5:01 pm
>> jesse watters visits perhaps the most libertine unersity in the nation. >> i mean, really good looking. >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. ♪ ♪ >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly, thanks for watching us tonight. why the folks are angry about obamacare. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. everywhere i go, and i mean everywhere, people are walking up to me venting about obamacare. and some of these folks are supporters of the president. the consensus is that we have been let down. sold an important piece of legislation in an unfair way. to be fair, because that's what we are here. millions of americans will embrace obamacare but many of those people will be getting their health insurance free of charge or for will he little money. sad to say some measures
5:02 pm
don't really care that deceit was used in passing the affordable healthcare law. i shook my head yesterday reading the "new york times" editorializing that president obama misspoke about the new law. misspoke? a dozen times? even last week he continued to misspeak. the media that desperately wants universal healthcare paid for by the healthy and working americans continues to down play the problems it is becoming quite clear that many working americans will pay more, in some cases a lot more for their healthcare insurance because co-pays and deductibles are going up. but that isn't the worst part of the new law. nor is the computer chaos. the truth is that your doctor, the person you trust may not be available to you. writing in the "wall street journal" today, edie littlefield sunday who lives in california and fighting gallbladder cancer says she may not be able see the oncologist who has kept her alive. she writes, quote: what's
5:03 pm
happened to the president's promise you can keep your health plan? thanks to the law i have been forced to give up a world class health plan. the exchange would force me to give up a world class physician, unquote. from the sundby obamacare is a matter of life and death. for most of us it's inconvenience that will hurt americans financially. during barack obama's tenure take home pay has gone down. when mr. obama took office in january of 2009. the median household income in america was $55,871. in august, 2013, the last available stat, the median income had fallen to 52,000, $236 a year. that's the true measure of the economy. how much income the folks are making. and as you well know, prices for many things, including gasoline risen. also we're getting hammered by higher taxes on just about everything. yet, incomes are going down.
5:04 pm
so that's why people are so angry about obamacare. they can't afford to care pay for more health insurance. they don't have the money. talking points predicts that americans will become even more furious. and even though he says he doesn't know very much controversies this administration. this time, this time barack obama will be held responsible. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from washington. fox news chief political analyst brit hume. where am i going wrong here, brit. >> i don't think you are going wrong. i think it is worth noting it isn't just people like you and me voicing criticisms of obamacare and reporting on the people who are so far been victims of it. the mainstream media are in full cry about. this if if you-you no doubt have watched some of these recent white house briefings. they have been absolutely brutal in the various evasions and excuses being offered and attempts to blame it all on the insurance companies. they are just not buying it. this is not washing. and, of course, the more the
5:05 pm
administration tries to evade and obscure and so on and blame others, the more it feeds the story. this thing has -- this thing is out there. and it is rolling. >> it's rising. now we have v. bernie goldberg analyzing the national media and exactly what you said. do you have the "new york times" and msnbc and they are basically trying, as you said, making excuses. but i think the folks are passed that now. this is a personal thing because it's in your wallet. it's right in your wallet. whatever the media says right wing or left winged me were -- media. didn't feel benghazi, didn't pertain to them. didn't feel the irs going after the tea party unless you were one of the tea party people. but now, everybody is involved with this thing and that's the difference. correct? >> yes, and one more thing, bill, it's magnified by a growing sense in the country that what the "new york times" claimed in this editorial about the
5:06 pm
president misspeaking was ridiculous. in fact, the "times" own ombudsman was critical of that editorial and i think that people think that this was outright intentional deception. and that changes the equation in a certain way because the president has been able avoid responsibility for some of these other things that have been happening. >> one more question and then i want to get on to the virginia race which will be reflecting whether the country and particularly people of virginia are disenchanted with the democratic party. is there a difference in your opinion covering politics for all these years between deception and a lie? is there a difference? >> no. i think they are basically, essentially the same thing. i mean, the question is whether it's a willful deception. think of all a the times that george w. bush was accused of lying about chemical weapons in iraq. he was saying something that virtually every intelligence service in the world believed to be true, including, of course, our own, that democrat after democrat on capitol hill had asserted to be the case. it turned out to be wrong. that's one thing.
