USA Today: Obama to speak on 5th anniversary of financial crisis

President Obama will deliver a speech Monday on the fifth anniversary of the event that helped elect him back in 2008: The financial crisis. Obama “will be joined on-stage and in the audience by people that have benefited from his economic recovery proposals over the last five years,” the White House said in a statement, “including small business owners, construction workers, homeowners, consumers and tax cut recipients.”

Obama will use the speech to kick off a week of events devoted to the economy and budget issues.

…. A Tuesday interview on the Spanish language television network Telemundo gives Obama a chance to talk about another major domestic issue, immigration. Budget issues are likely to dominate a Wednesday speech to the Business Roundtable. And Obama is likely to emphasize the auto bailout when he travels Friday to a Ford plant in the Kansas City area.

Your Morning Must-Read:

The People’s View: Ezra Klein’s Concern Trolling on Obama and the Federal Reserve

As soon as news hit the wires that Larry Summers has withdrawn his name from consideration for chair of the Federal Reserve, the media went on a full-spin mode, likely embarrassed that just Friday, they were pimping a Japanese newspaper report trumpeting Summers as the chosen one. Ezra Klein, who’d been part of the media build-up toward that ‘inevitability,’ if along with his opposition to it.

This is where a little Obama Derangement Syndrome seeped in. Ezra, along with his peers in the beltway media – dude, get out a little from you Post office and the MSNBC studios; it’ll do you some good – wasn’t just convinced that Summers would be a bad choice, but that Obama would pick him just to take pleasure in some hippie-punching, i.e. just to piss off establishment media liberals like Klein.

TPM: Biden: ‘The Tail Is Wagging The Dog’ In Today’s GOP

Vice President Joe Biden warned donors and activists of a fundamental shift in the Republican party at an Iowa fundraiser Sunday, calling today’s GOP a “different breed of cat” and taking a shot at the leadership of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“This is not your father’s Republican Party,” he told a crowd just before Sen. Tom Harkin’s (D) annual steak fry, according to a pool report. “We’re dealing with a different breed of cat as my uncle used to say. These guys aren’t bad. I’m not making moral judgments, but they have a fundamentally different view of America than we do – a fundamentally different view.”

Bob Cesca: The Goalpost for Success Was the Disarmament of Syria’s WMD, So the U.S. Won an Historic Victory

Saturday marked an historic event future generations will read about in books. Over the weekend, Russia and the United States reached an accord over the question of the Syrian government’s stockpiles of chemical weapons, most recently used against civilians late last month.

Whether the United States “won” depends entirely upon your definition of victory. Personally, I define victory in terms of the stated goal of the administration’s actions of the past three weeks: to destroy Syria’s chemical weapons to prevent another attack on Syrian civilians.

Michael Tomasky: The Right’s Sickening Syria Spin

If Obama persuaded Assad to step down and move to Siberia, the critics would still find something to whine about. Michael Tomasky deflates the arguments against the new arms deal.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not very interested in being lectured that Bashar al-Assad has no real intention of giving up his chemical weapons by the very same people who a decade ago were pushing this country into war — and having the deranged gall to call the rest of us unpatriotic — on the argument that there was no possible way a monster like Saddam Hussein had given up his chemical weapons. Barack Obama has been forced to spend about 70 percent of his presidential energies trying to repair crises foreign and domestic that these people created, and forced to do so against their iron opposition on all fronts; and now that he’s achieved a diplomatic breakthrough, they have the audacity to argue that he sold America out to Vladimir Putin? It’s staggering and sickening.

Steve Benen: The right struggles to hide its disappointment with diplomatic progress

A couple of years ago, after the United States and its allies used military force to help remove the Gadhafi’s government from Libya, Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham issued one of my favorite Republican press releases ever. The two senators, who had eagerly spent months touting U.S. military action in Libya, issued a joint statement commending the “British, French, and other allies, as well as our Arab partners, especially Qatar and the UAE.”

McCain and Graham eventually said Americans can be “proud of the role our country” played, but they nevertheless condemned the Obama administration’s “failure” to act in Libya the way the GOP senators preferred.

It was striking at the time for its bitterness – the United States had achieved its strategic goals, but instead of celebrating or applauding Obama’s success, Republicans pouted and whined.

