Saw the clip and loved the new condition that will be covered under pre-existing conditions by Obamacare. Awesome!
Check out my comment and links I left on the last thread.
Have a great evening.
AP – wonderful picture comparison. Great links
Monday’s debate will be interesting. After Obama smacked down Romney on Libya in the last debate, I’m wondering if he’ll go there. I’m guessing Romney will try to make it about economics; trade policies, especially with China. But Romney doesn’t have a good story there as he has investments in China, and out on the stump he has said that the President hasn’t signed one trade agreement, Obama will come back and say that is correct: he’s signed three.
My cousin Tina passed away on Friday, she was 67 and had struggled through a very long battle with ovarian cancer. My aunt and uncle are still alive (92 and 95) in very poor health. I wasn’t close with my cousin Tina but stayed in touch, mostly via Facebook over these last few years. Her passing has effected me more than i had thought it would, I can’t begin to imagine how dark and lonely life must feel for her parents right now.
Brian, sorry to hear about your cousin Tina. Ovarian cancer survival rates are pretty low.
Brian, so sorry for the loss of your cousin. We both know that losing a loyal dog friend is just as or even more painful. Hang in there.
Former Senator George McGovern, Who Lost 1972 Presidential Bid, Dies at 90
George McGovern, the United States senator who won the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 1972 as an opponent of the war in Vietnam and a champion of liberal causes, and who was then trounced by President Richard M. Nixon in the general election, died Sunday in Sioux Falls, S.D. He was 90.
His death was announced by his family in a statement. He had been moved to hospice care in recent days after being treated for several health problems in the last year.
To the liberal Democratic faithful, Mr. McGovern remained a standard-bearer well into his old age, writing and lecturing even as his name was routinely invoked by conservatives as synonymous with what they considered the failures of liberal politics.
He never retreated from those ideals, insisting on a strong, “progressive” federal government to protect the vulnerable and expand economic opportunity while asserting that history would prove him correct in his opposing not only what he called “the tragically mistaken American war in Vietnam” but also the American invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.
George McGovern got my vote in 1972 and he gets my vote now. Great, great man.
The local ABC affiliate here is running a 15 second spot that says this is a political ad break, while showing scenic videos of Colorado. What a relief!
Brian: so sorry to hear of your cousin’s passing. And how hard for her folks to have outlived their daughter. Know you’ll already do this, but, having lived with a few seniors: send a series of cards to your aunt and uncle. Old folks like personal mail. None of us get enough of it these days!
RE McGovern: what a truly good and great man.
Sorry to hear of your loss. I’ll say a pray for her. Take care and …
Colorado comes up with some great ideas!!
Bob Dole on George McGovern:
Have a good time tonight. I’m going to pass and go to my chorus tonight. The debates make me too mad and stressed. If the election depends on the outcome of 3 debates, then the whole thing sucks.
I would love to hear your angelic voice. Alas, I will be listening to Joe Buck and Tim McCarver call the Giants/Cardinals game.
D- I would love to hear my angelic voice too, but think it’s a losing hope. Go Giants!
Bev, Giants won. Big.
Judging by the talking heads the President won last night’s debate. Judging by the excuses from Romney surrogates, they must believe that Romney lost.
Romney & Ryan (and Kid Rock) had a rally last night at Red Rocks Amphitheater. It was a packed house, larger than any Romney rally in Colorado. They handed out 25,000 tickets even though the venue only holds 10,000.
The irony here, which must’ve been lost on Romney, Ryan and the attendees, is that Red Rocks was built using the CCC, the WPA, and federal funds for materials, authorized by FDR. The site was originally purchased by the city of Denver, authorized by Mayor Ben Stapleton, a Democrat. Red Rocks is owned and operated by the city of Denver.
Terrific debate last night. Showed that we are better off with the calmer, smarter guy at the helm. As he has been since 2009.
Obama made clear that he thinks longterm in strategy, vs. cheap political stunts and short-term results and gratification. The last two as you might have from “vulture capitalism.”
I’m sure that irony is not on the Rep platform this year. Could it be also be ironic that it was a large crowd because Kid Rock was there?
Romnesia and Colin Powellmentum.
The Prez is in Richmond today and coming back to Northern Virginia (Prince William County) in a few.
Ralph Stanley did a series of appearances yesterday for Eric Cantor’s Congressional opponent, Wayne Powell.
Stanley called it his “O Cantor Where Art Thou” gig.
Ralph Stanley is supporting Wayne Powell? This is huge. It’s like Andy Griffith supporting Obama in 2008.
