9:00 pm
the factor, it's a great word! again, thanks for watching tonight. i'm bill o'reilly and please remember are the spin stops right here because we're definitely looking out for you. ♪ >> and welcome to the special edition of hannity, we're live from manchester, new hampshire and in just under three hours from now, the first votes cast in the first in the nation primary right here in new hampshire. and we'll be back live at midnight, eastern, to watch while they're cast. and first you'll hear from presidential candidates newt gingrich and rick santorum and plus, analysis from former clinton advisor dick morris and much, much more. it was a busy weekend for g.o.p. contenders as they went head to head in two nationally televised debates and my next
9:01 pm
guest, speaker of the house put his sights on mitt romney. >> can we drop a little bit of the pious baloney. the fact is you ran in '94 and lost and that's were you weren't in the senate with rick santorum and the fact is you had a very bad reelection rating and dropped out of office, and on the stake for 200 days preparing to run for business and didn't have the citizenship when you thought about what to do and running for president while you were governor, and you've gone all over the country and out of state consistency and reentered politics and happened to lose to mccain as you'd lost to kennedy and you've been running for kennel for years and years and years so this idea suddenly citizenship showed up in your mind. level with the american people and you've been running since at least the 1990's. >> sean: and joining me now from the campaign trail here in new hampshire is presidential candidate newt gingrichment before we get to that exchange. one of a number of kind of testy exchanges and you're
9:02 pm
smiling, i see, and i guess no bad blood. now, rick santorum. >> no, no, i'm here. >> sean: what? >> i'm here at concorde, run by lori sandburg my state-wide chair and we're going to watch the national football championship and we're excited, sean, to be with you. >> sean: this is far more important than any championship and i think it starts after midnight after our second airing. let me ask you this first, you apparently had an issue with some ron paul supporters here in ran chester and had to cancel an event and rick santorum had a problem with occupy wall street and pretty contentious debates this weekend, what do you think is going on? >> i think that our challenge was with occupy wall street people and i've generally found that the ron paul people, while they're sometimes noisy, they're pretty civil and pretty decent and some of the occupy wall street people frankly a touch of an a ann anarchyism in them
9:03 pm
blocking people's right to free speech. we decided it wasn't worth risking some kind of big confrontation so we frankly decided to just skip past that particular event. unfortunately-- >> let's talk-- all right. >> i think that we can't be held hostage by those kind of people. >> sean: talk about the statement you made, pious baloney and other exchanges with mitt romney? >> well, i've been trying to find the right phrase to explain what governor romney's technique is, and that is it is to sort of say something as though it sound totally correct except it's not true. and i thought baloney was probably the best way to capture all that. you know, he was in the middle of a riff that was just plain blony and old-fashioned terms i was born in central pennsylvania. and bob walker thought i would say lebanon baloney and i
9:04 pm
can't want to pick down to geographic locations. the fact this this is a massachusetts moderate, voted for paul songus, to the left of ted why he kennedy in 1994 and he repudiated the contract with america and repudiated reagan and bush and he called himself a moderate and a progress stiff and now to run around saying, i'm a conservative, a conservative. the time has come, give me a break and campaign with who you are and win or lose in a fair, straight way and don't go around making things up that aren't accurate. >> sean: let me ask you specifically about tactics and strategy as relates to the campaign. you've been in this game a long time. i was there in the room the night you became the speaker of the house. that's a long time ago. usually one of the first rules in politics is somebody attacks you, you respond immediately. you decided to wait.
