Part 1

We begin with the president’s challenge to House Speaker Boehner to allow a vote to end the government shutdown and the surreal spectacle of a Republican congressman blaming a park ranger for the government closure. An expert on campaigns, elections and political advertizing Lynn Vavreck, a professor of political science at UCLA and co-author of the new book “The Gamble: Choice and Chance in the 2012 Election”, joins us to discuss the tyranny of the minority as the Tea Party holds the nation hostage while threatening to tank the economy.

Then we speak with Graham Fuller, the former vice chairman of the National Intelligence Council at the CIA about his article at Global Viewpoint “Has Obama (Inadvertently) Broken the Mould in U.S. Foreign Policy”. We discus the unraveling of American exceptionalism, American unilateralism, America as the world policeman and architect of world order as Obama backs away from the brink of a new war with Syria and opens up a dialogue with Iran.
