        Those were the two times when Bill actually said something wrong!  Well, add another time when he took up for homosexuality.
        Hey, y'all shoulda been watching Fox earlier.  Bill's more "balanced" than you might've thought (actually UNbalanced! lol. His comparison of One Million Moms to the McCarthy issue was blatantly Leftist). Also Megan Fox...maybe the Left can recruit her, because she holds a very liberal view of homosexual "rights".
        Guess what---Glenn Beck on his radio show took up for Ellen Degeneres in the issue this thread is about too!
        My oh my!  Maybe it won't be long before Fox really DOES become "Faux" News.  In which case, they'll be just as bad as CNN and the other station that allows Rachel Madcow to insult all things conservative.

          It's too late to edit my post, so I'm replying to it to correct something.
          I meant Megyn Kelly, who is on Fox News.  Not Megan Fox.

              I actually didn't know who she was until I googled her name;  I had just heard the name mentioned somewhere before.
              I bet you would, Greek One!
              How are you today?  I'm rather bored; maybe that's how I remembered I had gotten the two "Megan/Megyns" mixed up....

                Hello Brenda

                I recently gave birth to my second child (ok.. i was in the room at least), so I am a bit tired.....

                but thanks to your idea of Googling Megan Fox, I am feeling quite invigorated at the moment.

                  Congratulations on the birth of the baby!  (If that's true.  One never knows with you, Greek One; you're such a jokester).

                  Mostly my congrats to your wife of course----she probably did all the work; or most of it. smile

                    yup... baby number 2  of 2... and I am done with procreating...

                    the process is fine, but the results 9 months later are tiring let me tell ya!

    Bill is kind of the 'extremist' on Fox. I can't stand to watch him for more than a few minutes-- even though I agree with him many times. This time he was making a lot of sense.... and the 'million moms' apparently only have 40,000 followers on some social page.

      I'm sorry but the extremist on fox is by far sean hannity at least o'reilly  is able to speak several sentences at the time without trashing obama, he's able to talk about other issues, and sometimes even makes sense.

        Sorry-- I wasn't clear... I meant from the Fox perspective. O'Reilly, though annoying, takes a little different view than many of their commentators.

    I never watch Fox, but listened to the video. Hurray for him. As far as the woman speaking, blah, blah, blah...

    Thrashing the president is standard conservative 'rightwinger' fare. It is as if whatever problems, economic or otherwise, we are currently experiencing  would not have occured if only we had followed the sage council of Three Stooges of the rabid right, O'Reilly, Limbaugh and Hannity (Guess who plays Moe?). Laissez faire? Great, let the economy right itself right over the nearest precipice.

      Bill isn't part of the "rabid right." He's much more fair and sane than Limbaugh, Beck, and Hannity. I've seen him take up for Obama numerous times, and Hillary said she was treated better on Bill's show than on any other. Sure, he's right-leaning, but he's not rabid. Bill also does a lot of charity work. One thing I don't like about him, however, is his arrogance.

        This is true, ok, I will replace O'Reilly with Beck. Beck is certainly more than qualified as a stand in.....

        I agree. O'Reilly is by far not the worst among the right-wing commentators. He does speak on behalf of the very elderly (I think the average age of one of his viewers is about 80), who tend to be conservative, but not as right-wing as the evangelical hypocrites, obsessive partisans, and others that gravitate towards Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh, and a handful of others.

            Well, I had to research your reference, was wondering what you two were referring to.
            Apparently, the accusations behind the lawsuit were never proven.  Incidentally, in reading the lawsuit, it says the plaintiff also had a problem of harrassment from her boss at CNN.  Plus, O'Reilly (according to Wikipedia) had first begun a lawsuit against the woman, saying she had tried to get more money from him than was agreed upon;  and then she filed the sexual harrassment lawsuit against him.  So, it's impossible for me to (or anyone) to accuse O'Reilly when we do not know the facts at all.

                Indeed we all can.  I prefer to believe based on facts.  But sometimes there's plenty of smoke to indicate a fire.  There's much more smoke in Obama's case than there is in O'Reilly's case.

            By the way, unlike O'Reilly who's accused of lusting after the opposite sex, I hear Barak Obama had a hot time with a man in the back of a limo.  Reckon there's any credence to that accusation?

    In this case, Bill was uncharacteristically even handed. I agree his position totally with the lady against Ellen who had a completely illogical argument, virtually indefensible.

    If Bill keeps this up, I might be able to coax him to come out from the "Dark Side" and turn to the Good!

    Haha wow.  He finally says something intelligent.  It's too bad just the other day he was attacking the 9th circuit court of appeals for striking down prop 8.  But kudos to him for the occasional glimpses of rationality seeping through the ever increasing delusion at faux news.
