After the beating Democrats took in last week's mid-term elections, all eyes, including those of our managing producer, Noel King, will be looking at what the GOP's initial moves will be this week. She'll also look at President Obama's continued trip through Asia, along with Charlie Herman, business and economics editor for The Takeaway and WNYC Radio.

President Obama will finish his trip in India, make an address to the Indian Parliament, and then head next for Indonesia, followed by the G20 summit in South Korea.  He will likely confront criticism from the international community on U.S. economic policies, including the Fed's recent decision to make large purchases of Treasury securities.

Guests:

Charlie Herman and Noel King

Produced by:

David J Fazekas

Please, John, if you are going to twice refer to Keith Olbermann as a "blowhard liberal commentator" do the same for Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh when you refer to them. I've not heard you refer to them as blowhards which, while it may describe Keith or Glenn or Rush, is to me perjorative and frustrating when applied just to one side and not to all of these types. Yes I'm a liberal so some may see this as one-sided but I am tired of the left being demonized and it's voice being marginalized. Thanks
