Don't entirely realize how extraordinarily productive we've been these forces first four months I would put these four months up against.
Four months of any prior administration.
Aren't really does the president you want to compare yourself FDR the Manuel to leave the defeat of -- isn't.
Okay let's compare -- Let me at my firm believe.
That the only thing we have -- Parents know.
Our economy is in crisis.
Name unremitting unjustified.
-- Which paralyzed then you -- -- but they'll convert read great game go back.
So -- you wake up what.
And the source of sleepless nights.
There -- some element in the readjustment of our financial system.
-- what and -- pot of gold and that is that confident that the people -- Soul to the job you thought you retire from but now I've lost business you built.
Your dreams of -- act -- now hanging by a threat.
Confidence and courage that we have -- do the best.
Carrying out -- plan.
The impact of this recession is real.
And it is everywhere.
Cry to mommy could.
This day of said the economy might be endeavor.
Let's -- -- world -- -- our public.
Our religion we do not consider ourselves Christian nation and I absolutely.
In America there's a failure to appreciate.
Europe's leading role in the world Anderson breed a suffering humanity.
-- -- -- -- -- deliberate.
They might do let justice varieties.
Among -- black people.
All right so can anyone imagine FDR had.
-- the guy who bombed the Pentagon joining us now is the author of -- Former Clinton adviser Dick Morris all sitting at Dick's columns for free at but isn't really free -- is that nothing's for free really free -- -- your marriage and -- -- Dick Morris stock consciously now comparing himself FDR.
-- -- over on mount Rushmore they -- -- an FFF.
But you know we you know weighing the comparison is an interest in one.
And it certainly in the first four months he's been very active -- proposed a great many things and many of them have passed.
But in the book -- coming out in three weeks catastrophe at the -- section.
Comparing FDR and Obama.
And FDR realized midway through his first term.
That this massive government spending was not.
Going to solve unemployment the lowest he ever got the unemployment rate.
So when he had to run for reelection and I'm reading from a manuscript copy now it's not out yet.
Rather than he and his case to the nation on his record in eradicating the depression.
Roosevelt focused instead on class warfare.
Attacking the economic -- realists who led us into the depression.
And that's really what Obama is doing.
By going after Wall Street and going after those -- from whom we inherited this depression.
He's really staking his position on class warfare rather than economic recover.
Well I agree with that too unending Getty's bankrupting us and and rotting from -- Kensing -- kids in the in the process.
-- -- I want Obama because I was listening with some interest in the -- did yesterday with bill about.
-- -- York.
And and this is a debate we've had for a long time.
In other words should Republicans you think this is a favorite complete she's going to be on the Supreme Court Republicans should back off -- an add on -- not this characterizing your position correct.
Now you're -- it as long as we did as long as the Republicans don't have.
A tax issue -- -- -- issue or is sexual harassment to one of -- things.
Remember how the Democrats played Clarence Thomas they originally treated him with velvet gloves and did not come after him.
Then when you need -- hill made her charges they reopened the hearings and then it was open season.
I think the Republicans have to be strategic here our goal has got to be to defeat this horrible health care proposal.
And as far as I'm concerned this is a side show that we're not going to win.
Well I admit is that a side show up and here's my point maybe this is an ongoing discussion we've had both on the air and off here and that is.
Look she's a judicial activists she made comments that if if any white male that ever made they would instantaneously.
Be out of the process.
She has apparently according to did.
Two lawyers who have argued before she doesn't have the judicial temperament.
There are questions about her and her philosophy.
If Republicans don't stand on principle this is eight life time appointment.
Second have a dramatic impact on society.
If you don't -- -- of those principles what do you stand for.
I don't think it's -- that we can win.
But there are other fights that we can win and one of the new and I would just talking about was the issue of Israel.
The nuggets are definitely a change the subject your -- Why won't -- quite well let me get to the Israel thing in a minute you put up for example.
Chuck Schumer saying hero apparel wool Republicans go after so -- my York but.
I didn't see Democrats have a hard time going after quote Miguel Estrada that infamous memo quote -- dangerous for diseases -- Didn't have a problem attacking Alberto Gonzales or Clarence Thomas why should Republicans be helping this different standard well.
With Thomas the Democrats did.
Played very strategically as I said originally.
They would saying how great he wants and then when Anita Hill came forth -- -- -- I think bogus charges.
The Democrats began to pile on and began to attack tell us so I think the Republicans need to handle this gingerly.
You'd think with the let the comment about Latina women.
Vs white males do you think this New Haven enough firefighter K case reverse discrimination does any of that -- impress you.
Oh well New Haven firefighter I just don't agree with -- The Latino woman comment was outrageous I mean -- thing.
White male judge -- judicial candidate.
Said I think a white man can do a better job of deciding the case that a Latina woman can he'd be thrown off the court.
He'd be impeached little -- not confirmed.
And I think clearly there is a double standard going on.
All right I I gotta give you credit -- would disagree a little bit on this but I thought you wrote one of your best columns ever I am very concerned about national security.
We see what's happening with North Korea.
I'm very concerned about knock wood -- a shot and Israel.
Tell everybody what you put this column about Israel.
I believe that Obama has basically.
Decided to allow Iran to go nuclear.
I think that he's telling Netanyahu that there's a linkage somehow Netanyahu has to surrender additional land.
For a Palestinian state where as we know full well from the experience in giving the Palestinians Gaza.
That as soon as they get territory they set up rocket launchers and use it to attack Israel.
Israel has to sign a phony peace and deal with a group that doesn't want peace in order for the United States to be aggressive against Iran.
In stopping it from going nuclear.
And -- then went -- and does go nuclear it will be that Yahoo!'s fault.
I don't think that Obama realizes that Israel's existence.
Now its its stake.
That literally one atomic bomb dropped in the middle of Israel would kill six million Jews of the Holocaust revisited.
-- on his trip to the Middle East which is cynical if nothing he's going to visit the holocaust museum.
While not visiting Israel.
And in doing so he's going to send a message to Iran that we're going to side with the Muslims in this -- going to side with the Arab world.
And will posturing will tell you you shouldn't go nuclear just like we did with North Korea but just as with the North Korea there will be no consequence but instead.
If Israel attacks you we going to come down on Israel like a ton of bricks and when Leon Panetta went to -- went to Jerusalem.
And met with the Israeli leadership before Obama came to the Middle East his message was don't to attack Iraq.
So what we're doing this with telling you ran we going to let you do whatever you want but Israel will get a -- up sharply if.
You act on our ideals.
It's pretty frightening scenario if he's really abandon these that'll allow -- -- -- -- Without consequences to get the nuclear weapon.
Israel has no choice they're very survival is at stake so that's right that's pretty scary that good to see you thanks for being.
