Christie’s press conference

made the splash it was meant to make. Too bad someone didn’t scream for  the Violence Act against women.

Even Twitter politics gets some cover

Hillary’s recovery

continues to be front page news


Gun control forgotten, tabloids are on to the new topics:

The  made up fiscal cliff

and the overly debated Hillary’s health

(Get well!)

3 weeks after the fact, after an election, campaigning for the big bargain and other goodies, Obama finally makes it to NYC.

The media (including the Post) certainly receives him better than W

(never thought I’d feel sorry for HIM), although his time was longer than Ws on NOLA


Yeah, it was the storms,

but it’s Obama’s Bloomberg too

And this is more from our Mayor

And this is more of what we should hear



This was the theme of a rather subdued letter from DCCC asking for my $3 for Obama. It starts humbly, trying to quell my worries

Look, we knew the polls were going to be tight in the run-up to the election.

.Who is this “we”? And why did “we” know that? With all the drumbeat in the media favoring Obama, why would this be a given? Anyway the punch line follows right after the low expectation pitch

But when it mattered most, President Obama fought for you.

Say what? How is his reelection “for me”? How is his campaign “when it mattered most”? Why didn’t he fight for me when he made the Hyde amendment permanent?

Why didn’t he fight for me when he nixed medicare for all and instead pushed a bailout for the insurance industry? How was he fighting for me when he extended Bush’s tax cuts for the rich beyond the R’s expectations?  Was he fighting for me when he set up the cat food commission?

Truth is, as the first debate showed, Obama could he barely bothered to fight for himself. This time, with the moderator helping with answers, he was a bit more into it. That was still a fight for himself. Who wins in this debate is not of any help to me. My own candidate was arrested for trying to participate.

But apparently, in order to reward Obama for not looking bored on stage

Now it’s time to fight for him.

Something technical about an FEC deadline follows, then the pitch for my $3 (apparently the big schtick about the # of donors is to be tried again). One more thing: the heading of that message was

He walked up on that stage…

.Seems to me this is all he did for the last for years. Except when he went in the wings to golf and party. And make secret deals with pharma, hospitals, insurers and Wall Street. Am I to fight for him for putting on a show? It wasn’t even an entertaining one.