9:05 pm
now you're certainly, your posture is far more forceful. why do you think you waited and do you think that might have been a mistake? >> well, look, it might have been a mistake if the world ended in, on january 3rd in iowa. but that was the beginning. i've described it as the opening treatment to the super bowl. i wanted it be positive and i ran a campaign being positive and i emerged out of nowhere being positive. at one point up to 37% gallup nationally and a huge lead being positive. along comes an avalanche of nasty, negative and often dishonest ads. 40% of the ads in iowa attacked me personally, went at me. and i wanted to say could i be positive and wanted to warn governor romney, over and over tore two weeks. this is not a good idea and he kept came back and said i needed to develop broad shoulders, if i couldn't take the heat get out of the itch
9:06 pm
can. well, i've been doing this for a long, long time and i'm quite capable of doing what needs to be done. he's set the terms of the campaign. i'm not going to run the negative ads which his super pac did, one of which got four pinochios from "the washington post" and four falsehoods in the 30 second ad which takes effort. but i'm going to draw a very sharp, very clear contrast between a reagan conservative and a massachusetts moderate. between cutting taxes by me, raising taxes by romney, between being pro second amendment rights by me, putting a tax on guns and being for gun control in massachusetts by romney. and i'm going to straight out contrast campaign, and he think in south carolina, people are going to decisively repudiat repudia repudiate. >> sean: you have a super pac that's now supporting you, mr. speaker, in the race against governor romney and
9:07 pm
they've got a 30 minute ad. apparently some type of bidding war that went on for this thing and what's interesting this came up during the debate over the weekend. and romney's response and answer was, well, i would expect barack obama to attack capitalism not my fellow republicans. and your response to that is? >> baloney. i'm for capitalism. i'm for honest entrepreneurs investing, i'm for people creating businesses. calista and i have created four small businesses in the last decade, i get it. i'm not for looting. there's a company that bain put 130 million into and took 180 million out of and the company went bankrupt. if they took 120 million out, with the company be there and 1700 families have a job. there's a difference between people who belled in the free
9:08 pm
market and people who loot companies, leave behind broken families, broken towns and people on unemployment and i think that governor romney is going to have to hold a press conference and he's going to have to walk the country through the things they did at bain because in three or four cases they don't look like capitalism. they look like rich guys looting companies, taking all the cash and leaving behind the unemployed. that's not the kind of free market i want to be part of. i want to be in a free market where everybody has a fair chance. that doesn't mean you always win. there are times you lose, there are times you go bankrupt. that's fine if the person who's getting rich is also taking the risk and is also suffering some of the consequences. it's not fine if the person who is rich manipulates the system and gets away with all the cash and leaves behind the human beings. >> sean: all right. when we come back, we'll continue and have much more with former speaker of the house newt gingrich and including he got a pretty big endorsement today. and i'll give you a hint.
9:09 pm
the last name was palin. and we have senator rk santorum ahead of the first in the nation primary and more from manchester, new hampshire, as we continue. we're glad you're with us.

9:11 pm
9:12 pm
>> welcome back to this special edition of hannity.
9:13 pm
we're live in manchester, new hampshire where in a few short hours the voters head to the polls for the first in the nation primary and coming to you again midnight eastern as the first votes are cast. and don't forget another dose of hannity tonight and we continue with former speaker of the house from the granite state, presidential candidate, former speaker newt gingrich. you got an endorsement today. todd palin. reaction? >> i was thrilled. todd palin called me and look, you're a populous conservative, you understand main street and you understand small towns and you're not part of the wall street gang and i want to personally endorse you. sarah said a couple of days ago she thought that mitt was the weakest candidate we could put up and i was francly thrilled to have todd's support and sometime down the road sarah may come along, but the reaction we've gotten from the tea party people all across new hampshire and all across south carolina, has been terrific, to having todd
9:14 pm
palin on the team. and it makes me feel good going into tomorrow and i think it's that extra boost we needed to really get us on takeoff here going into the primary tomorrow. >> sean: now, i did hear palin's comments, specifically about, well, he may not be the most electable, but polls have shown that mitt romney, governor romney is most electable and more importantly, there was an interesting 54% yahoo! poll after the meet the press debate this weekend that said romney is still not -- he's still not made its a the front runner, but, yet, he did well in iowa. he exceeded expectations and obviously, he's expected to do well here in new hampshire. what does it mean for south carolina and how would you define success for yourself here in the state of new hampshire? >> well, first of all, he spent five years campaigning in iowa and spent 20 million dollars and he got, i think, 66 more votes than he got four years ago. three out of every four republicans in iowa said no. so, in terms of ever getting
