      Dems that don’t listen to Bernie overwhelmingly think we’re in a good place, and getting better.

          If we had party leadership that demanded that down ticket candidates tout this great record. We simply cannot make the same mistake again. Faced with the rabid ravings of GOP, we should roar right back about the greatest economy we’ve seen since – wait for it – the Clinton economy of the 90’s.

          Why is this so hard, Dudette? We have an opposition party that stokes their minions to follow lies and destruction and we can’t get our side to roar right back with what we’ve accomplished?

      I must share: My physical therapist has three children under 10. They are a documentary-watching, library-going, museum-going family. She said her two older kids have posters and charts, etc. all over their rooms about Kelly’s mission and other space missions, when other kids have music or sports posters. They were obsessed with every step of this mission coming home. How cool is that?

    Hi Everyone

    So cool about the jobs report.

    I will be asking for your help in the weeks to come to make sure the SCOTUS issue stays on the radar. It was so inspiring to hear Stephanie Pelosi speak to us in SF yesterday. There are several groups working together. – OFA, MoveOn, Get $$ out of Politics. Women’s Rights Groups, Voting Rights. If you are not sure where you can help, post a note here and we can all help you find something.

    For Today my ask is small – please retweet these 2 tweets. Having the retweet # hit double digits is a big thrill for us :-> This blog has the power to make a real difference.

      Was about to post this. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank Goodness, I refreshed. Great Post, HF. We must add another 10%+ points for Gallup & many Pollsers skew PBO’s number, esp., Favorable numbers.

      I figure about the time people have to vote they will decide maybe PBO was not so bad considering who the next choices are. Too little, too late! Aren’t you glad you were on the correct side of history? I was about to say the right side, but caught myself in time. LOL

    Hey, sweet Dudette. I am a tab confused. Please help me out, will you? Thanks in advance.
    @StationCDRKelly said on NASA TV that he left Earth for Space at 50, turned 51 in Space and returned back to Earth at 52. I know I remembered that he just celebrated his 52nd Birthday some weeks ago. I get that. What puzzles me is this; the 340 days in Space…..I know that a year takes 365/366 days. So please help me. Educate me, please.

    Detail of the hands of U.S. President Barack Obama as he speaks about the economy, after meeting with his economic team in the Roosevelt Room at the White House, March 4, 2016 in Washington, DC.

      I’ve read that this is not uncommon – the party out of power in the WH roars with turnout during the primaries. I am hoping, of course, that this is not an indicator for the GE. But of course, you are correct: we still need to vote.

      Especially in the states with voter restrictions – now would be the time to find out if your registration is up to date. A good reason to vote in the primary.
