  • David Dayden and the rest of the Netroots bunch are really smelling themselves. Sorry for the HuffPo link:

    Schneiderman appeared before a generally sympathetic crowd at the annual Netroots Nation conference in Providence, R.I., on Thursday and pledged to hold banks “accountable.” But organizers for a panel on foreclosure fraud told HuffPost that Schneiderman’s office declined an invitation to participate in the panel.

    The panel, which was held on Friday, was generally critical of Schneiderman, portraying him as a public official who had betrayed the trust of troubled homeowners who believed he would fight on their behalf. The panelists and members of the audience criticized the attorney general and the Obama administration for making public statements about holding banks accountable and helping homeowners, while programs designed to deliver aid to borrowers have met problems and bank malpractice continues.

    The panel was organized by FireDogLake blogger David Dayen, and featured former TARP official Barofsky, white-collar crime attorney Lynn Szymoniak and Masschusetts foreclosure activist Malcolm Chu. Dayen told HuffPost that he extended the invitation to participate directly to Schneiderman’s chief of staff, Neal Kwatra.

    But when HuffPost asked Kwatra about the invitation, he denied that one had been extended.

    “There was no invitation to any panel,” Kwatra told HuffPost. “Nobody spoke to me — 100 percent not at all.”

  • Van Jones has become a huge disappointment.

    Van Jones: National Democrats Didn’t Do Enough In Wisconsin Recall

    David Taintor June 10, 2012, 9:32 AM 1259

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. — National Democrats didn’t do enough to help in the recall fight against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, says former White House “green jobs czar” Van Jones.

    “To the extent this fight is considered a life-or-death fight for the labor movement, and is now being considered a big signal of poor health for the progressive cause, you did not see a commensurate level of engagement and participation from national Democrats in that fight,” Jones said in an interview with TPM at the Netroots Nation conference. “I’m seeing a lot more energy mourning the loss than I saw energy securing the win.”

    MORE: http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/06/van-jones-wisconsin-recall-netroots-nation.php

    • GN

      Almost all of the post-mortems which I’ve read have simply said that Dems failed to close the deal re: convincing voters that Walker’s misdeeds were serious enough to merit recall, as voters sided with the argument that only the most serious offenses should merit a recall. The netroots continues to misdirect emotion and energy, as they’ve been doing for years at this point.

      • Camille

        “The netroots continues to misdirect emotion and energy, as they’ve been doing for years at this point.”

        Exactly. They end up only amplifying the angst and false memes set by the Republicans and stepping all over the message they ought to channeling.

        They are not our friends and are certainly not on our side. It’s time to sever whatever ties exist with these saboteurs.

    • Kennymack1971

      And as it was asked on Twitter where was Van Jones when the recall was going on? Van Jones is full of shit. Too busy being the Netroots favorite negro. Pitiful.

      • AxelFoley

        Good point. I ain’t see nor hear hide nor hair of this fool during the whole recall effort. Hell, last I heard from this nikka was when the Occupy people told him to go fuck himself.

    • goldenstar

      Who is paying Van Jones or whose bidding is he doing? I don’t understand what motivates his commentary.

    • Miranda

      I can’t stand these fools.


      All Scott Walker won was the right to do obligatory ribbon cuttings and have his name on the congratulations letter to Wisconsinites that turn 100. Why can’t this felonious kneegrow tout THAT?? Why can’t any of these whining bitchass fauxgressives point that out? That should have been the drumbeat but nooooooooooooo, these fools allowed the rethuglicans and their media minions to completely run with the “Scott Walker and his Mighty Triumph over Olympus” meme all damn week.

      • GN

        Because they prefer misery to celebrating accomplishments such as the WI state senate turnover. Dem politicians need to tread extremely carefully with the nutroots.

        • Camille

          I wish they would just ignore them. Running to this crapfest pilgrimage only elevates them where they might have otherwise died a slow and miserable death.

      • Because if Van told the truth, his hustle would end. C.R.E.A.M is real.

        • annvic

          Lol, he learned his lesson the last time he fucked up and told the truth to the profession left. It’s too real in the field and Chicken Van wants back in the big house, damn it.

