Sean Takes Issue With Chris Christie Comments
As the New York City area begins to assess the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, many have been impressed with the leadership shown by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Christie, usually an Obama critic, praised the president for his storm response. "When the president does things that deserve praise, I will give him praise. And when the president does things that deserve scorn, I'll give him scorn," Christie explained during one press conference. While Sean praised Christie for his leadership he was quick to criticize the governor over comments he made regarding the apparent politicizing of this natural disaster by Democrats. Christie told a large gathering of reporters that he "has a job to do. If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me." "I'm sure the governor needs more federal money for the state and I understand that. And it's well deserved for the people who have such a heavy tax burden in New Jersey. I found Christie's comments kinda parochial. This is a historically important election. You've got to care about it. We can take care of our friends in New Jersey and care about the election as well. New Jersey people are tough - they're known for being tough. It matters a hell of a lot who the next president is of the United States. It matters to the people of New Jersey big time! This is a consequential election - this is a tipping point election," Sean added.
President Obama 'Offended' Over Benghazi Criticism?
President Obama just keeps digging himself into a deeper hole when it comes to his administration's cover-up of the Benghazi terrorist attack. During an interview when asked about the changing story that keeps coming out of the White House, he did what he does best - deny, deflect, and not tell the truth. Sean was joined with reaction to Obama's statements by former presidential candidate Fred Thompson. "what did the president know and when did he know it. Specifically, on the afternoon and evening of September 11th of this year?" Thompson asked. "He supposedly should have been in the situation room calling the ultimate shots with regard to this, and they hide behind fog of war, we've got to put everything together, conflicting reports. He knows what he did. He knows what he instructions he gave. He knows what feedback he got at the time, and to not go before the American people and the parents of these -- of these young people who go out there and put their lives on the line is absolutely disgraceful, and he's getting away with it until after this election," Thompson added.
