    SEAN HANNITY, HOST: And as we inch closer and closer to Election Day, it is very important to remember that President Obama is not the only opponent that Mitt Romney is facing out there on the campaign trail. Because team Obama has another very powerful force in their corner. That of course being the mainstream Obama-mania media.

    Now, during a recent interview with former Governor New Hampshire Governor John Sununu, who is in fact a Romney supporter, a left-wing anchor attempted to rattle off some Obama talking points. And unfortunately for her, Governor Sununu was there to set the record straight.


    JOHN SUNUNU, R-FORMER NEW HAMPSHIRE GOVERNOR: Mitt Romney outsourced zero. Obama outsourced 29.


    SUNUNU: Zero. He wasn't there when those issues came up.

    MITCHELL: Well, first of all, the $29 billion are not all outsourced from the administration because...

    SUNUNU: Sure they are.

    MITCHELL: A lot of those jobs still remained here. There are jobs, when you do a grant, Governor, there are jobs here as well as overseas.

    SUNUNU: (LAUGHING). You're struggling, Andrea. You're struggling.

    MITCHELL: Well, first of all --


    MITCHELL: First of all, these are competing claims and we will get back to you with all of the numbers.

    SUNUNU: Sure.


    HANNITY: Call me crazy, but I am willing to bet that the Governor's still waiting for those job numbers or those numbers.

    Joining me now for what is sure to be a lively debate, the man you just heard from, Romney -- (LAUGHTER) -- even Juan Williams is laughing.

    JUAN WILLIAMS, FOX NEWS POLITICAL ANALYST: Well, I love the Governor. I know him well. I bet he's amused by this.

    HANNITY: Well, you guys used to host "Crossfire" together.

    WILLIAMS: We did many years ago.

    SUNUNU: Juan's a dear friend, a dear friend.

    HANNITY: All right. Governor Sununu -- by the way, did she ever get back to you with those numbers?

    SUNUNU: No. But, you know, the interesting thing was that she was trying to tell me that because a little money stays in the U.S. and a lot of money goes overseas, it doesn't mean it's outsourcing. I think the -- her tongue got in front of her eye teeth and she couldn't see what she was saying.

    HANNITY: Ouch. All right. Let's go to the heart and the substance of the issue, Governor, because Stephanie Cutter, campaign manager for Obama goes out there today suggesting that Mitt Romney may be a criminal -- may have committed a felony by saying that he was not at Bain during the years when in fact Bain Capital was outsourcing jobs. He has been saying that this happened afterwards. Now, the other issue to this, and I don't want to go too long here, is Obama -- go ahead.

    SUNUNU: Let's take them one at a time.

    HANNITY: You bet.

    SUNUNU: Let's take them one at a time.

    HANNITY: You go right ahead.

    SUNUNU: Look, can you imagine how dumb this president is introducing the concept of felony into the discourse when this president comes out of Chicago politics, where felony and politics are sometimes a synonym? This is a president whose next door neighbor was Tony Rezko. And President Obama's first real big revenue were real estate deals that had odd coincidences in time and space with a felon, Tony Rezko.

    This is a president whose political training was jowl to cheek with politicians, like convicted felons like Rod Blagojevich. And this President is dumb enough to introduce the concept of felon into the discourse, with a guy as clean as Mitt Romney? This president is not smart at all.

    WILLIAMS: But Governor, look, all of that is character assassination, and you know, guilt by association.

    SUNUNU: But it's all true --

    WILLIAMS: But the fact is -- hang on. Just the fact is that what the Boston Globe reported today was that there was the signature of Mitt Romney on security SEC documents that said that he was running Bain after he claims he had left Bain and was not involved in any decisions that led to the loss of jobs overseas.

    SUNUNU: Juan.

    WILLIAMS: That is not legal.

    SUNUNU: Juan, don't let your blind loyalty to this president make you sound foolish.

    WILLIAMS: Oh, come on.
