Obama Nominates DOJ's Thomas Perez for Labor Secretary, Vitter Plans Blockage
President Barack Obama nominated Asst. US Attorney General Thomas Perez to be Secretary of Labor today. The former head of the Department of Justice's Civil Right's division is no stranger to Louisiana. While Obama may point to Perez's handling of the DOJ's investigation of the NOPD and (stalled) consent decree negotiations, U.S. Sen. David Vitter is remembering how U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder didn't write him back.
Sen. Landrieu Fights Obama on LA Energy Funding
On Friday, President Barack Obama unveiled an energy proposal that looked like a two-for-one. But the Louisiana senator who is a member of Obama's party is fueling concerns to the proposal in her state. Hitting two of his top energy concerns in offshore drilling and alternative energy, Obama proposed to devote billions in offshore energy royalties to clean energy research. But U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu says POTUS is ignoring a royalty imbalance in the first place.
Sequester Threatens Louisiana
State Would See More Than $200M in Cuts in 2013
There is much talk on the Hill and across America about "The Sequestering." While the tone and the title alone suggest doom and gloom like a bad horror film, the sequester is a very real series of cuts built into the federal budget. The clock is ticking down to a deadline of March 1, and no deal is yet done. If the Dems and GOP don't reach an agreement, the state of Louisiana could lose millions in federal funding this year and billions down the road.
Woman Threatened President Obama on Twitter, Facebook in N.O., Feds Allege
by Sarah Esenwein
A California woman is learning that social media sound boards are not the place to air your grievances of disdain for the POTUS, FLOTUS, and fam. In an interview with the Secret Service, Felisha Monet Mitchell, 32, of Palm Springs, Calif. admitted that she took to her Twitter and Facebook feeds and threatened the president in January, according to Acting U.S. Attorney Dana Boente. Mitchell was arrested and charged Thursday, Boente's office said.
Poll: Louisiana Staying Red, with Help from Dems
Turnout will be high, TV is the place for politics and Louisiana is staying red thanks to Democrats crossing the aisle. Those were the messages from the results of a recent poll of randomly-chosen Louisiana residents -- not just registered voters -- conducted by the LSU Public Policy Research Lab. Released less than a week before Election Day, the survey sought to give a snapshot of the Pelican State's voting populace heading into the November contest. If nothing else, it makes us feel like we matter, too -- even if we aren't a swing state that gets to watch a lot of Jeep ads while being visited personally by the candidates.
Obama Katrina Comments at Center of 'New,' 'Race' Video
Since having a hurricane fall on the anniversary of K wasn't enough, conservative pundits have once again invoked the spectre of The Storm and the Federal Flood. The method this time was through a 2007 video of President Barack Obama that a lot of people already saw during the 2008 campaign. In the speech to a group of ministers, Obama says the feds didn't waive the Stafford Act after the 2005 levee failures, contributing to the slow response and wayward recovery.

Obama, Romney to Visit Louisiana in Isaac's Wake
Isaac's mark on the presidential race couldn't only be felt in Tampa. President Barack Obama and GOP candidate Mitt Romney are planning trips to survey the damage. First up is Mitt Romney, who made a last-minute decision to come through to survey damage today. Romney is coming to the Southern Jefferson Parish community of Lafitte, which took massive flooding in the storm, to greet first responders. Bobby Jindal will also get some of the Romney time he lost this week, as he's scheduled to be with the GOP candidate. On Monday, Obama is taking his trip to view the emergency operations, and make sure unmet needs are addressed, according to the Whte House. Further details on where the President will be weren't immediately available.
