The acts of the last few days by the Egyptian military are completely unconscionable and I do believe we have to change our aid. I think also we have to have included in the legislation a national security waiver because we have to give the president not only the responsibility to deal with the government of Egypt but also flexibility.

A bipartisan kick-in-the-pants: Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) now backs a bipartisan immigration reform bill currently winding its way through the Senate, calling it ”a thoughtful, bipartisan solution to a tough problem.” The bill, which offers an employment verification program, border-security provisions and paths for both low-skilled and highly-skilled workers, isn’t without its Republican detractors, among them Sen. Rand Paul, who is willing to compromise on the bill but says the bill in its current form ”doesn’t secure the border.” A “gang of eight,” including high-profile senators from both parties—among them John McCain and Chuck Schumer—is working on the bill.

Prominent Republicans respond to Mitt Romney’s “gifts” comments
- Gov. Branstad “I don’t think it’s helpful. I guess my feeling is that we need to turn the page, and we need to focus on the future and not make excuses for the past.”
- Gov. Jindal "We need to continue to show how our policies help every voter out there achieve the American Dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children an opportunity to be able to get a great education. … So, I absolutely reject that notion, that description. I think that’s absolutely wrong."
- Gov. Scott “It’s wrong, it’s not true. What we’ve got to do is say we want every vote, we want to take care of every citizen in our state”
- Sen. Rubio “I don’t believe that we have millions and millions of people in this country that don’t want to work. I’m not saying that’s what [Romney] said. I think we have millions of people in this country that are out of work and are dependent on the government because they can’t find a job.”
- Sen. Ayotte “The campaign is over and what the voters are looking for us to do is to accept their votes and go forward and we’ve got some big challenges that need to be solved. I don’t know the full context of them but I don’t agree with them.” source
