U.N. A Colossal Waste Of Time, Energy And Money
A steamed Sean Hannity took the national airwaves, charged up about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Iran now possesses enough enriched uranium to create three nuclear devices an IAEA report disclosed. Iran's efforts to interfere in the organization's ability to inspect its nuclear sites are also highlighted in the report, which essentially suggests that Iran is headed down a path to achieving military nuclear capabilities. At the U.N. yesterday, Ahmadinejad used his address to assail the "Zionist regime" and spread conspiracy theories about the 9/11 attacks - prompting the entire U.S. delegation to walk out. Ahmadinejad claimed most people believe the U.S. government "orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy and its grip on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime." “If this does not show what a colossal waste of time, energy and money the United Nations is I don’t know what will,” Sean said angrily.

If You Like Food Stamps The Democratic Party Is For You
Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, joined the program and briefly commented on Long Island, NY businessman John Gomez’s Congressional campaign. Newt boiled the decision of who to vote for down to one simple choice. “If you like food stamps (in June more Americans got food stamps than ever before in history) – then you have a food stamp party, they’re called Democrats. After they kill your job they will redistribute wealth to give you food stamps. If on the other hand you like a pay check, and you think having a job is a good idea – you have a party, they’re called Republicans,” Gingrich concluded.

Pollsters Zogby and Rasmussen
John Zogby and Scott Rasmussen joined Sean in the show’s final hour and discussed the latest poll numbers surrounding the upcoming midterm elections. John Zogby was more cautious than Sean or Scott about the GOP’s chances in November. “It’s incumbent upon the Republicans right now to prove that they are the party of change and that they have a program that is meaningful. They need to run on something positive. Yesterday they came out with the pledge – we need to see how that plays out,” said Zogby. Rasmussen, while bullish on the GOP’s chances this election season, also voiced some concerns. “We are seeing just a little bit of an uptick in Democratic enthusiasm over the last week or two. There is no decline in the Republican enthusiasm, but Democrats are starting to become a little more energized, and that’s shifting a couple of races away from the GOP just a little bit,” said Rasmussen.

Newt Gingrich

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. In 1995, Time magazine selected him as the Person of the Year for his role in leading the Republican Revolution in the House, ending 40 years of the Democratic Party being in the majority.

A college history professor, political leader, and author, Gingrich twice ran unsuccessfully for the House before winning a seat in the election of November 1978.
