HH: Well, that was different. I am joined now by Senator Lindsey Graham of the great state of South Carolina. Senator Graham, I just got done throwing hammers back and forth with one of the people I most admire, Paul Ryan.
Audio of Tuesday’s debate with House Budget Chair Paul Ryan:
HH: I am usually very proud to be a Republican, sometimes embarrassed, but never before ashamed, and I am ashamed today of the deal that the House Republicans are pushing that will screw the career military. And I will debate that deal with the chairman of the Budget Committee, Paul Ryan, after the break. But I begin my discussion today with United States Senator Marco Rubio of the great state of Florida. Senator Rubio, welcome to the Hugh Hewitt Show, Happy New Year.
HH: Former prime minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon, was laid to rest today near his Sycamore Ranch in the Negev Desert. Joining me to perhaps recall for Americans who don’t know, and for those who do know, the great importance of Ariel Sharon is Israel’s former ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren. Ambassador Oren, welcome, and thank you for joining us on what must be a very emotional day in Israel.
