Romney Takes First Lead in RCP Electoral College Calculation
RUSH: Okay, there's news here. Real Clear Politics. "The Poll of Polls" it's called. They take all the different polls and they average 'em and they come up with a single result. Mitt Romney has now moved ahead of Obama for the first time in the Electoral College assignation, 206 to 201. Just yesterday and the day before, it was Obama at 201 and Romney at 191 or 195 or some such thing.
I forget what it was, but Romney is now up five in the Electoral college. And guess what? One of the changes that's taken place: New Jersey has been moved from "likely Obama" to "leaning Obama." New Jersey! So it's very fluid. There's some Mitt-mentum going on out there, momentum, and it's not in Obama's direction, and they all know it at the regime.
Durbin: We Have to Fix Obamacare

Operates Olive Garden, Red Lobster, reportedly limiting employees' hours because of the health care law's regulations on business. And Dick Durbin says, "It's a bad result.

So now he tells us. Now he tells us. Now they want to sit down and work with businesses. After the fact. After they got their stupid bill, now they want to sit down and work with people and try to convince them to go ahead and hire full timers anyway and pay the freight.
