A note from the outside:
Why is it that most republicans argue with versions of "if you don`t understand that, you`re an idiot", while the democrats over and over come up with facts no one listen to?

Antother side note:
I spent my honeymoon in the big ol` US of A two years ago, and the only way for me to get updated on what was going on in the rest of the world was to watch Comedy Central.

Debate all you want. You probably haven`t got a clue what you`re talking about anyway.

Let me get this straight:
Letterman Pwned O`reilly because he said that he thinks 60% of what O`reilly says is wrong...yet he doesn`t watch him....and he came to this conclusion only from what he was "told" and from what he read from other people.
Sound right?
Both men are still asses (and I do research my views), but it`s extra lame-o to go on TV and claim intellectual superiority without any info to back up your assertions, when you don`t have the balls or are so wrapped up in a particular political leaning to research the matter yourself.

No, I don`t get jealous when a liberal uses them. I never use them. I think they are ALL ridiculous.
And, for the record, I`m actually a Democrat and an atheist and I support gay marriage. I also happen to not be against the war.
I just don`t like extreme liberals OR conservatives. It`s gotten so tiring - the "my team MUST be the winner, no matter what" mindset.

Oh, you mean like "It`s freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion!" or, "Eat Freedom Fries" or, "It was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve." What, Enohead, you get jealous when a liberal uses them? ;-)

I mean, I could`ve quoted my favorite one of the last month, "If you can read this, you`re not the President!"

I hate this these damn politics all the time, people believe everything they hear and one thing I am so sick of hearing is that America is in this war for the oil!! I don`t care if your for troops being there or not, and I don`t care to state my opinion because I don`t feel like getting blasted by 13 year olds on this website that think they know the world when they are in high school yet. Believe what you want but we are not there for freaking oil, if you had any common sense you would know that.

Mallowman, you rule. I agree entirely with everything you`ve written.

And on a personal note... Why are we -really- bothering to argue about this other then the sanctity of conversationalism? Obviously everyone has their own views on the war thats going on. Personally I think the whole thing is bull-poo and is, for the most part, a big waste. We should of kept it at "No wmds? Good." and left. Not "No wmds? *nuke*" With whats going on over there, if we pulled out right now from this war, we`d start another war. Hell, to be honest its probably about to start. WWIII. Some countries going to step in and smack us up and say "cut the poo out America." Im not taking any sides at all, its just my opinions that this whole war was a mistake.

Seriously people, get off this "Bush lied" crap. He did NOT lie and no one has ever proven he lied. This is like some fad that just won`t go away. Apparently, you`re "cool" if you hate Republicans. After all, all the celebrities are liberals......By the way, the WMDs intelligence was, for the most part, correct. The only problem was there were inconsistencies in reports about the location of the weapons. Current intelligence points to Syria and southwestern Russia as the most likely WMD locations. Remember, Russia was the nation that provided most of Saddam`s arsenal. It makes sense that Russia would help him hide the weapons to protect themselves.......By the way, Bill was right as always and Dave made a fool of himself. Sheehan lost her right to sympathy when she disgraced her son`s name.

You guys all sound like you didn`t even watch the video! O`Reilly simply stated that he does not appreciate Cindy Sheehan calling the terrorists "freedom fighters", so get off his back about it. Sheehan is a proven lunatic. During the Katrina situation, she said she wanted the soldiers to stop occupying New Orleans! Anytime Letterman said anything, no matter how stupid, his mindless audience applauded like crazy. Either Dave actually agrees with Sheehan`s pro-terrorist, anti-Semitic, anti-American stance, or he has his head firmly planted in the sand like the rest of you.

Its not all Iraqi people fighting back, 90% are from syria, iran etc...
To say the Iraq people don`t want freedom is assinine. They are the ones who risked getting blown up by the insurgents to go vote.
Freedom Fighters do not kill people who want freedom. They fight for freedom, The new Iraq army, those people are freedom fighters. Not the ones killing them.

1.Im a Democrat
2. The Iraq qar was a dumb thing to do and the Iraqi`s don`t want us there, but I don`t know and none of you know why really went to war, only Bush and a few others do. Bush claims it was WMDs and we don`t know if he truly thought there were WMD`s or was just falseifying information to get oil,I think it was both, he wanted to go for oil and used the WMd`s (which he thought were true) as an excuse, but the bottom line is there were no WMD`s and we drated up, we can`t pullout of Iraq now cause that woulf drat everything up, but we can get are troops better body armor and other things.
3.I am really sorry that Cindy Shean lost her son in Iraq and we need to help her and feel sorry for her but, seriously, you can`t think that the Terrorists are freedom fighters, they are drating lunatics who hate us because were Christain not because we went into Iraq

repcpa, I thought I heard something about Byron Dorgan and donations. I looked it up and it says he and fellow Demoract (along with several Republicans) gave up or returned the donations they accepted from Abramoff`s clients. I wish Reid shared that wisdom...

