Boehner: “If Obama Won't Lead, We Will”
Yesterday Sean conducted an exclusive interview with the man leading the Republican charge in Congress, the 61st Speaker of the House, John Boehner. Sean spoke with the speaker about the Obama administration’s reckless budget, the Tea Party and who Boehner would like to see as the Republican nominee in 2012. The House Speaker expressed frustration with Obama’s recently announced budget. “I was very disappointed when I saw his budget. You know, the president is elected to lead, and when you start talking about spending and debt and the mountain that we are putting on the backs of our kids and grandkids, I was really disappointed the president didn't act.” When Sean pressed Boehner on whether the bill would die in the House, the speaker admitted the proposed budget “would die, gone, over.” Boehner was adamant that the federal government can&r squo;t continue to spend money that it doesn’t have. “This year, nearly 40 cents out of every dollar the federal government is spending we have to borrow from the Chinese. And as our kids and grandkids get to pay it back. It is time for someone in this town to get serious by cutting spending. And this $100 billion that we'll cut this week is just the beginning of the cutting that will come.” To watch Sean’s interview with John Boehner please click here.

EXCLUSIVE AUDIO: Sean and Mark Levin Up To Their Old Tricks
The dynamic duo made a surprise sneak attack on one of Sean’s favorite Lib callers, Velma from Las Vegas. When Velma told Sean about her distaste for his dear friend Levin, Sean surprised her by putting him on the phone and giving him a chance to respond to the skeptical Velma. “You’re a stalker, you’re obsessed with me,” Levin said. “But if you ever met me, you would love me.” While Levin and Velma argued about how Michelle Obama has been lecturing the nation about what to eat, Sean interrupted and defended Velma. Sean explained Velma is a nice religious lady who prayed for him to get well. After things cooled down a bit, Velma took back being so hard on Levin. But if Levin told us what to eat and wear every day Sean warned it wouldn’t be pretty....and it would involve a “Clinton Happens” baseball cap. And what does Levin wear while doing radio in the bunker? The answer may shock you! Listen here!

Wisconsin Turmoil Is Only The Beginning
An estimated 25,000 people are protesting anti-union legislation at the Wisconsin state Capitol, and nine demonstrators have been arrested. On the third day of protests, the Statehouse was completely jammed with protesters opposed to a bill that would strip public employees of their collective bargaining rights. The crowd filled the building's hallways, sat cross-legged across the floor and chanted slogans. “What’s happening in Wisconsin is only the beginning,” Hannity commented. “These types of protests will eventually happen in Washington as well,” Sean predicted.
