Al Gore's Very Convenient Hypocrisy
Sean took the Friday airwaves kicking off the show by pointing out the hypocrisy of Al Gore. The former vice president sold his Current TV station to Al Jazeera, a network tied to an oil-producing Gulf monarchy. "He tried to get this deal done before the new tax hikes kicked in on January 1st," Sean also pointed out. "That puts Gore in a category like Warren Buffet - a tax increase advocate who does his best to avoid paying his taxes. What a bunch of phony hypocrites. What happened to pay your fair share? How many times have I said on this program that liberals are only generous with other people's money? Mr. Global Warming is willing to sell to a country that has its wealth because of its oil money! He's going to need to by a carbon offset. Carbon offsets are another phony liberal, clear my conscience thing. He should donate all of the money to charity," Sean concluded.
Pat Buchanan, author of Suicide of a Superpower, joined Sean to discuss the latest in the news. Sean told Pat that he's optimistic about the future of the United States and pointed out that the country has made many comebacks throughout history. Unfortunately, Pat explained that he felt we are not in the same America as we used to be. The world and country is changing and we need to act upon it before it's too late. Sean asked Pat about the hypocrisy displayed by Al Gore when he attempted to sell his TV network, Current TV to Al Jazeera before the fiscal cliff tax rates increase his taxes. Pat joked and said Gore is becoming a smart capitalist. Sean asked Pat about the possibility of another U.S. downgrade by Moody's. Pat and Sean discuss how the U.S. debt will hit $25 trillion by 2025 and why we need to demand that Obama produce a budget that helps to balance the budget.
