Is Hannity's radio show overrated?

Posted on 08/27/2009 7:11:07 PM PDT by Politics4US

I don't enjoy Sean's radio show. It's too predictable, and he plays the nice guy too much. Any thoughts?

Unless he has a good guest on, it’s very boring if you’ve listened to it for any length of time. He just repeats the same thing over and over when he’s on by himself. I don’t think he’s the sharpest knife in the drawer.

It's kind of hard to take a vanity like this too seriously from someone who just signed up a couple months ago.

I do appreciate and respect Sean for bringing the venomous relationship of Jeremiah Wright and that Arab to public light.

Currently, Sean is okay, but I can only take about 30 minutes before his cliches put me to sleep.

Mark is my favorite!

I still sort of like Hannity, but the repetition starts to get to me.

His show will always include: a dozen “literally”s, at least one “not pale pastels but bold colors”, and two “I’m so fat”s

I rarely miss the first 15 minutes, and rarely listen beyond that.

Sean set the tone and "talking points", along with Rush, for everything we already read that morning and the night before:)

I think he lacks the ability to seriously question republicans who may not be true conservatives. He challenged talking points when they come from a leftist yet he does not challenge the republican spouting conservative taling points to find out how deep their convictions are.

I haven’t listened in a while, has he dropped down from 6 “beyond the pale” and 4 “unrepentent terrorist Bill Ayers”? Even when a caller was asking for concert tickets and mentioned nothing about anything?

"It's too predictable, and he plays the nice guy too much" is a critique?

Just remember there may come a time when we would be BEGGING for Sean or Rush!!!! “ Fairness Doctrine”?

I thought it was a riot when Billy Cunningham asked...or insisted that Sean run for President in '12.

And Sean seemed to take it seriously.

Sean has too many RINO’s like stinking McCain and probably Mitt and Newt.

At least Sean is not a slimy anti-borther like very very boring Boortz, Ingraham, Hewitt, Medved, Coulter, O’Reilly and a few others.

The good guys are Rush, Beck, Levin, Miller (he has mentioned the BC), Savage and Malztberg plus a few others who have mentioned the BC.

Very true. I don’t mean to insult him, as I’m sure he’s a good guy and his heart is in the right place. He just does a terrible radio show. He’d probably be good for anyone that hasn’t listened to Rush.

Hannity maybe a bit boring sometimes but he's fighting the good fight and that's what the GOP has been lacking for a long time so they may want to take notes.

Our station just started carrying Mark about 8 months ago. He is now my favorite. I’m not usually in the car much when Rush is on. Sean, he is good for sitting in the car rider line waiting on the kids to get out of school. :)

Sean Hannity is a silly twit IMHO. He just parrots whatever the latest GOP line is, without putting any real thought into it. He seems to be a nice guy, but it seems to me you get more info from his guests, than him. I would love to see him pared up with Ed Schulz as the liberal. Sean would learn a whole bunch, real fast, or Ed would eat his lunch.

parsy, who would like to see a street fight between Castro and Kim Il Jong

Hannity is a small stepping stone in the beginning of the path towards an encompassing socioeconomic and political understanding of American society.

He’s like a flickering neon sign on a dimly lit side street.
You know you’re going to get less than satisfactory service as his patron, but it’s a starting point for some.

I liked it better when it was Hannity and Colmes. The program seemed more serious and dealt with issues directly . He has too many cutsy things now, and even the American Panel is boring. Some of the guests just want a stage for themselves.

Sean is best when he leads head on with someone. He can be a pit bull at times, but it is never a bore when he has his facts down straight.

You are right. I’m a talk show junkie and I turn him off at times—too boring. I can’t stand when he has people on to have a debate—then they talk over each other.

The absolute best talk show is Quinn and Rose (although I don’t like Rose) but I love Quinn. I don’t think anyone works harder than he does, and he’s not afraid to bring up anything. His website: www.warroom.com You can check to see if he’s on in your area—in the a.m. from 6-10.

I personally think he just parrots Rush and others, but, I like him.

During the 2004 election my brothers and I went to one of his live shows. During a commercial break I made my way to the front and was trying to snap a picture of him and every time I would get a shot somebody would walk in front of him. He noticed, got up and called me over and had one of the staffers take a picture of us together so I'm a fan just because I think he is a hell of a guy.

Sean essentially campaigned for Schwarzennegger in Calif; he campaigned for Rudy. A republican from NY is not the same as a republican from say, Texas.
