9:00 pm
but that is in show busy. thanks for watching us. please remember the spin stops right here. we are definitely looking out for you. >> sean: over the weekend it appeared that former governor mitt romney had stopped the santorum surge. romney won both main caucuses as well as the cpac straw poll as we look ahead it would be not counting him out. in michigan, santorum leads by a wide margin according to the latest survey according to left leaning policy polling group. a new gallup poll shows romney and santorum are in a stistical dead heat romney has 32%, santorum has 30.
9:01 pm
joining me is former clinton advisor, dick morris. what you what do you think that is happening? it seems that sarah palin when she was speaking this weekend was asked the question about governor romney. she some not certain he is a conservative. >> i heard a great jock. liberal and moderate and conservative walks into bar and they bartender says hi, mitt. >> sean: are you done? >> but i do believe that the vote that has always been by second between santorum and gingrich is now tipped to santorum. what i find significant on the cpac results was not that the romney won. i think that is okay. that santorum had twice gingrich's vote. so at some point newt gingrich
9:02 pm
has to get it that his staying in the race is actually helping romney. >> sean: you think there is any chance -- we've seen so much flip-flopping and back and forth in this race. one debate, one event can change it again? >> it could. it certainly could. there is one on march 22nd right before the michigan primary. i think it is true that if gingrich is able to do well in those two states he could stay in and be competitive on super tuesday. i think at the moment he certainly is fading and i think he is sending a message to mitt romney. until now romney has skated by on bisect go or try sexting with paul the anti-romney vote and negative attacks knocking out gingrich one by one. now what he has to do convince
9:03 pm
conservatives that he is conservative. the way to do that is address realtime issues that is confronting the united states and talk about the law of the sea treaty coming up for ratification in may. giving half the offshore oil revenues to the united nations. talking about abolishing the department of education using it for teachers fund. criticize the administration letting it interfere with israel. if i were president right now is what i would do. it's not enough to be staples and we know about the business stuff. if i were president right now, issue 12 statements, two or three days apart over the whole month what i would do if i ran the zoo. >> sean: you might want to call it that. i almost think he has to almost put things down. i've been watching after he wins
9:04 pm
a primary and caucus and he gives a speech and he is clearly energized. he's been going after obama directly. i wonder if he would take those promises, in other words, to balance the budget, not raise taxes, xyz, put them on paper, this is my pledge to conservatives. that would be good thought. i hope he is watching. that could be a good move to make. i was thinking what he really needs to do is inject himself into the controversies and issues going on. for example, he should say, it's not just repeal obamacare, but the obama administration is pressuring doctors to reveal the medical records of their patients so they can set up a national computer base. this violates the health care act. if i were president i would stop it. he needs realtime effective be president for a month and show conservatives what it would be
9:05 pm
like. >> sean: biggest issue that people get very emotional about, because it violates the third amendment, religious freedom is this so-called accommodation on the contraceptive mandate. maybe even front a lawsuit to stop it because it is such a clear violation of liberty. >> that would be a good thought but i think conserves are missing the point about this. obama did not make a mistake in this mandate. it's a deliberately calculated move on his part. democrats realize that abortion is not a winner for them. now it's ten points more pro-life than pro-choice because of the publicity of the anti-abortion people, possibly because of the aging of the population. the point is it's a loser issue. what they are trying to do now is replace with contraception. so after santorum won iowa,
9:06 pm
should states have the right to ban contraception. where did that come from? then you web the abc debate where george stephanopolous went after romney trying to pin him down on contraception. romney said, george, nobody wants -- but do they have the theoretical power to do it? five minutes people were laughing at him. then i think he comes out with this thing on contraception. they want to create it and it's no coincidence, it was after minnesota an why that were santorum's victory. they want to create the impression that republicans will ban contraception. but they are bringing it out there. this move on obama's part was part of injecting that issue. >> sean: did they miscalculate. it's backfired and people of all faiths.
