Thank you Mr.
And congratulations by the -- Wondrous -- rare and when I was -- for state senate Zambrano.
Chris and I go backwards never seeing UN.
Like the look in that one time yeah.
Medicaid maybe you could -- the president's biggest fan a Chicago newspaper reporter.
In the east room congratulating the commander in chief on his win on the second -- -- -- reaction.
President's news conference is editor in chief.
On the daily caller in a Fox News contributor Tucker -- and -- -- -- you know we talk about that kind of stuff all the time and ladies and gentlemen exhibit a very wise.
Oh hole you the very handsome mr.
press that -- that guided tour is so.
I'm putting his video and endless loop on my laptop to remind me why get out of bed in the morning.
-- giggles the fawning the block Shea I mean this is a guy is headed your press conferences.
-- George W.
Bush was famously averse to dealing with the press you'd expect some pent up.
Frustration at very least from the press corps but no when he enters the room they melt.
-- this interesting indeed.
We did did talk a little while ago about his defense his strong defense that it kind of buck stops here defence of Susan Rice when you make of that.
Well I mean.
This is an opportunity for him again to accuse his opponents in effective bigotry you just don't like Susan Rice because I don't know she's a woman.
You're picking on her you're being mean but you're gonna have to get past me first I mean this is a pander to a constituency of course the fact is they're all kinds legitimate concerns.
About Susan Rice I have a couple friends who -- Democrats.
Who -- involved in this enterprise who expressed concern to me personally.
That the president would squander political capital putting up Susan -- we have a couple of pretty well qualified candidates waiting in the wings why you're doing this maybe maybe for this reason.
Maybe also I think a couple of times he talked about raising taxes on the rich at one point he said a majority of voters agreed with me.
That's simply it's not true it wasn't a majority 47%.
According to exit polls right agreed with him and he wound up getting what 51% in national book.
And now he did -- this is one of the few things that President Obama actually did -- I mean it is true that he did telegraph this -- many many months ago.
I'm surprised by the kind of intensity of his position he's basically he's in his press conference yesterday I will -- the US economy if I can't force the rich to pay for.
Basically closing the budget gap he is expecting to raise up one point six trillion dollars from the top 2% people owning.
-- earning over -- 250 year.
That doesn't actually make mathematical sense when he is absolutely committed to a notice.
Almost no mention of the real problem which is entitlement spending which is driving our debt.
Absolutely Medicare and doesn't even mention the Tucker -- question did it sound to you like he's still running for president.
Yeah I mean sometimes it's hard for these guys to decelerate after a campaign but absolutely I mean that's look he's not negotiating with Republicans.
This fiscal cliff Steele he is negotiating with the public directly in the White House has said that they haven't.
So you know they haven't had a sit down meeting with the Republican leadership they are taking their case of the public I think in a pretty demagogic way.
And saying look the rich need to pay their fair shares if the -- story paid for -- you know a disproportionate share our budget all right well let's see if we have to wait another eight months for the next press conference Tucker Carlson reporting live from our nation's capital only when you look great Steve thank you I've never seen you lose thank you very much -- up.
