      Bob, you are so right. I laughed out loud because it was funny but partly out of relief. The light-hearted moment was a reminder that our convention will be fun, inclusive and deeply meaningful. I love that the commercial didn’t take a shots at R&R. It shows that we’re not consumed with tearing them down in every second and moment. There will be time enough to do that and when we do…it won’t be funny or done in jest because there is nothing funny about what will happen to this country if R&R manage to get elected.

        Yes Indeed carol and Bob. Bobby Jindal is the King of pettiness! He is such a small minded person who is now trying to use a disaster to attack a president who is doing every thing to help the victims of that disaster. He can disrespect President Obama all he wants but I have this strong feeling that he Bobby Jindal will never, and I repeat never, earn the support and respect of the vast majority of Americans to be elected President.

      Potent stuff. Totally accurate.

      “Today, for Republicans, up is down and front is back. Lying has become so ingrained into the conservatives’ national dialogue that they are now dangerously demagogic or, worse, severely unhinged. Blind rage at the election of Barack Obama has wrecked a once great political party. Its leaders have made so many deals with the devil in their almost pathological obsession with unseating Obama that they have pushed the GOP into its own version of political hell – unable to speak truths to their now-rabid and conspiracy-addled base and unable to right the party back onto a path of responsibility.

      Only through the disinfectant of defeat can the Republicans, and the two party system, be preserved. And so, the campaign of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan must be consigned to the ash heap of history. Defeat must not only be decisive, it must be crippling.”

    Senior Romney adviser: It wasn’t necessary to thank troops at convention

    Senior Romney campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom on Sunday defended his boss for not thanking U.S. troops or even mentioning the war in Afghanistan while accepting the Republican presidential nomination during the GOP convention on Thursday.

    During an interview on CNN, host Candy Crowley asked Fehrnstrom if Mitt Romney snubbed the troops on purpose or if it was an oversight.

    “Well, the day before the convention speech, Candy, Gov. Romney traveled to Indianapolis on Wednesday, and he gave a speech before the American Legion,” the senior adviser explained. “That was an invitation that President [Barack] Obama declined. … And in that speech he talked about Afghanistan.”

    Crowley pointed out that even conservative Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol also blasted the former Massachusetts governor for failing to “utter a word of appreciation to the troops fighting.”

    “It has been since 1952 when a Republican did not mention troops serving overseas,” the CNN host told Fehrnstrom. “In hindsight, he should have said something…” [more in the article including video]

    How long did Bush take after Katrina??

    Obama’s already doing way better a job than the previous administration.

    Rep. Eric Cantor: Labor Day celebrates business owners

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) on Monday mistakenly described Labor Day as a celebration of entrepreneurs and business owners, rather than workers.

    “Today, we celebrate those who have taken a risk, worked hard, built a business and earned their own success,” the conservative congressman said in a statement. “I am committed to keeping taxes low and reducing red tape to make it easier for Virginia’s small business owners to start hiring again, create more jobs and ensure a thriving economy for the future so more people can achieve the American dream.”

    However, Labor Day actually celebrates the victories of trade and labor organizations in the United States, who fought for 8-hour work days and other standards that most Americans take for granted.The first Labor Day was organized by the Central Labor Union of New York City in 1882, according to the Department of Labor. Other labor organizations across the country quickly adopted the celebration.

    In 1894, Congress made the celebration a federal holiday. “The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy,” the Department of Labor explains. “It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker.”

      On Labor Day, GOP Leadership Celebrates Management

        “On Labor Day, GOP Leadership Celebrates Management”

        Amazing! Eric Cantor and his corporate backers have absolutely no respect for working class people. The question that is never asked of the GOP is: Can business people survive without working class consumers? Henry Ford knew better. If the working class could not afford to buy cars his auto business was doomed. I don’t care how creative and risk taking you are as a businessman/businesswoman. If you have no non business owning customers your business is not likely to be a success. I personally have zero respect of businesses that depend on the largess of local, state and federal governments.

