Don't feel like the government is looking after my tax dollars whatsoever I feel like.
It's all complete hustle and we're the butt of the joke.
The middle class has not gotten bailed out and this entire process.
We're not big -- were not just the stock market her car dealerships.
We're just this whole average people and we know -- was does little -- The stimulus with -- -- shocker as well.
The American recovery and reinvestment act that I will -- today it is the most sweeping economic recovery package in our history.
The beginning of what we need to do to provide relief for families worried that they won't be able to -- next month's bills the first steps.
To send our economy on a firmer foundation.
-- seem like we -- it very quickly.
We'll just print more money and that's -- done for the last four years triple bombing there's a huge trust back.
Yeah I don't ornament came from the first -- To be able to get -- stimulus.
I'm not sure there's any watchdog groups watching any of that -- it seems to be very unclear where all that money is going.
And welcome back to the special edition of Hannity that was another clip from the brand new movie the whole open the change and still joining me -- some of the voters featured in that movie.
You know he said the President Obama said about George Bush in July of 2008.
That George Bush took a credit card to the bank of China in the name of our kids.
And he rang up you know four trillion dollars in -- is -- nine trillion dollars that's irresponsible.
Eight years we -- have five trillion going on six with -- Obama in under four years.
What does that tell you about money.
What it tells us that print money but I think that gets back to the heart of this spending money is again spending money.
That that's where I've messed up when I was looking at this election is he said all the right things but I never asked to intercept -- is gonna do it.
I think he realized he -- and you know how to do yeah good point Michael.
Believe he screwed us over and he gave us hope but to change came for him and his family not for the average American person you know.
One of the things I want to ask all of you this is general question that I have I'm a conservative.
Most of you know that.
I tried to vet the president in 2008.
And I went back and I looked at twenty years and Jeremiah Wright's church I -- Jeremiah Wright that was last interview he did in that election cycle march of 2007.
I looked at his relationship with Bill Ayers -- started his political career in the home of an un repentant terrorists.
Who was part of a group the bomb the -- pentagon the capitol and new York city police headquarters throughout the course of that campaign he was asked one question.
About the -- gave speeches with a set on board to them and he -- just some guy in the neighborhood.
Do you think his policies.
Represent some of his radical background do you think he's more radical than you thought.
Yes your hands up anybody's.
Yes yes -- him now.
Would you hang on Jeremiah Wright's church -- years.
That's bad part now -- would you give a speech with the un repentant terrorists that was part of a group called the Weather Underground.
Well I guess question.
Claire from I know is that right I'm being really mean I'm not gonna ask this journalist had to question -- -- in the truth is is that.
If he I don't know.
Be things that you're speaking on then I can't have an opinion on it but what I do believe it is that.
My opinions that I do have Obama are based on the fact of what he has promised.
And what we actually -- -- I can't say.
A whole lot about whether or not.
His policies are failure because I think he missed an opportunity.
He had the ability to execute.
And he spent most of his first year at least.
Trying to get -- but I do agree this is more about results for you that -- it's it's a hunter was in about results is so do you think.
Vetting -- president go on these important issues because I just think you told us a lot about him that was widely criticized when the president mention me -- it and what on the campaign -- least 1012 times even in 2007 and eight.
He has -- really like me.
But ice but I saw that he surrounded himself with radical people.
-- your friends tell you about anybody any opinions on this few friends tell you about what you might have expected you wish you vetted him in other words mean that's a question I'm trying to get to yes.
I know we've got a lot of things that you what you got to understand when you.
Have been -- east.
Com and and and democratic.
And you've been basically taught.
To just straight party ticket is an option when you vote you just check that box and and everything now and -- not even given an opportunity to really think for yourself.
I like -- intellectual honesty what do you think.
Do you think you know more about him now and maybe maybe we just didn't pay attention of these things.
Yeah I don't think that I know more about and now I think before it was a lot of -- shining lights and and snapshots and smiles and all that stuff that.
You know drew many voters to him and I'm an independent so I didn't exactly go in and in the household I grew up and they are father that was Republican mother that was Democrats that -- -- what's the -- to cancel each other out.
You know -- so for me it was and that's why became an independent so I wanna you know I don't wanna vote by party -- -- -- candidate and see what they.
What they bring to the table there's been banned both sides yes no I think anyone else on on this yet I'm an independent -- I I almost always vote.
Conservative Republican whenever I come and I didn't cause us frustrated and I think that's why didn't -- him the way -- normally what he said every other -- I was frustrated with conservatives at the time I thought they spent too much money.
But the biggest deficit George Bush had was -- -- fifty billion dollars.
We I've not had had a deficit under Obama under trillion that's indignant right -- and -- don't -- I agree with it and yeah.
I don't think he was actually if I'm being honest anymore radical to me -- -- he is now and I'll tell you why because earlier high and with lights and the pictures in the hope then that cover is my and the dreams you were bowl winded.
The curtains are open seems even may have finally.
Or didn't you see that I viewed -- as I call -- Obama mania like people -- in a -- yes we can Obama.
Change change change.
And I'm not blaming people I think it's easy to get caught up in the moment you go to a concert right you get caught up in this in the music room of the of the moment.
I've got to take a break we're gonna come back.
And coming up next so what do voters think -- president Obama's lavish vacations over the past four years his basketball is golf think -- -- answer.
May break your heart that much more straight ahead.
