BRIAN'S QUOTE OF THE DAY
Brian on Obama meeting Iranian President Hassan Rouhani: "It's amazing. This is one thing that's united both sides. You have Senator Menendez writing with Senator Lindsey Graham, urging the president to keep in mind when talks to Iran what they've done. You have Senator Schumer with Senator McCain urging the president to tread lightly - my words, their spirit - in a letter when meets with the Iranian president. There's a lot of issues to discuss."
Former presidential candidate and Pennsylvania senator RICK SANTORUM talked about his newest venture as CEO of EchoLight Studios. Santorum said that he and his team are coming out with their first big theatrical release, The Christmas Candle, on November 22nd, where Susan Boyle will be an actress for the first time in her career.
Later, Santorum weighed in on the fight to de-fund Obamacare. "We need to do everything that we can to stop Obamacare from going into effect. One of the principal reasons I ran for president in 2012 because I was afraid of what Obamacare's going to do to this country," Santorum explained. "Ted's on the right track. We've got to pull out all the stops."
FOX's Chief White House Correspondent ED HENRY came by the studio and weighed in on whether President Obama should meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. "If this actually works, this is a big diplomatic achievement for the president," Henry explained, "But... this whole thing can fall apart. The Iranians could be using President Obama here the way... Vladimir Putin could be using the Obama administration in the Syria deal."
Former Attorney General MICHAEL MUKASEY weighed in on the al-Qaeda terror attack in Kenya. "We've got to really wake up to what the nature of this is. These are not unconnected acts. This is Islamist terror and these people are united by an ideology; and the sooner we face up to that, the better off we're going to be," Mukasey exclaimed.
REP. BILL JOHNSON (R-OH) weighed in on whether or not he would like the president to speak with newly elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. "I certainly believe it's his responsibility to know what's going on, to deal with these people in a very real fashion," Johnson exclaimed, "I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing."
Johnson also weighed in on Obamacare and how it will affect his district in particular with the Cleveland Clinic. He said, "I represent a very, very rural district and healthcare is a big, big issue. I've got counties that don't even have an emergency room facility for crying out loud!"
Comedian RICH LITTLE, talked to Brian about his long career and the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast collection that will soon be released on DVD. "Those roasts were clean. By today's standards, they're squeaky clean. The jokes are a little corny, but everybody was having fun," Little explained. He said that when the Dean Martin roasts were filmed, he was in his early twenties and just getting his career started. Little went on to say that going up on stage and performing at the roasts was "terrifying."
