The Enthusiasm Gap…..

****

A part of me died tonight: the Russian Grannies only finished second in the Eurovision Song Contest, behind Sweden. 😥

I’ll never recover.

I just love your relentless focus on exposing the bad faith and lies of both the mainstream media and the lunatic right wingers who have taken over the Republican party. I hope you keep your hard hitting tweets coming. American people deserve to know the TRUTH!

      GGail, today was tough: a family member asked me which I wanted most: the Russian Grannies to win the Eurovision, or PBO to win a second term. I insisted that I wanted both, but was told I could only have one. So, I said ‘PBO: second term’. And I now I feel morally responsible for the Grannies finishing second, as Willard will do in December. My soul is tortured.

        ‘I now I feel morally responsible for the Grannies finishing second’

        😀 😀 Don’t . Think of it this way; they had a great time throughout and the shock of winning might have been too great for one or the other of them. In addition, you’ve cemented the fact that Willard will be second and that will have a longer lasting impact on more lives! 😀 Feel better now?

        I have to agree with you Nathkatun7. But moreover, I would venture to say that the current VP and President are two of the utmost outstanding and impressive partnership this nation has produced in its history — especially their two wives! And that is no fly-by-night statement.

        Just my perception here, but only a true void of political knowledge and an inability to correctly discern their own long term “interest” would cause the (s)electors not to keep these first-rate duo in office for another term.

    Forgot to mention another PBO moment from Zach Wahl’s book reading tonight – during the Q & A part, someone asked Zach and his two moms how they felt when PBO declared his support of same sex marriage. Our cousin Jackie (the short mom) said she cried and was so proud of PBO. Dr. Terri (the tall mom) also said she cried and thought there had been noticeable change since then. We have SSM here in Iowa, so they are ahead of other SSM couples elsewhere – but thought society was moving a little faster in support.

    The following is a quote from an article desertflower mentioned in the previous thread:

    “It is sad to hear “disappointed” supporters wax naively about the President’s failures like political professionals who know everything about foreign policy, legislative bargaining and the government budgetary process. More often than not, I find they’re armed with little more than talking points, an entrenched ideology, reflections of an impossible ideal that borders close to God-like or are just plain old racists.

    As I’ve watched President Obama labor against impossible odds, one thing became obvious to me, I would cast my vote for him in 2012 because his presidency calls upon all the ugliness that this nation needs to face.”

    In previous threads, I’ve commented, as have others, that 6 Nov 2012 is really the day we begin to close the chapter that has remained open since 1865. President Obama has accelerated the process of closure and his re-election will definitely help the Republic arc ever quicker toward its greater cause of protecting and cherishing the inalienable rights of every person.

    The link to the essay, penned by someone who did not vote for President Obama in 2008 but will on 6 Nov 2012:

        We close that chapter on 6 Nov 2012, and begin a new one in which each American citizen is honored for precisely one reason – they are an American Citizen. And, each other person on this planet is honored because they are each a member of our common humanity.

    Poor, poor Wh Press Pool-

    Obama leaves press pool behind after day of golf
    By JENNIFER EPSTEIN | 5/26/12 10:15 PM EDT
    President Obama departed Joint Base Andrews following a round of golf Saturday afternoon, but the press pool tracking his every movement got left behind as the president headed back to the White House.

    The vans carrying the reporters and photographers who rotate through following the president are generally at the tail end of his motorcade but, on Saturday, they were about 10 minutes behind Obama’s car.

    The protective pool, as it’s sometimes called, is meant to follow the president as he moves from place to place, to convey news to other journalists and to, in the case of catastrophe, convey details of what went wrong independent of the White House.

    On Saturday, the pool was told that Obama arrived back at the White House at 5:58 p.m. and entered the residence. But, since the pool didn’t get back to the White House until 6:13, they couldn’t independently report that.

    The White House hasn’t yet offered an on-the-record explanation of the incident.

    Earlier this year, some of members of the pool didn’t get to the White House in time to join the president’s motorcade to a weekend morning basketball game. In that instance, the White House press list received an e-mail at 8:16 a.m. alerting the pool to be at the White House at 8:15, earlier than initially scheduled. Then, though, some journalists were already at the White House and were able to follow the president to the game.

