Obama gave me a call this morning, as I was immersed in a Law and Order that was so tricky , I admit I was missing the nuances of it. Seems a fellow was doing something very very bad, financially, and an employee gal got stuffed in a dumpster, dead, cuz she was onto him…
I told him this:
Biden did what he had to, and well.Infuse the ‘’base’’ with fire, the fire Obama dampened in his first ‘’debate’’.
That is so f-ing important that I would love to email the president and tell him he needs to tap into that magic energy of 2008 somehow…
Maybe Joe limited Romney’s momentum, is what some say.
Stopped a slide in the holy polls?
Stay tuned, you will find out .
From a bunch of fast-talking anchorpeople & experts & insiders.
They are dissecting the debate on the news channels now.
Seems this Libya fiasco is still not explicable.
Romney may make a point of it, but!he gaffed by issuing a statement far before any facts were known. A stalemate on that one..........
Then again, the facts still are not known. Biden threw the Intelligence Community under the so called Bus, which was exactly what you have to do if you are a true leader. Boo hoo, they may say, and sqauwk ferociously.
So what? This intelligence community is only the most important job in international affairs!
The president said he could not have been prouder of his vice president, when asked.
He had watched the debate on Air Force one.
I am watching a British guy now. On msbc.
Two Democratic partisan figures are his guests.
These guests are rather young.
He? The host? a savvy ironic quick talking 'head'.
Both theinterviewees are black. Interesting cultural moment, if I can pull it into my mind.
English brainy egghead snark interviewing the descendants of slaves.
they brainy eggheads too!
Ok there is something about the two "stimulus letters".
British guy said,
“Republican divorce from reality was apparent in the debate, and outside too!”
Flash to: damn fools outside the arena calling Obama a communist.
The lovely black lady and black fellow are immensely entertaining, as is the British fellow. They all say that these folks should define Communism, what the hell they mean. That is improbable.
Shit .. But
before we go,
(to ads for bayer aspirin , aarp, something called ‘go long.com”. )
we get a sound bite of Sarah Palin saying something
about a chase for animals, and one of the animals being ‘’underfoot’’
(Paul Ryan), due to the moderator’s obviously incompent performance.
Metaphoric comment but it makes little sense. Ryan was underfoot, eh? Kinda the whole strategy, you dumb b.
Re . this metaphor the former governor put in my head:
A giraffe stumbling after one hell of a giant lion (Uncle JOe) is what I thought.
Oh how the English fella is getting uppity: Re Ryan: "One big crap burger after another. Especially when he says he will save the middle class” .
He is passionate.
I thought newspeople were supposed to be dispassionate.
Naive presumption i guess..
Now he is on about ‘’capital gain talks’’,
‘’closing loop holes in the Tax Code’’ etc.
“The nest egg!” whatever the fuck that is.
Economics is my blind spot. Thought I got A’s in it . Two college courses…It just cant find any neurons to nestle in, my economic knowledge. Too much metaphysics, some might say.
~“how the answers of the candidates to the question of FAITH is next,”
my British fella tells me.
~More ads. Custom built homes for old folks.
Re Faith. “
you cannot separate your private from your public life.” Ryan.
Church and Politics rather intertwined, which they say offends many women, re. the ‘war on women’ we hear about. Like his plans to limit abortion. Grant personhood to a cell.
“I just cannot impose that on people
(though I personally oppose it.)” Biden.
TO prevail by or as if byAuthority.
To obtrude or force oneself on another.
Now it is 5 pm and Chris Matthews is fast talkin
about Ryan’s Plan for American women. Chris is spouting at light speed about “the personhood bill” . Extreme opposition between the candidates, both Catholics.
A nice , uh, mulatto woman (can u still use that term?” ) said women’s rights are under attack.
She and Ron Reagan were his interlocutors. Ron has nice hair , a good voice, &says Romney is a bit more moderate on this issue, won’t really do anything about abortion rights.
Don't worry, it will not really happen.
Unless enough people back him. Then it'll be done, make no mistake.
“A carousel,” says the pretty mulatto lady “No one knows what Romney thinks about abortion. The fringes of the right have shanghaied the situation. He will go all along with it , in fear.”
Life begins at conception...? The instant a holy biological event is 'consummated' (for the Man at least, haw) and the billions of sperm cells rush deterministically toward that egg, if it is gonna show up. If not? Ah there is next time..
That is where LIFE, which I say indeed is holy, begins?
I doubt it. I am actually sort of mystical myself, not like a mother fucking Mormon, but i think whatever nascent 'soul' was planted goes off to a so called 'better place' than this shitty world...
Sorry about the controversy. Back to the arena.
Matthews is making my head spin after the snarky cool English guy.
The 4 eyed English guy was easier to watch.
He was satirical… ironic….but…from what damn vantage point?
I have known a few english guys and they are so damn supercilious that i gotta put on a goofy rube face to do a ''Socrates Thing" on their limey asses..
But i liked this Limey..
~Anyway, in conclusion of hopefully my last political piece anywhere ever, i say:
What is a moral or intellectual ‘’vantage ‘’ point, or perspective, for a citizen?
(‘’Vantage = an advantageous position, that provides an advantage, or superiority in a contest or competition)
Gals, the latest polls show a dead heat between Romney and Obama among women. I fell off the chair when I heard that! WTF?Obama won cuz he had the women’s vote. Last time.
I am a bit of a scholar, and I learned the difference
between Conservatives and Liberals.
The former say govmint gotta be less.
The latter say …uh?...
Well Biden said a lot of stuff I believe in , to a point.
I just cannot grasp the Democratic message.
It better not be about ‘’taxes’’!
Taxes are the world’s most volatile & also boring subject.
The ‘’vision thing!” as dear senile ghw bush said. That is what I crave.
(what is JUNIOR up to ? Does anyone know?)
“stop talkin how you care about people. Show me.”s
aid a fine flawed man. Biden.
Firing up the ‘’base’’whatever the hell that is.
Joe smirked and laughed and smiled and made huge movements.
Apposite of Obama.
“Overlarge responses. Very ‘east coast’ “Said Chris M." Look here! The Republican base will not be swayed, though Biden was way over the top so i am thinking of the ''undecideds" & think they may be put off."
Uncle Joe nailed the 47 percent shit good and hard and if he is not gonna be my vice president, I am gonna immigrate to the City of the Mind.
No one believes in that shit anymore,
but every effort I make out there in what my Mom used to call
(to tease me) “The Big Wide World” is going towards a Utopia,
or kingdom of Heaven, or Brotherhood of Men, etc,
best I can provide it. One bipolar loser at a time!My life work.
Politics, blah. I guess it is local, as the pointy heads say.
They are indeed correct .
