Both governor Romney congressman Ryan coming out swinging -- President Obama over his redistribution.
On the campaign trail today both men hammering away at present Obama's big government believes.
And they are not the only ones.
That if you simply take from some and give to others that we'll all be better off it's known as re distribution President Obama sad.
That he believes in redistribution.
Mitt Romney and I are not running.
To redistribute -- wealth.
Mitt Romney and I are running to help Americans -- well.
It's not that I want -- monitors traffic you've got a business.
-- want to make sure that everybody.
Who is behind you but they've got chances so stupid I think -- we're a global world where global little overwhelmed.
This fundamental truth the state has never lose so as of Monday.
-- and -- money people them themselves.
President -- we have to have a government government that works efficiently and effectively that helps provide opportunities.
Middle class Americans and those seeking to enjoy.
The feeling is you've got it.
I needed to.
I want to find taking it and I am entitled to it because I needed to take came out.
A couple of days ago with the president saying yes he believes in redistribution.
Have we try to resuscitate the notion that we're all in this thing together we nobody behind.
We do have to be innovative and they're thinking how one of the delivery systems.
There are actually effective -- and meet people where they live.
And I might suggest I guess you wouldn't believe it.
That visit by President Obama curious where I think there are technical issues that have to be dealt with the proposal to political issues.
I think the trick is figuring out how to restructure government system that.
And -- Facility -- the redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution.
At least at a certain level to make sure that.
Everybody's got a shot.
Because we have not authenticated.
His fourteen year -- -- tape -- royal college.
When Barack Obama was a state senator so because we have not independently -- NBC news and MSNBC authenticated that we're not airing.
She knew it was not comparing Obama's redistribution video because they have not yet authenticated.
Because there's there's an old journalism and media got -- pure full fledged.
And because it's it's it's breathtaking to behold.
Our job is not to fight.
Over a shrinking pie -- redistributed slices this idea of redistribution.
Follows from the idea that if you have a business you didn't -- that someone else did that.
So the GOP's -- work Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume joins us frequent C -- -- state of the political citizens.
This is redistribution argument that the Republicans and number two Republican candidates -- -- making.
I think it constitutes common -- give it away from talking defensively about Mitt Romney's 47%.
I'm not sure how much mileage isn't it after all as you and you saw and could Joe The Plumber in that video.
Obama said -- much the same thing to Joe The Plumber for years ago we've known for sometime that that he believes in redistributing the wealth that has -- said as much.
Moreover there's this.
Himself while he's not saying it now he says he doesn't believe in redistribution but he favors a progressive income tax code.
He just doesn't favor one ST good -- -- -- Obama switches which is reduced -- distribution list I mean there's just no getting around that.
So they're doing the best thing Campbell this thereof including literally glued to a more on -- in particular on the defensive this week they've managed to make a pivot here -- so they Rhode talk about and and probably not a bad move them -- on a much mileage as an.
Within redistribution what's different now though that would Joe The Plumber is that we are profoundly deeper in terms of how much money -- -- as a nation.
So I think that I'll send them the money should be people come more sensitive I think to the issue about what to do -- -- money.
Well perhaps so that may well be true Greta but I'm.
But dad is still the same old model and the president has changed his view on on -- -- maybe you should have maybe you can make the argument that we can't afford to redistribute the wealth.
You can -- make the argument that we -- it's better news to focus on creating wealth and trying to Clinton trying to parcel it out.
And that's I think that's a valid argument for the Republicans to make and the -- and then the governor's statement about 47.
I look at us.
The problem the 47% statement was not that he said 47%.
People don't pay income taxes that's basically true.
The problem is they also -- 47% of Americans.
Are dependent on government and believe venerable contend and consider themselves victims I think that's probably not true.
When you consider -- among the 47% and paid little or nothing -- income taxes includes a lot of the military I don't think those people necessarily consider themselves victims but only that they feel like -- that they're dependent on the government so.
Well I mean it wasn't just a 47% comment and got into trouble seems to me it was for the rest of it -- -- -- No I don't think it's fatal but it doesn't help look here's the problem when these kind of -- celebrated misstatements or corn gas.
-- horrible are horrible horrible episodes that are currently campaign is that they basically.
Shut you down for a few days while everybody talks about that.
Can you defend that.
He probably had some anyone to talk about -- -- like the middle -- Luzon if you don't get too when you make a mistake like that are mistake like that comes to light.
So that's the problem here and -- -- radio silence for the duration of -- of the flap over it.
Now I don't know how much of a flap there has been outside of those -- the Romney campaign.
And the rest of the media because I can't know keep track of it all over this redistribution comment but to some extent that may have drowned out.
President Obama for the last -- -- -- I'm curious how much it's -- we're we're actually consumed with it in the media both -- -- consumed.
I'm sort of curious about the family that's -- Coleman Ohio or Wisconsin putting food on the table getting ready for work and school doing all that.
How much they're paid attention to -- what.
101 would imagine that people like that are more general consumer tonight simply following the -- -- goings on the political campaigns are looking into broader world are looking into adulthood what happened in Libya and what's happening.
And then the rest of the Muslim world and wondering whether this president's.
Policies have have allowed that to happen or cause it to happen or contributed to it.
They're wondering whether the you've -- that he announced was such fanfare it did dawn on his administration.
Has benefits for the failure in that that has left us about where we were before despite his claims I'm sure that that's Karl Karl -- what's on their mind as well.
Let me bring up the question about putting my -- that they -- the White House had been hanging on the YouTube video as the provocation.
Of the reason behind.
The F protests and now not appears that it was al-Qaeda was on -- 9/11 event on our Libyan embassy at least that's who -- on.
Denise not only other -- -- connection what I think about that is that the president's back and in one interview in particular American November of 2007.
That the day he was inaugurated not only the United States -- we -- because of people look at ourselves in a different way but so -- the world and he looked from that point.
He launched a new discussion about the -- she planned to make of the Muslim world and how people would see us differently but he didn't say -- that our problems -- -- Muslim world would be over he didn't say that but he suggested that things would change for the better than they would change synonym for a major way.
These events and this attack in -- in particular suggest that they haven't changed.
And that is damaging to him and I think that what came out of White House was economy.
Reflexive political spin brought to a diplomatic and foreign policy matter.
This sometimes happens and I think they've been caught it now.
-- thank you you better.
