The conservative Website World Net Daily has begun pushing Sean Hannity for President.
Given the incredible lack of any attractive Republican candidates for President in 2012, that may not be as far-fetched as we might think.
Remember the derision that greeted Ronald Reagan, the then 'B' movie actor when he said he was getting into politics? Hannity has often asked 'What would Reagan do'? when it comes to an issue.
I suspect if Reagan was alive and saw the stumblebums on the GOP side trying to run for President, he'd jump right in.
WND founder Joseph Farah stated that he would be ready to lead the fight to have Hannity run.
He cited a recent discussion between Hannity and fellow Irish conservative Bill Cunningham as the reason why he thought Hannity might run.
In that conversation Hannity said he would consider entering the front lines of the political fray if God directs him.
"I've never made a decision in my life without ... whatever destiny God has you've got to fulfill it," he said. "I'm not sure that's my destiny."
Farah states "Hannity would make a formidable candidate, with the likability of Reagan, good looks and strong convictions. He's also a polished communicator and knows the issues inside out."
Farah is right, When you compare Hannity to the sad sacks that now are seeking the office, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin et al, Hannity has a huge edge in freshness, likability and debating skills -- there are few better.
Perhaps it is no accident that Republicandepot.com, the site that pushes all things Republican is already busy advertising Hannity for 2012 buttons, stickers and signs.
Remember no one saw Barack Obama as a truly viable candidate this time four years ago either. Hannity has the looks, the charisma, and above all the bottle to take on the Obama crowd.
Run, Sean, run!
