Sean began Tuesday’s show talking about the silver lining in all of this year’s GOP primary battles. “For those of you who are arguing that this is Reagan vs. Ford or Goldwater versus Rockefeller, maybe those days are done,” offered Hannity, “Maybe the conservative views are winning over the nation.” Sean continued, “So as we go back and forth we have to remember how much progress conservatism has made.” Sean continued the praise for conservative policy. “There are people who are traveling three or four hours to work because they cant afford to live in the city they live in,” continued Sean, “The Hill reported today that 75% of Americans already pay their fair share and yet we have debt reaching toxic levels.” There’s a lot at stake in this election, not the least of which is the future of our economy, but Sean's point is a good one. It's nice to see the candidates fighting to prove just how conservative they are.
The Rise of Islam
Sean spent much of yesterday ranting about President Obama’s last stop on the apology tour which found “The Great One” profusely apologizing for the news reports of protestors burning copies of the Koran. You can listen to much of that rant on Hannity.com. Sean brought in Mike Ghouse of America Together Foundation and Brigitte Gabriel of Act for America to discuss the President’s actions. “Here’s the problem,” began Sean, “We see what’s happening in Egypt and the attempt to implement Shariah law and we see the rise of radical Islam unfolding before our eyes.” “I am fighting with Muslims around the world,” responded Ghouse, “There has, in the last ten years, been an increase of moderate Muslims like me to speak out.” “You are a small minority,” countered Brigitte, “When you look at the results, what we are seeing is the rise of radical Islam.” “Brigitte continued, “What the west is witnessing in Afghanistan is a wake up call for America to realize that we can pour all the billions of dollars into Islam trying to get mainstream Islam to like us only to learn that more Muslims are treating us as the infidels.” The security and stability of world peace lies in the balance of this continuing debate and it’s clear that President Obama should think carefully before making blanket apologies to the world.
Governor Mitt Romney stopped by to share his thoughts on Michigan and Arizona’s primary. “ Last night you were on the TV show and I don’t think you were as mad at another candidate as you were at Rick Santorum,” began Sean, “You’re angry at him over a robo-call campaign he’s started.” “This is an old dirty trick where he’s trying to drum up Democrat voters to come in and vote against me,” fought back Romney, “He’s a big labor republican who’s trying to drum up democrat votes.” “You’ve been very strong against this campaign,” countered Hannity, “Why does this one seem to bother you so much.” “There’s a republican campaign trying to get democrats to vote against Romney,” blasted Romney, “Republicans ought to be selecting the nominee of our primary as opposed to getting democrats to weigh in.” Senator Santorum counter ed today on ABC News that his efforts prove he can attract democrats. Suffice it to say, Governor Romney doesn't agree. To watch Sean's interview with Governor Romney, click here.
