Did you hear the one about....

Marco Rubio, the very young Republican Senator from Florida, seems to be crying out, "Nobody called me about the President's immigration plan. Wah. Wah. Wah.!"

Talking Points Memo:

...And though Rubio has not criticized the substance of the White House plan outright, he is angry that no one sought out his opinion before the measure was announced.....

Rubio is an arrogant little man if he thinks that the President of the United States is going to seek advice from an inexperienced person like Rubio. 

••••••  Which presidential candidate took a $77,000 tax deduction on  their horse????

Daily Kos knows the answer:

...The New York Times reports that the Romney's took a $77,000.00 Tax Deduction on their dancing horse, Rafalca.

The Romneys declared a loss of $77,000 on their 2010 tax returns for the share in the care and feeding of Rafalca, which Mrs. Romney owns with Mr. Ebeling’s wife, Amy, and a family friend, Beth Meyers....

OMG!!!!  How is that possible that they were able to get a tax deduction for a horse that does ballet?????

People don't realize that the Romneys are big in the world of dressage. Here is an article about the Romneys and their dressage horses: Daily Dressage 4/29/2008 (includes a pic) 

•••• Mitt Romney only owns 6 houses, according to an article at Republicans for Obama

...Romney's personal real estate includes six homes: one in La Jolla, two in the Boston area, a ski lodge in Utah and two lakeside residences in New Hampshire.....

Romney is just a regular guy.
