      Hi Henry, I took a trip to Ireland 2 years ago. It was fantastic. My maiden name is McCarthy and my Mom also has Irish roots. Yet my great grandfather married an Native American which is really different since his Dad’s trip from Ireland to here was paid by the US Army to fight Indians. Talk about inner turmoil! Your Country is beautiful!

    2nd attempt successful ——(altho they were still having computer probs)——I voted for President Barack Obama for POTUS today!—-so did mr. dotster——2 more votes in the can in non-critical Illinois—-but still—–great satisfaction touching that little circle next to his name—–I said “Yahoo!” as I was doing it too—–other olds in the room looked at me like I was goofy—–probably couldn’t imagine anyone being that excited about her vote——I just smiled and waved back at them. Mr. dotster was kindof embarrassed (he knew someone there) but he’s mostly used to it by now—-not really surprised by my joyful outburst.

    Just a local report from NC. My uncle, and my ex parents in law went to vote today. Yes I said ex parents in law lol but we have a cordial relationship. I encouraged all three to go vote today and gave them their location. They reported quite a bit of activity and a long line. I am amazed because like I said more people who I know in NC are early voting “earlier” and more enthusiastically then they did in 2008. One of my friends works at the voting location in NC and just put on her page that people need to come out and vote.

    Really like PBO’s final rally speech–it’s tight, covers everything he needs to address and contains some humor. Sharp contrast with the little bit of Mitbot’s I saw on Bashir today where he’s trying to convince folks of his “surge”. Hah! Demver is what a surge looks like! Forward!

Re Gloria Allred – this will be like a red rag to a bull for all those women who have been screwed over in divorce negotiations by their husbands. It doesn’t matter if its been for millions or for half of the family car any woman who has been taken advantage of like that (and there are many – including I’m sure Republicans) will be steaming. I think its a big deal and hope it gets lots more traction. Big hugs to all who are working so hard yo GOTV – wish I was there and able to help.

    President Obama says he never expected to have a big lead in the race against Mitt Romney, but that he has an edge in truth-telling.

    “You guys have some short memories. Folks in your business were writing me off a year ago, saying there was no way I would win,” Obama said Wednesday in an interview with NBC News’s Brian Williams conducted at the start of the president’s two-day, eight-state campaign swing, in response to a question about why the president doesn’t have a bigger lead. “So, you know, these things go in ebbs and flows.”

    “The one thing I’ve tried always to be is just steady in terms of what I believe in, who I’m fighting for,” he said. “I think that one of the qualities I bring to bear in this campaign is people see what did I say I was going to do in 2008 and what have I delivered. And they can have some confidence that the things I say, I mean.”

    • 98 pkayden
      October 24, 2012 at 6:02 pm

      I remember very well when the media kept saying that President Obama was going to have a hard time winning because of the economy and unemployment rate. They’ve always tried to underestimate him.

    Finally caught up after a day away. Can I just say that I LOVE the diversity of all the women and men who have introduced PBO in his various campaign speeches (of which I’ve watched nearly all).

    Mr. Blondgrrl & I voted straight dem ticket in September here in Wisconsin via absentee ballot – we are celebrating our 40th anniversary on a hiking trip to Nepal and Tibet. That’s the good news; the bad news is we are going to be so remote we might not find out about the election for several days. Keep up the great work TODers – thanks Chips for this great site. Luckily for us we will be traveling with fellow Dems so we will all be trying to get the election news. I have high hopes that Wisconsin is going to go all the way for the President and that we will also elect Tammy Baldwin to the Senate. Leaving on Friday so only a few more hours of TOD to carry me though for several weeks. #Forward2012

      My husband and I have voted in a rural township – about a half-hour’s drive from Eau Claire. The RNC is hitting our area hard. We get at least two calls from them a day, which we don’t answer. Today they left a message providing the street address of our rural town hall and an encouragement to vote early, along with a message about how President Obama has devastated the economy. So now they’re doing some very targeted calls.

        The GOP are really putting money out there in Wisconsin – I’m in a reliably red area near Eagle River, but even so the Dem campaign headquarters here is thriving. Lots of GOP commercials on TV, many more than DEM.

And perhaps those of us who don’t tweet can throw out ideas to go with the hashtag to keep this going. I’ll be happy to start if anyone wants to tweet it:-)

    Don’t know if anyone has posted this here already. It was in my Inbox…from Dr. Maya Angelou 🙂

    I am not writing to you as a black voter, or a woman voter, or as a voter who is over 70 years old and six feet tall. I am writing to you as a representative of this great country — as an American.

    It is your job to vote. It is your responsibility, your right, and your privilege. You may be pretty or plain, heavy or thin, gay or straight, poor or rich.

    But remember this: In an election, every voice is equally powerful — don’t underestimate your vote. Voting is the great equalizer.

    Voting has already begun in some states that President Obama needs to win. So please use this handy tool to make sure your friends in those key states know where to cast their ballot. You will be doing them a great favor.

    As a country, we can scarcely perceive the magnitude of our progress.

