Sean Hannity Thinks Sen. Ensign Sould Resign, Maybe

On Monday’s show, Sean Hannity brought up a poll showing Sen. John Ensign (R-NV), who admitted to having an affair with a married staffer, having a higher approval rating than Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). Ensign is well known for calling others out on family values issues (Bill Clinton, Larry Craig, etc.). Here’s Hannity being a little wishy-washy on the subject of Ensign’s resignation.

BECKEL: You go to this thing with John Ensign, right, about Harry Reid. He’s more popular than — now, this is a guy — you’re a big family values guy. Here’s a guy that cheats on his wife, not just with somebody, but somebody on his staff who’s married. Now what do you think? Are you defending John Ensign?

HANNITY: That sounds like a liberal Democrat to me.

BECKEL: That was good.

DENNIS PRAGER, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: Wait, wait, wait. What does have it to do with…

BECKEL: Excuse me. Excuse me for a second, Mr. University Prager. I want — I want him to answer this question.

HANNITY: My answer is, if you’re going to be a family-values candidate and a family-values politician, and you don’t live up to that, I think you should resign.

BECKEL: Well…

HANNITY: I don’t know where he stands.

BECKEL: Oh, he’s big.

HANNITY: But with that said, it is interesting that Harry, you know, Prince Pelosi, Prince Harry and Princess Pelosi. His ratings are lower than the guy that had an affair.

BECKEL: All I’m saying is let the record show that that you called for John Ensign to resign.

HANNITY: I don’t know where he stands on the issues.

Sean Hannity Lies About Clinton Op-Ed

Before George W. Bush took office, according to Sean Hannity, Bill Clinton wrote an Op-Ed criticizing the then incoming president. Unfortunately for Hannity, that’s rubbish. Clinton did write an Op-Ed on January 14th, but the only time he mentioned Bush was to suggest a nonpartisan commission on electoral reform.

In the Op-Ed, Clinton wrote about racial profiling, federal sentencing policies, voting rights, electoral reform and proposed Election Day as a national holiday. Where exactly is the negativity toward Bush? Apparently, just in Hannity’s imagination.

HANNITY: I went back — Bill Clinton, before George Bush ever became president, had an op-ed in January 15th, before George Bush was sworn in, criticizing George Bush. You know, for all this talk, “Oh, George Bush needs to be quiet” — now he defended enhanced interrogations. He said it was lawful. He did it to protect this country. He said he wasn’t going to sell out this country for short-term political gain. That –

Fox News Hypocrisy About White House Access

Do you recall someone named Bret Baier, who worked for a cable news channel called Fox News and had “unprecedented access” to the Bush White House in 2008? Apparently, Fox News doesn’t. Nor do they seem to remember that Baier also went aboard Air Force One and visited Bush’s ranch in Texas.

Conveniently, Sean Hannity doesn’t recall any of that when he and Karl Rove complained about ABC being granted access for the upcoming special, “Questions for the President: Prescription for America.”

HANNITY: Karl, it seems rather unprecedented. You were there in the White House for the better part of eight years. Did this ever happened while George W. Bush was president?

ROVE: You know, look, it’s normal for the networks to want to come in and do an interview inside the White House or to get a glimpse behind the curtain as to what goes on there. This is an unprecedented access to the White House and more importantly an unprecedented use of the White House. I can’t remember a time when the network came in and was going to devote a significant block of time to covering an issue that was on the president’s agenda.

Megyn Kelly Blames Sean Hannity for Fox News Bias

There is ample evidence to prove otherwise, but Fox News’ Megyn Kelly told Haute Living that the reason people think Fox News is right wing is because of Sean Hannity.

When asked about her employer’s reputation for being conservative, she attributed those perceptions to the network’s primetime host lineup, not its news coverage. “There is no question that Hannity is a conservative,” she says. “But I can tell you from personal experience after having worked with O’Reilly for years now, you never know where he is going to come out on an issue. He definitely leans right when it comes to certain social, traditional value issues, but he’s all over the board on certain other issues. And Greta-nobody knows exactly what her stripes are. I think [the conservative reputation is] really because of Hannity.”

Except for Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, Greta Van Susteren, Mike Huckabee, Neal Cavuto, Fox & Friends, Red Eye and practically everybody else at Fox News, besides maybe Shepard Smith, it’s all Sean Hannity… Riiight…

Sean Hannity Needs Fannie/Freddie History Lesson

Apparently, Sean Hannity has forgotten that George W. Bush was the U.S. President until January of this year. Or, he forgot that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed into a conservatorship under the FHFA in September, 2008. In either case, he made this false statement on June 3 regarding Obama’s involvement:

HANNITY: But I think, fundamentally, there’s a point here that we need to discuss. And that is Barack Obama, if we get to the root cause of — if anyone would have predicted that he was going to accumulate these debt — this debt, these deficits; that he was going to fundamentally take over GM, take over Chrysler, take over the banks, take over Fannie, take over Freddie; and that he’s going to go on an apology tour and then say we’re not a Christian nation, these are fundamental — you know, there’s a fundamental foundation of America that we are altering here.

