The latest round of Qs and As from Chez, Ben and me. First the Qs:
1. After seeing this graph showing the dozens of votes the 112th Congress has held on repealing the ACA, while the President’s Jobs Act has had but a single vote (failed due to filibuster), I got to wondering… Why isn’t The Jobs Act, or lots of variations on the Jobs Act also brought up for a vote by Democrats over and over and over as well? Wouldn’t that paint a picture of a recalcitrant Republican Congress (you know, the guys who have that laser focus on “jobs, jobs, jobs”) refusing to lift a finger to try and turn this economy around? – Kurt Basham
2. I’m trying to come up with an appropriate punishment for Nancy Grace for her behavior over the mother who set herself on fire. I’m thinking exile in North Korea for 30 years as a minimum. Seriously, where does she get off? Why the hell does CNN continue to employ her? She’s a serious liability who is culpable on a certain level for at least two suicides now. Is there anyway to get rid of this woman? She may get ratings but she’s a classless troll who should not be taken seriously by any self respecting establishment.
3. Hey guys, strategy question: If you were romney, would you try to appeal to the center in the election or just stick to the base? Read Ben Cohen’s article on Romney embracing Dick Cheney and think he’s right. If he doesn’t pick Rubio there’s really no point in trying to get Latinos. What do you think?