    My grandmother and my uncle experienced circumstances that would break your heart. When they went to vote, they were asked impossible questions like, “How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?” When they couldn’t answer, they couldn’t vote.

    I once debated with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. about whether an African American would ever be elected president. He believed it would happen within the next 40 years at the time — I believed it would never happen within my lifetime.

    I have never been happier to have been proven wrong.

    And since President Barack Obama’s historic election, we’ve moved forward in courageous and beautiful ways. More students can afford college, and more families have access to affordable health insurance. Women have greater opportunities to get equal pay for equal work.

    Yet as Rev. King wrote, “All progress is precarious.”

    So don’t sit on the sidelines. Don’t hesitate. Don’t have any regrets. Vote.

    Go, rise up, and let your friends and family in early vote states know where they can vote today. We must make our voices heard:

    http://my.barackobama.com/Help-Your-Friends-Vote-Early

    Your vote is not only important. It’s imperative.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Maya Angelou

    P.S. — Not on Facebook? Send your friends to vote.barackobama.com — don’t let technology get in the way of your incredible duty to our democracy.

      Thanks, DF, for sharing Dr. Maya Angelou’s powerful e-mail. I received the same e-mail and forwarded it to friends and family members. I was 19 years (almost 20) when the Voting Rights Act was signed in to law in 1965. I distinctly remember stories told by older black people about the hardships they endured trying to vote. I also remember people who lost their lives in the struggle to regain the right to vote that had supposedly been guaranteed by both the 14th (1868) and the 15th (1870) Amendments. I also studied the long history of women’s struggle to gain the right to vote that culminated in the passage of the19th Amendment (1920). And, the fact that 18 years old men could be drafted and sent to wars while they were denied the right to vote led to the movement that gave us the 26th Amendment (1971). Thus young people, who were deemed old enough to go fight and die for the country, finally won the right to participate in selecting leaders who would make decisions to send them to war. To be honest, I have no respect for people who denigrate voting but still continue to complain about how terrible the system is.

    Just watched the first part of the Brian Williams interview and you could just tell that Pres. Obama was thinking, “Brian Williams, you are a dumb ass.”

  46. October 24, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    President Obama on Wednesday made an “off the record” stop for lunch at Antonella’s Pizzeria in Davenport, Iowa, joined by three local women who are longtime campaign volunteers; all were precinct captains in 2007.  The President’s visit to the city was the first stop on the 48-hour America Forward! “campaign marathon,” and followed a rally with a crowd of about 3,500 at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds.  (Above: A photo of the President at lunch, tweeted by the Campaign)

    The President sat with his guests at a table covered with a red-and white checked cloth in the middle of the dimly-lit restaurant.  He enjoyed a ten-inch “The Works” pizza ($12), with sausage, pepperoni, onion, mushroom and green peppers–and left off the ham that is standard on the dish, according to Gitana “Coco” Sierra, the very excited waitress who served the Eater in Chief.  He also had the house salad–the “Insalate,” which is greens with tomatoes ($12) and an iced tea ($1.50) and water that he “barely touched.”

    The President ate all but two of the slices in his 8-slice pie, and left “a fabulous” tip after lunch, Sierra said.  She declined to say how much, but said the President paid the bill in cash.  He also tried to calm his over-the-moon server, who is 32 and has worked at the eatery since June.

    “I was very, very nervous, and extremely excited,” Sierra said.  “I am a big supporter of Obama, so that made it even worse.”

    Another Inbox treat:)

    My name is Mike McCready, and I play guitar in Pearl Jam. I also have Crohn’s Disease, a chronic, life-threatening condition—and twice in recent years I’ve been denied by insurance for treatment my doctor said I needed.

    That’s why I am such a big supporter of ObamaCare—and why on Election Day I will only vote for candidates who support it.

    Just think—if someone like me has trouble getting the coverage I need, what’s it like for everyone else? Will you take the pledge too?

    Click here to sign the petition to vote for candidates who support ObamaCare.

    With the resources that come from being in a successful rock band, I’ve been able to fight back and get the coverage I need. But not everyone is so lucky.

    I think about all the kids I’ve met with Crohn’s and other chronic illnesses and I know that without ObamaCare many of them will not receive the health care they need.

    Some candidates say they want to repeal ObamaCare but would still protect folks with pre-existing conditions. Don’t count on it. We had to fight for years to get these protections. If they go away now, it will be virtually impossible to get them back.

    Click here to pledge to vote only for candidates who support Obamacare—and then urge your friends to sign as well.

    Beginning January 1, 2014, ObamaCare will prevent insurance companies from denying health insurance to people with pre-existing conditions.

    ObamaCare also expands our right to appeal insurance company denials for payment or coverage. Because of this process, an external review board was able to overturn denials from my insurance company for life-supporting treatments of my disease on two occasions.

    Under ObamaCare, every American will have the right to appeal to an Independent Review Organization that can overturn their insurer’s decision. Insurance companies will no longer have the final word.
    Election Day is in just two weeks. Please pledge to vote to ensure that all Americans receive access to health care coverage and then send this email to your friends and urge them to sign as well.

    Click here to pledge to vote only for candidates who support Obamacare.

    Thanks!
