if you have copd like i do you know how hard it can be to breathe and what that feels like. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open a full 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. and it's steroid-free. spiriva does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms.
tell your doctor if you have kidney problems glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens your throat or tongue swells you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. does breathing with copd weigh you down? ask your doctor if spiriva can help. (vo) cenk uygur is many things. >>oh really? >>tax cuts don't create jobs. the golden years as the conservatives call them, we had the highest tax rates, and the highest amount of growth, and the highest amount of jobs. those are facts. >>"if you ever raise taxes on the rich, you're going to destroy our economy."

there we go. >> stephanie: they must have heard the parade on stage at the pantages. we must talk to her immediately. let's talk to rude. >> the rude pundit. good morning rudeness. >> good morning. >> stephanie: jim was just -- i don't know when this was but where was this latest mitt romney gaffe? he asked some women in philadelphia? >> pittsburgh. >> why are you cooking in the kitchen? words to that effect. >> really? >> stephanie: there you go. he locked down that chick vote again. >> this is not to mentionú insulting the palestinians this morning. >> he did? >> stephanie: what happened? >> let's see. he was speaking at the fund-raiser for jewish donors in jerusalem, sheldon adelson by his side -- >> of course. >> hand up mitt's ass as we know.
and romney said you come here, you see the gdp per capita in israel which is about $21,000 and compare that with the gdp per capita across areas managed by the palestinian authority which is more like $10,000 per capita you note a stark difference in economic vitality. without noting of course the severe sanctions on the palestinians might be hindering some of their beneficial wealth and the ddp. >> stephanie: he doesn't care about the very poor. maybe he didn't get the memo. >> oh, god, that's just stunning foreign policy. >> only he could go and talk about numbers. just financial stuff. >> those stinky people over there have much less money. >> he compared it to the united states and mexico. >> stephanie: oh, yeah. >> because of all of the sanctions we have against the mexicans. >> oh, my gosh. >> stephanie: jim, i was looking for the next gaffe. romney visits the western wall.
met by a rabbi. a don't tell the joke, a rabbi and a mormon. >> stephanie: he chatted with him. >> before he tried to convert him? >> baptize him into his own religion. >> stephanie: if you die soon, i could help you find a better religion. >> you're looking kind of peeked. >> he went on this tour of israel with his wealthy jewish donors. again, sheldon adel son by his side as they go to the wailing wall. >> stephanie: there is a solution. >> sheldon is famous for saying he wished he hadn't fought for the american army and fought for israel instead. why doesn't he just stay there and stop screwing up our country. >> it is not like there's any tax money we're getting from him. >> stephanie: exactly. he was doing the thing you take a slip of paper and put a note in the wall.
he bowed and prayed for about 20 seconds. if only i could see what was in the thought bubble, jim probably that. >> just a thought bubble. >> i don't want to know what he wrote on the paper. >> something like that. >> what the heck was that? >> probably but 100 in there and said don't worry i'll take care of you. >> stephanie: we're looking forward to poland, aren't you? god knows what will happen in poland. >> i think he knows so many polish jokes they're hilarious. >> the first time he sees a light bulb, he just can't help himself. [ laughter ] >> you pollocks aren't as stupid as i've heard. [ crickets chirping ] what did i say? you're not that dumb. i'll say something like your trees are all the right height, i can see why hitler invaded. [ crickets chirping ] >> he'll talk about despite all of the things that happened in auschwitz, it was a very
productive camp. [ wah wah ] >> they produced. >> i'm jewish, i can make jewish jokes, just want to put that out there. >> stephanie: great piece on michelle walkman. when is she not on a witch-hunt. when the dynamic duo of republican [ bleep ] representative michele bachmann and louie gohmert work together on an issue. he was one of the people what signed on to this ridiculous muslim brotherhood -- [ whatever! ] >> exactly. she's just always -- you know, we go back to 2008 with the let's see -- the media should look at congress and come up with a list of pro and anti-american list of congress. going back to 2005 when she was a state representative and -- in minnesota and she wanted to get the dade horowitz's academic bill of rights passed as law in minnesota where it prevented
college professors from bringing their political views into the classroom. because you know, evil liberal professors were obviously turning everybody in her district liberal. >> stephanie: yes of course. by the way, you were talking about the romney campaign strategy. i love one of your lines. in 2008, apparently you weren't wisely rejecting the policies that romney advocates. the marks of a socialist con artist. vote for romney because he thinks you're stupid. you've got it wrong with this black guy. >> exactly. that's the thing. it is to the point where it is like insulting you for having dared put this man in power. it wasn't that -- you know, he said he was going to do most of the things he's doing right now or actually the stuff he said he was going to do. so maybe we made a wise choice. no. we're idiots. we're all idiots, especially the ones that are now switching over to -- or doubting obama. >> stephanie: yeah. >> thinking of not voting for him or voting for romney.
