Skip to comments.Bill O’Reilly unloads on Alan Colmes: ‘You are lying! (video)
Posted on 03/06/2013 7:24:56 AM PST by chessplayer
The OReilly Factor host Bill OReilly unloaded on show regular Alan Colmes on Tuesday for failing to name a specific program President Barack Obama would be willing to cut, other than entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
It’s just a show. I would not trust bill as far as I could throw him.
Sorry, an error occurred. The error has been logged.
Colmes didn’t act like it was a show. That perpetual sneer on his face disappeared pretty quick.
“Its just a show. I would not trust bill as far as I could throw him.”<<<<<<
Touche! Bill doth love his Harvardness so!
It was good theater for TV however there’s a point that maybe BOR was trying to drive home: In recent years liberals have gone well beyond defending their beliefs and into the realm of outright lies to deceive people. IMO this has now become an acceptable tactic in liberal circles. Lie, dissemble and distract. It may be that BOR’s tolerance for this game has reached its limits.
Link no good.
I agree with your analysis.

What's going on?
I have been getting this on every link to new article that I have tried.
It appears to be a Free Republic problem as this has happened to me several times today trying to go to the site with the article.
Saw it (nothing else was on). Bill was right. He asked Colms for obomas fiscal cutting specifics other than just obomaspeak. oboma says a lot of niceties when in front of a camera, but does nothing but destroy when the cameras aren't there. All pretty talk, but NO action what so ever to back it up.
In short - he lies his as$ off, and no one calls him on it. This time, O'Reilly couldn't help himself. oboma is destroying the country, and O'Reilly is calling him out.
For the first time in a long time, I actually liked O'Reilly. Usually, he just stands in the middle of the road like a zombie. This time, he loudly defended the country without an apology.
Kudos for O'Reilly.
I got that too, go back to "latest articles" and click "Dailycaller" and it goes through.
I believe the unbiased and balanced media has finally had it from the lying and biased media... we needed that fire last year.
Yep. Gotta give credit where credit is due. O'Reilly get's one "Atta Boy" for this one. He's finally caught up with the other half of the country.
NOW he understands where the TEA Party is comming from.
Maybe this was a bit of Kabuki theater, maybe it wasn’t. But the sheer fact that this went out over the air shows that something is going on behind the scenes and whatever it is, Obama will not benefit from it.
A few years back there was an article on FR that I referenced before but could not find again, about a supposed interview with a CIA type that said that the world at large (in the world of power sense) would go along with Obama until he did something that threatened that power. Then cracks would emerge and his fall would be swift and total.
True or not, we can only hope.
Boy I thought Mr Bill was going to jump over the desk and cold cock that little snarky commie Kolmbs! Now that would have been great TV!
No one is happy with the direction the country is going (execpt for the 30% of scroungers who'll do anything, and I mean anything for an extra welfare dollar on the 1st).
The Republicans are missing something very important - oboma is the one driving the bus. He's the leader of all this. He's the man in charge of all this. They've got to get out and remind people of that little fact over and over and over again until people get sick of hearing it.
Hadn’t watched anything on FoxNews in two or three weeks, but reading here about the O’Reilly hubbub, I tuned in for the replay. It was worth catching. Don’t really know how sincere it was or not on O’Reilly’s part. Hard to sometimes gauge, with his carnival-barker tendencies. But compared to years of O’Reilly constantly splitting the middle and giving Obama “the benefit of doubt,” it was a welcome reversal.
There may indeed be a shift going on. It was almost imperceptably subtle, but that day last week in which the news broke of Obama opening the doors to let loose the illegal-alien criminals... you could sense a ‘disturbance in the force.’
Bill is just still pissed about his generator.
The fact that they do not shows they WANT what Obama is doing. Simple math. If they did not, they have more than ample evidence on any number of issues to scream it from the rooftops and even impeach his ass.
The conclusion points only one way.
O must have looked at his internal numbers and seen them falling.
I agree with you. It is mind boggling. Colmes is good a warping the message and needs to be called out. There are things I don’t like about O’Reilly, he talks over too many people, but he is really an honest, traditional guy with a touch of narcissism. I think it comes from his upbringing and it was obviously very lower to middle class. Harvard for him was a magnificent achievement. He is basically a very sound fellow with a good heart.
