Hi Bill O'Reilly reporting tonight from Los Angeles thanks for watching us is the president of the United States threatening reporters.
That is the subject of this evening's talking points memo.
As you -- know there -- budget chaos in Washington that may result in some small.
Automatic spending cuts.
Stories -- going -- for months federal government under President Obama simply cannot get.
A responsible budget passed.
Since president was elected 2008.
This has happened -- every year.
Recently Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward of Watergate fame.
Criticize the Obama administration for spinning the budget issue.
And one word is correct.
This is crazy no responsible administration would embrace a federal debt that could reach twenty trillion dollars by 2060.
We elect presidents be responsible efficient and be -- into all the people.
What Barack Obama is doing is -- responsible.
He's spending the country into bankruptcy.
Whose -- on earth why mr.
Obama cannot begin to cut the budget.
Yet he resists he wants to raise taxes but refuses to reform the out of control entitlements that you -- Bob Woodward knows this every responsible journalist knows this so Woodward wrote it.
And he says the Obama administration.
Didn't like what he wrote.

To be fair -- read the emails between sperling and Woodward and it is not seem to be any threat as far as a reprisal.
But such -- is telling Woodward he is wrong on the issue and will regret being wrong.
But I could be wrong because hole when does not appear in email.
It's certainly true that the Obama administration does not like to be criticized by the press and if you are perceived to be an enemy.
They'll cut off access the press should complain loudly about that because we need aren't honest report talks.
We also need to stop the ideological nonsense in this country and demand demand.
That both parties start looking out for the folks.
Could have a President Obama wants -- created enormous nanny state for political reasons.
And also because he thinks America's not fair to the have -- The president's entitled to his opinion of course but by creating fiscal chaos.
He's not -- and and that's -- -- now from.
