Obama continued the tradition of appearing on the network of whatever station carries the S-bowl on game day. This was his 6th consecutive year doing it. The last time he faced Bill O. was 2011. He likely knew there'd be Benghazi, the wobbly ACA rollout/not firing Sebelius, IRS scrutiny of conservative groups, and "you can keep your health plan" on Bill's menu--and he would have been right. One testy exchange (among several):

"Your detractors believe you did not tell the world Benghazi was a terror attack."-------->"They believe it because folks like you tell them that. These things keep surfacing because you and your station promote them."

Before the taping of the interview, O'Reilly said to cohort Megyn Kelly that he was "not nervous." He added, "He is not a bad guy. I think people misread him."

....definitely a claim that Bill can't make about himself...
