    df, I so envy you tomorrow! You will be thrilled. We saw then Senator Obama in March 2007 just after he announced and started a nationwide tour. At that time his appearances were fundraisers, so we paid $25 each to see him, the best $50 we ever spent. He was magnetic then, and he was saying the same things, concerned about the same items he’s concerned about now. Can’t wait to hear your report.
    How were you chosen to go? I read that you got your ticket at Will Call, so assume you didn’t have to wait in line.

    Loved your mayor’s reaction!!! Absolutely the right one, and at least your gov was polite and shook hands, not like former witch guv.

      Thanks, carolyn:) I’d give all the money I have just to see this man now….I didn’t have to wait in line at all. I just went down there after work yesterday and they had it waiting for me. The hardest part was finding the place and parking. Our mayor, Greg Stanton is a Democrat and a great mayor for the city of Phoenix. Gov. Ducey is newly elected Republican that even more right of that wicked witch we just got rid of. Koch Bro. funded, if you get my drift. Going to be painful and pathetic around here for the next 4 yrs, but maybe people will start paying attention. Glad he was smiling and at least polite.

        Did you call and reserve it? Or were you chosen for some reason? I missed the original post about this. I figure I can chat with you, since you’re probably not sleeping anyway……..

          I let one of my friends and fellow Obama supporter know that he was coming to town, she had not heard that news yet. I let it be known that I would love to go see him..she knows that I worked so hard on both elections and I actually left my job in 2008 to work on his behalf. I had never done this before for any Dem candidate, but knew in my bones that he was something very special and I wanted to be a part of that. Luckily, I got hired back under the wire because there was a hiring freeze during the recession. There I was, my husband being let go from work, me without a job but working my ass off for this man I believed in with all my heart…..he lost 3 jobs in 2 years time (husband) and had to reinvent himself ( thank god for a good education!!) All during this time, I was battling the banks for my house and a rental that we owned…there I was…still working and calling and canvassing and registering voters…..Anyway, we did this all again every election since. She knows how hard I’ve worked and how much this means to me. She made it happen…my OFA angel:)

    Ok Nerdy, you’re making me afraid of myself. Once again I. am. speechless. The information is priceless.

  8. January 7, 2015 at 10:12 pm

    Thanks for the news collection, Nerdy.

    And, I’m sure amk will be along soon, so this is for him. (God help me.)

  9. January 7, 2015 at 10:16 pm

    I’m crushed.

  10. January 7, 2015 at 10:16 pm

    NW, you are the WH Press Corp. all by yourself.
    I have not bought a newspaper since PBO was elected. I stopped watching MSM news on all channels around about the same time.
    I come here for daly updates of national international news and public speeches of our President.
    You have a gift that is absolutely truly amazing!
    TY

      Ain’t that the truth.

      And NW woke up firing on all cylinders — very comprehensive twitter round up at an early hour.

      The talentless and lazy WHPC can only dream of tweets that are as comprehensive, on-point and succinct that NW routinely live-tweets, real-time, during President Obama’s speeches.

      Amazing range of tweets on a very news-filled day. Thanks again, NW.

    Holy crap. I couldn’t sleep so I thought I’d check in to TOD. I watched the local and national news this evening. Not one word on the NAACP in Colorado. But plenty on Paris. Unfrackingbelievable. Our Media is so useless.

        DF I wonder if we crossed paths back in 2008. I did a lot of work at OFA starting in 2008. Lots of phone banking and canvassing. I then was going to go to Albuquerque the last week in October but the arrangements didn’t get finalized in time. The President visited OFA there that weekend. I was totally bummed. I went the following week just before the election but was sent to Farmington. I took a week’s vacation from my job, rented a car and drove over there by myself. It was a great experience but would have been the trip of a lifetime if I had met the President. Do you remember Ashley Pinedo?

        • 58 desertflower

          I don’t remember anyone named Ashley, but that means nothing. I’m great with faces, terrible with names.

      29,001,210. Where do all the hits come from – I suspect the GOP, trying to figure out what the real world is all about.

        That could be it.

        But I like to think it’s lurking Obama supporters, not to mention all of us, 100%.

    http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2015/01/congresss-first-act-was-to-declare-war-on-math.html

    The Congressional Budget Office is a 40-year-old institution that has acquired enormous clout within Washington by virtue of its reputation for ideological neutrality. It furnishes Congress and the public with budgetary estimates that, if necessarily imperfect (as all predictions must be), are arrived at fairly. It is also a perfect modern expression of an old Progressive Era–ideal: that policymakers should be informed by the work of impartial experts. That the conservative majority has set out to corrupt this institution as one of its first major acts is, therefore, perfectly fitting.

    Another Important Read.

    I don’t like feeling sucked in … I’m a bit surprised that this Col. Davis guy, who looked to me like a feisty Democrat with a sharp, funny tongue, and who normally seemed to support the President, is now bashing him and his administration … over his personal deal.

    From his profile: “Guantanamo chief prosecutor 2005-07. Retired Air Force Colonel. Asst Prof @howardlawschool. Truth and principles monger … views are my own.”

    Then this:

    And this, his sub-comment response to being called out:

    Col. Morris Davis ‏@ColMorrisDavis
    @notropis01 No. I’m noting the administration’s hypocrisy on the sanctity of speech … kind of like torture is crime except when we do it.

    Don’t get me wrong, if he has something on Bush-Cheney and the GITMO situation, I’d like it to get “out there,” I just don’t want to be along for any ride. Of course, these lessons are learned every day, if we follow our political process!

    So, here’s to “freedom of speech,” Col. Davis, but I just unfollowed ya. When the story became YOU and your personal platform, you lost me. The bigger they think they are, the harder they fall. (And, yes, I take anything anti-Obama as personal, until somebody convinces me of the error of my ways, and I’m proud of it.)

    “Simon was speaking just after he was sworn in Monday at an inauguration ceremony for Minnesota’s constitutional officers. He recalled that when the landmark federal act passed in 1965, it was very controversial. Present in the audience was one of the people who voted for the act — Walter Mondale.

    “And Vice President Mondale knows, he was then U.S. Senator and was part of that delegation, the members of our (Minnsota congressional) delegation disagreed sharply on many prominent issues of the day: Vietnam, Medicare, immigration,” said Simon.

    “But when the roll was called on the voting rights act…,” Simon’s voice trailed off and he paused and struggled with his emotions. He then continued.
    “Minnesota’s delegation spoke with one voice. All of our voting members — senators and representatives, Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives — voted to affirm the fundamental right for all Americans to have a direct voice in their government. That is the Minnesota way.”
