super eli how do you like me now manning? pretty impressive. see you tomorrow. we have parade highlights for you. >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight: >> do you deserve a second term. >> i deserve a second term but we're not done. >> bill: that was second. this was one year ago. >> does it disturb that you some people hate you? >> [ laughter ] >> bill: are president obama's fortunes changing in america? are they getting better? brit hume andly analyze. >> thank you michigan senator debbie stab know. debbie spent so much american money. borrow more and more from us. >> bill: political add raising racial questions. is what you just heard acceptable? juan and mary katharine will weigh in. >> people are out of work and they are hurting. they are all wondering what they are going to do to make a
come back. >> bill: clinton eastwood in a big super bowl ad for chrysler. some think it is a pro-obama situation. we will get to the bottom of that. >> a man has got to know his limitations. caution. you are about to enter the no spin zone. factor begins right now. >> captions by closed captioning services >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. president obama and the super bowl, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. yesterday, nbc matt lauer interviewed the president for six minutes a few hours before the super bowl game. pretty standard stuff. the president saying his improving the economy and he is watching iran very closely. last year you may remember that i your humble correspondent interviewed the president before the game. we talked with him for about 14 minutes and the tone was very different. >> do you deny that you are a ma'am who wants to
redistribute wealth? >> absolutely. >> you deny that. >> bill, i didn't raise taxes once. i lowered taxes over the last two years. >> bill: but the -- >> lowered taxes for the last two years. what i. >> bill: entitlements that you championed do redistribute wealth in the sense that they provide insurance coverage for those that don't have. >> what is true. in this country no reason why if you get sick you should go bankrupt. the notion that is a radical principle i don't think the majority of people would agree with you. >> bill: why do the majority of the people in the polls not support obama care. >> actually, i think it's pretty evenly. >> bill: it's close. >> it's evenly divided, bill. >> bill: obama issue now in the supreme court to be decided by summer. another interesting part of the interview was egypt. >> the muslim brotherhood gray concern to a lot of the people are they a threat to the u.s.a. >> i think the muslim brotherhood is one faction in egypt. they don't have majority support in egypt. they are -- but they are well
organized. there are strains of bear ideology that are anti-u.s. there is no doubt about it. >> you don't want the muslim brotherhood. >> what i isn't a representative government in egypt. i have confidence if egypt moves in orderly transition process. we have a government in egypt work together as a partner. >> those are tough boys muslim brotherhood. >> bill: that confidence not well founded egypt says it will put 19 americans on trial. totally trumped up charges. the u.s.a. is threatening to suspend 19 quadrillion we give them. mess and islamists are behind it no question obama is in a better position today than he was than he was last year at this time. poll has obama defeating he romney 49-42. the president's job approval rating has raised to 50% with 48% disapproving. that poll means little because the election is still nine months away and election can
change fast. jobs will most likely decide the race unless the republic challenger can define the danger of america's massive debt in a way that will get the attention of the voters that's not going to be easy. independence try to decide who to support. those debates will be high tension expositions no question. talking points suspects one of the closest elections in the nation's history. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight is president obama gaining momentum. joining us now west coast senior analyst brit hume. i didn't get you at the golf course. we didn't pull you off voting. >> welcome to boca grand. >> it's a beautiful place that's why you are there because you are a guy that mingles among the beautiful people. now, pomple far different guy with matt lauer yesterday than he was with me a year ago.
