Known And UnKnown
Former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, joined Sean to discuss the release of his new book, “ Known and Unknown: A Memoir.” In his book which recounts his half-century career, Rumsfeld shares previously undisclosed details that will fascinate readers and force historians to rethink many controversies. Rumsfeld told Sean that his book will reveal what happened behind the scenes during the critical moments of the Bush years. The book is not just based on Rumsfeld’s memory but also on hundreds of previously unreleased documents from throughout his career. And best of all, all proceeds from the sales of “ Known and Unknown” will go to the military charities supported by the Rumsfeld Foundation.

Tax Increase Or Tax Decrease?
Sean laughed at President’s Obama’s assertion this past Sunday that he “didn’t raise taxes once.” A taxpayer watchdog group has called Obama’s claim “blatantly false,” according to an article published by CNSNews.com. Obama made the claim in his pre-Super Bowl interview with the Fox News Channel. According to Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), President Obama has signed into law at least two dozen tax increases. The first one – a federal tobacco tax hike – came just 16 days into his presidency. ATR says the $1 trillion health care overhaul alone added numerous taxes, including the individual mandate that requires most Americans to purchase health insurance or else pay a fine. But that’s not all. Obama also raised taxes in other areas. For a complete run down please take a look at the report from CNSNews.com.
Forbes Columnist Gene Marks
Sean invited columnist Gene Marks, author of a controversial article entitled, “Sarah Palin’s Kind Of Hot, But Obama Will Make Me Money in 2011.” Sean went on the attack right from the start of the interview. “Your article is totally incoherent. You are somebody without ethics, principals or a value system and I find your whole way of doing business kind of obnoxious,” said Sean. Marks admitted he wrote the headline to draw attention to his article. Marks also stereotyped Republicans as those who “chew tobacco, own pickup trucks and carry guns.” Sean was disgusted. “I think you’re using people to exploit yourself and draw the media’s attention to you and your career,” Sean steamed.
