This Sunday: Vice President Joe Biden said this week he thinks the U.S. will experience more attempted terror attacks like the one on Christmas Day. But where are these threats coming from? And is the government prepared to stop them?
Plus, Senate Democrats pare down the bipartisan jobs bill, as White House economics advisers predict weak job growth for the rest of the year. So how long will it take to get all those Americans who want jobs back to work? We’ll get answers from Vice President Joe Biden, who joins us from the site of the Vancouver Olympics.
Then, after a number of Democrats and Republican Congressmen announce plans to retire this year, where does each party stand as the 2010 midterm elections near?
Will President Obama’s falling poll numbers impact the contests? And where does each side now stand on health care reform, the economy and foreign policy?
We’ll have insights on it all from our roundtable: The New York Times’ David Brooks and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow; plus two political insiders — Fmr. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (D-TN) and Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL).
David Gregory is the moderator of “Meet the Press.” Betsy Fischer is the executive producer. Rebecca Samuels and Chris Donovan are the producers.
