LongReads and Wonkblog



The site, as you’ll see tomorrow, will also be undergoing a substantial redesign: It will be much more navigable, with more ways to sort content (say, by author or subject) and find new posts you might be interested in. It will be quicker to load, and easier to read. It will also include some features and tweaks that have long been on the wish list: the ability to easily print articles, for instance, or to keep them atop the page. There will also be more weekend content, including a regular collaboration with LongReads.com on a weekly roundup of the best long-form policy stories.

This is awesome.  Congrats Mark!

Republicans Didn’t Get Obama Message

Some in the GOP want to sink the jobs bill even though they like it, report Marin Cogan and Jake Sherman: “House Republicans may pass bits and pieces of President Barack Obama’s jobs plan, but behind the scenes, some Republicans are becoming worried about giving Obama any victories — even on issues the GOP has supported in the past. And despite public declarations about finding common ground with Obama, some Republicans are privately grumbling that their leaders are being too accommodating with the president. ‘Obama is on the ropes; why do we appear ready to hand him a win?’ said one senior House Republican aide who requested anonymity to discuss the matter freely. ‘I just don’t want to co-own the economy by having to tout that we passed a jobs bill that won’t work or at least won’t do enough.'”
