Sunday Evening News Roundup

Sunday Evening news Roundup

Tropical storm/hurricane Isaac appears that it’s veering more westward, away from Florida and toward Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Some projections include landfall around or near New Orleans. Southern Florida is getting some wind and plenty of rain.

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley tries to clearly explain the importance of Mitt Romney’s birther comments that I commented on yesterday. I think he does a very good job.

Ron Paul tells the GOP no thanks about speaking at the convention. Oh, and he says no to endorsing Mitt Romney.

Bill Nye, the Science Guy, is asking parents not to teach their children creationism.

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, has died. The astronauts of the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo projects were brave, smart, stoic and perfect for their time. May he rest in peace.

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has endorsed President Obama. He said in a statement, “But an element of their party has pitched so far to the extreme right on issues important to women, immigrants, seniors and students that they’ve proven incapable of governing for the people. Look no further than the inclusion of the Akin amendment in the Republican Party platform, which bans abortion, even for rape victims.” Again, I will reiterate that the moderate Republican has been pushed out of the Republican Party. Charlie Crist was a moderate Republican.
