Skip to comments.Obama in No Spin Zone for the first time with Bill O'Reilly
Posted on 09/04/2008 9:24:28 PM PDT by PureSolace
So I just saw the first part of O'Reilly's 4 part mini series I like to call, "Obama: Unscripted"
Check Out the video at this link!
I know many of you dislike O'Reilly and I understand you have your reasons, but check out this video, and let me know what you honestly think.

My favorite quote is probably, "Uhh, uhm uhhh uh uh up, uhmmm."
Please share with us your thoughts!
No way Obama went on without screening the questions or putting certain subjects “off limits”
That was far too short; they couldn’t really get into it. Obama didn’t put his foot in his mouth, but he didn’t say much of anything either.
We need better diplomacy, that’s all. And Obama will be a better diplomat because of his vast diplomatic experience (and the fact that 300,000 Germans worship him).
I never watch blowhard O’Reilly and his trotting out the leftist, America-hating candidate won’t chang that.
BOR IS A PANDERING POPULIST WITH
NARY A CONSERVATIVE BONE IN HIS
BODY AND HIS NOSE IMPLANTED
SQUARELY IN BARRY'S BUTTOCKS!
he is evasive. He can’t give a straight answer, and he doesn’t always look Bill in the eye. And he is lying at times. He also look agitated and nervous
for a minute it looked like Obama was going to come out strong, but then he stared weasling again.
O’Reilly is a poor examiner/interviewer. He will ask a “controversial question” such as bring up Ayers; BO deals with it and next thing you know O’Reilly is off on another question. This is how he dealt with Senator Clinton. In fact, Clinton supporters saw him as having helped her position.
It’s not enough to simply ask an issue question. You have to cross-examine the answer and scrutinize it.
Oh, wait, I forgot about the surge comment. Obama admitted it worked, though he wouldn’t give anyone credit for it.
My favorite part was when O’Reilly and Obama had competing “No, no, no”’s. Directly after that, Obama went on to briefly make the least sense I’ve ever heard him make.
If that is what qualifies him, then david hasselhoff should be president.
You know that Bill O’Reilly gave him the questions ahead of time or he would never have agreed to the interview.
“Its not enough to simply ask an issue question. You have to cross-examine the answer and scrutinize it.”
I have to say, O’Reilly chased him down on the surge. That part was well-handled.
Plus he had that kick-ass car that could bash a few terrorist skulls...
Kit: “I’ve located the mosque, Michael. Preparing to deploy the rpgs.”
Hussein looks like a college senior on his first job interview. He just talks in circles with no real experience.
It doesn't even matter what Obama says, he'll just flip flop the following day when speaking with someone else.
That Chicago Thug will never have an ounce of credibility with me. He lost it long ago.
I refrain from watching the Gasbag and his salacious lust for Obama.
Ol' Blowviator has the hots for the ratings and subsequent advertising sales that come with an Obama interview, and Laura Ingraham has called The Gasbag on it numerous times.
She sees right through him, and that is why I like her.
Gasbag also calls Conservative talk show hosts (like Sean Hannity and Mark Levin) a bunch of "pinheads," and Laura Ingraham gets the brunt of his tantrums.
The fact that O'Reilly has to get ugly toward Ms. Ingraham at :28 tells me that Gasbag is a defensive little punk who lashes out at Conservatives if they question his approach:
Aljazeera has thier spin of the interview up on youtube.
As a mom and the wife of a soldier currently serving in Iraq, I was trying to reassure myself that, if we loose this election, it won't be *so* bad. We'll survive it. America will prevail and life will go on.
What I saw made my stomach roll. This man is a naive adolescent. He's another Carter. If he's elected president, this world will go the hell in a handbasket with a quickness. He makes Clinton look like a master statesman in comparison.
As a Republican woman I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm seriously wishing we were running against Hillary Clinton. Yeah she's a socialist, but she's not stupid. I don't love her, but our nation would survive 4 years with her as our Queen.
With Hussein, I'm really not sure. If we still have a democratically controlled congress, I'm going to be really scared.
We MUST win this election. Period.
Saddam Hussein had NOTHING TO DO WITH AL-QAEDA??? Is this guy from the same dimension as I am??
"And as I consequence, we ended up misdirecting our resources."
What a load.
"They're all part of various terrorist networks that we have to sit down and destroy..."
OK, so it WAS a good thing we went into Iraq...
"But they may not all be part and parcel of the same ideology."
So they are DIFFERENT terrorists that we have to destroy, but we shouldn't have "misdirected" our resources by... destroying them.
