Chuck Todd mistakenly gets honest on Twitter

NBC Reporter Chuck Todd on Twitter just now:

“Gibbs says House GOP leaders and POTUS agreed to cut spending and reduce the president. #soundseasy doesn’t it. #detailsdetails”

He caught his error moments after.

Bad typo in last tweet. Gibbs said House GOPers and POTUS agreed to cut spending and reduce deficit.

The truth was refreshing while it lasted.

Blogroll Amnesty Day is Un-American

Each year around this time, I'm contacted by a small cadre of political bloggers looking to push something they call "Blogroll Amnesty Day."

GOP cancels Black History Month party, slices $372.68 off budget

WASHINGTON – After making campaign promises that they’d cut as much as $150 billion from the U.S. budget, Congressional Republicans could only come up with $32 billion in savings for the remainder of fiscal 2011, a move likely to anger their Tea Party base. However, deficit-hawk Paul Ryan, the Chairman of the House Budget Committee, insisted their work is not yet done.

“We’re just getting started,” Tweeted Ryan.

Ryan is set to announce that Congressional Republicans will shave another $378.68 from the 2011 budget by eliminating the GOP’s annual “Black History Month” party. [Read more]

I support the Egyptian people – provided it doesn’t affect me

Having watched events unfold in Egypt this past week, I must say I am impressed by the bravery and strength of will shown by the Egyptian people. They are standing tall against a dictatorial regime, and that is to be applauded.

However, I am not quite certain yet if Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak should step down. Because, while I understand he runs a repressive regime with little to no care about basic human rights, this is not a black and white issue. There are many unanswered questions still, with the main one being - how does it affect me? [Read more]