Think that was just a mistake? Here he was the day before:

HANNITY: So now on the economy, we’ve got the government taking over car companies and nationalizing banks, and they’re taking over Freddie and Fannie. And they’ve got, you know, a $2 trillion deficit this year, quadrupling it, $10 trillion in the future. I guess this is socialism.

Sean Hannity Badly Misquotes President Obama

Read the following transcript of Sean Hannity responding to quotes made by Barack Obama. Any sane person will see how insane Hannity’s thought process must be to come to these conclusions…

OBAMA: If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.

HANNITY: He honors the national day of prayer behind closed doors. Now, on his Middle East apology tour, the President calls the U.S. a “Muslim nation.”

OBAMA: We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, or a Jewish nation, or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens, who are bound by ideals.

HANNITY: The same president who insists the U.S. is not a Christian nation is now calling us a Muslim nation.

It’s absolutely true that the U.S. is one of the largest countries based on Muslim population. It is not true that he said the U.S. is a Muslim-only nation, or that the majority of the U.S. population is Muslim. It’s simply a childish game of semantics…

Sean Hannity Caught Manipulating Video of Obama’s Cairo Speech

Yesterday, Sean Hannity discussed Barack Obama‘s speech in Cairo, stating that the President, “decided to give 9-11 sympathizers a voice on the world stage.” This is the text of the clip Hannity showed:

I am aware that there are still some that would question or even justify the events of 9-11.

This is what Obama said following that quote, that Hannity conveniently left out:

But let us be clear: Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day. The victims were innocent men, women and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody. And yet al Qaeda chose to ruthlessly murder these people, claimed credit for the attack, and even now states their determination to kill on a massive scale. They have affiliates in many countries and are trying to expand their reach. These are not opinions to be debated; these are facts to be dealt with.

Here’s the transcript from Hannity’s show:

HANNITY: He went on to imply to the foreign audience in Cairo that the U.S. is a nation that tortures.

OBAMA: I have unequivocally prohibited the use of torture by the United States, and I have ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed by early next year.

HANNITY: He also decided to give 9-11 sympathizers a voice on the world stage.

OBAMA: I am aware that there are still some that would question or even justify the events of 9-11.

HANNITY: And throughout the speech, Mr. Obama spoke out of both sides of his mouth. He said on Iraq that he’s glad that Saddam is gone, but then he added this caveat. Listen to this.

OBAMA: Iraq was a war of choice.

Church Shooter Read O’Reilly, Hannity & Savage

Thankfully, the attack on a Knoxville church by Jim David Adkisson is a rare case, but it does provide an example of the mentality of extremist fans of Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage. Adkisson, apparently, left a four page letter that outlines his frustration and hatred of so-called liberals “who are ruining the country.”

Inside the shooter’s house, police officers found “Liberalism is a Mental Disease” by Michael Savage, “Let Freedom Ring” by Sean Hannity, and “The O’Reilly Factor,” by Bill O’Reilly.

Sean Hannity Still Insists Waterboarding Is Not Torture

A month after Sean Hannity said he would be waterboarded to show his support for our troops, Erich “Mancow” Muller took up the challenge. Mancow called it off after six seconds and stated, emphatically, that waterboarding is “absolutely torture.” He made an appearance on Countown with Keith Olbermann and said that it’s worse than drowning and that he would have said anything to make it stop, thus proving that it’s an unreliable method of obtaining accurate information.

After the initial offer to be waterboarded, after Mancow “manned up” and took the challenge, and after Mancow declared that it is, in fact, torture, Sean Hannity still insists that it’s not. He called Mancow and told him, “It’s still not torture.” Mancow replied, “Sean, it is torture.”

Mancow also praised Olbermann and called him a “stand up guy” for donating $10,000 to the Veterans of Valor.

Bill Maher Calls Sean Hannity “Sexually Repressed”

Obviously, Bill Maher is not a popular guy around the Fox News studios, and Sean Hannity recently stated that he thinks Maher had become an “angry, bitter guy.” Maher, known for not pulling punches, responded by saying Hannity was “projecting,” that “he’s a repressed, typical Republican” and that he’s “terribly sexually repressed.”

“No, he’s an angry, bitter guy. That’s called projecting.

That’s called taking what you feel and giving it to somebody else. I’m a happy, single guy. He’s a repressed, typical Republican.

