White House In Panic After Muslim Poll
The White House is in a bit of a panic after a Time Magazine poll found that 1 out of every 4 or 5 Americans believe Obama is a Muslim – a sizeable increase from last year. Conducting damage control, White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters that “the president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day. He communicates with his religious adviser every single day. There's a group of pastors that he takes counsel from on a regular basis. “ Sean wasn’t so sure the White House’s efforts would pay off. “I wonder if Jeremiah Wright is one of [Obama’s religious counselors]? Am I even allowed to ask that question? I wonder if Louis Farrakhan advises him too?" {Article}

JC Watts Vs. Sean
JC Watts joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline and provided some good news – he’ll be able to attend tonight’s Freedom Concert in Oklahoma. Sean, who must not be thinking clearly with all his traveling, challenged the former all-star college quarterback to a football throwing contest at tonight’s concert. Not one to back down from a good challenge, Watts accepted and suggested the loser of the contest should pay $1,000 to a charity of the winner’s choosing. Sean agreed and then changed the topic of conversation to the controversial plans to construct a mosque near ground zero. Watts clarified to Sean and the listening audience that he is a staunch defender of a persons’ right to freedom of religion. However, Watts explained that the mosque issue isn’t really an issue of religious freedom, but one of sensitivity. “Just because you have the right to do something, doesn’t necessarily make it the right thing to do,” Watts explained. “It seems to me, and I say this respectfully, that the people involved with building this seem to be a bit disconnected and a little out of touch with what’s going on. I think a good analogy would be if the Klu Klux Klan wanted to build on private property next to the NAACP headquarters. No one would want that to happen,” said Watts.

Dumping Bush Tax Cuts May Bring Depression
Many economists are concerned about the possibility of a double-dip recession, but former Bank of England official David Blanchflower thinks it could be much worse than that if the Bush tax cuts aren’t extended. “If we don’t act fast, a plunge into Depression is a growing risk in . . . the U.S.,” he wrote in a column on President Barack Obama wants to keep the cuts only for those with income of less than $200,000, while Republicans want the reductions to continue for everyone. Blanchflower argues that tax cuts are the only way to economic growth. “It’s time for tax cuts, which have the added advantage that they work quickly,” Blanchflower advises.
