This week, the euro zone nations agreed to a pact to deal with the ongoing debt crisis, but the U.K. will not be taking part. Newt Gingrich's comments about child labor continued to dominate the headlines. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin accused U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of instigating protests over alleged voter fraud there. And Donald Trump once again became the focus of the Republican primary field as candidates slowly dropped out of a Newmax-sponsored debate he was to moderate.

Joining The Takeaway panel is Jeff Yang, writer of the Tao Jones column for The Wall Street Journal and blogger for WNYC's It’s a Free Country; Farai Chideya, journalist and blogger at Farai.com; and Ron Christie, Republican political strategist, CEO of Christie Strategies, and former special assistant to President George W. Bush.

The last time "people pointed fingers at Britain" was when they declined to scrap the pound in favor of the euro. Was that a good idea after all?
No mention of the dumb "restart" toy Sec. Clinton posed with along with the Russian foreign minister as a nasty swipe against the Bush administration. How did that "restart" work out along with the alienation of our allies in Eastern Europe?

As the panel smugly focuses on the "level right now of the GOP's dialogue" why does the level of the left's dialogue always focus on skin color even when discussing voluntary work opportunities for students in their own school? Why is the Democratic Party now in its third century of exploiting race for division and political gain for themselves?
