    Chris Cuomo 20/20 news guy is a moron. He was just on the ABC daytime show; The View and blamed Pres. Obama for lack of adequate gun control, basically blamed him for mad men having access to guns and killing people and then said the NRA was not to blame because the NRA is not a powerful lobby. That they are just like every lobbying organization out there and don’t have the power to coerce congressmen and women and affect new or existing laws. The bias in his comment was so glaringly obvious. Are you freaking kidding me? The NRA isn’t a powerful organization? They don’t bully congress? They don’t threaten to chase out of town any congressperson who goes against them? Simply put; Chris Cuomo is either very naive or is an out and out fool.

        Chris Coumo is Not the brother running NY as their gov. This is his younger brother, Chris. And he has been called Dumb by some, even though he is an attorney by trade.

      These juvenile news people who have their jobs because of their fathers simply repeat what they are told is the theme of the day. They have no curiosity, original thoughts, or passion, their motivation is being part of the “in crowd”.

      Do I get to vote, UT? He’s neither naive or a fool, he’s being paid big bucks to whitewash NRA and put the blame on the president. He’ll come out of his little gig a richer man with a big check to deposit in his bank and a big behind-the-scenes assurance of future support from the NRA for anything his little self wants to do.

        I will convey TOD love and admiration if I get close enough. We’re in the cheap seats. 🙂 Just breathing the same air and hearing PBO in the same room has me buzzed to crank up my neighborhood team volunteering even more. We have a team meeting tomorrow night after the luncheon, and our team is trying to grow into 7 by the time of PBO’s acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention.

    Thom Hartmann (July 19, 2012) Bain Capital and El Salvador death squads

    Thom Hartmann describes how Mitt Romney founded Bain Capital with the help of wealthy families from El Salvador tied with the right-wing, Reagan administration-backed death squads.

    • 47 desertflower
      July 23, 2012 at 11:53 am

      These are the “foreign investors” that allowed Mitt to start Bain Capital….


      A significant portion of the seed money that created Mitt Romney’s private equity firm, Bain Capital, was provided by wealthy oligarchs from El Salvador, including members of a family with a relative who allegedly financed rightist groups that used death squads during the country’s bloody civil war in the 1980s

      Republicans love to taint others with their own crimes. Now I see why Romney keeps saying that President Obama should be apologizing “to” America. It’s actually Mitt Romney who owes America a HUGE apology several, in fact. He is despicable.

      Unrelenting, that’s what it’s going to take. I keep thinking, if PBO had done even 1/100th of the things that R-money has done, he’s be toast, done, finito. The arrogance, mean spiritedness, and greed of this guy is just astounding!!

      GW Bush didn’t visit Israel until in Jan 2008.

      Israel is an ally, Not the 51st state. There are a number of states that PBO has not visited since Jan 20, 2009.

    ObamaCare is working folks. As more people over the summer and into the fall keep getting rebate checks and benefits with the underlying graphic that shows this is possible because of the Affordable Care Act, the more it works in Pres. Obama’s favor.

    Rep. Sensenbrenner – R defends Huma Abedin

    • 67 isonprize
      July 23, 2012 at 1:30 pm

      Considering that this is the same guy who spoke negatively about the body shape of FLOTUS, I am surprised that he so eloquently quoted the constitution and defended Huma Abedin.

      I won’t, however, give him credit for doing what ALL sworn reps of the US are supposed to do, namely, stand up for all citizens of the United States. I will say that I’m heartened to learn that there are some R-thugs who can read the Constitution and accurately cite sections that pertain the religious liberty.

    According to a report from the Federal Reserve, over the last two decades the nation’s biggest banks have created thousands of subsidiaries for the purpose of dodging taxes and regulation. As Bloomberg News reported, the most prolific user of these subsidiaries is JP Morgan Chase:
    The biggest U.S. banks created more than 10,000 subsidiaries in the past 22 years as they expanded, using legal structures to pay lower taxes and escape tighter regulation, according to a Federal Reserve study.

    The use of corporate tax havens costs the U.S. government about $60 billion annually. In order to make up for that lost revenue, the U.S. would have to charge every one of the nation’s small businesses $2,116.

