‘Left, Right & Center’: The Imperial President or Small Ball?

Posted on Feb 1, 2014

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists consider whether President Obama’s State of the Union announcement that he would try to find ways to work around a dysfunctional Congress makes him an imperialist president.

Later in the week, he said he might compromise with Republicans on immigration, suggesting he might accept an immigration deal that does not include a pathway to citizenship for those in the country without documentation. How will the Republican Party handle the shift? Signaling more trade wars for Democrats, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he won’t consider a fast-track trade bill. In the most-well-read letter to the editor, ever, in The Wall Street Journal, Tom Perkins questions the politics of class warfare.

Rich Lowry of the National Review and host Matt Miller join Scheer on this week’s show.
