You can now make Obama your co-pilot with this miniature bobblehead version of our great leader! Put dashboard Obama in front of a teleprompter and it will make just as many inexplicable decisions as the real thing.
GLENN: The President this week will be in Copen hoggen.
PAT: I thought we weren't going to
GLENN: Having some Häagen Dazs ice cream. Hmmm?
PAT: Just, is it reversed now? It's not Häagen Dazs?
GLENN: What are you talking about?
PAT: It's Häagen Dazs and Copen Häagen Daz hagen? Really?
GLENN: It's always been Häagen Daz and Copenhoggen. You didn't know that?
GLENN: Do you watch TV ever?
PAT: Well, yeah.
GLENN: I mean, Friday we heard Tucker Carlson. He said Copen hoggen. Today driving in I heard Martha MacCallum. She said this:
MacCALLUM: Right now a major conference is getting underway today in Copenhagen, Copen hoggen, however you want to say it.
PAT: I want to say it Copenhagen!
GLENN: No, it's Copen hoggen. It always has been.
PAT: All right.
GLENN: It's Copen hoggen.
PAT: All right.
GLENN: It's Häagen Daz. That's what you're thinking, I'll have a bowl of Hagen dozz from Copen hoggen.
PAT: That doesn't sound right.
GLENN: Anyway, so Copen hoggen, they are having a climate change summit and it's a good thing that they are bringing 15,000 people from all around the world there. I would think maybe a conference call would be
PAT: Well, it seems more climate friendly.
GLENN: Yeah. How about, how about you have like you know those meetings that they have at, you know, like those meetings they will have at the AMC theatres or something where you are like, all go to the movie theater and you can watch your teleconference thing, you know. You know how they do those things? They also do birthday parties as well.
GLENN: That would be probably better, don't you think?
PAT: Well, yeah, I think it would be more efficient.
PAT: Less CO2. But see, the way they are doing it now with the 1200 limousines and the 140 private jets and counting.
GLENN: But these are green jets.
PAT: Of course they are. They are only spewing 40,000 tons of CO2, which is about the equivalent of 30, 30 smaller countries of the world combined, in a year.
GLENN: Yeah, but this one's going to save what are those countries doing?
PAT: Yeah, they are doing nothing.
GLENN: In a year they are doing nothing.
PAT: Yeah. These guys must spew all this carbon because they are going to fix the problem eventually.
GLENN: Sure, you know.
PAT: Not with this agreement because this agreement will do nothing.
GLENN: Now by the way, speaking of doing nothing, remember that guy who's completely harmless called oh, he's our regulatory czar. Oh, Cass... oh, yeah, Sunstein. You know that guy, how he's just, he's harmless. Who did we hear that from? Oh, we heard that from Bennett.
PAT: Oh, Bob Bennett. Yeah, that's brilliant.
GLENN: Yeah, we heard Bennett.
PAT: Brilliant, brilliant man. Senator Bennett, Senator Hatch was okay with it.
GLENN: Senator Hatch also was okay.
PAT: Was pretty much okay. Look, he said he wouldn't
GLENN: He said, he promised us that he is not going to do anything crazy, and he's just a regulatory czar. What harm could he do? I say he's the most dangerous man in America in an administration like this. Why? Well, it was announced over the weekend that President Obama's not going to go to Copen hoggen. Well, he is going to go but he is not going to go for the full week. He was going to go at the beginning. But instead he's going to go for the end.
PAT: Well, he's got to pick up I think he's got to first pick up the Nobel Prize in Oslo, doesn't he, in Norway?
GLENN: No, he is going to do that on a special trip.
PAT: Oh, okay. A special trip?
GLENN: I think so. Isn't he?
PAT: I don't I mean, you would think he would combine because he is so concerned about the
GLENN: No, no.
PAT: intense heat that we're experiencing it.
GLENN: No, don't worry about it. One plane? Well, actually four planes when the President travels. But four planes? That's not going to make a difference. That won't make a difference.
