    After several years of bumbling around with the Iraq War and Hannity RUSHING to the aide of Bush's strategy in Iraq, he DARES criticize not only Obama, but General David Petraeus (who hannity has applauded on several occassions) who's the commander of all Middle East US forces. Then he bring up some irrelevant idiot in the House who doesn't want to send more troops into Afghanistan?

    This is not the Sean Hannity I listened to for years. This is vile, disgusting hate speech that has no foundation whatsoever. And if true, that Hannity is a mouthpiece for the Republican Party... well, I feel sorry for them. I'm not even concerned for 2012, 2016 or 2020 when Obama wins his 4th term, I'm concerned that there won't be any oppoisition left to the Democratic Party. Nobody agrees 100% with what the Democrats are doing - and there needs to be a legitimate opposition in our government to counter some of the ideas that the Democrats have. The way the Republicans are acting, they're embarrassing themselves. This is not how Reagan would have acted. This is not how Gingrich is acting.

    This is disgusting, vile hate speech and Fox should be ashamed for having Hannity on the air.

    Mind you, this is the same guy who's rooting for another terrorist attack in the US so people will turn against Obama and vote for Republicans again. He's a sick, sick fuck.

    I haven't perceived a change in the nature of the partisanship of the Murdoch mouthpieces like Hannity.

    But I agree there has been a notch up in the desparation level.

    They have a Dem in power that is threatening to increase tax on the wealthy. The number one sin against them. They are increasingly desparate and pulling out all stops to see him fail, even if it brings the country down too.

    Did you miss it? It's right here, where David put it:

    Hate speech, the PC term for 'criticism'. :lol:

    Once again, I see some flawed and partisan thinking, but hate speech? Nah.

    Where's the hate speech, David?

    It's just run of the mill partisan douchebaggery from Hannity.

    Personally, I'd like Sean Hannity to tell us when it became okay to question the president's strategy or lack thereof during a time of war.

    My guess: Jan 20, 2009

    Hannity's argument completely escapes logic. Do you really think General David Petraeus or Secretary of Defense Gates would send tens of thousands of soldiers into war with "no plan?" It's absolutely disgusting because if I was the father of one of those soldiers going into war, watching Hannity, I would shit my pants if I thought Hannity knew what he was talking about. That kind of speech is not only dangerous, it's disgusting and venemous. I call it hate speech because he absolutely hates Obama and anything he does - even if it's good for the country or our wars.
