- The Washington Times - Tuesday, November 10, 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 four of Monday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Andy McCarthy, senior fellow at the National Review Institute: Mr. McCarthy, author of “Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad,” said President Obama’s “insensitivity” to Thursday’s killings at Fort Hood, Texas, was outrageous. He referred to the fact that it took the commander in chief several minutes to call attention to the bloodshed during a previously scheduled address to American Indians.

• Marco Rubio, conservative candidate for the U.S. Senate from Florida: Mr. Rubio, who is challenging Gov. Charlie Crist for Florida’s open Senate seat, noted last week’s strong support for a conservative House candidate in upstate New York, saying he can beat his Republican opponent with grass-roots support from the party’s conservative wing.

• Romesh Ratnesar, deputy managing editor of Time magazine: Mr. Ratnesar cited the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall to highlight his book, “Tear Down This Wall: A City, A President and the Speech That Ended the Cold War,” about what he called President Reagan’s “defining moment.”

• Joel Osteen, pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston: Mr. Osteen, pastor of America’s largest church, encouraged listeners severely affected by the recession to “shake off the negative thoughts.” The popular TV preacher said “as long as you’re breathing there’s … purpose in front of you.”
