      Good morning TOD.

      No child, I am so glad you posted this.
      Today, The front page propaganda of the NY Times, in a piece written by former Cheney-ite, Peter Baker, digs up a so-called “expert” who declares that PBO has no foreign policy credit so if the Iran deal fails PBO has nothing.

      Laughable. But important because it signals what the GOP will try to run on in 2016—foreign policy. Which in the RW view is that USA must be the Biggest Baddest Bully in the world.

      Huff Po is telling the truth here. Good for them!!!!

    Very sad… very strange after such a flawless election.

    Welcome back Mr. SOS! You deserve some rest this weekend. Happy Easter.

    Morning. Yesterday was the kind of day that makes you want to put a big star on your calendar so you never forget it. Our President and SOS Kerry achieved the kind of historic turning point that would have been the stuff of legends in any other era. We are a divisive, twisted, cynical nation and only half of us will recognize this historic achievement for what it is, while the other half throws brickbats at it and tries to minimize it. We can’t shrug this one off and let the naysayers win. This time, we’ve got to be louder, smarter and more persistent in fighting back.

      Peace loving people will agree with you. But don’t expect your sentiments to find an echo under the GOP leadership in Congress. These warmongers are planning all sorts of things to provoke a war. And they have a loyal ally: nut-an-YAHOO!

        I know, NCLB, but the peace seekers represent the majority in this country and we need to be very loud in telling Congress that this time we won’t stand for their shenanigans.

      PBO is doing in reality what the GOP can only dream of. Deep down they wonder how he does it. They know he is brilliant. They just can’t accept it. Their loss.

    not good jobs numbers… 😦

    HOWEVER I know that Obama will use this as a means to push forward jobs plans to help improve the economy. I swear though one flimsy report and the right is trying to seize anything to prove that Obama is a ‘failed’ president.GOP are truly the pathetic party.

    • April 3, 2015 at 9:04 am

      Jeff, I had the same thought. But POTUS will call on Congress to re-focus on job growth and wage increase. If only Congress had ears…

      One jobs report means nothing. Over the past several months the jobs numbers have beat expectations. You can’t expect every report to be the same, but the fact is that the economy is creating more jobs than before.

        April 3, 2015 at 9:19 am

        I know that. However it’s pretty funny to watch the republicans and thus they really have gotten more pathetic and desperate than ever. Their idea of a jobs bill is to push for more discrimination and anti-abortion laws.

      there is reality, and there is wishful thinking. In no economy, job grows eternally.

    Law for new mothers saved after shaming of Alabama legislator
    Rachel Maddow tells the story of Alabama State Sen. Larry Stutts, a former doctor, who tried to repeal a law to help new mothers, Rose’s Law, that is named after one of his patients who died in his care. Stutts changed his mind amid widespread public outrage.

    Mornin’ Chips!! I loved the FLOTUS show with Jimmy Fallon! 🙂 And that dress she wore, wow! That’s perfection. I wasn’t crazy about her clothes and hairstyle when she on her trip to Japan but she looked gorgeous last night. And damn, she can outperform Jimmy Fallon with her interpretive dance!

    • April 3, 2015 at 9:40 am

      Good morning Forus50 and TOD. Watched FLOTUS last night with Jimmy Fallon and enjoyed it so much I watched it again this morning. I SL love her and our President.

    • April 3, 2015 at 9:53 am

      forus50, As we love to say, we meaning this country is bless to have POTUS and FLOTUS. To just think of 2017 brings sadness to my heart. But I won’t think of it. It’s find not to agree with everything FLOTUS wear, what I always tell people I might not like that outfit she is wearing but I have such respect for the woman who is wearing it. I stayed up to watch FLOTUS last night and she was great as usual. I should make myself a Mom Dance video.

    A great article from Spandan on the Iran deal. Clear, concise, easy to read and send to doubters.

    And I want Iran to recognize that the sky is blue.

      I don’t think very many people care a bit what Netanyahu wants. He has made himself irrelevant by his crazed narcissistic behavior.

      The danger he rails against is not real.
      Bibi IS the danger.

    So Why are “Jobsreport” and “126,000 in March” trending on Twitter (when jobs report never trended in past months), and the Iran deal is NO LONGER trending?
