If ever you needed proof that Republican partisanship trumps truth and integrity on Fox, witness the return of the discredited Dick Morris as a legitimate pundit on Hannity last night.
You may recall that Morris’s contract with Fox was not renewed last winter in the wake of his wildly off-the-mark predictions that Mitt Romney would win the presidency in a landslide. It was a prediction that Morris had “explained” by saying he was trying to help Romney’s floundering campaign. You may also recall that Joe Muto, aka the Fox News Mole, told Huffington Post that Fox News knows Morris is full of baloney.
Nevertheless, Morris returned to the Hannity show last night where he was once again disingenuously introduced as “former Clinton advisor." This time, Sean Hannity noted that Morris is also the host of a radio show.
Instead of owning up to his mistakes last night, Morris pretended he was wrong, along with Gallup, Rasmussen, CNN and about two-third of the pollsters. Which is not quite true. While many polls did overestimate Romney’s performance, none predicted the kind of Romney blowout Morris did. Morris also laughably pretended his mistakes were only because voters broke for Obama after Hurricane Sandy and the polls didn’t reflect that.
Not that Hannity challenged any of Morris’ excuses. He changed the subject to the Affordable Care Act. And guess what? Morris has some new predictions! Morris said this about the upcoming 2014 elections:
It’ll be a total wipeout. The Republicans will gain enormously. …If Obama rescinds the (health insurance) cancellations, which he could do by executive order …then nobody’s gonna sign up for this turkey and he’ll be embarrassed by the low turnout.
…The only way (Obama) can generate enrollments is to throw people off their health insurance and then they have no alternative but to come into the exchanges.
Dems, this is good news. If Morris says Republicans will win in a “total wipeout,” you can probably look forward to some solid gains in 2014. And there are probably good days ahead for the Affordable Care Act, too.
However, Morris was right about one thing that I previously doubted: He predicted in March he'd be back on Fox News.
" Kind of like DISCREDITED LIAR Brian Williams still on an affiliate of NBC=MsNBC" So Back at you,
"""If ever you needed proof that Democratic Partisanship Trumps TRUTH & INTEGRITY on NBC, Witness the RETURN of the DISCREDITED LIAR Brian Williams as a legitimate pundit on Today with Matt Lauer.""" OWNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hannocchio’s welcome mat to Little Dick may be short-lived if he continues to take over Hannocchio’s afternoon drive at other radio stations.
NOTE TO OLD MAN HANNITY
That little man you adore may be sitting in your seat when your contract’s up at Fox. He would be cheaper on the News Corporation payroll.
most of the conservative blatherers are stunningly insensitive to the needs of soldiers and vets, while using them as props in their efforts to paint themselves as the only true patriots.
it is truly sickening.
Did Slanthead also note that his fat little toadstool buddy Morris’ radio show bumped Slanthead out of afternoon drive time on the Philly station?
Did Morris make any predictions on what time slot they’ll give to Slanthead come Jan 1 when he moves from WABC to WOR here in NYC?
BTW, I’m trying to make this a full week completely free of listening to even a few seconds of Hannity on the radio.
And for that matter, also trying to ignore the ranting on so-called “progressive” radio. With Ed Schultz, that’s easy because he’s seldom on air live there these days.
