I remember when the French government folded and had to recharter their banks after the last boycott. http://www.ncaabbs.com/forums/memphis/phpbb/images/smiles/01-wingedeagle.gif

You know, often times a boycott is a gesture of protest and not a serious attempt to bankrupt an entire country.

that'd be fine if he hadn't said:

"If you don't believe me or think it doesn't matter, why don't you give the French ambassador a call."

while he was saying this, his talking point to his right said "Ask France if you don't think a Factor boycott will matter."

He believes that he is doing more than just a gesture.

He's more delusional than usual these days. Ever since Colbert started doing his schtick better than old Falafel Bill ever dreamed of.

while he was saying this, his talking point to his right said "Ask France if you don't think a Factor boycott will matter."Oh, his Factor boycott against France was real effective. Check this out:

From the July 14 edition of FOX News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor:

O'REILLY: [H]ere's the update on the boycott. ... French exports to the USA have fallen by more than a billion dollars from 2001 to 2003.

Media Matters:

"Census figures prove that O'Reilly's alleged boycott has had no measurable effect on French exports to the United States. Though O'Reilly is correct that Census figures show French exports were about $1.2 billion less in 2003 than in 2001, the decline in that period is unrelated to O'Reilly's supposed boycott. While there was a $2.2 billion decrease between 2001 and 2002 -- probably due to the economic downturn -- O'Reilly did not call for the boycott until March 2003. French exports were actually $979 million greater in 2003 than in 2002."

And sometimes they're self important marketing gimmicks to make your dopey audience believe you wield more influence than you actually do.

Bill O'Reilly is a deluded airbag and someday he and Fox News will crash and burn simply because "the truth will ultimately prevail" and "what goes around comes around."
