      LOL – I have a “Curves” right next door to me. That’s the good news. The bad news is that I’ve never stepped inside!

      Good luck with your workout – tnmtngirl 🙂

      I want to see one, just one, prominent media type say, “I was wrong to underestimate the president.” I would then predict a massive uptick in that person’s viewers or readers. Along with the president, his supporters have always been underestimated. There are massive numbers of us out here and we are tired of the lies.

    • September 10, 2013 at 9:18 am

      Of course they’ll spin themselves into a twirl because, after all, it’s all about them. Their needs, their war lust, their biases. They could care less about the gassed children, about deliberately lying to the American people in story after story and they could care less about the potential loss of life in a strike. If it doesn’t make the media itself look good, it’s bad. And that’s the president’s fault.

    Even though this has been going on pretty much since Inauguration Day 2009, and even though it’s no longer unexpected, it still blows me away that for any of President Obama’s accomplishments, there is a quest to find the negative aspects. And when no negatives can be found, then credit is given to any and every one other than the President.

    I’m sure that for all Barack Obama supporters, there are situations where you might wish he would have done things differently. But I for one realize that I do not have access to all the information he has. Nor does my level of intelligence and strategic thinking come close to his. Therefore, I am not in a position to say what he should or should not do. What I can say is that thus far he has made sound decisions and is working for the good of the country. I have no reason to believe he will do otherwise and will continue to trust in his judgment.

    I know the things that are being done are efforts to taint President Obama’s legacy. But just like the term “Obamacare” became a plus, history will show that there was no recklessness to President Obama’s decision-making process; thus he was able to rise above and overcome the obstructions thrown his way….The greatness of his accomplishments will one day be acknowledged.

    • September 10, 2013 at 9:26 am

      SW, I take comfort in the fact that every truly great president–and there are very few–has been vilified, misunderstood and torn to pieces in the press. I don’t think Abraham Lincoln had one night’s peaceful sleep what with the burden of enormous decisions, the prosecution of the terrible war, the constant, demeaning criticism about everything from his voice to his appearance and the vicious attacks and threats by his enemies. Ditto, FDR, who, despite an overwhelming Democratic majority in the both houses of Congress was despised and threatened by many who called him everything under the sun and were even crueler to his wife. The presidents who do little and matter less tend to skate by with less venom thrown at them. If you only measured the amount of venom thrown at him, Barack Obama will go down as one of the greatest presidents of all time. Of course, all of us have always known that.

      Ut, I looked and couldn’t find a list of the store locations. We desperately need this to happen in PA. RiteAids are everywhere, but Corbett is doing nothing to help people get information. It would be a huge boost to participation if Rite Aid could introduce this service to all their stores.

    I see Syria says they accept proposal to turn chemical weapon supplies over to international control. I agree with President Obama. I remain highly “skeptical”. These are not boy scouts we’re dealing with here——Russia and Syria.

    Dudette, the answer to your question at the end of last thread is W. E. B. DuBois.

    • 61 Dudette
      September 10, 2013 at 9:33 am

      No I’m pretty sure that’s DuBois sitting in the chair below the painting on the wall. I was asking who’s IN the painting. The woman in the other painting over the fireplace is Ida B. Wells, but the man in the other painting kinda has me stupid. It’s not Thurgood Marshall. I thought maybe Adam Clayton Powell, Benjamin Banneker or maybe Crispus Attucks.

        On that note, time for me to go! See y’all later! 🙄

Thank you, President Obama for working so incredibly hard for THE WORLD and its people. So happy to be living in the Age of Obama. MSM….you’ve really shown how irrelevant you are. FU.

    Morning, TOD! Went to bed with an absessed gum, woke up without one. Yeah, me! Should be an interesting day…..can’t WAIT to hear my President speak tonight.

    A Deal to Prevent a War in Syria Reveals Obama as JFK, Not GWB

    Of course the truth about how the Obama administration’s national security team has handled the Syrian chemical weapons crisis was almost entirely obscured in the press when it was reported that Russian president Vladimir Putin, via his foreign minister Sergey Larov, had, at least on paper, convinced Bashar al-Assad to permit the dismantling and seizing of his military’s chemical weapons arsenal. In keeping with nearly every accomplishment of this president, whether center-right or center-left, liberal or conservative, the news was treated as somehow a loss for the administration — that Pooty-Poot had reared his head into the airspace over Syria and fulfilled the conservative fantasy of Putin The Peacemaker, not to mention Putin The Obama Disser.

    This scenario entirely overlooked two things: 1) the Friday G20 meeting between Putin and the president, and 2) Secretary Kerry’s remarks on Sunday, which offered Syria a way out.

    Politically this is shaping up to be another entry on my “best days ever” list.

    Our genius President has played yet another difficult hand to perfection. POTUS had the entire country’s attention on Syria and an impennding military action.
    Everyone had to think about what was right and what constituted appropriate action.
    The Haters lined up quickly. Crazed and ignorant.
    Patriots who love their country took their time and listened to all the evidence and issues.
    And then, Boom, we got the info that changed the entire dynamic—–PBO/Putin and their earlier discussions working towards a solution.

    I cannot wait for 9:01.30 tonight.

    But today Is ELECTION DAY in NYC! Which means I will be out all day. Back to TOD later after President Barack Obama explains it all to us. Pretty sure I will have good election news to report.

    Have a great day folks on TOD. See you later.

      Makes for a good debt ceiling debate. Cantor wants 16.7 trillion in cuts to balance budget by next ten years or no debt ceiling increase.
      16.7 trillion? Imagine this Is what they had in mind had Romney won?
