Economic illiterate and degenerate blowhard Bill O’Reilly went ballistic on his show the other night, screaming at liberal Fox News whipping boy Alan Colmes and shouting “bull-blank.” (Utterly ridiculous, bull-blank? Seriously?)
O’Reilly called Colmes a “liar” because he said that Colmes couldn’t name one program that has seen a reduction in spending even though Colmes repeatedly stated, Medicare, which saw a $10 billion dollar reduction in FY 2012 vs FY 2011. In addition, Medicaid was down by $23.7 billion, NASA down by $1 billion, Federal salaries (not a program, but still a target of fiscal conservative ire) down by almost $3 billion and there’s more. The numbers are there.
While O’Reilly did the typical bully job on meek Colmes, Colmes deserved it for doing the usual liberal/progressive thing of not having any facts to back up his arguments. The progressive leadership (of which Colmes is a part due to his media presence) is a BIG part of the reason why the movement is not going anywhere. It is easily countered or destroyed by the "bull-blank" conservative dogma.