GLENN: It's other people that anyway, he's you know, everybody's talking about Copen hoggen and what's happening there and healthcare. But the EPA is doing something today. They are saying that, they are declaring that carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant. Again let me just explain in case you don't know what carbon dioxide is. This is air (inhaling). This is carbon dioxide (exhaling). That is a dangerous pollutant.
PAT: Every time you breathe out?
GLENN: Every time.
PAT: It's a dangerous pollutant?
GLENN: That's a dangerous pollutant.
PAT: You are poisoning people.
GLENN: The Environmental Protection Agency is paving the way for the government to require business that emits a carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases to make costly changes in machinery to reduce its emissions. Even if congress doesn't pass the pending climate change legislation, the EPA action to regulate emissions could face what is Cass Sunstein's job again?
PAT: Regulate, to regulate things.
GLENN: I don't see how this is related. Anyway, EPA action to regulate emissions could affect the U.S. economy more directly, more quickly than any global deal linked with the Danish capital of Copen hoggen where no binding agreement is expected. Many business groups are opposed to EPA efforts to curb a gas as ubiquitous as carbon dioxide. Definition of ubiquitous would be basically, we're all doing... (inhaling)... this. So it's everywhere. The EPA endangerment finding, quote, could result in a top down command and control regime that would choke off growth by adding new mandates to virtually every major construction and renovation project according to the Chamber of Commerce. The devil will be in the details. No, no. The devil is in the administration. In fact, I believe he holds several titles and several offices. We look forward to working with the government to ensure we don't stifle our economic recovery. Hmmm. Hmmm. Wonder how they are going to do that while regulating... (inhaling)... this.
PAT: That's, it's a fine art. It's a science really. Not an exact science, but they can do it. They can shut down business while keeping the economy healthy and vibrant.
GLENN: No, seriously.
PAT: Don't you have every confidence they can do that?
PAT: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: Every concept. And the interesting thing is we're just watching, we watch, we got the news channels going while we do the show and they were just talking about the snow in Sacramento today. So can you imagine how critical this is that they are taking care of this incredible heat because it's snowing in Sacramento tonight for the first time since 1976. Can you imagine how cold it would be in Sacramento if not for global warming?
GLENN: It would be terrible.
PAT: It would be at 50, 65 below right now.
GLENN: Well, colder than that.
PAT: Probably 150, 160.
GLENN: With all the carbon dioxide that you are putting out right now?
PAT: 230 below, 400, 500 degrees below zero?
GLENN: Going to be amazing, going to be amazing.
PAT: Snowed in Houston, Texas over the weekend.
GLENN: Of course it does. It only proves how hot it is.
PAT: It's so hot, it got cold.
GLENN: Yeah. Have you ever heard of freezer burn? Hello, dummy.
GLENN: Thank you.
GLENN: So my serious question, and I would love to hear an answer: How does this administration or this congress, both sides of the aisle, how do they get re elected or get out of being pariahs when climate change, people understand now. Search for the latest poll on climate change. When they don't believe it. They don't believe in manmade climate change, they don't believe that we can and if they do believe it, they don't believe that we can effect it. So when you regulate through the EPA and Cass Sunstein which, by the way, again, Republicans, I know he gave you his word he is not going to do anything radical. Thank you for that. No, seriously. Boy, you guys are protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States. No, you were on that one, you were... or not. When they are choking our business to death, when jobs are being lost left and right. You know we were just talking about the healthcare debate off the air and Pat said, they are saying that 14,000 people a day are losing their healthcare. And I said, probably right . How is that right? Add it up. 365 days a year. We've lost over four million jobs since in the last ten months. We've lost over four million jobs since this President took office.
PAT: So extend that another two months and that's about the 5.1 million healthcare coverage losses that we experience in a year.
PAT: From people losing their jobs.
