This and That

The Oval: President Obama celebrated working people on this Labor Day, but also blitzed Mitt Romney’s economic plan with football metaphors.

“There’s a flag on the play,” Obama told crowd of auto workers in Toledo, Ohio, at one point.

Riffing on Romney’s weekend claim that the economy needs “a new coach” in the White House, Obama said that “the problem is that everybody’s already seen his economic playbook … we know what’s in it.”

The “first down” is tax cuts for the wealthy that will lead to tax hikes for the middle class, Obama said. “Second down” is an audible” ending financial and environmental regulations. Romney’s “third down” is a “Hail Mary” of cuts that would “end Medicare as we know it.”

Obama’s suggestion for the fourth down of the Romney plan: “Punt it away! … It won’t work! It won’t win the game!

“You don’t need that coach,” he said of Romney. “That’s a losing season!”

This and That

Msg from The Obama Diary: Genuine bloggers who create their own posts in support of PBO are welcome to use anything from TOD – rebloggers, who only copy others in an attempt to up their traffic, are not. eg the reblogger who treats women like this – explicit – while copying TOD posts on women’s rights. He belongs in the GOP.

You’ll be bored silly hearing me say this …. but a gazillion apologies for not replying yet to all your emails, things have been a bit bonkers busy, so I just haven’t had the time.

Just to make one thing clear, though: the only fundraiser this little blog supports and endorses – and will ever support and endorse from now on – is Obama/Biden 2012, absolutely no other, personal or otherwise. I’ll reply to you all asap, but I just wanted to make that 100% clear.

You can donate through one of the fundraisers set up by the highly lovely people who inhabit this blog:

Marlz * Meta * Pamela *prettyfoot58 * proudmemberofglobalzero * Rita * Theo67 * The Obama Diary

Please do what you can, especially in light of today’s NYT story:

Americans for Prosperity, the Tea Party organization backed by the Koch brothers, is set to begin a $25 million advertising assault aimed at President Obama, its largest effort to date….
