Weekend Watchdog

Bill Scher

Every Friday in our Weekend Watchdog feature, we post suggested questions for scheduled Sunday guests. You can add your own questions in the comment thread. We’ll also include contact information for the shows, so we can let them know what their viewers want asked.

May 11 will be the last Sunday that Air America Radio’s “Seder on Sundays” will air live, so it will be the last time we do the Weekend Watchdog Wrap-Up on-air. But we will continue to offer the wrap-up right here on the blog every week. Tune in 4 PM ET this Sunday!

For McCain campaign adviser Carly Fiorina (ABC’s This Week): Let’s revisit one of last week’s unanswered questions.

You have previously said that the off-shoring of American jobs should be called “right-shoring,” and that “there is no job that is America’s God-given right anymore.”

As Sen. McCain is a staunch defender of our current trade and global economic strategy that has contributed to the loss of 3.4 million manufacturing jobs, and is putting 40 million service jobs at risk of offshoring, does he share your comfort level with the continued loss of American jobs?

For Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (ABC’s This Week): The ACLU sent out an alert to its members this past week, saying “House leadership is on the precipice of caving in and handing over everything the President has demanded: expanded surveillance powers, and immunity for big phone companies that broke the law.”

Soon after that, on Wednesday, Politico reported, “Although it remains to be seen if congressional Democrats will accept the telecom companies’ proposal, the communication between the two sides signifies that progress is being made.”

Do you know the contents of this proposed deal, and would you support it if it grants immunity to the telecom companies?

For former Senator John Edwards (CBS’ Face The Nation): You have a new anti-poverty initiative that sets a goal of cutting poverty in half over the next 10 years. What’s in it?
