    Good Morning TOD Family.

    Popping in from my semi-lurking to wish everyone a happy and beautiful Friday. Still going through a myriad of health issues. Overwhelmingly good news, but had to go through so many tests to get to those results. Throw in an allergy (attack which I’ve never had before) and a few other routine tests that I needed, well it’s been a long process and it’s still not over. I thank God (and President Obama) that I have health insurance.

    I thought I understood before, but going through this challenge, it has REALLY hit me even harder when thinking about people who don’t have health insurance and why they don’t go to the doctor. The costs are outrageous. I know I’m preaching to the choir, but we must not allow any attempts to dismantle the ACA. If anything, it should be tweaked to be even better for the people. Thanks for listening to my rant and thanks for sending thoughts and prayers my way.

    Lurve the photos Nerdy!

    Patrick Murphy and Corrine Brown (representatives) arrived with PBO.
    PBO is working the crowd at the airport (was not originally scripted).

      He is spending quite a bit of time with the very diverse crowd. All of the newscasters use the word “bound” to describe how our pBO comes down the stairs of AF1

    Jon Favs has a piece over at Daily Beast about the fact that voting for Hill now , is even more important than voting for PBO was in ’08. Haven’t read it yet, but can someone bring it over? On my phone , so I have no idea how to do that myself:) beautiful Friday to all!

      A former Obama ’08 speechwriter explains how and why Secretary Clinton is a lot more compelling than you might think.

      I didn’t start off as her biggest fan either. During the 2008 campaign, I wrote plenty of less-than-complimentary words about Hillary Clinton in my role as Barack Obama’s speechwriter.
      Then, a few weeks after the election, I had a well-documented run-in with a piece of cardboard that bore a striking resemblance to the incoming Secretary of State.

      It was one of the stupider, more disrespectful mistakes I’ve made, and one that could have cost me a job if Hillary hadn’t accepted my apology, which she did with grace and humor. As a result, I had the chance to serve in the Obama Administration with someone who was far different than the caricature I had helped perpetuate.

      The most famous woman in the world would walk through the White House with no entourage, casually chatting up junior staffers along the way. She was by far the most prepared, impressive person at every Cabinet meeting. She worked harder and logged more miles than anyone in the administration, including the president… Most of all—and you hear this all the time from people who’ve worked for her—Hillary Clinton is uncommonly warm and thoughtful. She surprises with birthday cakes. She calls when a grandparent passes away. She once rearranged her entire campaign schedule so a staffer could attend her daughter’s preschool graduation. Her husband charms by talking to you; Hillary does it by listening to you—not in a head-nodding, politician way; in a real person way.

    Here’s a comment I posted on Facebook…….story about Lindsey saying his party is bats— crazy. I posted this comment just before 11:00. So far, it’s had 164 likes!!!!!

    Lala McKinney Smith And you helped in that, Lindsey. You and many others could have pulled in the reigns of the crazies long time ago but you didn’t. You chose to keep using the crazies to get votes and win elections. Gave them too much power. Now they are in total control. YOU BUILT THIS!!!

    Had < 5min but was able to listen to @HillaryClinton during her Atlanta campaign speech (h/t JER!!) – she's doing well and both emulating and respecting President Obama. If she stays on that platform she will be President.

  21. February 26, 2016 at 1:12 pm

    bb much later, hopefully … take care everyone & Chips, I’ve had a smile on my face all morning thinking of “Chubs” with his family and out in the pasture herding sheep!!!! You really DID GOOD!!!!

      If that photo of Christie and Trump isn’t indicative of the clowns in the Republican party, I don’t know what is. Kinda don’t want lunch, now.

      That way Christie can once again avoid staying in NJ, doing his job. Not that the people in NJ probably want him there, either. Ugh.

    The stupidest thing that trump wants to do is abolish the EPA. He says bc we are 19 trillion in debt.
    Yet, this only saves 8 billion per year?
    So why would he want to get rid of the EPA?
    Bc big companies like his, would not get fined for breaking the clean air/water acts.
    Nobody to watch them…

    This is the lunacy & ineptitude of MSM CW displayed for all to see…. they are all a bunch of lemmings & this shows they all have the exact same mindset. No matter the issue they go to their twitter feed decide which way the wind is blowing and then give us “analysis” when popping up on TV

    I’m kinda lost for words….I can’t wait til Nov elections. BTW all the talk of a brokered convention (the genius AKA Reince Priebus scheduled it during the NBA finals and would have to move the whole thing if Cleveland wins the Eastern Conference)
