Saturday news & notes

  • House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) issued a “statement” on Twitter yesterday making it clear no one person is to blame for the current state of the economy, saying, “It’s not fair to blame any one person or political party for all job losses.” It’s good to see Rep. Cantor realizes there’s plenty of blame to go around.
  • Speaking of Republicans sticking up for President Obama, Republican Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, defended President Barack Obama’s handling of recent terrorism threats, and took issue with former Vice President Dick Cheney’s criticisms of President Obama:

    “It’s unfair,” Lugar said in an interview for Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” airing this weekend. “I think the president is focused.”

  • In a story that will no doubt enrage conservatives who despise vote fraud, it’s been revealed former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney voted last month in Massachusetts’ state Republican primary to choose a candidate for Sen. Ted Kennedy’s, despite having sold his only home in that state. Romney voted in last month’s primary using his son’s address.
  • And finally, it’s official….James Carville is certifiably crazy.

    1. Yeah, I’m not sure why Sen. Reid gets off with just a simple apology. Comments like that are no good, whether they’re coming from a Democrat or a Republican.

  1. It’s kind of unbelieveable really. I was reminded of Senator Lott and how he was railroaded for saying nice things about once-segregationist Strom Thurmond at his birthday party. That created a furor and I wonder if the reaction to Reid wil be the same. Of couse, Biden called Obama “clean and articulate” and he got promoted!
