Obama And Bill O'Reilly Just Had An Extremely Tense Pre-Super Bowl Interview
Business Insider ^ | February 2, 2014 | Brett LoGiurato

Posted on 02/02/2014 2:07:45 PM PST by CreviceTool

Fox News' Bill O'Reilly and President Barack Obama went back and forth for a tense 15 minutes Sunday afternoon, in a pre-Super Bowl interview that focused on the IRS, the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, and the rollout of the Affordable Care Act.

O'Reilly opened the interview by saying he wanted to get some things "on the record."

I saw it.

0bama Comes Across As Consummate Weasel

The President feebly squirmed his way through numerous lines of questioning, such as 0bamacare, Benghazi, and the IRS scandal.

Basically, 0bama epitomized the slick, empty puppet who's as full of shit as the day is long. 0bama couldn't adequately address any of these scandals, and he looked like a totally corrupt fool.

Bill O'Reilly, for his part and to my amazement, was relatively aggressive, and pressed the President as hard as he could, given the time permitted. He wasn't trying to make the President look good, that's for sure, but O'Reilly did say that he thought the President's "heart was in the right place." So 0bama was not the only fool on the stage, obviously.

For anyone who cared to watch, the President didn't do himself any favors and did not acquit himself well...

yeah, well, I still don’t think O’Reilly is worth his salt.

One of the highest paid guys in news, and he is “populist” in his ideology.

I’d prefer a true conservative. I’d settle for MORE conservative.

It appears Baraq’s fall schedule will be open for a LOT of golf. Very few (if any) Dem candidates looking for him to campaign locally.

I saw the last few minutes and O’Reilly couldn’t get a word in or a question out. Obama was talking fast trying to lie about Benghazi. O’Reilly is weak. Interview should have been with Brit Hume or Charles Krauthammer. Barry Hussein would have had his ass handed to him.

It was broadcast at 4:30. I went to the room with my PC because I couldn’t stand it live. O was very polite, and very slippery when O’Reilly questioned him about Benghazi. It was clear nothing would come of it.

BOR’s strengths:

1. Staying on point, cutting short the verbiage that does not add value.
2. Looking out for the truly helpless, i.e. children.
3. General communicator, his talking points are clear and unambiguous.

Weaknesses:

1. Anything economic, he shoots from the hip without analysis. He needs to defer to Krauthammer for that.
2. He really is a simple man.

I’ve wondered if OReilly is going to play it safe - or ‘go for the gusto’ this time - since now he’s got the money and the years banked... I guess we’ll find out.

O'Reilly was point on with the few questions he was allowed to ask. Obama, true to his nature, once again proved himself a fairly unaccomplished liar. We all know the basic story…..Obama holds to fiction……the Nazi minister of propaganda would be proud of Obama. Obama is a ling, liar of a liar. O'Reillh stayed on him and obamal kept dodging the questions. Obama had the temerity to say we told to people the next day it was a terrorist attack. No mention of the poor bastard languishing in a jail in Los Angeles for over 1 year. Oreilly asked about the IRS….Obama said not a hint of corruption…..O'Reilly asked about the cluster**** with health care rollout. Obama said 1 1/2 month later it was completely fixed and was up and working we'll. Then O'Reilly asked about why it was necessary to 'fundamentally transform' a nation which had given him so much opportunity. Obama basically said he never said that…..that we did not need to change America.

One offing lie after another. Who would ever believe him? I think he is going to be in deeper than ever now……If the media does its job.

Mr. President….you just cemented it…WE DO NOT BELIEVE YOU. Your credibility is shot.

Very interesting how dear leader took such a condescending approach by laughing off the notion that anything happened with Benghazi and the IRS. Sadly, OReilly is not quick enough to attack when OBama said there have been numerous hearings and nothing has come out on them.

"Why didn't you fire Sebelius?" O'Reilly said.

He avoided a direct answer, but Obama said that people were being "held accountable." O'Reilly subsequently questioned Obama on whether his promise that, "If you like your plan, you can keep it" was his biggest "mistake" as president. Obama used a football analogy at the end of this line of questioning, saying he was trying to not dwell on the "fumbles" and move on to the next play.

I suppose it will never occur to him that that strategy is exactly why the "fumbles" keep happening? Nah.

Nahhhhh, if the interview had any “real” hard hitting confrontational questions, ones that were pre-submitted anyway, otherwise the “Chicken in Chief” would have refused the interview, through channels of course...

I believe this anointed president was very well prepared and had all the ammunition he needed to do exactly what was expected and actually happened in that interview...

BOR, and the media pundits all think they got something over on this guy...Not even close...

Now, that being said, that is my initial evaluation of this event...So, I am reserving a chance to revisit this once the weekends festivities are completed...I just love these commercials!!!

Obama played the blame game again during the interview.
Obama did not look Presidential. O’Reilly appeared more Presidential than Obama. Obama looked and sounded weak.
It is hard to trust someone who continues to make excuses and never is responsible for their own actions. Obama failed to change anyone’s mind about his numerous scandals.
The interview also confirmed his followers are fools including devoted Democratic Party followers in the Media.

I watched it. Nothing tense about it. I felt like I just ran 10 laps around the bases without touching home plate at the end of the last lap. It was hyped, lastly about 20 minutes and BO made the BORe look respectful at best and like a doorknob being turned this way and that way without opening any new doors. Lame-ass interview IMO.
