In the wake of President Obama’s budget proposal, former presidential candidate Herman Cain joined Sean to discuss his thoughts on the negotiated plan coming out of Washington. “This plan is going to cost a fortune,” began Hannity, “I know the Republicans were fighting to hold spending and stop tax increases but they’ve caved to political pressures.” “The plan that President Obama has given us is an insult to the American people,” an angry Cain offered, “It comes down to three numbers, 35, 50 and 80.” Continuing his explanation, “When President Obama took office, the average per person debt was $35,000, by the end of 2012 it’s expected to be $50,000 and if this year’s budget plan goes into effect we can expect that number to be $80,000 in ten years, that’s not the direction we want to be going.” It’s certainly not the direction that President Obama had in mind when he told campaign supporters in 2008 that if he couldn’t turn the economy around by November of 2012, he’d be “facing a one-term proposition.” For more on Herman Cain and his initiatives to fight excessive government spending, check out Cain Connections by clicking here.
Demonization of Wall Street
“I want to take a minute out of the day to tell you about a group that is helping our brave men and women find jobs in this difficult economy,” Sean began Friday, “With the demonization of Wall Street, I thought this was great that you’re helping our men and women find jobs.” Lawrence Doll and Jim Cahill, founders of Wall Street Warfighters Foundation joined Sean to discuss their new initiatives. “I’m a service disabled Vietnam vet,” explained Doll, “I was fortunate enough to get my former commanding officer, General Peter Pace, to be a partner in a broker dealer.” Doll continued, “What we decided to do was train disabled men and women who come back from Iraq in the financial services industry and help them get their license.” We have learned from some of the best and we import that to these people,” Cahill offered his thoughts saying, “While we were sleeping they were protecting u s and making a sacrifice … we owe them something.” For more information on how you can support this worthy cause, click here or visit Hannity.com.
Former MSNBC host Pat Buchanan was recently fired and stopped by the show to explain his story. “When you came on my TV show I remember saying to you in the green room that you were going to get fired,” reminded Hannity, “ You’ve lived a controversial life but not any more so today than when NBC hired you.” “My views haven’t changed since I came out of journalism school in 1962,” explained Buchanan, “I don’t know when my ideas have become so controversial that I need to be silenced, censored and blacklisted.” Buchanan continued, “I haven’t moved but the country has and I don’t think the problem isn’t so much with me as with this great country.” “My firing began, almost immediately, with the release of my book ‘Suicide of a Power,’ but I don’t know where in my book there is a single nasty term where I’m saying horrible things.” For more on Pat Buchanan’s book and to read his remarks on the news that his MSNBC contract won’t continue, visit Buchanan.org.