It’s funny how history sometimes repeats itself….

Science Insider: U.S. Science Laureate Bill Hits Roadblock

Climate science skeptics have derailed a congressional proposal to create the honorary position of U.S. science laureate. But proponents haven’t abandoned the idea of giving someone a national platform to foster public understanding of science and serve as a role model.

….. the U.S. House of Representatives was expected to give swift approval to a bill introduced this spring by a bipartisan coalition of legislators in both the House and the Senate….

The bill was never discussed in any committee, however, and Larry Hart of the American Conservative Union hit the roof when he saw it on the House calendar for the next day. In a letter to other conservative organizations and every House member, Hart said the bill would give President Barack Obama the opportunity to appoint someone “who will share his view that science should serve political ends, on such issues as climate change and regulation of greenhouse gases.”….

Smartypants: A Both/And Leader in an Either/Or World

For the record, I don’t think President Obama has any magical powers, or that he plays 11th dimensional chess, or that he bluffs, or that he’s merely lucky. What I do think is that he develops his North Star, takes the long view, and enters negotiations from the standpoint of finding both/and solutions (partnerships) rather than engage in the power games of either/or (dominance).

Several people are pointing to a fascinating blog post by Jim Stuart where he talks about President Obama being an integral leader. If you haven’t already read it, please do so!

    The Goalpost for Success Was the Disarmament of Syria’s WMD, So the U.S. Won a Historic Victory

    By Bob Cesca


    So let’s stop playing this game. U.S. forces were deployed by the commander-in-chief to achieve one goal: to eliminate Assad’s chemical weapons — not to oust Assad; and not to fight on behalf of the rebels, many of whom hate us and will continue to hate us irrespective of what we might have done, or might not have done. I thought this was about getting the WMD. The administration, at least on paper, has achieved this goal without firing as so much as a water-balloon in the direction of Syria. Goldberg and other pessimists and administration opponents are free to spin away, but it doesn’t change the fact that the administration’s saber-rattling led to an eleventh-hour deal which will lead to the sole goalpost: the disarmament of Syria’s massive stockpiles of chemical weapons.

      Great summary by Cesca, LH, although you know this is too complicated for the media and right wing to understand. They wanted a “shoot ‘um up,” damn it, and the president didn’t give them one. How dare he pursue peace over war when they were salivating for blood, gore and things that go “kaboom” in the night.

    You know I was watching CBS This Morning this morning and they had Frank Luntz up there running his mouth, trying to blame the President and both side for the dysfunction in Washington. I had to send a email to the Charlie, Gail, and Nora and tell them that Luntz is lying once again because the blame for no one being able to work together lies with the right wing radical Tea party Republicans. President Obama have reached out to Boehner and these Republicans over and over again, but they refuse to compromise with him. So Luntz is once again sitting before the public lying.

      How Obama Derangement Syndrome is unlike that of Bush

      By Liberal Librarian


      Obama Derangement Syndrome is different because it’s all-consuming. Nothing that he does can be credited. Everything he does must be deligitimized. He has to be shown as an empty suit, a buffoon, a clown, an incompetent, someone good at entertaining with speeches but completely out of his depth at governing. The more success he racks up, the greater the volume of this banshee wailing. The Republican Party and the Right in general have ceased standing for anything positive; they merely exist to oppose Obama in everything, no matter the damage it will do to the state. The Right’s only purpose is to conduct a scorched-earth campaign against the president.

    The right struggles to hide its disappointment with diplomatic progress

    By Steve Benen


    At this point, Republican complaints made a right turn at unpersuasive and landed at unseemly. Many on the right urged Obama to engage in saber-rattling against Syria, then complained when the president did just that. Many on the right urged Obama to take the issue to Congress, then complained when the president did that, too. Many on the right said they supported military intervention, right up until Obama agreed with them. Now Republicans seem to be complaining … just for the sake of complaining.
    If the right could at least try to hide their disappointment, it might be easier to take their views on foreign policy seriously.

    GM all TODvillians, from quite chilly Chicago. At least chilly compared to what we have been going through. Heck, I think it is cooler than it was on the Alaska cruise.

