The big story of course this weekend has been the story of the Secret Service agents being relieved of duty in Colombia. It’s now being reported that all this happened because of an argument over $47.

Last but definitely least… Tim Geithner was on Face the Nation this morning and was asked about Mitt Romney’s claim that 92.3 percent of jobs lost since Obama took office were held by women. Geithner called the claim “misleading and ridiculous,” but couldn’t refute the numbers. Geithner’s assessment was similar to that of the Washington Post’s fact checker: True but false. I propose a new rating for fact-check conclusions: “More accurate than Turbo Tim’s tax returns.”
