Libs Don't Flip-Flop...They “Evolve”
Sean kicked off that last show of the week in a upbeat mood. Sean was particularly pleased to see that Democrats might abandon North Carolina all together as the place for their nominating convention after Obama recently announced his support for gay marriage. Given the depth of distaste over North Carolina’s recent anti-gay vote among Democratic voters, the Democratic National Committee is considering leaving the state before Democratic grassroots advocates flock to Charlotte for mass protests that would send more local voters over to the Romney camp.

They think only Republicans flip-flop,” Sean added.
Obama's Announcement Could Spell Trouble
Dr. Butler and Dr. King Dr. Anthea Butler of the University of Pennsylvania Associate Professor of Religion and Dr. Alveda King of Priests for Life join Sean to talk about President Obama’s flip-flopping on the issue of gay rights. “President Obama was for gay marriage in 1996 but then he became neutral and then he said marriage should be between a man and a woman,” setup Hannity, “This has all been done for political expediency.” “The things that President Obama are saying and doing aren’t necessarily surprising but they are astounding,” offered Dr. King, “Everything he’s done is for political expediency.” “You evolve your opinion if you’re liberal but the media never describes a conservative as “evolving,” pressed Hannity. “I think what’s interesting is how this will play out with the African American community,” offered Butler, “I wonder if some of the se churches will go along with him on this.” Butler continued, “There are many black churches who are completely against this but there are other moderate churches that say this is okay.” “I’ve had pastors call me and say they can’t stand this,” countered Dr. King, “This has been a crazy week and the whole thing is out of whack.” It will be very interesting to see where this issue takes President Obama over the coming weeks.
Former presidential candidate Herman Cain, author of the new book 9-9-9 Army of Davids, joined Sean to discuss race in the 2012 campaign. “There are a lot of issues surrounding race,” began Hannity, “The media has ignored.” “The media has so much invested in this failed president,” quickly responded Cain, “I don’t have a lot of sympathy because I climbed the corporate ladder, which was mostly white, and I haven’t looked back and that’s what most people have done.” Herman Cain has certainly done all he can to build his credentials and he seems to be putting many of those earned resources toward the support of Governor Romney.
