Dead Fish is Flopping
Sean hit the ground running today with his criticisms of former White House Chief of Staff, Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel who made news today for being knocked off the ballot for the upcoming Chicago mayoral race. The Illinois Supreme Court removed the former Obama staffer because he couldn’t adequately establish the necessary residency requirements. “The facts are simple,” noted Hannity, “It’s straight forward, Illinois state law requires a candidate to live in the municipality a year prior to the election.” For a politician as savvy as Emanuel, this obvious glitch in his campaign should’ve been considered long before he abandoned the Obama White House.
Michael Barone and Scott Rasmussen: Turning Down The Volume?
Sean was joined by pollsters Michael Barone and Scott Rasmussen to discuss the latest issues in Washington. “The State of the Union address is coming up,” mentioned Sean, “Is the kumbaya atmosphere going to exist even though last week Democrats were saying that Republicans were going to kill people if they repeal the health care bill?” Scott Rasmussen added his thoughts saying, “The President’s job approval is improving and those began when he reached the agreement with Republicans on the tax cut.” Barone added his thoughts saying, “We’ve seen the number of people who strongly disapprove of Obama has been going down but what we’re seeing is that he’s not making as many concessions in policy as we thought he would.”
Ann Coulter and Pat Caddell
Ann Coulter and Pat Caddell spent time with Sean this afternoon debating the rhetoric in Washington. “Biden is out there saying that Obama is the best President since FDR,” noted Hannity. Caddell added, “It’s amazing to see the non push back of Obama moving to the center.” Coulter added, “To quote Richard Nixon, how about we watch what he does and not what he says.” The truth is that President Obama is gaining traction since his disastrous November elections but the American people are looking for leaders in Washington to control spending and return government to its proper role. It remains to be seen if President Obama can be that leader.
