Celebrating A Hero
Sean was live from Atlanta to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Fox News and his television show. Unfortunately, Hannity had to start the celebratory show addressing the recent news that former Apple CEO Steve Jobs passed away yesterday. “We lost Steve Jobs,” Hannity solemnly began, “I don’t want to use his death to make a point and my heart goes out to his family but I look at Steve Jobs and what an amazing man he was and now, do you think it’s right that we go in and take 50 percent in an estate tax?” Forbes Magazine reported yesterday that Jobs’ estate will likely be asked to pay 35% of its overall value. The real question is not the dollar amount but rather the idea that Washington feels the need to hit those who’ve dedicated their lives to the American Dream.
Sarah Palin: Why I Didn't Run?
Governor Sarah Palin stopped by the show to discuss her reasons for not running for president in 2012. “You were the most difficult read,” complimented Hannity, “Over the last year I think I watched you go through a process, could you walk us through what was going on with your side of things?” “This wasn’t about me,” responded Palin, “I went through very careful consideration and I believe that I can be more effective in trying to help elect true conservatives into our leadership.” Hannity pressed on asking, “How big a factor was knowing that you were being treated at a whole different level in the media.” “I know the decision I made was the right thing for me, for my family and for this country and I look forward to helping our leaders strategizing on how to solve America's big problems.” To listen to Sean’s full interview with Governor Palin, click here.
What Are You Doing?
Tea Party Chairwoman Amy Kremer and Wall Street Occupier Grim Womyn joined Sean to debate the "Occupy Wall Street" movement. “So why are you down there,” Hannity pressed Womyn, “I assume you believe in everyone’s right to make money, right?” Womyn responded, “What we’re trying to do is to open the conversation in the country to the relationship between business and government and examine the relationship between wealth and influence.” “I understand why there is frustration," offered Kremer, “Wall Street manipulated the markets to make a profit but when the bubble burst they shouldn’t have been bailed out and those who are protesting on Wall Street should be protesting in Washington.” The American system of capitalism is based on the notion that everyone is given an equal opportunity to succeed and fail. Those who have been protesting Wall S treet have lost that notion and it appears those in Washington have as well.
