Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Lineup

George Wenschhof

Plenty to talk about and some interesting pairings of guests on the Sunday morning "Talking Heads"

The G-8 Summit at Camp David will have concluded with world leaders in Chicago for the start of the NATO conference.

The G-8 discussion will center on the rescue of the Euro Zone and how German Chancellor Merkel's austerity program has come under fire, especially with the election of President Hollande in France and the continued turmoil in Greece.  Also, deserving attention is the $6 Billion international public-private partnership to extend the Green revolution in Africa, where hunger and poverty remains a major issue.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh will appear on CNN "State of The Union".  Getting out of Afghanistan should be discussed.

In addition,Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng was on his way to the U.S. on Saturday, after a brief international incident where he escaped house arrest and sought protection at the U.S. Embassy in China. 

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will appear with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calf.) on ABC "This Week".  Look to see Boehner continue to try to inject raising the debt ceiling into the discussion, even though it will not be needed this year.  He is also sure to bring up there is no approved budget.  Of course, Pelosi will surely point out Republican obstructionism.

More budget talk will follow with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who is chair of the House Budget Committee.  He will appear on Fox News Sunday and NBC "Meet The Press".
Ryan pushed forward several meaningless votes on budgets recently, just for the theactrics and not for substance.

Representative Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and co-sponsor of the Dodd-Frank bill will apear on C-SPAN "Newsmakers".  He will surely rail about how wall street, with Republican help, have blocked implementation of the called for wall street reform, citing the $2 Billion loss reported by JP Morgan Chase.

Campaign "talk" will also take place on CNN "State of The Union" as RNC chair reince Priebus squares off against Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod.
