Jess Mitchell: Paramount Hands Out For Free Tickets For Obama Economy Talk

At 8:30 a.m., the Paramount Theatre began handing out free tickets for a chance to see President Barack Obama in Austin later this week. People spent the night outside the Paramount to make sure they would be the first in line for tickets to Thursdays’ event. The tickets are free but will be handed out on a first-come-first-served basis.

People we talked to who began waiting in line Wednesday night said it’s an opportunity they just couldn’t miss.

“I see it as kind of like putting in a long 12 hour shift at work for a really great reward,” Jeff Britt said. “He’s not only the president, he’s a very historical president and I don’t know, I’d love to see him.”

The White House released a statement saying, “The three men enjoyed a personal visit in the Oval Office – as they have done on previous occasions when President Bush is Washington.”

The Bushes are in town to attend the exclusive Alfalfa Club dinner Saturday, an annual get-together for Washington power brokers that Obama also is scheduled to attend.

USA Today: Republicans were quick to rebuke the Obama administration after a third clean-energy company to receive taxpayer dollars, Ener1, filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this week.

But absent from their critique of Ener1 — which was awarded a $118.5 million grant from the Department of Energy in 2009 to expand an Indianapolis manufacturing plant — has been any mention that the electric battery manufacturer was also championed by one of the GOP’s rising stars, Gov. Mitch Daniels.

Ta-Nehisi Coates (The Atlantic): All parties agree that Ron Paul is not, personally, racist and that he didn’t write the (newsletters) passages …. As I’ve said before, we all must make our calculus in supporting a candidate or even claiming he is “good” for the debate. But it must be an honest calculus.

If you believe that a character who would conspire to profit off of white supremacy, anti-gay bigotry, and anti-Semitism is the best vehicle for convincing the country to end the drug war, to end our romance with interventionism, to encourage serious scrutiny of state violence, at every level, then you should be honest enough to defend that proposition.

What you should not do is claim that Ron Paul “legislated” for Martin Luther King Day, or claim to have intricate knowledge of Ron Paul’s heart, and thus by the harsh accumulation of evidence, be made to look ridiculous.
