Bill O’Reilly Offers to Broker Debt Ceiling Negotiations

It’s so unlike Bill O’Reilly to offer to throw himself into the middle of the spotlight, but he has done just that:

Bill O’Reilly, the Fox News host who White House press secretary Jay Carney has singled out as a conservative voice of reason, offered Thursday to go to D.C. and referee the debt talks.

“So now I am offering to broker the debt compromise. I’ll go down there. I’m ready to answer the call. Because I’m looking out for you. Not some crazed ideology or political party,” O’Reilly said.

One thing’s for sure — O’Reilly would bring some much needed even-temperedness to the negotiations….
