‘Left, Right & Center’: A Tale of Two Economies, Obama’s Charm Offensive

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists ask whether the new jobs being added match the ones that are lost. Should we mourn a permanent decline in the middle class? Accept it and train for it? Should we cheer the recent economic growth, or fear another crash?

President Obama is on a charm offensive on Capitol Hill. Will all this dining out help his relationships, or is it too little too late? Sen. Rand Paul filibusters against the CIA’s John Brennan over the program of aerial strikes from drones. Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg calls for women to lean in at work.

Joining host Matt Miller and Scheer this week are Matthew Continetti, editor-in-chief of The Washington Free Beacon, and Melody Barnes, former director of President Obama’s Domestic Policy Council.
