"We've done a lot of dumb things over the course of history as a nation," Sean said kicking off Thursday's show. "The government borrowing 46 cents for every dollar, not tapping into our oil resources in this country - politicians are dumb. They're power hungry," said Sean. "I wouldn't say everyone is dumb, but there are certainly people who are not aware. There are people in this country who are in a hypnotic trance who are unaware of events around them. There are people who are suseptible to propaganda, distortion and misinformation. The Muslim Brotherhood leader of Egypt is getting 20 of the greatest fighter jets ever put together in human history - the F16. Plus 200 Abrams tanks and $1.5 billion in U.S. aid. And on top of all of this, we're paying for those jets and tanks! We are paying to give this radical, extremist leader all of these things! It's just stupid! There is no other word for it!" Sean said angrily.
The Cold, Hard Truth About The Obama Economy
The Commerce Department announced yesterday that our economy shrank at a rate of .1 percent in the last quarter of 2012. That is the first time a contraction has happened in more than three years. With the unemployment rate still high at 7.8 percent and consumer confidence now in decline, there was only one way for the Democrats to react - by blaming Republicans. It all started with Jay Carney during the White House press briefing when he said the economy was facing a major headwind and that headwind being the Republicans in Congress. Moments later, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi released the statement saying, "Today's disappointing GDP report is a direct result of the economic uncertainty created by the House Republicans' strategy of obstruction and manufactured crises." "When will they ever going to take blame? When will Nancy Pelosi, Jay Carney wake up and realize Obama now has been in office for more than four years? Unbelievable," said Sean. GOPAC President David Avella and the former Clinton economist at the Harvard Kennedy School, Jeffrey Frankel joined Sean with reaction to this news. To watch the entire discussion, please click here.
Malkin On F16/Tank Delivery To Egypt
Sean has been a very vocal critic of President Obama's plan to send F16 fighter jets and 200 Abrams tanks to Egyptian Brotherhood leaders. Sean sat down with Michelle Malkin to discuss this plan. "How wrong has this President been about what was going to happen with the Arab Spring," began Hannity, "Do we even know who will have control of these weapons we're sending over?" "For Americans, we remember this is the second anniversary of Obama basking in the praise of this transition," quickly replied Malkin, "But the truth is that this dictatorship looks a lot like the last one." "We pretty much know where these weapons will go and what they'll do," added Malkin, "The young freedom fighters in Egypt are holding signs that said "Obama, you jerk, the Muslim Brotherhood is killing Egyptians" and I'm not sure why this cry isn't being heard around the world!" "This is either willful blindness or a tacit hope for the exact kind of consequence we end up wi th, either way this is a horrible position for America to be in." "This is not going to end well," a somber Hannity predicted, "This is really the height of irresponsibility." Sean will continue to monitor this story but it doesn't look like the mainstream media is very interested in stopping this crazy move.
