The Bush administration unleashed a new rhetorical offensive this week to win back public support for the war on terrorism, likening the nation's current enemies to fascists and Nazis, but will it be enough to stem growing public opposition to the war effort in Iraq? With increasing indications that public displeasure with Bush administration and Republican policies may lead to a Democratic Senate takeover in November, what can the GOP do to hold on to its majority and what do Democrats have to do to maintain the momentum? For insights and analysis we have an exclusive interview with the two Senate campaign chairmen, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC).
And as legislators get set to return to work from Congressional recess this week, we will take a look at immigration and the President's federal judicial appointments, two issues that will likely top the Senate's agenda. Will the House and Senate be able to forge a compromise on immigration legislation before the November elections and what chances do the latest Bush federal court appointments have of passing through the Senate? For answers we will turn to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA).
Our Fox News Sunday panel will then provide its analysis of the Iranian decision to continue with uranium enrichment past the U.N. deadline and where U.S. Middle East policy goes from here. The Sunday panel will include Fox News Managing Editor Brit Hume, Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol, NPR Senior National Correspondent Juan Williams and New York Times Reporter Elisabeth Bumiller.
Finally, Washington Redskins Head Coach Joe Gibbs, is currently readying his team for the start of the NFL season next week, but it's his second group of students that makes him our power player of the week.
