From Super Bowl to Super PACs

I hope this note finds you and your family well! Here’s what is going on.

The month of February seems rife with tests of Herculean strength. This is good. We need to get Washington, and the nation, moving forward. Bring it on!

The Super Bowl was just the first national show-down of the month. The long time alliance between Komen and Planned Parenthood suffered a rift nearly as large as the Great Rift Valley itself! The Santorum trifecta – wins in Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado – put new energy and life into his pro-life platform. From where we sit, now that President Obama has agreed to new standards for his own Super PAC, and his favorable numbers are inching upward, the Republicans need to find an end to the internecine arguing or face certain defeat in November. Nine months to go before Election Day!

Political unrest in the Middle East has made our work with the Consensus for American Security more daunting than ever. Back on the domestic front, the payroll tax deduction is coming up for renewal, (we think it will be renewed after much haggling). Transportation legislation is on the horizon, as are decisions about what to do with our aging infrastructure.

Happy and healthy Valentine’s Day!
