God in Politics and Mistakes in Iraq-on the Radio1

Jim Brown Audio Player
Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

We will get a live report from the Republican National  Convention in Tampa this weekend on our weekly “Common Sense“ radio show.  Let’s hope Hurricane Isaac doesn’t spoil the show.  Poor Mitt Romney has had a tough enough wek, as you can read in my new column.  Go to the Flashing Red Box above to read the column. 

Charged with rebuilding Iraq, would you spend taxpayer money on a sports mural in Baghdad’s most dangerous neighborhood to promote reconciliation through art? How about an isolated milk factory that cannot get its milk to market? Or a pastry class training women to open cafés on bombed-out streets without water or electricity? According to Peter Van Buren, in his new book We Meant Well,we bought all these projects and more in the most expensive hearts-and-minds campaign since the Marshall Plan.  He will join us in the first hour of our weekend show.  You can read all about his book by Clicking Here.

 We will also talk with Professor Niels Nielson about his new book, God in the Obama Era. Nielson offers penetrating analyses of twenty presidents from Washington to Obama, and will discuss with us the place of religion in American history and culture, or religion in the Obama campaign and presidency. Check out his book by Clicking Here.

And how do you make any sense out of this  Medicare debate?  Republicans say one thing and Democrats saying something completely different.  What’s the straight information?  University of North Carolina Professor Jonathan Oberlander, an expert in the Medicare area, will join us to answer these questions.  His book, Political Life of Medicare, is  answers many questions, and you can find out more about it by Clicking Here.

This and much more on our weekend nationally syndicated program.  Be sure and tune in.  We will see you on the radio!