    Alex Gagner and Jodi Kantor are going to analyze the Aurora shooter ? She also has that weirdo that wrote a book about Columbine.

    Do they both have Phd’s is Psychology ?

    Conservatives Outraged Over Obama Releasing Photo of Private Visit with Aurora Victims

    By: Sarah Jones


    This, ladies and gentlemen, is what conservatives hate about this President. He is, in fact, an example of what is best in us. He not only showed up, he spoke to the victims and their families and as a leader, he found a way to relate to them as a human being while also offering us a glimpse of light out of the dark despair.

    It’s sort of like flying over the post-Katrina devastation of New Orleans in Air Force One, peering out of the window removed and ensconced in awkward, bumbling, blue-blooded privilege, only not. And yes, it matters. It matters that our President has the ability to lead us in dark times, that he can step in and fill the void with something that reminds us of who we can be, who we are at our best. It’s a course he’s setting us on: Don’t be the worst of us, be the best of us. Be someone like Stephanie.

      It’s President Obama’s job as president to offer comfort to the people of this country. Seeing him with the victims offered many others a face to relate to the strategy, and comfort as he comforted the direct victims. The GOP have nothing to offer this country, and they are so full of hate that they can’t just leave a tender moment alone, for the good of the country. It’s pretty sad.

      Let’s Move!: As she leads the Presidential Delegation, First Lady will cheer on Team USA and host a huge kids’ fitness event; meet with The Queen; and be joined by Olympics legends and David Beckham…

      First Lady Michelle Obama will lead the seven-member Presidential Delegation to the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games, and the White House on Monday released her official schedule. Mrs. Obama arrives in the United Kingdom on the evening of Thursday, July 26th and will be in London through Sunday, July 29th. In addition to meeting with and cheering on members of Team USA, Mrs. Obama will have separate events with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace and with Mrs. Samantha Cameron, wife of the British Prime Minister. She will also be joined by a slate of Olympics legends in addition to those who are members of the Delegation–and by British Soccer star David Beckham.

    Look, ma, I can lie about Obama’s quote, too!

    By Greg Sargent


    The Brown video also unwittingly demonstrates just how ridiculous this attack really is. It includes speeches from John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and Bill Clinton extolling the virtues of free enterprise, suggesting that Obama and Warren represent a radical departure from what these previous Dems think.

    Yet Obama regularly extolls the free market as one of the greatest forces for progress and wealth creation the world has ever known. The only way Brown and Romney can portray Obama’s sentiments as radical or out of step with that of “good” Dems like JFK and Clinton is by decontextualizing that quote in a way that amounts to straight-up lying.

    For the good of my mental health I will be taking a break from this wonderful site. I can no longer stomach the hate and evil directed at our President. The TOD family is wonderful and we all are here to fight for our President and the TRUTH. History tells us that it is the American people that must rise up from the ground too fight the forces that are there to hold them down and “blind” them with money sponsored lies.
    I blame Americans, the media feeds them and they eat without checking the ingredients. We have been poisoned and we keep eating the shit we are fed. Greed is the American fast food, and it is killing us. Thank you TOD family I hope to come back when I feel stronger!

    You know what I’m noticing that’s happening? More and more of the filthy, corporatist shenanigans,that have been going on a long time are slowly coming to light. I know all of them aren’t, but one by one, drip by drip, more and more that has been hidden is coming out into public view. These horrors have to be opened up for people to believe and understand just how they have been used the last thirty years.
    When President Obama came into office, it was not only the chaos of the Bush years he had to start dealing with, but it was the deceit and anti-people actions built up since Reagan. Several of us yesterday talked about Reagan……his breaking the Air Traffic Controllers union, which set up this anti-worker mentality, the lowering of wages all over, the Iran-Contra scandal, his whole “government is the problem” mantra…..
    I’m not at all surprised by Romney’s dealing with El Salvador’s oligarchs……this too needs to be exposed.
    Here’s hoping there is some enterprising journalist (not likely) or self-appointed detective who will ferret out papers Romney has tried to hide and bring them forward.
    Even the exposing of the pollsters and their underhanded skewing is new. Their word used to be accepted as gospel……now people are exposing their methods. The right hates this. They want the people dumb and ignorant. This poison has had to escape, and it is.
