    PBO’s remarks are great!

    WASHINGTON — Fresh off a four-day trip to Asia, President Barack Obama pardoned the National Thanksgiving Turkey Wednesday, taking a shot at his former Republican opponent and cracking jokes about his reelection.

    “They say that life is all about second chances and this November I can’t agree more,” Obama said.

    “So in the spirit of the season I have one more gift to give,” Obama joked in apparent reference to Mitt Romney’s claim after the election that Obama won by giving “gifts” to minority groups, Obama said he was going to pardon the National Thanksgiving Turkey, named Cobbler, and his stand-in, Gobbler.

    “The American people have spoken, and these birds are moving forward,” he added.

    WH to Boehner: “There ain’t no future in your frontin’”

    The White House and congressional Democrats are balking at the idea, floated by House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday, that changes to the president’s signature health care law should be on the table during lame-duck talks over taxes and the deficit.

    An administration official told The Huffington Post that the president would oppose involving the Affordable Care Act in the negotiations taking place to stave off the so-called “fiscal cliff.” A top Senate Democratic aide called the idea “absolutely” a non-starter.

    “And they know that, so its counterproductive to even offer it,” the aide add.

      Does Boehner know how bad Cantor working to stab him in the back right now? Who told Boehner to try this mess? Nobody but Cantor.

        OK! Boehner better sober up and recognize that PBO is not his enemy…Cantor is.

    CBS whines because the WH won’t give them pics of the Benghazi attacks so they can use to help the GOP continue to politicize the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and the three men who were killed.

    White House declines to release images from night of Benghazi attacks
    By Sharyl Attkisson /
    CBS News/ November 21, 2012, 11:49 AM

    The White House Photo Office has declined CBS News requests to release images taken of US officials during the Sept. 11 Benghazi attacks.

    CBS News first requested the images on Oct. 31. In the past, the White House has released photos showing US officials during national security incidents. A half dozen images related to the mission that captured and killed Osama bin Laden were given to the public last year. One depicts President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and members of the national security team gathered in the Situation Room on May 1, 2011.

    A White House official referred our request regarding the Benghazi attacks to the White House Photo Office. On Nov. 1, an official there indicated she would process our request quickly, but then did not respond further. Finally, this week, the White House Photo Office told CBS News it would not release any images without approval of Josh Earnest in the White House Press Office. Earnest did not respond to our telephone calls and emails.

    You’ll Get Pie Delivered From The Sky When The Pizza Employee Dies

    Many of you may remember way back in the summer of ’12, when the CEO of deep-fried diabetes factory Chick-fil-A came out against homo marriage (thereby conceding a shitload of wedding catering business to Arbys) and intolerant libtards were all, “We’re totally going to boycott your greasy slabs of chicken genocide which we never ate in the first place because meat is murder”. This, in turn, enraged conservative Christians and Fox TV viewers causing those who were ambulatory or whose hoverounds had fully charged batteries to stage a Chick-fil-A gorge-in where they all showed up on one special day to shovel massive mounds of artery-clogging fried foods into their gaping maws to show the world that they would rather die than have something gay shoved down their throats. The end result was a massive turnout causing gay homosexuals to became as scarce as GOP Senators who have served in the military, by which I mean John McCain, or if you want both: Lindsey Graham.

    But wait, there’s more…

    During the run-up to President Gift Giving African’s latest stolen election, chemical face-peel victim and CEO of Papa John’s Pizza, the very Italian sounding John Schnatter, said that he hate-hate-hated Obamacare, and that the idea of having to provide healthcare benefits to his stupid employees made him sicker than most of his employees, particularly the ones who supply him with one of Papa John’s freshest ingredients (hint: it’s mucus, such as found on the popular Papa John’s Linguiça & Lunger Deep Petri Dish Artisanal Pizza). Schnatter said he would have to raise the price of his pizzas a whole 14 cents because of the socialism, although actually it’s only about five cents, but that doesn’t make it any less communist. Also Schnatter said he would cut his employees hours so they wouldn’t qualify for benefits but mainly because he is a dick. Now liberals are once again threatening a boycott and conservatives are once again coming to the rescue with #IStandWithPapaJohn’s day which happens to be this Friday following Thanksgiving, which makes perfect sense because it is the one day when all of America stands there looking in the refrigerator saying, to no one in particular, “There’s nothing to eat”.

