Mark Levin Goes Off On Bill O’Reilly For His ‘Hit’ On Michele Bachmann
Mediate ^ | 3-21-13 | Andrew Kirell

Posted on 03/21/2013 3:07:40 PM PDT by Dysart

On Thursday night, conservative radio host Mark Levin attacked Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and the “has-beens” at CNN for their “hit” on Rep. Michele Bachmann after she was caught racing away from a CNN reporter confronting her over factually inaccurate claims about the president’s “lavish” White House living.

On Tuesday, CNN reporter Dana Bash attempted to confront Bachmann over her claims that the president has an extraordinarily luxurious lifestyle, but was famously met with deflection and a race away from the camera. On The O’Reilly Factor last night, the eponymous Fox host criticized Bachmann for her “trivial attacks on President Obama [that] are obscuring serious problems in this country,” emphasizing that the congresswoman’s “small ball” behavior “trivializes” the real issues at hand.

“Why is Bill O’Reilly doing a hit on Michele Bachmann the way he did a hit on Sarah Palin the other day?” Levin asked before mimicked the host by mock-asking questions about how many chefs were on Air Force One.

“‘Have conservatives hurt themselves over criticizing Obama over crazy stuff?’ What kind of question is that on Fox?” an exasperated Levin asked. “Isn’t it enough we’ve got MSLSD to contend with, and CNN to contend with? What are all these little cheap shots?”

Does anybody even listen to Ted Baxter anymore? We can hardly stand the sight of him.

Anyone who thinks Bill O’Reilly is a conservative has never watched his show for more than five minutes. At best he’s center-right on some issues, in a Long Island sort of way.

O’Reilly is an ass. I record his show but only usually watch about 15 minutes. Sometimes this jackass is so sick I just delete the rest of the show. His limited knowledge of the law and his love of King Obama being a kind man is so sicking I can't believe it.

O'Reilly is a raging liberal who spouts just enough anti-liberal talking points to convince some people that he is anything but.

btw...Bachmann was wrong when she said Obamugabe has a presidential dog walker. Obamugabe does it himself.

I think he’s starting to lose it. Has let emotion overwhelm his reason, and this has been evident over the last few weeks. Heard something about ongoing legal action and maybe that’s stressing him. As for his political views, he’s a moderate, leaning left socially and right economically, for obvious reasons. I don’t think he claims to be conservative; I don’t know how he could do that with a straight face.

I long ago stopped watching or listening to anything that BOR says. The guy is a sanctimonious, bloviating Narcissist that cannot refrain from reminding all of us that a Harvard degree is woe-fully overrated.

That’s a “Wookie Walker”; not quite the same. I’d rather walk Bo. I wouldn’t go near Her LardAss, even at gunpoint.

And remember: According to him, he’s been to every city, town, country and continent on earth.

He’s a smug jerk.

Because he thinks that if he plays ROVEr the lapdog for the Party Establishment, they'll take care of him.

If Bachmann were a democrat the media would've focused on her points on Benghazi, which were the meat of her comments. Since she's a republican they find some silly assed innacuracies and focus on them.

Disgusting bottom feeders. BOR ought to be careful who he throws in with - people are liable to get them confused.

I swear, if anyone ever deserved a "blanket party" it's him...well maybe Whoraldo too.

Yeah, probably Schlepper Smith as well.

The only time he hit the mark on any topic was when he went after Tiller the Killer, the late term abortionist from Kansas.

Bachmann gave bad info. Maybe she was given it by someone she trusted but either she didn’t check or didn’t care. If you get called on the innaccuracies in your statements and run away then fie on you. Conservatives have been shooting themselves in the ankles repeatedly by their overblown rhetoric which often contain egregious inaccuracies. Jim Hoft at Gateway is guilty of this every day with headlines that often don’t match the linked stories. Levin hates BOR and that’s okay, he hates Savage as well, but defending Bachmann here is silly. Bachmann too often opens her mouth and sticks her foot in it. Think vaccines.

I saw that ludicrous CNN harassment of Bachmann the other morning, when flipping through the channels. You mean O’Reilly actually turned that around into a criticism of Bachmann??? Good grief, no wonder I never watch FoxNews anymore. The whole network should just change its name from FoxNews to “Karl Rove’s Anus.”

Its the truth. We have some kind of royal presidency thing going on and it needs to stop. In fact the whole government spends money like the supply is endless.

They don't want anyone finding out that she's really on the ball with national security. She is on the permanent select committee on intelligence. She's pretty firm on the fiscal front as well.
