Here is video of Laura Ingraham doing “The O’Reilly Factor” tonight, where she delivered the opening “Talking Points.” Ingraham said with Santorum’s exit from the GOP race, the ball is now squarely in Mitt Romney’s court to “take the fight” to Barack Obama the way he did to Santorum and Gingrich. She said he can start by dropping the “Barack Obama is a nice guy, but. . .” routine.
Ingraham is right. Romney needs to drop that approach. I’ve noticed him doing that, just as John McCain did it in 2008. What Obama has done and is doing to America is not nice. Whether Obama is a “nice guy” or not is irrelevant. It is about what he’s doing to the country. He has shown in his ads that he will go after Obama. He has to match that intensity on the Campaign Trail as well. Telling the truth about Obama and his radical agenda is the quickest way for Romney to rally conservatives to his side and energize the base to help him win in November.
Here is video of Fox News’ Bret Baier last night on “The O’Reilly Factor” where he talked about his recent interview with Gov. Mitt Romney. Romney appeared to get irritated with Baier’s questions during the interview, and Baier confirms that is exactly the case. In fact, Baier said Romney twice told him after the interview that he thought it was “uncalled for” and that it was “overly aggressive.”
Could Mittens be starting to crack under the strain of not being able to get above the 18-25% level of support among Republicans? How does Romney think complaining like this is going to help his cause?
Here is video of a combative segment tonight on The O’Reilly Factor between guest host Laura Ingraham and Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel.
Rangel was on to respond to Rep. Allen West’s statement yesterday that the Democrat Party of today is a “21st Century Plantation” for the Black Community in America. But Ingraham and Rangel went back and forth the entire segment. Rangel got so expasperated at one point that he said, “Bill O’Reilly told me he had a secret weapon– I didn’t know it was just a pretty girl that they’d bring in!” Rangel later apologized: “I’m sorry I said you were attractive – I withdraw that completely.”
I think Charlie was very uncomfortable with the substance of what Allen West said, and the questions posed by Ingraham. He had no answers – and it showed.
Here is video of Andrew Breitbart on The O’Reilly Factor with guest host Juan Williams. They went back and forth about higher taxes – particularly on the wealthy. Breitbart said Obama’s class warfare “is a very dangerous strategy,” because it could lead to violence in “a bad economy going into a hot summer.”
Liberal Leslie Marshall said Obama is actually returning to what he ran on and what those on the Left wanted him to say and do when they elected him.
Breitbart said that the wealthy are already paying a “grotesque disproportionate amount of taxation in this country.”
On Donald Trump, Breitbart said, “Of course he’s not a conservative.” But he went on to say that the other GOP Candidates “who are languishing at 2% or 3%” even though they are “brand names in Washington” have to understand that “celebrity is everything in this country,” and if they don’t “learn to play the media” the Barack Obama did and the way Donald Trump is doing, we will wind up with “a celebrity candidate.”
