Randi gets it right again

Randi Rhoades had the best take on the analyses Barack Obama’s possible political motivations after he spoke eloquently about the current situation in Illinois and the current problems of influence, bought and sold, which shapes the policies we pursue.

her comment that had me cracking up was "if Barack Obama had gotten into politics to steal, he sure picked the wrong time, cuz we're broke!"

Randi has had the best analysis of this breaking scandal from day one.

Right on Steve! Randi is one of the sharpest tools in the shed on Radio today! She has been on target at least 98% of the time.
Seriously she is extremely well read and highly politically intuitive. She is amazing!

Bellingham AM 930 after Hartmann, who in his own right is one of the sharpest political minds you will find anywhere.

You can stream Randi Thom or Mike Malloy at NovaM Radio.