    Read more here: http://tbogg.firedoglake.com/2012/11/20/youll-get-pie-delivered-from-the-sky-when-the-pizza-employee-dies/

    The comments are hilarious.

    • nellcote

      tbogg is a worthy read @ firedoglake. He frequently goes up against the emoprogs on the rest of the site. This is a classic:

      “Let me see if I can explain it this way:

      Every year in Happy Gumdrop Fairy-Tale Land all of the sprites and elves and woodland creatures gather together to pick the Rainbow Sunshine Queen. Everyone is there: the Lollipop Guild, the Star-Twinkle Toddlers, the Sparkly Unicorns, the Cookie Baking Apple-cheeked Grandmothers, the Fluffy Bunny Bund, the Rumbly-Tumbly Pupperoos, the Snowflake Princesses, the Baby Duckies All-In-A-Row, the Laughing Babies, and the Dykes on Bikes. They have a big picnic with cupcakes and gumdrops and pudding pops, stopping only to cast their votes by throwing Magic Wishing Rocks into the Well of Laughter, Comity, and Good Intentions. Afterward they spend the rest of the night dancing and singing and waving glow sticks until dawn when they tumble sleepy-eyed into beds made of the purest and whitest goose down where they dream of angels and clouds of spun sugar.

      You don’t live there.

      Grow the fuck up.”

    The Egyptian foreign minister announced the a ceasefire agreement hours before it took hold at 19:00 GMT on Wednesday.

    Mohamed Kamel Amr thanked all parties involved in brokering the truce as he made the announcement in a joint news conference with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

    Under the ceasefire terms, Israel was to stop all aggression against the Gaza Strip from land, sea and air, including cross-border incursions and targeted killings.

    Palestinian factions were to cease all aggression from Gaza towards Israel, including rocket fire and attacks on the border.

    Twenty-four hours after the ceasefire takes effect, Israel will also be committed to opening of all border crossings and ease restrictions on movements of people and goods in and out of the enclave.

    I want to post a correction on this thread for a comment I made regarding the vacant IL 2nd Congressional District seat. I have also posted a correction at the bottom of the original comment.

    Correction: the IL governor does not appoint a replacement for a vacant US Rep seat. The position remains vacant until someone wins in a special election.

    The fiscal choke

    On “The Last Word” last night, guest host Ezra Klein was entering a euphoric state of optimism within a rapture of jubilation atop clouds nine, ten and eleven as he rattled off, from a NY Times story, the names of several Republican lawmakers–Peter King, Saxby Chambliss, Tom Coburn, John McCain, Lindsey Graham–who are defying Grover Mephistopheles’s demands and going, or so it seems, all Faustian with the Dems.

    Guest Robert Reich responded: I’ll believe it when I see it.

    I’m with Reich on this one.

    Dark and contemptible as he is, Mephistopheles is at least a man of his final word. Contemporary Republicans, on the other hand, shift and slither as they say one seemingly conclusive thing but mean another, or another when they mean one. Sen. Graham, for instance, “said that … closing tax loopholes and eliminating deductions have to be considered, ‘even though that may technically violate the pledge.’” This sounds GOP-unorthodox; real renegade stuff, right? Not really. It still rejects the single most prominent position on which President Obama won decisive reelection: a hike in the top marginal tax rate. And keep in mind–as Lindsey surely does–that the SC senator is looking at being tea-party primaried in 2014. Courage has its pragmatic limits.

    The pros and the pros of a Rice nomination

    Time magazine’s Jay Newton-Small itemizes the pros and cons of President Obama’s nominating choice of Susan Rice, now that “White House officials are whispering to the New York Times and other news outlets that Rice is currently Obama’s favorite to fill the top cabinet slot” of secretary of state.

