                  Not me. I just like to watch the others crowding in and shake my head at them while muttering **Naughty mat again? Don’t you ever learn?**. PBO actually moves me most when he is with the kids. I get weak-kneed when they look each other in the eyes and you can almost feel the silent communication between them, or when he cradles a baby with such gentleness like in those pics yesterday. Those moments say more to me about his masculinity than any obvious sexy look does. Probably because you so rarely see moments like those in the lives of those in the public eye, while ‘sexy’ males are featured ad nauseum. What can I say? I don’t know why this is so…it just is. However, I do enjoy watching you others squirm. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

                      And incredibly in touch with his emotions. I have never before known a male in real life who is not ashamed to be himself in any situation. I’m happy for them, but I kinda, sorta, truly envy the young people who have been given such a terrific role model and still have the years/chance ahead to emulate it.

                      Yes – I often catch myself wishing that I was still in my twenties with an example like this man and his Administration of hard working, dedicated people. But, I also think the youth may not be able to recognize just how good they have it. I hope it inspires them to set this standard going forward. Not to let charlatans like Robney and company steal their futures.

    By their own estimate, officials with a Washington nonprofit have registered 200,000 voters in Florida the past eight years.

    This year, the same group, the Voter Participation Center, has mailed another 420,000 registration forms to residents hoping to enlist more.

    But state officials are considering ways to stop the center from sending any more registration forms, which the state calls confusing.

    “We are evaluating whether there is way to prevent VPC from sending such confusing letters, which are frequently going to ineligible voters and making many Floridians think the letters came from our department,” Chris Cate, a spokesman for the secretary of state’s office, wrote in an email to the Tampa Bay Times. “Meanwhile, we have contacted the organization, expressed our very serious concern that they are misleading voters, offered to provide them the complaints sent to the department about their mailings, and asked that they make a concerted effort to improve their lists so that only eligible voters who aren’t registered are being contacted.”

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the first-ever regulations aimed at reducing the gases blamed for global warming, handing down perhaps the most significant decision on the issue since a 2007 Supreme Court ruling that greenhouse gases could be controlled as air pollutants.

    Chuck Todd is on NBC Nightly News not mentioning Obama’s big lead in 12 swing states, 50-42. Saying race is tight, same as last poll, nationally 47-44 Obama, both candidates have big negatives. That’s despicable. Todd gave a completely misleading report, not mentioning the key finding in NBC’s latest poll—–the main news from the latest poll. Unethical and disgusting.

    She finish with this
    ”For a guy who should be well apprised of the limitations of our constitution – he was, after all, a constitutional law professor – Obama sure can’t seem to live within his means.”

    ”Some of you will undoubtedly call me an obstructionist, a curmudgeon, a partisan hack, or you’ll resort to total desperation and call me a racist. But the truth is, if a Republican president overreached in his authority as much as Obama has, you’d be calling for his impeachment.”

        Beck, along with co-hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere, took turns doing their best TourΓ© impressions. Doing his voice, Beck claimed that he and the other Cycle hosts were merely β€œyahoos” there to β€œhold the seats” while Cupp was the only person saying anything of substance. They then marveled at her ability to talk to β€œstupid” people and not care.

        And SE Cupp works for that hateful Beck.

      MSNBC needs to hear from its viewers. As I wrote earlier, this gig is a bust—-it’s the S.E. Cupp show—–she dominates the show and every discussion——with her outrageous whackadoodle opinions. What she is doing there I have no idea—–was the plan to inflame msnbc viewers? She’s nuts! And as many of us feared, Krystal Ball is completely wasted on that show—-she’s the sanity relief on that panel, but she gets little air time.

      • June 26, 2012 at 7:29 pm

        I don’t watch these shows but it bothers me that someone of Krystal Ball’s caliber – most of you love her & I follow her on twitter and think she’s good there – would join a show with such an idiotic premise. It is just to get air time? She damages her reputation if the show is as bad as you guys think it is. I hope she finds another way to get her voice out there.

