Air date: 
Tue, 06/22/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Is Oregon an anti-immigrant state? A new study suggests it is.

A study commissioned by a consortium of Northwestern public radio stations says that a majority of Northwesterners -- Oregonians, Washingtonians and Idahoans, or whatever they call themselves -- agree with the anti-immigrant law passed recently in Arizona. In Oregon, that support is at 61 percent.

What does it mean? Is anti-immigrant sentiment more widespread than we thought? And what is that sentiment exactly? Fear, born of cultural ignorance? Economic anxiety? Good ol' racism? A toxic brew of all three? With Joe on vacation, Abe leads the discussion.

Short Description: 
Abe and Joe dive into the murky waters of the ongoing Gulf of Mexico horror show

Abe and Joe dive into the murky waters of the ongoing Gulf of Mexico horror show, and pay appropriate homage to the impeccable free market forces that first caused the disaster, and then failed to remedy it.

Also: President Obama continues his reluctance to seize the populist moment that history has handed him, as oil executives join the ranks of the elite power brokers to whom he has shown deference. Will the Gulf tragedy finally be enough to jolt him from his corporate doldrums?
