Stossel called O'Reilly a "blowhard" tonight

Posted on 07/17/2012 8:37:58 PM PDT by Kevin in California

I guess they were talking about guns and the crime spree going on in Chi-town and O'Reilly said something (not sure exactly what) that brought a response from Stossel of "you're just a blowhard in a studio!"

I LMAO.....

What point were they were arguing, and what position did each take?

Only Crissy Mathews talks over the top of his guests more that Billy O.

Billy O. ignores the opinions of his guests, and thus makes his program into an infomercial on the “spinless” opinions of Billy O.

O’Reilly has admitted to being a blowhard or bloviator and laughed about it on his show. I’ll admit he is tough to watch.

I have to admit it was a mild shock, and O'Blowhard took it well.
I don't think we'll be seeing Stossel there again any tine soon, though.

They were discussing minimum sentencing for crimes committed with a gun. Stossel was against; BOR was for.

Stossel is dead wrong. Liberals judges released murderers and rapists on the public without a care before minimum sentencing came along. They played race feminazi sex bait doctrines in their decisions, too.

BOR thinks if a gun is involved in a crime, that mandatory sentencing is fine with him. Stossel said that mandatory sentencing has not decreased the crime rate; it has merely kept the prisons crowded.

I think he also ascribes to the idea that whatever weapon is used, it’s the actual crime that matters most, not a specific weapon. He mentioned a woman with a rap sheet who shot into a ceiling to scare off her abusive husband. She now faces twenty years in jail for using a gun in this manner.

Here in New Jersey merely possessing one outside of your home is a "crime committed with a gun", unless you are one of the fraction of 1% who are well enough connected to obtain a carry permit. That's a good reason to oppose it.

O'Reilly was just off base on his first four segments last night. It was almost embarrassing.

Mary Catherine Hamm and Juan Williams handed it to him in discussion about drug enforcement laws.

I turned it off after O started ranting at Mary Katherine Ham. I dislike him, but I find the show interesting...usually.
