Herman Cain was Michael Savage’s guest for an exclusive interview. Savage asked him if he’d accept the vice presidential spot if he didn’t get his party’s nomination for president.
Cain replied that if rival Mitt Romney offered him the position, he’d decline (FREE audio), explaining, “I like him as a business man, if he gets it, I am going to support him, but I have to work with someone that I could compliment, not someone that wants to put me in a role that I would not want to do.”
As Obama departed on yet another vacation, Savage wondered why the president always badmouths his country when he travels abroad: “What is this psychological quirk in the president’s thinking? What happened to him as a child that made him such an America hater?
“I started asking this question a long time ago. Now other people have dug things up that are frightening. According to one journal, ‘Obama’s family tree is replete with the unbalanced’”:
Everyone was talking about Herman Cain fumbling of some questions during a meeting with reporters. Rush Limbaugh came to Cain’s defense, explaining to listeners that, in fact, it was the Journal-Sentinel editorial board that got some of its “facts” wrong, not Cain (FREE webcam).
After Occupy Wall Street protesters were finally evicted from New York’s Zuccotti Park, Limbaugh was delighted: “Okay, so the good news is that the cops have finally liberated Zuccotti Park from the Occupy army, occupation army of these lousy hippies, thieves, rapists, purse snatchers, muggers who were camped out there. The bad news is that they’re now back out on the streets. And in New York who’s gonna notice the difference?”
Mitt Romney called in to Hannity’s show to talk about current events, particularly the Occupy Wall Street protests, and reports that progressive activists were planning to “firebomb Macy’s” department store (FREE audio).
After what many called a fatal gaffe in a recent televised debate, would-be GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry joined Hannity to talk about how he handled his “brain freeze” with humor (FREE audio).
As he started to rise in the polls, Newt Gingrich spoke with Mark Levin. The candidate was eager to clear up what he called some misconceptions about his positions on issues such as “cap and trade” and his highly paid consulting work for Freddie Mac (FREE audio).
This week, it was announced that Levin’s next book will be out in the middle of January 2012. Entitled “Ameritopia,” it promises to examine “the unmaking of America” at the hands of utopian progressives.
With other stories making headlines, the congressional “supercommittee” hasn’t been getting the same level of attention. Laura Ingraham countered that by inviting Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, to talk about what the committee is, and isn’t, accomplishing.
Author Peter Schweitzer’s new book, “Throw Them All Out,” calls on the American people to denounce the many corrupt politicians in Congress, who he accuses of insider trading and other malfeasance. He joined Laura to talk about his allegations.
Two candidates for president, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, rounded out the week (FREE audio).
Glenn Beck, like many Americans, was shocked by how poorly Penn State coach Rick Sandusky handled himself during an interview with Bob Costas. Beck and his on-air crew performed their version of how the interview should have played out (FREE webcam).
During a phone call to Beck’s show, the director of a Colorado shelter for abused women told him they’d just “lost $55,000 in federal funding after the group refused to drop its practice of mandatory Bible study for residents.” In response, Beck and his wife sent the shelter a personal check to cover the loss.
And now, from the left side of the dial …
Think progressives have finally tired of blaming George W. Bush for everything? Not on your life.
Believe it or not, this week Al Sharpton found a way to blame the former President for … the Penn State child sex abuse scandal (FREE audio).
As always, Brian Maloney of the Radio Equalizer blog sets the record straight: “The truth: In 1990, President George H. W. Bush’s foundation named Sandusky’s non-profit one of his ‘points of light.’ That was many years before any of these horrible revelations had emerged.”
“But,” as Maloney adds, “why let the truth get in the way of a good bit of slander?”
