Obama's Attack Ads
Sean kicked off Wednesday’s show angry over President Obama’s latest advertisement which is accusing Romney of being complicit in the death of a woman with cancer. “You can’t make this stuff up,” an amazed Hannity offered, “For those of you who think Hannity is being repetitive, ‘Republicans want dirty air and water,’ but I knew this was going to happen, the argument in this ad is that Mitt Romney is responsible for the death of a cancer-stricken woman and not only is this insanely over the top but these facts are incredibly distorted.” Sean’s absolutely right. This advertisement is based on false allegations and seems to be an effort to distract Americans from the truth of President Obama’s less than stellar public record.

Trying to Defend Obama
Sean was joined by Kate Obenshain, author of the upcoming book, 'The Divider in Chief', and Jason Childs, Founder of the Center for Progress in Alabama to discuss President Obama’s latest round of attack ads. “Nobody in the Democratic party will condemn the Obama ad,” began Hannity, “Jason Childs, will you condemn it?” “This ad is insulting to liberals and conservatives,” conceded Childs, “These PAC ads are worse than what the campaigns are actually putting out.” “Obama is doing everything he can to make this divisive and nasty,” argued Obenshain, “Yet, Obama has no problem condemning conservatives like Rush Limbaugh.” “The President has said this would be a one term proposition if he didn’t turn this around,” summed Hannity, “The new jobs that are being pulled out of thin air, we have hundreds of thousands fewer Americans working than when he took office, so the bottom line is that he should be a one term president.” “The economy is starting to turn around,” countered Childs, “These are tough economic times and I think this administration has helped.” “You can’t really believe that,” a disappointed Obenshain argued, “ You can’t think that having the highest poverty rate in seventeen years is heading in the right direction.” That’s the bottom line. President Obama can get as nasty as he’d like in this campaign but that won’t change the results of the past four years. Something that Governor Romney should remember.
Jon Lovitz on Taxes
Sean was joined by comedian Jon Lovitz who’s defending his last round of attacks against high taxes. “A lot of people have come up to me and said they pay a lot,” began Lovitz, “I think both parties want to help people but they disagree on how to do that.” “I think we can do better,” offered Hannity, “I think this President has destroyed what was that dream that you and I have once had in our lives.” “Romney has said he’ll fix our economy but how,” issued Lovitz, “I think the two sides really need to talk to each other.” To listen to Sean’s full interview, complete with all of Lovitz’ hilarious commentary, click here.
