Mike's Blog Round Up
January 27, 2015

No More Mister Nice Blog: Sorry, conservatives. Jeb Bush will be “compassionate” towards undocumented immigrants and “politely asked them to leave.”

Liberal America: Sorry, conservatives. Rick Perry says the unemployment rate has been “doctored.” Then again, he can’t count to three.

Dean Baker: Sorry, conservatives. Cutting the duration of unemployment benefits did not drive job growth in 2014.

Mahablog: Sorry, conservatives. Greeks decided that the beatings will not continue until morale improves.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"We look a lot like Greece." (Senator Mitch McConnell, July 2011)

Guest blogging Mike's Blog Round this week is Jon Perr from Perrspectives. Send your tips, recommendations, comments and angst to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com.
