Election 2011.. some interesting mixed results. In
Ohio, a bill to curb the power of unions was overturned by voters. But voters
there also voted to be able to opt out of the national Health Care law. In
Virginia, it looks like the GOP gets control of the Virginia state senate with
several GOP victories. In Mississippi, voters rejected a law that would have
granted "personhood" to a fetus, but also voted to demand photo ID at voting booths.
Republicans won the statehouse in MS. In KY dems picked up a governorship.
Joe Paterno briefly spoke to supporters last night. The Penn
State Coach is being urged to step down (including by one of our guests), but
there are a lot of supporters too including those that showed up at his house
last night chanting Penn slogans. Meantime outrage growing over how the alleged
sexual abuse could of gone on for so long.
Iran warning the U.S. and Israel he will never stop his
quest for nuclear "power," but denies they are pursuing nuclear weapons. Tell
that to the U.N.'s watchdog agency which issued a report yesterday some are
calling a smoking gun in the case for Iran pursuing nukes.
Some bad news out of Italy again today. Markets in Europe
reacting very badly after borrowing costs for Italy hit more than 7%.. widely
considered bailout territory. Berlusconi says he'll leave after reforms
introduced, but events may be overtaking the whole of Europe. Keep a close eye
on U.S. markets today.
