This interview is unprecidented because the White House attempted to impose a ban on FOX news from their press pool early in Obama's administration. They didn't even want FOX in the press pool during press conferences, let alone granting interviews to them.
Preview: Obama on 'Special Report'
So why is Obama doing this? From the looks of the preview (above), he's going to strong-arm Baer into being unable to ask relevant questions, which will transform it from an interview into a propaganda lecture. I think that's the reason: to bring the Obama propaganda to a new audience.
In two interviews with FOX Reporter Meghan Kelly, Bart Stupak says he is still prepared to vote "no" on this bill because it includes federal funding for abortions.
Stupak was adamant that he will still guarantee a "no" vote until that language is changed. He has several other Democrats who are prepared to vote "no" as well, though that number has varied in news reports from a dozen to five.
Stupak said in his interview with Kelly that he was prepared to continue his "no" vote, and he was sure that media reports about which members of the original "Stupak 12" have changed their minds are incorrect.
He says it's clear that in page 2070 of the bill that abortion is covered, and that he is just reflecting the will of his constituents and the American people who overwhelmingly oppose federal funding for abortions.
Stupak says, "There is no doubt in my mind that the Democratic majority would like to see public funding for abortion."
Watch the interview for yourself. It's really quite compelling and gives you a peek into the window of the House of Representatives, if we can really call it that anymore.
