tv The O Reilly Factor FOX News July 26, 2012 4:00am-5:00am EDT
it's just that the random sample came out that way. the journal's article today about the poll doesn't mention the democrat advantage. not good. by the way, the "wall street journal" and fox news are owned by the same company. the truth is nobody knows who is ahead. the campaign is very fluid right now. what talking points does know is that many american voters have no clue as to what is going on in the country. last night we told you that 35%, 35% of american homes, more than 100 million people are now receiving welfare payments. 50 years ago that number was 6%. today, the social security administration tells us more workers are on disability than at any other time in the nation's history. almost 9 million collecting federal disability checks. in february of 2001, the number was 5 million; in just over 11 years. disability payments have doubled. are you telling me the work place is that much more dangerous that the health of americans is that much more precarious? come on. we all know what's going on here. our society is changing from
self-reliance to give me stuff. now, not every worker on disability is gaming the system. most have legitimate health issues. we know that not every family receiving welfare is taking advantage of the taxpayers. the trend is undeniable. under president obama and even under president bush the younger, american society has moved toward government dependence. we are, indeed, becoming a nanny state. that's the primary reason we have $16 trillion of debt. that's the reason why the work place is stagnant. individual am pigs is on on the -- ambition is on the decline. that's why president obama's poll numbers remain competitive even in the face of the american economy. millions of americans simply want the government to provide and the president is the provider in chief. by the way, the 100 million americans receiving welfare are not likely to be supporting mitt romney. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. governor romney in london for the opening of the olympics. in response, pro-obama folks have put out this ad.
>> welcome to the olympics. there is mitt romney who ran the salt lake city games. waving to china. home to it a billion people. thousands owe their jobs to mitt romney's. india, which also gained jobs thanks to romney and outsourcing pioneer. and burma where romney had the uniforms made for the 2002 games. we know the swiss have a special place in mitt romney's wallet or heart. he kept millions in swiss banks. [ laughter ] those swiss sure know how to keep a secret. >> bill: with us now, carl rove. that ad was taken out by a group called priorities u.s.a. super pac supporting obama. you have a super pac crossroads supporting mitt romney. was that ad effective? >> not really. first of all they repeat the stuff about outsourcing which even the "washington post" called in an editorial quote bunk end quote. >> bill: you know most people don't know that they just see this stuff. >> you know what? most people are never going to
see this add. more people will see this ad tonight on your program than priorities u.s.a. has put behind this ad and showed around the country. have you been suckered by bill burton more. >> bill: i'm not suckered by anybody. i'm telling you what the theme of that day is that ad, and this is obviously a continuation, of proper traying mitt romney as this predatory capitalist, this greed head somehow hiding his money. >> you know, i love this. it's terrible that he had money in a swiss bank account. really? five members of the white house staff valerie jarrett, christopher lou. dave carney and christopher plouffe all have investments, including many of them investments in foreign international mutual funds one of them is a particular favorite among this crew has money in banks from russia to gutter to china to you name it. they have -- they hold pieces of secretive holding companies headquartered in such tax savings like the aisle of
jersey, the aisle of main and buremed. if these are bad things for mitt romney. maybe the president ought to start policing his staff and get money in foreign banks. >> bill: ad is ludicrous not going to have any effect at all. >> no. the american people get it this is not the first such ad they have run. they have been runs these ads since may 15th. >> bill: you don't think it's working. >> i don't think so. particularly since romney has begun to rebut it and other outside groups have begun to rebut it. why is obama doing this? the american people are not dumb. they know he is doing this small ball dirty little gutter campaign because he doesn't have a record to rub on. ordinary people look at it and say you know what? we have got 8% unemployment. we have $4.2 billion. >> bill: all the polls show that it's still a close horse race. >> sure it is. >> bill: i submit to you. i don't think that nbc and "wall street journal" poll is accurate. but i do think it's a very very close race right now. and you still believe that. >> i agree, yes.
