Romney Goes On The Attack
Mitt Romney came out swinging today and attacked the White House of leaking classified information to the press for political gain and called for a special counsel to investigate who is responsible for giving away national security secrets to journalists. The former Massachusetts governor said the "conduct was contemptible" and "demands a full and prompt investigation by a special counsel." Sean was pleased to see the presumptive GOP nominee go on the attack, especially after enduring a vicious onslaught by the Obama campaign over the past few weeks. "Obama's poll numbers are disastrous and are not good for any incumbent. Obama's attacks on Romney and Bain Capital are starting to boomerang back at him. People are beginning to realize he is not the candidate of hope, change and optimism and are seeing him in a different light," said Sean.
Romney Puts Focus On Foreign Policy With Israel Trip
With 105 days to go until Election Day, the Romney campaign is temporarily switching focus from the economy to foreign policy. Mitt Romney is planning to make his first appearance on the international stage with a trip to Israel, England and Poland. It's no surprise that some of his stops will be with allies that the president has not exactly put on the forefront of his foreign policy agenda. That's not keeping the president's campaign from hammering the governor for his overseas trip, claiming the Romney visits are nothing more than a dog and pony show, and calling his foreign policy platform lacking in substance. Sean was joined by conservative columnist and policy impact director for the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs, Tina Korbe, and Iraqi veteran and Florida congressional candidate, Ron Desantis to talk about Mitt Romney's trip and the latest in the 2012 election.

Malkin vs. Holder
Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin and Tamara Holder joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline to debate the political reaction to the shootings in Colorado. "Malkin said the Left quickly moved to "blame righty" mode after movie theater shooting occurred. Liberals immediately started blaming conservatives like Sean and Rush Limbaugh for the attacks. Holder felt there was equal blame on both sides of the aisle when it came to political finger pointing after the attack. Tamara gave an example of when Michelle Bachmann falsely accused Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner's wife, of being connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. Sean jumped into the fray and said liberals used a false narrative to politicize the tragedy in Colorado. Sean listed a number of liberals who have rushed to point fingers at conservatives like Bill Maher and Salman Rushdie.
