Biden defends Romney on faith

(CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden said it is "outrageous" that a portion of the American public feels uncomfortable with presidential candidate Mitt Romney's Mormon faith.

"Even though he may very well be our opponent, I think it's outrageous - I think it's outrageous that people - or the polling data show that they will not support him, whatever percentage it is because he's (Latter-day Saints), because he is a Mormon," Biden said while speaking at the University of Pittsburgh on Friday.

GOP encourages quid pro quo; White House won't wait for Congress

Washington (CNN) – The Republican weekly address struck a bipartisan tone Saturday as Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown appealed to Democratic Senate leaders to consider passing a jobs bill in an apparent exercise of a little quid pro quo.

"Leader Reid has come to me a few times and asked me to consider bills on their merits, and I'm always willing to do so. And now I'm asking the same of my colleague, the majority leader," the Bay State junior senator said as this week's GOP speaker.

5 GOP pres. candidates praise Reagan, berate Obama

Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) - On Friday evening in Iowa, five Republican presidential candidates spoke to a gathering of Republicans and followed a similar tack: speak well of Ronald Reagan and speak ill of President Barack Obama's leadership and policies.

The occasion: the Iowa Republican Party's Ronald Reagan Dinner in Des Moines, the group's largest annual fundraiser. Attendees paid between $75 for general seating and up to $1,500 for a VIP table of 10.