>> bill: people don't really understand what's going on. they don't -- that's why i'm doing this. >> i'm glad you're doing it every night but i think there is a different reason. radio it now we are locked up because the partisans have made up their minds. unanswered media which is what obama tried to do starting in may would not move the dial. obama spoken, the romney forces have spoken. romney's allies have spoken. obama's allies have spoken and brought to a stalemate. the people who make up their minds in this election and decide this election independent voters are going to make up their minds in september and october. and they are collecting information now. >> bill: if that's true why is your pac, crossroads, putting spending money and putting out ads like this. roll the tape. >> okay fans. let's go to the fumble of the week. barack obama drops the ball on his own one yard line. >> if you have got a business, you didn't build that. >> no. >> somebody else made that happen. >> the team obama contests the call. >> actually, he didn't say that. >> huh? >> twisting my words around. >> they start slicing and
dicing. >> those ad thes taking my words about small business out of context. >> watch the tape. >> you heard the man. let's go to the tape. >> you didn't build that. >> [gasp] >> somebody else made that happen. >> oh. >> nobody else made that happen. >> bill: same thing? i got suckered by you running that ad. >> that's a web ad. been advertised as a web ad. we are not spending a lot of money. >> bill: did i get suckered by you to run it. >> no i didn't pretend we were going to run it on tv. >> bill: how many people will see that ad? is that more effective than the other ad. >> the other ad will get more attention because people will think t will appear on tv. at the end of the day it -- every american politics generates counter argument. we already had this argument. started it make it the gallup daily tracking poll was 45, 45. today after three months of being pounded on this issue 46
romney 45 obama. >> what is your goal in the ad that we just saw? what do you want to get across? >> we want to extense the narrative and mock the president to say you took a lot out of you stood up and there and anybody issue inned the success of small business people if you build a business somebody else did that. >> bill: you will want to mock him for doing this. >> what else? >> fundamentally out of sync to the american people. >> why is he out of sync. >> he believes we can spend our way out of prosperity and don't need to rely and have to rely on small business to be the generator of growth in america. >> bill: do you buy the right wing that he wants to destroy the economy so everything changes? >> no. i buy the argument that his policies have either not helped the economic recovery or have actually hurt it. we had 11.9% economic growth
last year. >> you think it's inefficiency. >> i think he is ideological. just got the wrong ideas. he thinks we can spend our way to prosperity. no country in the history of the world has succeeded at that. taken the size from being rough live equal to 25%. taken the public debt of the united states and nearly doubled it in four years. that's not a way to prosperity. >> bill: carl rove. thanks for coming in as always. violence in an mile california. it may be racial. we'll have a report from the scene. and then, batman star christian bale visiting some of the wounded in colorado. how is hollywood reacting to the massacre? we'll have a special report upcoming. ps
officers. 21-year-old joe and manuel diaz died after police confrontations. that led to this. [shouting] [sirens] >> if you don't depart, you shall be arrested. [shouting] >> trying to kill men and their wives] shouting] >> pig and all this [bleep]. [shouting] no justice, no peace. >> the fbi saying it will investigate the situation. joining us from irvine. joanne, activist with the take back anaheim initiative. why the violent reaction ms. sosa? >> the violent reaction, it actually started out with a rally. it started out i was the organizer of the rally. the folks from the drive and
surrounding area, those residents disenfranchised would come to be able to speak at city council. what happened was there was a protest and then there was led, the folks were led to the steps of city hall. once they gathered there, they tried to get into the council meeting but we already had about 125 of the teamsters were there for another issue. and had filled a the love the seats. these folks had came specifically to discuss why and get answers for the killings. they could not get. in we have very few, handful of folks maybe two or three got in from that huge crowd. >> bill: authorities limited how many people get into the meeting and the other people didn't like it and things got out of hand. now, the police tell us and, again, i'm not out at anaheim so i don't know. both the men who were shot over the weekend and last weekend were gang members. one actually shot at police. that was mr. asvedo. the other one this is usual in these kind of situations they
thought he had a gang. is he a known gang member. after he turned toward them he disobeyed their orders they shot him. are you disputing that? is there anything here that americans should know about other than a chaotic situation between the police and gang members? >> what america should know is that the gentleman that was killed on saturday was running from the police. there was an issue but he was supposed to be -- he was unarmed is what we have heard. he had no weapon. in front of people that we know, some of the folks that take classes and that we are involved with other organizations, they actually were eyewitnesses to that. i got the phone call when that happened. and this young woman evelyn said what do i do? i just saw the police murder a man. i said calm down, explain. >> shepard: now, -- >> bill: now the fbi obviously going come in. is that good enough?
