‘Left, Right & Center:’ A Hagel Filibuster, SOTU, Pope and North Korea

Posted on Feb 15, 2013

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists take on the Senate Republicans’ filibuster of Chuck Hagel. The GOP claims it wants more time and information. Will Obama’s choice for defense secretary get a vote?

The president channels his inner FDR during the State of the Union and proposes solutions for the redistribution of income such as preschool and raising the minimum wage. He ignored the budget and long-term debt. Can we afford any of his proposals?

Another North Korean nuclear test has the security establishment very worried. The president and others support a “Path to Zero,” but don’t have much agreement how to get there. The pope steps down, citing his age and health, during a tumultuous era in Catholic history. What is his legacy?

Joining Scheer and co-host Matt Miller is Republican strategist and former Minnesota Rep. Vin Weber.
