Skip to comments.Bill O'Reilly, why so seriously ignorant about Obama?
Posted on 09/18/2009 9:46:38 AM PDT by Titus Quinctius Cincinnatus
Did you happen to see Bill O'Reilly last night, scratching his head to a gelatinous mass over the increasing anger in America with Barack Obama? Throughout the program he puzzled that somehow, increasing numbers of Americans actually tie the scandals of ACORN to the Communisty Organizer in Chief. But, he knows much too much, from way too many interviews and conversations with the powerful, to be so gullible as to fall into that trap, himself. After all, reports of nefarious Acornistas are unheard of, to even ABC's Charlie Gibson.
I have a friend who talks about "aperceptive filters" established beliefs, which inhibit the formation of new understanding. Such a mental block must plague many establishment conservatives, from Fox News' O'Reilly and Neil Cavuto, to what, all but a dozen or so in Congress. Apparently, to them, considerations of global Marxist-fascist conspiracies are mind game relics so Twentieth Century. Surely, nothing of the sort ever took root in America, anyway....

He’s not ignorant about Obama, O’Reilly is just another sellout in the media. He’s nothing more. He’s more MSM than Fox.
Yes, O’Reilly is not that comfortable with the right. He always seems to be wanting to play up to the left, as if anyone there likes him. Ridiculing the Swiftboaters. Not wanting to admit the birthers have a point. Must ‘correct’ the record if anyone says there were over 75,000 people at the 9-12 rally.
I don’t watch BOR anymore. He insults my intelligence.
I would bet he voted for BOR. He seems to protect him at times. BOR is just an entertainer, not a serious news reporter. I see Glenn Beck replacing him when his contract is up for renewal.
I watched BOR last night and was screaming at the TV. He was arrogant and dense. I wish Fox would give Beck the primetime slot.
0’Reilly is a blowhard idiot who might be right half the time, but his personality and the times he’s so off-base make him not worth even occasionally watching.
His comments against Free Republic over the years is only one aspect of his idiocy.
He is irrelevant on the political scene and, frankly, all other venues.
He had a guest on the other night, and the guest said Obama is liar and O’Reilly keep saying “really, really he is a liar?”
When it comes to Obama is he a moron.
As for Cavuto, a few years ago Debbie Schlussel was on and she said Muslims in Michigan were chanting “death to Israel”. Cavuto’s only response was I do not believe you.
O’Reilly’s Schtick is that he is a “carefully thoughtful” moderate. It requires him to strain his credibility from time to time when only someone extremely partisan or woefully ignorant would stay in the middle.
I’ve seen him maybe five times. I stopped taking him seriously the second time.
The other night he disparaged the 9/12 marches as being “overwhelmingly white”.
It is all about him patting himself on the back and because of that, I cannot watch him for more than 10 minutes a day anymore.
Aside from dealing quasi-conservative pap, he refuses to recognize some real bad actors and actions. He takes "candor, intelligence and goodwill" to mean he's supposed to be totally blind, not just vision impaired.
Occasionally I like Bilious, but more often not.
I think he’s brown nosing because he wants BHO back on the Factor.
BOR is still one of their top rated shows. I think it has to do with what time it is on. If Beck would have that time, he would blow bill completely out of water.
OReily has to straddle the fence for Fox’s sake at BALANCED REPORTING. He knows the score as well as Hannity who follows his show. Bill makes GOBS of dough for playing the “Balanced” part but he is SMART. Why would he report in any other way?????
O’Reilly was bamdazzled by Barry when he interviewed him....the man has not been the same since.
Bill O’Reilly is a snot nosed New York, Country Club PUNK!
He’s nearing retirement.
I think he’s been bought off.
