The most intriguing element of Fox’s four-hour pregame show? It might be Bill O’Reilly’s interview with President Barack Obama because we’re eager to see if O’Reilly treats Obama more respectfully than the last time they sat together for a pre-Super Bowl chat, in 2010.
That day, O’Reilly interrupted Obama 48 times in 15 minutes, or 3.2 per minute. It’s one thing to challenge the President; it’s another to not let him finish a thought. Sunday’s session, scheduled for 4:30 p.m., could be compelling television.
Obama Vs O’Reilly Interview On Fox – 2-2-2014 – Obamacare, Benghazi Attack, IRS Targeting
The clown O’reillyis getting old and ugly and no one is scared anymore when he interrupts. The Prince Obama is cool and coherent and won handily.
Understand something, by definition Billm when some one is attacking our compound it’s an act of terror!.” Once again President Obama tells what happened and explains the situation as it went down .And calls O Reilly out on his lying about it and other subjects.

Super Bowl: Obama Blasts Fox News In Testy O’Reilly Interview
Things turned tense quickly today between President Obama and Bill O’Reilly in their Super Bowl pregame interview. “OK, Bill, you’ve got a long list of my mistakes,” Obama said to The O’Reilly Factor host near the start of their 10-minute live interview on Fox. That remark — in response to a question from O’Reilly whether it was the biggest mistake of Obama’s presidency when he told Americans no one would lose their healthcare under Obamacare — was one of a number of points on which the two butted heads.
The duo sparred almost from the beginning in the interview live from the White House this afternoon. Obama also took on Fox News Channel when O’Reilly asked him about reports the IRS was investigating Tea Party-related groups for political reasons. “These kind of things keep resurfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them,” Obama said. “When you look there have been multiple hearings.”
Obama denied any corruption, just some “boneheaded decisions.” Earlier, the Fox News host interrupted Obama with a “you’re not going to answer that?” as the President replied to a question about why he didn’t fire Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius after the botched online launch of Obamacare.
The face-to-face marked the first time O’Reilly has interviewed Obama since Fox last broadcast the Super Bowl in 2011. The two covered several topics today including the Obamacare rollout, the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, and the IRS scandal. Obama wouldn’t offer a prediction for the game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.
“I can’t make a prediction, I don’t know, these guys are too evenly matched,” he said. “I think it is going to be 24-21 but I don’t know who is going to be 24 and I don’t know who is going to be 21.” Just before the interview ended, O’Reilly told the President he thought his heart was in the right place. O’Reilly and Obama are set to chat more today for an additional taped portion that will be shown Monday on O’Reilly Factor.
The last time the FNC host and the President sat down together three years ago, O’Reilly grilled Obama about the Affordable Care Act, then before the courts, and how Obama felt knowing people “hate” him. The first time the two spoke on-camera was in 2008, when then-Sen. Obama was running for president.
It’s a now six-year Super Bowl tradition that the lead newsman for the host network sits down with Obama. Last year, with CBS broadcasting, anchor Scott Pelley did the honors, and in 2012 Today’s Matt Lauer landed the interview when NBC had the game. A well-known big sports fan and also well aware of the giant TV audience the big NFL game grants him, Obama noted the Broncos-Seahawks matchup in his weekly online address yesterday. “Have a great weekend,” he said concluding his speech, “and enjoy the Super Bowl.”
