1. Candy is well known at DU to be a right winger.

Just a matter of time before she jumps to Faux News.

Big $$$ await her there.

33. I remember listening to Glen Beck

He was a radio jokester who would trick people into getting angry over non existent issues. Only the really stupid would fall for his shtick. When he came on the scene pretending to be a serious radio personality I thought it was just another joke.

Plouffe should have said, "Why are you repeating Fox News lies, Candy? You know that's not true."

9. The rightwing has a checklist...

... against which they compare Presidential actions to see if they are actually an "accomplishment."

It's a pretty short list:

1) Is the President a Democrat?
Yes - Stop. No Accomplishment has occurred.
No - Go to #2.

2) Did the action create a tax break for the wealthy?
Yes - This action is an Accomplishment.
No - Go to #3

3) Did the action involve bombing a Muslim-majority nation?
Yes - This action is an Accomplishment.
No - Go to #4.

4) Did the action create an American Theocracy?
Yes - This action is an Accomplishment.
No - No Accomplishment has occurred.

End of checklist.

10. This is why I stopped watching CNN a long time ago

And they wonder why CNN is dead last in the ratings. I don't think Faux News anchors have ever said Obama has accomplished nothing. What a joke!!

Asked the team to take some time and educate Ms. Crowley on some of President Obama's accomplishments and mentioned that there would have been more, had we not had a congress that put politics before people and before governing.

Thanks for the contact info. Wonder if she'll come on the air and admit she was wrong? Nah, that would be the honorable thing to do and that won't happen anytime soon. Or ever.

18. email sent copy below :)

Apparently you are unaware of the subject matter when discussing President Obama's accomplishments during his time in office. In spite of obstructionism and great opposition (yes he had a democratic majority for two years but arcane Senate rules prevented him from being able to utilize that majority to his (and our) benefit. The following is a partial list:
Heís killed Osama Bin Laden.
Eliminated several other Al-Qaeda leaders
Ended the War in Iraq
Begun the drawdown of forces from Afghanistan
End-run Republican obstructionism by recess-appointing Richard Cordray to run the Consumer Financial Protection Board.
Obama has overhauled the food safety system
Advanced womenís rights in the work place
Ended Donít Ask, Donít Tell (DADT) in our military
Stopped defending DOMA in court.
Passed the Hate Crimes bill.
Appointed two pro-choice women to the Supreme Court.
Expanded access to medical care and provided subsidies for people who canít afford it.
Expanded the Childrenís Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
Fixed the preexisting conditions travesty in health insurance.
Invested in clean energy.
Overhauled the credit card industry, making it much more consumer-friendly.
While Dodd-Frank bill was weak in many respects, it was still an extremely worthwhile start at re-regulating the financial sector.
He created Elizabeth Warrenís dream agency: The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

He got help for people whose health was injured during the clean-up after the 9/11 attacks.

20. CNN is Pox

in a cheap disguise. They tanked when they lurched right to recover the audience lost to Pox. Then they lost the middle. Really bad management. Crowley has always been a right wing shill and second hand reporter.

so that tells you how far down the septic tank CNN has gone. She's smarter than Blitzer or King or those fakeoids.

what a fucking joke that station is.
a bigger joke that Fox in many ways.

I sent her the information -- she apparently can't get her head out from the rear ends of the repugniscum -- so the poor dear doesn't know what the news/truth/facts are.

27. I loved CNN when Ted Turner owned it.

Once it was sold, it went downhill....and once W came into power it charged down the hill to try to match FOX News....I have never liked Crowley from the first time I saw her on CNN. She is a true blue suck up Republican. She belongs on Fox News but there may be a problem. They usually prefer blonde Barbies.

@crowleyCNN

If you put a period in front of the account then everyone that follows you will receive the same message she receives from you (.@crowleyCNN)
