Bill O’Reilly has former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on his show to discuss the various scandals that have plagued Obama’s administration, and things go badly for Richardson. Watch him stammer as he attempts to defend what he clearly knows is indefensible.

    Once in awhile, this “simple man”, insecure as all hell (could you imagine Brett Bair after an interview requesting a national pole; this is Bill constantly needing to know if he’s good and, even if he’s liked?). But, on this occasion Billy O’ really is good.
    After he sees’s Richardson is sticking cold-hard with Obama, he clearly knows what the former gov does not: Richardson is in the opening seconds of round one and Bill’s got him on the ropes with a TKO quickly to follow.

      bobhcox79 I am in agreement with your assessment of O’Reilly. He came through like he should on this one.

      1. rofomoreno bobhcox79Ya gotta figure that these scandals are serious enough that even the insecure and equivocating cannot help but take them seriously. IOW, O’Reilly’s response and stance really are the bare minimum that any/all of us should have.

        1. bobhcox79 says:

          Except for that big word, “equivocating” which will give you five points for- what the fuck are you talking about @Rofomoreno?

        2. bobhcox79 Watch your mouth, please.

          The scandals are bad. Really bad. So bad that all of us should be really angry and want justice (no matter what political persuasion). I like O’Reilly’s strength here, but it’s also the bare minimum indignation that any of us should have under the circumstances.

        3. rofomoreno says:

          bobhcox79 “equivocating” was not my word, but it is entirely accurate as to what sustains the Left. And for the purpose of clarity, what specifically in my comment are you not clear about?

        4. bobhcox79 says:

          First and foremost I apologize for the language.
          The left is done such a wonderful job demonizing everyone and everything they find contentious.
          Why do conservatives is at least think about what is their next move?”
          Another thing that everyone needs to realize is, when someone on the right is being called a racist homophobe , Woman hater etc.- understand that, if you believe in the principal and integrity of that person , aren’t you too, in effect, being called this as well?

        5. bobhcox79 Re: the language—thanks :-)

          The left demonizes as a way of silencing. They hate arguing actual principles and results because they lose. They believe in the righteousness of their utopian project, and by extension believe that anyone who stands in their way must, by definition, be bad and filled with bad motives. So it’s easy for them to call names. In other countries, where they have gained more power, they have done far worse than call names.

        6. rofomoreno says:

          bobhcox79 So true. The Left has been the expert in in every aspect of the Alinsky playbook. But as the deceit is finally becoming more and more obvious to greater numbers of formerly low informed and uninformed, I sense a desperation in the media that has never been seen’s success has been realized only by the
          As a Right leaning Latino, I can’t tell you how much it moves me to rebellion with a cause to have to witness Leftists of both parties, and worse, compromising Repubs of timidity who willfully reinforce the reckless innuendo of racism and implied bigotry against Anglos. It really repulses me that Americans would stand by and watch other Americans flog fellow Americans for the sake of silencing counter opinions.
          If the Left can prosper so abundantly in the high cost of deceit, I see no reason that the Right cannot overcome and overwhelm by the free use of truth.

          “If the Left can prosper so abundantly in the high cost of deceit, I
          see no reason that the Right cannot overcome and overwhelm by the free
          use of truth. ”

          Rofo, do you realize how quotable that is?

        8. rofomoreno says:

          WesternFreePress rofomorenobobhcox79 Actually, I did not realize. It was my last posted comment for the late night. And I think by that time I was likely at the threshold of delirium via sleep deprivation. Liberalism does have that affect on their dissenters.

          Thank you so much for pointing it out. I will move immediately to make use it to its full potential.

    Embarrassing. Disgusting. Shameful. Indefensible.

    This simple and very transparent example of what becomes of an adult who is under the complete spell and influence of stupidity, is the consequence of selling his own soul, as well as years of attempting, and in many cases succeeding, to sell the souls of his fellow countrymen (specifically, much of the American Latino community) to the ideology of Liberalism and/or Progressivism. 
    It is one of the clearest example I’ve seen yet of the best offensive and most cost effective strategy for Republicans (or persons of any affiliation) of Right leaning restlessness. Advance a question deeply rooted in truth and let it remain a thorn unrelenting upon the foundation of that truth. Use it to its intended fullness. That being to the degree that it places those practitioners in leadership of deceit on full display as they go about on their inevitable parade of stupidity (yes, it has been only a matter of time).     

    Take this example and compare the immeasurable contrast of extremes – the beautiful story herein at WFP of Alma Deutscher, an 8 year old beaming in the purity of innocence, without hesitation, eager to address questions from an adult with answers which she knows to be of truth.

    1. rofomoreno I like that comparison, Rofo.

      Another area where I think it is time for the right to start putting in thorns and leaving them there is on the subject of “compassion” and who “cares” for the poor, the downtrodden, etc. The left has been accusing us of being uncaring monsters for the last century, and yet, over the last century, we have accumulated mounds of data that shown, beyond a shadow of intelligent doubt, that THEIR policies hurt the poor. Why not ask the question, If they are so compassionate, why do they keep doing what they’re doing to poor people? Leave THAT thorn in for a while.