He is indeed. Dr. Stanley had a frenetic day yesterday, from breakfast in Ashland to an evening performance in Glen Allen (near Richmond), with stops in Mineral (ground zero of the 2011 earthquake that damaged the Washington Monument) and Culpeper and probably elsewhere too.
Had to be up here, but boy was it tempting to head south.
Here’s the Richmond Times Disgrace article:
AND: PBO was in Richmond today for an outdoor rally. Gorgeous day. Obama was in fine form, even if his voice was not.
Fifteen thousand attended. Take that!!
I also see from the Disgrace’s front page that Virginia is considering banning rhinocerouses as pets.
Damned intrusive government. I knew the homeowner’s association was going to be a problem, but really ….
Mudcat Saunders is a genius. Getting Ralph Stanley to campaign for Powell in Virginia is awesome.
I’d love to see Dr. Stanley, Bill Clinton and the President all together campaign in Virginia.
Did everybody remember to send Secretary Clinton a birthday card? She’s 65 today.
This just in: Meat Loaf supports Romney! It’s over. The Obama campaign might as well throw in the towel now. This endorsement just reinforced Donald Trump’s powerful support.
Now I’m really glad I didn’t spend the big bucks to see Meat Loaf in concert here in AZ last year. Today another bubble popped – ML and R. Ugh
Loved Tina Fey’s comment about rape. I wonder if there is a statistic kept on republican rape victims since the R candidates seems to put their foot in their mouth when talking about the subject. It amazes that other repugs follow and support the foot and mouth diseased ones. If there is’t a stat on repugs daughters/wives/victims, perhaps there should be one and maybe they would understand why their public stance is so repulsive to others.
Obama and Big Dog Clinton due in Northern Virginia Monday, although we’re waiting and seeing on Hurricane Sandy.
No word on Ralph Stanley. Fingers crossed he shows again too.
Ralph: lots of Virginians don’t like Eric Cantor! Don’t keep it just to his congressional district.
PS: just kind of overcast and warm today. Think we’ve had peak color, but a lot of green leaves still on the trees. No frost here yet; maybe they’re waiting.
“Attacks on me are not about the future!” is Romney’s latest campaign slogan on the stump, claiming that that’s what Obama’s campaign has devolved to since he’s run out of ideas and doesn’t have a record to run on.
And then what does he spend the rest of his stump speech doing? Attack Obama. I guess the irony is lost on him and his supporters.
Barack Obama for Re-Election
The Salt Lake Tribune and Denver Post support Obama. Des Moines Register supports Romney. Last time they went with a Republican was 1972, and look where that got us 😉
It’s official, I’m bionic
Perfect for Halloween.
Winds howling. Fierce out there. Power blinked a bit earlier this afternoon, but no problems since. Nice day to be snugly inside watching the leaves fly and listening to the wind. Cannot guess, but I’d say 40 mph gusts, in watching the rain slant.
Stay safe. Hoping that the leaves still on the trees don’t result in power outages. Of course if it does, the upside is that you won’t have to watch all those awful political ads on TV.
Hanging in here. Have the gas fireplace lit; will be warmth and light if power goes off. Power’s flickered a few times, and briefly knocked cable out, but we’re rocking and rolling.
Expecting 60 mph gusts. Rather enjoying the sound of the wind, and hoping the neighborhood trees stand their ground. No one driving for hours.
Storm interrupted absentee in person (what passes for early voting) in Virginia today and tomorrow. Don’t know if we might get a make-up day on Sunday.
Stay safe Dog ,hope you are too badly effected by the storm
Romney doesn’t have an honest bone in his body!
Brian, did you just figure that out? 😉
Safe and sound. Power stayed on throughout, albeit many blinks. We have a broken storm window on the back of the house — no damage to the interior window — and large tree limbs down in the back yard.
I rather enjoyed listening to the fierce winds, but kept imagining tree limbs falling on our house. For the most part, did not happen.
Don’t see any problems in neighbors’ yards. It’s unusually quiet; not much traffic.
Glad to hear things are ok Sra Dog.
Well if any of you are considering dental implants I can tell you that I’ve been in pain since yesterday, amazing that they drill 9 holes into your jaw bone and they screw into it that it doesn’t hurt the next day.
Sorry you hurt, Brian, take a pill and think about all your pretty teeth.
Happy Halloween everyone
Happy Halloween Bev.
OMG Mittens flips again – this time he likes FEMA. Think he flip-flopped once to many times and his campaign got buried under the sand of Sandy’s beach erosion.
