Bill O’Reilly Apologizes For Screaming At Alan Colmes, Then Screams At Kristen Powers [Video]

bill-oreilly Killing Lincoln sets NatGeo ratings record

Bil O’Reilly and Alan Colmes got into a bit of a shouting match on Wednesday night.

The Fox News host and the radio talk show host were talking, shortly before they were screaming, about President Obama’s spending cuts. O’Reilly argued that the President has not made any “specific” proposals about spending cuts. When Colmes countered saying that the President wanted to make cuts to entitlement programs and Medicare, O’Reilly accused him of lying.

O’Reilly apologized for the outburst today, although he did say that he was glad that the incident occurred. The Fox News host said that his outburst brought attention to the issue.

O’Reilly said: “Lots of folks talking about my shootout with Alan Colmes last night where I asked him what specific budget cuts President Obama has proposed. Colmes hemmed and hawed saying the President is promising to cut Medicare or something. But the truth is Mr. Obama has not put forth any specific federal spending cuts. It’s all a bunch of general nonsense and so Colmes and I got into it.”

O’Reilly said that he was sorry for using the word “lying” but was glad that the yelling match occurred. According to the Fox News host, the outburst brought attention to the issue and showed people that it was time to wake up.

O’Reilly said: “Even though I’m sorry I said Alan was lying — I should not have used that word — I’m glad the exposition occurred. We the people need to wake up. The President of the United States is not looking out for the country right now. He’s hell-bent on destroying the Republican Party and he does not seem to care if the nation collapses as a result.”

Here’s the video of Bill O’Reilly and Alan Colmes yelling at each other.

Here’s the video of O’Reilly’s explaining his outburst.

So, that’s it. Glad that whole thing is settled.

Oh, wait. Kristen Powers and O’Reilly restarted the argument shortly after “The Memo.”

O’Reilly and Powers managed not to scream at each other (for the most part) but they still argued over the same points. Powers brought the “specific” cuts to the argument but O’Reilly still wasn’t convinced.

Powers said: “You need to admit you are wrong. You are wrong about this and now you’re playing a game.”

Are you a fan of Bill O’Reilly? Do you agree with him? Has the president failed to provide specific cuts?

    I like Bill O'Reilly and always have the only People that don't like him are the no Brain Liberals and Give me give me People.
    Obama is a obamanation all by himself and a Liar.
    Biggest lie was if he couldn't reduce and cut the Deficit in half in his first four years that he wouldn't run anymore.
    Once a Liar always a Liar.
    If the Shoe fits wear it.

Is it possible they do not know so call “Old and Good Party" is RIP and new GOP and there puppets Cons under total control of Koch Brothers and Rupert Murdoch master puppeteers of New World Order? Is it possible they do not know we have the best Republican majority Congress which Koch Brothers dory money can buy? Is it possible Tea Party people do not know they been hijacked, misled and used by Koch Brothers trough Rupert Murdoch Media Empire which is New World Order tool? And is it possible Republicans do not and can’t think any more and they are became puppets of New World Order masters and do not car why our country so divided and maybe we do not have any future as United States of America. And is it possible “Illuminate, Bilderberg Group, Skull and Bones, Bohemian Grove’s and same moors so call secret societies has anything to do with today reality.

Many followers of NWO don’t know all there plans especially final solution plans for all humanity which is to eliminate 80-90% worldwide population and slave all remains rest of 500 million people. Pleas do your research you mast Google "North American Union" and "New World Order" that it will wake you up to the reality!

    Instead of 'The O'Reily Factor', his program should be changed to, 'The Billy Springer Show'. In time, the policies of the Obama administration will give the old man a much deserved heart attack. How fitting that would be for such a staunch right wing fool that shows his ass on a daily basis.

