Listen to what rush say it you know it's insulting.
To continue to insult the intelligence of the American people.
We don't have -- leaders in elected position we don't have a lead in the White House we have a politician that's more concern about popularity.
And he intentionally and it did deliberately -- with the Democrats deceived the American people.
That's what rush is saying he's embarrassed about it is outright deception.
And in -- and -- and I don't have a problem with what -- -- it.
But he also -- it.
To not believe that most of American people have some common sense look 51%.
Of the voters elected Barack Obama.
What -- -- percent of us not that stupid.
That's what he was say.
And so don't throw all of us in the of that lap now because the fifth the 1% put him back in office it's insulting to the intelligence of the American people over and over and over Juan Williams.
Well I I take a different point of view from my friend coming.
I guess I'm.
I did -- -- I want these guys and I thought the two of you were who love America and as you rush rush loves America -- so I'll get a question on and I made mistakes.
I don't care if you've got eight.
Right wing president -- left wing president this is America.
This -- the the land of greatest opportunity there's nothing to be ashamed about if you -- -- blame America first if you would be part of that crowd.
Maybe you -- to go to Hollywood and join those celebrities -- Say they're gonna leave the country if their kid doesn't win the election.
And hope you know what I hear what Rush Limbaugh and Limbaugh as always thank all of you know what I hope he fails remember when he said that about Obama I don't hope America -- -- That's I was -- a show I did an interview with a when he said it excuse me says Democrats and that stuff.

Not a -- not once but twice.
We have the tape.
Let's -- what Michelle Obama said about America.
And let me tell you something for the first time in my adult life I'm proud of my country because it feels like hope.

For the first time in my adult.
Lifetime I'm proud of my country and not just because.
The rocket's done well but because.

And just not feeling so alone in my frustration.
She's -- for forty years old and for the first time in -- adult life she's proud of our country.
Russia and I'm proud of his country want on the.

-- is blowing out but I mean when it went Michelle Obama said that if what I got his trouble because I was critical of -- -- she couldn't -- it Stokely Carmichael playing and hope to be a good First Lady and you'll notice she's ball back.
But that's not the point here tonight the point is as we deal with this sequestration issue shot.