why? is he more confident? >> you are a far different guy from matt lauer. did you much more jousting with him than the at least the portion of the interview that we saw yesterday showed. he got a couple of nulgs as you reflected. he observed re-election. he didn't think not made a decision to attack iran. so he made a little bit of news. your interview i thought was more challenging. played at greater length. you did well, he did well. >> bill: i think the president's demeanor was different yesterday. i think he is much more confident now than he was maybe even two or three months ago. scenarioly two or three months ago or a little past that he would have had reason to be worried. the economy was weak. job growth was poor. things have picked up. the economy, you know, i'm not sure how fast it's growing but job growth has begun a bit. how long it will last is anybody's guess. that's the thing -- that of course is the number that we all watched the most when you
are looking for the outcome presidential election. so the president has some reason to be confident. of course, he can't help but be heartened by the spectacle of the republic candidates tearing each other apart the way they have been. >> you agree with me is he a more confident guy right now. what about the polls? a "the washington post" poll also shows what rasmussen showed that the president would beat mitt romney. i don't think that means anything right now. am i wrong? >> no. i think you are right. i don't think that poll means very much right now. romney is at a place he is in the middle of this battle with newt gingrich. both men have been attacking each or o. which in terms of the way they are viewed by the public at large as opposed to the republic electorate are not helpful. romney may be low point city stage. if this battle goes on much longer he could dip further. by the time is he all dressed up and they have a convention if indeed he is the nominee and is he presented to the
public and the favorable light that conventions are about, and he is a winner, he will look different to the public. presumably he will look better. >> bill: would it be smarter. >> look more presidential. >> bill: would it be smarter now that he is ahead by a substantial margin to campaign against barack obama and not continue the food fight with newt gingrich? would it be smarter for him to just take a cool law lated historic risk that he is ahead, he will stay ahead and focus in on his eventual challenger or is he going to have to continue with the gingrich stuff? >> well, not just gingrich. he has now gun to attack rick santorum and the expectation that rick santorum could have a pretty good day tomorrow and begin to emerge, perhaps, surfacing -- well, yes. and possibly minnesota when all is said and done out there. bill, i think that this is a tough question for the romney people. they have let up on the attacks, twits. they let up after iowa and i think they thought that they were fine after new hampshire.
and then gingrich came back and they started to attack him again in south carolina but it was too late. and then they just beat him within an inch of his life with attack ads in florida and it worked. they have continued that i think they are probably afraid to let up and go 100% positive and moreover romney has been on the attack during the debate. and in the florida debates at least he seemed to do pretty well. what i think is that they are probably facing a real dilemma. romney has raised his game on the negative side. the question really is is for a lot of republic voters is can he raise his game on the positive side and begin to convince the many republic voters who have doubts about him that he is one of them and has a strong positive agenda. >> bill: i think he showed he could do that in nevada on saturday when he got auto% of the vote and the exit polls show most conservative voters out in nevada went for romney. that wasn't a particularly negative campaign out there in that caucus, was it? >> well, it was to some extent, bill. there was a tiny little, you
know, just 20 some thousand voters, i guess. it's a different matter when you are campaigning on a larger state and you get sort of a larger national audience as well. i think the nevada caucuses this saturday night. and soen o, i'm not sure how visible they were to the public at large. caesars palace than there was at caucus at nevada. [ laughter ] that's probably true. all right. so, at this point, president obama, i think we can say is more confident. game suspect. the polls rupp for him. the republics are still kind of fleshing it out what's going to happen. brit hume, thank you very much. >> bill: you have the last thought, go ahead. people will yell at me if i don't get it in. >> until this question of the republic party is settled, this obama may continue to lead in the polls. >> bill: yeah. i don't think there? i doubt about it next on the
rundown, using ethnic people in political ads? is that acceptable these days? then clint eastwood doing a commercial for chrysler that some say was pro-president obama. coming right back. across the golden state, where everyone has been unbelievably nice. mornin'. i guess i'm helping them save hundreds on car insurance.
it probably also doesn't hurt that i'm a world-famous advertising icon. cheers! i mean, who wouldn't want a piece of that? geico. ah... fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent oh dear... or more on car insurance. you really want to be careful, you can't use something as abrasive as a toothpaste because it will cause scratches. as a result of those scratches, bacteria will get lodged in that denture and as they multiply in the mouth the odor can get stronger. i always advise my patients to use polident. it has specific agents in it that can kill bacteria. using polident daily, you definitely will not be creating the scratches. you're going to have a fresh bright smile, and you're going to feel confident.
