The Saturday August 13th, 2011 Iowa Republican GOP Presidential Candidacy's Straw Poll ended with Michele Bachmann garnering the most votes and Tim Pawlenty throwing in the towel.

What does the Iowa Straw Poll victory mean for Bachmann? Also a S
Republicans are putting party before country. No they are putting the top 1% before country. The attacts on the Presidents is motivated to keep the focus off the issues that are really facing Americans, JOBS! JOBS! JOBS!
In new poll, 53% say they approve of the job the president is doing, with 45% saying they disapprove - @PoliticalTicker....

Chapter 1: Ken Cuccinelli Ticket Includes Controversial Lt. Gov.
First, a look at the race for governor in Virginia where the contest has become all the more controversial with the nomination of E.W. Jackson for Lieutenant Governor. Jackson will join Ken Cuccinelli on the ticket as Lieutenant Governor, a decision made by Republican Party activists over the weekend. Jackson is a firebrand conservative who has called homosexuals "perverted" and "very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally.” Just a couple of years ago, Jackson called the Constitution’s three-fifths compromise an “anti-slavery” amendment. Might this doom the Virginia Republican Party’s effort to keep the executive mansion? A Quinnipiac poll out just over a week ago showed Democratic hopeful Terry McAuliffe beating Cuccinelli by 5 percentage points, but a Washington Post poll out a week earlier showed Cuccinelli up by 10 points. We talk to David Weigel, Slate political reporter.
Chapter 2: Banks Behind on Foreclosure Settlement Payments Since the housing crisis of 2008, several major banks, including Bank of American, Wells Fargo JP Morgan Chase and Citigroup agreed to pay homeowners more than $5.7 billion for shady lending practices. Such practices ranged from pushing subprime loans, discriminatory lending practices, and unjust foreclosures. However, according to a report by the Washington Post this week, those banks have paid less than what they settled to, leaving millions without needed relief. We talk to Debby Goldberg, Special project director, National Fair Housing Alliance.
