Rubio's Vice Presidential Freudian Slip
Sean kicked off Thursday's show by playing audio of a slip up Marco Rubio made in an interview at an event kicking off the University of Phoenix/National Journal Next America project. "If in four to five years, if I do a good job as vice president - I'm sorry, as senator - I'll have the chance to do all sorts of things," he said. The audience erupted into laughter at the slip up. Sean joked about it as well but felt that maybe it wasn't necessarily an accident. "I'm not sure, but I have a sneaky feeling that he might have done this on purpose," said Sean. Sean praised Rubio and even went so far as to throw his support behind the Florida Senator. "I want Marco Rubio for Vice-President. There are very few people that can captivate an audience like Rubio. He has a way of bringing you in - his speeches are phenomenal. He's funny, he's smart and he is a great conservative. I like the youth and energy that he would bring to the ticket. I don't want a boring guy up there in a media age," Sean added. You can watch video of Rubio's VP slip up by clicking here.
Cain On Ridiculous Moments In Obama's Presidency
Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain joined Sean and discussed the seemingly endless gaffes made by the Obama administration. Sean and Cain discussed Obama's claims that he ate dog meat, and how his campaign continually bashed Romney about the kennel he kept on the roof of his car during a family trip. The pair also addressed the many distraction tactics the President and his campaign have used to keep people away from the issues. Cain mentioned the numerous trips the President has taken to raise awareness of his re-election campaign - all paid for by American taxpayers.

Romney: Obama Has Failed On The Economy
Much has changed from the moment that Senator Obama accepted his party's nomination in Denver back in 2008. The Romney campaign is seeking to remind voters in Charlotte, North Carolina, about those changes as that is the site of the Democrats 2012 convention. We measure progress by how many people can find a job that pays the mortgage, as candidate Obama suggested, I think voters will likely take the president up on that proposition. Sean was joined by Mitt Romney from the campaign trail to discuss his strategy to defeat Obama if he should receive the GOP nomination. "Under this president, he was not able to turn around the economy. Fewer people have jobs and of course, there have been record number of home foreclosures. He said progress would be measured by whether people had rising incomes or falling incomes. Well, under this president, there have been falling incomes. Median household income is down $3,000. He also said, we would measure progress by whether there were new business start-ups, actually new start-ups have fallen by 100,000 a year under this president. So, by his own measures, he has failed and that's why I believe you'll see him being replaced in November 2012," Romney explained. "The president has failed on the measure that people care most about, which is a strong economy, creating good jobs and rising incomes. Obama is trying to find away to divert attention from the issue people care about which is the economy, and it won't work. Because the American people want someone who understands the economy, knows how to create jobs, can stop the massive growth of debt that we have in this country and can create a brighter future for the current generation and for the coming generations."