5:07 pm
that arguably is not even a deception. that's just an intelligence failure. this is something entirely different, bill. this is a case of something that the administration officials at the highest levels including the president had to know was not true and they kept on saying it anyway. >> all right. now in virginia you have a gubernatorial race tomorrow between a very fervent democrat terry mcauliff, expal -- not expal he is still a pal of bill clinton but very involved in the clinton administration. ken cuccinelli the former attorney general of virginia, a very conservative man. do you think that this race will reflect the obamacare controversy? >> perhaps to some extent. the race has tightened. mcauliff has been -- had a double digit lead in some polls. that has now closed. in some polls dramatically. >> 46, 40. right. >> what you can't tell bill whether that's the natural closing that tends to occur
5:08 pm
final days of every major race or whether this is the effect of obamacare leaking into this race. remember that cuccinelli was badly hurt? the closing month of the campaign or more by the government shutdown. remember, that the voting population of virginia is composed heavily of the washington, d.c. suburbs where a huge number of government workers live. they were not happy. >> they lost money. >> and it hurt cuccinelli badly and put him in a hole that it has been very difficult for him to climb out of. not only that the overall demographics of virginia changed purple state purple blue state. tough for him from the get-go. we won't know what the final element of this is until we see. >> exit polling will show it? >> yeah, cuccinelli is not ahead in any poll, so the odds obviously are clearly against him had. the race certainly has tightened. >> brit hume, everybody, next on the rundown, diane diane

5:13 pm
can tell, few, if any health insurances are grandfathered. in they all have to comply. all of them with the affordable healthcare mandates i hope that helps senator feinstein. joining us from washington mary katharineham and juan williams. both fox news analysts. you are one of the biggest apologists of obamacare. you are. >> you are one of the biggest attackers. i grant you good faith. i say you are a good faith man. >> no, no, no. i recognize there are some parts of the law that are are good. i just think that they could have been done in the private sector and now we are seeing what the government is capable of doing, which is throwing the whole country into mass chaos o. let me get to feinstein. here you have a very well thought of, very senior democratic senator. and she does just absolutely doesn't know what policies are grandfathered in or not. disos doesn't that disturb you, juan? >> no. it doesn't. >> it doesn't?
5:14 pm
>> i think this is a no spin zone. i don't think you are part of this right wing horror that is doing everything, shutting down government doing everything they can to undermine obamacare. let me give you a straight answer. if you had a plan before march of, i guess, 010 when the law went into effect. you are supposed to be able to keep tnd a i think the president mislead people. >> you can keep it you have to have all the -- >> -- let me finish. i will tell you. you can't keep it because -- >> -- you just said you could and now you say you can't. what is it, juan? >> there are minimum standards and a lot of these policies in the private insurance market, very small percentage, a% of all insurance. the vast majority of americans can keep their plans. >> millions of americans. >> vast majority can, bill. no doubt about that. >> not unless the plan mirrors the mandates. >> most the private employers meet the mandates. >> that's not what we were told. >> your loyal correspondent is here to tell that you is not right. >> juan, the promise was that everybody could keep their plan.
