  • @BYUfan I think including military is fair. After all, that is a significant portion of what the Fed Government does. #
  • @BYUfan As for pre new deal, I am sure you are right, but I spent time looking for good pre-1940’s data to confirm and it is hard to find! #

  • MT @ggreenwald: I loathe much of what Rice did in office but this is easily the best speech of the convention: political efficacy + delivery #
  • RT @ZekeJMiller: RT @timkmak: RT @marcambinder: Ok, HRC v. Condi in 2016 is on. #
  • RT @ZekeJMiller: Key line of that speech: “She could be President of the United States if she wanted to be.” #
  • RT @chrislhayes: Did Condi just declare she’s running for Pres? Also, this is by far the best speech given so far. #
  • RT @JeffreyGoldberg: Why exactly isn’t Condi Rice currently the Republican candidate for President? #
  • RT @electionate: RICE: that’s why I accept your nomination for the… oh wait. #
  • RT @BuzzFeedBen: Weird to say of a former Sec of State, but so far Condi’s the one being made by this convention. #
  • RT @BuzzFeedAndrew: Wow, I don’t think anyone was expecting that. #
  • @DonnerKay @JeffreyGoldberg Yup. And a dozen other things. GOP needs to get over that. Maybe someday. #
  • MT @natsecHeather: not political. also not a good NSA. y’all are kidding yrselves @zerlinamaxwell RT @marcambinder Ok, HRC v. Condi in 2016 #
  • And say no. MT @TheFix: When the GOP nomination is open next Condi has ensured she is going to get asked about running relentlessly #gop2012 #
  • RT @sullydish: Condi seemed more like Christie – a moment for self-advancement, rather than ticket-promotion. #
  • RT @dandrezner: Wait, is Paul Ryan blasting Obama on Smpson-Bowles? Didn’t he vote against that commission? #
  • RT @chucktodd: Ryan criticizes POTUS for opposing the same Bowles-Simpson plan that Ryan opposed. #
  • On Ryan RT @HunterDK: Well, the fact-checkers all hung themselves about ten minutes ago, so I hope he doesn’t go on much longer. #
  • RT @owillis: shorter ryan: derp, derp, derp. audience: derp! derp! DERRRRP! #
  • MT @sullydish: Where I get really pissed off. He’s blaming lower national credit rating – created by Republicans, led by Ryan – on Obama. #
  • MT @NickBaumann: News thing about Ryan’s speech is huge chunks of it are not true. If that’s not your lede/hed, you’re not doing your job. #
  • RT @mckaycoppins: Paul Ryan really doing everything right with this speech. The GOP base is in mad, hot love with him. #
  • RT @owillis: paul ryan is hip and with it, he’s cited bands from 30 yrs ago as proof of this. #
  • RT @CitizenCohn: Ryan: Let’s make “the safety net safe again” By wrecking food stamps and Medicaid? Seriously, I’m speechless. #GOP2012 #
  • RT @asymmetricinfo: Chris Matthews seems surprised and angry that Paul Ryan gave a campaign speech on the podium tonight. #
