Radio hosts, Matt Dunn and Krista Kafer, will offer their commentary on events both cultural and political.
Their guest will be "Charles R. Kesler, a senior fellow of the Claremont Institute and professor of government at Claremont McKenna College. We'll discuss his brilliant new book I Am the Change: Barack Obama and the Crisis of Liberalism.
Kesler's lively analysis shows where the president fits into the "liberal" tradition of American politics dating back to 19th Century. How does Obama want to "transform" America? Why do both his supporters and his opponents misunderstand Obama? Is American liberalism on its last legs or about to be reborn?
And what will be President Obama's legacy? Here's a hint-- Obama's policies on health care, taxation and regulation have pushed America further toward the European model of social democracy. As aging European welfare states (think Greece) presently hit the wall of deficits and debt, Obama's outrageous spending habits are hastening our own encounter with the wall.
Meanwhile, the new Census Bureau report paints a grim picture of America 2012: Median household income falling, some 2.3 million more Americans on Medicaid, and a record 46.2 million Americans living in poverty. All this under a president who once said, "Let's be the generation that ends poverty in America."
When you consider that a record 45 million Americans are now on food stamps and a record 11 million are collecting federal disability checks - things aren't pretty these days.
This week four Americans lost their lives in Libya, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, when violent protests erupted across North Africa ostensibly over a lame, low-budget film. While the blame sits squarely with the murderers and their twisted excuses, some are wondering if the incoherent foreign policy from this administration has emboldened radical elements abroad.
On the bright side, Russian scientists are planning to clone a wooly mammoth from frozen mammoth tissue. We've got more hope for this Jurassic Park adventure than for what lies ahead under this president."
