Post debate surveys indicate that Crist came in first, Scott third, and the fan a close second.

I wonder if refusing to take the stage for a debate on live TV is disqualifying for @FLGovScott? Let's ask @chucktodd.

TOD http://theobamadiary.com/2014/10/15/fantrum/

Is that so? This Dem in SD isn't running from President Obama, Rick Weiland.. and Michelle

Obama campaigned with Wendy and Mary Burke.

Rick Weiland's singing campaign across South Dakota


That's reminiscent of chuck claiming..

It's always everyone else fault.. it couldn't be chucky's..

It's Beyond "Lazy".. it's Corrupt.

Chuck Todd: Pointing out Republican lies isn't his job


Just Whining about Democrats.. that's Chucky's "Job".

Why is this Hack Smiling?

In 2012 NBC told PBO & Romney 2 take down ads using NBC hosts in campaign ads. Crickets from @NBC on the @chucktodd Kentucky ad.

McConnell flubs health care basics in key...

Either the Republicans' Senate leader is confused by the basics of health care policy or he's choosing to mislead the public on purpose. http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/mcconnell-flubs-health-care-basics-key-debate

Remember @ChuckTodd said it was not his job to expose GOP lies?
Seems like he believes it's his job to spread them.

Good for Bernie saying it.. “It is very easy to criticize the president,”

“It is very easy to criticize the president,” Sanders replied. with right now.“But this is an enormously complicated issue. We are here today because of the disastrous blunder of the Bush-Cheney era, which got us into this war in Iraq in the first place, which then developed the can of worms that we’re trying to deal ”

Another critique on Elizabeth's interview with Thomas Frank, she..

Why don’t progressives care about labor unions?


Thomas Frank’s interview with Elizabeth Warren includes Warren attempting to balance praise for the President with a completely false critique that is a staple of the Professional Disappointed Left.


When the Obama administration rescued the auto industry and the UAW, Wall Street absolutely insisted that bondholders who had irresponsibly financed the worthless managements of both GM and Chrysler must get 100% back. That did not happen. The shareholders were wiped out. The bondholders suffered, as they should have, massive losses. The Obama Administration used the savings to wipe out the debts of GM and Chrysler and to save the UAW pension/health fund. None of this is secret and the right wing has bitched about it non-stop since the moment it happened. The “left”, however, doesn’t give a damn about a million jobs, the security of GM and Chrysler retirees and the unions. This example is not the only one of Obama’s economic team battling on behalf of working people, but it is the most revealing - about the Progressives and “the left” and what they think is important..


John Boehner Wigs Out and Calls Obama Lawless For Trying to Close Illegal GITMO Prison


"Obama has tried on a yearly basis to close GITMO, but he has been consistently blocked by Democrats and Republicans in Congress who refuse to provide the funding that is required in order to close the prison and move the prisoners.

Congress stepped up their efforts to keep the secret prison open by passing laws that prohibited President Obama from bringing prisoners to the United States for trial. The fact that many people don’t understand is that it is the Pentagon that makes the final decision on detainee transfer, not Obama. So far, the Pentagon has slowed walked the president’s requests for more detainee transfers.

Republicans in Congress are the main reason why GITMO has remained open. The president is squeezed by a congress that refuses to close the prison, and the Pentagon bureaucracy that is doing whatever it pleases.

Given these obstacles, it is no wonder the president is looking for ways to close GITMO on his own. Boehner’s conclusion that Obama is lawless for trying to uphold the law would be funny if it weren’t so typical of the Republican treatment of this president.