sometimes life can be, well, a little uncomfortable, but when it's hard or hurts to go to the bathroom, there's dulcolax stool softener. dulcolax stool softener doesn't make you go... it just makes it easier to go. dulcolax stool softener. make yourself comfortable. >> bill: in the impact segment tonight, in michigan, there is a very intense race for senate seat between debbie stabenow
and pete hoekstra and race has entered the race. ♪ ♪ >> thank you, michigan senator debbie stabenow, debbie spent so much american money you borrowed more and more from us. your economy get very weak. ours get very good. we take your jobs, thank you debbie stabenow. >> i think this race for u.s. senate is between debbie spend it now and pete spend it not. i'm pete spend it not hoekstra and i approve this message. >> bill: is that message acceptable? juan, what say you? acceptable? >> you know, i think it is a satyrical ad to. me it was silly. this woman portrayed as some sort of charlie chan character. this is supposed to be a serious issue if you are talking about u.s. debt, china, holding our bonds. it just doesn't seem worthy of
pete hoekstra. to me this was child and given that you know what, the republic party has all these problems because it's almost an all-whited party and got all these issues with immigration, minorities, mocking people. i just don't think that was an effect forgive add for pete. it creates problems and crosses the line. >> bill: asian and pacific islanders vote group nonpartisan group, mary katharine says quote, it's very disturbing that mr. hoekstra's campaign shows harmful stereotypes encourage anti-asian sentiment. what do you think of that? >> i think it was not a smart ad. delve into something that's going to get a racial conversation started not a good situation. you can talk about china without going there it felt dated. it did not feel. >> bill: it wasn't china it was almost veems viewpoint
vietnamese with rice patties. asian woman happy her economy is doing much better at the expense of the american economy and speaking broken english which is, of course, a cliche. i don't know if that's a smart thing to do. >> the ad came from fred davis who is a republic ad guru known for working outside the box. and what he does is he does catch people's attention. bad way and other times in good ways. he did the ads for governor snyder, republic governor in michigan in 2010. which are really good called one tough nerd. he did the celebrity ad for mccain even though mccain didn't end up winning. overall he did i'm not a witch and demon sheep. >> bill: good research. catching attention not necessarily in a good way. , with all due respect unless
you have the asian girl saying what she said. okay. now, people ♪ people, who need people, okay? >> bill: remember that song? barbra streisand does it a little bit better than me. you know. are the luckiest people, juan, in the world. you know they are. luckiest people in the world. barbra streisand hates you. on the huffington post, she says, quote, what juan williams failed to point out is that barack obama has not put anyone on food stamps. the grossly irresponsible and greedy practices of those on wall street created the most severe recession our country has ever experienced since the great recession. these events along with the continuous deregulation of our financial sector conspired to make record number of people food assistance. juan williams completely missed this opportunity to reveal the real truth behind newt gingrich's racist assertions. ♪ are the luckiest people in the world.
>> yeah. thank you. well, i guess she thinks that my job is to somehow argue with newt gingrich. i can ask a question. that was my job as a moderator on the fox debate. it's not my job to argue with him. he wants to answer. let him answer how he wants to answer it and let her be the judge. why she has to attack me, i don't get it i know she loves you but apparently. >> loves me and hates you. frmts juan, just the fact that barbra streisand would mention your name on the huffington post, macy big. nobody cares what she says. all right? i know that for a fact. >> she goes out in her malibu, you know, down the pacific highway and she waives at people and they just drive right by. but, this is the irony of this. williams, williams gets hammered all over the place. >> from both sides. williams is a bad guy.
he was supporting gingrich. you can't win, juan. mary katharine take it away for us. >> isn't that the o'reilly rule. take heart in that and i am, it's a big deal to get a mention from babs. but i do have to say i always wanted to see the two of them to sing together and now i don't think that will be a possibility. >> bill: juan and barbara? >> yeah. >> i think o'reilly apparently has a voice. >> bill: the way we were. >> i would not be surprised. >> bill: i liked that little disco song she did with ♪ enough is enough. >> bill: i am delirious today ladies and gentlemen. it's just important to me that juan williams has caught the attention of barbra streisand. directly ahead, did clint eastwood help president obama by doing a super bowl ad for a car company? on abortion and the network news. those reports after these

>> bill: personal story segment tonight, movie icon clinton eastwood a thinker traditional values. some were surprised to see mr. eastwood in a chrysler ad that played during the super bowl. >> people are out of work and they are hurting. they are all wondering what they are going to do to make a come back. and we're all scared because this isn't a game. people of detroit know a little something about this. they almost lost everything. but we all pulled together. now motor city is fighting again. this country can't be knocked out in one punch. we get right back up again and when we do, the world is going to hear the roar of our engines.