Perhaps it should be tweaked to say the donations scandal is primarily a Republican problem, because they orchestrated it.

You (budsbd) shouldn’t gorge too much on the liberal propaganda which they use strictly to get your vote. Quite contrary, there is ample proof of Saddam running multiple programs to develop WMDs. There is also evidence of the countries who supplied the materials for these weapons programs, and of course there is evidence that Saddam deployed chemical weapons to kill Iranians as well as his own people. You should be asking the question: “where are the WMDs now?” You should consider that they just might turn up in this country, delivered by a terrorist.

Enohead, you goddamn ignorant. Your point would be stupid enough if it didn`t involve killing thousands of civillians, but guess what, it does.

Someone said I was generalizing, but I`m not, and I`m sorry if that`s how it sounds. I know there are many Americans who oppose Bush and his stupid imperialistic actions.

I think it`s been more than proved by now that Iraq did not have WMD, and it isn`t such a hard thing to believe in that the US faked evidence and intelligence report to support the invasion (because the best intelligence agency in the world just can`t be >that< bad), even with the UN saying Iraq was being cooperative and that there was absolutley no need for an armed invasion. Nevertheless, the US didn`t give a sh*t about other countries` opinion and blew up the whole country anyway. Now, it`s up to you to clean up the mess - and I`m not saying the troops should get out of Iraq, on the contrary: they should stay and try to rebuild the nation for as long as needed.

I don`t watch a lot of news programs because they try to sell me their version of the truth. What I do get I take with a very uneasy stance. I don`t listen to O`Reilly because of the few episodes I have been forced into watching at my grandmother`s house. When he is losing, he resorts to name-calling. That doesn`t mean that the rest of the Republicans and the Democrats don`t do it as well. There was a Senate race in Florida that was up in the air where both sides were name-calling. I also note that a lot of individuals from out of the U.S. have taken to name calling as well as grouping the U.S. into one giant blob of evil. Nobody in this country agrees. We all hate each other. George Washington once warned that splitting up into poilitical parties would be the end of this country(so I can`t remember or find the exact quote, cut me a break). If everyone would take a more civil tone, then maybe others would be more willing to listen. BTW, Letterman lost the debate, if you can call that 1

Wow. Ok, so they`re terrorists because they kill women and children? Two points. First of all, they are only terrorists because they`re against the US. They are partisans (freedom fighters) to the side that they are on. If you disagree, go take your ignorant self to the dictionary and notice that the only difference between a partisan and a terrorist is the point of view of the person referring to them. In WW2, Polish "partisans" blew up German tanks and soldiers. However, to the Germans, these Polish were terrorists. In reality? They were men and women fighting for what they believed in. Second point: so, an Iraqi man kills a woman. He`s called an abomination to society. However, when a country kills thousands of women and children, it`s called victory. Doubt my words? Take a look at the bombing runs we did on Iraq. Take a look at the current estimated body count. Tell me that all the people the US killed were men, and I`ll call you an ignorant non-nice indi

Enohead, you ignorant slut. You comparing Iraq to two people at school up your ass is ridiculous and worthless. If you make that comparison, Iraq was like a microcosmic fly version of two people and the US like a huge, fat giant. Iraq did nothing to the US or anyone else but their own people. The European community and world was united against terrorism after 9/11 and more than willing to go into Afghanistan and wherever need to get OBL, but when SHRUB BOY decided to go after microcosmic piss ants, the US lost all world support (note to Republicans, don`t list off the few insifnificant countries who still send troops to Iraq--give us a break). Who says we have to be altruistic 100% of the time? We, the US, does! That was our drating justification for war! When Clinton lied, nobody died.

Actually I`ve heard the involvement of both sides regarding the Abramoff scandal quite extensively. You all just see what you want to see. The Republicans stand out more because they happen to be in power, because the number of Republicans involved is greater, and because it is particularly damning for Tom DeLay, who is already in a heap of trouble. And jtc970, Saddam did allow the UN inspectors in. If by "far left web sites" you mean every major news source, then you have some sort of paranoia problem. The Iraq War was fought because it was convenient, not because it was necessary--I think it`s quite obvious that there were much bigger threats out there. Saddam had been basically contained as a threat since the first Gulf War. The Iraq War was thought to be a convenient next step in Bush`s grand "War on Terror", but as it turns out, it was a grossly inefficient use of America`s time and resources.

Democrat Senator from Nevada Harry Reid accepted about $130,000 from the Abramoff group and at least $61,000 from an Abramoff client—the Coushatta Indian tribe. A spokesperson for Harry said that the Abramoff scandal was “a Republican problem” and that Reid would not return any money. Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) accepted over $130,000 from one of the Abramoff groups. Not just a Republican problem is it? The only thing you`ll hear in the media is that its a republican scandal, but democrats were involved too. I guess the media reports what they want and the liberals eat it up.

