Romney: Obama’s Failed Energy Policy
Sean was joined by Governor Mitt Romney to discuss rising gas prices and the presidential candidate’s latest criticisms of President Obama’s energy policies. “People are paying more than twice the price of gas when he first came into office,” began Hannity, “I don’t like the tone of President Obama’s remarks on this.” “He’s looking to deflect blame,” fought Romney, “He’s shut down drilling, cut down the number of federal leases by half and the number of permits he’s put out has been cut by two thirds. The American people are really suffering.” On the campaign, Hannity shared some good news with Governor Romney. “I saw in Rasmussen that you’re ahead of the President by five points,” praised Hannity, “Now Jim Messina is out there asking people to donate $3.” “I did see that,” laughed Romney, “He’s not raising as much money, and I saw th e article from Karl Rove today talking about the lack of enthusiasm for Obama, but I think people are frustrated with his failed policies.”For more on the Rasmussen poll, click here.

Senator Joe Lieberman
Sean’s friend and Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman came on the show to discuss America’s troubled foreign policies in Afghanistan. “What do you think of Afghani President Karzai telling Americans to leave all villages, “began Hannity, “Thanks a lot Karzai.” “I know they have something like a democracy over there so I know he feels he needs to speak for his people,” answered Lieberman, “It’s not good though, what more can I say, I think Karzai knows that he needs our support until they’re ready to protect themselves.” “Did you see this deal pending, apparently the United States government has been negotiating a prisoner exchange with the Taliban,” pressed Hannity, “Don’t you think this will encourage hostage taking?” “It’s a very bad message,” agreed Lieberman, “I think it’s premature to have the kinds of negotiations with the Taliban and, as muc h as we’re defeating them on the ground, they think we’re on their way out.” Lieberman continued, “We are on the way out quicker than I’d like us to be and whenever I go there I hear that from the people.” For more on the recent developments in Afghanistan, visit Fox News or click here.
Sean was joined by his friend Donald Trump to discuss President Obama’s energy policy. Sean criticized President Obama’s recent remarks where he said, “There are things you can do to save energy, we could save all the oil we were talking about getting from drilling if we just inflated our tires and got regular tune-ups.” “Unbelievable,” commented Trump, “He’s wrong. He doesn’t mention natural gas and yet we don’t use it and, by the way, if we started drilling we could have all we need.” Trump continued, “We could get gasoline down to $2 with some good leadership.” On politics, Donald Trump has come out supporting Governor Romney. “Will Governor Romney get enough votes to wrap this thing up,” asked Hannity, “It seems like it’s his in the end.” "He will win," offered Trump, "I was with him yesterday and he'll bring the oil prices down and he g ets China and he's the one person who gets it." While it's still too soon to tell, Donald Trump certainly seemed convinced.
