Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight convention -- -- that is a subject of this evening's talking points memo.
As you may know we cover politics bit differently here we're not much on party propaganda or political blow -- In fact we -- very few politicians speaking about general issues conversations on a factor always very specific about things that directly affect you.
Not a going to out of -- on Wednesday and we will have a heavyweight coverage all this week but it will not be the Republicans are good the democratic or -- or vice Versa.
Went out of business of promoting any political party my mandate.
Is to watch all of the powerful so that they don't harm you.
I've always believed that most folks are Smart enough to decide for whom they want to vote.
But being Smart means paying attention -- is why you're watching the factor right now.
So we will give you a lot of inside stuff this week and we begin tonight with what is really happening really happening at the conventions.
We have -- -- the Democrats because Republicans are largely reacting to what the president and his crew are doing.
For example speakers at the Republican Convention have largely been selected to -- -- Democratic propaganda.
While speakers at the Democratic Convention next week in Charlotte are largely on stage to inflame -- The liberal base the strategy for the Republicans is persuade the -- right here.
The strategy for the Democrats seems to be persuade the heart to hearts vs mines is a theme this year.
The GOP presentation is largely -- fact based.
-- Obama screw -- up the economy gasoline prices through the -- your economic future is shaky.
On the democratic side they want you to believe that the Romney Ryan tickets extreme.
That those guys want to hurt you by making the rich richer and ignoring the plight of the working man.
So let's get real specific.
The most probable democratic speaker will be Bill Clinton.
Who try to persuade voters that he is successful economic strategy.
Has been embraced by President Obama who just needs a bit more time.
Before -- happy days are here again.
That's really -- as far as policy is concerned in Charlotte.
President Jimmy Carter will appear on videotape but with all due respect.
-- -- The rest of the democratic prime time lineup is composed of zealots.
Let's start with Sandra -- she's -- Georgetown law school lady who believes the constitution mandates that the American people pay for her birth control.
I can just picture James Madison and Thomas Jefferson hearing that.
I mean think about it this look wants us to pick up her.
And if you oppose doing that -- will say you're anti woman.
And then there's -- president -- around Nancy Keenan and the president of the Planned Parenthood action fund Cecile Richards.
These women are abortion extremists -- -- not.
Is there any abortion they would limit any constraint -- all I don't think so.
And then there's Caroline Kennedy whose appearance is solely designed to link President Obama.
With the Kennedy legacy now we expect ms.
Kennedy we'll tell everybody how good the president is for American women.
And that will be echoed by actress Eva Longoria.
Was also on the -- primarily because she is a Latina.
I don't know much about -- glorious political philosophy because she does not appear in challenging for -- Also speaking of the Democratic Convention congresswoman Tammy ball -- a lesbian running for the senate Wisconsin.
And Massachusetts senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren you cannot get more liberal.
-- this crew it's impossible you can't do.
-- -- Republican side governor Romney is pretty much neutralize the far right.
Sarah Palin not been invited to speak in prime time although Rick Santorum will give an address.
There are no local Tea Party leaders on the docket although senator Rand Paul will speak and he's a big Tea Party got.
Most of the GOP speakers are conservative but not far right.
John McCain Mike Huckabee Condoleezza Rice Jeb Bush John -- all fairly flexible in their political thinking.
So I think it's accurate to say that the Democratic Party is out there ideologically.
While the Republican Party is trying to be a bit Wal-Mart.
Of course -- national media will never report that because they are actively helping pres Obama.
Shaped his message.
That the Romney Ryan ticket is extreme.
-- at a guy like hot -- makes a dumb remark about -- that is condemned by the entire Republican Party.
The Democrats refuse to accept the condemnation instead they're trying to link eight.
I think was outrageous -- offensive.
I've asked him to get out of the race I think I have distanced myself -- from the kind of thing he said as far as -- possibly can.
He was wrong.
That and it says it obviously.
Is being used by Democrats to try and if cashed today a shadow on our entire party it's not.
-- fellas again it's up my job.
Seek to represent either party.
My analysis is designed to protect you from craziness.
There's no question America's in trouble economically no question at all.
No question -- high gas prices are hurting working folks no question the sixteen trillion dollar national debt is a -- -- To your personal security and to my personal secured.
But those questions those questions.
Or not he and addressed.
By the president of the United States.
Obama's trying to put together a Coalition.
Of the Willing.
Women who think Republicans want to hurt them Hispanic voters who believe Republicans want to deport them.
African American voters who believe Republicans are biased against them.
Younger voters are being told the GOP does not want to -- -- educational money and older Americans are being told that the Republicans will destroy their Medicare.
That's what's in play.
Rather than solving the economy energy and a massive debt we have fear tactics.
All over the place.
Right now that -- is a very good chance to defeat Barack Obama but before we get to the polling place on November 6 road will be very bumpy.
The rhetoric got very -- on both sides.
And all Americans should consider one question -- bubble who is best suited to solve the complex problems that are vexing in this country.
