Friday Afternoon Thread: President Obama Holds Press Conference on the Economy (Video) – UPDATED with Mittens response!

President Obama calls on Congress to pass the bipartisan, paid-for ideas that he proposed last year to put construction workers back to work upgrading our roads and bridges, teachers back in the classroom educating our kids and police and firefighters back on the job keeping our communities safe, and addresses the state of the economy, including the situation in Europe, which continues to pose headwinds to our recovery here at home. June 8, 2012.

And here is what Williard had to say today in response to PBO’s presser:

    – – – –2,000 former NFL players file lawsuit over brain injury risks— –

    – – – – –It only takes a few seconds to tackle a football player, but the effects of a blow to the head can last a lifetime. More than 2,000 former NFL players collectively sued the league on June 7, accusing the industry of systematically hiding information related to football-related head traumas and the link to permanent brain injuries.

    Helmet manufacturer Riddell, Inc., is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit, which was filed in Philadelphia on Thursday and consolidates more than 80 previously pending suits.

    The plaintiffs, who included players and their family members, want the NFL to take financial responsibility for players suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other neurological conditions — both in ex-players who are currently suffering from those conditions and others who worry they may develop these medical problems in the future. The suit says the medical conditions are a direct result of football-related head injuries.

    The complaint reads: “The NFL, like the sport of boxing, was aware of the health risks associated with repetitive blows producing sub-concussive and concussive results and the fact that some members of the NFL player population were at significant risk of developing long-term brain damage and cognitive decline as a result. Despite its knowledge and controlling role in governing player conduct on and off the field, the NFL turned a blind eye to the risk and failed to warn and/or impose safety regulations governing this well-recognized health and safety problem.”

    The lawsuit also accuses the NFL of “mythologizing” sports-related violence.

      Mixed thoughts here too. Players, their money seeking/needing families turn a blind eye to the truth, even when confronted with it. They need a tour around the quad/TBI rehab facility I volunteer with.

      The average age of a TBI pt is mid twenties, is male and is the sporty/party/risk taking type. We had a sad case in CT about ten years ago. I was told to cut a little girl a lot of slack. She had just learned that her 14 year old brother, in one of our private schools will never walk again due to a soccer injury. I could go on. It is my pet cause. But I shall stop. Thank you for the post.

  • Hmm….

    Indeed, Mr. Teixeira frames the battle between Mr. Obama and Mitt Romney, his Republican challenger, as a contest pitting “demographics vs. economics.” In an analysis for the liberal Center for American Progress, he and his co-author, John Halpin, calculate that in 12 battleground states, the proportion of votes cast by working-class whites, a group Mr. Obama lost lopsidedly in 2008, will drop by 3 percentage points this fall.

    By contrast, they project the proportion cast by minority voters, who backed Mr. Obama by overwhelming margins, will rise by 2 percentage points. The share of votes cast by white college graduates, which Mr. Obama nearly split with his 2008 Republican rival, John McCain, is projected to rise by 1 percentage point.

    From one election to the next, such shifts have only marginal effects. But over the last generation, they have combined with political changes to invert the electoral map.

    Here’s why Repubs are working overtime to bust up unions:

    Some changes, such as the decline in voters from union households to 21 percent of the 2008 electorate from 29 percent in 1976, benefit Republicans.

      One of the first things these rethugs did when they got in these state legislatures was to try and pass bills that would stop people from paying union dues automatically thru payroll deduction. It succeeded in many places and makes it very cumbersome for unions to collect dues – which help to fund their members interests – which rethugs HATE.

    – – –Fox News Betrayed by Their Own Obama Supporting Poll – —

    — —Going through a recent poll on Fox News is like taking a trip down the rabbit hole.

    This time, while claiming Mitt Romney and President Obama are tied overall in their own poll, the hosts of Fox and Friends were flabbergasted to find out that Americans trust President Obama more on foreign policy, education, terrorism, bringing the US together, and fighting special interests.

    Watch the June 8 edition of Fox News’ Fox & Friends courtesy of Media Matters:

    – – –SNIP — –

    Fox News has devoted itself to driving a wedge between American citizens in order to muddly the waters of the clearly corporate agenda they support in the name of “conservativism”. They appear shocked that in spite of their daily hatred, Americans trust the President more than their own party.

