Mitt Romney Goes After Gingrich
Former Governor Mitt Romney joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline to discuss his recent attack on fellow Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. Yesterday, Romney lodged his first attack on his surging rival by labeling the former House speaker "a lifelong politician" and suggesting he lacks credibility on the economy. Romney down played the remarks on Sean's show, explaining he felt the media blew them out of proportion. "I like Newt and his wife. I was asked about differences between us and I explained our biggest difference is probably our life experience. He has spent his last 30 or 40 years in Washington and is a career politician and I spent my life in the private sector - and I don't think he'd disagree with that," Romney explained.

Allen West: Cain Is A 'Distraction'
Allen West, the Florida Republican and tea party favorite said today that he would tell Mr. Cain that his candidacy has become a "distraction" and that "we should move on." After Ginger White of Georgia said earlier this week that she had a 13-year affair with the married Mr. Cain, numerous Republicans have said Mr. Cain's time in the race is up. "Beyond reassessing his campaign, he probably needs to understand that he is a distracter for what's going on right now and we should move on," Mr. West said. "That would be my advice to him." Sean disagreed. "Listen, I like Allen West, but I take the opposite view. There are a lot of questions for me. [Ginger White] apparently has a lot of debt and a history of making sexual harassment charges. Plus if this was a thirteen year affair, wouldn't there be videos from hotels and other places?
President Obama the Campaigner-in-Chief?
Our campaigner in chief is busy focusing on one thing, and that's getting re-elected. According to a Wall Street Journal study, "The Anointed One" has attended 54 events in 11 battleground states over the past 42 days. And the top it off, he's using our taxpayer money to do it. Of course the White House rejects these claims. They are arguing that the president has a responsibility to, "Go out and meet with Americans, the people, the folks." Sean was joined by columnist and author Ann Coulter for reaction. Coulter argued that Obama isn't willing to accept any of the blame for the current economic malaise facing the United States. "Even with his Obama signature legislation, ObamaCare, he just turns it over to Congress so he can't get blamed for anything. When the people don't like it, well, I didn't like what Congress did and now he's blaming the Super Committee." Coulter is excited about the current GOP candidate lineup. "They are all good candidates . And one interesting thing about the Republican Party is, there really are no Rockefeller Republicans anymore. In America, conservatism is popular and I think all of our Republicans these days, other than the one we run last time, are smart enough to understand that," Coulter added.
