6:13 am
that would be a 6-3 decision. >> yeah. yep. all right. mark lavin, this is fun for the soothing voice quality. >> it's one thing for a president to criticize the court once he has a decision. there is no decision to read. he is trying to influence and intimidate, because none of the points he made yesterday or the day before were even legal points. they were absurd points. >> wow, he really elevates the discussion, doesn't he? >> yeah. >> he is never one to intimidate, is he? >> no. >> stephanie miller one of the most popular liberal hosts in america. >> he was mocking it. >> okay. >> he did a romney to that clip.

6:15 am
never mind. all right. lou dobbs on fox business. >> somehow there has been a leak from the supreme court that this president has advance word of the early vote taken friday and these rather intemp rate i think it is reasonable to say remarks by the president have been motivated by -- by that knowledge. >> oh i see.

6:37 am
power exists. president obama made a statement that can -- both enacted by democratic elected officials. it would be unprecedented for the court to strike it down. president obama clarified. he said he intended the second meeting he would go into more detail. as the president explained, we have not seen a court overturn the law that was passed on an economic issue. >> the supreme court is the final say on our constitution and our laws and all of us have to respect it. but it's precisely because of that extraordinary power that the court has traditionally exercised significant restraint. >> yeah, exactly. and as someone pointed out the
6:38 am
fifth circuit -- like some of the stuff scalia said the other day. this is how politicians behave. the only possible reason that smith could make a letter is because republicans believe it would force the doj to produce a document that would embarrass the president politicly. >> bobby in california. >> hi, how are you doing. i was just going to say that everybody needs to be on that -- be on the health care and the -- the judges need to pass it, and stuff like that. and i also have a question for you. i was wondering -- because i have been watching president obama and all of the stuff he
6:39 am
has to propose to the congress and stuff like that. and i was wondering why they shoot him down for everything? like almost everything he has tried to pass, they have been trying to shoot him down. >> yes. >> are they just trying to shoot him down and try to get the presidency, and are they going to try to pass -- >> bobby they went on record as saying it. mitch mcconnell actually said our number one priority is making sure this is a onetime president. and could i use the word, unprecedented. in their fill busting, of everything the president has tried to pass. there's a little bit of douche nozeling. hi bill. >> i want everybody to have the

6:41 am
obama supposedly attacking the supreme court. wasn't that a press conference, and he was asked a specific question. it wasn't a speech where he came out and started trashing them. he was asked a question while he was having a press conference. >> oh, you and your context. >> just answering questions, his opinion. >> blah, blah blah. >> i think what the president said a couple of day ago was appropriate. he indicated that we obviously respect decisions that courts make under our system of government. >> sure. even the right-wing douche nozzles. what? yeah. nancy pelosi believes the supreme court will uphold the law. she said i'm predicting 6-3 in favor. but we shall see. it's a lessen in specifics. scalia is predicting 10-1
6:42 am
against. >> yeah, because he is no good at math. president obama had called her -- called her -- blah blah blah -- the president called and said -- right after it passed. last night when you passed the bill i was happier than i was when i was elected president. if you agree with the affordable care act or you don't. you can't possibly think the president didn't mean to do something good. didn't think, this would be good if people didn't be discriminated against for preexisting conditions, if we can try to solve some of the enormous problems in our health care system. >> right, but according to people on the far right the president is trying to destroy the country with this. >> but keeping people alive. >> yes who should otherwise be dead. >> if it wasn't said on cable news, i didn't hear it chris.
6:43 am
i'm a little pop culture deficient in these days. >> i noticed. >> how are these republican candidates made? >> yes. and there is a show on the discovery channel that is called "how it is made." and this is how republicans are made. >> on this episode of how it's made, republican candidates prefabricated republican police call candidates have come a long way. it starts with a big block of poly sigh reen. a worker pushes the finely-crafted body parts out of the block of foam. these body parted are fitted with a variety of clothing options. after the candidate has been clothed, a worker attaches central processing units and memory chips. the whole assembly is painted

rick santorum campaign spokesman predicted his candidate might not even get one vote in dc. because of the insiders without making mention that his candidate failed to make the ballot there. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> that's the best way not to get one vote, is not be on the ballot. >> yeah. how did that screw that up that badly -- >> the answer is that it was never a serious campaign until it was. >> right. >> and remember he didn't even win iowa until several weeks after. >> right. >> and the money that comes in by winning an early victory allows you to go forward. so for the first couple of weeks it looked like he was out of the race. and then he was rediscovered and then they went south, and the farther south he went the more votes he got.
7:10 am
>> his own staff is like i thought he was a joke in a sweater vest. >> yeah, no one could afford to do a serious campaign. and part of the charm was that it seemed to be this man of the people thing. that's the one thing that he does better than mitt romney. >> right. >> but there was no money in it. and literally without money, you don't have the staff to get yourself on the ballot. he was on the ballot in a number of districts in ohio. >> wow. this will come as a great shock to you. wisconsin and maryland romney still struggling to win over low-income voters. >> huh. >> yeah. >> but including states he has lost big time he has always won with people making $100,000 a year or more. >> these are pour people. >> he has those people nailed
7:11 am
down. >> yeah, and have two cars. >> romney wins among wealthy voters. >> huh. >> the trend continues in -- he won maryland and wisconsin. romney's vote share increases and income goes up, and he captured a big majority of the wealthiest. unable to break those making under $100,000 a year. >> which is why republicans are working so hard to keep poor people from voting. >> just rich people should vote. >> it's not a poll tax, but that's exactly what they want. making it harder to register to vote, and harder to participate in the process is aimed at keeping the people who would vote against mitt romney from showing up. it's working at the state level actually. unfortunately. >> speaking of the vice presidents -- you saw rubio --

9% shift among republicans. and among 18 to 24 year olds, are nearly 80%. >> children of the future. >> yeah. >> it has been the civil rights win of the last 20 years, really. it is a total turn around and it is because of the hard work of a movement of people. but it was connected to the crisis of hiv aids. and people need to realize how often opportunities for advancement are built on the tragedy and struggle of loss and people who have incomed united like an experience like aid. and it's because -- the leaders, the -- just the fierce intensity of desire for a legacy and frankly the movement in infrastructure that was built, the organizations, the training grown, the place where leaders were built, and that -- it is on that infrastructure of
7:40 am
that -- of that -- amazing epidemic, and -- and the fighting of act up and the activism on the streets, and building an orchestra of a movement, an hiv that then built what we have now. >> yeah, well -- my -- in my case my high school boyfriend died of aids and that was certainly one of the things that help politicizing me. he was the best guy i ever new. and that's exactly what is happening in a lot of these movements. particularly i think gay rights. the more people have a human face it's your sister doctor brother, or favorite radio host i think the polls are showing that that is the biggest predicator is that you know somebody. >> yes.
