How Rudy Would Have Handled ‘Occupy Wall Street”
Sean was joined by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani to discuss the ongoing ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests. “When Rudy became mayor of New York, New York was just a mess. Rudy got 600,000 people off the welfare rolls, reduced crime and went from budget deficits to budget surpluses. Right now, down on Wall Street, there are people walking around topless and smoking pot. What would you have done if you were mayor? Would you have allowed this to go on this long?” Sean asked Giuliani. “I had a rule,” the former mayor replied, “that you’re not allowed to sleep on the streets. Sorry, the streets are not for sleeping. Sleeping on the streets is a dysfunctional act, it harms the person and it harms society. It leads to unsanitary conditions that effect public health. It’s totally ridiculous. We’re worried about clean air yet we’re letting these people defecate on the ground. It’s totally crazy,” Giuliani said. Rudy also told Sean that he has decided not to run for president and may instead through his support behind a candidate that he will announce at a later date.
Pelosi: Republicans Want Women To Die On The Floor
Sean started Thursday’s show by mentioning a press conference in which Nancy Pelosi said that Republicans who voted for a pro-life bill were voting “to let women die on the floor.” Pelosi is talking about a bill that simply protects taxpayers from having to subsidize abortions through Obamacare. “I guess panic has set in for the Democratic Party,” Sean said smugly. “This is very similar to what Ted Kennedy tried to do to Clarence Thomas. Who do you a statement like that is aimed at? It’s to scare women into thinking that those mean, nasty, conservative, racist Republicans want women to die on the floor. I assume every other core constituent in the Democratic Party is going to be manipulated by fear. Well, it’s not going to work,” Sean said adamantly.

Bachmann: Media Intent on Choosing GOP Nominee
Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann joined ‘Hannity’ and discussed her performance at Tuesday’s GOP debate in New Hampshire. “I think the debates are wonderful vehicles for the viewer to be able to vet the candidates and see who we are. I am very pleased with these debates. I think they have gone very well and we get a glimpse into the soul of each candidate.” Bachmann also took the opportunity to reiterate her commitment, if elected president, to repeal Obamacare. “UBS did a study three weeks ago and they said the number one reason people aren't hiring people for job creation is because of Obamacare. It's got to be repealed. And I am the best candidate on that stage to do it. I understand it, I know it's going to be done, I'm tough enough. And I've got the commitment to make it happen because as nominee, I am not interested in being tied up in knots for four years in the White House. It will be my business to allow 13 more like minded Republican senators, so we actually repeal this bill,” Bachmann explained.
