Bill O'Reilly unloads on Alan Colmes: 'You are lying! You are lying!'
Daily Caller ^ | March 5, 2013 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 03/05/2013 6:23:36 PM PST by Rufus2007

n his Tuesday show, Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” host Bill O’Reilly unloaded on his show regular Alan Colmes for being unable and unwilling to name a specific program President Barack Obama would cut, other than the entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Colmes attempted to make his case, but the harder he tried, the more heated the discussion became:

COLMES: I disagree with what he is being said here. dollar. $2.50 in tax cuts for every dollar in tax increases. O’REILLY: That’s not specific. COLMES: Yes, he has. He has offered cuts in Medicare. He has offered cuts to entitlements. O’REILLY: That’s not specific. He has to say here are the programs that are going to go down. Here is how we are going to reform Medicare and Social Security. And the man refuses to do it.

This was ugly. I think Colmes was emotionally scarred.

Obama could cut the Head Start program and the only people who would notice would be the laid off union teachers and the moms who no longer had free government babysitting.

Nice stand-off.

Keep it coming Bill O’Reilly.

Seriously. Keep it coming. We need more talk like this.

Now that I have gotten over the emotional scarring of having been raised Irish, I quite enjoyed it.

If we did this even half the time the left spewed crap instead of cowering and hiding, we’d never lose again. Why is anyone afraid of these losers. Look at how weak Colmes was here. We’re running away from paper tigers when all we need do is tear them to shreds.

And can you imagine this asswipe’s wife is Monica Crowley’s sister!!! What’s wrong with her? I guess it’s like the Baldwin brothers. The only person I can think of that is more smarmy than Alan is that worthless POS Juan Hernandez, the guy who headded up Juan McLame’s “Hispanic Outreach” program when he ran against FUBO.

BOR is known for having a hot temper and I don't think this was an act. He's given O’Slacker a lot of slack and he just may be reaching a point where he can't in good conscience do it anymore.

Which just might cost BOR his job if he keeps doing it.

Actually Colmes is right. Obama has yammered in the past about reforming Medicare.

But O'Reilly is right that Obama NEVER backs up his talk with specific cuts. Never.

Preach it. 100% correct. This is so damn frustrating. We need more Mark Levins. (He's on Hannity on Thursday night, BTW).

When Dip$hit Colmes came on and started his BS I changed channels before O’Reilly launched on him.

For the life of me, I don’t understand why Bill lets that toad on his show.

At the end he asked her too. It looked liked Jay Walking. BOR discovered that his “guests” are not doing their homework prior to the show and just use talking points.

I’m unable to speak for any state other than California, but Head Start “Teachers” here are NOT a part of any school district, and are not members of the teacher’s union.

That's because they're babysitters!

(Of course that's what most teachers actually are)

Two of my children received head-start services. The head-start teacher was certainly NOT a babysitter.

Problem is, both Coombs and O’Reilly seemed ignorant of the fact that the White House Press Kid and others in the administration have regularly claimed that Obama has already made cuts of over two trillion dollars in federal spending. To get there they will, on occasion, admit that they’ve cut 700 billion out of Medicare (although they don’t admit that those same funds were counted to help pay for Obamacare to keep it’s total new spending under a trillion in the next ten years). The rest of the claimed cuts come from a trillion or so they say will not be spent in fighting the Iraq and Afganistan wars - which they’re winding down anyway (I similarly save a half million in my own finances each year by planning to build a new house, then cancelling the plans). That Coombs didn’t throw these figures out when O’Reilly was ranting at him indicates he somehow hasn’t kept up with the ‘rat talking points or, more likely, even he is too embarrassed to try to peddle such snake oil......

Child prodigies are few and far between, regardless of their race, creed, or nationality. The head-start teacher who worked with my children, and my wife and I, on school readiness skills did an excellent job, not only with my children, but with helping my wife and I to help our children get ready for entering school. Two of our children are stay-at-home mothers, The other two are gainfully employed, one in the U.S. Army as a combat solder (tagline), and the other works in the healthcare field, working towards becoming an RN. While non of my children will ever become famous, they are doing well. Thanks for your concerns.

Isn't this the shell game the Dems have been playing, and the Repubs have ignored?
Taking 500-billion from medicare and transferring it to Obamacare isn't a cut in spending.

I think Orly gets it but he does a bad job of simplifying it for the uninformed.

Not really. Japanese kids are at least 100% better educated than American kids.

Some time back, there was an international scholastic testing conflab in Europe, they sent the best and brightest from NJ to represent the USA. Now the big joke in Belgium is how stupid Americans are.

Two of our children are stay-at-home mothers, The other two are gainfully employed, one in the U.S. Army as a combat solder (tagline), and the other works in the healthcare field, working towards becoming an RN. While non of my children will ever become famous, they are doing well.

I'd attribute that to your parenting skills, not the worthless, money-grubbing "education" system.

I’ve never understood why people attempt to compare the U.S. system of education, where every child is expected to attend formal schooling from age 6 to age 18, to school systems in other countries, where only those deemed capable of succeeding attend formal education. Apples vs oranges.

Most other nations blow our "education" systems out of the water.

We have to import engineers, doctors and scientists because there is very little domestic feedstock.

>>The three-yearly OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) report, which compares the knowledge and skills of 15-year-olds in 70 countries around the world, ranked the United States 14th out of 34 OECD countries for reading skills, 17th for science and a below-average 25th for mathematics.<<

>>The United States has also fallen behind in the percentage of 15-year-olds who are enrolled in school, ranking third from bottom of the OECD countries, above only Mexico and Turkey.

Only eight OECD countries have a lower high school graduation rate than the United States<<

Read it and weep

Again, you are comparing two completely different approaches to education. When the education system doesn’t have to water down the education to the lowest denomination, then they are free to allow the best and brightest to excel. In the U.S. we are made to educate ALL Children, regardless of ability; regardless of intellectual or social development; regardless of physical or mental disabilities! If the U.S. stopped providing for compulsory education for all children age 6 to 18, and only focused on those who demonstrate aptitude, you would then be able to compare our system to these other countries. Again, you are comparing apples to oranges.
