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.

‘This is an excellent speech’: Lapdog Chris Hayes drools over tiresome Obama

http://twitter.com/#!/jjverdi/status/408281067066380288 Because yesterday’s snoozer of a speech wasn’t punishment enough, President Obama is droning on yet again today about the sorry state of our economy (which is totally not his fault, by the way). http://twitter.com/#!/markknoller/status/408278977128583168 Ugh. http://twitter.com/#!/CatsPolitics/status/408279976463859713 http://twitter.com/#!/IMAO_/status/408279840437972992 http://twitter.com/#!/RBPundit/status/408279042907840513 While we sane people are busy trying not to vomit and/or punch things, Chris Hayes is swooning like a lovesick schoolgirl: http://twitter.com/#!/chrislhayes/status/408277543242846209 Dude.

Henry Waxman turns Ebola travel ban question into immigration issue

http://twitter.com/#!/CaseyMattoxADF/status/522801100026826753 Rep. Henry Waxman continues to amaze at a House subcommittee hearing on the Ebola response. Waxman’s already lied by connecting Ebola in the U.S. to budget cuts, and when the question of potential travel bans arose, Waxman implied such a move would be anti-immigration: So Henry Waxman just compared a travel ban to immigration restrictionism. You go right ahead and make the restrictionists' case for them — John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) October 16, 2014 Yes, Henry Waxman […]

http://twitter.com/#!/ReganLieutenant/status/477244929932922880 “When I was ready to say what I said, I said it.” Hillary Clinton’s interview Thursday with NPR’s Terry Gross turned contentious when Gross pressed Mrs. Clinton on same-sex marriage and the Defense of Marriage Act, signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1996. http://twitter.com/#!/NYMag/status/477242766074728449 The exchange became so testy and convoluted that the Washington Post put together a flow chart to trace Hillary Clinton’s runaway train of thought.
