WH: Obama Not Going to Return $1M in Goldman Cash!

The "honorable" Gibbs says: "Again, the President doesn’t take, and didn’t in the campaign, take PAC money, doesn’t take money from registered federal lobbyists. And I think anybody that contributed to the campaign at any point knew where the President stood on regulating Wall Street and regulating the financial industry. From, again, that first speech on Wall Street in 2007, the second speech in March of 2008 in the same venue we’re going to go to, and then -- anybody that watched the campaign from sort of mid-September on, obviously the focus was on what to do on Wall Street."

Uncovered Video: Ronald Reagan and James Dean Star in 1954 Live Broadcast!

The Atlantic: Today, it's an astonishing, even eerie, scene: the icon of modern American conservatism, whose rise to political prominence was galvanized by the cultural rebellion of the 1960s, fighting off an attack-at-gunpoint by the quintessential modern American rebel. But when "The Dark, Dark Hours" episode of General Electric Theater aired live from Hollywood on December 12, 1954, Ronald Reagan and James Dean were just two actors yet to find the roles that would define them.

No one has seen this episode in the decades since; the kinescope has been locked away, until now. My friend Wayne Federman, a writer for NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, unearthed the broadcast, condensing it from its original 23 minutes (without commercials) into the six-minute version you see below. (Federman is planning a retrospective of Reagan's television career for next year's Reagan centennial.)
