      This is a bombshell truly. Any pretense of neutrality is stripped away. There should be a widespread call for Comey’s immediate resignation.

    GA TODville.

    Just an (innocent 😉 ) observation — looks like PBO took his #MomJeans critics to heart!

    It’s going to be interesting to see how PBO handles this Comey business. I have noticed that when all commentators and we, get upset and want him to act precipitously, he takes his time, and ultimately does something we couldn’t foresee, and something that really hurts. I would imagine Comey is dancing on hot coals right now, and PBO is going to keep him dancing for a while. Then, BOOM, the hammer will be lowered, and Comey will be done….in public life forever. Was it Axelrod or Favreau who said….When he gets quiet WORRY!

      Have you been listening to Randi Rhodes today? She has a take on it that this is an investigation of Trump/Russian hacking. She showed the tape of DT talking about Humadin/Weiner back in July about how could anyone be trusted with secrets married to a slim ball like Weiner. There were several things where Randi is saying the DT camp had information long before and was talking about a bomb shell coming soon and this is it.

        I didn’t know Randi was on the air again. I’m curious, I know she didn’t like Hillary. How is she talking about this election?

          Randi has her own Internet radio show 1pm to 3pm PST or 3pm to 6pm EST. Go to her website Randi Rhodes.com or YouTube and you can listen while it is on live or listen to portions of past shows. You can also buy a podcast to get all the shows.

    How about POTUS and FLOTUS dancing to MJ’s Thriller. They are the best.

    I’ve been wondering for a long time how PBO and his administration would preserve the wealth of information and video at wh.gov, worried that all that great stuff would just go away. Well, now here’s their plan!!

    Will FLOTUS be campaigning for Hillary/Kaine?

  14. October 31, 2016 at 5:29 pm

    Remember last year when POTUS were laughing about the little kid dress as the Pope

      They showed the President with last year’s Pope and Popemobile on CNN or MSNBC earlier. Too cute!

    GE TOD – today (November 1) in my world is the day the country stops ….. for a horse race. It is a holiday in the city of the race – but might as well be a holiday everywhere else – cause no-one does any work. We’re having a luncheon for 9 people …

    Why 9? I’m sure you would ask – cause everything I own – china, flatware/silver, napkins etc – comes in a set of 8. We have 8 dining chairs. Mr 99 be sitting on a stool 🙂

        notice we’re seeing this on Slate, not WaPo– seems the big media players will wait till after the election to pile on DT

          Yes, I was saying the same thing to someone earlier. Or they may not even mention it after the election. Instead they will move on to something else, while having Trump on every Sunday morning show to yap about HRC & Obama.

    I heard the Senator from Vermont is going all in campaigning in NH ME MI WI OH NC IA NE CO AZ NV CA. Great that he is keeping his promise… after helping spreading bad vibe about HRC’s speeches, character, and judgment.

      Oh my! LOL 🙂 I don’t know how we’re going to function after Jan 2017. I honestly don’t know. But I do know that I will savor every last minute of the Obamas being in the current WH.

    Joe Biden DESTROYS Donald Trump In Fiery Speech At Philadelphia Democratic Dinner. Vice President Joe Biden stopped at a Philadelphia restaurant to urge an audience of black leaders and voters to turnout in droves next Tuesday, saying a decisive victory for Hillary Clinton could end claims of a “rigged election” in the city by Donald Trump and skeptics.

    If the election is close, Biden warned, “He’s gonna tell people it was fixed. He’s got just enough folks out there who’ll believe that stuff. We can’t afford that.”

    “Folks it’s not enough we just get out,” Biden told the group. “We’ve gotta win this city by the largest margin we’ve had in a long, long time. In case you haven’t figured it out, you’re the key. The point is, they know what the numbers are.”

    “As Oprah said, you don’t have to love her but you need her,” Biden said, referring to a recent interview the cable channel owner gave. “(Hillary) doesn’t open up that much; it’s not her style. But I know how much she cares.”

    What is this about Donna Brazile giving Hillary a heads up on a debate question? The hits keep coming; don’t know how all of this will end.

      That’s not true. It was a rumor started and spread by the Trump campaign. However, CNN have decided to let Donna go because, according to them, she has ties to the Clinton Campaign and her being a CNN contributor will represent a conflict of interest. Meanwhile, Trump campaign manager Lewandowski will continue to keep his job on CNN. No double standard…moving right along…nothing to see here…

    Been busy with Trick-or-Treaters this evening which was a surprise because there are no children on my part of the subdivision. Some of the kids were a little too old for it, but it has been fun. Almost out of candy so the porch light will go out at 9:00 pm.

      Only had six kids at my house (but they were all little and adorable), so I was kinda telling them to “take a handful” from the candy stash! All six were also totally polite, which sometimes kids forget to be when there’s CANDY!

    so many stories breaking about the homegrown demagogue that you can easily think you already read/heard something that is completely new (in angle of focus and details)