yeah. it's halftime, america. and our second half is about to begin. >> bill: well, some republicans did not like that ad. i was frankly offended by it i'm a huge fan of clinton eastwood. extremely well done ad. sign of what happens when you have chicago style politics and the president of the united states and political minute i couldn't knows from minions using tax dollars to buy corporate advertising. >> bill: moments ago before air time clinton eastwood gave us a statement i'm going to read it to you, quote. i want to stay that the spin stops with you guys. no spin on that ad on that i'm certain. i'm certainly not politically affiliated about mr. obama. message about job growth and spirit of america. i think all politicians would agree with it spirit was okay. i'm not supporting any opinion. chrysler didn't have ads in the ad. anything they gave me went to charity. if obama or politician wants to run with the spirit of the ad i say go for it quote clinton eastwood.
mr. paul, i take him at his word that this wasn't an overt political ad or anything that clinton eastward did for president obama. do you take him at his word? >> from clinton's perspective? >> bill: is he an honest man i know this guy for a long time. about a straight shooter as you can possibly get. but subliminally karl rove and you took it as a favorable to obama? >> that's what advertising is all about. >> bill: it's a car ad though? >> yes. but the reason why ads work is because when we're not thinking, we are thinking. there is something else happening. it's branding literally. >> bill: what grabbed you about the ad that made you think it was in favor of the president? >> to me it was a classic thank you ad. thank you for bailing us out. thank you for what you did. >> bill: didn't say anything about bailing out. >> didn't have to. >> bill: you took it as because president obama put a lot of stimulus money into detroit,. >> that's right. >> bill: that this was a thank you for doing that. >> we weren't here a year ago
tonight talking about how eminem, the ad started the detroit is on the way back was ploy. detroit came up with the ad detroit is on the way back buy american cars. very successful ad. detroit said let's do it again. >> bill: chrysler not everybody in detroit. but the point is that smart guys like mr. paul and karl rove, you would cede both of them are smart guys. they took it as a subliminal political message that the government in washington, giving taxpayer money to private industry to keep them from going down, was worthy and good. that's how they took it. >> that's right. >> you know, that's the beauty of subliminal ads. you can take it any way you want to. i turned to my dad and said is clinton eastwood announcing is he running for office? >> he was actually doing an ad he is joining the fray.
>> bill: stimulus or bailout money didn't enter into your mind at all. >> no. >> bill: this is a fascinating discussion. so now eastwood, who i think tried to do a good thing, all right? would you both cede he tried to do a good thing? he is trying to get americans saying we are coming back. we're going to rally around. we have got bad times. we will work our way out of it like we have always done. this guy is getting hammered as an idealogue he is caught in the political wars. so, you know, that's why people are cautious doing any of this stuff. i don't think that's fair to eastwood. >> i'm sure his pr people are saying you are going to have to answer tough questions when they asked what is one punch what's the second punch going to refer to? is it a first term? is it -- i know this guy. believe me. is he not trying to get anybody elected. >> he didn't write the copy. >> no, he didn't. he read the copy. is he director and actor. he knows the words he is saying.
