Skip to comments.C4P: Video - Governor Palin on O'Reilly Tonight( defends Tea Party)
Posted on 02/16/2010 8:30:21 PM PST by Bigtigermike
The current polls are indeed pointless useless, she gets better and better on a daily basis, just think how good she'll be by this time next year. She'll kill on interviews, debates and speeches. The best part of it is that she knows it too!
Pretty good. I like the part where she basically insulted him as he was insistent on equating tea partiers with nutjobs. I think it was half way through the first video. She also seems more at ease. She is getting better.
I was watching, she was AWESOME! She took O’Reilly on and won.
O’Reilley ego is just as high as Obama....SHEESH!!
I’m rapidly tiring of him. He defends, then attacks the Tea Partiers...then attacks, then defends.
Bill, you sumbitch, pick a freakin’ SIDE then stick to it.
I remember not being impressed with Reagan early on and we all know how that turned out. I have to say I'm more impressed with Palin in the early stages...
He seems to do that as a way of appearing impartial...some people pull it off and some are just irritating...
Bye bye 0’Reilly. No more for me either. He’s a butt head.
Ping to me watch it tomorrow.
She was especially good tonight, I thought. And she’s always good. It also seems to me that O’Reilly is having trouble with the Tea Party because it is a “folks-based” movement that requires no purchasing of Factor Gear to keep its mojo.
As for the stuff about the Family Guy attack on Trig, I’m with Mr. O and Sarah on this one 1000 percent. I know the Left has targeted Trig as a way of breaking Sarah Palin but (1) it ain’t working, and (2) do they really think the average person thinks this stuff is funny?
Pretty much the final straw was when he lied in bashing Free Republic. He was trying to play his "I'm just in the middle and denounce both the left and right extremes" game. He was comparing FR to some lib board and selected 3 posts that he claimed as examples of extremism. One was legitimate, although the mods killed it within I believe it was less than a half hour. The second example actually said the exact opposite of what he claimed it said...but he took just a piece of the post out of context. I don't remember the exact wording but it was like if I said...I think it's wrong to say blacks are bad people inherently". And then he would edit it to say I said..."blacks are bad people inherently" leaving out my condemnation of it. That is massively dishonest of him. The third example didn't appear to have ever existed. At the time the board was searched for the post to find out what was up with it and it was never found. He was contacted and challenged on it but he never addressed it or corrected his false statement. I won't waste my time watching a lying loser like O'Rielly.
That would eliminate O’Reillys primary stock-in-trade, his ability to be on whichever side of an issue serves his purpose at the moment. The only difference between what he thinks of the Tea Party and what the NYT wrote is the degree to which they feel superior and smarter than “the folks”.
Neither does my family watch him anymore. He's far too liberal for us to watch this close to dinnertime. Tea Party bashing, Geraldo, Marc Lamont Hill, Alan Combes- no thank you to most of his "regulars." He has, of late, become totally unwatchable.
BOR had a point that the Tea Party needs a leader. It needs to define its values and have a spokes person to either include or exclude extremists. To say something like: birthers and neo-nazis are not part of the Tea Party agenda. Otherwise the independents, who after all decide things; are going to be fed birther and neo-nazi imagery as equated to the Tea Party. It’s not fair but it’s a marginalization risk that has to be preempted.
Eventually same leadership has to define when to join the Republican Party and under what conditions, i.e. when the GOP becomes RINO free.
You summed it up very well. Bill 0’Reilly and Barack 0bama = BO, Bad Odor.
I can barely watch O’Relly anymore, I would have liked to have heard what Gov Palin had to say but he is such a boar that whatever points she brings up he will merely ride roughshod over.
Good for the Conservatives that she has that platform and that she has a opportunity to display her skills.
Washington, Adams, Jefferson...
He tried to trap her into saying she’s a birther.
Bill is smug,arrogant, and vain much like obama
The Fox gig is great for Sarah Palin as it allows her to talk and get across her ideas on what our country and society should move towards. The more I see and hear her, the more respect I have for her. I believe others will also have this reaction. She is the real deal and her defense of who and what Tea Party participants are was stellar.
