More on Rick Perry - George W. Bush’s brain, Karl Rove is attacking Perry for accusing Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke of “almost treasonous” behavior. Perry went on to say that “we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas”. Rove is also warning that candidates shouldn’t be “moving so right”. Tonight we’ll have the latest on Perry and why Rove is going after him.

 

The Weekly Standard is reporting that Congressman Paul Ryan is “strongly considering a run for president”. He’s been meeting with political strategists over the past three months and is currently on vacation in Colorado discussing the possible run with his Family. Meanwhile on Fox News last night Karl Rove told Sean Hannity that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is also looking into a presidential run.

 

Sean Hannity needs to get his facts right. He told his audience last night that President Obama inherited 5.6% unemployment - that’s a flat out lie. Tonight Ed is going to set him straight.

 

The final Wisconsin recall elections are today. State Senate Democrats Robert Wirch and Jim Holperin are up for recall. We’ll have the latest on these races tonight.
