NPR’s Nina Totenberg interviewed President Obama, and it was as hard-hitting as you might have expected:

One of the more glaring efforts to avoid confronting Obama with the truth came when Totenberg mentioned then-Senator Obama’s support of a 2006 filibuster of George W. Bush’s SCOTUS nominee Samuel Alito. However, Totenberg bent over backwards to avoid using the “F” word:

“Role in seeking to prolong the debate”? Liberal media hacks gonna hack!

Now that the White House is trying to get their SCOTUS nominee a Senate vote, Obama now says he regrets his filibuster role in seeking to prolong the debate on Alito in 2006.
