      This is high on my list of why I love PBO. He stopped, he posed for pictures, he left a personal message, and he made Myra’s day and my day, too.

      That S.O.B. piece of trash Joe Walsh have got some nerve, African Americans are not dependent on government. You have some up there just like whites. Many AA have and are working hard. This racists dead beat Dad is a disgrace to the human race..

        People like Joe Walsh is the reason why are economy is in the shape it is in. These racists ass tea baggers were determined they were not going to work with that black President, they didn’t care if the economy fell apart. They will destroy this country just so they can get what they want. My hope is that the American people will not be fool by them.

      It’s a blatant right wing racist stereotype and the Rep should be better than that in not repeating it. It’s amazing how Black people have become the GOP’s punching bag yet the GOP still wonder why they can’t get their votes.

      Sad how low the GOP has sunk. But I’m sure it’s allll Obama’s fault …..somehow.

      Isn’t it just the other way around ? I think (at least nationally) the Government is dependent on the Latino and African American vote (now, if combined, a quarter of the electorate).

      [ Disclosure: I am a huge fan of Tammy Duckworth, given how she came back to serve her country in a different role. ]

    Well, PBO will be back home soon. It’s kind of dreary here today, but I got something that should warm him up. That’s why he wasn’t at all down about the job numbers, he knew I’d make it all batter. Like a mother hen…check that….more like a cougar…cluck, cluck, meow.

          Chi-town at about 5:20. Just in time for rush hour. We’ll be staying at the house tonight after the event at the cultural center and the 2 fundraisers at private homes. He won’t be here long, leaves tomorrow. So much to do…so little time…sigh

    Robney Team saying to the National media that they are mad, mad at them for not being able to define Willard.
    Then, while he had paid staff(admittedly) run to The Axelrod event, he was saying that Obama supporters(who??? OWS?) was doing the same to Him.
    I have seen this strategy for a while now.
    Accuse the other Guy of resorting to cheap tricks or if that Person has a disadvantage, play the victim, before the other Guy does.

    I wish I knew what Obama was really thinking – if he was confident he still had this or if there was some doubt. He’s a good poker player, you can’t read his face, even if, deep down, he’s terrified things are going in the wrong direction for his campaign. He’s not like Romney, who becomes increasingly agitated when things don’t go his way, or it looks like he’s in trouble. Obama, even in ’08, carried a smile, regardless of what was happening and what the polls said.

    Then again, maybe I don’t want to know! heh


    • June 1, 2012 at 3:33 pm

      He and Michelle have always said that he never gets too high, nor too low about anything. He has a unique gift of compartmentalizing. He attended the press dinner, laughed and made fun of Chump, while knowing the his order to have Navy Seals go get Bin Laden could have tremendous fallout. He catches flies mid-air, while giving an interview. I think it has to do with being from Hawaii, away from the crazy of the mainland.

      i do not think he is terrified….how do i know….consider….

      this from the man who decides each and every target in the war against Al Kiada…this from the man who stares down the G8 or the G20….this from the man who stared down the Donald…

      and SmartyPants had a excellent essay today.


      just a lil bit of it…

      And on that note, do you know what makes Barack Obama such a great President? He doesn’t do this crap. He doesn’t give up, he doesn’t wring his hands and collapse into a fetal position under the Oval Office Desk. He’s a level headed man who, as I type this, is probably meeting with economic advisers and campaign staff, working out strategies and floating around ideas to win this election and improve this economy.
