Dick Morris, an “analyst” for Fox News often featured on the right-wing show “The O’Reilly Factor,” has fast become a caricature of a true analyst thanks to his string of irrational and idiotic predictions. Morris, however, has disgraced the word analyst with his many predictions that have missed the mark and his blatant and unprofessional on-air campaigning for Republican candidates during the recent general election. The Web site Media Matters for America recently chronicled many of Morris’ most egregious shortcomings and outright failures as an analyst. One of the most recent puzzling and idiotic comments that seems to prove his obsessive anger with the Clintons was on full display during a recent episode of “The O’Reilly Factor” with right-wing commentator Bill O’Reilly.
Here is Media Matters for America’s summaryof its article:
On The O’Reilly Factor, Dick Morris predicted that Sen. Hillary Clinton would challenge President-elect Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination in the 2012 presidential election. But some of Morris’ past attempts at political prognostication have been wildly off the mark. Morris’ latest prediction is also inconsistent with his assertion in April that “[o]bviously, if Obama beats [Sen. John] McCain, Hillary is out of the picture until 2016.”
So, in addition to pretty much contradicting himself, he is obviously working from the right wing of the political spectrum fighting with blind rage against the Democrats. In some ways, however, Morris is a bit crafty in that he is trying to plant the seed that the Democrats are going to blow themselves up. Morris is continuing to push this extremist right-wing stuff on the American people (many of which are drunk off it daily on O’Reilly’s show). Be sure to check out Media Matters for America’s list of the many failed predictions and outlandish statements of Morris.
