Posted on 10/14/2004 2:16:20 AM PDT by GAGOPSWEEPTOVICTORY
Hannity: Alright Terry, let me ask you this.
McAuliffe: Shoot Sean.
Hannity: He spent 20 years in the United States Senate, 300 Bills proposed, he only passed five. Can you look into the camera right there -- and don't spin -- one specific piece of legislation that John Kerry passed that made this country better in the past 20 years. Look right in the camera right there. What is it?
McAuliffe: Yeah. I can tell you John Kerry was involved in a lot of pieces of legislation.
Hannity: No, no, no. One he wrote, that one accomplishment with his name on it. One bill. Look into the camera.
McAuliffe: First of all Sean, John Kerry has worked on the United States Senate --
Hannity: One bill.
McAuliffe: Working on. He's working on the Small Business bill, he's worked on defense appropriations. He's had a lot of bills with his name on them.
Hannity (over McAuliffe): One bill. Name one that he's accomplished on his own.
McAuliffe: He did a small business financing to help small businesses that he did in the 90s.
Hannity: What did it do? Small Businesses in the 90s?
McAuliffe: Provide loans for more small businesses to go out and --
Hannity: That's it in 20 years? One bill in 20 years? That's all he's done?
McCauliffe: First of all Sean, this election is a referendum first and foremost on George Bush's failed leadership.
Hannity (over McCauliffe): 20 years, that's all he's done?
McAuliffe: George Bush is the first president in 72 years not to create a single job.. he's got a defecit of $424 --
Hannity: I've got your talking points. I got another question. Let me ask you this.
McAuliffe (over Hannity): He couldn't answer any questions today.
Hannity: No, he did. Let me ask you this question.
McAuliffe: What did he answer? The minimum wage? Health care? Immigration?
Hannity: Let me ask you this question. I'll ask the questions.
McAuliffe: I got my time to answer them.
Hannity: The tone in Washington came up tonight and throughout this campaign, I want to know if you support your candidate repeatedly referring to the President as misleading and lying to the country, Ted Kennedy saying he concocted a war for political gain. Howard Dean saying that the President knew about the events -- that he knew about 9/11 ahead of time. Dennis Kuscinich saying that he targeted civilians for assassination.
These are the leaders of your party. That's the negative tone of Washington. Look in the cameras and tell Americans that you are proud of what your leading Democrats said.
McAuliffe: No I don't think that's true.
Hannity: Are you proud of what they've said. Do you support those statements?
McAuliffe: I am very proud of what the Democrats have done in this campaign, yeah.
Hannity: The President's a liar? You want to call him a liar?
McAuliffe: You bet I do.
Hannity: You support that?
Hannity: And the President concocted a war for political gain? And the President targeted civilians for assassinations?
McCauliffe: Look, look at tonight. George Bush tonight said that he didn't say that about Usama Bin Laden and said it Sean. He couldn't answer the questions Sean.
Hannity: Do you believe George Bush knew about 9/11 ahead of time? Do you believe that?
McAuliffe: No, I don't believe it.
Hannity: As Howard Dean advanced. Don't you think it's wrong that Howard Dean said that?
McAuliffe: I'll let Howard Dean speak for himself. Ask me the questions ---
Hannity: He's your party. You're the head of the party.
McAuliffe: You want to be responsible for everyone in the Republican party Sean?
Hannity: This is what your party said.
McAuliffe: Listen we're an enormous tent. We've got a lot of people who make different statements Sean.
Hannity: Why don't you condemn Dennis Kuscinish when he says the President is targeting civilians for assassinations. We are at war and your party has politicized the war and your party has said false things about the President. Your party calls the President a liar every day. And I think as leader, you ought to say, if you want to change the tone of Washington it's gonna start with me.
McAuliffe: No, no let's change George Bush and get this country moving in the right direction Sean.
Hannity: Why don't you start changing the tone?
McAuliffe: I could care less about the tone today. I care about millions of people who lost their job --
Hannity: So you're proud of that?
McAuliffe: the largest budget deficit we've ever had --
Hannity: The greatest rate of growth in 20 years.
McAuliffe: Why don't we talk about some real issues Sean.
Hannity: The greatest rate of growth in 20 years. We got out of your party's recession. We got out of the negative impact of 9/11.
McAuliffe (to Colmes): Our party's recession don't you love that?
Hannity: A lower unemployment rate.
McAuliffe: 22 million new jobs, a 5.6 trillion dollar surplus.
Hannity: Because the Republicans took over the Congress.
McAuliffe: Oh yeah, they did a lot for it. The Deficit Reduction Act of 1993.
Colmes: They keep misstating Kerry's record, they keep misstating statistics and you can go to the same one that Cheney talked about factcheck.org and get the truth. The same one that he said we should look at during the last debate.
McAuliffe: This is very simple Sean, if people think that George Bush has done a great job in this country creating jobs -- then go vote for him.
Hannity: One accomplishment, one accomplishment. One bill with his name on it.
McAuliffe: Please don't touch me.
If you want John Kerry if you want to move this country forward. You want to create some jobs, you want to cut our deficit in half, you want to fully fund education and health care Sean ---
Hannity: You have talking points 20 years ago.
McAuliffe: And that's why we're winning in the polls.
Colmes: We gotta run. We'll be right back.
Hannity: We'll see on election day.
McAuliffe: I got my watch for you.
Hannity: I'll see you at the inauguration.
McAuliffe: George Bush where the hands go backwards.
Colmes: By the way, if you missed any part of tonight's debate.....
A shouting match.
I'll give Hannity credit. Anybody who can be around McAwfull without beating him with a lead pipe has amazing self control.
