I did something the other day that I have not done for years—I listened to Sean Hannity on the radio for a solid hour. I was at a place where the radio was on and I had time to kill—that is the one and only reason I listened. All it did was remind me why I despise Sean Hannity.
In the mind of Hannity, the eight years of the Bush administration never happened. That is the only way I know how to explain it. Here is a quote from Hannity about Obama: “The guy who is responsible for all this massive debt.” Really Sean? Bush doubled the national debt and gave us the first trillion dollar deficit but it is all Obama’s fault? Now, I despise Obama and his policies as much as I despise Hannity, but why give Bush a free pass? Hannity also said something like: “We need a conservative Senate, we need a conservative in the White House.” Really Sean? Bush and the Republicans had absolute control of the government for over four years and what did we get for it? The TSA, the Medicare Prescription Drug plan, the Patriot Act, the expansion of the police state, and two wars. Let’s hope and pray that we don’t get any more conservatives in the Senate and the White House.
