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.
