"We've Made Wonderful Progress With The Economy"
"We've made wonderful progress with the economy," Michelle Obama told a small crowd in Sarasota at a private fundraiser for her husband's re-election campaign. Sean was stunned and pointed out a few news stories from today's headlines that showed quite the opposite was true. American Airlines' bankrupt parent, AMR Corp. is preparing to announce layoffs - some estimates show 19,000 employees might lose their jobs. Police were placed on standby while the company met with unions earlier this morning. "Obama's plans aren't working!" Sean exclaimed. Also, based on yesterday's CBO report, the U.S. economy isn't exactly going gangbusters. "We're about four or five years away from the economy completely collapsing if we stay on the same economic path," Sean added. "This CBO report is basically predicting America's full and complete economic collapse unless something is done," Sean concluded.
Dick Morris On Why Gingrich Lost
Dick Morris joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline to discuss yesterday's Florida primary. Morris explained why he felt Gingrich lost to Romney. "Women," Morris explained. "Gingrich lost because women turned on him. It was overwhelmingly because of a gender gap. Romney carried men by five points, and carried women by twenty-four points - a nineteen point gender gap. That's astonishing. The women of America have embraced Mitt Romney which is very good news for the Republicans because the Democratic vote is overwhelmingly female," said Morris.

West Clarifies 'Get The Hell Out' Message To Democrats
Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), whose comment over the weekend directed at President Barack Obama and Democratic leaders in Congress to "get the hell out" of America sparked an uproar. West defended his remarks yesterday on 'Hannity'. West explained that the 'get the hell out' reference was to the message of the Democrats, and was not actually suggesting Democrats themselves leave the U.S. "Just the message. It's the message. And I think what you see are the liberals understanding that someone called them out. When you look what is happening in this country with the debt, the deficit, the CBO coming out and saying once again we're going to have a trillion dollar plus deficit in 2012, the fourth straight year, and unemployment may be going back up to 8.9 or maybe nine percent by the end of the year, these are serious situations that are going. And last week at the State of the Union address you heard the president say nothing about the debt, nothing about deficit or Dodd-Frank or health care or the failed stimulus package. So we've got to start calling these people out for who they are. We are now 1,007 days without a budget in the United States of America." You can watch Sean's entire interview with Rep.
