Subject: President Obama and Bill O'Reilly
You know, I don't know why this interview did not occur earlier ... (I know, Pittsburgh and GreenBay Super Bowl is pretty big for a stage) ... Yeah, President Obama came off very (yes, very) presidential....
Unbeatable Obama? ... Stay tuned ... (This young Tea Party in D.C. is something good for reelection ... Which he was running w/ Bill O during this interview w/ super viewership)...
When the GOP had a stronger presence in Bill Clinton's D.C. it balanced Bill & Hillary's administration and Bill Clinton was re-elected for four-more-years.
The White House acknowledges it is governing differently from how it did before the "shellacking. "
"I think the president would admit that he spent more time reaching out to Republicans recently than in previous times," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs has been quoted saying.
Congressional Republicans and the White House will soon enter an era of divided government where both sides will share responsibility for the economy. The White House believes this will lead to more cooperation from the GOP.
But, yeah, we'll see ... a lot can happen on such a big stage between here and there and now and then ...