9:07 pm
we'll be debating this tonight. they are saying, you know what, we believe in the first amendment and religious freedom. i agree with you. i think he weighed both choices here and when it came down to contraception versus religious freedom. >> he played it wrong. it's part of a broader strategy of raising social issues against the republican nominee. >> sean: this is where the political consultants behind closed doors, you artificially manufacturer this issue and divide the american electorate? >> that is what they are thinking. the problem is -- he can't run on economic issues obviously. so what he is going to try to do and run against republican on the social issues. if romney is the candidate he can't do that. if santorum is the candidate he can.
9:08 pm
>> sean: you have to have a really dark, dark place to go to inside your mind -- i don't mean that in an evil way. >> as they say it takes one to know them. >> sean: thanks a lot. senator john mccain has reaction to the assassination of two israeli diplomats. he says iran is behind the bombings and what is the latest in the situation with americans held hostage. despite the president's accommodation to the crest mandate. it rages on as catholic leaders say they are moving forward with lawsuits. that and much more as hannity continues. mornin'. i guess i'm helping them save hundreds on car insurance. it probably also doesn't hurt that i'm a world-famous advertising icon. cheers!

9:10 pm
that over time, having high cholesterol, plus diabetes or high blood pressure or family history of early heart disease, can put them at increased risk for plaque buildup. and they'd see that it's more important to get their cholesterol where their doctor wants. and why for these patients, when diet and exercise alone aren't enough, i prescribe crestor. adding crestor lowers bad cholesterol by up to 52%. and is also proven to slow plaque buildup. >> announcer: crestor is not right for everyone. like people with liver disease or women who are nursing, pregnant or may become pregnant. simple blood tests will check for liver problems. tell your doctor about other medicines you're taking or if you have muscle pain or weakness. that could be a sign of a rare but serious side effect. >> is your cholesterol where your doctor wants? ask your doctor if crestor is right for you. >> announcer: if you can't afford your medication, astra zeneca may be able to help.

9:12 pm
>> sean: and the tension between israel and iran is escalating after two separate bombing attempts were made in india and the country of georgia. benjamin netanyahu says he is sure he knew is behind the attacks. we witnessed two attempts of terrorism. iran is behind the attacks and largest terror export they are the world. iran denies responsibility after recent reports have surfaced that israeli officials may be preparing for a strike on nuclear facilities in iran. and joining me now with reaction
9:13 pm
john mccain. senator, thanks for being with us. >> thank you, an interesting day. >> first of all, $800 million. i don't call it arab spring, i call it the arab winter. we have seen elections in egypt. woo should we give one taxpayer dollar to this cause? >> first of all i want to extremists or not in power. their power is being wielded by the military junta that took over and last vestiges of mu bar eastbound regime where the u.s. citizens have to go to the embassy. it's not muslim brotherhood that is doing this. it's the remains of the mubarak regime. our relations are very important with egypt. it is in our interests to have good relations with egypt.
9:14 pm
you might remember we broke off relations with pakistan in the '90s and it didn't turn out very well. the relations are important. we need to help them move forward. i'm very unhappy as americans are about the treatment of our ngos and freedom house and national endowment to democracy but for us not to be involved in the world.... >> sean: the "new york times" reported over the weekend that in fact the muslim brotherhood is seeking to out of the military leaders. they were now elected as islamic radicals have been elected by the people and preparing for war with israel and implementing sharia law as the law of the land. don't we recognize the danger of giving money that could be used against our closest ally there?