>> stephanie: sorry. pause for a shiver up the back of our spines. i think that it is interesting -- what's considered negative campaigning because to me, the stuff about romney, it is all fair game. when you're running on your record whether it is businessman or governor, how is it not fair game? >> there's been a lot of comparison in the media between obama's line taken out of context if you have a business, you didn't build that. that lie that we know is a lie. >> actually elizabeth warren's speech. >> it was, in fact a mitt romney speech, too. but it was also -- but i've seen comparisons between that and when they're trying to create a balance in the media between when the obama campaign jumped on romney's -- i like firing people who provide me
services -- and i thought that's not really a fair comparison because what romney is talking about is firing people. >> stephanie: so it seems like -- some area of fair game. >> so it is not really out of context if he's actually talking about firing people. >> exactly. >> stephanie: and then i thought wow, so he has this whole string of gaffes in england. speaking of the selection being about the top 1%. he meets with the crooks behind the libor scandal. a fund-raising reception exclusive dinner with rubbing elbows with the bankers pretty much all behind the country's libor scandal. netted $2 million. >> of course. i'm sure they have some carrying around cash, the libor guys. >> stephanie: the last line says the times reporter steered clear of the libor scandal over interest remarks at the event. >> no one will remind them about how they brought down the world
economy. you don't want to do that. >> stephanie: that's bad form when they're handing you $2 million. >> really bad form there. >> stephanie: all right. rudeness great stuff. see you next week, honey. >> bye. >> stephanie: had to break early because the white house called. >> the obama campaign. i don't know if she's calling from the white house. the actual house called us. >> stephanie: all right. >> drunk dialing us. >> stephanie: 43 minutes after the hour. right back on "the stephanie miller show." >> it is like a meeting with fart jokes. it is "the stephanie miller show." public, they're losing out here. >>it's the place where democracy is supposed to be the great equalizer, where your vote

♪ shake it up ♪ >> stephanie: it is "the stephanie miller show." 47 minutes after the hour. 1-800-steph-12 the phone number toll free from anywhere. michelle is the top advisor -- one of the top advisors to the obama campaign. she joins us now. good morning michelle. >> good morning, stephanie. >> stephanie: did you script mitt romney's campaign, his tour overseas? is he working for the obama white house? >> i'm afraid we can't take credit for that. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: i literally am like is he working for the obama campaign? that could not have gone much worse, could it? >> it has been pretty rocky. for a trip that was designed to showcase romney as someone who could lead on the world stage it has gone sort of wrong from the beginning you know. in london, he openly criticized or doubted the readiness of the british olympics and drew a
rebuke directly from prime minister cameron, the london mayor. >> stephanie: directly from pretty much everyone in the entire country. >> the british tabloids were pretty ruthless. in israel, he focused on fund-raisers and political statements as opposed to really laying out you know, his vision for the relationship where when pressed, there's really not a lot of difference. the obama administration has had an incredibly strong record in support of israel's security. and so you know, for a trip that was supposed to highlight him on the world stage i think what it has done -- >> stephanie: oh, it has. >> it raises questions is this guy really ready to represent the united states and the world to be commander in chief? >> stephanie: well that's exactly it. the reason candidates do the trips overseas is to try to show they're ready to lead on the world stage. it really was almost -- when you have people like karl rove shaking their heads on tv, you
know it is bad right? >> it is. especially when you contrast it with then senator obama's trip in 2008. i mean first of all, it was very substantive. at every stop, he gave a substantive foreign policy speech being very careful not to openly criticize the administration but laying out a detailed vision for the american people of where he wanted to take the u.s. leadership in the world and what policies he would put in place. he also, i think importantly took the time to visit american troops who were deployed abroad. he went to iraq and kuwait, afghanistan. he sat down with troops, understanding that part of his role, if elected president would be stewardship of the military. as commander in chief. it is really striking that romney has not chosen to actually go to take the time to go visit with troops in afghanistan. >> stephanie: michele 200,000 people in berlin for the
widely -- for the speech. that the president obama gave. i was just thinking that. boy, that contrast is pretty stunning. you brought up that you know, he's over there with sheldon adelson and his fund-raisers in israel. we were saying first of all he has a romney adviser says the president is not anglo-saxon enough sheldon adelson is on record as saying i wore the uniform of the united states unfortunately. i wish i had been in the israeli army. do you hear that in the press anywhere? >> yes. the romney campaign has denied this comment about anglo-saxon tradition but the telegraph, the london telegraph that reported it has stood behind this and said look, this was a romney advisor. he basically bordered on a slur against the president. he said we understand the anglo-saxon heritage. we -- the white house doesn't understand the history of the special relationship.
