Is the Obama Administration The Worst?
Sean kicked off the show talking about the Obama administration’s performance thus far. "I think America collectively gave Obama a pass that no president has ever been given,” a fired up Hannity said on Tuesday, “This has led to the greatest failure of any president in my lifetime and that includes Jimmy Carter.” President Obama has done nothing on the world stage except apologize for America, nothing to create jobs and has generated the largest deficits in American history. “This is why its so crucial that the new Congress comes in and does things right,” noted Hannity, “And anyone who gets off track we’ll let you know who they are.”
Senator Jim DeMint: RINO Republicans
Senator Jim DeMint stopped by the show to discuss the shenanigans that occurred at the end of 2010. “Senator, you’re tired of RINO Republicans but what is it about some of your fellow Republicans that didn’t see the wisdom of holding the line and waiting for the new Congress,” questioned an obviously frustrated Hannity. “We were the most unpopular Congress in history,” noted DeMint, “We know Americans didn’t want any more legislation and I was disappointed but we’re starting over again tomorrow.” Senator DeMint’s attitude is really the right one to have at this point. Today was the last day of that awful Congress and America is hopeful and expecting great things from its new Congress. The country can’t afford to be let down again.
Weiner vs. Hannity
New York Congressman Anthony Weiner stopped by the show to debate Sean on the upcoming session. “You were on TV making the case that Republicans drove the government into a shutdown,” began Hannity, “You were talking about the debt ceiling and what you’re saying is that’s irresponsible.” Weiner fired back saying, “The Republicans want to be in charge now so they’re saying they want to refuse to pay the debts and obligations of this country.” Congressman Weiner seems to have missed the boat here. It’s because we can’t afford to pay our debts and obligations that we need to curb spending and create a debt ceiling. It’s that lesson that his colleagues needed to learn which put him in the minority party once again. Hopefully, the Republicans have learned their lesson and Washington can get back to sensible spending limits.