        • AxelFoley

          Sho’ nuff. That’s what it’s all about–that scrilla. That’s why Jones, West and Smiley and nem hate PBO–he’s done exposed their hustle.

          Fools like them want the black community to rely on them. To see them as the leaders of the community, but without actually gettin’ shit done.

      I won’t be surprised if he lands at Current t.v. with puny Chris Hayes soon to follow.

      Al Gore is playing a very dirty but dangerous game with his very dubious line-up at Current.

      He wants to play king maker while stifling criticism of his own less than stellar offerings as V.P, Presidential candidate and since as a poor and largely invisible elder statesman of the Democratic party. A role he has pretty much never embraced or played. He too is probably now conveniently just an independent as his mediocre network fake hosts want to spin.

      Just like the spin of MSNBC as some “liberal” network, neither is Current t.v.

      It has exactly one true and consistent liberal: Stephanie Miller.

      The rest are just self-serving racist assholes with anti-President Obama agendas and a plan to propel themselves into relevance or like in the case of Gavin Newsom, to national office.

      But in the end, they will find out the hard way that we are very much wide awake and onto their pathetic games. They ain’t going no where fast.

    Growth in Latino population not fully reflected at voting booth
    Democrats work to increase participation in a group that leans toward Obama

    DENVER — The nation’s rapidly growing Latino population is one of the most powerful forces working in President Obama’s favor in many of the states that will determine his contest with Mitt Romney. But Latinos are not registering or voting in numbers that fully reflect their potential strength, leaving Hispanic leaders frustrated and Democrats worried as they increase efforts to rally Latino support.

    Interviews with Latino voters across the country suggested a range of reasons for what has become, over a decade, an entrenched pattern of nonparticipation, ranging from a distrust of government to a fear of what many see as an intimidating effort by law enforcement and political leaders to crack down on immigrants, legal or not.

    • conlakappa

      Saw this in today’s paper and it read off to me. Like a preemptive strike on calling fraud when the latino numbers go up. Or just trying to make Mittens feel better in that it isn’t another group who doesn’t like him but just doesn’t do the voting thing.

    Study: Racism Could Cost Obama 3-5% Of Votes In Election

    Racist attitudes could hurt President Obama’s re-election by 3-5%, according to a study.

    Seth Stephens-Davidowitz examined Google searches to find the media markets where the racial epithet “nigger” was most often used. He found that in those markets Obama underperformed previous Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry, even though Obama got much more votes in 2008.

  • But many of the residents of this exclusive tract in La Jolla say they are rankled by what they see from their decks and patios as the Romneys’ blindness to their impact on the neighborhood. And personal politics is fueling their frustration as much as anything else, several days of interviews with about a dozen residents suggest.

    It turns out that Mr. Romney — who has likened President Obama’s policies to socialism, called for cutting back on federal funding to PBS and wants to outlaw same-sex marriage — has moved into a neighborhood that evokes “Modern Family” far more than “All in the Family.” (There are six gay households within a three-block radius of his house, neighbors said.)

    Four doors up the street from the Romneys is the home of Randy Clark and Tom Maddox, a gay couple who meet regularly with other residents worried by the candidate’s renovation plans.

    The men, who married in San Francisco four years ago, were asked by Mr. Romney’s architect to sign a document that stated they have no objections to his planned renovations, which would obscure a portion of their ocean view. They refused.

    Romney’s Creepy Fake Cop Act Extends To Staffers

    I’m still sort of amazed that this story about Mitt Romney’s creepy and weird cop impersonation hasn’t gotten more traction. Conservatives whip up a frenzy to the point of Hannity running a series on “The Vetting of Barack Obama” over stupid things like a speech in college, or those nefarious missing transcripts or the insane and ongoing birther controversy, but if a Republican candidate impersonates a cop, and goes so far as to use that phony authority to frighten and abandon a couple of girls on the side of the road, then…crickets.

    Unlike so much of the conservative manufactured fauxtrage, Romney’s penchant for impersonating cops has implications that shouldn’t be ignored, because they point to an authoritarian world view that would permeate how he approaches the office of President.

