Bill O’Reilly: Democrats Vote For Free Stuff, Republicans Put The Country First (VIDEO)

Declaring that the United States is “much weaker” than it was six years ago, Bill O’Reilly can only think of one reason why anyone would vote for a Democrat in two weeks.

“The answer is emotion,” O’Reilly explained on his show Monday night before pivoting to the Democratic Party’s success with women voters.

Because the Republicans haven’t put forth a candidate to effectively refute accusations that the party “favors the rich and is anti-woman,” O’Reilly said, virtually every poll has shown that “American women continue to favor Democrats, no matter what happens to the nation.”

Put it all together, and O’Reilly’s description of Democratic voters in 2014 basically mirrors how so many Republicans (namely Mitt Romney) viewed President Obama’s supporters in 2012. It’s tough to compete with the guy offering free stuff.

“If you’re voting for the country, then you would be less likely to support the Democrats,” O’Reilly surmised. “But if you’re voting just for yourself and what you can get from the government, the option the Democrats provide, continued entitlements, is attractive.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
