    if Mr. Ed is permitted to ask a question; could he, or would it be possible to ask the President, what he thinks the Freddie Mac report will say, ( you know, the one that is overdue ). Do you suppose Mr. Ed has the guts to ask that question..

    Why are people even allowed to tweet in important political situations? Isn't it these people's job to be attentive?
