Last week we were short, this week, we make it up to you. We've got a full house with all three of our hosts and guests WaPo blogger Jennifer Rubin and The Weekly Standard's Matt Continetti. We run the table with chats about the budget battles, a very heated discussion about the Middle East, a presidential roundtable, and Peter Robinson parties hearty in D.C. and spills the beans.
