Skip to comments.O’Reilly & Hume Pick Sides In Battle Between ‘Tea Party’ Palin And ‘Moderate’ Rove On Fox News
Posted on 03/19/2013 5:10:18 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Bill OReilly took on the brewing war between Sarah Palin and Karl Rove after Palin called out Rove during her CPAC speech Saturday and he hit back at her on Fox News Sunday. Brit Hume joined OReilly to try to figure out what this latest bout of infighting means for the Republican Party.
OReilly asked Hume, appearing from Miami, Florida in a salmon-colored sweater, if he was wearing material from Hillary Clintons pantsuit before launching into the substance of the segment. Hume insisted that the skirmish between Palin and Rove has little to do with their actual political ideas, noting that they dont differ much on policy, and everything to do with their personal styles.
Asked by OReilly whether Palin was trying to paint Rove as a moderate RINO figure, Hume took a shot at Palin, saying that despite having bailed out of public office she still has a following in the Republican Party but indicated that her opinions should not be be taken too seriously be anyone.
Ultimately, OReilly and Hume appeared to side with Rove and his desire to draft more moderate Republican candidates......

I am so done with the GOPe.
Those are two people I used to watch.
O’Reilly has always expressed disdain for Sarah Palin. Somehow he has the impression that he is better than “the little people.” Conservatives should stop watching his show...in fact, all Fox News shows for a while. Maybe those millions of “little people” would suddenly become important to these blow-hards.
If I have to pick between Rove and Palin I don’t even hesitate.
In that particular pick I am 100% Palin.
Go get 'em Sarah!
I wonder if Palin went underground for some time, who’d generate any sort of anything within the GOP? Is anyone interested in investing time or money on the next lemon they prop up in ‘16? Chris Crusty? Jebba? *crickets*
“Conservatives should stop watching his show...in fact, all Fox News shows for a while. “
Fox News is simply entertainment to try to fill a niche. Murdoch is a liberal. Look at the garbage that Fox, (not Fox News), programs. Murdoch would air dancing monkeys if it made him money.
O’Reilly has NEVER been a conservative. He has said so any number of times. He calls himself independent. I think he’s a fiscal budget balancer and a social shape shifter. I think he just might be a pro-lifer, though.
At Fox News they were so far in the tank for Mitt Romney that when Mitt said water, they said carry.
The lot of the ladies are all pro-abortion, pro-same sex marriage, pro-homosexual behavior, pro-homosexual adoption, etc., etc.
I think Palin was the only conservative female that’s ever been allowed inside the place.
surprise surprise..the same Bill O’Reilly who never got over the fact that Sarah Palin bitch slapped him on his show while he tried to talk over her is taking the side of fatty Karl Rove..gee how come we never hear that the Democrat Party needs to be more “moderate” instead of far left Communist thugs
Sounds like those standing ovations she got are making some people nervous.
Wonder if FOX is starting to think it may have bought a *pig in a poke* with Rove?
I stand with Gov Palin. Choke on a brick, Rove, you POS RINO.
Brit wore out his Romney knee pads on day one and has exhibited some very non conservative/rino-esque views since his retirement and before. Besides, he looks like a bassett hound and that’s all I think about when I watch him.
Politically O’Reilly is dumb as a bag o’hammers.
He sides with whomever “comes on his show” thus explaining his butt kissing for the Halfrican in 2008.
He is good with outing dastardly judges, however, and promoting efforts against perps.. like Jessica’s Law.
Fox News is the biggest bore now. I watch British mysteries on Netflix instead...helping to soothe my Downton Abbey withdrawal pains.
In a related event, I saw an ad for tonight’s The Actor’s Studio with Tina Fey as the guest. She, of course was making fun of SP by imitating her saying, “I don’t like gay marriage because the Bible says it’s icky.”
We HAVE to get a comedy show going that Alinkskys the left. Have an actor playing zero who golfs constantly, while in the bathtub for example. Biden is a laugh a minute himself! The left has the Tonight Show, the Late Show and every other show in which to promote themselves making fun of conservatives. Why don’t we have any comedies that make fun of leftists? There’s plenty of ammunition!
