Valley Forge Moment?
Rose Tennent from America's Morning Show with Quinn and Rose ably filled in for a vacationing Sean and immediately sparked emotions when she covered a story about the Occupy Wall Street movement. "A little over a week ago the Occupy Wall Street protestors learned of the season's first snow," began Tennent, "When they heard of that, they said this is then our Valley Forge moment." Angrily, Tennent continued, "They can't possibly imagine a Valley Forge moment. The men at Valley Forge didn't have a fancy chef, there were no iPods or iPads and they didn't have $500,000 in a bank somewhere." As we celebrate Veteran's Day in the United States, reading headlines like this can certainly spark an array of emotions. Rose's anger and emotion as well as her reverence for those who served really came through today. To listen to the real Valley Forge moment from Rose, click here.
Michelle Bachmann on Occupy Wall Street
Presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann shared details of her recent campaign event that made headlines when Occupy Wall Street protestors forced her to stop speaking and evacuate the room she was in . "The Occupy Wall Street protestors completely took over the room and police brought me out for safety, "explained Bachmann, "But the real question is, what do they want, and I believe they want the United States to embrace socialism." Bachmann continued, "I completely oppose everything they stand for." As Rose reminded the audience, on the day we set aside to remember the men and women who've dedicated their lives to protecting America's freedom and way of life, it's disappointing to read stories of those who're ashamed to live here.
