- The Washington Times - Thursday, August 27, 2009


If 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 some of Wednesday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

c Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell, a Democrat: The Democratic Party and Capitol Hill won’t be the same without Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat who served in the Senate for 47 years and died of brain cancer late Tuesday night. Meanwhile, as the owner of two rescued dogs, the governor said he was initially upset by Michael Vick’s return to professional football with the Philadelphia Eagles, but he now concedes that all ex-prisoners, including convicted animal abusers, deserve a second chance to live and work in society.

c Dore Gold, Israel’s former permanent representative to the United Nations: President Obama, he warned, must act immediately to stop the development of a “nuclear Iran.”

c Matthew Vadum, Capital Research Center senior editor: The White House appears to be behind a political effort to erase the memory of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks by converting 9/11 into a national day of service, including community organizing on environmental issues.

c Jim Towey, president of St. Vincent College in Pennsylvania: The former director of the White House Office of Faith-Based Initiatives detailed efforts by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to advocate the controversial 52-page “Your Life, Your Choices” document.