5:15 pm
that's not the case. feinstein's answer the thing you see from a lot of democrats and obamacare supporters lately. one famed or ignorance what was in the law. who thought they couldn't remake the entire healthcare sector. number two, she is sort of flippant about the people who are losing their coverage. this is millions of people. you can use 5% if you want it's millions of people losing their coverage who were not supposed to. he she is sort of flippant about it i'm not sure any can keep their coverage. all of this is in service of dancing around what was a known law, that the obama administration told. we now in "wall street journal" reporting that they knew that they were lying. they had a discussion should we lie about this? i don't know. it's a pretty big lie. >> come on, mary katharine. >> they needed to sell the law. the political guys in the white house decided that they needed this. >> they tried to put the spin. >> it's not a spin. >> try to spin tout. >> if you say every person in america can keep their plan, period, and that's not the truth. >> that's not the truth. >> then you are lying, period. >> it's a little bit more
5:16 pm
complicated than that. but the fact of the matter is that dianne feinstein doesn't know what the law says. >> she sure doesn't. >> that took three and a half years. and i will submit to you, juan, can i put any senator in that chair and they are not going to know either. they didn't read it, they just want this overall oh, we have to give health insurance for everybody. we have to be like denmark. that's what they want. too lazy to read it they don't know what it says. now all of that is coming back to bite everybody. go ahead. >> that's like asking anybody, any senator, what's in the tax policy? how does social security work? >> they should all know that juan. that's what we are paying them to do. >> look, the big point here and i hope you realize by the way when you talk about the folks want this or that the folks overwhelmingly in the poll say republicans stop owe tacking owe ba that care. let it go. let's see how this thing works. >> they don't want this thing. it's going to go down, juan it. >> you are wrong. this is one time i think you are wrong. i generally think you are
5:17 pm
right. i think you are wrong. you are missing is so many americans. >> juan, whether you have a woman writing an article in the "wall street journal" and she has no ax to grind. she has gallbladder cancer. she said you know what? good healthcare plan, taking it away i can't see my oncologist. you can't have that wawrn, each if it's one personal. you can't have it. >> you can't have it. >> not if you promise it's not going to happen that way. >> here is what i think the two of you are missing is that right now 40 million americans with no health insurance. >> you know that number goes up every program. first it's 20. and then it's 30. now it's 40. >> two against one can i finish for a second. >> you are being long winded,juan. >> i'm long winded? oh, jeez. let me say we have a health insurance system in this country it's a burden to business. burden to individuals and family. >> government can't run it, bottom line, juan. government can't -- >> -- you you are just attacking obamacare.
5:18 pm
you just don't want it. >> i want a good healthcare system for americans. government can't do it. go ahead, mary katharine. >> the rule is first do no harm. you are familiar with that in the medical community. obamacare is doing harm right now. people are losing insurance. they're not able continue to so up for new insurance. they're not able to afford the new insurance plans being offered. not able to get on the web site to get the obamacare promised them. unnecessary plans when they liked their plans before. this is a failure that democrats have to answer for. it's not being. >> see if they ask for it. >> they are not antidotes americans lied to. >> without trying to sell them a policy. if they stop selling the policy. they are going to go out of business. >> juan, at the beginning of this i said you are the biggest apologist. that's all right. that's okay. that's why we have you on here, juan. >> you are joining the right wing bandwagon? i know i'm a loon. how badly has the obama political machine been hurt? and why did mitt romney boot the last weeks of the 2012

>> how badly has the obama political machine been hurt by all the chaos? also, why did mitt romney blow the presidential election 2012. new book called double down, game change 2012. out tomorrow. it deals with all that and more. here now co-author mark halperin. the obamacare situation is
5:23 pm
dehe tieriating in my opinion. do you share that. >> i think it's possible that the president could end up having a four year term basically where nothing happens when the country needs a lot done. >> you agree with he this is not benghazi, it's not irs. it's -- this is really getting worse and worse and worse? >> it's possible. if you look at the seeds the way the president ran for reelections. basically in the fall of 2011. we write in the book he decided i'm not going to get anything done. i'm going to spend the last quarter of term attacking mitt romney and the republican party. when i beat them they will see for peace and i will move my agenda through. >> he never anticipated and factor viewers are mad at me when i say i don't use the lie word. i don't use use it he anticipated that everybody would be accepting of this. but he didn't anticipate the problems. now we see internal white house memos say they were warned. now, based upon your research of president obama himself, and his machine how could that possibly be? if he was warned this whole rollout might go south, why
5:24 pm
didn't he himself go out and say, you know what? maybe we need a little more time or any of that? >> i think it's pretty clear when the president decided to pass healthcare with only democratic votes, he put himself in a position of having healthcare be a war. a constant war. and in the campaign, they clearly didn't want to have that war. you didn't see president obama talking about healthcare. >> and romney didn't either because romney was romney care. >> i'm talking about now though. what is it in the president's personality that he doesn't take preemptive action to solve problems that he sees coming down the road? >> i don't think there is any doubt that internally is he trying to do that but the problem is when you are afraid to make mistakes political wars of washington you don't always get a chance to fix things the right way. of the way he ran for re-election made it more likely he would win but less likely he could govern successfully. he said the fever will break when i win and republican also want to work with me. well, they are not going to want to work with him on healthcare when he spent the last quarter of first term
