Reacting to the American people's decision to grant President Barack Obama another four years in the White House, Sean Hannity, during his syndicated radio show on Wednesday, warned Americans: "You get the government you deserve."
The conservative thought leader also urged his audience to stop moping and carry on the fight for conservative ideas and principles in an impassioned monologue.
“We lost a tough election," he said. "And it’s not the first time and it won’t be the last time. But the country will come calling, at some point, for conservatism" either on the issue of national security or economic decline.
He went on: “You can’t give up the fight. You don’t give up in the cause you believe in. You can’t call yourself a conservative. The country we love. What happens to the world if America doesn’t lead? You can take a few days if you want to feel sorry for yourself, not that it's going to do any good.”
After specifically addressing "stunned" conservatives, Hannity then directed his frustration at the half of America that voted for Obama on Tuesday despite his "pathetic record."
"Americans, you get the government you deserve. And it pains me to say this, but America now deserves Barack Obama. You deserve what you voted for," he added.
"I know half the country didn’t vote that way, but America deserves the government that they want and they deserve. Four years ago, the public could be excused for voting for Obama because, frankly, he was a blank canvas. [...] Now he is a known entity. And just barely over 50 percent looked at his pathetic record and decided they wanted more of the same."
"We are a self-governing country and the voice and the will of ‘We the People’ have now been heard. America wanted Barack Obama four more years. Now you’ve got him. Good luck with that," Hannity concluded.
