Bill O’Reilly invited Fox contributor Bernie Goldberg on the Factor Monday night to give his take on whether President Obama‘s critics criticize him for “noble reasons.” The conversation was sparked by comments made by Dan Rather this weekend about Obama’s challenge of compromising with Republicans who just “want to cut his heart out and throw his liver to the dogs.”
Goldberg pointed out that Rather himself was “brutal” on President Richard Nixon and didn’t think there was anything special about Obama in this regard. “I don’t remember my good personal friend Dan Rather worrying about not only Richard Nixon but also George W. Bush when liberal Democrats were out to figuratively, and maybe otherwise, cut out his heart out and throw his liver to the dogs.”
For his part, O’Reilly said “they always carry it into the race area” with Obama, “which we are not even going to bother with today.” Nevertheless, he asked Goldberg to give his opinion on whether the polarization has gotten worse in recent years.
“I think we have become so polarized,” Goldberg said, “that if you are a Republican and you side with Barack Obama, you’re excoriated for, in effect, giving ammunition to the enemy. I don’t think that’s good for America.”
