Who Won The GOP Primary Debate?
Sean spent some time covering last night’s GOP Presidential primary debate. “What last night’s debate showed me was that there are seven accomplished and diverse candidates who are all capable of putting together a powerful attack on Obama’s perfectly awful presidential record,” began Sean, “None of the candidates made any egregious errors.” Sean continued his thoughts saying, “Whoever emerges from this long, and expensive process will be in political fighting shape.” For more on the coverage of last night’s debate, visit Hannity.com.
Michele Bachmann’s Decision
Sean was joined by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann who announced her candidacy for President this week. “There wasn’t one person up there who wasn’t saying we need to cut taxes, become energy independent and have a stronger national defense,” acknowledged Hannity, “What are you looking for?” Bachmann laughingly replied, “I agree we have a very good group of people and there’s one candidate who I could recommend for you.” Congresswoman Bachmann continued, “The country is in a very difficult situation and we need someone who has not only the knowledge, but also the political will to get the job done.” For more on Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, check out her page on Hannity.com.
Dick Morris: This Is Just A Tennis Draw
Dick Morris joined Sean to offer his thoughts on last night’s debate. “I always think of the tennis metaphor,” offered Morris, “Last night was really the quarterfinals and the winners get to go into the semi-finals.” Hannity and Morris broke down the performances of each candidate before Sean asked, “I interviewed Trump this morning and we got into some detail about his potential third party candidacy and I said ‘if you do that you’re going to elect Barack Obama.” Morris agreed saying, “I’ve told him that if he runs as an independent I’ll personally strangle you.” To hear Sean break down every candidate throughout the entire campaign season, become a Hannity Insider today!
