On Saturday's show, we'll discuss the politics of the Farm Bill, and proposed cuts to the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program. We'll also examine the charges President Obama and Mitt Romney have leveled at each other over outsourcing. And we'll examine the broader question of the President's re-election strategy, including whether he's focusing closely enough on the middle class.
