-- president Barack Obama's so called charm offensive continues in Washington and -- while his friends on the left in the mainstream lap dog media.
All of a sudden the trying to paint him as a bipartisan leader fear not let not your heart be troubled us we're here to set the record straight.
Now in a moment I'll be joined live by the great one mark love then he's gonna help pull back the curtain on this ridiculously transparent GOP outreach program.
But before we -- to his bunker a quick recap of the president's dog and pony show now began early this afternoon -- for the first time in two years the anointed one.
Took time out of his busy golf and vacation scheduled to go face to face for the White House Republicans.
I'm sorry with house Republicans that meeting took place on Capitol Hill it came on the heels of some other not so subtle attempts by the White House.
To portray the most polarizing president in our nation's history as somebody capable of reaching across the -- But unfortunately for this administration it's gonna take more than a single meeting or fancy lunches and dinners.
To bridge the partisan divide that Obama has created in America because of the end of today.
Simply saying -- bipartisan does not make itself.
And no matter how many times Jay Carney Nancy Pelosi George Stephanopoulos or anybody else regurgitate.
The White House charm offensive talking points.
The truth of the matter is the word compromise is not in this president's vocabulary and as we witnessed over the course of the last four years.
He's not somebody who's willing to listen to opposing views.
He's somebody wins political battles by demonizing the right and by fear mongering don't believe me.
Watch for yourself.
This congressional Republican budget.
It's something different altogether it is thinly veiled social -- -- -- this had never seen patients.
Who willingness to listen to accommodate you.
As President Obama has extended.
-- plan which is.
But vanderveer her dirty water so now the president has reached out more broadly among Republicans which I think is good thing these cuts are not Smart and they are not fair they won't hurt our economy.
Don't -- hundreds of thousands of Americans to the unemployment rolls looks.
Start out -- charm offensive this week from President Obama having dinner with senate Republicans talking with Paul Ryan as well over lunch or at least fifty million Americans.
Some are middle class families who have children with autism for Down's syndrome as Americans we be telling.
To fend for themselves.
As you know there have been the president and reaching out having.
Don't conversations and and other kinds of encounters with -- -- and lawmakers of both parties congress allows this meat cleaver approach to take place.
Federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals -- you know that president.
The big talk around Washington is this so called -- and TV as dinner with these Republican.
Legislators to you don't want to have to choose between.
Let's see who lives like clothes and funding for the disabled -- or the portrait.
-- so much for so called bipartisanship joining me now live with reaction is in his bunker the great one mark lemon mark first question.
We have a Nobel Prize winning president the anointed one I call on.
We was surprised as I was today that the -- Obama's the first was not elected the Pope.
Well you know they actually have something in common -- on -- -- is the Pope is a Pope who.
Who cares about the core core and Obama is the president who creates more poor so they have something in common and Africa well that's a pretty good point.
What about you know the president.
It was one week ago mark you -- talking about and your radio show I've been talking about it here on my radio show.
-- the apocalyptic.
Doom and gloom over sequestration.
Republicans hate that no immunization for kids on and on and on.
And you hear we just played for the president now what charm offensive why would anybody believe that.
While they wouldn't it's my understanding in order to be -- you need to have.
One of these Sean this is this is a white board you know now.
And I I thought I'd put something together for liberals here just just so liberals can that just for the liberals this is just a long -- okay.
-- -- It -- now bombing equals bankruptcy.
And bankruptcy means starving kids know vaccines.
Starting seniors -- student loans no Social Security Medicare Medicaid.
No free contraceptives not -- are really taking off.
Let's say they have massive tax increases craving they got make.
-- -- Not you -- but the lives out there and a thousand years of that darkness so.
Yes so all these things can happen that Obama talks about if Obama gets his way.
Why let me let me give you the latest pile on.
And the president we just the last clip that we just showed this is the -- he was talking to George Stephanopoulos who played it last night in the Geddes back to saying.
-- gonna have to cut kids cut kids that's not what Paul Ryan's budget does but -- and Democrats.
And the rhetoric the propaganda the misinformation.
And frankly the lies that they continue to tell.
Patrol the state.
You look at its principles you look at his vision and there are a nightmare for America he wants Americans to work until they die.
He wants for people get sick not to be able to see a doctor not to get the care they need not to be able to get better he wants them to die.
This is the alternative to balance.
Did it get results in.
-- -- tax hikes on middle class Americans and results and undue burden on.
