Newt Gingrich joined Sean in the show's final hour to discuss his resignation from the presidential race. Newt described the many failed policies of President Obama, which are not only crippling our economy, but are dangerous for our nation. Obama's comments on the war on terror and the weakening of our national defense are elements that are tactically taking apart of our national safety. Newt touched on the Bin Laden sensationalism that Obama is proving is critical to his re-election. "The next President will have to face challenges in the area of radical Islam, which is growing in the Middle East country by country, that no other President in our history has had to face," Gingrich told Sean. The Israel/Iran war, as Sean predicts is inevitable, and our reliance on foreign sources of energy are also issues facing our next Commander-In-Chief. Sean briefly discussed with Newt his relationship with Mitt Romney, especially now after a particularly brutal GOP nominating process. Newt made it clear that Romney fought his way to the nomination and that the former Governor of Massachusetts has been at it for 6 years and deserves the respect that this position deserves.

Obama: 'Forward' Slogan, Backwards Policies
As Obama begins begging voters for another four years in office, the Romney campaign is reminding us all about his many failures, particularly when it comes to the economy. “The Obama campaign may want to reconsider that new slogan of theirs, you know the one -- "Forward," because in the past three and-a-half years, his policies have taken us backwards,” Sean said jokingly. Sean welcomed Fox Business Network contributor Sandra Smith and Fox News contributor Monica Crowley to discuss in detail Obama's failed attempts to jump start the U.S. economy. “Stubbornly high unemployment, home foreclosures at record highs, median income at almost record lows now. When you look at every economic indicator, Sean, it's in the negative column and has been over the last three-and-a-half years,” Crowley told Sean. Smith agreed and said that “the business community is terrified right now. I mean, businesses are sitting on piles of cash and unwilling to spend it. Small business confidence i s still very, very low. And most recent small business surveys show their number one concern is the government's involvement in business.” To watch Sean's entire conversation with Crowley and Smith please click here.
Occupy May Day Fizzles
Michelle Fields and Tamara Holder joined Sean to discuss why "Occupy May Day" fizzled across the the globe. Sean played audio from numerous freelance reporters recorded from many of the "Occupy" locations to find out what participants were actually protesting. Oddly enough, most of the demonstrators didn't know why they were there at all. Many protesters made outlandish comments about how they believed the U.S. needed to mimic Cuba's government and adopt some of their fundamental ideas to help people get by. Tamara felt many of the demonstrators had lower education availability and weren't able to answer questions posed to them in the best way possible. Listen to the interviews yourself by clicking here.