No kidding. Put me in a dark alley next to McAufwul and I'd be hard pressed not to connect with a right hook to his jaw.
Hannity showed enormous restraint. I was impressed that he got him to kinda even answer the question by admitting the one piece of legislation that Kerry passed, got McAwful to admit that he advocates calling Bush a liar, and got McAwful to admit that he could "care less" about the tone of Washington politics.
McAwful is the lowest form of pond scum IMHO.
McAwful is the lowest form of pond scum IMHO......
It's an insult to pond scum to be in the same sentence as Terry McCauliff
>>>I'll give Hannity credit. Anybody who can be around McAwfull without beating him with a lead pipe has amazing self control.
I give Hannity more credit for not beating Colmes to a pulp every ngiht...
Sorry folks, but they both sounded like ill-disciplined children to me.
It's hard to pin down a weasel.
Was Joe Lockheart out spinning last night? I didn't see him and have not heard from him much for awhile. Are they keeping him in a low profile position since the CBS thing?
I saw Burkett's buddy Lockheart spewing his venom after the second debate. Didn't see him tonight.
Hannity didn't just touch McAwful, he smacked him up, down and sideways like a rented mule.
IN TOTAL AGREEMENT!
i am in syracuse and know this family.
I met McAwful at CPAC while I was in uniform, he shook my hand and thanked me for my service and I still wanted to punch the SOB in the mouth. What an idiot.
Understandable. I don't see it this way at all. I'm glad these brawls are out in the open. Far better than the way things were 10 years ago.
Sean was great last night - he scored big points in showing how scummy the DNC is and Terry knew it to the point of losing it. And Sean really needs to drop that toad Alan as he can't even come up with a reasonable argument, much less a reasonable point of view. On the other hand, Alan is great as an example of what we are fighting...
A very ironic statement there: "Hannity: You have talking points 20 years ago. "
Whereas Hannity's are fresh, I guess. There is nothing in that transcript that he doesn't say every three minutes. All he did was shout McAuliffe down (not that Terrible Terry doesnt deserve it).
Sheesh, don't these guys ever come up with an original thought?!
Assault! Lawsuit! Calling John Edwards!!!
Makes you wonder if Christa didn't blow the thing up just to be free of any association with that last name.
Yeah, it was great wasn't it? :-)
Hell I am amazed he can host a show with Colmes. I want to strangle that jackass. I will say Sean gets into a lot of shouting matches. It seems no one ever wants to just answer a question
It is long past time for decent people to realize that, when dealing with scumbags, civility is just a self-imposed handicap.
That's the only way to treat a liberal filthball. When they try to change the subject, you say NO! You bring it back.
"Name one bill. No, don't change the subject. Name one bill. Come on, name one bill..." There's no other way to do it.
Hannity: Alright Terry, let me ask you this.
McAuliffe: Shoot Sean.
Now there was an opportunity!! ):
That McAuliffe is a snake in the grass. He and Carville were cut from the same cloth. By the way...where was McAuliffe during the Vietnam War and the early 70's? Anybody know?
This is one of the problems I have, personally, when I listen to or watch Hannity. The guy just runs roughshod over his guests but does it without much substance. In my opinion, the guy lacks maturity and turns me off. I once saw Sean interviewing Art Torres - a dirt-bag character assassin and Democratic Part Chairman in California - on Hannity & Colmes. After Torres and Hannity continued to interrupt each other, Hannity laid into Torres with a tirade that lasted nearly 30 seconds, lecturing Art about not interrupting the host. 30 seconds is a hell-of-a long time on television. I was wincing at the sight of the Hannity train wreck.
I generally like what Hannity does for the conservative cause but I also think that he has hurt the cause with his sophomoric type antics.
Sean VS McAuliffe
Smackdown in an Arizona Town
>>> In my opinion, the guy lacks maturity and turns me off.... I generally like what Hannity does for the conservative cause but I also think that he has hurt the cause with his sophomoric type antics.
I agree. I like to think that Rush plays well to the intellectual element of the GOP base, and that Sean plays to the more close-minded, white-trash element of the base. To each their own.
I like Hannity but he is getting stale very fast. If it wasn't for the great work he is doing with those Freedom concerts and his guests, I probably would listen to tapes on the way home from the office.
Saying that, Hannity hit the nail on the head last night. "One accomplishment." The RATS don't have one. And that says it all.
Who are you calling "white trash"?
I still think McAuliff is on the RNC payroll.
He's such a pathetic and absurd parady that he could not be serious. He has done more to elect Republicans than anyone since Bubba in 1994.
Way to go, Sean. Sock it to em!!
I thought there was something upstate NY'ish about McAuliff, coming from Binghamton myself! The lib upstaters can be more like Irish grifters than real Irish grifters. Something about the climate up there that creates such nasty head gaming monsters!
Democratic operatives seem to begin many statements with "First of all" and never get to a "second of all"?????
McAuliffe: Please don't touch me.
Sean wouldn't beat up the guy who makes him look like a genius every night.
Colmes is the liberal host for a reason:
To make Sean look good both in appearance and intelligence.
As much as I like Hannity, most other liberals hosts that can handle a live format would eat his lunch every night.
Though I tend to agree with you premise, calling H&C viewers "white trash" is a tad "Kerry" like arrogance. What am I supposed to watch CBS?
How does it feel to be among the "little people? "
I said in a later post that it was bad phrasing -- and I am referring a little more to his radio show (compared to Rush) than I am to H&C. I listen to Hewitt when Hannity is on the radio.
Yes, he reminds me of Biff from "Back To the Future."
Whyizzit that just looking at McAwfull brings out the worst in a person even before he opens his mouth?
Anyone know which bill he's referring to here?
You have quite a screen name!
