Tiger Woods Charged!
Sean kicked off Tuesday’s show by covering the Tiger Woods press conference where the Florida Highway Patrol officially charged the pro golfer with careless driving – a $164 fine. “The tabloids in New York are going nuts with the idea that this accident was caused by some marital affair,” Sean noted, “this isn’t going to go away and as far as I’m concerned it’s pretty obvious he’s not going out at 2 in the morning to get a six pack of diet coke.” There’s a lot of talk going on but, as Sean pointed out this afternoon, it’s really not any of our business. Find a person who hasn’t squabbled with their spouse and you’ll find a miracle, or a liar.
Newt Gingrich: Conservative Victory 2010
Sean was joined by former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, who chatted with Sean about the upcoming elections and what conservatives can do to help win. “What is your challenge to President Obama,” asked Sean, “what would you do if you were the president?” Newt explained his new plan, American Solutions, which is designed to focus on the creation of real American jobs. “We need to bring everyone, Democrats and Republicans, together who believes in work ethic and agrees that protecting Americans manner,” argued Gingrich. The Rasmussen Report issued this week argued that 71% of Americans are angry with the federal government. That’s nearly ¾ of all Americans! Perhaps the groundwork is being laid for a 2010 victory but at the very least Americans are starting to realize the country’s woes aren’t solely President Bush’s fault.
Governor Huckabee: “I take full responsibility”
This past Sunday in Lakewood, Washington, former convicted criminal Maurice Clemmons shot and killed a Seattle police officer. Governor Mike Huckabee, back in 2000, had granted clemency to commute Clemmons’ sentence. “I take full responsibility for the commutation,” defended Huckabee, “but this didn’t release him but he was eligible for parole.” Huckabee continued, “If I could have possibly known what Clemmons would do, I obviously would have made a different decision. But if the same file was presented to me today, I would have made the same decision." It’s interesting to see the liberal spin on this “scandal”, it certainly seems that Governor Huckabee isn’t hiding from his decision, probably because he did nothing wrong.
Newton Leroy "Newt" Gingrich (born Newton Leroy McPherson ; June 17, 1943) is an American politician who served as the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999.