    The full pool was last left behind in April 2010 when Obama left the White House for a daughter’s soccer game two hours before the press corps had been asked to gather.

  23. May 26, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    President Barack Obama hits Chicago next Friday for a series of high dollar fund-raisers at the Chicago Cultural Center and private dinners and, I’m told, he will be spending the night.
    Obama fund-raiser Jordan Kaplan–with the Obama political fund-raising operation since Obama was an Illinois Senator–is handling the events. This may be Obama’s last big fund-raising visit for awhile.
    Obama was last in Chicago a few days ago–for the May 20-21 NATO Summit. That was his 12th trip back to his adopted home since becoming president.
    The contribution sliding scale for the Chicago Cultural Center reception is $1,000 to $15,000 per-person to host. The private dinner at the home of Tracey and Chaka Patterson donation is $35,800 per-person or $71,600 for a couple.

I could not believe she said that, Romney base don’t even like or trust him, what enthusiam do Romney have. These media folks like her, Todd, Tapper, Henry, Knoller, Gregory, is just nauseating, plus they flat out lie. When poll numbers look good for Obama they hardly mention it, when things don’t look so good for him that is all they talk about over and over and over.

      Thanks amk for sharing this. This is an absolutely delicious tweet! May be Sharon could have added the Cayman Islands to Switzerland when it comes to where millions of Romney’s money are located. By the way, this is the same Romney whose campaign slogan is: “Believe in America.” Somebody should remind Willard “Mitt” Romney to put his money where his mouth is. How in the world can Willard claim to “Believe in America” while at the same time he is sending jobs overseas in order to maximize profit? How in the world can I trust a man who claims to “Believe in America,” yet puts large chunks of his money –money he made in America– into foreign banks so as to avoid paying taxes like the rest of us schmucks?

      I pray and hope that the vast majority of Americans will begin to see through the lies peddled by Willard, the GOP, and their unethical enablers in the so called mainstream media.

    Thank you so much Chipsticks for this magnificent video! The only way we will be able to defeat the right wing machine, aided by the billionaire/ millionaire benefactors, as well as the unethical mainstream media, is to use every means necessary, which include: disseminating factual information that exposes the GOP lies, grass roots organizing and fund raising, GOTV on election days; but also using humor, satire, ridicule and mockery shed light to the absurdity of the GOP and its unethical media enablers. The mainstream media should be especially derided for promoting some of the most blatant lies intended to shore up Mitt Romney and the Republican party. Personally, I have yet to see any of lack of enthuses at any of President Obama’s appearances before ordinary folks, like the folks in in Iowa. So far as I can tell by what I see, not only are adults enthusiastic, but even the babes, (who probably will never get a chance to vote for President Obama) are enthused!

    Yes, Chips, I am one of the people who will continue to “believe (my) eyes and “not the media lies.” But then again, I am at the age where I am not easily fooled or intimidated.

    I just finish reading USA Today talk about the First Lady and the girls at Beyonce concert last evening. They said they all seem to be enjoying themselves, the girls were even singing to a old classic “Love On Top”. FLOTUS got a loud cheer as she made her way to her seat, as loud as when Beyonce came on stage. Said someone yell this is history, others took pictures. From what I read sound like a good time was had by the Obama women.

    Paul Krugman Destroys Every Republican Argument for Austerity

    By: Jason Easley

    ——————————–

    Paul Krugman shattered the right wing argument by pointing out that cutting spending is not going to encourage consumers and corporations to spend money. The whole basis of the conservative argument is that the debt causes uncertainty, and the economy will grow once the uncertainty is removed, but federal debt has nothing to do with creating consumer demand. The average American isn’t holding off on purchases because they are concerned about the federal deficit. They aren’t buying because they are using their cash to subsist and pay off debt.

    Krugman had history and facts. Laffer had theories, and the facts tell us that if we want to jump start this economy, the government has to spend more.

    There are not many programs on television that could host such an interesting discussion between two economists. In the confrontational world of cable news, two economists respectfully discussing contrasting economic theory would never make it on to the air. Bill Maher gave viewers a real treat, but when you separate the facts from the theories, it is clear that a full blown austerity program would be a disaster for the U.S. economy.

