White House to Drop Another Deadline?

A quick trip around Hannity's America...

Broken Promises

The White House is quickly becoming the administration of broken promises. As we reported Thursday, because they failed to pass health reform legislation in August, their new deadline is Thanksgiving.

Just one day later, President Obama is going back on his word yet again. Remember this promise?


PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, JANUARY 22: Guantanamo will be closed no later than one year from now.

OBAMA, FEBRUARY 25: I have ordered the closing of the detention center at Guantanamo Bay and will seek swift and certain justice for captured terrorists.

OBAMA, MAY 21: And that is why I ordered it closed within one year.

ROBERT GIBBS, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY, AUGUST 13: The president intends to maintain a — and keep his commitment to close Guantanamo in a year.


Robert, it looks like you may needs to revise that statement. The Washington Post is reporting that the White House now acknowledges it will be "hard-pressed to close Gitmo by the January deadline."

Robert, that didn't stop the president from using Gitmo as a cheap applause line during his U.N. speech this week, did it?

Biden Blunder

Our Waste 101 update is brought to you by Vice President Joe Biden. We all know he is a man of many, many words, and Thursday on a conference call with the nation's governors, the VP shared his thoughts on the stimulus.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Biden said, "In my wildest dreams I never thought it would work this well."

Somebody may want to drop a copy of USA Today on the vice president's desk. A scathing rebuke of the stimulus appears on that paper's front page Friday, saying, "Nearly $10 billion in stimulus aid to repair the nation's tattered highways has largely bypassed dozens of metropolitan areas where roads are in the worst shape."

Don't worry, Mr. Vice President, Robert Gibbs the propagandist will come out and tell us what you really meant to say.

Bad Boss

If you think your job is tough, try being the personal interpreter for Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi. The New York Post is reporting that 75 minutes into Qaddafi's incoherent speech before the U.N. General Assembly, his personal interpreter actually collapsed.

According to The Post, the exhausted aid to the tyrant screamed, "I just can't take it anymore!"

Believe it or not, Qaddafi's remarks continued for 20 more minutes. That's a tough job.

Laughs With Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh was in the liberal land of California Thursday as he made an appearance on "The Jay Leno Show." And much to the surprise of Jay, the studio audience greeted Rush with open arms:


RUSH LIMBAUGH, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: Well, fine, you give up what you believe in and agree with me and we will get along. Why is it I have to give up everything I believe in for comedy?

Tell Obama, no, we do not want you owning car companies. No we don't want you running banks. No we don't want you taking over student loans, and no we don't want nationalized health care.



Great applause line.

But he wasn't done there. Take a look as Rush participates in "The Jay Leno Show"'s green car challenge:


JAY LENO, LATE NIGHT TV HOST: Al Gore may jump out in front of you. If you hit Al Gore, if you hit Al Gore you lose a point. If you hit Ed Begley Jr., you lost a point. So if they jump out you have to avoid them or else it's going to add to your score.

LIMBAUGH: You lose a point hitting those guys?

LENO: On this lap this is when he runs into some obstacles. Watch out. Don't hit Al Gore. Watch out.

Oh, he hit Al Gore.

Oh, he is stopping.

Keep going!



He is hitting Al Gore again!

LIMBAUGH: Number two, I don't care about the —

LENO: Hey, hey!


You know what? I like that game. Good job, Rush.
