Here is audio of Rush Limbaugh today on his radio show where he interviewed Sen. Jim DeMint on the news that DeMint will leave the U.S. Senate to take leadership of the conservative Heritage Foundation.
One of the founders of the Heritage Foundation – Ed Feulner – was also on with Rush and announced DeMint as the new leader of the influential conservative foundation.

In case you missed it, here is complete video of the GOP Presidential Debate that took place last night, November 22, 2011, in Washington D.C. The debate was co-sponsored by the Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute, along with CNN. It focused on National Security, but also included some Economic and Domestic Policy Questions.
The GOP Presidential Candidates will square off again tonight – for the 11th time – in a debate on CNN, and also sponsored by The Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute. The debate will be held in the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. The debate will focus on Foreign Policy and National Security issues, but not exclusively:
CNN: The Republican presidential candidates face off Tuesday night just a few blocks from the place they all hope to call home: the White House.
The candidates share the stage at DAR Constitution Hall, just down the street from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. CNN is teaming up with leading Republican-leaning think tanks Heritage Foundation and American Enterprise Institute to host a debate that focuses heavily on national security and foreign policy issues, but which will also include top economic concerns, including the failure of the congressional super committee to find agreement to cut $1.2 trillion from the country’s long-term debt.
The debate is the 11th major showdown between the Republican candidates and the first in 10 days.
It’s also the first in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is firmly among the front-runners in national surveys, deadlocked with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for the top spot in the nomination race. . . . Read More
Incomparable Conservative Bill Bennett has written a piece that previews tonight’s debate, focusing on the new frontrunner status of Newt Gingrich:
CNN: Heading into Tuesday night’s CNN debate, co-hosted by the Heritage Foundation and American Enterprise Institute, the revolving GOP presidential field has a new front-runner: Newt Gingrich.
Newt’s rise has been a long time coming. Early on, his candidacy barely had a pulse. His campaign staff resigned en masse in June. The extravagant Tiffany’s bills were easy fodder for his critics. And, worst of all, he attacked Paul Ryan on “Meet The Press,” calling his budget proposal “right wing social engineering.”
At that point, conservative commentators, including myself, were ready to write Gingrich off entirely. But since then, thanks to his own determination and energy (and intellect), Gingrich has rebounded admirably. He’s become in his own way the spokesman for the GOP presidential field. . . . Read More
As we continue to approach the 100th birthday of President Ronald Reagan on February 6, here is a great video from the Heritage Foundation that reminds us through the words of Reagan that it can once again become “Morning in America.”
Here is another outstanding video from Heritage.org on the reform no one is talking about, but the one that is desperately needed: Welfare Reform.
Brandon Stewart at Heritage’s, “The Foundry” blog, has all the information on how “Welfare Can and Must be Reformed.” Great video!
