    Encouraging everyone, especially these folk, to visit TOD and read HZ’s exceptional comment posted yesterday evening …

    Substantively, Biden refuted all the right-wing criticisms (except one, which I’ll get to) of the administration on Iran, the Middle East, Russia, Poland, Libya. He took them on directly and pointedly and said: They are either lying or . . . well, there is no “or”; they’re lying. He gave evidence—of mutual security arrangements with Israel, for example, and the quiet strides that have been made in the Russian “reset.” The kinds of things that never make the papers or the shout-fests but that are real and meaningful. On each point, he quoted Mitt Romney, who said for example that getting bin Laden wasn’t that important, and who (shocker here) has flip-flopped on other matters, like Afghanistan.

    Without comment.


    Time to put a name with the man at the center of the Secret Service scandal. Arthur Huntington has been identified as the agent who refused to pay a prostitute in Colombia, and then sparked a sweeping investigation that’s led to the discipline and firings of 12 Secret Service agents. The agent, who lives in Saverna Park, Md., is a married father of two whose wife leads Bible study in the neighborhood. In light of the scandal, the Secret Service has created new rules forbidding all foreigners but hotel staff in agents’ rooms and barring them from visiting “seedy establishments.”

      I’m not sure why they’re releasing all his personal information. As a Secret Service agent, he still had access to secured information, so isn’t it dangerous to release his name and home town – including the number of children, etc.?

        The guy does not hold elected office. I understand what he did was wrong, as a married man, and also reflected poorly on the United States–but this is tabloid journalism at is finest/worst. This couple has now put their house up and sale. Imagine, if everyone who cheated on their spouse, were outed by CNN. I’m not surprised…when Piers Morgan still holds a job at CNN after his name being batted around in the phone hacking scandal—I can’t really say I’m surprised.

          Yeah – the poor quality and ethical standards of journalism today is shocking! They don’t even stop to think of the ramifications of their actions to score a sensational point – and then they move on to the next victim tomorrow.

          It’s stuff like this that really makes you value the high standard to which President Obama and his people have held themselves. The media (and GOP) are like vultures. They pounce on anything and never hold themselves accountable. This is why Romney’s whining at any criticism or fact checking sent in his direction is ultra-pathetic. He won’t stand up to the rigors of the Presidency – or even just the Presidential campaign. I heard someone this morning say that Romney’s been playing in the AAA league, and now he’s in the major leagues.

    Bringing this over from the last thread because before I finished it, you had all moved on. Just too slow today.

    Well today I joined the Harrisburg, PA segment of the national ‘ war on women march’ and it was great, even though the weather was cold and blustery. Every speech, every sign was about VOTING to get Republicans out of the state house and the Congress. Everybody was on point with that one central message and there were tons of Obama buttons. A state democratic senator excoriated Romney for telling a young woman that the poor could just shop around for health care once Republicans succeed in defunding Planned Parenthood. The anti-Romney boos were deafening as they were anytime Boehner’s name was mentioned. Gov Corbett is not going to live down his ‘Close Your Eyes’ statement any time soon and it’s going to haunt him into 2014, I’m happy to say. One of the speakers said that women actually make up 54 percent of the potential electorate and if they all come out and vote in a united effort, they can’t be stopped. I like the fact that people weren’t just expressing rage and anger, they were focusing on what needs to happen in November and when asked if they were fired up, the response was a huge YES. Women are royally outraged by the demeaning, ugly, intrusion legislation that’s being passed in this country and as the list of laws was read off from state to state, it all looked like a deliberate onslaught against our rights as full human beings. The 31 male R’s who voted no to the Violence Against Women Act were booed and I hope that act of cowardice lives to haunt them all their days. Our job is to harness this energy–make sure everyone is registered, make sure they focus on the enemy and make sure they get out to vote. As someone said today, we saw what happened in 2010, so NO EXCUSES for not voting in 2012.

