      Thank you, Chips. This is a beautiful peace and deeply true. There will never be another president like Barack Obama. He has made us all better people because of who he is and how he approaches the difficulties, criticisms, injustices and triumphs in his life. As this article says, history will see his greatness and all the petty nitpickers from left and right won’t even merit a footnote.

    Well I guess it’s back to that “Duck” song I created on TOD some time ago:

    I
    Ducks and swans,
    Swans and drakes,
    And they go BOOM!

    II
    Ducks and swans,
    Swans and drakes,
    And they go BOOM!

    III
    Ducks and swans,
    Swans and drakes,
    And they go BOOM!

    (Repeat all three verses another 10X to complete the song)! Enjoy with a nice glass of wine (or whatever booze of the day you desire) 🙂

    Lady Walmart’s people are showing their concern about NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Anthony Weiner went on local TV and complained about what he saw as a betrayal. “Bill,” said Anthony, “How could he not endorse HRC? Bill is ‘mishpucka’ (family in Yiddish.”)
    Bob Shrum sneered and smirked about how unimportant de Blasio is.

    Here are 2 reports about Bill in Iowa. Both are factually correct. You be the judge of which one came from Clintonland.
    1) Bill de Blasio drew the biggest crowd ever seen at the Democrats meeting.
    2) Only 350 people showed up at Dem meeting.

    I think they are sweating Bill forays into the Midwest and the forums he has been holding for progressives from around the country. Sherrod Brown and Gov. Malloy,CT, among others have been attending and there is another one in DC soon.

    • April 29, 2015 at 7:39 pm

      Honestly, Weiner and Shrum? Talk about tired throwbacks.

      And if you’re not on the bandwagon, you must be sick or something, right?

    • April 29, 2015 at 9:45 pm

      Bill de Blasio is presidential material I think…

      Anthony needs to STFU and go back to contemplating what he loves the most what’s below his naval.

      It irritates me to no end that Hillary’s allies dismiss anyone who doesn’t endorse her right away. As if no other candidate was worthy of support.

      I would accept a statement of disappointment. But this tone… the smears… this way of putting down anyone who doesn’t bow to her … This is EXACTLY why so many people were put off in 2008. And are put off right now.

      I’m wondering… does this aggressiveness come from fear ? Maybe , deep down, they’re worried that Hillary’s support could collapse. Maybe they’re worried about a repeat of 2008. The democratic base falling in love again, with someone ELSE than Hillary… Worried that that an O’Malley or a Biden for example could gain traction, with the help of other charismatic leaders like Di Blasio …

      They were traumatized by 2008. They thought it was in the bag. And they were hit by something big. An historic, irresistible wave of enthusiasm not seen since the sixties….

    i love this photo of our president! this wonderful man, with all he has to consider and do, will always stop to enjoy nature. he sees it, he gets it, it’s not a political issue for him–it’s communion.

    If you have cable TV on you may have heard about NYC demonstration happening now.
    The protest is probably considerably bigger than national reports.
    It is centered on the East Side around Union square—14th st.
    I live way downtown, on the West Side and helicopters are here too. meaning that whatever it is, is spreading rapidly.
    I will try to get more accurate info.

      We all know that the “Wolf Blitzers of the media” are the problem…in that interaction between him and Deray was so unnecessary and just plain shitty…he kept pulling certain words out of President Obama’s answer…I hope Deray has had a chance to read what the president actually said!!!!!!!!

    The helicopters are so close and so loud it feels they might land on my balcony. Also, lots of sirens. It is very intimidating.

    Rachel reporting WashPo story that prisoner with Freddie Gray say he injured himself. Severed his own spinal cord.
    Sadly, we know how the rest of the story goes.

      Sadly this is all manufactured. I am sure that prisoner was paid off and sent out of town. When I heard Wapo I know it was feed to them by the police.

  44. April 29, 2015 at 10:00 pm

    Did anyone just hear Rachel Maddow, she had some breaking news where something was leak to the Washington Post and it is said that a prisoner who was in the back of the van with Gray said that Gray was trying to hurt himself on purpose. So this is what the police come up with to get themselves off.

      On Lawrence’s show (which I’m watching for the first time in months), another reporter is already half-debunking that story as “speculation.” It’s all so-called “leaks” or probably false information, as best I can tell.
