  2. Just hopeful
  3. Not confident at all
  4. Let the cuts happen

Funny Earlybird. I think I'll wait until summer. Street Dance and cry in my beer at the same time. What more in life could you wish for. Except for no Mosquitos.

Let the cuts begin. Bob Woodward can defend himself, does it well. Obama has "little" helpers.

"MarketWatch is a subsidiary of Dow Jones, a property of News Corporation. MarketWatch is part of Dow Jones' Consumer Media Group, along with The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, the WSJ**** and affiliated internet properties. Through the Rupert Murdoch-controlled News Corp. ownership, MarketWatch is also affiliated with, among many other global media properties, the New York Post, The Times of London, Fox News Channel and multiple other 20th Century Fox spinoffs, and HarperCollins publishers."

Who knew this? Perhaps not many MDN readers, I for one.

But I do know (and I'm sure somebody else can point this out to me too) that a person can find whatever info he/she wants on the internet--pro, con, or indifferent to any stance one takes.

billgrr, thanks for recommending MarketWatch. I'll trip over there now and again to see what's up. According to them, right?

I can respect Bob Woodward for standing when it's hard to do.

Maybe the White House can just go threaten a few more people, like they did Bob Woodward.

Now leftwing, many sources, not just those "right wing" that you despise, consider the sequestration idea all the President's.

I think this time, shooting oneself in the foot can be done equally, by both lefties and righties, in stereo and living color.

Just once I would like to hear a candidate say I'm going to work with the problems we already have, I will not introduce no new problems or programs. The only change we need is to change the government back to when it was functional.

How can anything get done when every person that gets elected to office has their own personal agenda to carry out.

Doubt that the current congress could resolve anything.They have often talked about common ground but when there is non- they all stick with their money backers -corporations,finance,insurance ,real estate--oil-to much greed and not enough of what is good for the country as a whole.

yup, that 1% really makes a difference....i wish the libs could be honest and admit the 1% talk is only a way to get the low-info voter upset. the libs are jealous of anyone doing better than them so they feel a need to break them to 'their' level. pitiful way to live.
