    My sister who lives in Charlotte NC was at an OFA campaign office volunteering and to their surprise Dr. Jill Biden and her daughter showed up. My sister called me super excited and said that she took tons of photos. I am waiting on her to send them to me via email.

    On another note she said that she has been getting robo calls telling her that she is “not registered to vote,” and trying to tell her stuff to do although she early voted the first day of early voting in NC lmao…

    Sometimes Frum makes a funny! I say “sometimes” because I rarely peak at his writings or TV appearances. Here’s his words to his people come next Wednesday morning:

    “If Romney loses the election on Tuesday, we’ll hear a lot of after the fact talk about how he lost because he was too moderate, inauthentic, not a real conservative, etc. etc. etc.

    Here’s my test and challenge to those who will say this:

    We’re now heading into the climactic weekend of the election. If you believe a “real conservative” message is a winner, shouldn’t you right now be publicly urging Mitt Romney to say out loud : YES I will cut taxes for the rich, YES I will cut Medicaid, YES I will reinvent Medicare as a voucher system, YES I will favor a human life amendment to ban abortion in all cases, YES I believe it’s a major priority to reverse same-sex marriage, YES i was right to say let the auto industry go bankrupt, NO I don’t believe in global warming, NO I don’t think it’s important we cover the uninsured, NO I think we have enough immigrants already, NO I won’t withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan, NO I don’t think we should provide the existing level of food stamps and income support to the unemployed, etc. etc. etc.

    Shouldn’t you be urging Romney to remind Americans that Obama is an alien, a radical, somebody bent on destroying everything good and decent in America?

    If that’s the winning message, shouldn’t you be pleading with Romney to say it now?”

    Booman tells them to get off his lawn come Wednesday:

    “We here in Pennsylvania welcome Paul Ryan and his Sith Overlord to the Keystone State for some last minute campaigning. It is a tradition that Republicans convince themselves that they can win Pennsylvania and visit us during the last four days of election season. Poppy did it in 1992, Dole did it in 1996, Dubya did it in 2004, and McCain did it in 2008. None of them won the hearts and minds of Pennsylvanians. We rejected them all, just as we will reject Mitt Romney. And then we never want to see him again. Like, ever. In any context. Not even on the Charlie Rose Show. Just get lost and don’t come back and stay off of the television and don’t write stupid op-eds about who you think should go broke. We’ve had enough. You are a very unpleasant man and we are tired of you.

    So, welcome to Pennsylvania. I hope you enjoy our beautiful fall colors. Grab yourself a sandwich. But, come Wednesday, you better be gone, and gone for good.”

    “I am sure it is just a coincidence that the polls are only beginning to discover that no one likes Mitt Romney on the last weekend of the campaign. His campaign should have collapsed a month ago, but it was kept on oxygen by unprincipled pollsters and a dying media desperate for eyeballs.”

      “…a dying media desperate for eyeballs.โ€ That is the most accurate sentence about our current media–not they are in the tank for this or that candidate. They like their money more than they like their country. Again, for prospective, watch the movie NETWORK from the 70’s. It’s been down hill for a looong time.

    Much of his time is devoted to writing: “I am always working on something, even now. But I can’t tell you about it. I believe in superstitions. You don’t talk about a child who hasn’t been born.”

    He did, however, agree to disclose an interesting project that will resume after the presidential elections in the United States. “[President Barack] Obama and I decided to write a book together, a book of two friends,” he says.

    Wiesel became friends with Obama in 2009, a few months after the Democratic candidate was elected. Obama’s staff invited Wiesel to join the president on a visit to the site of Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany. Wiesel had first arrived at the camp at the end of World War II, with his father and other prisoners, following a death march from Auschwitz. His mother and his younger sister were murdered there, while Wiesel and his father, who did forced labor there, survived; his father died at Buchenwald. Only Wiesel and two of his sisters were still alive at the liberation.

    When Obama concluded his remarks at Buchenwald, he whispered to Wiesel, “The last word has to be yours here.” Choking with tears, Wiesel made an impromptu speech in which he said to Obama, “Mr. President, we have such high hopes for you, because you, with your moral vision of history, will be able and compelled to change this world into a better place … You are our last hope.”