    Lest you think otherwise, here is a story of some other cop impersonators who just happened to be Romney staffers. Joe Conason:

    Newspaper as Business Pulpit

    There is a growing worry that the falling value and failing business models of many American newspapers could lead to a situation where moneyed interests buy papers and use them to prosecute a political and commercial agenda.

    That future appears to have arrived in San Diego, where The U-T San Diego, the daily newspaper bought by the local developer and hotelier Douglas F. Manchester, often seems like a brochure for his various interests.

    Mr. Manchester is anti-big government, anti-tax and anti-gay marriage. And he’s in favor of a remade San Diego centered around a new downtown waterfront stadium and arena.

    Virginia’s legislature commissioned a $50,000 study to determine the impacts of climate change on the state’s shores. To greenlight the project, they omitted words like “climate change” and “sea level rise” from the study’s description itself. According to the House of Delegates sponsor of the study, these are “liberal code words,” even though they are noncontroversial in the climate science community.

Martin O’Malley (D) rightly explained that when President Obama said the private sector was “doing fine,” he was trying to point out that by comparison, the public sector was doing way worse. The private vs. public employment record seems obvious to those who don’t want to see Willard Romney in the White House.

    – – – – –RA’ – -CHERE – ->Of course, then-Governor Romney’s record was nothing to crow about, but it’s way more important for the media to pounce on an out-of-context comment by the president.

    AFL-CIO head Richard Trumka in response to these comments by Willard:

    “Mitt Romney says he wants fewer teachers; that means larger classrooms. He says he wants fewer firefighters; that means less safety. Rich people will still have good protection… He wants fewer police officers; that means we’re in danger.”


    – – –SKIP – – –

    – —“Last year more jobs were created in the private sector of our country’s economy than in all eight years of President Bush, and that was true in 2010. So I think that President Obama absolutely needs to take away the false assertions of Mitt Romney that he created jobs either in the private sector or in Massachusetts.” – – – –

    – – –49 Years After Kennedy Signed The Equal Pay Act, Women Still Earn 77 Cents To A Man’s Dollar – —

    – – —On June 10 1963 — exactly 49 years ago today — President John Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act to prohibit wage discrimination against women. From his remarks that day:

    This act represents many years of effort by labor, management, and several private organizations unassociated with labor or management, to call attention to the unconscionable practice of paying female employees less wages than male employees for the same job.

    – – -SNIP—

    – – Exactly 49 years later, women still earn just 77 cents for every dollar earned by a man. Over a lifetime, the pay gap adds up to more than $430,000 in lost wages for an individual on women.

    – – –THIS – ->Last week, Senate Republicans blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act — legislation that would have cracked down on wage discrimination and closed the wage gap.— –

    – – —John Orozco wins gymnastics title – —

    – – – –The meet was over. Done. Danell Leyva had flown too high, scored too well, avoided too many mistakes for John Orozco to track him down.

    Heck, even Orozco thought so.

    When Orozco ended his floor exercise routine during the final event of the U.S. men’s gymnastics championships on Saturday, the calculator in his head told him he hadn’t done enough to catch his front-running, ceiling-scraping teammate.

    – –“I was thinking to myself, ‘I don’t think that will do it,'” Orozco said.

    Then the scoreboard flashed: 15.500. Somewhere in the crowd Orozco’s mother Damaris shrieked. The soft-spoken 19-year-old from the Bronx — nicknamed “Silent Ninja” by his friends because of his ability to sneak up on the competition — had done it again.

    The best floor score Orozco can ever remember seeing next to his name propelled him to a two-round total of 184.850 and a national title, barely ahead of Leyva’s 184.800.

    “He doesn’t know how to lose,” said two-time U.S. champion Jonathan Horton, who finished fourth. “He doesn’t have a weakness. He’s just a phenomenal gymnast. The one thing is, he gets in a zone and you can’t break it.”

