That's why why why business -- politics she's talking about.
Do they really I don't -- -- and the kids just semi finalist if I had that not a politician saying that the truth truth is good when I was a good.
-- -- -- -- -- Frequently I like being able to fire people provide services -- but this season campaigns go beyond true.
-- -- serious I'm serious about confronting political propaganda.
That's our shop.
I could never run for political office because I don't keep my mouth shut.
I have skinned people.
All the time.
And sometimes I mean this thing hasn't come out right during a mock presidential debate I once said colleges -- -- for some people.
It is hints but my own producers then turn that into an -- it.
So what a real candidates do when they say things that can be -- badly.
My colleague Andrea ten Terrell says some answers you -- -- -- co host of the five which used to be Press Secretary for the Republican leadership in the house.
So you worked for being here in company in and -- you then.
Lied to us in there in the press about.
Stuff all right never -- it was actually -- certain company and Tom DeLay.
And we had the majority but I gotta tell you John the goal of Press Secretary.
Is to be as honest as possible.
But you can never lie to the media at this cardinal also mile -- -- you know you have to think of a careful way to phrase things it's a bit of verbal gymnastics so for example.
I was working on a senate ad campaign and I needed -- candidate was dropping out of the race but I couldn't tell the media that and the media started to sense that there was turmoil.
So what I -- dropping out of the race Andrea crazy driving out well he's a candidate for senate today.
But and -- in it so or out of the John and right now we're talking about the issues.
Because right now we actually were talking about those issues on Saturday probably not we would have been out of the race.
So you have to think of creative ways to phrase things.
Something that -- Romney trouble recently was when he was caught on tape telling donors -- 47% of Americans are takers not make.
-- -- -- -- So he took heat for it for that how would you have handled that.
Well in this instance.
I think he could have explained it a little bit better.
I think in those situations you take a crisis what what can seem like a crisis a video like that leaked and you turned into an opportunity and I would have let President Obama attack first.
And they use it as a chance to explain.
Myself and say you know what.
Those 47% deserve an opportunity and there's a lot more checks going out the door than there are jobs being created.
And I want to represent those 47%.
And makes -- that they have a chance.
And I will work for them that's what you do you spin Obama's policies which are more checks more dependence and say listen.
That's a shame that's a shame that they're getting -- -- no one wants to get a check from the government doesn't feel good.
Opportunity feels better that's what I'm gonna do for those 47%.
I think he was saying he does feel good to them that they like get the check for -- -- some people like.
I think some -- I mean -- I'm -- so I know I know what happened increased better than anybody and I think giving people free stuff is politically seductive and a lot of people don't wanna work.
But I think if you're gonna spend it.
And that's -- -- asking needed dale that's how I would.
President Obama was criticized for saying this.
You don't build.
The issue is that they kept saying.
You did you took my words -- -- contacts that wasn't the full quote Stephanie Cutter came -- that wasn't the full quote that the issue is John you played the full quote.
He only got worse from there.
But the rest of the quote said things like you had a good teacher paid for by the government yet takes a village could take his ability.
Well why is that a bad argument because they think if they were gonna do -- the right way they would've done it more unity.
Altogether instead it only made business owners.
Feel really terrible about themselves and their as a way they could've done it I think it didn't make them seem so hostile to business and they didn't do that.
And it motivated some business owners to Sally get involved get exactly.
Let's return to governor Romney hears something he -- during the primary that brought him criticism.
I like being able to fire people -- provide services to me.
-- -- I heard.
That sound bite when it came out and John I thought -- that's going to be an ad right away they're gonna clip his words.
He actually forgot -- it should have been bad services.
But I do think that would have been a chance for him to also explain the difference between government.
And the private sector if someone's not producing -- if someone's not helping you.
-- be productive you should have the right to fire them look at the government are a lot of people in government we can't fire on like the current president we got to wait four years.
That when he didn't and then that -- business that serves you could fire all the time and that keeps them competitive it's good yeah.
They didn't say that he didn't and he didn't connect to workers either.
We won't let we've all worked with somebody who is in producing so we get it it means war more work for us and it means less profit -- -- employers.
-- president George W.
Bush was criticized for trying to sell propaganda when.
Two months after the invasion of Iraq -- flew an aircraft carrier in the Pacific.
And then with that big mission accomplished banner behind him he declared.
In the battle of Iraq.
The United States and our allies.
Have prevailed up.
And so all when he -- that everybody was thrilled -- that again.
