's the focus. we want to focus on solutions and ways of bringing people together. that's the only way we're going to solve the world's great vexing problems. >>(narrator) the gavin newsom show friday at 11 eastern/8 pacific on current tv.
7:19 am
>> announcer: stephanie miller. ♪ escapade, we'll have a good time ♪ ♪ escapade, leave your worries behind ♪ ♪ escapade, you could be mine ♪ ♪ escapade, an escapade ♪ >> stephanie: yeah. it is "the stephanie miller show." 21 minutes after the hour. 1-800-steph-12 the phone number. eric boehlert rejoins us from media matters to finish up right-wing world. gretchen carlson, oh boy this is the -- i guess they got the fax from the romney camp. whatever happened to hope and change. it is all the president's fault. >> a lot of the criticism against this president is he hasn't been a unifying president and what people have been disappointed about he set himself up to be a unifying president. that's where the disappointment falls. when you heard about the logo of the campaign about hope and change and unification fits into that and inspiration fits into that. that's where some people are upset now. >> you know what would help?
7:20 am
if the republican congress would actually do something and get off their ass! >> stephanie: they've been so helpful, eric. there is the president stubborn. >> particularly ironic for this outlet to be complaining about people not unifying behind obama. look for inauguration day on, the entire conservative apparatus and particularly the media only goal was to obstruct and attack obama and now four years later, they're going to say boy he wasn't able to unify the country. every new president, whether you know george bush who passed the education bush for bill -- for bush democrats, the tax bill for bush in 2001. every new president who comes in got some cooperation from the opposition party except barack obama. and so yeah, come on. four years later you're going to complain about how your side was so effective and not cooperating with obama and blame
7:21 am
him? it is the bipartisan trap. obama's to blame for lack of bipartisanship because the other side didn't give it to him. >> stephanie: yep. clayton morris on fox and friends weekend. well, mitt romney got exactly what's wanted from his speech at the naacp. people saying things like this. >> the naacp supposed to be a nonpartisan civil rights icon, prides itself on being fair and promoting free speech. but this audience in this week's convention booed mitt romney. the reaction of the booing has many people wondering if the naacp no longer a civil rights organization. >> some people say. >> stephanie: some people say. look at all of the angry black people. >> virtually every clip we play from fox particularly in the morning as some people say -- it is just this closed loop. mitt romney got applause line after applause line at the naacp speech when he talked about obama care and repealing it and you're talking to people who support it, what do you think they're going to do. they were incredibly courteous throughout his speech.
7:22 am
as they should be when a presidential -- you know, candidate comes in there. this idea that they were running him out of the room or being uncivil is ridiculous. >> stephanie: exactly why he did it. he knew they were going to boo. >> certainly some thought that he was being -- he thought they were going to be super tricky. it was going to come out as a home run for him. but in general being booed by a group by the naacp does not -- is not a great idea. >> we should call them uncivil rights. >> stephanie: it is uncivil. but i mean you're absolutely right, eric. they disagreed when he got to the part about affordable care, that's what they disagreed with. >> in our's not allowed to disagree. >> that is free speech. as the romney camp pointed out he got a standing ovation. the critics try to portray this as some sort of mob that was rushing the stage. it wasn't. >> stephanie: they were all black panthers is what i heard. rish limbaugh to finish up.
7:23 am
>> the driving force behind these improvements was the rigorous new federal work requirements contained in welfare reform. half of the welfare caseload dropped in four years. it worked. obama can't abide that. we don't want people off of welfare in this regime. we don't want people leaving the welfare rolls. voters that are getting away -- we want more people on the welfare rolls. we're going toed a tries food stamp parties. >> stephanie: wow! it is like romney saying if you want free stuff vote for the other guy. first, how weaselly is that that he waits until he's not in front of the naacp to say something obviously inherently racist. >> there are sure a lot of welfare queens and cadillacs out here. >> limbaugh's talking about if you take a step back is this constant conversation, the conservatives are having in the media about what obama is doing.
