Surreal to hear McConnell complain on 60 Minutes that recovery has benefitted mostly the wealthy. But ask any more of the wealthy? Nope.From Gaza 2 the campaign trail, Scout Tufankjian is one of America's great photojournalists. Thrilled 2 welcome her this week @UChiPolitics.The old @steelers were remembered for the Immaculate Reception. Given all the hot air, will @Patriots be known for the Immaculate Deflation?

With @drose at the controls, chicagobulls look like @chicagobulls tonight against @spurs. So everyone take a deep breath!@GlennThrush @ron_fournier Thanks for the kind words about my book! Eager for folks to read it.Lots of good buzz about the @davidaxelrod memoir popping in Feb. from ppl who read galleys. especially Axe's childhood/early career stuff.
Retweeted by David AxelrodInteresting 2 read Israeli press on Boehner-Netanyahu deal. Viewed there as risky ploy, brokered by Adelson to lift Bibi's sagging poll #s.Brian Deese, named senior advisor by POTUS, is a star. Among other things, he was unsung hero behind '09 effort to save U.S. auto industry.

The quick reversal in CW is really head-spinning. Post midterm CW: Obama dead! Today's CW: Obama resurgent! Fickle business, this politics.."jonfavs; @jheil it's true, I'm highly irregular.” I'd suggest bran flakes..@jheil @jonfavs All the same things, except Favs would resent being called a "regular guy."

And while I'm on the subject, is there any question Phil Jackson is dumping games now in hopes the @nyknicks can grab Okafor in @nba draft?@noamscheiber Remember what happened when the @chicagobulls visited your place last month? See you again on Friday!Simple message for fans of @NBA: The @chicagobulls are great and getting better. Tonight's win against @HoustonRockets just another sign.At a time of low oil prices and growing U.S. energy, is Keystone really the most pressing issue? Or is it just red meat for the GOP base?

Now that "The Interview" is available for viewing, would it be unpatriotic to take a pass?Note: The quarter before Obama took office, the U.S. economy SHRUNK by 8.9%, worst since 1930. Last quarter it GREW by 5%, best since 2003.