DrewK, where did you hear that more Democrats benefitted from the scandal? I`ve been intently following this story on C-Span and haven`t heard anything about that. Thanks in advance.

Much as I`d hate to say it, Letterman clearly lost. I`ve no love for O`Reilly - or to put it another way, he`s a shmuck - but he knows how to argue. The trick to stump him, though, is 1. know what you`re talking about and 2. put him on the defensive and hold him accountable for what he says.

I think finally the American public will wake up out of this 9/11 hoorah and start electing Democrats who actually represent the base of America instead of all these non-nice individual republican country club drats that want to rail the lower class.

America wouldnt be in Iraq if Saddam let in UN inspectors. IT is the UN who backed away from the agreement, for the upteenth time, to go in and stop whatever he is hiding. It was America who had the balls to say we cant keep letting him do whatever he is hiding from us.
If France and Russia didnt have money invested in the oil for food scandal then they would have went along with it too, just like they agreed to, but they were afraid of being caught with their hands in the cookie jar.
He had WMD`s remember the whole city he wiped out of his own people? He didnt do it with cookies! He did it with chemical weapons.
Because of the constant UN backdown (fear of being caught making money illegally) he had plenty of time to move/destroy/sell them.
It`s Saddams fault for the war period.

I love how some people from other countries are yelling "America, get out of Iraq!"
Do I think we should be in Iraq? It doesn`t really matter. What am I supposed to do about it? Yell at Bush, not citizens who don`t make the actual decisions. Well, I guess we do. We nominate the same old people over and over and yet we all complain about how things are run around here...
But at least nearly half of the country didn`t want Bush, so in a way everything really sucks because no one can decide what the drat is going on or what needs to be done. There ya are, America. Yay stupidity!

Letterman is great. I think O`Reilly is genuine, but he is a genuine biggot. If you watch his show enough, you will see that he has strong convictions that he sticks to, but often his opinions are based on his own experiences and he doesn`t appear to have the capacity to place himself in someone else`s shoes to gain any sort of understanding or perspective. It was great to see Letterman lace into him a little. Just listen to O`Reilly talk about the ills of hip hop and you will see how ignorant, yet arrogant and sure he is of himself.

O`reilly has critisized the Bush administration many times. The left wing newspapers only come after him because he doesnt agree with their views of gay sex, Child molesters being free to do their deeds or open borders. Let the man have an opinion, isn`t that what freedom is about?

You seem to overlook the fact that Iraq also had history of having terrorist friends, which they could have given them nuclear/biological/chemical weapons. I`m not saying it was right, but the envidence was there.

Okay, so even if there WERE WMDs in Iraq, which there weren`t, but even if there WERE, is that reason for the US to go in and blow the place to hell? Hmmm! What, Iraq is going to send WMDs over to the US on pigeons or maybe on muscrats? Iraq had no history of attacking the US. History shows, actually, the opposite. The US went in to stabilize oil supply and prices and so "W" could finish his daddy`s job. If the US was interested in weapons and concerned for her citizens, why not attack Pakistan (where OSB is believed to be--remember him, the guy responsibly for 9/11), or Korea, who admits making NUCLEAR F*CKING BOMBS? Not going to attack them? Okay, then that PROVES it was for the oil. Just face it. Why else do it?

I don`t like O`Reilly either. It is, however, very unlikely we would be there for oil. The evidence showed that there were wmd`s in Iraq, and Saddam wasn`t cooperating with UN officials, looking like he was hiding something. Suspicious, isn`t it?

And while Letterman admitted he doesn`t watch The Factor, he had this overall assessment: `I have the feeling about 60% of what you say is crap ? I don`t think you represent an objective viewpoint.
O`REILLY: You have to give me an example if you`re going to make those statements.
LETTERMAN: Well, I don`t watch your show, so that would be impossible.
O`REILLY: Then why would you come to that conclusion if you don`t watch the program?
LETTERMAN: Because of things that I`ve read, things that I know.

Newt Gingrich has also commented on David Letterman and O`Reilly. "I thought he (Letterman) was astonishingly lacking in information of any kind. This was like getting in a fight with a guy who has no idea what ring he is in."

Ha. You seem to know a lot about topics you choose to have such a harsh opinion about.

You also seem to like overgeneralizing countries and coming up with an entirly wrong conclusion. I never thought that Americans were the best thing to happen to the world. Prove to me that we we`re there for oil. Go ahead.

Letterman did say on thing right, he is not smart enough to debate, and I really dont think O`Reilly is that great, however, he was very correct in pointing out that Ms. Sheehan is "wrong" She did tell Mark Knoller, a correspondent for CBS radio, that the terrorists in Iraq were "freedom fighters". By saying that she discredits and dishonors her son`s death. I am sorry her son died, but she is way off.

