Just saw this interview during the pre-game show. Look, I'm not the world's biggest Obama fan, and I think O'Reilly asked a lot of questions that need to be answered, but I say it was pretty tacky to use the Super Bowl and it's huge audience to grill the President. Just came across as uncomfortable and inappropriate for the occasion. Bad form, Bill!

Seems like Obama got off a good dig at Fox News, too, consistent with the combative approach he's taking toward the right in general. I'd say both sides got what they wanted, and Rupert Murdock won. Same old, same old.

I think that politicians in general should stay out of sports.

OK, throw out the first pitch at a baseball game or whatever but don't they have more important things to worry about? Obama does a lot of that thing like filling out his March Madness brackets on SportsCenter but by no means is he the only one nor was he the first.

Fine, enjoy sports if you want to but I don't care what team you root for and don't need you pandering to me trying to sway my vote.

It's even worse when a politician tries to talk sports and completely mangles it like Mayor Mumbles Menino of Boston. He can't even get his local names straight.

I didn't see the interview before the Super Bowl but I did look at it later. It just seemed contrived, partisan and unnecessary. Can the politicians please just work on things like unemployment, the economy, health care, foreign policy, etc., etc...Time Out
Quality. Consistency. Variety. Reliable. Fair. Friendly

Nope. They work on three things:
#1 Getting elected
#2 Getting reelected
#3 Taking care of the moneyed folks who will take care of them if/when they fail at #2

All I really want from Mr. Obama this year? Please please please don't pick a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament bracket. Pick a #2 or #3 or a #15, I don't care. Pick a school in a red state with a vulnerable Dem senator--pander away if that's what it takes. I'm casting my vote against chalk.

I don't have any problem with politicians getting involved in sports per se. If somebody doesn't like it, they can always change the channel! It's one of those things that they often flub up and risk negative criticism, though, especially when they make it apparent that they don't know what they are talking about and it is obviously a weak attempt to pander to voters. One of the few good things about lame duck Presidents is that they no longer need to try to get anybody's vote anymore.
