    Not that he’s sitting down for a chat with Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck. Apparently, there are still limits to how far Mr. Obama is willing to go, five months after the administration’s famous boycott of the rightward-leaning network. Instead, Obama will sit for an interview with anchor Bret Baier, to be broadcast at 6 p.m., Eastern time. (on Weds. 3/17)

    Can Obama really sway any congressional votes by reaching into the heart of Conservative World?

    Why would he sit down to talk with Glenn Beck? Glenn Beck is not a news program, it's a opinion program. That would be like him going on Rachel Maddow.

    why would he appear on fox noise after all the claims that it's not even a real news organization by his staff?

    Cuz their audience dwarfs all the rest of cable news combined?

    Obama long ago proved that his words have no meaning and that he believes his AURA will put anyone exposed to it in his THRALL. It's an Ego Thang.

    It's all part of the Kabuki Theater aimed at creating an impression of bipartisan support for health care. The summit with members of the GOP was a sham; he declared at the end the way they would move forward without the GOP. Appearing on Fox is to enable him to claim that he "worked hard" to educate the public regarding the bill (along the lines of he needed to communicate more).

    When this bill remains unpopular, he won't care. The spin in the MSM and liberal media will crow about what a bipartisan success this is, and highlight a few pathetic case studies of astroturf drones saying how it saved their lives.

    Because he's desperate...? (he only managed a crowd of 200 for his Ohio speech on Monday..:eusa_shhh:)

    Because if he explains obummercare one more time (this is like his 55th speech) those stupid people will finally understand it.....?

    Because despite his lies he knows that FOX is actually a real news organization...?