I'm getting a headache.
Later O'Reilly asks Hussein if he'd prepare for a military option against Iran. His response?
After much stumbling, muttering and what sounded like choking on a chicken bone, he threw out a Democratic talking point... very quotable. O'Reilly called BS. He finally managed this: "It's a secret. I can't tell you because it's a secret known only to me because I'm so very, very special and I might one day be president of the United States. But there is one thing I *can* tell you: Europe will save us. That's right. Europe could've saved us from Iran all along, but the last administration was too stupid to play nice with them."
He then said, "Sanctions! Sanction!"
That's right, Obama. Ahmadinejad is going to fold with sanctions and DIPlomacy. After all, he'd be insane to not want a peaceful solution in the long run. And we all know he's not an egomaniacal dictator who wants to summon the true Messiah by starting WWIII. Right
O'Reilly would do well on a tough question or call him on some BS, then fold like a cheap napkin and didn't follow up on anything.
I have no hope for Hussein. He's NOT going to be a strong leader. He's a childish ideologist and not a realist. And that naive attitude is dangerous in today's world.
“I can’t tell you because it’s a secret”
That’s right, I forgot about that, considering that it was buried in a mound of jibber-jabber. It could have sounded like Obama was saying that he doesn’t want to lose the element of surprise. But to me, he answered the Iran question like a conservative Sumpreme Court candidate when the Senate Committee asks him how he’ll decide an abortion case. “I’ll decide that case on its merits when the time comes.”
Yup. Spoken like a true lawyer.
i think it was part 1 of 2 parts... i could be wrong...
I think he knew the questions before hand. Can we pressure O Reilly to at least be honest about that? It’s clear that rght out of the gate Obama knew the questions. O Reily also, didn’t press much.
Let’s see the next interviews as they should have some territory uncovered.
And Oreilly shouted Obama is qualified to be President !!!!!
He is an ASS
“Barack, I don’t think you should be going this fast.”
“Shut up, Mr. Feeney.”
I think, though, that O’Reilly didn’t let Obama get by with his standard rhetoric - he actively pursued answers to questions, which generally don’t get answered by Obama - rather he slip-slides around the issue. I was surprised at how aggressive O’Reilly was. I haven’t been a fan of his, but I think he was a lot more aggressive than Obama anticipated. I’ll bet this will be the last time he does an interview with O’Reilly....
It should be interesting to see/hear the next 3 segments.
As usual, Obama came out with his “diplomacy” theory - we should “work more closely with Europe,” who is in a terrible state due to their consistently acquiescing to Islamists. Uhhu, like America really wants to follow the European model...
And, as usual, Obama couldn’t give America credit for what we’ve done. It’s all the Iraqis. No matter what Obama says about America, he consistently puts us down - esp in front of other countries. Our achievements have been “luck,” or due to another nation(s). One never gets the sense that Obama is proud to be an American, or truly supports the American way.
Not to mention, Obama speaks of how Islam has been distorted by certain groups - it’s clear he doesn’t have a good working knowledge of what the Qur’an says. Perhaps he ought to reread it - I know one forgets things they learned as a child.
SQUARELY IN BARRY’S BUTTOCKS
He has Patty and Selma’s vote.
Obama was for using Military action to defend America before he was against it.... Typical liberal jibberish... There is no way that anyone can take this guy serious... His credibility is shot... He has Never taken on the Radical Left on any issue his judgement is no better then Reverend Wrights. He expects to be President Simply because he is Black and if you dont agree with that you are accused of stamping out MLK’s Dream.
I line up with McCain on the issues maybe 50-60%. I wish it were more. I line up with B.O. 0% on the issues. Palin I like, Biden I can't stand. On balance, then, that tilts me towards McCain/Palin.
I keep hearing people say that they think Bamalamadingdong is "likable" or is an "interesting guy". I find nothing "likable" about a man who opposes providing care to newborns who survive the abortionist's knife, and I find nothing "interesting" about his collectivist/socialist ideas and policies which are nothing more than the same, old, tired, failed liberal policies of big government and tax-and-spend, but repackaged in a newer, empty suit.
Forget Hasselhoff and MacGyver.
Elect Magnum, P.I.! He’s a Navy veteran and former Vietnam POW, but unlike McCain, he has a sexy mustache.
Make Hasslehoff Ambassador to Germany and Macgyver Secretary of Getting Out of Locked Rooms. The rest of the cabinet can be filled by Simon and Simon, the A-Team, and Angela Landsbury.
Doesn't that qualify him to control our taxpayer dollars?
Sarcasm, of course!
