    Should be a good interview. Hume is usually a straight shooter.

    Britt still brings his talent that paid for the bread and butter all these years. I wonder who on Fox News will interview Obama and Biden. lol.

    Brett hosted “Special Report” for many years, but he probably got so bored he appeared that he was sleeping on camera. Brett Baier is doing a pretty good job and has Hume on a lot.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Brett Brit Brit Brett. I’m so confused. First word, 2nd sentence should be “Brit.”

  • Ralph Hahn

    It’s only a matter of time before Special Report will feature a teenage news segment, hosted by a teen, probably named…”Brat.” ;-)

    @Ralph Hahn

    I read somewhere that Brit said he didn’t wanna put the time in needed to do the show. My only complaint about Brett is he tries to explain things to much. I guess that’s good for folks who don’t follow things. At times it seems like he’s talking down to the audience. JMO

    If you have problems with the name, have a basic “ho-hum” indifference to Special Report and have nothing very positive to say, let me suggest grabbing the remote and tune into a really inspiring Ed Show, Rachael Maddow or even that fun guy, Chris Matthews. They all have shows on BSNBC. Check your local guide.

    Hustler FASCIST sOCIALIST COMMUNIST POWER GRAB FAIR SHARE STOLEN TAX PAYER TO BUY VOTES Obama’s plan is not only worse for seniors, it’s an abomination for everyone else. The only challenge lies in convincing the dormant masses.

    THINGS EVERY VOTER NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT RYAN’S MEDICARE PLAN

    1. No one over the age of 55 would be affected in any way.
    2. Traditional Medicare fee-for-service would remain available for all. “Premium support”—that is, government funding of private insurance plans chosen by individuals—is an option for those who choose it. No senior would be forced out of the traditional Medicare program against his will.
    3. Overall funding for Medicare under the Ryan-Wyden plan is scheduled to grow at the same rate as under President Obama’s proposals. Is this “gutting Medicare” and “ending Medicare as we know it”? In reality, it’s the market giving seniors cheaper, higher quality choices they can take if they wish, with the traditional program remaining an option.
    The administration is condemning the Ryan plan saying it will “end Medicare as we know it.” The truth is “Medicare as we know it” is going broke, and when it does (not if, but when) it will take our entire economy down with it. If Obama doesn’t believe this, then let him look the American people in the eye and tell us that “Medicare as we know it” is doing fine. If not, he needs to tell us how exactly how he plans to avert this disaster, or why his option to do nothing. Either way, whether we adopt some kind of reform to transform Medicare as we know it into Medicare as we can sustain it, or whether we simply let the economy be driven off the cliff by unrestrained entitlement spending, Medicare as we know it will end under LIBERALS SPENDING for DO nothing
