Karl Rove: The President is No B+
Sean was joined on the NewsMaker hotline by “The Architect” Karl Rove to discuss his latest op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal, “The President Is No B+” where the former White House Chief-Of-Staff argues President Obama has the worst ratings of any president at the end of his first year. “When you realize that Obama had the wind at his back and lavish praise being heaped on him by the press, to see him decline means that the American people are seeing through him,” argued Rove. “I think the GOP is on track to get five or six Senate seats,” argued Sean, The mastermind behind the George W. Bush Presidency had a great outline of how the conservative movement can grow. It’s always a breath of fresh air to hear “The Architect” layout another plan for success.
Splash Of Cold Water: Nelson Stands Up to Obama care
Democratic Senator Ben Nelson threw some cold water on the recently heated debate of Obama care. When asked whether he opposed the Democrats health care reform bill because of language that suggested government dollars would go toward paying for abortions, Senator Nelson quickly replied, “There are other substantive issues.” Combined with similar announcements by Senator Lieberman and there’s some reason for celebration. “This could be what ends the whole thing,” argued Sean. If Sean’s right then we should all thank Senator Nelson for a wonderful holiday gift!

So, to recap 2009, we spend trillions of dollars to generate jobs and we lose them to over-regulating government agencies. Makes sense?
