Thursday's Teddy's

Where I wish I was as thought-provoking as Neal...

People are hurting from the recession. While we have a record number of people on food stamps, there have been calls to reduce the amount of money spent on it. Newt Gingrich wanted to call Barack Obama, the food stamps president.  One of the articles linked above, calls for a greater transparency for the EBT cards that are used for SNAP.  I imagine that Newt Gingrich's claims about food stamps are what is driving that debate, as well.

The middle class tax hike from Romney is not the entire truth.
Great information from FactCheck, already fact-checking the Democratic National Convention.

The steamy relationship between Bill and Barack. Craig Calcaterra mentioned on Twitter, and I agree with him, if for some reason we're invaded by Martians and we need to peddle some BS excuse about why we should be saved, Bill Clinton would be the best choice. Who says Twitter isn't entertaining?

Interesting article from PolitiFact on Debbie Wasserman Schultz's statements. They rated it as Pants on Fire with this in their conclusion: "In fairness to Wasserman Schultz, her main point in the extended audio clip is that Republicans have politicized the issue of Israel, and that is what’s dangerous, not that the party’s particular policy positions are dangerous."

"I shall propose a sweeping new program that will assure comprehensive health-insurance protection to millions of Americans who cannot now obtain it or afford it, with vastly improved protection against catastrophic illnesses," Sounds like something Barack Obama would say, right?  Click here to find out who.  Read the excerpt on Truman right above him. Interesting stuff.

Slate's Brian Palmer asks when did growing up poor become a prerequisite for the presidency? As usual, you can blame Bill Clinton.

Five questions that would be interesting if Mitt Romney is asked them.
