Jive-Turkey, you're cracking me up (thanks for the laugh).   As for your comment about lying, I don't want to get into the religious aspects because I think that would spark a huge debate.  Plus, when we consider messaging outside the sphere of this web site, these sort of comments perhaps can do more harm than good.   And besides, I think the sentiment goes way beyond religion anyway.   I talk about this very thing in the chapter on Honesty.  Those that support the president think "spin" (or even deliberate  distortion) is a good thing, because it allows the guy they support to "win".  So it is really the premise that the "ends justify the means" which we really should be concerned about.   If we ever tolerate lying to justify some outcome, we're in really big trouble.   And yes, I realize that those with a less than ethical agenda will sink to any level, but we have to be better than that.   It is a huge temptation to sink to that level, but we must resist.  And more importantly, we must spread a more enlightened message and hope that it rubs off on others.   It is no accident that the title of my book is "Raising the Bar, ....".  If we don't do this, we all lose, and it won't really matter that we had more righteous objectives.

O'Reilly got "Sand-Bagged".

Islam permits lying, if it is in the interest of the effort being pursued.

When I was a young man...we would have called a guy like Obama "A JIVE-TURKEY'.

The interesting thing about the O'Reilly / Obama interview is that most of the comments on this site are correct - even those that seem to contradict each other.  Yes, Mr Obama was going to look "good" no matter what O'Reilly did, because when distorting the truth is what you are an expert at, and when 40-50% of your audience is inclined to believe you no matter what you say or do, how could Mr Obama look bad?  To that end, O'Reilly had no means to effectively expose the fact that the emperor has no clothes.  We need a major dose of reality in this country, and until we collectively get out from the fog of delusion, I have little hope that anything will ever change.   So yes, I think O'Reilly wasn't "touch enough", but no one can really know whether some other strategy would have worked any better.   And yes, I believe the media, even Fox news, has grown soft and is complicit in many of our problems.   So although Fox news seems to be sympathetic to main stream America, I'm not sure they are truly a disinterested and autonomous organization.  In fact, I'm not sure such a thing exists anymore.  I dedicated a chapter to a book I wrote on how we must have a strong and independent news media, and that the diversity of news sources actually weakens the ability of any one news outlet from being truly "hard hitting". And I'm not even sure what the appropriate answer is, because although I think migrating to a "pay per view" model would be more fair, I'm not sure that would increase the power of the news media. Now certainly, pay per view would probably weed out the news outlets that merely pander to the poor and non productive (this is why Fox news can charge a higher wholesale rate than CNN and others for their content).   But still, I think in general the American people need to re-embrace honesty before truth in the media will be accepted again.   So I applaud the efforts of groups like the Tea Party for trying to get the message out, but I think it needs to be exposed to more than just Tea Party loyalists.

To that end, I offer my book (on Amazon) for free tomorrow and Wednesday (plus, other days) - the details are published on this Tea Party blog:
http://teapartyorg.ning.com/profiles/blogs/raising-the-bar-restorin...

So far, no one on this web site has offered any feedback (which is a shame).   Perhaps after the next few days (since the book is free), that will change.  I'm definitely willing to consider feedback (but please be kind/respectful - I won't respond to those that aren't).

Weeny Bill ask tough questions and never got one answered, so Bill, like Clint, might as well talked to an empty chair. Snow was falling everywhere I think they call that a white out or a snow job. That interview could have been done by a grade school kid, maybe by the same kid that was pushed forward when the healthcare bill was signed. I actually stopped watching Bill giving cover to obama a while ago and haven't missed him a bit. I believe this was a softball interview because obama wasn't made to answer.

 The folks....the folks..... this said nothing & he won't. I don't think his heart is in any "good place".. I wonder if he & she will go into show business when he's done ruining everything?

Bill should have done more to nail the Dictator's ass to the wall.

Despite Obama's signature parsing, double-talk and filibustering, I thought O'Reilly was remarkably dogged.

Obama's embarrassing mendacity and insincerity was on full display for all honest and objective folks to see. Body language spoke volumes. The interview underscored yet again that Obama is, manifestly, a shameless, prevaricating hack, and nothing more.

