PRESIDENT OBAMA: We ended up asking the wealthiest Americans to do a little bit more in terms of taxes. Going back to rates that would still be lower than they were under Ronald Reagan, our deficit problems would be solved.

Yeah, as if pulling a fast one on the willing accomplices is hard to do.

Remarkable.

He made the problem, but it’s NEVER his fault.

I have not read or heard of ratings for this love fest last night. What was his pull? Wasn’t the Giants and Cowboys on at part of the same time? Ourselves, the Mrs. and I were at church thus did not have to even be in the same room with a TV, on or off, while he was on.

Monica Lewinsky interviewing Bill Clinton would be more credible than CBS interviewing Obama.

He has no intention of doing ANYTHNG to reduce the debt or deficit.

Who caught him in any of his lies? Looks like the 60 minutes interviewer lapped up every one and was left wanting more.

Its a bald faced lie when his deficit ia 1.4 TRILLION a year. There is no way the tax “breaks” add up to anywhere near that amoount.

But how much y’all want to be this will be part of their meme?

Democrat operatives love to rag on "gaffes" by Republicans in the primary. But consider that it's possible Obama actually believes that 700 billion can make a dent in a 10,800 billion debt. That would reveal a level of ignorance or silliness hard to overlook.

So maybe he didn't pull a fast one, but rather revealed an Achilles heel. This is an opportunity, a political gold mine for Obama's opponents.

Are you the Fox’s very own Jesse Watters who does all those ambush segments for the O’Reilly Factor? I love your interviews, especially the one you did at that polo club. They are all enlightening to say the least. Keep up the good work!

Wow, talk about a ratings coup !

I’d have Jerry Springer set it up. Do it for an hour.

Commercials would sell like they do at the Super Bowl.

As a matter of fact, put it on after the Super Bowl !

Big Freaking Bucks !!!

Could steal every cent of assets from the members of the “Forbes 400” and it still wouldn’t cover one year of deficit spending.

Every cent they own, their entire net worth ... not just “higher tax rates”.

Then what would they do next year?

Hi Jesse. If you and OReilly are going to reply to this crap, go dig up the clips of the One stating that Republicans could sit in the back of the car. Their input was of no value. So much for Kroft serving up the softball to try to propagate the fiction of the “bi partisan” obama.

And what about his lie that he did not over promise and didn’t underestimate. This is the same liar who kept saying that the economy he inherited was in much worse shape than he appreciated and that’s why 2 or 3 years is not enough to fix it. Be patient and give me 4 more years. But he didn’t underestimate? One thing for sure, he definitely underestimated how dumb the voters are, since he thinks they will let him get away with his continuing lies.

"According to the Congressional Budget Office, over the next 10 years the Obama budget will produce a deficit of $10.900 billion, or 5.3% of GDP on average."

The article has its own math problems. A deficit of $10.9 billion would be wonderful! I'm guessing this was supposed to be $10.900 Trillion.