I think the left tried to spin that it was aghast but because.
It was so unsettling on the ground.
It didn't really meet her what a lot of the news reports where however.
Again if you're going to spin that.
He was correct they did accomplish the mission which they outlined originally the time at the time -- reality caught up with -- in the next few months and then I can't statement look don't -- -- they got into the whole nation building issue that initial goal was to topple Saddam Hussein.
They accomplished again -- -- spinning this I say it was also a nice pat on the back to our men and women in uniform who accomplished tackle what's wrong with that.
And my favorite thing as a Press Secretary John was the oh how dare you response to ask Press Secretary you would say to the press how Geary knew how to -- the military how dairy.
Right how -- -- he did that he did that on -- on the battleship I mean it was -- so idiotic we accomplished little oil.
What would not now we're on television -- just saying how you feel what the truth is but when you re doing this spin.
-- -- -- Sometimes I wouldn't say dirty I think I felt confined.
And when I left politics and I left being a spokesperson for governors and senators and member of congress I said.
I'm just gonna speak for myself now and it's much more freeing to be able to -- not your interview cleaner now.
Works for me it's more free when you can just say what you -- say whatever you wanna say and I -- I would never re talking points and I would never be mired by either party's positions.
And I hope to do that every single day here on this network.
-- Thank you Andrea I hope you -- So politicians to avoid having to deal with the likes of Andrea trust his stick to the script they say the same things over and who.
That's built to last an economy that's built to last an economy that's built the last.
I'll come often I just stick it makes them sound so phony.
And Romney does -- -- Is still -- -- -- gaga says that repetition.
Is probably Smart.
Our god approaches political propaganda from a business angle is a marketing consultant and author of light economic -- book about.
Earning your customers' trust.
Katherine -- who wore his managing editor of the wonderful reason magazine and you agree with me that this is -- Patience tedious.
But the fact is that these guys are -- they can either say the same thing every single day unto eternity.
Or they can try and makes a couple little bit say what they really think at which point they will inevitably be accused of having made -- gaffe.
Because no human being okay and can mix it up and not say something that keeps him from being elected that you know you spend a lot of time in the public -- I think you probably know how hard it is to say exactly what you mean every single time.
Michael Kinsley has a great line which is that a gaffe is a politician accidentally telling the truth I think that's.
You know that's something we can all relate to.
Roy you say this repetition works what seems to me it's stupid because I paying attention to -- a reporter.
Yeah most people are not paying that much attention while I think I mean you see it in business all the time that that they run ads.
Over and over again the idea is that if they run it enough times it'll be memorable and I think personally got also separate -- ability from believability.
Just because somebody remembers a message doesn't necessarily mean they believe it.
Now in terms of what people believe you also -- -- good when the candidates say in the debate -- a personal story.
Yeah I think that people connect to people and that's a fact the EC over and over again that's why.
Politicians do everything from bringing in stories of the woman that they met in Ohio and what she told them about her life.
All the way through to shaking hands and and kissing babies the oldest political cliche ever hit makes me want to throw up I can't believe voters like this.
Let me -- Romney at the debates and said oh my wife was at a rally in Denver woman came up and with a baby in her arms and -- and my husband lost his job can you help us.
Yeah right it just feels it's not -- -- people.
What's that you know I think it's the best the people got I think both of these guys are just trying to be as human as they can't.
It's ridiculous right why should these guys have to pretend to be humid there.
They -- -- presumably they are here and I thought we'd like to see a little bit of evidence of that occasionally on the trail but.
You know as we saw what some of the clips were playing earlier.
When you get out there and say.
The casual phrasing the kind of thing you would say at a bar to your buddy because on C span -- goes on CNN and -- -- there forever.
-- let's talk about your expertise here a business strategy guy you've counseled Intel IBM and -- things they do politicians could do.
Yeah and I think one of the biggest things are seeing in in in a lot of business marketing.
Is -- finally taking.
A different approach than the spokesperson model that we'll know which is you get one person -- guy or girl to go out there and talk on behalf of the company.
And now what you're seeing is all of these companies putting their employees.
Front and center in the IBM campaign is a great example of that smarter planet.
There's a person who stands up and says this is what I'm working on I'm -- -- And now all of a sudden it's not just the CEO it's somebody who's working there but saying I'm really passionate about -- I do.
-- goal was honest about their price mark yet cost goes and -- actually won because they say publicly whirlwind of a -- -- the stuff that we -- you 15%.
