Inside Washington - Aug. 5, 2012

      ABC7’s Gordon Peterson moderates Inside Washington with panelists: Colbert King of The Washington Post, syndicated columnist Mark Shields, Politico contributor Evan Thomas and syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer, in a discussion of these topics:

      • The jobless rate jumps up to 8.3 percent .
      • Mitt Romney’s trip abroad—a success, despite some well-publicized gaffes?
      • Despite a great deal of unfinished business, Congress takes a five-week break—economists see cliff-edge looming.
      • The Chick-fil-A gay marriage controversy sparks protests (and sells lots of fried chicken).
      • Charles Krauthammer wins an apology from the White House—subject: the whereabouts of the Churchill bust.
