Daily News Round-Up for June 22, 2009

Politico (Washington, DC)
Nearly a month after President Barack Obama picked her for the Supreme Court, Republican senators say Sonia Sotomayor isn't serving as the political lightning rod some in their party had hoped she would be.

New York Daily News (New York, NY)
Republican senators slammed President Obama as "timid" Sunday for not strongly supporting Iran's protesters.

Los Angeles Times (Los Angeles, CA)
Republicans questioned the cost of healthcare reform plans Sunday, and even Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) acknowledged similar concerns and said she wasn't sure there were enough votes among President Obama's fellow Democrats to pass a plan at the moment.

Washington Post (Washington, DC)
Despite signs that the recession gripping the nation's economy may be easing, the unemployment rate is projected to continue rising for another year before topping out in double digits, a prospect that threatens to slow growth, increase poverty and further complicate the Obama administration's message of optimism about the economic outlook.