And actually cost of -- a lot of value out of that not only by having super super loyal customers out there.
But also by treating employees fairly because they don't have an employee turnover employees stick around dominant.
All companies do these focus groups and they ask people what do you think about our product.
And usually it's a super secret thing.
Dominoes put these people into ads and the people said you -- taste like cardboard and you saw states like catch up.
And they put those people -- -- and they said you know what we heard you and we're not gonna try and distract you with some sort of cinema encrusted.
Instead we're gonna actually fix our pizza network that's what they did not work they got record sales right after that I mean it worked.
Thank you -- it and Catherine.
Coming up in Coulter will -- and Mitt Romney against my criticism and Ellis Henican will defend President Obama.
But first you remember this controversy -- political last.
The people behind that are here and they will reveal its sequel.
To us for the first time here tonight.
Like this and says what needs to be -- about America's government.
-- an actual tax -- blew me get remain.
-- -- No questions government -- you to death.
The campaign manager responsible for that is mark block he ran Herman cain's presidential campaign does he look.
Familiar he's not off on a TV but you may know him because he appeared in this other Herman Cain.
We can take this country back.
Ever since mark block has been known.
As the smoking my -- because nobody smokes on television anymore.
What we thinking.
We're trying to get a message across -- that the Cain campaign was nontraditional.
And knew that we had to do things totally out of the box.
Catches the public's attention.
It was kind of like in your face.
This leave us alone and it was.
I'm a smoker it's not your business exactly leave people to do.
To indulge their vice that was the government is taking way some whenever liberties.
That we just wanted to be in your face had no idea that it would explode the way it did.
Two million people saw it on YouTube.
In over 24 million people sighed as it was played around the networks so it accomplished a couple goals that we had.
Was to show that McCain campaign was indeed outside of the box but also think -- get that earned media.
Because we don't have the budgets.
That the other campaigns had we -- day one John.
That we would not have the finances.
To compete on the Airways it's fascinating isn't it that you took a man from nowhere in January.
And for four straight weeks at the top of the polls without spending a dime.
-- you pay for that it is for the diamond TV stations that add costs 386 dollars.
Maybe the technique work I would like to believe that this idea of government should leave us alone is popular with people.
I could tell -- -- -- on a thirty day.
Thirty city three events in -- city.
Thirteen state tour you have a new group expelling -- thinking campaigns over but he now leads the job creators solutions get jobs -- solution as say organization of coal formed by him Bernie Marcus the co-founder of home people want.
And Herman Cain whose mission is to educate the public and issues that are facing us today -- educating people that government doesn't always make life better.
The government has to get out of the way where this economy in this country is going down the tubes.
-- the chicken hand we're at it.
When people say this is ridiculous this is low budget it's silly it's it's beneath the importance of politics and yet.
On Super Tuesday.
It was one of the most viewed YouTube on videos out there dislike the smoking ad in the other Indy ads and we more hits than all the other guys running there.
Commercials on the combined yeah that's.
And the little girl who says any questions she's the director's daughter yes Tom.
This director he would he works for other people.
In addition to this poking me -- One as a congressional candidate who's running in California against Nancy Pelosi good luck to him.
The media let's give him much attention so -- director came up with this is strangling job creations will see.
You're very -- under a mountain of debt.
What do you want 500.
Million -- marriages should lose their jobs done.
Burnham who -- -- is there is I am.
John this -- business.
And and he is the candidate but really zombies you could argue that the chicken man which her love and zombie which I think is sort of silly.
It -- to dismiss the candy just.
-- just the opposite John nobody was -- pay -- attention to this candidate until that ran.
Now the RNC is in that race and people are paying attention -- had just the -- that was supposed to.
Now you've just.
Made a new smoking me man.
Let's take a look at -- we're seeing it for the first time.
On this program and today I'm pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term of office and -- will be held accountable.
If I don't have this done in three years.
That is going to be a one term proposition in response to.
A video that area -- video this it.
But crude and disgusting -- They look good.
And what what's this got to do.
We're hoping that it goes viral is the first one did.
And the message is quite simple as this president has been blowing smoke for the last four years and it's time from -- -- Thank you mark block the next -- -- propaganda from president over Barack Obama he said he would create.
Green jobs he'd reduce the deficit.
I ticked off about what he said.
-- is what he ducks but my next guest will defend our president.
-- comes and political ads but.
More often the candidates themselves out propaganda and make promises they don't keep.
