Super Committee Failures
Senator Pat Toomey, (R-PA), joined Sean today to discuss his participation in the failed Super Committee. “I always thought the Super Committee was a bad idea, “reminded Sean, “Congress doesn’t want to make the tough choices and I think we’re just kicking the can down the road.” “This was always a long shot,” explained Toomey, “I’ve been in the Senate for one year and we’re going into our third year where Harry Reid and the Democrats feel no need to pass a budget.” Toomey continued to explain, “So, we have no parameters for our spending, no blue print for the size of our deficit and how we’re going to get out of it and no legislative guardrails for the appropriation process because they’d rather not have to cast some tough votes.” Tough votes are exactly what this country needs.

What's Next For Egypt?
Mike Ghouse, CEO of America Together Foundation and David Horowitz stopped by to share their thoughts on the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. “Things in Egypt are coming down to the Muslim Brotherhood or worse,” began Hannity. “There are several radical Islamic groups in Egypt,” corrected Horowitz, “They’re the ones with the political power and those with Democratic elements don’t have the resources to compete.” Ghouse, slightly disagreeing, argued, “This is the first time in the history where colonialism is ending and ultimately the will of the people will lead to stability in the region.” “There is only one way to get rid of the insecurity in the area,” fought Hannity, “There’s one country that needs to be stopped and that country is Iran.” There is a brewing battle going on with Iran and while Washington continues to jeopardize our defenses with over spending and poor fiscal d iscipline, only our votes in 2012 can help to alleviate the tension and strengthen our position in the world.