    Since then, he adds, the two have become good friends and he is occasionally invited to dinner by the president: “We talk about philosophy, contemplation, thought, but never about politics. He is a thinking person, a person with depth and intellectual curiosity.”

    Do you never talk about Israel?

    “From time to time we also mention Israel. He is critical about some things – but show me any president who has not been. I try to explain to him the meta-historical aspect of what is happening in Israel and of the Jewish destiny. I have faith in him. You can talk to him. He is a good listener.”

    Actually, Wiesel and Obama first met many years ago, when Wiesel was invited to lecture at the California college in which Obama was a student. “Your lecture has stayed with me to this day,” the president told him years later. “When I heard that, my pulse went up,” Wiesel says. “I told myself that I have to be careful, because I can never know whether anyone in the audience will be a future president.”


    • November 2, 2012 at 5:27 pm

      Good for Elie, but there willl always be a stain on his character because of his opposition to recognition in the Holocaust Memorial museum of the suffering of the Roma at the hands of the Nazis. I admired him endlessly until I read Bury Me Standing by Isabel Fonseca, never felt the same about him again. But good, the Israel lobby is all powerful.

    A Question: Isn’t a US citizen required to get a visa to enter/exit Russia? This is regarding Romney fils’ visit to Russia:

    “The Russian Embassy in Washington said it was unaware of the trip. ‘We havenโ€™t got any information about Mr. Romney and his visit to Moscow,’ said Yevgeny Khorishko, an embassy spokesman. โ€œHe didnโ€™t inform us about his visit.โ€

    Despite the fact he endorsed PBO, Bloomberg is such a complete ass. I feel so bad for the people on Staten Island. Of course, they don’t know the reason there hasn’t been help earlier is that their lovely mayor, Michael Bloomberg, REJECTED help from FEMA the Saturday before the storm hit and told them to go elsewhere. Accordingly, there were no FEMA supplies or workers prepositioned for the city of NY. I am cynical enough to beolieve that part of his endorsement for PBO was done with the hope that the Obama Administration will not point this out to the people of his city who are so desperate due his mistake in judgment.

    Hey Tweeters, can you please start hitting the MSM on their failure to report that the city is lacking in FEMA help is due to the fact that BLOOMBERG rejected FEMA aid last Saturday and told them to go elsewhere? These nightly reports of no help are hurting and no one is to blame but Bloomberg, NOT the federal government. There was no prestaging of personnel and supplies because Bloomberg told Craig Fugate he did not want their help.

    A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, walked up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said,โ€ I would like to buy some cyanide.”
    The pharmacist asked,โ€ Why in the world do you need cyanide?”
    The lady replied, “I need it to poison my husband.”
    The pharmacist’s eyes got big and he exclaimed, “Lord have mercy! I can’t give you cyanide to kill your husband. That’s against the law! I’ll lose my license! They’ll throw both of us in jail!All kinds of bad things will happen. Absolutely not! You CANNOT have any cyanide!”
    The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist’s wife.

          Accusing Valerie Jarrett of something, but don’t know what it was she was accusing Ms. Jarrett of. President Obama is spending his tax dollars, when the guy ask him to name something the President was spending his tax money on that he didn’t want him to be spending it on, he couldn’t name a thing. And the lady with the coo-coo hair, Obama is a Muslim but he attended that church for twenty years. Obama didn’t bring the country together, being the first black President he had the chance, but he fail to do so. That is so dam stupid. Why should it fall on Obama shoulder to bring the country together, why didn’t Bush 1 or 2 bring the country together? I’m sorry but I am so thankful I don’t run into people like that.

      NPR did a thorough “debunking” of the conspiracy theory about Pratt Romney (or whatever Romney’s son is called) owning voting machines. They called it an outright lie, and then spent six minutes laying out a defense that absolutely raised more questions that it answered – including the fact that members of the Board of the company that owns the machines are bundlers for Romney… Not a very good defense – but what was striking was the fact that I’ve never heard NPR make a vigorous debunk of all the right wing conspiracy theories put forward by the GOP against President Obama – including this offensive Benghazi garbage.

    President Barack Obama has edged back in front of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney in Colorado, but the race remains a statistical tie, according to the results of the last Denver Post poll.

