Sen. Boxer 'Infuriated' By Sen. Paul's Attack On Hillary
Sen. Barbara Boxer admitted that she was furious after Sen. Rand Paul explained to Sec. Clinton yesterday that he would have fired her if he was president. Paul made the remarks during the Senate hearing on Clinton's response to the Benghazi terror attacks. "When I heard him say those words, I walked out of the hearing room, and listened to him behind the stage, because I was so infuriated at what that man said," Boxer said. "Boxer went on NBC, the extension of the Obama press office, to complain," Sean said commenting on the story. "I agree with Rand Paul. How was this attack a 'spontaneous eruption' as they claim? They just happened to have mortar rounds on them? An RPG? It was dumb from beginning and the lie just continued because they had nothing else and they didn't want this to be the big campaign issue that it should have been. And the media, as compliant as it is, slobbering over Obama, never got to the bottom of it," commented Sean.

The Over-Taxation Of America
Donald Trump joined Sean in the last hour of Thursday's show to discuss the over-taxation of America. Sean started the discussion about golfer Phil Mickelson. Mickelson made news this week when he commented that his tax rate is over sixty percent and how Florida has no state income tax, while California, his home state, does {Article. Sean asked Donald what would happen if he decided to leave NY due to high taxes, how many people would be affected? Donald said that he employs thousands of people and it would greatly impact many hardworking people if he were to move. Donald explained that New York would be booming if it were to reform taxes and allow fracking (a way to extract oil from the ground) in the region. Sean and Donald also discussed Obama's inaugural address. Trump believed Obama was hostile towards Republicans. According to Donald, if Republicans had let the country go over the fiscal cliff, Congress would have come together and put forth real solutions to fix the economy. Trump felt Obama never should have won the election and laments the fact that Mitt Romney did not resonate with voters. The real estate mogul felt that Mitt Romney would have been a great leader, but his debate performances during the election began to slide after the first debate. Donald said that in retrospect he wishes he had stayed in the GOP race for president. "The result of the 2012 election was terrible and I think I could have made a difference," Trump added.

Rand Paul Reacts To Tense Exchange With Hillary Clinton
Sean invited Senator Rand Paul, who had some harsh words for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her testimony about what happened in Benghazi on the night of September the 11th, 2012 that left the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans dead. Secretary Clinton fiercely defended U.N. ambassador Susan Rice who in fact misled the American people by blaming the consulate attack on some anti-Muslim YouTube video. The most disturbing moment of the secretary's testimony was when she seemed to indicate that it doesn't matter who was behind the attack. Senator Rand Paul told the secretary that she should be fired over her epic failure to lead her department. "One of the things we've suspected for a long time is that she did not read the cables. There were pleas for help, these were pleas for security coming from the ambassador, coming from Benghazi. They were turned down. Meanwhile, they're spending money in Europe on electrical cars and electrical charging stations, but they had real pleas for security and they turned them down," Paul explained to Sean on 'Hannity.'
