Oliver North: No More Muammar
News broke today that Libyan’s dictator Muammar Qaddafi was killed by members of opposition rebel forces. A spokesman for Libya’s National Transitional Council announced the fate of the infamous leader by saying, “Qaddafi is dead. He is absolutely dead.” Sean was joined by Colonel Oliver North who’s had a lifetime of run-ins with the Libyan leader including several attempts on his life. “Qaddafi’s dead,” began Hannity, “You’re safe now.” North responded, “Vengeance is not mine, it’s the Lord’s but you cannot help but be glad that this guy is gone.” “By the way, the Iranians are taking a completely different lesson from all of this,” cautioned North, “The Iranian message is that they need to brutally suppress any public or popular uprising.” For the latest on this developing story, visit Hannity.com.
Presidential Candidate and Former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, Herman Cain stopped by to update the audience on the 2012 GOP nomination process. “They were coming after you the other night,” began Hannity, “They were coming after you big time.” “They sure were,” laughed Cain, “The good news is that their attacks didn’t stick with the public because they were dead wrong.” Hannity continued, “I was analyzing, objectively, on the program how I thought the debate went and you ought to be ecstatic about how the debate went.” “I sure am,” offered Hannity, “I wish I had more time to explain my plan but I was limited in what I could do in one minute.” Sean spent some time going through Cain’s 9-9-9 plan and offered him the time he’d look to explain his new plan.

Frank Luntz: Showdown in Vegas
Sean was joined by pollster Frank Luntz to discuss his thoughts on the showdown in Las Vegas between the Republican GOP presidential candidates. “Before we get into this, go through who won each previous debate,” asked Hannity, “I know Romney won one and so did Cain.” “Cain one the first one that Fox did in South Carolina when he was at 1% in the polls and we’ve done a few were people thought Newt Gingrich had won,” explained Luntz, “ But there are three consistent objectives of people who are watching these debates.” Luntz went on to explain, “Number one – which is the candidate most able to beat Barack Obama, Number two – which is the candidate who has the strongest principles and Number three – which is the candidate who can communicate the best.” Looking at the field and the polls, it seems that all of the candidates exhibit these qualities which make the GOP’s decision very difficult.