I’m sure just terribly sexually repressed and it comes out in all their sorts of hatred and vile and bile — why would I be bitter? First of all, our side won. You know, their side is in a wilderness like there’s been before.”

Keith Olbermann Donates $10k to Charity in Mancow’s Name, not Sean Hannity’s

It made big news yesterday when Erich “Mancow” Muller was waterboarded live on his radio show. It happened to be on the one month anniversary of Sean Hannity‘s offer to do the same to support the troops. Of course, Hannity has not followed through on his word. Keith Olbermann, showing what charity and support looks like, withdrew his offer to donate $1,000 per second to charity in Sean Hannity’s name, calling him “unnecessary.” Instead he decided to give $10,000 to charity in Mancow’s name, even though Mancow only lasted around six seconds.

Jesse Ventura Makes $1,000 Waterboarding Bet to Sean Hannity

Former Governor, Navy SEAL and professional wrestler, Jesse Ventura, has been making the rounds recently promoting his new book. He’s been on The View, The Howard Stern Show, Sean Hannity’s show, Fox & Friends, etc. He also sat down with The Huffington Post for an interview in which he offered a $1,000 bet that if he were to waterboard Sean Hannity, he’d get Hannity to say that Barack Obama is the greatest president.

“I’ll bet [Hannity] a thousand bucks that I can get him to say ‘Barack Obama is the greatest president’ — if I get him to say it, he’ll give the thousand to charity and if I can’t, I’ll give the money to charity.”

Ventura also mentioned that he wants to go on The O’Reilly Factor, but Bill O’Reilly doesn’t have the courage to have him as a guest.

Ann Coulter Terrorist Expert? Right…

Sean Hannity had former “economic expert” turned “terrorist expert,” Ann Coulter on his show yesterday. She’s also known for twice being a suspect in voter fraud. Wait, back up… expert? The only thing she’s an expert on is hate…

So, Hannity and Coulter got to talking about Guantanamo and she made this, totally unchallenged (by Hannity) statement:

“I think it’s preposterous. And (Democrats) certainly have no evidence for it. It just gets said over and over and over again: ‘It’s a recruiting tool for terrorists. It’s a recruiting tool for terrorists.’ I don’t think so. I don’t think most terrorists are going to want to end up in Guantánamo, lovely though the accommodations are.”

Unfortunately for Ann Coulter, not that she cares, real experts disagree. Military and FBI interrogators have said that the detention facility has been used as a recruiting device and at least two reports support that position. Sen. John McCain also agrees.

One Month Since Sean Hannity Waterboard Offer

On April 22, 2009, Sean Hannity offered to be waterboarded for our troops. It’s been one month since he made this pledge, thinking that waterboarding is not torture, and he has not followed up it.

Another on-air personality, Erich “Mancow” Muller, thought the same. Until now. He left it up to his listeners who voted that he should be subjected to a waterboarding session, live on his show. He lasted six to seven seconds and now says that it is “absolutely torture.”

Where are you at Hannity?

Jesse Ventura Takes on Sean Hannity

While former Governor Jesse “The Body” Ventura was on Sean Hannity’s show yesterday, the questions by Hannity followed an all-to-familiar path. Unfortunately for Hannity, his guest is pretty sharp and isn’t afraid to speak his mind.

Hannity has the nerve to state that the world is better off after Bush’s presidency. Ventura has a different opinion on that matter…

Ventura: You’re telling me that the United States was better off after George Bush or before him?

Hannity: After.

Ventura: Oh, my God. How can you make that statement?

Hannity: I just did..and I’ll tell you why…

Ventura: It’s ridiculous…This country was far better off (No.) before George Bush then it is after George Bush.

Ventura responded to Hannity’s weak argument about President George W. Bush inheriting problems from President Bill Clinton, including terrorist incidents. This exchange is great!

Hannity: There were a group of radicals that were at war with the United States and we weren’t at war with them. We saw the first Trade Center bombing, the Embassy bombings, the USS Cole, and we think radicals that think God is going to reward them in Heaven with virgins. Jesse, how do you stop them.

Ventura: You pay attention to memos on August sixth that tell you exactly what Bin Laden is going to do. Instead we hear Condoleezza Rice going, “I didn’t know what they were going to do.” And the memos says Bin Laden set to hijack planes and ram them into buildings and your buddy George Bush, he was on vacation in Crawford at the time. Do you know he took over 900 days off for vacation?

Hannity: The President’s never off….Do you know that, Let me give you an example…

Ventura: This one was on his watch because the biggest attack happened on his watch.

For Sean Hannity, a renown bully, it was a mistake to have an even bigger bully, like Jesse Ventura, as a guest.
