        Dear Chips,

        You’re always such an outstanding resource of information, but today you’ve taken it to another level – Olympian, I’d say!!!

        Thank you!

        Thank you Ms Chips-I’m a great cricket fan and this is one of my favorite PBO pics with the cricket LEGEND Brian Charles Lara !
        Pres Obama was such a sport to try out cricket strokes at this Conference of the Americas in Trinidad and endeared himself to all Caribbean people.

        One island has even named a” mountain” (more like a little hill) after President Obama!

    That Eva Longoria is so pretty, isn’t she? Classic beauty. So appreciate all she’s doing for the PBO campaign. She’s a very important voice for our side.

      Eva is rapt as she listens to our President.

      She really is. Whenever I see her on political shows on cable and network stations she is Pro-Obama to her core. She knows the issues like the back of her hand. She’s been speaking to women and Latinos about how Obamacare, the resurgent economy, the repeal of DADT, the auto bailout etc. help them. She’s also been making the Latino community aware of Rubio’s narrow minded warped policies and how detrimental they are

      She’s been A+ as a National Co-Chair for Obama 2012 and now that Desperate Housewives is over, she said she is going to be more than 100% focused on the reelection of President Obama because according to her “this is the most important election of her lifetime. It is the difference between going Forward or Backwards.”

      I’ve read a lot of her supportive comments but I was blown away when I actually heard her on Bill Maher. She wasn’t just good, she was brilliant. I would put her at the very top of surrogates. Her knowledge and how articulate she was was breathtaking.

      Classic listening pose, with the hands clasped in front of the Heart, remember that conversation we had about that last winter, it was so enriching to hear everyone’s views!

    • May 14, 2012 at 9:48 pm

      There’s my Eva!! She is FIERCE for POTUS and a great spokesperson for the campaign. I think she’s going to be very effective with Latino voters. She doesn’t demagogue but argues very rationally and persuasively. LOVE her.

      Hush! I understand how you feel, Auni, having been in this position before. {{Auni}} Of course you didn’t want to be first. 😉 You were just participating to provide a little competition to the winner, I know. In fact, Come, I’ll kick the rock down the road with you if you’d like.

      Auni, I can’t have you feeling that disillusioned about your secondness, so:

        Oh, CC, you noticed that my kicking the rock with Auni wasn’t helping!!! PBO running to join in will definitely help. 😆 😆 YOU can be such a sweetheart, CC, even while yourself mourning MU’s loss! Maybe that blue team will wear itself out by the next round. {{{Chips Chica}}}

    Is Mitt Romney finally paying the cost for repeating debunked lies?



    For weeks Rachel Maddow, Steve Benen, Greg Sargent and various other people with ears have been wondering if Mitt Romney would ever pay a price for repeating lies that had been debunked, again and again.

    It seems to finally have happened. But not the way anyone expected.

    By focusing on repeating lies about President Obama, Mitt was clearly avoiding a more important subject: Mitt Romney.

    Todd just spoke almost dismissively of PBO’s great commencement address at Barnard, calling it “a campaign speech” and trying to spike the gender divide. And then when he talked about Willard’s speech at Liberty, he said he talked about his Mormonism—–no he didn’t!—-a lie! —-and how much he has in common with the evangelicals at that graduation.

    • May 14, 2012 at 6:47 pm

      Propaganda at it’s best! And he does not care! He is very immature!

      Where is Todd talking ?

    • May 14, 2012 at 9:53 pm

      The speech was an incredibly eloquent talk about taking your individual power and using it responsibly. Todd thinks it’s a campaign speech? Was it because everyone was screaming, Yes We Can, and OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA!! And since when is encouraging women to be all that they can be “trying to spike the gender divide”? UGH. Todd and the rest of the media hacks have such biased filters on, it’s ridiculous.

    Ricky, you gotta shave that thing above your lip!

  14. May 14, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    If that poll is true, which it’s not, it’s because of the in the tank reporting that Robney gets.

