Seems right.. that's where he did his community organizing and met Michelle.. and he's going back

to community organizing when he's done. Read that today


Speaking to a group of schoolchildren at the Anacostia Library in Washington, D.C., Obama said he would like to focus on expanding education and economic opportunity after his presidency.

I’ll be done being president in a couple of years and I’ll still be a pretty young man,” he said. “And so I’ll go back to doing the kinds of work I was doing before, just trying to find ways to help people.”


Mahalo greataunt!

No surprise it's done by someone here on DU. Sen Sanders is way too smart to come up with this

Divisive shit.

He knows he won't win without the President Supporters. Bernie has respect for the President can see the big picture.. unlike those on DU who just like to throw ugly shit on Pres Obama and Hillary.

Mahalo for your OP, seabeyond.

thanks KMOD.. from your link..

"Obama has asked Congress to grant him fast-track authority, too. He wants it so the 12-country Trans-Pacific Partnership talks, which began five years ago, can close. He also wants Congress to grant this authority to him under new conditions, including that any final deal have strict, enforceable labor and environmental standards."


“We are supposed to vote on (fast-track), tie our hands and not vote on amendments, before we’ve seen what the (Trans-Pacific Partnership) is. I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who has seen something exactly like it more than a dozen times during his 34 years on Capitol Hill

"So why is the left making such baseless, tea party-style claims of executive branch overreach?

Because it’s desperately trying to prevent a deal from concluding. Withholding fast-track authority looks like a winning strategy. Delegates of other countries involved in the negotiations — including Japan, Australia and New Zealand — have said that a final deal won’t happen without a guarantee of an up-or-down vote from Congress.

“You cannot conclude serious trade negotiations without fast track. It can’t be done,” says Craig VanGrasstek, a trade historian at Harvard’s Kennedy School. “It’s like a law of nature.” History bears this out, he says, at least if you look at prior multilateral negotiations. No fast-track equals no big, unified deal."

They're shocked!

Good luck with that. Of course if Bruce Jenner is brainwashed into thinking

Republican="Constitution". And, "neither party has an monopoly on understanding".. which pisses me off and makes me think he has no clue.. then he'd think ol mitch and boner would be glad to help out this 'cause.

And, he doesn't have a gd clue what President Obama has done for Transgender people.

Obama Transgender Rights

"Obama's Transgender Rights Campaign Gets Little Attention" Yeah, it would take some actual investigating.. but "constitution"


With little of the fanfare or criticism that marked his evolution into the leader Newsweek nicknamed "the first gay president," Obama became the first chief executive to say "transgender" in a speech, to name transgender political appointees and to prohibit job bias against transgender government workers. Also in his first term, he signed hate crime legislation that became the first federal civil rights protections for transgender people in U.S. history.

Since then, the administration has quietly applied the power of the executive branch to make it easier for transgender people to update their passports, obtain health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, get treatment at Veteran's Administration facilities and seek access to public school restrooms and sports programs — just a few of the transgender-specific policy shifts of Obama's presidency.


I love my President!
