arrival of death con [ bleep ] in reaction to the obama administration [ bleep ] for illegal immigrants meets criteria. you can start to just feel the eruptions. when he says something. you say death con [ bleep ] is the second highest level of outrage conservative reactions to anything republicans do [ bleep ] all the way up to death con lewinsky. >> actually shut down the functioning of the government. >> stephanie: in such a tizzy fit. the standard g.o.p. line, you predicted, the white house abrogated the rule of law. >> you must go through congress for everything but war. >> stephanie: yeah. it really is amazing how transparent it is. how completely the opposite of everything that happened in the bush administration is. >> the same people that went along with every time that bush issued an executive order had no problem with it. now, of course are just waving

6:36 am
and this was during the time when there was a democratic house. so if we had been living under the rational rules of operating the senate as we had for so long, it would have passed. >> stephanie: that's the thing. rude, it makes my head explode. like clockwork the republican pundits say he should have passed it when he had a democratic congress. we never had a democratic majority because of their obstructionism. >> well, we had -- the problem was for the first year, we had a -- we had a democratic congress but we also had ben nelson. so it was a majority minus ben nelson. >> stephanie: but you're right. >> when we had the 60 votes. >> stephanie: i don't know where i'll find the latest poll. 70 some percent of the american people are for the dream act. as you say right -- they'll have their hate-gasm. real people will say sure. >> most people are going to say wow, that's rational and

compassionate and you know what? hey, why not. you know what? these are probably friends of my children who hung out at my house. yeah, they're fine. >> stephanie: as you say the politics of it is just -- that's the icing on the cake that that's so good. because it makes mitt romney look exactly like the soulless, principle-free person that he is. president obama changed it. with the romney campaign focused on the economy, a romney bus tried to disrupt the speech by honking. as romney heads off on a magic bus trip. have a great time, mitt. guess what everybody is going to ask you about now [ bleep ] and shove your horn up your ass. i love that. >> thank you.

6:38 am
blowers up your ass. that would be great. axelrod is the one to do it. >> stephanie: again. that's my take on it, rude. this is once again like marriage equality, this is leadership. the shorter version of president obama's statement is somebody's gotta get [ bleep ] done and imagine the convulsion of revulsion that would have vomited if a liberal reporter had interrupted the president while he was making a statement. once again rude, there he is just pure class. you know. he does not react. someone yells you lie. adam puts their finger in his face. never happened before. president's never been interrupted in the rose garden before. >> no. bush had to go overseas to have a shoe thrown at him no matter how bad we wanted to do it. that was at an actual press conference where people could ask questions. this was an announcement. and the press knows this except for the idiots and nut jobs over at things like "the daily caller" or the blaze who don't
6:39 am
understand that yes you're right. the president should always be asked questions. but a little bit of decorum here. let him finish what he has to say. >> house this nut bag get a press pass in the first place? >> i'm sure it was one of those we better make sure we don't get any an taggism on the right by denying their people. >> f that. i'm tired of being nice to the far right bloggers. >> they're not journalists. >> stephanie: raised money on you lie at the president during the state of the union. it is really -- rude -- you can't have a disagreement with the president. you don't stick your finger in his face on camera. >> the guy is a freaking immigrant. check the status of his entire family. >> he's an immigrant from ireland. >> the other thing was the way the president handled it, the look he gave this guy, i would have been thinking oh, crap, there is a drone missile heading for my house. >> stephanie: one of the teeny tiny drones on its way.

[birds chirping] >> obama: precisely because this is temporary congress needs to act and answer to your question, sir and the next time i prefer you let me finish your statements before you ask that question. if this is the right thing to do for the american people. i didn't ask for an argument. i'm answering your question. it is the right thing to do for the american people and here's why. >> go about -- you drunken leprechaun. take your pot of gold. >> seriously! >> stephanie: he's a far better man than i. i would not -- he's just -- that is -- once again using the word unprecedented. that's unprecedented.

6:57 am
provides certainty and clarity for the people who come into this country through no fault of their own. >> stephanie: then they asked him would you repeal this. he wouldn't say. wouldn't commit. i don't know. >> wow, look at the trees. they're the right height. i love the lakes. >> stephanie: undocumented children of the right height -- >> oh beautiful for spacious skies. for amber something something. >> stephanie: he's the most awkward man in the world!

