More From Solyndra
Sean spent more time this afternoon focusing on the Solyndra scandal that seems to have left mainstream media’s spotlight. “The LA Times broke a story this week that said Obama himself in fact was warned by “Tax Cheat” Geithner that these companies hadn’t been vetted,” offered Hannity on Thursday, “Now we’re just starting to learn even more of the details.” It does seem that the main stream media is trying to sweep this story under the rug but you can count on Sean to keep the pressure on.

It’s Time For A New Contract
Presidential hopeful and author of the original Contract With America back in 1994, Newt Gingrich, stopped by to share the details of his latest proposal which will bring back the Contract with a fresh new look. “The contract, you say, will fundamentally change the trajectory of America,” challenged Hannity, “This is a bit more complicated than the first contract.” Gingrich responded, “This is a four part contract that, I think, makes sense as a general principle and this is more detailed than the contract we did in 1994.” For more information about the contract and to read details of it, click here.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann
Sean was joined by Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann to discuss the status of her campaign. “What do you think of the topsy turvey nature of this process,” began Hannity, “It seems that you’ve been up and then Romney has been up and it seems that one issue can change people’s minds almost immediately.” “I think this process is good,” acknowledged Bachmann, “The media never vetted Barack Obama and now he is vetted as President of the United States.” That vetting process that has occurred over the last four years is probably the main reason that the Rasmussen Reports that were released this week show President Obama in a tie with a generic Republican candidate. After Americans have come to know President Obama, it seems anyone else would do just fine. To read the latest report, click here.
