Political “tire swingers” in W.H. Press Corps will never forgive Obama for not hangin’ out with them.
SOTU “enhanced”! Update (Guest List! Courtesy of The Obama Diary!) Sergeant Sheena Adams (Vista, CA), Team Advisor & Lead Instructor, Female Engagement Team Alan Aleman (Las Vegas, NV), DREAM Student Jack Andraka (Crownsville, MD), Winner of the 2012 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair Susan Bumgarner (Norman, OK), Early Childhood Educator Deb Carey (New Glarus, [...]
There are liberals: Personally, I think all presidents have too much power over life and death in this American Empire. But I really don’t trust presidents who create new powers to torture, kidnap and kill civilians with no due process and no accountability out of whole cloth. Bush did all that. As far as we [...]
Nothing to say except for a lot of his first term his liberal agenda items got attention. The fact that he ran out a mostly liberal speech means that he probably sees less to compromise on in general and a mandate to get things done. I feel it will be uglier with house Republicans who [...]
You know, people stood in line for a long time to vote for President Obama. That means an extended black family will be in the White House for the next 4 years. A far cry from US founding father Thomas Jefferson who as MHP smartly points out is featured in the background of Michelle Obama’s [...]
Ars Technica has overview of Obama team’s superior back office platform: One of the biggest problems in the last campaign was that you had all these people who are out in the field who are volunteering who start building their own versions of these rogue tools to do the same thing over and over again,” [...]

The Economist (a right leaning to right wing magazine) cites Obama’s foreign policy, “Obamacare” and the Auto Rescue as reasons to vote for Obama and as for Romney: As a result, this election offers American voters an unedifying choice. Many of The Economist’s readers, especially those who run businesses in America, may well conclude that [...]
It’s good to see a funded and responsive FEMA led by civil servants who are disaster recovery experts.
He knows he’s just lying about what he’s offering. He knows a lot of people know he’s bullsh*tting, but if he can get enough people to buy what he’s selling, he makes his numbers for the election and it’ll be all good! Andrew Sullivan’s live blogs are fun reads, especially when he wigs out, but this [...]
In calling Stacey Dash bullshit as opposed to calling her views bullshit, people are engaging in misogyny (directly by berating her on twitter) and inward hatred of black autonomy. Not acknowledging that a black person can come to a different point of view, cultural orientation and political ethic than the majority of black folks is part and [...]
