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:

– Barack Obama is going to run for re-election. That news will be treated as if it is a major news story. Why exactly? Of course he is running for re-election.

– Jon Huntsman actually appears now to be running for President. I have no idea why.

– Libya seems to be at a standstill. What of American prestige?

Senior Editor of Mario Solis-Marich:

– Phoenix: Sec. Hillary Clinton is now the most popular individual in the Administration as America regains its popularity and respect in the world, where are her critics now?

– Rooster: Organized Labor will rule the roost today as Madison inspired protests around the country will draw tens of thousands and herald the renewed American labor movement, will the media crow as loudly as it did for the Tea Party protests?

– Turkey: The first Wisconsin political election showdown is set for tomorrow as a conservative State Supreme Court judge fights to keep his seat. Didn't Gov. Walker say that union busting is what "the people" had voted for?

    If ignorance were gold, these ‘Jungle Bunnies’ could pay off the National debt and have
    enough left to create a Reserve-Retraining Work Force and put all the unemployed back
    to work. We do not need to borrow any money from China that they created. Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution gives Congress the power to create money. Congress should create enough new money to pay down the National Debt and pay the interest on the debt with new money. How do we expand our GDP without creating new money since money is the medium of exchange? If the News Media, The President, and the members of Congress would spend a little time at the and get a little education, we could easily solve all of our economic problems.
