Hello everyone I'm Laura Ingraham in tonight for Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us.
Now some brand new polling that's really good news for the Texas governor Rick Perry that we're gonna tell you about in just a moment.
But first let's get right to our top story.
Obama hit the road on -- big box store and then He gets -- go ahead on collision with the Tea Party.
This guy Ryan Rhodes is -- Tea Party leader in Iowa confronted mr.
Obama yesterday at a town hall event.
Over controversial allegations that Vice President Biden had called Tea Party years terrorists.
-- -- -- -- -- I'm married and started to turn and look I would -- I understand I don't want okay.
You guys and you're calling here.
Well what what what when suddenly.
What is -- -- includes almost the whole thing I'm making.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now if you're wondering what Bill O'Reilly thinks about -- store here's your answer.
Why -- -- President Obama on a broad.
Trying to convince people -- doing a good job I don't know I think He probably should be in Washington.
Doing the good job so that then people could say well we don't really need them on the bus.
Joining us now from New York to analyze the bus tour are Barack and a hard place due -- Monica Crowley.
You and Alan calms OK guys now I did this -- -- I kind of see the death star okay.
It's all black it looks kind of baloney I mean I think which you've got some color on -- -- -- -- some red white and blue and I guess they've -- bottom of the campaign bus that.
Is that really the image we want conveyed his dark.
Figure moving across the midwest haven't had been -- -- not -- -- you have her way Laura Ingraham he'd be locked away in the Rose Garden doing the Jimmy Carter Rose Garden strategies that we could lose like Jimmy Carter did Larry I don't for about few months.
Not be added this is like this was planned before.
You know this campaign stuff he's meeting the people he's doing what He should be doing.
And if He did the opposite to say why is He hiding in the White House.
He unlike certain Republicans doesn't have a problem mixing it up with -- and talk with people with whom we disagree is I am I answering directly.
The question out of the American people what a -- Can't you be -- didn't actually answer V Tea Party years question we have been on a -- is lying about terrorists know I've never said the word terrorism well that's -- about not -- at least view I think people there on the road and I -- -- that it but now let's let let's let's move on this this point -- because the president does this -- to -- got all presidents do -- and during election season.
They go on these tours and -- criticizing right -- However that is that we remember most I think so far is the fact that He was confronted by the Tea Party how is -- doing so far for him is that achieving some of these.
Oh yeah we'll so far the one nation under the bus -- not so well for the president because look -- -- that the bus is all black it's like going to a funeral and if you've seen his poll numbers recently at 39% job approval 54%.
Of the job he's doing it's no wonder that the -- is black.
And look -- the seminal moments Laura that really define either campaign or presidency remember entering the -- campaign.
He had that some little exchange with Joe The Plumber.
Where He blurted out his real socialist impulse where instead I just want to spread the wealth around well the last couple of years that's exactly what he's done -- exchange with the Tea Party guy mr.
He really showed that He doesn't have an answer.
Four -- vast majority of Americans who have real issues with the amount it's fun spending and the expansion of government that he's done over the last three years.
Now on what I what I think that -- I think -- -- about the stories that they want the president to be of this it's empathize sympathize with people in the heartland.
Gore kind of frustrated and concerned about the pace of the recovery that and I got a -- that's a bad all by -- why -- it is really it's cheating if this really achieving their goal.
You validity the very fact you see him out with people I'm surprised Sarah Palin isn't following him and her bus like -- you -- -- -- before she quits or bust or like just with the I would talk.
But she should be in the bus behind like -- go to these events and that's that's -- all the oxygen out there where kitty.
But I'd like this bus tour is derivative I'm Sarah Palin while millions copies Sarah -- right -- often less successful Laura.
-- when I at first I think the -- I think Monica not -- something it looks like something.
It sees some of the I don't know it around town you see people being moved from a look at Giuliani Illinois I don't like to elevate them any good Obama does YouTube and have a very DelHomme and you don't know anything god does either of -- -- let's let's let's talk about what bonnet -- thinks He has that number one -- He talked about the fact that.
He's going to have a -- kind of like Jon Huntsman it's not up on my website yet.
But it will be so He does have a plan coming up in September like I'm not -- -- -- -- -- I have been hearing here at home.
-- you know you -- have a plan with that the Bush Administration who said when we talk about the Iraq War you unveils stuff after Labor Day you wait till after the -- we're not talking about but -- -- -- president -- the president's -- I -- -- until after Labor Day it's -- to the doubles you know I I of the big critic of bush actually and it's actually turn I have I.
I mean I had a lot of -- now I don't actually talk about what I'm talking about Obama I -- -- talk about current day let's talk about what one thing He I don't know how standard.
Which was a substantive things He talked about on automobiles and He talked about the need for these these car manufacturers not -- -- to dine out on SUV.
And truck sales and and our our brain room in New York found out -- A couple of statistics 63 point 75%.
Of all vehicles sold in the United States here today have been trucks.
GM's second quarter 92% earnings strong earnings increase because of the global sales.
And because of the huge production.
Of high margin pick up trucks sold in the United States -- as big money.
For Detroit and -- the president comes -- is lecturing to try and all you need to build smaller cars.
And even you can chime -- here but does that help America start working again when the Chevy -- sold a 120.
Volts and among -- -- I don't want.
On doing away with struck his -- his and you need to -- -- -- -- that fuel efficiency and what -- the -- what -- on the global market.
Because people want smaller more efficient cars and you know he's not dictating it he's not taking over the auto industry -- and He did that -- -- he's not here General Motors but -- now profitable after the government saving it.
This comment that He made -- is so outrageous but -- so typical this is all about central economic planning.
This is the guy -- and I think these auto industry whose company.
Nationalizing the auto industry largely nationalizing the banks this is about centralized economic planning.
This is what this guy's all about is all about wealth redistribution and by the way -- He saw all of us driving a toaster oven.
That's driving these -- Connie if you want to.
-- my way -- Detroit and every other auto -- makes most of their money as you pointed out on suvs and trucks because that's what the consumer wants.
By the way hi it's Alan and Alan what you did the stimulus for the bank -- -- ally but what I criticizes how it got Alan I I love the fact.
Thinking of you in a toaster oven don't honestly I don't know being our minds right now overall oil and I'm always prime minister of the night you liberals idea that you wanted to know -- Gas mileage on that on matte black that death Starbucks gone across the continent.
Like that they may they transport people who.
Do you know prison and that's -- -- you want for the president huge carbon footprint.
But -- malevolent that is beneath I think the subway public transportation on after in his mind automobile so.
I don't have called I'm went beyond what -- on emphasizing that the people if you spend that vacation on the box again and that is completely and advising of the people.
There's -- around Martha's and it that is great aunt Sarah Palin Sarah Palin quit her -- vacation.
I -- -- disease the better bus and a better life Alan and Monica.
