On the April 15th, 2010 broadcast of the OReilly Factor, you played a little too fast and loose with the truth when discussing the case of Lt. Col Terry Lakin. Lakin, whom we both recall refused orders to deploy to Afghanistan, cited lingering doubts over the constitutionality of Barack Obamas presidency, and by extension, the legality of his orders to deploy.
Before we get started, a word of advice: You should really skip the Humble Correspondent bit, your ego is enormous and dwarfed only by Obamas.
Your entire segment on Lakin was so laden with eye-rolls, snarky facial expressions and verbal sanctimony, your Body Language Expert, Tonya Reiman would have a field day dissecting it.
My principal beef with you is your oft-repeated claim that you single-handedly debunked the alleged myth that Barack Obama was not born in the United States by digging up two public notices in Hawaii papers announcing the August, 1961 birth of little Barry and that these notices prove beyond doubt that Obama was born in the United States.
You opined that Obamas parents would have had to fake Barack Obamas birth, cuz were gonna know hes gonna be president and that Newspapers only print birth announcements when you call them and tell them Hey, your babys born. Well, perhaps next time you get the urge to be so sanctimonious on air, you might check your facts first, for those statements expose your second-grade reasoning and feeble command of this issue.
Contrary to the narrow way in which youve framed this debate, there is not one, but several theories percolating about Barack Obamas citizenship, or lack thereof, ranging from his being born in Kenya to his being born in the US to parents who were ineligible to confer natural-born status upon him...

The body-language bit is an annoying waste of time. It just gives them a license to speculate on what’s in the mind of their subject.
O’Reilly, IMO, plays both sides for his own advancement. I turn him off and refuse to watch. Bill is consumed with trying to figure out if the Tea Party Movement can stay angry through November. Americans don’t retreat from a fight that will determine their freedom.
A soldier and a patriot fighting for our freedom and to rid us of traitors. Please pass to your address list and ask them to forward the video to theirs.
Hmmm. Top link takes me back to the FR summary posting. The bottom link doesn’t work.
"F---ING THING SUCKS!!!!"
“OReilly, IMO, plays both sides for his own advancement. “
O’Reilly is the number 1 ratings whore in the history of media. Why any FReeper watches this gasbag is beyond me.
I saw that on O'Reilly. Bill's got to be one of the most overpaid morons on the tube. Wonder why I had to show a notarized BC to DMV and the Court to get married, and I couldn't just bring a clipping from the local paper.
How is West doing?
BOR used to do the same thing with guests who didn't buy into the global warming propaganda. In fact, he was openly hostile to GW skeptics. But after "Climategate" and the increasing number of scientist-skeptics speaking their mind BOR changed his tune and became somewhat of a skeptic himself. ...but never acknowledged the change of position. His bloated ego wouldn't allow it.
Great post I watched him that night and you’re spot on.
Does anyone know what his demo actually is? Ted Baxter is an embarassment—his knowledge is painfully superficial. Who are these people who watch him?
I can barely take it anymore, but I end up tuning in when he is having decent guests, Rove, Coulter, et al.
I quit watching him around 8 years ago.
Wow! I would say that is an amazingly accurate assessment!
