    congrats on 1st, PFWHI! Bringing my morning greeting over from the last thread.

    Hiddee, Hidedee, Ho, Ho, Ho, O’s!!!!! A stellar getting up day in the TOD domain!!! So, we’re back in 2008 again? Well, I say, bring it oooonnnn, you idjits! PBO likability rating is through the roof, even with independents. Do they actually think this is a winning strategy?

    Too bad ol’ MoMoney can’t put these geniuses back into the bottle, but he knew they were snakes when he brought them in.

      If they thought they saw a lot of Black people in ’08…no amount of voter suppression strategies will keep “The Blacks” from voting in 2012…

      In 2008 59% thought the media over-covered the Rev Wright story and were TIRED of hearing about it. And that’s not just “The Blacks.”

      Forgot to add a Happy Happy birthday to Tally. My dad was a Taurus, Think of a bull on a rampage, who would stop mid-rant, rage, and ravage to give you the shirt off of his back, or help anyone at anytime, even at his own sacrifice.

      Then Mormonism is on the table. I’m somewhat serious about this. I would like to keep religion out of campaigns, but when there is a real danger of turning this country into a theocracy, we need to know what this man believes. He has personally inserted religion into the campaign.

    I am SO happy to see that my O Family kept their heads despite the post on the last thread. I was scared to read the comments because I thought I would be greeted by worry or anxiety. NOT SO! :mrgreen: No chicken-littling going on, just appropriate ridicule and resolve. YAY! 😛

    You guys are awesome. Have a wonderful day, everybody!

    And I can’t resist…..

    Carrying this over from end of last thread. It’s not back to their past! Hope that’s ok.

    WTF! What’s up w/ these dickheads and their use of “extremely?”:

    “The group suggested hiring as a spokesman an “extremely literate conservative African-American” who can argue that Mr. Obama misled the nation by presenting himself as what the proposal calls a ‘metrosexual, black Abe Lincoln.’”

    And they just had to put in some form of “sex” in there too, huh? Dingbat Freaks!

    OK, feeling better now! Here are some comments from that NYT article, there were lots of boycotts & rickets disease too!

    Nymom; New York:

    I find it rich that Mr. Ricketts’ team has registered the domain name ‘Character Matters’. In comparison to them, Obama is oozing character. Yes, Mr. Ricketts, character DOES matter. You and your people need to learn a lot about it before you go registering domain names in character’s name.

    People like Ricketts and his ilk should feel shame for their lack of character. But alas, they are so far gone in their delusions that someone could tell them Obama is a secret spy from Mars, and they would be foaming at the mouth, ready to spend a million dollars on an ad telling gullible masses as much. Who with any amount of character behaves in such a manner?

    Ultimately, what I disdain most about these GOP superpacs is the great damage they do to our country. They bring political discourse into the gutter. Instead of focusing on SOLUTIONS to problems, they just talk about who they don’t like. That accomplishes nothing. Alas, aside from whining and complaining, I don’t see the GOP has much to offer. Simply saying “cut spending” is meaningless unless you say what you want to cut. But they can’t do that because then the poor middle class they want to screw over will realize it is they who will suffer if the GOP is elected.

    Carolyn; St. Petersburg, FL:

    10 mil, and this is the best they can come up with? Yawn. I have my list of grievences with President Obama, but the alternative scares the living daylights out of me! And lest we forget about the congressional elections come November – the republicans are not a ‘party’ anymore, they’re an insane asylum.

    EnoughisPlenty; Planet Earth:

    Bad enough that “rickets” is a degenerative bone disease in children due to a vitamin D deficiency. I’ve now learned that it is an insidious disease of bloated billionaires desiring to be political puppeteers.

    I applaud journalists for continuing to expose these super-pacs for what they are, brain children of our less-than-supreme court.

    Kona030; HI:

    I make it a point to NEVER watch an anti-Obama ad…I absolutely never watch FOX Noise….Even when I’m watching MSNBC and they get ready to show a slip from a FOX Noise show, or anti-Obama ad, i will change the channel for a few seconds/minute…I encourage everyone to do the same – tune out ALL right wing garbage, donate to the Obama campaign, and vote for Obama on 11/6 and keep this fine person and president in office another 4 years…

    Ken Goldberg; DeLand, Florida:

    Bad case of the ricketts. Need to go to the doctor.

          May 17, 2012 at 11:46 am

          I don’t even understand what kind of funky mind would string these four words together. “Metrosexual black Abe Lincoln.” WTF does it even mean? LOL!

            May 17, 2012 at 12:41 pm

            Lawd, they are a good example of why education is so critical! [Urban Dictionary definition of dickhead: a person who is an idiot and shows it all too well.] Yup! They were trying to slur POTUS.

            Let me take a stab at translating their dickheadedness: “Metrosexual” must be a derogatory term since metro is urban = non-whites. Sexual must be deviant behavior since their thought processes are below their belts, and they frequently act them out. Black: well we all know where they stand on race. Abe Lincoln: in today’s Repub. party, he’s suspect — not one of them, must be a socialist, mooslim-loving, where’s his birth certificate, etc.

            WTF indeed! Enough stand-up comedy material!

    MoMoney releases statement on plan to use Wright ads:

    ‘we repudiate any efforts to use character assassination, however, PBO is asking for it, cause he said bad things about Mitt first.’

    Poor Shmitt, me thinks he won’t be able to stop this snowball from gaining speed and momentum. They’ve unleashed the AA community and we aren’t gonna let them dis our guy with some old quilt by association bs. Gee, and to think they almost had us divided with the marriage equality stuff. Nothing like grabbing defeat out of the jaws of victory. Maybe they’re really trying to sabotage the guy.

          i wish people would take a different tack with republicans. we should be doing reverse psychology and encouraging them to keep revealing their true natures and having them pump up rev. wright and sarah palin and so on as much as possible. so a better response from us and charles blow would be, “oh no. this whole rev. wright thing is going to sink our campaign!” instead of telling them the truth that we’re not worried about it and actually helps us. make them double-down on the stupid!

  23. May 17, 2012 at 10:34 am

    As someone who studies and teaches leadership for a living, I am struck by the contrast between the hateful and negative campaign by the GOP and the daily tweets and videos coming from the Obama campaign – characterized by inclusiveness, positiveness, an uplifting “you can do it” message, a vision of a bright future, outreach to all…and on and on.

    On the basis of this alone, our president ranks as a great leader – not to mention all his accomplishments in the face of unrelenting obstructionism.

      yes, the republicans biggest month by far, and still lower than what president obama raised in the same month, despite him not even officially campaigning yet and no big fundraising initiatives in the period. very encouraging considering the last several decades democrats used to get clobbered with these numbers. now with president obama we dominate.

    Of all the fertile ground supposedly there is to attack President Obama on, the Romney campaign is going to play the Rev. Jeremiah Wright card? What happened to attacking President Obama on the economy, or foreign policy, or the auto industry? So now these clowns want to challenge a community organizer to a street fight, good luck with that.

    // Donna Summer — the Queen of Disco — died this morning after a battle with cancer … TMZ has learned. We’re told Summer was in Florida at the time of her death. She was 63-years-old.
