Did I just hear Bill O'Reilly correctly?

Posted on 06/23/2014 6:07:25 PM PDT by MacMattico

He said something along the lines of "I have been at odds with the right wing talk show guys at times, but it's very possible they've been right about President Obama all along." He's suppose to discuss this tomorrow. I know it's a teaser for tomorrow, but he's really never come out and said this w/ his ass-kissing-to- get- interviews with Obama technique of journalism.

OReilly is an old ed major. It takes him a little longer.

I couldn’t tell you. I stopped watching that blowhard in 2004 when he said the Swift Boat Vets had no right to be heard.

I’ll expect him to mention FreeRepublic, which has been at the forefront of exposing the b&astard in chief. A lot of those radio talkers rely on FR for commentary.

OReilly pretends to play the middle, giving the benefit of the doubt so he can interview people like the President, etc.

Conservative Talk show hosts dont!

So that would be the difference.

I think what he said was “I see now that my game is up and I must run right in the hopes I can Re-fraud my way out of the fraud I committed for the past 6 years... but many people are idiots and believe people like me because we have radio/TV shows so no problem. I can do this.”

The mic just didn’t translate it correctly.

Ain’t gonna get me back to that loser.

Swift boats a lie?

Military officers lie, and the Kerry Gigolo doesn’t?

Birth documents with incorrect racial terminology and hospital names - and out of sequence numbers tell the truth?

A social security number from a dead guy who lived in a state the Obamadork/felon/POS was never in is a false lead?

Guess OReilly was an early indication that perhaps - just perhaps - Harvard standards had slipped a bit.

And the Obamadork/felon/POS was indication that Harvard’s standards had somehow encountered the “delete” button.

Shove it, ODork-y.

Ted Baxter knows the right wing talk shows have been right about Obama for a long time.....

The man’s a pompous ass, not stupid...

He simply understands now there is no longer any reason to kiss Obama ass for access...

Obama is lame duck of lame ducks....Ted Baxter can see the tusumi coming, he’s just trying to not let it by past him...

Had our local conservative (more libertarian, really) host in Buffalo today state that Obama is intentionally destroying the country and is guilty of treason. Not sure if he'll get any blowback, but he isn't normally one to come out and state something like this so emphatically. We'll see if the low info voters are finally waking up.

I hope so, but more likely he has seen his falling ratings (and Megan Kelly’s rising ratings). O’Reilly has always defended Obama as “well meaning” but sometimes mistaken. It apparently never entered his swollen head that Obama & crew could actually have ill will and evil intentions toward America and Americans.

Obama’s mask is slipping.

O’Baxter has previously stated that he didn’t think Obama was a commie...just another Dem president who was a little more liberal than the rest. Maybe someone has pounded a little sense into Bill.

You know, I hate to say it, but I always pretty much rejected out of hand the birth certificate issue. But I gotta say that the more I look into just who this Barack guy is the stranger it gets. According to one of his Columbia University Poly Sci classmates, he never even saw BHO. Not once. And neither did anybody else. That's just weird. How could that possibly be that nobody - I mean nobody - remembers BHO at Columbia during the years BHO was majoring in Poly Sci?

Could it be that BHO is just a total fiction? It's hard to believe, even for a dyed-in-the-wool cynic like me.

I stopped watching fox entirely after the 2012 election when megan Kelly couldn’t wipe the smile off her face as she watched Obama pummel Romney.
also, it seemed like rove kept saying, wait there’s more precincts to report, as fox kept calling one state after another for Obama.

This is hard for O’Reilly.. he’s always had a fondness for Obama. That has shown in his comments about him and interviews with him. Even though O’Reilly may have some philosophical differences with Obama, he’s still a fan.

Remember when Fox News first hit it big and O’Reilly (followed by Hannity) were the flagships? I lived in Miami and repeatedly harassed my cable company because they wouldn’t run this great “conservative” channel.

Eventually, I visited my Mom, who got FNC and loved O’Reilly. I was so excited to finally watch this conservative phenomenon!

It took about 30 seconds to see that O’Reilly was a total phony and Hannity was ... well ... a nice guy.

FNC actually hurt conservatism. It (and the later homogenization of talk radio) dumbed down the movement which, long term, was destructive.

Folks in the news business, especially the pundits and commentators are entertainers above all else. News and politics is just their genre, like stand up comedy, song and dance, card tricks. It's all an act and may not represent anything close to what they believe in private. The numbers of real conservatives on television today can probably counted on one hand, two at most.

he would never log on.

He went on air to proclaim FR a hate website on par with the usual liberal hate pits.

When the "examples" he used to prove his claim were shown to be erroneous, he refused to apologize.

That was one of the many nails in his coffin. His defense of Dan Rather has not been mentioned but will not be forgotten.

Interesting.

Just the other day, my wife - who isn’t really ‘political’ asked why no one has yet “gotten rid of his ass”. She then asked why Clinton could be impeached for screwing women while 0bama is screwing US while ruining the country, and no one is doing anything to remove him from office.

She isn’t quite what I would call a “low information voter”, but it was still intriguing to hear such talk coming from her.

We used to love FNC and obaxter. I even ordered one of his signed books to give to my husband for Father’s Day.

Then he interviewed rosie odonut and changed his mind about homosexuals... he realized that they are just normal people who want to get married and raise children like everyone else.

That’s when we stopped watching.

BOR is a moron.

He is a blowhard and I disagree with him on a lot of things, and always assumed he was one of these barely competent people who has nice hair that likes to be on TV. But I read not too long ago that he got a 1580 on his SAT (out of 1600), so I have to believe that he is pretty damn smart. In the same article, it said that Rush got 1550, which is easier to believe, but which is the opposite of the liberal caricature of him.
