“Who’s going to win the Super Bowl?” Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly asked President Obama at the end of a pre-Super Bowl interview notable for the anchor’s constant interruptions.

“I can’t make a prediction.  I don’t know,” Obama said during the live White House sit-down. “These guys are too evenly matched.  I think it is going to be 24-21, but I don’t know who’s going to be … 21.”

No, they weren’t evenly matched at all. The Denver Broncos looked like spectators as the Seattle Seahawks literally ran away with the Vince Lombardi trophy before the halftime show. The final score was 43 – 8. All it means is that Obama is a better president than football analyst.  Of course, O’Reilly and his audience would beg to differ.
