-- as we've reported earlier tonight President Obama took time out of his busy fundraising schedule to sit down with the ladies of the view and during the hourlong interview.
When he wasn't discussing the critical issues like Kim -- divorce while -- talked a bit about the 2012 election watch this.
So now you've officially kicked -- their campaigns -- for a second term.
-- it was -- which.
John McCain second 2008 so how -- do you think it's going to be -- memorable name is Barack Obama it's always take.
I've just present I'd be more worried about your record -- your name come November because tonight along with the -- the female vote African Americans are voicing displeasure with your performance.
Now we are learning a number of leaders in that community are expressing frustration with the president's decision.
To change his position yet once again on the issue of same sex marriage and as usual.
If you disagree with the president and his left wing allies in the media you will be the subject of ridicule take a look at best.
I don't think this is a redefinition of marriage this is an extension of civil marriage protection Tulsa why not let what Muslims that Republicans -- -- -- bishop I'll do evolve.
Thank you very much.
And it was immediate reaction the author of the New York Times best seller 999 an army of Davids -- -- is here and from the video you just saw bishop.
Harry Jackson he is the pastor of hope Christian church.
-- little bit of program.
Thanks for -- -- -- believe me like feel lectured by and by an NBC liberal late that you're on your views need so Obama passed there.
Well it's kind of funny he didn't really want to hear our reporter view.
All the programs we've been on so far during this season have characterize my views as being neanderthals.
Hatred filled -- rather than common sense approaches.
To a very serious problem in our culture.
The disintegration of family and marriage yet but you know it's very interest thing you know our our -- that you ran.
You know what it's like to be a candidate.
And in its interest because even the New York Times poll which there could be double -- people the depth of the president's campaign is now complaining about the methodology.
Where we -- Democrats.
-- over sampled by 6%.
-- because two thirds of the people see this -- -- this political expediency.
This is the president's old position.
He changed it three times in between that he had back in 1994.
This was clearly a political decision a political move.
You know Democrats.
Have long taken black people for granite their boats now this president coming out with this issue.
He's now taking black people for granted not just their -- It's secondly this is -- states rights issue.
Why does he want to hijack this issue and try to make it a national issue when it is not it is clearly a political move.
Not all people of faith are gonna be.
Gullible enough to just follow him simply because he say is he has involved it's not.
Go to work about a wave your Republican any change your mind your -- proper.
But of course if you change your mind back and forth and back and -- again you're revolving this is part of an evolution process.
Bishop will this impact the African American vote in this election.
I think it will -- remember back in 2004.
George Bush was elected reelected.
Based on an 8% switch and Ohio 9%.
Switch in Florida of the black vote if there's an organization.
And folks really come out and say we wanted to be fair -- that traditional marriage we could see this thing actually blow up in his face.
And the price quite frankly I hope that.
We organize and get this thing together yet Herman what did you think about the line on the view today with a president said we we just played it.
While you name is Barack Obama you know it's always tough -- Barack Hussein Obama.
Remember prior to the 08 election and then his swearing in.
You know -- Bill Cunningham on Cincinnati.
In -- said Barack Hussein Obama and he was excoriated for saying it.
Well I think that was his way of trying to -- add some Yuma.
Since he moved on that show but I can tell you a lot of people on -- and -- go -- down on this whole issue -- when he said he also wants to put congress on notice.
He wants to repeal don't -- the that that's -- marriage act.
I give hope to give me thoughts sounding as if I'm frustrated -- does he think he is.
-- -- you're not god.
The president of the United States and that's what's turning a lot of people off let me give you this statistics Johnson -- -- just -- tonight and that is.
-- -- -- I percent of the people if you dig down in the polls say they less likely to vote for him.
Because of his stance coming out on this issue and only 10%.
Of -- Hip hip -- ready that's up fifteen percentage point differential and it's gonna be a tight race it always he is and that.
I believe there's gonna be a difference maker.
All right but -- -- let me play one other thing in this is a problem I mean even when you know Stephanie Cutter suggest all the methodology of the New York Times is is off.
The president continues to go back to blaming -- bishop I don't know.
You know my church I'm -- taught that I had take responsibility for my choices my decisions my actions in life and that you know -- responsible.
This president it's tsunamis it's earthquakes it's kiosk is ATMs in the course George Bush's fault he does it again today.
-- wanna spend the next five years -- who is recreating that America where.
If you work hard.
You can make it regardless where you come from what you look we've got all the ingredients.
For success for the next hundred next 200 years.
But what's happened is is that our politics breaks down we've become more obsessed we've.
Winning election than setting things up for the next generation and if we can break through that.
I could not be more confident or more proud of this country.
I Italy he I don't think there's ever been -- more divisive president bishop.
I I agree with you I think he's only had seven different groups he's -- -- women blacks Hispanics.
He's that in the radical Green movement.
Then he begins to cater to these folks.
And paint everyone out as the bad guy as an African American it's been especially difficult.
To feel like you're being called uncle Tom.
You must be against your own race simply because you disagree with him on matters of principle so.
I believe that this is -- to shift I believe marriage is the issue that's gonna make it shift.
Next week we're going to bring that -- -- -- American leaders to Washington DC for a draw a line in the sand yeah summit.
And which we believe that we're gonna make you accountable bishop I have no right to inject myself in in the workings of -- church but may I humbly suggest.
That you invite Herman Cain to sing.
-- your truck -- I promise you it will be enlightening and uplifting.
I think here actually well.
That is gonna take more than singing to basically.
Cover up this president's failed record on the economy and energy have a whole list of other things.
Still well I admit that I agree -- just opened to admitted enlightened ones one small congregation here.
My pastor pastor came.
Thank you both for being close.
Thank you -- he's and.
