Obama’s approval numbers continue to suffer because of Obamacare, and Obama supporters – including Democrat members of Congress and members of the main stream media – are increasingly discouraged. Many Democrat Senators are now openly defying Obama, and calling for legislation that would reinstate sanctions on Iran if the Iranians fail to live up to the six-month deal agreed to last month.
Glen talks about the latest Obamacare headlines, the A&E network’s decision to fire Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty, and the judge’s decision to curtail the NSA’s data collection program. Glen also talks with several entrepreneurs about what it takes to be successful in these frustrating political times. George Romanoff (owner of Ace Sporting Goods) offers thoughts on the current state of the firearms industry, and Larry Erdos (Co-founder of Speedy Furniture) describes how he and his brother Darrell were able to launch a brand knew furniture store concept in the midst of the 2009 economic downturn.
