O Reilly Obama Interview
February 6, 2011 by USA Post
O Reilly Obama Interview, (AP) – President Barack Obama will not rejoice in his beloved bears, but it is a celebration of the Super Bowl anyway, his beloved team down a little hometown title game. What part of the activities on Sunday might give the more heartburn? The Chicago Bears’ great rivals, the Green Bay Packers, to fight with the Pittsburgh Steelers? Wisconsin sausage in gift baskets carried into Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett? The pre-game interview with Fox, Bill O’Reilly?
Fox is televising the games, if Obama is in the tradition – he sat down with CBS Katie Couric last year, and NBC’s Matt Lauer last year. This is certainly not out of love for Fox. White House aids have denounced Fox as a spokesman for the vitriolic enemies of the president. After some great battles at the beginning of the Obama presidency, the relationship with Fox has turned less contentious.
O’Reilly said he believes he “will interview the most watched of all time.”
Despite the sentiments sometimes difficult, it is hardly the first interview with Fox Obama, and not even his first with O’Reilly. The two clashed in September 2008 when he was a candidate.
Yet, the live interview Sunday afternoon fit perfectly into the theme of Obama bash this year: above the fray – albeit somewhat resigned – and good fellowship. He follows his calls to reduce the temperature of political rhetoric, immediately after his election in November “shellacking”, then after the fatal shooting last March at a meeting in Tucson, Arizona, in the congressional district.
Also, the whitelist Guest House – about 100 people, legislators and officials from both sides, and some chaff: Meaning of Pennsylvania Robert Casey, a Democrat, and Pat Toomey, a Republican, Wisconsin Rep. Reid Ribble, a Republican who represents Green Bay Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, one of two Republicans in the cabinet of Mr. Obama and singers Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez, the husband-wife owners of mid-Miami Dolphins of the NFL.
With the bear away, the losers in the Packers NFC championship game, Obama gave himself neutral – unlike last year when he was “very sympathetic” to the Saints in New Orleans, or last year when he rooted for the Steelers.
Its neutrality is born of pain-hard fan.
Three days after the Bears season is over, Obama visited Green Bay for a political speech and was promptly awarded a Packers jersey and forced to pose for photos. He accused his hosts of “rubbing it”
Later, during a tour of the factory, while acknowledging the long rivalry Packers-Bears and wish good luck Packers, he could not help adding: “We’re going next year.”
Then, last week, Obama has shown his side AFC – and underlined his credentials Steelers – in a speech at Penn State. Noting that he called owner Dan Rooney’s team as U.S. ambassador to Ireland, the president said he “got some love for the Steelers,” too.
No President has ever been to a Super Bowl. Obama said he would go – if the Bears were in it.
But given the mass audience and the hype surrounding the game, recent presidents have developed a need not very surprising to see and be seen on the big day.
President Jimmy Carter has brilliantly and 5 bet with her mother, Miss Lillian, on the outcome of the Super Cup 1979 – and lost, when the Steelers beat the Dallas Cowboys.
In 1985, just hours after being sworn in for his second term, President Ronald Reagan, who played a football player in movies (1940′s “Knute Rockne All American”), threw the coin for the Super Bowl direct White House connection to the game in Stanford, California
In 1998, President Bill Clinton has managed to organize a Super Bowl viewing party in the depths of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Thereafter, a spokesman for Clinton was “incredibly optimistic.”
Even President George W. Bush, whose true passion was baseball (he was a former co-owner of the Texas Rangers), makes telephone winning the Super Bowl coaches during his two terms, with aid by stressing that sometimes remained up ‘to his past normal bedtime to watch the contest.
