    Had a crazy weekend and did not get to congratulate Chipsticks on reaching 10 million hits. The first time I heard of TOD was when BWD was reminding her peeps to go congratulate Chipsticks on 1 million hits. Time flies by fast when you’re having fun! Digging in my wallet now for the $10 celebration donation. Just watched the President speaking in Joplin. I don’t know how anyone can fail to see what a beautiful soul he is.
    Thank you Chipsticks.

      DF, Booker is getting pathetic. He did the damage and his opinion or non opinion no longer matters. That he would need the president to explain anything so obvious tells me he’s either stupid or lying. I don’t think he’s stupid. He knew and he did it deliberately.

        He’s certainly lost his shine. He doesn’t even look the same to me today as he did four or five days ago. It reminds me a bit of the heartbreaking disappointment I felt after Colin Powell testified about Iraq’s having WMDs with ridiculous “evidence” that turned out, almost as he was speaking, to be absolutely false.Made a fool of himself on the world stage. Though Cory Booker was never another Colin Powell.

    Krugman: Romney’s business experience wouldn’t help him as president [Video accompanies article]
    http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/05/21/krugman-romneys-business-experience-wouldnt-help-him-as-president/

    Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman took aim at one of Mitt Romney’s main talking points on Monday, claiming that his experience as a businessman would not help him as president.

    “Yes, he made a lot of money. He made a lot of money in ways that were often not good for workers,” he said on The War Room with Jennifer Granholm.

    “And it is also totally important to point out, as President Obama just did, what a President needs to do is not what you need to do if you’re trying to make a bunch of money for private equity for investors.”

    Krugman, a Keynesian economist, said the United States should be spending more money now rather than trying to slash its budget to make up for lost revenue. The country should reduce the deficit once it had a stable economy.

    “Slashing spending at times like these is a terrible thing, it makes the economy much much worse,” he explained.

    “I think the way to phrase it is, this is not a stimulus — although it is — but as a ‘we need those school teachers, we need those fire fighters, we need those police officers.’ We are starving essential public services. There are potholes in our roads.”

    The Health and Human Services Department has signed a $20 million contract with a public-relations firm to highlight part of the Affordable Care Act.

    The new, multimedia ad campaign is designed to educate the public about how to stay healthy and prevent illnesses, an HHS official said.

    The campaign was mandated by the Affordable Care Act and must describe the importance of prevention while also explaining preventive benefits provided by the healthcare law. The law makes many preventive services available without a co-pay or deductible, and provides new preventive benefits to Medicare patients.

    The PR firm Porter Novelli won the contract after a competitive bidding process. The $20 million contract was first reported by PR Week. Porter Novelli did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    The Senate confirmed Paul J. Watford for the 9th Circuit court in California on Monday.

    The vote was 61 to 34.

    Earlier in the day Senate Majority vitiated cloture on Watford’s nomination so the chamber could hold a roll-call vote.

    Throughout debate on the nominee, Democrats repeatedly praised Watford.

    “He shouldn’t be filibustered, he shouldn’t require cloture. He’s a nominee with impeccable legal qualifications,” Sen. Patrick Leahy (I-Vt.) said ahead of the vote.

    NAACP Leader Benjamin Jealous chokes up over NAACP support of gay marriage.

    http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/05/21/naacp-president-chokes-up-over-support-for-marriage-equality/

    …“I’ve spoken to many clergy who feel differently, different sides, different theologies, different doctrines. All are very clear that if this is a difference, it is a difference, not a division. If this is a contrast, it is a contrast, not a conflict.”…

    “You have to excuse me,” Jealous explained, his voice trembling. “I’m a bit moved. My parents own marriage was against the law at the time and they had to return here to Baltimore after getting married in Washington, D.C. And the procession back was mistaken for a funeral procession because it was so quixotic to people to see all these cars with these headlights on, having to go from one city all the way to the next just so they could have a party after they got married in their own home. This is an important day.”

    OVERNIGHT ENERGY: Interior forum to lay groundwork for blowout-prevention rules

    By Ben Geman and Andrew Restuccia
    State of play: Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is gathering experts Tuesday to lay the groundwork for the next wave of rules aimed at improving devices to prevent the kind of catastrophic deep-sea blowout that caused the 2010 BP oil spill.

    Salazar and top lieutenants will hold a daylong forum at Interior headquarters to solicit input on ways to ensure that underwater blowout preventers — the supposedly fail-safe device that failed to stop BP’s runaway Macondo well — do their job.

    Interior’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement will host the forum, which is titled, “Technical Forum on Next-Generation Blowout Preventer (BOP) and Control Systems Technology, Management and Regulation.”

    Interior — which quickly issued beefed-up safety rules in the wake of the BP spill — is emphasizing that it’s taking a deliberate approach with the next batch of safety rules and the upgraded blowout standards.

(and boy did he cram, with just 3-4 hours of sleep everyday in the last month). We will be going out in another 3 hours for the celebratory dinner.

Kudos to your son.

    President Obama’s reelection campaign is taking strategic advice from former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, whom one operative described as the “Democratic Party’s Karl Rove.”

    Emanuel, a friend of both campaign manager Jim Messina and senior strategist and fellow Chicagoan David Axelrod, periodically weighs in “very clearly” on what the campaign should be doing, a Democratic official said.

      Florida grassroots is doing a wonderful job. It will be close but I think we have a real shot at pulling this state off again in November.

      The state that worries me is NC. I read earlier this year the registered Dems have declined in NC so they have a lot of ground to makeup there. We won that state in 2008 by the smallest of margins. I think it was about 4000 votes.

        Glad to see that the O -team has doubled-down on the Bain attacks. Superpac has released a new ad. To hell with Booker and Rendell.

