SEAN HANNITY, HOST: With each new day it seems that more and more Americans are speaking out against the direction in which Democrats are now taking this country. And that is our headline this Wednesday night. "Outrage." But unlike when it was members of their own party protesting, Democrats are now chastising anybody with an opinion.
Now the Democratic National Committee has even gone as far as releasing an advertisement calling protesters "an angry mob." Let's take a look.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The right-wing extremist Republican base is back. They lost the election. They lost on the Recovery Act, the budget, and children's health care. They've lost the confidence of the American people after eight years of failed policies that ruined our economy and cost millions of jobs.
• Great American Blog: Watch the DNC ad and sound off!
Now desperate Republicans and their well-funded allies are organizing angry mobs just like they did during the election. Their goal? Destroy President Obama and stop the change Americans voted for overwhelmingly in November.
SENATOR JIM DEMINT, R-S.C.: It will break him.
RUSH LIMBAUGH, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: I hope he fails.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This mob activity is straight from the playbook of high-level Republican political operatives. They have no plan for moving our country forward, so they've called out the mob.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: And I want to know why are you people ignoring his birth certificate.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE : Call the Republican Party. Tell them you've had enough of the mob.
The Democratic National Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising.

HANNITY: All right. There you have it. Democrats are alleging that the countless Americans that we have seen speaking their minds at town halls around this country are funded by special interest groups. Well, the latest person to be confronted at a town hall was House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.
Let's take a look at this video.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They're lying to me.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: That's right.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What are you waiting — I don't have sophisticated language. I recognize a liar when I see one.
