#Twoppics – Politics: Congressman Wu, Debt Crisis, Cemetery Prayers
Twoppics, taking a look at what people on Twitter are saying about the hottest political stories of the day…
It was a big “whoops” by Congressman Wu. Oregon Democrat David Wu announced his resignation today, though he’s holding on until a hot button topic is settled… FOX News Radio’s Jessica Rosenthal reporting. Wu’s tiger costume pictures are not helping him out any on Twitter, especially with @jimgeraghty…
In his post-Congress career, the lawmaker will wear the tiger suit full-time and host a creepy children's show, "Wu's Clues."

I wonder if that creepy former Congressman Wu ever used the line "Hey baby can I Wu you??"

While @lil3ichmann is taking a far more serious approach to the scandal…
Speaking of that hot button topic, the debt crisis continues to take center stage in DC. Both sides took to TV Monday night to try to get the American people to see the benefits of their plan. House Speaker John Boehner’s plan looks to be the first to get voted on…but the White House threatens to veto it… FOX News Radio White House Correspondent Mike Majchrowitz reports. Forget passing the Senate, some conservative Republicans are suggesting there aren’t enough cuts in spending to get the bill through the House. Optimism is fading on Twitter, including @pourmecoffee…
Day may come when the rating of men falls, when we forsake our debt and break all bonds of credit, but it is not this day. Probably Aug. 2.

And @EliBraden thinks talks are really just a gimmick…
Obama's just dragging these debt ceiling negotiations on so he can inhale more of Boehner's cig breath.

Finally, a Texas Congressman says he has first-hand evidence that the Veterans Administration is censoring Catholic prayers at Houston National Cemetery. FOX News Radio’s @toddstarnes has the details…Twitter is getting the story thanks to Todd and a similar post over at foxnews.com, and the story is getting opinions from readers like @MicahMorris…
Thank you John Culberson for sticking up for Veteran families to say whatever prayers they want at funerals at Nat'l Cemetery-They earned it
