    •  Oh, my. This is simply excellent. I like that it (2+ / 0-)

      has categories and links.  One I found that's particularly pertinent after last night's debate is this press release about increased spending for veterans:

      http://www1.va.gov/...

      I nearly choked when Santorum conflated the reduction in the rate of increase in defense spending to actual cuts in the Pentagon budget and the VA.  That had to be deliberate or he's even more stupid than I though.

      •  Great! And add this to the lists: (0+ / 0-)

        "The Obama administration announced Friday it would stand by a policy that requires virtually all private insurance policies to cover family planning, including female contraceptives, essentially guaranteeing near universal access to birth control once all the provisions of the Affordable Care Act are implemented."

        "Friday’s decision comes after the White House was lobbied by religious organizations for an expanded exemption to the rule that would have allowed employers who are opposed to birth control to deny it to their employees."

        He stood up to the Religious Right on this.  Strange, because everyone here has been telling us over and over and over that he has no backbone.  I guess he didn't really mean it last week when he announced that he would cut defense spending and stop Keystone, huh?  
        And it didn't take any backbone to make the decision to order a surgical strike to get Osama bin Laden instead of just calling in a bombing raid.