    The “pro” items are unexceptional, including Rice’s youthful zeal, Obama’s admiration for her, her popularity among Democrats and her political kryptonite qualities for sane (yeah, I know) Republicans.

    Among the cons of Rice-as-nominee: Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham have already embarrassed themselves with extravagantly goofy filibuster threats; more than one GOP House committee is planning on making McCain-Graham-like asses of themselves with HUAC-like hearings on Benghazi; Rice might be “too blunt” for the job; and, “as Obama noted in his press conference, the people re-elected him to work with the other side, not get mired in partisan fights,” which would delight political junkies like us to absolutely no end.

    Wait, those are the cons?

    The so called liberal media cable channel, MSNBC is going to do something about that image.
    Did I miss all of this pro Obama coverage?
    There is no liberal media.
    MSNBC Looks To Battle Pro-Obama Reputation During Second Term
    Over at the Huffington Post, media reporter Michael Calderone reports that MSNBC President Phil Griffin seeks to combat the network’s growing reputation as not just being “progressive,” but being openly “pro-Obama.”

    Many believe the network’s “pro-Obama” reputation has, thus far, been warranted: A recent Pew study found that during the final week of the 2012 election campaign, MSNBC ran zero negative stories about President Obama; and not a single positive story about Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

    • jds09

      Let’s see what happens to their ratings. It won’t end well for MSNBC.

    • Miranda

      I would like to know exactly what constitutes a “negative” or “positive” story. If the content is factual, its not a news networks obligation to do a fluff piece on how Romney once gave milk to a shelter 20 years ago for a full 10 minute segment just because the network ran a segment on how he stood up at a banquet and insulted half the electorate 6 months ago.Faux News runs stories on PBO that are patently false in content but somehow there is a comparison with a completely truthful segment on Romney on MSNBC just because the truth is that Romney is an ass?

    • Kennymack1971

      This is some old work the refs bullshit. This is an attempt to turn MSNBC into a network more like CNN which gives credence to the ‘both sides’ talking points. If they do it their ratings will tank too.

    • GN

      If they’d like to see their ratings in the toilet, be my guest. I’d actually be pleased if they openly took a FoxLite, “fair and balanced” turn. So long as the Rev Al’s show is intact, I could care less.

    GOP Senators Attack Obama, Praise Egyptian President In Statement On Gaza CeasefireSecretary of State Hillary Clinton and Egyptian Prime Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr today announced a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, ending eight days of violence that resulted in nearly 150 dead and more wounded. President Obama dispatched Clinton to the region yesterday and the nation’s top diplomat traveled to Jerusalem and Cairo today to help facilitate the deal.

    But in a statement on the Gaza ceasefire today, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) — one day after intelligence officials debunked their attacks on the Obama administration over Benghazi — didn’t have any kind words for the president and his team. In fact, the new “Three Amigos” attacked Obama, saying there needs to be “smarter American leadership” in the Middle East.

    Yet the three Republicans did have praise for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi: more here: http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/11/21/1230351/gop-senators-attack-obama-praise-egyptian-president-gaza/?mobile=nc

    Hey POU,
    Before we all disappear into food and family, I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, Turkey Day or whatever you wish to call it.

    CC, my “crack” at you on Canadian Thanksgiving Day was not to throw shit in the game or down you at all. I value and respect your opinions. I don’t think you’re a crazy canuck at all. GLH and others brought me back to being thankful for whats important to us all. It was merely a thought to us all to remember how this day we celebrate came to be, our place in it and to challenge ourselves going forward.

    Now, I await serious (over)eating. (You’ll like this) Watching the Dallas (“America’s Team, State that wants to Secede, etc.) Cowboys play the Washington (U.S. Capital, Home of Black Heisman winning QB, etc.) Redskins. Cowboys v. Redskins.

