Chaos as Greek Retirees Mob Banks to Withdraw Cash


Stock markets across Europe sharply surged on Wednesday over hopes that a deal between Greece and its creditors can be put together in time to avoid a bad Greek exit from the Euro. At around 7 a.m. ET, the CAC-40 in France was up 2.5 percent at 4,908 while Germany's DAX rose 2.1 percent to 11,171. The surge comes as retirees throughout Greece mobbed banks in order to withdraw a maximum of 120 euros ($134) in pension payments. Greece's failure to repay its loan to the International Monetary Fund — which comes after Greece failed to extend the bailout program it has relied on for five years — forces the country to fall into arrears on payments to the fund.

Chris Christie Says His 'Controlled Anger' is a Sign of Passion


Presidential candidate Gov. Chris Christie told NBC's Matt Lauer his temper on the campaign trail shows a "controlled anger" that demonstrates his passion about important issues. "It is an absolute controlled anger. A controlled anger," he told Lauer in an exclusive interview on the day of his presidential announcement. "I'm angry about the fact that taxpayers were being ripped off in New Jersey. I'm angry about the fact that our urban kids can't get a good education. I'm angry about those things, you're darn right I am. And I think America wants someone who's willing to fight for that." Christie has gotten many questions about his temperament and the New Jersey Republican said his anger remains controlled "almost all the time" and that he's lost his temper "very few times" during his governorship.
