Wait...did I wake up in a parallel universe? Bill O'Reilly defends President Obama's pressure on BP to set up an escrow fund.


Right Now - Mark Levin attacks 'phony, populist idiot' O'Reilly over BP fund
Mark Levin attacks 'phony, populist idiot' O'Reilly over BP fund


Twice last week, Bill O'Reilly booked conservative Republican stars on his show -- Sarah Palin and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) -- and came at them from the unexpected stance of defending President Obama. With Palin, he defended Obama's handling of the BP spill. With Bachmann, he disagreed with her criticism of how the BP escrow fund was set-up.

All of that sparked an outraged rant from radio host Mark Levin, which the Right Scoop has captured and put online. In it, Levin makes the case that a lot of conservatives who don't have to worry about re-election are making -- that, yes, the president "shook down" BP, and that O'Reilly is a "phony, populist idiot" for thinking otherwise.

So the one time when O'Reilly doesn't bow down to the conservatives and big business you want to kick him to the curb?

the above comment proves you dont know much about OReily.

in deed Bill does have some things in common with conservatives but he is no "orthodox" fellow. He has some things in common with cons and some with libs and while he will attack a president on one hand, he will defend the guy where he agrees.

he has always done this.

He is not as far to the right as Beck or Hannity, but O'Reilly is clearly a conservative.

Also apparently still has a tiny piece of his brain that still thinks rational unlike the other two.

O'Reilly is just trying to take even more of Oberfugle's dwindled audience.

I don't think I would go quite that far, did you hear him or are you taking it from a few excerpts you are reading? He did not really defend the handling of it, he simply has said, Obama could not do anything about the spill. He did criticize the time Obama took to start taking action. If you really believe O'Rielly was defending him, then I guess you will have to admit FOX isn't all one sided. but basically he did defend Obama.
