      OMG, I was thinking that we were going to have to follow this for another year and wondering what all the polling was for this early. LOL, didn’t know it was THIS November. Thank God and glad to see that Hillary’s former POS (oops Campaign Advisor) might soon have a more worthwhile job. 🙂

    They can insult him all they want but he is still and will remain President of the United States until January 2017!

    And then he will be written about in history books for generations to come!!

    At least two-thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity: idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religious or political ideas.- Aldous Huxley

    While watching Rev. Al, I learn that there are some Republicans who is comparing Obamacare to Katrina and the Iraq war. I had to say “What the Hell”. Thousands Americans died in Katrina, 4000 soldier died in Iraq war, the war cost us a trillion dollars, and Obamacare is having trouble with the health care website. Where is the comparison?

    Bill deBlasio debate #2 coming up in minutes on CBS NY.

    The other news item I’m especially interested in today is that Ohio is joining the Medicaid expansion and how many other GOP governors will come to their senses and do what is right for their constituents.

    • October 22, 2013 at 7:00 pm

      “…. how many other GOP governors will come to their senses and do what is right for their constituents.”

      Well, the insurance companies better make them come to their senses soon because those GOP Governors, by not implementing the #ACA are accelerating the emergence of Medicare as Single Payer.

      Hope soon to be Mayor Bill deBlasio does exceptionally well, Vicki!! Rooting for him, for sure.

      Booman has a piece today where he lays out how it’s becoming more likely. I’ve been writing about it since I started blogging. It’s in the air.

      • October 22, 2013 at 7:28 pm

        As you know, LL, I’ve been tweeting (and writing to) Madame Speaker for quite some time on the issue. I do not consider it far fetched. It is the only path Rs in anything other than ‘pure red’ districts should consider following if they want to remain Federal employees in 2015 🙂

      • October 22, 2013 at 8:01 pm

        Good piece by Booman – I had only seen the last portion of it earlier. Obviously, agree. Hope folk continue to send encouraging messages to Madame Speaker, Whip Hoyer, Rep Clyburn and others – including the 87 Rs who voted to re-open the government and not default. We only need 18 to join in with the 200 Dems to make it happen. Would be nice to 30 or 40.

    So, as we count down the days to the missus’ gainful employment, I’m enjoying the last of her feasts. Today? Slow-cooker roast with potatoes, carrots, celery, and onion.

    I plan to use the slow cooker A LOT this winter. I know she won’t want to cook once she starts working, and I’ve been spoiled by having her home and doing most of the cooking, so I likewise won’t want to rush home and make dinner.

      SOOOOOO nice to know that after a long day that dinner is ready when you are:) Wish I knew more recipes that I trusted for the slow cooker other than pot roast:) Smells good though….

    This explains so much…

    About how Fox News can have people on who spew lies about their health insurance premiums. About how it’s obvious the intent of red-state Govs who refuse federal medicaid expansion are aware of the negative impact to their state, but will blame adverse outcomes on Obama.

    “nn and Rodger Lenhardt were in for a jolt when they received their notice from Blue Cross Blue Shield recently. It said their monthly health insurance cost would triple – to $859.42 a month – next year.

    Under closer inspection, however, the Lenhardts discovered a different story: By switching policies and taking advantage of federal subsidies, they will be able to offset most of their monthly premium costs, giving the farming couple highly discounted insurance.”

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/10/21/the-tea-party-not-democrats-or-republicans-is-the-problem.html

    The Tea Party is the most destructive force in American politics today. Over the last few weeks, it has demonstrated again that its intent is not to shake up the establishment but to burn down the village. As a Democrat, I disagree with its policy positions, but its policy positions alone are not what make the Tea Party so dangerous. What makes the Tea Party dangerous is its members’ willful disregard for the most basic tenets of American democracy. They do not believe in the legitimacy of our president. They do not believe in the legitimacy of decisions handed down by our Supreme Court. Unlike President Obama, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, or a host of other Democratic and Republican lawmakers who grasp the basic reality of politics, they have never, not once shown a willingness to compromise on anything. Merely uttering the word is enough to draw a primary challenge.

    The GOP is at war with itself. And as tempting as it might be for Democrats to gloat from the sidelines, it is in all of our interests to make sure the Tea Party doesn’t win.

    Jon Favreau. Must Read.