[no audio] >> it has become a trend for the g.o.p. candidate to go after the president's policies being as vague as possible. on face face, he refused to offer up an alternative to the president's just announced changes in immigration policy. >> we'll look at the setting as we reach that. my anticipation is i would come into office and say we need to get this done on a long-term
7:00 am
basis, not this kind of a stop gap measure. >> on the economy, mitt romney is promising particulars for example he says he wants to cut taxes and spur growth but refuses to name the particularú loopholes or deductions he would eliminate in order to generate the necessary revenue. and on the same that president obama announced his new immigration policy, arizona sheriff joe arpaio arrested a 6-year-old undocumented girl travelling with 15 other people believed to be undocumented. the girl told them she was from el salvador and the sheriff's office turned her over to immigration and customs enforcement. arpaio says the fact that it happened the same day of president obama's announcement is coincidental but he also said the new policy will have no effect on his approach to arresting undocumented immigrants. as stephanie mentioned we're awaiting for decisions from the supreme court. we're not sure what those in particular will be. whatever we don't hear about today, we could hear on thursday. so all on stand-by right now.

7:07 am
there's nothing wrong with being inquisitive. there's been -- matt lewis from daily caller was on cnn saying of course the press should be skeptical -- i mean strawman after strawman after strawman. you stood in the back of a presidential white house press statement with your hands in your pocket yelling at the guy. that's what you did. and either you're going to stand by it and you're going to say you know, i'll do it again or you apologize. you have an ounce of dignity and someone at the daily caller apologized but this mushy middle approach of oh, well, gee i thought -- you know, i thought he was done talking. that's why i yelled at the president. mid sentence. it has been so embarrassing on so many levels and it sums up -- this is beyond obama derangement syndrome. the right wing media essentially views obama as a common criminal and this is the way you treat a common criminal.
7:08 am
and why anyone from "the daily caller" is invited to white house events is beyond me. >> stephanie: yep. exactly. love your other tweet. catholic bishops strongly support the dream act. in addition to richard land, evangelical leader. this is amazing. >> yeah. obama is supposed to be waging this war on religion, specifically supposed to be waging this war on the catholic church. who has been absolutely outfront year after year in terms of immigration reform and specifically in terms of the dream act. it has been the united states bishop but boy fox news didn't talk about that on friday. they talked about this egregious -- so it is obvious fox news uses the catholic church and uses there should they use bishops purely for political reasons and when it suits them they'll pretend that obama is waging the war on catholics. what obama is in step with the
7:09 am
catholics when it comes to immigration. flush down the memory hole. no one there to talk about that. >> stephanie: your earpiece. i gingerly tiptoe being that i'm speaking to you from a clear channel station. >> i was thinking about that when i was writing it. nothing wrong with -- go ahead. >> stephanie: $100 million contract. i have to say and i'm not just saying for this eric. we have -- this is a great station here. we have a great sales staff that brings me a new advertiser every day. just, you know, came to tell me by the way we're doing great here for beating the big heritage station. there is a lot of great stations around the country. look everybody knows the story. they replaced my show in san francisco on the current channel station with glenn beck. ratings went down 90%.
7:10 am
how do you get $100 million contract? how does that happen? >> this is interesting. we'll talk a little bit of radio economics. they did it with rush limbaugh when his contract was up. everybody knows the radio industry has been hurting because people are leaving in some form for their -- particularly on the music side for theipod for free digital download of music. radio has been struggling to keep its audience. here is rush limbaugh. his contract was up. there was no one on the landscape. none of the big players could match his clear channel contract so they gave him a 40% raise. glenn beck, his contract was just up. no one who can really match who clear channel is paying him so they double his contract. clear channel as you know, as everyone in the radio business knows, has laid off thousands and thousands and thousands of employees. >> my friends and coworkers. >> the last three or four years.
7:11 am
>> radio people on the beach thanks to clear channel. they're doubling his contract. >> stephanie: everything is so public but i mean that is true. that's why everybody knows that the public thing that there's so much debt on the company that some stations have to take shows that will pay to get on. we're not going to do that. it has created an economic climate in radio. you're right. that has not skewed toward fairness. >> the question is why would this company be so interested in overpaying for double, the salaries of its right wing radio talk show host? it is a legitimate question. >> stephanie: i had 90% higher ratings and as chris said, i would do it for half this. let's dive into the right-wing world. charles krauthammer. >> beyond the politics and the process is simply constitutional decency. this is out and out lawlessness. what's ironic is for eight
7:12 am
years, the democrats have been screaming about the imperial price, the bush administration, the nonsense about the unitary scwuf. this is out and out lawlessness. this is not how you govern. that's the first issue that should be on the table. >> stephanie: wow. it is out and out lawlessness it is the old west, eric. >> impeach impeach! i don't know if you're going to play the clip of limbaugh on friday. we're talking about -- krauthammer was talking about -- >> the nixon clip? >> we've got that coming up next. >> there we go. >> stephanie: let's listen to that eric. >> 40 years ago richard nixon was hounded out of office supposedly for his illegal actions. i'm telling you, whatever nixon did pales in comparison to just this move today. obama declaring amnesty for 800,000 illegals based on their
7:13 am
youth status. >> stephanie: wow. there it is. >> awesome. richard nixon was running a criminal enterprise out of the west wing of the white house. but this obama -- his move on the dream act pales in comparison to whatever nixon was "supposedly" doing with watergate. look, you know, of course they're upset. of course they're screaming lawlessness and imperial precedent. i'm pretty sure congress has had the chance to act on this for years and years. the republicans particularly in the senate, they will not even you know, address the obama agenda. they won't even give it the decency of debate. they won't do votes. this is eventually when you won't engage when the process won't work. this is one of the options the president has. >> stephanie: yep, i know. lou dobbs and bill o'reilly.
7:14 am
>> what makes this objectionable to me today among other things is he blames republicans saying he couldn't get it through congress. we can't wait. and completely distorts the reality and the record. >> that being said and we all know -- >> of course it is. we all know it is a political move. >> the point i've been making all morning is the president before this -- 30 in the hispanic vote over romney. doesn't that kind of tend to make that accusation fall flat? >> yeah, it does. there's probably no subgroup he's doing better. we were talking about u.s. bishops. they were talking about the dream act. i think in '08 they wanted this passed. they were just about to sign off on this and obama swooped in. this thing -- they wouldn't touch it. they wouldn't discuss it.
7:15 am
as they won't with virtually the entire democratic and obama agenda. if they're not going to do anything, like i said, the white house does have some options. so when they use the options you know, you can't freak out and pretend that obama undercut republicans. obstructionism. we've never seen anything like it. you can't sort of whine when people go around it eventually. >> stephanie: all right. eric boehlert remains in the sidecar. we continue from right-wing world. the supreme court rulings will not be on immigration or healthcare today. >> exactly. jack is i says they probably weren't going to do it anyway because the president is out of the country in los cabos mexico. >> stephanie: how nice. 17 minutes after the hour right back on "the stephanie miller show." >> that happens and we all let it happen. >> announcer: it's "the stephanie miller show."

