So the message from opening night government rules it was a salute to Santa Claus now divorced from the North Pole and all the elves who built it which is fine if America -- suffocating under the weight of all those presents.
No surprise the private sector was absent makes sense President Obama believes everyone should benefit from capitalism.
Except the capitalist.
Maybe that's why the DNC's calling Bill Clinton perhaps he -- big government does not have.
All the answers.
We know big government does not have all the answers.
We know there's not a program for every problem.
We know and we have -- to give the American people a smaller less bureaucratic government in Washington.
And we have to give the American people one that lives within its means.
The era of big government is over.
So President Obama has problems with married women and he's bringing in bill.
Doesn't he remembered that -- back then anyway the bigger question how far have the damage reverse that course check out last -- host the.
We are committed to all people.
We do believe you can use -- government.
In any good work from government something that we all belong to.
We're different churches different clubs to work together as a part of our city are counting -- our state.
And our nation.
The government is the only thing we all belong to a scary thought that nails the cult of big government to quote I think -- You're either in or -- out which is why the DNC disowned it belonging to government is worse than being a member of Jeremiah Wright's church.
But as -- government grows so does this is that its desire to preserve its expanding -- -- you either pylon again utilities or risk getting crushed underneath.
Forget the fact kids here's where sides really matters.
So but that video.
The Obama campaign disavowed it they they said it was from the host committee of -- city of Charlotte.
Why deny that ideology I loved small government I'm not ashamed of saying it why shouldn't DNC saying they're right we are for a government.
Well I mean first of all let's remember that there's a document it says it's government.
By four and of the people.
And I think that's.
We forget that read up on government that -- -- the founding fathers said that we are the government and that's why we are unique country.
So but the fact is it in all these things the control of conventions.
Down to the very last nail on the platform is in the hands of the Obama campaign.
And somehow they made the decision to let that go forward.
Eric and they say government.
We say country.
Yet -- -- -- what you're trying to say is Obama administration was OK with that ad saying.
You -- the only thing we all really belong to is the government has be really bad investment spent all day listening to.
Everyone from Deval Patrick to DNC to the campaign ever went down alliance and we had nothing to do with that I actually saw.
A Cliburn an hour ago say I don't even know you're talking about we just.
I don't BS -- let me just if there was some really important music about it.
The DNC decided to move the venue that pres Obama is going to speak at there's -- -- from the outdoor 80000 plus it's not sixty.
Like they're trying to tell us it's an 80000 seat stadium.
75000 plus a few more on four.
Into a 20000 seat stadium -- -- couple reasons that could be happening.
Number one I was gonna say as a joke that -- because they took god out and they -- wait a moment but -- not that.
But 60000 people -- have to fill 60000.
Seats in maybe they weren't able to do that whore.
Bank of America Stadium next stay in their campus stadium Biddle signers they're 45 billion taxpayer dollars wanted to Bank of America and they just laid off 30000 people -- -- They're outsourcing those jobs to Philippines you think they wanted their president underneath the bank.
America -- shot for the latter than the former army good advance people are gonna fill those seats that they had really want to but I.
-- I could be that it was forecasts for lightning.
You know you could -- that it end like it really strikes twice -- lightning are struck in 2008 it's like I'm likely to strike at the DNC convention again.
Can go back to that question -- -- that he ignored yes.
It doesn't make us great -- makes his grade is on that we hold our government.
Accountable I think one of the reasons that the Obama campaign put out a statement disavowing it before that at -- added even bin.
And -- maybe different finished airing is that they are so.
And the depth with independent voters that that kind of language is exactly what they don't need coming out of this.
They might have some good speeches last night but I don't think they've had a very good -- the convention it's been stumble after stumble at first campaign that is so controlled.
It's kind of surprising to see -- this disorganized -- -- that's why I guess -- Clinton is coming.
Your KG you you know Bill Clinton else something too well.
What ends on your opinion yeah that's about Derek they're expecting.
The Clinton magic what is he supposed to do you.
What is he supposed to break but he's a great public speaker he better bring the manager of the -- that this ship is sinking fast -- -- -- something to.
Bob it's -- other than the South -- last night we'll talk about later.
Clinton is in need to come in there and tie it at his right now it's got like 76 -- in the bodies on the table and somebody's going.
Just close enough.
These these are Swedish television talk about it I've been told it -- -- -- doesn't -- are the best -- opening -- I've ever seen -- -- convention -- not.
But what about and that it right.
But I think speed is where it was great great grand -- about but the other stuff like the lead -- -- midnight and yet stumbles on a flat -- -- all -- yeah I.
