Dodging The White House Correspondents Dinner
This past weekend the White House hosted its annual Correspondents Dinner - a celebration of the media elite, is complete with awards for excellent coverage, but what ends up taking all of the headlines is the president's humorous address and the subsequent comedic routine by the host. Sean kicked off Monday's show by explaining to his audience that he had no interest in ever attending a correspondents dinner. "I did not hear or watch Jimmy Kimmel. I did not watch the stars or the media elite. I missed it. I was with my kids all weekend and couldn't have been happier. Hollywood, most of the media and the White House is full of liberals - why would I want to go there when I could be with my family?" Sean asked rhetorically. "It wasn't even a tough decision...not even a close call. I have no desire to meet Hollywood stars - zip. Hearing the president tell lame jokes about eating dogs doesn't do it for me. It's been my mission since I started in broadcasting to duck an d dodge this dinner. One year however I was told I had to go - there was no more getting out of it as I had used every excuse in the book. That year however, God blessed me and I got sick the day before and couldn't go. So I've been able to duck and dodge this dinner and I'm kinda proud of it," Sean said happily.
No They Can't
John Stossel, Fox Business Network Host and Author of "No They Can't: Why Government Fails but Individuals Succeed," joined Sean in the final hour of Monday's program. Stossel invalidated the blief that more government leads to progress and profit. "The social welfare state does not help people learn how to provide for themselves," Stossel explained. The Fox Business host pointed explained that a large majority of our country needs a good swift kick in the butt. "The desire for people to have more from the government and perform less work is the continuing theme in our nation under Obama, and the way to break free from this will be to vote him out," Stossel told Sean.

Would Romney Have OK'd Osama Raid?
President Obama has shown he's willing to politicize student loans, contraception, the Trayvon Martin shooting, virtually anything else he finds politically expedient. So, t's not surprising that the Obama campaign has released a new video, praising our brave president for ordering that strike that killed Osama bin Laden. But at the same time, that ad -- which is narrated by former President Bill Clinton -- suggests that Mitt Romney would not have made the same decision. The Obama campaign asked Clinton to star in this ad, which is ironic, considering that according to the 9/11 commission, Clinton took a pass on at least three opportunities to kill or capture bin Laden when he was president. Also back in 2008, Obama criticized Hillary Clinton for politicizing National Security matters, including the hunt for Osama bin Laden.
