Sean began Monday’s show highlighting the massive damage that Hurricane Irene left over the weekend. “It’s easy to Monday morning quarterback,” offered Hannity, “But I don’t see Obama’s FEMA trucks on Long Island as tons of people’s homes have been flooded and I’m not reading any reports of FEMA being involved.” “If Katrina was George Bush’s responsibility than Irene ought to be the same responsibility because this is what liberals wanted,” explained Hannity further, “They didn’t want a local or state response, they wanted a federal response.” Wanting a strong federal response or not, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg along with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie didn’t wait for one as they spent days preparing for this storm. Governor Christie has his Reagan moment on Friday when he told New Jersey residents living on coastal waters that they needed to move to safer ground. In his iconic way that only Governor Christie can deliver, he told residents to “get the hell off the beach” and move to safer ground. You can see the, now famous, press conference by clicking here.
Romney/Perry Bad Blood?
Governor Rick Perry is slotted to join Sean tomorrow and the timing couldn’t be better. Earlier this month Politico ran an article detailing the bad blood that exists between Governor Rick Perry and Governor Mitt Romney. A lot of the animosity apparently stems from Governor Perry’s endorsement of New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani in the 2008 GOP Presidential nomination. “My guess is that this is being played up by the media,” guessed Hannity, “We’ll see.” There’s certainly no requirement that candidates get along but the 2012 GOP race has been surprisingly civil to this point. Tune in tomorrow for more from Governor Rick Perry! To read the Politico.com article, click here.
Global Warming Reality?
On the heels of this weekend’s natural disaster, Sean took some time with Steve Goreham, author of “ Climatism”, Kathleen Rogers, President of Earth Day Network and John Byrne, the Chairman of Wind Power Ethics Group, to discuss the reality of Global Warming. Recently former Vice President Al Gore made waves when he suggested that those who opposed the theory of global warming could be compared to those who opposed civil rights in the 1960s. “I’m concerned and so should the rest of America”, argued John Byrne, “This is one of the fear cards he is playing to move forward his agenda.” Steve took it further saying, “People who were skeptical of the theory of global warming were compared to holocaust deniers so it appears that, rather than discussing the science, we’re going to do a lot of name calling.” Rogers, defending Gore, argued, “When you add the list of scientists who are credible on the c limate denying side and those who believe in it, there is an enormous gap.”