9:15 pm
to be the nominee, he's at 25%. in a state where everybody knew him and 75% said no. here if the suffolk university poll is right he's been dropping ten points in the last eight days through tonight and i suspect he's dropped more today and he could easily end up with two out of three or more people in new hampshire saying no. now, this is a guy who lives here, has been governor next door, has spent millions of dollars and campaigned here both in '07, '08 and again this year. if he ends up with two out of three republicans turning him down, i think he's going to be limping into south carolina and south carolina is not his kind of territory. he raised taxes, you know, just take his list of what he actually did as governor, and that's indefensible in south carolina politics. >> sean: what do you think, and south carolina interestingly has their own, i guess, history of voting very independently when it comes to these primaries, at least
9:16 pm
historically when you go back and you look at it. you said in an interview with david brody onset with us and will join us later in the program, that your goal was to slow romney down and to expose him. what do you want to slow down? i guess the momentum would be the obvious answer there. >> sure. >> sean: what do you want to expose? >> i just want people to understand that this is a massachusetts moderate who after claiming to be pro-life, ended up putting planned parenthood shall the largest abortion provider in america in romney care with no right it life group and state paid, tax paid abortion in romney care and appointed pro-abortion judges while governor and go through the list, he said he was for gun control and quadrupled the tax on guns so people in massachusetts pay $100 per year per gun. in south carolina, there aren't going to be many people excited about a pro gun control, gun tax candidate and
9:17 pm
that's his record. this is not theory, these aren't speeches. that's what he did as governor. i want to make sure that everybody in the rest of the country begins to understand, this is a person trying to run as republican nominee, who is the most moderate candidate in modern times. i think not since nell sn rockefeller have we had a candidate like this and i think it puts him in a very difficult position to get in the republican primaries beyond new hampshire. >> sean: do you still believe, as you once said, you didn't think that romney could win in the general election against obama? >> i think you'd have a very hard time. i would support him if he's the nominee. i think he's actually better than barack obama. but i think when you get into a debate between romney care and obama care, you get in a debate between romney tax increases and obama's tax increases. you get into a debate where romney was functionally pro choice and obama is pro choice, it's going to be hard to round up in party and if
9:18 pm
that's what the debate is looking like. >> sean: mr. speaker, thank you for being with us and we appreciate your time and don't forget that game is on late tonight. 1 a.m. eastern, and if you want to take a look at it. and dick morris is here with his predictions for tomorrow. and coming up next right after this very strong showing in iowa, senator rick santorum is hoping to pull out another surprising finish in the granite state when we come back as hannity continues.

9:22 pm
>> welcome back to the special edition of hannity. we're live in manchester, new hampshire. after his impressive second pleas finish, he lost my eight votes, maybe less. former senator rick santorum is hoping to keep it going in the granite state. and joining me is presidential candidate rick santorum. >> how are you doing? i promised you on the radio shoe he i h'd bring you
9:23 pm
something. you get your own rick santorum sweater vest. >> sean: if i came out and supported you, would i get jackets and hats? >> i do, this is a sweater. >> sean: and this is the afire of the campaign. we've heard from several retailers that sweater vest sales have gone up since i started displaying the sweater vest and. >> sean: you need to get a cut of this. >> goen 0 our website, rick and order a sweater vest. >> sean: you may have to be careful because bain capital may come in. >> this is not a business eventual and they will be made in america, by the way. >> sean: what do you think of the criticism of bain. legitimate as mitt romney was saying, you know what? i would expect this from democrats, not republicans. >> i tend to sort of agree with him. this is capitalism and you know, if there are things that he did where he abused taxpayer dollars, if there are things-- and i know there's one case where there's some question about that, there was some money available. but, the idea that we're going to go out and say that, you
9:24 pm
know, destructive capitalism, as well as constructive capitalism, we're only for one half. that's not the way it works. businesses fail. i'm in our mitt romney and his partners didn't go into business to lose money and fire people. but all of that is on the record. i don't think that as a conservative, and someone who believes in business that we should be out there playing the games that the democrats play saying somehow capitalism is bad. if he did a bad deal, that's one thing, let the press handle that. >> sean: the day after iowa i interviewed you and i said are you going to be ready for the inevitable attacks because you did so well? it's interesting to watch the attacks on you. you are a catholic, you're devout. you are a social conservative, and it's like you live in the 9th circle of liberal hell, like tim tebow because you're a social conservative. and intense level of attacks. what does that say about the country?