    It’s possible that Americans know exactly who is to blame for the ugly rhetoric and unpatritoic division in this country.

    Mitt Romney: We don’t need more cops, firefighters or teachers

    Romney made the comments in response to Obama’s presser today, at which the president claimed the “private sector is doing fine.” Per CNN:

    Romney said of Obama, “he wants another stimulus, he wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more fireman, more policeman, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.”


    Do you get the feeling that PBO just says “i’ll spot him at the 50 yd line…won’t even make him go the distance of the whole field. He can have the Steelers o-line of the 70s, Emmitt Smith, Randy Moss and Jerry Rice. I’ll take the Lions defense of the 90s which SUCKED, and we’ll see if we can stop’em.

    I’ll be damned if Mittens didn’t throw the ball right into PBO’s hands.

          Damn straight we do. Last week there was a huge rebellion in town. The teachers are pissed and they are not going to take it anymore. They work 24/7, the kids are tougher than they’ve ever been,. there is little cooperation at times from parents and the pricipals don’t have their backs. There is movement away from specialized programs and getting kids back to their “home schools.” But there will not be the support staff in the classrooms to accomodate this. Class sizes are ridiculous. They are LOSING it. I know several who are not even waiting out their 20 for benes, because they are burnt out. One is among the best I’ve seen. One entitled white kid responded to me with a “Huh, yo?” I answered “Yo, you yo me one more time and you’ll be yoing the pricipal next.” He was SHOCKED. The kids at the “2%on reduced lunches across town” (read – melatonin deficient0 threaten their teachers with repercussions from the family aoorneys when they are required to do anything. Like study. Meanwhile across town, in the “90% on reduced lunches”where I mainly sub, we found handcuffs on the playground, and a knife in a locker. And I sub ELEMENTARY.

          You GO Romney. Dump us all. And the kids will just strap themselves to the roofs of their hybrids and bop off to private schools.

    Governor Christie Cheers Firing Of Public Employees: ‘That’s The Right Direction’

    During a press conference Friday, President Obama noted accurately that layoffs at the state and local government level have hurt the economy as it slowly recovers from the Great Recession. “The big challenge we have in our economy right now is state and local government hiring has been going in the wrong direction,” he said.

    Later in the day, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) responded by saying that the firing of government workers means things are going in “the right direction,” as reported by CBS’ Rebecca Kaplan:

      The people of New Jersey need to fire him next time he runs. What’s wrong with these Republican elected officials who think that the work for the Koch brothers is more important than the work of the people who help them run the government? By the way who pays for Christie’s salary, security, mansion, etc.? To be blunt, what is wrong with many of us American voters who keep voting for them? Why are we allowing Mitt Romney and his cronies to wage war on public employees? Is being an employee of Bain capital more beneficial to Americans than being a cop, firefighter or a teacher? Can any of these Republican office seekers function without the aid and service of public employees? If Romney despises public service why is he running for President? The last time I checked, the President was paid and sustained by public funds. Is Romney prepared to pledge that if he is elected President he will not reside at the White House and he will forgo traveling on Air force One or Marine One because they are all paid by MY TAXES! Obviously we know he won’t. Yet, he is allowed to go around demonizing teachers, firefighters, cops and other public employees.

    – –“It is absolutely clear the economy is not doing fine,” he said in a brief appearance before cameras in the Oval Office following a meeting with Phillippine President Benigno Aquino.

    “That’s the reason I had a press conference,” Obama continued. “That’s why I spent yesterday, the day before yesterday, this past week, this past month and this past year talking about how we can make the economy stronger. The economy is not doing fine. There are too many people out of work. The housing market is still weak, too many homes underwater and that’s precisely why I asked Congress to start taking some steps that can make a difference.”

