netanyahu victoryJohn, Paul, and Steve talk about Benjamin Netanyahu’s stunning win and the American Left’s reaction to it. Iran was also front and center, along with the latest on the budget front.

Then they’re joined by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) for a short but enlightening interview; Rubio explained his thinking behind the famous open letter to the mullahs, and elaborated on his interview with the Associated Press last night, in which he made headlines by saying that as president, he would feel free to walk away from a bad deal with Iran, even if our European partners want to stick with it. After all, as John Kerry keeps telling us, the proposed deal is non-binding.

The show concludes with a little talk about the 2016 presidential race: Who are the frontrunners on the GOP side, and whom does the current anxiety about international events favor?

    “Kerry would lose a negotiation in a Persian rug market”. Love it.

    On your domestic agenda, 3 words: Line Item Veto. We’ve been arguing this issue for decades and after the GOP passed it in ’96 SCOTUS called it unconstitutional… still not sure why. I think it’s time for Republicans to get another version of it on the floor.

    In your analysis of the Republican contenders you left out what I and many people consider the most important qualification, is he a fighter? This is why Walker leads in almost every poll, he has shown an ability to fight. Two things, fight the Democrats , none of this esteemed colleague with a nice family crap and kick the media below the belt every day, don’t let them get away with thier lies and bias. Any Republican who doesn’t seem to understand who and what the enemy is doesn’t belong on the stage.

    I agree somewhat but he is getting a TON of criticism for preemptively surrendering to the Iowa Repubs.

    Agree, it was very disappointing.
