      Actually, it has ALWAYS been about “sticking it to Obama” whether it meant defunding ACA, or cutting spending in an area important to PBO’s agenda. It’s just now clearer than ever what it’s really about.

    So Ezra Klein’s wife (Miss Annie) has been trying to make a big deal about the ACA website having some technical issues. Thankfully, a couple people who actually knew something about websites and technical glitches set her ignorant arse straight. She tried to save face by pressing the issue, but was shown to be an even bigger moron doing it!!!

    I hope next time, Mrs. Ezra will shut up on Twitter about stuff that she knows very little about.

    • October 5, 2013 at 8:48 pm

      She and her self-promoting husband who seem to think the world owes them.

        Unlike the GOP, limousine liberals like Mr & Mrs Ezra are very much invested in looking and being smart. And when a technical expert makes you look stupid on Twitter, it has to sting. Something tells me she won’t be talking about the ACA website for a while….of course, as you said, she’ll quickly move on to the next topic to “stick it to Obama.”

  18. October 5, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    While the MSM are stickin’ by their “story” that our President has “floundered” in his Foreign Policy, it appears that the Obama administration has executed actions that eluded both of his predecessors, while staving off the mutinous House and MSM.

    Well done, sir.

    And don’t forget:

    The cartoon of Boehner walking behind the elephant with Speaker Cruz riding the elephant and Boehner walking behind picking up the sh*t, it fits Boehner perfectly. Perfectly !! Yesterday Boehner call himself getting mad, he says this is no “DAM” game here. My question is why not stand up to Ted Cruz and the Tea Party like that. Cruz walks over and take control of the House and all Boehner does is look like a wimp.

Boehner want that speaker ship so bad that he will allow 20-30 extremists Tea Party terrorists to drag him around like a rag doll. What will the history book say about John Boehner?

    Looks like someone had the lightbulb go off!!

    http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/10/05/gop-insider-tim-miller/

    A reporter by the name of Dylan Hock received a shocking e-mail on Thursday, October 3rd. The e-mail came from a GOP insider, Tim Miller. Miller apparently reached out to Hock, who works at Occupy Democrats, after having a crisis of conscience. After stating that he had decided to renounce the republican party, he went on to cite his reasons.

    โ€œMy plan, after years of agonizing over this, is to speak out against what is happening with my Republican Party; with the current crap thatโ€™s happening in Washington now as my last straw. Meaning, I want to call it like it is and explain that these guys are liars, taking advantage of the lesser-educated (what we have done successfully with southern whites for a generation now).โ€

    In his e-mail to Hock he said:

    โ€œI am officially a democrat, as of today.โ€

    Miller appears to be frustrated by the Tea Party, whom he implies are at the heart of the problems that he is seeing within the GOP. Referring to them as

    โ€œLiars, Cheats & Hypocrites (or HCL which is hydrochloride acid if I recall my high school chemistry class)โ€

    He goes on to say:

    โ€œThese Tea-party people are not Republicans. They are liars and cheatsโ€

    • October 5, 2013 at 9:56 pm

      Wow, DF, this is a pretty damning statement by this Tim Miller and I hope the first of many. People have to step forward and start calling the TP for what it is. The media will never do this, so it’s going to be one individual at a time whose story gets told on social media until the word spreads. This current fiasco is shining a harsh light on the cockroaches.

        I’m all in with people who condemn the Tea Party, but it leaves “mainstream” republicans off the hook. The GOP has been peddling a lot of ugliness for decades, let’s not forget that.

      October 5, 2013 at 9:59 pm

      Sad that it took him YEARS before finally making his move. He has known for years that people are lied to and yet he got along, continued to play the game.

      He’s still not being completely honest. With the public, but mostly with himself. He only calls out the tea party. He knows very well that in the last few years, mainstream republicans have played the game too. They’ve lied, used fear and hyperbole themselves.

      Moreover, Mr. Miller makes some reference to the manipulation of southern white low-educated folks, that has been going on for at least a generation. The Tea Party didn’t exist before 2009. So WHO manipulated those southern white people ? Oh, and he was there during the Clinton years… What is his assessment of the behavior of republicans during the Clinton years ? Of the constant demonization of Clinton, of the antics of Gingrich…

      I can appreciate what Mr. Miller does today because it takes some courage, but while we can praise him for his gesture, we have to make him go further, and admit that the WHOLE party is playing with fear, lies and hate, and has done so for a long time.

    This is all about causing utter disruption to the democratically elected President of the United States. All the rhetoric in the world cannot deny the aim is to “bring down the black guy”. They couldn’t do it in an election – despite all the attempts to stop the people voting – so this is the new ploy.

    The US media is a willing accomplice – I cannot decide if the GOP in congress – or the media – deserve the most blame. I would like to see a poll which lists the US media as one of the options in “who is to blame for this shutdown/dysfunction”

    I really got upset by this person whose profile says that their area of concern is with the black Diaspora.

    the moment the news broke about the Somalia and Libya operations, this person questioned WHY the US should be involved in Somalia.

    remember the following facts:

    – US has lost people and property from attacks carried out by these terrorists so by implication US has a direct reason to retaliate;

    – person represents concerns about the black Diaspora, yet ignores the carnage that was done on African soil resulting in the death of people from diverse backgrounds (but a very high number of these were people of African Descent.

