“The white establishment is now the minority,” FOX TV host Bill O'Reilly has said. “And the voters, many of them, feel that the economic system is stacked against them and they want stuff.”
“The demographics are changing,” he said. “It’s not a traditional America anymore.”
O’Reilly claimed 50 percent of the voting public are people who “want stuff. They want things. And who is going to give them things? President Obama. He knows it, and he ran on it.”
O’Reilly criticized Mitt Romney for his hurricane response: “[Hurricane Sandy] just wiped the governor’s campaign off the map for five days. Five days Mitt Romney disappeared from the national debate and from the media headline,” O’Reilly said. “Now, it's interesting, because I told their campaign, and this is not self-aggrandizement, but I was speaking to some of the Romney people and I said do you have any idea that you are now invisible? Alright, no one is paying attention to you.”
Obama, on the other hand, was seen out there trying to help victims, O’Reilly said.
“I don't think that registered on the Romney people. But, in the exit polls tonight, that is a factor that President Obama looked bipartisan and presidential during that storm,” he said.
He said the Romney campaign took no chances. “They didn't go on talk radio. They didn't go on national programs outside of football game interviews which mean nothing. They thought that they did well enough in the debates to roll in. And, you know what? They were right, except for Hurricane Sandy.”
