“Every Other Monday: Twenty Years of Life, Lunch, Faith and Friendship” by John Kasich

Email Email Print

Before my wife and I head off to the Laity Lodge, where our friend Mark D. Roberts is part of the leadership team, I’ll be broadcasting from San Antonio’s KLUP 930, and the program will include Mark Steyn (and the transcript of that conversation will be posted here later) Dino Rossi, Newt Gingrich and others. My Townhall.com colleague Carol Platt Liebau will be guest hosting for me tomorrow, and as the portion of the Hill County of Texas where I am headed is not wireless friendly, posting will be light this Father’s Day Weekend. Have a great weekend with your dad or granddad.

I will conclude Thursday’s show with an hour long conversation with former Congressman John Kasich –who many believe will be Ohio’s next governor.

Kasich has a new book out, and it has almost nothing to do with politics. Every Other Monday, Twenty Years of Life, Lunch, Faith and Friendship is the biography a Christian small group of which Kasich has been a member for more than 20 years. It is a remarkable read, and will I think inspire many, many men to either join or renew their commitment to such a spiritual discipline while providing a very practical and inspiring model of what such a group means and how it operates.

Every Other Monday is a great Father’s Day present as well.

Today’s show will get reactions to the president’s speech from Colorado’s next United States senator, Jane Norton as well as the Weekly Standard’s Fred Barnes (who has a great new piece on Washington State’s next United States senator, Dino Rossi) and Commentary’s John Podhoretz.

In hour three I will be talking with one of my law partners, Gary Wolensky, about the new report and website from the Manhattan Institute —TrialLawyersInc.com. Gary is one of the country’s preeminent products liability defense lawyers, and we will focus on the out-of-control tort system in the U.S..

The Morning After “President Obama’s First Oval Office Address”

Email Email Print

My impression, noted below, hasn’t changed after a night’s sleep, and it turns out it was hardly unique. John Hinderaker sums up nicely all of the terrible qualities of the substance –he read it as opposed to watched it– and nearly everyone from the MSNBC gang on the left to Larry Kudlow on the right ripped the horrible delivery as well as the substance.

Even worse, president’s don’t get many of these, and there hopefully won’t be another until after the November elections. (Though the sort of national or international crisis that brings them on may be brewing because of Iran’s attempt to run the Gaza blockade as you read this.)

CNN and the rest of the MSM could barely contain their anticipation as the curtain rose last night, and president’s don’t get to raise the hype meter all that often and there is only one “first Oval Office address” for each president. Summoning up Jimmy Carter’s “malaise” speech and calling on the nation to install new windows isn’t what the MSM cheering section was hoping for. When, they wonder, does the announcement come that the oceans have stopped rising?

The president’s pratfall reinforces the widespread and growing impression that he is simply way in over his head, and that his team of advisors are similarly overmatched. His dismal handling of the Gulf crisis is a reminder to future generations of voters that it is best to discover whether presidential candidates have executive ability as opposed to, say, debating skills, before entrusting the nation’s defense to them.
