-- -- to back to have any time now for next installment of the real Obama and tonight while governor Mitt Romney is spreading a message of hope that a better America still possible.
President Obama is using divisive class warfare rhetoric and he is starting to sound more more like one of his predecessors.
And that being Jimmy Carter.
Now thanks to our friend Jeffrey lord over the American spectator he is pulled together some examples to prove this -- that's.
The Republican alternative.
There's -- biggest tax giveaway anything.
-- want to spend.
Of dollars more.
In tax breaks for.
The very wealthiest.
Even if it means adding to the deficit.
They call it Reagan again grandma.
I'm gonna have really good Americans get a couple.
The last thing we can afford -- -- Is to go back to the very same policies they got us into this mess in the first place.
They're -- -- back.
Have a great day for the rich and did renovation of the pool.
And there's an inflation problem.
Do we want to keep tax cuts -- don't know the wealthiest Americans don't -- and -- more.
Quarter we want to make sure that they're playing their fair share.
Sounds eerily similar now doesn't joining me now with reaction Fox's contributor Liz Cheney Fox News political analyst Juan Williams I -- smirk or smile -- mr.
Because it -- -- -- 32 years later.
This is all you guys on the left got class warfare class -- demonizing big oil companies.
Well you know it is it's wishful thinking they think that somehow Barack Obama is Jimmy Carter reborn I mean.
-- I guess they could have brought up bad muskie or Gene McCarthy another week down in Carter's right.
I Carter just about -- -- well I love it.
They put the list to me this election is probably most alike.
Reagan Carter -- as much as you don't hear liberalism on display class warfare the rhetoric is the same.
And the results of the Carter administration very similar to what was -- -- Obama.
Right well and near the Wall Street Journal reported this morning -- that the American people are more deeply concerned about.
The long term prospects of our nation and they have been at any time since the seventies.
But I actually think Barack Obama is even worse.
You know I think you've got now -- seen an unprecedented.
Assault on American freedom and liberty from the Oval Office whether it's what we Saturday with let's crucified business.
To these restrictions on how our families can operate on family farms to attempts to limit our freedom of religion.
You know I would I would posit here that dead this president -- we have -- Oval Office now is much more radical.
Even then Jimmy Carter and and that sends more dangerous to the nation.
But I I don't let -- -- one thing that actually won this is a compliment you may be surprise I actually think Barack Obama is a better politician.
He projects that -- that image better.
He sells liberalism socialism what everyone -- call a better.
But the words remain the same -- like the song remains the same gonna get another example this -- Jimmy Carter.
Attacking the GOP for being supporters of big oil and that we hear Barack Obama.
Very similar again.
After the 97 -- Arab oil embargo.
They're above it and -- now it's still.
Didn't make that threat to national security of on -- and then.
Their -- they were detonated another big and.
Voted to keep giving billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies to big oil companies that are raking in record profits.
Few weeks ago congress had a chance to stand up for families already paying an extra premium at the pump.
Congressional Republicans voted to keep spending billions of americans' hard earned tax dollars.
On more unnecessary subsidies for big oil companies and members of congress have a simple choice to make.
They can stand -- -- the big oil companies or they're gonna stand with the American people.
I won big oil are big business -- evil rich tell me what tell me what sounds -- what's changed in 32 years.
Last -- about the evil rich but I think it's going after the powerful oil companies and the tremendous -- they say when the country at a time when.
The country has a big deficit look in political terms you know Jimmy Carter faced a terrible challenge on the from the Democrats from the left -- Coming from Teddy Kennedy or even think about somebody like the first President Bush who didn't get reelected he had a big challenge from Pat Buchanan Ross Perot.
Barack Obama has no challenge coming from within his own party prayers and that's a good point this unity coming from this -- point on the part of Democrats behind Obama.
Good point Liz but there's one missing thing.
We still have failed results and every time these big government programs an attack on free market capitalism.
When you use divisive rhetoric like this.
Especially coming out of a period where their programs have been tried.
Implemented -- -- failed.
I think that's that that's the determining factor here or my overall.
No you're right and in fact in 1980.
Hamilton durden and Jimmy Carter's chief of staff wrote in the memo which laid that out would set at the end of the day.
You are going to be judged on the results of your presidency and that's exactly what we're gonna see this time around.
You know I think that that what makes this really so heartbreaking at from the perspective of the nation is that we face real problems we -- real challenges with it -- debt crisis is looming over us.
The diminishment of American power act and might around the world.
And what we see in response from this president is you know let's attack -- big oil let's attack the rich let's divide the nation.
You know he's looking for anything he can do.
It's gonna get cheers from an audience because he cannot stand by the American people even Barack Obama can't stand up for the American people and say he's great federal president.
And it's going to be my first call -- federal -- are you very -- for years ago go ahead.
-- -- wetlands help all of on a second you know today Chrysler has a record earnings GM is in business.
You know bin Laden is dead out a lot he is dead and 47 million America -- poverty and the -- side Americans need food stamps.
Hard and yeah.
There's a lot and that John let -- this (%expletive) I had to wrestle free.
Good policies imagine what that recovery would look like if we have actually had in place policies.
That understood -- need to support business not crucified and five trillion president lays you are you are speculating.
-- we gotta we gotta run the -- -- -- is the term one that but Barack Obama's Jimmy Carter on steroids and I think dumb beast you're right.
Well that's right don't underestimate it is gonna lose in his second term.
Probably -- -- -- Didn't you think I'll lose a -- damage and Hindu want that not thank you look fabulous coming.
