    You’ve been playing politics for more than a year.  We’ve heard everything there is to hear.  You can’t find even one hour for a Neil Armstrong tribute?

    I wasn’t able to tune in at 10 like usual. I tried to play the episode from your site as I’ve done in the past, but there is no link that I can find. Will you not be posting this show in the archive? =(

  • Miranda Van Slooten

    It’s fixed now, thanks.

    How can your guest say that Obama has not done anything on immigration and did not reach out to Republicans. The Dream Act passed but was filibustered in the senate and he offered many Republican ideas on health care, i.e. the insurance mandate.  Of course he didn’t talk to John Boehner for 5 months, everything he said to the Republicans the were immediate opposed to even their own ideas. How could he succeed when the Republican leader in the senate said their primary goal was to make him a one term president.

    Based on the things he has done in office, Barak Obama is the most conservative Democratic President in history.
