President Savage? Radio Talker Mulls Oval Office Run

      Tanks keeping illegal immigrants from U.S. borders? Nukes dropped on terrorist sanctuaries? Iraqi insurgent strongholds barb-wired and then decimated?

 

      That’s just a glimpse into the future should ultra-opinionated radio host Michael Savage have his way and become the next leader of the free world.

 

      The top-rated talker announced last month that he may leave the airwaves and join the political zoo by running for the nation’s top office. Since then, more than five million people have affirmed that they want him to seek the presidency according to an online opinion poll conducted by Savage Productions (www.savage-productions.com/ webpoll_savage_president.html).

 

      In an interview with The Jewish Press, the radio personality spelled out his official presidential policies on some of today’s burning issues:

 

      Regarding U.S. border control, Savage favors stationing the National Guard along America’s periphery “with orders to shoot to kill.”

 

      “I’d also put tanks on the border if necessary,” he said. “I’d reinforce the border after making sure we still have a border following so many years of it’s having been melted down under George Bush.”

 

      Savage’s formula for winning the war on terror is simple: “My platform would be nuke ‘em and rebuke ‘em. Hit them hard. Hit them fast and get out of the Middle East. Teach them we are the most powerful nation on earth and when our interests and their interests conflict, we are going to win.”

 

      The talker maintains America can “absolutely” be victorious in Iraq.

 

      He said as president he would “send maximum force into the Sunni triangle and after giving them 72 hours to evacuate their women and children, turn on the Sadar City area and not go door to door, but decimate the entire area after barb-wiring the place and letting the women and children out.”

 

      Following his prescribed military campaign, Savage said Iraq would be divided into four quadrants as determined by the League of Nations after World War I.

 

      He then turned to Iran, calling it a “great nation of great people,” but deeming Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad “an anomaly, the Hitler of our time.”

 

      Savage advocated an international coalition unified against Ahmadinejad to ensure Iranians “have a chance to live in freedom and peace.”

 

      Savage said his presidential candidacy can do no harm, since the GOP in its current state is “incapable of winning.” He knocked all the current Republican candidates as “good Republicans and bad conservatives. None of them evidence much of a conservative orientation.”

 

      While Savage is mulling a run, vice-presidential candidates shouldn’t be lining up just yet.

 

      “I’m just exploring,” he said in a previous online interview. “I could not continue to do my radio show. I’ve been told that once you’ve declared yourself a candidate and you’re openly running, you have to give up your career in the media for obviously good reasons.”

 

      Savage is the nation’s third-most popular talk-show host, reaching approximately 8 million fans listening on more than 370 stations weekly. His show is consistently ranked one of the nation’s most influential, and is rated number one in multiple major city markets, including his home base in San Francisco.

 

      The Talk Radio Network host often sparks national news. Savage was credited with bringing the Dubai Ports World deal to national attention. The deal would have turned over U.S. port operations to the Middle Eastern company. A public outrage ensued, forcing Dubai Ports World to scuttle its plan.

 

      Savage has written a series of best sellers, the latest of which, The Political Zoo, is a satirical criticism of both Republicans and Democrats.
