O'reilley vs. Obama live




pretty good interview imo,

ive said all along that if obama started being more centrist and clintonesque that he would find a lot more people much more willing to give him a chance.


...still the same bs about obamacare, but oreilley gave it back pretty good.

all in all a damn fine interview.

and i also liked obamas state of the union speech this year.


go figure.

what did u think of the interview?

gotta give obams credit for duking it out live with bill o , thats some balsy shit considering its bill oreilley, live, and right before the superbowl .

and i think he aced it. even tho some of his positions piss me off i would end just like oreilley did- thank you mr president, i disagree about some things, but i hope i was fair.

I'm not sure that interview started anywhere or ended anywhere, it was all over the place and I don't think any time was given to really get a worthwhile answer to any of the questions.

Obama definitely is confidant and holds his own, but Bill has this constant tactic of looking down, lowering his voice and spewing some bs, then quickly trying to move onto a new question or topic, obviously trying to plant ideas in peoples heads (since the last thing they hear about that topic is his irrational opinion). Obama clearly didn't let that be the final word though and thats refreshing to see Bill stfu for once and listen.

Otherwise, it was just the same talking points I've heard...I suppose to be an effective President you really need to constantly sound like a broken record (while changing the record every once and a while).

O'Reilly did a terrible interview. When he wasn't interrupting, he was changing the topic. He violated every convention of a good interviewer.

He's no Terry Gross.

That would have been a more accurate title.