5:25 pm
attacking them. >> is a he serial deceiver in your research. >> you would have to define what that means. >> it means he is not straight up to the american people. obviously he deceived on the affordable healthcare law has he done it before? is i a serial deceiver. >> when he talked about the failure of inability of people or said people would be able to keep their healthcare i think that was done. >> that's deception? >> that's deception. >> in your research, is he a deceptive man? does he use that time and again? >> time and again, compared to other presidents i wouldn't say that's true. can you find examples of plenty of other presidents doing that just what he has done on healthcare, again, because they are worried about political combat. it's a big mistake. >> it's going to wreck his term. >> mitt romney should have won the election i think. should have with the bad economy and everything else he should have won. >> if you look at it on paper given how bad the economy was, he certainly had a good chance to win. >> at the bolder fresher
5:26 pm
tour i tell my audience the reason he lost was two fold number one he wouldn't get the benghazi benghazi thing up in the third debate. he backed away from it why? >> your viewers i know your viewers incredibly interested in benghazi. -- i write in double down why he backed off has never been written before and it's going to explain to a lot of people why he backed off with detail it hasn't been told. basically two times he felt burned by it one on september 12th, when he put out a statement on the 119 and then came out on the 129 and reinforced it credit siding the it while the facts were unknownenned in the second debate when he felt burned by it it after those two occasions he was never going to get near it again. >> he he was crazy. he had the facts in the third debate. ety he got bamed by the press he could have hammered them easily. >> his campaign was telling him the country doesn't care about this issue. >> his campaign was telling him. >> without a doubt. every political person on his campaign says the base cares about this but the polls says we won't win on this issue.
5:27 pm
talk about the economy. >> 3 million less fewer votes than john mccain so the base was mad. >> i'm telling you though, people should read the account why he backed off. >> final question. the last week of the campaign, hurricane sandy hit. right? mitt romney disappeared from the national media totally vanished. i would have given him a whole hour on the program. wouldn't come on o. why? >> account four book explains it better than anyone ever has. the campaign manager and governor romney felt anything he did during that period would look like he try to politicize a crisis they didn't want to take that on. >> disappears while obama is doing the lomb bad doe with christie over in jersey. >> great scene in the book on ohio what should i do? nothing they thought. he wanted to fly to new jersey and try to meet with people who had been affected by the storm. they couldn't figure out something to do that they thought would work. he had disappeared and that may have cost him the election right there. >> total chaos.

>> unresolved problem
5:32 pm
segment tonight, brutality, not talking about people getting hurt on the field. we are talking about people being harmed off the field. 24-year-old offensive lineman jonathan martin who plays for the miami dolphins says he was forced to play thousands of dollars to fellow teammates and brutally bullied by them. he was hit the team. another offensive lineman for conduct detrimental to the team. >> in regard to jonathan with any player with an injury or illness our primary concern is for the health of the individual. with respect to jonathan he has been excused with a non-football illness. our concern and support are with him and really that's all i'm going to say. >> joining us now from miami, troy stratford, former dolphins running back who now covers sports for wi z radio. >> what is the inside story? i'm not believing. 320-pound offensive lineman who f. someone is
5:33 pm
brutalizing him emotional that guy can take care of the other guy. what's the inside story. >> bill, just like you just stated that you have got a 300-pound lieman a lot of people think because is he a football player and is he that big is he not a sensitive guy or he may not be offended by certain things. so last week when the story broke, woe all nowlt that jonathan martin was just that someone who was not a tough football player. we are finding out in the last 24 hours when tapes were made available of richie incog any toe bullying him, intimidating him. threatening him even using racial slurs on voice messages to jonathan martin it's a bigger story. so now the miami dolphins have a major problem on their hands and nfl have a a huge problem on their hands. >> i understand mr. martin told the coach philbim last summer that he was being emotionally battered not only by incog any toe but other members of the team
5:34 pm
-- unbelievable philbim wouldn't do anything about it then. >> it depends on what he told the coach back then. that took place last spring. that is common knowledge when it comes to the nfl locker room. the rookies usually have to go out and buy lunch or breakfast or dinner or whatever it is. in the last few years it has gotten totally out of control because salaries have increased so the veteran players they get the younger guys together and they go out and they have these extravagant nights where the bill is 30, 40, $50,000. to me, i wouldn't pay that i'm sure the older guys wouldn't play that as well. this is totally out of hand. the money thing i understand. when it comes to personal attacks and threats. that's when we are talking about a serious issue. >> you know, again, there are assistant coaches all over the place. like 20 coaches for each team now. philbim was warned as you say in the spring that this was happening it escalated and didn't stop.
5:35 pm
i'm laying it on the head coach's doorstep am i unfair to do that. >> you are right on that. it depends again on what they were told in the spring. >> you investigate, mr. stratford you investigate. if you are told you don't go by somewhat saying. you assign assistant coaches in the nfl to find out what the hell was going on. this was going on for 8, 9, 10 months. it's ridiculous. >> bill, i agree with you, how much was jonathan martin is he feeling that stigma of i'm 300 pounds, i'm this big offensive lineman, football player, am i going it tell everything? maybe he told a little bit. and then. >> again, the investigation should have been launched martin walks out on the team it got so bad. you say and i haven't heard the tapes. there is tapes of incognito, i mean the ownership of the miami dolphins should be embarrassed. the team is heading south as you know anyway. >> not yet. but i will tell you this.
5:36 pm
>> not going to help them out. it's a tough league. >> it's going to reveal more as we go along because richie incognito he is not going to go away quiet as well. this is going to get a lot more ugly ler before it gets better. >> thank you mr. strad ford. we will stay on that story for sure. bernie goldberg on the obamacare zealots trying to save the new law. watters, at the most libertine university in the u.s.a. those reports moments away. with premium service like one of the best on-time delivery records and a low claims ratio, we do whatever it takes to make your business our business. od. helping the world keep promises. store and essentially they

thanks for staying with us, i'm bill o'reilly in the weekdays with bernie segment tonight. most of the country is turning against obamacare, the liberal zealots who support the program continue to make excuses. >> these 14 million people that buy insurance on the individual marketplace, some of them are going to get these notices because they have. i can't use the s word. they have crappy insurance. >> part of what happened when the president said if you like your plan you can keep it is that was an assumption in the administration that people wouldn't like that plan. >> unbelievable. joining us from miami the purveyor of bernard.com mr. goldberg. we expect that stuff from the liberal operation, that's what they do. what about the mainstream national media. have they been covering the story fairly in your opinion? >> yeah. the so-called mainstream
5:41 pm
media have covered the disastrous rollout. they have covered the cancellation letters that people are getting. but they deserve no credit for finally doing their job. and the reason i say finally, bill, is because i have done some research on this and during the three years leading up to this. very very few news organizations, less than a handful, actually told us what was going to happen. that's their job. what they did when president obama said if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it they simply wrote it down. that's what stenographers do. that's not what journalists do. now we have a situation where the president either had no idea what was in his own signature healthcare plan so making him clueless or he looked the american people in the eye and told us a story that wasn't true.

