Posted on 06/23/2013 3:00:40 PM PDT by montag813
Bill O'Reilly shocked the conservative blogosphere when he came right out and endorsed the 'Gang of 8' immigration bill - even though there was no actual bill text available when he endorsed it.
O'Reilly's surprise backing came on the very day that the so-called "Border Surge" amendment, sponsored by Sens. Corker (R-TN) and Hoeven (R-ND) was announced by the desperate amnesty-pushers to try and save the bill, but before some of the nasty details of it had been introduced to the Senate.
Bill'O's total betrayal of "the folks" also came after The New Yorker reported that he and FoxNews anchors Sean Hannity and Neil Cavuto held a secret meeting with 'Gang' members McCain, Rubio and Graham, and promised to support it.
O'Reilly denied this report in his endorsement of the bill...
An incredulous Laura Ingraham came on right afterwards, and proceeded to rip O'Reilly to shreds.
Check out the part when he pathetically hangs his entire defense of the bill on the fact that John McCain TOLD him he would support the border "this time", unlike the 1986 amnesty and 2006 border fence bill.
Nice work, Laura.
For someone who denied being given marching orders by his amnesty-supporting boss Rupert Murdoch to back the bill, Bill-O certainly has absolutely no defense for the actual substance of the bill. The amendment does nothing to guarantee border security before amnesty is granted to millions of illegals, and even gives the DHS Secretary an unlimited waiver to cancel any and all border security promised.
In fairness, when he endorsed the bill Thursday, O'Reilly had no idea of this waiver grant.
But why endorse the bill? Why the rush? Was it because polls and whip counts showed the bill was on the verge of collapse and his secret cabal were determined to rescue it ASAP?
Oh yes, that's right, there was no secret meeting, right? Bill denied it.
But wait...who is the one quoted by the New Yorker about this meeting that Bill said never happened? Let's see...
McCain told me, Rupert Murdoch is a strong supporter of immigration reform, and Roger Ailes is, too. McCain said that he, Graham, Rubio, and others also have talked privately to top hosts at Fox, including Bill OReilly, Sean Hannity, and Neil Cavuto, who are now relatively sympathetic to the Gangs proposed bill.Ah, so John McCain reported the secret meeting that O'Reilly says never happened.
But didn't O'Reilly just say John McCain is not a liar?
"The folks" who would be devastated by the 'Gang of 8' disaster are waiting for your answer, Bill.
How much did they pay you, Bill O’Blowhard?
Did I claim superior intelligence? Where?
However, I'm not an unprincipled, lunkheaded boor who thinks he knows everything while constantly making a fool of himself. That's O'Reilly.
Harvard....he went there for one year. Are you so impressed by leftwing Ivy League propaganda centers? In my view, someone who learns a trade as a plumber or an electrician is better off.
Interviews "VIPS"..... so do the Hollywood morons on the E! Entertainment channel. You seem to value very superficial things.
LOL, how old are you? About sixteen, I'm guessing?
I loved every minute of watching “The King of Bloviators” get his a$$ handed to him by Laura.
SEE POST 136....
You are confusing success with principles. I never claimed BOR is a principled conservative. In America the general gauge of success is money. People like Buffet & Microsoft-Bill are famous celebrities because of their monetary success. And by that yard stick BOR is eminently successful. I am assuming you are not. I am also not anywhere near BOR’s success. But I have a feeling you are a much more principled conservative than BOR. Even though I have lead my life with conservative principles, I do not make it a habit of making childish fun of people I disagree with on issues.
Based on your posts here and on your previous posting history, that is highly debatable.
"I do not make it a habit of making childish fun of people I disagree with on issues.
Then don't do it. I, on the other hand, will mock that thick-headed, boorish, know-it-all idiot to my heart's content.
Kim Kardashian has made quite a bit of money, too....maybe she can be the next beneficiary of your breathless gushing.
Whoever said “watch what they do not what they say”.
Based on that my life is boringly conservative, in the true sense of the word. I do not smoke, do not drink alcoholic beverages, do not gamble in casino’s, never done anything illegal, never collected a dime in welfare, live within my means (actually below my means), vote for fiscal conservatives, back strong military having lived and visited over 30 countries, and vote in every election. Can’t get more conservative than that!
