O'Reilly: Obama Should Have More Fun Being Big Dog!

Claims president 'not comfortable' exercising power

Bill O'Reilly thinks Barack Obama should enjoy flexing his muscles more. O'Reilly thought the president sounded like a wuss when he said, during the nuclear summit earlier this week, “Whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.” Self-deprecating isn't O'Reilly's style—"I love being big dog!" he crowed on his show last night—and he doesn't think it should be Obama's, either. “He is the most powerful man in the world, but he looks uncomfortable in that role,” O'Reilly says in a clip fielded by Mediaite.

O'Reilly's theory, of course, is that Obama has a problem with power because he's a liberal. "Liberals like the underdog. They often see power as oppressive. His whole background is 'fight the power. Now he's the power!" Which is a role O'Reilly would have no trouble slipping into. "What's not to like about being a superpower?"
