Hugh is one of the President's strongest backers and has been a loyal supporter of the Republican Party, pushing candidates on his radio show. He was basically positive about the President's speech. Then he had on Julie Myers of the Homeland Security Department and concluded that she basically doesn't support the idea of a border fence and now he's totally flipped and doesn't believe that the administration is really sincere on provisions to make the border more secure. Senator Frist said the right things when he was on, but no one has all that much faith in his ability to shepherd a decent bill through the Senate. If the White House doesn't want to lose one of their most vocal and influential supporters, they better get someone talking to Hugh Hewitt to convince him (and us) that they mean what they say about beefing up that border security.
