Sean Hannity...I'm calling you out brotha!Submitted by principle_first on Thu, 04/12/2012 - 17:52
For 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, you speak to millions of Americans on the radio informing us of what's going on. You confidently proclaim to be America's conservative voice and many conservatives do believe you are what you say you are. For the past 8 months and to this day, I hear you say that you will not publicly endorse any republican candidate. I constantly hear you say that this process of vetting the candidates is good and will only make the republican party stronger.
Being a principled conservative as well, I would have to assume that you yourself - even if you keep this decision a private affair - would never support Mitt Romney's candidacy to become the republican nominee as long as other candidates remain in the race. Especially when there are still candidates in this race who are, without a doubt, more conservative than Romney. However my presumption is hearsay as you refuse to speak publicly of this matter. What I have heard you say repeatedly over the past few months is that whoever the republican nominee may end up being, you will fully support them because you say Obama MUST BE defeated this coming election.
Please correct me if I'm wrong Mr. Hannity but I find something deeply flawed with your logic. You boldly make the statement that you are a voice for conservatives everywhere, standing up to the liberal main-stream media. But with your refusal to endorse a candidate as well as your refusal to publicly examine each republican candidate under a conservative microscope, I am having difficulty determining where your allegiance lies. I would think that a spokesman of conservatism would make it his top priority to examine each candidate and make it known how each candidate stacks up to a conservative checklist. In this regard, you have utterly failed.
Saying that you will support whoever the nominee is because Obama must be defeated makes me believe that you sir, are a loyalist to the republican party rather than a defender of the conservative movement. Actions speak louder than words and while you say you do not support any one candidate, your actions tell me otherwise. There are 3 remaining candidates left in the republican primaries and I hope we can agree that out of those 3, Mitt Romney is by far the least conservative.
I listen to your show everyday on my way home from work and I have noticed over the past few days that you have begun covering stories that mainly regards the general election and makes an assumption Romney will be the nominee. I can not understand why you - being the strong conservative that you are - would even make that assumption. On a professional level, it is not only bad practice by a reporter of your influence but also purposely deceitful. There is also an issue of integrity but I will leave that to be pondered by the American people. Because of this, I have concluded that you are a republican party loyalist who - from this moment on - is a supporter of Mitt Romney even when there are still more conservative alternatives available. You know what they say about people who assume? It makes an ass out of you and me. I don't make assumptions and I will speak from my heart and I will continue to support the candidate who has always been the most conservative, most principled man in the republican party...RON PAUL. Don't be an ass Mr. Hannity.
....come at me bro! :)