    This O'Reilly was out of line with Colmes and to top it off with Kirsten. Sometimes I am watching him and I wonder if the guy had a couple of drinks before he faces the camera. The management at Fox has to stop this obnoxious behavior which is becoming more than routine. He complains that many people in business or politics refuse to appear in his program. Is he blind or something to understand that people does not wish to be subjected to this type of arrogance or misbehavior and lack of professionalism?

    He is absolutely correct when he says he a simple man, also simple minded. Go to the web site Bill and read before yoiu open up your stupid mouth. Bill is the biggest bully on TV.

    "Biggest lie was if he couldn't reduce and cut the Deficit in half in his first four years that he wouldn't run anymore."

    No, the biggest lie is the one you just made. You conserviitards still are STILL tryin' to sell the same 'ol sh*t, four years later, yet not one of you can find any such quote…why? Because he NEVER said that…what he DID say was THIS:

    “Look, I’m at the start of my administration, I’ve got four years. And, you know, a year from now I think people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress,” Obama said. “But there’s still going to be some pain out there. If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”

    The inference should be obvious, even to a halfwit like you. It's NOT saying, I won't run, it's saying, I probably won't get a second chance and we all know how 2012 went….

    I realize most you right-wingers barely graduated high school, but this isn't THAT difficult to understand..Or is it that like most Retardlicans, you'll never let the truth get in the way of a good lie?

    O'Reilly's behavior is odious. If there is one obvious decline in American culture, it is the means by which conservatives convey their feelings about economics and politics. While not all are guilty of brutish and overbearing crudeness, too many of them are. O'Reilly has set a low standard and FOX has rewarded him by complementing his style with colleagues who are almost as repulsive. I consider myself an independent and, in the area of economics, most clearly so. It embarrasses me, now, to agree with anything O'Reilly says because he is public excuse for crackpot crudity.
    I no longer watch FOX–it is the represents the repulsive underbelly of the Republican party–rotted and repulsive.

    If there were a God, he would resurrect Chris Hitchens who would eviscerate O'Reilly. As there is no God, and there will not be a return for Hitchens, I hope than O'Reilly gives himself a stroke. He needs just a mild cerebral hemorage. Enough to force FOX to retire him.

    Bill is a mess. His books about JFK and Lincoln should not be viewed as history, but rather historical fiction.

    Congress failed to compromise — with some Republicans insisting on protecting tax loopholes for the wealthiest Americans (seriously). Because of it, a series of devastating budget cuts known as the sequester are now in effect.

    O’Reilly is, was, and always will be a demonstrably stupid man. I told him so long ago, after teaching him how to stop saying “People like you and I” and “Beteeen you and I,” for which he never thanked me.

    It should be obvious that his followers (like a very nice landlord I once had) are as stupid.

    No hard feelings, but you can all go shitnyhat with him.

    Incidentally, I’m currently eating up the stock market while the fools (see below) are sared off like rabbits by the immoral basturd screams like “The millionaires are selling off!” so they can buy cheap.

    Why this enlightenment? Like FDR, I’m a proud traitor to my (rottener and rottener) class.

    Here's how people on the left like Colmes get away with their lies (and I do call them lies) and where Bill O'Reilly loses his arguments when he goes off the way he did. Colmes says that the President has said he is willing to cut Medicaid and Medicare. But many parts of these programs are being phased into Obamacare, thus making these so-called cuts, no cuts at all. Mr. O'Reilly, in his rage, fails to see through this SPIN in his so called NO SPIN ZONE.

    Like I said above, this is how liberals like you lie and get away with it. When you say Republicans insisted on protecting tax loopholes for the wealthiest Americans, you fail to mention that the sequester was never about tax loopholes. It only became that when President Obama tried to add tax increases into the discussion. The sequester was about cuts to the budget. It was meant for congress to compromise about what should be cut, and if they couldn't agree then these arbitrary cuts would take effect. It was President Obama and the Democrats who insisted on not compromising that lead to the sequester. But if you keep saying the same thing, eventually the truth gets pushed aside and everyone believes the lies.
