Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich shared his thoughts about Super Tuesday on Sean’s show today. “You’re up by forty points in Georgia,” began Sean, “You’ve got to be very excited.” “We are,” acknowledged Gingrich, “I see a lot of good things happening tonight.” Gingrich continued, “We see some movement in Ohio where we may pick up a bunch of delegates in Ohio and there’s real excitement about Alabama.” “How do you define success tonight,” pressed Hannity, “I have mentioned to you the other day that it appears you’re in a close battle in Tennessee.” “This race could go into June,” added Gingrich, “With California and Texas it’s hard to figure out how you’re going to lock up the nomination without the two biggest states in the country.” For more Super Tuesday coverage, check out Fox News’ coverage here.
Holder vs Sekulow
Tamara Holder and Jay Sekulow met again to debate the ongoing contraception battle that’s being waged in Washington. Can religious institutions be required to cover President Obama’s new policy requiring insurance companies to cover the costs of contraception for everyone? Tamara Holder thinks so. “I don’t know how this has gotten so complicated,” began Sekulow, “If the government came out and said that pork is a healthy white meat so we want everybody to have pork, would you require Yeshiva University to have pork?” “Of course not,” responded Holder, “But this is a health care plan issue and religious institutions can’t pick and choose what should be given in a health care plan.” “Of course they can,” quickly retorted Hannity, “It’s in their religious teachings.” Sekulow piled on saying, “The Catholic Church is a religious institution, and of course the y can.” This battle seems to wage on without much regard for the Constitution. Hopefully November can fix this issue.
Dr. Thomas Sowell
Sean was joined by author Dr. Thomas Sowell, author of the book, ”Intellectuals and Society”, to discuss his thoughts on the 2012 presidential election. “There has never been a time when I’d be more happy to be proven wrong,” began Sowell, “That is to see President Obama will be re-elected, which I think is a 50-50 possibility.” “So many people aren’t interested in the facts,” continued Sowell, “With Iran moving toward a nuclear bomb we’re still concerned with what Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife is saying?” “You’re such a phenomenal writer,” praised Hannity, “You need to do a lot more media.” “I highly recommend your book,” continued Hannity, “You talk about these ‘intellectuals’ deal with tax cuts and it’s really interesting.” “What’s so painful is that these people have the brains to deal with these que stions seriously,” laughed Sowell, “There are four administrations who’ve made the argument that the tax rates are so high that if one were to lower the tax rate the government would actually take in more revenue. Now, that’s a theory one could test if one were serious but we haven’t done that.” What Dr. Sowell is talking about is very true. There’s a constant debate in this country about changing tax policies but we haven’t really tested that theory since it worked so well under President Reagan. Perhaps it’s time to find a candidate willing to do just that. For more on Dr. Sowell's book, click here.
