Obama Renews Focus on Economy as Partisan Battles Loom

Hosted by

After months of debate about gun control, immigration and government spying, President Obama has begun an effort to turn Washington’s attention back to the economy.  We’ll hear about today’s first speech in a new public relations campaign as Republicans take aim at all his priorities, new and old. Also, Egypt's military calls for protests as the US delays F-16s, and Washington, DC is being called a “gilded capitol” where politicians and media figures form a celebrity culture that influences national policy.  We’ll talk with the author of a new book on insiders called This Town.
