- Long weekend and now Tuesday feels like Monday.
- Rick Santorum suddenly finds himself the frontrunner-- again-- and he wastes no time in questioning President Obama's faith, in quoting the Bible to deny climate change, comparing the president to Hitler and in blasting earmarks that he voted for. If that's not a Republican for ya, nothing is.
- Meanwhile, instead of traveling around the country and calling Republicans islamoterrorists, comparing them to Hitler, quoting the Bible to prove God is on his side and spreading many other conspiracy theories like the GOP is doing, President Obama is instead focusing on real issues that matter to everyday Americans: extending the payroll tax cut and keeping the economy going.
- Mitt Romney still contends that even though he opposed the government bailout of GM, which has proven wildly successful, that he was right all along.
- In January alone, Romney spent $18 million on 4 primary contests. He only won 2.
- The gays just won't leave Romney alone. His co-chair in Arizona, a hugely right wing Republican Sheriff who is considered a rising star in the Party (just days ago gave a speech at CPAC) for his tough-guy stance on immigration and crime, got outed as a secret gay man with an illegal immigrant Mexican boyfriend.
- Here's what constitutes as Fiscal Conservatism for the GOP:
Congressman Connie Mack has made penny-pinching debt-reduction central to his U.S. Senate campaign, but privately he has struggled at times with borrowing and paying his own obligations, court records show.
Mack sometimes appeared to spend more than he earned, had property liens filed against him, overdrew his bank account and didn't have enough money to pay his federal income taxes after his 2004 congressional election, according to court records from Fort Myers to Jacksonville to Fort Lauderdale. [...]
Mack's biggest expense: a $675,000 home in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Virginia. Mack used a generous jumbo loan and credit line from the former Countrywide Mortgage to close on the deal less than 20 days after his election. He later took out a $17,000 line of credit on the home with another lender -- effectively borrowing nearly 98 percent of the purchase price of the house.