      I hope you don’t mind but I pasted this comment of yours with credit to you over at POU because people were asking for more eye witness reports & this was so good. My daughters attended a rally in CO but I won’t get their impressions until tomorrow. Sis & I were committed to voter registration today so we could not attend anything here. If I get info I will share.

    A poll conducted for the North Dakota Democratic Party gives Democrat Heidi Heitkamp a 5-point lead in the state’s Senate race.

    Heitkamp takes 49 percent in the poll, compared with 44 percent for Republican Rick Berg. That’s a small gain from December, when the two candidates were within one point of each other.

    That lead for Heitkamp is in spite of negative views of the Democratic Party within the state: 48 percent of those surveyed had an unfavorable view of the Democrats, compared with just 34 percent who approve. Those numbers are practically flipped for the Republican Party: 53 percent viewed Republicans favorably, compared with 31 who viewed them unfavorably.

    On the presidential level, Mitt Romney has a big advantage over President Obama: 51 percent of those surveyed said they’d choose Romney, compared to 32 percent who chose Obama. And a full 62 percent said they think the country is headed in the wrong direction, another figure that’s not great news for Obama.

        Not that important at this stage of the game, Jovie. We already know that 43% of the country was willing to vote for McCain and Palin, so they’re already suspect. Plus, enough people voted for Republicans in 2010 after seeing them actively work to obstruct any effort to recover from the recession they caused. Some states are going to be fully Republican states, despite evidence that they’re voting against their interests. There are just some states that will get the message, but will be serving a different purpose and a different master. We have to focus on the states we can win, and reaching out to people in our own networks who may be swayed by information they might not have seen before.

      ovie what exactly is you or (Emily Schulthesis) point in posting this drivel about “not great news for Obama?” Was North Dakota ever an important state for PBO or the Democratic Party? Furthermore, why should what N.Dakotans think carry more weight than the fact that Obama leads Mitt Romney in 16 out of 18 national polls, with wide margins among key groups including Women, Hispanic, Jews, Youth, Blacks and LGBT?

      I think the point of this article really SHOULD be that for a RED state like North Dakota (which PBO doesn’t expect to win nor is he trying to win), it’s highly interesting that a DEM is leading the Repub in by 5 points the state senate.

    It is what it is and they are never going to escape the reality that, if President Obama hadn’t been as briliant as he is, they would have taken America through a Great Depression to not only ensure President Obama’s defeat, but crush the opportunity for anyone other than a white male #KOCHSTER to occupy the White House. For them the bonus of a Depression would have been their ability to end Medicare and raid the SS Trust fund, which we now know they will do if they get the chance because those are among the consequences of the Ryan-Romney budget plan. And, perpetual war would have been their gig.

    So, when is the MSM going to stat pointing out the facts that Businessman Romney was an utter failure in Massachusetts. If the MSM is going to keep crowing about how successful he was as a businessman, then pray tell, why didn’t those qualities translate in Massachusetts. He worked at Bain in the 90s, he became governor in 02.

    If the MSM is going to keep crowing about how Romney is such a turn around artist because he “rescued the winter games”, then pray tell, why was Massachusetts 47th in job creation during Romney’s term?

    “Romney took office during an economic uptick. Massachusetts had a net job growth of 1.4 percent under Romney. However, that was far slower growth than the national average of 5.3 percent” source: http://www.factcheck.org/2012/01/romneys-shaky-job-claims/

    Stick that in your fact lunch box Mark Knoller.

    I had to go check the article

    One of Mitt Romney’s top advisers said Saturday that President Obama’s decision to bailout Chrysler and General Motors was actually Romney’s idea.

    “[Romney’s] position on the bailout was exactly what President Obama followed. I know it infuriates them to hear that,” Eric Fehrnstrom, senior adviser to the Romney campaign, said.

    “The only economic success that President Obama has had is because he followed Mitt Romney’s advice.”

    I don’t even know what to say.

    Wow…just wow,….
