Progressives forget about their one per-centers....and we had to see Rmoney's tax returns...

"When President Obama's budget chief Peter Orszag left for Citigroup, it was one of the highest profile revolving-door cash-outs of the Obama administration.

Now Orszag is fighting in court for special protection against standard public records laws, which would ordinarily make public how much Citigroup is paying him."

"Montana Democrats Demand To See GOP Senate Candidate's Birth Certificate
The Huffington Post | by Samantha Lachman
Posted: 02/26/2014 3:16 pm EST Updated: 02/27/2014 10:59 am EST

The Democratic Party of Montana is calling on GOP Rep. Steve Daines, who is running in the state's high-profile Senate race this year, to release his birth certificate -- echoing the "birther" strategy employed against President Barack Obama.

Daines has alternately asserted that he is third-generation Montanan and fifth-generation Montanan, though he was born in California.

"No matter what generation Congressman Daines claims to be, he's a stranger to both the facts and Montana values -- and Montanans deserve the truth," Bryce Bennett, a Democratic Montana state Representative, said in a statement. "Montanans can't afford a Washington politician who thinks he can get away with fooling the people he's supposed to represent."

The statement continues, reading "Congressman Daines has to get his bio straight."..."

Military Groups Blast Republicans For Killing A Bill To Support Veterans
Business Insider
By Paul Szoldra 14 hours ago

National Guard

Veterans organizations are not happy with U.S. Senate Republicans today, after a bill to expand health care and education programs for veterans failed to gain enough support to move forward, Reuters reports.

From Washington Post:

The measure , sponsored by Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), collapsed after failing to garner enough Republican votes to waive the VA spending cap established in a budget deal Congress and President Obama approved in December. Sanders’s office estimated that the VA legislation would have cost $20 billion over 10 years.

60 votes were needed to waive the budget rule but 41 of 45 Republicans voted against it, effectively killing the bill.

Calling it "Senate Shenanigans," the non-profit Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America lamented senate leaders who were engaged in "procedural games."

"It has been a winter of discontent, starting when Congress cut military retirement benefits before being pressured into reversing course," IAVA Founder and CEO Paul Rieckhoff said in a statement. "Then earlier this week, Congress forced the Pentagon to make budget cuts that increased living costs for our service members. And now the Senate can’t pass a critical and transformative bill that includes priorities that have garnered bipartisan support for years."

And this from the American Legion:

“I don’t know how anyone who voted ‘no’ today can look a veteran in the eye and justify that vote,” American Legion national commander Daniel M. Dellinger told WaPo.“Our veterans deserve more than what they got today.”

Some Republicans reasoned that the bill would be too costly for the budget, but others, led by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) tried to add new sanctions against Iran to the bill that the White House has strongly opposed, according to Reuters.

"The issue of Iran sanctions ... has nothing to do with the needs of veterans," Sanders told Reuters."

A new statewide telephone survey of Likely South Dakota Voters finds Rounds ahead of Weiland by 20 points - 51% to 31%- in the race to succeed retiring Democratic Senator Tim Johnson. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, while 11% are undecided.

I assume Lois aka Carol et al didn't get the memo?
Recall yesterday her saying that because of the Democrats, veterans benefits were cut.
Is she blaming President Obama because she didn't get the house?
Stay tuned; today she may get a hangnail and blame him for that too

Well, you took some of these out of context and others were misinterpreted. My guess is deliberately.

For example, Reagan immediately corrected repeating the famous quote at the Republican National Convention: "Facts are stupid things -- stubborn things, I should say." He corrected it and got a laugh from the audience. Reagan's sense of humor was also evident in his Latin America remark.

Glenn Beck immediately added to his 9/11 victims comment: "I don't hate all of them. I hate probably about 10 of them." The ones who kept complaining after so much had been done for them.

George Bush's comment was simply in the context that history records every president's accomplishments and failures long after they're gone.

And his human beings and fish coexisting analogy was in the context of reassuring business owners in Saginaw, Michigan, that he wouldn't support tearing down energy-producing dams merely to protect certain fish species.

Pretty sure you get the picture though.

And as far as Reagan's comment on trees causing pollution, seems the EPA agrees with him.

http://www.epa.gov/ord/sciencenews/scinews_tr...

"[Trees] release a variety of gases that contribute to air pollution. In fact, the planet's vegetation accounts for about two-thirds of the pollutants known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted globally."
