O'REILLY: Thanks for staying with us, I'm Bill O'Reilly. In the "Miller Time" segment tonight, a new ABC News poll says even though Americans believe President Obama botched the Libyan situation badly, his overall job approval rating still stands at 47 percent, the same number, 47 percent disapprove.
Joining us now from Chicago, the sage of Southern California who's in the Midwest, Dennis Miller. So, why does so many Americans continue to support Mr. Obama.
DENNIS MILLER, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: By the way, Billy, the guy who drives you to and from work every day, what's his name again, Zen Mode?
MILLER: What is he, Israeli.
O'REILLY: Yes, but I have to deal with the people who are throwing rocks at the car.
MILLER: The zen mode.
You, the zen mode. Get out of here.
O'REILLY: Come on, Miller.
MILLER: You have a driver.
O'REILLY: I know but I have to deal with the chaos. Don't you get that.
MILLER: I'm not sure, OK. All right. So, you're Mr. Mellow.
O'REILLY: Miller, let me just give it to you. There are no tinted windows like out in Santa Barbara where you live. They're not allowed here in New York. People see me in the back of the car, OK. Hey.
MILLER: Ailes -- Ailes doesn't allow you to drive. You're the mother stone over there.
You'd be in fights every day, they'd have no show.
O'REILLY: I've got to get a helicopter. I've got to get a helicopter, that's what I need. All right.
MILLER: Oh, you are a piece of work.
MILLER: Barack Obama's approval rating.
MILLER: I wouldn't say -- obviously, to me, the president is not a man for all seasons.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
But he certainly is a man for this season. I think he's completely emblematic of his time. One thing I've noticed about young people -- and I meet him through my kids, or I meet him when I'm not performing, it's a very --

-- non-judgmental generation. They don't judge. So, it doesn't surprise me that Obama can still have good approval ratings. If you poll individual topics, I think you'll find that a lot of people don't like the way it's going.
But if you ask them to judge the president, they'd go, "Well, I'm not a person to judge. I don't judge."
O'REILLY: All right, and that's an interesting observation. Do you think that will hold if a Republican gets nominated or gets selected. Because, certainly, --
O'REILLY: -- they judge Bush and Cheney all day long.
MILLER: Yes but, Billy, everybody seems to be thinking -- everybody always says, "Well, if we stay on this road," and I don't. We've gone past the point.
We've fallen through the looking glass last November 6th. A man who posited himself as a world beater, and even his devotees whenever he gets in a vine say, "Well, he's helpless against that."
A helpless world beater, a man at the center of it all who perpetually claims he's out of the loop on any given issue was elected the leader by the American people. I get it, it's America 180.
O'REILLY: I think that that's what it's about. I think that they don't want to admit --
O'REILLY: -- they who voted for Barack Obama, they made a mistake. I think they're frustrated with Syria, ObamaCare, the economy, the national debt.
