What's on The Tom Sullivan Show 5-21-09

Obama vs. Cheney
President Obama and former VP Dick Cheney both made dramatic speeches today about national security. Tom breaks down the debate and asks the best way to fight terrorism in the future.  Plus, the FBI arrested four men in an alleged plot to blow up NY synagogues and shoot down military planes.
 
Mom on the Run
An arrest warrant has been issued for a Minnesota woman who fled with her cancer-stricken son to avoid chemotherapy treatments.  Doctors say they can save the boy’s life, but his mother is a strong believer in alternative medicines.  Do parents have a right to refuse medical care for their children?   Should the government step in?
 
"Idol" Upset!
In a major upset, Kris Allen was named this year’s "American Idol" despite the huge popularity of his rival Adam Lambert.  Tom believes Adam was clearly the better singer and performer.  Was last night’s competition really a battle between red state and blue state values?  Did rumors about Adam's sexuality prevent him from winning?
