Protestor opposes cuts to entitlements outside White House

A top Republican attacks Pres. Obama's budget as a "shocking attack on seniors." And he's not wrong. Strange how Republicans are suddenly all for an undeniably socialist program, though. Brian Buetler writes that this sort of self-laid trap is something that's bound to happen when you negotiate with yourself.

OK, now Grover Norquist's Club for Growth is for chained CPI. That wasn't the case earlier today. These people need to get their stories straight.

Finally, a man tries to use his firearm to protect himself from government. As so often happens in these cases, he's dead now.
