I find myself not too happy with Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today. It appears that on Wednesday he went on to the liberal talk radio show of Bill Press and said?
BILL PRESS:? Alright, well good for you. You know, we gotta work on that, because they are just shutting down progressive talk from one city after another. All we want is, you know, some balance on the airwaves, that’s all. You know, we’re not going to take any of the conservative voices off the airwaves, but just make sure that there are a few progressives and liberals out there, right?
SENATOR TOM HARKIN (D-IA): Exactly, and that’s why we need the fair — that’s why we need the Fairness Doctrine back.
Yesterday on CNN?s The Situation Room, former first lady Laura Bush, defended President Obama?s speech to students that he will give later today. She told Zain Verjee,
I think that there is a place for the President of the United States to talk to school children and encourage school children, and I think there are a lot of people that should do the same, And that is encourage their own children to stay in school and to study hard and to try to achieve the dream that they have.
Also this morning, Newt Gingrich spoke on the Today show. While he criticized the Presidents Health Care plan, and made a comment that makes sense to me about the bill (I will talk more about it later), he did say that he read the speech that was posted by the White House and hoped that every American school child could see it.
