Forced To Go Without Contraception?
Sean took the Friday airwaves and immediately commented on the story regarding law student Sandra Fluke. Fluke had attempted to testify last month at a congressional committee hearing in favor of the Obama administration's new rule requiring employers to offer health plans that include birth control coverage, but she was excluded from the panel. Fluke testified that she has seen "the faces of the women affected by this lack of contraception coverage" who have "suffered financially, emotionally, medically." While Ms. Fluke was commenting specifically on the cost of birth control pills, she neglected to mention that there are many other forms of contraception available. "She wasn't forced to go without contraception as she alleges," Sean countered. "I was in a CVS the other day and while I was waiting in line you can see row upon row of condoms of every sort and size imaginable. They're about 25 cents a piece! That's hardly unaffordable," said Sean. According to Fluke, 40 percent of women at Georgetown struggle with $3,000 contraception bills over the course of law school. Three grand! As the International Business Times noted, that's a condom for breakfast, lunch and dinner sex every day for three consecutive years!
Mitt Romney Discusses Israel
Sean was joined by presidential GOP candidate Mitt Romney in the show's final hour and discussed the tensions growing in the Middle East between Israel and Iran. "We should not allow an inch of space to exist between [us] and [our] friends and [our] allies. The president went about this all wrong. He went around the world and apologized for America. Just before Bibi Netanyahu came to the United States, he threw Israel under the bus, tried to negotiate for Israel," Romney explained. "The right course for us is not to try and negotiate for Israel. The right course is to stand behind our friends, to listen to them, and to let the entire world know that we will stay with them and that we will support them and defend them."

Why Is Obama Apologizing For America Instead Of To America?
Deadly violence has erupted once again in Afghanistan, following the unintentional burning of Korans last month by coalition forces. Two Americans were killed yesterday by an Afghan soldier in retaliation to that incident, bringing the number of American dead to six. This tragic news comes exactly one day after the president claimed that his ridiculous apology actually helped to, quote, "Calm things down." Sean was joined by Fox News contributor Liz Cheney to discuss the situation. Cheney agreed with Sean that an apology, if any, should have come from a commander on the ground in Afghanistan. "I think that you know, in a situation like this, this was an accidental act. I certainly would have preferred to have seen the apology come from the folks on the ground. I think that having President Obama step up here, you know, was simply, frankly, the latest wrong action in this policy he has undertaken in Afghanistan," said Cheney. Sean disagreed with Cheney that the Korans were burned incorrectly. "The Korans were desecrated, according to Islamic law. And you know, you are not supposed to write in the Koran. These books were in the library, extremists were passing notes to one another," Sean added. To watch Sean's entire television interview with Liz Cheney please click here.
