Bill O'Reilly: Romney Better 'Snap Out Of It'

Posted: Updated:

Bill O'Reilly addressed one of Mitt Romney's biggest issues on Friday night.

"The governor has not really been robust, he hasn't been Clint Eastwood out there," he said on 'The O'Reilly Factor'. "He's been a little touchy-feely, a little bit back on his heels ... he better snap out of it by the time the debates roll around."

O'Reilly and his guests--The Five's Greg Gutfeld and Imus in the Morning Executive Producer Bernard McGuirk-- had been discussing the fallout from a leaked video that showed Romney telling donors that most Obama voters are "dependent on government."

"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what," Romney had said. "All right -- there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing."

McGuirk criticized Romney for holding a press conference about the video.

"He looked contrite, timid, indecisive. I mean, Anthony Weiner showed more confidence and less contrition during his resignation press conference."
