Bill O'Reilly melts down over Romney's election loss in his new Talking Points Memo because he can't come to grips with the fact that America has rejected conservatism yet again. He has to do a 'Dick Morris' and make up lies to validate his argument.
O'Reilly refers to Dennis Miller's idiotic remarks about how America has changed forever from people that he is comfortable with. WTF? Racist much?
MILLER: Do I think I'll ever see it go back in my lifetime to the other way? No, I don't. I think this is it. Do I think it's the America that I saw from 18 to 58? No, I don't. Is that the end of the world? No. It's not like I was in the shower this morning and found a lump in my armpit. That's always my fallback position. I've got a great life. But I'm just saying it is not the America I've grown comfortable with.
BillO rejected this on the premise that white America can reclaim the USA by loudly attacking SP's (liberals, aka secular progressives). You see, Mitt Romney lost the election because he wasn't loud enough on all the social issues that O'Reilly cares about. No, really -- just scream baby killer more often and Mittens would have won. Is traditional America gone for good?
So it's more about Romney's failure to build on McCain's vote than Obama doing anything. A stronger candidate would have defeated the President. Mr. Obama won the woman vote, blacks and Asians. But it was the Hispanic vote that really nailed Romney; 71 percent of Latinos voted for the President. And that was the difference in Florida, Virginia, Colorado and Nevada. Other states were impacted as well.
Romney took white males and Independents by significant margins. But when you bunch it all up together, when you bunch it up, it was an entitlement vote this year. American families earning less than $30,000 a year broke big for the President; 62 percent to 35 percent. So it's clear that left-wing ideology did not win the day for Barack Obama, big spending on federal programs did.
That's the key. Because many in the media would have us believe that liberal ideology was confirmed by this election. It was not. However... however, secularism is certainly eroding traditional power. No question about it. Those Americans who attend religious services at least once a week voted for Romney 59-39, the problem is church going is on the decline in this country.
Here's an example. Despite the President's controversial insistence that some Catholic entities provide birth control and after pills, Catholics supported Obama 50 percent to 48 percent down from 2008 but still a surprise to some.
The fact that Catholics voted for Obama destroys BillO's arguments and you know that's eating him up since he's a Catholic too. Now come BillO's Big Three talking points about the election results.
By the way, Mitt Romney didn't even try to marginalize secularism. He basically ignored it. A mistake because President Obama is the poster guy for the secular progressive movement. The key question going forward is the SP Movement good for Americans no matter what their ethnicity or economic condition and the answer is no.
Three vivid examples. Secular progressives champion a do-your-own-thing philosophy. No judgments about personal behavior are allowed in that arena. The public school system has adopted that philosophy. And that's now wreaking havoc on American society.
Isn't conservative philosophy all about being allowed the freedom from government to do your own thing? How times have changed, but BillO's premise about public schools is ridiculous. What does that even mean? Does he mean that kids can do homework and take tests if they feel like it?
