Leading By Example?
Sean kicked off Friday's show by playing the audio from a terrific piece posted to Youtube by a group called ShePAC, an organization formed to help conservative women fight to change America. The video shows several clips of comedian Bill Maher, David Letterman and others making derogatory comments towards conservative women, especially Sarah Palin. To make matters worse, not only were these comments unnecessary, but they fly in the face of what President Obama has stated on numerous occasions that he wants to avoid - uncivil political discourse. ShePAC is calling on Obama to return the one million dollar campaign contribution given to him by Maher. Not only has the White House not spoken out against Maher's comments, but Obama's top adviser, David Axelrod, actually attacked Mitt Romney for not denouncing comments made by Rush Limbaugh. But wait, it gets better - not only did Axelrod go after Romney, he's also slated to appear on Bill Maher's television show! Talk abou t hypocrisy! You can watch the ShePAC video by clicking here.
Palin: I Don't Know How Obama Can Sleep At Night With Maher's 'Dirty Money'
Former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is perhaps the most vilified woman in all of politics. And despite the relentless barrage of personal attacks that she faces from the president's friends on the left, Governor Palin is among the many outspoken conservative women who Barack Obama is unwilling to defend. However, as we have seen in recent weeks, things are much different when one of the administration's political allies comes under scrutiny from the right. When that happens, the president is quick to tell the entire world exactly how he feels. When one of Obama's mega donors like Bill Maher tees off on conservative women like Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann, apparently that's fair game. On Tuesday, the president flat out ignored a reporter attempting to ask whether or not Bill Maher's $1 million Super PAC donation should be returned. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin shared her opinion of the Left's double standards with Sean on 'Hannity'. You can watch Sean's entire interview with Palin by clicking here.
Should We Preemptively Attack Iran?
Sean welcomed David Horowitz of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and Robert Naiman, the policy director at Just Foreign Policy to discuss Obama's backing (or lack thereof) of Israel. President Obama attempted to reassure Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week that his administration would not allow Iran to become a nuclear power, but the Israeli leader made it clear that his country must remain "master of its own fate" on whether to move forward with a military strike against the Iranian regime. Horowitz felt otherwise. "He has a proven record as a liar," he told Sean, "His entire presidency up until this point has been run by appeasing the genocidal enemies of Israel." Naiman strongly disagreed and felt that Iran did not pose an immediate threat to Israel. The debate became quite heated with Naiman and Horowitz going toe to toe.
