Reid Chooses Super Committee Members

Is it just me, or is this Super Committee which will decide another $1.5 trillion in cuts, a very stupid idea? Not sure why McConnell or Boehner would have ever agreed to this, unless of course, they were drunk or blackmailed.

Ok - it's a committee of 6 dems and 6 GOP. But President Obama says he will cast the deciding vote. I think we all know where this is going to end up.

Harry Reid chose his senators yesterday and showed how un-partisan he can be: by selecting two of the most radical lefties in the entire senate in Patty Murray and John Kerry. And I'm hearing McConnell and Boehner will not choose anyone who voted against their budget plan, so that excludes pretty much anyone with any spine.

Sounds dreadful.