    I’m sick of lying Republicans, worthless Economists and the Tea Party pawns. But to me, none of them are as egregious as the Democrats and Independents who initially supported President Obama and have now joined the chorus of those who constantly criticize and declare their disappointment.

    On any given day, one can read an assortment of critiques of President Obama about everything from Afghanistan to Zawahiri. The Internet is overrun with Monday morning Presidents. I for one have had enough. I’d almost reached the point where I dreaded reading the so-called news accounts, which have little to do with actual events, but are more often than not opinions parading as facts. And the comments, forget about it…I just don’t have time for the crazy.

    Then I found this site called the Obama diary. What a treat! It’s a wonderfully uplifting experience! The writings, the comments, the passion, wit and wisdom are all Pro-Obama. Thank you Geezus! I don’t know why I was deprived of such wonder, then again, I’m always a day late and a dollar short. Don’t get me wrong, there are many excellent sites, but more often than not, they carry a variety of themes; that includes my own. But the Obama diary is pure positive Obama goodness.

    I’m addicted; so hooked, I can’t go a few hours without visiting. It is my mood-altering drug: that boost I get in the morning not unlike the jolt I get from my first cup of coffee. I won’t be posting during the Convention, but I wanted to share this with you. So when the Obama bashing gets to be too much, I suggest you visit too.

    the Obama diary will keep you Fired Up and Ready to Go!

She really has made this site a very lively and down to earth site. Smart and serious people can still take time to let their hair down and act human on this site.

    Energized Black Caucus Cheers on the President

    Members of the Democratic National Committee’s Black Caucus gathered from across the country in the Charlotte Convention Center on Monday morning, celebrating their enthusiasm and support for President Obama. In an electric room, more than 500 caucus members cheered along to the chant of “Fired Up! Ready to Go!” Speakers from civil rights hero Rev. Jesse Jackson to National Operation Vote’s Michael Blake energized the crowd. “In 2008 we changed the guard,” Blake declared. “In 2012 we guard the change.”

    Many speechmakers emphasized the need to get out the vote and protect the vote in the face of new restrictions to voter eligibility. “It all flows from the right to vote,” Rev. Jackson said. “This land is our land and we’re not going back!” CNN correspondent and Voting Rights Institute Chair Donna Brazile continued on the theme. “We owe it to Fannie Lou, to Dr. King, we owe it to them to get out the vote, protect the vote, and make sure every vote counts,” Brazile said. “There are 30 states that will try to deny every eligible citizen the right to vote. This is not a black thing or a brown thing—this is an American thing.”

    Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz touted the President’s policy achievements in health and education that benefit African Americans and other communities. During the current Administration, she said, more than $1.3 billion has been invested in historically black colleges and universities and the doubling of Pell Grant funding has benefitted many Black college students. Also, the Affordable Care Act “has given seven million more African Americans access to quality and affordable health care,” Rep. Schultz said.

    Former NBA All-Star and current Mayor of Sacramento Kevin Johnson proved a crowd favorite. He regaled the crowd with stories of his time on the court with President Obama. “The interesting thing about this President—he’s a cool dude, too,” Mayor Johnson said. “Who do you know as a president can shoot some hoops or croon some Al Green? Or a President who can slow jam the news? This is what we got!”

You can’t afford to have it die on you at the height of this memorable occasion! Are you wearing the red dancing shoes, or the blue one? We have to be able to recognize you when you start kicking up your heels. And, whatever you do, don’t cry just when the Pres comes on stage or you might not be able to see him clearly so that you can give us an accurate report on whether his tie hung rightward or leftward, plus others might start to cry too. No blubbering, please. /Okay, I think I remember all of the things to warn her about /

    A friend called earlier and she said Ann Romney’s faux chant, “I love you, women,” during her convention speech, was totally wrong on so many levels. She said “substitute another group for women,” such as “I love you, Hispanics” or ” … Jewish people.” You get the drill.

