I'm not sure why more bloggers didn't cover Obama's time with BillO. They were all very interesting. I like the intro of the segment because O'Reilly is talking about my post when he said "left wing partisans complained I interrupted Sen, Obama. Ideological zombies bore me."
Being a right wing ideological zombie doesn't seem to bother Billie...And he took notice. We know at C&L that the Factor monitors us quite extensively. :-)
I just started watching the first part of BillO’s series of interviews with Obama and I have to say that Bill attacks Obama with a mean spirited and nasty viciousness that he has never used against McCain, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the rest of the administration that he feels are in good standing. It was sickening to watch him interrupt Obama with a scowl on his face every time Barack tries to finish a point he was trying to make...read on (see the video also)
He will never be as aggressive with a Republican. I'll make sure to highlight his behavior when McCain and Palin comforts themselves in a cozy chair next to BillO. it will not be as combative. Make no mistake though, O'Reilly is good at what he does.
Anyway, this segment dealt with taxes for the most part and I thought Obama handled himself very well. They get into a lot of detail which only helps Obama make his case. He could have mentioned John McCain's name in there a few more times, but overall he comes across very strong. You can pick apart the policies...
