Regarding the issues of energy and jobs, a Politico article highlighted, “on ‘Meet the Press,’ Santorum said the failure to develop a U.S. energy strategy could not be blamed on Republicans,” while the National Journal wrote, “The country may have just added 227,000 new jobs, but Rick Santorum told NBC’s Meet the Press that if he were elected president he could do better. And he’d start with energy policy.”

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley appeared together on Meet the Press this Sunday to discuss 2012 politics. A Washington Examiner article highlighted McDonnell’s  criticism of President Obama’s economic policies: “McDonnell brushed off the jobs gains, saying they were proof that Republican governors and private companies are the ones driving the economic turnaround and not Obama.” The Washington Post highlighted the dynamic between the two governors on MTP: “Pressed by host David Gregory about McDonnell’s potential value to a Romney ticket, O’Malley said of McDonnell: ‘Oh, I don’t know.
