Celebrating Labor Day
As millions of Americans celebrate Labor Day, countless others are suffering without direction or leadership. Last week, the Republican National Committee met to officially nominate Governor Mitt Romney as their candidate for President of the United States. With just 64 days until Election Day, Reuters is reporting that Governor Romney has pulled even with President Obama in the polls. Pundits are suggesting a lot of reasons for this, not the least of which was a widely praised convention that saw the best of the Republican Party. WIth that news, it's a good time to reflect on the successes of the week. Here are a few of Sean's highlights from his week at the convention.
Exclusive: 'The Hope & The Change'
In a special edition of 'Hannity', Sean played and discussed the new the new movie titled "The Hope and the Change." The hour long film, it's a product of Citizens United and highlights a large group of registered Democrat and independent voters who supported President Barack Obama back in 2008. Now, four years later, they are not buying into the hype, the hope or the change. The movie is going to premiere tomorrow in Tampa at the Republican National Convention. Then in September, just in time for our Election Day, the movie will be out in theaters. Sean was joined by the writer and director of the film, Steve Bannon as well as the film's producer David Bossie. "This is the most powerful documentary I have ever seen in my life," said Sean. "There is no way that anybody watches this film could vote for Barack Obama. It's impossible." To watch Sean's expose on "The Hope and The Change" please click here.
A few dozen demonstrators have camped out down the street from the site of the Republican Convention. Their camp site has been nicknamed "Romneyville." Protestors marched about 10 blocks from their encampment toward the Tampa Bay Times Forum, site of the Republican National Convention, when they were met by a line of armored sheriff's deputies and state troopers. The march was organized by the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign to protest the Republican convention and the party's policies, which demonstrators say favor corporations and the rich, and hurt the public interest and the poor. Lauren, one of Sean's radio producers, hit the streets of Tampa and interviewed several of the Romneyville protestors. You can listen to an audio montage of her interviews by clicking here.

Juan Williams vs Ann Coulter
Juan Williams and Ann Coulter join Sean to discuss Juan’s criticism of Ann Romney that has made headlines last night when he said that Governor Romney’s wife was a “corporate wife.” “I don’t even know what to say to you,” began Williams, “You and I are good friends, but why would you say something like ‘she hasn’t worked a day in her life’ type comment, why would you say that?” “My remarks were a criticism of her speech and not Mrs. Romney,” defended Williams, “I was talking about the economic argument that she was trying to say, that she knew the economic struggles of people trying to make it today, I just didn’t buy it.” “I don’t see this corporate wife thing being such a big deal, I must say,” laughed Coulter, “It was a great speech and Juan is the liberal and he needed to find something to criticize.” To listen to this interview in its entire ty, click here.
