A Sign of The Times: Hallmark Unveils 'Jobless Cards'
With unemployment the way it is, there's a new way to reach out to someone who may have lost his or her job. There are now sad but timely messages written on Hallmarks' layoff and recession greeting cards. “Do you want to know how bad things have gotten? If that doesn’t say it all I don’t know what does,” Sean exclaimed. Here’s a taste of one of the new cards, this one featuring a large lemon on the front. The front reads: “Life gave her a lemon, a really big lemon. She started to make lemonade, but then she thought, what the heck, and made a martini with a twist instead.” The inside reads: “I think you'll handle this like you do everything else - in your own unique way and everything will be more than okay.” “People think I’m kidding when I say this is an ‘Obama Depression’ or an ‘Obama Disaster’ but you see something like this – what else can you call it?” asked Sean.
Herman Cain’s Big Win In Florida
Herman Cain joined Sean in the show’s second hour to discuss the big win for his campaign this past Saturday in Florida. Cain told Sean that this is no longer a two-person race and that Florida’s straw poll results prove just that. “My message is resonating and whenever I announced to people that one of the things that separates me from the rest of the folks is that I’ve never held public office. I get a spontaneous round of applause from the audience every time I say that,” Cain told Sean. Cain also told Sean that people are excited about his 9-9-9 plan for the future of the economy and the restructuring of our tax code.

Solyndra Stonewall On Capitol Hill
Congressional investigators ran into a Solyndra stonewall on Capitol Hill. Two top executives from the failed solar company refused to answer any questions relating to the $535 million taxpayer funded loan. Instead, they all took the fifth. While the Congressional investigation continues, The New York Times has uncovered even more damning evidence tying Solyndra to the White House. A front page article in in last week’s Times reveals that Solyndra lobbyists met with an Obama aide, White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, at least three times to push for government assistant. In fact, these lobbying efforts cost the company nearly two million dollars. But in the end that price tag may have been worth it for Solyndra after all they were handed a taxpayer check for more than half a billion dollars. Sean was joined by Republican congresswoman Marsha Blackburn and Democratic Congressman from New Jersey Rob Andrews to discuss the ongoing Solyndra debacle.
