Is Obama Becoming Unhinged?
A freshly charged Sean Hannity took the national airwaves after a restful holiday weekend – ready for the next 56 days before Election Day. Sean started the show by commenting on President Obama's remarks at a Labor Day rally in Wisconsin. Obama lashed out at Republicans, accusing them of being unwilling to cooperate with his socialist agenda. "When it comes to just about everything we've done to strengthen our middle class, to rebuild our economy, almost every Republican in Congress says no. Even on things we usually agree on, they say no. If I said the sky was blue, they say no. If I said fish live in the sea, they'd say no," Obama said at the rally. "The president is really becoming unhinged," Sean said incredulously. "Republicans are saying 'no' to your debt, 'no' to your reckless deficits, 'no' to health care, 'no to cap and tax and 'no' to yet another proposed failed stimulus plan. This president simply cannot take any criticism!" said Sean.
Political Tsunami For Democrats
Michael Barone, senior Political Analyst for the Washington Examiner and pollster John Zogby spoke with Sean in the show's second hour about the possibility of Republicans regaining control of the House. Barone and Zogby both felt that it's entirely possible for Republicans to gain the necessary number of seats to win the majority in the House. "Sean I'm feeling kinda bad in the pit of my stomach for a lot of Democratic members of Congress who I've gotten to know over the years...because they're gonna lose," Barone commented. Zogby told Sean that "this is the greatest advantage we've seen for Republicans since I've been doing this. The Democratic enthusiasm just isn't there right now. The only negative news I see for Republicans is that most people are simply voting against Democrats rather than voting for Republicans."
Terry Jones: "Burn A Koran Day"
Terry Jones, a controversial Florida preacher, started a firestorm of debate on Facebook when he called for people around the world to set fire to copies of the Koran. General Patraeus warned that the images of burning the Koran could endanger the lives of U.S. troops. Sean invited Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice and Michael Ghouse to the program to discuss the issue. "This will do nothing," Michael Ghouse said, "the right thing to do is pray for their good will." Sekulow concurred, adding, "This is an unnecessary act of provocation. This, in my view, is a very bad publicity stunt."

As economy struggles, confidence in Obama wanes
CHICAGO (CBS): If there is any place President Obama is going to get the benefit of the doubt, it's here in his hometown. Yet public opinion polls show that even here, confidence has slipped. Though they're a bit hesitant to talk about it. When one resident was asked how Mr. Obama was doing, the answer was not very convincing. "Don't ask me that question." On Monday the president was just 90 miles away in Milwaukee, unveiling yet another $50 billion infrastructure improvement package . That's in addition to what's already underway in Chicago and around the nation. "Our infrastructure's pathetic; especially the railroads," said Chicagoan Paul Keck, adding the money would be well spent to improve things like roads, bridges and railways. Tonight CBS 2 spoke with people power shopping the Magnificent Mile, relaxing in Bucktown and stocking up at a South Side supermarket. "You have to consider where we were," Chicagoan... more >
