Tonight "The O'Reilly Factor" is on...Leave it to O'Reilly to spin Clinton's criticism as somehow incompatible with the desire to raise funds for post-Katrina relief.
Former President Bill Clinton is lashing out at the Bush administration over Hurricane Katrina. Is it right for him to be speaking out now against the current administration? Plus, why is he taking aim at President George W. Bush's administration while raising money for the hurricane's victims with the president's father, George H.W. Bush?
I guess this shouldn't be so surprising. In O'Reilly's world, people who would dare to criticize President Bush are also the kind of people who want to see families go without food or housing.
It just doesn't seem possible to O'Reilly that someone can believe that the initial emergency response sucked and still want to help victims. In fact, one of the reasons someone might want to go the extra mile to help out is precisely because the initial government efforts were so pathetic.
Actually, I'm a little disappointed by O'Reilly's teaser. I expected something with more "red meat." A more crowd-pleasing teaser for his conservative viewers might have been:
