Because of Sean Hannity, Republicans May Never Win Again

In 2010, when the Tea Party won quite a few House seats and a couple of Senate seats , many people were wrongly tricked into believing that a serious political movement had begun and a rise of the Far Right was imminent.

(Frankly, I believe these were ‘protest candidate’ candidates that were elected mostly because the country was at the height of the Great Recession and there was a lot of misery and demand for change out there.)

Well, the call for change is coming to an end, the country is on the mend and the Republicans that want to keep their jobs are drifting back to the center.

And if they don’t drift to the center they will, most likely, be voted out of office because the wacko Right is no longer a viable alternative.

And, I believe, much of this rejection of change is because of a Sean Hannity EPIC FAIL.

It turns out, the majority of Americans do not want to live in Sean Hannity’s world.

His is a world of constant conflict for the sake of ratings.  A world of hammering a message over and over and over again turning his audience into something similar to school children in North Korea.

And it’s a message that never wavers:  “Anyone but Obama…” (The Republican pundit establishment has apparently changed that slightly – “Anyone but Obama or Romney…”)

Well, because of this message – and the millions who follow Mr. Hannity – the Republicans may well be stuck with Rick ‘The Stick’ Santorum (just as they nearly got stuck with Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry).

I can now confirm, with 0% of the vote counted, Rick Santorum has LOST the 2012 general election to President Obama.  

There is no question Santorum has already lost without one vote being counted.  Bob Dole’s loss to Bill Clinton in 1996 will be considered a close race compared to an Obama vs. Santorum election.

Santorum will, most likely, get the lowest number of female votes in the history of Presidential elections (unless you count the Presidential races in which women did not have the right to vote).

However, Santorum will, most likely, win the Fascist vote as he is the candidate with the most images on the internet with a Hitler mustache Photoshopped onto his face.

Now, what’s crazy about all this is I firmly believe Sean Hannity, deep down, doesn’t care how people live their lives.   I firmly believe that if the ratings dictated a different point of view, Mr. Hannity would shift on a dime to the Left and still claim that his moral compass has never wavered.

He would refute this claim vehemently.  And, to be fair, he has never had to face that problem because there are millions of Americans that he has focused on that love the bomb throwing, the red meat and any other political metaphor you can think of.

It is obvious we are living in a crazy time when Ann Coulter is the voice of reason at CPAC.  Say what you want about her, she is not a stupid person.  She knows there is only one candidate that has a slight chance against President Obama and that is Mitt Romney.

Why the Republican establishment hasn’t thrown everything behind Mitt is beyond me.  Perhaps it’s because there is also a feeling Mitt Romney cannot win either.  (I am one of those people.)

But he’s really the only choice there is to even get close to the lofty John McCain numbers of 2008.

Of course, Sean Hannity (and Rush and all the others) could swing things by full on endorsing Mr. Romney.  But if he did, he would lose half his audience and his street cred as a bomb throwing ‘lover of freedom’ (though most people would consider ‘love’ and ‘freedom’ two things that are lacking in his political philosophy).

Mr. Hannity really doesn’t care who is President.  It is probably more fun for him to criticize President Obama than it was to defend President Bush.  And it certainly won’t be fun for him to have to defend President Santorum (who, remember, has 0% chance to win).

Like I said – it’s completely fine with me.  The implosion of the Grand Old Party is actually quite amusing.

God speed, Sean Hannity – you are President Obama’s best friend these days.

    President Obama said in his inaugural speech in 2008, ” It will not be solved overnight” He stressed that at the 2012 Democratic National Convention and
    The MEDIA is saying that President Obama is only covering his tracks and he
    Did not come through. The MEDIA is a Business, They Slam, Bam, & Move On.
    They do not give a Jack Rip who you are. A 16-17 Trillion Dollar dept. Do you
    Have such a dept. ?? Can you pay such a dept right now? This Instance? No
    Way unless you “Fi-naggle” or corrupt. Lay Off Of President Obama. Mitt Romney
    (Governor) Big Deal! Only Campaigns against President Obama for what he did,
    But Has absolutely NO SOLUTION’S.

    If the Republicans had nominated Colin Powell, they would have won in a landslide.

      How would the Republicans possibly have nominated Powell for the 2012 election, when he ENDORSED Obama back in 2008???????He wasn’t even on their radar as a nominee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. Jonas Braughwhahwa says:

      They meant in 1996 against Clinton. He was the only person polling ahead but he was rejected for supporting abortion rights and affirmative action even though those things are still here and going nowhere. Dole was totally unelectable and the US clearly did not want a change of horses, but I think the idea of a black president with a decent background intrigued most people even back then. Of course the GOP still wants to push ideas for the sake of gaining power that no one is asking for and scuttling anyone raising the issue there are always new approaches to problems that aren’t Democrat Lite. Its been interesting to see the Young Turk theory of Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor go down in flames. And all the while the Democrats just keep rolling out the same play book from McGovern but finally finding someone who actually has a decent stage persona selling it…

    When America comes crashing to the ground like Greece, all of those who worked so hard to put Obama in power will at least be able to know that they did it to themselves.

  6. EV says:

    I agree with you that Rush and Karl have done nothing but harm to their party although Rush is not a pundit, just a really good salesman. George Santayana said that “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” The Republican party should pay attention to this: repeating the failed attacks of the last two elections will not gain them any ground when Hilary runs in 2016 (I hope).

  7. Tom says:

    Does it actually matter if “protest candidates were elected mostly because the country was at the height of the Great Recession and there was a lot of misery and demand for change out there” ?

    Change is Change and usually for the better.

    Better themselves Zero – Aliasing makes the edges of 3D objects softer . The pixels which are situated in the borders of an
    object are mixed against the surrounding pels so your changeover between its particular history and an item,
    say, is considerably smoother. In the graphics below, remaining and right don’t have any zero- aliased .

    [...] The Republican implosion is overwhelming to watch.  Everyone knows Rick Santorum has 0 possibility to win a assignment and a reduction than 0 possibility to a Presidency.  I censure Conservative pundits like Sean Hannity for throwing gasoline onto a glow and creation it scarcely unfit to margin a claimant that has any possibility of winning in November.http://mankabros.com/blogs/onmedea/2012/02/13/because-of-sean-hannity-republicans-may-never-win-agai… [...]
