    This Rolling Stone interview is a must read. Pres. Obama covers everything from Romney, Paul Ryan and Ayn Rand, Historic Accomplishments, The Personal, Halloween Costume For Romney, Healthcare, His Vision For The Future, The Auto Bailout etc. It’s brilliant.

    FIRST….after all the people above me! 😉 I have to confess that I’m yawning like crazy so I suspect I’ll just barely make it through the President’s next speech before having to call it a night. 😆

    This ad makes me super excited. Romney’s words are coming back to haunt him. First it was “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt” and then the “47%”

      Ohio, President Obama stood up for you when no one else would. Now, it’s time for you to stand up for him. What a wonderful ad. I’m sure it is being shown in Ohio.

      Hi Chips and my TOD family. Hope all is well with all of you. I am still kicking. Moving and staying focus. Tired, but a very good and worthy tired.

      I am just getting back to open my computer, and Chips is doing a terrific job. However, I contacting my TOD family here because I just received an email from Sen. Boxer about the Senate races. She stated in the email that: “If the Republicans win just 4 seats, we lose our Democratic majority.” Please go to this site and do what you can. They will match your $5.00, 3-to-1.


      Love you all.HZ

      • October 25, 2012 at 7:26 pm

        Lovely to hear from you HZ, I hope you’re taking good care of yourself. Thank you for letting us know about Sen Boxer’s email and the fundraising, you’re the best.

        HZ, Great to hear from you. I pray that you feel better each day. I got the same e-mail from our great Senator and will definitely send a contribution. I also made a very small contribution to your fund raiser for the President a couple of days ago. Take good care of yourself. Thanks for spreading so much love and inspiration.

      I am really convinced that President Obama will win all the states he won in 2008, except for Indiana. Indiana and North Carolina were the biggest surprise for me in 2008. I think the biggest surprise of 2012 will be Arizona. I think the Latino/Hispanic voter turn out in Arizona will set records because Dr. Richard Carmona is running for the Senate. This may result in President Obama winning Arizona. Consequently, my prediction is that the President will win between 347 and 358 electoral votes. Basically about the same electoral votes he won in 2008.

    I remember the picture of Romney’s little grandson shaking PBO’s hand and how he had this look of admiration for him. I couldn’t shake my some times overactive imagination of him saying: “If I could vote I’d vote for you.”

    The Las Vegas speech:

  24. October 25, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    TOD Family it is really lively out here on the road and round people who are out early voting and the OBAMA?BIDEN STICKERS ARE EVERYWHERE. I keep the TV on in the sleeper to hear the latest and it is all good news been in the battleground states and Romney and His Wet behind the EARS Running mate are a total failure among women of all walks of life.The Talking heads are trying their best to sell those SNAKE OIL SALESMEN and it is not working no matter what they say. I’ll be rolling all the way east until the weekend before election day will stay just outside DC for election day to see the returns and watch our President keep doing the great job He has been doing.Also watch some the GREED OVER PEOPLE PARTY drivers cry at the different truck-stops who believe that bunch of liars who claim they love our country but do everything they can to bring it down just because we have a smart out going and loving President who cares about us all. He lives and walks the talk all the time and they can’t stand that the most.

    • October 25, 2012 at 8:01 pm

      Thanks for the report from the road, but most of all, it is great to hear from you. I was thinking few days ago that we haven’t ‘seen’ you in awhile or if you have been here, I’ve missed you. Stay safe out there!

    • October 25, 2012 at 8:04 pm

      Brilliant to hear from you Wesley, loved every beautiful word! Stay safe and keep in touch, forward!!

        I am with you, meta. I think the so called mainstream media may be in for a big surprise on Nov.6th. They are so glued to the past models of determining likely voters. I am absolutely sure that the election of 2012 is not going to resemble the election of 2010.

  28. October 25, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    Love the way they frequently include that Trump plane in ads like the ‘when no one was looking’ above 🙂

        I have had that feeling ever since seeing Elizabeth Warren do the original You didn’t build it video. I have been contributing to her campaign and Tammy Duckworth’s even though I live in OR. I want more competent women legislators to hold office. I mostly need to donate to keep PBO in office though and a little for Dems in Congress and the Senate. I donated this year instead of going on a trip since I really don’t have that much extra money.

        Me too Dudette, me too!! She has the same even temperament, the same intellectual curiosity, same backbone of steel as our President. I hope she runs, I will definitely support her. She fights for the middle class. But for right now…I want to enjoy these next four years.

      Yardarm, I am not sure if roaches would tolerate Ron Christie’s company. I think only maggots would associate with him. If Harriet Tubman were alive today she would know how to deal with people like Ron Christie.

    To All My TOD Family >Chipsticks and Desertflower,Tnmtngirl thanks for your notes I have missed being online to talk to you guys but as a trucking dad and granddad and Husband I have been really busy.With our little fleet of rigs we have been running crazy a new grand baby just got here on 10/03/2012 the night of the 1st debate and wonderful boy 10 pounds 7 ounces who is number three of the grand babies one for each sons now everybody is even but there is one beautiful grand daughter so that is why you guys have not been online.we have been switching trucks to keep things going for us all. The most surprising thing was my Loving Wife even took time behind the wheel and it shocked me when my son told me she took the short run from Houston to Dallas so he could stay at the hospital to see his son born.I thought she was home and found out that she had kept her papers up to date just in case. Talking about a surprised man and proud as hell so for those stupid fools in the GREED OVER PEOPLE PARTY to try and hold women back I got news for them from a man who knows you can’t stop a Lady when she sets her mind to get something done.They would get further in live if they would treat her with total respect you will always get more in life with this one true fact when Moma is happy you have more money and get more honey.
