John Stewart highlights an exchange between Obama and Eric Cantor, with Obama pointing out that “we could probably have a system where food could cost less, if we fired the meat inspectors” (paraphrase, not a quote).

Stewart also takes a shot at cable news shows for being obsessed with finding a winner.

Health Care Summit coverage starts 2 and a half minutes into this clip.

Its a Trap!

After republicans were schooled by Obama’s use of facts recently, they are nervous about going on TV again with him.

SNL: An apology from Rahm Emanuel

Recently it came out that the president’s chief of staff called some progressive democrats “fucking retarded”.

Sarah Palin took offense to that, calling for Rahm’s resignation on facebook.
She’s certainly trying to learn the right-wing media art of stirring up her idiot followers.
Palin remember, quit her governor’s job to go make money with Fox and tea party speeches.
Yes, believe it or not, someone pays her to speak, lol.
Her outrage over the word ‘retard’ is strange, considering she apparently called her own son her “retard baby”, and naturally her outrage is selective.

Here’s Saturday Night Live’s take on Rahm’s apology for using the term “retard”.

Nobel-winning economist Paul Krugman talks Deficit Hysteria

” …deficit fear-mongering has become a key part of Republican political strategy, doing double duty: it damages President Obama’s image even as it cripples his policy agenda. And if the hypocrisy is breathtaking — politicians who voted for budget-busting tax cuts posing as apostles of fiscal rectitude, politicians demonizing attempts to rein in Medicare costs one day (death panels!), then denouncing excessive government spending the next — well, what else is new?”

Reaction to the state of the union

And the president’s Q&A session with house republicans.
I’ve intentionally skipped any fox or republican reactions – too predictable.
