Our President Obama is playing the blame game yet again in the -- appears to be pointing the finger at capitalism for America's dismal economy while on -- campaign stop in -- on Friday.
He once again attacked Republicans this time claiming that their economic strategy is not working.
Their strategy okay and studies proposing of the federal government be responsible for pretty much well everything take a look.
Their philosophy is as simple you're on your own.
That's not that's their view that the only way the economy can go wrong is if -- if you're out of it jumped up -- Figure it out on the wrong it -- if you don't have health care to vet you're a hero.
If you're if you're a singer.
-- trouble paying your prescription drugs that's not our problem if you're young person.
Coming out of poverty pull yourself up by your own bootstraps even you don't have boots he.
You won't win the race for new jobs and new businesses.
And middle class security.
If we client.
Should this same old worn out tired and you're on your own economics.
That the other -- -- I mean they're like we haven't tried it we -- don't get it right there could be.
The idea that you would keep on doing the same thing.
Over and over again even know it's been proven not to work.
That's the sign amendments.
Until we tried to three and a half years your policies -- we have five trillion dollars in debt and nothing to -- for Mr.
But the sounds a lot like one of president Obama's oldest supporters what he believes this weekend Bill Ayers attended a rally at the newest location.
Of Occupy Wall Street in union square and in front of a large group of -- supporters.
The un repentant terrorists answered questions for almost an hour and -- support and advice to occupy protesters.
When asked how he has dealt with criticism over the years he said quote I get up every morning thinking today I'm going to make a difference today am going to end capitalism.
Today I'm going to make a revolution.
I go to bed every night disappointed but I'm back again tomorrow and that's the only way you can do it joining me now with reaction Fox News contributor.
-- away now and -- friend of bill layers Tucker Carlson and Fox News political analyst Kirsten Powers.
Let me go through -- he it's his economy his stimulus.
His budgets is five trillion in debt.
His failed policy is as high unemployment numbers his bad housing with these -- things he said is -- -- let's go through this because almost every statement he made here is untrue.
The philosophy -- you're on your own.
I don't know one Republican that says they wanted to -- only -- -- live within our means and not get five trillion in -- he says that you know of your out of a job good luck.
Republicans are not against unemployment benefits they wanna create jobs by creating incentives he goes on to -- -- don't have my health -- too bad you're on your own.
Well Republicans want health savings accounts.
I says side too -- if you're seeing can't pay -- -- prescriptions he obviously forgot about the bush prescription drug program.
So -- everything he said here is just not true.
Does he get away.
That's it so it's a long way from opposition -- what are the accent come from the sky grew up in Hawaii all the Sony uses certain words it's like Jesus out there it's very it's phony but it's some deep way it's real.
-- -- this precedent has not had a ton of exposure to the market I mean he's spent his entire life cloistered away from young adulthood until now.
He didn't believe institutions.
Where you don't nobody's worrying about the next paycheck has its guarantee you can't get fired from.
Government jobs -- jobs and academia I think he is deeply suspicious.
Of capitalism and I don't think he's ever pretended otherwise accident and so.
Right we shouldn't be shocked I mean this is he's been -- also how he cares that it -- -- a good point -- making here and that is we've come a long way from 2008.
You know optimistic rhetoric hope and change and and he's gonna -- the planet.
When he says Republicans won dirty air and water.
And Andy wants Republicans want kids with autism and Down syndrome and the elderly fending for themselves similar to what he -- here.
You know is that the same guy the people voted for 2008.
Doesn't sound like it.
Well I means.
I I think look I think talks about the health care I think he's making a valid point all the time that I saw the Republicans in control including one they were in control of if you don't have -- appears to Banda and -- -- -- office that day I did not see him do anything about health care I mean to suddenly and -- -- interested in health care when they wanna stop Obama's -- not sure I'm -- health savings account public gonna solve the problem is in this country.
-- to help one go a long way to helping improve the the system in this country.
It would guarantee that everyone had control over their own doctor's control over their own destiny destiny it would incentivizing people get a check up every year.
And terms of -- that -- -- and all that other stuff I mean you do know that Republicans were voting against them Mercury standards right I mean.
Actually don't want Mercury standards to protect the Republicans one kid and autism and down and I'm saying to myself.
Now why they're about why they're voting against I'm halfway lead at Catholic Church had to lobby them so that they -- and try to change their minds -- -- -- but I think clearly and let's not pretend like this isn't happening Tucker.
But there's no connection.
That has been established and contrary to all the propaganda one hears from moronic Hollywood -- Between Mercury in vaccines and autism just be completely -- that is not -- but -- a normal person with common sense here's a politician.
This President Clinton got let's say my opponents want all people to die it's like we're Catholic is -- an American who believes that I was sort of beyond that would talk to me like an adult.
That's what Obama promised when he ran for office I elaborate but there's a reason I can't really -- -- Yeah he's just annoying humidity but that the reason why is he can't run on his record.
He can't run on his record and that is the going to be the greatest weakness he has in the campaign cares that.
Why I don't agree he can't runners record and even like this.
Horror LSU read about the economy does not jive with what's going on I think the economy is turning around all -- what -- -- low aspect housing.
An unemployment -- moving in the right direction it's moving basically and director actually you probably already president -- -- -- -- Johnson when he took office bell was shot if you talk to most economists you talk to people who aren't paying my -- on Wall Street they will tell you that the the economy is turning around they -- slowly if they are I'm sorry if I'm sorry what does not very well so that's -- 47 million Americans in poverty -- the people's homes are under water.
Before the segment summer really were allowed to talk about the fact that you think that because Bill -- said something that that means Barack Obama said that -- that -- what is signal.
Palace saying I'm saying its interest -- He's attacking capitalism and I'm saying that is an -- -- and then Tucker spent time with Bill -- what about what is he attacking anything I guess is the question if the economy is turning around this is Christian says about -- I have most economists in here.
In the studio with me and -- they disagree but let's just let's just conceded that -- Why isn't he giving speeches on that topic why isn't he continually has a policy harassed because he he it's that's why are you every disappointment -- guys good to see both.
-- coming that we continue to do with the ministry.
