Obama’s Basketball Mishap
President Barack Obama got 12 stitches in his lip after being injured during a basketball game, spokesman Robert Gibbs said. "After being inadvertently hit with an opposing player's elbow in the lip while playing basketball with friends and family, the president received 12 stitches today administered by the White House Medical Unit," White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said in a statement. “The real question is this really what happened?” special guest host Mark Simone asked. “We all thought we knew what happened with the Tiger Woods accident last year, but that was only the tip of the iceberg.” Obama, after playing for about ninety minutes, came out of the building where he was playing wearing a short-sleeve T-shirt and gym pants, and was seen dabbing at his mouth with what appeared to be a wad of gauze. A few hours later, reporters saw the president in an upstairs window, pressing something white against his mouth. For more click here.
Col. Oliver North On Border Security
Mark Simone was joined by Col. Oliver North in the show’s second hour to discuss the ongoing controversy surrounding illegal immigration and border security.

Bolton On Kim Jong-Il
Former Ambassador John Bolton joined the program in the last hour of the show to discuss the crisis between North and South Korea. “What they’ve been doing the past two weeks is a long standing pattern of North Korean behavior. They act in a very belligerent fashion and expose various aspects of their ongoing nuclear weapons program. They intimidate South Korea, the United States and Japan and we go to the bargaining table where North Korea walks away with all kinds of tangible, economic and political benefits. From the North Korean point of view it’s a very successful strategy because it’s worked many times before and I think they’re rolling it out again,” Bolton concluded.
