BILL O'REILLY, HOST: In the "Miller Time" segment tonight, we begin with President Obama's Afghan speech last night, which our pal Dennis watched very closely. And here he is from Southern California. So what did you think?
DENNIS MILLER, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Well, I would say this: Nobody gives a more eloquent or a nuanced acquiescence to the bad guys then our president. That — that is a well-embroidered talent he throws in. But you know, the speaking trick is starting to damn itself. You know, the guy now is on his 50th speech in a row where he's really eloquent about saying absolutely nothing. And when he put an end date on this war, Mr. President, it's a war against radical Islamic fundamental evil. This is not a Yoplait container. There's no end date on this thing. And so listen, he's a — he's a good speaker. He doesn't say anything. And what he does say, you know, Bill, he almost looks embarrassed that America is going to have to save the world. I don't get that. That's a disconnect for me.
O'REILLY: When we were talking with — with Dick Morris at the top of the program, and the "Talking Points Memo" before, we ran the General Patton clip, George C. Scott, one of the great performances of all time. And I noted that, I did that not to trivialize real life and death, as we have in Afghanistan, but to say that the president doesn't seem to be engaged passionately or emotionally, or with a sense of urgency, on a very, very difficult matter. And that's what I picked up. I do not mind the date of withdrawal, because it's not going to happen, particularly if things are going bad. He will leave the troops there. But I did not see the rallying, you know? When you play sports, the coach rallies you. He wasn't rallying anyone, in my opinion.
MILLER: No, I don't — you know what? The only thing I can think is he wants to gaslight the Taliban. I think at this point, they're even sitting there in those caves going, "He can't mean this, can he? He cannot throw down on his own country this frequently." I think they're getting suspicious that he's leading them into a box canyon here. When the Great Satan gives you that "come hither" look, beware the tribe. I think that's what the bad guys are thinking, because they can't even believe. You know, this drip, drip, drip abdication, it's almost like a subliminal surrender. At some point, just pull the white flag. You cannot codify war. When you go, you have to go roman. You have to end these guys. And I think he's being — he believes he's being humanistic, taking this drib and drab approach. But Bill, this sets you up. He moves the big one on the end of it. Because you know if these guys are not reigned in right here, right now, something big is going to happen. And ironically, he's going to be the one in history that might have to recreate the Truman thing, because he's playing its soft up front, and there might be hell to pay on the back end.
O'REILLY: All right. Now, something, I must say, more trivial, is the White House crashers. We just saw them on "Body Language" lying their butts off, about being invited, which they weren't. But I want to know, Miller, if you would prosecute them. I want them charged with some kind of misdemeanor. No. 1, I don't know if annoying is a misdemeanor in Washington, but I would charge them with annoyance, annoying everyone. But they cost us a lot of money. And what they did is just outrageous. How do you see it?
MILLER: I want — I want them to depose her and get her to say she's 44 under oath. Then we've got our charge. You know something? This is exactly what morons do nowadays. They ask for their 15 minutes. They step up with the Warhol waiver. We give them their 15. It's a bad 15, and then they start whining about it. You know something? If there's any justice in the universe, they'd give these morons their own reality show and make them move into a house with the balloon boy's family and the Octomom. Just make them all sit in there for a summer together and stew in each other's insipid juices. I'm just proud of our president. When they showed him, it was just nice to finally see him not bowing to somebody, you know? He could have made these two people — he could have made them czars, Billy.
O'REILLY: Well, I think he thought that they were the leader of Yemen. Here's the leader of Yemen and his wife.
MILLER: She's the peroxide czar. And the reason I think they snuck through the front gate is I think he has the Secret Service so on top of keeping Biden away — far away from them, they just walked right in.
O'REILLY: Watching Biden, not get too close. All right. Now, your pal Nancy Pelosi, I know you're very close. She spends $3,000 last quarter on flowers and runs up big tabs all over the place. And you say what?
MILLER: I don't have a problem with this one. I think Pelosi in the horticulture world is known as a sub-fertilizer. So I think she'd keep these plants alive a long time. The $3,000 bucks for the speaker of the House on flowers for two months doesn't bother me. Giving a billion or a trillion dollars to this woman who looks like she could lose a game of tic-tac-toe with a grub worm, that's what bugs me. If she wants to spend $3K on flowers, fine, have at it. But stay away from the health care plan, honey. You're not armed.
O'REILLY: So it's the larger picture with Ms. Pelosi that you're interested in. You don't want to nitpick her.
MILLER: I'm surprised they don't spend more than $3,000 bucks. But I'll tell you what. She keeps pushing this and she's going to have to send flowers to put on her political grave, because even at some point — I'm thinking of going to her district and setting up residency so I can vote against her.
O'REILLY: Well, you have to vote for Cindy Sheehan. That's who's running against her. But I love the line…
MILLER: Fine with me.
O'REILLY: …she ought to save enough money for the flowers to put on her political grave. I like that line, Miller. It could very well happen.
MILLER: By the way, Billy, did you see the party crashers dressed as cadets at West Point last night? They're everywhere. You've got to give them that.
O'REILLY: Dennis Miller, everybody.
