Have we officially entered bizzaro-world? Bill O' Reilly backs Public Option
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/09/17/bill-oreilly-b...

O'REILLY: But you know, I want that, Ms. Owcharenko. I want that. I want, not for personally for me, but for working Americans, to have a option, that if they don't like their health insurance, if it's too expensive, they can't afford it, if the government can cobble together a cheaper insurance policy that gives the same benefits, I see that as a plus for the folks.



Ain't that somethin'?

5. What's the catch?
There has to be something in it for Billo. Maybe a pile of money, maybe some real sex instead of phone sex, something. He can't be morally for a public option.

14. Billo's constantly positioning himself for ratings...
in a right mercenary fashion. A tedious bastard.

7. O'Reilly is always all over the place with his character. Am I the only one to have realized this?

9. my only thought, and i don't want to give to much credit to this clown...
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 06:51 PM by dionysus
before his political show wasn't he an entertainment reporter? he might be doing an act for the $$$ and he accidentally slipped out of character? that might be assuming too much...

13. Never will see his true side
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 10:27 PM by JMMendez1989
he actually is more independent than you would believe, I think Fox News shuts him up when his true side comes out. Still he does say a lot of stupid stuff, but I think he never shows his true side.

11. An indicator that the DNC will use this to run against them next year to gain more seats.

15. Nah. O'Reilly isn't known as a rep of the GOP, like Limpballs is. He's all mavericky.
I've heard him go against the grain before. It doesn't happen often, but I've heard it with my own ears.

18. Right. He's a douche, but he's not totally party-line
He was very outspoken against the Swiftboaters in 2004, for example.

12. He'll either deny it tomorrow or there will be some ridiculous qualification
he attaches to it to make his version of the public option virtually impotent.

16. Deep down he obviously doesn't believe the bullshit he spews on a daily basis,
and occasionally something like this slips to the surface.

20. This was my objective when I kept highlighting a public option could ignite the economy...
Edited on Fri Sep-18-09 03:41 AM by GivePeaceAchance
I imagine most of these folks invest, with positive indicators they must of figured President Obama is getting it right. I don't know if the WH read my posts, but was glad to see President Obama highlight this point more.
