Sean Hannity: Romney 'Made A Mistake' Not Using Jeremiah Wright To Attack Obama (VIDEO)

Sean Hannity

Sean Hannity criticized Mitt Romney on Thursday, saying that he was wrong to disavow a proposal to attack President Obama's past association with Jeremiah Wright.

The proposal, which was reported Thursday, was commissioned by billionaire Joe Ricketts. It would have featured hard-hitting commercials linking Obama with his former pastor. Romney said that he thought it was the "wrong course" to take in the campaign.

On both his radio and television show, Hannity pounded away at the presumptive Republican nominee, casting the decision as a weak mistake.

"This is what McCain did," Hannity said to "The Five" co-hosts Eric Bolling and Kimberly Guilfoyle on his Fox News show. "I want Romney to treat Obama the way he did Gingrich, and the way he attacked Santorum. I mean, frankly I think it got a little too mean, but now these things are off limits? ... I think Romney's made a mistake here, because the media, if it was him, they would go after him with a vengeance."

It's possible that Hannity was thinking about Romney's own words on his radio show in February. Romney raised the issue of Wright without any provocation then.

Guilfoyle strongly agreed with him, but Bolling said that bringing up Wright would take focus off of the economy, which should be Romney's biggest issue.

"I believe we can walk and chew gum at the same time," Hannity said.

 Romney doesn't want to bring religion into the debate.  It reminds his base of their theological differences.  He's smart to take the high road.

Really not a good idea to go there.I always wondered why the President didn't go after the other candidates when they were spouting the Wright garbage.First if he went to Wrights church for 20 years how could he be a Muslim?He can't be both.And if that is the case then every person  that went to a Catholic church who had a pedophile priest must have been all for pedophilia.
