-- -- anti the president is attending to the nation's business now after weeks of delaying some major decisions.
He's finally focusing on something that all Americans can support.
And that's Chris Dodd's campaign for reelection yup the president spent the -- stumping for countrywide -- favored senator at a fund raiser.
Where tickets sold for as much as 2400.
Dollars a plate.
-- the Connecticut senator has been struggling with a low approval rating for months now.
So it actually the president came to his rescue and I'm sure all of you were out there waiting for the president to take up the nation's real business.
You can understand this meanwhile the White House while they continue their war against the Fox News Channel.
And they continue to maintain they won't engage with this network -- -- know the administration was so strict when it came to deciding who would have would not talk to.
How this president is willing to talk to let's say we got Daniel Ortega Hugo Chavez Jeremiah Wright bobbled -- and then as god but he draws the line that.
Little -- me.
You gotta be kidding talking to about a warped worldview.
Now in the spirit of the president's White House -- summit I am proposing.
A football summit.
Just me the president and this Hannity football autographed by many NFL players and coaches and by the way it's a -- little nerve -- And joining me now reaction all this is the host of Huckabee right here on the Fox News Channel former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee -- that we will sit -- If you could talk to Chavez and and hard everybody could hurt look at -- we have Lou -- we have Jimmie Johnson we have Mickey -- you've signed it.
It's if it's gotta be what will bring all this together I'll give the -- give it to the president -- -- it will donate to charity there you -- company sent out of that that's a fair deal.
Ali would pay for the beer in the spirit of spreading along if he wants it to us seldom football and all the money goes to Chris -- really good that's been all bets are off aren't they shot.
This is serious -- to this and I.
I'm video and the -- maybe it's distraction.
Biggest energized the base but I.
They have -- engaging in the politics of personal destruction against insurance companies they -- -- at the Fox News.
They go on after Humana.
They go and after what the chamber of commerce why why -- -- do.
I don't think he's acting like a junior -- senior varsity he's acting honestly more like a sophomore are freshman in the game.
We -- present -- United States you have to understand.
It's going to be a rough and tumble game.
And he's taking everything personally.
He's acting as if that these are personal attacks against him any truth we're replying with personal tax insurance companies were within the -- betrayed them.
And made them the bad guys demonize them.
The chamber of commerce if they disagree with the policy position he goes on now on calls in the double.
There's a real wall and I don't think a lot of people understand there's a very clear wall that I think all of a sea between the -- side in the commentary side you know our new side operates with integrity -- -- all right I know a lot of these news people you know the ones that went to Iraq and Afghanistan a war zones and Hurricane Katrina.
Before adoring -- after.
It really terrific coverage -- I think some of the best in journalism.
But we also have people asked tough questions.
And we have this is the opinion page of a newspaper -- this is the editorial page.
Why do you think the -- And -- cents a I think it's partly to distract away from the real issues at hand the intricacies of health -- the intricacies of cap and trade.
I've always have when government gets in a -- -- we gotta do this right now.
The reason -- in a hurry is not because of the urgency of the issue it's because of keeping it secret so you don't find out what's in that bill.
And this is a slight of hand look what's going on in one hand while the other hand is the one who's really performing the trick we're getting -- on some of -- stuff what -- Why would he campaign for Chris Dodd.
A guy you know Chris -- was out there he talking about pays -- and then you know how it's disgraceful -- at -- -- he gets a sweetheart deal as the chair of the finance committee.
And the president why -- the president -- line with that.
He needs every senator that he can possibly get right now because every vote is gonna.
Perhaps be the deciding vote in some of these very very.
Stunning kind of policies he's trying to push on the American people by way of the US senate G -- Nancy closest line.
It isn't a tax increase -- the elimination of the tax decrease.
And that's who that's great rhetoric and and certainly a -- of -- romance -- -- But it's an amazing thing when it's always a play on words.
You know it's not attacks it's an investment are and in an expenditure.
And it's and on -- since it's an assessment.
That this is that the language of of game playing and American people are sick of it they want people to be straight up.
And tell us what you gonna do and and go out and do -- the president has said repeatedly in his campaign and as president what he would do transparencies no lobbyist who's gonna have.
Five days with the bills on the Internet.
If you start taking a look at what he promised what he's delivering there's a 180 degrees what do you make of I think the Democrats are in trouble congress.
You know even politics the other 21% approval rating you've got trouble -- people see her home state has 31% Harry Reid in his state is in the thirties.
You've got Chris Dodd and trouble yet read it in trouble promising a vaporized his opponents you know you got the blue dogs on the fence.
Then you got liberals demanding the government option or else.
They're gonna work to get rid of these Democrats -- which probably isn't there -- -- and a lot of trouble when the numbers get that low in the real -- drop below 42.
They're in real trouble.
And part of what is again happening with this whole let's go after the chamber and Fox News -- all the enemies.
You know what I'd love to hear not so much the public comments would you like to find out what they're saying in the Oval Office when they get in their -- -- and they they called again they call the play before they go out.
To the podiums and the microphones and say it.
Because as harsh as it sounds publicly.
It's a hundred times more intense when they're in their in the locker room plotting their strategy -- and it's gonna be a 10%.
Okay the president kept saying over and over again in a worst economy since the Great Depression -- having to raise the debt ceiling to thirteen trillion.
Dollars Democrats are the trying to hide it.
And we got the president you know he's got time to campaign.
Go -- medications.
Play golf flight Copenhagen.
Engage in these wars against the comer.
The you know commerce somebody called.
The chamber conference -- conference insurance companies Fox News when is he ever spend time thinking and governing.
Well that's one of the issues that he's gonna have to confront and I think.
What Americans are very unhappy about is that he has had more time.
To do campaign fund raisers and he has to answer his general in Afghanistan who has been waiting by the phone.
A finding out are you gonna send me the -- you said you're gonna put me here and get the job done.
Do it or don't but let me know what the answer is -- is no decision this is amazing.
A statistic came out this week 49 out of fifty states there's a lot of people in our audience suffering.
Forty million out of fifty states of lost jobs he promised just the opposite.
The stimulus we -- another study.
We'll pay and 73000.
Dollars a job which stimulus money and Christina Romer says basically we've had the the benefits of that are ready.
-- what I think we're seeing is the lack of executive experience on the part of the president his only governmental experience was legislative.
The purpose of the legislative branches to deliberate the purpose of the executive branch is to make a decision if he -- of the liberator.
And he is not as George Bush would save the decider and we've got to have somebody who can say look.
When it lands on my desk it's been passed up all the way.
Through the latter people who can't make this decision and I've got to do do you do you think he's risking becoming like Jimmy Carter which was -- failed presidency.
Do you think that -- -- -- very much so but the real question is after the mid term elections when I think Republicans are gonna have a significant gain.
Does he have the capacity to make midcourse corrections will he -- -- his sort of hubris and pride about I'm right everybody's wrong.
Make -- course correction if he does.
He can go back and when re election if he does not.
He could be like Carter only the second president in -- in since 1868.
Whose party lost the White House after four years I think he's far more ideological than Clinton and I think that makes that possible.
Clinton was a pragmatist whatever people wanna say about Bill Clinton he -- I wanted to make something happen that's why we have NAFTA welfare reform.
And some tax cuts governor good to see -- we will be watching it right when I get back this weekend I wish he was but we're gonna have -- John on the bus and some students writing a song -- -- and all the show.
Cards thanks governor appreciate it.
