    A Proposed Cheat Sheet for Run

    There are many traps for conscientious candidates who run against a sociopathic demogogue who shows no hesitation to damage society or abuse the powers of the presidency to win at any cost. Avoiding them is critical.

    Netanyahu's Win Is A Warning T

    Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has just given a lesson to voters in this country to President Donald Trump, and just as important, to Trump`s critics. And it is one scary lesson.

    In Search of Trump's Tax Retur

    The Congress has now demanded that Trump turn over his tax returns. The law seems clear but the Big Delay is About to Begin.

    Why the 2020 Democratic Candid

    The Democratic nominee for President in 2020 should consider a “New Frontier”-type campaign, not only because it is a proven path to success but because, as President Kennedy said about the fight for racial equality, “It is the right thing to do.”

Wow! Last night was incredible. I must say, I found the entire Presidential Address to Congress to be IMMENSELY entertaining. I mean, what can I say? How often do you get to see a party behave like petulant children, unable to get their way, and therefore throwing fits DURING a presidential speech?

Oh, there was a’hooting and a’hollering.

Oh, there was a’waving of random signs and pieces of paper in the air.

And to top it off? The phrase heard around the world:

“YOU LIE!”

I simple can’t get over it. I was just so sick over this. I am shaken to my core. If the President can’t find respect & safety on the hallowed floor of the House for a joint speech to Congress among elected officials were democracy is always – until last […]

The president was up against it.  The whole centerpiece for his young presidency was on the line and in jeopardy from those on the left and right alike. President Obama took the podium nervous with almost half the crowd wanting him to fail. He more than anyone knew if he […]

It’s time: I need YOU, WE need US

If you once believed in “yes we can”, well, here’s your chance to be part of that “we”. But can isn’t enough anymore. This time, it’s “yes we WILL.”

That was Sick!

President Obama’s speech tonight was just the prescription Health Care Reform needed and made me remember how he inspired me during the election. And Republican Rep. Joe Wilson who screamed, “YOU LIE!” in the midst of the speech was just the overdose the GOP needed to go into a coma. […]

While the rest of the blog world is obsessed with what President Obama WILL SAY, WILL NOT SAY or are presumptuous and insist on what he MUST SAY, I will opt to wait for what the president DOES SAY. My only recommendation is to judge what the president says by […]

Hide the kids and double bolt all the doors

Soon your President will give his speech to your schools, frightening really. The skies will turn dark, the sea will part and lighting bolts will crash to earth, be prepared. He is going to say how important education is for your future generations, how can he say that, how dare […]

Keep Hope Alive and As a Public Plan

Posted by AdLib On Sep - 6 - 2009 25 Comments

Yipe! An article on the AP this morning should cause any supporter of a  public plan and those anticipating that Pres. Obama would come out strong for it in his speech to Congress, some pause and concern: White House: public health care plan is negotiable By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR, Associated Press […]

The current backlash against President Obama, brought on by the attempt to pass health care reform, has obscured the legislative record of the past eight months. I took it upon myself to do a little research into the bills produced by congress and passed by the president since his inauguration, […]

Is Our Children Learning?

Posted by AdLib On Sep - 5 - 2009 17 Comments

“Is our children learning?”  This famous grammatically challenged question posed by ex-President Bush, the child who was left behind, has been granted renewed significance thanks to President Obama’s unprecedented impertinence to think, as President, he can talk to our children. Well, unprecedented if you don’t count Bush and Reagan, FDR, […]

I remember…do YOU?

With so much talk of people ready to renounce their support of President Obama if his speech next Wednesday, September 9th, does not satisfy, I’ve decided to post a piece I wrote upon my return from Denver last August. If your support for Obama is wavering, I hope it reminds […]

I love ya’ back, Mr. President

IMHO the only mistake Obama has made thus far is thinking that Rethugs would play well with others. He HAD to give them a go at it; that is what his campaign is about. Ok, so now he saw how well that went over; he tried to let them do […]

The President goes to school

Asking kids to write a letter about how they can help the President means this: The President = the country = the communities in the country = the people who live in those communities = the families who are made up of those people = the kids who are part […]

Enough!

I was at the speech Obama gave in Denver when he accepted the Dem nom. There was a moment in the speech when he said VERY loudly & FIRMLY: “ENOUGH!”. It stunned the crowd of 91k. We’d never heard him use that tone or that force. I don’t know how […]

Partisanship: Are you on the RIGHT side?

Posted by tyler-durden On Sep - 4 - 2009 17 Comments

The sooner we as Americans realize that we are on the same team, seeking the same goals of LIFE, LIBERTY, AND A LITTLE HAPPINESS, the sooner we can identify the true obstacles and overcome them.

I have to admit from what I see going on at the State Department I was wrong to think Hillary Clinton was the best choice as SOS. OK to let myself off the hook a bit I did support her as the #1 candidate with one caveat. I did say […]
