John Gizzi of Human Events gives credit to both President Obama and Speaker Boehner for how they handled the disagreement over when Obama would give his speech on jobs. So who does he blame for the controversy? How did the White House briefing room react to the White House effort to schedule the speech the same night as a GOP presidential debate? What does Gizzi look for in the that debate? And how worried is he about the disturbing developments coming from our ‘allies’ in Libya?

‘Liberal Plantation of Dependency’
Earlier this week, Indiana Rep. Andre Carson lit a rhetorical fire when he said Tea Party conservatives wanted to make black people second-class citizens and some even wanted to see blacks ‘hanging from trees’. We get reaction from Jerome Hudson of the Project 21 Black Leadership Council. Why does Hudson call Carson’s comments ‘desperate’? How do they impact debates over political issues and the national dialogue on race? How do black conservatives respond to the Carson allegation that the Tea Party agenda is racist because it wants to cut funding for programs that many minorities depend upon for food and housing, etc.? And does he believe black voters are starting to reject what he calls the ‘liberal plantation of dependency and misery’? We discuss it all with Jerome Hudson.
