Dick Morris: Newt Gingrich Is Leading?
Sean was joined by Dick Morris to discuss the latest polls coming out of last week’s debates. “We’ve always said that Gingrich was a couple of good debate performances away from getting into contention,” began Morris, “I think some republican primary voters are saying that they like Cain but they don’t want to spend the entire general election defending that.” Hannity pressed further saying, “If we look at the Iowa caucus, right now Cain has 20% in Iowa and Gingrich has 19% and nobody thought Romney would win in Iowa.” Morris cautioned, “I think the real story is Newt Gingrich’s surge and it’s because of his steady performance in each of the debates and Newt has gotten a lot better at letting his substance shine.” To see more on Morris’ thoughts on Gingrich, check out this video on Dick Morris.com.

Peter Schweizer: Throw Them All Out
Sean was joined by blockbuster author Peter Schweizer, author of the book “Throw Them All Out,” a book that details how politicians can make money through insider stock tips, land deals and other cronyism. “We all made a big deal about Martha Stewart going to jail for insider trading,” began Sean, “But I was stunned that inside trading was exempt for members of Congress.” “You see it all,” explained Schweizer, “If you are engaging in insider trading there’s a good chance you’ll go to jail but they won’t.” “I don’t understand the principle,” asked Hannity, “People have wanted to pay my restaurant bill in the past but I won’t accept gifts, are there any members of Congress that you’ve found who are ethical?” “There are members of Congress that don’t engage in aggressive stock trading,” acknowledged Schweizer, “There are some.&r dquo; Schweizer’s book brought firsthand the quiet crime that’s being committed under every American’s nose.