The USA and its economy won’t last that long...
You’re right. I watched it only because it was talked about here on FR, but the way he kept making references back to it during the rest of the show tells me that this was a controlled event that he orchestrated just for the show business aspect of it. In other words, it was just for show. Manufactured outrage.
I disagree. Colmes is horrible at it. He was Hannity’s punching bag for years and all he does is spout one bald faced lie after another. Take away his script and he’s nothing. WITH his script he’s probably worse.
Look at the guy. He’s physically horrific. His voice is nails on a chalkboard. His ‘smile’ makes pacifists want to punch it. His various ‘shows’ are always short lived.
I’m sorry, but I do not see him as a good rep for the Left. For us he would be a goldmine. And therein I think lies your issue.
BO did what EVERY person should do when ‘debating him’ on TV. Hannity (And I’m not a fan) used to do it regularly. You simply call him on his/the left’s BS and don’t back off no matter how big his snit fit gets.
It’s just that no one does. Same for any random leftist up to and including Obama. It really is that simple.

I think he had become obsessed with getting obama on his show again, and thats why he bent over backwards to give obama the benefit of a doubt. I think he’s finally woken up to the fact that it isn’t going to happen. I’ve noticed over the last few weeks he’s come down harder on obama. A lot harder.
I think he honestly lost his cool, and felt the need to justify his outrage for the rest of the show, because he didn't mean to show the viewers that loss of emotional control.
I think he's just had enough. oboma is getting away with the most destructive policies this country has ever had to endure, and even O'Reilly can't stand to watch it anymore.
He's usually a middle of the road type of guy. If he takes sides, he loses viewers. His claim to fame is his lack of bias and sticking to just the facts.
And I think this was the first time I’ve ever seen him go off on another Foxnews employee like that. It was in your face “you’re a liar, Colmes!”
Does anyone else find it ironic that the “specific cuts” being touted by the mindless Libs are Medicare?!?!? They are rallying the liberal mouthpieces to claim credit for the $716 billion in cuts as a demonstration of their fiscal capability. Yet, during the campaign, they did everything they could to lie and say “we never cut Medicare”. The level of absurdity in this circus is unbelievable.
Carnival barker! LOL! A great way to describe the bloviator!
“I think it comes from his upbringing and it was obviously very lower to middle class. Harvard for him was a magnificent achievement. He is basically a very sound fellow with a good heart.”
I think that BOR is deeply offended by the elitism and hypocrisy he see’s at Haaaavvvvaaaard. The depth of intellectual dishonesty at that institution is just astonishing.
Here now! What are you, ungrateful?
Bill is “looking out for the folks, ‘cause the buck stops here!”
NOW he understands where the TEA Party is coming from.”
The left is truly pushing “all TEA Party is done, doom and gloom, yesterday’s news, dead in the water.... etc. Our very Conservative county in WI has a co chairman of the Dem Party who writes editorials all the time in the local paper. His latest column was exactly that! Sorry to tell you, but the TEA Party IS dead. blah blah. I wanted to write back that there is a comedy club in Milwaukee that is looking for new talent... haa but didn’t want to stoop to his level.
Academia all over the nation is so left it us mind boggling. I can’t comprehend it. One of my professors a real leftie, commented on my conservative ‘stance’ and told me he was surprised because I was bright enough to be a liberal.
Can you believe it? I honestly burst out laughing right there!
Colmes is plain down right creepy...but he is good at not addressing the facts as was pointed out last nite. He gets away with it in general by spewing a lot of BS.
That’s why this is such an easy ‘fix’ for us. Just don’t let him/them spin. Stop him cold. Call him a liar, mock him for it and say, “When you have an honest answer, give it, otherwise, STFU”.
Rinse/repear/often. Problem ends when thats all the public sees. Because if they can’t blather, they can’t get people to believe the blather.
So F’ing simple. But so rarely happens. And BR of all people...whoda thunk?
Gee...I wonder why.
Liberals live in a world uncomplicated by reality and messy facts that would destroy their utopian ideals. Your informed conservative “stance” threatens their high minded, elitist views because you might be so brazen as to point out the illogical consequences of their ideas. They see conservatives as intellectual neanderthals and you do not fit their mold. That results in a form of cognitive dissonance for them. I really admire your intellectual courage and integrity.
