The Economy Is Struggling

Uh Oh Mark Halperin In Trouble
MSNBC's Mark Halperin made headlines yesterday for referring to President Obama with a very bad name after thinking he was off air. “Are we on the seven second delay,” asked Halperin after making his remarks, but a producer was unable to stop the language from making the air. “We’re on a delay and we have to put this show on a delay so we can stop people from saying stupid things so you don’t need to be offended,” explained Sean, “I’ve even dumped myself when I wanted to change the way I said something.” The message Halperin was spreading yesterday though was very interesting. Essentially, Halperin was arguing that President Obama’s press conference seemed a bit arrogant but that message will all be hidden by the liberal media’s spin.

Stuart Varney and Juan Williams:The Economy Is Struggling
So what did you think of President Obama’s remarks to the country earlier this week? Sean wasn’t all that impressed and neither was Stuart Varney. “Tell Juan why it’s a bad idea to raise taxes,” asked Hannity of Varney, “especially during a downturn.” “When you take money out of a private enterprise, and that’s what a tax cut does, you give that money to a less efficient public sector,” explained Varney, “You simply slow the economy. This is true historically and it’s definitely true now.” “You are threatening the American economy,” countered Williams, “You’re threatening it by saying you won’t raise the debt limit which will drive a bond market crazy, drive up interest rates and cost this economy jobs.” Another lively debate between these two left Sean really wondering if there will ever be a resolution to the debt ceiling discussion.

Senator Rand Paul
Senator Rand Paul offered a compromise surrounding the debt ceiling debate earlier this week that’s growing momentum. “Republicans need to introduce their plan to raise the debt ceiling contingent on three things and they are; significant cuts, caps that raise in spending and a balance budget amendment, “We could pass the legislation that would raise the debt ceiling and it would take place contingent on these three things happening.” Sean agreed though cautioned, “When you say cuts, they have to be significant.” Sean has been preaching this for over a year now, we need significant cuts to our spending if we’re going to control our future economic growth.