9:25 pm
>> i would say about some of the country. >> sean: a better question. >> most of the people in this country when, you know, your friend and my alan and eugene robinson attacked us for the difficulty that we went through in the loss of our son. i can tell you that we got front page story in the boston herald with one of the columnists there, you know, said let me grieve how i want. >> sean: a great way to put it. >> aen with that kind of-- boston herald, i mean, we've gotten a lot of, a lot of people coming up and embrace us saying, you know, these are cheap shots and these are people who are just angry and don't understand, you know, that politics is one thing, but crossing the line and doing things that are personal and hurtful, just has no place. >> sean: and alan, by the way in fairness, sincerity apologized and you were gracious and-- >> he apologized to both of us. >> sean: others did not. they did not apologize. >> they doubled down and.
9:26 pm
>> sean: conscious on their part. >> trying to paint a portrait because you believe in the sanctity of human life and cherish life from the moment of conception that it's somehow weird and ridiculed from it. >> sean: is it similar to tim tebow, and not trying to bring up, you're a-- >> the fact that he's come under so much criticism and likely put the other athletes if they're rebellious and in trouble, you know, they're the interesting character and. >> sean: yeah. i would say this, that the vast majority of the country is looking up to tim tebow and celebrating and celebrating the fact that he has-- it's not even courage. that's who he is. and it's not like he's doing harmful things. he's reminding people where he gets his grace from and i tried to do that on election night and give grace to the glory and people to the man who gives you the earn strength to keep going on and
9:27 pm
i'm sure tim tebow doesn't say, god ordains that i threw that touchdown, but gives you the personal strength to soldier on, which is really what the blessing is. >> sean: very well said. the person that is attacking you most intensely, both in iowa and here in new hampshire is ron paul and you're saying your betrayal and talks about the debt ceiling, earmarks, and he goes on and on. i mean, it's gotten pretty nasty. >> yeah, i mean, he's doing ro about. o calls on the state saying i'm pro choice and he's doing calls saying i'm against the second amendment. look, i can tell you that there's no one that's obviously been stronger on these two issues, in fact, ron paul voted against the manufacturers liability bill and remember doing lawsuits against the gun manufacturers and would have eliminated the second amendment right, eliminated itten he voted against barring the lawsuits that would have wiped out the second amendment defacto and
9:28 pm
having no guns for sale and i'm an a-plus rating with the n.r.a. that's are the false attacks and last minute, did it in iowa and didn't work, they're going to do it here and it's not going to work and people in new hampshire know that when you get the robo calls, they're false and you know, my record's out there for display and i'm very, very proud of it is. >> sean: what do you make-- this is a state it's expected governor romney would do well. >> lives here, that sort of helps. >> sean: how would you define success then for you in the state of new hampshire? and what is your goal and long-term plan after new hampshire? >> well, i think we've got an exciting plan that we put out there with this manufacturing plan that i've talked about, you know, in iowa and i've come to new hampshire and it's resonating. and a lot of folks saying, appreciate you're out there. this was a big manufacturing hub in new hampshire and we
9:29 pm
feel like our message is resonating here and we didn't have any television, no broadcasts and we started running television in south carolina, but we've run a little bit of cable, but not very much. and so, you've got perry whose he run several weeks of television, gingrich who has a union leader endorsement and running television. you've got ron paul and john huntsman has lived her and running television. we have, so far crept up from the 2 or 3 points we were in iowa into double digits, that's a huge advance in the face of that head wind. >> sean: let me ask you a national security question. leon panetta was asked whether iran was developing a weapon and he said no. and you, as president would take out the site-- the amount of cognitive. >> the amount of completely ignoring the facts.
