So according to Politico president Obama's worst critic who is actually Obama himself.
Well how refreshing.
So -- Obama that's exactly one critic of the president in the mainstream media.
Did the wide web site points out that quote Obama's self critiques began early in his term.
A notable departure from his predecessor George W.
-- so true.
Bush had no interest in himself but for Obama thinking about Obama it's a full time job the puff piece -- -- Obama supporters see the public self doubt as proof.
Of the president's honesty.
Itself even when the president admits he's imperfect that just makes him a more perfect it's like when you're asked to name your biggest fault and a job interview when you say.
Sometimes I care too much -- people -- a perfectionist.
Or I can only squat thrust 400 pounds.
I said that when I interviewed -- -- it is it still didn't get the job but of the bubble were really his biggest critic -- -- say something like my biggest weakness is that I'm not very good.
And said he says shovel ready.
Was not a shovel ready as we expected.
Yeah you can really tell how Obama is torturing himself and introspection as he eyes those putts on the eighteenth Green.
I think -- that you have to admit that was a big slobbering kiss for Obama was that that was that was running your.
That we all sat -- all senator and said Obama blames everybody else first problems and and -- Kyrie is.
Taking credit himself -- problems and -- you don't know.
-- -- to do that it's a great point but we needed segment -- So I'll just say we conveniently forgot about last week and we did this segment but Dana what bush or any Republican ever gets a thing like this they where they -- that its.
It would depend on who's writing at the but.
When I when I was president I remember that George Bush at every press conference would be asked.
Don't you hate yourself mean aren't you mad is that how can you sleep at night I mean honestly like how do you think that it was never going to be enough self flagellation.
President Bush for them to be satisfied and President Obama I find that out a little bit -- funny I was actually thinking about that -- do you think of any sale I worked too hard yet that you had in your mind a lot outside about on bringing up the point anyway that's okay.
I'll forgive you he adds he just didn't.
I guess you could say that President Obama is a beta mail because he's not afraid to be self deprecating.
But the last beta mail we had was Jimmy Carter.
Right Jimmy Carter and Obama is doing a lot worse than Jimmy Carter and you do not want to be compared to Jimmy Carter and his teenage -- out just came out with some new numbers say showing that Obama.
Has the lowest approval rating of any president in the history of Gallup approval -- if you think that.
-- -- is a great it only goes back as far as it goes back but.
It's let's go back a while Nixon 50%.
Rate in 54 a bombs at 43% by the way Truman 54 and remember he's had earning his campaign.
After Harry Truman running an anti congress -- I'm a little upset about that -- -- to political I thought I was Obama's worst critic I.
Was a lot lower than 54 that you should that you were -- at this stage -- -- -- the same thing in the Truman show which was a terrible -- now looking -- I don't.
Yet now this is gonna point out it's all Q when he sits on my worst own worst enemy at -- -- the -- -- it'll be a one term president federal fix this thing.
Except for the fact that he's.
Put five trillion dollars on to the national debt in three years and if you.
Extrapolate that I don't take it -- hold him -- -- you are happy to explain okay go -- explain it to me about the help help me out there ahead.
And then a President Obama -- they've been a president McCain -- there would have been about.
Three trillion in increases in entitlements in the national debt -- However you're wrong with -- numbers once again I know you know about -- president had -- gain or president conservative.
-- may have stopped.
Adding to the national that we would actually not any good the national debt as recently as 2000 -- -- -- -- -- you question can you stop paying interest on national that.
Absolutely not can you -- paint -- security payments.
You couldn't reforms all the security and -- like oh yeah.
As Bob and I OK to do it totally it's not what we just assume there is an all of -- earlier this month or month long worst critic not.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Act like you because he is his worst critic I -- I got to bring it -- Governor Christie.
Monday according to -- Obama.
Basically he said they blamed this super committee's failure to reach an agreement on President Obama obviously calling a bystander in the Oval Office suite -- eight.
This sitting to the spin coming out of the administration.
About the failure of super committee.
At the president knew it was doomed for failure so he would get involved.
Well the what the hell are -- paying you for.
It's doomed for failure so I'm not getting involved.
What what have you been doing exactly.
When you're president it's not good enough just to say -- get it done there.
The C -- sort that he didn't I can -- its -- sort of as a dinosaur.
The second Arctic hectares and -- we had -- yeah if he's so it gets.
