Breaking: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has selected Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) for the so-called “supercommittee” on Thursday.First of all, Mitch McConnell, senate minority leader, promised other day that he'll not choose any Republican senator to the Super-Committee who's willing to put revenue on the table. This came when President Barack Obama clearly said nothing is off the table, that includes revenues. So in the midst of this, what did Harry Reid do? He went ahead and chose his Democrats senators because he was, " serious about forging a bi-partisan deal." Yeah that's right, the Republicans are serious about making this a bi-partisan deal. What a classy guy?
The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, chose Senators Jon Kyl of Arizona, Rob Portman of Ohio and Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania for the 12-member panel.

If you think the first version of this deal was horrible, wait till the second part comes along. It's going be disaster of epic proportions for President Obama and the Democrats alike.
