I’m baaa-aaaack!

Thanks for your patience while I enjoyed some time off from blogging to enjoy The Most Beautiful Place in America with my most beautiful wife. If you you checked in at Eclectablog through last Tuesday, you probably saw some photos from our trip to the Sleeping Bear Dunes and the Leelanau Peninsula in “the pinky” of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. I’ll […]

Pulpit: bullied

Last night, President Obama spoke to the country about the looming crisis, imposed on the country by Republicans who have what appears to be a single interest in mind: protecting the interests of every single millionaire and billionaire in the USA from having to give up even one penny of their money. It should never have come to this but […]

The debt ceiling & the individual mandate: how you know GOP negotiators were NEVER serious

With Mitch McConnell’s declaration earlier this year that his main political goal is ensuring that Barack Obama is a one-term president, everything else that has happened since makes sense. But there’s something that happened in the negotiations between the White House, Congressional Democrats and Congressional Republicans that tells you, beyond a doubt and without any room for argument, that the […]

President Adult

It’s pretty hard to argue that President Obama and his negotiating team are not the only adults at the negotiating table. If the press doesn’t report on yesterday’s debt ceiling press conference and point that out, they will have failed us tremendously once again. Full press conference from yesterday: My favorite two spots came at about 18 minutes and 27 […]

Another Obama pony delivered. This one has rainbows, too.

Thank Goddess this man is president. The ban on gays serving openly in the U.S. military will end in 60 days, President Barack Obama said on Friday after notifying Congress that all the requirements to repeal it have been met. The armed forces are ready to set aside the 18-year-old “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that forced gay recruits to […]

I’ll gladly condemn you today for a capitulation you might (or might not) do Tuesday

I’ll gladly condemn you today for a capitulation you might (or might not) do Tuesday

At some point yesterday afternoon, a legislative aide leaked that the White House was caving — CAVING I tellzya! — and was going to give up everything to the Republicans on raising of the debt ceiling. According to this very serious source, the deal between House Speaker Boehner and President Obama was all but a done deal. A Congressional aide […]

Presidential Eye Candy (with jazz!)

Thanks to my friend Rhoda who sent along this video she made of President Obama. When you have a dude this suave and sharp, you can easily do a seven minute video and never run out of great images. And this doesn’t even include much First Lady eye candy goodness. You could do an hour of her, so far as […]

Lawrence O’Donnell: What you are seeing is the most masterful rope-a-dope ever seen by a president

This made me go to bed late last night. Brilliant analysis. Whenever I find myself doubting what the president is doing, I’m always reassured by recalling how many previous times I have had those doubts only to be shown by the end that his strategy was brilliant and successful, achieving the best possible results given the situation. The debt ceiling […]

Barack Obama — Made in the USA

Barack Obama — Made in the USA

One thing I’ve always loved about Organizing for America (OFA) is their ability to have some fun with their fundraising. Here’s the latest: A coffee mug with the saying “Made in the USA” underneath a picture of President Obama. On the other side is a reproduction of his birth certificate. You can get it as a t-shirt, too. Good times, […]
