O'Reilly Compares McCain's Negative Campaigning To Obama Attending DailyKos Convention

Reported by Deborah - October 13, 2008 -

O'Reilly's TPM tonight, 10/13, absolved John McCain completely for his negative campaigning that has incited ugly, dangerous, racist behavior at McCain and Palin's rallies. BOR dismissed it like it was no big deal and proceeded to attack Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) for his comment that McCain and Palin are "sewing the seeds of hatred and division" and chided Lewis for not condemning Obama for going to the DailyKos convention. At this point the TPM turned into an attack on Obama and McCain was in the clear.

This is what John Lewis said that has the McCain camp demanding an apology from Obama.

"During another period, in the not too distant past, there was a governor of the state of Alabama named George Wallace who also became a presidential candidate. George Wallace never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights. Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed on Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama,"

O'Reilly showed the clip of McCain trying to backtrack on Friday when he discovered the dirty campaigning was bringing him down . Acting like McCain had always been that honorable, BillO must have forgotten his speculation on The Factor about the value of Sarah Palin going negative.

O'Reilly neglected to show any clips of the frenzy whipped up at the recent McCain/Palin rallies especially the one showing a man with a monkey doll called Hussein with an Obama bumper sticker bandana.

Remember the Saddleback Forum when McCain pretended he was in the "cone of silence" when actually he was in a limo with access to the questions asked of Obama first. After McCain joked that he was trying to listen through the wall which was a blatant lie, Warren asked him to name his "three wise men" and McCain named John Lewis.
