Sean was joined by Utah Senator Orrin Hatch to discuss his re-election efforts and the importance of the 2012 election. “I’ve said there are three stages to saving America,” began Hannity, “We need to guarantee that we have a new president, the other is that we elect good conservative candidates to the Senate and the House.” Hannity continued, “You’ve been in the Senate a long time, have you ever seen us go this long without a budget?” “No,” quickly answered Hatch, “The President has submitted four budgets and each of them has failed so you can see how serious he is about getting one done.” Historically, if the president’s budget failed, Congress and the White House would negotiate until one was passed. That hasn’t been possible in nearly four years! Sean brought up another very interesting point about the 2012 elections when he said, “I got an email from Jenny Thomas, Clarence Thomas’ wife, who said that the justice would not be on the Supreme Court if not for Orrin Hatch, that’s important to note. “That’s true and I believe that the next president will have two nominees to the court,” noted Hatch, “It’s possible that there be three or four.” In all of our discussions about budgets and Obama Care and free-wheeling spending, what gets lost in the shadows is the US Supreme Court and the power they yield.
I Like Michelle Malkin
Sean was joined by Michelle Malkin and Sally Kohn to discuss Kohn’s new article, “Why I like Michelle Malkin.” You wrote a column called “I Like Michelle Malkin,” began Hannity, “Now the only people who attack her are left-wing nut cases.” “I do,” laughed Kohn, “I wrote the article in response to Michelle’s piece where she attacked Mitt Romney for referring to Obama as a ‘nice guy’” “All I was saying is that I think we can disagree without being disagreeable,” summed Kohn. “I don’t need lectures from Sally or anyone else about how to get along with liberals or progressives,” countered Malkin, “I’m not going to apologize for not mincing my words, there’s no parallel to what I do versus the smear merchants who are out there.” “I’m not interested in whose smears are worse,” countered Kohn, “I’m not going to fi ght.” You should read both articles and determine for yourself if Kohn really does like Michelle Malkin, it seems as if the liberal media might be striking again.

What did Wisconsin Mean?
Voters on Hannity.com are split over what last night’s victory in Wisconsin means. Half the voters mean that the anti-union movement is growing and the other half think it means that President Obama will have trouble winning in November. Sean had the chance to interview Governor Walker. “The President was afraid to campaign for your opponent and you even got 40% of union households,” began Hannity, “What does this mean for 2012?” “We had the courage to take on the heat and special interests,” responded Walker, “I think the voters want this in their leaders on the national level.” “Is this a crippling blow to organized labor,” questioned Hannity, “Has the country come to grips with our spending?” “I think this was a triumph for the middleclass tax payers,” offered Governor Walker. This victory has definitely set Governor Romney up for success in Wisconsin, if he’s wi lling to really take a look at Governor Walker’s success story of tackling the tough issues ahead.
