O'REILLY: All right.
Was it the biggest mistake of your presidency to tell the nation over and over, if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance?
OBAMA: But this is -- this is one that I regret and I've said I regretted, in part because we put in a grandfather clause in the original law saying that, in fact, you were supposed to be able to keep it. It obviously didn't cover everybody that we needed to and that's why we changed it, so that we further grandfathered in folks and many people who thought originally, when they got that cancellation notice, they couldn't keep it or not (INAUDIBLE)...

Too bad Hannity didn't interview Obama.
Link to video of the interview:
O’Reilly’s first question is the glitches with the Obamacare website rollout, as if that were the most important problem with Obamacare...
I bet O’Reilly was told and agreed to the questions he was allowed to ask, make it “look tough”, that’s why he is interrupting, but actually all softballs...
O’Reilly has always had a soft spot for Obama.
Or Mark Levin...
More set up ratings kabuki theater nonsense. Might as read comic books. The silly sodomite coked out narcissistic muzzie allegianced undocumented commie puppet has diarrhea of the mouth.
I bet O’Reilly sent Obama a list of the questions ahead of time.
He is on Obama’s side.
“OReilly has always had a soft spot for Obama.”
honestly, I don’t think it’s that at all. o’reilly has his millions and quite a bit of fame and influence. he would like to enjoy his cushy life and becoming a so called extremist would just cause him pain. i’m sure that most here are aware that Michael savage is not even allowed in great Britain , for cripes sakes, just for giving an opinion on the radio.
o’reilly is best buds with jon stewart, goes on the view, etc. that’s because he takes the soft ball opposition view.
he’s happy the way things.
ps, I don’t watch him anymore.
Did anyone expect O-Reilly to hammer him? O Reilly still thinks his first interview with him was hard hitting and we all know that was also a joke, just as this interview was. Obama tolerates O Reilly but hates Fox.
On Monday O’Reilly will be doing a show about what a great job he did on the interview.
This thing is full of lies. Everything he said involved lies. Too many to name.
“I bet OReilly sent Obama a list of the questions ahead of time.”
Either that or Obama sent O’Reilly the questions he was allowed to ask...
Obama was lying the whole time, and O’Reilly got owned.
If you like your liars, well..................
There is a remedy for these types of situations.
Too bad Fox didn't send in one of their crotch fighters...
Short of sticking a stinky sock in his mouth, neither Hannity nor Bret Bair could have done anything about it
And, no, I am not a fan of BOR
Was that tiny rectangular pin on Obama’s lapel an American Flag??
It was so small it looked like a micro-chip. And you know he only wears it because his handlers told him he has to.
OReilly is what I call a lib who just doesn’t want his own taxes to go up.
O’Reilly made ODimwit look good and O’Reilly looked like the fool he is. Upset, but can’t say I’m surprised. What a hack.
Judge Jeanine is great, I agree!
O’Reilly is all about Bill and his ratings.
He does’t give a damn about the truth or substance.
Did I imagine it, or did Bill’O actually say he thought Obama’s heart was in the right place?
He says he’s from Harvard but its from the least respected and the most recent college of Harvard. JFK School of Government! Any jackass can admitted to this school.
The sad fact is, O'Reilly is not a very good interviewer.
Anyone remember when all these stupid presidential interviews before the Super Bowl started. Can’t we have just one day we don’t see or hear the idiot?
He even has to approve questions at press conference. I'm so sick and tired of the idiot and his entire family...and that goes for all Clinton's and Bush’es...no more...this nation needs to heal and get back on the right track.
Wow, OReilly got into enemy territory!
Obunga is a such a slippery shady character. Avoided answering straight questions. Bork Obunga monologues so OReilly HAD TO INTERRUPT just to get a word in.
President Narcissus thinks everyone wants to listen to his golden words while he bloviates. He thought it was a SPEECH, not an interview, so he motor-mouthed it.
Its clear to me that hes lying thru his teeth on Benghazi, IRS, and Obummercare.
The O’bama O’reilly choom gang love fest?
I must have missed it...
To #11 re “On Monday O’Reilly will be doing a show about what a great job he did on the interview.”
I think the “great job” he did could be classified like our present weather, a “SNOW JOB”.
O’Reilly thinks too much of himself. He interrupts his guests when they are speaking and almost always cuts off the key part of the person’s summary sentence.
I know that I got more useful information from interviewing a North Vietnamese General who defected than O’Reilly got from the President. And you know something, I would trust what the PAVN commander said more than I would trust would Obie would say.
What a sad and tragic state of affairs America has become in the past 5 years.
“O’REILLY: I think — I — you know, I know you think maybe we haven’t been fair, but I think your heart is in the right place.”
Funny how big old Catholic on his sleeve O’Reilly couldn’t ask about the trampling of the First Amendment rights of people who are against abortion. The guy instead asks the same stupid questions anyone would have asked, if they were trying to appear “tough.” He should have done something on the Little Sisters of the Poor, although Obama would have either stammered, or said he can’t comment on a “court case.”
O'Reilly is skilled and knowledgeable about the IRS scandal. The fact that he did not follow up with the fact that the chain of command went up to the White House and that more than one took the fifth amendment shows without doubt this was kabuki theater or as I would prefer to say, "a bull sh-t interview with a predetermined outcome.
O'Reilly will throw away journalistic ethics to have the chance to rub elbows and exchange platitudes with a President. I find Obama beneath contempt, but O'Rielly is worse.
It was nothing more than a lets cover the President by BO. The whole govt is corrupt and outdated. Is this the biggest mistake, something about insurance coverage. What a sham interview.
...and on Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri and the whole following week.
I don’t watch him anymore either !!
Where was the question about Obama doing things without congress?
Or maybe a wet spot.
“in part because we put in a grandfather clause in the original law”
There is the “we” part when he blames someone else instead of the “I” when he likes to take credit for something he didn’t do.
He answered no questions, His body language says he's lying.
He needs to go.
Yes you’re very right. He will ask all his guests how did he do...
Individual questions on certain things Obama did are meaningless. Somebody needs to interview the guy and ask him to explain his philosophy.
“Too bad Hannity didn’t interview Obama.”
Of course. The clowns handlers aren’t going to let their
puppet get interviewed by anyone “hardball”. But I don’t
think Hannity would have done any better. I just don’t
see him having the balls to go head to head with Obama.
They wouldn’t let Obama in the room with anyone who would
really stand up to him, only the ones who bring their own
Though almost everything Obama said was a bald face lie,
the clown still made O’Reilly look owned.
My first question would have been “ why do you feel you and your administration have to blatantly lie to the American people all the time?”. Obama would have either
left the interview or put his foot in his mouth. On the
other hand why interview a habitual liar in the first
place unless you are going to call the liar out on it.
Given O’Reilly’s show is a waist of time anyway, he
did manage to get Obama to lie through the whole
interview but anyone can do that, so really, nothing
According to what I read yesterday on another thread, no, you didn't imagine it. He DID say that, which really is not surprising.
Anyone, who doesn’t see Bill O’Reilly for the schlub he is, this statement sums up, which side he’s on:
O’REILLY: I think — I — you know, I know you think maybe we haven’t been fair, but I think your heart is in the right place.
Amen to that
Amen to that
Amen to that
