Occupy May Day
Ron Meyer of the Young Americas Foundation and Scott Keyes of Think Progress and Michelle Fields of the Daily Caller, discussed the Occupy May Day movement with Sean. Michelle gave Sean direct audio and video information various protest locations from downtown Manhattan. Scott argued that because the 1% get the rewards of the 93% of the capital gains in our nation, these people do have something to protest. Ron argued that our nation gives everyone the opportunity to succeed and to punish success sets the mentality and mind set for a welfare state. Keyes added that there does not appear to be one cohesive theme, and there has only been about 200 people who have turned up to protest so far today.

Former game show host Chuck Woolery joined Sean in the final hour of Wednesday's program. Woolery has started a company called restartconrgess.org. He started the company to bring Congressmen and women to a place where they have to answer to the many choices and decisions that they make on our behalf. Woolery really believes that we need to have term limits so that we have elected officials concerned more with doing a good job than worrying about their re-election prospects. Sean also discussed being in media and entertainment and coming out as a Conservative in a field where you have to be liberal to be cool and accepted. Woolery and Sean talked about people who are RINOS and have voted their way around DC to stay in their cushy positions with their cushy titles. Chuck shared his feelings towards the president, and explained he had many unanswered questions surrounding Obama's motives, background and experience - making him a questionable candidate for re-election.
Freedom From Washington
Senator Joe Lieberman joined Sean to update his friend on his plans for the last few months in Washington. “The greatest thing that happened to you, I think, is when you won re-election as an independent,” laughed Hannity, “Seriously, it was like a weight lifted off you, you never seemed more free.” “It’s true,” laughed Lieberman, “It was a pretty rough day when I lost that primary but when I won re-election in November, that was the most proud I’ve been in my political life.” Sean pressed Senator Lieberman on who he’ll be voting for in this year’s Presidential. “You won’t tell us who you’re going to vote for will you,” laughed Sean, “I think you should announce on this program who you’re going to be voting for.” “No, that’s the beauty of leaving Washington,” quickly shot back Lieberman, “I’m just a regular voter in November and I’m honestly undecided. “ Senator Lieberman’s endorsement would definitely be valuable in this year’s battle but it’s clear that Senator Lieberman is enjoying his new-found freedom and seems genuinely excited to leave Washington.

Joseph Isadore "Joe" Lieberman (born February 24, 1942) is the junior United States Senator from Connecticut. First elected to the Senate in 1988, Lieberman was elected to a fourth term on November 7, 2006. In the 2000 United States presidential election, Lieberman was the Democratic nominee for Vice President, running with presidential nominee Al Gore, becoming the first Jewish candidate on a major American political party presidential ticket. The Gore–Lieberman ticket won the popular vote but ultimately failed to gain the electoral votes needed to win the controversial election. Lieberman ran for re-election to the U.S. Senate while he was also Gore's running mate, and he was re-elected by the voters of Connecticut. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in the 2004 presidential election.
