When President Obama calling for -- -- on the red state Democrats stepping up their attacks on Mitt Romney for just being -- Susan's new poll out that shows Americans apparently don't much care.
Whether he is for it now isn't that -- -- welcome everybody I'm Neil Cavuto -- its true and polls showing three out of four Americans feel.
Mitt Romney's wealth really is an additional and it won't make a difference in their vote.
So maybe it's time to stop them applying success -- making a big deal of it.
Start celebrating its.
So I'm glad to have him back Charles Payne Dana McDowell along with Adam Lashinsky and Charlie Gasparino tells him when he -- It looks and I'm not really surprised by this poll although I will say it does it's four out of five used to be five out of five but listen most people out there they wanna be richer they want their kids to be -- want to -- and Arizona about the one that's more who did not someone at this table right now I think this evening I'm trying to see if you're -- angry -- -- better -- because listen in America we know that success is a by product that's a by product of hard work.
Sacrifice and smarts we respect that we really do respect that despite this massive PR campaign against it and I do hope of backfires.
Ben -- Monday night.
What it is hypocrisy here on the -- the Democrats is almost beyond belief.
The great hero of the Democratic Party is -- his entry was FDR one of the richest men in America threw down they don't gold plates during the -- president.
The other big heroes had -- of candidates.
Down they were incredibly rich -- of bootlegging lived lives of unbelievable decadent luxury.
What is going on -- and LBJ one of the richest -- ever servant Gardner's big democratic hero.
Carry big democratic hero of the -- -- United States.
What what are they talking about it I'd done -- a minute they have blockers the year just blows atop my brain right up and I would view in the who is the lot and forward -- does negative -- why wouldn't make any difference at all I'm a gonna date -- but I don't know for sure day.
-- -- -- -- But the fact that what are you lost your -- is actually written about the editorial page a great deal is the president Obama's messages.
That economic growth comes out of the middle class and that prosperity comes out of the middle class.
Which is so upside down that a class -- like a middle class is developed from economic growth and prosperity and it -- kind of illustrates.
People want to work hard make it easy for them to start businesses and work hard and then keep the keep what they so keep what they create a.
You know it tells us -- and then -- I don't know if I'd even want a poor president.
-- -- -- -- -- Maybe you -- program Lincoln that was a good -- he ran with a flexible -- -- wasn't he was really -- -- early.
Thanks very well yeah yeah Google I don't you're you're you're right to an end it's come down it was -- analogy but I.
How do I do nothing except the wheels and stayed about that is -- what we want to present a special times like this.
To be as a wealthy.
-- -- -- -- -- The underlying message here is not necessarily well it's fairness and if you look at some of those being heads which some of them up.
Really effective I really inference is that it's ill gotten gains right when they say when -- Mitt Romney takes over company fires -- body walks out with ten billion dollars attendant whatever was.
There's a very effective -- out there and I think that's where it resonates with the American people it's not necessarily.
I mean they go over the top when they start just attacking wealth and saying anybody.
And makes more than 250000.
Dollars a year is a you know greedy fat -- where they hit home runs I think.
Is on the fairness issue -- strikes even.
You know people that -- lean to the right they have a problem with Wall Street making money getting bonuses when they're getting screwed.
Of that he's showing up at eternal drugs or resents what it's like you're doing that I try to do it that's what he and ends the likes of Bill Clinton telling goes slow on that are good -- what do you make of that.
Well I think it is a step further I mean first of all Americans have always admired wealthy people I agree especially people.
Who earned their wealth you know people like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs they created something and they got wealthy that's great little Cody -- planes -- -- -- -- -- and and play -- -- sent -- back up.
Well the issue it Charlie started to get at it with fairness the issue is inequality in this is not by the way a partisan issue where it has a weird time.
In our country's history where there's more income inequality than there ever has the -- Before that Democrats are talking about that.
The Republicans are not I think not only is it ineffective political message but it's an important message is well and there's a -- Well let -- look yeah -- -- -- and a glass house to put down the rock and went.
When Nancy Pelosi was bemoaning all -- counts and everything else and loan -- we discovered Charles.
That you know -- had -- -- offshore accounts and yet investments -- -- -- not that there's anything wrong with any of the above.
