    ‘Protected by God’: Colo. Shooting Victim Survives Bullet Through the Brain After Rare Defect Miraculously Becomes a Life-Saver

    An immeasurable amount of tragedy has emerged following the Aurora, Colorado, shooting massacre. But among the stories of loss and pain is the fascinating, inspirational and practically-unbelievable tale of 22-year-old Petra Anderson’s miracle recovery.

    On Friday, the young woman joined countless others in heading to Century 16 Movie Theater to see “The Dark Night Rises.” In the end, she was one of the victims facing serious injury early that morning, sustaining multiple gunshot wounds, including taking a bullet through her brain.

    Being shot a total of four times, Anderson’s injuries were extensive. While the first three bullets hit her arm, the fourth went through her nose, heading up through her cranium and reaching all the way to the back of her scull, The Huffington Post reports.

    Mitt Romney has been pushing a deliberately misleading attack against President Obama — and we all need to get the facts out now.

    Romney claims the President told entrepreneurs they didn’t build their own businesses — an attack the Washington Post called “ridiculous.” If you’ve seen the President’s actual remarks, you know that all the President said was that, together, Americans built the free enterprise system we all benefit from.

    President Obama has consistently fought for small businesses and entrepreneurs — he knows the American middle class was built by hardworking people turning ideas into successful businesses. But if the Romney campaign wants a debate about who’ll step up to support small business, we’re ready.

    Take a look at this video I recorded to respond to Romney’s distortion, and help make sure people know the truth about President Obama and small businesses:

    It’s the Truth Team’s job to push back against smears like this.

    President Obama’s record shows his commitment to helping small business owners. His tax plan will extend tax cuts for 97 percent of American small business owners — building on the 18 tax cuts he’s already signed that are helping small businesses grow and create jobs. Romney opposes the President’s plan, and supports a plan that would favor large corporations and give tax breaks to companies that ship American jobs overseas. Check out this blog post comparing the President’s record to Romney’s, then share it with others:

    This isn’t the first time the Romney campaign has twisted the President’s words. It won’t be the last. But every time they do this, we need to call them out — and this time is no different.

    Thanks for all you do,

    Sen. Scott Brown Slams Obama: Let America Be America Again

    The Democrats have fallen a long way since Kennedy. Under Obama, they believe the government is the almighty and Americans can’t create anything without their help.

    The chart that shows just how much reelection trouble Obama is in

    A daisy chain of political disaster seems to be forming for President Obama, says political analyst Dan Clifton at Strategas Research. Clifton suggests that “there seems to be a relationship between consumer confidence and whether a president gets reelected. The current levels of confidence are consistent with Carter and George H. W. Bush when they lost reelection.”

    Barack’s turning 51 in a couple weeks. And when he goes home to Chicago for a birthday party in his backyard, a couple grassroots supporters like you will be flown in from wherever you live to celebrate.

    In the middle of a tough election, it’s important to pause on occasion and take some time with friends.

    What do you say?

    We’ll cover the flight and hotel for you and a guest — donate $5 or whatever you can today to be automatically entered to win:


    Take it from me. You’ll have fun at this one.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Mitt Romney attracting 45% of the vote, while President Obama earns support from 44%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

    Keep drawing the irrational enmity from the Righties. When they are so singlemindedly preoccupied with how you are doing, you know you are doing something right. Even when you are not getting the ratings, you still piss them off! Oh, how sweeeeeet it is.

    NBC Wall St.Journal Poll

    Obama 49% Romney 43%

    I knew the poll was going to favor the President because the sycophant of all sycophants Tingles seemed calm and resonable at 5pm this evening. I don’t even have to see the results of a poll I just have to tune into to Tingles and see how his legs are feeling.

  • Suikostinger

    lol, the guy from ABC didn’t even say it was him he said that a guy by the same name is in the tea party and that they don’t know if it’s him….either way, it’s dumb to say, but man, the right have taken it way overboard. Does anyone remember Sherry Sherrod and what Fox News did to her?

  • TheBoss1

    The GOP … The Guardians Of Plutocracy.

  • TheBoss1

    @Sicilian Papa … your constant reference to “Tingles” is tired and old. Get some new schtick. Bore, bore, bore.

  • Sicilian Papa



    The numbers for MSNBC are temporary. A lot of their viewers switched over to CNN for coverage of the shooting. Politics is back and the viewers will follow.

    Did I use “their” in the right form? Suiko, Boss

  • MathMan

    Got to agree with you on Brian Ross comment trying to tie the shooting to the TEA party. I wonder if he found ties to the Democrats or Republicans if he would have said anything? Bias reporting is one thing but Ross, as chief investigative correspondent for ABC News, deserves more than a slap on the wrist. Maybe a demotion to just “correspondent”.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Why can’t CNN keep an audience beyond tragedy coverage?

  • betty

    Is there anyone more Pathetic than that Mealy-Mouthed Wimp, Brian Ross ?
    I absolutely despise that Ugly Creature ( can you tell ? )
    Little Georgie Stephan-Dopey-Mouse is a poor excuse for a Tv host. (Bleh)

  • Sicilian Papa



    Ross is pretty respected investigative reporter. He has done stories that have angered the left. I don’t know why he jumped the gun on this one.
