Gingrich: Ryan Is A Bold Choice
Former speaker and presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, is a big fan of Congressman Paul Ryan and Governor Romney’s great decision to nominate the Wisconsin congressman as his running mate. “In many ways I view Congressman Ryan as you, back in 1994,” began Hannity, “I mean that as a compliment, I mean he is someone who is out for real change.” “You can’t get a better pedigree than Congressman Ryan,” offered Gingrich, “What Governor Romney has done is show enormous coverage in saying we should have a big choice election and he has picked a really big choice Vice-Presidential nominee.” Pollster John Zogby thinks there is a Ryan bump in recent days with some swing states actually having the ticket ahead 49 to 42. “Clearly there is a Ryan bump,” offered John Zogby in an interview with Newsmax. “I couldn’t be happier with the choice,” summed Hannity, “Ryan is a great conservative thinker who represents the establishment of new ideas but what separates him from others is that he’s a policy wonk and he’s very detailed.” While the election is a long way from over, Congressman Ryan has given the traditional bump in the polls that comes with a defined ticket. It’ll be interesting to see where he takes this opportunity.
Battle in Florida
Congressman Allen West, one of the most outspoken members of Congress, joined Sean to talk about his campaign and the November elections. West’s challenger, Patrick Murphy, has been very aggressive in his efforts to unseat the popular Congressman, especially since this year’s campaign has West in a new district. In an earlier interview with Salon.com, Murphy argued his chances of victory were pretty good. “Obama won here with 52 percent of the vote,” told Murphy, “So, the voters are there and it’s just about letting people know there’s an alternative.” “You have been one of the shining stars in Congress,” began Hannity, “You’re in the 22nd congressional district and you’re right near West Palm Beach, this is a big district and I’m sure you’re ready to get your supporters out.” “We need to return a sense of individual industrialism,” offered West, “We need a strong national defense and I’m running on a strong record there.” “This is a defining moment for our country,” continued Sean, “This is a defining moment for Colonel West and we need more people like him in Congress.” This election is just as much a referendum on the future of our tax and spend policies as much as it is a race for Congressman West. If you don’t think your vote matters, think again.
Unmaking The American Dream
Author Dinesh D’Souza, author of “Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream,” joins Sean to talk about his movie, “2016,” a movie about Barack Obama’s family. Based on D’Souza’s controversial book, this movie sets out to show many examples of how President Obama has worked hard to limit America’s growth in an effort to “make things fair worldwide.” “I found this film fascinating,” praised Hannity, “The media hasn’t gone anywhere near this and it’s like the media is trying to ignore it.” “Yes, this is why it’s really important for conservatives to rally behind the film and get the book,” agreed D’Souza, “This book shows the real chilling prospects we face if he wins in November and the real Obama we will see comes after he’s re-elected.” If you haven’t read the book, you need to.