    – this person is probably tweeting from the safety of a Western nation (profile indicates US), so far away from the chaos, so has no clue about (or chooses to ignore)the terror people who are under attack by these terrorist are facing.

    Since, I know people who have lost someone from these attacks, I felt obliged to challenge this person to face reality and not go into an automatic opposing position;

  23. October 5, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    Twitter is an odd thing. (I love it, but it’s odd at times.)

    Earlier today I saw on TOD that apparently @MHarrisPerry said that Boehner and our President were a lot alike, that they both “lead from behind.”

    How she can make that claim with a straight face is beyond me.

    Our President says what he means and means what he says. Candidate Obama never caved to the emoprog dKos, MSM. And can you imagine any crowds being ecstatic to see Boehner? They are as different as night and day.

    But the bizarre thing is that SWblueGA linked to an article written in July of this year by @JohnDickerson, specifically about both Boehner and our President leading from behind. I wanted to take a look at this article later, so I tweeted it (my system really doesn’t like having more than one TOD window open at a time), and I got a response from the author.

    Here’s SWblueGA’s comment.

    Food for thought? {It’s probably best to follow the link AND read the entire post BEFORE discussion of the points raised in this excerpt.}

    The End Game

    “n today’s Wall Street Journal, Gerald Seib pens a very interesting op-ed titled “The Deal That’s There for the Taking”, where he outlines what I believe the outcome of this contretemps is likely to be. I’ll call it the Mini-Grand Bargain. Here are the elements:

    The GOP gets a repeal of the medical device tax in the ACA and agrees to a rewriting of the sequester cuts plus new tax revenues raised by closing loopholes.
    Democrats get relief (amount TBD) from next year’s sequester level budget of $967 billion, versus their Senate Budget of $1058 billion. In return, they agree to chained CPI for Social Security and means testing for Medicare.

    The reason Seib says this “deal is there for the taking” is that all these items have already been put on the table, mostly in the Obama-Boehner summer 2011 negotiations. The obvious problem is what to do about the current impasse. How do we transition from here to a Mini-Grand Bargain? Here’s Seib’s last graph:

    For that to happen, Republicans might have to agree to at least some short-term funding of the government to allow time for this broader conversation. Or the White House might have to find a way to back away from its insistence that it won’t negotiate until the government is reopened and the debt ceiling raised.

    Possible? Yes. Probable? We’ll see.

    Here’s Seib talking about why Obama may come off his No Negotiation position:

      This doesn’t sound too terrible. But I strongly believe that PBO shouldn’t negotiate fully until the government is reopened. I’m not exactly sure what “means testing for Medicare”. I think closing loopholes, getting rid of big oil and farm subsidies, at least a half repeal of the sequester and a slight tax on the 1% is more than fair.

    • 88 globalcitizenlinda
      October 5, 2013 at 10:43 pm

      part that is of concern is that the

      – Chained CPI would get the left incensed and we would promptly the members of the progressive caucus back on the tube insulting PBO & rapturing the solidarity;

      – medical devise tax is a funding mechanism for ObamaCare and represents the contribution from the medical device manufacturers; this is the portion they put on the table in exchange for more clients. if this goes, then other healthcare industries will demand their contribution to go away too.

      I have no clue how these will be resolved

      • 89 Obama Grandmama
        October 5, 2013 at 11:45 pm

        ACA is a comprehensive law and was detailed requiring many parts to make it work and save money. Taking away part of the negotiated funding would upset the balance needed gcl has mentioned. Doing anything prior to voting would set a precedence that PBO does not want to set. It also would be a signal to the GOP to start picking apart ACA.

    • October 5, 2013 at 10:51 pm

      “Or the White House might have to find a way to back away from its insistence that it wonโ€™t negotiate until the government is reopened and the debt ceiling raised.”

      imho, Ain’t going to happen, VC.

      Seib is but another yapper who has failed to grok what this is all about.

      The core issue is an attack on the Office of the Presidency and an abrogation of Congress’s two core Constitutional duties – pass a budget, pay the bills.

      President Obama will not negotiate anything until the #GOP fulfills their two obligations – Clean CR & Clean Debit Limit Adjustment.

      Anyone thinking he’s bluffing …. well, every day they hold onto that delusion means they will only suffer the more when their fantasy crumbles.

        ‘Ain’t gonna happen’

        Bobfr, so does the author of the post, Jim Stuart, feel. That’s why I was trying to encourage folks to go read the entire post! Mr. Stuart has tremendous respect for the President and his positions, and I admire the way he presents his positions. I’d say he definitely has PBO’s back.

        • October 5, 2013 at 11:24 pm

          The blog post, VC, is fantastic!!! I was referencing Seib’s pedantic drivel.

