President Obama’s “broken promises” was the purported topic of the special on Hannity Friday night (8/3/12) but it wasn’t long before Hannity’s “studio audience” – little more than an accumulation of Fox News hosts and regular guests – used the subject to accuse Obama of deliberately sabotaging businesses in order to wreak his agenda of destroying the country and putting people on welfare.
Stephen Moore: You know I think the bottom line here is, this president, Sean, would want these gentlemen to be on welfare… I don’t think that they think it harms the economy when these gentlemen lose their jobs.
Regular guest Amilya Antonetti – whose main role on Fox seems to be to attack liberals and boast about her business prowess – regardless of her own beliefs – announced:
He’s giving away innovation and he’s giving away inspiration from this country. When you take a look at what’s happening here and when you take a look at the pipeline. What he’s giving away is the opportunity for us to be self-reliant. He’s giving the power of us at the negotiating table globally… Because here is our house. Our house has four walls. He’s systematically dismantling each wall all the way around us. The military is going to be us. And we’re completely vulnerable. And we’re completely exposed and I believe it’s been the strategy all the way. Go around our core things that keep us together as a country, that we’ve built for decades and he’s taking us apart, one system at a time.
Later, Eric Bolling said, “He kow-tows to the environmental lobby… He’s strangling every possible industry that he can with regulation because – he has a plan. He has an agenda.
Antonetti got another chance to reiterate her accusations: He’s dismantling. He’s dismantling systematically.
So how did Hannity react to this hatriotism? By saying, “I see we have a lot of smart, brilliant people here.”
And by piling on. Later in the show, he said, “By (the Obama administration’s) actions, they almost want us to get around in a horse and buggy. Anybody agree?
Michelle Fields, of the Daily Caller, who seems to spend every day, all day on Fox News, said, “They are basically saying, ‘Look, we don’t care that your way of life is threatened,’ because if they did, they would be implementing policies that don’t destroy jobs, that don’t destroy industries and certainly don’t raise the cost of living for the American people.”
Nothing says, “Fox News patriotism” like spewing as much hate toward our president as possible.
Of course, Sean — that’s EXACTLY the reason the Obama Administration bailed out TWO of the three largest automakers in the US . . . so we can get around in “horses and buggies.”
I’m beginning to wonder if Hannity is one of those people who have “left” and “right” printed on the soles of their shoes . . .
