We already knew that Bill O’Reilly is a delusional liar, but it doesn’t hurt to have him prove it yet again. In the wake of the tragedy in Paris, O’Reilly tries to blame the Obama Administration for the attack.
Of course he does, because if something happens and they don’t like it then it is Obama’s fault. His claim is that Obama will be remembered for two things, “The failure to create a thriving economy and retreating from the war on terror.”
Anyone with a brain knows that the economy is thriving, compared to where it was with Bush, and that over the last 7 years it has improved and continued to improve under the good, sustainable, economic plan of the President. However, if there is something that the GOP suffers from more than transference, it is CRS (Can’t Remember Sh*t) disorder, so the fact that O’Reilly forgot where Bush left us is to be expected.
As for “retreating from the war on terror” I suppose he has forgotten who actually killed Osama Bin Laden? Or the two ISIS leaders killed by strikes ordered by this administration just this week? O’Reilly’s claims that the President has no strategy against ISIS are delusional. Our President knows that sending ground troops after ISIL is a mistake.

It really appears that most of the GOP is totally unaware that ISIL, the Islamic State, is not a place (except when they are hating all Muslims). We can not attack it without massive innocent civilian casualties and collateral damage, and we can not keep it at bay with anything less than a persistent military occupation of foreign (and unwelcoming) countries.
ISIL is a cancer, it must be removed surgically, yet the GOP wants to attack it with machine guns and damn the host.
The only strategy that any right-wing nutjob, like O’Reilly, would approve of would be the same kind of strategy that the Bush administration used and caused ISIL to be a reality in the first place – and that really is the definition of insanity.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_ZJhWTZf_Q&w=854&h=480]
