Sean Hannity Takes Sen. McCain To The Woodshed Over Anti-Tea Party Remarks (Video)
MEDIAITE ^ | 07/27/11 | Frances Martel

Posted on 07/27/2011 7:48:12 PM PDT by Cecilia Trent

Sen. John McCain ruffled America’s already disheveled political feathers today with a Senate floor rant mocking the Tea Party’s position on the debt ceiling debate comparing them to hobbits and disparaging them for turning Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into Republican nominees. Unsurprisingly, Sean Hannity had a bone to pick with the senator tonight on those comments, and on his opinion that the Republicans will get the blame for a debt default if they do not compromise.

Hannity came out swinging at Sen. McCain, wondering why the senator had turned on the Tea Party– “why not attack the President?” Sen. McCain corrected that he did intend to attack the Tea Party but that he disagreed with their obstinacy, especially if it would mean a plan like that of Sen. Harry Reid’s– “one of the most flimsy, transparent, phony spending cut things, proposals, that I’ve ever seen”– being put into law. The alternative to Hannity, however, was Republicans “competing with themselves, which infuriates me a little bit.” He noted that the Rep. Paul Ryan plan in the House was a good start, and that “the House Republicans voted to repeal Obamacare,” all things it frustrated him not to see in the Senate.

Does this make up for all the other times when Hannity kissed Captain Queeg’s ass?

I’ll tell you what; I’ve been very critical of Hannity in the past with his softball treatment of guys like McCain, but Hannity has been on fire lately.

He took it right to McShame tonihgt, and did the same thing on his radio show about 1 1/2 weeks ago. I knew Hannity was winning the argument tonight; whenever that POS McCain says “My Friend...” you just know he’s pi$$ing vinegar.

I haven’t said this much lately, but here goes: Good Job Sean!

“McStain needs to dry up and blow away.”

I’d say he is at the point where all he needs to do is blow away.

Maybe because the Tea Party supported J.D. Hayworth against him in the primary. McCain isn't exactly a forgive and forget type. Too bad Hayworth lost.

I guess old useless is still angry he didn’t get elected. I can’t stand it when he says “my friends” with that fake sincerity he gins up. I have news for you Mr RINO, you have no friends.

I saw the same thing. I think that McAmesty WAS expecting the routine “smoochies” from Sean, but that was NOT what he got! Glad to see this happen. I had stopped watching his show BECAUSE he was kissing butt with RINO’s, but that ship may have sailed.

Too little, too late you old dried up has been. You meant every word you said earlier, realized you put your foot in your mouth up to the knee and instead if being a man and apologizing, you try to tell a LIE. You are the common politician. Lie through your teeth and do what the hell you want. Hope your DemocRat buddies cuddle you well because we want you and every other RINO to get the hell out of the Republican party. We are tired of carrying your dead wood a$$e$ time after time just so you can wee wee on us whenever you want. No more. Resign you useless piece of human debris.

Hannity has been on fire lately

I have to agree. Normally Sean is the good little Republican, but in recent days it has been Sean Hannity who is standing by the Tea Party when many other notable right-side commentators and publications have been chiding it for not going along with Boehner's "deal".

There is a passion in his voice bordering on anger, especially on the radio show. I think he, like many, is worried about America's children and the disaster we are on track to leave in their lap. I've tuned into his show almost every day this week when I'm in the car, and usually I am an "occasional listener".

Greta just played Christine O’Donnell’s response and it was sharp to say the least.

Exactly! The Tea Party wanted nothing to do with the old RINO hack! Nor do the old establishment republicans want ANY citizens muck rucking around their charming sandbox. Trouble is, they are losers and cowards. They can’t even hold their spit together to stay elected more than a couple of years for DECADES!

I find it disgusting that McCain is so vehement against the TEA parties stand,but says little about the statist destructive stand of the DNC.

Good for Sean. I. too, have been disappointed in Sean but this is great.

He was equally strong against Jorge Bush’s idiotic border policy. Sometimes Sean does us proud, so he deserves kudos when he does.

Get back to me when Sean Hannity quits trying to push the flavor of the day RINO for POTUS.

Rudy, Newt, and now Jeb Bush

I wish the camera had been left on him so we could have seen his fake smile turn into white hot anger. You KNOW he was pissed. I’m sure he yanked the mic off and said “I’ll never do this show again!”

“My friends”? I’d love to be in a room with him and say “Who the hell are you talking to?”

Ok Juan, so this isn’t the time to take a stand. You’ve been in Washington for 30 years. Just tell us. When will the right time come?

Wake up you pampered pimpernel. The can has hit the wall.

I missed it. Did Capt. Queeg roll the marbles around in his hand and have that classic Humphrey paranoid look?

“I’ll tell you what; I’ve been very critical of Hannity in the past with his softball treatment of guys like McCain, but Hannity has been on fire lately.”

Couldn’t agree more - Hannity has been at the front line in this battle - he’s had all the key congressman and senators on his show and he’s held their feet to the fire.

Levin has been right there with him as well, and has provided some of the best rallying rants.

The iceing on the cake tonight was Michelle Malkin taking one deep breath and bening mccane over the pickle barrel, and with one massive pelvic thrust verbally sodomize that prick. Good for Michelle

McCain is the reason the budget never gets cut.

When the 1% idea is suggested, McCain states that VA benefits cannot be cut 6% in 6 years.

What he refuses to recognize is that EVERY program needs to be cut.
