- The Washington Times - Wednesday, September 30, 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 Tuesday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Jed Babbin, editor of Human Events: When it comes to bolstering the U.S. military in Afghanistan, Army Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal is right and President Obama is wrong, Mr. Babbin said. The general’s request for a troop buildup is being “waltzed” around by a confused Obama administration as it ponders its next step, he said.

• Maxim Lott, a freelance writer in New York City: Mr. Lott discussed the latest Obama administration “czar” outrage, which he broke on the Fox News Channel. He reported about a 15-year-old high school sophomore who had told his teacher that an “older man” had had sex with him, suggesting that a case of statutory rape occurred several years ago but was never reported to authorities. That teacher, Kevin Jennings, is now Mr. Obama’s “safe school czar.”

• Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former director of the Congressional Budget Office: Mr. Holtz-Eakin asked who would pay for the Senate Finance Committee’s version of health care reform, then answered his own question. Every American, he said, including millions who wouldn’t be able to afford it.

• Sen. James M. Inhofe of Oklahoma, the ranking Republican member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee: A re-branded version of global warming legislation will be presented Wednesday by Democratic Sens. Barbara Boxer of California and John Kerry of Massachusetts, but Mr. Inhofe said it would never pass the full Senate.
