I have to admit that it was kind of busy around here so I was only able to catch bits and pieces of what The President said yesterday but I did try to catch up last night on CNN’s recap. A couple of the GOP talking heads thought The President took a cheap shot at Romney for mentioning “takers.” Well, Romney and other 47% bashers brought it up first last year and all I can say is scoreboard.
Some GOPers were also not happy with The President’s liberal/progressive speech he made yesterday. Well, again scoreboard. If they think that moving forward on equality, immigration reform, voting rights, and climate change are liberal/progressive – then guess what, the U.S. of A. is liberal/progressive on these issues. It looks like those GOP leaders are out of the mainstream on these issues.
We lost Hall of Fame great skipper Earl Weaver this past weekend. Weaver guided the Orioles to 4 World Serious appearances in 1969, 1970, 1971 and 1979, winning the ring in 1970. Name the Orioles’ World Serious opponents those four years?
At least the GOP talking heads didn’t diss The First Lady’s stunning look last night. I wonder if anyone is going to diss Mana performing at one of the inaugural balls last night. It was pretty cool.
Today is the last day of Early Voting in Person in the SD6 Special. I know Serge, Tiffany and J. Dominic voted this past weekend. I wonder if Carol Alvarado’s opponent will continue to send out negative mailers this week.
Some GOP talking heads were complaining that The President didn’t reach out to them in his remarks yesterday. I don’t have a problem with that. Every time he does, he gets his hand bit by the tea baggers.
The Orioles lost to the Mets in 5 in 1969, beat the Reds in 5 in 1970, and lost to the Pirates in 7 in 1971 and 1979 of course.
The ‘Stros signed a pitcher who went 7-14 last season and had a 5.01 ERA – oh, no!
