Bill O’Reilly Apologizes for Calling Alan Colmes a ‘Liar’
Newsmax ^ | Friday, 08 Mar 2013 12:19 PM

Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly apologized on Thursday night for calling the network’s liberal commentator Alan Colmes a liar earlier in the week for saying that President Barack Obama made specific suggestions to cut entitlement programs.

“Even though I’m sorry I said Alan was lying, I should not have used that word, I’m glad the exposition occurred,” O’Reilly said during his introductory monologue on the 8 p.m. show “Talking Points.” …

The Left NEVER apologizes. NEVER.

And why apologize for calling a liar a liar?

Now O’Reilly can go back to what he does best - kissing Obama’s butt.

So I wonder what Obama’s plan to cut entitlements by $400B is? Did Monica Crowley mention it when she rushed to Alan’s defense.

I hope you two wussies passionately kiss and make up.

You're right . . . if he doesn't apologize, then Obambozostupidass will not be able to have softball questions thrown at him by this absolutely phony conservative on his next interview.

Hey O’Reilly I thought your program was a “no spin” zone. Colmes was lying through his teeth and now you start spinning what you meant. Stop the obfuscation and bloviating. Perhaps a better word for Colmes would be douchebag.

The Left NEVER apologizes. NEVER.

When the left apologizes it's almost always: I am sorry you misunderstood what I said.

O’Reilly doesn’t know how to play hardball. We need people who aren’t afraid to call people out on things in order to take this country back.

How long did Democrats go on and on about Bush “lying” about Iraq. I distinctively remember Ted Kennedy doing his thing.

Like someone else posted...the left NEVER apologizes. They demonize people and get into their personal lives, but never care as long as they win. I’m not saying that conservatives need to stoop to that level. They need to call out the left on their lies, though, and not be afraid to do it.

He could have used the typical leftist non-apology apology: "I'm sorry you were offended.".
Note how different that is from "I'm sorry I offended you." or "I'm sorry I said that."
O'Reilly should not have apologized at all but at least he used one of the honest forms.

ALAN COLMES IS A LIAR

Do not expect an apology from me, as none will be forthcoming. When I see a duck, I call it a duck, not a sparrow.

Why apologize to the human Iguana? “....which we call a rose. By any other name would smell as sweet” Paraphrase for Colmes: that which we would call a jackass by any other name would still be a jackass.

O’Reilly has a bad case of “I must always do the right thing..I must be “fair and balanced, I must be polite and respectful of everyone at all times,” blah, blah, blah.

O’Reilly has a temper and he does spout off when he can't take the leftist crap, but then the backs off and apologizes.

I can catch this type of act with Boehner and his tough guy/folds like a cheap suit routine. I had hoped O’Reilly had the stuff to say it and mean it, and not back down. He disappoints and I'm tired of being disappointed. He needs to take lessons from the Great One, Mark Levin. He says it and he means it and he doesn't take “nuthin’ back.

Not only is Colmes a liar, he’s a pathetic human being. And that’s being kind. I think the puke is an alien.

You know, I don’t know who I dislike the most, Colmes or O’Reilly. Colmes at least is honest about his ‘dishonest” position whereas O’Reilly is a phony, self-promoting asswipe.

No, it's more like, "I'm sorry if what I said offended some people". What they are saying is, I meant every word that I said and you go jump in the lake if you don't like it.

His performance the next night with Kirsten Powers was disgusting and intellectual fraud. He’s a circus clown like Rachel Maddow as far as I’m concerned.