      Wonder where are they going with this alleged post election ‘self-assessment’? Simultaneously, as Pew’s post-mortem reads ‘Not so Hot Coverage of Obama in 2012′ over at Huffo MSNBC is trying to shake its ”Pro-Obama’ Label’ and promises to do better next term.

      Pew and HuffPo post election assessments fails to weigh MediaMatters’ extensive coverage on GOP/Robme’s “paid” embed advisors posing as reporters or political analysts across the full spectrum of media in 2012.

      And, in the midst of all this self-inspection how the heck did they miss reports of messaging guru, political analyst and Republican strategist, Frank Luntz’s, joining NBC and MSNBC’s sudden need to become “less” Pro-Obama?

    OK, my sister just had me watch the last 15 minutes of Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Special…LMAO…this is some version I haven’t seen! A truly white-washing of history with this one! Damn…..this was about as historically accurate as The Great Pumpkin is real! LOLOL

    • GN

      Seriously; Charlie Brown is the absolute business but historical accuracy that cartoon is NOT.

      • Miranda

        I don’t ever remember seeing that version at the end of how “Thanksgiving” came to be…LOL, maybe I just haven’t watched this one in a long time or something.

    • rikyrah

      I thought it was hysterical…and oh, so Charlie Brown-ish

    • QOakaJP

      I was never a big fan of their Thanksgiving or Easter specials. It’s all about The Great Pumpkin and A Charlie Brown Christmas. =)

    Thanksgiving with the Obama familyPresident Obama pardoned one turkey on Wednesday morning, but other birds weren’t so lucky. Later that day, the president and his wife Michelle, daughters Malia and Sasha, and mother-in-law Marian Robinson helped serve an early Thanksgiving dinner at the Capitol Area Food Bank in Washington, D.C. Members of the Oregon State men’s basketball team joined the Obamas at the food bank. Michelle’s brother, Craig Robinson, is the team’s coach.more here: http://tv.msnbc.com/2012/11/21/thanksgiving-with-the-obama-family/

    Dems win all of the final races – if it hadn’t been for all of the re-drawn districts, Pelosi would be the Speaker again.http://www.presstv.ir/usdetail/273405.html

    This is a very good question. I have a friend who is an Indian jew, she doesn’t have very nice things to say about Isreals treatment of black jews.

    Have a Great Thanksgiving Everyone!

    Cute video (the one w/the prez, that is). Meanwhile, this dude:

    @chrislhayes
    It’s obvs a harmless, trivial thing, but can’t shake the feeling that there’s something creepy about the turkey pardon that won’t age well

    (._. )

    After 50 yrs, *now* people are demanding the end of the turkey pardon. Silly? Yes. “Creepy?” I don’t see it.

    • crazycanuck

      It’s suddenly ‘creepy’ because this President is continuing the tradition.

    • rikyrah

      do I have to say it…

      never saw this kind of concern for the turkey when a WHITE MAN was President.

      • MsKitty

        These folks are well and truly becoming parodies of themselves.

    - – -How The Worst Drought In Half A Century Is Causing Millions To Go Hungry- –

    - – - -More than 17 million of America’s food insecure households could go hungry this Thanksgiving, and they might have a harder time finding a warm meal, as food banks that distribute to food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters rely on ever thinning supplies.

    The shortage is a result of a severe, lingering drought that has depleted midwest crops, sending prices higher for food staples like meat, vegetables, and fruit. According to Reuters, the higher food prices have meant the U.S. government buys fewer commodities, purchases originally intended to support agriculture prices and reduce surpluses. The unintended result means government donations to food banks, a major source of their inventory, have fallen by more than half:

    Government commodity purchases through The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) fell by more than half to $352.5 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, from $723.7 million three years earlier, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. [...]

    This is just the beginning.
    Extreme weather events, coupled with conservatives chanting less spending, will erode resources to the needy further than even imagined.
    When fresh water fetches a premium price, which is inevitable, we could see drastic changes in human behavior and government rationing.
    I agree totally with Seth…stop the wars and feed the poor!