9:30 pm
as you know, this administration has taken every reference to radical islam out of every defense document and denied that that is the source of the terrorist activity that's confronting this country. when they put the fort hood, major hassan shooting all of those people in fort hood? work mraes shooting. >> never mention of radical islam, muslim, nothing, completely sanitized and this is a living in a suspended reality. this building this nuclear facility next to where the-- their savior is supposed to come back and bring about this glorious victim for radical islam. why would a country that has one of the richest supplies of oil and gas, build a nuclear power plant? >> they've been fighting proxy wars against the u.s. and funding hezbollah. >> absolutely. >> sean: and a staeted goal and now confronting the u.s. in the straits of hormuz, and
9:31 pm
in venezuela-- >> and ied's have been klg our troops in afghanistan and iraq are manufactured in iran and the people have been trained in iran. these, the iranian government has been at declared war with us since 1979. they have been attacking our troops on a regular basis and we continue to pretend they're not a threat. we do that and we imperil the future, i believe, of israel and beyond that to a lot of areas of western civilization, including attacks here in the united states. >> sean: senator. good to see. >> thank you. >> sean: good luck and next monday the fox debate one week from today in south carolina. >> look forward to it. >> sean: let not your heart be troubled, great, great american panel live in manchester and also amid the exchange, the question remains who was the best candidate to take on president barack obama in november? we'll get dick morris' take

9:37 pm
the democratic demographic, and gays are democrat, pro choice, because single women tend to be democrats and they're joined at the hip in that connection, but i was struck by the two interviews that you must did earlier tonight and i was struck by the contrast. gingrich seems to forget that he's running for president. all he did was attack romney. santorum did it right. talked about how good he was. and ultimately, you know, you can't run as a prosecutor. kind of saying, it doesn't matter what you think of me, make this guy guilty. and i thought that was really what gingrich was doing. i thought it was a tremendous mistake. >> well. >> i thought when you see-- something positive to say. >> sean: i think it's obvious what happened. newt gingrich is angry at the romney super pac ads and he's honest about it and i'm now going to run a comparative ad
9:38 pm
and comparing and contrasting, rather than focus on that, i want to ask you, having been an advisor to bill clinton and helped him in a big way win reelection and you did all of his polling at the time and you were the one inventing try angulation at the time. you know, we got a lot of chaos that we're fighting. daily is out of the white house and a new book that says that michelle obama said it was hell to live in the white house and she didn't want to go there initially until the school year was over, that obama's, you know, policies and et cetera, et cetera, that she is an active participant and, you know, she's being cursed out by robert gibbs, according to these reports, because you know, they're afraid she's going to be too extravagant and spend too much money and might be out of touch. what do you make of the chaos that exists there for all the talk of the republicans? what do you think of that? >> i think that clearly the administration is in chaos because they basically know
9:39 pm
they're going to lose. when you look at the most fundamental measurement there is in american politics, party identification, 21% of the people that identified themselves as democrats, when obama was elected, have left the democratic party and about a third of them have joined the republican party. and he's losing independents, he's so clearly going to be a one-term president. the question is who would be the best candidate to defeat him? and i think it's pretty evident that romney would be the strongest opponent to obama, but it's not at all evident that santorum couldn't win and gingrich couldn't win. i think the only guy that probably couldn't win is huntsman or ron paul, but i think that most of them could win, but clearly, the one, the very things that make romney problematic in the primaries are attractive in the general election. >> all right, what, what are -- that's an interesting take. what are the expectations here
9:40 pm
