The Tuesday Outlook

Rep. Anthony Weiner's news conference hasn't made the story go away. The debate over his fate rages on. And so do the tawdry details, which we'll have in appropriate measure tonight.One thing that caught my eye today was the juxtaposition of two stories. As Ezra Klein writes, the departure of economic adviser Austan Goolsbee might be due to the simple fact that economic advice is irrelevant in an era when none of it is actionable. At the same time, we have new poll finding that President Obama is getting absolutely hammered on the economy. read more

The Monday Outlook

06/06/11 03:02PM

The first thing you'll notice on The Ed Show tonight, of course, is that Ed is back. And the day's big political issue? Jobs. We learned Friday about May's crappy job numbers, and much of the weekend was spent in political debate about their meaning. One question -- whether this recovery qualifies as a jobless recovery. Technically, no. Jobs are being created. A lot of jobs, when you factor out all the jobs government is self-destructively shedding thanks to the bizarre no-spending-therefore-no-tax-hikes mantra of the Putting Money First crowd. read more
