Before we dive into a Politics Free Week (check out our cool new banner above), the RP got in a few last minute political interviews in the Northwest and Great White North media.
Oregon Live interviewed him about the super-committee tasked with helping to fix the country’s debt problems:
“There was an adult conversation missing” from the debt ceiling debate, said Jonathan Miller, a co-founder of the group No Labels, which wants to restore bipartisanship. The public agrees, according to polls. But with elections approaching and positions fixed, Miller asks, “Will the pressures be too great to present a bi-partisan agreement?”
And later, the RP engaged in his regular gig with CTV News, Canada’s CNN. This occasion, he commented on the weekend’s Iowa straw poll, and other developments in the GOP presidential primary.
