Kroft: Obama´s go-to interview
Politico, by Mackenzie Weinger & Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/25/2013 10:44:02 PM

If news of a joint Barack Obama-Hillary Clinton interview to air Sunday came as a surprise, the man the White House chose to conduct the interview did not. Every politician has his or her preferred interviewer: for President Obama, that’s Steve Kroft of “60 Minutes.” Kroft has conducted more one-on-one interviews with Obama, both as a candidate and as president, than any other television personality. It was Kroft who interviewed Obama days before he announced his candidacy for president in 2007, Kroft who landed the first post-election interview with Obama and his wife in 2008,

if benghazi had happened during pres. bush´s watch, steve kroft would still be doing weekly or bi-weekly investigative shows on it. b/c it´s obama, hardly a mention and it will never come up again in any interview, t.v. show or sunday rounds. incredible.

He is the one who heard George Soros admit to sending 150 Jewish people to their deaths at the hand of the nazi´s just so he could sell their belongings.

He just ignored it.

Croft might surprise us. Surely he is not going to use kneepads for this. If he does,then the only honest reporter left in DC with a major network is Jake Trapper or is it Rapper?

I wouldn´t watch 60 Minutes If you paid me.

Our own side (republicans) couldn´t even find the courage to ask the whereabouts of the 30 or so Benghazi survivors. Those are the stories we need to hear.

It was a white wash by the political elite.

No one asked who gave the order to standdown. Why no rescue attempt etc. Big chicken liverd cowards.

I will never vote for another Demorat or Repubrat.

The country has been taken over by wannabe commies and the Repubs are in lock step useful idiots that they are.

Sunday`s 60 minutes interview could be any interview Obama has already given. The whole thing has been scripted with the prescribed outcome. Barack and Her Spectacleness will pat each other on the back for a job well done. Neither of these characters would allow themselves to be put on the spot unnecessarily. This is how Dems operate. When the going gets tough they circle the wagons and join hands. This `interview` will put the whole Benghazi Disturbance to rest as it fades from the public consciousness.

As for Steve Kroft, well, we know what he is. I`m surprised his shoulders a slumped over from all the water carrying. One thing for certain, you can bet your bottom dollar Hillary will make an appearance on The View within the next month to a standing ovation - and she`ll look a whole lot better than she did in front of the senate panel.

Excuse me for being slightly off topic, but Hillary is getting too much credit for “What difference does it make?” Credit should be shared with Henry Congressweenie Henry Waxman, who’s defense of Bill Clinton was, “So what?”

#13 is absolutely right. Best thing all of us can do is to ignore these *shows*. Because all of the news personnel got the message when the muslims beheaded Daniel Pearl, who was a big time N.Y. Slimes reporter. The message: You do as we say or this will be you. Petty simple. Kroft likes his head.

60 Minutes is the Supreme High Court of State Propaganda. So you watch these commies only to find out what´s next from the nazi socialists. Softball Steve, at least he won´t be on his knees in visual supplication with the crazed little king. Last night, Steve Bannon & Peter Schweitzer of Breitbart, appeared on Sean Hannity and revealed the beginnings, the tip of the iceberg, of political lobbying, cash extraction, fancy restaurants, only the most expensive wines and cars, all in BOOMTOWN, Washington DC, the only boom town that ever happened off the backs of the taxpayers. No oil, gold, manufacturing or hi tech here, just cash extraction by Obama his comrades, all democrats, all republicans, they´re all in it together. They really have no serious arguments between themselves because they are all committed to stealing as much of the fake money the Fed prints as they can get their hands on while it lasts. So simple. Every one of them is an Extracting Thief. Each Congress droid, each close relative, each lobbyist, each outside contractor, each one of these traitors has their own money extracting racket. he nummbers Steve and Peter presented are catastrophic. And the Beltway crooks secret is safe with Diane Sawyer, who, in exchange for being paid multi millions of lobbying sponsor dollars, protects all lobbeyed greed & crime in DC.
The Bannon and Schweitzer truth team are a perfect Breitbart offering, and leave the lies of 60 Minutes in their smoke. If possible, avoid the Sunday Lies of Obama and Kroft. They might make you sick !

Kroft will NEVER ask any tough questions. If Obama mishandles any of the questions asked, Kroft will simply have those flubs edited out of the final product. Kroft will never ask any questions about Operation Fast & Furious, despite the fact that hundreds have been murdered with the weapons Wise King Barky supplied to Mexican drug cartels. This isn´t journalism, it´s fellatio, and Steve Kroft deserves the Golden Kneepad Award.

No one in the MSM will ask the tough questions. Not one of them.

We know who ordered the stand down. The only one that could. Barack Hussein Obama. I was listening to the War Room on Thursday. Quinn and Rose. A man called in to say that his son was a Marine on a naval ship in the Mediterranian on 9/11. His Marine Commandor called the WH directly to say that they were about 2 hours away and that they could send help. Obama ordered him to stand down. How many times did Obama order this stand down?

So this is more confirmation that Obama allowed 4 of his employees to be murdered. The question now is why would he allow that? What American President would not do everything in his power to save his people?

When a video of high school student Jeff Bliss calling out his teacher went viral, a lot of people started talking about the state of our education system and ways to improve it. However, almost a year since the video was posted, not much has changed.

It´s not just carriage horse drivers saying neigh to plans for vintage cars tooling around Central Park. The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars. Doug Blonsky, the conservancy’s president & CEO, told the Daily News that introducing the electric vehicles to the park would be a bad idea. “Forty million people visit Central Park each year, including runners, bicyclists, kids and dog owners,” Blonsky said Wednesday. “Adding vehicles to the mix will make the

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a 19-year-old in a hoodie and baggy jeans was captured on a grainy black-and-white surveillance video urinating into a reservoir that slakes the thirst of Portland, Ore.’s 600,000 or so residents. (Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine? That’s how much the bladder comfortably holds, although the bladder in question obviously wasn’t comfortable. We get the fact that Beervana prides itself on its water supply. The water bureau

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
