    Afternoon, POU Fam!

    I hope all is well. I keep forgetting how handsome President Obama is… probably because I don’t look at him like that. These pictures remind that he really is a very handsome man.

    I can almost hear FLOTUS saying to him “babe, glad you’re having a good trip. Make sure you bring that shirt home so you can model it just for me”.

    Inside the ‘Romney Readiness Project,’ the ambitious plans for an unrealized administration

    excerpt:
    Insiders describe a well-prepared transition that was ready to hit the ground running on Nov. 7, and begin the work of fashioning a Romney government.
    Leavitt was in Boston on Election Day, prepared to brief Romney if the GOP nominee proved victorious.

    “We built a great ship, and regrettably, in my view, we didn’t sail. I think it would have been a crisp transition,” Leavitt said in an interview with NBC News. “I got up every morning from the day he asked me to do this — not naively — assuming that we would be elected, and we needed to be prepared.”
    The extensive and well-prepared operation resembled the inner workings of Bain Capital, the venture capital firm founded by Romney, according to multiple sources associated with the transition, who asked not to be identified to more candidly discuss the process.

    “In many ways, it felt like the West Wing,” one transition official said in praise of the professional environment.

    I really hope the various immigration activists are not gullible enough to fall for this:

    Romney supporters form immigration super PAC

    4:36PM EST November 19. 2012 – Here’s another sign that some Republicans are serious about reaching out to Hispanics and getting a deal on immigration.

    Carlos Gutierrez, former Commerce secretary for President George W. Bush, is forming Republicans for Immigration Reform, a new super PAC. He’s being joined in the effort by Charlie Spies, the treasurer of Restore Our Future, the primary super PAC that backed Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.

    The programs— including those focused on at-risk kids— use music, dance, poetry, debate, theater and other outlets to inspire creative development among young people.

    The first lady said at a White House ceremony that the programs teach kids skills such as teamwork and self-expression that are also critical in the classroom and workplace.

    Mrs. Obama thanked educators, leaders and performers for, quote, “pushing and inspiring our kids” and “teaching them to believe in themselves.”

    Dannie! Krispy Kreme is doing your boo wrong, girl!

    Could governor’s race explain apparent chill between Booker, Christie?

    …At any rate, Christie held a news conference in Newark on Friday to boast about the city’s new teachers contract — a big win for the reform movement — and he had high praise for Democrats from one end of the state to the other.

    Yet two people involved in the news conference said that, at first, Booker wasn’t even invited. And while a half-dozen union and education leaders flanked the governor and took turns at the microphone, Booker was not among them. The Newark mayor sat silently in the front row.

    …While Booker has no legal authority over Newark schools, he has been one of the driving forces of reform in the state’s biggest school district. He secured a $100 million donation from Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, and introduced him to Christie. Since then, he has raised an additional $50 million.

    – -Massachusetts Will Offer In-State Tuition To DREAMers With Work Permits – – –

    – – -The state of Massachusetts will soon allow undocumented immigrants protected under the President’s deferred action program to pay in-state tuition at public universities.

    Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (D) will direct the Board of Higher Education to grant in-state rates to any student who has obtained a work permit, a state official told the Boston Globe over the weekend. This applies to undocumented students who were given relief from the fear of deportation earlier this year, when the President announced a deferred action program to help such young people gain the right to work.

    Patrick’s directive will take effect immediately, and will drastically lower the cost of higher education for young immigrant students:

    Patrick’s announcement dramatically slashes the cost of a college education for immigrants who until now had to pay out-of-state rates.

    For example, the flagship University of Massachusetts Amherst costs $26,645 this year for nonresidents, compared with $13,230 for residents, while Bunker Hill Community College costs $5,640 this year for residents, compared with $13,880 for nonresidents. And Framingham State costs $8,080 for residents this year, compared with $14,160 for nonresidents.

    Just Wonderin’

    For the past few days, I can’t help but wonder how Romney/GOP supporters have justified their support and votes to the people in their lives. How did you explain to your daughters that you voted for the party that wants to curtail their rights, and thinks that a pregnancy resulting from “legitimate rape” is a blessing from God?[....]

    What did you tell your relatives – especially those living on the social security they earned, and those presently serving in the military – to justify having voted for a candidate who dismissed them as being part of the 47% who are parasites looking for a government handout, unwilling to accept responsibility for their own lives?

