In the Super Bowl interview, Obama and O'Reilly tussled over whether the latter is a fair interviewer. O'Reilly would ask Obama if he had done something scandalous. Obama would say no, that's just factually wrong. O'Reilly would defend himself, saying he was just asking questions about what many believe. Obama would insist that they only believe it because Fox News treats it as fact. And O'Reilly would insist that he isn't behind it, he's just asking questions.

    Here is a great list of other questions that Mr. O’Reilly should have asked the President that would have been consistent with the line of questions that he chose.


    1) Are you adding estrogen to juice boxes in order to turn children gay, thus undermining the institution of marriage?

    2) Why are you the only politician to use a Teleprompter?

    3) Why did you invent the executive order to circumvent Congress and become a dictator?

    4) When does Shari'a Law go into effect?

    5) Where's the birth certificate?

    6) Were the Boston Marathon bombing, the Navy Yard shooting and the Sandy Hook massacre false flags to distract from your failed policies?

    7) Weather weapons. Care to comment?

    8) Speaking of the weather, don't you think using a groundhog to predict the weather is just as scientifically accurate as "man-made global warming?" (Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) actually tweeted this yesterday -- and not in the form of a question.)

    9) Do you plan to set off a nuclear device at the Super Bowl?

    10) Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Black Panthers, exempt from Obamacare, taking our guns away?
    Okay so that last question was gibberish, but, really, aren't they all?

    No question about it. It come wit the Democratic and Republican territory
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    O'Reilly forgot to ask if Barak has stopped beating Michelle yet.

    I hope you don't mean to imply that tea party types are as clean as fresh fallen snow in this area?

    I believe that's referred to as "coyote ugly"...not to be confused with "double coyote ugly". That's when the ugliness that was adorning your just chewed off arm was so bad...you chewed off your other arm also, so she couldn't find a "one-armed guy".

    Why do so many (all) reporters allow politicians and political spokespeople to ramble and dodge questions. It seems that it's getting worse. A question is asked and nobody ever answers they just dance around and the reporters let them go. And this is happening on both sides.

    Because media consultants teach you to control the interview. Your mission in an interview is to get your message out not answer all the questions. The easiest way to defer a question is to say "That's a good question, but what's really important here is....."
    This does not work on spouses unless maybe if they are a reporter
