Guilfoyle and London: Should Obama Return The Money?
Dr. Cathleen London and Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle joined Sean to discuss their thoughts over President Obama’s seemingly ignoring controversial comments Bill Maher has made disparaging women, especially Sarah Palin. This story has gained traction in the last few days, even soliciting former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin’s daughter to write an article on her blog demanding President Obama call her and apologize for taking money from Maher. “David Axelrod is out there trying to justify the SuperPAC taking money from Maher,” began Hannity, “Is it appropriate for President Obama or the President’s PAC to take any money at all from this guy, does the President really care about the issue of women or is he just exploiting the issues when it suits him politically.” “This is a total double standard,” replied Guilfoyle, “He should give the money back and I’m not sure why everyone is trying to defend this.” Hannity continued, “I think you’re trying to force the PAC that’s not associated with the President to do something and I find that sort of distasteful,” argued Dr. London.
Senator Rick Santorum
Senator Rick Santorum joined Sean to discuss his campaign as it rolls on. “You came very close in Michigan and Ohio,” began Hannity, “There are some states coming up on the calendar that appear to favor Governor Romney.” “I think there are a lot of states we could do well in,” responded Santorum, “Here in Illinois no one gave us a chance and yet most of the polls have us within reach of pulling off an upset.” “A lot of people have been talking about no one getting enough delegates,” pressed Hannity, “Is that a realistic possibility and what does it mean if that does happen.” “I think that’s become more of likelihood,” agreed Santorum, “I can’t worry about that, I can only worry about making sure we nominate a conservative and not a moderate from Massachusetts.” While the debate rolls on, The Public Policy Polling group has Governor Romney with a 14 point advant age in Illinois as reported in Reuters this afternoon. If that victory were to hold true, the delegate count would fall heavily in Governor Romney’s favor. For more on the race in Illinois, click here.
Karl Rove: Down to Two?
“The Architect”, Karl Rove, stopped by the show to share his thoughts on the 2012 presidential campaigns. “Governor Romney had a good weekend in Puerto Rico,” began Hannity, “What do you think?” “This race is going to go on for some time,” acknowledged Rove, “We’ve spread this out dilibretly because Florida jumped early and a cascade of states wanted to jump out in front of them.” Rove continued, “This race has come down to two races though Gingrich and Paul will stay on for as long as they want to.” “Ohio shows Rick Santorum’s weaknesses,” pointed out Rove, “In Ohio he failed to file delegate rosters in a number of congressional districts therefore forfeiting delegates.” Being equally critical of Governor Romney Rove continued, “In a general election though the big issue for Governor Romney would be whether he could energize republican voters, especially in the rural areas.” To hear Sean’s complete interview with Mr. Rove, click here.
