More Bad News
Sean kicked off Tea Party Tuesday by sharing more bad news about the BP oil spill. “There’s more bad news,” shared Sean, “the top hat seems to have failed and the leak is at full bore again and where’s the media on this story.” CSMonitor.com reported that the solutions put in place to slow the leak seem to be failing and it’s not clear what the next steps will be. The real question is why this story isn’t plastered across all major news outlets? None of the major news outlets have the story prominently displayed. Could it be that President Obama has failed to deflect responsibility for the slow federal response? It sure seems that way.
Bob Beckel and Francisco Hernandez: Should McChrystal Have Been Sacked?
Sean was joined by his friends Bob Beckel and Francisco Hernandez to discuss the latest on General McChrystal’s recent dismissal from the top post in Afghanistan. “You can’t criticize your boss on national media,” argued Hernandez, “there’s a clear chain of command that must be obeyed in order for our military to work.” Hannity quickly retorted, “What did he say that was so bad that warranted his being fired.” Beckel jumped in saying, “If this weren’t a war he should’ve been fired but McChrystal is the leader of the war and he should stay.” It’s refreshing to see a big lib like Beckel supporting McChrystal.
