Liveblogging Newtmittgeddon #4 24.1.2012 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Talk about it here. Watch it live on NBC, MSNBC, or Daily Kos . 6:44 PM PT : Whoa ... Mitt Romney talking about how there wasn't enough regulation of mortgage lenders. Free enterprise! 6:44 PM PT : And in the midst of an interesting discussion about housing policy, Brian Williams asks Mitt Romney what he'd do if a boat full of Cuban exiles showed up at his door. 6:46 PM PT : Newt pledges a covert war against Fidel Castro. Raul cackles. But what if Fidel Castro raped Kitty Dukakis? #fldebate — @nachofiesta 6:48 PM PT : Ron Paul delivers a huge dose of you all are fucking crazy to want to go to war with Cuba. 6:49 PM PT : Can you imagine any of these guys as president? Not in a million years. Romney probably comes closest, but only because he could play the part in a crappy movie-of-the-week on a little-watched cable channel. I don't want Mitt to apologize for being successful. But I'd gladly take an apology for tying Seamus to the roof of the car. — ...

Congressional Republicans Can and Must Force Obama’s Hand on Keystone Pipeline 24.1.2012 Red State
Immediately prior to the congressional recess in December, Congress passed an inefficacious two-month extension of the Social Security tax cut. Additionally, they reauthorized another two months of unprecedented long-term unemployment benefits, along with more spending for Medicare ‘doc fix.’ None of it, including the entitlement spending, was paid for in any meaningful way. Nevertheless, you might ask, didn’t we get the Keystone pipeline as part of the deal? Well, in reality we got nothing. Last week, Obama announced that he will deny the requisite permit to TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline, a decision that will cost thousands of jobs, billions in revenue from royalties, and cheaper products for all consumers. Even though Obama was required to issue the permit within 60 days of passage of the payroll tax deal last December, the text of the amendment ( Title V ) offered Obama the following loophole: (b) Exception .– (1) IN GENERAL .–The ...

GOP's Claim That House Passed 30 Jobs Bills? Bogus. 23.1.2012 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Click here to view this media I keep hearing this ridiculous canard in Republican debates and now from John Boehner about the alleged jobs bills the Republicans have passed that the "Democrat Senate" refuses to act upon. Since I watched the better part of their activity in real time, I know this is a lie. But most people aren't obsessive-compulsive about government and politics and might not realize just how much of a lie it is. So without further ado, let me debunk this claim made by the disingenuous Speaker of the House. WALLACE: Question -- how will you counter that line of attack? BOEHNER: Chris, 30 jobs bills passed over the last year in a Republican House of Representatives that are sitting in the United States Senate -- thirty. Our focus over the last 12 months has been on jobs. Our focus over the course of the next 12 months is going to be on jobs. The president asked us to extend the payroll tax credit, to make sure that we extended unemployment insurance with reforms, ...
