What Can We Expect For Rep. Giffords
Sean was joined by Dr. Kevin Mullins, the Chief of Neurosurgery at Good Samaritan Hospital, to discuss the injuries suffered by Representative Gabrielle Giffords this past weekend in Arizona. “Of all the years we’ve been friends,” began Hannity, “It seems like a medical miracle could be in the making.” Dr. Mullins was happy to report, “The preliminary information that she’s able to respond to commands is remarkable considering the injuries that she suffered.” Dr. Giffords continued his thoughts saying, “Some parts of the brain are less important to our daily functioning and I think as time goes by we’re going to get a better idea of her motor function and a better idea of her language function.” There’s no doubt that this tragedy is a real shock to the country and not the way we wanted Congress to start 2011. Our thoughts and prayers continue to remain with Congresswoman Giffords and her family.
Senator Rand Paul: Politicizing Tragedy?
Senator Rand Paul stopped by the show to defend the tea party and conservatives who’re being targeted by liberals as fueling the fire that caused the tragedy that occurred this past weekend where Representative Giffords was shot at a rally in Arizona. “What do you make of all these accusations against the tea party, Fox News and talk radio,” asked Hannity. Paul quickly answered, “We should focus on this tragedy and not trying to politicize this.” Paul added, “It’s not really logical to discuss the motives of someone who appears to be a paranoid schizophrenic, we’re supposed to take his ramblings and believe this is coming out of some political discourse?” Senator Paul is absolutely right. How can the media be so quick to make this a political issue when this tragic shooting is still so fresh in everyone's minds?
Politicizing This Tragedy
“I hear about this killing spree and talking with Mark Levin and the first thing we asked was how long will it take for the media to somehow tie conservatives to this mindless violence,” began Hannity, “There’s something really twisted and sick about this.” Sean’s absolutely right. As we learn the truth about this despicable, violent and disturbed killer, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that this is no one’s fault. We should all do our part to respect the victims and not politicize this tragedy.
