Topics: Video, Bill O'Reilly, Juan Williams, Fox News, Supreme Court, John Roberts, DoMA, Proposition 8, Obamacare,

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly was not too happy about the Supreme Court’s rulings on DOMA and Proposition 8 (and, for that matter, Obamacare), railing against how “the Supreme Court has put aside its mandate to uphold the Constitution,” and has “morphed into a political organization,” finding “loopholes” in the Prop 8 and Obamacare cases to get the desired result.
