What happened to O'Reilly? Is he for real?
OíReilly: We Want Obama to Succeed
Doesn't he realize that if Obama succeeds then that means the economy has stabilized? Then where would we be? In some kind of liberal hellscape!!Do you want Obama to fail?
No. We want him to succeed. We want to persuade him that perhaps some of his policies are not going to help him succeed.
What about all this talk of socialism? Isnít that a little premature, since this bailout was started by the Bush administration?
Iíve never bought into the fact that Barack Obama is a socialist. I think heís a classic liberal that believes that big government can solve the problems of society, and he wants to redistribute income. I donít think heís a socialist. I donít think he wants to seize peopleís property. But I do think heís a classic committed liberal.
Do you think the socialist argument being advanced by the right-wing pundits is effective?
It raises questions about how far the government is going to be able to go in its pursuit of social engineering. So I think itís worthy in that regard. Youíre reminding people that there is a difference between the United States and Sweden. To call these people Communists and socialists, thatís as nutty as the far left calling people fascists and all of that. Itís the same kind of craziness.
Not a socialist or Communist??
Look, Bill, just because you went to the JFK School of Government at Harvard and got a masters in Public Administration, doesn't mean you can tell us we don't know what those words actually mean. We know what they mean. They mean what Sean Hannity says they mean!!