    Obama leads Romney by two percentage points in the poll, 47 percent to 45 percent. That reverses a one-point lead Romney held in a poll released in October. A poll in September showed Obama with a one-point lead on Romney.

    All the results have been within the polls’ margins or error, which for this survey is 3.8 percent.

    Most significant in the results, the poll shows Obama winning among people who say they have already cast a ballot, 49 percent to 46 percent. Voters who say they plan to vote before Election Day also swing toward Obama, 45 percent to 42 percent.

    Voters planning to cast a ballot on Election Day break for Romney, 47 percent to 42 percent.

      However, I think I have to oppose her “voting is easy”. What I have seen of early voting this year (or voting in the US in previous election years) – it is not easy.

      Voting in the Netherlands is easy. I ride (my bicycle) up to the voting place at 7:30 in the morning. There is no line; I show my ID (necessary to have with you anyway); they check my name on the list; I take the ballot, vote and return it into the box. 2 Minutes max.

      Then I bike on to work (being 40 minutes late because normally I leave at 7 a.m.).

      Voting in an old and large democracy like the US with 230+ years of experience is.to.damn.hard.

    I’ve been looking at the baby photos – which highlight so perfectly everything that is good about PBO and everything that is bad about Mitt Romney. Why is a man, who has had 5 children, and been a wannabe politician for 20 years, unable to lovingly hold a babe??

    Every parent in the country should be having a very long thought about someone who demonstrates every day his love for children & someone who dismisses them as not worthy of his time.

    • 280 majiir

        I think it’s more than that – Romney sees nothing positive AT ALL in being a friend to a babe or a child. I have never been know as the world’s best Mom – probably trending in the other direction – but a babe’s head on the shoulder – or a child’s look of unconditional love – that is something every person should see and love – Mitt Romney does not.

    Hey, wait a minute! This was the same thread I left on, just after the President gave his thank yous. Hmmm. maybe I haven’t missed as much as I thought. That’s good. I’ll tell you about my adventure anyway.

    Evening TODobots! Finally made it back! Harumph! Iโ€™ve got to say, I donโ€™t know if itโ€™s because I missed 85% of todayโ€™s action here that my mind decided to find its own excitement, but it sure did.

    Dreaming of replacing my upper flooring with hardwood, I noticed thereโ€™s an auction tomorrow and was making plans to attend. You may not know, but I flirt with optimism from time to time, so I decided to clean one side of the garage to store my bargain, juuussst in case. At about the time President O started his 5pm speech, I got two young helpers and started moving stuff around, making slow but noticeable progress through my accumulated mess. Well, wouldnโ€™t you know, two moments after I sent each off in different directions (probably just when the president was about to slap the podium) I slapped pulled on the wrong piece of wood, and wham I was on my back on the floor with two (pressure board) 5-shelf wall units (connected on the sides) on top of me and the contents strewn all around. They had been mounted on the wall โ€“ to help keep stuff off the floor, you know? Talk about shock! Fortunately nothing was broken or strained. I was banged in the head by the top of one unit and got a good jar on the bum, but seem okay otherwise. The boys came quickly at the ruckus and were able to lift the units off me.

    Needless to say, the big garage cleaning was not completed as efficaciously as I would have liked and whether or not I make it to tomorrowโ€™s auction remains to be seen. In truth not only because of the โ€˜dramaโ€™, but also because the rental van I thought was reserved for me seemed, when I phoned to verify pickup, to have been given to someone else even though I have an order number. Sooooo, there you have it TODobots, you neednโ€™t think action doesnโ€™t find me when Iโ€™m offline for hours! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜†

                My doc is out of commission until Monday, and calling her number gets a recording that says if it’s an emergency go to the hospital emergency, or something like that.

          Don’t worry, Dudette and LunarS, I will. The thought of being out of commission for Tuesday is incentive enough for me not to play around if I don’t feel right tomorrow. I already booked the days off my on-call job so I’d be able to concentrate on the President and not have to be half listening in case I was needed.

But, if you’re not feeling any of the following – you’re probably ok (from the MayoClinic site): Headache or a feeling of pressure in the head, Temporary loss of consciousness, Confusion or feeling as if in a fog, Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event, Dizziness or “seeing stars”, Ringing in the ears, Nausea or vomiting, Slurred speech, Fatigue.

