      Meta, I’m glad PBO is getting the recognition he deserves from the gay community. I hope it makes people appreciate how much a good president can influence culture and why it’s critical that they work for a Democratic successor to this great man. I’m sure our President has gone way beyond caring what anyone else thinks.

        He’s done so much for this country on so many levels for so many people from every walk of life. I expect the awards to continue forever.

        It’s about damned time. A good many of my gay friends and relatives have been awful: PBO didn’t do enough, or fast enough, yada yada. My gay nephew, who is now able to get married in effing Florida – won’t give him credit because he’s black. I love these gay Chicago south siders who let their racism trump their rights.

        Now, I also have many gay friends who cheer PBO all the time. But it has been quite an enlightening experience.

      Good to see that they finally recognize the one who has actually made their lives better instead of those who have only used them (I am looking at you Bill and Hillary). PBO has always gotten shit done for those of all walks of life who have been forgotten, marginalized, and brutalized. He truly sees everyone and respects their humanity.

    Bringing this over for those still picking the sleepy seeds out of their eyes:) Oh! And that cover of the gay mag….awesome!

    http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2015/11/09/Democrats-already-looking-at-possible-VP-candidates-to-run-on-Clinton-ticket/4051447111735/

    Reportedly among the possible running mates: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., former Maryland governor and presidential contender Martin O’Malley, and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro.

    “It would be a balanced and diverse ticket, and it would be two firsts: a female as president and a Latino as vice president,” Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., said of a Clinton-Castro ticket. “I think it’s a better reflection of America than what the other side can offer.”

    Another possible candidate is someone who already has plenty of experience in the post — current Vice President Joe Biden.

    Because the party is attempting to gain seats in Congress and provide a smooth transition from the Obama administration, Democrats may seek a youthful running mate who offers balance in race and gender matters, as well.

    Well, well:)

      Df, I have had many Latino friends say that Julian Castro is the way to go. I think Elizabeth Warren should stay in the Senate and I doubt that VP Biden would accept the number 2 role under Clinton. In any case, it would be wise of her to actually secure the nomination before she picks a running mate.

        Castro. For sure. Warren isn’t even a good fit – she doesn’t appreciate the nuances required of national elections, and the entire MSM narrative would be the competing women (whether it would be true or not).

        ” In any case, it would be wise of her to actually secure the nomination before she picks a running mate.”

        that would be too sensible. In her mind, she has already received the crown. #nomoreclintons #none

    Why Carson’s complaints about scrutiny are wrong

    11/10/15 08:00 AM

    facebook twitter save share group 1

    By Steve Benen

    The more questions arise about the veracity of Ben Carson’s personal background, the more the Republican presidential candidate characterizes himself as a victim of unfair scrutiny. There’s a tactical value to the argument – it’s vastly easier to attack news organizations than defend inconsistencies in his record – that simultaneously panders to far-right activists who remain convinced that President Obama wasn’t vetted in the 2007-2008 race.

    Carson told NBC’s Chris Jansing over the weekend, “I have always said that I expect to be vetted. But being vetted and what is going on with me, ‘You said this 30 years ago, you said this 20 years ago, this didn’t exist, this didn’t.’ You know, I just, I have not seen that with anyone else. Or if you can show me where that’s happened with someone else, I will take that statement back.”

    NBC News’ First Read highlighted some details that Carson may not remember from eight years ago.

    We found a combined 165 New York Times and Washington Post articles that were all (or partially) about Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright between the time Obama first launched his presidential bid (Feb. 2007) and his 2008 victory (Nov. 2008). During that same time period, we found an additional 41 New York Times and Washington Post pieces on Obama and Bill Ayers.

    This doesn’t even touch on the conspiratorial questions about Obama’s birthplace.

    ………………………..

    Carson feels put upon, as if he’s been singled out by reporters overeager to pick on him, largely because he’s not at all accustomed to being scrutinized. He was a celebrated surgeon, whose judgment and credibility was unquestioned.

    Now that he’s seeking the nation’s highest office, Carson suddenly finds media professionals asking him about his claims that appear to untrue – and he’s outraged. How dare journalists press a presidential candidate about dubious stories he may have made up. Don’t they understand? He’s Ben Carson!

      Rikyrah, I wish the media would start applying the same level of scrutiny to empty suit Rubio and nightmare Cruz. They represent the real danger to our future. Ben Carson will never be president.

    oh, so you mean our President has NFTG?

    Ben Carson Was Sued for Malpractice at Least Eight Times

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/11/04/ben-carson-was-sued-for-malpractice-at-least-eight-times.html

    I wonder why the media is ignoring this….

    • 38 jackiegrumbacher
      November 10, 2015 at 9:36 am

      Linda, is it because suing a physician for malpractice is a Republican bugaboo? In Republican bizarro world, doctors are supposed to do whatever they want without patients having legal recourse when something goes wrong. Carson would garner a lot of sympathy if he claimed he was persecuted because of permissive malpractice laws.
