Obama On Fox News Tonight~~~~~UPDATE

By
Real Estate Agent

Looks like President Obama has forsaken his months long boycott of Fox News. 

  • He will be appearing tonight, March 17th at 6pm with Briet Baier.  One would venture Obama is getting desperate to try and reach conservative voters to sway them.


Funny he would not accept an invitation from Glen Beck or Sean Hannity.  The White House won't even call Beck's red phone.  Obama wants to be assured a "safe" interview.  Beck or Hannity would tear him up.

  • Seems like Obama wants to push his health care agenda on Fox News to reach their viewership.  Perhaps he suddenly realized the Main Stream Media outlets are viewed by Americans the same way the Daily News is viewed by New Yorkers - FISH WRAP.


I'm afraid this will be a sterilized interview.  I'm hoping it will not.  Briet is not known to be a confrontational interviewer. 

  • I'm sure this will be pre-recorded and edited favorably for Obama.  It will probably amount to another stump speech. Lots of promises - no details. 

I'd prefer to see a live interview - not a soft gloved one.

_____________________________________

 

Just saw a clip from the interview. Not as soft as Briet usually is. Obama dodged the important issues as usual, especially "Deem and Pass".By his own admission Briet said he was more combantant than usual.  Might be worthwhile watching.

Bonnie,

Great headsup for us. Question: how can he appear on something that he has total contempt for? :)

Steve,  He has finally read the tea leaves?  He is trying his best to reach out and sway conservatives.  Just watch him dodge and run from the issues.  He is his own worst enemy.

I just watched the interview.  There's no swaying going on here.  Bret did his best to get answers and as usual Obama dodged the questions and gave long, drawn out, answers that had nothing to do with the questions Bret was asking.....  Absolutely disgusting!!!!

I'm waiting for the interviewer that asks the President flat out, "Are you going to answer the questions I actually asked, or just continued with unrelated talking points?"

Kim.  I agree.  I watched it also.  Briet actually got more confrontational by his own admission, to try and keep Obama on point.  Other commentators who watched the interview said he did the best he could do, given the arrogance of Obama.

Lane,  It was nothing more then using the Fox Network to repeat the same thing he does in every speech.  He is not sincere about reaching out to Americans to speak with them - just the same old lecture.

Larry,  According to some who have investigated his statements they agree he is not telling the truth.  He gives no details - just a gloss over.

Gerorgia,  You know how desperate he is to get this passed.  To bend on his moratorium of Fox News, which he himself labeled - entertainment not news, shows how he is grabbing at every straw.

Wallace,  He has put off his trips to keep making side deals and buying votes.  Gonna bet he will get them.  There is so much in this bill that we do not know about them.

JL  Obama blocked Breit from making any significant progress.  He controlled the entire thing.

He was so smarmy and condescending to Brett! I'm surprised his head does not explode it is so BIG!

Wallace,  I saw how arrogant he was.  He is certainly an elitist and over come with power.  I'd like nothing more than to see him exposed for what he really is.