9:15 pm
>> there is significant risk. in tunisia it's a muslim government. they are moderate and they are friendly to the united states of america. that is the case where our assistance and their moving forward with free and fair elections, they don't have a dictator ruling them again. in the case of egypt the muslim brotherhood is split. they have not obtained power yet. there are groups that want to have good relations with us. israel is a jewish state. so let's wait and see and hope that we can guide them on the path to a country that is not ruled by a brutal dictator but has a democracy and all those principles. i'm not saying it's going turn out right, but i can tell you this was untenable with the position mubarak. it was matter of time before he was leaving. >> sean: granted, he had been in power but he kept peace with
9:16 pm
israelis for 30 years but prepare for war in israel. other extremists have been elected to power. >> mubarak kept peace but pummeled them continually and tried to enhance his position in power. >> sean: you think the muslim brotherhood is going to better? >> i'm not clear how the muslim brother shooed going to be. i know they will be an elected governmental. are they going to go to the other way that have thrown off the yoke of dictators. >> sean: it shows the egyptian people, 75% wanted sharia law as the law of the land. how can sharia law be compatible
9:17 pm
with american values inasmuch as if we're going to give them $800 million when we can least afford it? >> first of all, i'm not clear what kind of sharia law they are going to impose. there are many secular and democratically inclined people in that government. there are extremists that hopefully they will not achieve power. mubarak regularly beat up israel. he stoked anti-israel sentiment and he kept the peace but h could not stay in power. the question is which way is egypt going to go now and do we gain anything by cutting off assistance to egypt which is not by the way, abrogated the treaty with israel. i just mention, iran real quick, iran has plochb what you have seen today, you mention in the opening, what we have seen today is the danger if iran acquired
9:18 pm
nuclear weapons. they tried to asas niartd someone right here in the nation's capitol. this is the compelling challenge we face, my friend. >> sean: i think the war has started. we see that the nuclear scientists in iran went after another coincidentally disappear. but they have been funding proxy wars against our own military and against israel for some time. it seems inevitable and don't see the president stepping up that we need to take these nuclear sites out soon are or later. >> you are exactly right. what about the scenario having iran having a nuclear weapon. we have to draw a line for the iranians that they understand and is credible. i'm curious whether this president, because of leading from behind, is credible. >> sean: senator, appreciate you
9:19 pm
being with us. >> listen i'm going over to egypt and i'll be back. >> sean: we have hostages being held there. i hope you bring them home with you. >> thank you my friend. >> sean: thank you for being with us. the president's contraceptive compromise is not sitting well with religious leaders. plus, outrage over the performance at last night's grammies. should the organizers and singers apologize. that much more straight ahead. ♪ [ male announcer ] the 2012 m-class continually monitors blind spots, scans the road to reveal potential threats, even helps awaken its driver if he begins to doze. so in the blink of an eye it will have performed more active safety measures than most cars will in a lifetime. introducing the all-new 2012 m-class.

>> sean: the obama administration's attempt to silence the controversy over the crest mandate is being met by fierce opposition from religious leaders. on friday, part of accommodation they removed the burden of providing drugs like the morning-after pill but instead they say insurance companies must supply such items to the employees of these faith based organizations. but all of this has many catholics in the america, what is the difference? now groups like priests for life they will challenge this mandate. according to father frank pavo, the accommodation announced by
9:24 pm
president obama changes nothing. coercion remains and therefore our legal challenge remains. joining me is analyze is jay secalo and tamara holder. the accommodation. it's still insists that religious institutions, in other words, the employers, would be required by law mandated by law to produce a product that violates their tourist teachings and convictions. insurance companies are going to give for free. >> of course. they will increase the premium. this isn't accommodation. this is nothing about contraception. what this really is, this the worst part of what our founders feared. this is the government telling a religious institutions, any
9:25 pm
religious ins tuigsdz you have to violate your conscience as a price of existing in the united states. this compromise is nothing more than a shell game. idea insurance companies are going to provide it for free and catholic institutions, hospitals won't have to pay for it is nonsense. they will pay for it through the premium increase. the president has stepped on the first amendment free exercise clause. i think the president intentionally did this. i think he made a calculated decision and backfired. >> sean: i think this was a political calculation from the beginning, not only does it violate with a force religious institutions to violate their own principles and conscience but the free exercise clause. you can't have the government mandating you do something that is strictly hubtd by your religion. it seems like a simple question, you are shaking your head -- if
9:26 pm
you believe in religious liberty you can't support the government mandate regardless of your position on birth control or the morning-after pill? >> no, what you are doing sean, you are mixing religion and women's rights in the workplace. >> sean: no, i'm not. >> are you going to preach to me or can i finance. >> sean: hallelujah, go ahead. >> this is an attack on women. women who work and devoted employees they want protection, they want healthcare protection and want birth control. it may not necessarily be to get pregnant. they could have cysts or problems with their skin, all the health benefits that contraception provides to women. why should the church be in someone bedroom telling them what they can and cannot take. these are women that are working
9:27 pm
for, this is women who are entitled to equal healthcare under the law. healthcare by their employer. >> free exercise clause of the constitution protects religious institutions, that would be like saying, government that pork would be appropriate meat and a requirement. >> that is conservative analysis people will laugh at you. >> i have argued several cases in the supreme court. >> i know you have. >> hold it. sean, this is what the left is doing. they are ignoring the free exercise clause. this is religious liberty case. it has nothing to do with abortion or contraceptives. >> how many women, how many americans agree with healthcare with contraceptives being provided to women?
