    Wait, Obama is putting a black man in charge of the ATF? He really knows how to drive the crazy crazy. #guncontrol

    I missed the press conference, did PBO actually name who he’s nominating for ATF Director?

    • jds09

      Yep. I didn’t catch the name. I bet he’s super qualified, I can’t wait to learn more about him.

    • Aquagranny911

      I forgot the guy’s name. He has been acting directer but due to SOP Congress hasn’t confirmed the guy.

  • jds09

    This is now you do it. A community organizer in full force:

    Name the opposition
    Name their tactics
    Tell your folks now to respond and….

    Use their own words against them. Quoting Ronald Reagan…lol…

    • Aquagranny911

      PBO is brilliant! But the crazies will be out in force. We all got to stand strong.

    NBC is sponsoring the largest gun show in the country….in Las Vegas…March 2,3 rd.

    Well, THIS explains a lot….

    NBC hypocrisy as Network sponsors major Gun Show

    January 15, 2013. Las Vegas, NV. Viewers of NBC and its assortment of other media outlets might think the network was 100 percent dedicated to banning guns. From Meet the Press’ David Gregory to NBC Sports’ Bob Costas, NBC Universal has aired a constant, emotional tirade against firearms and the 2nd Amendment. But wait, NBC isn’t just a sponsor of the world’s largest gun show this week, they actually have a booth there.

    • conlakappa

      Ah, so D.C. should press charges against Gregory–he was just trying to get more customers for his employer’s event! Remember when media venues used to disclose even the hint of a conflict of interest? Yeah, neither does NBC.

    Hya, POU. I am just through with black talk radio. Here in Philly, our local am talk AA- one of the hosts guests a long-establised local journalist to announce an event this weekend to reveal the “real MLK”. This journalist dares to challenge those who call PBO the second coming of MLK on who’s more peaceful. i.e., King was against ALL wars vs. PBO. Also compared their respective Nobel prize speeches. This on the day when our President announces his efforts to stem the flow of gun violence killing our children. I swear, these black men are missing about 4 good inches if you know what I mean. They are so threatened by PBO’s achievements, IMO. How the hell can you compare MLK with the duties of a president, who has the monumental task of protecting an entire nation, and by so doing, must engage its allies in same said task? The stupid has me burnt to a crisp. I am so done with anything that touts itself as black consciousness anymore. I say prove it by taking your own ass out of the arena first. Also, this station insists on carrying the Butt Brothers on 2 occasions during each week, and the dipshit Rob Redding every night. I just can’t do this anymore and my parents had all girls, so don’t no brother call me your brother unless I see you as such. Thanks for hearing my rant, guys …LOL!

    • Miranda

      Sounds like sole patrol stoopid in full effect. I am starting to realize that a lot of these people simply use MLK as a shield to get their hate on PBO and a shield to fake out that they are actually intellectuals. They talk about Dr. King in real vague superhero ways that lead me to believe they really haven’t read the man’s speeches at all. They buy into the Hollywood version of MLK for real.Just dumb as stumps but think if they say “King stood for this” or that or the other enough times, we’ll think they have a point…they don’t.

      And Rob Redding is bout the most ignant mofo on air. He is just dumb for no reason. I know God gave him more sense than that. He ought to be ashamed to have nothing in that noggin of his except various conspiracy theories and bitchass talking points.

        THIS.

      • edp4bho

        “He is just dumb for no reason.”

        I haven’t heard that in years…LOL!

        As for MLK’s speeches, they have the real deals, oh yes, but that doesnt excuse the stupid when it comes to PBO. One is one of our greatest civil rights heroes, albeit initially reluctant to take on the task (no shade on MLK), and the other- one of our greatest presidents (if not the greatest)- self-motivated to dare to gain a seat among the status quo. Therein lies a key difference.

      “Black” radio in Philadelphia has been pathetic for a good long while. Phila has a rich history of on-point black radio. But that kind of activist radio is dead and gone. WDAS, the station that launched Ed Bradley’s career, is an embarrassment – Clearchannel owns them now. The rest aren’t far from coonery when it comes to informing the public.

      As I’ve stated before in this space, I blame a lot of this on Colin’s boy, Michael Powell, for his deregulation of broadcast media and rules on community service and engagement.

      Rant on, edp4bho, rant on! You are absolutely correct. These are some ratchet-minded “brothers” who are so lame, so intimidated, so punk-ass as to be threatened by PBO’s intellect and courage. Whiny ass titty babies, ALL of ‘em!

      • nellcote

        just to connect the dots, Bain own ClearChannel (and Ticketmaster)

        • edp4bho

          And Michael Baisden was right in saying they want to keep us uninformed but entertained. Too bad some will never realize the intent.

      • edp4bho

        Yep, Colin’s boy did it. I was referring earlier to 900 AM WURD, independent so far. Why they feel the need for false equivalency I don’t get, when the station went all out for the historical aspect of PBO’s two elections. They have a new schedule. I printed it and marked out my listening time slots. Never again can they get my full attention, nor my fund-raising dollars, as I’ve warned them already about.

        • isonprize

          Yeah, I’ve heard about them, but for some reason, I can’t get the signal. And I’m in the city… Oh well, sounds like I haven’t missed much.

    • MsKitty

      The signal for that station doesn’t carry very well into South Jersey so I rarely get to hear it, which seems like that might be a good thing. I don’t handle stupid very well when I’m driving.

      PBO will have my undying gratitude if for no other reason exposing the hustle of these clowns. That’s what this is all about.

    h/t ABL I posted her tweet. Here’s the TPM article with pic of B. Todd Jones.

    It’s not a cabinet position, but what was that about “diversity” again??

  • Aquagranny911

    I’m composing faxes for my Senators & AZ Reps. I sure know where Ron Barber stands. He was one of the 19 survivors of the Tucson shootings & a personal friend of Gabby Giffords but I will fax him anyway. Words of encouragement & support.

    • nellcote

      I heart Aquagranny’s fax machine :)
