O’Reilly Defends Obama Against Bachmann

Was the cold weather Wednesday due to hell freezing over? Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly defended President Obama on his show Wednesday after fellow conservative Michele Bachmann criticized the president for his “lifestyle of excess” at the White House. At CPAC last week, Bachmann slammed Obama for having “five chefs on Air Force One ... two projectionists who operate the White House movie theater ... and someone to walk the president’s dog.” On Wednesday night’s show, O’Reilly said Bachmann—whom “the program had been fair to, always”—did not want to comment, that the Minnesota congresswoman was engaged in a “trivial pursuit,” and that Obama is “entitled to protection, convenience, and comfort.” He also noted that the president does not employ a dog walker.