    Women Are the Key to Restoring Our Political Sanity

    By: Dennis S

    ——————————

    Now, for something that needs to be said as primary season comes close to an end and the real politicking begins in earnest. Women are going to save the country. Virtually all polls predict a larger female turnout than male. That’s the best news since Tom DeLay’s departure from the House on his way (someday) to prison.

    Hopefully, the 2012 women’s vote will keep the doors closed to the new breed of right-wing gridlock parvenus who came to prominence in gaining the House majority in 2010, virtually bringing that body to a halt and handing up an endless string of the nuttiest and most insensitive legislation in the 112th congress that will most likely never be duplicated.

    For the sake of the nation, I’d prefer that the male gentry spend November 6th from about 7 AM to 7 PM hunting squirrels, checking out their favorite porn sites, working at jobs that pay more than women working the exact same jobs, listening to their favorite oxy-pumped radio talker or arguing sports at their favorite corner bar while hustling the waitress. That will leave the voting field open to women.

    COMMON CAUSE LAWSUIT

    “Fix The Filibuster”

    —————————–

    The Senate’s filibuster rule (Rule XXII) was designed to encourage full and careful debate, preventing the majority from steamrolling bills into law. In practice, the rule allows a minority – just 41 of the 100 senators — to stifle debate, not just slowing down the majority but blocking it altogether.

    Once a rarely used maneuver to allow extended debate, the filibuster is now routinely used to block debate on hundreds of critical issues and nominations. Federal action on the major issues of the day – from tackling the student loan debt crisis, to revitalizing the economy, to requiring disclosure of campaign spending and filling court vacancies – being held up in the U.S. Senate by a filibuster rule that is unconstitutional and was never contemplated by the nation’s founders.

    Common Cause believes filibuster abuse is a big reason why most Americans are frustrated with Congress and believe that the “government no longer works” for average citizens. Common Cause has filed a lawsuit charging that the Senate’s filibuster rule violates the core American principle of majority rule that lies at the heart of the U.S. Constitution.

    Filibuster and False-Equivalence Fiesta

    By James Fallows – May 15, 2012

    —————————–

    News has piled up fast about the filibuster in the past two weeks, and I am way behind in taking note of it. While I have ten minutes at a computer just now — and am not in a taxi, in a security line, in a green room, or in some other fashion enjoying the delights of new-city-each-day travel — here is a quick update on some relevant reading tips:

    1) Ezra Klein on the lawsuit Common Cause is initiating, on grounds that abuse of the filibuster has risen to the level of unconstitutional offense. (More info from Common Cause here.) Klein’s item also has this explaino-graph:

    2) Greg Sargent on the blunt anti-false-equivalence article by Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein last month (from their book), and the “move along here, nothing to notice” attitude of some of the media outlets who were most directly the objects of Mann and Ornstein’s criticism.

      They’ve been doing this from day 1. Their job is to depress the electorate and keep voters away from the polls.

    I don’t know how I lost touch with this great blog but I’m so glad BWD sent me the link today – I spent some time checking it out and found the speeches section on the right, clicked on a few and am smiling and it made my entire day!! I won’t forget it again – this is where I will come when the “liberal” media (HA!!!!! Corporations own all of our airwaves so we have to make do with a few hours a day – Rachel, Ed and Lawrence lift me up after the others throw me to the ground! Radio? Forget about it unless you have Sirius which I don’t – here in South Florida we get TWO hours a day on ONE station – God Bless Randi Rhodes!) piss me off with their lies about our ever awesome and amazing President!

    Reading the comments – we not only have a huge problem regarding the filibuster – here in Florida and I know many other States the voting laws have been changed to such a degree that even though we have hundreds of thousands more registered Dems here our chances of winning are slim – NOT because the President wouldn’t win if these laws weren’t in place – ONLY because of the new laws! That’s Democracy? I feel like we’re living in a 3rd world country – that these bastards can get away with this crap is stunning and very frightening! Did you know that the League of Women Voters is NOT doing voter registration in Florida because of the new voter registration restrictions? Can you imagine?
