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. We’ll post a wrap-up here on the blog on Monday.

For Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson (NBC’s Meet The Press): American has lost nearly 500,000 jobs so far this year, and some economic analysts expect another 500,000 will be lost before the year is out.

After eight years of failed conservative economic policy, shouldn’t the Bush Administration change course and launch a job-creating public investment strategy?

For Karl Rove (CBS’ Face The Nation): Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Ron Suskind published a new book with fresh evidence that the White House ordered the creation of a forged letter to fabricate a tie between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda, and that the White House had information from a top Iraqi official before the war that there were no WMD.

Without engaging in character assassination, are you able to disprove these charges?

For McCain campaign manager Rick Davis (Fox News Sunday): You lobbied on behalf of a German conglomerate that owns DHL so it could acquire Airbone Express. Now, DHL is planning on cutting at least 10,000 jobs in Wilmington, Ohio.

Do you think your lobbying work on behalf of multinational corporations has helped the American economy?
