Bill O'Reilly: No Freedom Fighter

I posted the following comment (# 28) on this article:

Mr. O'Reilly implies that the WH irrationality is Mr. Emanuel’s doing. If this is true, then President Obama is mindless. Otherwise, he is irrational and a tyrant.

Mr. O’Reilly’s counsel to President Obama is not anchored on individual rights. Don’t attack Fox News because it is hypocritical, Mr. O’Reilly advises. President Obama shouldn’t, because it is unconstitutional. Mr. O’Reilly "would remind the president that the US military, being a vital enterprise, deserves a chance to win…." The US military has self-esteem, honoring its constitutional mandate to secure rights. Sacrificing national security and soldiers evinces the civilian leadership’s immorality.

Mr. O’Reilly counsels: drop the healthcare public option, increase insurance competition, add tort reform – because these bring down healthcare costs without taxpayer money. President Obama and Mr. O'Reilly need to be reminded of the Declaration of Independence and what its author said:
"Rightful liberty is UNOBSTRUCTED ACTION according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."
As top adviser to the president, Mr. O'Reilly guarantees higher poll numbers for Mr. Obama.

Mr. O'Reilly is no freedom fighter.
