Morning Newsdome: Muammar Qaddafi is more delusional than Charlie Sheen

Muammar Qaddafi
>> Muammar Qaddafi told the BBC yesterday that "all my people love me" and would "die to protect me." Then fighter jets bombed an ammunition depot as fighting between Qaddafi's troops and rebels intensified. The U.S. and the U.K. are contemplating a no-fly zone in which fighter jets would patrol and shoot down Libyan aircrafts. If that doesn't work, they should adopt the Nelly Furtado policy. (BBC, the New York Times, Gawker)

>> Moody Analytics predicts the Republican plan to cut $61 billion in federal spending over the next seven months will destroy 700,000 jobs through 2012 and would reduce economic growth by 0.5 percent this year. Goldman Sachs predicts the plan will reduce growth even more, by 2 percent. Just get rid of unions, that will solve all our economic woes. (the Washington Post)

>> President Obama told the National Governor's Association yesterday that he would allow some states to opt out of the Affordable Care Act if they prove the same amount or more would covered. Doesn't matter, House Republicans only have repeal on the brain. (the New York Times)

>> The non-partisan Government Accountability Office found that billions of dollars are spent in inefficient federal programs, like the 44 of 47 job-training programs that overlap and the 82 programs spread across 10 agencies to improve teacher quality, which local school districts already do. Perhaps we need money to form a new agency to regulate all the other funded agencies. (Fox News)

>> And finally: When asked what the "most dangerous city in America" is, Texas Gov. Rick Perry answered Juarez... Juarez, Mexico. An aide finally pointed out the mistake. Don't mess with Juarez. (Politico)
