Today's -- jewel of Obama's campaign -- -- I mean.
Bus tour and He really came out right of -- gate yesterday from criticizing the GOP presidential candidates.
Two claiming He reversed the recession take a listen.
We had reversed.
Got the economy -- and again created two million private sector jobs over the last seventeen months.
But over the last six months we got to run a -- -- -- so little bit of bad luck costs are Arab -- earthquake anything but you right sir that's what I thought.
Dana the legacy of Obama will be a failure to create jobs failure to grow the economy and it colossal.
Failure to lead you love how you never hold back dishonestly the question he'll.
Crossing -- -- I -- it.
On the campaign.
Bus -- okay.
Any president is running for reelection in the year before there is an actual election will be accused of just running for -- election.
Problem for them is that they're not announcing anything they're going out He is like he's on the campaigns I don't know what they're going to do next August.
The backdrop there kind of looked fake and -- -- campaigning but what's interesting is yesterday.
All of a sudden now the -- is -- -- in September I'm going to announce a plan and I just have this feeling.
The back at the White House they were thinking we have to come up with a plan I can't tell -- -- yeah and then they can go on another customer it.
It you know Bobbie here's a here's what He did He flew to Minnesota on the Air Force One He got on the bus and data for -- don't personal speech -- -- 45 minute rides into Iowa spoke a little bit and then get this.
He took out an entire hotel in Iowa He took another sixty rooms and in a college nearby.
He worked out in the gym He slept in the hotel got back on the bus for 45 minutes again made another stop.
What is it stated that this -- -- believing any of this.
Should assignments evening I'm surprised adolescents Eric Kelly fill units on the issue an oral trader and -- -- -- -- that music campaign trip.
That's what happens when you're running a year out from home but but but if eight up 6060 hotel rooms that's about normal -- -- we'll tell you for a presidential entourage.
And you know something would you give the guy a break just us why he's.
Out there he's got the -- and I'm sure no one has a problem with that being a campaign.
Tort -- note however is -- we're paying -- well then they'll all say that there is layer or the Republicans how hard do nothing congress who have done nothing he's got a rep you met argued.
But He got a record brumbies have nothing but -- -- -- were paying.
We are paying for all our Harry Reid really appreciates and saying -- it's do nothing congress and me don't forget they need to hold on in the senate the Democrats.
But built on what Dana says why would you have a bus tour when you have nothing to announce and look his campaign should have paid for this because as you say Eric it looks really.
That that the taxpayers are doing it and frankly he's criticizing GOP candidates.
Set some simulate the president's really worried me to come out this early in political season.
And are ready start attacking He GOP presidential candidates on something you bill that's not political.
That's bad but I'll tell you what when you have people that have been carrying your water on the far left saying you have no credibility on the issue.
Arianna Huffington first time I agree whether let's take a listen if you can't win her like he's in big -- and that.
None of them -- lock -- I think that Obama -- -- -- -- -- not a good solid good that sitting gripe is that going to move on to joblessness.
I've been saying I've mocked up a month ever since the last state of the India and we never -- -- -- move on to jobs he's not longer credible and.
Bishop you'd think after thirty years in this country air and you learn speak English in the Greek thing is just in just too much lover but it's elect.
And she's looking -- looking at about Leon it doesn't love you know you're gonna win every race I -- around.
Initiation -- raises you about the -- claim -- that did we raise an issue when George Bush landed on the aircraft parents and mission accomplished yes we did not.
We did not outrage we didn't just campaign money should take that which should have paid port Gregory -- -- You -- Paper because it ended up being your campaigns -- yeah.
Let's well it was that was Bush's direct -- writers are saying is that they would this would not be a problem if what President Obama was -- if He was doing something useful.
You know he's He should be driving the bus.
And there should be -- bunch of retirees and their needs to be taken them to casinos because that's what a buses -- war if we're gonna pay for this Bob.
Making useful idiot but output and hypnosis aren't bury him at the end of this three day whatever this thing is -- He spends 45 minutes on a bus and makes a couple of speeches and works out in his hotel.
He's gonna go back.
-- -- -- -- -- Then allow me -- a -- -- up understands ms.
Perino ten days the Martha's Vineyard.
I full at all -- of what -- you and your emotions oceanfront -- yourself.
-- -- you can't figure this out.
Only drew -- I'm asking Dataquest.
I don't know if you're just say He should be spending ten days after this little you know campaign to Larry's going -- I don't think they.
-- I think He does need a vacation thank you I think He deserves a vacation and I think we on the to break from it.
He is not doing himself any favors on this to -- He did get -- the good news today and that stitches -- -- rating agencies said they think America still has a AAA rating.
So that's good that it's not good enough and especially if you're going to go out.
And you're already not going to rise above try to unite the country say something encouraging have something to talk about.
But instead you're gonna go after GOP presidential candidates that what I am telling you -- to go to Mississippi isn't -- wasn't enough -- simply said look Q&A big campaign making campaign did you stop doubting yourself Obama go to that I.
-- thorniest political question isn't it telling that he's going to three states that He did very well in 2000 of course Minnesota.
Illinois and Iowa and he's lost his approval ratings actually -- twelve points fourteen points and seventeen points respectively those are not let me say in Illinois his -- state.
They elected Mark Kirk a Republican senator in 2000 that's.
You know you know and I know the -- -- -- matter this far out because you're gimme against two against you about my favorite -- governor -- why -- -- there there all luck.
