LEVIN: I'm not happy with the candidates. There's too many of them. I can't control it, and neither can anybody else. I think we conservatives will have to rally behind one or two or three quickly. Or the RINOs will pick us off, as they did with McCain and Romney and hope to do with Jeb Bush, among others.
On the Democrat side, this is amazing to me. I don't know how Hillary Clinton hasn't at least served some time in prison, given her background and what she's done. Now they set up this front group to loan their money through so the sources of the money wouldn't be known. That Bill Clinton receives. There's so much graft, corruption and sleaze in this family and what they do. Yet, apparently, that's the definition of the Democrat party. She is, right now, unless you take the goofball from Vermont, she's right now the only so-called serious candidate the Democrats have.
HANNITY: If you were running against Hillary, they've gotten away with so much in the past. Do you focus on the scandals or focus on how to get 93 million Americans back in the labor force, 50 million Americans off food stamps and out of poverty. Do you focus on the debt and deficit, securing the boarding, do you focus on energy? You have to have a positive agenda and tell people how to get them back to work and stop robbing her kids.
LEVIN: I think you have to do both. I don't think the candidate should get into e-mails and what it said on May 12th, 2014. You can leave that to surrogates and others.
I think the key here is to have a principle conservative message to connect with the blue collar and other collar democrats. To keep the base. To connect with the American people. And to have a positive, strong, consecutive, principled message.
Now is the time.
To promote our position and to contrast it with the left. The Obama economy, let alone the foreign policy, they've been a complete and utter disaster. The Democrats want to do more of the same. Tax, debt, illegal immigration, kill the currency, leave our allies on their own, stand back and watch genocide. This is a record.
If we can't win this time around, I don't think we're ever going to win.
