Was It His Weiner?
Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, caught up in a bizarre controversy over a lewd photo of a man’s crotch sent to a woman from his Twitter account, said today it’s possible the photo is of him – though he insisted he didn’t send it. “This is amazing to me,” a bewildered Sean said. “I think most of us would know with absolute certainty whether or not that was our photo, or whether or not that photo was of our private parts. I’m not trying to be rude or crude here. Anthony Weiner wants to make more and more decisions about your lives. He’s one of these big government leftists who presume to know better how you should live your life than you know. It certainly demonstrates though that if these allegations are indeed true he is certainly not wiser or smarter about how you should live your life,” said Sean.

Horror for US Economy?
Sean mentioned the lead story from the DrudgeReport.com this afternoon which presented a dire forecast of the US economy. "US house prices have fallen by more than 5 percent year on year, pending home sales have collapsed and existing home sales disappointed, the trend of improving jobless claims has arrested, first quarter GDP wasn’t revised upwards by the 0.4 percent forecast, durables goods orders shrank, manufacturing surveys from Philadelphia Fed, Richmond Fed and Chicago Fed were all very disappointing,” said Mike Riddell, a fund manager at M&G Investments in London. Sean invited Juan Williams and Stuart Varney to the program to get their take on the stagnant US economy. Listen to the entire interview right here.