Say things they don't -- sucked up -- special interest groups.
President Obama does that look at this clip from his debate against John McCain.
Actually I'm cutting more than I'm spending so that there will be a net spending cut.
I what that spending caught he increase spending to three point eight trillion dollars.
But Newsday columnist Ellis Henican says I'm wrong to be so critical.
Why am I wrong he's saying that got a -- and -- spent like a drunken sailor well listen we don't want a president who is going to say something way before he becomes elected and then feel like he's completely regionally.
Tied incidentally he can't deal with events as they have been a lot of stuff happened analyst for -- Some of it was pretty bad and you want a president who's in -- being flexible for you.
What he was being really flexible and can it mean if he should head when he debated Hillary Clinton he said.
He complained that government spends so much money and programs don't work that don't work and he was gonna eliminate a whole host of -- We need to eliminate a whole host of programs that don't work and I want to go through the federal budget line by line.
Page by page programs that don't work we should cut.
It would be great if he did but.
He did almost not.
It's just why it won't all hold once it.
I mean there's an awful lot of money this -- -- much of it -- I don't support but the reality is is that we entered in the early days of his administration.
That nobody was ready for that nobody anticipated the experts didn't warn us about and we spent the last could have -- one of -- yeah I think you know -- knew that when he was saying these things -- recession had already begun the housing bubble had burst the year actually I don't think anybody knew it was going to be as bad as it turned -- today.
So because it was bad he passed -- he really meant to cut there I mean there.
There are no programs that don't work he could he cut he cut back a couple tiny.
Doing this article clearly there a lot of things I think it is so let me do what he says it's gonna do this if he was here is the rehab.
Presidents we expect to wrapped present our values in the war and one of those values is being careful and cautious about the money we spent.
But there's a lot of all the family we wanna have that opportunity in the society want to train people for the future we wanted to do some things that protect the weakest among us in there or.
A whole series of all the -- that we've come together as a people.
At some of them cost a lot of money what all of them seem to cost a lot of money and I would think the president is just selling its propagated to -- After inheriting a one trillion dollar depths.
I signed two trillion dollars spending cuts in the law.
Spending cuts to one million of them and they don't think they cook just -- what he was saying is that.
After -- over the next ten years instead of increasing spending by the ten trillion I wanted to.
I'll increase it by just seven and a half true.
It isn't that the C one -- common goal only was two trillion dollar spending cotton well it.
It's EZ in kind of raw and she wrote to say OG ocean's films well okay but let's look -- -- real -- Is looking at these things and making judgment -- value judgments.
About what it is that we wanted to do was a society do we wanna spend money on defense we wanna educate our kids do we wanna have cops and firefighters do we want -- -- Koppel firefighters at the local governments responsibility while sometimes the federal government gets into that -- -- -- that he was coming and these -- she's keeping -- -- Embassy the 151000.
Americans in Iraq he wants to spend more on defense not as much as Romney but more.
Let's suspend -- -- Everything well let's just listen I'm not gonna disagree with you and fight you and every one of these the issue because there are some things that I wish we would kind of ideas would -- get out of Afghanistan look at Millwood -- an -- There -- things and if so is knocked.
I don't think for any reasonable person to defend all spending programs at all -- but what we have on our politics really in the end.
Is a fight over priorities -- and here's one last reason why I don't trust your favorite candidate.
-- -- -- -- -- What I'm not going to be doing is using Justice Department resources.
To try to circumvent.
State laws on this issue.
And he absolutely hands he's -- more of these marijuana dispensaries than Bush's people did.
John I gotta tell you.
You're eloquent on that I like the early Obama there that I did -- later Obama it's a huge waste of money we could do all of always is a -- -- say now why is he a hypocrite.
-- you know I think he his.
Bowed to political pressure on it I think that a hole the in the second term he's gonna come around to do -- -- -- of that village you and I pressure -- because that is truly.
The biggest -- out there's that failed war on drugs.
The real wars -- big.
Big expense as well but -- was -- we can agree on something thank you Ellis had a hand stay with us -- the audience will quiz you later but coming off.
I want to trash Mitt Romney and -- is here to defend him.
Several years ago I heard -- -- People haven't had instituted I was thrilled this -- he understands markets free markets he cares about limiting government.
Finally a politician who understands the -- which regulation -- opportunity.
But -- the official campaign began when I've heard since is pandering.
He wants to sort of trade war with China he wants to -- -- the military he sounds like a big government guy.
