    Good West Coast evening Chipsticks and TOD family.

    I rushed home to catch all of the correct information of today and WOW!

    Bush appointee’s FIRED??!!!!????!!!!! WHAAATTT!!!!!!

    So who’s working on passing bills on the Hill or is everyone chasing the new shiny objects; IRS, AP, Bengazhi…

      Hey GGail – the President’s people are doing the people’s business. The media and GOP and weak Dems are following shiny objects. Not making too much of a difference, since they don’t do any real work anyway, and are trapped in an echo chamber…

    A couple of teabagger hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head.

    The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?”

    The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.”

    There is a silence, then a coupla shots being fired is heard. The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?”

              Okay. Keep us posted. I’m curious to know if she’ll train in Ireland, India, Canada or Cuba. I suppose favourite son has already wrapped up his first year or is close to doing so. One son here finished from mid April and has since started some summer courses, which will go until August.

        They are both grayer than they were four years ago! But then again it may be because they are smarter and wiser than all the people who hate them so much.

        • 65 99ts
          May 15, 2013 at 11:21 pm

          I thought about mentioning the gray – so perhaps I could say “they are both looking very distinguished” – truly sad, however that serving your country has such an aging effect. I will not give in to hate, but I will never forget what the GOP and their big fan – the media – have put this administration through – because – blah …

          Now I shall do some chores & then check out the egg on face media after the 2008/12 elections – I love to see them make believe until the last second that Sen/Pres Barack Obama cannot win!!

      • May 15, 2013 at 10:29 pm

        Lawrence showed Billo telling his audience that the GOp have overreached in the desire to tarnish POTUS. He says they should not rush to declare stuff “scandals”.
        I guess he realized they have nuked their own feet in their spectacular trifecta fail this week

            • May 15, 2013 at 10:58 pm

              Oh he did? Did their own poll numbers not tell them the exact same FACT in the run up to 2012 elections. Romney’s entire shtick was to fight the “uphill battle” against POTUS’s “persistent” likability? Did they think we wax on and wax off our respect and admiration for this President like they do their one night stands?

              President Obama IS the PEOPLE’S president. WE ELECTED & RE-ELECTED him by the sweat of our brow. They can’t take him down. We worked hard for him and nothing’s gonna shake our resolve to beat back the evil reach of the plutocrats. Ari should have warned his wingnut congress not to try these “scandal” tricks. Not gonna fly!!!

        I’m still trying to get over “Billow & Sauerkraut” – that second one was new to me – and I was too bamboozled by Billo’s chicken neck a’shakin’, but I think Charles Krauthammer was saying the media shouldn’t rush right in with the “scandal” talk, and that only because it didn’t work.

        • May 15, 2013 at 10:38 pm

          Yep. Actually, Krauthammer is a very shrewd reader of POTUS’s actions. Which is precisely what drives his wingnut brain nuts. He never underestimates PBO. Except instead of admiring him for his integrity his lizard brain thinks PBO is Machavellian

        Of course she has her own bed…..dogs deserve their own bed. I get very soft cuddly beds for my two dogs….and yes, beds plural. For two dogs there are four beds in various special spots in the house. I find dogs much superior to most people of my acquaintance actually. There have been only about five years of my entire life I have lived without a dog. Different kinds, all of them wonderful.
        Right now my little poodle, Chanel, is in one of her beds beside the couch where I’m sitting. At night, I put her bed beside our bed, right next to me. She sleeps there all night, and when I wake up sometimes, I look at her and smile and go back to sleep knowing she’s there.

        After the fact, I looked up that interview she’s always blabbing about, and it was in 2005 – Ha! So, now she thinks I think everybody’s 8 years old who’s watching msnbc. But I cannot stand her because she’s always bashing our President.

        And, come to think of it … newspapers used to be written at the six-grade level, so maybe our current cable news is speaking at the 8-year-old level. That’s it! That’s why they all sound like Chris Hayes and Luke Russert.

    In Two Hours Obama Destroys the GOP’s Benghazi and IRS Scandals

    By: Jason Easley

    ———————————-

    Republicans are now reduced to trying to turn the investigation of the AP that they demanded into an Obama scandal. However, the AP flap is resonating much more with the media than it is with the country at large. It is interesting to note that the mainstream media is outraged over what happened to the AP, but they were mostly silent during the Bush administration’s abuses via the Patriot Act. They also said little when the Bush administration was paying journalists and columnists to push their agenda in the media. (I am not suggesting that what happened to the AP was justified, but that the media has been wildly inconsistent over the past decade when it comes to protecting the First Amendment.)
