    POTUS loved that gift pass he got which he or any of his family could attend any game played at Chicago Stadium. POTUS put that in his coat pocket.

      Donald “Two Corinthians” Trump probably has only gone to Church for his weddings. He’s just pretending to be Christian to get the Rightwing Evangelical vote.

      Didn’t bother them when Franklin Graham and other political right wing tea party Republicans question if President Obama was a christian. What that idiot name Donald J. Trump don’t realize is the Pope listen to what comes out of Donald J. Trump’s mouth, no one has to say one bad word about him he says enough himself.

      The monster who has questioned PBO’s faith is the standard bearer of the party that has questioned PBO’s faith. Even if this Hitler wannabe finally implodes, that he got this close to the nomination and has millions of followers who think he should be POTUS, is an indictment on this country, the MSM and the GOP.

      Love that this is the man who will be carrying the Republican mantel in November. This is exactly what Republicans deserve for all their decades of encouraging and fomenting bigotry. Trump has no respect for anyone.

      But by all means, Berniebots, the real evil in America is Hillary & you either won’t vote if she is the nominee, or you will get Bernie, who Trump and the GOP will obliterate. God.

      Frankly, a lot of folks are burnt out on Trump. They just keep throwing him in our face. Even the local news throws him in my face.

  20. February 18, 2016 at 1:12 pm

    These are 2 very important reads from Smartypants….

    But America is changing. And all of those things are threatened. That is what has conservatives so terrified and angry…to the point that people like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz now lead the fight for the next Republican presidential nomination.

    Over the next 12 months we will witness that fear and anger played out over the presidency and the future of the Supreme Court. Democrats need to be very aware of the stakes – because they are enormously high.

    • February 18, 2016 at 1:41 pm

      Important point…..

      Notice that Hewitt mentioned abortion, guns, marriage and immigration when talking about the activity of the Supreme Court. If you add it voting rights and affirmative action, you pretty much have a summary of the cultural changes that are a threat to the Confederate world view Doug Muder wrote about.

      The essence of the Confederate worldview is that the democratic process cannot legitimately change the established social order, and so all forms of legal and illegal resistance are justified when it tries…
      The Confederate sees a divinely ordained way things are supposed to be, and defends it at all costs. No process, no matter how orderly or democratic, can justify fundamental change.

        From your first link:
        “The basic right wing message we’ve heard for the last six years has been to challenge this President’s legitimacy.”

        Yep. They’ve never gotten over the fact that a Black man was elected to the office of the Presidency. For some reason, these bigots believe that their racist worldview is shared by a majority of Americans. I believe the shock of Obama’s presidency will haunt them for the rest of their lives. LOL.

    Love this tweet! Gave me a big reason to smile during all the media/Trump brouhaha, which is really frosting me! Plus, gave me a little time-out from asking the infamous Cardinal Dolan of New York (who’s busy signing a book on St. Patrick’s Cathedral at present, even though the Pope told the cardinals and bishops to be like “shepherds living with the smell of the sheep”) when he’ll show some moral leadership and speak out on behalf of the Pope and against “fortunate son” Trump. And asking the NYT when they’ll grab a statement from Cardinal Dolan on it. So, yeah, this reason to smile was timely.

    P.S. Good Afternoon, TODville!

      Even if it were precedent, I wouldn’t blame POTUS for skipping that man’s funeral. Scalia was an awful Judge and his decisions were very damaging to minorities.

      If the countries won’t allow the abortions then the countries should support these children, and not in state run orphanages. They should pay the mothers/parents a monthly amount plus free medical and day care.

    “AFGHANISTAN Good news! I posted this in January, but re-posting after just hearing that Afghanistan’s first all women’s university is progressing forward. Let’s not forget this inspiring initiative that will make a huge difference.

    First lady Rula Ghani, announced in January that an all women’s university will be established in Kabul in the near future! A special thanks to Turkey for their major role in helping the all-women’s university get started. ….”

    Good afternoon TOD!

    I need a little link help from my fellow TODers on behalf of a friend who loves PBO, but does not pay attention to politics.

    First, she is interested in mentoring teenage girls and I was wondering if any of you know of a similar organization to My Brother’s Keeper for women and girls. My friend is a corporate executive, a successful yoga teacher and she has raised two boys that are now doing well in college. She would make a wonderful mentor. If any of you who are active in mentoring know of any organizations I can steer her to, let me know.

    Second, she got into a discussion with a friend’s high school age kids the other day, where she ended up having to defend PBO against these boys’ opinions that he was a “terrible president”, spouting falsehoods like, “the country is in all this debt” “Obamacare!” etc, etc. Although my friend loves PBO and tried to explain the obstruction he faced and school these boys on the fact that there is still racism (they were surprised!), etc. I had to correct her that they were wrong re the debt, and that PBO had just said in his press conference how the news media was not doing their job informing people about this issue among many. I want to send her a link to a current list of PBO’s accomplishments. I have a couple of articles saved, but they are not recent and PBO continues to get so much done, that it’s hard to keep up. Could some of you give me links to recent lists of PBO’s many accomplishments?

    Thanks TOD!
