Obama, O'Reilly: Super Bowl Interview (Video)

I really don't like the practice of inserting an interview with the president in the Super Bowl pregame show.

It's so out of place.

I didn't want to hear Obama's lies.

Late afternoon on Super Bowl Sunday is not the time to be talking with Obama about ObamaCare or Benghazi or the IRS scandal or his declaration that he intends to "fundamentally transform America."

That said, I was glad Obama was squirming on national TV.

Here's video of Bill O'Reilly interviewing Obama:

Oh, God. It was painful to watch the first time and even worse watching again.

Obama's "I'm a victim of FOX News propaganda" was pathetic. He was really struggling.

I think O'Reilly did a relatively good job, especially considering the time constraints. He tried to cover a lot in a very brief period. O'Reilly did challenge Obama when he lied. It wasn't a softball interview. Yes, O'Reilly could have pressed Obama more than he did, and there were questions he didn't ask; but there just wasn't time.

All the unanswered questions revealed how much Obama still needs to explain. More than anything, the interview exposed that Obama has not been held accountable. He hasn't had to answer for his screw-ups and scandals and lies.

I don't think O'Reilly should be criticized, even for his "your heart is in the right place" remark. Criticism should be reserved for the "news" outlets that have spent YEARS aiding and abetting Obama.
