Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists ask, in the context of the new jobs report, whether the U.S. has two economies. Also, Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio wants immigration reform and President Obama does also, so what will it take to get it passed?

Has the national GOP ceded the Latino vote for a generation by inaction? Plus, much of the intelligence on the chemical weapons used in Syria comes from Israel. Does that somehow taint the intel? Meanwhile Russia is at odds with the U.S. over Syria. Why can’t Obama make headway with the Putin administration, and what happened to the “reset” with U.S.-Russian relations? Finally, Maureen Dowd and Charles Krauthammer are hashtagging a rejected gun bill and stalled immigration reform a FAIL. Has Obama already blown his post-election power?

Joining Scheer and co-host Matt Miller this week on the right is Vin Weber of government relations firm Mercury/Clark and Weinstock.
