114. Great Men … and President Obama

ntk-logoNo guest this week but Jay and Mona have no shortage of matters to discuss. It ranges from Hillary’s odd invention of immigrant grandparents (Rubio envy?) to Jeb Bush’s integrity. Plus, is there a time to defy the right?

If there’s an Iranian fatwa against building nuclear weapons, why can’t anyone find it? And if it doesn’t exist, shouldn’t someone demand to know from President Obama why he keeps referring to it?

Jay and Mona speak of Cuba, and the president’s shameful enthusiasm for tyrants, as well as Hillary’s trap – she must distance herself from the unpopular Obama but cannot risk alienating the African American vote.

There’s much more, including closing thoughts on great professors, Lincoln, Appomattox, and a great moment in American history, almost exactly 150 years ago.

You will recognize the closing music.
