        Heya Chips. I’ve been laying low for a few days. Just no energy for the usual political death match. Glad I came back to see PBO throw Saint Ronnie back in the GOP’s faces.

    I see that Michele (one l) Bachmann has a hotel magnate, Jim Graves, running against her. He employs 500 people and has union endorsments. Said he believes in a livable wage and that he walks the walk. On the other hand, Bachmann said we needed to get rid of the minimum wage and pay “whatever” to workers–then our unemployment numbers would go down. What does she think happens to families that would be paid less then minimum wage. ? People are going to have to listen to her talk about all those kids she “raised” again. Foster kids stay for a week, a few weeks, a few months, and sometimes for a few years. That’s not raising them–what a weird, phony Christian she is–thank God she isn’t from my state!

      I hope this magnate guy eats her for lunch. I remember a dkos alarmist guy who was always claiming how that batshit crazy woman is a fundie fav and how she is gonna get the nomination and if Obama doesn’t watch it, she is gonna be next ‘murkan president. Don’t know if the guy still posts there.

        Laughed at a tweet I saw which said that all the Repub candidates endorsed by God lost to Romney. There were a lot of them who claimed to be divinely selected, Michele included.

    Romney campaign stumbles on equal pay

    By Steve Benen


    Eventually, after Ledbetter’s statement was released to the media, the Republican campaign said a Romney administration wouldn’t try to repeal the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, but wouldn’t say whether Romney supported the law itself. (Remember, the vast majority of congressional Republicans opposed the law when it passed in 2009.)

    As a result of all of this dissembling, the larger story this morning is that the Romney campaign stumbled on its own initiative, allowing Obama’s team to go on the offensive when Romney expected to put them on the defensive.

    Welcome to the general election, Mitt. I think you’ll find it’s a little more difficult than going up against Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.

    Bill Plante wants to know if PBO will be commenting on the Trayvon Martin case again. Jay says PBO has said all he is going to say. It’s an ongoing investigation. And now April Ryan is asking even more detailed questions about the Trayvon Martin case. You know there was a lot of activity surrounding the case yesterday. She actually asks Jay if the Department of Justice knows where George Zimmerman is. This is beyond embarrassing.

    Jay Carney is in his element. The jackals have parroted the GOP talking points on the Buffet Rule and Jay is pummeling them with the facts on tax fairness.
