Hannity Attacks Clintons To Defend Rove

Reported by Deborah - October 21, 2005

It was inevitable that Hannity would find a way to bring the Clintons into the Rove legal scenario. He couldn't find a way to blame them directly but he tried to make the Clinton's legal problems worse than Rove's while suggesting that they were given legal breaks. 10/21/05

Hannity was urging and at times pleading with his radio audience to fight back suggesting that Karl Rove is getting a raw deal. Simplifying Rove's legal situation, Hannity concluded that he was in trouble because he couldn't remember specific conversations. Hannity asked his listeners if they could remember stuff that happened two years ago trying to get them to see Rove as a victim.

Then he came up with his Clinton comparison claiming that Hillary Clinton said that she didn't recall something 200 times during her Whitewater testimony and Bill Clinton used the excuse 265 times in one questioning. Hannity's tone and rhetoric carefully but clearly implied that the Clintons are the real criminals but they weren't forced to answer any questions like Rove.

comment: Hannity just can't believe that his great empire may be crumbling. He was the White House main man during the last campaign getting the exclusive interviews with Bush and Cheney. After the debates, Karen Hughes chose Hannity for the first spin session and the Swiftboat Vets had free reign on H&C. Why even Karl Rove gave him a phone interview when Bush was kicking off the Social Security campaign. Is Hannity's heady time about to end? No wonder he wants to fight back.
