    So – Romney went there, just shows how desperate he is.

    Haven’t had a chance to comment much lately. School started and OFA is busier everyday.

    This is a perfect opportunity to use titter to push out the president’s achievements. As we send out Twitter responses to Romney’s comments tuck in a positive about PBO


    Romney makes birther joke PBO shares vision for middle class families and fights to extend life of Medicare

    As I rite this example I know the Twitter folks can do better, but this may help get the ball rolling. Utahliberal and Bobfr, please share your gems so the clueless like me can retweet.

We will only ask for the people to get out and vote and then we will show Mitten the Victory Certificate on Nov.6, 2012. Then this will give these awful, mean-spirited people something to cry about. We will win at the voting booth. HZ

    He wants to change the topic and rev up his base for the convention – don’t let the reporters get away with it. Meta had a brilliant twitter response in previous thread – definitely worth a RT. I swear, if I got a tweet like that – no matter how big of an asshole – I’d die of shame.

    I wanted to add to Chips wonderful suggestion to donate, we can also pledge to volunteer.

    When the election was 100 days away, I was inspired by many here, especially Donna who is getting a donation everyday between now and the election.

    I decided to volunteer at least 1 hour per day until Nov. 6th. I often do this from home using the predictive dialer that calls into Nevada or Colorado. Sometimes I work at the Farmers Market, sometimes I’m at the OFA office or attending a phone bank. That is one of the reasons I will have less time to be here at this blog, but I think folks understands.

    What would happen if everyone here did the same? Hpw many calls could we make, how many voters could be registered or volunteers brought into the fold?

    Mrs Obama said “It just takes one” – one can have many forms

    one person, one donation, one hour of work

    I wanted to share a story from the Wednesday Night Market 2 days ago.

    An older man – 60+ came up to me and asked how he could “register to vote for President Obama”. I gave him the form and explained that the process was the same no matter who he voted for. He told me he had never voted – remember this is an older gentleman. He said he had seen Mrs. Obama speak on TV and he realized that President Obama was doing important things and he wanted to support him.

    He left smiling and clutching his stub saying “this means I can vote for President Obama?”

    Although this election will be very tough, we will all look back on moments like that and be glad we participated.

    well, since mittbot brought it up, let’s look at his supposed “certificate of live birth” shall we?

    note that it’s not “long form” and is the same or less detailed the the two president obama has provided. and what’s with the font and printing?!? there’s no way that was typed in 1947!! so considering mittbot’s dad was born in mexico, he’a proven pathological liar, and he’s a powerful member of a highly secretive church, i’d say it’s time to get confirmation from the michigan department of records that this cropped, one-page “certificate of live birth” that mittbot provided is not a forgery.

    thanks for the heads up mittbot, and since you decided to bring your wife into this topic, let’s see hers while we’re at then. have fun next week in tampa, mittbot!

        On iPad or iPhone, just ‘save image’… Easy peasy…. Myth Robney is an attention getting child in an adult body… I think he is terrified of the idea that he may somehow become President, knowing in his own heart (if he has one) that is is grossly under qualified… And is doing himself in with these pathetic antics…. I truly hope it works, and he finds himself out of the running, the sooner the better.

    When I first read about this (unable to see video at work) I read that Romney’s comment came in response to something said or asked by a member of the audience. Can someone confirm that for me and what it was the audience member said? Remember when Mitt was talking to a crowd and a woman called PBO a “monster” and all Mitt did was nod his head and move on, tyhereby giving affirmation to the woman’s comment? This is like the same thing, except worse. It is like he said, back then, “Well, at least nobody has called me a monster.”

      August 24, 2012 at 2:50 pm

      Hey Japa, I don’t think it was in response to a question, because I was watching the live feed on CSPAN when he said the remarks and don’t recall anyone asking him any question. It was part of his introduction at the beginning of his stump speech. That makes it even worse, because it was totally unprovoked and uncalled for. He could have just said, Both Ann and I are from Michigan and we loved growing up here..or something to that effect. But no, he had to notch it up by invoking Birther memes.

Significantly, the brief points to the fact that the Voting Rights Act impedes laws intended to make it more difficult for racial minorities to cast a ballot as a reason why Court should cast a skeptical gaze on the landmark voting rights law responsible for breaking the back of Jim Crow:

    ‘ Imagine it’s November 7, President Barack Obama has won a second term and he now looks abroad, ready to pursue his foreign policy vision essentially free of electoral constraints.

    The difference between PBO referring to what Romney put on his roof, and Myth mentioning his birth certificate? Myth R-money actually put his dog on the roof of his car. PBO was born in Hawai’i.

    PBO referenced something that was TRUE. R-money is whipping up a racist, stupid crowd mentioning something that is FALSE, has been proven FALSE, time and time again.

    Besides, R-money, we don’t want to see your birth certificate, WE WANT TO SEE YOUR TAX RETURNS.

        He’s not dropping out, and CNN won’t be carrying the presser live because they say it’s not news. But most importantly they would rather talk about their stupid push poll that they’ve just manufactured to make a “good news for Rommney” story.

      with Huckabee now strongly behind him, I doubt Akin is going anywhere. Like I said yesterday, it would serve ’em right if Huckabee had Akin come with him to the convention as his +1

    There’s this really cool Tumblr called “90 Days. 90 Reasons.” People write down their reasons for why Pres. Obama needs to be reelected. It’s pretty cool so far.

    Donated today…….Will keep donating! As much as I can. That horrible man has got to be defeated, and not just marginally, he has to be trounced! Also, we have to give the President a Congress that he can work with.
    My fond wish is that Romney will be buried, and we will NEVER have to hear the awful name again. I am so tired of his constant running for President.
    The American people don’t like you Myth! LEAVE!!!
