"Hannity Bitch Slapped By Guest"

Finally it happened. Sean Hannity's own faithful guest, Bernard Goldberg, gave him the ulitmate bitch slapped, but I'm not even certain he felt it. Then too he felt it, but his pride wouldn't allow him to concede. Below is the interaction which took place last night on Hannity.

GOLDBERG: Well, first of all, I think it was smart for the President not to say anything while these -- while the hostage was being held. If God forbid something happened to the captain, that would lessen the stature of the President, and if God forbid the President said something provocative and they killed the captain, there would be a lot of critics blaming Barack Obama for that, but there's another issue about this that troubles me, Sean, and it troubles me a lot. You remember when liberals wouldn't give George Bush credit for anything? If he came up with a cure for cancer, they wouldn't have given him credit for that, and, I'm sorry Sean, I see that on the right now. it's like -- I don't want to put Barack Obama on Mount Rushmore for simply being the commander-in-chief, but we have to stop going out of our way to find fault with every single thing he does. Look, I think I've got a little credibility on this issue, I don't like his economic policies, I don't like his tax policies, I wrote that book A Slobbering Love Affair about how the media slobbered all over him, but I'm not going to be like the left was with George Bush and criticize everything he does.

HANNITY: I don't want you to misunderstand, but there's an important point here. I think it was very different. There was an orchestrated effort for them to go out there and take credit for this. And that's according to reports. In other words they wanted the credit. I think you're right. I think he should have stayed silent, but what we've now discovered is according to the Politico he in fact was legally required to sign on to this, there was no great decision here, in other words. So I'm seeing the media praise him or overly praise him for something he legally was told by his team he had to do. So the slobbering love affair continues, in other words.

GOLDBERG: I agree with that, but, Sean, were you shocked when you found out that they were gambling in the back room at Rick's Cafe? Of course the media is going to bend over backwards and see things in the best light for the person that they want to be President. I'm not surprised by that. All I'm saying is -- I'll criticize the media, but what I'm saying is the right has to stop behaving like the left used to behave with George Bush.

HANNITY: But you have to show me where---I guess, by definition, if I'm discovering here that legally he had to do it, and his PR team led by Rambo Emanuel are out there grabbing credit, when the captain is saying "I'm just a byline in this story," wait a minute, there seems to be something wrong, and that whole story isn't being told. He didn't stop it because he couldn't stop it, apparently, Bernie, so where does he get the credit here?

GOLDBERG: He gets -- if you want to use the word, "credit," I'll use that word. He was the commander-in-chief, it happened on his watch, that's the way it goes in the real world of politics. If something bad happened here, and thank God it didn't, but if something bad happened here, I'll guarantee you, I'll tell you who would be leading the crusade against him, you, and you may have been right, if something bad happened, you may have said this is because he's seen as soft and they took advantage of him. You might have been right. But it didn't. Look, Sean, the good guy is alive and well.

HANNITY: I agree.

GOLDBERG: The bad guys are dead. That's all good. It happened on Barack Obama's watch. He gets the credit.

To Whom The Tax Bell Tolls...

The bell is tolling of you to let loose your money and give to Uncle Sam. April 15th is the deadline.

The Government needs that money so that they can bailout more on Wall Street and leave you with nothing.
