Jeremiah Wright On President Obama's Faith
A new report in The New York Times revealed that a GOP super PAC was looking at a proposal to run ads linking President Obama to his friend Reverend Jeremiah Wright, around the time of the Democratic National Convention. Of course, the Obama campaign's initial reaction was panic. The President's chief spin doctor David Axelrod quickly responded on Twitter at 5:45 yesterday morning. He wrote, "Stunning! Will Mitt Romney stand up, as John McCain did? Or allow the purveyors of slime to operate on his behalf?" Governor Romney has rejected the idea of these ads. Author Ed Klein, who has blown the lid off of Obama's relationship with Wright, joined Sean and discussed the reverend's feelings on Obama's faith. “When I asked the Reverend Wright about this whole question of Islam and Christianity. He said, well, you know, Barack Obama was steeped in Islam. He knew a lot about Islam from his childhood. But he knew very little about Christianity,” Klein told Sean.

Candidate Ted Cruz
Sean invited Ted Cruz to the program to talk about his candidacy for Senate in Texas. Sean announced on the show that he was officially endorsing Cruz for Senate. In January 2011, Ted Cruz filed to run for U.S. Senate based on his proven record of fighting for conservative principles and winning on a national level. He is running for the Senate to stand up and fight to defend liberty, preserve the Constitution, and stop federal overreach. From 2003-08, Ted served as the Solicitor General of Texas, the chief lawyer for the State before the U.S. Supreme Court and all the state and federal appellate courts. Cruz was the youngest Solicitor General in the nation, the longest serving Solicitor General in Texas, and the first Hispanic Solicitor General in Texas. For more on Ted Cruz please click here.
Sean spoke with Ed Rendell in the show's second hour about his thoughts on the President and why more Democrats and libertarians are unable to take the facts as they stand and hit the facts straight on. Sean and Rendell also discussed the economy and the need for bipartisan cooperation in order to solve some of the most fundamental problems facing the country. Sean wants the country, and Rendell, to ask themselves if we're better off than you were 4 years ago. Rendell argued that the first 18 months of any presidency are really that of the previous administration. Rendell believes that a big part of the problem is the lack of support the President received for his jobs bill. Sean thinks the President is in over his head.
