Hannity: Loyal Bush wingnut to the very end
As Bush's approval ratings circle the bowl, W will always have 1 diehard loyal sycophant: Sean Hannity: "Let me be straight with you — I like George Bush. think he's a man of principle, a man of faith. I think he's got a backbone of steel and he's a real, genuine, big-time leader ... He's a consequential figure for his time. We don't see it right now. History will vindicate Bush as a strong leader the same way it did Harry Truman, another unpopular president of his time." Whoa... Bush compared to Truman? Truman was a Dem, actually served in battle during his time of war, believed in responsibility w/ "The buck stops here", his Truman Committee investigated the scandal of military wastefulness by exposing fraud/ mismanagement, he advocated universal health insurance, supported unions and the repeal of the anti-union Taft-Hartley Act and an aggressive civil rights program via the Fair Deal. Well, I can see 1 area where Bush & Truman are alike: Dewey was actually declared the presidential election winner, but Truman became prez. Bush was declared the presidential election winner, but Gore was actually the prez. I think I agree w/Alec Baldwin when he called Hannity a "no- talent, former construction worker hack" during a recent radio confrontation. And it all makes sense if you analyze it: A no- talent former construction worker hack worships a no-talent former oilman failure/ business hack.
