Bill O'Reilly Says Rep. Paul's Iran Views 'Dangerous'

Tuesday, 22 Nov 2011 11:22 AM

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Monday described Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul’s stance on Iranian nuclear proliferation as “dangerous.”
O’Reilly and Fox correspondent Brit Hume dissected Paul’s appearance on “Face the Nation,” during which host Bob Schieffer hammered the Texas congressman for believing that the U.S. government had something to do with the 9/11 attacks and that the way to solve the Iran nuclear question is, in Schieffer’s words, “to be nicer to Iran’s leaders.”

“We have 12,000 diplomats. I’m suggesting we ought to use some of them,” answered Paul.

“There is no way on this earth that Iran is going to respond to . . .  somebody being nicer to them, if that person is an American,” said O’Reilly. He said Paul “makes a moral equivalency between Iran and Israel,” and that he supports Iran’s right to have nuclear weapons. 
“This is dangerous stuff . . . if you have power,” said O’Reilly, who then asserted that Paul has no chance of winning the nomination.

O’Reilly and Hume blasted Paul’s libertarianism as isolationist and unrealistic, but acknowledged that a core segment of Republican voters will continue to stand behind him.