7:21 am
>> but yeah, it is interesting -- and then you have krum earlier saying this is an illegal act. so it just sort of highlights how radical some of the rhetoric gets when people like bill crystal will take a couple of steps back and say you know, this kind of makes sense. >> stephanie: i know. yet they don't want to give the president any credit. they have to say -- he supported everything the bush administration did. we were talking last hour about gonzalez. he says the president may have violated his oath of office. excuse me? >> this coming from alberto gonzalez. >> the torture czar. >> stephanie: all right. matt lewis of "the daily caller" on cnn defending the guy who heckled the president. >> he's an irish immigrant. he was at "national journal" for a decade. first of all, we should be aggressive when asking questions. there was going to be no question and answer.

before you ask that question is this is the right thing to do for the american people. i didn't ask for an argument. i'm answering your question. it is the right thing to do for the american people and here'sú why. >> there wasn't a microphone trained on him. do we know the exact nature of what monroe was saying? >> he was saying things like why are you letting foreigners in and how is it going to affect unemployment? but hey matt lewis says monroe is an irish immigrant. that makes everything okay. what was that? what was that about? >> stephanie: wow. eric, i keep saying -- >> he's not a mexican immigrant. >> stephanie: i try not to cry racism but i think at this point you cannot say there has not been unprecedented disrespect shown to this president whether you yelling you lie or sticking a finger in his face or this -- >> or mark calling him a dick and glenn beck calling him a racist and last week in "the new york times," they referred
7:24 am
to him as a crybaby. there does seem to be something going on here that we haven't seen before and yeah -- made the point over the weekend he does think it is because you know, obama is black and he's being treated that way. >> it is not time to interrupt your speech. >> who do you think you are? >> stephanie: there's always code for uppity, i think. >> you know what's interesting is no one asked carlson from "the daily caller" or monroe -- i would like to know how many times monroe talked to the romney campaign before the event. has he been in constant contact? we know the romney campaign now condones heckling. they sent their own people to heckle david axelrod at an event. i would be fascinated to know how many times they talked to the romney campaign before monroe went over and heckled obama because daily caller is not a news organization. it is a -- it is a partisan, political outlet.
7:25 am