9:28 pm
50% of catholic americans.... >> sean: wait a second. this is question about, i think the president consciously made this decision. he was given a choice and the choice was religious liberty, first amendment versus contraceptives and appealing to the left. he chose to stomp on religious liberty here. this is what tamara is not getting because in the process of providing what she is saying she wants, jay, you would have to stomp on religious freedom. >> of course. and no one is saying, by the way women don't have access to contraceptives. they have access to those. it's requiring a church whose teachings saying we are opposed to this practice. >> it is not the church. >> excuse me. >> it's employers. it's not the church, not going
9:29 pm
to saying abortion. >> you think a catholic hospital that st. thomas hospital, wait a minute, you think they are checking baptismal certificates? of course not. >> this is about women, employees, this is about -- >> you are arguing with me. >> this is women what they have under their he'll plan. this is about women's healthcare >> no, it wasn't. >>. [ talking over each other ] [ talking over each other ] >> sean: one at a time, jay can, back to you. >> mitt romney has been clear. mitt romney has been clear, he opposes the president's position
9:30 pm
as all the republican candidates and democrats has, as well. why? because it's not a question does the gofltd have the authority do this. the answer to that is no. it's called the free exercise clause. when you start having a government telling a religious inns institution or a church. catholic church controls these catholic hospitals, baptist hospitals as well, the idea that the government is going to mandate a religious organization violate the conscience, that is why the framers drafted the free exercise clause. >> sean: thank you both for being west. we'll continue the next debate in the next segment. rapper nicky shocked the show at grammies. more on this contraceptive mandate issue as we continue tonight on hannity.

9:36 pm
>> this is another example of an assault of catholic church. look at the head of this list, president obama, with the mandate, you shall or else, then you have this chick, nicky, whatever her name is. she is playing to the hollywood crowd. and their anti-catholic beliefs. you know what, we as americans, we have a choice. you don't have to vote for obama for mandate. you don't have to buy her products. she endorses other things. we have that freedom to choose not to buy her music or makeup. >> sean: they started off with a prayer to whitney houston. it's somewhat ironic. >> look, it's easy for people that are performers to be outrageous. this performer her trade is being outrageous. they imitating madonna.
9:37 pm
guess what? hollywood and the grammies and all these folks in the music industry they are equal opportunity offenders. they will mock religion. they will lampoon it. but as they suggest, first amendment protects religion but to criticize what they do. >> i don't support boycotts but it seems to be a double standard. gets the islamic faith. >> hollywood. they train on stereotypes. passion of christ was regarded as anti-semitic. they talk about arabs, jews, blacks. >> it's a huge double standard.
