This Sunday: Mitt Romney’s time at Bain Capital has given the Obama campaign ammunition to attack the former governor’s business background. Sunday, we’ll talk with one of Mitt Romney’s top advisers, Ed Gillespie, for a response from the campaign.
Then: Election-year politics dominated Washington this week after the debate over taxes returned, even creating a divide among some Democrats about whether to support the President Obama’s tax-cut proposal. Meanwhile, in a symbolic move, House Republicans voted to repeal Mr. Obama’s signature health care law. How will these two big election-year issues play out and how will they affect the campaign? Joining us, two members of the Senate leadership: Assistant Democratic Leader Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Assistant Republican Leader Sen. Jon Kyl (AZ).
Also Sunday: The findings of a new report prepared after an exhaustive 8-month investigation into the Penn State child abuse scandal by former FBI Director Louis Freeh has shaken the reputation of one of the country’s proudest football programs and university. Sunday, we’ll discuss what went wrong at Penn State and what needs to be done to prevent a culture of silence in major institutions. Joining us, Bob Costas of NBC Sports.
Then: Four months to go until election day and both sides are working furiously to stay on message. Can Mitt Romney’s campaign fend off the barrage of attacks on his business record? The candidate tried to pitch his prospectus for the country this week in front of the NAACP but received a lukewarm reception. Plus, President Obama renewed his call this week for Congress to eliminate the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, harkening back to his demands for fairness in the economy. Our roundtable features two men at the center of these debates: president of Americans for Tax Reform Grover Norquist, and NAACP President Ben Jealous. Also joining the roundtable with analysis on the busy week in 2012 politics featuring GOP strategist Mike Murphy, Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen, and the Washington Post's Bob Woodward.
