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:

– How effective was the President's jobs speech? Five minutes after it was over everyone was talking about a terror threat and an hour later everyone was talking football.

– The President's jobs speech mirrored the same speeches he gave in February 2009, January 2010, and January 2011. All you need to do is watch this video from the Huffington Post.

-The major danger for Obama is that he gets a lot of what he is asking for because Republicans do, in fact, support key parts of his plan. But those parts won't create jobs. So the President gets his bipartisan plan and also gets no jobs. Game over for him in that case. Blogger/Founder Jane Hamsher:
