President's Foolish Choices: Part 2 of Fox News Obama Interview

Smart President, Foolish Choices

When President Obama gives TV interviews, the treatment he gets is typically soft, if not reverential. This is not because of the interviewers’ respect for the presidency–they were much tougher on George W. Bush–but because of ideological and personal sympathy for the man who now holds the office. Yesterday was an exception–perhaps the first time Obama has ever faced a tough interview. The interviewer was Bret Baier of Fox News Channel, and the president was clearly unprepared, coming across as petulant and evasive. (You can watch it online: Part 1 and Part 2.)

If the rest of the so-called adversary press had been doing its job for the past few years, Obama might not be in the political trouble he is. Then again, he might not have withstood the scrutiny and become president either.

Oh well, that’s water under the bridge. ObamaCare isn’t, at least not yet. And here is what Obama had to say in summing up the case for the legislation Americans fear and hate:

The reason that it needs to be done is not its effect on the presidency. It has to do with how it’s going to affect ordinary people who right now are desperately in need of help.
