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 Obama economic adviser and former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin (CBS’ Face The Nation): The Washington Post recently chronicled how you fought attempts to regulate modern financial instruments during your tenure as Treasury Secretary. Will you take some responsibility for the current financial crisis that came about because of deregulation?

For Sen. John McCain (NBC’s Meet The Press) or McCain economic adviser and former Congressional Budget Office director Doug Holtz-Eakin (CBS’ Face The Nation): Why are you attacking Obama’s refundable tax credits to incentivize work, saving, home ownership and education as “welfare” when you support refundable tax credits as part of your health care plan?

For former General Electric CEO Jack (ABC’s This Week): In January 2008, you said we were not heading into recession, even if it might feel like it, but we would “weather this thing” because the “global economy will keep us alive.”

Why are you on TV offering economic expertise?
