I just started watching the first part of BillO's series of interviews with Obama and I have to say that Bill attacks Obama with a mean spirited and nasty viciousness that he has never used against McCain, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the rest of the administration that he feels are in good standing. It was sickening to watch him interrupt Obama with a scowl on his face every time Barack tries to finish a point he was trying to make.
I thought it was a bad idea to go on with Bill because O'Reilly would never have respected the position that Obama holds as he runs for President. Instead of treating him like the Democratic nominee, he treats him like he has a vendetta against him. Search his interviews with Bush and McCain and see how he respects them. That respect was lacking...
It's fine to ask what the "Factor Free" considers tough questions, but O'Reilly tries to make guests that are threatening to him and Republicans look weak next to his huge ego and he's good at that. I thought Obama held his own against this Republican hypocrite, but make no mistake about it, BillO is very good at what he does---especially when he had Obama in his sights. I imagine in the next segment Bill will be bashing left wing bloggers and MoveOn furiously because he fears us also, but not as much as Obama. Barack represents the changing of the guard that we so desperately need if we're going to help our country. The new Jobless Report was staggering this morning (5 year high) and McCain will only<> increase these figures.
After the segment was over---he had a little nasty grin on his face as he berated Jane Hall when she tried to analyze Bill's question about if she bought the idea that Obama was a terror warrior. You see to Bill, Obama has to scream and jump up and down like Republicans do about terrorism instead of actually doing something about protecting America. O'Reilly's into the words instead of the actions. After he cut off Hall and tried to embarrass her, he moved over to winger Monica Crowley and asked is she thought Obama was a terror warrior and the Republican shill gave Bill the answer he wanted. She said "no " and O'Reilly laughing approved. This is the way he willproceed for the next few days. He'll applaud Obama for coming on and then do the best he can to help McCain and the tired and ineffective conservative movement.
The Republican Party has failed miserably on national security and McCain wants to use the same Bush policies in the extreme, but he talks tough so that's fine with Billy. Let's ask BO if Bush is a terror warrior and how did he do? He failed horribly and so has the Republican Party, but Bill needs to protect his own.
(There's plenty here to talk about in this clip. I'm exhausted from Convention week so get to it in the comment section because I missed a lot.)
