    Okay–I thought I heard PBO mention Walmart & raising wage in the same sentence – and I thought “Walmart?!?!” But now I understand what he was referring to.

    Hmm…. 🙂

      I said it here…..that Marco Rubio would be Lucky if he was to win in 2016 for re-election. He was a winner in 2010 for there were 3 people…Crist, Marco and Meek/s(sp)
      No way he is even a Nod or a 🙂 on the presidential GOPer political womb
      He is just building his Resume for TV Punditry, lucrative speaking fees and a darling for rightie Think Tanks looking for a “Cuban” Latino Token representative in their midst.

    And you wonder why I haven’t watched MSNBC for over 2 years now? This is the kind of blatant dishonesty I just won’t support…. Where the Phuck was Tamron or her MSNBC bosses when PBO was stumping for the few Dems who were serious enough to let him campaign for them?!?!

    • February 20, 2015 at 12:13 pm

      I can tell Tamron Hall were that fire was? For most Democrats they decided to put the fire out because Democrats ran away from the success of this President. Like cowards they refuse to have him campaign for them. I wish I could remind Ms. Hall of that.

      The MSM/GOP agenda requires that PBO always be criticized, facts and reality be damned. They have been pulling this exact same shit for his entire Presidency.

      Being an AA and being judged by a double standard is NOT NEW. Americans are seeing how AA’s are treated even when we achieve the highest position. Thankfully, PBO’s achievements are beyond those of his 20th/21st predecessors but watch the goal post keep shifting and moving as he exceeds them.

        Excellent comment. My greatest hope is that the treatment PBO has been subjected to, by fake friend and foe alike, will give folks an insight into the goalpost shifting and racist double standards AA’s have faced in this country for CENTURIES. If they can treat a man of PBO’s stature and accomplishment with such contempt…….

      Thanks for sharing the article. This:

      This isn’t about protecting life.

      This isn’t about saving some fetus or about end of life decisions.

      This is about power and control.

      This is about religious fanaticism.

      This is about forcing compliance with religious beliefs, just the same as any Ayatollah.

      For a nation which prides itself on exceptionalism, there is nothing exceptional about that.

    • February 20, 2015 at 12:23 pm

      That puppet of the Koch Brothers wouldn’t dare speak against what that racists Rudy Giuliani said. Walker knows who the Republican base is and if he had said that he disagree with Giuliani that racists base would be mad with him. So he did what any Republican would do, he remain quiet. Shows you the new batch of Republicans will be just like the old batch.

      It did not disqualify Boner, Rmoney, Rick Perry, AnnRand Paul, all the GOP past and current hopefuls are rewarded for every nasty thing they say about a Democrat and especially PBO. It is just a badge of honor because the so-called liberal media does not call them out or show the publics distaste for this kind of talk.

      • February 20, 2015 at 1:30 pm

        You are so right. I remember what that John Sununu said about President Obama during the 2012 election and not one Republican step forward and said he shouldn’t had said that. That is how it has been from the minute he walked into that Oval Office. And they have shown no respect toward the First Lady or even the Obama daughters.

      amk posted a bbc link on this last night — my backup laptop is a Lenovo, but I purchased it last Jun/July.

      Apparently the problem is with computers sold after August.

      Surprisingly, the best source of info I’ve found on this was Daily Mail UK, which gave instructions for identifying sites with certificates on your computer — since I’m tech challenged, had no idea how to do this, and you have to search Windows 8 just to locate the frigging Control Panel.

      It’s so sad that so many people were fooled by the Y2K doom and gloom with our computers, atms, bank accounts, credit cards scare and hype that I think people just refuse to believe the government anymore regarding climate change. As long as they are not personally affected every day they just don’t care.

      • February 20, 2015 at 1:23 pm

        The Koch Brothers and the RW have done a massive orchestrated hit job on the science to not only misinform on the politics but to distort the basic facts. The truth is, many people ARE being greatly affected by dramatic changes in our weather patterns, from these extreme storms in the East and extreme drought conditions in the West. But the average doesn’t see the connection because they’ve been bamboozled. We need to get the word out that the long-term affects are MASSIVE, complex and debilitating and they’re on a global scale.

        What Meta said.

        The most populated portion of the US *is* directly affected by climate change NOW.

        West coast:
        No rain in San Francisco last month (first time in recorded history)
        Snow levels at 8K feet in the Sierras, very little snow pack which is what CA relies on for water
        Weather in Alaska is more like May than January/February

        East coast:
        Siberia-like February

        MSM has its marching orders not to report on the weather in the US as an indicator of Climate Change, just as they obediently roll over for the NRA.

    WASHINGTON — Jeb Bush personally lobbied the secretary of health and human services, while his father was vice president, on behalf of a Miami figure who would later flee the country accused of one of the greatest Medicare frauds in the program’s history.

    Bush pressed then-HHS Secretary Margaret Heckler to give the man’s HMO a waiver so that it could accept larger sums of Medicare money than it otherwise would have been allowed, Heckler told The Huffington Post.

    Miguel Recarey Jr., head of the health maintenance organization International Medical Centers (IMC) who often boasted of connections to the Miami Cuban mafia, paid Bush $75,000 in the mid-1980s. Bush has acknowledged receiving the payment but said it was tendered for real estate consultation. But the deal he consulted on was never closed.

    The IMC affair involved hundreds of millions of public dollars. In 1992, as his father, President George H.W. Bush, ran for re-election, Jeb Bush denied having reached out to Heckler on Recarey’s behalf. He said that he had only spoken to a lower-level HHS official to ask that Recarey be given a “fair hearing” with regard to his application to renew a waiver that allowed IMC to receive more than 50 percent of its revenue from Medicare. (The waiver had been granted as part of an HMO pilot project that was set to expire. The renewal was ultimately not granted.)

    But Heckler herself, in a 2012 interview with HuffPost, confirmed that Jeb Bush did indeed lobby her personally — and that his input played a major role in her thinking. She was in favor of renewing the waiver, she said, although she left office before doing so.

    She said she took his call, and took it seriously. “Jeb was one that I and friends of the Bushes always thought would be president,” Heckler said.
