Laura Ingraham hosted Raymond Arroyo of EWTN's "The World Over" with "Art and Soul".
Arroyo and Ingraham commented on the White House being used as a set for "The Biggest Loser" to promote Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" efforts. This is the tip of the iceberg of the continuing appearances by the Obamas on every imaginable media program, including online ads on Facebook, YouTube and Google. They also commented on the continual travel of the Obamas to targeted swing states and other venues such as Mount Rushmore for their enjoyment and image airbrushing. They contrasted this misuse of public dollars with the outcry over Mitt Romney's wealth. Both commented on how the media gives fawning coverage to the Obamas as Every Man and Woman as they live like top drawer elites.
Coulter said the GOP shouldn't look for a novelty VP candidate. She thinks it will be Senator Marco Rubio, but she would prefer is Governor Chris Christie.
Coulter said Mitt Romneyis the best candidate now becuase he will cut government, something Reagan wasn't good at.

The "Ingraham Angle" with Laura Ingraham on "The O'Reilly Factor" focused on the health care law at the Supreme Court and the Trayvon Martin case.
Ingraham commented on the Trayvon Martin case, saying that we don't know yet if this case is a comment on race relations in America.
Ingraham spoke about the oral arguments from the Supreme Court on the Affordable Care Act. She said there is a conference today in which a preliminary vote will be taken on where the justices stand on the issue. The assignment of who will write the majority and minority opinions will be made and the final opinion will be issued in late June. This all will be kept secret until that time.
President Obama spoke about getting rid of oil companies subsidies due to their high profits and decried those who object to investments in alternate fuel sources. This appears to be in response to the failed investments in such companies as Solyndra which involved Obama supporters and cost taxpayers half a billion in subsidies.
Carter said he is the first graduate of the Naval Academy to have been a governor and also a president. He said there is nothing wrong with religious people serving in government but that there should be a separation of church and state. He said there was a much more harmonious relationship in Washington which has changed since he left and blames it on too much money in politics. He pointed to the Citizens United decision that has fueld this all.
Ingraham said that while President Carter speaks of kindness to all, he criticized President Bush's policies - such as the war in Iraq.
Carter and Ingraham expressed concern about Christian persecution in the Middle East.

Carvin said the Solicitor General appeared to have no arguments to defend the personal mandate and other issues with the health care law. He said he stays polite regardless of how inane it gets as one needs to be attentive. He said severability is one of the most important parts of the health care case because it could mean the whole law could be cancelled. He said he had two days to moot court this case.
Carvin said it is essential to get conservative justices on the court where the constitution and the rule of law holds true. Ingraham lamented that there haven't been questions about this during the campaign debates.
We announced our self-driving car project in 2010 to make driving safer, more enjoyable, and more efficient. Having safely completed over 200,000 miles of computer-led driving, we wanted to share one of our favorite moments. Here's Steve, who joined us for a special drive on a carefully programmed route to experience being behind the wheel in a whole new way. We organized this test as a technical experiment, but we think it's also a promising look at what autonomous technology may one day deliver if rigorous technology and safety standards can be met.
Steve Mahan who is almost totally blind "drives" Google's new self-driving car.
Russia's Pravda News headlines an editorial entitled Pravda on Mitt Romney: 'Out-Of-Touch, Out-Of-Touch, Unelectable. Obviously after President Obama's open mic gaffe, the Kremlin is campaigning for President Obama, giving him a big boost.
This can only help Romney with the GOP base.
Below is the opening of the editorial which slams not only Romney but all the low lights of American foreign policy through the Kremlin's lens.
Electing Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States of America would be like appointing a serial paedophile as a kindergarten teacher, a rapist as a janitor at a girls' dormitory or a psychopath with a fixation on knives as a kitchen hand. His comments on Russia are a puerile attempt at making the grand stage and boy, did he blow it...
Krikorian said that there are thousands of cases where illegal criminals serve their sentences and their countries of citizenship won't take them back. The State Department won't do anything and they can only be held indState efinitely. He said visas should be stopped for the offending countries. Ingraham said the State Department is the dumping ground for incompetence. Krikorian said the Obama administration is terrible on these cases while the Bush administration was poor until it started the "Safe Communities" program. Ingraham pointed out that President Obama's uncle who has been ordered to be deported and who was picked up on DUI charges has never left the country.
Bryant said that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are going back to the old days of using the Trayvon Martin shooting for their own purposes. He said it is their game plan to cause chaos. He said when he was head of the NAACP in Texas, things were moving in this direction. He said it's not about Trayvon, but about pimping his parents for their aggrandizement. He said if this turns out like the Duke lacrosse case, Jackson and Sharpton will slink away and leave the pieces behind.
Cuccinelli said Justice Kennedy wa dubious from the jump about the Solicitor General's points during the second day of arguemtns on the Affordable Care Act. Ingraham said Justice Kagan appeared to step in for AG Donald Verrilli and Cuccinelli said he had a very difficult case to make.
Cuccinelli said that he is fearful of Mitt Romney making the case against Obamacare if he is the nominee. He doesn't question his integrity but what Romney might replace it with. He said given the nomination process he's not concerned about polls at this point.
