Campaign Bus One?
Sean blasted President Obama for his latest spending spree which involves over $2 million in spending on two armored buses. “The President never travels by bus as part of his official business,” explained Hannity, “Now the Secret Service needs to outfit his bus with state of the art armor and the latest high-tech gadgetry and all those costs are paid for by us.” The Secret Service acknowledged the costs but argued that these busses will be used as a security asset for protecting future presidents. “How did all the past presidents survive without these busses,” asked Sean.

Approval Rating Drops Below 40%
Gallup Daily announced some bad news for President Obama today when they announced his approval rating dropped below 40% making him the first president to be rated this low this far into his first term since Truman. On the heels of that news, Sean was joined by Sally Kohn and CEO of Wall Street Strategies, Charles Payne, to discuss President Obama’s future. “The last week we’ve heard from Standard and Poors, the Federal Reserve and the Stock Market and they’re all saying America is in trouble and is heading in the wrong direction,” explained Payne, “What they’re saying is this is all because of the fact we have no confidence in our markets.” Kohn defended Obama by arguing, “This is a time when we should be coming together and doing what’s best for the country.” Hannity, listening to both sides, criticized President Obama saying, “Everything he has tried has failed and he was wrong on everything.”
Former senate candidate Christine O’Donnell joined Sean to talk about her new book, “Trouble Maker,” which is set to hit shelves tomorrow. O’Donnell was the most written about candidate during the midterm election where she fought hard to overturn a popular incumbent and then several difficult campaign controversies. At the heart of the controversies was her admission that she “dabbled in witchcraft” as a young child. She then released a campaign ad where she proclaimed not to be a witch. “All of the fanfare made out of this snuffed the real message of what this campaign was about,” an obviously perturbed O’Donnell shared, “I put the DC establishment on notice and so they tried to paint a picture of me that was inaccurate.” Hannity agreed, “The battle between the establishment and Tea Party members is happening now.” O’Donnell, though she didn’t win election, was one of the original Tea Party victories in the primary election and someone who offered a lot of momentum to the midterm successes.
