Skip to comments.O"Reilly Wants President Bush to Apologize Friday Night
Posted on 10/07/2004 10:41:05 AM PDT by JonDavid
Bill O'Reilly suggested today on his radio show that President Bush should apologize at the Presidential debate Friday for no Iraq WMD. If the President Bush did this in the way that O'Reilly wants him to, the President would be making a major gaffe. I could see the sound bites. President Bush has NOTHING TO APOLOGIZE FOR. Also, O'Reilly says that Bush has to clearly win Friday or its over. He keeps on saying that the race is tied. IMHO, O'Reilly is spinning on several fronts: At the very least he is trying to get Kerry on his show, so he is pandering. The Electoral College Polls shows the President with a sizable lead. National Polls mean little. O'Reilly knows if the President says I am sorry for Iraq it would be political suicide. Again, think of the soundbite the Democrats would have. This would help Kerry. The President on Friday night needs to address Kerrys record and recent Global Test statements. So why OReilly on his radio program the day before the Presidential debates is highlighting the Iraq WMD instead of focusing on Kerrys record? He is doing this because thats the only hope Kerry has. If OReilly was really a no spinner and WAS LOOKING OUT FOR YOU he would have STRESSED SUBSTANCE OVER STYLE and endorsed President Bush after Kerrys Global Test and other policy statements after the last debate. So deep down, O'Reilly is rooting for Kerry. The latest Iraq WMD report clearly shows t that Saddams endgame was to get the Sanctions lifted and then restart his WMD programs. According to the report, SADDAM WANTED NUCLEAR WEAPONS!! Its the intent. Thats why Saddam had to be removed form power. I also, believe that the WMD were moved into other countries, like Syria.
That guy is as bad as Michael Moore at times
why even bother posting this?
If this is true, then Bill has finally gone over the top, and lost it.
O'Reilly is a has been blowhard moron.
Bush should never have given O'Reilly that interview.. Stupid move, IMHO.
I want Bill O'Reilly to STFU.
Shrill O'Biley's is Larry King Lite...
BORe is a has-been. He used to be more fair. Now he is entranced by the Hollywood leftys and his own ego. No wonder Britt and Sean can't stand him.
Just goes to show how far Oreilly will go to get sKerry to appear on his show.
I want Bill O'Reilly to apologize for being an ass.
I just don't see that happening though.
That does it for me. I would occasionlly stomach O'Reilly when there was someone on worth watching - not any more.
My thoughts exactly, in fact I'll say it again, O'Reilly STFU!!! You liberal lap dog boot licker.
T'aint gonna happen
The jury is still out about WMD. Can O'Reilly prove, for instance, that they aren't hidden over the border in Syria? Didn't think so.
I'd like to hear Bush say he's sorry...that Mr. Bill is such a putz.
O'Reilly is a big-headed jerk. I bet you in part he's doing this so Kerry will see it and go on his program. He's desperate to get Kerry on and the only way to do it is to bash Bush! Bush should NEVER apologize for getting rid of a tyrant and protecting this country. O'Reilly needs to get a grip on the situation and stop worrying about ratings!
The proof is in Libya, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and soon Syria and Lebanon.
Arabs are scared to death that Bush will target their country next.
Why do these people want the US to be such a failure? Why?
If there is no race, there is no coverage. The news outlets will always tear down the leader to turn a landslide into a race that makes them money.
Fox News is no different. They are greedy bastards just like the rest of them.
O'Reilly is just doing his part to make ABC, CBC, NBC, CNN, and FOX, more money. He is main stream media.
You got it, he wants to create an environment where Kerry would be comfortable to come on his show.
I think he's gunning for Rather's job.
No WMD? interesting. If Saddam had further suceeded with the Food for oil program of which he had millions of dollars in his Military Account, if the sanctions had been lifted he would have been free to produce his biological weapons.
Anyone holding their breath to see if mainstream media will discuss the Oil for Food facts?
Perhaps to remind the drinkers of O'Reilly Kool-Aid that O'Reilly is a moron.
Also, last year, David Kay's interim report stated that regardless of the apparent lack of WMDs, Saddam still had the infrastructure, the scientific and technical expertise, the precursor chemicals, the growth media, and the will to pursue WMDs.
O'Reilly's the one who should apologize...for being such a moron.
O'Reilly: The test on who to vote for is, first, determine who OBL wants for president and then vote for the other guy.
O'Reilly: (Comparing Cheney and Edwards) Imagine if the debate was broadcast into the caves of the terrorists; which on do you think the terrorists would be most afraid of.
I don't think a Bush apology is a slam dunk.
Time to boycott O'Reilly. He SUCKS. You hear me O'Reilly????
OReilly looks so pitiful in his attempt to get Kerry on his show.
The name of his show is an obvious spin...
p*ss on him......he was on Fox and Friends saying that if the President loses the debate ( which he will no matter how he does because the MSM will SEE to that...look at how Cheney slapped Edwards down and some showed Edwards won....no way ) he will lose the election......
OReilly needs to get a real job and shut up with his advise...
Fox has just about deserted us, except for The Beltway Boys and Britt and Hannity... they forgot who brought them to the dance....so they can kiss my grits at times....I have no choice but to watch them for the debates etc, because MSNBC is so godless already I cant give them my little bit of power to help them out...
All O'Reilly, all the time.
You know, I don't think Bush should apologize, but i do wonder why he never has? Why does anyone want him to anyhow? I just don't understand!
O'Reilly should also ask Kerry to fly to the moon with his bed stockings on.
Bill O'Reilly, please STFU.
The longer O'Reilly goes on the more he proves what a dope he is...
That was great!
By that rationale, every member of Congress should also apologize since they voted for the war based on the same intelligence.
Further, what blowhard O'Reilly and many others can't seem to figure out---the American public, at large, doesn't really give a sh*t if Saddam had WMD or not. Rather un-amazingly, the American people are way ahead of the egomaniacs in the press and punditry----they see the big picture regarding this global war. WMD or no WMD in Iraq matters little in the big picture.
O'Reilly on the MSM. They out to just put up the Bush-Evil, Kerry-Good photos and be done with it so we will know what they are talking about.
I think Bill O. has an arrogance problem. Why he would make such a suggestion is beyond me. Bill should start taking his own advice in some regards. I can understand his passion about how that debate went, that Bush had a great opportunity to clobber Kerry and did not --- but, he should not come back with tripe like "apologizing" for his performance. That is food for the libs.
Sorry Bill -- you get a demerit for this one. You should have just left it alone.
Pres. Bush: "I'm deeply sorry...that some Americans are so clueless."
I want Kerry to apologize for demoralizing and lying about the Vietnam Veterans! We are almost 40 years overdue!!!!!
Yep....and he's losing his audience by pandering to the likes of sKerry. Oreilly probably believes that he is irreplaceable.....but that just isn't so.
Yup. These guys will never be our friends, but they know if they allow another major attack planned on their soil, we are coming to get them.
O'Reilly has drunk the koolaid.
O really O'Reilly?
What do you mean at time's, oreilly is to Goebbels as moore is to reisenthal.
