    Sharing a bit of #SelfDeportMitt with Marc Anthony ….

    And, his pathetic response – hides in the back of the plane, sends the Gorka loser to yammer with the press and …

    hf, looks like you’ll soon be receiving one of those special PBO photos from the Chips archive 🙂

    Having a Meal with the President, what a ( GREAT ) video. Can you imagine anyone honestly sitting down with Mitt Romney and saying the same thing about him?

      I was thinking about what regular folk dinner companions would say about mittard and guessing they would be hatin’ on PBO like mitt does. He says nothing about what he would do except trust him(GAG) and spends all his verbage smearing lies on PObama.

    These videos sometimes just choke me up. I love how POTUS brings out the decency of people who have a clear mind and an open heart. He’s just a sweet, kind-hearted soul.

      I love how POTUS brings out the decency of people who have a clear mind and an open heart.

      And IMO there’s where PBO’s margin of victory will materialize, because despite what media and GOP crazies would like to have us believe, there are QUIET republicans who fit this description.

    Birds of a feather ….

    Strong correlation of those who never had to earn anything, perform any useful task, and their willingness to use debt as a weapon to achieve their goals.

    They do not have any values; they do not have any concern for future generations excepting their entitled spawn.

    It’s time we, as a species, stop this several thousand year old attempt of the few to control the destiny of humanity.

    President Obama truly understands that that is what is at stake in this election. We win, humanity wins big. No way we lose, not with this much at stake.

    Rachel said that the Repub Senator from Montana is not going to attend the RNC convention. I wouldn’t have known that had she not mentioned it on her show. Yet the MSM is gleefully announcing every DEM who is not going to the DNC convention while keeping tight lipped for the same on the Republican side.

    WHY?????

      Because the MSM are GOP trolls? Everything has to be “bad news for Obama,” with these tools.

      Is that the gop who is running for senate? Denny Rehberg? Found this on The Note…Big news about Dems but not so much at the end of the article regarding gops like Denny Rehberg.

      “List of Democrats Skipping the Party’s National Convention Continues to Grow”

      “Democrats are not alone, Republican elected officials have opted not to attend this year’s GOP convention in Tampa Bay, Fla. as well. Recently, Montana Rep. and GOP Senate nominee Denny Rehberg announced he would not be attending. Rehberg has been distancing himself to some degree from the Republican congress, he recently ran an ad in which he criticized Paul Ryan’s budget proposal.”

      http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/06/list-of-democrats-skipping-the-partys-national-convention-continues-to-grow/

      “Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri told reporters Tuesday that she has never gone to conventions when she’s had contested elections, and that the Washington press reaction to the news is “silly.” Earlier Tuesday an aide to McCaskill confirmed to CNN that the senator will not go to the convention, which will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina during the first week of September.”

    Ok, one more parrot joke.

    Mrs. Peterson phoned the repairman because her dishwasher quit working. Since she had to go to work that day, she told him, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dish washer, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you a check. By the way, I have a large rotweiler inside named Killer; he won’t bother you. I also have a parrot, and whatever you do, do not talk to the bird. I repeat, do not talk to the bird!”

    So the repairer turns up at her house and sure enough the dog, Killer, completely ignored the him but the whole time he was there, the parrot cursed, yelled, screamed, and about drove him nuts.

    As he was ready to leave, he couldn’t resist saying, “You stupid bird, why don’t you shut up!”

    To which the bird replied, “Killer, go, get him boy!”

    That made me chuckle at lot. PBO events are real heart boosters. At the end on my last viewing as soon as the thought ‘Top that, Willard’ flickered through my mind I saw my favourite Willard picture of him and the cringing coffee drinker. The thought of that woman’s true reaction to Willard also makes me laugh, without even seeing the picture.

    The House late Tuesday rejected a Democratic proposal to instruct the House to accept the Senate’s highway bill.

    House Minority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) raised the motion last week, when it was debated, but it was expected to fail given House GOP opposition to the Senate bill. The House turned away Hoyer’s motion to instruct by a 172-225 vote.

      I heard there are as many as 30 who plan to vote yes. I hope people are ready to call their Representatives and demand that they do the right thing. I don’t think any of them brought contempt charges against any of the criminals from the Republican party and Bush administration. It’s really sickening.

    The media is trying to take everything and turn it into a negative for President Obama. I believe the media is own by right wing billionaires. Most Dems will be at the Convention.

    • June 26, 2012 at 10:13 pm

      Exactly – they are making a huge deal of inconsequential DEMS who are not going to be missed by ANYONE. For e.g., who gives a kangaroo’s bottom whether John Tester is at the convention? Meanwhile nary a peep from them about the Republicans who can’t stand Willard and will not be at the RNC convention.

      TPM actually has a SLIDE SHOW of the DEMS who plan to not show up..what a colossal waste of journalistic space and time. Why don’t they have a SLIDE SHOW of the number of tax returns that Willard released to McCain in 2008 but refused to release in 2012?

    Michelle Obama got a boost Tuesday from her home state of Illinois in her campaign to make it easier for military spouses to advance their own careers amid the frequent moves that come with life in a military family.
    The first lady attended a bill signing ceremony at an Illinois National Guard armory in Chicago during which Gov. Pat Quinn made the state the 23rd in the nation to have legislation supporting Obama’s efforts. The law, which takes effect Jan. 1, makes it easier for veterans and their spouses to transfer out-of-state occupational licenses so they can stay on the job in professions like nursing and teaching after relocating.
    Speaking to a few hundred uniformed service members and their families at Tuesday’s ceremony, Obama said she was moved to act after hearing the stories of military wives and husbands “who simply want to provide for their families and get back to the careers they love.”
    “The story of the teacher who has moved 12 times, taking odd jobs to pay the bills,” she said. “The story of the social worker whose skills go unused as she waits months for paperwork to clear. The accountants, the psychologists, the real-estate agents, child care providers and so many others.”
    “But far too often they’re stuck in a web of bureaucracy,” she said.
    Nationally, there are 100,000 military spouses who work in jobs that require state licenses or certification, according to the first lady’s office. The issue affects people in dozens of professions, including teachers, nurses, speech pathologists, dental hygienists, physical therapists and emergency medical technicians. In Illinois, there are more than 16,000 military families, according to the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

    CHILLICOTHE, Ohio — A cheer erupted at about 8 on a June evening as a woman scrawled with red marker on paper taped to the wall: the small group in a storefront Obama campaign office in this Mayberry-like southern Ohio town had exceeded the night’s goal of calling 700 voters with an hour to go, despite time out for a pep talk from a surprise visitor, former Gov. Ted Strickland.

    So cool. Thx for posting this. It brings tears to my eyes to see the President sit down for a meal with ordinary folks who are working hard for him. I loved the firefighter’s story and I imagine there are a lot of firefighters, police and teachers who experienced a similar feeling. No one can sit this one out. Let’s get out the vote, People!