now, i don't know which it is. i have a suspicion which it is. >> which is it? >> i think he lied to us. i don't use the word lie. >> let's explore that because that's a very controversial go ahead. >> bill, let me just ask you a question. >> sure. >> several times tonight you have said he deceived us and mislead us. >> right. >> you said i don't like using the word lie. >> if he deceived us and mislead us he lied to us. >> it's more kneance than that here is how i i arrived at my opinion. i don't think he read the law and i don't believe dianne feinstein read the law. i don't believe they read it i don't believe they know what the hell is going on either of them. ably evidence that they are like a lot of other americans very ideologically disposed to giving
5:43 pm
healthcare to everybody. i support the drone strikes, okay? so if somebody comes to me with evidence that civilians are being killed in the drone strikes, my rationalization is what are they doing living with the taliban and i'll divide guys? if they're dead not not going to lose a lot of sleep over it so what? you can't keep your own health plan because this is so much better for the country. this is a rationalization that goes that's what obama did. i don't think he knows what's in that bill. >> if that's true this a story that the liberal media is missing. liberals talk to everybody. you you see i know what's best for you. the insurance plan that you have is substandard, it's a crummy plan. it's to use the president's word, you're underinsured. this is how parents speak to
5:44 pm
children. i know what's best because you are not grown up enough to know what's best for you. >> paternalism. >> liberal paternalism, exactly. this is how superiors talk to inferiors. this is how this president talks to the american people. a gallup poll came out today in which his approval ratings were only 40%. disapproval 53%. and obviously that's related to obamacare. but i think it's more specifically related to the fact that many americans believe he looked them in the eye and deceived them voter don't know how many states there are in the united states. they won't tolerate that they won't tolerate the president looking them in the eye and telling them the story that wasn't true. that's what we are seeing now. >> especially when they're going to get hurt financially. especialry when they are going to be paying for it i have an interesting talking point memo i'm not going to

5:56 pm
president obama. maybe it's time you began to demonize and marginalize him. all right. let's see where that's gotten the anti-obama forces, william. they made a big deal out of the birth certificate. remember that? helped barack obama. made him a victim. then they called him a socialist and a come oh nis. sounded like joseph mccarthy. americans don't like that. then talk radio and some on cable attacked the president personally. instead of analyzing issues in detail. so he becomes sympathetic in the eyes of independents. they tried to defund obama care causing nonideological americans to scorn the republican party. i don't think the strategy is working well, will. my factual analysis, much more effective. >> darryl from columbus, ohio. bill, you were spot b on saying president obama will say anything because he believes the end justifies the means.
5:57 pm
from chicago. bill, i am glad you realize the president is driven by the end justifying the means. that is a communist manifesto. they often use deception to achieve what they believe is the greater good. that's the wrong thing to do. jason miller, new jersey. we would be thrilled if you come to express your disapproval of the christmas carol ban, bill. from what i understand the school superintendent there reverseded the foolish decision. on thursday it doesn't look like we have to go down there alone. i am jewish. my favorite memory of school was singing christmas carols. jesus was born and die maryland the jewish religion. o'reilly, why did you mention that lincoln and john kennedy believed jesus was god in the introduction to killing squebs?
5:58 pm
perhaps because i wrote books on them and was noting that. it might be the reason i mentioned it. john from england, is "killing jesus" on sale here? it is, john. if you want a signed copy, bill o'reilly.com ships overseas. the tip of the day. in less than three week it is nation will pause to remember the assassination of president john f. kennedy. sadly many american students and some adults have no idea what took place. >> how much do you know about the jfk assassination? >> not a lot. >> who killed jfk. >> boony? something boony? >> his name was -- >> oswald griffin! >> do they know -- >> no. >> why did lee harvey oswald shoot him? >> he was a communist from russia. >> who became president after jfk died? >> ford. >> do you think it is important to know about the jfk
5:59 pm
assassination? >> other than it happened, not really. >> unfortunately many public school systems echo that sentiment. they don't teach much about history anymore. that's why i wrote "kennedy's last days" for children 9 to 14 so they can understand a crucial moment in american history. anyone older can read "killing kennedy." next sunday on the national geographic channel 8:00 eastern time the movie "killing kennedy" debuts. it's up to parents and grandparents to school kids on history. if you don't, they won't know. if they don't know the citizenship will be weak in the future. that's it for us tonight. check out the fox news factor website. if you would like the to spout off, o'reilly@fox news.com. name and town if you wish to opine. we are bringing back an oldie for word of the day. do not be a popinjay.
