A day after proclaiming America’s end if President Barack Obama is re-elected, Sean Hannity added to his pile of animosity Tuesday evening with a claim startlingly detached from reality.

In a discussion with Republican pollster Frank Luntz, comparing President Obama to former President Ronald Reagan, Hannity once again showed that he’s not keen to credit Obama for killing terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden.

“They’ve got a foreign policy that shows a lot of weakness,” Hannity said. “I know the President will say they got bin Laden, putting that aside.”

“And the public gives him credit for that,” Luntz interjected.

A reluctant Hannity replied, “But it wouldn’t have happened if he had his way, and I think that could be proven as well on tapes.”

Days after bin Laden’s death last year, Hannity, along with many other conservatives, decided to congratulate George W. Bush instead of President Obama, even though Bush once quipped that he didn’t know, or much care, where bin Laden was hiding.

Hannity also accused Obama of “flip-flopping” on his promise to go after bin Laden days before his inauguration in 2009.
