Apparently, the opening segment of The O'Reilly Factor last night, Obama Leads With Women Voters, was just a little too pro-Obama. Because in the second segment, guest host Juan Williams asked both his guests – Democrat Leslie Marshall and conservative talk show host Janine Turner – to advise Romney how to win women back. When Turner failed to answer the question adequately, Williams gave her a do over. Instead of an opinion show, which is what the O’Reilly Factor show is supposed to be, we got “hypothetical” advocacy. From a liberal guest host, no less.
“I know you saw that last segment,” Williams said, starting with Turner. “I want to ask you, what does Mitt Romney have to do, what can he do to regain favor among female voters – especially female voters under 50?”
Turner started out talking about how Romney should attack President Obama and “ObamaCare.” But as she veered into the weeds of ObamaCare, Williams steered her back to advising Romney. “But you were gonna tell me, remember Janine? You were gonna tell me what Mitt Romney’s going to say to these young women. I didn’t find that persuasive. So try it again. I give you a do over.”
Can you think of any discussions on Fox centered on advice for President Obama to get re-elected? And where the pro-Obama guest would get a do over to be more persuasive?
By the way, as Marshall pointed out that Obama has gained a lot of support from women in recent weeks, Williams interrupted to say, “I know that. What I’m trying to do is, how can Mitt Romney fix it? And I’m wondering, what about appointing a Sarah Palin type to be his Vice President?”
- And Iâm wondering, what about appointing a Sarah Palin type to be his Vice President?â -
Get Sarah – AGAIN!!!!!!!
Let me rephrase that.
Tax cuts AFTER a vaginal probe.
Sarah Palin Type
- out of wedlock teenage daughter pregnancy
- dump child bride’s hubby
- quit any responsible office asap
- word-salad blathering
- lie & smear as SOP
- ask daddy if a rifle “kicks”
- reality nature tour from inside an SUV
- blame media for botched interviews
- welcome your state’s subsidies and attack handouts
- natural-born ignoramus spouting moral platitudes
- put hard-workin’ Americans under the umbrella of corporate-bailout job-creationism
- promote witch-hunting preachers
- accept phone calls from French PM
- wink when you’re bankrupt for ideas
- incite hate & violence
- be the Best Media Whore you can
Did I miss much?
@mlp: Well, it was Juan W. who was guest-hosting, so, I doubt it — but fear of Muslims getting on planes likely entered the conversation at some point . . .
Interesting strategy: Mittens — the pioneer of gov’t-run health care in Massachusetts — should attack the President on . . . gov’t-run health care.
Sounds like a winner, Jan. You gotta love it whenever Fox brings in one of the “librul Hollywood elite” to give advice on political strategy . . .

Yeah, Juan — that worked so WELL in 2008 . . .