      • June 26, 2012 at 7:34 pm

        MSNBainCapital knew exactly what they were doing when they placed Sippy Cupp in that “panel.” Right now their lead correspodent, Chuck Toad is one of Romney’s biggest surrogates. I read your post about his false reporting and just had to shake my head. He was the same on Tweety just now. His “reporting” and “analysis” are so blatantly spun in Romney’s favor. He was just on Tweety saying that PBO is leading “only” among educated Whites and minorities, and Romney is leading among “everyone else.”

        This is what’s gratifying. It’s no secret that the media is in Romney’s corner. But even with its “Obama is doomed” narrative, Mittens can make no headway. The polling backs this up.

    The White House press secretary issued this statement Tuesday on the deal Senate leaders reached on student loan rates:

    “We’re pleased that the Senate has reached a deal to keep rates low and continue offering hard-working students a fair shot at an affordable education. Higher education has never been more important to getting a good job. That’s why President Obama has made stopping this rate hike and saving 7.4 million students an average of $1,000 a priority since his State of the Union and has repeatedly called on Congress to act. We hope that Congress will complete the legislative process and send a bill to the President as soon as possible.”

      Who’s gonna pay for this deal? I bet there aren’t going to be any tax increases on the rich. I bet big oil and big agri get to keep their subsidies. I bet some social program that benefits the poor and vulnerable gets cut to pay for this.

        Yup! It is called compromise! They don’t get everything they want and neither do we!
        Actually, it’s how congress works!

          Exactly. And, maybe, for a change, we will see it in Congress, even temporarily, thanks to President Obama’s leadership.

      “Sources tell NBC …” anything with “Boehner, Cantor, et al” in the quote and you automatically know it’s a lie. I doubt if the White House/DOJ have offered Boehner anything other than the middle finger of their left and right hand.

      Hope you are doing as well as possible.

    “Pretty fantastic that Romney/GOP is making a campaign issue out of Obama not dropping his Chi-Sox pride and pandering to Red Sox fans”

    That is his stump speech?

      Bob…let’s think of how to say this…he’s basically saying that women, businesses that were helped, auto companies,LGBT,veterans…everyone that has been helped by this President…DOESN’T COUNT!
      All these were WASTED…because the only thing that REALLY mattered was ACA

      I hate this man. Now I understand why BWD feels the way she does.

    Hello TOD…I finally went ‘outside the box’ and signed up on twitter. You guys plus our President have motivated
    me to do this. I usually fight back by sending e-mails but I realize that we can’t fight a 21st century war with 19th century ammunition so I’ve decided to add twitter to my arsenal πŸ™‚ (Been resisting for a while)

    Have not sent my first tweet yet but looking forward to doing so. Would appreciate tips on how to go about this and navigating
    the twitterverse in general. Oh by the way my username is @ HOPE44FWD.

      Hey Hope44FWD – welcome to Twitter. You get the hang of it pretty quickly. There are lots of handy guides to get you started – just google “how to use twitter” and you’ll see text and video guides. I would advise downloading something like Tweetdeck to help manage your twitter screen – it helped me a lot in getting started. The regular screen was a bit overwhelming for me. Just go to one of the twitter people you think have good messages, and then check who they’re following, and start following them. You’ll start to see interesting messages come through, and soon – you’ll be tweeting up a storm.

      I’m @glomad67 on twitter.
      Some good ones to follow: @stefcutter @Lis_Smith @Obama2012

    ALL HANDS ON DECK re Fast & Furious – this needs to be a Twitter Shit Storm of Shakespearean proportions. If you’re not on Twitter – JUST DO IT ALREADY. Your President asked you to GET ON IT – so GET THE FUCK ON IT> Just imagine the army we’d have with ALL OF US tweeting at the same time.

    And no – I don’t have time to “tweet this for you.” It’s TIME TO STEP UP.
