    Please retweet! We need to out this person/persons. If they were elected officials their names need to be as well known as any other national criminal and removed from office.

      We need a investigation as to who release this info. Let’s see what the lousy lying Republicans have to say about that. Ask that lousy John Boehner if the Republicans who release these lies should go to jail.

      Totally agree on this one, Forus. If this had been the Dems, the Repubs would be demanding a scalp. I want to know exactly WHO falsified information and I want that to be a banner headline in every newspaper in the country and at the top of every news hour.

        Thanks jackieg adn anniebella for the comments. And everyone for their retweets! This is a “lay-up” on getting this person or persons ousted if in fact they are an elected official.

      LOL! McPain moved off Ben-i-gazi a couple of weeks ago (I think it’s been that many days) and onto cable teevee issue. He saw the stuff was going to blow & did his vamoosey thingy. BFF Lindsay didn’t follow suit, Turtle Man jumped right alongise Bachman! Orange Man yakked through his 98-proof Absolut fog. Can’t think clearly when grey matter is in a distellery. There’s an implosion going on & those MSM are right in there w/ the puppeteers. As they “please proceed,” I’m w/ Zizi et al. — keeping eyes on 2014 prize.

        I agree. And “eyes on the prize” for this is about making that person for the 2014 elections as toxic as Scott Brown, Todd Akin, Mourdock, etc. etc. etc…ad infinitum GOP. 🙂

          Yes indeedy, Forus50! Wrath of Khan isn’t anywhere near what these effers are going to feel come 2014. We need a concerted effort to get rid of the local idiots too — states need to clean their houses. Started on you NC and working my way through every single one. I’m talking to my people in NC (for example), and anyone who knows anyone in NC, etc., those in NC who know someone in SC, etc. Make calls, anything. Vote! This is serious.

          Looking at you VA — “The general election will be held on November 5, 2013 following a Democratic primary election on June 11, 2013 and a Republican statewide convention on May 17-18, 2013.” It’s so weirdly quiet in the DC Metro (except for the commercials), one would think there’s some shenanigans going on. People of VA Vote!

          Aahhh, I feel much better. Onwards! 🙂

        True, and I think Scott Prouty is humble enough to know that. I was stretching to make him feel good on this big day! 🙂

    My tie! My tie!. I thought he’d retired it. It’s my favorite and he wore it just for me, knowing I’d be right up top of the thread to ogle.

    I’ve often wondered when PBO takes pics with citizens, do they get their very own copy? When Sousa captures the folks on the rope line, or in a restaurant, or in public areas, does someone get contact info from everyone in the frame? Do they have to go hunting on the innertubz to see if they can find something? The pics here are so precious. I’m sure the parents of these kids would love to have copies for safe keeping and future references.

      My pics with my sons and President Obama were taken by a friend that lead our own OFA group.

        Yeah, I understand folks would have their own pics, but what about the ones, like those above? Will those kids get copies? My daughter was photographed by a WH photographer twice. One, at Howard U when Michelle was speaking there, and one at a campaign rally in Virginia. One of the pics can be found on the White House site, but no one told her that she would get copies or that it could be found on the WH site. The Virginia one, ended up in a local newspaper, that she went through Google search to find.

        I just want the kids that PBO interact with to have an opportunity to have copies.

    • May 17, 2013 at 1:51 pm

      I’m sure if they contact the White House they’d get copies of the publicly released photos, ie the ones that appear on Flickr, but after that it’s really up to them to Google like everyone else does!

        Thanks Chips, I do hope that kid’s parents get in touch with the WH. They are just too cute to not have prominently displayed on the fireplace mantel.

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A federal judge on Friday granted a request to temporarily block enforcement of a new Arkansas law that bans most abortions 12 weeks into a pregnancy.

    U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright granted a motion for preliminary injunction in a lawsuit that the American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas and the Center for Reproductive Rights brought on behalf of two Little Rock abortion providers.

    The state’s Republican-led Legislature enacted the 12-week abortion ban in March by overriding a veto from Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe. It is to take effect in August.

    The lawsuit says the ban is unconstitutional and clearly contradicts the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion until a fetus could viably survive outside the womb – generally 22 to 24 weeks.

    Paraphrased, the President says we have three things on the Jobs Agenda:

    1. Make America a magnet for good jobs
    2. Assure we have workers who have the education and skills to do those jobs, and
    3. If and when you are working hard, that it leads to a decent living …

    Jobs Tour, baby!

    Media Hardly Notice Deficit Drop


    Following months of media calls for deficit reduction, cable news channels spent just over 7 minutes reporting on a revised Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projection that the 2013 deficit will decline by more than previous estimates. Broadcast network news evening shows did not cover the new report.

      But we notice, LH, and we have to use our own megaphones. Don’t let anyone you know forget what PBO has accomplished on the deficit. Discuss it at every gathering–Memorial Day is coming up–and at every water cooler if you’re working. Ask your local newspaper to run the story. Mention it at a radio call in. Definitely feature it on FB and tweet it like mad. Best of all, get anyone you tell it to to tell someone else.

    ZIZI, I was reading your Eye on the Prize article on the previous page, and loved it!!
    I’ve bookmarked it so I can refer to it frequently. It was brilliant 🙂

    ZiZi, I totally concur. Absolutely brilliant and right on point. God, how I wish you and some other here were on the WHPC.
    Those jerks who are there now are just taking up space.
    Who is that little cutie pie PBO is having fun with? There has to be a name to that cute face…..
    I was up early wishing Tally Happy Birthday greetings. My grandson shares the same day. He is on a Disney cruise with family.

    It’s the best Scandal Recap on the web.

    White Hat’s Back On And I’m Laid Out: Scandal Finale Recap
    [ 1 ] May 17, 2013 | Luvvie

    How does a TV show render you unable to function for three hours? Well, Scandal’s season finale did just that to me and my girls. It went off and for a good hour, we were screaming and falling out at random intervals. And I kept saying how Shonda had slayed me one GOOD time too many. I got home and was trying to write and could not because my ability to CAN had been rendered obsolete so I just went and laid my burdens down under a blanket.

    It was an EXPLOSIVE finale episode and from the moment it started to the end, we were treated with gasp-worthy moments. Shonda and her writing staff hit us in the jugular for the entire hour. Let’s get into it!
