House two minute morning speeches today--what's with all the Rs
getting up and giving little composed lies about how great the economy is? What's up with that? First, it's not true; and second, what purpose does it serve?

1. I'd check to see
what's on the agenda for today. This is a setup for something else. It always is.

They're all on script. This is nothing new.

4. Just following the Hitler lead.
If you tell a lie often enough, people will believe it.

7. There is a GOP office which writes almost all of the morning speeches
for House republicans to give. I believe Gingrich started it and it now is run by other House leaders. I have no idea why they chose this topic for today.

8. Just because the big corps were heavy in tax receipts
doesn't mean the rest of us were. Big corp profits mean big back-pocket money.
