Ned Yost on the European Financial Crisis:
"You know, they’ve hit a few bumps in the road, but Europe is looking stronger than ever and I expect them to compete with the best of ‘em this year."
Yost on the National Deficit:
"It’s been lower, no question. But if you really watch it, you can see how it’s gonna settle down—I don’t expect it to be an issue in 2012."
Yost on Whitney Houston:
"Now there’s a set of golden pipes, let me tell you. She’s gone through a rough stretch, there’s no hiding that, but I think she’s gonna rebound this year and come back like the old Whitney."
Yost on Democracy in Afghanistan:
"The trick there is to get the locals to buy in—and you can see that happening already. I think you’ll see some solid balance between the executive and judicial branches this year, and don’t underestimate the legislature."
Yost on Syria:
"Look, every country goes through a slump now and again. Heck I’ve seen it happen to Chipper Jones."
Yost on Limburger cheese:
"Does it stink? Sure it does, but you know something, you put it out there for the guests, you stick with it, and next thing you know it’s helping you out because someone took their shoes off when they came in the door and maybe woulda stunk the place up but no one notices."
