said. “We won, and we are moving on. ‘ People are going to say what they want to say.”

    Many of the pages of the Twitter users in question have been removed.

      That’s a redeeming moment instead of twitter pulling the usual first amendment crap. Now only, if the msm blogs do the same, the conversation would be much healthier.

      It’s just awful that we are still dealing with this crap. It is all the talk of the local sports talk radio station here in DC. Sometimes I am very disgusted with some folks that call themselves Americans!

  15. April 26, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    Boner just said that the President owes the American taxpayers 179k per hour fit his recent College tour.
    And he is demanding he pay it back.
    Pun intended here: Boner can suck it!!!

      Ask Boehner if he knows where the Goldengate Bridge is? Tell him to go take a jump. I can not believe we got rid of Nancy Pelosi for that sorry S.O.B.

      I hope he can point to the legal requirement that he thinks the President violated. He should know better than to accuse this Administration of not following the rules. He wants a change, then he can try and get it through Congress. But, he should know that the rest of the Presidents will have to abide by the same rules. He should also explain why he thinks this President doesn’t’ deserve the same treatment as the ones before him??

      I’m beginning to hate these hateful people – and I don’t use that word lightly.

      I watched the video on Blitzer and his round table talking about the repubs use of “putting Pelosi in her place” to gin up their base. I loved Nancy’s response, that she was in her place, voted there by the democratic house!!! 😀 It must be speakeer Pelosi again!

      These idiot pundits and so called journalist, always working to carry GOP water! Pelosi is so hated…her bad Iraq and Aphganistqan policies. Always presenting GOP BS talking points as fact! Geeze! We have go to do better than this! I fear for our survival as a free people! There is much work to be done folks for 2012 and beyond. I fear I cannot stop being engaged even after “my president” serves 4 more for 44!

      We could apply those adjectives to any of Romney’s policies. They’re bad for America and the world.

    can someone remind the crying orange man this:

    PBO will payback the money spent on his college tours as soon as the other 43 former Presidents (or their estates) have refunded their transportation and security expenses to America.

    why stop your stupid demands on PBO – just do the right thing and make similar demands from George Washington and follow the history to 44

      I once read a wonderful book about that very subject — “George Washington’s Expense Account.” When taking the command of the revolutionary army, Washington very nobly refused to take a salary. “Expenses only,” he said.
      But his expenses were extraordinary. He did better that way than he would have taking a salary. It was a very funny book — informative, too. Also. (Available for a song from Abebooks.)

        thanks for that information – I will check it out. May be you can send your message here to the Team Obama folks in Chicago and the communications people can use the content to think of some snappy retorts to this foolishness because you and I know that this is not the last time we are hearing this from these cry babies. they gop simply cannot handle the people who make up and support Team Obama

    Sully on Rove’s desperate attack ad:

    Romney is squarer than Obama is cool. That has its problems as well. My view, for what it’s worth, is that the more personal and vicious the mockery of Obama in this campaign, the better Obama will do. People in the middle like him. They may have issues with his presidency, but they like him. It’s political malpractice to forget that.

    If Nancy Pelosi were still speaker of the House we would have had someone to work with this President. Someone who would have put the struggling people first, this economy first, instead we let some sorry S.O.B. become speaker who have no guts to control his caucas, and who promise he would focus on jobs, jobs, jobs. He lied, John Boehner haven;’t don’t a darn thing about jobs. First let’s re-elect President Obama, then give the House back to the Democrats, and keep the Senate Democratic.