Is this something that unforced errors and had a Black Eyed Peas they actually play all I got some black -- that was a mistake and we'll -- -- this -- that you're not.
Mentioning Bob is the long list of of fact checking errors from last night they threw a lot of things out there frankly.
A lot more BS a lot of them are -- we have a whole list -- we can get them if you want.
Well we could not get rid of the Paul Ryan -- Why do we.
I've got five from -- on Castro alone -- who gave by the way a terrific terrific it's a little -- terrific Philip BS I just I I wouldn't calm -- -- my body -- all right outright -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yesterday that he admitted it but I went back -- -- that is that is not what Powell Ryan says Helio you'll know that cat I.
-- say he said look at my words in the exact words and everything we got -- talk about not think that that wasn't what he said it.
Morning -- the think about -- Castro it's not what he said it's what he didn't say patty says with a young Elian in Utley in -- -- and talked about his mother but he left at her greatest achievement which was that you know I guess.
-- La Raza which wanted to create a separate state with which ended with in the United States that's a heck of an achievement may be just glossed over the.
But I doubt it's a good lesson she she did work very hard to -- and -- her daughter through school math science fair for -- through college that's grandfather.
The reverend I know the mother star says a big hell yeah it is still it's just radical socialist front that already great is that.
They know right now it was Israel -- and -- I don't I don't I don't follow that mainstream Hispanic.
Who she -- -- -- -- mainstream now but back then it wasn't just me it was a mixed as mainstream as Jeremiah Wright it was fighting back then the brown Panthers were -- it was a real radical group that listed.
All there -- law enforcers negative but by and large you could I could not have been -- to ask for a better opening convention.
Night I mean but again we'll talk about that in a bit and was driven by the speeches and you know he did say that Castro made some mistakes I can say that Ryan Bob.
He didn't make mistakes he.
Blatantly lied to the people watching with five different separate occasions wanna Texas.
One -- jobs one on Ryan's plan for pell grants of one on Ryan's plan for for Medicare just -- -- Bill Clinton we -- but that.
He's going to probably attack -- Mitt Romney right.
What he's not gonna tell you is that Bill Clinton oversaw the community reinvestment act renewal in other words in 1995 or so.
He said let's let's take a look at community reinvestment let's put more people and homes even if they can't afford it.
And this one.
Partial repeal of Glass-Steagall which separated banks from deposits from risky trading he eliminated that wall he put those two back to get to guess what happened.
The financial collapse happened because of those -- -- -- -- and you contrition that both Jack adult.
Let me take it by the way that was such huge bipartisan support for the community but I haven't yet that was overwhelmingly Democrats Republicans -- isn't -- this.
Aim at Democratic Party that Clinton was in charge of you get that he was far more centrist he knew went to trying to be bipartisan and work -- -- -- there's a lot of inconsistencies in the messaging.
Even back in 1996 never Clinton said the -- big government is over.
But all we heard last time these little montage and TV moment with governments -- way we will save you jump into our big umbrella -- creating an arms and opulent.
-- -- -- Now I don't think if -- and if everything had been going great for the Obama administration I don't think they would have had Bill Clinton in a primetime spank and exactly adding that going back to independent voters and working class voters.
He appeals to -- Emery had.
I don't know of anybody who's longing for the good old days of the Clinton administration.
Oh my god -- not like I think -- longing for the Clinton economic days I don't -- at the net and there's.
I've read a lot about this over the past few days and you know there's not a single economist -- thinks that raising taxes in the middle of a recession is a good idea.
Including President Obama which is why his.
This sale he has to make on Thursday is it's perplexing to me how -- gonna put the speech together because.
People want to look towards a future elections are about the future this is very amber all their pinning their hopes on a speech by the former president and I'm.
Who's gonna say that I raise taxes during a recession we had the greatest figures in -- attitude.
I don't know like leadership when you have to go back to Bill Clinton who isn't now everybody got it nice and I'm not an -- -- -- -- that -- surpluses that they talk about his like that guy tells you hey there's 200000 dollars in the account you going to cash a check and it bounces is a sorry -- -- -- their surpluses coming out doing yes I actually just -- plus the -- we're not there.
On paper on on paper they weren't.
OK you have blown Bob's mind I'm I'm I'm I'm simply it's floating somewhere Oviedo back and they got me out of it I'm shocked I don't know.
Got to move on as CBO dissent that took last week in their report.
OK -- read that stuff actually you do it for you in Q all right coming.
