It is the end of an era. Fox News officially fired popular host Bill O’Reilly amid unfounded allegations of sexual harassment. Tucker Carlson, host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” will move up to O’Reilly’s coveted 8 p.m. time slot.
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and Fox contributor Dick Morris both seem to think Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is just biding her time until she can run against Barack Obama for president in 2012.
On 60 Minutes earlier this week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commented that the American economy is making it more difficult for her to do her job because other nations are telling her that “we always look to you because you have this great economy, and now you’re in the ditch.” Bill O’Reilly saw “a little jab” at the President in those comments, blaming the White House for her job troubles, but guest Dick Morris took that premise a bit further, suggesting the remarks, coupled with her silence on health care reform, were a deliberate attempt to undermine the President building up to 2012.“I think there is a subtle distancing going on, and it began over health care,” Morris noted, pointing out that Clinton was not vocal about supporting health care reform.

She sure wasn’t. We heard nary a peep from Hillary when it came time to support Obama’s health care reform initiative. She pretty much stayed out of it.
Will Hillary make a run for president in 2012 and thereby oust her boss from the White House? You bet ‘cha!
You just know Hillary is sitting back collecting all types of intel to use against Obama in 2012!
First, Nas ethered Jay Z on a track and now Jay Z has been ethered by two right wing conservatives!
Jay Z dissed conservative talk show hosts Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh in a verse on a leaked track off his upcoming Blueprint 3 album. In “Off That” featuring rapper Drake, Jay tells O’Reilly to “fall back” and asks Limbaugh to “Get off my balls/It’s 2010, not 1864.”
O’Reilly responded by calling Jigga a “pinhead” on his popular O’Reilly Factor show on FOX on Monday. And yesterday, Limbaugh hit back at Jay Z’s diss on his popular radio show:
“I have been mentioned in a rap song by the rapper Jay-Z,” Limbaugh said. “The new song mentions me and the moderate Bill O’Reilly.” Limbaugh then actually played a clip of “Off That” before chiming back in. “As far as I know, I have never been mentioned in a rap song by anybody. It means I’ve made it — I’m now on a rap tune by the famous rapper Jay-Z.”
Limbaugh then elaborated on the reference to him in the lyric. “I would remind the rapper Jay-Z: Mr. Z, it is President Obama who wants mandated circumcision. That means if we need to save our penises from anybody, it’s Obama. I did not know I was on anybody’s b—s, either. I’m happy to know that they think I am, though.” The mention of Obama is in reference to the fact that the Center for Disease Control is considering recommending circumcision to high-risk adult men to reduce the spread of HIV, according to The New York Times. read more…
Jay Z got exactly what he wanted from Rush and Bill: attention. Unfortunately, the track is still lame.
Dr. Brian Day, the former President of the Canadian Medical Association, appeared on the O’Reilly Factor on Thursday to give Americans a better understanding of Canada’s free health system that includes rationed medical care.
Dr. Day explained why there aren’t enough doctors for Canadian citizens:
We rank 26 out of 28 in the developed countries as far as doctors to population. It’s part of the mechanism of rationing that has to happen when you promise to deliver everything and don’t have enough resources.
And here’s what he said about those long lines of patients waiting for medical care in Canada, which explains why so many well-to-do Canadians come to the U.S. to seek treatment.:
We have over a million people waiting for surgery and probably another million waiting to see their specialist before they get to wait for the surgery.