    I have been having an ongoing dispute with PM Carpenter, who insists, over and over, that Putin saved PBO with his offer. No matter what, he is sticking with that story so I have decided not to try any more. The list of blog sites I visit is dwindling. Thank you for steering me to another one.

    Quick comment on Iran. The canddiates for President have to be approved by the clerics and ultimately by the Ayatollah. In past elections, they would never have even allowed a moderate such as Rouhani to even run for the office. Now, not only did they allow it, but he won. And since then, we have seen numerous stories indicating that there might be progress with Iran on several fronts.

    In my mind, I believe this is due to the leadership of PBO. Most of the world is accustomed, after Bush, with America’s cowboy diplomacy. PBO has shown himself to be the exact opposite. His role in Libya, and other areas of the Arab SDpring, including non-interefernce in Iran during their period of strong protests, other than some key but not hostile remarks, was watched closely in Iran. And once he was reelected, they saw an opportunity to make some changes.

    This would never have happened if Romney had won. When he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, PBO said he felt undeserving, but at that same time, laid out what he felt the role of the US was when it came to world affairs. I have no doubt many around the world, specially in the ME were sketical, but he has shown he meant what he said. He has also shown he means business and does not totally shy away from the use of force.

    What will happen in the next weeks, months and years is not yet determined, but we have seen a transformation begin. And I will continue in my support to work to amke sure the transformation continues.

    • September 16, 2013 at 9:35 am

      Morning Japa! I really admire PM Carpenter, but he sure as hell puzzles me sometimes.

      Very interesting on Iran, and you’re so right, there’s no way on earth these signs of progress would be appearing if there was a Republican in power, Romney (or whoever) would have been too busy banging the war drums at the prompting of McCain and Co.

      Encouraging times.

        I generally like PM as well. It is just his unwillingness to even give PBO one smidgeon of credit on this, as well as his over the top harangues on the NSA issue.

        • September 16, 2013 at 9:49 am

            September 16, 2013 at 9:56 am

            He’s avoided it for a while, but he definitely was. Most of his readers, or at least those that comment, really gave him pushback.

            • September 16, 2013 at 10:00 am

              Ah, didn’t know that Japa. I can tolerate some writers – like Charles Pierce – being strongly anti-NSA and all that, because that kind of thing has always been an issue for them, they’re genuine and passionate about it. But when others simply use it as a stick to beat PBO with, without acknowledging the need for surveillance, then …. bye.

    • 42 ericfive
      September 16, 2013 at 11:51 am

      If PM Carpenter can’t accept the simple fact that Putin saved Asaad with his offer, not PBO, then either he is “playing dumb” so he won’t have to apologize for his previous articles, or has a severe case of ODS. Asaad is Putin’s ally and as such Putin would act to protect his ally from U.S. military action. As I said previously, I think many in the MSM are spinning the Syrian situation into a defeat for PBO to prey on the mentally challenged or people who are not paying attention. The MSM has its desired anti-PBO narrative and will lie, spin and twist themselves into pretzels to maintain that narrative.

    Fewer than half of all Republicans and Republican leaners (43%) want elected officials who oppose the law to do what they can to make it fail; 37% say they should try to make it work as well as possible. However, 64% of Tea Party Republicans oppose the law and want elected officials to do what they can to make it fail. By comparison, just 31% of Republicans and Republican leaners who do not agree with the Tea Party favor this approach.
    There you have it. Fewer than one in four Americans supports efforts to try to make the law fail. Fewer than half of Republicans back such efforts; support for them is largely driven by Tea Party Republicans.

I was the stage manager and assistant director for a production of Grapes of Wrath, and she played the youngest daughter. She was stunning and talented even at that young age.

    During the run, we do ‘pick up rehearsals’ – a way to refresh before you start the next weekend’s run. Our Tom Joad had to miss one rehearsal and Cecily ‘played’ the male lead, delivering every one of his (many!) lines like a real pro!

    Now we hear only one shooter, a man in his 50’s wearing black, heavily armed carrying 3 weapons, including an AR15 is dead. The doctor at one of the hospitals where 3 victims were taken, identifies one man (officer shot in both legs) and 2 women (civilians gunshot to shoulder/ gunshot to head and hands) are in critical condition, but each are expected to fully recover.

    No confirmation of any other shootings by any other person/s at any other location.

    PBO to speak later.
