I’m normally a fan of Fox News host Bill O’Reilly

Lost me right there.

I only watch (or record) the Miller segment any more because O’Idiot has gone off on these tantrums to smooth over where the blame lies. ODumbo will grant him another “exclusive” since how now tows the line

Stopped watching long ago. His constant interruption of his guests was rude and annoying.

O’Reilly has the intellectual depth of a mud puddle.

there is plenty of oil and gas in the U.S.A. So supply and demand here should dictate lower prices. But of course, they are not lower.

Because oil, like gold and many other commodities, is a globally priced commodity. As long as the cost of transportation is significantly less than the cost of the material, it will be globally priced.

Globally, demand has risen.

I don’t know O’Reilly’s politics, mostly because he’s all over the place.

He is a liberal, independent with semi-conservative fiscal leanings, until he invents a "new solution for the good of the folks".

His solution for gas prices is a combination of Henry Waxman, Maxine Waters, and Hitler and if you disagree with facts, he will just talk over you and change the subject.

O'Reilly is an arrogant, self promoter with no real political groundings, loves to be fawned over by his courtesans, and since his show has been #1 for over ten years, he can get away with most any thing on FOX.

As usual, Bill O’Reilly’s mouth outruns his brain.

BOR is stone cold stupid on this subject. Adding insult to injury, he won’t listen to people who try to explain it to him. HE truly thinks he is “maintaining” control of the interview. In reality, he is stomping all over the explanation. His problem is that he wants a one sentence explanation for a very involved question that can NOT be explained in one sentence.

Really, if somebody strapped him in a chair and stuck a sock in his mouth, forcing him to listen, he might actually be able to get it.

RE :”Last week, Bill did one of his “Talking Points Memos” on high gas prices, blaming oil companies for the price at the pump. He opened up by paraphrasing Lou Dobbs, saying, “…because of the mild winter, there is plenty of oil and gas in the U.S.A. So supply and demand here should dictate lower prices. But of course, they are not lower. They are much higher because the oil companies are shipping their products overseas. Measured in dollars, oil products are now America's largest export worth $88 billion a year to the oil companies.”

HA-HA, I had to stop watching BoR's CRAP about 5 years ago.

He tells his audience there is one guy in the world setting oil prices.

He strongly pushed for ethanol on his show about 2005, his gullible viewers really believe his snake oil sales antics claiming ethanol would make us ‘energy independent’. Well here we are again arguing about the next ethanol type scam-disaster electric cars.

BOR is just another liberal who doesnt want his taxes raised, much like a con-man Trump. He just tells his audience what he thinks they want to hear.

Bill O is dead wrong on this issue. The government makes more profit on a gallon of gasoline than the oil companies do and they don’t even lift a finger to do it . . . much less explore for it, negotiate leases, drill, transport, refine and transport yet again . . . and all done for you conveniently at the service station around the corner or down the block from you.

Compare that to a gallon of milk. Or a gallon of coca-cola.

This is how con men like BoR and Dobbs appeal to their gullable viewers, making the US exporting oil out to be a negative. I got news for you Factor morons out there watching his show:
1) We import MUCH more oil than we export.
2) Since when is creating jobs here by producing and exporting a product for sales in other countries bad? That is called EXPORTING
WAKE UP, WE HAVE A HUGE TRADE DEFICIT!

With all the talk of corrupt politicians, the fact the so many Americans that believe such idiotic premises just BECAUSE THEY WANT TO is another reason we are screwed.

As I said, 5 years ago BoR was pushing ethanol on his show claiming it would make us energy independent. Well we are stuck with ethanol now!

BoR is such an A$$wipe.

Neil Cavuto did his final word the other day on the same subject, he pointed out that we are devaluing the dollar that we buy oil with. That is why I watch Cavuto and not BoR.

Bill O’Reilly is a very lazy commentator. As soon as he heard Dobbs saying we export oil, he assumed he had found the villains. He is remarkably dumb.

Bill O would rather run down the middle of the road to increase audience share, than stick to any particular set of principals.

There should be a price advantage to "US" from using domestic oil. It's in the ground under our feet and it should belong to all Americans not the oil companies. They should be paid for the pumping and refining but the American oil should go to us and Canada first. (forget Mexico their a bunch of chaotic ingrates in a failed culture)

Let the rest of the world buy from the shieks and diaperheads. They are able to control the price through OPEC but with so much oil being discovered here we should get a break!

BOR is a typical, harvard educated fuzzy thinker. When I can stomach watching his show, which is rarely, I find myself thinking that he's a typical east coast elitist "deep thinker" of the sort that are currently "ruling" the American people.

I saw it and just thought what a hack. We are using less gas thanks to the Obama Meltdown and they have excess to sell around the world at higher prices.

He doesn’t let any oil people on his show to give their side of the issue, only Dobbs who knows nothing about oil. They both think evil Big Oil can make it any price they want.

Pray for America

Oil is priced in US Dollars, which Fedzilla has been de-valuing with high deficits, high debt, and "selling" Treasuries to the Fed in exchange for more printed (and worth-less) dollars.

O'Reilly ignores this fact.

Bill is simple-minded. That’s not his fault. But being ignorant is.
