'Left, Right & Center': Blah Jobs, Grilling Hagel and Immigration Reform
Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss the unemployment rates stalling at 7.9 percent while the economy added 335,000 more jobs than originally estimated. Also, Senate Republicans come down hard on Chuck Hagel, defense secretary nominee and former colleague.
They criticized Hagel for positions he had taken on Israel, the Iraq War and the nuclear threat from Iran. Is he too liberal for the Republicans? Obama pledges to put an immigration bill before lawmakers if they don’t come up with one themselves. Will immigration reform finally happen?
Joining Scheer and host Matt Miller is the Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein on the right.
