. so that was the lebron-athon from earlier this week. one of the many topics we'll does with george will. ron brownstein, and ruth marcus. i want to start with president o obama. here's a glimpse. >> they're not coming back and saying, we screwed up. we learned our lesson. that's not their argument. they're trying to sell you the same stuff that they've been peddling. they are peddling that same snake oil that they've been peddling for years. >> so the president, george is trying to make this not a referendum on him but rath ear choice between him and republicans. will it work? >> no. because he's an expert on snake oil. the mab who said if we pass the $760 billion stimulus bill that cost $862 billion, we would have unemployment at 8% and no higher and it went higher. he said we have a wonderful idea of home owner tax credits for first-time home owners. it's largely subsidized home purchases that would have been made any way. last week, he said i'm going the give about $2 the billion to two companies to create about 16 on 1600 jobs. that is snake oil. >> ron, you were in the denver

that. george will. tucker carlson. katrina vanden heuvel. and donna brazile. it's the first lady's birthday. but she won't take the poll as a gift. job approval. majority disapproves of health care and the economy. 55% of how he handled the threat of terrorism. perhaps most concerning for president obama, 62% of those polled say the country is headed in the right direction. the key wrong track/right track numbers. what's going on here? >> to his credit, this is a serious president, who has decided not to horde his political capital. to govern is to choose. to choose is to make someone unhappy. and he's made a number of choices. almost all of them in my judgment, unfortunate. but he won the election. he gets to do that. furthermore, all of in time in a single bill. the fact that health care is unpopular, demonstrates how important it is to pass it. supervisory liberalism, say the american people don't know what's in their best interest. and it's our job to tell them. >> katrina, are you disinhearted by the poll numbers? >> no. i think there's so much expectations on the glorious day
