Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight the real reason President Obama is not.
Trying to solve the fiscal chaos that is -- subject of this evening's talking points memo.
As you may have noticed -- getting very frustrated personal -- and has nothing to do with ideology.
It has to do with performance.
It's obvious to anyone who pays attention to mr.
Obama is not trying to solve the fiscal mess.
He does not want to cut spending and will not put forth any specific plans to do so.
He will also not give his vision on entitlement reform things like social security and Medicare which are draining the treasury.
Mean to -- as the leader of the country his job to get the debates started with concrete.
For Obama simply will not do it.
To the great detriment of the nation.
That's a fact and here's another fact -- largely letting me get away.
The key question is why why is mr.
Obama not trying to solve complex problems recent article in the Washington Post provide some insight.
About the lack of compromise on mr.
Well but also flipped the Republican held house back to the democratic control allowing Obama pushed forward with a progressive agenda on gun control immigration.
Climate change and the economy during his final two years in office according to congressional Democrats.
And others familiar.
-- Obama's thinking and quote.
So what we have is a re elected president basically not trying to reach consensus.
On important issues rather.
He's hoping that the -- stalemate will tee off orders will then throw out Republicans and give him full control in 2014.
That's very disturbing.
As Brit Hume said last night on the factor.
The president seems prepared to let the public suffer almost as much as possible as long as he can blame somebody else.
This is not what we expected presidents presidents in the end are supposed to be that people who put on a big boy advance and prepared to shoulder responsibility.
It's all about the progressive theme of greater -- it.
But the folks -- now so we can save them later by changing America into -- far left nation.
It's almost like mr.
Obama is sabotaging the country so he can reshape it.
There comes a point where every nation in history gets what it is -- -- -- Japan Germany Russia all were destroyed.
By venal leaders exploiting an apathetic population.
I pray that doesn't happen on us but we -- people.
Need to wise up fast.
That's -- now for the top story tonight reaction with us are brought our place to a Monica Crowley now -- of car do you believe -- Post article I believe that he indeed is trying to flip congress to -- -- democratic no question about that why would be surprised that a democratic president want to have a democratic president to work where it's at the expense of the -- I don't think he's doing it because he doesn't want to help the country -- he doesn't think what's best for the country.
To work with congress he -- tried his compromised older in his first -- this congress they have said they did not want to work with them they have -- -- -- wanted to let's get specific rather than -- PS -- The Washington Post and Brit Hume.
Not compatible ideology usually both make the same point.
The president is willing to have Americans -- -- For the greater good of trying to have Nancy Pelosi be the news item that outdoor supposed to talk about have one in the country to suffer what -- talked about was he wants a -- congress -- no compromise he's making it -- -- -- really did you read about your article.
He's making it impossible.
To reach accord with the Republican bill it's one thing to say.
He want to flip the house of another thing to say -- purposely wants the American people to suffer these I don't you know if that's possible to get anything done do you agree that for a second.
Yes and so you have to go back to who Barack Obama is remember for years ago when he was campaigning in a way -- He talked about the fundamental transformation of the nation we now have over four years of evidence as to exactly what he meant so what he wants -- the last two years of his presidency to look like his first two years meaning.
A wide open political -- he didn't do this stuff in the first two years what are you talking about he got socialized medicine if he got.
He got in what -- normally would -- -- -- is illegal -- wrong here's here's where you're going wrong you might disagree with Obama care.
All right -- got it done all right he got it done and how did he get it's he doesn't matter how we got majorities in congress doesn't just what he wants for the last two -- It's like here he hasn't even submitted to any group holes do we see the difference right -- that then he was saying I want.
Socialized medicine would have you want to call now he doesn't do anything he just says.
We want to raise taxes here let's raise them again right you've enjoyed this guy I want there's nothing puts forth -- yeah.
He's not a problem solver he isn't fundamental transformer you must offer a dollar not normally presidents I disagree with things that are he's up for two dollars and fifty cents in tax cuts for every dollar -- it has not.
In the cities but it's just for -- that's he's not cuts in Medicare we don't know -- -- that's not specific he's he has to say here -- the programs that are gonna go down.
Here's how we're gonna reform Medicare and social security and the man.
Refuses not true yeah it is here I think I was garlic whole program hope -- not -- the -- you'll see you didn't even widen.
Dare program he's city clients cut entitlements it's tough yeah entirely if you -- program.
What do you want the total because you know why not lie and -- and yeah is typical allies -- why why.
You know you don't like they're an you don't like what he's still can't we don't sit -- -- call me a liar I am.
Give them unlike -- we can ever disagree when not funny a liar and a I don't know -- you're -- that's not -- -- -- I'm not lying with words of encouragement there's a difference between having a disagreement and calling me a liar yes a personal that's why I'm calling -- a -- to be one program he said he caught he would cut.
Medicare and many that you attack not only cuts but is it awkward cut programs you ask for your program those -- programs are that those are programs OK you know when he has said anything that even approaches what you're saying -- he doesn't mean it undid his facility and certainly you also I want I want to -- -- call our.
All right -- I don't usually do what I just -- him.
I asked him four times calls to give me one specific program credible all the federal budget 3.2 trillion dollars worth of spending.
That Obama said he would caught he would watch his actual hurt himself and we walked.
I said he -- hurt himself with his -- because he's talked about mathematics you know do you know any specific 3.2 trillion in spending.
All right I -- calls for one he can't provide.
Can you I cannot people -- -- both of our people both of our people ladies and gentlemen.
Cannot provide one program.
At a 3.2.
Trillion in spending that this president said he would -- and you sit there and you say you're not.
You don't want to the president of -- of the people to suffer in this country that's definitely untrue you think you do this they leave within that Sunni unit oval office for five years do you think he would ever really that's where -- seventeen.
Trillion dollar debt.
And refusing to say one program that he caught.
You don't think that's put the burden on the American people Medicare I keep telling it like you know you're not telling me anything.
Thanks Jack what you're saying there's another -- how important -- it's an obscenity after this right.
No it's not a disagreement you can't back up you can't give me one example.
Of any federal program that he said he would -- Not what I just say.
What we're -- what I did.
Well we -- where is that you can't -- he's going to he's talking about Boehner isn't going to cut it.
It's gonna take money away from the sixties who year olds 58 year old is he -- -- it -- from the states where is he got to cut Medicare would -- be less money going to the states there'd be less money going -- less money reimbursed a doctor and much less actually talked about the cutting the reimbursement.
To doctors at -- this is just.
Pull cutting reimbursements to doctors and Hollywood -- -- -- about this is bull hill answering a question that's what he talked about he talked about cutting reimbursement I'm giving you less work.
All I will say is that this president has done the exact opposite he and Reid and Pelosi have done and an unprecedented spending -- out of the last four years.
He has amassed six trillion dollars in debt over four years which is -- record I'm I'm.
I'm so angry about and I apologize.
Most people I should -- used the word lie.
But you did not put forth here.
Anything that he -- you reimbursements to hospitals you don't know how much you don't know where you don't know to whom you don't know anything and we had a little program and the reason you don't know what.
Is because a guy that you Revere refuses.
To say anything specific about anything all he wants to do is raise taxes.
That's not how you compromise that's not how you get anything done that's not how you bring down -- is actually -- -- -- progressive base by saying you want to cut those that don't give a damn about progressive base.
I give a damn about the American people and we're being content and -- -- and the -- and put not BS I disagree ringtone I disagree.
They go overboard.
No I think it was great I'm finally Monica's book.
What the -- just happen and then it got a very good golf now in paperback next on the rundown this.
