Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,February 3rd,2014

.. as it turns out , yea , there is more .

.. for those who did not get stuff from the previous post , I will post the segments from both parts of the interview [the live part during the Super Bowl pregame show , and the taped part that was done almost immediately after the live segment ..

.. [h/t — Bill O ‘ Reilly . com] ..

.. [link1] to the Super Bowl interview segment ..

.. [link2] to the taped segment ..

.. both are about 10 minutes in length …

.. here is an intro to the transcript for  the taped interview (only part) .. [link] here ..

BILL O’REILLY

One of my, uh, points on the Factor is that poverty is driven by the dissolution of the American family, that is the prime mover, okay.  On your watch, median income has dropped seventeen percent among working families in this country.  That’s not a good record, it’s not all your fault, part of it was this terrible recession, we all know that.  Everybody knows that.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

Okay.

BILL O’REILLY

All right.  But seventy two percent of babies in African American community are born out of wedlock.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

Yeah.

BILL O’REILLY

Why isn’t there a campaign by you and the First Lady to address that problem very explicitly?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

Actually, Bill, we address it explicitly all the time.  I-I’ll send you at least ten speeches I’ve made since I’ve been President talking about the importance of men taking responsibility for their children.  Talking about the importance of, uh, young people, uh, delaying gratification.   Talking about the importance of, uh, when it comes to child rearing, paying child support, spending time with your kids, reading with them.  So, whether it’s getting publicity or not is a whole different question.

BILL O’REILLY

But—

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

This is something that we focus on all the time.

BILL O’REILLY

Would you say it’s been a hallmark of your administration to make that issue, because I don’t believe it has.  I know you’ve given the speeches, and I know you know—understand the problem, because you’re a community organizer from Chicago.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

Yes.

BILL O’REILLY

All right?  But I don’t see the pressure from the Federal government to go in and say, this is wrong, this is—this is killing, um, futures of babies and children.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

Well first of all, I’ve just got to say, Bill, we talk about it all the time, we’ll continue to talk about it, we’re convening, for example, philanthropists and business people, city by city, who are interested in addressing these kinds of problems at the local level.   There is an economic component to it as well, though.

BILL O’REILLY

Sure.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

Because—because what’s interesting, when you look at what’s going on right now, you’re starting to see in a lot of white working class homes, similar problems—when men can’t find good work, when the economy is shutting ladders of opportunity off from people, whether they’re black, white, Hispanic, it doesn’t matter.   Then that puts pressure as well on the home.  So you’ve got an interaction between the economy that isn’t generating enough good jobs for folks who traditionally could get blue-collar jobs even if they didn’t have a higher education, and some legitimate social concerns, uh.   That compound the problem and so we want to hit both.  We want to make sure that we’re putting folks back to work and making sure that they’re well-paid—

BILL O’REILLY

[OVERLAP] But this is—

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

[OVERLAP] We also want to make sure that we’re dealing with some of the social issues that you’re addressing.

BILL O’REILLY

The secret to getting a je—good job is education.  And in these chaotic families, the children aren’t well-educated because it isn’t—it isn’t, um, encouraged at home as much as it is in other precincts.  Now, school vouchers is a way to level the playing field.  Why do you oppose school vouchers when it would give poor people a chance to go to better schools?

.. LEC here again — for POTUS , the pregame (live) interview was an abject disaster . He looked and sounded like a narcisisst and a petulant child . The taped interview was somewhat better , but not by much . He was much looser , but still petulant and pissy …
