Pres. Obama Battles O’Reilly In Pre-Super Bowl Interview: ‘You And Your TV Station’ Push Benghazi, IRS

President Barack Obama sat down with Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly for a pre-Super Bowl interview, a reprise of the Q&A the two did before the 2011 game, and Obama’s sixth straight pre-Super Bowl interview.

O’Reilly grilled Obama on why Kathleen Sebelius had not been fired, noting that he as a taxpayer was paying her salary, and also asked if Obama thought the “If you like your plan you can keep your plan” claim was his “biggest mistake?”

Obama responded to both queries by arguing that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act was an ongoing process, and he was committed to getting it to work rather than dwelling on past mistakes. “I try to focus not on the fumbles but on the next play,” Obama said.

The tensest moments came on Benghazi, with the host and the president talking over each other and at times sniping at each other.

    Bill O’Reilly is one among many Right Wing Nutjobs associated with the FOX NEWS COMPANY. Yes, the was disrespectful of POTUS. Yes, he attempted to show blatant contempt for all that POTUS and Yes, I believe that that because the president is BLACK our president will continue to be singled out by the Media as a presidential failure. If the founding fathers of this country were here today, they too would declare President Barack Obama not 100% a man!!!

    I am amazed how intelligent credible black leaders (and not all fit this category) can make excuses and justify the lack of attention African Americans receive from President Obama. His past behaviors (or lack thereof) regarding African Americans are true indicators for his continual plans. One should not expect anything different from him in his second term. The hope, change and forward slogans he ran on (and the majority of Blacks believed in) are real, but not in the way they thought.

    The real hope, change and forward slogans for African Americans includes “I hope you compromise your morals and values (be tolerant of everything), I hope you keep having babies out of wedlock (who need a mother and father), or I hope you keep killing your unborn babies in record numbers (stagnant population), I hope you ignore black on black crime (overlook the murder and incarceration rates), I hope you do not get a job, or look for one (I’ve got your back – unemployment, cash assistance, food stamps, and Medicaid), I hope you depend on government to meet your needs (free or reduced rates on housing, education, transportation, and cell phone), I hope you continue to trust me (I am really black like you – I understand your struggles), I hope you never think for yourself because you may realize the truth and change your mind about me, and finally you do need to move forward, because I can control you just where you are.”
