Going To War!
Sean began Thursday’s show talking about the upcoming election. “This is going to be a transformative year and I can’t explain it,” began Sean, “The war that’s coming, oh wait, I can’t say that because I’m a conservative and only liberals can say that.” Sean continued his analysis of last night’s debate saying, “I watched it at midnight last night and the media is trying to make the debate about bad blood between Perry and Romney.” Former Speaker Newt Gingrich made some waves when moderator John Harris tried to push the battle between Governors Perry and Romney by suggesting there was a philosophical disagreement between Massachusetts’s mandate for health care and Texas’ more limited approach. An angry Gingrich quipped, “I’m frankly not interested in your effort to get Republicans fighting each other.” To see video of Speaker Gingrich’s comments, click here.
Governor Mitt Romney
Sean was joined by GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney to discuss his perceived battle with Governor Rick Perry for the party nomination. “What did you think of last night’s debate,” questioned Sean, “The media is trying to make the debate personal but it didn’t seem personal to me.” “It’s not personal,” quickly responded Romney,” The purpose of a debate is to pull people to your side and Rick is trying to do that and so am I.” Though the battle is still fairly close, it’s clear that these two seasoned politicians are jockeying for position though they’re doing it in a very civil way.

Congressman Paul Ryan: What Jobs?
President Obama is planning to address the nation again to discuss his plans for creating new jobs. “When the left talks about tax reform it’s usually a way to mask a tax increase,” offered Hannity. “That’s exactly right,” agreed Ryan, “They’re saying that they want to raise more revenues and not lower taxes and that’s a huge job killer.” You can watch President Obama’s remarks live on Fox News by clicking here.
