Sundays bring us the political talk shows. If you see something interesting on one of them, jump on the comment board and talk about it. Libya and the budget dominate this week, with the odd standout of Bloomberg’s Political Capital. According to Politico, here is the lineup for this week’s shows:
Meet the Press (NBC) — Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI), presumably will discuss Libya.
This Week (ABC) — President Barack Obama’s former national security adviser, retired Marine Gen. James Jones, will talk about Libya. Also, ranking Senate Budget Committee member Jeff Sessions (R-AL), and chairman of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee Chuck Schumer (D-NY), will cover the budget battle.
Face the Nation (CBS) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) will talk about the looming budget showdown.
State of the Union (CNN) — Jones appears here as well to talk about Libya. Also, Senate Budget Committee members John Cornyn (R-TX) and Mark Warner (D-VA) will talk budget.
Fox News Sunday — Continuing Fox News’s “fair and balanced” presentation of the budget battle, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) will discuss the opposing Republican views on the budget. Apparently, Democrats don’t have opinions on the budget.
Newsmakers (CSPAN) — Ranking House Appropriations Committee member Norm Dicks (D-Seattle) will talk about the budget. Perhaps this is the “balance” to the Fox News lineup?
Political Capital (Bloomberg TV) — Longtime NCAA men’s basketball tournament sportscaster Billy Packer will talk about this year’s tournament, since apparently Bloomberg feels that there are no more pressing topics in the world today.
