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 Rudy Giuliani (NBC’s Meet The Press): You said at the Republican National Convention that you, like other conservatives have lately, support an “all of the above” approach to energy.

The House leadership and a bipartisan group of Senators are advocating “all of the above” bills that allow for more coastal drilling, and also make oil companies pay their fair share of taxes and royalties so we can invest in clean energy. Yet conservative leaders, who claim to support an “all of the above” approach, vehemently oppose the compromise proposals out of loyalty to the interests of oil companies.

Will you follow through on your statement of principle, or will you stand with oil company interests and reject these “all of the above” proposals?

For RNC Victory Chairman Carly Fiorina (ABC’s This Week):WATCHDOG CLASSIC QUESTION!: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 Gov. Janet Napolitano (D-Ariz.), Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), former Gov. Jane Swift (R-Mass.), Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.): (CBS’ Face The Nation): Can you accurately portray yourself as a fighter against sexism if you don’t support legislation like the Fair Pay Act — filibustered this year by conservative Senators — that would give women the ability to fight pay discrimination?
