A Serial Apologist
Sean, still recovering from a lingering cold, took the Monday airwaves steaming about Obama's ongoing "Apology Tour." "We have a serial apologist in the White House," Sean said referring to our commander-in-chief. "President Obama is out again apologizing to the Muslim world for what is clearly an accidental Koran burning in Afghanistan which has lead the the deaths of American soldiers there." Sean felt that an apology by the commander on the ground in Afghanistan might be warranted, but one given by our president is going to far. "In this instance, when we know all the facts, I don't see any reason why we should apologize at all!" Sean said adamantly. "In fact, I don't know why we are not demanding apologies for the attacks and murders of our soldiers. But instead we get multiple, groveling apologies that are clearly not having any impact from the president on down. At this point the whole thing is becoming disgraceful and counterproductive," said Sean. You can listen to Sean's entire opening monologue in which he attacks Obama's "Apology Tour" by clicking here.
Santorum On What To Expect In Michigan
Sean welcomed presidential candidate Rick Santorum to the show and discussed tomorrow's big primary in Michigan. A new poll showed that Santorum had halted a slide in support that began after a weak debate performance in Arizona last week. The Mitchell Research/Rosetta Stone poll said the former Pennsylvania senator is in a statistical dead heat with Romney. Santorum was optimistic and reiterated to Sean that his focus, especially for Michigan who's economy has been devastated over the past several years, was on the economy and job growth. "I saw in Pittsburgh when I was a Congressman in Pennsylvania and we were able to recover. We went through a horrible decline in the steel industry, without a bailout, and we were able to recover and diversify. There are now bio-tech buildings where steel plants used to be and new communities being built in a lot of places. If you have the right leadership, recovery is possible," Santorum told Sean. Sean also spoke to Santorum about his debate performance last week. To hear Santorum's take on how he did, listen to Sean's entire interview here.
Newt Gingrich On Accidental Koran Burning
Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich joined Sean and discussed the accidental Koran burning in Afghanistan. Gingrich agreed with Sean that an apology from the president was not necessary. "This is a commander-in-chief that, instead of standing up for the young men and women who defend America, is basically appeasing our enemies, weakening the United States, diminishing our moral prestige - for what? These were Korans that were being used by terrorists to pass messages back and forth. I'm not arguing that it was ok to burn them, but there is something profoundly wrong with our whole approach to the Middle East when churches can get burned in Nigeria and Egypt and nobody apologizes but Obama is constantly running around trying to apologize to radical Islamists," Gingrich told Sean.