          And, I particularly like Jim Stuart’s speculation, here:

          “If Obama is going to do this, why not announce it up front and end the uncertainty over the debt ceiling? I think he wants the GOP to pay a steep price for their hostage taking; and he knows that unprecedented Executive action is better taken, then defended, than offered as a trial balloon before the fact.”

          That rings true. Hopefully, for the Nation and the global economy, enough pressure is brought on Boehner that he stops short of unleashing the economic equivalent of war – because as we all know, once a war starts, the outcome becomes so very, very hard to control and the damage has always been way worse than any strategist predicted.

          Thank you for the blog post, VC!! I should have been a bit more careful in delineating Seib from Stuart!!

It was tucked into a corner, and after going through all the magazine racks in the store several times, I was about to give up when I bent my head and there it was! That was my third store too, so I was quite happy. They also happened to have one copy of ‘New, New Deal’ which I had been looking for since January, so now I have to make time to read them.

I bought The New, New Deal a year ago, but still haven’t read it as I know it will disturb me deeply. I more wanted to put a few bucks into the pocket of Grunwald, because the book was a brilliant expose of what was going on in the dark, dank dungeons of our supposedly honorable elected representatives. I bought Life of Pi a the same time, read it all at once, then read it again! Did not know it was being made into a movie, which I have not seen.

In truth, I’ve had it for YEARS and YEARS and have never read it. That’s of course not unusual for me. I have had this book obsession all my life where I can’t resist buying them, but some get reread more than once and others get passed over awaiting the right moment. ๐Ÿ™„ Maybe, just maybe, ‘Life of Pi’s moment has come.

    found it hard to believe that the Al Shabab militants in Somalia took hours to know identity of the attacking force during the raid.

    they initial reports said ” white people coming in from the sea … using speed boats … probably from Turkey or UK”;

    now if all my movie watching is to be believed, a one hour operation could not occur without any amount of cussing from American forces;

    today was different, no cussing?

    or is it because the militants had convinced themselves that US would never operate again in Somalia.

    • October 5, 2013 at 10:43 pm

      The movies are way wrong, Linda.

      The professionalism of our Special Ops folk is beyond exceptional. Their discipline in communications during any engagement is one of the most essential components of how they operate. No chatter. No yelling and screaming. Highly controlled, very tactically specific info is what flows, at a low db level because they are all wired. I suspect the only reason those Al Shabab dudes finally knew who hit them is because some media flack informed them, or they read it on the intetubes ๐Ÿ™‚

        October 5, 2013 at 10:51 pm

        yeah, the local & western media in the region told the militia.

        otherwise, hours after initial attack, they did not even include Americans in the possible raiding force.

        I have watched a few documentaries about the US military and other operatives that work “in the shadows” and I agree that they value precision & focus on mission at hand.

        it is just funny to goad all those producers who routinely impress on us about the level of cussing during active operations

          “it is just funny to goad all those producers who routinely impress on us about the level of cussing during active operations.”

          Keep deriding them, Linda, they deserve it because they dishonor the professionalism, bravery and exceptional outcomes our Special Ops folk achieve.

    Please tell me what do President Obama suppose to negotiate with the GOP about? The Affordable Care Act is law of the land it is here to stay and the President is not going to negotiate it away. And I don’t expect him too, nor want him too. The Republicans are acting like terrorists and we shouldn’t negotiate with terrorists.

      Per link in tweet:

      “Bolder policies are needed to bolster U.S. economic competitiveness through education, science, and infrastructure investment, as well as to redress runaway inequality that distorts economic incentives and undercuts Americaโ€™s middle-class engine of growth.

      But none of this is possible when a minority faction can take its own party hostage, paralyzing the government that plays such an indispensable role in our complex, modern market economy.’

      A here ends thew lesson once again: do not f__k with PBO when it comes to our national security in any way shape or form, foreign or domestic. He is a cool operator who takes the long view, plans meticulously and knows how to wait for the optimum time to strike. He does not bluster or bull shit. he says what he means and means what he says and he has the cajones to back it up. Boehner and company need to pack up their shit and go home because they have been beat even if they have not realized it yet.

    There are Low Information Americans from all walks of life. Many are really decent people, they just don’t pay attention to anything but their immediate interests. Corporate America, the ReMAGGOTian Party, Koch Bros, et al DEPEND on these folks to be subjects in their pernicious, massive misinformation campaign. NO KUDOS to these filthy, greedy, disgusting ASSHOLES for succeeding with their mercenary tactics, regardless of the effectiveness. It’s a cancer. We will beat it.

      Kristof is absolutely spot-on! The Republicans, led by the tea baggers, are “Governing by Blackmail.”

    What would happen if the Senate Dems passed a spending resolution that ended the sequester and brought spending limits up to help feed the poor and run Head-start, etc.? Every time they cut something, Dems raise it? Nothing else is working. My idjit Congresswoman sent me the dumbest response. I let her have it, politely. From her letter it sounded like she remembers what she did yesterday, let alone last two years.
