'Left, Right & Center': Jobs, Taxes and Debatable Behavior
The presidential campaign got a jolt this week with an uplifting jobs report and a big debate win for Mitt Romney. The falling unemployment numbers released Friday have skeptics wondering whether unemployment could have dropped 0.3 percentage points last month, just in time for President Obama’s campaign to tout it.
And did a spirited performance by Mitt Romney at the first presidential debate revitalize his poll numbers? Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer recommends former FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair’s new book, “Bull by the Horns,” to all who don’t yet loathe the two-party choice.
Matthew Continetti of The Washington Free Beacon joins Scheer and Fortune magazine columnist Matt Miller to tackle these issues and others on this week’s “Left, Right & Center.”
