Karl Rove Likes VP Biden
Sean was joined by Karl Rove to talk about his endorsement of Joe Biden to remain on the ticket. American Crossroads agrees and they released this ad mockingly endorsing Vice President Biden for a place on President Obama’s ticket. “We want to keep him on the ticket,” laughed Rove, “I’m strongly supporting the retention of Biden on the Democratic ticket.” “This is the man sitting a heartbeat away from the presidency,” warned Rove. “Do you think Hillary Clinton will replace Biden,” pressed Hannity? “No,” quickly responded Rove, “All of those in the White House love him and the President is embarrassed but I don’t think anything will change.” “Polls have Romney up by one in Wisconsin,” offered Hannity, “Things are looking up for Romney/Ryan.” “This has been a good week for Team Romney,” agreed Rove, “Things are definitely going their way.” For the latest el ection coverage, be sure to stop by and visit Hannity.com.
Hillary Won’t Run
Ed Klein stopped by the show to share his thoughts on why Hillary Clinton wouldn’t consider serving as the #2 to President Obama. “You have sources that Obama was trying to dump Biden,” began Hannity, “Walk us through that.” “Only a few days ago, Hillary sat down with senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett and said she had no interest in being #2,” explained Klein, “She feels burnt out after four years, but more importantly she feels that if Obama were to win, she’d be put in the position to have to defend his policies.” “Since the Ryan story I think they see the pendulum swinging against them,” added Klein. “My sources say that Hillary Clinton isn’t fond of Barack Obama,” fueled Hannity, “My sources also say that Clinton is shocked at the level of incompetence of the current ticket.” “My sources tell me that the Clintons have had a contentious relationship behind the scenes,” offered Klein, “Not only on foreign policy but domestic policy as well.” Perhaps Hillary Clinton is smart to read the writing on the wall for November and politely take a pass, only time will tell.
Good to be the VP
Sean spent much of Friday venting about the double standard that exists in the media. “Why is it that Biden’s good friend can get $20 million dollars in this economy,” asked Hannity, “If you’re out of work and you hear all this money being wasted, what are you thinking?” Hannity continued, “What do other countries think of this, they must think we’re just a bunch of idiots.” The details of this story are still coming out but it appears, as the Daily Caller reported today, that a close friend of Vice President Joe Biden was given $20 million to open a luxury car dealership in the Ukraine. The idea behind the program is that the money would be used to stimulate the local economy of the host country. Sean brought up the amazingly common sense filled question, why aren’t we focused on our own spending habits? This is yet another confusing plank in the Obama Administration’s economic platform and one that leaves everyone scratching their heads.
