I honestly wasn’t expecting Hannity to go after Michelle Malkin of all people on his show. It was almost like her critique of the SOTU was just a ruse to get her on there to ask her about her ‘lack of support’ for the four remaining candidates.
Now if you follow Malkin, you know she is holding her nose like many of us, especially when the candidates start attacking each other using lefty tactics. And it’s clear, even in her explanation below, that she is focused on their character and the principles they profess vs the ones they actually use when dealing with the ins and outs of the campaign trail.
And it’s been kinda ugly with all the attacks on capitalism and the smear campaigns used in this race. Just today Newt Gingrich decided to pull a Romney attack ad after being criticized by Rubio. If Rubio is criticizing you, you’re probably doing something wrong, and he was.
So the point is that I completely understand why Malkin is waiting this process out. In fact it’s the same reason that most of us haven’t endorsed someone. Not even I have done so, though it may look as of late that I’ve been on the Newt bandwagon. And I kinda have been. But I still stand by my original idea, that I am supporting conservatism over a candidate. If Newt falls and Santorum picks up steam and starts winning, I’m totally happy with that.
Here’s the clip:
UPDATE: Just to be clear, Hannity was fair and pleasant in the interview. But his point that he is now making on twitter is that we are only focusing on the negatives of our guys, and one of them will go on to fight Obama and must defeat him.
In other words, he believes we should be more supportive if for no other reason than we MUST defeat Obama. Our country is at stake and Obama is our number one target. Yeah, I said target.
