Friday November 9, 2012 Happening Now

Fiscal Cliff. Say it with me! It's scaring investors here in the U.S. and overseas, and looming closer and closer on the horizon.. and it's adding uncertainty we don't need right now.

President Obama will address the fiscal cliff in comments early this afternoon. Many will be watching to see the tone he sets for upcoming talks with republicans. Hopefully the "spirit of bipartisanship," we've been hoping for will shine through!?!

1305EST -- POTUS delivers statement about the action "we need to take to keep our economy growing and reduce our deficit." East Room. LIVE

Disturbing news out of Iran.. where the rogue dictatorship fired on a U.S. drone operating over *international* waters. It's another provocation, though the drone was not hit.

Gas rationing. There's a phrase we don't hear too often, but today New York begins doing just that in NYC and parts of Long Island.. after that Nor'easter on the heels of Hurricane Sandy. Power is again out for thousands, and many communities are still abandoned and dark.

Remember the Jet Blue pilot who allegedly disrupted a flight by running through the plane yelling about terrorists? Well the suspect faces a judge for sentencing today.
