Join Jim and Greg as they welcome a January jobs report showing more than half a million new jobs, although they’re more dubious as to whether Biden deserves the credit. They’re also concerned about the spotting of a Chinese surveillance balloon over Montana near a key military site and discuss Biden’s decision thus far not to shoot it down. Finally, they fume over the Biden administration’s new climate agenda, which seeks to emulate the pandemic-era emissions levels by encouraging working Americans – and even students – to engage from home.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are thrilled to see over 300,000 jobs created in January, easily surpassing expectations. They also smack Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine for the wimpiest possible opposition to the controversial abortion bill in Virginia and break down the logical problem in Kaine’s official position that he’s personally opposed to abortion but would never impose that view on others. And they dissect the launch of New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s 2020 presidential campaign – with Jim offering an extensive review of Booker’s time as mayor of Newark.
