Hannity Gives Bobby Jindal's Career A Boost

Reported by Ellen - November 19, 2010 -

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal is saying he's not running for president in 2012 but he certainly acted last night (11/18/10) as though he were on Hannity and, maybe more importantly, Sean Hannity acted that way too as he not only promoted Jindal's book, "Leadership and Crisis," but honed in on Jindal's attacks on Obama as well as Jindal's supposed leadership capabilities.

A few excerpts from the interview:

Hannity: Governor Jindal is holding nothing back when it comes to placing blame in President Obama's lap.

Jindal: Sean, it's a pattern. This administration has been disconnected from the facts on the ground... The country wants them to create the conditions for good-paying, private sector jobs. Instead, they're expanding Obamacare, taking over car companies, raising our taxes, borrowing more money.

Jindal: As I say in the book... don't worry about politics. Worry about getting the job done, it will take care of itself.

Hannity: You have great chapters in this book about immigration and spending and how America's moving in a socialist direction and corruption. One of the things that I think separates your governing philosophy from that of the president, I think can be summed up as it relates to the oil spill and you said..."

Hannity: To sum up, how bad do you think this president is?

Media Matters did the math and figured that Fox News has donated the equivalent of about $40 million in airtime to potential GOP candidates. I think the number just got higher.

By the way, when you watch the video, you might want to hold on to your side to keep it from splitting when you hear Hannity say that he wished he had been wrong "for the good of the country" about President Obama's "radical associations."
