Be in the know: Today's political bullet points

Editor's note: Occasionally we will ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation in and outside Washington.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– Democrats' new talking point is that the Bush tax cuts did nothing for the economy, but that's only if you ignore historically low unemployment, rapid acceleration out of the 2000-2001 recession, and huge surges in GDP.

– The FDA is taking Avastin off label. Conservatives are gearing up to make this a fight over Obamacare.

– Consumer confidence falls again. It might be better renamed "Voter Confidence in the Democrats".

The Dewey Square Group Principal Maria T. Cardona:

– Tom Tancredo wreaking havoc among the Republicans as he calls for the impeachment of President Obama and the bombing of Mecca. Even more proof that Republican candidates this election are way out of the mainstream for Americans to trust. Hey but Dems love that guy! Do your thing Tom!!

– While the past two weeks have been a major distraction for the WH (some of it their own doing), Dems need to focus on their long list of accomplishments for this fall (this has been one of the most accomplished Congressional sessions) – voters have a true choice, electeds who will actively work to solve problems vs electeds who will take us back to the failed policies of the past.

– AZ ground zero for immigration debate – yet another poll showing Latinos overwhelmingly support POTUS and Democrats. Republicans continue to dig their grave with Latinos for the long haul. Dig baby dig!

    ALL illegal immegrants that are here should be sent back to origional country of origin, and have to legally come back if they wish. I don't care what country they are from. My family were immegrants at one time, and entered country legally. If they've been here a long time , it just means they've been breaking law for a long time. Go Arizona.We need the federal government to do their job, get them out of here and secure the bleepin boarders !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm very disappointed in president Obama, because, he says that "we now have more people guarding the border than ever", while that in it self may be the truth. How is that any different than when BP said after the first cap was put on the well, We've now are collecting more oil right now than after the well first blew up. But there was still 40,000 gallons of oil leaking out, just like there are still thousands coming across the border every month. Mr. Obama we are not all idiots, so please cut the baloney. If you want to stop the illegal immigrants and the drug dealers, and protect American soil, then It's going to take 10,000 fully armed ex combat veterans. Besides finally closing the border, it gives jobs to those who need and deserve them.

    i just didnt want to tell ppeloe the answer because they wouldnt grow or gain learning skills properly. it is like a math teacher just giving all the students the answer instead of teaching them. they keep on going to phoenix because it symbolizes rebirth or rising from the ashes that humans have caused by the destruction of their own property. you live in a world where everything you know is wrong. but all species have been at your stage at some point.VA:F [1.9.9_1125]please wait...VA:F [1.9.9_1125](from 0 votes)
