Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Cheat Sheet

George Wenschhof

The discussion Sunday morning will focus on the looming sequester.  Only, one week remains before the automatic cuts cut in and politicos will weigh in on their effects and what should be done.

In what is becoming a familar pairing, Governors Martin O'Malley (D-Md.) and Bob O'Donnell (R-Va.) will appear on CBS "Face The Nation".  They will give their thoughts on the impact of the spending cuts will have on states.

CBS "Face The Nation" will also examine the relationship between gun violence and video game playing with psychologist and Congressman Tim Murphy, R-Penn., National Alliance on Mental Illness Executive Director Michael Fitzpatrick, Parents Television Council President Tim Winter, former FBI profiler Mary Ellen O'Toole and Texas A&M International's Chris Ferguson.

Chuck Hagel is expected to finally receive confirmation by the Senate this week for Defense Secretary, but not before senator John McCain (R-Az.) squares off against senator Pat Leahy (D-Vt.) on CNN "State of The Union".

ABC "This Week" will take on the cyber threat from China with House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., and Foreign Affairs Committee ranking member Rep. Eliot Engel D-NY.

Louisiana Republican Governor Bobby Jindal, who flubbed the GOP reponse to the state of the union address by President Obama a year ago, has to be feeling better after watching an equally horrific performance by senator Marco Rubio.

Jindal has been critical of the Republican party, saying they need to change and quit being"the stupid party".  He must of read the recent polls which show only 1 of 5 Americans indentify themselves as republicans.  Jindal appears on NBC "Meet The Press", where he will match up with Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (D).
