Pelosi: Republicans Want To Destroy Everything
Guest host Mark Simone, filling in for Sean today, kicked off Friday’s show by discussing Nancy Pelosi’s latest tirade against the Republican Party. Pelosi told Think Progress progressives and other reporters that Republicans want to destroy literally everything. “"We just passed a bill, 1.2 trillion dollars in cuts. If it were about reducing the deficit, the statement has been made about seriousness to do that. This isn’t about that. This is about destroying – it isn’t about reducing the deficit, it’s about destroying the public space. It’s about destroying public…federal involvement in education," she said. Using the same line she used during the deb t ceiling debate Pelosi falsely claimed Republicans want to destroy air, water and food by keeping the country solvent. Additionally, she now says Republicans want to destroy everything. "It’s about clean air, clean water, food safety, public safety. Yo u name it, they’re there to diminish it, destroy it," she added. “I’m not a psychiatrist,” said Simone, “but if you want to go after Republicans make it a good attack. It’s not even a good attack. It makes your mouth just hang open. What is she saying?” To listen to Pelosi’s speech, click here.
Stuart Varney On Rollercoaster Markets
Although the Dow was up 61 points today that’s isn't a reason to get excited, guest Stuart Varney explained to Mark Simone. “You think that’s good news?” Varney asked rhetorically. “This stock market just passed judgment on the US economy – it’s dropped 10 percent in 10 days. It’s also just passed judgment on Obama’s economic policies – wiping out all the gains for the year so far. That’s a pretty negative judgment on Obama and the economy if you ask me.” Varney didn’t have much good news for the future either. “We are headed, it looks to me, towards a double dip recession, or at the very least a lousy long period of pretty slow growth,” Varney concluded.

Iowa Straw Poll Make Or Break For Tim Pawlenty?
In about one week, the Hannity team will be headed off to Ames Iowa - the site of the Republican primary debate. Who's going to come out on top and could next week's showdown prove to be a make or break event for some of the GOP nominees? Sean was joined by a man who has a lot on the line next week - former Minnesota Governor, Republican presidential candidate, Tim Pawlenty. Pawlenty expressed a lot of confidence going into the straw poll. “I think when my record continues to get out across Iowa in America, reducing spending, and doing health care reform the right way with no individual mandates, no government takeovers and appointing conservative justices and more, we're going to continue to get good momentum. And I think you will see the first step of that in the straw poll next week,” the former Governor told Sean. You can watch Sean’s entire interview with Pawlenty by clicking here.