in new hampshire? polls show that mitt romney is leading by a significant amount. he's doing well in a florida poll that came out today and he's at the top of the list, you know, fighting even very hard in south carolina. >> south carolina. >> sean: a state where it was not expected, like iowa that he would do particularly well in. >> well, he's got a 15 point lead in south carolina, a 10 point lead or an 8 point lead in florida and a 13 point lead in new hampshire. he could just sweep the table. the problem that his opponents have is that there are three of them, there's paul, san form and there's gingrich and the odds in this race is that the poll may get 20 and if the last poll is correct all three of them go to south carolina and all three of them go to florida and there's no way that romney is going to be defeated by three guys. >> if huntsman doesn't have as good-- if huntsman doesn't have a
9:41 pm
good showing, he's invested everything in, i'm sorry, right here in new hampshire. that means it's going to be perry and santorum and gingrich going to south carolina. and at that point, i would. >> and paul. >> sean: one or two of them may drop out after south carolina, is that a good bet? >> it's possible. paul will never drop out, he'll stay until the bitter end. >> sean: i didn't mention paul. but the point is right now, gingrich had a point. you asked two-thirds of new hampshire that's not going to vote for romney. if they got together behind one candidate there would be a chance to defeatham. what i think may happen, sean, in 1992 bill clinton's chief opponent was paul songus, he defeated him and left with jerry brown and coasted to the nomination. and in 1988, al gore, he doo --
9:42 pm
defeated him and coasted against jesse jackson and coasted to the nomination beating steve forbes, i think you maybe looking for a nomination where romney defeats gingrich and santorum coasts to nomination beating up on ron paul. paul may get twice as many votes as gingrich or santorum which effectively makes it a two way race between romney and somebody who can't possibly get nominated. >> sean: all right. dick morris, good to see you as always for being with us. it's time to check in with gretta van susteren, a sneak peek what she's got coming up. one little studio over. >> i don't know where you are. >> sean: many' in manchester, where are you. >> i'm in manchester and they told me you're down the street, but i even asked. we have a big show tonight and we have governor huntsman and todd palin is going to be joining us and has a big endorsement. and karl rove, and a great

[laughter] >> come op, what do you think? >> come on, coincidence? please, i mean, you know, we
9:49 pm
as christians, we say, come on, there's going to be something much greater going on here. >> sean: and 3:16 is god so loved the world that he sent his only bee gotten son and if you believe in him. >> and the verse that he quotes all the time and talks about, but i have to say there are certain camps out in the media won't talk about this specifically, the fact that he invokes the name jesus christ. if he was talking about god or talking about something generic, i don't think we would see this hull ballou, but-- >> i brought this up with rick santorum, it's like the 9th circle of liberal hell. if you say you're a social conservative and catholic and you don't believe in abortion, for some reason, that's a main focus of attack against him? >> look, i think he happens to be very good football player who happens to be religious,
9:50 pm
so what. >> sean: and i didn't know that santorum could play. >> you're talking santorum now, okay. so the point is that i totally disagree with rick santorum on a lot of his issues, but-- >> and why do conservative vilified the way they are. >> the way that you vilify liberals. >> sean: well, they deserve it, go ahead. >> here it is, the reason why people don't like tim tebow is that-- first of all, just remember the moment he lost that first game, right after all of those string of wins, and you know, all of these critics of tim tebow, see, looks like all of those prayers aren't helping you and all of a sudden he comes off-- >> and tom brady more. >> all of a sudden he finally gets this win and doubting thomases are like, okay, well, maybe, but he's not going to take the broncos to the super bowl. >> sean: what does it say about society? because if you're a rebel athlete, getting in trouble, hanging out at strip clubs, you're okay, you know? it's almost expected. here is a guy that is setting himself apart and he's
9:51 pm
