    Why would MSNBC give Alex Baldwin a show? I rather see Lawrence O’Donnell come on Friday night.

      Truthfully, to see a new face and voice that I haven’t grown to somewhat detest during certain moon cycles (theirs, not mine) is refreshing. We’ll have to see how it goes. I like his first guest, at least!

      I think Lawrence is satisfied with his Mon thru Thursday work week. I read somewhere that at one point he was ready to call it a day.

    Thanks. Our President is so wonderful! Why would 31% think he is responsible for the shutdown. The pundits let these folks get away with saying it’s the President shutdown. Their question, should be “did he vote for it?” If you voted for it, then it’s what you wanted.

      I ask that question yesterday, who are the 31% who blame POTUS for the shutdown?

      Carolyn, after these last two weeks, I believe no numbers. No polls. No Rethugs. No MSM. No emoprogs. No left/right wing extremists.
      I come here for everything. I hear listen to the hearts,minds and souls of you guys here. I trust PBO.

      We have been through to so much and these pundits are so irrelevant now.
      We have a President who is standing tall and doing the job WE elected him twice to do.
      A lot of people have suffered unnecessarily, but we will get through this together. So the pundits and the folks making all the noises are “Talking Loud and Saying Nothing.”

    Congrats on 1st VC!!!

    From the bottom of the previous thread …

    … And, I hope everyone reads the exceptional tribute to our President that HZ posted in close to the last comment on the previous thread. In fact, Chips or UT if you can you might want to include it in an FP.

        Thanks Birthday girl for this tweet! I am sure it’s no secret that I respect Senator Harry Reid. I think he has been consistently supportive of President Obama. Some people at TOD have continuously denigrated him. But I don’t think they realize what he has to deal with as Senate Majority Leader. Democratic Senators come from Red, Purple, and very Blue States. Reid, himself, comes from a State that may be characterized as Purple. Trying to balance the interests of these Senators sometimes requires a great deal of give and take.

          October 12, 2013 at 4:05 pm

          I’m with ya on your respect for Senator Harry Reid, nath. Love how he supports President Obama. I always try to send him a “Give ’em hell, Harry!” note, when I see what he’s trying to do. Also agree with your other assessment of the big road he has to walk so gingerly, with all of the little factions in the Senate. Enjoy your weekend!

    Might not have been a real friendly chat between Malala and PBO

    • 58 hopefruit2
      October 12, 2013 at 12:07 am

      Because she expressed this to PBO doesn’t mean the chat wasn’t friendly. For all we know PBO may actually have brought up the subject and welcomed the opportunity to explain the rationale for using drones to Malala….That’s the kind of person PBO is, and I’m inclined to believe that Malala is someone who knows how to listen, while respectfully articulating her own concerns/fears.

      Also, we don’t know how true that “report” is. And even if it is, goes back to my first comment.

      Here is a response from another tweeter.

        Thank you so much, Hopefruit2, for always insisting on truthful reporting! Personally, I want to see a video/transcript of Malala saying exactly what Rajiv Chandrasekaran claims she said.

    Ok, laugh into the morning, indeed.

    It wasnโ€™t thousands or even hundreds as they promised, but perhaps a few dozen truckers protested the government shutdown Friday by taking to I-95.

    The group dubbed โ€œRide for the Constitutionโ€ met in Doswell and circled the Capital Beltway Friday morning. The group said they plan to do so until Sunday afternoon.

    Some truckers told CBS 6 News Thursday night they hoped to slow traffic โ€“ to show their dissatisfaction with what they call corruption on Capitol Hill.

    CBS 6 News was told several truckers were pulled over this morning for driving 10 m.p.h. , but no one was issued a ticket.

    The Virginia Trucking Association released a statement late Friday saying the organization is not involved with the event.

    โ€œThe Virginia Trucking Association is in no way involved with this โ€˜protestโ€™ and does not endorse or condone the activities of these few individuals. We do not support any unlawful or unsafe activities that impede or disrupt traffic flow on Virginiaโ€™s highways.โ€

      I live about 15 miles from an Air Force Base town. I would
      guess about 90% of base workers vote Republican and
      support the GOP talk about shutting down Govt because
      of too much spending.

      Those same folks were crying like babies when the last
      round Of BRAC base closing threatened “their” gravy.

      Govt spending only matters for the other guy. Not when
      it threatens “hardworking patriots” like them.

      Love that Chaplain, his voice and the not-so-subliminal messages he sneaks in …

      From his bio:

      Barry C. Black (born November 1, 1948) is the 62nd Chaplain of the United States Senate. He was elected to this position on June 27, 2003, becoming the first African American and the first Seventh-day Adventist to hold this office. The Senate elected its first chaplain in 1789.

      He served for over 27 years as a chaplain in the United States Navy, rising to the rank of Rear Admiral and ending his career as the Chief of Chaplains of the United States Navy, the senior chaplain of the United States Navy Chaplain Corps. He officially retired from the Navy on August 15, 2003.

        I love those things, too. Was acquainted with him when I was stationed in DC; we both belonged to NNOA. After I retired, found out he had (1) been an associate pastor at my cousin’s church in Philly, and (2) whet through the Admiral’s class with another cousin.

        He has always been one to speak his mind, tell it like it is. Find it interesting, he was appointed by a rethug congress and retained by the dems; rethugs aren’t too happy with him these days…

          Love hearing all of your stories of your diverse career and where it took you (although I was a civilian, I’m an ol’ Navy junkie). Must be great to know some of the background of people such as Chaplain Black!

    Did anyone get a chance to see Alec Baldwin’s new MSNBC show, “Up Late”? I thought Bill DiBlasio sounded very real, mature, and ready to tackle the big job of NYC mayor, although I really have very little knowledge of him and my brain’s too tired to comprehend all that much.

    In any event, good job, Alec! I do think he was as good an interviewer as has come along in a bit. (My own personal favorite was his choice of a set. Ahhh, to be sitting in a booth in a New York City restaurant right now! The set had the same look as the Edward Hopper painting, “Nighthawks,” if anyone’s familiar with it, which I happen to have a print of, hanging in my home. I’d like to live in some of those paintings of Hopper’s – Ha!)

      Hi Bobfr – I saw this post on the last thread (after everyone had moved along)

      โ€œThese past five years, these months and weeks feels like I am watching a historical movie unfolding. And for the first time I my life, I have a front row seat. I am a participant. Every week is proceeding as if I am reading a script. So much is happening so many places at different times so fast. And it is all coming together for the good.โ€

      It made me think of how we speak of the times of our grandparents – and before – we talk of the history they made and the wars they fought – and I love that our grandchildren & those who come later will know that we were part of the sweeping change that saw the election (twice) of Barack Hussein Obama and how he refused to bow to tyranny and hate.

    • October 12, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    So now the media is saying the President MUST give the republicans something – so they don’t feel so bad about trying to blackmail the country for the past 2 weeks. Didn’t hear anyone saying the GOP needed to give the President something – for the past 5 years.

    You cannot “give” to blackmailers, you cannot pay people who wish to send their country into financial ruin. The GOP needs to know this

  44. October 12, 2013 at 8:05 am

    The news this morning kept saying negotiations are taking place whatever that means.