You can see Christie being so whereabouts of the that he didn't entered the race no I think that what he's proving is that he's probably going to be if it continues on this -- that -- be Mitt Romney's best asset in the campaign and you know I actually campaign for.
Not well not -- -- you just say the guys.
You have the guts himself to run as of -- -- the -- needs to do that go back to Jersey and try to.
-- state -- which by the way just loading up because they think Christie did because stimulus money.
So again please just shut up if you're not only get up and run that that that don't criticize how you out of running either I -- I got a record.
Let's -- can make statements and governors and senators make statements all the time -- are critical of the president he makes some very valid according what does the president commissioned his own deficit commission to put sorry they're pretty similar.
Think he did nothing on he has made no effort to reform entitlements he's made no effort.
To balance the budget which was a campaign promise in 2008 he's ducking for cover because he knows.
If he jumps into a tight he's gonna get any can't afford outside of George Bush -- you name me one of these Republican candidates for president who's and who's come up with a entitlement.
Program the -- Paul Ryan Newt Gingrich -- -- -- all right not a presidential candidate not yet I'm Ronnie I got a good.
And any other way -- -- one that was gonna cut six trillion all -- me that he is not running for president this is good for the -- is club while he is not -- -- reg guides yeah.
That's -- in a little bit here of course.
Q well you wanna test of what had to have an idea Chris Christie asked what are we paying you for Obama there's a better player is a great question but the better question is.
Why do you have our checkbook in your hand you're spending money like -- drunk and he does it.
What what Christie did that your your kind of saying we had a guy from Jersey -- -- busy two unions in the room.
And he said look we're gonna reform.
Pensions and benefits and bring the state backed back to health and he's doing that that's what Obama could do but -- you know.
-- did he canceled tunnel to New Yorkers were Smart out for that I think that makes a lot of sense.
This guy's the -- I was -- US money didn't you want more Donna though we didn't know I was before the stimulus.
But you know that thing that I can back -- you say Gingrich got a -- for -- -- -- I don't believe I've seen it maybe it's out there.
And forget Ryan -- -- the guys -- -- -- -- that you have the most important when I don't actually not ready for pressed on asking you all to tell me in this stellar group of Republican candidate for president.
Name me one of the significant statement that hit man on the -- entitlements yes tell -- what -- the you want to sit -- literally burned to the entire town you don't because you get out even you are smarter you are politics can't -- does doesn't exist but it does exist.
But we don't we don't wanna waste our time talking about -- -- And I want to talk about something else video was attained by the daily caller exclusive video.
Illinois senator Barack Obama back in 2006.
Talking globally glowingly about reverend Jeremiah Wright -- did this -- more.
Zero -- -- open.
No -- when you got my speech I gave me.
Who doesn't -- -- that yeah.
It's one I'm -- all of you here today.
With the victory at -- I don't invest in front TV cameras actually stole -- line from my best.
We're right -- So DNA he's confessing that he stole the title of the book the audacity of hope from his spiritual advisor which by the way I thought was -- the title of a ninth grade girl's diary.
But obviously Sydney opened the audacity about six yards but not Eric yet I collect these -- so I know what do you think it -- this is -- Are now with.
It really doesn't matter noun -- not that much -- though for people who would not be inclined to vote for Obama again and maybe any of them -- -- on the fence I think that it does take a look at somebody like.
Victor Davis Hanson who wrote on national review today that maybe the media will now -- not.
Protect President Obama a little -- if they make is if the Democrats trying to make Mormon is an an issue.
Do they really want to do this to -- really wanna have this pastor debate where Obama got all religious police aware.
All I can say -- that Romney got all I can say is the five deserves a lot of credit for breaking this incredibly new new story.
This is only been around for about eight years in I've got the better.
Credit for as little bad at all is titled what -- that knowledge is originally shot at a product like a little bit what is not tied it at some point if it's a bit better that you -- spiritual advisor was David duke.
Wouldn't that be kind of a problem.
Well I don't know -- -- These spiritual by now I'm dig a hole although I still think about we have what we have now we have a president who admitted to smoking pot admitted to doing lines of Coke will be admitted to stealing.
What's left -- he added but we have five seconds I cannot leave without a country like him Marlboro one -- that well -- but what's the what's the points.
The point is we got to go to break -- -- -- have you guys show we don't have some older blue Obama take the yeah.
Repeated it yeah yeah yeah.
If we can't get any older capable bombing he didn't exist but I doubt it but we sure we got everything we've got -- right here in the fire I -- on we've got a -- Democrat.
