O'Reilly: Mitt Romney will win the election -- here's why
newsday.com ^ | 9/26/2012 | Bill O'Reilly

Posted on 09/29/2012 6:53:29 PM PDT by Signalman

I don't know about you, but my head is spinning with all the theories out there about who will win this presidential election and why.

I'm as guilty of promulgating them as anyone. Ask any political consultant for a prediction on a race -- on anything really -- and we'll take you on a trip around the world. We're worse than the commentators before an NFL game:

"I'll tell you, Steve, no lefthanded president who has lost the Methodist vote in Wisconsin has ever been re-elected in a year that ends with the number two..."

This is my firm and final theory then -- it is also my first incidentally -- on why I think Mitt Romney will be the next president of the United States:

Romney will win because Barack Obama has not done a good enough job.

That's it.

Call it the Obama-Occam's Razor Theory if you want to dress it up -- the simplest explanation is usually the right one -- or the Homer Simpson "D'oh!" Theory, which I much prefer. But either way, the result on Nov. 6 should be predictable. Most Americans think the country is in trouble and headed more deeply into it rather than out of it, so come Election Day they will replace the current White House occupant with the well-qualified challenger.

Clint Eastwood said this best at the Republican National Convention in Tampa (when he wasn't talking to the chair):

"Politicians are employees of ours," the "Unforgiven" actor and director said. "And when somebody does not do the job, we got to let 'em go."

One thing about BOR, he irritates me when, on The Factor, he keeps interrupting his guests. But...in his talking points memo and in his newspaper columns, the man is usually spot on.

Yeah, I agree with a lot of what Bill says, but he does bloviate too much. A shame, because he gets some really interesting guests on his show.
His sledgehammer interview with Barney Frank is still a personal favorite T.V. moment of mine. Shut that b*stard up quickly.

They have to give them 60 days notice. It falls just b4 the election. If they delay the layoff notices they will just be liable for another weeks pay. The gop can hopefully make sure they get that extra week but then the rats will take care of it.

Mitt Romney will win, because if Obama wins, then America is dead, and she was murdered by her own citizens.

“...There is no doubt that Obama inherited a mess, just as his predecessor, George W. Bush, inherited terrorist attacks on U.S. soil planned long before his inauguration. But Obama made huge promises that he did not deliver.

“He projected he’d bring the unemployment rate under 6 percent by the end of 2012, yet it has remained above 8 percent for 43 months in a row.

“He said he would halve the deficit, but it’s set to surpass $1 trillion for the fourth straight time.

“He promised “post-partisanship,” a word that has turned into a punch line.

“He promised new American respectability in the world, yet we seem weaker on the world stage than at any time since the end of the Vietnam War.”

Freep the poll to the right of this article. Romney’s losing it 40-49 now.

BOR has been trying to get Obama on his show forever and it’s just dawning on him that it’s not going to happen.

Ooops. Someone stole Bill O’Reilly’s password and username, then logged into his account and wrote this refreshingly logical piece.

Boy, is he gonna be pissed when he sees it.

Sorry Bill, but you'll be eating crow the day after the election. The anointed one’s reelection is inevitable.

That’s BOR’s fatal flaw with me. He’s a rude, arrogant turd and that makes me discount every POSition he takes.

Romney will win because Barack Obama has not done a good enough job.

Obama has done a terrible job. And when someone does a bad job you do fire them. But you don't replace them with just anybody. You replace them with someone you believe will do a better job, not someone who you are not convinced wouldn't be as bad or worse. So far Romney has made the case he isn't Obama. I'm not sure he has made the case to the majority of people that he would do a better job.
