Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg: "I have message to the person who attacked us and the people who are behind it: You're not going to destroy us. You're not destroying our democracy and our work for a better world. We're a small country but a very proud country. No one can bomb us to be quiet. No one can shoot us to be quiet. No one can ever scare us from being Norway."


Yahoo News: "Return of Mass Layoffs a Grim Sign for U.S. Workers"

Rob Port: "Barack Obama: Franklin Roosevelt Was 'Pretty Fiscally Conservative'"

Bloomberg: "U.S. House Stops Voting for Week With No Action to Keep FAA Operating"

Grover Norquist: "Read My Lips: No New Taxes"

Rasmussen: "Obama 41%, Ron Paul 37%"

Hot Air: "Fed audit: $16 trillion in loans to banks in less than three years"

Wall Street Journal: "Senate Democrats gets a free pass to hide under Sen. Chuck Schumer's brand of attack politics while pretending to favor spending cuts and debt reduction and to oppose tax increases."

Either the Obama campaign is a little too excited about the president's birthday, or they're just announcing the projected unemployment rate by the end of his first term now.
