On Slate's Political Gabfest, John Dickerson, David Plotz, and Emily Bazelon discuss whats going on in the world. In a discussion about the situation in Egypt, they discuss how Egypt's leader Mubarak show's no sign of stepping down from being the leader of Egypt, the health care bill being declared unconstitutional and U.S. ambassador to China Jon Huntsman resigning and becoming a potential 2012 Republican candidate.
The discussion about Egypt they talk about Mubarak and how he is showing no signs of stepping down as leader of Egypt and that he has assigned new people to his cabinet instead. They also discussed how Mubarak has hired "thugs" to attack protesters and cause more violence but it is said that it is not true and Mubarak isn't involved. Mubarak seems as if he has lost total control over the situation and yet has not found a solution to this problem, like they say " Give the people what they want!"
The big story in America is about the Health care bill and that judges have declared the bill unconstitutional to force Americans to purchase health care. But two democratic judges have declared that there is nothing wrong with the bill and two Republican judges have declared it unconstitutional. It is very obvious that Republicans are not for the health care bill and it shows, How can two parties decide on something that they don't agree on in the first place? Also, how can two decide its unconstitutional and two others decide it isn't? There is a lot that needs to be figured out before something as big as Health care is thrown into the trash.
The discussion of the 2012 Republican candidates is a big topic with Sarah Palin and others that are potential candidates. One is Jon Hutchman, the former U.S. ambassador to China, has chosen to resign and the rumor is he is considering running for Presidency. Some say, "is he just tired of China or is he running for President?" What makes someone. a U.S. ambassador one day and decides to resign all of a sudden? The 2012 election is real important and serious, we'll just have to wait and see...
