Whiner In Chief: “We Need To Control Spending”
In a speech yesterday to the Brookins Institute, President Obama stated that “One of the central goals of the administration is restoring fiscal responsibility, “ he continued, “ Even as we have had to spend our way out of this recession in the near term, we have begun to make the hard choices necessary to get our country on a more stable fiscal footing.” Sean laughably responded, “Earth to Obama – what universe are you living in?” The stimulus program is hardly putting us on a more stable fiscal footing and government paid health care certainly isn’t making “hard choices.” Even yesterday Obama tried to put blame on President Bush by saying, “For decades, we’ve watched as efforts to solve tough problems have fallen pretty to the bitterness of partisanship.” Is he really still trying to blame President Bush? Perhaps he really is The Whiner-in-Chief.
Dick Morris: GOP Really Can Win!
Dick started the show by saying, “Conservatives need to take a deep breath and congratulate ourselves, though the healthcare bill is still horrible, but to have the liberals shed the public option is a real achievement.” Sean retorted, “I’m not convinced this is for real.” Sean pressed Morris to make some predictions on the 2010 elections, “I’m proposing a new contract with America, but why do you think the Senate is in play?” Morris replied, “There’s a lot of low hanging fruit.” Morris then spent some time outlining the different races in play. His main push though for today was to have all New Yorkers call Congressman Peter King’s office in order to urge him to run for Senate in New York. “He’s a really good candidate and I urge all New Yorkers to reach out to Congressman King and urge him to run for Senate.”
Tiger Woods: A Race Issue?
Sean was joined on the NewsMaker hotline by Stephen A. Smith and S.E. Cupp who debated on whether Tiger Woods latest scandals are racially driven. Author Eugene Robinson wrote in his last op-ed piece for the Washington Post, “What’s with the whole Barbie thing, it is really striking how much the women who’ve been linked to Woods resemble one another. I’m talking about the long hair, the body type.” Sean pointed to this article and suggested Robinson was injecting racial issues into the scandal. S.E. Cupp responded, “Robinson is simply injecting race into a place it doesn’t belong.” “Of course he’s injecting race,” argued Smith, “what he’s not saying in the column is that the reality is white women on a black man effects black women in the black community.”
As a leading journalist, Stephen A. Smith has been up close and personal with the world's premier athletes, celebrities and newsmakers.
