    thanks for fantastic tweets

    what a difference a pic makes…

    this pic of the President shaking Castro’s hand and the pic of the PBO shaking Putin’s hand….big difference

    I loved every second of FLOTUS’ mic drop! I think she really blew everyone away with her remarks. She was excellent in every way.

    Fun story I found on MLB.com 🙂 🙂

    Excerpt: Lovullo was impressed at the shape Obama is in. “He was doing free weights. He’s got a great routine. He’s in great shape. He was following a piece of paper that somebody wrote up for him. He had a towel, he had a protein drink, he had a weight belt, he was doing a circuit,” said Lovullo. “He wasn’t in one place at one time. He actually sat down and he asked if he could share the weights with me and used the same weights I was doing. I know how heavy they were for me and he didn’t make them look so heavy. He made them look very easy. He’s a strong man who is in good shape.”

      So much for the “pro life” people. I will never understand the dp – so glad we don’t have it. Easy to see why some on the SCOTUS didn’t want to listen to the Pope.

              That is HRC’s strength, isn’t it?
              And it is a big issue today. So it made sense to make her remarks about PP today, Not the ACA, which was 2010 signed sealed and doesn’t need reviving today.

                As I said, I have many grouses and one of them is being politically clueless. How easy it is to say that ACA #obamacare is very popular and serves ‘hard-working’ americans very well and I will make it even more popular and fight against the thugs who want to fight against the hard working americans.

              It’s not the issues per se with me, mostly. It’s SC, 2008. Nothing from her resonates with me, after that. She kept her mouth shut when she was Secretary of State, supported the President, and I do credit her for that part.

              If she’s the nominee, I’ll vote for her, like everyone else. But she’s not MY nominee.

    I have listen to the Glamour event several time already and I loved the part were FLOTUS said that if she had worried about what boy thought she was cute at those girls age she wouldn’t be married to the President of the United States now. Then Charlize gave FLOTUS a high five and FLOTUS pretend to drop the mic. I loved that, our FLOTUS is one outstanding lady.

          I believe that … but I also know Bernie has made this type statement about the President. I was really sharing the Barney Frank quote – never heard that before and loved it.

            “I don’t have any illusion that I’m going to walk in, and I certainly hope it is not the case but if there is a Republican Houseand a Republican Senate,that I’m going to walk in there and say,‘Hey guys, listen. I’d like you to work with me on raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour,’” he said. “It ain’t gonna happen, I have no illusion about that. The only way that I believe that change takes place … is that tens of millions of people are going to have to stand up and be involved in the political process the day after the election.”

            Not as if the bern really has to worry about what ‘he will do’, as he is never going to have the chance anyway. So many of the comments were tearing him apart, not a lot of fan base in there. He has not one single shred of presidential energy in his aura. Not a single one. End of my comments for the duration on this person.

    The Bank of England governor has given a stark warning that climate change poses a huge risk to global stability.

    At a gathering of leading insurers at Lloyd’s of London, Mark Carney pointed out the rapid increase in weather-related catastrophes and the jump in both the physical and financial costs.

    He said the challenges currently posed by climate change “pale in significance compared with what might come”.

    He said this generation had little incentive to avert future problems.

    He avoided spelling out what was causing this apparent change, but said evidence was mounting of man’s role in climate change.

    Insurers are among those with the biggest interest in climate change as the syndicates operating at Lloyd’s, the world’s oldest insurance market, are the most exposed to disasters such as hurricanes and floods.

      Is MSNBC trying to suggest that Biden appeals to RWers in an attempt to alienate him from the Obama coalition and the Dem voters?

        In Lawrence’s case, I think he was just pointing to the editorial. Didn’t seem to say much more about it, and went on to talk about the HRC endorser who had a private meeting with the VP. He’s gone on to show Mrs. Obama at the Apollo!

    This fangirling over Bubba is nauseating…(but the same ones will tell you when it suits them that Bill Clinton is not running for Pres, but he’s a BIG part of the reason why they’re so gaga over HRC in the first place.).