GLENN: Right. They are saying people losing their healthcare. No, people coincidentally the same number of people are losing their jobs! When that gets worse, and it will, when that gets worse, when we have created a system that is, it's impossible to create new jobs, when you have a system that is controlled centrally in Washington, when you have spending so far out of control and taxes so unbelievably high and healthcare that is nowhere near what Americans are used to, how do you expect to get elected again? I would love to hear someone's exit strategy. When they jam these things through, which I believe they will, when they jam them through remember, healthcare is lower in its approval rating now than Hillary Care was. And Hillary Care everybody knew politically was a, it was a pariah. You had to get away from Hillary care. They are pushing it through! When they do that and cap and trade or the union card check bill, or it will be all of these will be a compromise. But the result will be exactly the same. When you do this and you are shipping our wealth overseas and people are experiencing Great Depression like poverty, how do you stay elected? I'd like to know. People are, people are about to completely wake up on healthcare. They are about to completely wake up on cap and trade and the global climate thing. You have these, all of these scientists that are playing games and doctoring all of their information and wrecking people's reputations because they speak out against it. I mean, doesn't any of this sound familiar? Tea party people, isn't that what they're doing to you? You speak out against it. They dismiss you. Then they smear you. Then they call you Holocaust denier or, you know, these signs with the Nazi posters. Everything else, they are doing the same thing! It is the same pattern over and over and over again. And Americans are waking up.
Let me tell you something. I'm going to be ringing a bell for the next year. I'm going to be ringing a bell on this debt. I am going to tell you, I'm going to show you the exit plan. I'm going to show you how you protect yourself as best I can on this economy. But I'm going to keep ringing this bell and ringing this bell and ringing this bell. Well, when it happens, it will be exactly like it was the last time I rang the economic bell. And except there are a lot of people that believe me now. There was nobody that believed me. I rang the bill. Nobody believed me. As soon as it started happening, people went, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute, what? And my ratings went up and people started listening and started saying, okay, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, this guy isn't a complete and total joke. I ring this bell for the next year and these things start to come down the pike. And I don't know how long it's going to take. It could take two years, could take two years, could take five years. I have no idea. But they're coming. And when they do, how are the politicians going to get around. Because people will know the truth. And the truth is, we've been set up, gang. We've been set up by these politicians. They want power, they want money. They have sold us a bill of goods. The whole time they are telling us, no, it's deficit neutral. The whole time: No, it won't destroy healthcare. The whole time: It will help build jobs. They're lying to you! And it will come out. It's only a matter of time, and I think it's going to happen quickly. When it does, what's their exit strategy? How do they save themselves? I don't have an answer. Every answer I come up with I don't like. I'd like you know that there are politicians. There are politicians. There are consultants. There are the Karl Roves of the world. There are the James Carvilles of the world. That, no, triangulate, triangulate, triangulate, leave yourself an out. There is no out. There is no out. There is no triangulation going on. Why? What's the strategy? Are they this stupid? That's what I think that's what people like Karl Rove and James Carville will say: Well, they just think that it's going to work. I don't think so. I don't think so. I'm not a Harvard educated, you know, book carrying, book reading kind of guy. So what do I know? It ain't gonna work. And Americans in their guts know it.
I was talking to a friend of mine who's a financial advisor, a guy who actually put me up against the wall a year ago. And he said threw me up against the wall: "I used to make fun of you. How did you know?" I said, I know because I don't look at it like a sacred society like you do. I look at it with common sense. Nobody in your business is doing that. "Oh, we've got systems. Oh, you don't know. We've got systems." I talked to him and I said, what are people saying now? He said, "Glenn, people know. They know in their gut something's not right." What's your exit strategy, White House? What is the exit strategy? I can only really come up with ones that just say, well, we are going to demonize and we're going to split the country apart even more and we're going to call all these people that speak out against us even worse names than we already call them now. I can't think of a way other than grabbing power or grabbing people. Help me! I want to know.
Nobody puts all their eggs in one basket as a politician on something this risky and just says, well, it's going to work out, absolutely, positively. What's Plan B?
