    I hear from twitterverse that Newt Gingrich getting taken to woodshet by Rev Al on Politics Nation.

    Credit where credit’s due I guess, good on Gingrich for even going on Rev Al’s show I guess.

    if you’re watching ‪#PoliticsNation‬ you’ll get why much of the black community loves/ trusts @TheRevAl-he defends the dignity of working folk

      Lamh35, I watched that on Al’s show, Newtie was stammering a little bit, but that man can talk and talk and talk, Al did try putting him in his place, but it was hard. Newt stuck by what he had said during the primaries. He really is a sleaze ball. slimey on top of that. 🙂

        Roberta once Newtie begins to stammer however slight, and once he admits that there was a meeting to sabotage PBO, it’s OVAH. Only Rev Al could come close to doing any of that. All the MSNBC or CNN pundits, black or white would be the ones left stammering, not Newt.

      • June 12, 2012 at 7:33 pm

        i would prefer not to have to look at Newtie again. There are so many other people—billions—-who are more worthy of air time, whatever the purpose.

      I just posted a comment on the last thread about him admitting that the meeting occurred…..that’s what I saw on Twitter anyway since I didn’t watch……..

      Rev sure did put the light on that roach. He also exposed the Congressional Committee for their role in trying to railroad Eric Holder the AG.

      My husband said that Rev. Al ‘cooked Newt’s grits’.

    About that loss in Americans net worth…http://mediamatters.org/research/201206120007

    Right-Wing Media Hypes Fall In Net Worth, Ignores Burst Of Housing Bubble
    5 hours and 4 minutes ago — 14 Comments
    Right-wing media are attacking President Obama over a recent Federal Reserve report that found that the median net worth of American families contracted between 2007 and 2010. However, right-wing media are ignoring the effects of the burst of the housing bubble and its central role in causing the decrease in the median wealth of families.

    Fed Blames Housing Crisis For Most Of The Decrease In Family Net Worth

    Fed: “Housing Was Of Greater Importance Than Financial Assets For The Wealth Position Of Most Families.”

    Did you all see this??? I hadn’t heard this before, well…just now.


    After unanimous approval, the FEC ruled Monday night that campaigns can collect donations of up to $50 per billing cycle via cell phone. The charge would appear on the user’s phone bill. From The Hill:

    Text donations would be capped at between $10 and $50 per billing cycle and campaigns would enforce that restriction through tracking donations from a single user’s mobile phone number to a single premium short code assigned to the political committee. The short code would also enable the aggregator and carriers to ensure “the $50 limit is never exceeded for one political recipient.”

      Freaking awesome. Whenever the gossipy hacks aka pundits say it’s a “bad week” for Pres. Obama; translation: he’s kicking ass and they hate it!

        Exactly UT. That’s why I don’t take my cues from the MSM as to how I should react to PBO or his campaign. I simply chill the F out. He’s got this!

    The Obama campaign has pumped nearly $14 million into a new, multi-week wave of television ads, a media-tracking source tells me.

    The ad reservations span June 12 to July 2, covering Ohio ($3.6 million so far), Florida ($2.3 million), North Carolina ($1.7 million), Virginia ($1.3 million), Iowa ($1.1 million), Nevada ($1.1 million), Colorado ($1 million), Pennsylvania ($852,000) and New Hampshire ($800,000). Those numbers may grow as the campaign continues to buy.

    All told, it’s about $13.7 million so far — a big sum of cash to throw down in June.

    The buys come hours after the Obama camp unveiled its second TV ad targeting Mitt Romney’s record as governor of Massachusetts.

    • June 12, 2012 at 7:10 pm

      End of last month it was 25 million, then Priorities USA went up with a 7 million dollar buy and this week a 4 million dollar buy, and now this 14.7 million dollar buy.
      That is almost 50 million smackerooz!

    Helloo Chips Chica! How are you? Now that you are pausing for breath (and since you don’t have to nurse your twitter bud anymore) are you hunting for my Saturday reward picture? I’ll take one with a little one, as usual. Thanks! 😆 😆

    • June 12, 2012 at 7:13 pm

      Helloooooooooooooo my beloved (and ever so slightly crazy) VC, how are you doing my buddy??

        This pic is perfect! Thank you ma’am. 😆 I imagine I looked as pretty as this little cutie pie when **I** was a baby, yet there was no PBO for me to laugh with. She is fortunate!

        I’m good! I haven’t been at all crazy this past week – too busy. 😉 Are YOU all caught up on the (paying) work scene for now? I hope so for your sake.

    First, we literally can’t afford to take anything for granted or to underestimate our opponents.

    Second, it really is “all about the Benjamins”

    Third, we can’t give our opponents the bat they will use to hit us, or legitimize GOP spin.

    • June 12, 2012 at 7:22 pm

      I am sure the campaign takes him very seriously. My mother always said that she was more afraid of a liar than she was a snake, and it is very true. Romney’s lies are dangerous.

    • 43 vcprezofan2

      This is definitely my position with regards to Romney. No matter what he says we should take him seriously, because IMO each little piece he utters is a piece that reveals who he is at his ‘core’.

    Everyone who is on Twitter, please tweet this hashtag #ISupportAGEricHolder or #ISupportAGHolder to show your support for AG Eric Holder in his efforts to push back against GOP voter purge in FL.

    Looking at the pictures i have to say, President Obama has got to be the most hugged, the most touched politician in my lifetime. People just can’t seem to keep their hands to themselves when he’s near. Look at that young lady stroking his sleeve. 🙄

      That’s my nephew in the 4th picture down – in light blue shirt getting ready to shake President Obama’s hand! I’m so excited for him – he works his butt off for the campaign and went to make persuadable calls afterward – a lot of young people are working hard to re-elect President Obama! I’m so proud and excited!

        June 12, 2012 at 8:20 pm

        Good for him, he seems excited himself! No doubt you’ll get all the little details of his experience. 😆 I feel good seeing so many young people engaged and aware that they are in a very real sense fighting for their futures.
