Bill O’Reilly seems to think that the way to persuade American voters to elect Republicans is to smear anyone who leans Democratic
In his Talking Points commentary last night, O’Reilly discussed a Politico poll that O’Reilly said found that “64 percent say things in the United States feel like they are out of control right now; 36 percent are confident that the country can meet its challenges.” And yet, the poll also found that “if the election for the House and Senate were held today,” 41 percent said they would vote for the Democratic candidate, 36 percent for the Republican and 23 percent don’t know.
“If a whopping 64 percent of Americans think the country is out of control under the Obama administration, why would anyone vote for a Democratic candidate?” O’Reilly wondered.
His conclusion had nothing to do with Americans blaming Republicans for any of the dysfunction. No, in shades of his 2012 electoral sour grapes about voters “wanting stuff,” O’Reilly concluded Democrats have duped Americans into putting freeloading above patriotism. Or something:
O’REILLY: The answer is emotion. Democrats have been very successful in convincing some voters that the Republican Party favors the rich and is anti-woman. The Republican Party has not been able to put forth a leader to refute those allegations effectively.
Thus in every poll American women continue to favor Democrats no matter what happens to the nation. What is certainly true is that Democratic Party and President Obama have not been successful in making America a stronger country. We’re much weaker than we were six years ago.
So if you are voting for the country then you would be less likely to support the Democrats. But if you are voting just for yourself, and what you can get from the government the option the Democrats provide - continued entitlements - is attractive.
That’s right, it’s out of selfless patriotism that Republicans have blocked minimum wage increases, student loan reforms and long-term unemployment benefits at the same time that candidates like Mitt Romney characterize Americans using social safety nets as “takers” who avoid personal responsibility. And although Americans previously rejected that rhetoric, O’Reilly seems to think that doubling down on it will change their minds.
Then, as part of his “proof” that Democrats don’t put their country first, O’Reilly did some dishonest politicizing about Ebola:
O'REILLY: Now part of the reason the USA is in trouble is that President Obama puts ideology over tough practical solutions. Ebola is a good example. Overwhelmingly, Americans want a travel ban imposed on the countries where the Ebola epidemic is raging but the President dissents. …Well with all due respect those arguments are very weak.
… A travel ban to America is certainly appropriate - at least until American health officials get organized to contain any Ebola intrusion. But the President continues to say no. That’s just one of many examples of ideology trumping practical solutions to vexing problems.
While Bill O’Reilly has no medical credentials whatsoever, real doctors such as infectious disease specialist Michael Osterholm, who appeared on Fox News Sunday last weekend and Republican Bill Frist, a physician and the former Senate Majority Leader, oppose a travel ban as impractical and counter-productive.
O’Reilly concluded, “Summing up, we are living in a very dangerous, complicated world and we need problem solvers not ideologues in office.”
The same should be said of our cable news hosts.
Watch O'Reilly insult Americans below.
Most Democrats are just self centered voters who hate America and want to “get my check.” Or as their hero Commy Gov. Huey Long, LA once famously said; “A chicken in every pot.” But for those of you who get their opinions from left wing media such as; Family Guy, American Dad, Comedy Central fake news shows, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, PBS, Hollywood, popular culture actors who pretend for a living, just to name a few, here’s who you are really voting with:
If you vote democrat, you vote with: ALL people who consider themselves communist & socialist and anti-American. They are welcome in the party. Democrats are the anti-free market party, the party that HATES you if you believe in God, especially a Christian and they believe a scientist has never been wrong in human history, but you’re an idiot for having faith & believing there’s still wonder in the world, and some things are inexplicable (who’s open minded?). You vote against having a strong & powerful military, because Democrats HATE, absolutely HATE the military. You vote with the party who gives aid & comfort to our enemies while our troops are in harms way (except if there’s a Democrat doing the killing). You vote with the party who Castro, Chavez, Putin, Stalin, Mao, Hitler (who was a Socialist, why do you think the left worships VW’s so much, check the facts on who commissioned those to be built), N. Korea, Iran, terrorists and enemies of the US are rooting for you to vote for Democrats. Think about this. The enemies of America would vote Democrat if they could! Do you really think our enemies would want a strong America? of course not, that’s why Castro, Chavez and Putin literally endorsed Obama in the election. You vote for the Anti-Israel party, You vote with the party that welcomes the hate America crowd, you vote with & agree with all slackers, all welfare fraud types, entire inner cities who’ve been destroyed by Dem policies for over 60 years, all Felons, fraudulent voters, illegal aliens who apply destructive pressure to America’s infrastructure & economy, dead people, homeless who are picked up and paid sometimes with booze to vote, gang members, most teenagers & college age students with no life experience, and the corrupt unions & members who’ve destroyed many industries in this country with their corrupt, over reaching greed. Democrats want to legislate morality, they are anti-free speech if you disagree with them, they will have you fired and publicly destroyed if you say something they don’t agree with. They made cigarettes illegal in bars – supported raising taxes on cigarettes (smoking is idiotic, but this should be your choice), and this is only the beginning, they are working on taking away certain foods, trans fat (this is the legislate their morality crowd), (because the ends justifies the means). Ironically, raising taxes on cigarettes by Democrats was to make people cut down or stop buying cigarettes, right? Well then, aren’t they admitting that higher taxes suppress commerce simply by applying that tactic? Hmmmm? It’s called critical thinking…
Believe it or not, (Check this by just listening to Bernie Sanders) this is the party who wants to take away the free market (Capitalism) They are all anti-capitalists, that’s what Socialism/Communism is! They want the government to control what choices you have in products you buy, where you work, etc… Uh, competition is why we have such quality technology at an affordable price. But this crowd WILL NOT SAY THIS! Look it up for yourself!
The problem with Socialism (Democrat policies) is that one day you run out of other people’s money. No country has EVER taxed its way to prosperity…
Do an honest check and see for yourself. They’re going to go to the old faithful tactic of calling anyone who disagrees with them, racist, homophobic, right wing nut, all the above… Just check all other party’s platform and what they all stand for. Check for yourself… Look at who speaks at their conventions. Don’t believe me? I beg you to do your homework, something a Democrat does not want you to do…
Remember: All they have is name calling, that’s how they respond to everything and that’s how they’ll respond to this post.. No party is perfect and I am not endorsing any party here. But ask yourself, is this what you agree with? if so, then I respect your right, but my guess is most Democrats have no clue what they are voting for…
Stay informed America!
It may explain why there was an explosion of what sure sounded like panic on the Fox programs I saw this evening. Hannity was a pure panic-fest, much more hysterical sliming of Obama and Democrats than even Fox usually indulges in non-stop for half an hour or so. (His “all-star” guest line-up included Mark Levin, Mark Steyn, Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin and Dana Loesch. Yikes.)
I thought to myself, “What do they know that I don’t know?” If they were confident of winning, they wouldn’t feel the need to do that. This was just going all out to terrify and energize their GOP-voting audience as vehemently as possible.
I’m feeling slightly more optimistic than I was this afternoon…
Naaahh! Just kidding!!
He’ll beg for more money with his last gasp of breath …
I am sending you a spinning top Bile “sit on it”.
He actually has a valid point. The “we” he’s referring to is the RepubliBagger party. They’ve never been regarded as unfavorably as they current are.
Seriously, that was the last straw for a lot of fence sitters, and it’s not like Walker could have afforded the hit.
Nice to see this is their 2014 home stretch strategy.
