O’REILLY: ‘DON’T BASH OBAMA’
“There are two kinds of political attacks,” O’Reilly said. “The personal, meant to diminish the human being and criticism of policy, meant to persuade people, the person in power is doing a bad job. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with policy criticism or satire. That’s a hallmark of America. But the personal stuff is cheap. And we’re seeing more and more of it…. “
There is no question that President Obama is having some big problems,” he continued. “All the polls show that. So is he a legitimate political target. But if CPAC makes a weekend out of bashing Obama, it will be making a big mistake.”
O’Reilly suggested attendees use their energy to focus on policy solutions instead. Hmmm…what a novel idea.