The McPain campaign was inept and mis-focused, but the one good thing to come out of it was bringing Sarah Palin to the national scene.
What do you bet that BOR comes out with the Tea Party Factor hats/cups/floormats/shirts collection, just to “help the
folks”, don’t you know.
But he’s Fair & Balanced, donchaknow? O’Reilly couldn’t distinguish between Rahm Emanuel’s calling some people “F’ing Retards” and Rush Limbaugh using the words “retard” or “retarded” in discussing the matter while not ever describing anyone with either of those words.
yeap she saw it coming too and had a great come back everyone has 1st amendment rights. even those we disagree with.
If there was a way the two of them (Beck and O'Reilly) could profit from so-called "birthers," they'd be doing it. As of late the self-promotion of skits, shows and merchandise appears to have supplanted show content therewithin.
Merchandising seems to be the "factor" now (he's using the pens he sells - and books, bags, doormats and shows with Beck). It's a regular circus now.
The NYT should never be allowed to define the Tea Party or it's agenda.
Thank gawd nobody reads the damn rag...
BOR is such a SNOB. Nouveax riche. He says he's for the folks, yeah the elitist snob folks.
They don't get the tea party folks because they don't know any tea party folks. They don't meet them or run into them in their ivory towers. It's a movement not a political party or a personality driven regime. It's a revolution. Peaceful for now, but bloody if it has to be. Just think 1776. They weren't far right loons or radical extremists, they were PATRIOTS. Tea partyers and their supporters are modern day PATRIOTS and we still have our muskets at the ready if needed.
Sarah pwned O’Reilly bigtime.
He was almost speechless at the end—we should be grateful to Sarah just for that!
O’Reilly always tries to equate a fringe with everyone else.
He did that to FreeRepublic and the SwiftBoatVets. Now he ‘s trying to fot hat with the Tea Party.
This from a guy who supposed to be “looking out for the folks.”
Sarah also showed that she keeps her promises. I rmember her speech at the GOP convention, about folks with special nneds kids having an advocate in the White House if she was elected VP.
The truth is, they will have such an advocate in the Oval Office—on 1/20/13.
bill acts like hes drunk-
Both O’ReIlly and Obama are textbook narcissists.
Yep, more appearances like this and people will see her for who she is; that was excellent. And sure, BOR is an insufferable blowhard, but he’s actually doing her a favor by asking tough, skeptical questions from the MSM narrative. It lets her come back strong and, I believe, it brings along some of the many moderates who watch his show.
>> She is getting better.
She was great. Seems to be acquiring the things she needs.
Both Palin and Bachmann should keep the hair off the face during interviews and round-tables. It’s a distraction otherwise.
Beck and O’Reilly are giving Palin the opportunity to address important issues. O’Reilly’s characterizations on some issues can be annoying, but he’s still respectful and is providing the forum for Palin to express her views.
This is one of the best contributions I’ve seen with Palin. Her natural connection with Liberty minded folks runs deep. I’m impressed. She looked sharp.
Marc Lamont Hill: Isn’t he that guy who got his PhD from “Ding Dong School”?
I have a slightly different take.
I agree with you particially about Bill’s problem with the Tea Party group - but I also believe Bill really likes Obama, and he’s liberal/elitist enough that he wants to give the guy a chance - because he’s black.
For me .. peach, turquoise, or green, I don’t care .. as long as they believe in The Constitution and what it stands for; not socialism, or Marxism.
However, while Bill does believe in Freedom and Liberty, he doesn’t seem to believe that there’s anything inheritantly evil about anybody .. and certainly not Obama. I see this attitude with a lot of people. They make comments about how Obama could change and to this or that .. NO HE CANNOT, and NO HE WILL NOT. He’s a Marxist - he has a plan - and come hell or high water, he will see it come to pass.
I got an email tonight saying that the “public option” is back on the table. What’s interesting is that the repubs sent a letter to Pelosi and Reid a couple of days ago asking them if it was true that the dems already had another plan they were going to present at the summit on the 25th. So far, I have not heard if there was a reply .. but the email tonight might be a signal that the repubs jumped right into the truth!