7:24 am
he's trying to lure as many people to be dependent on the governor, poor people and minorities and that's all part of this very un-american agenda that he had to sort of create this army of poor people who are dependent on the government to live therefore they vote democratic. i swear this is what they talk about every day and they're 100% serious. that's how they view this centrist democrat administration. >> stephanie: yep. absolutely. eric, great stuff as always. we'll see you next week. >> all right bye-bye. [ applause ] >> stephanie: that kept popping in my head that we're back to welfare queens. jerry in mississippi. you're on "the stephanie miller show." hi jerry. >> caller: hey, how you doing? >> stephanie: good. >> caller: one of your top boyfriends. >> stephanie: yummy yummy. danger, danger when you taste brown sugar. >> caller: i would like to comment on the five on fox. they're systemically trying to
7:25 am
give bob a heart attack. >> stephanie: is that what they're doing? >> caller: yes. they have a dunderhead sitting next to them, a supermodel that probably passed a law degree through online classes. the woman who worked for bush in an unfunny greg who thinks he's funny but he's not. >> he laughs at his own really unfunny jokes which makes it worse. >> stephanie: even less funny. >> caller: nice talking to you. hope to see you in jackson. >> stephanie: when am i going to jackson? apparently i wasn't told. denise in raleigh north carolina. hi, denise welcome. >> caller: stephanie i want to see the tax returns more than i want to see him. i've seen an episode of george jefferson once. he had a client who was so rich that he didn't pay taxes. >> stephanie: that's what we're wondering. what is in there? it's gotta be bad.
7:26 am
>> caller: i want to see it for myself. there are actually people who don't pay taxes? show me how you do it! >> stephanie: i mean -- >> caller: get off welfare. >> stephanie: cracking herself up. >> if all of your income is from dividends -- >> stephanie: the fact that -- all of the lies the romney camp tells, oh, he doesn't have his money in the caymans or bermuda he doesn't get any tax benefit. what? why is it there then? >> stephanie: exactly. that's the whole point of that. is that what the swiss bank accounts are for? >> like cheese. and chocolate. >> stephanie: look out everybody. we got us a turk, a young one. hooked a young one. i did. >> embryonic turk. >> mike la sure joins us next on "the stephanie miller show."
7:27 am
very, very excited about that and very proud of that. >>beltway politics from inside the loop. >>we tackle the big issues here in our nation's capital, around the country and around the globe. >>dc columnist and four time emmy winner bill press opens current's morning news block. >>we'll do our best to carry the flag from 6 to 9 every morning. >>liberal and proud of it.

7:31 am
♪ >> i've come to accept i have the body of a post-menopausal senior woman. i do. i'm at peace with it. >> this is "the stephanie miller show". now, with stephanie. from stephanie miller. >> stephanie: i was schooling our intern in the radio business. it is important to be at the microphone when the red light goes on. >> oh, wait, i'm on. >> stephanie: okay. 34 minutes after the hour. 1-800-steph-12. a little casual around here. >> a little bit. >> stephanie: 1-866-55-press toll free from anywhere. you know, we love us some turks. that's the one thing we know. >> we do. >> stephanie: i sometimes get to go on and i'm like the adult
7:32 am
supervision. i'm an old turk. [ ding ding ] >> stephanie: they need some geriatric turks. >> michael shure joins us now. >> i always feel like the oldest turk out there. it is good to know someone shares that with me. >> stephanie: you just invite me for someone wearing support hose once in awhile. michael, i'm sure you guys are talking about this as well. we've all talked about and follow politics for a long time. boy, this bain stuff is not only hurting him, it is gettingbers by the day isn't if? >> that's the most surprising part of this. we knew bain hurt him in the primaries. it didn't hurt him enough to keep him out of the nomination but it hurt him in south carolina. newt gingrich unleashed it but he unleashed it in a short media frenzy. in a primary, you don't have time for things to flush out. and man look what's happening
7:33 am
now. every day there's something new and every day it is sticking. you know what's interesting about this? i don't think people really understand sort of the intricacies of it. however, they really see that there's something dupe liss us to that this guy did. >> stephanie: michael, i was making the analogy as a woman woman who have had their husband or boyfriend come home and they're hiding a cocktail napkin and keep saying you don't need to see that. there's nothing in there. >> that's exactly right. you don't need the napkin. that's what this is. >> stephanie: speaking of media frenzy, he doesn't do interviews anywhere. he does five aggressively going after this story and yet this is all he said. here's mitt romney. >> romney: the president's campaign has been i think outrageous in making the kind of charges they have. kinds of attacks are beneath the dignity of the presidency. >> stephanie: why i never! >> because i'm not releasing my tax returns.
