Just wondering........when Bill O says he is the only one listening to the folks what do you think he is talking about.
He came here to San Diego and the prices were 97.00 to 142.00 for regular tickets. For the meet and greet with him and Dennis Miller it was 539.00.
Do you think those are the people he is constantly referring to as "the folks."
He again said last evening he meets people all over the country who are very angry about Obama care.
Does he ever talk to all of the other folks who want health care and who voted for President Obama.
Juan Williams tried to tell him this but he immediately shut him down and would not listen to his facts.
I am thinking that he imagines the 539.00 payers he meets on the Bolder and Fresher gig are the folks.
Does he think this group represents the common people as you have indicated. Well, what do you think.........Just who are these so called "folks".......
Bill is always claiming his show is one of the few in the media that actually base their points on the facts. I think his interpretations of "the folks" are a fact that he has incorrect.
Claiming "the spin stops here" arrogantly and nightly.......based on our President, and his ideas and accomplishments......wouldn't this be an area where Bill is incorrect...going on the fact that President Obama was elected and re-elected. Bill is incorrectly discounting this very large group of people in his statement.
my response to Kingfish17 on Newsbusters.......talking about Geraldo Rivera in favor of health care for everyone.
