Hi Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight what -- -- is President Obama doing.
That is -- subject of this evening's talking points memo the worst thing that can happen to the US -- for sitting president to pretty much ignore the best interest of the folks.
Because Obama is doing something very strange right now very strange and you should know about.
He only won election by three and a half million votes -- -- more than 120 million cast.
He knows we're divided nation and he also knows me as Americans don't believe he's looking out -- that.
He also helps that we have a budget situation that could send the country to bankruptcy so it is on the president to solve the problem.
This week Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner offered a president's plan.
It would raise taxes for high earning Americans by one point six trillion dollars over the next decade.
That's on income capital gains and dividends but also limit deductions for those folks also return the estate tax to whopping 45% for wealthy films.
But on the spending front.
There really isn't anything substantial on the table not think.
President basically saying.
I'm not gonna cut much and blank you if you don't like.
It's not just a bad deal this is really an insulting -- -- Geithner offered would you showed on the screen.
Robert Healy was offered easier terms of mathematics and he loves the civil war they're not only are no -- -- this.
There's an increase in spending with a new stimulus I mean.
This is almost unheard of I mean what do they expect they.
-- obviously expect the Republican national cable and everything.
Now I don't think President Obama expects -- Republican -- cave he wants them to oppose.
Leaving the American people become angry with the GOP to political strategy -- putting the entire country at risk.
Many Republicans already said they'll go along -- -- -- so why is a president being so in your face about this.
He's doing the same thing with the Susan Wright situation earlier this week he said he thinks the UN ambassadors doing a great job are you kidding me.
Doctor rice mislead the entire world about the Libyan murders.
Still want explain how that happen and that's a great job.
Very possible that President Obama will nominate Susan writes for the secretary of state position that Hillary Clinton is vacating.
That would obviously be another in your face to the Republicans so it doesn't seem.
Obama wants to run the country efficiently I guess I could be wrong maybe you'll compromise in the ad but now we have a mile where the highways to wage.
Problem the president is a highway.
Passes through the Republican majority House of Representatives.
These people aren't gonna okay more than a trillion dollars in tax hikes would know spending cuts or entitlement reform it's not gonna happen.
Obama knows it's not gonna happen so why are we playing this foolish game.
The American people deserve better than this.
We have huge financial problems in this country problems at every single one of us who are going to be -- -- If the US dollar tanks.
Come up to president -- for something reasonable off the politics.