8:48 am
announcement on immigration? i just thought it was a the right thing to do much like his stance on marriage equality and it made mittens look more in. the authentic than he already is. he was saying he's not against the dream act. now he will avoid it. i enjoyed the press conference very much. i want to say that tucker carlson is the real journalism what tucker carlson is to "dancing with the stars." the dream act is an amnesty. if you think it is an amnesty you're thinking about what ronald reagan did. if you think this is amnesty and if you're angry about the dream act, you right-wingers have to take down the ronald reagan love dolls. that's exactly what the president did. this is a sinister plot of the president to allow babies who want to grow up and work and pay taxes to stay in this country and that's all it is. >> stephanie: we were saying first of all to say it is political during political season duh! >> of course it is. >> stephanie: number two, he was already ahead by 30 some
8:49 am
points along latino voters. he did this because of the unprecedented obstructionism and it is the right thing to do. the other thing is it makes mitt romney have to do that awful awkward pivot because he literally was the most far right on immigration in the republican primary, wasn't he? >> you're right. it makes mitt romney look like an awkward white man trying to dance at a show. of course it is political. the republicans are saying it is political. you know what bush did for seven years? he hiked up the military alert level to orange which was not positive for anybody. this is positive for so many people. it will be good for economies. it will be good for jobs. it is going to have more people paying taxes in america. and you know, in you want to be against this, again, you have to be against ronald reagan because he gave real amnesty. i'm really glad the president did it. i want to see monroe get deported to rierld for that --
8:50 am
to ireland for that job he took. >> stephanie: favorite right wing implosion over the president's announcement on friday. representative alan west. from florida. he alleges new obama policy on dreamers is a voter fraud conspiracy. he says this is one of those back door opportunities to allow people for the next five months to get the opportunity to vote. why is it being done now? do you really get a sense of what the american people feel. the dream act has been up for for debate for over a decade. some version has been introduced since 2001 and despite his insistence by the american people have not been heard polls show most americans support the dream act which goes further than president obama's executive order that he just -- >> which only proves they've been duped. >> you cannot win the white house without 40% of the latino vote. so game on, mitt. it will be an interesting thing what rubio does right now. >> stephanie: to me, is that the most offensive thing? we've got a hispanic guy that has some -- that's not too
8:51 am
ham-handed, is it? >> >> stephanie: did you hear about the rnc latino web site has pictures of asian kids on it. >> beautiful. >> it is labeled as asian in the stock photo. it is labeled as asian. >> mitt wants you to know he's in touch with the latino community and he cares about all hispanics. you're going to see marco rubio talk about how he's prodream act just like bush is to bush economics. we're seeing christie making a play. he thinks he has a shot at being vice president. i don't think you can have two northeastern moderates on the same republican ticket and hope to win. chris christie thinks he has a shot? he believes in climate change, gun control obama's education program, he doesn't hate muslims or illegals and he doesn't -- you know, it is like chris meet the tea party they'll love you. >> stephanie: i've been reading a lot about trying to go
8:52 am
for the youth vote with rubio or paul ryan. what about that whole campaign against the president's inexperience? really? >> that was a sarah palin argument don't. they don't have any ideology. it is about what has the job. they're going to stop believing what they believed last year. it is really, really sad. mitt romney is a true etch-a-sketch. he has no core values. all of my republican friends who spent the season hating this guy are doing what ann has to do, fake it for mitt. faking it for mitt. >> stephanie: you said etch-a-sketch. if only someone could have caught a romney campaign saying something like that. oh, someone did. john fuglesang did. my friend trish who makes that noise every time i say your name, she gave me a small etch-a-sketch to give you. i didn't have the heart to tell her that you get 27 of those.
8:53 am
>> it happened the other night in minneapolis after my show. it happened in boston with sexy liberal. i'm glad i can be part of ohio art's stock surge. >> stephanie: are you a one-man stimulus john fuglesang. i mean that in every sort of dirty way possible. we'll see you tonight on current and we'll see you on the show every day this week to talk about what you're doing. >> one more thing about my time at cnn. i had the honor six weeks ago to rodney king. he had all of the demons that were related to his addiction. he asked for forgiveness and he gave forgiveness in his life. he was uncommonly gracious and gentle man. >> stephanie: out of time, honey. we'll see you tomorrow on the show. see you tomorrow on "the stephanie miller show."
