State of the Union's Early Bird morning news note

Happy April Fools Day. It's no joke that we're up super-early to prepare for today's program. Prepare along with us - read what we're reading this morning.

On our radar: The 2012 GOP primaries move to Wisconsin, where an influential Republican in the state announced his endorsement of Mitt Romney on Friday (he's our guest, see below). We're also keeping an eye on the Middle East and rising tensions in Iran and Syria.

Check out what we're reading, and be sure to watch our exclusive interview with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. We'll also talk to Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan on the winding down Republican primary season; and we'll get a handle on the Mideast with the chairman and ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee. State of the Union airs today at 9am/12pm ET.

Check out what we're reading, right here.

Watch State of the Union with Candy Crowley Sundays at 9am ET. For the latest from State of the Union click here.

    Help! We are being bombarded by Rove's negative attack ads on Obama in Florida.

    If corporations are people too, are they subject to the republican DOMA? Would that mean that Ben and Jerry's, or Smith and Wesson are illegal? Would Estee Lauder be allowed to merge (marry) with Victoria Secret?

    Sounds like another typical Sunday of DC propaganda, where the GOBP and rightwing program guests outnumber the Dem and progressive guests by at least 2-1 if not far more. Where are the Dems, CNN?

    Obama had open up federal land for drilling, which big oil refuse to drill because they are making too much money by driving up oil prices. The repubs are trying to kill healthcare, which will strand 30 million people, this will lay off hundred of thousand of healthcare workers, and damage thousands of small businesses who depend on the healthcare industries to make their products. This decision will devastate the stock markets, because of the shock this will send among the financial. Who ever thinks this will be a good thing for business, to lose 30 million paying customers, have another thing coming. The earth is getting hotter and all these repubs wants to do is drill baby drill and send more earth crippling carbon into our atmosphere. Big oil spew big money on these repubs to kill the clean energy of the future, as they block this president every initiative to save our next generation, and the existence of the earth.
