        Sean Hannity, Ratings? You have to admit the guy has spunk.
        Bush & Golf? i thought i was viewing an episode of Punked.
        The Deer in the Headlights look on the two women was kinda attractive.
        Almost made me wish Hannity's show was Virtual Reality Interactive.


        Speak truth to power.


        Mr. News

      These two women looked stunned when Hannity said that. They knew he was wrong

        "Now watch this drive."


        That will always be known as one of Bush's most classic lines, along with many others, of course.

          My personal favorite was, "I'm the master of low expectations."

          Probably the most honest statement he ever made . . .

      So this is the present state of "family values" conservatism, according to these three: it's a horror for the President to advise people who are dealing with a reeling economy "don't go gambling your money away." Wow.

      Is this what they mean by "patent lying"? Bush was far out of touch and was also golfing or cutting tumbleweeds in Texas all the damn time. I have no reason to adore Obama because he really hasn't done much since getting into office; however, Bush was the biggest disaster the White House had stay in it. Yes, even worse than Nixon. My kids and their kids will be paying for Bush's f-ups. Obama hasn't hurt anything yet, he just hasn't done anything. Big difference.

        Bush never cut a tumbleweed in his life EXCEPT for the cameras. Bush is a city boy who is terrified of livestock [didn't own any on that "ranch"].

        He was on vacation for one-third of his presidency.

      No bush didn't play golf...all he did was eat cake and strum a guitar while the people of New Orleans drowned. And he took those wonderful bicyle trips where he ran into anything and everything in his way....another of those "bring it on" moments he was fond of.

      There Hannity goes with that "teleprompter" BS again. Sean, the President wiped the floor with the publikun Congress people last week without a teleprompter. Bush did in fact play golf while this country was at war until around October 2003.

        Hannity couldn't do a program without his teleprompter. Most of his "interviews" just involve the same 5 or 6 talking points that he repeats over and over and over again over the interviewee.

      Tomorrow's WPITW, for sure... he deserves that honor for such a ridiculous statement. And, at this point, I thought Hannity stopped being Bush's patsy. Oh, how things never change.

      Look at the 3 sitting around their "fairly unbalanced" panel, spouting and repeating the same senseless misinformation time and again.

      quadrupled the deficit

      The deficit was already a projected 1.3 trillion even before Obama took office.

      Bush... did not play golf while this country was at war.

      Some evidence says otherwise. However, he rarely played so I'll give them that much.

      He's not doing the right things to get our economy growing again. We were thriving, we were cutting taxes, if the small businesses were hiring it wouldn't be as bad

      Let's see Obama has cut taxes through the stimulus and plans to offer tax incentives to small businesses who hire. At what point was the economy thriving under G. Bush? After he blew the surplus at the beginning of his administration or near the end when the recession started?

      Bush played golf until October 2003. He didn't quit because we were "at war," he quit because doctors advised him that golf was bad for his knees. He was having symptoms of a torn meniscus. Sean must have missed it in the "news."
