    Thanks NerdyWonka for all your great tweets: able to follow the speech even though not able to watch. We have our work cut out for us. 2014 needs to be a wave election: for women, immigrants, middle class, African Americans, all POC, LGBT, in fact, everyone except for the Neanderthal GOP.

      You’re welcome Taiping1. Couldn’t agree more. We’re being attacked from every corner: state legislatures, House of Reps, Senate etc. We’re being attacked for being women, minorities, students, etc. as though that were a crime.

      All hands need to be on deck for 2014.

      I second your statements, Taiping1!

      WSJ editorial page has always been a sewer. The real editorial should be that nobody has been worse for the middle class than the Republican House and the Republican minority in the Senate, not to mention the insane Republican governors destroying our states.

    Btw / I am not saying that Weiner should drop out, although John Edwards did. I am simply saying Weiner should have never gone off on the President like he did, all those times on Msnbc.
    He just shouldn’t have!

    • July 25, 2013 at 8:48 am

      I had forgotten he did that, Jovie.

      I’m no fan of Weiner for the way he treated PBO, but that doesn’t mean the MSM doesn’t have double standards when it comes to deciding who should drop out vs who shouldn’t for similar indiscretions.

      Weiner is like Bill Clinton but more aggressive (not as smooth talking). I don’t know if he’ll be a good mayor and that’s not for me to decide, I just think it’s up to the voters. But it’s quite clear whether he wins or loses if Clinton wins in 2016 (rolls eyes) Abedin is getting a prominent position and she’s taking it which will probably lead to their seperation.

    Folks, if you can- please tune in.

    It’s interesting that she gave Robin the interview, but didn’t go on CNN, FOX or MSNBC.

      This is the juror with the failed book deal? She was Hispanic? I don’t really care to hear what she has to say.

        Different one Jessica – the book deal was B37 – privileged white and sorry for poor George

        No, the juror with the failed book deal was B37, not B39.

          B29 is the one with 8 children (I wasn’t sure so checked). Only 1 over 18. She, like most, really wanted to be on the jury. I think she wanted a vacation away from the children

          http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/06/20/19061824-meet-the-zimmerman-jury?lite

          Originally from Chicago, she’s been married for 10 years. The woman — who is either black or Hispanic and is the only juror who isn’t white, according to prosecutors — has eight kids, one of them older than 18. This is her first time serving on a jury. The woman has been at her current job for three months, and when asked by prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda if she belonged to any organization, she said “my house is my organization,” eliciting laughter and understanding from the courtroom.

        The juror with the book deal was the one married to a lawyer, who called Zimmerman George, like she fondly knew him, who call peaceful protest riots, who had her mind made up before one piece of evidence were given, who didn’t have a ounce of sympathy for Trayvon Martin or his family, that was juror B-37.

    I lovely picture of POTUS and FLOTUS.

      I feel like I’m looking at a Norman Rockwell painting from the 1950s when I see that picture — innocence, romance and nostalgia.
