Good Morning.

Fasten your seatbelts it's going to be another bumpy day..

All eyes on the markets again today..

Markets surged about 4% in trading yesterday after just as large a sell-off the day before.

Dow futures are up.. so far. Japan was lower, Europe is higher.. It's hard to keep up!

What's one to make of it? Good question for our first guest.

Fiery debate last night in IOWA! It was fun to watch Bret and Chris ask some tough questions. And the candidates did not spare President Obama -or-each other. Pawlenty really went after Michelle Bachman, and she gave as good as she got.. Mitt Romney claiming victory today, but the crowd really seemed to respond to Bachman and Ron Paul (he's our guest today)

In Britain, more than 1,700 have been arrested in a nationwide crackdown after four days of rioting.. One of the ways they're finding the thugs? Apparently using new facial recognition software.. Big brother IS watching.

A brutal crackdown intensifying in Syria.. the Assad regime appears to want to suppress the people once and for all. The U.S. all but calling for his removal.. but the gears of world politics grind very slowly.

We've got some great guests today including the woman who funded that cancer breakthrough, a man who wants to walk a tightrope over Niagara Falls, and a tourist who was on an Alaska cruise when all hell broke loose.
