I'm so glad Gov Dan Malloy is speaking out about this, DV.. Thank you! From your link..

“The other people are the people who want to make the rich richer and, quite frankly, if that makes the poor poorer, that is OK with them. And if you don’t point that out, don’t be shocked that people get confused

A couple a snips//

"I always felt that when we got to a serious contest in October, we would be OK as long as we stayed true to our principles and talked about what we accomplished,” he said. “Tom Foley wanted it put out that there we raised taxes. And he talked about it month after month after month after month. But once people started to pay attention, I pointed out what we did with the money, which was lower the crime rate, increase graduation rates, invest in infrastructure, create a Housing Department, create an Energy Department, create a Department of Aging. We did all of these things. It was the right policy, and ultimately people came around.”

"During the campaign, Malloy didn’t just embrace his record and his party. He did what only a few Democrats were willing to do: Embrace Barack Obama. The president headlined a rally in Bridgeport in the days before the election, at a time when other candidates, like Alison Lundergan Grimes of Kentucky, wouldn’t even cop to voting for Obama in his reelection bid."

It was so bizarre to me when this was going down in real time and now we Dan Malloy in the aftermath of his victory explaining why running as repub lites and letting the gop set the narrative was not a good idea if you really wanted to win.

It's like the Keystone thing.. the Dems who are buying into the lies propagated by the gop.. not bothering to explain what's really going on.

My Niece lives in Fairview, Connecticut.. Lucky her I say!

He voted NO.. 'cause..

" I wanna be President"

So she was pushing bullshite.. shame on her. Pres Obama on Keystone..


In some of his strongest language yet, Obama pushed back against the Republican argument that the pipeline is a “massive jobs bill for the United States.”

“Understand what this project is: It is providing the ability of Canada to pump their oil, send it through our land, down to the Gulf, where it will be sold everywhere else. It doesn't have an impact on US gas prices,” he said, growing visibly frustrated.

“If my Republican friends really want to focus on what's good for the American people in terms of job creation and lower energy costs, we should be engaging in a conversation about what are we doing to produce even more homegrown energy? I'm happy to have that conversation,” he continued.



President Barack Obama said the Keystone XL Pipeline won't create as many jobs as supporters claim as the House prepares to vote today on a bill to approve the controversial project.

During his visit to Myanmar, Obama also said the pipeline won't lead to lower energy costs for Americans. At the same time, the White House stopped short of saying the president will veto the bill that Republicans are pushing.


Thank you, Fred!

Yes, and those whining about staying home because they saw no reason to vote are

only trumpeting about how ignorant they are.

How About a Collective THANK YOU to the Senate Dems & Indies Who VOTED NO on XLKeystone?

Aloha moriah.. good question.. thank you. Sen Sanders on ACA/Obamacare today..

"Republicans Are Getting Very Nervous About Obamacare’s Success"

Sen. Bernie Sanders explained on MSNBC that Republicans are very nervous about the success of Obamacare, because the ACA proves their ideology that the government can’t help people wrong.


Senator Sanders believes Obamacare/ACA is actually helping people.. oooops.

It's going to have to blow up in their damn collective face before anything is done about the US

Despite a State of Emergency remember the #Ferguson cop is innocent until proven guilty. As opposed to, say, an unarmed guy he shot 6 times.
