President Obama wiped away tears as he spoke of the shootings, in Newtown, Connecticut.
When President Obama stopped in at the Big Apple Pizza in Ft. Pierce, Florida, he was greeted with a hug and lifted up in the air by the owner, Scott Van Duzer. Because of what Duzer did, he is getting a lot of flack from the Republican crazies, who need to get a life, and stop acting like the pathetic assholes that they are.
When I first heard that Romney picked Paul Ryan to be his running mate, this had the Koch Brothers all over it. In an well written Op-Ed by Danny Weil of Truthout, spells out what the Koch Brothers are up to. Read it at Truthout. The link is below the pic.
Derek Trucks makes some interesting points on music, and President Obama.
Ed Henry of Fox News clashes with the President, at a White House press conference. He’s another nit wit with Fox News that shows no respect for Obama. Pathetic. By the way, he’s acting like the victim as was complaining about it with Megyn Kelley of Fox News. Acting like a real cry baby. Read more in the Huffington Post.
Watch the man being interviewed by a Fox News reporter, as he gives him a good old fashion scolding. This is the interview that Fox News Refused to air.
John Boehner has no respect for the president, after the ‘tan man’ got his in forcing the president to give his speech the next night. This has never happened before, where Congress refused to let the president speak before both the House and the Senate. The Republicans don’t give a damn about the middle class and the poor.
The video of Ed Schultz can be seen via the link below.
President Obama wants to address the nation next Wednesday night (Sept. 7), but John Boehner wants Obama to wait until the following night. Boehner’s reason or excuse or whatever shit he’s throwing, is that House returns and starts it session on the 7th, and said it will be a busy day, with light night voting thrown.
What the hell has the House done? Nothing but crying about the taxes the rich shouldn’t pay, and of course there’s been nothing done about the job situation.
Do your job Boehner, along with the rest of you so-called politicians. We the tax payer pay you to do the job. If you clowns was working a different job, you’d all be fired. ASAP
Lets see what the right wing trolls have to say about this.

Rep Michele Bachmann said that if President Obama invoked the 14th Amendment, it would be grounds for impeachment. Sorry Bachmann, it doesn’t work that way, as it is in the Constitution, and he has every right to invoke it. You and your Tea Party say that you’s know all about the Constitution, and you can’t even understand what a simple amendment is about.
President Obama walked out of the Debt Ceiling meeting, as Eric Cantor was being very rude. It was reported that Cantor interrupted Obama three times, while the President was wrapping things up. Canto claims that Obama stormed out, but Nancy Pelosi says that is not true, and was really pissed off on how Cantor was acting. By the way, Cantor has already walked out twice on Obama. Cantor should grow up, act like an adult, or get the hell out of Washington.

President Obama wants to give Russia our missile defense secrets because he believes that we can buy their friendship and cooperation with this taxpayer-funded gift. But giving military secrets and technologies to a rival or competitor like Russia is just plain dumb.
Sarah Palin calls President Obama and Nancy Pelosi liars, and says the Republicans are trying to “save” Medicare while the Democrats are killing it. Ms. Palin called the President a liar. This woman, who has told the truth less often than she tells lies, this person who lies about the weather in her own book, this serial liar, has called the President a liar on national TV.

John McCain told Mike Wallace of Fox News fame, that Palin can beat Obama in ’12. Of course Grandpa McCain went to say that she has been mercilessly and relentlessly attacked. She also inspires great passion. Yeah right. (my emphasis)
Jon Stewart on the Daily Show calls out on Mike Huckabee, for embracing Ted Nugent. Huckabee is supposed to be a lover of Christ, and yet he falls all over a guy like Nugent, who is simply a whack job.
House Republican Paul Ryan defends his budget blueprint, medicare overhaul.
In a speech before the Economic Club of Chicago, the Wisconsin Republican maintained, “We cannot avert a debt crisis unless we directly address the rising cost of health.”
Ryan said his plan to overhaul Medicare would “give power to deny business to inefficient providers. [Democrats] plan is to give government the power to deny care to seniors.”
After the feigned outrage over “Cop Killer” Common, Ted Nugent appeared on Mike Huckabee’s show, and Nugent was all proud and puffing up his ego, by telling the audience, how proud he is of the warriors that killed bin Laden. He also says he hangs out with them, and watches them train. I don’t think so. Then he went on about the government should be doing a better job securing out borders.
Bill Maher has had enough of the right wing false and negativity talk on his show, and he wants to put a stop to it. David Frum was putting his usual Republican spin on it, but Maher and Michael Eric Dyson would have none of it.
With Eliot Spitzer not taking any bullshit from John Yoo, formerly with the Bush administration, with his nonsense on how Obama went about wrong on nailing Bin Laden, and saying Bush was the one who knew how to fight terrorism, when in fact, Bush called off the CIA operation in 2005.
Its good to see that Maher and Spitzer can see right through these guys.
In a piece in The Raw Story, David Koch says Obama is a “Hardcore Socialist” and also stated that he is scary. He made these and other remarks to New York Magazine. He also said that Obama deserved no credit for the killing of bin Laden. Just another fool making the I’m not giving Obama credit for anything bullshit tour.
Glenn Beck should be banished from the air waves for good. Both radio and TV. This man has no respect for President Obama.