        HEADLINE: Pro-Obama Super PAC Uses Gingrich, Perry To Go After Romney’s Bain Record

        // The pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action has created a new web video which uses attacks from Mitt Romney’s rivals during the Republican primary to attack Romney’s record at Bain Capital. “Somebody who’s very wealthy comes in, takes over your company, takes out all the cash, and leaves behind the unemployment,” Newt Gingrich says in one clip used in the video. “I think that’s not a model we want to advocate, and I don’t think any conservative wants to get caught defending that kind of model.”

        Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman makes an appearance, saying “Governor Romney enjoys firing people. I enjoy creating jobs.” Texas Gov. Rick Perry is also featured prominently in the video, where he says “There is something fundamentally wrong when getting rich off failure and sticking it to someone else is how you do your business.”

        Also included is a clip of Sarah Palin saying it was legitimate to ask Romney for proof of his claim to have created 100,000 jobs while at Bain. //

    Obama has enthusiasm edge in new poll
    By DONOVAN SLACK | 5/22/12 6:58 AM EDT
    A new Washington Post/ABC News poll found 93 percent of Obama supporters are enthusiastic about voting for him, compared to 75 percent of Mitt Romney’s supporters who are enthusiastic about casting ballots for him.

    Of Obama’s supporters, 51 percent are very enthusiastic, while 26 percent of Romney’s are very enthusiastic.

    The numbers are similar to those for Obama and McCain at this point in the 2008 race, with Obama’s enthusiasm at 91 percent and McCain’s at 74 percent.

    The new poll, which found Obama leading 49-46 if the election were held today, also measured voters’ feelings about Romney’s Bain experience with some surprising results.

    When asked about his work “buying and restructuring companies,” voters were split with 21 percent saying it was a major reason to vote for him and 21 percent saying is was a major reason to vote against him. More than half — 54 percent — said it wasn’t a factor at all.

    The poll surveyed a random sample of 1,004 adults between May 17 and 20. It has a argin of error of +/- 3.5 percent.

      I am so sick of these “Armchair Campaign Managers” who sit on their perches in tv studios and act like they have all the answers. There’s a reason why President Obama is in the White House and they are flapping their gums as know-it all guests on some cable show. I rarely hear Ed Rendell say anything positive about PBO. As far as I am concerned Ed can “talk to the hand”.

          In fact,IMO apart from selfishness it shows a certain ignorance of the political process, OR a heartlessness re possible outcome! They’ve got theirs so they can live with the rest of us possibly not getting ours.

    Before President Obama won and took over the leadership of the Democratic Party, many in the leadership positions and in the pipelines were becoming more and more greedy about Wall Street cash.

    In fact because they were fanatically seeking the support of huge multinationals they sold their souls and made the Dems Party almost indistinguishable from the gop. People found it credible to say “both parties are the same”

    Today, you can see clearly the difference between Dems and the gop and it is largely thanks to PBO.

    Now that PBO’s leadership team and personal decency have brought back moral clarity with a focus on ordinary people as the core of the Dem Party, the old guard does not like it – I am talking about you ed rendell and your big envious mouth, yes you harold ford etc.

    Yes, we can now see the cockroaches in the Dems coming out because the President Obama light is flushing them out! I despise these corrupt dems almost as much as I do the right wingers

      Well said Linda, President Obama refuses to play this game. When President Obama wanted to bring Hilary Clinton on board as SOS, one of the conditions was that Bill had to list all of his benefactors, although Bill did it he was none to happy to do it. Most of the old guard couldn’t find a corporation to sell their souls too quick enough once President Obama became the leader of the party. Not only are the roaches jumping ship, they don’t care who comes to save them.

    I see what is happening here. Robney is using NBC and they have Bought some Democrats, as a response to the Bain attacks.
    I see you Bain, I know what you are up to.

    I see that #IStandWithObama is still top-trending topic on Twitter 🙂 Hope it’s also the top trend at the ballot box on November 6.

    lets face it people, the reason that the beltway punditry, the MSM , and the politicos are ALL freaking out about the bain/romney ads is because they are very effective

    Furthermore, these bain ads also point out th general hypocrisy that permeates the media and politics and how all feed off big money from entities such as bain. So when the ad hits mitt, it hits them too and this makes them lash out

      I am just loving the fact that the campaign is doubling down, nay trebling down as of today, with these let’s expose mitt ads. The pundtwits can GFT.

      GCL, An absolutely brilliant observation.

      In essence, the ads have blown a big hole in the media firewall. The facts are escaping and getting to the voters who need this information. Just imagine the number of people who are seeing those ads and saying “Gee, I didn’t know that”. What would Mitt Romney do as president. That could be me. The ads have hit a nerve and it’s freaking out the Romney campaign and the media. Enter the Democratic Party circular firing squad of Booker and Rendell to piss all over the messaging. It’s infuriating.

      Not only that, but NBC and Bain own the Weather Channel.

      I thought Powell was a big advocate of education. Does he know that Mitt want to cut back the education department? Being a good man and having policies that benefit only the wealthy are two different things. Does he know that Williard think the Ryan budget is “marvelous”.

    Powell can vote for whomever he wants to, I just hope he doesn’t come back later and says he didn’t know Willard would turn out the way he did. Just like Powell did when he went before the United Nations and sold us a stack of lies about Iraq.

      And this we must not forget. This is why they work so hard to suppress our right to vote. There are more of us than them.

    Powell served in Vietnam while Mittens was in France trying to decide what wine to drink with his fish, and now he’s considering voting for this guy?

    Hello Team,

    Can we send tweets and other messages to Team Obama, the DNC and other PBO-supporters to keep the Bain/Romney commercials coming.

    here is my draft: The workers Romney fired at Bain speak for me; Please keep the focus on this betrayal and greed
