- The Washington Times - Tuesday, August 18, 2009

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 Monday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Former Sen. Rick Santorum, Pennsylvania Republican: Mr. Santorum said he is not launching an early bid for a 2012 run for the White House, saying that his much-publicized trip to Iowa this fall is about his position as a senior fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center. Meanwhile, Mr. Santorum predicted that Sen. Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania Democrat, would lose his primary battle for re-election.

• Mayor Pat McCrory of Charlotte, N.C.: The long-serving Republican mayor encouraged leaders in Washington to pause and reflect on history before considering action on a possible second stimulus bill to jump-start the economy. Mr. McCrory said the majority of what is contained in the first massive spending bill has yet to reach states and localities, especially for important infrastructure projects.

• Scott Rasmussen, founder and president of Rasmussen Reports: Mr. Rasmussen said poll findings show that 54 percent of the country say approving no health care reform is better than passing what has been proposed in Congress. Meanwhile, President Obama’s polling numbers continue to drop, with 32 percent of the nation’s voters approving of his performance, he said.
