Obama on Fox: I supported Roberts when I opposed him  —  Give Barack Obama this: he performed a lot better on Fox News Sunday today than he did in the debate on April 16th.  He stammered less when challenged, allowed his considerable personal warmth to surface, and kept his annoyance and anger in check.
