I'm still waiting for him to apologize when he stated he'd never believe anything from the Bush administration if there weren't WMD found in Iraq.

That's right, O'Reilly, you really should check the FACTS before you make statements. Is he now going to ask these Republicans why they did not attend? No, he will be silent on the whole thing from now on. The sad thing is those that listen or watch Fox will still believe that the Republicans weren't invited.

What could possibly more prove the racism and intolerance of the GOP than not having one single Republican celebrate the half-century mark of civil rights??? It's astoundingly foolish, bigoted, and short-sighted of a party whose stated goal is to be "more inclusive". Such a fine demonstration of just the opposite!

Big Bill said he was wrong about this which is commendable but as others here have mentioned why isn't he all over the GOP for being so obvious in their bigotry? Maybe he's afraid if he did so he'd lose his cushy job spouting other half-truths.

He's right. The republicans should have been there. MLK was a republican.

Then the goptp wonders why most minorities vote DFL. They do not show up for historic events.

Wow, all members of Congress were invited? And NO Republicans showed up? Way to reach out to minorities to rebuild the party Republicans.

At least he apologized for his error. I'm still waiting for MSNBC talking head, Al Sharpton to apologize for making the ludicrous claim that George Zimmerman stalked and killed Trayvon Martin now that we have learned beyond any doubt that race was not a factor and Mr. Zimmerman acted in self defense after being brutally assaulted by the violent teen.