he went over and over and over. i don't think it entered into his mind. marketing perspective any ad you do didn't say what it was for. come back america. going to get a hit and take flac for it at the end of the ad he talks about when america gets knocked down. i didn't think obama. i thought president bush standing on 9/11 at the world trade center saying they are going to hear us all pretty soon. >> bill: it was something of look we all have to rally together. >> we are going to come back. >> bill: wasn't some kind of context because clinton eastwood had done a movie called grand tore reno in detroit and i think he probably feels bad for the city which is falling apart. >> another reason why it goes that way is it's an election year. incumbent is going to get the benefit of the doubt. ambiguity there. >> karl rove coming on tomorrow. ask him about it. gentlemen thank you very much. appreciate it one million mom organization wants j.c. penney

>> bill: unresolved problem segment tonight, 1 million moms, the family organization is upset that j.c. penney has hired ellen degeneres as a spokesperson. they are demanding the company fire her. we tried to get one of the 1 million moms come on the factor tonight. we'll could not. apparently all million moms are busy. joining us from chicago sandy rerose fox news contributor. business story for me. let's start there. is it right for any organization, liberal, conservative, doesn't matter to demand a company fire a spokesperson who has done nothing legally wrong, nothing at all? is that right? >> well, two things, bill, we saw a little bit of that sort
of the susan komen foundation and saw congress weigh in on it at least the senators do that prirst citizens they have something to say about how they feel about how the business -- the place that they do business with is operating. they are free to do that. i would say this though, bill, in the case of 1 million moms and people like me, just because something is legal doesn't mean it's moral. that's the difference. with abortion. people think. >> bill: you have a right to your opinion and we respect that opinion and fox news channel i think has made a tremendous contribution to the country by respecting traditional opinion. this as i said is a business deal. ms. degeneres is hired as a spokesperson c. penny. j.c. penney has absolutely perfect right to do that as you have in your belief system. there she is earning a salary to represent the department store chain. and then the million moms say hey, because we feel a certain
way about miss degeneres' lifestyle you need to fire her. i don't think that's the spirit of america, sandy, i have got to tell you. >> bill, spokes people stand for something, people are chosen because they stand for something thing. they represent companies, it matters very much what they stand for. from my perspective it isn't about ellen degeneres about mainstreaming something that is not acceptable to christian and traditional family people all over the country. >> bill: is about ellen degeneres and this is where we run into a problem. if you remember with the mccarthy era, in the 50s and they were trying to hunt down communist sympathizers and not let them work and put them. >> bill: wait. what is the difference between mccarthy era communist blacklist in the 50s and the million moms saying, hey, j.c. penney and all you other stores don't you hire any gay
people, don't you dare. what is the difference? >> bill, listen to me. the problem is that ellen degeneres has chosen to act out her lesbian lifestyle and marry her partner and what that represents. the fact that j.c. penney is supposed to be middle america the store where families shop. people that believe that marriage is between a man and woman and children should not be exposed to propagandized in homosexuality have a moral problem with that. it's disturbing to them. they are trying to say to j.c. penney please don't do that. >> >> bill: don't shop there. >> i guarantee you they won't. there are millions of them who won't. >> bill: j.c. penney's decision. >> yeah, it is. >> bill: keep her or not keep her. but you are dodging. >> why shouldn't -- >> bill: you are dodging the essential question. the essential question is that a group, a conservative group in this country is asking a private company to fire an american citizen based upon
her lifestyle. and i don't think that's correct. i don't have any problem with you, sandy, or any of the million moms not shopping at j.c. penny. you don't want to shop there because you don't believe the message that they are sending by hiring ellen is a good message. more power to you. that is your decision and your right as an american. to come out and demand the woman be fired far left loons commanding i be fired because i stick up for traditional values. >> they do that bill. >> bill: they are wrong to do it. >> they have a right to say to fox fire bill we don't like what he said. >> bill: they have a right but they are wrong to do it. >> they are wrong because they shouldn't fire you. they are not wrong to voice their opinion about what ellen represents. bill, the thing about it is it is so deep. we are seeing homosexuality so embedded in our culture in alarming ways. that's the part of the story that we are not allowed to tell. it's like children's hospital where they are -- >> bill: that's why the
million moms' organization exists to get the message out that they object. >> yes. that's what they are doing. >> bill: that's why we wanted to give them a voice tonight. they wouldn't come on because they didn't want to face the essential question. >> i know why they didn't come on because they are moms. no, it's not a witch-hunt, bill. this is a serious problem in our culture when we are trying to pop began dyes propagandize our children. >> bill: this is a witch-hunt. >> it's not it's a legitimate complaint. i love you bill but it's a legitimate complaint. >> bill: i respect you, how abortion is covered by the network news. another very controversial situation. then madonna at the super bowl. did she light it up or was she boring? we will put that question to you upcoming. what's withou?
