They audio is quite possibly NSFW, unless your work is really into this new "rap" stuff I'm hearing so much about.

Rep. Paul Ryan.
Jindal described the premise of the question -- "Do you want the president to fail?" -- as the "latest gotcha game" being perpetrated by Democrats against Republicans.
"Make no mistake: Anything other than an immediate and compliant, 'Why no sir, I don't want the president to fail,' is treated as some sort of act of treason, civil disobedience or political obstructionism," Jindal said at a political fundraiser attended by 1,200 people. "This is political correctness run amok."
Jindal, a potential 2012 presidential candidate, told the Republican audience he would "not be brow beaten on this, and I will not kowtow to their correctness."
"My answer to the question is very simple: 'Do you want the president to fail?' It depends on what he is trying to do."
Four words in response, Jindal gets it.

Senate Republicans warned of deficits that could climb to $20 trillion in coming years and a weakened dollar if Obama and his Democratic allies get their proposed $3.6 trillion budget plan passed.
"The practical implications of this is bankruptcy for the United States," said Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H. "There's no other way around it. If we maintain the proposals which are in this budget over the 10-year period that this budget covers, this country will go bankrupt. People will not buy our debt; our dollar will become devalued."
That's the kind of stuff we need to be hearing from GOP politicians. It gets even better, though. It seems Obama's budget plan is such a disaster that even Susan Collins, R-DNC HQ, isn't on board:
"It would double the public debt in 5 years, triple it in 10 years. ... That is not sustainable. It poses a threat to the basic health of our economy," Collins said.
It would be nice if you'd taken a stand like that against the Porkulus bill, but I guess it's better late than never. I'm sure she can still be bought off, though.

Barack Obama. Still a public fister.

Facing such dissatisfaction, Boehner is reportedly getting tough, threatening to deny help to Republican House members who don't reach specific benchmarks for raising donations, assembling effective campaign operations and intelligently managing their resources. Those who fail the benchmarks won't get last-minute bailouts of cash from the National Republican Congressional Committee, Politico said.I wonder what the benchmarks will be - limit the number of times you fly in a lobbyist's jet? Yeah, I know. I'm the skeptic.