I'm disabled and that you don't stand up.
You know and scream that you view you are this great -- in Britain virtual it is paragon of just.
Perfect and Nancy Pelosi the one who took all these private -- on the the jets at the taxpayer expenses.
Whose families involved in private equity or investment or -- it but here's -- thing you know.
By the way -- have someone ripping Mitt Romney it's got to be a port -- some of those on two dimes to knock together.
-- it ended up right.
Inequality idea either listen the most that the country would have been -- coaches' and the rate you will you rate countries with income inequality what the -- one.
Is it's the North Korea get out of the box.
Bottom line is we keep trying to make excuses for bringing down the Ritz that's all that this is an excuse to bring North Korea has to -- well -- -- hello Betty and I do the rift between Iraq to report North Korea did Eugenia -- this time and -- likely that the.
About what about an equality of nearly half of America -- -- legal way to depend on some sort of federal payment.
To get -- every year like eight including Medicare.
And then you also had nearly half of Americans pay no federal income tax.
So you have all these people reliant on the government and then all these people who are not paying a -- high and -- our defense just wanted to get ball.
Choose your satisfaction -- -- nothing you said is inaccurate -- -- and then I can.
You know I can list ten or fifteen things were big corporations are rich people.
Take advantage of the tax code get federal -- like the way how are not I don't have a all of its true about the hypocrisy general election -- -- -- -- of the object in they'll do it you know the immediate economic advisor to this president.
Getting all those tax breaks for his company when they baseman -- a tablet the fact.
That's important but little about what an honor we want to -- how but the fact that -- Buffett wanted to present economic advisors talked about millionaire's tax -- Buffett taxes and guess what.
-- because he can be a he gets all these -- he -- It does the kind of you know I've always a good examples guys would -- set I wanna get -- -- what we started here about wide vilify well why vilified success why.
Resents -- I mean I could see if -- -- to someone has gotten in as I said through ill gotten gains or ordinance some nefarious means.
But by and large that's not the case with the -- to do in this country and I I don't know why we rip it and why we're surprised them and a poll numbers that's just three out of four people have no issue -- that.
Because I like it on this -- -- -- V is a huge part of human nature and the Democrats are trying to whip up MB.
The -- is they -- they're trying to -- -- racial fears as -- gap with all this nonsense about the voter registration -- do you think the working -- and it's -- I think has got his work -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I have run out of that war is as -- -- and it's working I think Charlie was exactly right a -- integrity is an ideal target.
It's definitely there's a strong us there's a strong sense in this country that Wall Street got think got out of control and doesn't make anything -- And I partly agree -- that and the American people part.
We don't know go to -- your -- -- you're all things Wall Street in -- everything else I'm just saying.
Do you is it let's say that's the chaos and you are indeed one of the smaller deals this way -- -- long suspected.
Then -- and then highlights and the only way to look -- -- dogs that did only way to rectify it.
Is it -- screw the rich and and have a bailout more taxes so you could forcibly narrow that gap that won't do that questions are doing there it's it's a question of the of the of the evening things out that that's what that's what you did well today in a second -- he said.
We make a big deal of the fairness of the rich paying more but make no.
Issue of the fairness of half in this country paying no income tax at all.
We we should make sure of it that those the people who should be paying in income taxes.
Paying content on -- -- know much about your answer it like -- around like on the Obama team six so so so you're okay you win with this this this sort of -- double standard on what it's there.
I don't think it -- I don't think it's a double I don't know what I'm not advocating their position I mean.
It gives you won't make hardly any money what then they -- income taxes I don't -- that I agree with that.
Good to hide it.
It was and I just think that very rich should pay more in taxes I have no problem that's why I'm for the -- Brian tax reform rich people will be pay more taxes.
Yes -- overall rates of about what they'll close -- little chemical and they already are I know that and -- -- Charlie.
Everybody get -- in the polls and all that due diligence in that everybody would be paid at least some.
-- -- -- -- So called rich people the top 20% -- pay more now than before the bush tax cut they are carrying in his country single -- while everyone else is getting welfare food stamps that's a bogus bogus thing I hope the American people rejected.
Women and --
