TheBlaze TV's new "Wilkow!" program staring talk radio host Andrew Wilkow got off to a fast start Monday evening, featuring interviews from Senator Rand Paul and former Congressman Artur Davis.
Wilkow told TheBlaze Monday morning that the show would go into philosophy and "past what you’re used to" from other news programs.
“We’re going to go very deep, but probably in a way that many other hosts might have lost the audience because they would have made it boring,” Wilkow told TheBlaze.
Monday's debut began with a blistering monologue assessing the commander-in-chief on the campaign trail.
"Barack Obama is not Bill Clinton," Wilkow said. "No matter how hard he tries, he cannot win by running on the record of his first term."
As the show's inaugural guest, Republican U.S. Senator from Kentucky Rand Paul joined "Wilkow!" to discuss what to expect with Congress back in session this week following summer recess. Sen. Paul's new book ,"Government Bullies," analyzes how regulations that are often conceived with good intentions, can spiral out of control in Washington. On "Wilkow!" Monday, Sen. Paul spoke of the fundamentally different views conservatives and liberals have on taxes, where U.S. government agencies overreach, and what worries he has for the country moving forward should President Obama be reelected.
Following Sen. Paul, Andrew was joined by 2008 Obama supporter, now Romney surrogate, former Democratic Alabama Rep. Artur Davis. On Monday's show, Davis spoke with Wilkow about the rhetoric used by today's Democratic Party, and the growing intolerance he sees shown by those on the left.