sort of implying somehow the president -- you know, doesn't understand the special relationship with britain. i think again the president's record speaks for itself. hen such a leader for this country on security and foreign policy. and you know while everybody talks about this election being about the economy and it certainly is, people have to remember that big foreign policy decisions like the decision to go -- that george bush made to go to war in iraq have huge economic implications. the iraq war drove so much of the accumulated debt in bush's eight years. >> stephanie: and not putting them on the books, "men in black iiiel." that and the bush tax cuts, almost entirely responsible for this deficit right? >> yes. so i would hope that people would weigh, as they go to the polling -- the voting booths, what kind of commander in chief will this person be? where will he take this country
in terms of foreign policy, committing our troops and so forth because that, too will have implications not only for our security but also for our economic health. >> stephanie: michelle, i think that's a cogent point. the fact is he's over there with sheldon adelson who is on record as advocating for war with iran. can you imagine if a top -- fund-raiser of the president said i wore the uniform of the american army unfortunately. can you imagine? >> it is appalling. >> i wish i had for the japanese. >> stephanie: it is stunning. romney almost on every subject -- what does that mean? >> the problem is we don't know. he said, for example on israel, i would just do the opposite of what president obama did. look what president obama's done. he's brought assistance to israel to historic highs.
he has guaranteed their qual tative military edge. he stood up for them in the u.n. when the palestinians tried to bypass the peace process and impose statehood. he ordered the rescue of israeli diplomats who are under siege in cairo. time and time again he's stood by our commitment to israel security. so when romney says he's going to do the opposite, what does that mean? when you press him he can't say. >> stephanie: take afghanistan for instance. it is like he's been all over the place. what is his plan on afghanistan? >> he was initially for the transition time line and then he started criticizing it and was against it and then in the vfw speech last week he surprised us all by saying i support it. when pressed on what exactly would you do differently in afghanistan, you know, other than saying i would listen to the generals, you know, he doesn't have much else to say. so again, it is very hard to
know what he would do differently. the truth is the transition plan that we have put together in afghanistan has the support and the input of the commanding officers on the ground. it also has the support and input of 49 allies, nato and other who are participating in the international security force there. so this is a very well-developed well-vetted consensus position. >> stephanie: michelle, it almost seems like you're implying that mitt romney has been inconsistent on an issue. these outrageous. >> a few times. again, his incredible unwillingness to really lay out his vision. and exactly how his policies would differ from the president on national security. he's really not allowing the american people to you know, to understand his position and to make a judgment on whether he would be a good commander in
chief. >> you know, he was obviously over in israel, he said things like this which makes me a little bit nervous. >> it is my firm conviction that the security of israel is in the vital national security interest of the united states. >> stephanie: and yet his top advisers like john bolton and others are advocating for war with iran, correct? >> well again they have been very dell coase -- della coase in their rhetoric. they seem to apply they would be more willing at this point in time to use force with regard to iran's nuclear weapons program. the president has been very clear that our policies to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon, he's been very clear all options are on the table. but he's also been clear that now is not the time. that this -- that we need to give time and space to the sanctions which are the hardest hitting in the history of any country.
give time for them to work. a new round was put in place in july. those are starting to take effect. it is crip aming iran's economy. we want to see how that affects iran's calculus and whether they come back to the negotiating table with greater seriousness. because ultimately, it is in everybody's interest to solve this problem diplomatically if possible. but all options are on the table. the president has been very clear about that. >> stephanie: michelle, i was having a george w. bush flashback with mitt romney, a string of gaffes and bluster and all of this stuff. from the bush administration. >> it is true. when you look at his foreign policy advisers, 17 of the 24 who are listed on his campaign site were bush officials. and a lot of his rhetoric, when he does lay out a position is sort of harking back to the policies that we saw and i think in many cases failed in the bush administration.
