Bill O’Reilly on Huckabee Christmas Ad

I have been working twelve hour days these last few days so I have missed the first run of The Factor and have had to watch the 10pm re-airing. I’m glad I took the time to watch this evening.

Bill O’Reilly did a segment this evening about Huckabee’s Christmas ad. O’Reilly did not understand why everyone was making such a fuss over it. He seemed to believe that it was just a nice gesture of good will during this Christmas season. The Republican and Democratic commentators he had on with him both believed that Huckabee had slightly more sinister things in mind. The democrat stated that she felt Huckabee was trying to paint himself as “more Christian” and the Republican said that the ad might hurt him outside of Iowa.

I disagree with both of them. At most, I feel that Huckabee was trying to draw a contrast between himself and other candidates. His Christmas ad will allow him to keep his face in the media without drawing the ire of the public for being overly negative during the Christmas season. I don’t believe he was trying to say he is a better Christian than anyone.

Huckabee has so far had the most talked about ads this election cycle. His Chuck Norris ad has given him a lot of free press and the Christmas ad has done the same. Those who are trying to sink Huckabee by speaking out against this ad are having their plans back fire. Most of the American public are going to see the Huckabee ad as a nice gesture and will be appreciative that a candidate is willing to air such a positive message over Christmas. Those in the media who are critisizing him are giving him a lot of free air time and are also going to alienate the American people because, I believe, most will side with Huckabee on this one.