7:34 am
>> this is a guy who gave money to the swift vote veterans. >> stephanie: it was hilarious. that's all it was was like this bluster. how dare you! >> not to mention they were all five on the same day and they were all on a friday evening. if you're going to bury anything, you're going to -- do them every day and do them every day for a week. the hiding continues. there's something that this guy isn't telling us. and the funny thing is as with -- historically in politics with precedent if you tell -- you get away with it. if you say you did this, then you get by or you step out for a little while. he must be hiding something really big. >> stephanie: i know. i know! that's the thing is that he basically -- i love the president's reaction. he's like mmm nah. apologize, no. this is what he's running on! he's running on his business career. >> it's true. i think that there's more to what you're saying about the president, too.
7:35 am
because democrats in the past, all they've done, they would have apologized, you know. >> stephanie: right. >> i think there's something different. i was looking at this ad, i don't know if you have talked about it? >> stephanie: isn't it awesome? >> it is. awesome. i tweeted last night. some old g.o.p. hack had to have done this ad. i don't know where the democrats have been forever but this does not feel like a democratic -- >> you're right. >> it is such a good ad. >> stephanie: there's the president this weekend in the rain. >> that, too. >> getting out in the rain. >> stephanie: can you imagine people waiting in a downpour to listen to mitt romney talk? these people are still rapturous. here is the president. >> obama: we won't be apologizing. sometimes these games are played during political campaigns. understand what the issue is here. mr. romney claims that he's mr. fix it for the economy because of his business experience. and so i think voters entirely
7:36 am
legitimately -- what exactly was that business experience? >> stephanie: very helpful supplying the information michael. >> you know what? mitt with all of the bain stuff and all of these distractions from the economy and the jobs and everything, mitt romney still holds that one ship that he can change the conversation just by naming a running mate. and then we're going to stop talking about bain for awhile. and that's the thing -- you know, the timing of all of this is so interesting too. let's say he comes out and names a vice presidential running mate on thursday. you won't talk about bain probably for quite awhile. you won't hear about it. you might be talking about it. we might be talking about it. people will be listening and looking into the vice presidential run. >> michael, where is your sense of where he's going with that? the vice presidential pick? >> like anybody else, it is a guessing game. i've sort of dark horsed john thune for awhile. i think mitt romney likes hanging out with people that are a lot like mitt romney. >> stephanie: ya think? >> i think is a comfort level.