How is that really putting him in his place?

How is O`Reilly supposed to argue with a moron?

Whether the casualities are intended or not by the troops, boredoovomit, killing civilians in war is inevitable. By O`Reilly`s own implication, the troops can also be considered terrorists. And I can`t say I appreciate how you are suggesting the civilians are the cause of their own deaths by saying they were simply `near the targets`.

O`Reilly is so full of hot air. I recall watching his show and having him tell a guest of opposite opinion, (and I`m paraphrasing) "You need to see things my way." I would have had a direct quote, but I looked for the transcript of that particular episode on the Fox News website and couldn`t find it. Hmm.

Good point boredoovomit. Purposely blowing yourself up to kill civilians is NOT free speech, even if you are a `freedom fighter`.

Letterman is a leftist lameo. The rest of you who can`t tell the difference between unintended casualties as the result of civilians being near the targets and scum-sucking-bags who purposely murder civilians -get a clue!

God, that`s Letterman "letting him have it"? He looks more like he`s *taking* it to me. and that`s not even the whole clip...O`Reilly was actually talking sense before the clip started. Way to tell a slanted story. I hate it when people try to edit these clips up to make it look like only one side had any arguments.

I may not agree with O`Reilly in everything, but at least on his website he presented the ENTIRE interview to let people draw their own conclusions (out of character for him, a nice change).

I think they both were bickering like babies on a comedy show. Letterman looked just as retarded. "You`re crap...well...I don`t actually watch your show, but I`ve read you`re crap."

He doesn`t even watch the show to make an opinion? Hell, I at least watched it before I judged it! What a moron! Stop shoving biased crap in my face!

That was posted in the TV forum too and as I said there, you gotta love Letterman for nailing O`Reilly. What a jerk O`Reilly is blasting Cindy Sheehan! O`Reilly is just a jerk. He used to be on our local news as an anchorman and everyone hated him - mainly his co-workers. When he left they blasted him.

At the end when he said "I wont call people who kill women and children Freedom Fighters" I would`ve said "well the allied forces have killed women and children, whether you accept that or not, does that make them terrorists too?"

I agree, the troops should have been removed from Iraq a long time ago, they obviously dont want us occupying their country and are blowing us up etc till we leave, but no, the HillBilly President and the Lapdog Prime Minister wont listen to these drastic measures, so they just let thousands more die, because they want to play God!

Letterman: "I am not smart enough to argue with you point to point".
So then dont argue about it if you don`t know what your speaking about. Idiot!
O`Reily: "BLAH BLAH BLAH".
Me: " Why don`t you both retire already"!

PS: As much as I dislike Bill O`Reiley, Letterman is still just an entertainer. He would do as much good putting on a wig and doing burlesque. Anything to entertain the mindless masses.

Wow. Never ceases to amaze me when so many people speak about stuff that they have no clue about.

Leave the politicing to the professionals. And to the Europeans...stop telling us to get the hell out of there...if you know your history, you will see once again how we are just fixing your f*cking mistakes.

Try looking up how Iraq, Iran, and Saudi Arabia were first split, and why. Nothing more than a French-English scam for oil. Now, when we go to put to rest the religious unrest caused by dividing lines drawn up for the European wealth...we get looked at as greedy. Hell, many European countries didn`t even send soldiers in and expect a cut in the oil.

Know the facts before you open your mouth. Or you will look, and BE, a fool.

Ha, well we can see what the liberal teenagers over here at youthink think about the republicans...

I have to agree with republicans on some things, and I have to agree with liberals on some things. Why does everybody need to go far left or far right all of a sudden? Why did name calling cheap shots take the place of discussing politics?

Well, Letterman obviously had no clue what O`Reilly was talking about.

Even if you don`t agree with what O`Reilly said, you`d have to admit that Letterman is a complete dumbass.

O`Reilly`s an ignorant animal with a mike and camera, and the fact that it`s FoxNews providing him with them isn`t a coincidence. We didn`t need Letterman to lash at him for us to know that (but it`s cool that he did).

Can`t wait for the Republicans to get here. We`ll get to see a whole new bunch of ways for them to brush this off and gloat about what geniuses O`Reilly and Fox News are. For my part, I say- only 60%? And if a talk show host could do that to him, imagine if it were someone who had some idea of what they were talking about

Letterman, for some reason, let that idiot spew his rightist bull crap for far too long before taking a little bit of an offensive--and even then, a very timid one, for Letterman. A shame, because, truthfully, O`Reilly being allowed on the air is akin to allowing that former Iraqi Information Minister on the air--both of them just full of the government`s incredible BS. :-( Next time, kick his ass, Dave!
