[VIDEO] Dem Congressmen Fail When Confronted About Irresponsible Racism Claims

NRO‘s Andrew Johnson has a good summary here.

Two Democratic congressman who recently charged Republicans with racism were forced to answer for their claims when confronted by Fox News’s Jesse Watters.

First, Watters took on Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman Steve Israel (D., N.Y.) for telling CNN last month that Republican opposition to immigration reform is “animated by racism.”

“You are picking up on something that was out of context, and happened three weeks ago, so I question why you would even ask that,” Israel said to Watters as he tried to get into an elevator… (read more)

Mourners gather to pay respects to the host of “Piers Morgan Live” before rushing home to watch “The O’Reilly Factor”

  • “Last fall, the already struggling Piers Morgan Live faced increased competition from a revised Fox News Channel lineup that included a strong new performer at 9 p.m. EST with Megyn Kelly’s The Kelly File…” — Entertainment Weekly
  • “CNN confirms that ‘Piers Morgan Live’ is ending,” the network said in a statement. “The date of the final program is still to be determined.” — lattimes.com
  • “…He hosted BBC’s “You Can’t Fire Me, I’m Famous,” and did interview shows and documentaries for ITV…CNN did not comment on Morgan’s future with the channel…” Associated Press – fox news.com
  • “Mr. Morgan’s approach to gun regulation was more akin to King George III, peering down his nose at the unruly colonies and wondering how to bring the savages to heel.

[VIDEO] Obama vs. O’Reilly: Obama’s Credo ‘When All Else Fails, Assign Blame’

ObamaSuperBowl

Ace nails it:  

Obama claims that Benghazi is a false scandal which is only talked about because people on FoxNews keep talking about it. Full video below. He denies everything. He also denies denying everything.

 

“These kind of things keep resurfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them..”

Deadline Hollywood reports:

Things turned tense quickly today between President Obama and Bill O’Reilly in their Super Bowl pregame interview. “OK, Bill, you’ve got a long list of my mistakes,” Obama said to The O’Reilly Factor host near the gutfeld-obama-whinesstart of their 10-minute live interview on Fox. That remark — in response to a question from O’Reilly whether it was the biggest mistake of Obama’s presidency when he told Americans no one would lose their healthcare under Obamacare — was one of a number of points on which the two butted heads.  The duo sparred almost from the beginning in the interview live from the White House this afternoon. Obama also took on Fox News Channel when O’Reilly asked him about reports the IRS was investigating Tea Party-related groups for political reasons. “These kind of things keep resurfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them,” Obama said. “When you look there have been multiple hearings.” Obama denied any corruption, just some “boneheaded decisions.” Earlier, the Fox News host interrupted Obama with a “you’re not going to answer that?” as the President replied to a question about why he didn’t fire Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius after the botched online launch of Obamacare.
