Bernie was wailing, too.. he wanted to Primary President Obama in 2012.. said "millions were

deeply disappointed..".

"Let me just suggest this. I think there are millions of Americans who are deeply disappointed in the president; who believe that, with regard to Social Security and a number of other issues.. " blah blah blah..

bravenak MOre.. http://thinkprogress.org/special/2011/07/22/277124/bernie-sanders-primary-obama/

Bullshite .. Millions aren't disappointed and that is the Obama Coalition that will have to be earned by the Dem Presidential candidate.

Amen, sistah! Thank you! yeah, Bernie wanted to Primary President Obama.. not too smart.

In fact it was bullshit.

I love President Obama too.. for who he is and what he's done for our country. There has been invaluable Hope and Change. I don't give a crap what the whiners have to say about anything.

And, he's off! I'm sure he's done by now.. but here's a couple of pics on his way..

President Barack Obama boards Marine One at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. President Obama will spend the rest of the weekend in Camp David with the First Family


Have a wonderful Birthday Weekend with your friends and family, POTUS!

Mahalo, DeepModem Mom~

Clinton is not black, nor does she have a black spouse and black children, which Obama used

effectively while campaigning to reach black voters in 2008. But Clinton showed a capacity for empathy that took some at the plenary by surprise."

snip from your link//

"Clinton didn’t equivocate to the audience here as to whether she was on Obama’s side or not. And she ripped Republicans — namely Jeb Bush on Friday — for saying they want to repeal Obamacare, snipping at the name of Bush’s political action committee, to some of her most enthusiastic applause."

I love this! Mahalo ismnotwasm.. great article!

Oh heck.. another snip//

"Clinton certainly played to the affinity that voters have for Obama, even alluding to the eulogy of South Carolina State Sen. Clementa Pinckney, in which Obama sang “Amazing Grace.” Said Clinton, “Obama delivered a eulogy that sounded like it had come straight from angels.”

But Clinton more than held her own with this audience, 95% of whom voted for Obama. “I thought she was more comfortable than Ben Carson,” Jones said. “And he’s black.”


“Right to Rise.” stuff your Orwellian bullshite jebby bush3! Somebody had to mention it!


“I don’t think you can credibly say that everyone has a right to rise and then say you’re for phasing out Medicare, or repealing Obamacare,” Clinton charged. “People can’t rise if they can’t afford health care. They can’t rise if the minimum wage is too low to live on. They can’t rise if their governor makes it harder for them to get a college education. And you can’t seriously talk about the right to rise and support laws that deny the right to vote.”


Mahalo Sancho .. Blast! it was perfect!

Mahalo, calimary! the shite is real.. all over the internet. The Obama Diary.. that has over

30 million hits since Oct 2009 has been posting Tweets from African Americans.. revealing how less than impressed they are with Bernie supporters who attacked those who supported #BlackLivesMatter @ NRN.

It doesn't stop there, of course.. snip from your link//

"But lately I'm seeing too many threads on the topic turn into sadly-typical spitting contests, with those supporting Bernie flinging epithets at Hillary supporters, breathlessly listing all her purported transgressions and foibles, denigrating her accomplishments, insulting her personal decisions, and acting as though anyone who supports her is an idiot who doesn't grasp the folly of their ways. I've had Bernie supporters get snarly with me, bait me to answer questions about why I might support Hillary, push me to defend her record, explain her business decisions, even parse her choice to stay with her husband. As a woman I find it appalling, but frankly, many of those most zealous on this topic are women... Hillary has always had the capacity to trip the wire with some on that side of the gender aisle!"


"What followed, then, with no acknowledgement from almost anyone about the actual subject matter of the picture, was a long thread of snarky, hateful comments about Hillary, one more hysterical than the other, calling out the good doctor for her clearly misguided connection to Ms. Clinton. The very first, left by a woman who posted and reposted various iterations of her initial comment, said (and I'm leaving off the poster's name, despite the public status of Goodall's Facebook page):"

Yeah, we've seen it all. They are their own worst enemies.

#BlackLivesMatter, Tarheel.. and it's so good they came to Protest at NRN.. they changed

the whole dynamic of the Democratic campaign.. which is Vital!

Although, Hillary was talking about racial inequality on June 20, 2015 in San Francisco at the Conference of Mayors..

Started out talking about the massacre in Charleston that had just happened.. and making a good eloquent case for common sense gun laws. Receiving a standing ovation!

"We need to tackle this problem With urgency and conviction. Mentions President Obama kindly 3 times.

"..Take racist violence head on.. struggle with racism is far from finished.."

"Race remains a deep fault line in America.. states racial inequality.

"Can't hide from hard truths on racial injustice.."

Poignant story about Debbie Dills.. I didn't know that.

Encourages "Cities against racism.. and preventing gun violence.."

We have to be "Too busy to hate" "Need more love and kindness in this country."

No wonder Hillary is doing so well with the African American Community on the whole.. she really speaks to them.

Hillary is a strong, powerful, intelligent woman who has the strength and the passion to be our President.

Clip from her speech at Urban League today..


Yes, President Obama is the real deal, calimary. Whatever didn't go quite as planned or

took longer than it should have.. it was all real.

No trying to fake the Nation with propaganda. The President has stood so strong against it all.. from both ends of the spectrum.

We got an intelligent, courageous, compassionate President with a great sense of humor to help him and us through the more trying times. And, he's giving new meaning to the term "lame duck".

Mahalo, calimary~

Hey Aloha, she! You treat people online like that and peeps are gonna notice..

Love Nerdy Wonka!
