Sean Hannity has fellow hate monger Michelle Malkin on his show to help him participate in a major exercise in projection here if I ever saw one. There are plenty of things I didn't care for when it comes to President Obama's Oval office speech about this mess we've got in the Gulf and what's going to be done about it, but the words immature, petulant and child don't remind me of President Obama. They do however remind me of Hannity and Malkin.

Hannity: Yeah, look, I said this and I got a lot of criticism because the President is almost acting immature, a petulant child, lashing out, cursing, blaming, you know, what I got out of last night was besides probably the worst Oval Office address in history or at least in close competition to Carter’s Malaise speech is it seems to be the Obama so-called magic is gone, the rhetoric is old and stale, the rhetorical tricks are somewhat old and boring and tiresome. It just… you know, people aren’t fainting any more Michelle.

Malkin: Yeah, I think you’re being rather generous and I do agree that I think petulance may be a part of it but I think even underlying that there is fear and there is panic in this White House and I think that this czar fetish is just a sign of the manifestation of that. They do not know what executive leadership is so they have to outsource it. You know they’ve got to grab some you know, some other political operative they drag out from the morgue or in the case of the oil spill czar that has now been tasked to restore the entire Gulf, somebody’s who’s already got a full job on his hands. Shouldn’t the Secretary of the Navy concentrate on the Navy for goodness sakes?

Can you help us out?