But the author of the new book mugged and Coulter is here to -- I'm wrong about that.
Even -- -- he's you say in these big government things.
-- get what you call pandering is called getting elected.
-- and you now.
The golden boy of libertarians.
Rand Paul nearly blew up his campaign when he gave -- libertarian answer on the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
And suddenly he was pandering on that -- John.
Stossel are let let's play some clips Romney says he'll repeal obamacare -- be but he wants to keep the -- -- parts.
Number one pre existing conditions are covered under my plan.
Well let's pop -- nobody likes the idea that if you're pre existing condition it's not covered.
But that's not insurance that's -- -- I mean this is what our entire segment should be on I am completely blowing off your obsession with drug legalization here.
But -- health care I mean if we do not repeal obamacare in the next few years America takes repeal -- -- keep the expensive parts Brooke -- also -- -- takes cover the -- is stands for what he's saying a thousand years of darkness this is why you have to vote for I don't care if it's Mickey Mouse.
Ands and or big -- And might -- Romney is far more free market than any recent Republican candidate including George Bush what.
What Romney is talking about here is the free market and as you say preexisting conditions popular like big number that's not the -- if everybody that's the cover preexisting and missions and usually it's a handout and somebody said every minute has to come read the answer is the free market in its popular it -- be provided on the free market.
I -- you -- -- pressures aren't we can't even think -- including buying insurance for your unborn children you don't know what they're treating existing conditions are the fact couldn't talk about pre existing conditions.
She knows that well there's a market for that.
I think the free market will respond to that instead we don't talk about the problem with health care and the reason Romney care was a libertarian solution.
For a governor to provide because a governor can't repeal while the federal government -- Is is is that right now you already have government intervention government pays for nearly 50% of all health -- -- American it is already 50% socialist.
Romney is gonna roll back -- free market magic.
And everything you want congress is going to be covered instead right now you can't buy insurance it wasn't also covers and marital counseling -- all true all that -- -- legs and -- a free market would you just give you all kinds of choices but he's saying we're gonna force every.
Cover preexisting you can shoot real covered the free market -- -- -- -- -- -- say OK it's OK another big government Republican topic increased spending in the military.
We're going broke we spend more than all the other countries combined -- as much how -- -- fourth.
-- -- -- for one thing.
-- -- I do trust Romney to cops a lot of government more than Ronald Reagan did -- This is a free market guy he saves companies from going into bankruptcy -- the Olympics are going to bankruptcy.
In Massachusetts the Soviet Union street.
He balanced the budget and cut taxes.
You need someone will go -- the budget line by line and and look at the things that can be cut he says he's gonna send things really sustain military spending by two trillion you know with the booming economy we're gonna now on -- Romney.
We will have so much money we won't know where to spend it.
-- the military is.
Hi I'm moving on here's something your candidate said.
The -- concludes a -- big hit but that's what.
I'm not gonna cut education funding.
I don't have any plan to cut education funding.
Education is supposed to real local responsibility of the federal government spending a hundred billion dollars wasting it intruding he can't even cut that.
This is unfair you know -- admitted he would need in the green room but this was the one even I couldn't have stepped up -- a up.
But I'm just say -- -- and in his defense on education news and her over and over again that we.
For example with that money for disabled kids or on kids with special needs -- -- we want -- that money to the parents want them pick the school.
He's talking about vouchers there.
He said we -- some money back -- to the local government and the state government now once fortunately and I know why not just not send it to Washington the first place I know why no John.
What he has to feel like -- -- and I think we're in the process of I'm sending it back to the states which is alerts have been in the first place.
Another answer that made my eyes -- was when President Obama brand.
He fought for the Lilly Ledbetter act which allows women more time to sue companies.
For alleged wage discrimination.
Mitt Romney seem to agree that women need special treatment -- We took a concerted effort to go -- and find women.
Who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet.
I went to a number of women's groups and said can you help us find folks I brought us -- binders full of -- women.
Aren't the binders thing has been discussed but couldn't he give a free -- answer and say.
Mean women are discriminated against women are paid less because women make different choices and in a free market if somebody didn't discriminate they lose out.
Think Candice is why -- -- women.
I'm USA I cheered when that happening especially when liberals were so stupid to find something humorous -- an office product binders of women.
I mean this is the way it's supposed to work you do want to break things like the old boys network and people are just.
Career politicians this is the way affirmative action.
