"President Obama wants fast track authorization in order to proceed with the negotiations from a

position of power.."

snip//

President Obama wants fast track authorization in order to proceed with the negotiations from a position of power – in order to receive the best possible set of concessions from nations with interests which conflict with our interests. The only way to know if he succeeds or not is to look at the final negotiated deal – and then judge it on its entire impact – not on some leaked, out-of-context pieces of the puzzle. After a final deal is reached, there will be an opportunity for public debate. Fast track authority doesn’t mean that Congress is going to support whatever deal is reached. It just means that politics won’t undermine a deal before it can be reached.

snip//

"I haven’t made up my mind whether to support TPP or not. I will decide when an agreement is finalized and not before. I tend to distrust deals which are based on some concept of “free trade” which I know only exists in theory. But I won’t make up my mind on any specific trade deal until I see the details – the final details, not a few leaked pieces of information. I will still have time to voice my concerns before Congress decides whether to ratify it or not."

But all some see is "secrecy"! and think it's bad and Elizabeth Warren hasn't helped anything by ignorantly hammering on this as if we won't have a public debate after the best concessions possible are reached.

I predict it's going to be a brilliant day in NYC on Roosevelt Island for the Country~

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2015/06/01/hillary-clinton-to-hold-official-launch-rally-on-roosevelt-island-in-new-york-city/

Edit to add~

Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in New York City is the Perfect Place to Launch!

snip//

"A campaign official says that the event will take place at the Roosevelt Island park and be followed by a "nationally webcast organizing meeting in Iowa." Then the Democratic presidential candidate will do another campaign swing through Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.

The park celebrates Franklin Roosevelt's 1941 State of the Union address highlighting the "four freedoms" : freedom of speech and expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

"Her speech will lay out her view of the challenges facing this country and her vision and ideas for moving the country forward," the campaign said.

The park also honors Eleanor Roosevelt, one of the nation's most celebrated First Ladies."

If bush1 kept us so "safe", bush2, then why did 2,996 perish from Terrorists attacks on 9/11/2001?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casualties_of_the_September_11_attacks

Had little bush paid attention to this instead of "removing brush".. then maybe he would have but he didn't and you're a god damn liar.. August 6, 2001 Memo that stated..

"Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US was the President's Daily Brief prepared by the Central Intelligence Agency and given to U.S. President George W. Bush on Monday, August 6, 2001. The brief warned of terrorism threats from Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda 36 days before the September 11, 2001 attacks."

Anyway.. bush2 has come a long way since this...



Still..

Nancy LeTourneau is saying basically the same, 23..

Those who accuse people of calling Bernie a racist simply because they are asking questions about his stance on the uber important racial issues of our time, are only hurting themselves and their campaign to get Bernie in the White House.

I can only imagine how Black people feel about having their concerns dismissed by charges of "you're calling Bernie a Racist!".. This Scottish lass is pissed! I see exactly how they like to play the victim card based on fantasy.

"But the golden age wasn’t golden for people who weren’t white.."

"Yes, African American incomes rose and unemployment declined in those years. But black people were locked out of many of the wealth-generating opportunities of the era: blocked from suburbs with restricted covenants and redlined into neighborhoods where banks wouldn’t lend; left out by the GI Bill, which didn’t prevent racial discrimination; neglected by labor unions, which discriminated against or outright blocked black members. (That’s why I gave my book, “What’s the Matter with White People?”, the subtitle “Why We Long for a Golden Age that Never Was.”)"

snip//

"And American politics today requires that they be corrected: no Democrat can win the presidency without consolidating the Obama coalition, particularly the African American vote."


That's what I've been saying repeatedly! Obama is a popular President.. I don't care that the majority on DU doesn't know or care.

"A Tidal Wave Of Good News In Iowa: Hillary Clinton Soaring and Obama Beloved by Democrats"

snip//

Starting off with asking likely Democratic caucus-goers to rate their feelings from very favorable, mostly favorable, mostly unfavorable, or very unfavorable about prominent Democrats, President Obama topped the list of 89% favorable to 9% unfavorable.

The President hasn't rejected all "race specific solutions".. but too many people don't even know about this from the President..

"My Brother's Keeper" Feb 27, 2014



Youth Guidance: President Obama Invites BAM Program Back To The White House

President Obama has invited Youth Guidance’s Becoming a Man (B.A.M.) program back to Washington D.C. to kick off a new White House initiative called “My Brother’s Keeper.” Three B.A.M. students from Hyde Park High School, along with B.A.M. Lead Supervisor, Marshaun Bacon, and Youth Guidance Board Member, Stuart Taylor, will visit the White House Thursday and Friday. The President’s initiative will support young male minorities by bringing foundations and companies together to find ways to keep young men in school and out of the criminal justice system.

President Obama speaks at the launch of the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance May 4, 2015



And, that's what he's said he's going to do when he leaves office, too..

"Obama’s Retirement Plan: Help Black Kids"

After he leaves the White House, friends say the president will return to his passion: helping African Americans through his My Brother's Keeper Alliance.

What is in Barack Obama’s heart? Underneath that cool exterior, it can be hard to tell. When he leaves office in 2017, he will be a fit 55-year-old with decades of productive life likely ahead of him. How will he use them?

I went to the Bronx on Monday with a hunch that Obama was about to tell us; and I wasn’t disappointed.

Mahalo for your thread, geek.




Such an accomplishments helping Gay Rights! They cerainly are "human rights"!

Quite the resume Hillary has! Too funny how some feel the need to jump on postive accomplishments

and try to insert their squeaky negativity.

they're doing Bernie such an incredible amount of disservice.
