Hot Fudge Sunday May 22nd

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. According to Politico, here is the lineup for this week’s shows:

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)

A week after his budget plan was blistered by Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is back on the show with his take on all the fuss the former House speaker has stirred up.

The congressman will discuss his proposed reforms for Medicare, what to do about the nation’s debt ceiling and his decision not to run for Wisconsin’s open Senate seat in 2012. Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the ranking Democrat on the committee, also sits in on the show’s regular political roundtable.

Meanwhile, Gingrich is back on the Sunday show circuit for the second straight week, this time on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” where he’ll have his chance to address all the fuss that has rocked the launch of his campaign.

Fox News Sunday” has another GOP presidential hopeful, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain, along with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

Dutch Ruppersberger

CNN’s “State of the Union” continues its examination of what a post-Osama bin Laden world holds for U.S. national security with Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and Maryland Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, its ranking Democrat.

Additionally, Michael Oren, the Israeli ambassador to the U.S., and Maen Areikat, the chief representative of the Palestine Liberation Organization to the U.S., handicap the prospects for Middle East peace in the wake of President Barack Obama’s new framework.

And Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.); former House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-Texas); and Vice President Joe Biden’s former chief of staff, Ron Klain, stop by to discuss the ongoing budget talks between Congress and the White House.
