The New Reagan Revolution
In the show’s final hour, Sean spoke with Michael Reagan, the son of the Ronald Reagan, about his new book, “The New Reagan Revolution.” Reagan told Sean that many of the challenges and threats we as a nation face today are eerily similar to the conditions in the world before the beginning of the Reagan era. “We as a nation stand at a crossroads once again,” said Regan. This time, however, we are fortunate to have a blueprint for restoring America’s greatness. Reagan has given us the principles to succeed. Michael Regan’s book isn’t just a diagnosis of all of the problems facing our nation, but a prescription to heal it – rooted in the words of the late Ronald Reagan. The book shares the plan Ronald Regan developed over years of study, observation, and reflection. It’s the plan he put into action during his eight years in office as one of the most effective presidents of the 20th century, and it is the plan we can use today to help return America to its former greatness, soundness, and prosperity.

Loughner: Bush Hater?
Sean touched on an article in the New York Times that revealed Arizona shooter Jared Loughner became intrigued by anti-government conspiracy theories, including that the Sept. 11 attacks were perpetrated by the government and that the country’s central banking system was enslaving its citizens. His anger would well up at the sight of President George W. Bush, or in discussing what he considered to be the nefarious designs of government {NYT Article}. Also, it appears Loughner was not influenced by conservative talk radio or television. “It turns out Loughner wasn’t a consumer of conservative talk radio or a fan of Fox News. But even if he was, I don’t think it would have mattered,” Sean said. “You cannot say that someone on the radio, or on TV or who writes a book is responsible for what a twisted, violent man might use as an excuse to justify their anger and rampage.”

Karl Rove
An angry Karl Rove joined Sean in the show’s second hour to discuss the Arizona shooting. Rove was upset over the amount of anti-conservative rhetoric. “It’s amazing in the aftermath of this deeply troubling tragedy that people started pointing fingers where fingers shouldn’t have been pointed. I was particularly taken aback when the sheriff of Pima County, who should know better and is a partisan Democrat, went out and laid this on the footsteps of Sarah Palin with absolutely no evidence, then or since, that shows her in any way connected to these shootings. You look at this troubled young man’s background and there is nothing to suggest he listened to Hannity or Limbaugh or paid attention to Sarah Palin,” Rove concluded.
