O'Reilly put up this graph that showed how Mr. Obama's daily contribution to our national debt has greatly exceeded that of his predecessors; Bush 2 and Clinton. Assuming that the data is accurate (and it probably is), it would have also been nice if Mr. O'Reilly (not so much to make excuses for Mr. Obama but for some "fairness/"balance") had pointed out that a) Mr. Obama inherited the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression and b) made a concerted effort to salvage a war in Afghanistan that his predecessor, Mr. Bush, had majorly neglected. Not that these two factors alone would have been sufficient in explaining this admittedly massive discrepancy. But it at least would have explained a modicum of it....And this, folks, right after Mr. O'Reilly claimed to his HUGE audience, "We always dig a little deeper here at 'The Factor'."