7:37 am
i don't think he's looking to make a palinesque splash. we called it a quayle mistake but they won! i think he's looking for something safe as he always does. i think that john thune rob portman, that sort of profile fits what mitt romney wants. >> stephanie: that's some vetting getting more boring. >> that's really difficult. >> but he needs somebody -- you know, i said this to vouch for him among conservatives and those guys kind of do. but you're right. he can outdull himself which i guess to make himself look exciting. there is the other side of that. >> stephanie: is this -- one of the worst campaigns ever in your opinion? i'm looking at two headlines. bain press release claims ceo romney is on part-time leave to run olympics. it was not part-time. >> it was not. you know, one of the worst campaigns -- they're all bad. i don't think it is the worst than the swift vote veterans. i don't think it's worse than
7:38 am
the dirty tactics there and then you go back to mike duke dukakis with thely horton stuff. i remember that. that's how hold a turk i am. every year it seems dirty and horrible and the worst one we've ever seen. this is a bad one. >> stephanie: mike i don't even mean bad in terms of dirty politics. i'm talking about incompetent. two weeks ago, we we had a tax, it is a mandate. it is my mother, my sister. >> for sure, this is uncharacteristically poorly run g.o.p. campaign. and romney's not a very good candidate. i was at the naacp convention last week and i heard him speak and forgetting that he was booed and forgetting whatever tactics may have been at play there the guy isn't very good either. and listen, he was in the lines and he wasn't talking to his audience. but he could have been talking to -- there's no zero connection there. you can tell the republicans aren't excited about him. >> stephanie: it is just a
7:39 am
drip drip -- it seems to get worse every day. the headline right now romney interviewed directly contradicts his bain tenure. he told cbs he didn't attend bain meetings after he left the company but this answer appears to contradict sworn testimony he delivered in 2002 as part of a hearing to determine his residency for the governorship. in 2002, he said there are a number of social trips and business trips romney back to massachusetts board meetings thanksgiving and so forth. "the boston globe" reports that he has declined to comment on the record about whether the business trips were related to bain capital. clearly they were. >> there are quotation marks around "sworn" and "continue." >> i love board meetings, thanksgiving and so forth. >> stephanie: that's what they call thanksgiving at the romney household. >> that's true. b-o-r-e-d. >> stephanie: here we go. he could absolutely as stephanie cutter and others have said,
7:40 am
just released the board meetings the minutes of the meetings, release the tax returns. there has got to be -- it clearly has got to be worse to release them than not to, right? >> i would think so. listen, he's probably doing his vice presidential vetting process and asking these guys and women to release their taxes to them. as part of the vetting process. >> stephanie: the arrogance is breathtaking. harry reid said you couldn't get confirmed dogcatcher. how does he think? really? >> that's exactly right. the arrogance, it is all about the arrogance. that's what makes -- has made even republicans during the primaries and voters now just feel such a distance from mitt romney. you hit it on the head, steph. it is arrogance. and i think in the long run americans don't love arrogance. >> stephanie: yeah. and again now he's on record, this is from friday night. unequivocally saying this. >> in february of 1999, i left bain capital and left all management authority and
7:41 am
responsibility for the firm. had no on-going activity or involvement in the affairs of bain capital. >> stephanie: so which is it? did he lie to the s.e.c. is your hunch or is he lying now? >> i think he's lying now. >> too. >> that's what i think. i think he feels like he has to be something that he frankly doesn't have to be. that's what -- it is always so incredible about these guys. few people do it before them. they're such precedent for behaving in a different way. and so he has seen what happened to people who have lied to the public before and yet here he comes out and he's doing it again. what's his defense? the projection defense which is to call president obama a liar. >> stephanie: you know, meanwhile, his signature is on there in six places or something over the last years. >> exactly. it is like going back to your analogy, it is coming on with the cocktail napkin saying you were out late last week, too. >> stephanie: at this point, we're in a full-on scuffle on the floor trying to grab the
7:42 am
napkin. all right i'm not kidding! give me that. i see lipstick!

8:03 am
important bill. a lot of people have been trying to figure out how to address the egregious decision that led citizens united. >> corporations. >> stephanie: senator jeff merkley joins us now to talk about the disclose act. good morning senator. >> good morning, stephanie. it is good to be with you. >> stephanie: i always love the second half of every sentence and why the g.o.p. is expected to block this bill. >> yes. >> stephanie: here we go again. >> it is crazy that that's the case because during the whole mccain/feingold debate virtually every single member of the senate argued for disclosure. that was the sunlight. that was the disinfectant, the right thing for americans to be able to judge this source of the campaign ads. but suddenly when they actually are voting, it is a different story. >> stephanie: this again, i don't know your take on it, senator, more evidence how far right the republican party has moved or what? mccain says he won't endorse this. this is john mccain. i believe your colleague senator whitehouse said that they're
8:04 am
going to move ahead without john mccain who is seen as the father of modern reform, right? >> i think they've been seduced by big money. it is a major artery of funds the amount of secret money that has poured into the republican side is just shockingly large. they know they benefit from it and suddenly comes down to brass knuckle politics for them and principle. >> stephanie: here we go again where you're the same -- mccain won't endorse it until it has favorable treatment for prodemocratic unions. he says the requirement on organizations spending more than $10,000 to disclose the replies to corporations and unions alike. who are we kidding pretending they have anywhere near as much money as the corporations. >> exactly the same for everyone. when a group donates more than $10,000, they have disclose. when an individual does more than $10,000. certainly, it is the case that
8:05 am
when individuals are donating $20, their name is kind of irrelevant because it is such a small amount but if compiled it becomes a very large amount, that's important for people to know and the bill covers that. >> stephanie: what kind of influence can you buy for $20 these days? >> you know, at that point the point has been well taken in the past that requiring huge amounts of paperwork when you're donating small supplement is an impediment to expression and free speech. when huge chunks of cash are dropping in like air bombs people need to know where that money comes from. it is not one person buying 0.3 seconds of airtime. it is one person buying hours of airtime or several large donors buying up the entire airwaves in a campaign. >> stephanie: senator this sounds simple to me. the disclose act is simply that.
