Hannity's White House Messenger Service

Reported by Deborah - March 8, 2005

When the White House needs to get a message out, Hannity's trusty Exclusive Interview on H&C is the favorite choice.Hannity's questions are always perfectly phrased and there is never any worry about Colmes asking real questions.Tonight, using another preferred method, Hannity played a radio interview with Dick Cheney from his afternoon show which has the added advantages of easy editing and the addition of effective video clips to enhance the message.Last week viewers got an unexpected message from Karl Rove about Social Security and tonight it was all about the greatness of GW Bush.

Cheney stated that what's happening in the Middle East is equivalent to the Berlin Wall coming down adding that although Americans are paying the ultimate price the world is being transformed by the vision of GW Bush.

Then Hannity asked Cheney if he supported Bill Frist's plan to get rid of the filibuster and Cheney replied,
"I think it's important not to allow Democrats to thwart the constitutional process."Cheney seemed determined to get all the Judges confirmed even if it meant eliminating the filibuster.

The last question from Hannity concerned Dan Rather leaving. Laughing he asked,"Do you have any message for Dan Rather now that he's leaving?"

Comment: This little propaganda moment was pretty hard to swallow.With things coming apart in Iraq, the administration is obviously in panic mode creating this smokescreen of patriotic zeal by painting a victorious portrait of American wisdom and superiority in the Middle East.Of course, Cheney's message about eliminating the filibuster can be translated into a message for Democrats that the voice of opposition will no longer be tolerated within our government.
