This is such an insight into politics...I forgive this woman. So sincere.

What do you think about DOMA? I think it is discriminatory (in section 3) and I stand with the President in choosing not to defend it.

The Presidents calls out Fox News and Rush

I love it when my President is brave enough to call out the scum of the media, Fox News and tell it like it is. Awesome!
"One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates. If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it.
I think John Boehner genuinely wanted to get a deal done, but it was hard to do in part because his caucus is more conservative probably than most Republican leaders are, and partly because he is vulnerable to attack for compromising Republican principles and working with Obama.
The same dynamic happens on the Democratic side. I think the difference is just that the more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word. And I think at least leaders like myself—and I include Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in this—are willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done."

Truer words have never been spoken. I completely agree that Boehner was trying to do his job and compromise...but bc of the pressure from hot heads like those seen on Fox News and silly radio shows, the right wingers were fired up and not willing to work it out.  Furthermore, the Dems are guilty of pressuring things...but it is within never goes as far as Fox or Rush or Beck...all the dirty words that feel filthy leaving my lips. Those people care more about profit than progress; more about ratings than reason. If anyone is called unpatriotic it should be those people....

Thanks goes to this article where I read this quote from our President:   HERE

Repubs are at it again...war on women

I am an advocate for protecting evidence to prove someone guilty of something as serious and traumatic as rape...but this is UNREAL! Sure is happening...not in another country...but yes...the U.S. of A!

Vice President Meets with Video Game Industry | The White House

Vice President Meets with Video Game Industry | The White House

The Inauguration

I LOVED every second I saw of the Inauguration! It was such a day of celebration. I loved the music, the poems, the candid moments and of course the President's speech was a highlight! I found it highly appropriate that Mr. President celebrated his beginning of his second term (after being the first black President to being the first black President re-elected for a 2nd term), on Martin Luther King Jr Day! Even if you disagree with the politics of the have to (if you are reasonable) agree that this family is adorable and that they are good people. And I could not help but feel connected to American history...and American tradition as I watched the proceedings throughout the It was awesome! If you want to see some funny moments including a look Michelle gave Boehner at the luncheon and Al Roker's freak out as they (the President, First lady and VP and Jill Biden) walked 1/2 mile of the parade route click here.
