Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight liberals and conservatives ganging up on Mitt Romney that is -- subject of this evening's talking points memo.
What are the bad things about America is at some of -- hostility to kick people when they're down that's exactly what's happening to Mitt Romney right now.
Millions Americans are very disappointed that the governor did not wage a more aggressive campaign to one -- President Obama.
Instead -- played it safe dynamic the president on Libya -- the third debate and pretty much sitting out the last eight days of the campaign.
After hurricane sandy hit the East Coast -- governor simply disappeared from the news cycle.
Apparently I was fine with him because he had many opportunities to state his case with some urgency in the last weekend.
So pres Obama's team run by the brilliant David Axelrod won the fourth quarter date.
They pinpointed voided voters who might support them got him out to vote on Election Day.
Meantime the Romney campaign made a series of local appearances saying the same thing over and over -- no.
Early on election night when -- began to appear I said this.
And there are 50%.
Of the voting public who want stuff.
They want things.
And who is going to give them things.
He knows it and he ran on it.
Now that's -- truth and there's no denying this statistics and exit polling.
However some liberal Americans were outraged.
That I would actually say the truth.
And I'll tell you -- in a moment.
Eight days after the vote Mitt Romney held a conference call with his donors and pretty much said what I said.
-- on certain members of this based coalition.
Give them extraordinary.
Financial gifts from the government.
And and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote.
Again that's the truth and -- -- backup.
20% of those who voted on Election Day make under 30000 dollars a year those folks are either poor or close to.
Many of those voters receive entitlements food stamps housing subsidies are -- thing.
And of course they don't want those programs caught or reorganize.
Among Americans making less than 30000 bucks a year 63%.
Voted for Barack Obama.
Just 35% voted from -- From that group the president received about seven million more votes than Romney did.
Obama won the popular vote by three and a half million.
So it is -- stone cold fact.
That lower income Americans largely re elected President Obama.
Now the -- is going to school green when you say that because they don't want to acknowledge.
The economics of the vote.
So what I told you the truth on election night I was immediately branded a racist and works.
This is what Americans should understand liberals want to see themselves as you know all bull.
They don't wanna consider the fact that entitlements.
By votes that's -- against their sensibilities.
So you tell them the truth that it died of his do indeed by boats.
They attack you.
But now Mitt Romney's also getting it from the right -- Conservative George will called -- out on Sunday.
Criticizing the American people particularly because a lot of what they're despised them for Republican policies from the -- women -- Romney said.
So many Americans are paying taxes you now because the Republicans.
Doubled the child tax credit for conservative reasons -- yes because they expanded the earned income tax credit.
As Ronald Reagan did because they thought it was an effective anti poverty program.
Willis -- -- the issue it doesn't matter where he entitlements come from.
Millions of Americans want them.
They want the government to -- by.
Newt Gingrich also slammed Romney.
I don't think it's -- I went for first of all it's insulting the simulate Wal-Mart having a bad we -- the customers who really bent -- ruling the I mean I think a good job of a political leader apart us understand the people we can't offer a better future that is believable to more people we're not -- let him.
Well what does that mean mr.
speaker is the Republican Party going to out entitlement.
The Democrats what does that mean.
Mitt Romney's failure is very clear he could not convince the majority of voters that he would look out for them.
He did not show enough outrage over sixteen trillion dollar debt or explain what that can lead to a total economic collapse.
Romney was timid.
Wasn't Paul Revere spreading the word about danger.
Ask yourself this question what do you think those making less than 30000 dollars a year were voting for.
What -- voting for.
Do you think they were voting for massive debt.
Were they voting for continued chaos in the Middle East where they voting for more government regulations.
That -- businesses from hiring working people.
When -- voting for 8% unemployment -- keep salaries -- -- -- because there are more workers and jobs.
-- -- voting for any of that.
Millions of lower income Americans voted for the candidate.
Who they thought was going to directly help them financially.
Not every Obama voted did that but many absolutely did.
Now going for the Republican Party does have to change it can't disparage poor people it has to engage them.
Pass to demonstrate that a healthy economy.
Based on discipline and robust capitalism.
Will live far more people out of poverty than government handouts will pick -- cells that.
Maybe Marco Rubio or Bobby Jindal or Nikki Haley maybe they -- Finally governor Romney also did not confront the far left fanatics.
Who demonize them and will you be a perfect example.
The Washington Post editorialized last week that -- your humble correspondent served a big big -- commentary.
On election night well.
Couple of hours before -- Obama's declared the Victor Bill O'Reilly off.
-- his explanation for why Mitt Romney was about to lose because it's a changing country it's not a traditional America anymore.
In case anyone might be confused about the meaning of traditional he elaborated the white establishment.
It's now the mine art.
In other words the problem was.
Too many voters of color.
-- -- How -- In other words.
You pin heads have no right to lie about me by putting fabricated words in my mouth.
That's not what I said.
You disgrace to journalism industry.
You seek to demonize anyone who disagrees with -- -- a far left view -- being clear enough.
The white establishment.
No longer dominates the political field in America that is crystal clear.
I don't laments that I'm not hiding for return Calvin Coolidge I usually ported it.
But for -- ideologues such inconsequential.
The post summed up their dishonest commentary saying quote.
It's encouraging that many Republicans are repudiating.
Or -- Romney worldview.
-- -- Well here's what's really contemptible.
You guys spinning an honest look at the vote as a diatribe against poor people and minorities that's what's contemptible.
The Washington Post had a -- of staff could not care less about the true.
That American society is -- -- it.
On a giant federal -- which cannot possibly afford all this stuff is giving out backs the truth.
We are turning into Western Europe.
That is exactly what the Washington Post wants.
Their world view is destructive to America.
And it will be confronted here.
That's memo by the way to.