is that going to quiet things down? >> here is the issue. we are very grateful that he would call on independent investigation and the folks feel that the residents feel that it needs transparency and since we have had about 6 to 8 also police officers shootings since the beginning of the year without any kind of remedy or any real answers for the community, this is the best way to go. so we are supporting that report by i have to tell you, bill, there are layers and layers and layers of other issues underneath this. >> bill: absolutely. do you feel any sympathy for the authorities in anaheim because you have a gang problem there and you know the drugs and you know the violence. >> yes. >> do you feel any sympathy for them? >> what i say is the empathy i feel is i know that we have a wonderful city. we have a police force that has been questioned over some of the shootings that have happened and we need that transparency. we have a police chief who has actually gone to these areas on the street and been part of
a coalition between our mayor tate. our galloway and our churches to go to that area, knock and talk and get these folks involved in dialogues, and covered them. we won't have these questions. >> bill: hopefully there will be solution to this thing is which is what everybody wants. >> absolutely. we want a summit. >> bill: thanks for coming on. how is hollywood racking to the movie massacre. adam. >> supporting ohm in a big way. jesse watters on assignment to find out why. we'll be back in
tonight. christian bale stars as batman in the new film visited some of the wounded in the colorado massacre situation. also the company that produced the film warner brothers may donate a million dollars for the fund for the shooting victims and we hope they do. joining us from burbank the author of the best selling book that the taco bell material adam corolla. i think you should go to warner brothers and go up to the ceo and i don't know who it is. a million dollars, you make that in two minutes on this batman movie, that's nothing. set up endowment for some of the kids that have lost their moms or dads in this thing and be a little bit generous. i think we should do that right off the bat, right? >> yeah. you make a million dollars in fanny pac sales in one week of batman. just memorabilia. so a million is nothing. it's sort of weird that they even said a million in this day and age. because it's tantamount to a medium sized house in the hollywood hills. number one.
number two, it's interesting that everyone in hollywood calls it a tragedy but everyone on fox calls it -- or everyone calls it i swapped that around. they all call it a tragedy, yes, and we call it a massacre, which is what it was. a tragedy is when a roof collapses. >> bill: tragedy isn't a violent crime. journalists know that. but i don't want to -- i don't want anybody to think that i'm indicting warner brothers or the movie. they had nothing to do with this. the movie is the movie. it's supposed to be a good movie and it didn't insight anything. i don't want people to get the wrong impression. however, in the charitable realm, all right, when you can help, and this batman movie worldwide made about $300 million in the first week in the first week. 300 million. it's a billion-dollar property. so, to me, if i'm warner brothers i say you know what? we're going to do some
scholarship activity. we're going to make sure we can help people who need to be helped in here just because we want to show we are americans and we care about other americans. christian bale did the right thing and he traveled to denver and yeah he gets good publicity out of it. i don't begrudge him that. he took the time. i'm sure the people were happy to see him. he did the right thing. i think right now that hollywood itself has to coalesce around the victims, the children involved and everybody else and help out. so i want you, adam carolla to insist they do it or else i'm going to have to come out there adam and nobody wants that. >> i do not want to be disciplined by you, bill, so i will definitely rally them. and the scary thing about this whole massacre slash tragedy is the fact that everyone was worried about copycat scenarios, which to me, is the scariest thing of all. like there is somebody sitting. >> they found him with a lot of guns. you know, look, it's a free society, you have got nuts everywhere. >> i understand but the notion
that somebody may be sitting at home going oh, wait, i foregot to go out and massacre a bench of people in the theater this weekend and now i'm reminded to do it? that's a very scary notion. i don't think it really exist. the think the news could product it any way. >> bill: any kind of a fuse lit can lead to disruption. let change gears here. we sent factor professor into a medical marijuana clinic. we believed we saw -- we told the folks this is a big ruse. medical marijuana if you have got a pain in your thumb all you have got to do is pay the doctor on hand 300 bucks which he puts in his pocket. you walk out with a script and get $500 worth of marijuana. city council catching on and closing this place. you have a bunch of zombies walking around stoned out of their mind and saying we can't have this anymore. >> couple of things, scurrying