When O'Reilly asked Obama about his stated desire to "fundamentally transform the USA" and why Obama felt that way, Obama dodged & weaved, implying by his circuitous reply that he didn't use those words. My stomach turned.

This guy is a self-serving, amoral pathological liar and narcissist of the first order, and he will, in fact, go down as the most morally corrupt, dishonest, unscrupulous and least respected chief executive in our nation's history--that is, assuming we have a history as a nation for much longer.

What is crystal clear is that this poor excuse for a President needs to resign or be impeached & removed for high crimes and misdemeanors. Absolutely no question about i--at all. Perhaps OAS can pull that off this summer. For the country's sake, I sincerely hope so. GO OAS!

So, to my way of  thinking, O'Reilly did a creditable job. Can't imagine how he could have done better without jabbing his finger in Barry's face to evoke an unguarded response. And even with that, Barry's much too slippery to have permitted such openness and honesty. For me, Obama once again exposed the charlatan and scoundrel he genuinely is.

O'Reilly just gave Obama a national forum to dance around with a smile all of his scandals.  Why even do this, it just allows Obama to look like a reasonable guy, when we already know he lied and lied and lied.   I believe O'Reilly has been on top too long and is just worried about his ratings.  Very softball, BS!!!

Comment by Jan Cubbage on February 3, 2014 at 9:10am
Will not watch O'Reilly any longer. I know that Obama demanded to know what the questions were going to be so O'Reilly should have declined to do the interview! Very disappointing. More of the same!!!

I wonder what would have happened if Bush had said...We are not going to attack anyone for 911, we just want to fix the internal problems that did not see this tragic attack coming.

The Fall Of Fake News!! Quiet Shake-Up At MSNBC After Station Hemorrhages Viewers Following Mueller Debacle 

Reports are surfacing about a quiet shake-up of personnel at MSNBC after the cable news station lost more than 30% of their audience after the Mueller debacle.

Apparently MNSBC doesn’t think their financial woes are newsworthy given that they didn’t run any breathless stories about their own failings.

News of MSNBC’s collapse can’t come as a surprise to insiders who undoubtedly are fully aware that their audience no longer trusts them.

One source familiar told Mediaite the changes came amidst mounting complaints from NBC News chief Andy Lack about a dip in MSNBC’s ratings following the end of the Mueller investigation. In May, ratings for the network in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demo were down 32% year over year.

MSNBC viewers were asked: How much do you agree that MSNBC regularly reports made up or fake news about Donald Trump and his administration?

The responses were devastating! While 35% or respondents agree that MSNBC pushes Fake News, only 24% disagreed. That’s a ratings death sentence!

What do you expect from a channel that boasts disgraced liar, Brian Williams, and race pimp, Al Sharpton?

MAJOR SHAKEUP AT MSNBC - Ratings crater after Mueller Report Debacle! 

MSNBC Shakeup: Jonathan Wald and Dan Arnall Take Dayside

MSNBC quietly implemented a sweeping shakeup in programming this week, Mediaite has learned, appointing SVP of programming and development Jonathan Wald and MSNBC executive editor Dan Arnall to lead...

Flashback: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Plummet To Yearly Low

MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow brought in her worst weekly ratings of the year last week.

Her show last week averaged 2,324,000 viewers, with an average audience of 337,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, both of which mark yearly lows for the liberal television host, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Maddow first saw a dramatic drop in ratings following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Her previous low for a week in 2019 was the last week in March, the first full week after Mueller submitted his conclusion to Attorney General William Barr, where she averaged 2,458,000 viewers with 392,000 in the demo.

She spent two years dissecting every aspect of the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election. The night Mueller submitted his findings to Barr, Maddow appeared to hold back tears over the fact that neither the president nor any family members were indicted.

Compared to Maddow’s low ratings last week, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, whose program is often the most-watched among all cable news shows, averaged 3,108,000 viewers with just under half-a-million viewers in the key demographic.

She also nearly tripled CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s weekly ratings. His program only had 880,000 viewers with 225,000 in the key demo.
