So in Ohio yesterday the president finally rejected class warfare.
I Betty said that we have two competing visions of our future and the choice could not be clearer.
Now we have two competing visions.
Of our future.
And the choice could not be clear and let me say those folks on the other side I -- sure -- patriots I'm sure there sincere.
-- -- in terms of what they say it but.
I believe is wrong somebody gave me an education.
I want born with a silver spoon in my mind.
But somebody give -- chance.
-- like these folks up -- looking for changes threaten.
I guess I was wrong the president -- that he had no silver spoon.
If that's not class warfare what is it a war ons -- he's got to stop this war -- you cancels America.
So maybe didn't have a silver -- to be sure -- a silver tongue because he went from community organizer and a president with just a few steps in between.
So something with silver.
Worst draw perhaps like -- arguments.
You know I bet he knows the better way to make our economy stronger -- it comes -- -- two choices one evil -- one good.
What's the better way to make our economy stronger.
Give more tax breaks every millionaire and billionaire in the country or make investments in education and the search and health care and job training.
Well that's -- choosing between a hug from -- one from Dana.
Understand this is not redistribution argument this is not about taking from the rich people to get deport people.
Understand this is not a redistribution argument this is not about -- and from rich people to give the poor people this is about us together.
Making investments in our country so everybody's got a fair shot.
I guess its fair share failed it's now fair shot would suggest in America you don't get one but most economists point out there's more movement from class -- class here than anywhere else ever.
And people come here not for class warfare but so that one -- their kids can be born with a silver spoon or any spoon for that matter in their mouse.
And -- like Indonesia are spoons won't have dog -- it.
I we didn't really.
Think what they -- -- -- then you're not well being -- by now I'm sorry it's Thursday I'm in my third minute.
There's it's like my Friday right OK -- okay so the pulls us CBS New York Times poll finds -- bombing and -- -- -- dead heat I would ask you if you're involved in Obama's campaign what kind of advice.
Would you give to President Obama would you tell the whole type things might get better or a new game plan -- I think you're not accused in Ohio yesterday and Ohio is going to be as usually is going to be critical to the outcome of this presidential race.
Here's -- did not find much to it must -- about all these -- there's a number of undecided voters are very small.
The first tradable voters -- that the polarization on both sides is really Tammy and they're both city and about 46%.
Of the average it all out.
And normally in a presidential race -- 4040 that's Sybase -- -- -- 1% for -- vote and I just think did.
That what -- half -- Obama would focus on that and here's a problem the Romney and Obama both that they do not attract.
Right non college man neither one of them and that's a problem and somebody whoever gets there first will win this election -- you know who does attract.
Are you bordering.
Just a little -- and I thought.
-- -- -- -- Blue collar away nine -- -- -- -- be honest there to barrels royals on producers can't leave those sorry I didn't want Colombian news producers and politicos.
But every day new ball comes out his Romney's head next one it's Obama is ahead and brownies and we -- -- -- you see the big -- balls.
I mean really.
Really -- I think this is significant though because it's a first I mean -- since the primary has.
Basically been over that you have the New York Times and CBS poll saying that it actually didn't affect Romney as bad as a lot of people would've thought that it might have.
And -- on -- credible voters.
So just say take -- and -- around.
And they listened to President Obama say I was -- the Silverstone in my mouth guarantee three of -- off the table well and they go they go way to somebody and I thought I could they stay home.
But what it does I think you're right about this I think that that at least -- when -- -- -- the conservative base and from party came to Romney.
I mean he inherited that the same -- Obama has that's why is -- news I'm mark my new normal book -- is about 45%.
Of the electorate so I know that it did -- stay -- we.
You know I'm saying I think it's gonna be -- -- firm you know both of these men to put together some winning strategies in key states unlike Ohio and I think right now it's too soon to -- terms of how the numbers are going.
To -- but I think Garret types in the beginning when you said that it's going to be anybody but Obama even generic.
Republic -- beats Obama and when you look at this long term vs just this quick snapshot I do think it's significant because it's showing some movement we'll see how you know.
Yeah she's like you saw the primaries big swings in votes right now.
This will be settled about -- it is now the fight to be in B 44 to 48 -- around that range.
