How is America -- divided nation welcome to the slide studio audience edition of Hannity.
Out tonight for the entire hour will be tackling the most controversial issues facing the country for race relations to obamacare immigration a much more no topic tonight is off limits.
Because as we've seen in the wake of the Zimmerman verdict and even following the 2012 presidential election.
There is a great divide that exists here in America today and it's time to explore why.
Now in a few minutes you -- senator Tea Party favorite Mike -- will join us from Washington.
He's gonna tackle the sensitive issue of health care.
And that a liberal and conservative collide when Juan Williams will square off with former Florida congressman colonel Allen west on the topic of race.
Before before we get all of that's -- welcome -- -- brilliant studio audience will be here for the next sixty minutes good to see all welcome.
I scale of one to ten shout out numbers how divided is America ten be in the most divided 888.
-- -- ten.
Cat Noel white -- -- Every time they -- because I think Barack Obama when he got to be president immediately started on class warfare and -- immediately started with into the race and -- -- -- a shaking your head that it's true we are more divided our nation is more divided.
Ever since he took precedent I think it's one of the worst thing that's ever happened.
And I feel that within people I deal with donors and I feel that with money.
I feel that with race I feel that every aspect that we can't I think Obama care I think everything that he -- dad has been nothing but divide us as a nation.
Are more numbers when we got top mind.
Off the charts -- higher than ten if -- Nicole Obama should be a lot leader I mean I'm -- More of playing the role of the leader and unfortunately I really don't think that -- he has injected the race -- the child Welfare -- Graham Clarke.
Anything to push his big government agenda because he believes more in the government and our -- all you -- -- compliment there.
It's the fundamental differences Obama brought in huge government programs and he's facing resistance for those of us who believe in individual liberties and -- what it comes down to stay this one thing right governments and certainly want limited government apparently.
That fundamentally it is what it is and we're all one America you can -- different views and disagree politely.
Bill Clinton brought America together Republicans like Ronald Reagan did.
President what they probably don't want America you just said eight out of ten were divided we are the president and both parties have divided this country.
But it doesn't have to be -- -- we have the greatest nation on earth and we're not of people -- -- and I don't think children aren't gonna.
There's an excellent how many on the scale of one attentively were Republicans for the divide they're not under by no -- -- I jetBlue.
Can send out -- -- -- what.
And blame Republicans I don't think we can blame liberals -- don't think we can blame our president I think that he represents.
The majority and the government supposed to be for the people not -- He sets the tone the president sets the tone dial this back to obamacare.
Which was a huge government expansion the president -- if you don't agree with me -- -- informing people.
That was creating a fear and the -- right there if you don't agree with me you did you -- -- forming over the.
I don't resolve the big issue here is we've got a president who's acting very un presidential he needs to stop -- and Barney Fife and cherry -- and he's a local crime stories.
And he needs to focus on the big issues of the day stop dividing us President Obama.
-- first the final is a Tea Party member Jennifer.
-- believe the nation divided it's about a three because I really believe we as Americans are that divided when I believed isn't some presidents bring out the worst in us Lyndon Johnson is one that comes media tonight.
Richard Nixon and I -- and Barack Obama.
-- -- But it via in this -- look I haven't -- Great today were heightened sense of divide because of this is a member and we just saw there is unbelievable people Obama and of great political speech and he's a perfect order and he could do in -- -- -- of the best of me that was a great speech about all want America.
The speeches he's given on the heels of this verdict.
In the polar opposite -- what I've seen there he's talking about this being a -- -- he actually pod prism this country to destroy it for was wrong which is outrageous Floyd was outraged.
-- -- -- -- I -- I love all of the folks in the audience they are living outside of reality that this country has been that I everybody here is al-Qaeda.
That country has been more divided than other times we have to understand that our media has been democratize.
Everything all of the controversy all of the division is actually taking place in high division.
Millions of pixels of the hate and opinion what eight people who have a platform who in Florida -- yeah.
Saying that when we had Bill Clinton -- president Ronald ray let me bring an exam it's not going to let my view is that we all have platforms and waits to address when the.
Can -- say Republicans want dirty air and water.
And that's -- -- plan or they want kids with autism balances driven the elderly to fend for themselves big election issue is that the question.
What are what is that the -- on what has been divisive with Republicans.
Is that for the thought I'd ask that question -- the -- -- the Republicans have gone into congress and said.
We are not going to govern we get paid to come into this building this beautiful capital -- -- -- -- our democracy and good and not actually to -- Yes that was -- -- -- do you know and -- act is now.
-- moved down another.
It says that Republicans want kids with autism and Down syndrome and the elderly to fend for themselves I -- -- he was divisive election be about congress and I.
-- president of vice numbers but you -- just like all eighteen saying don't -- to talk about congress got it all you're ever in the history of new.
I'm a Democrat he is to visit it is very very sad that he's not acting to unify the country.
Lyndon Johnson passed the civil rights -- come on don't call him a bad person.
We need people like that with big ideas and want to bring the country to -- got to dial.
Fundamental divide in this country there are people who are fighting to restore constitutional principles and there -- people there fighting to expand the role of government beyond its means we have to recognize that so there is a fight going on right now they know they are.
Let me agree with with what can I say here do you do you believe in bigger government or a TI don't think this can be reconciled or limited -- Jason.
It's not divided government percent that I think is the problem it's the the racial division and again I think the president.
Sets the tone he started at the top and what's what's sad is that this president has not hesitated.
To divide the country by race.
When it suits -- political needs whether it's the calling voter ID laws racist quarterbacks and Jim Crow.
Whether it's using his administration to support racial emissions and college and college campuses and so -- When it suits his purposes he will divide the country -- -- -- gracefully and vote and -- -- Martins is the latest example.
Okay well here I've gotten bigger and and -- had racial division we have a generational gap.
That does peak of the imposition of -- right now are what boomers and the you have the Millen meals -- Heidi covers almost 60% of them are multi cultural in nature who think differently.
I think it's gonna take another generation to take positions of authority and power and representation.
For us to really get something -- united.
I'm Mary I worry we're not there yet but -- future and the changing face of America and the trends show it already are most.
I got carried picket -- what they came loans that they did in much.
Remember this president even before he got to office.
He was actually -- -- the race of the body did you Hillary Clinton.
He had pretty much accused her of a big -- during the primaries then we got into office what happened skip gates remembered that he was the professor over at Harvard yet have a big beer summit actually act ancient and clean up there to clean that up.
I honestly we had to think about how this president has admitted using.
The whole race is an issue to try and also make looked at Tea Party yours as as as registering it's that my ten and I -- -- look at the mentor he's a Democrat that we are -- Why are amazing that we have conveniently skipped over all of the bush Cheney years did not -- bush Cheney and -- rove is the enforcer not divide this country and we talk about big government vs small government.
How many of us are now benefiting from the fact that this president got the unemployment rate from over 10% down to under -- -- we should.
All of that we should all be thankful for -- Could alternately popular.
How scared they'll get about health you're gonna get into that President Bush talked to -- about personal responsibility for healthcare fitness exercise cutting down on health care -- obamacare by contrast divisive extending extending an entitlement let's take care of you you'll get sick.
Tremendous health care total cost will all take care of you but what's -- gonna cost.
I've went flat part yes.
We have and we got everybody it has surpassed major social legislation bipartisan support when President Bush with No Child Left Behind Medicare part.
-- Obama came into office with a kind of rhetoric that he -- uniter and he just -- -- partisan legislation through congress that tone in their since healthcare was rammed down our throat.
