- The Washington Times - Friday, September 4, 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 several of Thursday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, Kansas Republican and former presidential nominee: President Obama’s scheduled address to a joint session of Congress on health care reform will be just “another speech, not cure,” Mr. Dole said.

He added the Obama administration’s probe into the CIA’s interrogation practices is an “egregious mistake” and will “demoralize” the spy agency. Asked about the future leaders of the Republican Party, Mr. Dole said, “we need another Eisenhower,” suggesting a potential candidate of the caliber of Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, commander of U.S. Central Command.

• Former Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon: Mr. Aldrin talked to “America’s Morning News” high above the streets of Los Angeles from the first German-made zeppelin to fly in America in more than 70 years.

• Heather Higgins, chairman of the Independent Women’s Forum: Ms. Higgins said about 300,000 American women with breast cancer might have died over the past decade if the United States had adopted a British-style government-run health care system.