There won't be big movements -- -- and they're margin of error statistical and I jumping out there there's all your your.
OK fantastic we're becoming an article about something Greg without while in and that monologue.
It's a tweets what -- he wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth.
We talk a little bit about what how he got to be present -- United States.
-- childhood I get it his mother left him to be raised by his grandmother in Hawaii.
Where he earned about a C average throughout high school somehow got through Occidental College -- about a C average -- -- small part.
-- lines of Coke and then found himself.
At Harvard where he got the prestigious appointment of editor president of Harvard law already you know that and -- -- he finds itself.
Being paid by the taxpayers through various forms of public service eventually senator and now president so -- that's not what -- -- financial -- splendid man has a performance.
Don't don't you think being the president of Harvard Law -- requires some substance and and the -- big -- -- a service to a country remember -- -- Richards -- talked about Herbert walker bush.
Where she said he was -- over Smyrna is about.
They he's clearly referring to -- gadget.
-- said board George Bush he was born with a silver foot in his NASA -- why it was so funny -- that -- actually out well I heard yes and Larry as and that one of the best lines I can so quotas and -- it's famous quotes.
President honesty just it will never be in brother's name is always revert to -- -- -- -- That's the thing is that he he he he wants he says -- I'm not doing class warfare and they says something that -- who of course he's talking about.
Mitt Romney and it's a -- if it's not working.
Why is it did you know -- the class warfare rhetoric is not working and -- not helping industry is not helping them with men and even if you look among women married women are moving away from -- sit at the single women but the merit -- -- it away.
It's not working isn't the speech writers today to come up with something new -- inside all the same stuff Bob what do you think they should do about that.
The the if you if you're sitting on frankly an economy that is at best week from her what are you gonna do.
And I think that what the polling indicates in what their focus groups indicate.
Is it to class warfare thing eventually will bring over those -- white collar Irish you've blue collar.
Men who don't like Romney Romney John favorability among these people because they -- believe it.
That's what it's like the country in -- -- sport there is wrong Enron he's -- amongst among men is much higher than about percentage wise than Obama says among women.
Across the board it.
That and if they ensure.
Yes yes it's Obama's adding five trillion dollars and -- needs that to our debt is of that class warfare.
But that's the do you ask what can he do that you -- been union speeches that it could descending that would -- he wasn't a perfect position to play against -- And to reduce taxes on corporations and why didn't he push that let me say you know what congress I want this done by the end of June on my desk and I will.
Funny yeah I praise sheriff's I have a better idea I have a better idea hasn't public he takes his own advice isn't you don't wanna put together the big buzz Simpson Bowles commission didn't say guys come up with some ideas and -- that make sure it doesn't spiral out of control and didn't they come up with.
Five ideas a reforming Medicare Medicaid entitlements.
Still a little bit tax reform and a little -- it's many reports then all of a sudden Obama says no I'm not prevent against Simpson -- you know you did a good night and then they're actually no Israeli -- pulling it back.
My point is.
-- commissions a group they come up with recommendations -- -- than some.
It gets worse because just two days ago the head of the Senate Budget Committee Kent Conrad in the senate hasn't passed budget and over well over -- the three years over at Al and they don't care.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm gonna have a mark up on the some symbols -- market means are gonna have to vote on it.
Guess what Harry Reid -- -- and says oh no we don't the Democrats aren't gonna have to take a vote on this Harry Reid didn't come up with that on his own backing from the -- you let.
The great -- I didn't bullish us -- Bowles commission was not create about bomb was an act of congress and the idea was you gonna have a book a budget.
That had to be voted on and -- -- I highly touted and backed -- And now it was triggered by President Obama -- your complete -- outside love congress created it actually made my.
Are you requesting content yes -- -- but he's added that at his -- you.
You would have no members up and I remember that and the Republicans of the very and backed off of that on that didn't make it mandatory we're gonna take a break -- oddities so here.
Yet if we're gonna snack for you coming up but stop Kimberly the president halted the -- -- -- progress in January -- -- -- new plan which has been submitted.
So what will Obama do now probably.
Something -- Also don't forget to email to the by the foxnews.com right I love Greg in the subject header in -- free lunch with data.
