When Confronted with the Facts on Obama's Proposed Cuts, O'Reilly Yells 'Bull----!'

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly had a "do it live!" moment on his Thursday program, accusing guess Alan Colmes of lying about President Obama's proposed budget cuts.

During the interview, O'Reilly insisted that Obama hasn't proposed specific cuts to replace the sequester, despite the fact the President has proposed $400 billion in cuts to federal health spending:

O'Reilly: He has to say, here are the programs that are going to go down, here's how we're going to reform medicare and social security, and the man refuses to do it.

Colmes: That's not true.

O'Reilly: Now I'm getting teed off at you. Give me one damn program he said he'd cut.

Colmes: He has cut entitlements..

O'Reilly: Not entitlements! One program!

Colmes: Why do you want to yell at me?

O'Reilly: Bullshit! Because you're lying!

White House Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri wrote back in February that Obama has "already reduced the deficit by over $2.5 trillion" and has "laid out a specific plan to do more."

Included in the post were specific proposals to cut $930 billion from discretionary and mandatory spending as well as raise $580 billion in revenues, an avenue Republicans in Congress are unwilling to consider:
