Q & A: Sean Hannity

In the two minutes before Sean Hannity's speech this morning, he told me what he thinks evangelicals care about.

"The issues that they care about family values, cultural values, obviously issues involving life. Government policies that impact the family positively, higher taxes impact whether families can make decisions about where they send their kids to school, whether they can go on vacation, whether they can go out to dinner. All of these things impact our families. If there's burdensome regulation and taxes, that impacts evangelicals.

My opinion based on my interpretation of the evangelical friends I have and of which I'm one, the Republican Party is not a perfect party, but it's certainly more in tune with their values.

You always vote for the person, their values, their principles. Just because you're a Republican doesn't mean you're right. I'm looking for where are those Reagan conservative values and do they believe in limited government, liberty, freedom, strong national borders. It's more based on the issues and than one particular party."
