Election now we're governor Romney's back in US soil now returning from a campaign trip overseas where the media hit him hard it.
For comments in London than in Israel than later try to confront him at a holy cited -- That -- were a Romney aides stepped in -- You.
On the net -- I respect we have another chance at the questions -- asked this is cool site forced people.
Show some respect.
Governor Romney calling the attacks.
All in an effort divert focus from.
Job number one in America -- I realize that that there will be some.
In the in the fourth estate -- whichever state.
Who are far more interest and in in finding something to write about that is -- related to the economy.
To the threat of a war.
To the reality of conflict in Afghanistan today.
To a denuclearization of Iran they'll they'll instead trying to find it try and find anything else to divert from the fact that.
These last of four years have been tough years for a country that been -- years of tumult in the world.
And we need to see a better direction taken.
On the part of our nation.
That interview with Carl Cameron where it left Poland Alan Colmes is most of the Alan -- radio show Tucker Carlson.
Editor of the daily caller of Fox's contributor gentlemen good morning to both in the morning you two issues -- work -- here okay.
Issue number one Tucker did the media overplayed this -- attack on governor Romney here whatever it's.
-- what you're supposed to shout questions of politicians I guess that's the standards have changed in the last couple weeks.
-- they over played it I mean of course they overplayed the press doesn't like Mitt Romney there for Obama obviously we know that.
There's -- -- whining about it by the way you work with what you have and that's the situation.
What we live with Romney's problem was telling an obvious truth that no one foreign person would disagree with -- -- Culture affects outcomes and in the case it is real.
And the Palestinians is really cultures more conducive to economic since success the Palestinian culture who can argue with that -- I'd love to hear the Obama people.
We're calling this gap and saying it's outrageous and agreeing that it's racist I'd look -- -- explain why it's not true because they can't.
I think I found someone who would argue with -- regular -- what his name is -- -- -- go and I personally always blame the media when you really don't get what you want and you what he told Romney told Carl Cameron.
I wasn't talking about the Palestinian culture.
He clearly was segment Palestinian culture and then he's got an op Ed piece out -- in the national review.
Talking about the Palestinian culture and tying it to the economy.
When the Palestinian economy can't be compared the Israeli economy number one they're not -- state.
Number two we give to an American tax dollars.
Billions of dollars a year -- Israel so for him to even compare them is ridiculous and then make believe what he -- the Carl Cameron he never.
Put down the Palestinian culture if he's going to be a leader on the world stage and possibly have to deal with mideast peace.
You can't make those kind of statement to -- make believe Tucker.
Yeah well we give money to.
Palestinians as well as as well as a lot of -- -- as the wealth a lot of other impoverished countries to Egypt for example.
On that aren't as successful as this really the bottom line here and I'm not gonna defend.
Romney's changing explanation for what he said he got it right the first time which is culture affects outcomes Alan there's no arguing with that.
That again is really culture.
Is more conducive to economic success than Palestinian -- by the way the culture of many other countries Palestine not even a country know -- -- -- country with.
Whatever not on -- they're -- -- you can compare to this state land mass would borders and of people with the national identity -- out of state call whatever you want okay fine.
But it doesn't change the point that young guns which was accurate in fact it's beyond.
If not beyond debate we -- you can't compare the amount of money we give.
Palestine the Palestinian Authority to what we give Israel organizing a real risk as we get the money that -- you literally want to make that case is Israel's economy is partly because.
Of what we.
The American taxpayer dollars have been running -- -- -- by the free market we don't need government our government and taxpayer dollars go to help support Israel we don't get anywhere near that -- to the Palestinian Authority you can't even compare the -- is -- -- -- -- culture and he's really misstep -- -- attorneys and I -- that our -- -- -- -- -- what I do every -- Israel they went -- before I do believe this debate will continue culture does matter the -- is -- is the name of the article without -- that up issue number two Tucker has to do with Harry -- -- made a comment about Mitt Romney's tax returns a reference to his deceased father.
Without proof for verification or even the name of -- source now why is the senate majority leader making such.
Because he's a relentless partisan who has almost no ability to control what he says and it and and very and nasty too by the way in those comments and some of you can't beat a television.
I would say you know you're gonna see a lot more this as long as those tax returns.
Aren't public frankly I mean that's just true I'm I'm not.
Taking a moral stand on whether or not -- released his tax -- but the political fact is.
As long as we don't know what's in -- people can come up all kinds of -- was this John Allen Buckley was this justified.
-- we had a -- that I am I gonna have been limited number of years tax records -- -- -- -- do's father.
No I'm not gonna defend what Harry Reid says because he was on -- and it's a it's a here it's hearsay.
Oven Mitt Romney could have -- is a long time ago that he think he could run for president.
-- -- releasing tax return to his father actually broke the mold when he released twelve or thirteen years.
You can't you know -- you could see for the sake of argument you can see a political operative saying something that's.
Yeah I style I -- -- -- I knew what he I'm not defending it.
I think he should have been sort store.
-- where who said it or I I'm not defending carried on that but I got to get I think Mitt Romney has created his own problem here.
But by not coming forward be forthcoming you know they love to talk they let -- knock Obama the right does about lack of transparency.
Mitt Romney has none.
Yeah I don't think anybody deserve the attack that.
Harry Reid leveled against Romney though I mean whether and I -- -- how we feel about releasing tax returns this was completely over the top and this is the senate majority leader totally.
Unbecoming but not unusual for me ask anybody who's ever dealt.
With Harry Reid and I don't picket -- -- the issue's gonna come back up again we'll -- -- answers that the next -- Tucker thank you Allan thanks thank you well thanks.
