Skip to comments.Obama Lies and Evades in O'Reilly Interview
Posted on 02/03/2014 5:59:27 PM PST by rightwingerpatriot
As millions of Americans were doing on Sunday, I was preparing to watch the Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos. I had hoped to be able to tune out politics for a single day, but, alas, this was not the case. Bill O'Reilly scored an interview with President Obama that was shown before the game. I made the mistake of listening to it and therefore upset my stomach before the spicy wing invasion could begin. Listening to Obama lie, dodge, and blame everybody else under the sun really leeched some of the enjoyment out of the day for me.
When Bill O'Reilly announced that he had an interview with Obama, I didn't think that nothing of value would occur during it. The reason is that why I like O'Reilly, I do think he's way too soft on Obama. My guess for why that is so is that his ego had been stroked in the past by getting some interviews with Obama. My gut feeling is that O'Reilly isn't a conservative, but is, in fact, a moderate. He never lets an opportunity go by to point out bad behavior by some whackjob on the right as some weird mechanism to say that both the left and the right can be extreme. (While there are some unreasonable extremists on the right, I can firmly say that there are a far, far more lot of them on the left.) Anyway, that was why I was surprised when O'Reilly pressed Obama on Benghazi, the IRS scandal, and ObamaCare. I do have to give him credit for that.
The sad thing was watching the President of the United States continue to lie to the American public. When he said that there wasn't even "a smidgeon of corruption" in the IRS over the targeting of conservative groups, my rage level went through the roof. Obama whined that if there were any corruption, then Congress would have found it during their hearings. He, naturally enough, leaves out the fact that Congress has been stonewalled by Congress and that Congress was waiting for the Department of Justice to act. What happened? The DOJ used an Obama donor to spearhead the investigation and the decision was made to file no charges against anybody.
Obama spent some time playing his favorite pastime, the blame game. He whined that Fox News is the one keeping scandals like Benghazi and the IRS alive. It's those mean ol' racists at Fox and their viewers who dare to criticize the emperor. Just watching him waffle and actually say that he holds everyone accountable is rage and nausea-inducing. The only thing Obama holds accountable are his political opponents, of whom he uses the agencies of the federal government to harass and destroy. He has the audacity to call O'Reilly unfair to him just because he actually asks tough questions. The entire mainstream media has their noses so far up Obama's butt that they won't even ask whether he prefers butter or jam on his toast in the morning. The interview truly captured the arrogance and narcissism of Obama.
I just wanted a day where I wouldn't see or hear Obama and his cronies fouling the airwaves with their lies, but I guess that was just too much to ask. Even flipping to the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet caused me pain as they had a clip of Michelle Obama during that. Man, the Obamas can't get their faces plastered on media enough for their egos. The next Super Bowl will probably have Obama doing the coin toss. Sigh...
Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.
Obama was shocked that O’Reilly brought up Benghazi and the IRS..what did Obama expect, his ass to be kissed like everyone else in the media does..Obama really does believe targeting Conservatives and causing the deaths of 4 Americans is no big deal..If Obama had an R next to his name he would have been impeached a long time ago
I think O’Reillys comment on it tonight was right on - Obama doesn’t think issues like Benghazi and IRS scandal are very important, and it annoys him when Fox News keeps bringing them up while the other (properly behaved) news media know to just ignore them. It says a lot about how truly uninformed and out of touch Obama is. I also think Obama is very good at evading and ignoring things he doesn’t want to address, and trying to turn the tables instead, like he did on O’Reilly treating him “unfairly”. By saying BOR was unfair, he drew him off into a side issue completely unrelated to the original question. Rope-a-dope.
Had to laugh at the “extended interview” tonight when BOR asks he’s the most liberal President of all time, and Obama is noddding his head up and down and grinning while saying, no, he’s not. The body language maven would have had a heyday with that clip!
For the same reason a dog licks himself.
Because he can.
Did OReilly tell Obama that the spin stops here?
When O’Reilly was praising Obama for what he does with the troops(Please, like Obama gives a crap about our military) Obama kept on putting his eyes down, he was talking about our military and how supposedly he cares about them but kept on putting his eyes down, like what, we were all gonna notice he is full of BS..see in Obama’s world, he is used to having an adoring media, kiss his ass every second they get, he is not used to being asked anything, about anything, except about sports scores and who he thinks will win the Oscars..faced with tough questions about Benghazi and the IRS he just laughs it off “Oh that Fox News” please, if we had a decent media in this country instead of Pravda we would already know the truth about BOTH
The guy is such a tap dancer but he won’t be dancing next month.
He has more lies than a crack heads rolodex of excuses.
That made my blood boil, too. I also got a big laugh when he was asked about accountability for Sibelius and others in the O-Care rollout disaster, and he said, "We have accountability all up and down the line."
there is an OFF switch
Clown Prince nobama is a reprobate. The bum should be in prison for his crimes against Free America.
no disagreement from me. true words are true words
The funniest part was where Obama claimed that “he too” painted houses in the Summer to get money for college, after he had assumed O’Reilly had gotten student loans for college. Bill shot back that he had painted houses in order to earn money for tuition, and of course the Liar In Chief couldn’t help himself from claiming he had done the same thing.
it’s the Chicago way
The most disgusting thing I noticed in this interview was 0bummerresponding to O’Reilly’s questions either laughing, smiling or smirking while answering very serious questions about: Bengazi, the IRS scandal and the loss of freedom and wealth under the 5 years of his administration.
That was sickening to me. As someone 78 years old, I do not understand the mindset of the generations from the 60’s on to the present.
I can say that had this type of serious interview been conducted , say in the 50’s, the President (D or R) would not have given flippant, disrespectful to the public answers.
I didn’t even look for it.
Since Obama is still in the WH I guess BOR didn’t get Obama to resign.
