Times Square Terrorism
Sean kicked off the show criticizing Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano over the way she handled the recent bomb scare in New York City that took place this past weekend. Napolitano told Fox and Friends this morning, “Terrorism is something I wouldn’t rule out,” offered Napolitano,” We know that if this explosion had been properly ignited that would have been quite a fireball in that area but it wasn’t properly done.” Hannity ripped into the Obama administration arguing, “Gee, you think this could be terrorism – or what they’re calling an attempted man-caused disaster.” Hannity continued, “this administration seems to be incapable of seeing what is so obvious to the rest of us that when you put propane tanks, gas cans, fertilizer, wires and a timing device then that person was trying to create a terrorist act.” It seems that there are times when it’s okay to dr aw some conclusions before all the facts are in. As the saying goes, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck. To read more on this past weekend’s events, visit FoxNews.com.
Rep. Duncan Hunter
Sean was joined by California Congressman Duncan Hunter to discuss his latest thoughts on immigration reform including a proposal to make significant changes to the cross-=border trucking program authorized by NAFTA. “Reinstating the cross-border trucking program would directly undermine our nation’s border security and significantly disadvantage American trucking companies, “argued Brown in a recent letter to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. Congressman Hunter has been on the forefront of the immigration battle and his latest efforts to secure our borders aren’t going unnoticed by Sean.

Chris Horner and Michael Brown
Sean was joined on the NewsMaker hotline by Chris Horner, author of the book, “Power Grab” and Councilman Mike Brown to discuss the latest issues surrounding the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. “The Obama administration was hoping for this to go away,” suggested Horner. “Nothing was said publicly about this story for nine days,” offered Hannity, “are you going to say that the administration was slow to respond.” Brown offered his praise for the Obama administration saying, “all of the agencies were mobilized to find the best way to resolve this situation and they’re already working with local governments to deal with the economic impact that’s going to come from this.” President Bush was criticized for taking an extra ten minutes to fully respond to the 9-11 attacks and here President Obama gets a full nine days? Is this another double standard? Think about this as we cont inue to learn more about the economic and environmental impact this spill has on us.
