http://twitter.com/#!/troodler/status/496435433681993728 President Obama on Monday signed a bill that will provide an additional $225 million in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile defense system. http://twitter.com/#!/ZekeJMiller/status/496415952377249793 http://twitter.com/#!/joevaid/status/496419975784304640 It wasn’t a one-man effort. http://twitter.com/#!/markknoller/status/496413334262927360 Congress might have approved the bill last week, but as much as people say they want Obama and Congress to work together, plenty weren’t happy to see the president put his pen to work, though many seemed to have missed that Iron Dome is a […]

http://twitter.com/#!/eriContrarian/status/444192748891955200 There had been buzz all afternoon that some Senate Republicans were on the verge of agreeing on an unemployment extension.

http://twitter.com/#!/Doc_0/status/469138889018322944 Because BUSH DID IT! Seriously, the President shouldn’t have to make public statements about stuff he didn’t even know about until he saw it on the news. That’s not really fair. http://twitter.com/#!/sven10077/status/469139304040914944 Perfect. http://twitter.com/#!/ShovelReadyArug/status/469141327427694593 A bargain. http://twitter.com/#!/rg_real/status/469180303282831360 Those can burn you though.

Jesse Jackson wants to amend the Constitution because you’re racist

http://twitter.com/#!/The_NeoKong/status/497201258051010560 Of course they can, but the left needs a spin that makes fighting voter fraud look racist. http://twitter.com/#!/RevJJackson/status/497200522101661697 There’s clearly a lot of energy for the idea. As of this posting, of Jackson’s nearly 45,000 followers only 17 gave him the retweet he asked for. [Editor’s Thursday morning update: He’s up to 19 RTs now. Clearly, momentum is building.] http://twitter.com/#!/whitoccur/status/497209882982879232 Heh. http://twitter.com/#!/SnarkBitten/status/497220843479396352 Busted? *** Related Jesse Jackson wishes people would shut up about the pope-bashing retweet he still […]

Sen. Feinstein defends Hillary from Benghazi report; Hume destroys claim

http://twitter.com/#!/kararowland/status/423875576084959232 Senator Dianne Feinstein is attempting to make the case that the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report on the Benghazi attack placed part of the blame on the State Department, but not Hillary Clinton. Fox News’ Brit Hume easily tapped in that short putt: http://twitter.com/#!/brithume/status/423966706180968449 Oof! We’ll now wait, probably for a very long time, for Sen. Feinstein to answer that question. Obligatory: http://twitter.com/#!/MrNailsin/status/423966911760588800 *** Related: Martha MacCallum crushes it with Benghazi boom-question; Hume calls out Obama […]

Ingraham: Will GOP homer or strikeout on Obama’s amnesty ‘slow pitch’

http://twitter.com/#!/princessjill7/status/508285409646755842 The White House has said that President Obama will delay taking any executive action on immigration until after the November elections. Laura Ingraham wonders how the Republicans will play it: http://twitter.com/#!/IngrahamAngle/status/508284927067316224 Will the Republicans take advantage of Obama saying he’s going to delay an action the White House obviously believes will be politically unpopular in order to avoid further harming Democrat chances in November? Opinions vary: http://twitter.com/#!/znmstr/status/508286562782941184 http://twitter.com/#!/drgon466/status/508285484913532928 http://twitter.com/#!/EdMcLaughlin45/status/508286162717663232 http://twitter.com/#!/CalMur2/status/508285260975439872 Considering Obama’s throwing “skill,” will the […]
