SOTU Crib Sheet for August 5th

ON STATE OF THE UNION:

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina took on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid saying, “I think he's making things up, and at a time when the country is just about to fall apart.” He also urged the president and congress to “find a way to avoid sequestration,” calling it “the dumbest thing.”

Obama campaign senior adviser Robert Gibbs said that Mitt Romney could easily clear up the whole issue. “Mitt Romney can go to Kinko's; he can photocopy his tax returns. ... He could hand them out to reporters all over the country. And, you know what, we wouldn't talk about this tomorrow. ... I’ll send him the nickels.”
