The fact that the DoJ is taking meetings while the FTC’s Google investigation is still underway is, as the Post says, a clear sign that companies are “losing faith that the Federal Trade Commission will act forcefully on their complaints.”

I’m not sure if Mitt Romney’s election post-mortem conference calls with donors were supposed to go like this, but his freestyling redux of his contempt for the 47% “moochers” and “takers” on the government teat was on grand display.
You can only imagine it was his Id, sore and pissed about his failure as a presidential candidate, with a shaky finger on the “launch” button of a heat-seeking missile aimed right at his party for tossing him overboard so quickly after the election. All that talk about outreach to Latinos, that growing demographic demonized all campaign season long by the GOP; the talk of how sh*tty their pro-rape candidates were that sank their chances to pull the wool over the eyes of women, after Mitt stood by Akin and Mourdock, not calling for them to step aside.
Now it was his turn.

In an effort to win GOP favor on immigration legislation in Congress, the Obama Administration stepped up ICE deportations of undocumented workers to record levels. More than 800,000 immigrants were moved out of the United States in just two years by President Obama to appease Republicans, according to the Washington Post.

President Obama managed to show just how nimble and how disingenuous an administration can be in his response to the WikiLeaks fiasco.

So let me get this straight: Obama wants the Senate to take the drastic measure of ramming a sidecar through reconciliation, fanning a colossal GOP hissy firestorm about the cheaty system-gaming Democrat Party thwarting the will of the American people who gave the obstructionists their 41-seat supermajority, all so that he can… fiddle around the edges and increase the individual mandate penalty?

The worst is the folks at the Fed clearly believe the bogus stress tests were a meaningful exercise. That alone should disqualify them from getting a bigger role in bank supervision. And if you read their pronouncements, they plan to continue to use them, and have the process run by….a monetary economist! Help me! Bernanke also conveniently ignores the fact that the rally might also have a wee bit to do with the fact that he threw a bit over $1 trillion at the markets, as announced in mid-March.
I could go on, but you get the picture. The Fed seems to believe its own PR.
