Rand Paul on Immigration
After appearing on Hannity last night to discuss his CPAC straw poll victory, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul gave a speech to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce this morning laying out more details of his plans on immigration reform. His speech was also timely, considering the RNC autopsy report released yesterday, pointing to the obvious GOP weakness in attracting minority voters. Senator Paul's plan does not call for national ID cards or mandatory e-verify, which he says causes "businesses to become policemen." One interesting point to note is that media reports throughout the day have been labeling this as, "Sen. Paul endorses path to citizenship for illegal immigrants." But if you read Rand Paul's speech, he never mentions a path to citizenship. For more on Rand Paul's stance on immigration please click here.
Cyprus Bail Out
Juan Williams, Fox News Political Analyst and Stuart Varney, Host of Varney & Co. on the Fox Business Network, joined Sean in the show's final hour to discuss the Cyprus bail out. As we watch the panic and mania develop in Cyprus as people storm banks attempting to get their money out before the government grabs it, we're left wondering if the U.S. might be headed on a similar path. The frightening thought is if Italy and Spain were to follow down the path of Greece, that would lead to the demise of the EU. Juan Willilams felt it would be impossible for our nation to head down the same path, because President Obama has created such an enormous and profitable economy and job force and has terrific job creation. Stuart practically jumped through the phone after hearing Juan's assessment and explained in detail how destructive this President is and has been, and how he is driving our nation to bankruptcy. Juan blamed tax breaks for the rich and blamed Bush for our current debt predicament. Sean explained that he believes the only way that we can survive this economy is to defund ObamaCare. If we let the plans of the Democrats crash and burn we can show how unsustainable their ideas truly are. Juan accuses Stuart and Sean of putting party ahead of country, which they vehemently denied.
Obama's Lavish Lifestyle
The White House remains closed for public tours as a publicity stunt on the part of the Obama administration attempting to inflict maximum visible pain in the wake of the sequester. But with each day that passes, this stunt becomes all the more ridiculous. Now the White House is upping the ante by insinuating that the White House Easter Egg Roll may be on the chopping block because of "funding uncertainty."