I’ve heard Bill say that we need healthcare reform, when he has no earthly idea what the dems and Obama have planned for that “reform”.
I began to see Bill turn after he got the interview with Obama. And .. what’s wild for me .. my sister even saw it and she was a died-in-the wool Bill fan.
America is going to need plenty of grace and miracles from God Almighty to withstand this evil which has come upon our nation. I hope we’ve learned our lesson well; liberals cannot govern, or lead, or teach anymore. We, the people can no longer sit idly by .. we must always remain very involved in our government.
I thought the very best part was near the end.
They were discussing the “retarded comments”. Palin talked about her continued commitment to working with those with challenged children.
At one point, for just a moment, Palin touched OReilly heart. He sat quietly, the moment was calm. You could see in his body language that she got to him. It was all a good thing to see.
Whatever role she plays we’re lucky to have her.
Sounds like O’Reilly treated Obama much better than he treated Palin.
How do his ratings stay so high, who watches that rude, blabbering liberal lover?
Agree, and I have only contempt for BOR and all of Fox news in how they reported the D.C. tea party in September. It was clearly over a million yet BOR and fox reported it as 70 thousand and BOR zeroed in on the 3 people there that had signs attacking Obama, joining NBC News in painting all tea partiers as racists.
We're tired of so-called "leaders" who are only interested in power (especially the power of their egos.)
The power of the TEA Party is that no one person speaks for the whole. A "leader" who will in turn lead the lemmings over the cliff for the candidacy of their choice, to gain personal power themselves.
The TEA Party is a banner under which various people from all walks of life, from all political parties or no party at all, young, old, rich, poor, who simply agree on some core principles - the strongest being, "We're Taxed Enough Already," and we're not going to take it any more.
In that regard, each of us is equal our disgust of "sharing the wealth (our wealth)" as Obama said and most all of us also agree on the restoration of the Tenth Amendment, even if some have never read it or didn't understand what it meant.
What they do understand, however, is they've seen many, if not most of the freedoms their parents enjoyed (for some it's grandparents, others themselves) taken completely away from them and replaced with some pc rules that were designed by unknown people they did not elect and do not wish to have power over them and their families any more and that's why we're riled up enough to change the system back in favor of "We the People" instead of the permanent class in Washington.
Bill has become just another useful idiot for the leftists.
His ridicule of those who call Obama a communist is the last straw.
yes, he is pinhead #1 and gives Fox News a bad name.
First, Sarah is a quick study.......she learns fast. She is also very very smart..........Willie Brown, ex mayor of San Francisco said she ‘has the best political instincts I have ever seen’...............
Next, IF she decides to run in 2012, she will beat the hell out of everyone.........why?
She ran for TWO MONTHS and became an ICON.......WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE CAN DO WITH A COUPLE OF MILLION BUCKS AND TWO YEARS TO CAMPAIGN?
The MSM is so stupid. The more they attack her family, the stronger she gets........
What needs to be said is the vast majority of those people are agents provocateurs and some people are trying to break up the Tea Party movement by endlessly bringing them up and demanding people who never had such a thought in their head distance themselves from something they have nothing to do with.
Leftists tried to burn down Seattle and one of the organizers, Jodie Evans, is a frequent guest at the White House. The left ignores the fact it works with crazies. The right should not have to explain what it doesn't do.
I’m surprised FOX allowed her out of her assigned “office” where they put her counting mops.
BOR I think is beginning to have some open and obvious thoughts on how he has been told to handle Sarah. He respects her but I think he is getting fed up being told to play with her like a ball of catnip.
For those narcissism challenged from Wikipedia:
"The name 'narcissism' is derived from Greek mythology. Narcissus was a handsome Greek youth who rejected the desperate advances of the nymph Echo. As punishment, he was doomed to fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. Unable to consummate his love, Narcissus pined away and changed into the flower that bears his name, the narcissus."
Without a doubt, we need... to do some weeding--
