Sean Hannity is ducking Ed Schultz’ challenge to prove that Osama Bin Laden would still be alive if President Obama “had his way.” Although Schultz captured Hannity saying on Fox News that he could prove that on tape, now that he has been challenged, Hannity has decided to play the victim in the hope that nobody will notice he hasn’t come up with any tape. Well, Sean, we noticed and we’re not falling for your victim routine.
On his radio show yesterday, Hannity played the clip of him peviously saying about Bin Laden’s death, “It wouldn’t have happened if (Obama) had his way and I think that can be proven as well - on tape.”
Schultz did a great job of coming up with lots of tape proving otherwise. In the same segment, he challenged Hannity to “show us the tapes proving President Obama didn’t want to kill the Number One terrorist in the world, Osama Bin Laden, responsible for 9/11.”
Instead, Hannity whined on the radio that he was “dealing with nonsense” and with people “trying to throw me off my game.” He reiterated, “I will stand by this point – that if Barack Obama had his way no Gitmo, no rendition, no enhanced interrogation, no Bin Laden. Wouldn’t have happened.” Funny how Hannity didn’t say anything about being able to prove it on tape this time.
Hannity boasted that he gave Obama “a lot of credit” for capturing bin Laden and then went on to provide an analogy about a passive father taking all the credit for a mother’s work convincing an overweight daughter to lose weight - a not-so-subtle suggestion that President Bush is the one who really deserves the credit for Bin Laden’s death, not credit-hogging Obama.
But while he went to the trouble of “standing by his point” and drawing up an analogy to go with it, Hannity never came up with any tape.
Ed Schultz, on the other hand, debunked the claim that we should thank “enhanced interrogations” for Bin Laden’s death with another load of tape.

By the way, don’t forget that waterboarding fan Hannity still hasn’t fulfilled his promise to be waterboarded for charity. Feel free to remind him either via email at Hannity@foxnews.com or via Twitter at @SeanHannity.
(3/11/20 Update: Video is no longer available)
his head would explode and his followers would all wander from one end of the country to the other is a lost and cloudy haze.
This disgrace to his father will never waterboard himself for the troops, and will never produce a tape proving his point. As always, his audience will fall for his lies.
The Stop Hannity Express continues to hit the streets and expose this imposter to the masses in the streets. Many people are unaware of Hannocchio’s dark side and his past. He would lose half his audience if his other side became public knowledge.
NOTE TO HANNITY
Genius, your audience are the real victims.