If that's what you want to all you women need affirmative action when they're dominating college as you dominate much of -- -- is they are now the glass ceiling is -- Yes not only an -- we nag you to death live longer and take all your Social Security but.
For the winning Romney didn't was he got more qualified women -- -- -- expect expanding the search that is the way it should work expand the search against the best people.
One last complaint about your candidate for now anyway.
One day one I will label China a currency manipulator.
Maybe -- terror he wants to sort of trade war he wants people to have to pay more.
The thing -- thinking you are having a knee jerk reaction to word tariffs this is a major problem with China and probably want to give -- stuff Kelli arena and an end that's not the issue John stock -- be an issue this way is the intellectual theft and he is about over and over again -- in the debates and -- libertarian -- now.
On is very concerned about intellectual intellectual -- why China in -- I agree but he's talking about could only manipulation.
And manipulation but that just means that.
Chinese people suffer in order that we can buy cheaper tee shot and we win if we continue for five more seconds on currency manipulation I'm going to need a bottle -- no doubt us.
All right but please stick around our audiences eager response some of what you -- and then I'll show a campaign ad that really makes sense to me.
We've only got drawn -- -- you want -- -- I don't have some minute now you get man.
-- your comments or questions for my guest columnist Ellis Henican.
And Ann Coulter author of -- First from my FaceBook page juror David jerk Gerald asks.
Ask them both to name something their guy was completely wrong about.
-- -- -- I -- it's not exactly being wrong conservatives are not enthusiastic about the war in Afghanistan I think most conservatives think it would have been better if Mubarak.
Had stayed -- not been replaced by -- brotherhood I think that's very hard to explain Egypt.
In Egypt and moreover Republicans that look it's over Republicans aren't Democrats we don't we don't criticize military action that's already been taken.
By conservatives understand that and and I'm I don't speak for Romney I don't know if I'm right about that but I suspect that's just an example Republicans not criticizing military actions already been taken.
-- -- -- Sending the bush tax cuts obviously didn't get as the bank we needed it extended the unfairness.
Up and -- -- economy.
And it made the members of the UKS so much about a whole lot worse.
-- taxes not high enough OK yes yes there.
Makes you think that Romney's going to provide this blooming economy that -- -- -- talking about.
I'm wondering did it in Massachusetts he's done -- with companies over and over again he is exactly what the nation needs now.
As he says the government doesn't create jobs we got trickle down government we need government to get out of the way.
Just to repeal obamacare if nothing else happening if -- Romney did not do what I expect him to do with the economy simply to repeal Obama care.
Is going to be work miracles on the economy.
Yes sir CIA.
Operative told Washington Post senator Philip -- that journalists' union bought and paid for for less than.
The price of a call girl.
And -- 300 dollars a month.
Do you think Fox News journalists are journalists in general are guilty of taking money from the government to push probably -- and you think Fox News.
Is guilty of taking money from the government and -- How to become open the call girl up price personal driving he's got a lot of -- I'll I'll answer CIA and I'll answer that I understand people believe that button hole -- that the government.
If they tried to -- I was a consumer reporter businesses didn't even try to -- that that you can't keep these things a secret if they tried it would get out it's not happening.
People -- stupid ideas have them all by them -- and -- Who's next.
I was struck -- pretty much all the presidential debates that the moderator is especially that lovely Candy Crowley.
Seem completely biased.
And I was wondering how long the Republicans and let them get away with this.
I couldn't ugly green who are -- -- -- announced.
I could not bridge -- do not Chris swallows and I mean one great thing about the candy -- the growing debate was it was so biased but I think the rest of America saw what it is right wingers are screaming about.
Analysts here agree they were biased on your side you know what I -- people little complain about the officiating when they think their guy won I mean that's really -- the -- -- Won't let you put him into the room you see how you -- -- -- if you don't like the way cannot only guide TV was unfair in the -- was unfair.
-- Just put -- without moderator is I think that would be fun today.
Yes what's the challenge that a president faces in actually trying to cut government programs why is -- so hard for any president.
To cut government programs well we'll political realities and every one of those programs has a constituency that -- by and so.
Any there's a reason it was there in the first place people pushed it in and got it done through congress.
And so anytime you want to cut somebody loves every last one of them.
Thank you Ann Coulter -- -- -- hi -- How we're going broke and we have to cut and we haven't had another good enough job.
Coming up what I wish President Obama wouldn't -- Governor Romney I'd like to apologize to you I did you wrong.
