President Barack H. Obama dodged the tough questions yesterday coming from Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly.
He was asked specifically why Susan Rice was sent out to talk about a video being to blame for the Benghazi attack which killed four Americans. He dodged it and never answered.
O’Reilly asked if Secretary Leon Panetta informed him the attack was indeed a terrorist attack when they met within an hour of the start of the attack. He refused to answer. “The fact of the matter is,” President Obama would say. This would be followed by a pre-memorized statement which said nothing.
Asked why Kathleen Sebelius wasn’t fired for the Obamacare Nightmare rollout, again he dodged it. “Bla, bla, bla, not going to answer, bla, bla…”
One question he actually did answer was about the IRS targeting Conservative Americans. He said there was absolutely no “corruption” involved. O’Reilly pressed him about why the IRS head visited the White House 151 times in one year, Obama stated that those kinds of things always (in other words, ‘never’) happen. With carefully chosen words, he said he did not “recall” ever having met with the man during any of those 151 visits.
Since the ‘keep your plan, keep your doctor’ lie, Americans are more willing to at least entertain the thought that the President of the United States is a liar. Hopefully the majority of them saw through his dodging yesterday.
This morning Donald Trump criticized Obama for not wearing a tie during the interview.