>> bill: thanks for staying with us. i'm bill o'reilly in the weekdays with bernie segment tonight. as you may know there was a big abortion controversy last week when susan komen foundation said it was not going to fund planned parenthood any longer. the left wing press was outraged. >> i come here today expressing the anger of a lot of people channeling through them, you see it on twitter and everywhere. some people would say that, i mean the anger that's being expressside going to hit you in the pocket book worked so hard to create a bipartisan organization. look at your facebook page has people cutting pink ribbons in half. your branding is at stake. >> bill: after a few days of tht kind of stuff they surrendered and will continue to do business with planned parenthood. now how the abortion story was covered. bernie goldberg joins me this evening. interesting this story is almost the same we have with sandy rios. on the other side now. the intolerance is on the left about the abortion situation.
they don't respect people who are pro-life. and so that's why i put these
segments back to back. what say you? >> well, there is something that needs to be said no matter how uncomfortable it makes some people listening to us. there is a strain of bigotry. that's the word i want to use. running through conservative america. it doesn't mean all conservatives are bigots or even that most conservatives are bigots. that's not what i'm saying. there is a strain of bigotry and it goes against gay people, for instance. ellen degeneres did nothing wrong. she is gay. right? there is -- reasonable people may disagree on gay marriage. that's fine. but to call on somebody's dismissal to be fired, to lose her job because she is gay is bigotry. i don't care how many people listening to us right now
don't like that. >> bill: the argument though. >> let me say one other thing briefly,bill. in the middle of the last century in the 1950s and 1960's, there was another strain of bigotry on the right and it was against black people. that has to leave the conservative movement. i used to be a liberal. i have became a conservative because liberals were a little too crazy for me. a lot too crazy for me. actually. you know what? i am immensely uncomfortable with the bigotry on the right
and i don't care how many people don't like it. i am sick of it. >> i am going to stick up now for the million moms who i think are wrong in the j.p. penny situation just briefly and i want to get on from this abortion thing. it's not ellen degeneres' homosexuality. it's how she presents it to the public that they believe they believe the million sandy rios and million moms that she flaunts it she puts it in their face. >> she flaunts it.
i flaunt my hetero sexuality. >> bill: no you don't. we don't know about your personal life. you don't walk around. >> what do you mean he flaunts it. >> bill: she makes it a cause celeb. that's what they object to. >> there are minority that in many places are under attack. she has every right to make it a cause. and it's not -- there is no agenda. she is just gay. she wants to live her life as a gay person. >> bill: okay. >> i'm telling you. i'm sick of this. >> bill: bigotry against pro-life people is i think way more than the bigotry against gay people in this country particularly in the media the media supports gay people generally speaking. >> right. well, that sound bite that you played of andrea mitchell i think andrea mitchell told us more than she intended to. first, she says that there is a lot of anger in america over the komen's charity decision
not to fund planned parenthood. she is absolutely right. what she left out is that there was a lot of happiness in america over the decision to stop giving money to planned parenthood. andrea mitchell and a lot of mainstream reporters don't know these pro-life people. they don't travel in the same universe as these people. they don't live -- those pro-life people don't live in the same liberal bubble that andrea mitchell lives in. then the second point she made and she said, you know, the komen charity worked very hard to be nonpartisan. so follow this. nonpartisan, nonpartisan when they give money to planned parenthood but they are partisan when they stop giving money. let me tell you what it is about in a sentence, bill. liberal journalists think that people who are pro-choice are sophisticated reasonable and rational. they think that people who are
pro-life are not sophisticated, are not reasonable, and are right wing. what most reporters need to do, so-called mainstream reporters is understand that people who live between manhattan and malibu are americans, too. they have values too. they are not the same as the liberal elite media's values but they are values that should be respected, also. >> bill: all right, bernie. we appreciate it and i agree. i just think that very, very few -- very few media people in this country respect the pro-life position, which, when you just boil it all down, what do pro-life people want? they want to save babies. that's what they want. is that terrible? i don't think so. bernie goldberg, everybody, reality check on deck. madonna at the super bowl. a big hit or was it boring? you can decide. check is next. ♪
>> bill: back of book segment tonight. romney check. looks like the romney race has already begun. after his win in nevada, the governor said. this three years ago, a newly elected president obama told america that if congress approved his plan to borrow nearly a trillion dollars he would hold unemployment below 8%. it hasn't been below 8% since. this week for 8.3% unemployment. not so fast, mr. president. this is the 36th straight month with unemployment above the red line. your own administration drew. >> well, in response, nbc correspondent chuck todd said this about romney. >> when he sort of threw that by the way doesn't get credit.
