VIDEO: Dennis Miller with Bill O'Reilly discussing Obama's challenge to the Tea Partiers
DENNIS MILLER: I don't like the laughing at the tea-bag people... Let's let these 250 000 Americans... have their day. You don't have to make fun of them man...
BILL O'REILLY:... I think Barack Obama in his adult life has never been criticised ever... Now he is. Particularly on Fox News. Some of the commentators just don't like liberal politicians, there's no doubt. And he doesn't like it, he's not used to it. He's used to people saying "Yes Barack, Yes. You're the greatest guy".