9:38 pm
you won't see music videos with people running around in burqas. >> sean: if we look at conservative women are attacked. i don't see liberal women are attacked. catholics and christians are attacked. we discussed this, african-american conservatives. you any name in the book you can be called. >> we're talking politics and we're talking about art. broad wear play. that is mormon. some people are fired up. some people find it is offensive. >> its huge double standard. with this issue, it's all for publicity. you make the most outrageous statements and do the most outrageous acts. we're talking about it now. it was in the news cycle today. >> sean: what about the accommodation as it relates to the crest mandate. the president and white house said, we're done.
9:39 pm
the issue is over. first of all it's not over because there will be many legal challenges they will have to face. secondly, the idea that the president can determine its over because he declaration when it's no different what the original mandate was seems to me to be something else. >> he means over compromising. >> sean: who pays for the insurance? the religious institution. they are going to say healthcare providers are going to give it. >> from obama's perspective they believe they are standing on legal ground. i heard some of the best legal scholars. >> sean: on legal grounds mandate that a church compromise teachings. >> there was an exemption for churches for one year. >> that is not through. wait a minute. let me finish. >> let me finish so you can
9:40 pm
understand. the exemption is for the religious community. >> sean: but not catholic universities and charities. >> and hospitals that have employees that have faith and no faith. >> the mandate, it's not a done issue because he said so. the issue was still on out there. the fact he went to the levels, obama, the levels he went through to push this through, to force this on the catholic church is absolutely outrageous. that is why more and more americans are complaining about the growth of government that is going on in our country. >> people can complain about the government and i do it, as well. i don't like the government. don't push this argument of freedom of religion too far because people have a right to
9:41 pm
religion but people that work with hospitals don't have to practice your religion. >> catholic church is paying them. the government is mandating they provide something that is contrary to their conscience. >> i keep telling you exemption. with hospitals and universities. >> sean: people who have religious. >> people in their unemployment employment clergy and nuns is forcing them to get contraception. >> sean: last word. >> mandate from president obama, he is wrong with it. >> sean: i bring you back, mr. myers is "backlash."

9:47 pm
regular meetings at the white house. so they become a propaganda machine for nbc. number one, number two, how can they be a tax exempt group if they are corroborating with the white house? >> i take another position on this. i think the reputation of the industry continues to be eroded and hurt, especially among people who are dropping out. the ratings are down on broadcast television. major newspapers are declining in circulation and advertising. credibility is stock and trade. if people can't believe that we are doing our job as journalists questioning both sides, trying to find the truth. >> sean: i declared journalism dead in 2008. they would feed it to the l.a. times, twngs "the washington post". >> that is an allegation. >> sean: they have an enemies

9:49 pm
you are bullheaded and you curse a lot on the air but you are good guy. >> bob: this is coming from you. it makes sense. >> what, pravda? >> writing the scripts for nbc. >> by the way, who do they prey on the weakest. so they go to the place that needs help and that is the other network. >> you talked about the tax exempt status. if you are supposed to be nonprofit and doing this stuff, advocacy, pseudojournalism. that is cause of a lawsuit by somebody. >> that cpac thing, it happens on the right as well as the left. probably more on the right than the left. >> sean: here what i don't like. they have every right to monitor

conservatives. by the way, i am taped of every day on the air. i under the game. the point is they have an operation that is designed to take a word, a sentence a phrase and they want to go in and they want to silence them by attacking their advertisers and getting their voices off the air because they disagree. that more frightening. >> i don't want anybody silenced. >> bob: they asked me what you were like privately. i said sean, best of fun. >> sean: i have the best of stories about you, bob. >> best line i heard from this, good friend liberal, matt on the first amendment. answer to speech you don't like is not less speech but more speech. it's true. >> i'm on an enemies' list i would think you would want to protect me.
9:51 pm
>> i do. >> be careful where you are stepping. i have spent more time fighting with these guys that think i is unfair on their part but right wing has been grossly unfair. >> sean: i don't want to silence the voice. we have to get to the point we're going to silence voices of opposition because we don't agree with them that is problematic. >> i get letters that i be removed from newspapers. >> bob: you should see mine here.
