So, it’s another double-header today.

We’ll start with my regular show this morning…

We’ll talk  the debt ceiling debate – with clips from Friday’s dueling press conferences with Obama and Boehner.  Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World, who was one of many Christian leaders who met with President Obama on Wednesday to implore him to protect programs for the needy

And Frank Schaeffer – whose latest book is Sex, Mom and God, joins in to talk about his new piece up at AlterNet: “Christian Jihad? Why We Should Worry About Right-Wing Terror Attacks Like Norway’s in the US”

Stay tuned for Randi’s show this afternoon!


Rundown for Randi’s show today:

Robert Kuttner, writer, co-founder and co-editor of The American Prospect magazine will talk with Nicole about the current debt and budget battle – truthfully, a political hostage crisis by the Tea Party. Kuttner says President Obama has all the cards in this conflict – if he’ll play them properly.

Frank Schaeffer, writer, director, American theology expert, and author of ‘Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back’. Mr. Schaeffer will address the right-wing extremist killings in Norway and why we should worry about similar right-wing attacks in the U.S.

And Steven Thrasher, staff writer for the Village Voice and contributor to the New York Times and Out Magazine on the same-sex wedding explosion in New York this past weekend and on being an official witness for a Stonewall veteran and her wife.
