On Sunday on "This Week" the President's top political adviser, David Axelrod, sits down with anchor Jake Tapper. With stimulus money running out, the economy continues to limp along and Congress shows little willingness to spend more money to ease the pain. Is the President running out of options and are Democrats running out of time to change the dynamic for the November mid-terms? How will the Obama Administration's challenge to Arizona's immigration law impact the political landscape?

Then, Rep. Brian Bilbray (R-CA), Chairman of the Immigration Reform Caucus and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Task Force on Immigration, face off in a This Week debate on the Arizona immigration law. They will discuss whether other states will follow Arizona's lead and whether the debate over immigration is a political winner for Democrats or Republicans.

And on the round table, Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post, The National Review's Reihan Salam, Ron Brownstein of the National Journal and ABC's George Will take on the immigration discussion. They'll also discuss Sarah Palin's Mama Grizzly video and whether it's her first foray into 2012 presidential politics along with the rest of the week's politics.

Ian Cameron is the executive producer of This Week. The program airs Sundays on the ABC Television Network (check local listings).

As hard working legal U.S. Citizens, we refuse (anymore) to commit to a political party as they are all up that proverbial creek without a paddle. We do, however, believe in the theory that you will never get something for nothing (socialism...share the wealth, it can't happen), which seems to be this administration's mantra. Jake, we appreciate the fact, yourself a democrat (or so it seems), you pushed back a bit on several issues with Axelrod and he sure stuttered and stammered for answers, however unsubstantial they were...and for that we appreciate you. Mainstream media seems to be deep into this administration's pockets, afraid to ask pertinent questions...or maybe "instructed" on which questions to ask? as educated legal Americans we firmly believe the word "transparent" should be scratched from the it doesn't exist anymore in this so-called administration.
Immigration reform is HUGE and needs to be addressed, but legal Americans must remain at the forefront of this administrations mind as we are the one's absorbing the cost of ALL illegals. You may not print this because we feel your president (as hard working, taxpaying, legal Christian citizens...he's made it "perfectly clear" he's not our president) illegal himself (also a muslim as everyone knows, yet he calls us and is getting away with political murder and no one is demanding him to prove himself. We refuse to pay for illegal immigrant babies, food, clothes, education and medical while our/your children and grandchildren are stuck with a monster called national debt that may not be recoverable...if hussein has his way. Print, print, print that money...our dollar has less and less value yet this administration spews economic upswing. Give Us A Break!!! Thank you again, was quite refreshing to watch someone who cares, on mainstream media, that is...although, we would much rather have heard you talk about the Black Panthers than Palin...just saying - it's a much more important issue raising the question "if they weren't prosecuted for their outrageous acts and language, i.e. "crackers" (whites, for those who don't know) and killing cracker babies, can we now call them niggers and expect to be treated the same?" We highly doubt it as racism is worse than ever with this administration creating a divisive canyon in this country. Our own attorney general (being the same race as his boss) chose not to do the right thing, yet again, to set a precedence to acknowledge a sir, not this administration. We can't wait for them to do something that not only reaches across the aisles, but to those of us who are paying "his/their" wages...the LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZEN!!!!
