      Hi everyone…

      If you are on Facebook please like Eva Longoria and support her as she is been seriously attacked and overwhelmed with rightwing hate on her Facebook page because of her support for President Obama…

      For some reason she leaves the abusive posts and lets the posters run roughshod on her…

    Vote folks! Vote!

              Jon is friends with Bill O’Reilly. So is Al Sharpton. However, neither Stewart or Sharpton allows for their friendship with O’Reilly to get in the way of speaking their mind. Jon kicked O’Reilly’s butt at a debate for charity here in DC. Sharpton called O’Reilly out on his show last year because O’Reilly said something very stupid and automatically expected Sharpton to back him up.

          Yes, Colbert shaved his head after Obama, in a video-taped message, told him to do so.

          And actually, Stephen, his wife, and one of his head writers at the time, were present at the White House when Obama filmed the message.

      I agree ut, but I don’t think he can do this show right now in all seriousness. Colbert’s character that he plays as a stupid dumbass republican would be difficult right now for PBO campaign. Alot of people don’t get Colberts character that he portrays in his show, and it could cause some issues for their campaign I feel.

      His bug seems to be how many emails he is getting about donation ? It’s easy asshole, just unsubscribe. When the other side is raking in citizens fucked corporate cash by busloads, this small donor thing is the one that gets your goat.

        No, Jon was totally kidding. And if he wasn’t supporting Obama he wouldn’t be getting the emails.

        I agree that Stewart’s bent is very much like the Daily Kos emoprogs of 2010 but tonight his only annoying question was about telecom security/rights which POTUS handled well. He actually asked some good questions like Letterman that allowed POTUS to outline his candidacy and reasons to vote for him in a light way that he cannot do on a typical stump speech. So it definitely serves a purpose for him to go on there to relate to young/hip and get them thinking that they maybe need to vote this year.

        I hear what you are saying about not watching it but trust me you will really like it if you change your mind.

          I have seen enough of his shows whining on and on about Obama campaign’s various grass root level fundraising. It’s an insult to the real people. And after the first debate, he went on a freakout while simultaneously mocking the freaking out of tweety and other klowns at msnbc. His 2010 both sides do it show was his peak stupidity. Many folks at bj call him the broder of comedy wrold and I agree with them.

It’s no different than saying you aren’t going to watch the debate because you don’t like Candy Crowley. The star of the debate was Barack Obama and the star of The Daily Show tonight was Barack Obama. 🙂

                Bravo, Amk! I am like you. I am truly sick of the two-faced so called Obama supporters with national megaphones! All they do is confuse people and promote cynicism. David Letterman is a comedian. He asks tough questions whenever the President appears on his show, but he respects the President and appreciates the tough reality President Obama inherited. In most cases, Jon Stewart just can’t wait to pounce on the President for any minor disagreements he may have with him. I am sorry, but I think Stewart’s desire to be accepted by Bill O’Reiley has distorted his views about the President.

                • 106 nabsentia23
                  October 19, 2012 at 1:11 pm

                  Stewart isn’t desperate for approval from O’Reilly. They’ve been friends for quite some time now. O’Reilly’s also friends with Al Sharpton.

                  Look, I’ve had a few conservative friends in my lifetime, too and still stayed liberal. I even got into political arguments with these friends from time to time. It’s no big deal and actually, this was the way Washington worked until the GOP decided to let the Tea Party take over and turned the party into a bunch of obstructionists.

                  Why blame Stewart for reaching across the aisle when the Professional Left has accused Obama of doing the exact same thing?

                  Here’s how I look at it. If Obama trusts Stewart enough to go on his show not just once or twice, but 3 times, then I don’t have a problem with it. Yes, Stewart interviewed has interviewed Obama 3 times. The first time was via video conferencing during the 2008 campaign.

I t merely feeds the pride of those throwing the dinner. I don’t blame FLOTUS for not going………she’s too smart to be there, and PBO doesn’t need her to keep him civil!!! He has such grace. I bet he’s glad that’s over. He has IMPORTANT things to do!
    Yes, he was of course GOOD on Jon Stewart. Stewart’s questions were fine, and PBO turned them to his own advantage. The audience LOVED the president!!! He made some very good points too. I still think most reporters could learn a lot about interviewing by watching the “comedians.”

    Sorry, long but important. Found this posted on Dashboard and thought that it was important to read and pass. I’ve asked for the link to this in the Denver Post….

