Bill O’Reilly Lashes Out at Critics of “Stuff” Comment

Bill O’Reilly took aim at “far left” critics of his election night comment that the “white establishment is now the minority” and that “there are 50 percent of the voting public who want stuff. They want
things. And who is going to give them things? President Obama.”

He singled out Variety’s Brian Lowry for scorn, calling him a “far left loon” for a blog post that said he and Sean Hannity were “lamenting” the shift in the electorate. But Brian writes that what is puzzling is why O’Reilly is so eager “to publicize negative appraisals of himself that must leave his audience scratching their heads.” Among the other clips that Hannity cites: John Leguizamo doing an ichat on HuffPostLive. Brian has a top ten list of why he should relish the moment.

O’Reilly says that the media “spun” that he was “lamenting” the vote when he was offering his analysis.

On that note, today another figure offered his analysis: Mitt Romney. He told donors that he lost because of Obama’s “gifts” to young voters and minorities, like healthcare, “amnesty for children of illegals” and forgiven student loan interest. In other words, “stuff.”
