Robert Reich: Why Obama Should Be Attacking Casino... →
robertreich: I wish President Obama would draw the obvious connection between Bain Capital and JPMorgan Chase.

Claire McCaskill Gets Tea Party Death Threat →
For anyone who thinks this is “an isolated incident” that should be ignored, think again. This is part of a very broad pattern of fear and hate mongering by the fascist right over the last 4 years.
