9:00 pm
packed house. it shows just how much enthusiasm has faded and he has singly handed set back this country. what do you do when you can't ask the country if they are better off when they were four years ago. you come up with something like this. >> we have come too far, the change that we fought for these past few years. we have to move forward, to the future we imagined in 2008, we are not going back. we are moving this country forward on issue after issue. we can't afford to spend the next four years going backwards. we're not going back there. [ cheers and applause ] >> we are not turning back the clock! we are moving forward! >> won't be better off if we have the courage to keep moving
9:01 pm
forward? that is the question in this election. [ cheers and applause ] >> if you are willing to work even harder in this election than you did in the last election, i guarantee you we will move this country forward. >> sean: the president is auditioning for a job on msnbc. after his dismal kickoff performance, governor romney's campaign were quick to respond and reminded americans who is really suffering. >> tonight new evidence that the economic recovery is slowing. >> unemployment rate 8.1%. >> over and over again america is down and out. >> it did drop to 89.1% because fewer people are in the work force. >> when asked if you were better off. >> i'm not seeing a ton of sunshine. >> that is terrible number. >> the real question, job creation numbers fall for the
9:02 pm
third straight month. >> not just about how we are doing today but how we will be doing tomorrow. that is why i'm running again for president of united states! >> sean: joining me now is reaction of the author of a brand-new book, "called" screwed author dick morris. >> sean: it's not about the campaign in many ways it is. i thought robert deniro had a pretty good line i think he is going to do better the next four
9:03 pm
years. let's look at these pictures. compare this empty, look at this. floor is empty, as well. let me compare that to 2010. you soo can see on the left side of the screen, the place is packed. look at that. is that not a big indicator in and of itself. >> it's been a huge change in the last four weeks in president obama's image. he was always in trouble now, its disaster. the reason it is a disaster he has lost the one thing that was holding him up, personal popularity. i just did a poll in michigan of 500 likely voters. normally you pass polls in other states. his personal favorability was 01-15 points above but now it's even. people have stopped liking him.
9:04 pm
the kind of speech making is not presidential. it's not dignified. it's not what the president should be. he is losing the one thing he had, personal like built. >> sean: if you look at u.s.a. today, though, it shows like built was still high. >> i think those poll numbers have been art firm for a long time. >> i don't know how ways you can say this. this is not a close election, you hear me, into the close election. >> sean: you are saying a landslide victory for romney. >> finally the gallup poll caught up with this where they took 150,000 interviews from all of 2011 and compared them with all of 2010. they found there were only ten states where obama had a favorability or job approval about 50.0.
9:05 pm
they said it means 139 electoral votes. believe that is what you are looking at. when you see a media poll that says that obama is leading in ohio, 45-43, that means she losing. >> sean: let's take a look at some of the pole numbers. the biggest indicate ser independents. if you look at match-up poll, it's 48-47. there shall three other polls that are same. in florida on he is up by two and ohio he is down by two. now if you look at the head to head match up it's 48-38. is that the poll that decides the election? >> that is decisive but not 48-38, it's 62-38. the undecided vote go is for the
9:06 pm
incumbent. >> sean: let's show this one. best he can do is break even as a democrat he going to win california, new york, win oregon so if the swing states. >> i wouldn't be sure of washington. i would not be sure of new jersey. >> sean: even without christie. what about pennsylvania? >> pennsylvania the polls show obama, the voter polls, not the likely voter polls show him at 51. the likely voter polls show him under 50. my guess he'll lose pennsylvania. you look at the lasts election in pennsylvania we won five congressional seats, and both houses of the legislature. there is a lot of polling in there just late lately. we are likely to win wisconsin
9:07 pm
and michigan. michigan, i just told you. when we ask for obama's job approval in michigan, michigan, it's 45. >> sean: northern virginia very liberal. >> a little bit of an exception because of that. it's basically washington, d.c.'s overlap. >> shep: north carolina? >> that is republican. >> sean: colorado, florida? >> overwhelmingly republican. >> sean: why are you getting flustered with me. we're talking to people out in tv land. >> there are two important things to pay attention to. with adults registered voters, we're likely voters pay attention to it. secondly, is obama under 50. he is cooked, if he is over 50
9:08 pm
he'll win. i want people to be cautiously optimistic that obama can get on fear of a second term. >> sean: i don't think the country can survive. >> i'll tell you one other thing. i believe if we properly understand what is going on and we work hard and split the opportunities that are available to us, i believe not only the senate but 60 votes. >> this new book you surprise me. coming up, we'll have more with dick morris morris, it's skauld called "screwed." are we screwed? and vetting obama, two outrageous examples that the placing is apeedz go our worst enemies including taliban and terrorists behind 9/11 as word is breaking that an airline bomb plot has been thwarted by our c.i.a. much more on this busy edition of hannity.

9:13 pm
about one world government and you say, yeah, it's happening. explain. >> i believe that president obama at some level knows he is not going to get re-elected and hillary knows it. remember when they passed the start treaty, lame duck session, i believe that he is going to sign a series of treats that will bind the united states hand in foot for decades and get them ratified by the lame duck senate. one of them is coming up for ratification the in june. it's called the lost, united states is obliged to share half of the oil royals up to 200 miles with a new u.n. based sea bed authority. which will distribute the money to 160 nations.

9:16 pm
>> sean: and deploying anti-missile defense systems. >> you know how liberals has not wanted us to have a missile defense because they claim we'll do a first strike. europeans said there is too much debris outerspace and it's litter and could crash into satellites and stuff. they passed a code of conduct in outerspace that says no country may launch a missile or a satellite that contributes to debris. that means we can't send up anti-satellites, we can't send up missile interceptors. the only way we have neutralizing north korea and iran if they get the bomb is space based missile. this treaty would prohibit it. hillary in january, deputy of state said we would not pursue
9:17 pm
negotiations on this. >> sean: this is how deep this goes. we're only touching the surface. you are going to have buy his book. it would prevent literally force the american export of our weapons that we develop and our technology to other countries. it would have jurisdiction over firearms in the united states. it would prohibit deploying anti-missile defense system and force america to give aid. redistribute wealth to foreign countries. >> there is something called the rights of the child treaty which britain is significant thater to to. when cameron wanted to cut welfare benefits in britain, the rights of child advocate sued him said he wasn't allowed him to do that. the treaty provides that rich nations have a legal obligation
