Amy Kremer and Tamara Holder debate the entitlement mentality that exists in this country. “Have we lost sight of what it means to get up and work hard,” began Hannity, “Are we missing the great talents that people are born with.” “We have half the country that doesn’t pay income tax,” continued Hannity, “And we have people out there who are talking about government handouts as ‘Obama Bucks.’” “This is sad,” agreed Holder, “But you guys look for the worst case scenario and put them on TV.” Kremer countered, “Obama wants to redistribute the wealth and one thing that people forget is that he had a Democrat controlled Senate and a Democrat controlled House and he could’ve done anything he wanted but he shoved Obama Care down our throats.” “The President has been in office for nearly four years and he hasn’t turned anything around,” continued to p ile on Kremer, “Reagan turned it around.” Even NBC had to report this month that the economy has grown a miniscule 1.3 percent in the April to June quarter. With the hungry mouths of those Americans who feel the government should care for them, 1.3% is far from enough to feed everyone. A fact not lost on Governor Mitt Romney as he struggles to remind Americans that they do have an alternative direction this November.
Ohio Governor John Kasich joins Sean to discuss the November elections from the ground in Ohio. “I don’t pay a lot of attention to polls,” began Kasich, “This is very close though and that’s why these guys are in the state so much that I think I could start collecting income tax from them.” “You’ve told me very early that you were going to make hard decisions when you got into office,” praised Hannity, “How much better would it be for you if Romney were to become President.” “I was in business for many years before I got back into politics,” explained Kasich, “When there is giant debt and uncertainty, the potential is that this paralyzes people.” “When you put somebody in who creates jobs, I believe he’ll help us far more than we’re doing right now,” offered Kasich, “We absolutely have the wind in our face.” It’s important to note, as Se an points out, that no Republican in recent times has ever won the White House without winning Ohio. It’s for that reason that Governor Mitt Romney and President Obama have been crisscrossing the Buckeye State trying to gain some leverage.

Netanyahu for President
Issue Sean kicked off Thursday’s show angrily talking about the issues in the Middle East. Earlier this week Benjamin Netanyahu made headlines with his remarks to the United Nations. “Militant Islamists want to end the modern world,” suggested Netanyahu, “They’re all intolerant but light will penetrate the darkness.” “I wish BeBe was our President,” laughed Hannity, “Or at least somebody with the morale clarity of him.” “The speech that Netanyahu gave was the one that President Obama should’ve given,” continued Hannity. “It’s not when they get the bomb,” mentioned Netanyahu, “We need a clear red line where Iran will back down.” “That’s the speech that President Obama should’ve given.” Sean spent some time earlier this week questioning whether President Obama was just disengaged with foreign policy. “We’ve been saying fo r weeks that the White House has been covering up the Libyan attacks,” offered Hannity, “This week Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made the announcement that Al Qaeda was involved.” Watch Sean’s program from this week where he strongly criticized the Obama administration for failing to get tough on terrorism.” President Obama needs to show true leadership in the coming months if he wants to convince those who take national security seriously that he’s the man to keep us safe.