>> stephanie: the bush years we all remember so warmly. michele, thank you for your time this morning. hope to talk to you again as the campaign rolls along. there she goes, michele flournoy >> he criticized islamic countries for voting in islamic leaders. >> stephanie: how dare they. >> mormon elders? >> stephanie: wow! is there anyone he hasn't pissed off this week?

then in the story itself that points out that those ratios five to one. that's without incorporating the karl rove super pac ad. romney has run an almost endlessly negative campaign. so why is the -- why is "the new york times" focusing on obama's negative campaign? >> stephanie: eric, as i've said over and over, i don't think all negative campaigning is the same. when you are running strictly on your record as a businessman as governor of a state how are those records not fair game? >> yeah, exactly. and you know i don't think anyone can point to obama campaign ads that are slashing and vicious and making stuff up. but based on the recent bill that controversy, we can point to republican ads that are based on blatant falsehoods. the press doesn't hold those two accountable. so you know, if obama isn't running halo ads he's
apparently this negative/attack campaign. that's always the double standard for democrats the republicans, the pelt way press -- the beltway press is in love with republican hardball. when democrats fight back, you know the press freaks out. >> stephanie: exactly. you and i talked about that last week with you and i calling it swiss voting of romney. swift vote was based on lies. this is -- you know, you may think it is -- you may not like it but it is based on facts. >> uncomfortable and pleasant questions about your professional past is not swift voting. it is not swift voting when it's true. >> stephanie: right. i love your -- you say kind of sums it up. "washington post," romney's problem, americans don't like him as much as obama polls say. i guess there's not that many ways to say that. >> there isn't. to the credits -- to its credit, "washington post" ran that piece but that really is what the press is trying to avoid. what you read the analysis over
and over again, it is obama versus obama. he's not going to get as many hispanic votes as 2008. he's not going to get as many jewish votes as 2008. he's not going to get as many young voters as 2008. he's not running against himself. he's running against another candidate who is having trouble getting people to vote for him and like him. but all of the analysis is because it is so much easier and lazar, obama versus obama and let's pretend he's not running against a weak republican candidate. >> stephanie: you're right. >> you can say it is close it's tied et cetera. >> stephanie: as you say the other thing is it is different running four years later as an incumbent. as he said on the trail, you can tell people this is still about hope and change. he didn't know he would run up against such unprecedented obstructionism. >> absolutely not. he was naive thinking i'll have dinner with these conservatives and we'll pass legislation like w. bush did in 2001.
wasn't going to happen. didn't happen. the idea that you know, democrats are supposed to sort of roll over and not fight back and not play tough during the campaign, it is one of the beltway press's favorite double standards, i think. >> stephanie: all you needed was one eric boehlert tweet to sum up romney in london. i thought london was supposed to be the easy part of the trip. poor mitt. really, we couldn't have scripted this better, could we? >> it was pretty amazing. when you're going on a trip for diplomatic purposes and your first couple of hours you make these sort of huge diplomatic gaffes, you know, it was definitely a problem and you know, he's recovered i think since then. but you know, this was supposed to be his great -- on a world stage. it didn't go as planned. >> stephanie: recovered by which he made it through an entire morning without a gaffe. eric, real quick.
this is so important. before we dye into right right-wing world. you didn't put in one fact. still missing from the aurora coverage. one violence contest. each year, roughly 30,000 americans die from gun violence or 300,000 over the last decade. it really is stunning that the press just kind of, as you said, they have taken the lazy nra mantra, guns don't kill people, people do. there's nothing more to see here. >> it's sad but the aurora coverage, the event got a lot of coverage and i think the ways the congresswoman getting shot got a lot of coverage. she was tied to congress. this was tied to hollywood. they were particularly gruesome events. in between that though, these random public mass shootings are very common. sadly common. and those are sort of treated as four six hour stories.
