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:

– What the heck is a "kinetic military action"? Just words, to quote the President?

– An Al Qaeda leader tells the Libyan rebels to keep fighting. Only in Barack Obama's America would we be rooting for the same team as Al Qaeda.

– Remember the debt ceiling? Congressman Tom Price (R-GA) says the House GOP will tie defunding Obamacare to the debt ceiling. I won't hold my breath, but I sure hope he's right.

Talk Show Host and Online Editor of Mario Solis-Marich:

– High Dive: Obama visits America’s largest export region and the GOP calls it a “Spring Break”, is there anybody serious about creating jobs on the right side of the aisle?

– Belly Flop: Gingrich’s massive flip flop on Libya reminds GOP insiders about the former Speakers lack of “stability”.

– Swan Dive: Violet Eyes, Black hair, Big Heart.

    Will CNN put on a new reporter or political commentator who was an adult in 1986. I think comparing Obama's actions to either of the Iraq incursions/attacks by Bush(s) inaccurate and unfair. A more appropiate comparison would be to Reagan's 1986 bombing of Libya, which by the way was unilateral from the oval office and without leave from either the UN or Congress. For those who cannot recall 1986, due to age of convience, perhaps CNN should call in comments from reporters or commentators who can compare these two actions. Interstingly, Reagan's unilateral actions in 1986 received none of the codemnation from Congress or the GOP, though most of the world disapproved of Operation El Dorado Canyon.

    All of these coments about what country is in and what country is out with regards to Libya. After the USA and Bush mislead the other nations over Iraq's WMDs it is a wonder that they are getting any support.