      If they cannot find work, they can do VOLUNTEER work. I covered a third grade today. The teacher, a woman I respect, displayed the coolest poster:” Are you part of the problem, or part of the solution?” For the helluva it, I tried it out when kids were arguing over nothing and wasting class time. “Boys and girls, particularly those who refuse to stand down from your disagreement, are you part of the problem or part of the solution?” Shocked the hell out of me, but they looked down at their hands, mumbled, “the problem” and we were able to move on. Clearly it was not ME, or one POSTER, but a year’s worth of reminders and reinforcement from a teacher they respected. But it showed that EIGHT YEAR OLDS can recognize the truth and modify their behavior accordingly. Every day I spend subbing, makes me more and more contemptuous of the anti-Obama forces on all sides.

    Romney heckler and a Biz owner in Council Bluffs: We were disrespected

    Council Bluffs, Ia. — A 62-year-old Vietnam veteran who continuously disrupted Mitt Romney’s event here today by screaming “liar” over a megaphone says he was disrespected by security and guests who shouted insults and escorted him to a less convenient area to protest.

    “He’s a liar. Don’t believe him,” Randy Elsey screamed with a megaphone to the audience of more than 400 people at Bayliss Park in Council Bluffs.

    Elsey, a Council Bluffs resident who is disabled, said he decided to protest Romney’s event over concerns that the public is being hoodwinked by political rhetoric. He’s particularly concerned that his Medicaid will be slashed.

    – — –Wednesday, Florida Governor Rick Scott announced he would defy the Department of Justice and push forward with his purge of thousands of registered voters. The process has targeted hundreds of fully eligible U.S. voters.

    Scott and other prominent Republicans in Florida argue that the Justice Department’s actions were motivated by partisanship. Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL), for example, directly accused Attorney General Eric Holder of “working to enable voter fraud” to get Obama elected.

    But Scott’s battle with the Department of Justice may end up being more symbolic than substantive. Why? All of Florida’s county election supervisors, who are ultimately responsible for maintaining the voter rolls, refuse the execute the purge. Florida’s 67 local election supervisors include 30 Republicans.

    – – –Rick Scott’s Voter Purge Powers Obama to the Lead in Florida– –

    – —Holy backfire, Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s attempt to purge the voting roles in Florida is not only wildly unpopular. It is also helping to solidify Obama’s lead in the state.

    According to Public Policy Polling, 50% of Floridians disapprove of Rick Scott’s attempt to purge votes, with only 34% approving. Believe it or not, Rick has actually gotten less popular due to his plan to suppress the vote. Scott’s disapproval rating has sunk to 31%. His disapproval rating is at 56%.

    More importantly, Scott’s scheme seems to have destroyed any momentum that Mitt Romney was gaining in the Sunshine State. Romney has been able to make up one point on Obama since April. The president has gone from a 50%-45% lead to a 50%-46% lead. While Florida registered voters are split on Obama 49%-46%, the still don’t like Romney. The Republican nominee has an upside down 39%/53% approval rating in the state.M/b>

    – — –THIS- – –>Going back to June of 2011, polling has consistently shown that Rick Scott is doing serious damage to the Republican brand in the state, while he has been helping President Obama. The June 2011 PPP poll found that Rick Scott made 40% of Florida voters less likely to vote Republican. Interestingly, the Obama/Romney spread has changed very little in a year. In 2011, Obama led Romney 47%-43%, fast forward almost a year and Obama’s lead remains at the exact same four points.

    Scott has been so unpopular that he has caused an entire police union to flip their support to the Democratic Party and hold public events urging others to join them.

    “Why shouldn’t we all just unite behind the Constitution?” he asked.

    Perry too loves to call for defending the Constitution, and his speech had an arena full of delegates swooning early, laughing at his jokes and loudly cheering his most fiery anti-Washington rhetoric. But those cheers turned to loud and sustained boos from a large chunk of the audience when the governor said, “we need more conservative Texans in Washington D.C., including my friend David Dewhurst.”

    The reaction partially drowned out Perry’s cries of “Texas works! Texas works!” as he continued his speech.

    A teacher BUILDS lives, a policeman PROTECTS lives, and a Firefighter SAVES lives. Mitt Romney RUINS lives of ordinary citizens.

    – – – –Suicide Rate In Military At Highest Level In Ten Years– –

    – – – –NATO combat operations in Afghanistan are expected to draw to a close by the middle of next year and the U.S. completed its withdrawal of troops from Iraq last December. But while fewer American soldiers are in the line of fire each day, new Pentagon statistics show that an average of one military suicide occurred each day in the first six months of 2012, the fastest pace in the past ten years.

