‘Left, Right & Center’: A Dismal Jobs Report and Christie Bridge-Gate
Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists ask: With only 74,000 jobs created last month, who or what is to blame? Host Matt Miller wants to know why there is no real jobs agenda. Also, has New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie solved his Bridge-Gate troubles or is his image permanently tarnished?
Additionally, former Defense Secretary Bob Gates came out with a scathing memoir about his time working for President Obama. The National Review’s Rich Lowry, who provides the view from the right, says if you are outraged enough to want to resign from your post at the White House, maybe you should leave instead of keeping notes for your memoir.
Special guest and former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer says a president who loses sleep at night over a war is the president he wants. And a new Gallup poll shows independents are the new largest political group.
