      Great summary Nerdy!

      Have to agree with #Facepalm re Rubio comment. Good Gawd he’s an idiot!

      Rubio is an absolute lightweight who is completely unqualified to understand, let alone handle, the complexity involved in being president. That he’s being seriously considered and pushed by the Republican establishment is evidence of their contempt for this country. The most dangerous being in the world is a stupid US President.

      NW, I have been saying for years that Marco Rubio is an unprincipled dimwit that’s 2watts brighter than SPalin. He’s a beltway media creation.

      Oh – 50, 500, 700K – however many it is, Rubio, yeah I agree we wouldn’t want to inconvenience anybody.

      Does this guy even hear what comes out of his mouth? I’d put him on the Please-Fly List, as in please fly away. Now.

    O.k dinner time for me! BBL to lurk and catch up.

      What folks like Taegan Goddard don’t understand is that some times you do things because it’s the right thing to do, you are not worrying about approval rating.

      All the tv pundit is concern about is ratings, all the Republican idiots are concern about is starting another war. Sending someone else sons and daughters to die. If they want someone to go to Syria and fight ISIS, why don’t they go? Most Republicans already have weapons, guns, so pack up and go over there. After all G.W. Bush and Dick Cheney is responsible for ISIS.

    Thanks, Nerdy for the post and your excellent summary in”tweets. It was a great speech from the President. I made the mistake of having NBC on and I wanted to throw something at Chuck Toad.

    POTUS was magnificent, rational, reasonable, intelligent, etc. As always. I would love to re-tweet so many of the tweets here, but I’ve got a cadre of sillies foaming at the mouth – and at me – on Twitter right now. I’ll let them vent for the next hour or so and not return there for a while. They are wild. And I have teased them, which I usually don’t do. But I’ve been irritated with the bigoted clap-trap…. It is so marvelous to retreat here for sanity.

    No doubt most of TODville has gone to bed to ready themselves for another Monday, but for west coasters (and Hawaiians — aloha, Susanne! and those whose day already is Monday…):

    Morning everyone! Happy Monday:) China, literally, needs to clean up their act!

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-35026363

    Schools in Beijing are to close and outdoor construction to stop after the Chinese capital issued its first “red alert” over smog levels.
    The red alert is the highest possible, and has not been used in the city before, the state-run Xinhua news agency says.
    Authorities expect more than three consecutive days of severe smog.
    Cars with odd and even number plates will be banned from driving on alternate days.
    Current pollution levels in Beijing are actually lower than last week’s, but the red alert has been placed because of levels expected over the coming days.
    The order will last from 07:00 local time on Tuesday (23:00 GMT on Monday) until 12:00 on Thursday, when a cold front is expected to arrive and clear the smog.
    China’s CCTV news channel reported at the weekend that some parts of Beijing had visibility of only 200m (660 feet).
