Tuesday’s Mini-Report

Updated
 

Today’s edition of quick hits:

* International incident: “Russian President Dmitry Medvedev took aim at Mitt Romney on Tuesday, telling the GOP frontrunner to ‘look at his watch,’ and dismissing his comments that Russia was an enemy of the United States.”

* Legislating: “The House on Tuesday afternoon approved the final, Senate-passed version of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, sending the non-controversial bill aimed at helping small companies raise capital to the White House for President Obama’s signature.”

* For the second straight day, the House GOP leadership is struggling to figure out what to do with a key highway bill. Remember, the clock is ticking: Congress has to act by Saturday.

* A rare moment of wisdom from the Speaker: “House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) took a slight dig Tuesday at Mitt Romney for criticizing President Obama while the president was out of the country.”

* Dahlia Lithwick, who’ll be on the show tonight, reports on her impressions from today’s oral arguments at the Supreme Court.

* Interesting controversy: “A Republican member of the National Labor Relations Board … leaked internal information to two former members of the board who are now working in the private sector, according to an Inspector General report released Friday.”

* House Democrats know it won’t pass, but they have a rival budget plan, which is infinitely more sensible than Paul Ryan’s vision.

* Geraldo Rivera is kinda sorta sorry about his ridiculous comments about hoodies last week.

* And Igor Volsky posts this clip of Rep. Louie Gohmert, who always has a unique perspective on health care policy. Today the Texas Republican shows he’s still deeply confused about pretty much every aspect of the debate.

Anything to add? Consider this an open thread.
