"The transgendered community has to be protected. I just don’t have any tolerance for that sort of intolerance. And I think we need to legislate aggressively to protect them."
Barack Obama (via ambitionbird)
Did he seriously say this? I googled it, and confirmed it, but I still can’t believe it. This is amazing.
But will he do anything? (via janedoe225)

"Worst of all, this is a vision that says even though America can’t afford to invest in education or clean energy; even though we can’t afford to care for seniors and poor children, we can somehow afford more than $1 trillion in new tax breaks for the wealthy. Think about it. In the last decade, the average income of the bottom 90% of all working Americans actually declined. The top 1% saw their income rise by an average of more than a quarter of a million dollars each. And that’s who needs to pay less taxes? They want to give people like me a two hundred thousand dollar tax cut that’s paid for by asking thirty three seniors to each pay six thousand dollars more in health costs? That’s not right, and it’s not going to happen as long as I’m President."
Wow. Our president sounds like Senator Bernie Sanders.
BAM! BIFF! POW! SOCKO! And down goes the GOP!
It sounds like he realized that he’s going to have to rally the base for the election next year.
IT’S ABOUT FUCKING TIME, Mr. President.

"Nope. Zero,” the president said to the speaker. Mr. Boehner tried again. “Nope. Zero,” Mr. Obama repeated. “John, this is it.” A long silence followed, said one participant in the meeting. “It was just like an awkward, ‘O.K., well, what do you do now?’"

This makes me happy. REMEMBER WHEN THE GOP TRIED TO HOLD WOMEN’S BODIES HOSTAGE AND OUR PRESIDENT WAS LIKE NOPE?

"I believe there are too many children who need loving parents to deny one group of people adoption rights. A child will benefit from a healthy, loving home, whether the parents are gay or not."

"Our top story: Colonel Qaddafi has announced he’s traveling to Iowa to dump seawater on the nuclear reactors which were attacked by France and England in retaliation for the earthquake which polls show is the most qualified GOP candidate to take on the rebels loyal to Barack Obama, the last samurai!"
