Stories to Watch: 2/1/12

Not much going on here. So we'll get right to it. Here's the news...

Mittens scrambles to repair his "not concerned about the very poor" comment. It's probably too late, though. It's the big story of the day. Newt dives on it.

It's looking like Bill Kristol has finally accepted reality; no new candidate will come riding to the rescue. His new hope is Rick Santorum. Kristol really seems to love lost causes.

Public Policy Polling backs up Kristol, to a degree. If either Santorum or Gingrich drops out -- but not both -- he could be in for some real rough weather.

Laziest Punditry of the Day goes the the Washington Examiner's Conn Carroll. Conn takes Gallup's state by state approvals for Obama and assigns states accordingly -- as if high disapprovals mean an automatic loss. If that were true, we be talking about entirely different candidates right now, because Bush wouldn't have won his second term.

Senate Democrats make the Buffet Rule public.

The filmmaker who made Gasland was arrested at a House GOP hearing aimed at whitewashing the effects of fracking and undoing what few EPA rules govern it.

Finally, Newt Gingrich really is completely insane.
