- The Washington Times - Tuesday, October 6, 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 three of Monday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Steve Forbes, former Republican presidential candidate and editor-in-chief of Forbes magazine: The nation’s unemployment rate, which stands at 9.8 percent, won’t improve overnight, Mr. Forbes said. The current unemployment rate is the worst since June 1983 and spells bad news for all sectors of the economy, including retail businesses that face flat sales this holiday shopping season.

• Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council: Mr. Perkins called on President Obama’s so-called “safe-schools czar” - Kevin Jennings - to resign amid revelations that, among other radical positions, he promoted homosexuality in the nation’s elementary schools. The Family Research Council has launched www.stopjennings.org.

• Texas Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate: Endorsed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and RedState.com, Mr. Williams is the highest ranking black in statewide Texas politics. He said President Obama disappointed Americans by not following through on his campaign pledge for an all-out fight against terrorism in Afghanistan. He also disagreed with former President Jimmy Carter’s contention that some conservative opposition to Mr. Obama is based on “race.”
