Not accustomed to being asked difficult questions about his failures in office, President Obama attacked Fox News host Bill O'Reilly during a pre-Super Bowl interview on Sunday for daring to demand answers about the Benghazi terrorist attack and the IRS targeting conservative groups.

O'Reilly pressed: "Your detractors believe that you did not tell the world it was a terror attack because your campaign didn't want that out. That's what they believe." Obama ranted in reply: "And they believe it because folks like you are telling them that." O'Reilly responded: "No, I'm not telling them that, I'm asking you whether you were told it was a terror attack."
Minutes later, while O'Reilly was asking about the IRS scandal, Obama tried to dismiss the topic: "Folks have, again, had multiple hearings on this. I mean, these kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them."
O'Reilly pushed back: "But don't you feel there are unanswered questions?" Obama reiterated: "Bill, when you actually look at the stuff, there have been multiple hearings on it."
At the end of the exchange, O'Reilly challenged the President on wanting to "transform" America.
