Hi I'm Juan Williams in for Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight.
Let's get right to our top story and our lead guest Ben -- -- the Obama campaign spokesman.
I have a lot to talk about what mr.
-- -- including the nasty tone of the Obama campaign and its supporters complaints from the white house press corps that mr.
Obama is avoiding them instead accusing softball interviews.
And increase speculation that Vice President Biden has made one too many gaps and Hillary Clinton.
Has been asked to replace him joining me now from Chicago.
Then the -- and thanks for coming in we appreciate it let's start with -- they haven't met.
You've heard about the author Ed -- the author of the amateur a book that absolutely castigate the present he says.
That he has it on sworn word from his sources in that Hillary Clinton camp.
That she has been asked to replace Vice President Biden on the ticket is that right.
That information is about as credible as mr.
Klein's book you know mr.
Klein's latest -- -- invented -- entirely fictional dialogue that.
President Clinton Secretary Clinton.
Had in their -- Chappaqua.
Where he wasn't president every one as has denied the substance of that -- -- this is a media driven narrative the vice president has been absolutely essential.
Governing partner for the president and running mate.
Out on there on the campaign trail he can weigh out the stakes for the middle class in this election.
Like few others and he's absolutely essential to our take you in and campaigning all around the country laying out the choice in this election between.
Take it that's committed to building the economy from the middle class out and governor Romney congressman Ryan's plan which is.
Extending and expanding tax cuts for the wealthiest on the -- Seniors in the middle of.
Friends and then hold on this is a no spin -- here you what you've seen this week in the eyes of most Americans is a gaffe prone vice president who was introduced.
Charges of racial politics into the campaign.
Who doesn't know what century he's -- talking about changes for the twentieth century I believe we're still on the 21.
And this is a man who it seems.
Is it bringing distraction and even some criticism.
-- while other former black governor Virginia criticizing him.
For his reference to chains and slavery Ben isn't that hurting your campaign.
-- what the vice president was talking about is something that speaker Boehner has talked about the congressman Ryan has talked about.
They've talked about on -- in business.
And on -- -- Wall Street.
And the vice president was pointing out who pays the price for that one Wall Street's allowed to write its own rules it's the middle class.
And ultimately that's the debate.
That I think voters -- -- have and they're gonna side with the president the vice president on that they don't believe that Wall Street should be allowed to play by one set of rules where they can pursue risky financial deals.
That put the middle class at risk.
Well everybody understands how -- that's what you're saying I understand it but I don't understand why you had or Vice President Biden should they had to bring race into it.
It didn't help your campaign and it started a wave of criticism and a loud.
-- allowed Mitt Romney then say this is a divisive campaign being run by President Obama campaign that seeks to divide America does not lead.
You -- live up to that the promise of hope and change instead what mr.
Romney said was pres Obama's trying to divide us.
And simply -- back together 51%.
Of a divided country.
That's what he said based on the actions and words of vice president -- That certainly -- with the vice president was referring to is referring to the comments made by speaker Boehner and congressman Ryan.
About uncheck cling business and I'm Jacqueline Wall Street you know I think that's an interesting comment from governor Romney and -- -- run and almost entirely negative campaign.
Over the course of the past year tearing down his opponents and then telling them to stop whining if you spend a day on the campaign trail with the president.
You'll hear him lay out the stakes in this election between an economy built from the middle class out in the top down if you're in Iowa this week on the campaign trail.
He was calling for the immediate passage of the farm bill which congressman Ryan has held up.
Which would provide -- relief to the farmers and ranchers in the midwest are experiencing the worst drought in fifty years is called for the extension the production tax credit.
So that all the wind energy jobs tens of thousands have been created over the country over the course of the past few years don't go away that's all right governor -- it has opposed.
Wait a second let's get back to what we're talking about here Ben Ben I've heard you say.
The governor Romney is unhinged for saying that President Obama is running a divisive campaign for your call on the man unhinged I've also seen -- ahead run by.
And Obama support -- That accuses basically accuses governor Romney out.
Being involved in a woman's death because of cancer and on top of that of course we have the constant bed drink.
I'll Mitt Romney that released taxes as if he's a Kremlin backed -- -- your campaign that he may be guilty of a felony -- isn't that the bison.
Well in terms of unhinged -- governor Romney.
This past weekend after running an almost entirely negative campaign said that he wanted to have a debate about the economic choice -- vote.
Facing voters this November that's what the president said this election is about all along -- a few days later he abandoned.
That pledge in which she accused the president.
Of of running a hateful campaign and as I said if you spend -- day and the campaign trail I don't think those remarks had any bearing on that we spent a lot of time.
Debating an ad that.
But every day on the campaign trail.
Questions well or are you really power they have set -- -- -- about -- its association with that said you -- apologize for -- right here right now tonight we.
We we didn't produce that -- and we have made a different argument governor Romney is campaigning.
On his experience as a corporate buyout specialist and he said that during his tenure at Bain Capital.
He was a job creator.
But the fact is he profited off of bankrupt -- public and I was -- putts and it's going to campaign on menus are answering their questions and then he'll apologize all right.
Then look thank god it's not an -- that we produce our client and we have made we have made a different kettle.
Hey guys I hear yeah I think everybody is you wouldn't OK but then look thanks I think you -- real standup -- for coming in tonight and being on the factor we appreciate.
