      Now that intern experience reflects PBO’s measure of his leadership skills and his ability to inspire these young future leaders! He is the example of what a role model should look like.

    Hillary Clinton’s family foundation will no longer accept foreign and corporate donations if she is elected president, and will bring an end to its annual Clinton Global Initiative meeting regardless of the outcome of the November election.

    Former President Bill Clinton made the announcement at an afternoon meeting with foundation staff members, according to participants who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity ahead of the formal announcement.

        Preach meta – he’s become the star tonight for saying he “may have been wrong” about something. Dear heavens, he reads a speech like a wooden spoon & is the darling of the media – while he encourages his supporters to declare all out war on that media.

            The world is with you meta. I listened to gov John Bel Edwards on Rachel tonight. He was so sane and honest and supporting his people and working to help them & thankful of all the Fed support – it was like a different world to the one created by Jindal & Trump. Always remember who cares about people & it isn’t any republicans.

            • August 18, 2016 at 10:18 pm

              Thanks so much for reminding us that we need to focus on the things that make a real difference, that matter to us. It’s vital to our sanity.

                NCLB has a tweet down below related to the interview on Rachel. It was so good – Rachel started with a “both sides” – the media criticising PBO for not being in Louisiana – Edwards swatted the media for having 100% wrong priorities.

              Ignore the tweet this person responded to — it’s from Chris Cilizza one of the worst “pundits” out there — really can’t stand him, but this confirms what I heard John Bel Edwards say on the radio today.

                Went to Clilzza’s twitter – bad move – so pro Trump – he really can’t have a functioning brain.

                As for the article – what a blatant racist hit piece – sorry I went there. I heard Edwards on Rachel – he was superb

                I heard that Trump is planning a visit to LA now. Probably to say he cares and was there before Obama or Clinton. Like Gov Edwards says he is going to get a photo op. Wish the press would get it right.

    While on the one hand I get nauseous every time I see a Trump sign in someone’s yard or on their vehicle, on the other I am glad to see the labels. I know exactly what I am dealing with from the get-go and I am not intimidated. This sign and the deceased person and ideas it represents are merely the pus-filled boil that will be lanced come November.

      Know what you mean.

      Saw a Trump bumper sticker the other day and thought to myself, “Why do you need to advertise you’re an a**hole and will cut off the next person on the road?”

      Of course it was on one of those incredibly noisy pick up trucks that Detroit seems to be churning out in record numbers. I long for the days when not every. single. pick up. truck on the road was decibels over what doesn’t shatter your eardrums.

    American women are kicking ass in this Olympics just like they did in London (brought home 60% of the total hardware in 2012). Boxing, wrestling, water polo (the goalee is an A-A woman), swimming, rowing, track and field, gymnastics and more. 292 women came to play and to win. Hope this will show other nations that you cannot leave half of your people off the playing fields of life. Beyond sports parity, however, girls and women do/can/will get the job done. I think that the 21st century is on the brink of being the Century of the Woman world-wide. I love my guys, but there have been major F ups all over the world (especially here) in the almost first 2 decades of the century, and it is time for the women to take over and get this mess straightened out.
    I often think of the Kurdish women who have taken up arms to protect their people and to fight for their futures. Those recent photos of the liberated women who tore off and burned the concealing robes that had been foisted upon them and of the female soldier who carried the child in one arm and an automatic rifle over the other. I am overwhelmed by what all of this represents.

      He was so impressive in explaining the problems and the solutions. The comparison to Jindal cannot be defined, they are so far apart in a crisis. All the republicans ever want to do is yell about the issues – never a solution – Jindal and Trump have much in common

      GM JER.

      Will post this tomorrow when more people in TODville are awake, but here’s the backstory on the statues:

      • August 19, 2016 at 7:28 am

        The artist says that he had planned to vote for trump but now will vote libertarian. He plans to make a nude statue of Hillary. I think k that would be a mistake

          GM PF58.

          Thanks for responding — admit I was ready for bed when I posted this last night, and didn’t read the final paragraphs, which you thankfully did:

          “And get this: He’s planning to create a naked Hillary Clinton, too.

          [The artist] Ginger initially planned to vote for Trump, but now he’s backing Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party candidate.”

          This is wrong in so many ways.

          INDECLINE made their point with these DJT statues as a parody of “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” but that group will show their vile libertarian misogyny if they do the same with a naked HRC statue.

          Man, libertarians are one of the primary causes of the rise of the DJT GOP.

      Chelsea runs the foundation. I think Clinton plans to completely separate herself from the foundation, including removing her name. I read this at least 6 months ago. I don’t know the details but I think she will do whatever she needs to do make it clear she has nothing to do with the foundation.

      GM GCL.

      I think the Clinton Global Initiative is WJC’s legacy to the world, and was established to continue well beyond his lifetime. Like the Hoover Institute or the Woodrow Wilson foundation, think tanks/educational endowments that employee political types when the other party is in power and doing all the hiring.

    Four views of Ryan Lochte


    “Maybe he’s just a lunk, or a doofus, or a Faulknerian idiot man-child, or the real-world analogue of Moose from Archie. There are all sorts of unflattering descriptors that might apply to Ryan Lochte.”

    Washington Post:

    “There is a special category of obnoxious American ‘bro’ that Lochte represents, in his T-shirt and jeans and expensive suede footwear, which he showed off on Instagram that night at the party along with the price tag. ‘We’re 6k deep here,’ he captioned it. Is there anything worse, in any country, than a bunch of entitled young drunks who break the furniture and pee on a wall?”

    San Francisco Chronicle:

    “It doesn’t matter what else Lochte has done in his Olympic career. This cemented his legacy: most embarrassing Olympic athlete.”

    New York Post:

    “He cried wolf and was called on it, and that will be his burden to bear for a good long while – but not his alone. The Ugly American is alive and well in 2016 thanks to this dope.”


    Talk about drowning in your own pee pool.