    This needs to go viral. Please pass it along. Mirkin is a professor
    of psychology at Lasell College in MA.
    Romney in Mass.
    Wanted to share with you the column I sent to the Denver Post
    (Colorado is a swing state and virtually tied),
    Here I am, a resident of Massachusetts listening to my former Governor
    speak convincingly and with seeming conviction at the Denver debate.
    I was startled by my Déjà vu experience and by the assumptions held by
    my out-of-town friends about Mr. Romney’s governorship. So, as an
    editor and author of articles and texts about social and political
    contexts, I wanted to reach out to my distant neighbors in Colorado
    and share my understanding of Mr. Romney’s governorship and the
    implications for the Presidency. Massachusetts is known as a liberal
    state, but we often vote for Republican governors, and the three
    governors who immediately preceded Mr. Romney were Republicans. Mr.
    Romney was a one term governor who left office with a 31% approval
    rating, the 3rd lowest in the entire country. What does our
    experience in Massachusetts say to the country?
    Mr. Romney claims to have experience reaching across the aisle. Maybe
    he did do some reaching, but not much of it went toward the Democrats.
    In his first two years of office, he vetoed legislation at more than
    twice the rate of Republican predecessor Governor Weld. Governor
    Romney had a record 800 vetoes (most of which were overturned,
    sometimes unanimously). One example is when the legislature provided
    a budget amendment to stop contracting with companies that outsource
    state work to other countries. Governor Romney vetoed the provision.
    This meant that he supported outsourcing jobs at the expense of U.S.
    workers. He also started a huge campaign to unseat Democratic
    legislators, but failed and ended up with even fewer Republican seats
    than before he took office.
    Governor Romney correctly claims that Massachusetts rose to #1 in
    education—but it was based on former Governor Weld’s education reform
    plan. Governor Romney moved in the opposite direction–he vetoed bills
    that would have strengthened preschool education.
    However, the issue is not so much how he voted, but that Mr. Romney
    won the governorship by presenting himself in one way, as a social and
    fiscal moderate (some saw him as a social progressive), and by the end
    of his single term, he had acted in an entirely different way. He said
    during his campaign that he favored stem cell research and then vetoed
    a bill to fund it. He argued for a lower minimum wage than the state
    legislature ended up passing (over his veto). He vetoed a bill funding
    hate crimes prevention, and took back money approved by a former
    Republican governor for a bullying prevention program. He denied all
    requests for commutations and pardons, including one from a soldier
    serving in Iraq whose was convicted at age 13 for a BB gun incident.
    He vetoed emergency contraception. He raised many fees in my
    state—even quadrupling the gasoline delivery fees.
    Governor Romney certainly approved some pieces of legislation that I
    did support but that does not change a major problem: Mr. Romney
    re-created himself and changed his positions during the first
    Presidential debate in your city because he must sound more moderate
    in order to win the independent vote. After that, all bets are off. We
    in Massachusetts know all about that. We elected a governor expecting
    him to be one thing and then he did something totally different and
    got on the national stage. He entered the governorship with a 61%
    approval rating and left with an abysmal 31% and with many of us
    scratching our heads and wondering whom we elected. The difference
    between then and now is that you have Mr. Romney’s speeches and
    positions from this past year and the contradictions during the
    debate. You can get nonpartisan information from factcheck.org. And,
    you now know what he was like in Massachusetts. So, I hope the country
    doesn’t have to go through what Massachusetts went through. Regardless
    of your political beliefs, this constant turning into something we
    didn’t vote for is no way to run a state, never mind a country.

    GM everyone. I am glad that Bill Press is devoting parts of his show to the unreliable gallup polls, and telling folks who are panicking to chill. I was once again shocked that Rachel mentioned the gallup poll yesterday on her show.

    I wonder have the big bad Tagg responded to Lawrence O’Donnell yet? If Tagg is going to swing at someone for calling his dad a liar, he will be swinging for the rest of his life. Because a heck of alot of people think Tagg’sdad is a bold face liar, and I am one of them.

    One line which stuck with me is when Clinton said were he comes from if someone have your back when you are down, you have their back when they need you. It was something like that. But I hope the people of Ohio don’t forget, which one help their state from losing many of jobs.

    Okay tuned my absentee ballot over a week ago. Checked on line and they have received it. On line they say it cost 65 cents to returned the ballot. I enclosed mine in another envelope and it cost $1.30. So please check with your local USPS for mailing cost.

    I’m here in FL and we especially need to encourage everyone to vote early and to vote absentee. You can go to the Supervisor of Ekections office and cast an absentee ballot now. The wait in line on November 06 will be very long. The ballot is three pages legal size front and back.

    Gallup polling is fishy. They were considered reputable before now. They are creating a narrative to support a potential theft of votes. This is why we must vote early and we must vote in great numbers.

    The president is scheduled to deliver remarks at a campaign rally at George Mason University. According to a campaign statement, he will “discuss the clear choice facing women in this election and his commitment to strengthening economic security for women and their families and giving women more control over their personal health care decisions.”

    It just killed Charles Todd and David Gregory to have to report the good news for Obama on the NBC polls on Ia. and Wi. so they both wrapped up their reports on Today with accusatory words about Libya. Todd looked especially smug and hateful as he said, “What did he know and when did he know it?” and “You can bet this is going to come up at the debate Monday.” Todd is so transparent in his personal animosity toward Obama. He is unpalatable—-in every way.

      It’s these media pundiots who gave Willard the idea to try to use Libya to embarrass the President on Tuesday. Unfortunately for Romney, President Obama is aware of the MSM’s talking points that they receive from the RNC/Rove/Koch and he will will waiting for them come Tuesday.

    For those of you who still brave Old Orange from time to time, Jimmy Kimmel did an experiment asking people on the street who they thought won the “First Lady Debate” (Michelle Obama or Ann Romney). Now of course, there’s no such debate, and YET people responded as if they had seen the First Lady Debate.

    Please note that only 1 out of the 4 people he showed thought that Miss Ann had won – and her reason for thinking so was just plain ridiculous!
