What a shock. Sour grapes Bill O'Reilly didn't like President Obama's inaugural speech today. And what set Bill-O off that irritated him so badly about it? President Obama was advocating for... gasp... social justice! The horror! The only thing that was missing here was him calling us Greece. That and saying the words that didn't cross his lips, which is Social Security and Medicare. Apparently those are "welfare" now.

I wonder how many of the retirees who watch his show and actually take it seriously realize he's talking about them?

Bill O’Reilly: ‘President Obama’s Attempts to Redistribute Prosperity Will Bankrupt America’:

Tonight in his Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly critiqued President Obama’s inaugural address. Instead of focusing on the country’s fiscal problems, O’Reilly assessed, the president argued that America’s top priority must be social justice.

President Obama stated in his speech, “We reject the belief that America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future.”

O’Reilly said, “Talking Points disagrees with President Obama’s priority, all though social justice is a noble goal. It is simply impossible to do what the president wants to do. Ensuring prosperity and fairness for every American can’t be done no matter how much money you spend.”

The Factor host said it would be more productive to build a strong society based on robust free market and effective social programs that provide opportunity rather than charity. “The danger is that Mr. Obama’s persistent attempts to do that, to redistribute prosperity, will bankrupt the nation,” he said.

Bill-O seems like he's still pretty crabby now that his taxes are going to be going up. I'm still waiting for him to make good on his promise and move out of the country.
