4. Jackie Robinson, Jackie Robinson, Jackie Robinson, Jackie Robinson in the HOF
Sun May 26, 2013, 03:03 AM
May 2013

one doesn't stoop to their level
This "it makes him look weak" is yet another myth and he refuses to play by their wants.
Everybody wanted Jackie Robinson to fight back.
He was stronger than them. He is in the HOF. Where is Ben Chambers or the others today?

The war is won at the end. Not in May.
Barack Obama and the village it took to get him elected (WE the people, his core voters like me) won the revolution in 2008 and are moving forward (and as Jerry Brown showed in California, faster than one thinks with all the faux negativity out there).

It's summer. Sad (sarcasm)boo hoo for those that do not like the President for the next 16 weeks, no one is even listening. (and they haven't been listening to the sad sams and debbie downers. The core voters knew Barack Obama roped the dopes in debate #1 in perfect Ali style, while the sweating Cujo like Mittens (who still thinks he won because the faux media told him so and who might even attempt a rematch) flailed around aimlessly.

There will probably be an overabundance of kitchen sinks they will attempt to toss at him
but they won't even be able to lift them and might just get a hernia attempting to do so.
(Hey, didn't Vin Diesel just get a hernia, it was in the media, and I devoured that much more interest than anything Darrel Isaa ever said).

They also seemed to forget something and that is, President Obama is never running for any other election.
They also seemed to forget 95% of the democratic party stands strong in support of the president, and NOTHING will stop that 95% support.

It's all politics, all dirty tricks, the repubs have played this game for decades, everyone knows it, nobody cares about the faux scandals, all of which have been thoroughly repudiated.

And dang, President Obama will look great at the Jersey Shore on Tuesday standing there in the rebuilt shore, after the horrible devastation of Sandy. And standing next to the
REPUBLICAN Governor of New Jersey who from what they say is for some reason beloved to any and all in New Jersey (personally not though politically) and that is the one and only picture people will take home with them for the rest of the summer.

Me, I am going to spend the summer at the lake and beach grab some fun and play
as will America, and that takes us straight through Labor Day
and guess what, the world will still stand, and the world will stand tall in support of President Obama.

No matter what the fake media (which encompasses ALL the media, real and alt) says.
And no one reads the fake papers 'cept for the sport section and the gossip
(Hey, will Simon Cowell reunite with Paula Abdul on next years American Idol now that they fired 4 judges and the showrunner?)
Did you hear about Amanda Bynes? She tweets from jail that she didn't like her picture they made her pose for and may need some work.

Will they let OJ off?

America has voted, and they voted for Barack Obama, and like him both personally and politically. He's a keeper.
And the talk around town is about Hillary.
Dang if Bill Clinton isn't more popular now than ever. And Hillary is like 10 points even more popular than Bill.

yeah, the fake scandals. Didn't America tire of this in like 1996?
But that is how they play the game.
They are partying like it's 1999 when in fact its 2013

and hide as they try every single great news story and picking up economy, they still don't get it.

but the people do.

Happy Summer!
I got my white shorts and my bathing suit (this year after a year on wellness had to buy new clothes as my suit from last year would fall right off) and I can't wait to jump in.

(of course, this morning its about 40 degrees in New Jersey. but it's summer, gonna have a BBQ rain or shine tonight and have some fun.

I bet Darrell Isaa is the type who goes to the beach in his dark suit and has not sat in the sand in 30 years and just had a little fun.
(Wish I was at the Santa Monica pier, did you see how great the health plan is moving along in Darrell Isaa's state of California.

Jerry Brown roped the dopes again too.
Team Obama is something else.

and go see Before Midnight.All the billion dollar movies, all the political movies see those too, but make sure you see Before Midnight (and catch the first two if you never saw them).
You will laugh you will cry you will think wow

That's life. (cue in Frank Sinatra and let the Summer Party begin!)

Obama can work it out w/his buddy Boehner on the golf course next weekend. blkmusclmachine May 2013 #5
You guys are such hypocrites. Dennis Kucinich can sit on Ron Paul's advisory.... Tarheel_Dem May 2013 #6
It isnt the speaking that is the problem. It is the "sharing of mutual political interests" BlueStreak May 2013 #10
"Many people are concerned"? You mean here at DU, right? Tarheel_Dem May 2013 #19
There were 90 million who did not vote. Why was that? BlueStreak May 2013 #22
The point I'm making is your opinion is yours, and ONLY yours. The shit you've made.... Tarheel_Dem May 2013 #23
And likewise, your opinion represents exactly one person. BlueStreak May 2013 #24
Uuuuugh. I had no idea she did that. How could she "Stand with Rand" ??!! SunSeeker May 2013 #20
That's just it. The young people who power these folks don't have a clue. Tarheel_Dem May 2013 #21
She wrote it on a heart, and wrote "love" on her tweet! SunSeeker May 2013 #25
I couldn't agree more. It's obvious Medea has been off her meds for some time now. Tarheel_Dem May 2013 #27
Yes, I've been increasingly uncomfortable with her tactics, but that just sealed it for me. SunSeeker May 2013 #28
Pushing for impeachment would be an enormous mistake for the GOP. ... spin May 2013 #7
The way I see it we have just about three and a half years of this winning to put up with.......... wandy May 2013 #8
But the way Obama deals with it will largely determine our fate in 2016 BlueStreak May 2013 #11
"the nominee for the Scandal Party" - if you beleive that, your perceptions are out of whack. emulatorloo May 2013 #12
I never heard him say that. I heard the opposite. BlueStreak May 2013 #16
I'de like to agree with you. For what it's worth I'de like to see Obama take a ball bat..... wandy May 2013 #14
To some extent, it's just the GOP fighting the last war starroute May 2013 #15
