Retweeted by Chuck ToddSenate just passed, without warning, a 1-week DHS funding stop-gap measure by voice vote.
Retweeted by Chuck Todd@morningmoneyben nobody in Washington knows how to declare victory anymore. It boggles the mindIf someone sets up Kickstarter..I'll put in for Homeland Security..
Retweeted by Chuck ToddIf I were antiamnesty GOP Rep I'd worry abt shutdown. I wouldn't want 2 approve Sen. full-fund bill. Why not vote 4 Boehner's short-term CR?

Retweeted by Chuck ToddGiven the need to keep DHS funded, does WH lobby House Dems on a second vote now that they sent their message?Options: Pass Senate Bill. Weekend CR. Shut it down.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddYou can say that 172 Dems just voted against a bill that the president said he would sign, yes. But the majority runs the House. Always.
Retweeted by Chuck Todd@tonyconig you haven't a clue about my politics.@IToldYouMonsoon I understand your critique but this was the tool the GOP chose to use.Can't help but look at this vote as a rebuke of the GOP leadership. Boehner was only looking for 3 weeks and 20% of the Conf boltedSince the 1940s RT @politicalwire: The biggest GOP majority in how many years still can't pass a bill?
Retweeted by Chuck ToddMy gut is on the Schiavo issue, it will be more of a problem with some in a general than it will be an asset on the right in a primary.@BrianDelburn @adamsmithtimes I know there's a difference but some in the base believe there isn't a differenceDo no harm... was the @JebBush goal and sure appears he accomplished that. It's all about escaping pariah status with the right.A "path to legal status" -- appears to be a phrase by Jeb to get out of the "path to citizenship" boxJust me or does @JebBush seem a tad nervous?@indiesarah @nmcucchiara @meetthepress @packers FTWAt 2016 Convention, Duck Dynasty guy will speak to an empty chair before introducing nominee Rand Paul

RIP Leonard NimoyThank you @SmartPolitics for chart about oldest elected FIRST term sens http://t.co/y9fZOlYCx5 //@CookPolitical @kenrudin and I r gratefulExcuse me, that was NOT the "most important of our lifetime"?Have we ever had a presidential election that was the "most important of our lifetimes"?Actually, it is stunning how NY/NJ have a majority on SCOTUS. http://t.co/6qD84j24A2 #americansforgeographicdiversityScalia notes the lack of geographic diversity of SCOTUS.

We sent our team to Nebraska and South Dakota to talk to the folks actually impacted by Keystone. https://t.co/yh3ewpMdy5Is this really that hard of a decision for Senate Dems? Lot of over-thinking. No one says you have to clap if you go http://t.co/xLKNi8AklsStrickland, Sestak and Feingold are all good Dem sen recruits. But couple these w/Clinton and 2016 Dems risk looking like party of the past

A month ago, my two fave schools both looked like sure NCAA tourney teams. Now, both bubbley at best. #RaiseHigh #GoCanesIf it's Saturday... your @meetthepress preview is here. Chime in. https://t.co/YyqGNreaPU@mslacat the alternative political org that the Obama team created out of the 08 campaign. Never invested in DNC@_N0TCH_ i think you are right... major party orgs are shells of their former selves... Which is a bad thing if you want transparent elex@chucktodd RNC & DNC are done. PAC $ is much easier to be sleazy with
Retweeted by Chuck ToddMeanwhile, is Scott Walker trying to redefine the phrase "unforced error"? http://t.co/MACvfiCsRtJust read summary of DNC task force on what went wrong for them. Didn't say much. And it avoided biggest issue: How OFA gutted the DNC@jmillstead G.W. and the Canes come first. Then, yes, thanks to my late father-in-law, we cheer for the #VilleOnly emergency vehicles should be on the road right now. Please stay home.

More at 11!"@chucktodd @brannonmc if you claim rights on the movie "Birdhood," that's a sure-fire Oscar winner.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddAnd I keep doing this, it is "BirdMAN!" Still triggers the hum!

Retweeted by Chuck Todd@TimJGraham won't belabor. But the headline implies something different@newsbusters but you failed to note the critique I had of the Obama WH on this debate as well. Your headline was biased@newsbusters way to only headline half the criticism. Par for the click bait course@cityartssf @BooksIncEvents @cityboxoffice looking forward to it.

Retweeted by Chuck ToddFrom @perrybaconjr, how Rubio went from GOP ‘savior’ to an underdog in 2016 http://t.co/y6u2HHQO7g@Spectricide first step is to get folks to admit what a giant waste of time it is@RobsRamblins wasn't meant to be cogent... just pointing out what a giant waste of time it isThis is a week in political debate that might as well be summed up like this: "am not" "are to" #wastedoxygen@Willovsky I've had Jackson arguments on that front too. A successful politician who might have created more problems as president@TorianBrown ha. Maybe my next one?@CFMarshall_119 @TODAYshow I did.

Retweeted by Chuck ToddThis #snl40 stuff is everywhere: Jeb Bush quotes Chris Farley: "Holy Schnikes."Just get a sense there will be plenty of voters who didn't like EITHER Obama OR Bush's foreign policy, where do they go?If 2016 on foreign policy is a debate about Obama way vs Bush 43 way, won't public be looking for a third way? Opening for a candidate@WolfNW @meetthepress absolutely... curious where he's searching for fresh foreign policy thinking. Adviser list isn't obviousJeb, like his brother, promising a re-engagement w/Latin America. Makes sense given FL/TX politics.
