Winning The First Battle In A Political War
A giddy, but mostly sleep deprived Sean Hannity took the national airwaves and talked about last night’s historic events. “Yesterday was about you. The results are about you. This has always been about the kind of country we want to live in. You made this victory possible. All of you that when out and voted, rallied, participated in town halls, campaign events – you made history happen. Yesterday was about pulling the country back from the edge of disaster and you did it!” Sean did offer words of caution however. “This is not the end of our political battles; it is the first battle in a political war for the heart and soul of this nation – that begins today.” For a complete recap of yesterday's elections, plus articles Sean mentioned on today's show, visit Hannity.com's Election Headquarters HERE.
Obama’s Pointless Goodwill Tour Through India
The Anointed One, Barack Obama, has scheduled a trip to India and Indonesia that will cost the American taxpayer about two billion dollars. No, that’s not a typo – two BILLION dollars. “This trip amounts to a pointless goodwill tour,” Sean steamed. “At a time when we’re going to have a big battle in the U.S. Congress in a lame duck session over whether or not they should extend the Bush tax cuts for every American.” What would be the largest tax increase in American history will take place on January 1st if Congress doesn’t extend the tax cuts. “I know you maybe a little tired from yesterday, but that battle is going to begin soon. There is no earthly reason that Obama needs to go on this trip other than the fact he wants to get out of town and be worshiped again in the wake of costing his party these massive losses. He could fly all the people he intends to meet into Washington for a fraction of the cost!” Sean exclaimed.
Watts: Republicans On A Short Leash
Former Congressman J.C. Watts joined the final hour of Wednesday’s program and shared his thoughts on last night’s election. “Last night American’s weren’t rewarding Republicans so much as they were punishing Democrats,” said Watts. “Republicans are going to be on a very short leash and people are going to want to see results.” Sean disagreed with Watts’ assessment and explained he felt voters rejected Obama’s reckless spending, his advancement of big government programs and his policies. “Last night was a referendum Obama and his policies and of a corrupt Democratic machine," Sean added.
