Show  592  Segment 1  Never Enough.  Segment 2 The Return to Prosperity.

Segment 1- Dennis Prager talks to William Voegeli, a visiting scholar at Claremont McKenna College, and a contributing editor to the Claremont Review of Books. His new book is Never Enough: America's Limitless Welfare State. The Dennis Prager Show aired July 08, 2010

Overview of the book-  Since the beginning of the New Deal, American liberals have insisted that the government must do more – much more – to help the poor, to increase economic security, to promote social justice and solidarity, to reduce inequality and mitigate the harshness of capitalism.  Nonetheless, liberals have never answered, or even acknowledged, the corresponding question: What would be the size and nature of a welfare state that was not contemptibly austere, that did not urgently need new programs, bigger budgets and a broader mandate?  Even though the federal government’s outlays on all the programs in its “Human Resources” category have, after adjusting for inflation and population growth, doubled every 18 years since 1940, liberal rhetoric is always addressed to a nation trapped in “Groundhog Day,” where every year is 1932, and where none of the existing welfare state programs that spend tens of billions of dollars matter, or even exist.

 

Never Enough explores the roots and consequences of liberals’ aphasia about the welfare state’s ultimate size.  It assesses what liberalism’s lack of a limiting principle says about the long-running argument between liberals and conservatives, and about the policy choices confronting America in a new century.  Never Enough argues that the failure to speak clearly and candidly about the welfare state’s limits has grave policy consequences.  It concludes that the worst result, however, is the way it has jeopardized the experiment in self-government by encouraging Americans to regard their government as a vehicle for exploiting their fellow-citizens, rather than as a compact for respecting one another’s rights and safeguarding future generations’ opportunities.

 

Segment 2- Dennis talks to Arthur Laffer about his new book The Return to Prosperity.

Show 591 Michael Medved talks to Laura Ingraham author of The Obama Diaries.

 

On May 20, 2010, Laura Ingraham received a package from an anonymous source that will change the history of the United States and the legacy of President Barack Obama. While retrieving her automobile from the underground garage at the Watergate complex (where she had just enjoyed her weekly pedicure), Ingraham discovered a manila envelope on the hood of her car. When she picked it up, a deep baritone voice called out from a nearby stairwell: "Just read it. You'll know what to do." The shadowy figure then disappeared into the darkness without another word.

 

The envelope contained copies of what appeared to be diary entries written by President Barack Obama, his family, and high-ranking administration officials. Because the "diaries" are so revealing, Ingraham felt compelled to release them to the American public and the citizens of the world.

 

Major media outlets love to describe the president as "no drama Obama," but The Obama Diaries tells a different tale. Through these "diary entries," readers will see past the carefully constructed Obama façade to the administration's true plans to "remake America."

 

In The Obama Diaries, Ingraham hilariously skewers the president and his minions. She takes aim at:

 

the cynical "razzle-dazzle" marketing of Obama's radical agenda

the use of the Obama "brand" and family to obscure Obama's true aims

Michelle Obama's gardening and anti-obesity initiative; and much more.

 

Informative and hugely entertaining, The Obama Diaries will inspire both laughter and critical thinking about the future of the nation and the man currently at the helm.

  

Excerpts from Laura Ingraham's The Obama Diaries

 

Obama on Sarah Palin:

"Hell, doesn't Palin have anything better to do than criticize me? Shouldn't she be back home shooting some endangered wolf species from a helicopter?" (April 9, 2010)

 

Michelle on being First Lady:

"I'll be damned if all this fabulosity is going to go to waste reading Dr. Seuss to snot-nosed kids all day." (January 23, 2009)

 

Vice President Joe Biden on Michelle Obama:

"She's kind of like a black Hillary Clinton. I mean that in a good way." (May 5, 2009)

 

Obama on his visit to the Vatican:

"If I can ingratiate myself with a few more of these red-hats, the pope thing might not be a bad follow-up to the presidency." (July 10, 2009)

 

About the Author-  In addition to hosting her own syndicated radio program “The Laura Ingraham Show,” Laura Ingraham is an author, frequent columnist, and television commentator, as well as a guest host on The O'Reilly Factor. A former Supreme Court law clerk and white collar criminal defense litigator, she previously hosted her own show on MSNBC and was a commentator for CBS News.
