I wouldn't want to bet against Obama in a Shell & Pea game!
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
C S Lewis

Personally I am glad to see that a reporter is aggressive and not easily deterred when questioning the President. Thats how it should be.These guys are supposed to be held accountable to the people who elected them. Sadly thought tv and print reporters defer to the titles and what you end up with is an interview that is usually a waste of peoples time. I would like to see more of this type of interview.
I do however wonder that if a Republican was being interviewed, if the tone and tenor would have been the same. I just don't remember an interview with any Republican on Fox that was as aggressive.
Maybe it is because most of the time they actually answer the questions asked???? What ever, I don;t know, but I do know that obongo has a way of NEVER answering a question that he does not want asked. Good at answering those he has planned for, but avoids the others like a golden avoids water

And what's different about a president wanting to push his agenda? Surely you don't think this is the first president to push his agenda?? I think it's happened some 40-odd times in the past.
What was a historical oddity was a president who was seated by the supreme court for one term, and winning with a minority of the popular vote (that by itself has happened before) AND using recess appointments, reconciliation, and other parlimentary tactics to "shove policy down our throats" (to paraphrase UB) clearly against the will of the American citizenry. That was the closest we've become to functioning as a monarchy since the day George Washington walked away from D.C. to return to Mt. Vernon, and set the tone for presidents NOT ruling by edict.
God Bless PFC Jamie Harkness. The US Army's newest PFC, but still our neighbor's little girl!
You are right Jeff, GWB showed the same arrogance, I remember his speech about having political capital and willing to spend it...and because of his arrogance what did we get..we got Barack Obama....
in this day of instant polling and focus groups, why is this administration just blowing off what the people DON"T want....where are there polls showing the American public want this bill or approves of its NON TRANSPARENCY...does anyone on here know what is on this bill...of course not...the Congress as a whole doesnt even know, but they want us to accept it because its the right thing to do...
