    Or we could just cut social spending.

    Except I don't see any evidence that income has gone up one iota.

    First of all a 1.5% tax increase is a 1.5% tax increase anyway you slice it. And second of all where is the evidence for income rising?

    Or you know we could cut out pork, bailing out corporate fat cats who failed due to their own corruption and business mismanagement, we could cut out billions of aid to organized crime syndicates; such as, ACORN, we could stop talking about a public option which will raise the deficit by untold trillions of dollars, or we could actually start to tackle the issue of entitlements and turn non-discretionary spending which causes the vast majority of the national deficit in the first place.

    The only way to actually reduce the national debt would be for some serious entitlement reform as non-discretionary spending accounts for appx. 60% of the annual budget more than interest on the debt and discretionary spending (including national defense) combined.

    That's a tough interview? O'Reilly is a populist. That's the easiest interview on Fox.

    Why does him being a "populist" make it easier?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
