- The Washington Times - Friday, August 21, 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 Thursday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Ellis Henican, columnist for Newsday: Mr. Henican said it is “backbone,” not backpedaling, that we are witnessing in President Obama as he continues his push for government-run health care.

• Syndicated columnist Nat Hentoff, who wrote for the Village Voice from 1957 to 2008: Mr. Hentoff said he was not intimidated during J. Edgar Hoover’s hunt for reporters who, like him, were critical of the FBI’s top official; and he railed against the George W. Bush administration’s war on the Bill of Rights without blinking. But with the advent of “Obamacare,” Mr. Hentoff said he is finally “scared” of a White House administration.

• Stephen Baldwin, Hollywood actor and activist: Mr. Baldwin said it’s not out of the question that his older brother, actor Alec Baldwin, will wind up in politics one day - rumored to be interested in the U.S. Senate seat held by Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent. The youngest of the Baldwin brothers similarly acknowledged his interest in public service and elective office.

• Gary Bauer, former presidential candidate and president of American Values: Beware of socialized medicine exactly for what it is: utilitarian medicine, Mr. Bauer said.
