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 several of Thursday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

- David Rivkin, partner at Baker Hostetler LLP: Debate on health care reform must include the question of whether it’s “constitutional” for the federal government to require that every American have health insurance.

- Todd J. Zywicki, George Mason University professor of law: Since the beginning of his term, President Obama’s personal popularity has exceeded that of his policies - a gap that was not likely to last long. Now, as the health care debate unfolds, his approval numbers are eroding.

- Wayne Allen Root, 2008 Libertarian Party vice-presidential nominee: Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke is the perfect sidekick for what Mr. Root dubbed as President Obama’s socialism plan, given he prints money out of thin air.

- Jonathan Hoenig, managing member CapitalistPig LLC: Some sectors of the economy are seeing improvement, others are not. Meanwhile, unemployment and the budget deficit worsen.

- Danny Tarkanian, Republican Senate primary candidate from Nevada: He’s not afraid of challenging Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, and even has good reason to be optimistic. The political newcomer is ahead of the incumbent Democrat by 11 percentage points in one poll.
