This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) calls in at 7:30am to talk about President Obama’s Afghanistan and Pakistan plans.

President Obama announced yesterday that struggling automotive giants General Motors and Chrysler will be given a “limited” period of time to “restructure in a way that would justify an investment of additional taxpayer dollars.” GM will be given 60 days to develop a better recovery plan and Chrysler will be given 30 days to complete a merger with Fiat.

President Obama leaves today for his first presidential trip across the Atlantic. He will first attend a summit of the world’s economic powers in London to address the global financial meltdown, and he hopes to convince European allies that his administration can improve the economy and the U.S. image.

President Obama made a strong pitch for his budget to House Dems in a closed-door meeting last night, arguing that the budget includes key components to turning around the ailing economy. He also told them that voting for the measure was good politics for Dems on the Hill.

Conservationists claimed one of their most significant victories of the new administration yesterday as President Obama signed sweeping land reform legislation designating 2 million additional acres of public wilderness areas, the highest level of governmental protection from logging and other development.
