Yes! Obama finally admits Fox News is legit. If this O'Reilly/Obama interview was good for anything, it was that. Obama never fails, though – one minute he's talking about FNC behind its back, and then when he's face to face with O'Reilly all of a sudden it's, "Oh yeah, I respect FNC." He's a two-faced liar.
There were plenty of laugh-out-loud moments during Sunday's interview, one being Obama complaining that he can't escape. He can't go off and just relax. Are you kidding me? That's all he does! I'd like to see a breakdown of actual time spent assisting America in her recovery vs. his time spent vacationing. What does he need to escape from anyway? Has he done any president-type work since he gained office? I suppose his vacations are a blessing, though. This means fewer opportunities to destroy the U.S. any more than his health-care law already has.
I wasn't surprised by Obama's arrogance. It was subtle, but nevertheless it was there. Obama was trying to win the hearts of Americans who are on the fence about his "accomplishments" during his first term, always "certain" that things will work out and that our country is finally headed in the right direction. Give me a break. It's easy for him to be confident when he's talking to a network he doesn't care about. Where was this cockiness when Hu was here?

The fact is Obama thinks only his way is right for the country. That's why he threw a hissy when so many Republicans won in November. If he really wanted to work together, if any of the liberals in office wanted to work together, they would have welcomed Republicans and been grateful for the extra set of eyes.
As usual, the countess of corruptions put in her two cents, and then quickly took them back. We all know that Nancy Pelosi couldn't let go of her own dime if her life depended on it. She has no problem making it rain with our money, but her own? Forget about it. She felt O'Reilly disrespected the president with his down-to-earth interview. She thought he was too casual. What does she know about it? First of all, Obama didn't even wear a tie. And second, Obama isn't the queen of England. He's our employee. He works for us. Yes, we should respect him, but we don't have to put him on a pedestal. Let's face it, though, if O'Reilly had kissed Obama's boots it still wouldn't be enough for that Botox beauty. The woman needs a reality check. Obama is not the messiah. He is not here to save us.
On one hand, I'm proud of O'Reilly because he didn't take the bait. The left was hoping O'Reilly would jump down Obama's throat and crucify him. I watched the "after interview" where O'Reilly was able to ask more questions after the live feed, and he did get some tougher questions in there. On the other hand, I don't think anyone cared about some of the things O'Reilly asked – like "What do you think about the people who hate you?" I don't care what Obama thinks about those people.

Obama made an excuse that "They just don't know me." BS! People who dislike Obama don't have to know him on a personal level. As president he should put his best foot forward, but he hasn't. I don't need to know the president personally to know his policies are ridiculous, or that he's arrogant and one-sided. Obama is looking out for Obama. He seems to think he can do no wrong and that he's turned this country around for the better. He needs to take the rose-colored glasses off and humble himself before he falls into an even deeper hole.
The football question was hilarious, though. When O'Reilly asked him who he thought would win Obama's answer couldn't have been more contrived than if his aide had fed it to him right in front of the camera. We know Obama doesn't know a football from his cigarettes. Someone told him what to say to sound knowledgeable. He needs to understand it's OK if you don't know anything about baseball and football. He's trying too hard. It just makes people dislike him more when he tries to be something he's not … relatable.
My dose of honesty: This was a relatively good interview, but good for whom? It made Obama seem almost likable because he had a casual air about him and his answers were full of empty certainties. Sure, O'Reilly got in some good questions, but as predicted the president didn't answer many of them. Obama should write another book, "How to Say Something Without Revealing Much of Anything." It would be the politician's best friend.