there's very rarely this idea that there is a connectivity to all of this and there is an epidemic in america. i looked in the wake of the aurora shooting to find out how many times was that very specific statistic 30,000 gun deaths a year reference. and it was basically invisible from the coverage. virtually the only place i could find reference to it were in opinion pieces about gun control. is it controversial? why is this -- why is that fact not inserted in news stories? 30,000 people die every year. >> stephanie: can you imagine any other cause would be getting more coverage. let's dive into the right-wing world. kimberly gill foil on hannity. >> this is a failing report card. if you're into that and you want america to fail and you don't like american exceptionalism, then by all means i respect your right to choose and vote. put him back in or if you would like someone who has solid business experience, business acumen, put in somebody like
romney, give him a chance. >> voice is annoying enough to begin with but then the stuff she says. >> stephanie: if you hate obama, vote for -- if you hate obama, vote for him. >> it is not that obama has disappointed. he's made us weak. he's trying to destroy america. why is he ahead in the polls why can't your guy win by 19 points? there is this huge disconnect between the right wing bubble where obama is a monster. he's a -- he hates america. he's a narcissist. he's a marxist. he's all of these awful things and then you take a step out of the bubble and oh, he's ahead in all of the swing states. oh people find him 20 points higher, more likable than romney. it really is this very dense bubble where they convince themselves he's this monster but i honestly don't know what they're going to do on election night if he wins because they've laid out the blueprint where not
only should he not win he should be in jail. >> i heard he's a communist, a natzy and a liberal. >> stephanie: brian kilmeade an opening shot against britain in case romney's president, you better back off. >> security question and that will -- the british press -- i think the british press better back off and so should the officials. this guy could be president. >> stephanie: yeah you better back off rupert murdoch's paper in britain. future president mitt romney. >> interesting knee-jerk reaction when romney got in trouble. we saw some right wing blogs. they started denouncing britain like they did during france. they will denounce anyone that comes into their territory. and so we saw a fair amount of u.k. bashing because they had the audacity to point out that
mitt romney put his foot in his mouth. it is this sort of almost vireel animal instinct. they'll lash out at anyone. even if it is america's closest ally. >> rupert murdoch criticizing him? which makes it doubly funny. >> stephanie: all right. eric bogert remains in the sidecar. we continue right-wing world on "the stephanie miller show." >> announcer: join the party. 1-800-steph-12.

right off the bat. his handlers had to grab him and you can't do this, you can't do that. the one thing that bothered me, i don't think anybody caught was when he went to israel. and he went to the wall to pray. when he stepped up to that wall and put his hand on it, he had a smirk on his face. >> eww. >> stephanie: that's what i'm saying. he was preemptively giggling about baptizing them into the mormon religion. he was preemptively smirking. >> one of the most somber places on earth. >> stephanie: george bush had the weird smirk that didn't match the occasion. >> romney should not be allowed to didn't to auschwitz. he will make some joke. >> i shudder to think of what the jokes will be about. >> romney: we should use every diplomatic and political vehicle available us to to keep iran from becoming a nuclear capability state. if all of the options fail, then we do have other options and we

on the front is the correct address. when you look at the registration card, it has a very old address on it. and it doesn't match my driver's license so i wanted to warn people to check the card, not just the -- whether it was intentional or not i'm not sure. >> stephanie: i'm going to guess this year it is intentional. you should check and double check everything. wore former florida g.o.p. chair says right wing crazies want to suppress the black vote. this is what happens when florida party chair greer testified in a lawsuit against his former partner that crazies want to suppress the black vote through tactics like current state governor rick scott's efforts to purge voter roles. said i was upset because the political consultants and staff are keeping blacks from voting.
he testified in a 635-page affidavit that spans two days of meetings with the republican party counsel. he claimed the fraud charges filed against him were part of an internal power scheming designed to push him and former governor be chris. he requires photo i.d.s preventing felons from voting and purging voter roles unconscionable. now we're seeing the backstage machinations behind all of this. greer resigned from the party in late 2009 signing a severance agreement that outlined a payment. they later took it back. anything i did at the republican party has been destroyed by these people. this is what happens when they turn on you right? and that's the thing.

to take back their congress from the nra because even the majority of gun owners want to have more limitations on some of the guns and it is just incredible that we don't have a congress anymore that listens to the people. >> stephanie: rick, we did a story last week, the republican pollster did some polling of gun owners that shows this subject is not resolved. that a lot of gun owners are for reasonable gun control measures. i'm sick of the nra that just making us feel like the debate is over and we can't bring it up again. what did eric boehlert tell us? 30,000 people a year are killed in the united states by guns. all right. anyway. mittens, still in israel. i'm not sure he made a gaffe today. >> as president, my first foreign trip will not be to cairo or riyadh or ankara. it will be to jerusalem. the president already met -- he did make a mistake. he called jerusalem the capital
