The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 08/17/10

Air date: 
Tue, 08/17/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Joe returns from vacation to join Abe in taking a snapshot of the body politic.

It's summer. It's hot, it's sticky, and an election looms in November. What can we expect? Nearly halfway through President Obama's first term, what is the state of the American zeitgeist? Has the president delivered on his promise of hope and change? Are the Teabaggers worth taking seriously (no, really ...)? Have we shrugged off the toxic malaise of the Bush Years? What can we expect on Election Day?

And perhaps most importantly, do Abe and Joe have anything worth saying?
