THE STEVE YUHAS SHOW
ON THE SHOW TODAY:
Disgraced San Diego Mayor Bob Filner came out on Friday for an unannounced press event that everybody thought would be his resignation announcement – it wasn’t. Mayor Filner has had seven decades of bad behavior – behavior where he treats women in ways that only somebody with an ongoing war on women could and his special announcement? Well, he’s going to take two weeks off, during the previously announced summer recess of the San Diego City Council, to get help for a lifetime of sexual abuse targeted toward women. Really? Two weeks is all it takes to change a lifetime of bad behavior? This guy is a laughing stock (it’s tough to decide who the bigger pervert is: Anthony Weiner who continued “sexting” long after he left Congress or the Bob Filner). One thing we do know: They’re both Democrats and they’re being asked to step aside by their party, but many are defending them saying what they did is private. What do you think about Mayor Filner’s two-week plan and the Weiner problem in NYC?
President Obama is out talking about the economy – he has no new ideas and instead rolled out the phrase to avoid responsibility for anything happening in Washington: Phony scandal. He doesn’t say which of the scandals in Washington, D.C. (that he apparently forgets he leads one of three branches of) – is the one where the
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie sparked what is a much-needed conversation in the Republican Party as it relates to the Libertarian wing of the party. I could think of a dozen different ways Christie could have done it, especially when you consider he’s the last person that ought to talk about how “dangerous” it is to be a Libertarian when his “moderate” method of governance amounts to little more than bombastic rhetoric with little to back it up (or is the fact that it took half a year to move a roller coaster out of the ocean after Hurricane Sandy and some people still living in tents his view of what it means to govern?). He started it:
Traitor Update: It’s hard to keep up with all of the updates coming out about Army Major Nidal Hasan, Private Bradley Manning, and former Booz Allen Hamilton employee and NSA contractor Edward Snowden, but we’ll try. In a way it is easy to keep up with the two of three because they are in the military and easier to track, but Snowden is an traitor of a different color – he’s supposedly stuck in an airport in Russia, but we’ve only seen him once and only heard about him a couple of times. So the traitor update:
Fort Hood suspect: US at war with Islam (says we must adopt Sharia Law, okay – execute him with dull knife & pay the sequester with pay per view at $20 per house or $100 per bar to watch the beheading).
Veteran & Military News:
AF Offers Early Retirement in Certain Fields (but $200-250,000 bonuses for 9 years as a pilot)
TIDBITS & ODDITIES IN THE NEWS:
Jesse Jackson: Boycott Florida Over 'Stand Your Ground' (meanwhile the states with EXACTLY the same law: Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah while dozens more have something very similar to it). Race-baiters need somewhere to go.
