Weekly Address



The (yawn) Republican response by Michigan representative Dave Camp is here...


Nate Silver explains why the White House calls down right wing pundits and correspondents by name:
the White House is clearly comfortable going after individuals as props, as foils, for its own arguments. It's aligned with the brand of Obama as problem-solver-in-chief, calling out specific instances and individuals to say, hey look, see what I mean about a petty political culture?

I regularly suffer from insomnia, but I'm not complaining; I've learned to put the time to good use. But on that rare ocassion where I really do want to get some sleep, I'll just replay that Dave Camp response video. Thanks!

A good address-- glad to have seen & heard it. So glad to hear a president talking about re-building infrastructure, as I've long thought this was crucial & neglected, & I believe will be a stimulus. Also amazing to hear a president who's well-spoken after 8 years of GWB.

The Sox look strong but that's gonna be a killer division.
