      If there were really such a thing as “justice” the bush administration would be in prison, the cop who killed Mike Brown would also be in prison, and Boehner and his bretheren would NOT be in their lofty positions. ISIS would not have a hold on any […]

President Obama will make his 2015 State of the Union speech tonight at 6:00pm PST and PlanetPOV will be hosting a Live Chat that will run simultaneously with his speech and the (now) three Republican rebuttals (known in some circles now as The Whiners Circle).

It’s the first day of the GOP controlled Congress and the entire Republican Party is showing off who’s in charge around this country. That is, who’s in charge of bribery, racism and corruption.

President George W Bush visits CIA Headquarters, March 20, 2001.

What we know confidently now is that torture did take place under the Bush Administration by the CIA, that it didn’t work or help keep Americans safe, that it permanently undermined our nation’s moral authority in the world and that there is absolutely no regret or apology from those who oversaw and committed it.

congress poll 2014

Republicans have every right to claim that the election was a statement of support for them and a rejection of Obama…the Supreme Court has already ruled that lying is protected under the 1st Amendment and all that Republicans are trying to do is strengthen the 1st Amendment.

Sen. Ted Cruz and the majority of Republican men in Congress explained that it was their sole responsibility to take the trash out in their house and that their wives’ unilateral action in taking it out makes it impossible for the trash to be taken out in the future.

What do you do now that Republicans won a wave election? Just what Republicans did when Democrats won wave elections in 2008 and 2012. Become intransigent and refuse to work with them because America made clear they want a President who’ll block Republicans and represent their values. Easy peasy!

I knew things were going to go badly in NY. I am no spring chicken, and the vast majority of voters were older than me (we’re trending into the 60-90 year old range).

Dems loser

The halo effect. Tip O’Neill said that all politics are local. Not last night. All politics were national. 6 years of negativity about the President paid off. Every election was a test of Obama’s popularity.

Dumb Dumber GOP

Too many Americans have become “dumb” voters, they vote on little more than emotion. They feel upset at DC so they knee jerk vote for the party that doesn’t control the White House…even though it is the party they’re voting for that has caused the problems that led to their being upset.

Cowardly Boehner - PPOV

As part of their attempt to soften their image with voters just ahead of of next week’s election, top names from the GOP have donned their Halloween costumes and are offering a trick…or treat…for America.

Mitch McConnell

The Republican tension between satisfying the base and appealing to the entire electorate will be made significantly worse if the party controls both houses of Congress. The Republicans will get almost none of the practical things they want, and their political headaches will be multiplied.

For those who believe in American Exceptionalism and in America as being the world’s greatest democracy, how can that be the case when so many other countries have greater democratic participation than America?

Obama in front of Huge Flag

I spend a lot of time at whack-a-troll at but one does get a little weary of all the Barack Obama naysayers..so every now and then I like to remind myself (and others) of why I continue to support him.
