Drill Baby, Drill
An energetic Sean Hannity took the national airwaves this afternoon, starting the show off by discussing the ongoing BP oil crisis. Many critics have suggested that the United States should suspend offshore drilling temporarily or even permanently. In fact, Rosie O’Donnell, on her daily radio show on SiriusXM, went so far as to suggest seizing the assets of BP. Sean admitted that the disaster in the Gulf is horrific and should have been prevented, but was adamant that we continue to pursue energy independence as vigorously as possible. “Should we take over every company? We could call it Barack Obama, Inc.!” Sean said sarcastically. “The Annointed One, Inc. That’s what we’ll do; we’ll just take over everyone’s business here! Drill baby, drill. Hannity is an all-of-the-above guy. Nuclear power, coal mining, you name it. We need to be energy independent.” On TV last night, Sean brought on several people with ideas for fixing the spill in the Gulf. You can watch the segment by clicking here.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer Meets Obama
As many listeners of the show know, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed an immigration bill into law that set off a firestorm of controversy. The legislation makes it a crime under state law to be in the state without proper documentation, requires local police to question people about their immigration status. This morning, Obama invited Brewer into the Oval Office to discuss illegal immigration. “I invited Obama to come down to see visually with his very own eyes exactly what the problems were and how we were trying to combat them. Obama said he didn’t have time,” Brewer told Sean. Obama believes that enforcement should accompany a comprehensive change in immigration law. However, Brewer and most Republicans say they can’t support immigration reform until the border is more tightly controlled. Brewer told Sean she left the meeting with no commitments from the president other than a promise of better communication.
Janice Kay Brewer (born September 26, 1944) is the 22nd and current Governor of the U.S. state of Arizona and is a Republican. Jan Brewer automatically became governor of Arizona as part of the line of succession as determined by the Arizona constitution, replacing former governor Janet Napolitano.
