Oil Prices Are Obama’s Fault!
Sean spent time on today’s show complaining about OPEC’s inability to reach a consensus to reduce or raise production. “If President Obama is counting on these countries to lower gas prices because he’s looking at his re-election possibilities, it’s not working,” complained Hannity, “In 2008 during his campaign he thought that his irresistible Obama charm would change the actions of these foreign countries but they’re pretty much saying ‘screw you’ and this is why we need to beg for oil to be produced.” It’s becoming increasingly clear that President Obama lacks a clear energy plan and, what’s worse, it still appears he doesn’t have one.” For more on this developing story, click here.
Karl Rove: What Should Weiner Do?
Former White House Chief-of-Staff Karl Rove stopped by to discuss Washington politics with an obvious focus on the story of the week, Congressman Anthony Weiner’s admission that he published lewd photos of himself on Twitter. “What do you make of all of these scandals that keep coming out, “asked Hannity, “I look at the Schwarzenegger case I’m like ‘what did you think this wasn’t going to come out’?” Rove offered his thoughts, “Anthony Weiner is an unpleasant individual and not a lot of democrats liked him because he was so over the top and for him to think this doesn’t somehow impair his effectiveness as a congressman is nuts.” Rove continued, “You remember when Mark Foley had sent inappropriate email messages the GOP leadership threw him out even though they knew they were going to lose a seat.” That’s leadership, pure and simple. Doing the right thing because it’s the right thing is the kind of leadership we’ve seen time and time from Republicans who find themselves in similar situations and yet Anthony Weiner can’t seem to follow suit.

Steven Schwartz: Defending Anthony Weiner
A long time family friend of Anthony Weiner joined Sean to defend the disgraced Congressman’s actions. “What he did was human,” argued Schwartz, “He was flirting and the only thing he did wrong was the cover up.” Hannity quickly pressed, “He doesn’t bare responsibility for his lies and what you’re suggesting is we blame his advisors for bad advice.” It’s hard to defend Congressman Weiner’s actions, even the Congressman himself couldn’t but kudos to Sean for entertaining an opposite viewpoint.
