FromThe Washington Post: “President Obama continued efforts to open himself to direct scrutiny from his critics on Monday, sitting for a half-hour of questions submitted to YouTube during his State of the Union address last week.” Adds Don Surber on his Daily Scoreboard: “Except the White House handlers got to pick the questions. You want transparency and tough questions? Broadcast his next meeting with the Democratic Caucus.”
Ooops, he did it again: “President Barack Obama took another dig at Las Vegas at his New Hampshire town hall Tuesday after similar remarks got him into hot water last year. Obama said that people should now “blow a bunch of cash in Vegas” during a tough recession. Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman called for Obama to apologize after he made comparable comments last February. ‘When times are tough, you tighten your belts,” he said at the forum.” You don’t go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage. You don’t blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you’re trying to save for college.’” So much for that re-election, eh, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV)?
How do we get out of this recession? “The U.S. government must spend its way out of the recession, the Democrats' third-ranking House leader stressed Monday.” That Congressman? Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.). That philosophy? Business as usual.
