      Hope all dads had a great day yesterday. My children chipped in to buy MLB League Pass on cable. There is nothing better then sitting in the HOT Texas summer sun with an ice cold beer, no cell phones, no computers. Just you and your children enjoying each member of the family. We are not in Texas anymore so…..Texas Rangers are only on TV for us. I chipped in just a bit too.

    Alright, had a great time in NOLA with the fam. Glad to be back home though. Missed the majority of the poltical news, but I’m glad. I feel a little more rejuvenated.

    Anyway, fudge Ann Romeny, FLOTUS is the best

    Tweety destroyed Mittens in that segment. He has a visceral dislike of the man.

      I just wish that visceral dislike would translate into not see-sawing on PBO with every shift in the wind. Use the Force, Tweety!

      I hope he keeps it up. The problem with Matthews is that he has a tendency to be all over the map. Don’t be surprised if next week he comes out slamming the President.

        I like Tweety a lot. He says some silly, panicky things sometimes but generally he’s been a big fan of PBO and he really helped out big time back in 2008 when the Pres was fighting the Clintons. He’s a Washington elite but as far as they go he’s okay.

          Plus, I’d take Tweety if I was in a war over supposed big time liberals like Chris Hayes any day. Tweety can and is willing to fight when it’s necessary.

      I know, and we must be wary of such intense dislike, for it makes us little better than them. I thought this morning on the way to work, perhaps we could turn the tide by praying for their enlightenment, in hopes of bringing them to see Light and Reason. As it is, we set up a negative vibration corresponding to their negative vibrations, and it seems we shall never be free of the darkness. That is not what our President does, he stays focussed in the Light, and his Heart stays open to all.

        ‘As it is, we set up a negative vibration corresponding to their negative vibrations, and it seems we shall never be free of the darkness’

        In a way, this is what I’ve been trying to call us away from with my Saturday and Sunday rambling comment. We (the engaged Dems) have played back and forth with Repubs for over three years and IMO it’s time we shake them loose so that we can focus our energies on sharing the positive messages about Dem successes and Dem plans for the country. Repub MO has not changed, and it won’t by Nov. They have nothing new or creative to add to the dialogue. Their accusations and tactics are like dead weight and as long as we engage with them it will weigh us down. We have engaged for over three years. I vote we now reFOCUS ALL our energies and align with PBO’s approach – look ’em in the eye and tell the truth; no name calling, no negative bashing, no shouting, just the truth! Let’s make sure our contacts hear OUR side.

    Someone suggested Willard’s slogan should be the “Prepare for War” candidate. Adelson wants SOMETHING in exchange for trying to buy WIllard the WH. Those multi millions don’t come without strings!

    I see Willard with an empty head. Neocons open his empty head, put their shit in, evangelicals open Mitt’s head, put their shit in,Grover, can’t forget Grover….well, Willard already signed that pledge, so Grover’s shit is already in Mitt’s head….Big business, shit in Mitt’s head…on and on it goes…..whatever they want, that’s what he’ll do….because he’s not interested in being a President of the People (unless you’re the corporate variety…now THOSE are PEOPLE!) Being President, is like a trophy. A notch on his belt. I can’t WAIT for America to be introduced to this sham. Those debates are going to kick ass….and I know who’s gonna do the kicking. Seriously.

      Yeah , I turned the channel. She bashed pubs, exposed there nasty humor regarding some of the high power democratic women- Michelle, Hilary and Nancy. She then segued into total excitement about Ron Paul possible tactics in Tampa. Then she exposed mor pub ugliness only to segue into how aweful democrats are at holding Mitt accountable for his associations, and lies. No mention of course of the lame ass media, indluding MSNBC. Click!

  16. 80 utaustinliberal
    June 18, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    I see it’s gossip hour on Piers Morgan. The author of the new book about Pres. Obama was tonight’s featured guest. His name is David Maraniss. What a fucking twerp! The interview was all gossip, conjecture, ridiculous psychoanalysis. I see why Chips and a lot of people across the pond despise Piers Morgan. Ugh. Maraniss said Pres. Obama blamed everything wrong in his life on race and racism. That he never took responsibility. He called Pres. Obama’s two books “literature and fiction” That his book really shows us who the real Pres. Obama is. That he’s a very cool customer in terms of his personality. It’s kind of an aloof personality. That he prefers to observe rather than participate in and live life. That he regarded his mom as someone who was just too naive. That his relationship with the white girlfriend in NY was the most defining relationship of his life. That his book talks about the consequences of Pres. Obama using drugs in his past and Pres. Obama didn’t really talk about his use of drugs. Um…helloooo…PBO did talk about it in his book. That Pres. Obama blamed his coach in high school for him not advancing in basketball because the coach didn’t understand that basketball is played “Black” and the coach wanted him to play it “White” It was all nonsense. When Piers asked him to give an observation of Romney, his personality, and his leadership style, Maraniss avoided the question and continued his gossipy rant against PBO.

