7:08 am
you could see the sort of giddy response. but that's what they have to do because it's the only way, i think they have in terms of political salvation -- >> right. and there's no way to get around the graph. first of all the unemployment number went down to 8.2. while we only added less jobs than we expected. you cannot spin that we are losing 700,000 jobs a month when george bush left office. >> and to think about to that crisis of 2008 to think the liberals were democrats, cheering for the unemployment number. and if unemployment is 9 or 10%, there is no way obama can win a

recollection. no one talks about unemployment -- >> yeah what kind of world are we in where adds 120,000 a job is bad where losing 700,000 is good. >> well, it's all obama's fault anyway. we have talked about this so many times. it's the obama-derangement syndrome. if something is going good they need to find a counter spin. >> yeah. eric wasn't it somebody on romney's campaign when the president was addressing women, they talked about the number of jobs women have lost among obama, and they don't count that most of those were under george bush's policies. >> yeah, and the amazing thing
7:10 am
you still look at the polling. i think it was cnn just last month. the majority of americans still blame george bush. which is amazing, but they see -- most voters see the direct correlation and it drives people at fox news crazy. >> yep. dr. keith ablow, on the fox business. is he diagnosing the president again? >> yes. >> the president has contempt for that branch of government is egocentric and believes that any form of authority, perhaps other than vested in himself is untrustworthy. here is a man for whom nobody came through, right? his father abandoned him. his grandmother intimated that she was afraid of men of his race. so he is predisposed to say

7:12 am
right were amazing. >> yeah, particularly when we all played the audio of george bush saying almost the same thing. >> yeah. george bush was not shy about talking about the judges either. so it's amazing that the right-wing media just delivers this on slot of criticism against obama. and he ignores most of it. but any time even he steps up and it can sizes or has a point of contention with anyone else they just go crazy, and this idea that it is all tied to his childhood upbringing -- >> and he said that on fox business channel. >> eric the ratings are pretty horrible, maybe they should just
