Be in the know: Today's political bullet points

Every day we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation inside and outside Washington.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– The President says he doesn't want to engage in scare tactics on the debt ceiling, but he says food inspections may suffer if we don't raise taxes and wants to know if we really want to pay the Chinese, not seniors if we don't raise the debt ceiling. No demagoguery there.

– Funny how the President would comment unequivocally about the constitutionality of DOMA, but not on Libya.

– The President was perfectly willing to lecture the Supreme Court, a separate branch of government, during a State of the Union speech, but he punted on taking a position on the NLRB's attack on Boeing, despite it being an agency within the executive branch.
