With the spectacular Krista Kafer taking a rare night off, we will be
pleased to be joined by three guests through the evening:
Mark Hillman, former Majority Leader of the Colorado State Senate,
will offer his insight into Obama’s “dismissive” attitude toward
American business. What did Obama mean when he once said he felt like
a “spy behind enemy lines” during his brief stint in the private
sector? And today, when Obama tells us “You didn’t build that!” what
exactly does he mean? Come again?
Scott Shipley, Colorado resident and three-time U.S. Olympian, will
join us on the phone from London for the latest updates on the 2012
Olympics. We’ll gauge the vibes across the pond and learn a little bit
about what’s going through the minds of our athletes as they prepare
to give it their all.
Also, Dr. Jon Kedrowski, author of the new book “Sleeping on the

Bankruptcies have gone up – jobs, down. Fear, up – hope, down.
Everything that oughta be down is up, everything that should be up is
down. They’ve got it upside down, and we’re gonna turn it right side
All that from Al Gore, as ever, a man ahead of his time. Take heart,
folks, help is on the way.