The House Republicans are acting like spoiled school children, as they refuse to pass a resolution to honor the military, and the Navy Seals. They should get over it that Osama bin Laden was caught and killed under Obama’s watch, and not George Bush. I just have to wonder what the hell goes through their minds.
Shepherd Smith on Fox News wanted to know if it was Illegal to go after Osama bin Laden. If Bush was still president, Fox News would be high fiveing for till the next decade.
The Republicans want us to believe that it is President Obama’s fault for the economy to go in the tank. But with the recent take down of Osama bin Laden, they want to give the credit to George W. Bush. Back in 2005, Bush gave up on going after bin Laden. Of course he won the election in 2004, so why did he give a crap if they found him or not.
Crooks and Liars has good take on what the Bush administration was doing about it, or not doing about it. In 2008, Obama made the promise that he would hunt him down, and he kept his promise. A president with a spine.
With some of the top Republicans giving their take, and congratulations on the killing of bin Laden, only one mentioned President Barack Obama by name. That was Tim Pawlenty. I congratulate for that. The rest; Romney, Bachmann, Santorum, and others, gave thanks for killing bin Laden, but no mention of the president. To think if it was a Republican in the White House, they’d be heaping praise on the president. Then we have Fox news saying, that the photos of bin laden are fake. Again, Obama can get no respect from these degenerate assholes.
Michael Tomasky a brilliant writer for the Guardian, has made his final video, as he is leaving the paper. The Guardian is losing a respected man, and I love his writing, and also the video blogs that he made. You can find his writings and videos, in the ‘Comment is Free’ section of the Guardian.
At the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, Donald Trump told Fox and Friends that the jokes that President Obama and comedian Seth Meyers, were “inappropriate in certain respects.”
So Trump can harp about Obama’s birth certificate, then says he wants to see his transcripts and records concerning Barack’s time at Columbia and Harvard, and he Trump thinks that fine. But when the shoe is on the other foot, he goes to Fox News and cries foul. Just a typical Republican, who can dish it out, but can’t take it.
Well Donald, Payback is a Bitch!

Media Matters reports that Fox News has promoted the ‘birther myth’ in 52 segments. Never once did they come out and say that it was all bunk. My emphasis.

Here’s a great perspective on why Obama shouldn’t have shown his birth certificate.
Orly Taitz, the queen of birther, is at it again, saying she has proof that Obama only went to Columbia University for only one year, which is a lie. She also wants to know how he got into Harvard.
What’s next with her, Donald Trump and the other loose cannons; proof that he has a driver’s license, lived in Chicago? It’s totally insane with these people.

Here’s the story in the Boston globe concerning Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate, and it has a picture of it.

The White House has announced that they will release President Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate today.
What will the Tea Party and the ‘birther nuts’ do now? I can imagine Fox News will have asinine things to say about it.
Andrew Breitbart keeps going around in circles and denials, while on Martin Bashir on MSNBC. Its 13 plus minutes, of Breitbart beating around the bush, and his so-called journalistic talents suck.

Click on the link to see the picture that a Tea Partier sent out in an e-mail. It is disgusting.
When the Republicans like to call out on the Democrats, they seem to think its an okay thing to do. But when the shoe is on the other foot, they cry foul, and thinks its disrespectful. They’ve been acting like that for years, and still don’t get it.
Case in point, watching the video, Joe Scarborough makes his point uninterrupted. Towards the end, Mika Brzezinski is trying to give her opinion, all good old Republican Joe kept doing was talking over her, and kept trying to interrupt her. This seems to go on all the time.
