    Off topic and probably shallow. I love to see the President dance.
    To those who make fun of POTUS’ moves I say “He is The President. Not Chris Brown.”

      Dancing is dancing, whether you’re a pro or not. It’s what’s in your heart and how the music moves you that matters.

          Oh please folks lighten up will you. We can’t kid the President about his lack of dancing moves. Remember I’m anniebella, not David Nakamura, Chuck Todd. Mines was done in jest, I voted for this President twice, and would a third time if I could, he still have my support, even if I think he can’t dance. I’m glad POTUS keep “trying” to dance. 🙂

          • July 1, 2013 at 1:50 pm

            My 2 cents. I don’t think he’s rhythmically challenged or a bad dancer…just a little “stiff”. Let’s see if he loosens up after he doesn’t have to be concerned about the dignity of his office. Deal?

              I think my point got a little lost.
              I meant that the standards for judging might be a bit different than those we use for Chris Brown or Fred Astaire, for that matter.
              Basically i bet we all love to see POTUS dancing however we think it looks because most likely he is happy right then.

                My point is I don’t think either one of us went in the voting booth and voted for Barack Obama twice because he can or can’t dance.

                  I think that POB has an elegant rhythmic pattern to his movements when he dances. I observe that he is intellectually making his moves as he listens to the music that is being played. That is also a sign of a good listener as well. He just enjoys the poetic movement of his dancing which brings his movements in a tightness of his body moving to the beat.

                  He keeps his feet and hands in a ‘sure position’ which are called ‘tight movements’ of dance. He is a very close to his upper body parts in moving to the beat. I think it is soft, mellow, and very, very smooth. He dances with his mind, which is very hot , IMO.

                  I taught dance, so I have some other theories , but I will leave them for another time. He has a beautiful feel of a full spectrum movements, but he is very reserved in displaying them. He holds his movements close and stays in his own space with them. HZ

    [Karma is such a lovey! 🙂 ]:

    Relations between the Ecuadorean government and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange are becoming “incredibly strained” over the latter’s involvement in the Edward Snowden affair, the Independent has learned.

    If unresolved, the tensions – which were confirmed by a Quito source today – could bring into question Mr Assange’s own position within the Andean nation’s London embassy. He claimed asylum there more than a year ago in order to avoid extradition to Sweden.

        Assange does not seem he would be a charming house guest around the embassy. It would be hilarious if they opened the front door and kicked him to the street.

    • July 1, 2013 at 12:01 pm

      I notice that the US media is not reporting any of this. Everything in the US media is framed to make it seem as though Snowden has the upper hand, that Russia and the other countries are on his side against the US, and that PBO and the US government are at fault.

    Why could we not petition (and I think someone had this idea here at TOD a couple of days ago) for the best commentators from local radio and tv stations around the country to form a group from which 20 or so would be selected to accompany the President on his travels instead of the current WHPC? So no CNN, MSNBC, CBS, etc. The questions would be more insightful, and if these local reporters do not know anything about Tanzania (and I admit, I don’t) you can bet they would study hard before going to learn something about it: I know I would. They might even be interested enough to ask a question about the host country instead of asking weeks old questions about Snowden, which have already been answered by our President. I am mortified by the WHPC, it is embarassing. How much longer do we have to be subjected to their STUPID?

    A Russian immigration official said Monday that Edward Snowden, who is wanted in the U.S. on espionage charges for leaking information on National Security Agency surveillance programs, has applied for political asylum in Russia, according to the New York Times.

    The anonymous official told the Times that the asylum application was delivered to a Russian consulate within Moscow’s international airport by Sarah Harrison, an activist with the Wikileaks organization who is escorting Snowden.

      Better and better. The worst day of Snowden’s life will be if the Russians say yes. He will get a first hand taste of what it means to be in an actual police state, monitored continuously and only let out of his cell for the occasional propaganda promo. By that time he will be begging to come back to the U.S. but it will be too late. No one can hear you scream when you’re trapped in a Kafka novel.

    Shortly before Election Day last year, mailers went out to Texas voters featuring pictures of a Democratic congressional candidate and a rare species of spider, whose discovery had forced stoppage of an important highway construction project.

    “The same left-wing extremists who support Pete Gallego want more burdensome regulations that put the interests of spiders above our need to create more jobs,” the flier declared, referring to discovery of the endangered Braken Bat Cave meshweaver. “The best way to stop left-wing extremists from killing jobs is to vote against their hand-picked candidate Pete Gallego.”

    The group that put out the mailer, A Better America Now, reported to the Federal Election Commission it had spent about $65,000 for the mailer and TV advertising in the hard-fought race to represent Texas’ 23rd district.

    But in a tax return recently filed with the IRS, the group claimed it did not spend any money at all on “direct or indirect political campaign activities.”

    The tax return is signed under the penalty of perjury by the group’s president, Bob Portrie, and the accounting firm LBA Group. Neither responded to requests for comment.

    They lie about everything they do. Always. If their mouths are moving, it’s a lie.

    Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said Monday that former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden will have to stop leaking U.S. secrets if he wants to get asylum in Russia, but added that Snowden has no plan to quit doing so. … “If he wants to go somewhere and there are those who would take him, he is welcome to do that,” Putin said. “If he wants to stay here, there is one condition: he must stop his activities aimed at inflicting damage to our American partners, no matter how strange it may sound on my lips.”

    Putin added that Snowden doesn’t want to stop his efforts to reveal information about the U.S. surveillance program.

    “Just because he feels that he is a human rights defender, rights activist, he doesn’t seem to have an intention to stop such work,” Putin said. …http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57591783/putin-snowden-must-stop-damaging-our-american-partners/

    I ask that you call keep my family in your thoughts as well…My 22 yr old niece attempted suicide this weekend. Thank God for the technology we have today. She posted the note on Twitter and the police were able to track her down via her cell phone. She is still critical but she is alive.

    SERBIA yesterday was given the go-ahead to start negotiations on joining the European Union, capping a remarkable transformation in the prospects of the biggest former Yugoslav republic since the 1990s wars.

    The decision rewards Belgrade for a deal to improve relations with its former province of Kosovo, which broke away from Serbia in a 1998-99.

    EU leaders also agreed that Brussels should launch negotiations with Kosovo on a so-called association agreement, which covers trade, economic and political relations and is a step on the path to eventual membership.

    The leaders agreed that talks with Serbia would start in January 2014 “at the very latest”. “We are at a historic moment for the Balkans and for Europe as a whole,” European Council president Herman Van Rompuy told a news conference, noting that the decisions on Serbia and Kosovo came as Croatia prepares to join the European Union on Monday

    When Wendy Davis courageously stood in the Texas legislative chamber to filibuster an anti-abortion law, she was standing up for me.  When thousands of men and women drove from far and wide, flooded the chambers and tens of thousands lent support from across the nation, they did so for me.  I too stood with Wendy, but it’s not about abortion to me.

    Saw a tweet that said the TX state house shut down the free wi-fi access. Can anybody confirm?

      So who was the idiot reporter who said that Africa didn’t like our President that much. Was it that jack “A” from the Washington Post? David Nakamura .

    Snowden continues to show his ignorance and lack of any historical education by seeking asylum in Russia. He has obviously not had any world history. Russia was not kind to people under the Tsars, and is not kind to people now. He will be a prisoner there, if he is “granted” asylum.

    He has thought he could dictate terms of asylum, or terms for dealing with the DOJ…..he is being given a lesson in the realities of the political world today. He has destroyed any “dialogue opening” he thought he would accomplish, as he continues to dig himself deeper and deeper into trouble. Ecuador doesn’t want him, Russia doesn’t want him, Putin made this very clear, Hong Kong didn’t want him……pretty soon it’ll be down Honduras or Somalia, right now the two most dangerous countries of record.

    Of course, what Putin’s statement makes very clear to anyone with two brain cells to rub together, is that a lot of quiet, under the press radar work has been going on with our diplomats and their government. This statement from Putin did not come about just out of thin air. Irritating the United States is not a smart thing to do, whether or not Snowden knows it. He is not nearly as important as Russia’s relations with the U.S.

      The only reason Putin would give Snowden asylum would be to embarrass the U.S. Nice job, whack job libertarians, who think it makes sense that the American people, who couldn’t find Russia on a map, should be ‘in charge’ of intelligence gathering. Give me a break.

      yes, there is an issue with incompetent or mean-spirited people getting control of the government. We should always be able to trust that any administration, regardless of political leanings, has the competence and the welfare of the American people at heart. In this post 9-11 world, that has completely fallen apart. Instead, we should have every yahoo who can tweet, have a say and access to delicate international intelligence.

      It’s effing nuts.

      NASA is paying Russia $424 million to send astronauts into space. This is more important to Russia than a third rate leaker.

    A Roman walks into a bar and orders a martinus.

    “You mean a martini?” asks the bartender.

    The Roman replies: “If I wanted a double I’d have ordered one!”

    LOL! I get it now, Putin, like most bullies talks a lot of shit. But when they are forced to either shit or get off the pot, they usually get off the pot. Since when does Putin make announcements proclaiming Russian Security Agents aren’t in the business of getting any sort of information they can when it comes to America? Whatever usefulness Snowden has provided to Russia has run its course and now Russia wants nothing to do with Snowden. All ready Ecuador has said that Snowden isn’t worth the trouble or the headache. With all of his options being zero and none I suspect by the end of the week Snowden will be begging to come back to America.

    Well well well, young Mr. Snowden should have stayed in Hawaii with his hundred thousand dollar a year job and leave the leaking to the professionals. If I was advising Mr. Snowden I’d tell him to get his ass on a plane and leave Russia while Putin still thinks he’s cute. To make matters worse, Ecuador is getting tired of Julian Assange and his antics and will soon give his ass the boot. People will put up with your farts for only so long.

    More power to the people in Texas and North Carolina who are protesting against evil white men who want to take our rights away.