    Half the time I was watching in bemusement not knowing whether to laugh or be angry at the absurdity of Maraniss playing psychiatrist to Pres. Obama.

    Now I know why PBO sat down with this fool. He probably heard about the load of crap this moron was filling his book with and wanted at least a modicum of truth to appear in the book.

      UT, I said yesterday, that all these people coming out with all these books to make a buck or try to damage President Obama, I don’t care to read them. I have said the only book I will read about Michelle or Barack Obama is the books that they write, other than that I don’t care to read it.

            June 18, 2012 at 10:55 pm

            Amazing, isn’t it, how these writers can delve into the mind of the president, and they can’t wait to do so! My take, like Annieb’s, is as I’m lucky enough to have a charmingly erudite president, I can wait to hear from him. By his actions, his expert use of words and my own ability to think, I understand PBO perfectly well, so I do not need any other interpreter!

      • 85 nathkatun7
        June 18, 2012 at 10:59 pm

        I am with you, anniebella! I will not spend even a penny to buy any of these books peddling gossip about President Obama. David Maraniss, if he were a truly interested in writing about President Obama objectively, should have waited until the President was no longer in office to write a biographical book about him. This book is all about trashing the President while pretending to be a responsible writer. I have observed the President since he made his keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic convention. I’ve also read his books, and his other numerous writings. I have listened to people, including his law professors, who have known him for a long time. I have observed the way he makes difficult decisions. I’ve noticed the way foreign leaders and people in other parts of the world respect him. So, I don’t need an author, looking for attention and money, trying to tell me about who President Obama is. I don’t think David Maraniss knows more about President Obama than Vice President Biden. I would rather listen to VP Biden’s take on the President than David Maraniss who is trying to make a buck on his book.

    • June 18, 2012 at 9:42 pm

      What a load.

      I admire your bravery ut! Thanks for sticking it out to give us the scoop. Maraniss is making his rounds – he will be in the Situation Room with Blitzen on Thursday to probably parrot the same nonsense he did on Piers. I’m sure his book will wind up in the same place as that Kantor-Fairy tales book.

      At this time the American people know enough about PBO to make up their minds what kind of person he is and was. They don’t need some agenda-driven, overpaid hack going all Dr. Phil on the President.

        So true, HF. These little idiots think their mediocre writing efforts are going to change the world and instead they wind up in the bargain bin or used as kindling. How delusional would you have to be to think some guy named Maraniss knew what PBO was thinking in high school? And the president has been married to the beautiful, brilliant, vibrant Michelle Obama (known and loved by millions) for over 17 years and who just happens to be the mother of his beloved children and his most defining relationship was with a girlfriend when he was in his 20’s? Oh please.

    • June 18, 2012 at 10:17 pm

      So a guy who ran for public office including the highest office in the land is being described as an observer rather than someone who participates in life?

      Cool character, aloof, blah blah oh that’s so new.

      And why is Piers Morgan asking this guy about Romney? the guy wrote a book on PBO, not Romney. What kind of dumbass question was that?

          Can you imagine??? You know Michelle got that honest. There aren’t many “city girls” who grew up back in the late ’60s and ’70s who didn’t know how to double dutch. Did you hear her let them know that they could turn a little faster?

          Don’t get me wrong, those kids were PHENOMENAL!!! And even when I was jumping every day, we didn’t do stuff like that. But I will say, we turned the rope a LOT faster!! I also remember the names we used. I have NO IDEA where “double dutch” came from, but turning the ropes ‘overhanded’ was called “double dutch.” Turning ‘underhanded’ was called “turning Irish” and turning double dutch, really REALLY fast was called ‘hot pepper.’

          The ultimate crime in turning was to be labeled “double handed.” That mean that one of your hands (usually your dominant hand) was stronger and thus made turning ‘uneven.’ You could hear if a person was double handed because the rhythm of the ropes were ‘off’ — thump-THUMP, thump-THUMP, thump-THUMP, instead of an even “thump, thump, thump, thump. thump, thump.”

          WOW, sorry ya’ll. That just brought back some fun, childhood memories!

      Jovie, I know I like you very much because you share so much valuable information that keep me informed. I also know that you are a dedicated supporter of the President. So, whatever you do is done to support the President. But, at times, as my grandmother would say, you seem to be so high-strung –especially when you freak out about polls, or what’s is written at Politico — that you come across as being negative.

      Good luck on getting tickets to see our President.
