Breakfast Scramble (Wednesday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Trump Card, Donald Trump continues to play the role of useful idiot,from Newsmax [1]:

Potential 2012 GOP presidential contender Donald Trump is doubling down on his call for President Barack Obama to produce a birth certificate, saying “facts are emerging” that have raised a “real question” as to whether Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve as president.

The president has spent “millions of dollars” in legal fees to “trying to get away from this issue,” Trump said.

Reax, Henry Percy, American Thinker [2]:

I never had much use for Trump in the past, but you’ve got to hand it to him in this case. Instead of hunkering down and apologizing when called a racist, he has doubled down on his bet and even released his own birth certificate. What? A Republican who refuses to grovel before Jesse Jackson when called a racist?

Schumer of New York, the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, apparently unaware that many of the reporters were already on the line, began to instruct his fellow senators on how to talk to reporters about the contentious budget process.

After thanking his colleagues — Barbara Boxer of California, Benjamin L. Cardin of Maryland, Thomas R. Carper of Delaware and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut — for doing the budget bidding for the Senate Democrats, who are facing off against the House Republicans over how to cut spending for the rest of the fiscal year, Mr. Schumer told them to portray John A. Boehner of Ohio, the speaker of the House, as painted into a box by the Tea Party, and to decry the spending cuts that he wants as extreme. “I always use the word extreme,” Mr. Schumer said. “That is what the caucus instructed me to use this week.”

“We are urging Mr. Boehner to abandon the extreme right wing,” said Ms. Boxer,