    I’d still like even one woman to surface to say she is a close personal friend for life of Ann Romney.

        Did smiley decline the request? I didn’t see his name on the list of speakers. I can only guess that Pres. Obama offered him the opportunity because he has always taken the high road with those who disagree with him. Also, tavis would end his career if he spoke negatively about the POTUS at the convention. He could only say positive things or he’d be booed out of the place.

    Yelling said Obama didn’t focus on jobs but Healthcare, What was the first bill he pass?
    Yelling doing a snow job on Obama lies lies and more lies

  39. September 3, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Cnn is nasty, they did a good feeling report on mitt, and a not so nice report on Obama, they are being tricky with the truth on Obama, Making it seem like it was Obama fault that he and the ratpublican can’t agree on bills

    Do you think that Romney touched anyone, hugged anyone, took a photo with anyone in Louisianna last Friday?

      YOU wanna be hugged by Mitt? Nope and no one else. Anne fakes it and you KNOW that for sure!!!

        Maybe that’s why she doesn’t run a comb through her hair.

        Never see pictures of any GOP rallies either – guess that is so they can lie about the numbers. I remember John McCain rallies with his wife always on stage – does Miss Ann do rallies?

    HAHAHA! Look at all the money they pissed away. Think of all the good we could have done with that money…instead of trying to BUY an election.

      It’s awful isn’t it? Wasted money that could have been used to rebuild the states infrastructure or for schools. Just makes a person sick.

      I am however SUPER impressed that the good people of Pennsylvania are unfazed by all the horrible Koch and Rove lies and are sticking with POTUS. It’s truly rather remarkable that in the midst of some tough times there that they aren’t buying the bullshit.

        Agreed. 100% So glad the good people of PA saw through all this malarky.

        it would be interesting to see a breakdown of where that money goes. some to tv stations, and the pockets of the owners, but where else? it’s a lot of money, and it’s making an impact somewhere.

    Yellin is trying to make Obama look bad, She doing mitt jobs trying to bring Obama down.

    I don’t like Jessica Yellin’s report. This is all about tensions, conflict. Much focus on the negative. Dramatic music. LOTS of time devoted to the opposition. God they’ve just shown Vilma Heart “I’m tired of defending you”.

    Well, still ten minutes to go. A few good moments but the narrative is all about opposition and conflict.

    While Gloria Borger’s work was simply an infomercial about Romney.

    I’m so mad I’m yelling at the tv.

    • September 3, 2012 at 8:57 pm

      Are the statements made in that article about VP Biden correct? I’d not heard any of that before.

      What the ???? Romney’s operatives are throwing to distance themselves from Ryan’s lies ? Ryan had a reputation of exaggeration, lying ???? Well, first time I’m hearing this. We’ve been told over and over again that Ryan has a reputation of “honesty”, “seriousness”.

      Ryan is hurting the ticket and some Romney operatives are in damage control mode.

      As for the bits about Joe Biden, the accusations are an exaggeration. Joe made a couple of mistakes in his life but he doesn’t have a bad reputation in DC.

      Jeezzz ….

      Check that. Click on the picture in the article and it opens up a slideshowwith bunch of pictures (300) — some of PBO, some at the DNC, and (ugh!) some of Paul Ryan. I didn’t go through all of them.

    So Rachel decided that she wanted to stir up the “right to work” stuff today before the DNC convention. Did she and Chris Hayes send each other memos?

    What Ho TOD Peeps! Happy Labor Day!! Hellooooo Miz Chips!! Ecstatic to see you back and at full throttle 🙂

    Did anyone else see Stephanie Cutter on the Today Show beautifully push back on the “are we better off” stupidity? I couldn’t find the clip on NBC’s website but the dreaded dailykos had a post about it along with the clip of Stephanie’s interview with the woman that replaced Ann Curry. Watch below. Hits it out of the park (as usual) lays it at the GOP’s feet. I’m trying to figure out how to just tweet the clip…
