What's on Tap – Monday, July 20, 2009

Here are just a few of the stories you'll see today on "the most news in the morning."

  • For the first time since he was captured, we're seeing dramatic video of a U.S. soldier taken by the Taliban in Afghanistan. The U.S. military is calling the tape propaganda. We're live with his plea – his family's prayers – and the Pentagon's reaction.
  • A six month report card. New polls suggesting President Obama's approval ratings are slipping on some key issues – including health care – something he's pushing hard for this week.
  • Secretary of State Hillary Clinton meeting with India's leaders this morning. She's in the middle of her week long trip to India and Thailand. It's a key diplomatic test – after the Mumbai terror attacks raised tensions in the region again.

    Obama's ratings are sinking because even those who voted for him are shocked at his half-baked health care plan.

    Along with liberty, justice and abortion for all he keeps trying to cram it down our throats!

    This is America, people! We stand up for ourselves!

    Don't we??? Are you there? America?

    Can someone explain to me why the military and media is so outraged about taking and showing pictures of a captured US soldier, yet were quite happy to show hooded and shackled prisoners being yanked across a hot tarmac and disshevelled "worst of the worst" prisoners from Gitmo and Sadaam In his underwear, pictures which continue to be shown over and over again. seems to me propaganda is propaganda; and Hypocricy is hypocricy.

    It's no wonder that Obama's polls are slipping. He is forcing his national healthcare policy upon us.

    He keeps saying that it would make private insurance cheaper through competition. We have had Medicare for years and private insurance has not been competitive with it!
