    Thanks NW. I see that Senator Turtle’s face looks like someone who is about to cry.

    Congratulations, Vetivera and No Child! Republicans are constantly outflanked by President Obama because they never seem to learn that their caricature of him as weak, simple, and friendless is NOTHING like the reality of the brilliant man Americans overwhelmingly elected twice. HE has the mandate, not them. We will not let these haters destroy all the hope and change that has been so hard-won.

      AND we will find our best Dem candidate for 2016 and keep the White House – and the country – safe from Republican vandalism for another eight years!

      They are literally blinded by racist hate and their inability to “see” the real PBO prevents them from waging effective attacks. The GOP has the billionaires, the corporations and the media firmly on their side, and yet PBO keeps moving forward. It really is checkers vs. chess.

    LOL
    I was almost in tears election night 2014. Though I think GOP can still do considerable damage to this country (by essentially not doing shit) it gives me hope that Dems are striking back, standing firm and not putting up with bullshit. Plus Obama’s in the White House and is done playing with the Republican game players.
    So I guess it’s not entirely bad so far but I really do wish GOP would aim their laser focus on helping Americans rather than doing whatever they can to undermine or fight Obama in order to score points with their kooky base.

      “I really do wish GOP would aim their laser focus on helping Americans rather than doing whatever they can to undermine or fight Obama in order to score points with their kooky base.”

      Trumpdog – I continue to be flummoxed on how in the hell the GOP got to this point. At first I thought…well they will step up and do the right thing and then years passed….

      It is embarrassing to think that anyone especially our elected officials can be this ass backwards and ignorant.

      Roberta isn’t she amazing? It’s like she gives us Cliff Notes for what is going in politics and in the US.

      I have been so spoiled, I tend to get caught up via Nerdy’s tweets first because I know she has already captured all of the current events of the day.

    “But for plenty of Israelis—and Jews watching around the world—the address was a disaster. It jeopardized what many in Israel regard as the bedrock of Israeli security: bipartisan US support. With some fifty Democrats staying away, this could prove to be the moment when Israel starts to become just another issue on which the two parties disagree. That made some Jews anxious. Others simply squirmed with discomfort at the cavalier use and abuse of cherished Jewish symbols. The festival of Purim, Moses, Elie Wiesel—Netanyahu pressed all of them into service. (Admittedly, Wiesel’s standing is not quite what it was.)

    None of this bothers Bibi. Isolation only convinces him he’s right. Much as he loves the adoration of Congress, which has become a home venue, the hatred of his enemies makes him stronger. Because it makes him more like you know who.

    As if to confirm the Israeli PM’s historical fantasy, his host, House Speaker John Boehner—whose unilateral invitation triggered the whole controversy— presented him with a parting gift, a statue of the only world leader besides Netanyahu to have been granted the privilege of speaking to Congress three times. The Israeli prime minister left Washington with his very own bust of Winston Churchill.”

    bbl ….

        The right wing haters have really been attacking our FLOTUS about the school lunches. Talking about how kids were starving because they weren’t eating that horrible school lunches. I say if their kids didn’t like the school lunches and they were starving then pack them what they want in a bag, something like pizza, chicken mcnuggets, french fries, soda, doughnuts, cookies. I have to ask myself when have wanting kids to eat healthy become so controversy?

          Thom Hartmann too. He has had Bernie Sanders on numerous times and said that the administration would not let anyone take notes, they had to review the agreement at one location, couldn’t get a copy of it, won’t let anyone fully read what’s in it, blah blah blah blah whine whine whine. They are all chicken little the sky is falling, Obama is selling us out with tpp, keystone pipeline, immigration, doma, daca, etc. I trust PBO every time and wait patiently for him to come out and say whats what.
