FOXNews, O'Reilly Transcript (10-22-09): Rove Accuses Obama of "Winging it All the Time"

Read the complete transcript of Bill O'Reilly's interview of Karl Rove. Rove responds to Gibbs criticism of Cheney criticism of the White House:

O'REILLY: The other -- you may be right. It's impossible to know that, but the other alternative would be that President Obama is just not up to making these kinds of decisions. He just can't make them for some reason. Is that possible?

ROVE: Well, it could be, but he made a very good decision on March 27th. I went back and reread that speech. It's available at the White House website. It's a pretty good speech. He makes a very specific case as to why we cannot allow a failed state to re-emerge in Afghanistan. Why support of the effort to defeat the Taliban in al Qaeda is absolutely essential. And America's security interests are bound up in it.

So you would think that he would then follow logically on with making the tactical decision to deploy the additional troops his commander says are necessary to achieve those...

O'REILLY: Well, he will. He will. It's a matter of when.

ROVE: But these guys are winging on. You know, I wrote a column earlier this year saying this White House wings it all the time.

Poll: US belief in global warming is cooling

We can thank FOXNews, the recession, and a campaign of disinformation for these numbers. The evidence of global warming is growing. Only ignorance and sinister corporate interests would account for conclusions.

in reference to:

"Just 57 percent think there is solid evidence the world is getting warmer, down 20 points in just three years, a new poll says. And the share of people who believe pollution caused by humans is causing temperatures to rise has also taken a dip, even as the U.S. and world forums gear up for possible action against climate change."
