Bill O'Reilly complimented President Obama on Thursday's "CBS This Morning."

Speaking to Charlie Rose, O'Reilly said that the candidates' performances in the upcoming presidential debates would be decisive for winning the election. When asked who he believes is the better debater, he said it was "hard to say."

He erred on the side of Obama. "I've interviewed Barack Obama twice and I gotta tell you the guy's quick," O'Reilly said. "I've interviewed Mitt Romney maybe four times. The governor is much more rehearsed."

"Now whether he can bring his A-game up against a guy who's naturally quick -- Obama, he's quick -- I don't know," O'Reilly added.
