O'Reilly: 'If I Were Head of the Republican Party...'
Why aren’t Republicans further ahead of Democrats in the midterm races? Bill O’Reilly and Charles Krauthammer discussed this tonight.
Krauthammer said people don’t particularly like Republicans, associating the GOP as “the party of no.”
O’Reilly then told Krauthammer what he would do as head of the Republican Party.
“If I were the head of the party, I would take out ads in all of the states that matter, and I would say the Republican Party stands for this […] a travel ban from West Africa with Ebola […] immigration reform, taxes, and have short, pithy solutions," he said, explaining that the U.S. has a distracted electorate right now.
“The folks don’t know what the message is,” O’Reilly said.
Krauthammer said that he doesn’t believe an ad will make a difference. He said the race on one hand is a referendum on Obama. On the other hand, Democrats have relatively strong candidates. He told O’Reilly that the party has to define itself “on the ground in the Senate when you win it.”
O’Reilly asked: is Krauthammer predicting that the GOP will take the Senate?
“I’m not exactly going out on a limb here, yes, I am predicting it. And I have been wrong in the past – rarely – but I have been wrong. I’m also predicting the Royals in the World Series.”
