In March 2003, Bill O'Reilly called on all Americans to boycott the use of French Products because of France's disagreement with the United States decision to invade Iraq (those French really blew THAT one).
Through the years O'Reilly has claimed his boycott of France has cost the country "billions of dollars" (O'Reilly himself quoted that figure in the non-existent "Paris Business Review").
Now, because the country recently elected a pro-American government, O'Reilly has decided France has suffered enough and has magnamimously lifted his boycott.
|From O'Reilly Factor on Monday, May 7, 2007:
Funny thing is the United States has increased spending on French Imports during the three years of the boycott (from $29 Billion in 2003 to $37 Billion in 2006), but we're sure the numbers will be much larger next year, oui?
