Part 1

We begin with an analysis of how bad things could get for Mitt Romney as the slow drip about his tenure at Bain Capital, how much money he made, what taxes he paid, and how much of his wealth has been hidden continues. Jacob Heilbrunn, a Senior Editor at The National Interest joins us to discuss this, as well as news that Romney’s biggest Super PAC donor Sheldon Adelson might be in big trouble. jacob heilbrunn

Part 2

Then we look into the “jobs” and “job creator” narrative that has been and presumably will be again, a central issue in this year’s presidential campaign. The Editor-in-Chief of the Washington Monthly magazine Paul Glastris joins us to discuss how the lack of jobs did not create the great recession that has wiped out 40% of the average family’s wealth, and that the campaign should be about how the middle class can get out from under ruinous debt and rebuild its wealth.

She joins us to discuss mini-skirts, Mickey Mouse and the mysterious woman accompanying the boy emperor.
