Get your hands -- pictures of president Obama's new interview with Rolling Stone magazine in the article the executive editor told the president that his six year old -- to him to know.
He can do it and what happened next raise some eyebrows according to the -- -- the president replied quote.
You know kids have good instincts they look at the other guy and say well that's -- -- Yasser.
I can tell.
-- -- candidate is not senior advisor Romney team how you doing very good morning time to go out -- good to be -- -- -- the official word let's just say let's say that when it comes to.
That VS or comment what's that all about -- Well obviously the president is enormously frustrated he's tried to run a campaign.
Over the last year's -- it certainly last six months that's been one long negative commercials I think he actually thought he could win by just.
Trying to destroy his opponent.
And Americans -- take a look at Mitt Romney's run this big campaign about ideas and about the problems America faces and about a -- and to turn things around.
And I think the comparison now as clearing clear as we get down to the I'm actually what is your expectation for how.
-- voter may be in the middle would react to that.
There's no question in my mind that the Americans will not respond well to that kind of talk I know I know women in particular.
Do not I think that name calling is an appropriate response certainly not presidential and especially in times like this.
Though I mean we believe these Americans are facing extremely challenging and difficult issues in our lives and -- have the president states.
Not talk about that but to cause opponent names it makes.
It's just -- -- and it just adds to your whole impression it's either big bird it's binders.
It you know it in now it rebuild after they -- What are you glad that's all small ball and that doesn't win in 2002 -- but were about to find out whatever does or not.
Because you have twelve days on the calendar but that there's this thing that Krauthammer and Stephen -- is talking about this thirty minutes ago.
I'm talking about the media coverage of perhaps you know there's the story and -- one example.
But when it comes at a press coverage of the White House the last news conference this president gave -- seven months ago.
-- now what does that say in an election year but he's got other interviews not tick -- off in a moment but just an official former all formal rather press conference.
It it tells you that he does not wish to speak to the American people about all that's going on in this country that he wants to -- target.
To little soft interviews -- he's having in different places targeting into different -- audiences.
But that if you went to the national press they would be required to talk to -- about the national issues about the economy the unemployment about -- high taxes.
About small businesses suffering as they are and and he doesn't want that he doesn't want to defend.
His policies in the -- explain the failures.
That that they have resulted in the suffering Americans.
He's he's welcoming a lot of penalties what gonna come and -- for a limited time as I was directly.
And it I'm looking at the united 8 o'clock O Reilly stranded the get them on TV as well both -- -- -- told Letterman last night.
Because they don't do interviews I mean -- neither of them have come -- to talk to me in this cycle.
I understand that president Obama's gonna do MTV this weeks and you know those wet on Monday in what kind of -- on to listen to.
-- -- -- The folks really don't get to see them really answering the tough questions which I think that would be worthy.
Us weekly is gonna happen today.
And I saw this other stuff -- stunned and shaken some its deadly serious you know when it comes to weather and news that the decisions you make about where to get your message out.
But they I I think the White House looks -- -- from an entirely different perspective.
There's a thinking you know I just think 51% of the vote I win exactly that's all you -- It and that's exactly right but in they know they're not gonna get that 51 if they go on on on these big time question go to talk -- congress and ask some tough questions -- bill.
I'm just indicated you know that indicated that it is to Mitt Romney he has been on on fox time and time again there's no question he's out there he's talking the press.
At any is addressing these issues every day.
He has a plan for the future but his opponent does not the -- United States does not and instead he has a very small campaign talking about little things.
And that's the way he's chosen to run this campaign.
He expected to be able to win on that but the American people want someone who has a plan for the future and I think that's why the president is now -- a.
Desperate situation while serious times they thanks may begin with a -- a Washington good to have you on okay.
Thanks -- thank you Martha -- former.
