    Barack Obama sits down with Bill O'Reilly -

    He showed diplomacy even worked on an extreme right wing nutjob like Bile O'Rilly. It should work for Iran too. I want McCain on Keith Olbermann's show. lets see some guts Mr. Straight Talk Express.

    Obama seems to know his stuff and is really not intimidated. I think he's defusing a lot of O'Reilly's mines.

    Thanks for posting the link. I wanted to see that. I don't have time now but, I'll watch it later. And you picked the right guy for McCain. If Obama is going to be interviewed by a nut job McCain might as well be interviewed by a nut job.

    Obama did come across well, he is not a dumb man. However what also came across well is just how good he is an the non-answer. How he cannot admit he was wrong about something.

    That was only part 1 of 4...

    Next Tuesday he gets questioned about William Ayers & Rev Wright.

    I am looking forward to that !

    We've seen very little of him in an interview setting; the Saddleback setting had me a bit concerned. He struck me as trying to be thoughtful and respectful to the point that, well, he didn't make his point -- certainly not forcefully.

    He thinks when he talks and that will alienate (and seem untrustworthy) to a lot of people -- principal among them, those who just blather mindlessly themselves.

    That said, I feel a lot better about the forums coming up having seen this than I would have just after Saddleback.

    If Bill O'reilly is such a nincompoop, right wing, moron jerk as liberals all think he is why is a Messiah, a man sent to us by God himself lowering himself to be even seen with O'Reilly, not once but several times----:confused:

    I think Dick Morris had it right. He came off as equivocal and didn't appear "presidential". That was my take as well. He really needed to be more forceful. We'll see what the rest of the interview is like I guess.

    Michael, I apologize for the crap I was giving you last night. I don't know anything about you and I was wrong to say the things I said.

    I've allowed some of this to get to personal lately. I did the same thing with Belichick Fan earlier in the week. I know it's me and not you guys.

    I don't see how McCain is some genius about the surge. of course if you increase the troops you'll start winning. the same issue happened in vietnam where there weren't enough troops and they ended up pulling all troops out.

    this war has been a war of perception as played through the media. when the deaths were high the public wanted a pullout and politicians felt it.

    if the US floods the afghanastan and say they even flooded packistan of course they'll win and terrorists will relocate.

    the essential question goes back to why the islamic fundmentalists hate the US and it goes back decades.

    Which begs the question - why was Obama against it ? And why does he still say he would be against it knowing then what he knows now ?

    Because he's a moron when he's not fed answers from his wife?


    Or just because he's a moron, I'm fine either way.

    It's much simpler then that, the man cannot admit that he is wrong.
