America’s Morning News
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 Thursday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:
c Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele: During Wednesday’s prime-time press conference, President Obama failed to educate Americans about proposed health care reform measures and convince them that a crisis genuinely exists, Mr. Steele said.
If successful, the Democratic leadership’s overhaul of health care would amount to “socialism,” the RNC chief said.
In addition, Mr. Steele confirmed that his official vehicle’s D.C. license plates now bear the protest slogan “Taxation Without Representation,” and he challenged Mr. Obama to have the plates on the White House’s fleet of vehicles changed as well. The slogan appeals for voting representation in Congress for D.C. residents.
c Michael Karolchyk, chief executive officer of the California-based Anti-Gym: The highly outspoken, “in-your-face” health club director said President Obama’s choice for surgeon general, Dr. Regina Benjamin, is too “chubby” to fill the post and sets a very poor example for lazy Americans who don’t exercise regularly or eat properly.
Mr. Karolchyk described Dr. Benjamin as being a “size 18,” adding that he was being “generous.”
c Matthew Burden, chairman of the Warrior Legacy Foundation: Mr. Burden said there is more to the disappearance and resurfacing in Afghanistan of Army Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl of Idaho.
Mr. Burden, a prominent blogger on military issues, said the American soldier reportedly left a note at his base explaining that he was going into the mountains to find himself.
Pfc. Bergdahl, who is being held captive by the Taliban, appeared recently in a video appealing to Americans to secure his release and bring him home.
