On GPS Sunday: Fareed speaks with Colin Powell and Pulitzer winner Robert Caro

On Fareed Zakaria GPS on Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET, Fareed speaks with former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell about what to do in Syria, how to tackle Iran and its nuclear program, and the state of politics in the United States – is partisanship in Washington really as bad as its ever been?

Also on the show is two-time Pulitzer Prize winning author Robert Caro, who has spent more than three decades researching, thinking about, and writing on the life of President Lyndon Baines Johnson as part of his epic series of books on the 36th U.S. president. A web extra with Caro discussing the Civil Rights Act is available here.

And Fareed will also be looking at the underlying dynamics shaping the presidential election. Is it all about the economy, or are there other major factors that will decide the next American president?

    Why do you keep having Caro on over and over so that he can make LBJ look like Lincoln? Caro leaves out that LBJ kept us in Vietnam, and ruined the country economically when he tried to finance the Vietnam War and the Great Society at the same time. Johnson was a brutal politician, not a lovable Southern uncle.

    I had set my DVR to record Fareed the last couple of weeks and couldn't figure out why he wasn't on until I did a little research. Yippee, he's back but I'm still hunting for that human rights report card on America by China.

    Except Fareed in CNN, everybody else are reporters. The kind of intellectualism Fareed brings, the depth of international exposure is beyond compare with anybody in US Media. The articulation of complex issues are excellent. I am glad, he is back.

    Two things:

    Can I get a text of Colin Powell's interview?

    For all fans of LBJ ... Just saw a brilliant play in Ashland Or called "All The Way" not sure if there are plans to travel nationwide, but if so, don't miss it. It's said that in his first year as President, Johnson signed The Civil Rights Bill, The War on Poverty, The Right To Vote Act and Medicare. It 's thought that most of this wouldn't have been passed without the passing of JFK and a sympathic bi-partisan vote. Pretty amazing!

    Dear Sir,

    Have you read the NY times article on how Romney, through bane, purchase HCA?? If not I suggest you research this. It will show you a clear picture of how Gov. Romney intended to run Mass. he alt care system through Bane and HCA who as you know has been caught violating the law many times. In his backing of purchasing HCA, He and his friends(the Frists) made billions of dollars. Check it out if you don't believe me. Here's the link http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/15/business/hca-giant-hospital-chain-creates-a-windfall-for-private-equity.html?partner=rss&emc=rss. Do you have the stones to do some real reporting/I hope so.