8:06 am
requiring public disclosure of all people donating more than $10,000. >> we stripped it down to the bare roots. we've taken out the part that required names to be on the ads themselves which i'm a big proponent of. not only reporting in a very timely fashion but i also think the name of the biggest donors should be on the ad. this is the simplest, most straightforward version if you are a big donor people need to know where the money is coming from. >> stephanie: yep. i wish you luck with it. i know like you say you've tried to address every republican concerned but at some point, you know it becomes fairly transparent right they don't care because as you said, it is such a big artery of money for them. >> it is becoming very clear. if you want to boil it down, this is about the first three words of the constitution. first three words are "we the people" and they want to cross out people and put in powerful. >> right. >> it is what the supreme court majority did in citizens united. it is what they did in rejecting
8:07 am
the montana appeal, the montana -- here we were having their 100th anniversary of the bill that took the copper kings out of the process in montana because they basically had brought up the state and so the gift the supreme court gave them was we are not even going to listen to your state history. we're not going to listen to your stories about the impact of money. we're just going to turn you down even though the issues you're raising are far different than the ones in citizens united. it was -- it was so shocking for the supreme court to put their hands over their eyes and their ears and saying no thanks. we don't want to know anything about the facts. >> stephanie: yeah. speak of sunlight being the best disinfectant. i have to get your take on the bain capital stuff and tax returns. how is it possible, you know in the american sense of fairness that any nominee the president puts forward has to release tax returns. >> this is kind of bizarre isn't it, because what we do know is that he sends his money
8:08 am
to bermuda. we know he sends it to secret wisconsin bank accounts and he only wants to release one year of his record. who knows what else is in there. but clearly it's not stuff he wants the american public to know about. that should give everyone concern. >> stephanie: i think the arrogance of it to me is breathtaking. that he's demanding transparency of the obama administration. you would demand that for anybody being confirmed by the senate right? >> yes. it tells you he's lot to lose if he lets people know what kind of world he's lived in. and what kind of tax he's used to avoid american taxes. i think the average individual is going to look at his record, should he ever release the returns which i don't think he will. they'll say you know what? this is somebody who is a tax dodger. they didn't do their part even under the very generous laws we've had for the powerful over recent years. >> stephanie: there is a fine line there too, isn't there senator where just because something is legal doesn't mean it's right.
8:09 am
if you're going to run on investing in america and you invested all of your money overseas. i think that that's a relevant conversation, don't you? >> absolutely. there are a lot of tax shelters that are marginal legality and many of them have been shut down and he may not want folks to know about that. he had to -- maybe he had to rewrite his taxes because he did tax shelters that didn't stand up. but on the other hand, just the fact that he exploited every opportunity of that nature is something for people to be able to consider and judging whether that's the character, whether that's the committed american to the person working to make america stronger that they want to lead this nation. >> stephanie: absolutely. the disclosed that coming to the floor this week on the senate? >> well, it is indeed. we're going to be on it tonight. we're planning to go all night and i encourage folks to tune in on c-span. we have also a petition about a quarter million folks sign up. i encourage folks to go to that. they can follow all of this