Middle class Americans through.
The cuts envisioned this.
Republican budget once again takes -- ideological.
Uncompromising approach to addressing that budget challenge.
Perhaps -- best thing I can tell you about the Republican budget is that.
Here we go again yesterday Americans got their first look at this year sworn in Republican budget.
Turns out looks like.
Last year's Brian Republican budget.
And I wasn't the only one I was going one -- she lives not again.
Are -- fearless leader -- There's they're fearless leader mark demagogued so they demagogue why you laughing.
I'm laughing because these are what I'll call the Jim Jones Democrats these these people are unbelievable with the what what their time -- them.
Many throughout few facts on the table the Government Accountability Office you know the one that works for Harry Reid and Obama.
They said there's a 125.
Billion dollars an estimated improper payments in the federal government I've got another one of their reports.
Billion dollars -- duplicate them wasteful programs in the federal government that's a lot of money.
I've got another document here as summary.
The Social Security Medicare boards of -- I think they work for Obama.
And they say here Medicare and Social Security cannot sustain protected long term program costs.
And that somebody needs to do something about it very fast.
What has Obama done about any -- that's not thing about the 500 billion dollars nothing about the 125 billion dollars.
Nothing about Social Security Medicare or Medicaid.
And then they go around talking about how they care about people they don't care about anybody they represent big government.
And that's all they represent.
And mark the results aren't good I mean let's be honest here we have nine million people fewer millions fewer Americans in the work force.
Fifty million Americans these are real people.
That -- that that now find themselves on food -- because there's no opportunity in the country one -- six Americans in poverty.
The Republican budget as proposed by Ryan and then you may have disagreements we didn't feel free to tell me if you do we don't I don't care.
But 3.4 percent increase in spending every year for ten years isn't a cut.
I don't care even if -- using a Washington DC calculator that's not a cut.
I have a question for you Harry Reid have a question for you present -- Obama.
Our entitlement that's on unfunded liabilities are over -- nine.
Where is your proposal our fiscal operating deficit.
Is where sixteen and a half trillion dollars -- what he gonna do about it you're not gonna do anything about it you just said Mr.
That we don't have they yet eight deficit crisis and if we don't have a deficit -- debt crisis why do you keep wanting to raise taxes still our -- Now let me tell you something -- this man and this party is ideologically driven.
They're like the pied piper trying to take the country over the cliff and we have to stop it and that's what we're trying to go and when the economic system collapses all -- are talking about food housing.
Senior citizens everybody's gonna suffered miserably and that's what we're trying to prevent.
And that's the thing I mean what anybody would nice to see can see where we're headed and if you want a local -- vision if the Democrats have their way.
Just go look at Greece and Spain and Portugal in Europe and you'll see what happens.
The thing is that.
We they just got their tax increase a matter of fact -- -- you know they got to tax increases at the start of this year.
They got the new obamacare tax and they got the fiscal -- tax three months later the back now the democratic budget in the senate which by the way they haven't produced in four years.
Now they want another trillion dollars to take out of the economy.
It's how -- the Republicans deal with this we we ice had John Boehner on my radio show Paul Ryan on the show last night what are your thoughts what are they doing right what are they doing wrong.
Well actually doing something -- help proposing budgets and doing all that's all well -- good data continuing resolution last week.
That they could have used to trying to cut some of obamacare administrative expenses.
Put some language -- -- -- -- -- cartel obamacare Obama care is the big killer in this society not -- of health -- -- of -- in the constitution.
And what -- they don't they vote for.
Not only -- they vote for -- they don't even allow conservatives in the house to put an amendment on it.
Obama is not taking Boehner seriously he's taken him around like a soccer ball that's the problem the Republicans have got to show that they mean something.
If they don't this is going to continue.
And as far as Obama goes Mr.
President you said you would not raise taxes on the middle class you increase those payroll taxes.
Why do you keep lying to the American people.
You said you would raise taxes on the middle class we've got all kinds -- taxes on medical devices on insurance plans that are passed on to the people.
All kinds of -- is it not only that.
Businesses are -- to reduce employment forty hours a week thirty hours a week to 29 hours a week.
You've done this you've done this to the middle class why do you keep lying about it.
You know mark you and I had.
Mpeg from day one another some Johnny come lately is now that jumped on the scene and actually after five years have figured it out but.
I got to say something is being more damage being done right before -- it's got to be stopped.
We're gonna come back more the great one mark lemon when we return right out of.