      I am tired, but I can’t sleep. I am just going to sleep when I can and wait out our celebration for Nov. 6.

      I received a goodbye email from Rufus at OFA. Midnight is so important. Can I get some more friends to go to my FR Page, please. I only need $82.00 to finish out before midnight. Love you for any amount.(((((HZ)))))

      I really hope this is correct. I know it is on the sidebar here under Donate 2012.

      If I had to wait 5 hours to vote – I truly wouldn’t vote – in my world 30 minutes is seen as excessive. Apart from anything else – why don’t they have more poll workers, voting machines (if they must use machines) – it is truly crazy that a state of a democracy such as the USA makes it really really difficult for people to vote

      What will he not do
      โ€œI wonโ€™t spend my effort trying to pass partisan legislation thatโ€™s unrelated to economic growth,โ€ Romney said. โ€œFrom day one, I will go to work to help Americans get back to work.โ€

      Does he KNOW how much “partisan legislation” about controlling women’s bodies the gop controlled legislature has tried to pass in the last 2 years. In 2010 the GOP controlled legislature said from day 1 this is about jobs.

      His lies are much more dangerous than those made by Sarah Palin – she just lied about her own intelligence and the President’s religion. Mitt Romney lies about what a GOP congress would do & what he would do. He is trying to blackmail the American people into voting for their own annihilation – this is scarrey stuff

          He didn’t win debate one …

          President Obama quietly made salient points because he like most sane people came to the debate expecting a real discussion about each candidates position on how to move our country forward…

          Sans the theatrics – which sadly our media and those who watch and listen to them seemed to demand and already decided was the basis for scoring what should have been a serious debate…

          President Obama was confronted by an empty, hollow, soul-less shell who courtesy of his cheat sheets shamelessly spewed memorized lies and all without flinching or missing a beat…

          Notice however that without a podium to hide his cheat sheets in subsequent debates, the empty, hollow shell came quickly unravelled – especially in the final debate where he rattled of his memorized lines which sounded often like gibberish…

      She should be seriously worried about his mental stability on the campaign. Introducing the gop congress as a positive – when it has about 5% approval – is a mentally deficient idea – not to mention the word blackmail.

      I wish the Obama administration embeds journalists with FEMA, the National Guard, etc… Give them IMAGES of government action. If you don’t feel the vacuum, media will only show images of suffering. President Obama and his team are doing a wonderful job, but they can’t solve everything overnight.

    My email strikes again!

    The wife came home early and found her husband in their bedroom making love to a very attractive young woman. And she was somewhat upset.
    ‘You are a disrespectful pig!’ she cried. ‘How dare you do this to me — a faithful wife, the mother of your children! I’m leaving you.. I want a divorce right away!’

    And the husband replied, ‘Hang on just a minute love so at least I can tell you what happened.
    ‘ ‘Fine, go ahead,’ she sobbed,’ but they’ll be the last words you’ll say to me!’

    And the husband began — ‘Well, I was getting into the
    car to drive home, and this young lady here asked me for a lift. She looked so down and out and defenseless that I took pity on her and let her into the car..

    I noticed that she was very thin, not well dressed and very dirty. She told me that she hadn’t eaten for three days. So, in my compassion, I brought her home and warmed up the enchiladas I made for you last night, the ones you wouldn’t eat because you’re afraid you’ll put on weight. The poor thing devoured them in moments.

    Since she needed a good clean-up, I suggested a shower, and while she was doing that, I noticed her clothes were dirty and full of holes, so I threw them away. Then, as she needed clothes, I gave her the designer jeans that you have had for a few years, but don’t wear because you say they are too tight.
    I also gave her the underwear that was your anniversary present, which you don’t wear because I don’t have good taste.

    I found the sexy blouse my sister gave you for Christmas that you don’t wear just to annoy her, and I also donated those boots you bought at the expensive boutique and don’t wear because someone at work has a pair the same.’

    The husband took a quick breath and continued – ‘She was so grateful for my understanding and help that as I walked her to the door, she turned to me with tears in her eyes and said,

    ‘Please … Do you have anything else that your wife doesn’t use?
