THE WASHINGTON TIMES

In case you didn’t tune into The Washington Times’ nationally syndicated radio show, “America’s Morning News” - heard in Washington on WTNT-AM 570 and coast-to-coast via the Talk Radio Network - here’s what just a few of Tuesday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

- John Leo, former U.S. News & World Report columnist, now senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute: Mr. Leo wondered whether House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who expressed shock at reports that a swastika was displayed at a protest of “Obamacare,” had forgotten that critics of former President George W. Bush, in their swastika-choked marches and rallies, depicted him in a Nazi uniform with a Hitler mustache.

- Former Rep. Ernest Istook, Oklahoma Republican and a distinguished fellow at the Heritage Foundation: As he continued his weeklong series on “Obamacare,” Mr. Istook said that, like it or not, 83 million Americans will be signed up automatically for government-run health care, should it get congressional approval.

- Ryan Frazier, Colorado Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate: A former Navy intelligence analyst who was assigned for five years to the National Security Council, Mr. Frazier said he’s concerned about escalating bloodshed in Afghanistan and about whether sufficient U.S. troops are in place there.
