Amity Shlaes talks to John about the Presidency of Calvin Coolidge:
What’s Right with Ransom:
Somehow the conversation about the looming debt ceiling has gotten somewhat lost. . . Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, however, seems less than optimistic about the negotiations. (Bloomberg)
New inflation numbers are out. . . They show a 0.1 % increase (not including food, energy, or anything else that actually impacts the consumer’s spending habits). Mike McKee, however, weighs in that the Fed actually uses their own number anyway: (Bloomberg)
Kelly Evans on CNBC accidently reported on Obama’s stewardship of “two economies.”. . . Wall Street, and Main Street. (CNBC)
Ok. . . Did you get that? Kelly is actually suggesting that the President look at appointing someone who will manipulate fed policy to accomplish POLITICAL goals. . . Is this another new mandate for the Fed?
Want to know what happened in Benghazi? Yeah. . . So do the rest of us. The Administration is working hard to keep witnesses silent. (FreeBeacon)
The Media started right up blaming the gun – not the person – for yesterday’s tragedy. Could we just grieve for a minute or two first, Feinstein? (DailyCaller)
Oh, wait. . . There is more. The DC Mayor is blaming sequester cuts. (Washington Post)
And. . . Heaven forbid the President reschedule his speech to a more appropriate time. (FoxNews)
