On Tuesday, we wondered if Bill O'Reilly would come out in support of President Obama's proposed freeze on discretionary spending.
For months, O'Reilly had been saying it's important "to be fair to
Barack Obama." Tamping down domestic spending seemed right up his alley. So what
happened? Last night, O'Reilly praised the president and even threw in a barb at
Obama's "Kool-Aid drinking" conservative critics:
Last night, [Obama] announced he wants to freeze discretionary spending for three years. That, of course, is a good thing. Any restraint on government spending will help the economy...
Fervent right-wingers simply don't like President Obama. So whatever he does will be criticized in those precincts. "Talking Points" rejects all Kool-Aid drinking and wants the best for the country. If the president gets away from liberal tendencies, it can only make America stronger.
