Talking Points Memo: Is Traditional America Gone For Good?
In last night's Talking Points Memo, Bill O'Reilly addressed the question of whether traditional America has disappeared for good following the re-election of President Obama.
The segment stemmed out of a post-election comment by Dennis Miller on The O'Reilly Factor, where the comedian said that he believes the America that many adults grew up in is now gone.
"I disagree with him," said O'Reilly, adding that he believes traditional America can make a comeback, but "it will take a very special person to make that happen."

After breaking down some of the key statistics from last week's presidential election - including how Hispanic, Catholic, and church-going Americans voted - O'Reilly said what it comes down to is that Mitt Romney failed to highlight the secular progressive movement and how it negatively affects the country.
He addressed the secular progressive movement's attitudes toward entitlement spending, abortion, and the legalization of marijuana.
"I believe the majority of Americans can be persuaded that the far left is a dangerous outfit, bent on destroying traditional America and replacing it with a social free-fire zone that drives dependency and poverty. ... Maybe four years from now, what's really at stake in America will finally be heard loud and clear," said O'Reilly.
