Hi Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight President Obama trying to checkmate the Republican Party.
That is a subject of this evening's talking points memo there are two big issues of mr.
Obama is using the -- GOP immigration and guns but it's not about problem -- For example.
Talking points is put forth a simple plan.
That would drastically reduce gun violence in this country has to do with federalizing all gun crimes.
And having very tough mandatory prison sentences for gun criminals.
But you won't hear support for that coming from the Democrats.
Liberals want to make the debate about limiting firearms.
Even though they now.
With 300 million guns already in circulation those limits we'll do absolutely nothing to prevent violent crime absolutely nothing.
Again the Democrats and the president know that.
Likewise on the immigration front.
President well understands that if he secures.
The southern border.
Most Republicans will agree to mainstreaming the illegal aliens that are already here at least in the workplace.
That negotiation should take.
Ninety minutes but it won't because mr.
Obama will not commit.
To securing the board and I hate to be cynical but that's going -- it's about politics not problem -- And the president has been somewhat successful in demonizing Republicans.
Listen to this.
We've got to stop being the stupid party.
-- it's time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults.
It's time -- -- articulate our plans and our visions for America in real terms.
I think she was stupid for using that term because that term is so.
Up noxious and so good to the other side is that he should not have used that term because that term is going to be living now with the Republican party for a long time.
And they're gonna have his -- on television saying get for the next four years.
So -- is a real division in the Republican Party caused by friction.
Over how to handle complex issues like gun control and immigration.
The last night it was interesting to hear conservative rock -- Ted Nugent really level AC NN commentator.
We're excited about guns were talking about did not act of -- have a team you care about alert merger -- only care about murders with guns I I care about old that I don't gonna -- I think you care about -- I think you're obsessed with guns -- on and -- Nine point 99% of the Gun Owners of America are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today perfectly safe perfectly harmless wonderful loving.
Giving generous caring people would you leave.
Us that hell alone go after that not jobs go after the murderers because I don't know when he.
Now that kind of straight talk is what the Republican Party needs it should lay out its vision as governor -- -- suggested.
But it should also aggressively counter attack liberal politics that are.
Right now his little incentive -- present a bomb at a moderate.
New Gallup poll for example says that January 70% of American Hispanics approved of the job Barack Obama is doing.
-- -- up from 53%.
This time last year.
And it is -- immigration debate that has Hispanics cheering on the president.
Target which is not a party opera -- I want solutions.
Right now we are not -- honest debate America.
And that's hurting all of us.
