Although Sean Hannity has a fit and other Fox Newsies whine when a Democrat or President Obama blames anything on George W. Bush, apparently that’s no reason to stop blaming Bill Clinton! Tonight, however, Hannity came up with a lulu: blaming Clinton for the A-Rod, Ryan Braun, Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer, Bob Filner and just about every other scandal in the news right now.
In a segment called, “Where have our American heroes gone?” the Hannity show discussed the day’s suspension of Alex Rodriguez and the supposed lack of heroes for kids to look up to. At about the 4:00 minute mark in the video below, Hannity and his pal, Bill “Hussein” Cunningham had the following exchange:
HANNITY: I don’t want to get too political. Didn’t a lot of this change though, Billy Cunningham, with the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky? Didn’t it sort of lower the bar ten notches lower?
CUNNINGHAM: Sean Hannity, we look at the Eisenhower, even Kennedy – despite all the revelations we didn’t know about – but when Clinton turned the Oval Office into the Oral Office, that became a big problem. And now every politician from Anthony’s Weiner to the mayor of San Diego now wants to use Clinton as a role model (thinking) “I can brave this thing out. I can smear my opponents, give my girlfriend some benefits, pay off a few people” and Clinton stayed in office. I think when history is written, 1997 and 1998 will be a watershed moment. When Clinton got away with that, all hell’s broken loose ever since. I blame Hillary and I blame Bill.
Can there be any doubt that Hannity would be blaming Clinton for JFK’s transgressions if he thought he could get away with it?
By the way, Hannity's other guest, Matt Bennett, had a rather distinguished career in the Clinton administration. So the comments of Hannity and Cunningham were not just obnoxious but a gratuitous slap in his face.
No matter which political system they all seem to in the end have the same problems with power and money and the corruption they bring.
It seems to me that rose colored glasses are needed to see it otherwise.
I do not mean to shoot you down. I do see it otherwise though.
Mccarthy to Julius Ceaser…seems to be the same to me. Money trends upwards as the haves and have nots divide grows wider.
People in power commit crimes and face penalties ever so rarely.
Money is given for special treatment. we could find nothing but things like that now and then. Whenever and whatever political system.
Right now over 50% of retiring Senators and congressmen become lobbyist. Others go into fields of industry they were regulating while the regulators who replace them come from those industries.
I cannot imagine anyway people can penetrate the corrupt system. It used to be revolutions or conquest that put a temporary end to those systems but in modern day, that’s not going to happen the same way.
Even if it did it would just replace corruption with corruption as has been the case.
The faith put in democracy seems incredibly naive to me. I also wonder how people can love a country, which essentially means the government when governments like the US are so guilty of mass murder, theft and the like and are even built on those things. But I digress.
I think politics are the same, but I do think people are more unfeeling the ever.
When is love mentioned? Loving one another would solve quite a bit, and yet love is almost a dirty word these days.
I follow the concept of loving my enemies. I cannot see much love for anyone anywhere.
reminds me of a wise man that said and I paraphrase "Everyone loves their families, do not congratulate yourself for that, but strive to love your enemies and you have something.
If I’m not mistaken, he was a Republican … perhaps of the new-old school. Or the old-new school.
@doors17: Great adaptation of Casey at Bat.
He pounds with cruel violence his bat upon the plate.
And now the pitcher holds the ball, and now he lets it go,
And now the air is shattered by the force of Sean’s blow.
Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Foxville — Idiotic Sean has struck out.
Apologies to the late Ernest Thayer and his baseball poem written in 1888, "Casey at the Bat”
Hey Fox, I hear the President is in favor of seasons. When are you going to expose this travesty?!?
eeeesh, what “morans.”
NOBODY DIED WHEN CLINTON AND ELIOT SPITZER LIED!
The GOP and these frauds fear Hillary. They know she could win in 2016. So, they have begun a pre-presidential election campaign to stop her.
The Express encourages all the masses to inform the nation of these tactics through television, radio, and social media.
Hannocchio the RINO is in no position to talk about scandals, given his own past. Speaking of scandals, Hannocchio has stopped doing his Freedom Concert tours. Ever since a conservative blogger outed him we haven’t heard a peep from him. Perhaps we should tie the former News International scandals, Ruthless Rupy and his boy, James to Hannocchio. He is an employee of News Corporation.
Hannocchio has more skeletons in his own closet than a medical school. His scandals would go down in broadcast history.
NOTE TO HANNITY
We are surprised you haven’t tied Rupy and Wendi’s pending divorce on the Clintons. Irish gang-banger “Whitey” Bulger’s troubles can be pinned on the Clintons as well.
Things like Iran-Contra and Ollie North’s “shadow government from the White House Basement” and Watergate and Newt Gingrich’s philandering and the Black Sox Scandal were ALL because of Bill Clinton.
Did they mentioned anything about Mark Foley, Larry Craig, Newt Gingrich, Mark Sanford, Ted Haggard or Jeff Gannon?