    How did you explain to your children, who you have taught to tell the truth at all times, that you voted for the candidate who had lied consistently throughout his campaign?[....] What excuse did you offer to your hard-working, middle-class acquaintances for having voted for the candidate who refused to reveal his tax returns, and has parked his millions in offshore accounts so as to evade paying any taxes at all?

    How did you explain to your community that you stood in support of a party that is clearly not interested in their welfare if they are not of the “right” race, ethnicity, or religion?[....]

    Suck on this rethugs:Official: Changes to Benghazi talking points made by intel community
    By Pam Benson

    The intelligence community – not the White House, State Department or Justice Department – was responsible for the substantive changes made to the talking points distributed for government officials who spoke publicly about the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, the spokesman for the director of national intelligence said Monday.

    The unclassified talking points on Libya, developed several days after the the deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, were not substantively changed by any agency outside of the intelligence community, according to the spokesman, Shawn Turner.more here: http://security.blogs.cnn.com/2012/11/19/official-changes-to-benghazi-talking-points-made-by-intel-community/

      First, they were saying PBO needed to watch West Wing re-runs to learn how to govern. Now, he needs to watch Lincoln? Just goes to show you that these pundunces just want to be entertained.

    Conservative Republicans fight back after Romney loss

    After nearly two weeks of listening to GOP officials pledge to assert greater control over the party and its most strident voices in the wake of Romney’s loss, grass-roots activists have begun to fight back, saying that they are not to blame for the party’s losses in November.

    “The moderates have had their candidate in 2008 and they had their candidate in 2012. And they got crushed in both elections. Now they tell us we have to keep moderating. If we do that, will we win?” said Bob Vander Plaats, president of the Family Leader, a Christian group that opposed Romney during the Iowa caucuses 10 months ago.

    The dispute began to take shape soon after Obama was declared the winner and Republicans, who had hoped to claim the Senate majority, lost two seats.

    – –Walmart Whines To NLRB About Worker Actions. Boo Hoo! — –

    – – -I was watching network news (ABC) last night, and they were talking about how the Black Friday sales were going to start Thursday night, and the reporter was gushing about all the great deals. Not one single word about the Walmart strike. After all, that’s another world to those people!
    – — -SNIP —-

    As Wal-Mart workers prepare to stage a walkout on Black Friday, the world’s largest store is fighting back.

    Wal-Mart (WMT, Fortune 500) has filed a complaint with a federal agency accusing one of the largest labor unions in the country of unlawfully organizing picket lines, in-store “flash mobs” and other demonstrations in the past six months.

    In its complaint Thursday, Wal-Mart said the United Food and Commercial Workers Union and its subsidiary known as OURWalmart is trying to force the store into collective bargaining even though it is not the official union for Wal-Mart’s employees. The UFCW represents over a million meat packers and food industry workers.

    The complaint comes just days before Wal-Mart workers’ plan to stage nationwide walkouts on Black Friday, arguably the biggest holiday shopping day for any U.S. store. Union-backed groups OUR Walmart and Making Change at Wal-Mart, along with a watchdog group Corporate Action Network are calling on the country’s largest employer to end what they call retaliation against employees who speak out for better pay, fair schedules and affordable health care.
    – – – -SNIP – —

    In a letter to UFCW’s general council sent on Friday, Wal-Mart said the workers’ ongoing actions violate the National Labor Relations Act, which prohibits picketing for any period over 30 days without filing a representation petition. The retailer said the actions have disrupted business.

    – – -Hobby Lobby Must Cover Contraception For Employees, Judge Rules – —

    – — – -A federal judge ruled Monday night that the Hobby Lobby craft store chain must offer its 13,000 employees contraceptive coverage without a co-pay, as mandated by Obamacare.

    Hobby Lobby sued to deny such coverage in September, citing conservative evangelical owner David Green’s personal religious objections to certain types of birth control that fall under Obamacare’s contraception mandate. In particular, the company sought to deny its employees coverage for the morning after pill, commonly known as Plan B.

    But on Monday night, U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton denied the request in a 28-page ruling, pointing out that religious institutions have already been given exemptions from covering contraception, and that Hobby Lobby does not qualify since it is a private business:

    “However, Hobby Lobby and Mardel [its partner company] are not religious organizations,” the ruling states. “Plaintiffs have not cited, and the court has not found, any case concluding that secular, for-profit corporations such as Hobby Lobby and Mardel have a constitutional right to the free exercise of religion.”