    I’m gonna brag right now. Finally ordered and just received my Obama iPhone case. It’s the white one with the Obama logo on back. I love it!
    I also ordered two dog bowls (one for food, one for water).
    Made in the USA, baby.

  16. May 14, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    No no, we cannot be talking about Bain.
    So, Robney advisers hit the Phones, Ny Times please release a POLL.
    Viola! News cycle changed a a big thank you.

    We reported recently that the DSCC had reserved air time in Missouri in Sen. Claire McCaskill’s re-election fight, and a source says the total has grown to $4.9 million in reserved time in the fall.

    The increased purchase comes as a new Mellman Group poll showed McCaskill growing her lead over her three rivals in the race.

    McCaskill’s seat is one of several targets for both sides for the fall.

          I’d be more inclined to give that title to the gymnasts, but swimmers and sprinters would definitely come just a couple of sweat drops out of the top spot.

            Dudette. I’m with you. ESPECIALLY male gymnasts. They are strong, but balanced, I would even say elegant.

    The serial bully, from a U.K. web-site OnLine Bully The serial bully:http://www.bullyonline.org/workbully/serial.htm
    Do these characteristics fit anyone we know?
    • is a convincing, practiced liar and when called to account, will make up anything spontaneously to fit their needs at that moment
    • has a Jekyll and Hyde nature – is vile, vicious and vindictive in private, but innocent and charming in front of witnesses; no-one can (or wants to) believe this individual has a vindictive nature – only the current target of the serial bully’s aggression sees both sides; whilst the Jekyll side is described as “charming” and convincing enough to deceive personnel, management and a tribunal, the Hyde side is frequently described as “evil”; Hyde is the real person, Jekyll is an act
    • excels at deception and should never be underestimated in their capacity to deceive
    • uses excessive charm and is always plausible and convincing when peers, superiors or others are present (charm can be used to deceive as well as to cover for lack of empathy)
    • is glib, shallow and superficial with plenty of fine words and lots of form – but there’s no substance
    • is often described as smooth, slippery, slimy, ingratiating, fawning, toadying, obsequious, sycophantic
    • relies on mimicry, repetition and regurgitation to convince others that he or she is both a “normal” human being and a tough dynamic manager, as in extolling the virtues of the latest management fads and pouring forth the accompanying jargon
    • is unusually skilled in being able to anticipate what people want to hear and then saying it plausibly
    • is self-opinionated and displays arrogance, audacity, a superior sense of entitlement and sense of invulnerability and untouchability
    • is a control freak and has a compulsive need to control everyone and everything you say, do, think and believe.
    • displays a compulsive need to criticize whilst simultaneously refusing to value, praise and acknowledge others, their achievements, or their existence
    • refuses to be specific and never gives a straight answer
    • is evasive and has a Houdini-like ability to escape accountability
    • undermines and destroys anyone who the bully perceives to be an adversary, a potential threat, or who can see through the bully’s mask
    • is adept at creating conflict between those who would otherwise collate incriminating information about them
    • is quick to discredit and neutralizes anyone . is also quick to belittle, undermine, denigrate and discredit anyone who calls, attempts to call, or might call the bully to account
    • gains gratification from denying people what they are entitled to
    • is highly manipulative, especially of people’s perceptions and emotions (e.g. guilt)
    • when called upon to share or address the needs and concerns of others, responds with impatience, irritability and aggression
    • is arrogant, haughty, high-handed, and a know-all
    • often has an overwhelming, unhealthy and narcissistic attention-seeking need to portray themselves as a wonderful, kind, caring and compassionate person, in contrast to their behavior and treatment of others; the bully sees nothing wrong with their behavior and chooses to remain oblivious to the discrepancy between how they like to be seen and how they are seen by others
    • is spiritually dead although may loudly profess some religious belief or affiliation
    • convinced of their superiority and has an overbearing belief in their qualities of leadership but cannot distinguish between leadership (maturity, decisiveness, assertiveness, co-operation, trust, integrity) and bullying (immaturity, impulsiveness, aggression, manipulation, distrust, is constantly imposing on others a false reality made up of distortion and fabrication.
    • knows the words but not the song.