    – –Earl Ofari Hutchinson: Even Obama’s Dog’s draws Racial Fire– – –

    – – –The racial pillorying of First Lady Michelle Obama was bad enough. The occasional snide digs and ugly depictions of the Obama’s daughters were even more despicable. But now the presidential family’s pet Portuguese Water Dog, Bo has taken heat. A Brown University social scientist used polling experiments and an independent survey to identify a series of issues that have been bitter and contentious between Obama and the GOP and that are seemingly race neutral such as tax policy, health care reform, Supreme Court appointments, and political party identification.

    He found that those with a racial antipathy toward blacks were more prone to oppose anything that Obama supported. That racial antipathy even extended to his dog. To test this, the Brown researcher showed a picture of the Obama’s dog to one half of the test group. He showed the same picture to the other half but told them that it was a picture of the late Senator Ted Kennedy’s pet Portuguese Water Dog, Splash. Those hostile to Obama were much more likely to express disdain toward Obama’s dog than that of Kennedy’s presumed pet.

    – –SNIP- — –

    – – –The Brown University survey simply reconfirmed the horrid fact that President Obama’s public policy stances and battles have been relentlessly clouded, obstructed and opposed by subtle and overt racial perceptions and animus. It’s no surprise then that the Obama’s family dog has drawn racial fire too.

    Yes. The story will be set in modern-day New York and will feature music totally headed by Hip Hop mogul, Jay Z. This project is right up the rapper’s alley, being that he remastered the old “Annie” classic in “Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem).” – – –

    – — –Reliable Sources: David Shuster Pwns Jennifer Rubin, Politico, and Conservative Whiners – – –

    – – – —This segment is entitled “The Media vs. Mitt” on CNN’s website. Evidently there’s some whining (when is there NOT whining?) in conservative quarters that Mittens isn’t getting a fair shake by the media. Never mind that Pew found that President Obama had received far less positive coverage than negative during the first four months of the year, and followed that up with another study more recently affirming that at no time has President Obama received more favorable coverage than Mitt Romney.

    – – -Never mind all of that, because Politico has now weighed in with their “concerns,” which involve the number of stories about Mitt’s mendacity, meanness, and other character flaws—things Ari Fleischer thinks are “personal” and which Jennifer Rubin thinks are “shiny things.”

    Of course, right about the time Rubin refers to them as shiny things, she’s off to the races listing the number of media “vetting failures” there were over President Obama’s drug use as a college student.

    THIS- – –>Shuster is great at debunking their manufactured poutrage, calling it “just more Republican BS,” which is a great characterization to use on a cable news channel that actually thinks it’s a good idea to employ Dana Loesch and Erick Erickson as commentators.

    – — –Obama’s report card on education policy – —

    – – —President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign boasts in a recent TV spot that his national education policy borrows from his personal academic success: It can be chalked up to hard work and student aid.

    Even conservatives can’t find too much fault with the administration’s education record. “President Obama has been much more reform-minded than any Democratic president before him. He really has co-opted the Republicans on many of their key education positions,” said Michael Petrilli, executive vice president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, an educational think tank, and a research fellow at Stanford University’s conservative Hoover Institution.

    Since taking office more than three years ago, Obama has prioritized education, pushing elementary and secondary education reform, helping states avoid George W. Bush-era school mandates and expanding federal financial aid for college students.

    – –He also funneled $100 billion to the states in the 2009 stimulus and has been slowly increasing Education Secretary Arne Duncan’s discretionary budget — efforts that have reaped bipartisan support, appealed to young voters and promoted his personal story.

    The Obama camp gives the president high marks. Education is “definitely an area where we feel like the president has made a great deal of progress and it’s something he’s very proud of,” said James Kvaal, the Obama campaign policy director who formerly worked on higher education policy in Duncan’s department and for the National Economic Council.

    Here’s a rundown of Obama’s educational initiatives and how they’re ranked by education experts:

    Whoever wins will only stay in office for six months. Then they start right in again running for re-election. In the fall, districts will be slightly different, leaning more Democratic, but it will still be close.

    No matter what happens, it’s so good to see Gabby out there again:

    Tucson, Arizona (CNN) — Former Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords made a rare appearance before a cheering crowd of supporters at a “Get out the vote” concert in downtown Tucson.

    Giffords was joined by her husband, Mark Kelly, at the Saturday event for a special election race for the seat from which she resigned.
