Hannity to attend State of the Union with Rep. Gohmert, may run for office in Texas

The guest list for President Obama’s upcoming State of the Union address just got more interesting.

Yesterday, Sean Hannity said he’d be attending as a guest of Rep. Louie Gohmert. Hannity is a conservative pundit for Fox News. He’s had Gohmert, an outspoken critic of Obama, on his show a number of times. The Tyler Republican has even filled in hosting Hannity’s show on a few occasions.

Turns out, Hannity may have his own political ambitions in the Lone Star state.

“The answer is yes, I’d think about it,” Hannity said when a viewer asked via Twitter about his inclination to run for office eventually. “It would either be in Texas or Florida.” Hannity, who has indicated he’s leaving what he calls “anti-conservative” New York, later contrasted the state with Texas.

“How does Texas have a $12 billion surplus when they’re in debt up to their eyeballs in Albany?” he asked. He indicated Texas and Florida’s lack of income tax were appealing lures....

I could swear I once saw a version of the commercial where they yelled NEW JERSEY! but it must be a false memory.

I think New Jersey is funner than New York.

True. But New Jersey has Taylor Pork Roll. It’s not a total loss as a state.

He's not black. He is not being elected in a nearly 100% black district that receives an inordinate amount of Federal handouts. I doubt the majority of the voters in her district have any concept if how big a buffoon she is. All they know is she is black, they get their freebies, and whitey hates them because they have been taught that since they were babies and EVERYBODY else owes them EVERYTHING they want. It is no more complicated than that. Hannity will not have that advantage. And when he comes up against people who have more debate (not shouting) experience, they will turn him into a ideological pretzel. He will not be able to simply turn off the connection to the other Congress critters. Politics takes years of practice in the art of only telling or allowing certain truth to be told. That's why lawyers get elected so easily. They have been trained in managing truth and ABSOLUTELY shudder at the notion of Justice being accomplished. If they are a defense attorney and full, untempered Justice is meted out, they failed to manage the truth to their client's advantage.

No offense meant to New Jersey. It’s just a funnier state. It’s a Jersey thing.

Yes, he has. He leans towards Florida, but would strongly consider Texas. His wife has mentioned she’d like to consider Georgia (where she’s from). They’re in very early discussions about it, but won’t do anything until he fulfills his contractual obligations and his son graduates in 2016.

Ok... if peter king can be a congressman from the people’s republic of ny then Hannity can serve admirably from wherever he hangs his hat. Take boehner... an orange drunk that couldn’t survive in the real world. He is SPEAKER of the HOUSE. That is all that I am saying.

Wasn’t Levin the one telling people to boycott the address? Somebody was.

WA has no income tax but that doesn’t make it business friendly by any means.

I think I may have seen both NYC and NJ versions, too, so you aren’t imagining things.

No Republican who attends the STFU Speech is serious about stopping Soetoro.

They keep complaining that he’s become a dictator, but they keep treating him like a President.

Soetoro is abolishing Congress, persecuting Christians, funding Al Qaeda—business as usual.

just quench my curiosity, what wrong with Beck and Hannity? They are much better than some ex-Kalifornians or displaced North Eastern blue bellies.

Hannity may be the McDonald’s cheeseburger of the conservative movement, but he is kind-hearted and sincere. I support his run for office in FL. Texas can do better.

Beck, Hannity and anyone else you hear on the radio stations are owned by the big boys all have to abide by the dude. Clearchannel, sirius, etc, no matter who the channel is, they are owned by basically 3 different companies, all of whom are in agreement the tea party is evil In their case the dude wants the focus to be on side issues like abortion, terror and not why the little man (us) is always getting the shaft.

OK, I can understand that. I may not agree, but I get where your coming from.

Maybe he's thinking about going independent.

I only ask, because when you start mentioning you have commitments until 2016, it sounds as if you're ready to do something different.