out of the back door was a movie i starred n the 1980s and i'm not proud of it. you can look it. i will move on. that's a different chapter in my life. number one, number two, it was funny because kimmel said to me you have noticed there are all these cupcake stores opening in los angeles? all these high end cupcake stores a few years ago? i said yeah. he said did you ever think it's connected to all the pot dispensaries? i said you are right. no cupcake stores 10 years ago and no pot dispensaries. i believe if you want to grow a pot plant in your backyard on land that you own you should be able to to do it. obviously the stuff is a hoax and a ruse. these are drugs and by the way pot is powerful. it's a powerful drug now. i'm not antimarijuana but it is a drug. i was saying to your producer earlier they should put a
restricter plate on this stuff like nascar has on it. pot is too powerful now. >> that thc component in there. if you get behind the wheel of the car -- >> -- i my mom was a hippy in 1971 and she was arguing about legalizing marijuana. if you would have told her in 1917 that pot is still going to be legal or still going to be argued of about it she would have sharpened her bong and fell on it. >> bill: there you go we are still talking about it it wawforts world goes into nebulous territory to find out wife younger americans continue to support president obama bedtime. >> should we call it beckstock? we hope you stay tuned to those reports.
>> bill: watters world segment tonight, according to a recent gallup poll 18% of americans 18 to 29 approve of the job president obama is doing. overall just 45% of americans feel that way. why does the youth of america like the president so much? we sent jesse watters to long island for some answers. what's the all about. >> having a really awesome time. >> what's with the hair? >> rye grey eted it almost immediately. >> so what's the tour all
about. >> going buck wild. thank you, good evening. >> hey, mr., freeze. >> more pit. >> now, in the mosh pit, what are you trying to prove? [crickets] >> do you understand? >> how do you rock out? >> don't ever do that again. >> we get free hugs and kisses all day. >> do you want a hug? >> not from you. >> all right. there, get back over there. your head all right? >> no. i'm messed up right now. >> why are you smiling like that? >> why do so many young people support obama? >> they don't. >> they don't? >> what are you talking about? [ laughter ] >> he supports same sex marriage which is amazing. >> i think it's going to take a while for him to fix the mess that the republicans started. >> did you hear that somewhere? >> probably. he kind of accepts things likes a it is. >> he against things like not against, you know? >> that doesn't make sense.
>> you guys support the president. >> i don't really. i think he is too right wing to me. >> if obama legalized pot, would you vote for him? >> probably? >> next time don't take so long. >> how do you think is he doing so far as president. >> he is horrible. bush is better. >> why is that? why are they so duped into that hope and change stuff. >> a lot of drugs. >> is that right? listen, i still do appreciate knowing that. >> president obama still cool? >> eh. >> did you get a little dazed and confused in the mosh pit. >> yeah i got a concussion or something. >> i think you might have a concussion. >> as soon as i get home, the first thing i'm going to do is punch your momma in the mouth. >> are you going to vote. >> nope. >> why not. >> then i will get called for jury duty. [ laughter ] >> you are not going to vote. >> no, i'm a communist. >> you are a communist? >> yeah. >> what are you registered as? >> myself. >> are you serious? >> are you guys going to vote? >> yes. >> do you know when the
election is? >> november 11th, 2012. buzzer. >> close. >> hello? hello. >> what's the obama economic policies. do you understand that? >> no. [ laughter ] >> what's obama's jobs policies? >> i don't know. >> it's a hard question to answer. >> do you guys ever watch bill o'reilly? >> yes, i do, actually. he is like old school soldier. i respect that about him. >> bill: i appreciate that. >> have you ever heard of bill o'reilly? >> bill o'reilly, yes. bill o'reilly is the man. >> are you a fasten the show? >> no answer. >> speak, speak, why don't you speak. >> i feel like i have seen you somewhere. you are not famous are you? >> i'm watters. >> i'm samson. >> well, okay. >> bill: there you go. that's a constituency. and here are the results of our bill o'reilly.com poll. we asked who do you favor as mitt romney's running mate? and a whopping 6 a% of you
