I just watched Bill O’Reilly’s interview with President Obama on the Superbowl pre-game show.
The only time O’Reilly really pressed Obama was on who he thought would win the Super Bowl. While O’Reilly did question Obama about Egypt and Obamacare, the President spun O’Reilly’s questions like Ben Roethlisberger spirals a football. Obama stayed on message and O’Reilly did not challenge Obama’s assertions such as when the President reiterated that “if you like your health care, you keep it.” Tell that to employees of McDonald’s.
While the interview was part of the Super Bowl pre-game show a more apt setting would have been before a softball game because O’Reilly most asked softball questions (i.e. What’s the worst part of your job? What has surprised you most about the job? How have you changed as a person?). Katie Couric or Matt Lauer could have just as easily asked those questions. Now I’m not looking for O’Reilly to yell in Obama’s face. I just wish he would have challenged Obama’s talking points more assertively.
I should note that O’Reilly mentioned at the end of the interview that he would be asking the President more questions which will air tomorrow night on The O’Reilly Factor. Perhaps he’ll be tougher in that segment but he certainly won’t have the audience that he did this afternoon. I think President Obama got what he wanted out of this interview.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