    The statistics reported by The Associated Press show that military deaths from suicide outweighed combat deaths by a two-to-one ratio, a dramatic uptick since 2010 and 2011 when military suicides decreased from previous years. See the chart below:

    ACLU Sues Over Florida Voter Purge– –

    – – – —-The American Civil Liberties Union has sued Florida over Gov. Rick Scott’s voter-list purge.

    The purge, being run by Secretary of State Ken Detzner, is intended to keep non-citizens off the voter rolls but has improperly snagged many legitimate voters. The Justice Department says that the purge violates both the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act, but Florida officials haven’t backed down.

    – – –The ACLU suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, is on behalf of two Florida residents — Murat Limage, a Haitian-American U.S. citizen, and Pamela Gomez, a Dominican-American U.S. citizen — as well as the Mi Familia Vota Education Fund. Detzner is listed as the defendant.

    “The illegal program to purge eligible voters uses inaccurate information to remove eligible citizens from the voter rolls,” Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU’s Florida affiliate, said in a statement. “It seems that Governor Scott and his Secretary of State cannot speak without hiding what they mean in political spin. They mislead Floridians by calling their illegal list purge ‘protecting citizen’s voting rights.’”

    – — -SNIP- – –

    A recent poll by Public Policy Polling found that 50 percent of Floridians opposed the voter roll purge.

    – — –Obama Camp Goes After Romney For Comments On Cops, Firefighters, Teachers– —

    – — – –Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt pounced on remarks by Mitt Romney on Friday in which he pushed back against the president’s claim that the public sector was hurting.

    – -Romney said in Iowa that Obama “wants another stimulus, he wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.”

    – – –THIS- — –>LaBolt responded in a statement that: “As President Obama urges Congress to pass his plan to put cops, firefighters, teachers, and construction workers back to work – after they left as many as 1 million jobs from his plan on the table – Mitt Romney has decided we need less jobs for middle class Americans, not more. That’s the message he received this week.

    – – –Civil Rights Commission To Examine ‘Stand Your Ground’ Laws For Racial Bias– –

    —- –In the wake of the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights voted 5-3 on Friday to examine whether “stand your ground” laws across the country have a racial bias.

    –Commissioner Michael Yaki, a former aide to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, proposed the special investigation, saying it could answer timely questions about stand your ground legislation, which allows individuals to use force without retreating when there is a reasonable belief they are threatened. All four commissioners appointed by Democrats as well as Abigail Thernstrom, a George W. Bush appointee, voted in support of the investigation.

    Staffers of the small federal agency, created through the Civil Rights Act of 1957, will look into how racial bias “may affect the operation of these laws — in the perceptions and motivations of perpetrators, in law enforcement investigation, in prosecution decisions, and in judicial outcomes.”

    “Ultimately we need to know whether or not, all other factors being equal, the race of the victim or the perpetrator plays a role in determining the application of these laws,” Yaki said.

    – — – –Scheiber: Romney’s Claim About My Book Is ‘False’– — –

    – – – – –The author of a book documenting the White House’s policy making strategy, cited multiple times by GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, ☻says the former Massachusetts governor is using the book to dishonestly accuse President Obama of intentionally harming the economy.

    ☻“That is false, in a variety of ways. I don’t believe that it’s substantively true,” Noam Scheiber, author of The Escape Artists, told TPM by phone Thursday morning.

    On Wednesday Romney said President Obama and his aides believed the health care reform law would harm the recovery but pushed for it anyway, and sourced the argument to Scheiber’s book. ☻But the claim is not true.

    “There are a couple of claims wound up together there in Romney’s remarks,” Scheiber said. “One claim is that [Obama’s team] knew that the Affordable Care Act itself — something about the Act — would derail the recovery…. They do not believe that it’s substantively true. ☻So it’s not something that they felt, and it’s not something I argue in the book.”

    – – -☻That’s a gross oversimplification of the reality, says Scheiber.

    – — –SNIP – —-

    – – – ☻“Romney’s imputing one big claim that I just do not make and that I just do not believe to be true,” he said.
