The Huff-Po link tries to make it sound like O'Reilly is actually advocating the hunting down and hanging of Mrs.Obama. The best part is that in the very same article they write about what O'Reilly said, "...that if someone might be (and she wasn't) relating a level of dissatisfaction with America's present status..." So they effectively call out O'Reilly for interpreting Michelle's comments wrong, and then go and interpret O'Reilly's comments in a completely asinine way. All within a single article. I'm impressed.

Is HuffPo claiming that the party out of power is NOT dissatisfied with the current state of the nation? That they are NOT dissatisfied with the current administration? If you want to argue the elegance, or lack thereof, of O'Reilly's phraseology that's one thing. But to claim that Democrats are not dissatisfied with Republican rule doesn't make one minute of sense.
The most surprising link on that topic is the one from, of all places, the LA Times.

Just now on "The Radio Factor," BOR explained and clarified what he said on Tuesday. That should close the book on any controversy the BOR haters were making.

I like this part of the LATime article:
"For the first time in my adult lifetime I'm really proud of my country." The "really" part got dropped in some versions, which changes the meaning considerably
Not sure how the word "really" makes such a considerable difference. My dictionary says really means "In actual truth or fact."

John: What's even better is that the LA Times is wrong.
Michelle gave TWO speeches.. not sure if it was the same day or not.. but at the first speech she didn't say "Really".. it was at the second speech that she said "Really".

That's correct; she said it two different ways. I spotted a blue blog that claimed "Fox" had sneakily edited out the "really". They used the other time she spoke (including "really") as "proof". It was a pretty weak charge, given that the clip they used to demonstrate the "doctored" Fox version was a clip not from Fox, but from C-SPAN!
