    Obama says people who hate him don't know him

    Asked by interviewer Bill O'Reilly whether his critics annoyed him, Obama said: "By the time you get here, you have to have had a pretty thick skin. If you didn't, then you probably wouldn't have gotten here."

    The 14-minute, live interview sought Obama's views on a range of timely matters, including the unrest in Egypt and the ultimate fate of the new health care law. O'Reilly also probed Obama on lighter topics, including which team would win the Super Bowl and the worst part of his job.
    Obama wasn't the editor of the Harvard Law Review for nothing. He handled the interview very smartly. Bill O'Reilly didn't pull his punches either, and asked questions that mainstream America want to know the answers to.

    This turned out to be an excellent interview, for both Obama and O'Reilly.

    Also, the video of the interview is now up on Youtube. Here it is:

    So, what does everybody think?

    Oops, wrong interview, you linked to the 2008 interview.

    Obama is mad that he's followed everywhere? What does he have to hide? Is he going with friends to a super secret Muslim-Commie-Kenyan meeting? :O

    That wasn't too honest. There is a sizable population that don't like the health care program. There are also many who see what Obama is doing as wealth distribution. To O'Reilly's credit, he focused on that. Why? For his audience, of course. There was nothing in the interview that questioned Obama's patriotism, called him a Marxist, or or called him a Kenyan, or called him a Muslim. IMHO, the questions were good ones, and Obama fielded them well.

    So, what does everybody think?
    Too many softballs... who cares what he feels, how he's changed... the last third was an absolute, 100% waste.

    1. Free press. Unless it is FOX in the WH. Remember how they tried to shut them out of the pool?

    2. Egypt isn't going back and want a responsive government. How about America? We sent BO a message... with Brown and during the midterms.

    3. Muslim Brotherhood. Obama is praying it doesn't backfire. He'll be right beside Carter... he has been in every way up to now, this would be the cherry on top. What a cherry.

    4. Florida judge used his words against him in shutting down ObamaKare. One judge got it dead, solid, perfect right on the money.

    5. Obama may not want to refight a back-door mess of policy called ObamaKare... he fails to understand people voted overwhelmingly to undo his mess.

    Obama fails to get the message. Period.

    6. WSJ... nice skate. He's placed burdens and redistributed wealth like Marx would have liked. Trillions in future debt. What a joke.

    7. Obama has done nothing to create jobs.

    8. HE ADMITTED WE WERE LOSING JOBS!!! and if you listen to his tone... he knows he f'd up. Big Time.

    9. It's not his job to tell and demand Americans to buy services.

    10. He's full of it about creating jobs. Pure BS. And again, he thinks he can skate past the disaster called ObamaKare saying he doesn't want to fight what happened during the past 2-years. Too bad... Americans do. That's why we voted out the socialists en masse.

    11. Common sense focus... ROTFLOL...

    12. Nobody has been able to solve... complicated problems... aw. Reagan seemed to handle them ok. His problem is his "solutions" aren't solutions, and people don't want them. He might have been able to pull some of his destructive program during better times, but not now. That's why it's complicated for him... people see through the deceit.

    13. We don't hate Obama, we hate his policy.

    14. We know Obama... it was clear to any sober citizen before he was elected. This was all predicted.

    A fairly useless interview. Can't wait until the Republican nominee sits across and kicks the light weight's ass.

    The blind partisanism is amusing, Zimmer.

    I numbered the points... all in sequence. What's partisan? ... point it out instead of lobbing a statement without any backup. That he's Carter II? How about accurate? The elections of brown & midterms? The last 33% of the interview being useless? Trying to shut out FOX from the WH pool? He didn't say we are losing jobs? The Judge using Obama's own words to shoot down ObamaKare? That we don't hate Obama, but really dislike his policies because they're diametrically opposed to the Constitution?

    How about it Deuce?

    And his comment about "streams of anti-Americanism" within the Muslim Brotherhood was shading the truth too. They're both anti-American and anti-Semitic. It is their core... not a stream... Let's not kid anyone.
