I listened to Hannity for a while when I was driving to work.  It was his opening, and all he could say in the first 5 minutes regarding Obama was a criticism of the decision to bury the body at sea.  

It started with a montage of silly country music and George Bush giving a few of his stupid talking points, then the obligatory thanking of the military, then quoting Lindsay Graham, saying Obama took sensitivity "too Far" in burying the body at sea.  Then he stated, "Now I give credit to everybody here and that includes President Obama" and proceeded to tell us that liberals would never give President Bush any credit for anything.  And then he proceeded to tell us that it was the Bush torture policy that makes yesterday's success possible.  What a bunch of bullshit.  

I don't know what it is that makes these people say the stuff they do, but it borders on lies of the most egregious that I have ever heard.  I mean, it would be treason if we said it about them.  They can't give even the smallest amount credit when credit is due.  All of the years that Bush had to catch this terrorist, and all of the fuck ups along the way, and they refuse to say that Bush was enept in the slightest way. They take credit for every possible positive thing that happened and no responsibility for anything that went wrong.

On the way home from work I listened to Mark Levin.  He's even worse.  Fire breathing, hate mongering, total asshole.  They pick quotes from Cheney that support the idea that it was the torture that made this all possible.  They play old tapes that make Bush and Cheny sound like they're the tough ones.  They just can't live without the hate of Obama.  They will hate him forever.  He could shed his skin and turn into the face of Jesus Christ, and they still would deny it.  

Guess that's why they call it hate radio, but it should be stopped.  Somehow, this constant droning is just wrong, and needs to stop...

Had to get this off my chest.  They're just bastards.

It seems Ed Schultz's show has a lot about this.  Glad to see people aren't just letting them get away with it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
