Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Tuesday blasted the Democratic Party for paying tribute to former Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) in a video at their convention in Charlotte because he said the “whole purpose is to club Romney.”
In their seven-minute tribute video at the Democratic National Convention, the party began with footage of former President Bill Clinton but quickly moved to clips of the late senator destroying Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in a 1994 Senate race debate.
O’Reilly asserted to liberal Fox News personality Alan Colmes that “it was in bad taste to use a dead guy to club Romney.”
“No, the purpose wasn’t to club Romney,” Colmes explained. “The purpose was to pay tribute to Kennedy.”
“No, no, no, no!” O’Reilly exclaimed. “It was to club Romney, that’s why they used that whole thing. They could have used that to have Kennedy’s accomplishments and achievements and all that. They cut out about two and a half minutes for a dead guy to club Romney.”
“This is like a vampire movie — rising from the dead to attack Mitt Romney!” the Fox News host added.
Watch this video from Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor via The Huffington Post, broadcast Sept. 4, 2012.