ridiculed for being a good guy. >> there's a jealousy factor. the fact of the matter is this guy is an upstanding citizen and it drives people nuts. >> that's not true. it doesn't drive-- >> wearing it on his sleeve a little bit. >> so what if he wears it on his sleeves. most liberals, let him-- >> most lib raps-- liberals not. he's been attacked and laughed at and-- he did the pro-life commercial back in college. >> super bowl ad. >> super bowl ad, exactly. that drove liberals insane and now of course he's in the pros and they haven't forgotten the pro-life commercial and he's been successful with all of these wins and they're thinking, wow, he's going to be carrying that torch. >> sean: beat the steelers, let's be honest, a good team. and he's had more than his fair share of comebacks or overtime wins this year or last minute comebacks. >> and i think that connect his wins with prayer is a
9:52 pm
crazy kind of connection. >> sean: do you think it's crazy that christians believe that the very hairs of their head are counted. do you think that that sounds crazy to you? and that's a statement. >> it's in the bible. >> i don't happen to believe in the literal translation of the bible, but-- >> is that crazy? >> i believe you can talk to dead people and people think i'm crazy. >> sean: and you think you can talk to dead people? i've always known you're nuts. >> and what do they tell you, ellen. >> i don't know, a medium, i wrote a book with her and i believe that life is continuous and i believe in god and life is continuous so people think i'm nuts. >> sean: the question, does god have an event in human, the human experience? and to me, i don't know all the answers, but i look at universes within universes and the majesty of all of this and there's something greater than me. >> and hard for a lot of talk show hosts to admit. talk show hosts tend to think
9:53 pm
they're the center of the universe. go ahead. >> we know as christians, whether tim tebow wins or loses the game god sits on the throne either way and for tim tebow to lose a game, where is god? we know where he is. >> sean: i met him, a nice guy. >> and he know what he's looking for and as far as he's concerned it's not the game. >> sean: and it's all winning. that's what i teach my kids. we'll come back from manchester, new hampshire. more of the great, great american panel and we'll be back at midnight in new hampshire and cover the early votes and we'll see you at midnight eastern. how can you get back pain relief that lasts up to 16 hours? with thermacare heatwraps. thermacare works differently. it's the only wrap with patented heat cells that penetrate deep to relax, soothe, and unlock tight muscles for up to 16 hours of relief. that's 8 hours while you wear it, plus an additional 8 hours of relief

9:58 pm
staff that barack obama has gone through. other presidents, clinton, bush, they went through, say, four chiefs of staff in eight years and think of others, reagan, i think george w. bush had two chief of staffs during their presidency. >> sean: and daley, and-- >> and you know what, we're seeing here in the presidencies, there's a lot of chaos going on. and bill daley did not get along with the rest of the white house staff and democrats on the hill did not like him at all and i think there's some real concern going on as far as the flopping over to the republican side. >> sean: when we were downgraded, all the economic team left the sinking ship, they abandoned the east. >> it was kind of like the white house east and now central and shuffled off to chicago, like an amtrak or route there. here is the thing about this alice and wonderland thing, it's not a huge deal, but goes to, obama came in and talked about the politics that he was going to be different and you know, it wasn't going to be
9:59 pm
politics as usual and here we are with kind of a little mini coverup, if you will, so to speak and you know, why, why are they even doing that? i thought that was going to be a transparent white house and i don't know, and-- >> first of all, on the party, it was -- the white house said today it was for military families and didn't cost the taxpayers anything and it was done by individuals who wanted to give the military families a nice party. i see no problem with it. in terms of chiefs of staff, listen daley is a very talented man and i think that he is, you know, he can make a lot more money in the private sector, very talented and the white house chief of staff is essentially an administrator paper pusher job. but, ellen, democrats didn't get along with him. schumer and-- >> we'll be back at midnight tonight and that's the team we have left. before we go tonight. we want to remember somebody very special and dear to this program and over the weekend, tony blankly, former editorial