You had me a Bassett hound, but Halfrican just out me over the edge!
Lol! Lol! Post of the day!

Lol! Lol! Post of the day!
You hit the nail on the head!
New choice on the way (I’m sure it will be unacceptable to at least 49% of FReepers LOL)
Thanks; I learned about Herring just recently here on FR.
No longer have cable TV or satellite. Plan to watch less over-the-air news than I do now: about 15 minutes max per day. Haven’t watched any CBSNBCABC network news regularly since before Katie Curerack was on CBS Evening News. Catch the TV news locally for the first 6 or 7 minutes twice a day then it’s turned off. Life is sweeter around this household now. Nothing to learn on cable TV news unless one is studying how to be a blond and shapely jabberer and I stopped trying decades ago.
LOL yeah for me the television is sports and very little else.
I am cancelling cable soon.
R party recently sent me a campaign letter.
Sending it back with a note.
Remove me from mailing list until Rove is gone and R’s embrace Palin and West.
(1) Run a transgendered homosexual couple of color for Pres and VP. Both should be originally citizens of Mozambique with a wealthy white grandmother. Have the Chief Justice marry them on Inauguration Day on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
(2)Guarantee FREE Government Paid Abortions up to the 10th month of pregnancy, or until the child walks
(3) Declare every Mexican in the US illegally a natural born Citizen and able to collect government benefits and free tuition under each assumed name
(4) Allow every white man in the country a maximum $50 per week expenses, with NO food stamps. Tax the rest.
(5) Name a street in every American town after Trayvon Martin
(6)Forbid the extraction and use of Coal, Oil, and Natural Gas, with imported gasoline (from Venezuela) to sell at $10/gal. All electricity to be generated by wind and solar power. Hydroelectric allowed, providing no endangered species harmed. Nuclear Power Plants to become daycare centers.
Of course there's more we should do to attract the younger gay vote, but this is a great start. BTW, Vet, I think it would be swell if you and the other 2d Division fellows would act as flower girls at the inaugural wedding. Everyone would be sure to love us then... and vote Republican.
You forgot: raise the minimum wage to $19/hr.
Faux News has a 1.3 Market share.
Sarah Palin has more than 2 times as many followers on facebook.
O'Reilly is a blowhard. He talks over his guests constantly, and has a stupid sense of humor.
I mean, is it more ethical to quit after winning a second term to run for President or quit to avoid personal bankruptcy because you ran for V. President and made yourself a target by all the kooks who sued you, thus forcing your state to foot most of the bills but also bankrupting your family who had little to begin with, unlike the Bush's?
So Geo. W's. quitting because he ran and won, wasn't quitting but Palin's quitting because McCain lost and therefore she lost, is really quitting???? Hmmm.
Oh how I wish that would happen, as they say, the jokes just write themselves!
For the time being though, we should take that alinsky page and hit Hume hard on twitter. I don’t understand why more conservatives don’t use this tool, it’s not going away anytime soon. If this were a Republican, the lefties would have been all over twitter by now.
Even that wouldn’t satisfy them, I’m afraid. The couple would have to be charter members of NAMBLA, eat Boy Scouts for breakfast, be pagan, promise to paint the White House the colors of the rainbow flag, reject heterosexuals for military service and merge with Mexico. Maybe then.
Bill O Reilly is an official spokesman for the Foxefeller News
Channel (Nixon’s Revenge Network).
Fox News is the reincarnation of Nixon’s tactics to draw conservatives into supporting the RINO Republicans.
Fox exploits the resentments we have to get us to watch, then presents RINO spokesman and politicians to us as the answer to those resentments.
From the linked article:
.......OReilly concluded, history shows the two most extreme candidates in recent times were Barry Goldwater and George McGovern and both got hammered.
Ah......Mr. O’Reilly....did Ronald Reagan get hammered? Sarah Palin is simply an honest conservative with traditional American values and good common sense. And I guess that is considered undesirable now? Has America really fallen this far?
Nudge...the way to socialist control without all that messy confrontation stuff.
