Bill O. really seems to be in denial about the reasons that voters threw out the Republicans this year. He thinks it is all about Iraq and even argued with someone from the ultra-conservative American Heritage Foundation over this.

O'Reilly appears to believe that Americans were not that upset with corruption, even though a number of exit polls showed that to be a top concern. Instead, he wanted to focus on Iraq and make that into the only real issue that affected voters on Tuesday. I agree Iraq was the biggest part in making people want change, but corruption, the economy and spending all played a very big part into the final outcome - a much bigger part than O'Reilly wants to admit.
