tv   The Last Word  MSNBC  February 7, 2011 11:00pm-12:00am EST

11:00 pm
o'donnell starts right now. we'll see you back here tomorrow night on "the ed show" on msnbc. have a good one. the u.s. chamber of commerce spent millions of dollars campaigning against president obama's health care reform but today they against president obama's health care reform, but they interrupted his speech with applause. not as much as o'reilly interrupted him yesterday. >> thank you. i'm here in the interest of being more neighborly. >> president obama's monday begins with a standing ovation from a major opponent. the u.s. chamber of commerce. >> he is walking into the lion's den. >> president obama tries mending fences with big business. >> this is clearly the bill daley white house strategy. >> i top the encourage you to
11:01 pm
get in the game. >> the chief of staff, then cozying up to the chamber. >> that's a really bad idea. >> where does that leave progressives? howard dean will explain. >> liberal democrats like myself thinking with the president and the chamber of commerce about how to create jobs. >> you have the chamber of commerce spending millions to run against the democrats and the health care legislation. >> applause the day after the president suffers nonstop bill o'reilly interruptions. >> you will see how often i had to interrupt him. >> he asked the question do you think you have changed as a person, he should let him answer. bill didn't let that happen. >> it's not that he did it as president. he knows my style. >> i saw the president's eyes go -- >> howard fineman on o'reilly versus obama. >> the best question is -- does it bother you that so many people hate you? >> who asked who?
11:02 pm
>> they said it at the same time and o'reilly said jinx. >> how did you get there? >> sarah palin has even dumber questions than o'reilly. >> we're need to find out who was behind all of the turmoil. we want to help them. i have a journalism degree. >> joan rivers thinks sarah palin needs help and joan will get the last word on this. >> is it hot in here or is it just me? >> good evening from new york. i'm lawrence o'donnell. i don't blame bill o'reilly for predicting his interview before the super bowl would be "the most watched interview of all time." when you run a three-ring circus, you say anything to get people into the tent and you never care about being proven wrong after the fact. o'reilly's interview never had a chance to come close to the
11:03 pm
record set by barbara walters when she interviewed monica lewinsky while 74 million of us were hanging on monica's every word. o'reilly did have a chance to tell us something we didn't know and get the president of the united states to say something new. something news worthy. on that score, o'reilly failed more miserably than anyone who has ever gone before him. he definitely set the record for the most empty presidential interview of all time. how did o'reilly do? interrupting sure helped. o'reilly's relentless borage of interruptions eliminated any possibility that the president might wander down a path that led to something entering. watching the live interview, it was impossible to keep track of how many times o'reilly interrupted. turns out it was more than i thought. a lot more. >> mubarak, is he going to leave
11:04 pm
soon? >> you get all the groups together -- >> what we can do, bill is say that the time is now for you to start making a change in that -- >> he does that. he does bad things about the united states. i'm sure you are aware -- >> the muslim brotherhood a threat to the usa? >> they are well had-organized and -- >> the muslims? >> what i want is a representative government in egypt and i have confidence that if egypt moves in an orderly process, we will have a government in egypt -- >> that was a tough void. the president said the health care law is unconstitutional and it's close. are you prepared for the law to go down? >> we had 12 judges that just threw the case out.
11:05 pm
the notion that -- >> it was -- >> i don't want to refight the battles of the last two years. >> yeah, but -- >> no way r one way or the other. >> if you have ideas -- >> they are going to wait until it goes to court and hope it gets thrown out. my question is are you prepared if it gets thrown out. >> i am not prepared to go back to a day where if you have a preexisting condition -- >> yes, but -- he is a left wing guy. >> the "wall street journal" would paint you as a left wing guy. >> that's what this is. >> that's like quoting the "new york times" -- >> do you deny their assessment and that you are a man who wants to redistribute wealth? >> absolutely. i lowered taxes for the last two years -- >> as a champion do you redistribute wealth, why do the most of the people not support
11:06 pm
obama care? >> it's close and evenly divided, bill. how we rebuild a competitive society when we are losing jobs -- >> some people say that and some say it's an intrusion and you guys want to take over basically decision making for america. >> if you health care you like, you keep it. >> i know, i listen to you every day. >> and i listen to you. we will all be responsible for our own health care -- >> a lot of americans feel you are a government liberal who wants to intrude on their freedom. is it true you are moving to the center? they moved you a little to the center. >> now our focus is not on refighting the battles of the last two years -- >> do you not focus? >> i didn't move to -- >> you evaporate moved anywhere? you are the same guy? >> i'm the same guy, but making sure that ordinary americans -- >> i don't feel like -- what's
11:07 pm
the worst part of being president? >> worst part of the job is first much all i have a jacket on on super bowl sunday. phi wasn't president that wouldn't be happening you can't go to the corner super market -- >> somebody watching every move you make. what is it about the job that surprised you the most that you weren't prepared for? >> the easy stuff gets solved by somebody else. by the time it gets to me, you don't have easy answers. you don't have the best -- >> you have a wave of complicated problems? >> complicated, yes. you have to make the best judgment -- >> do you think you have changed as a person since you have become president? >> if you ask michelle who knows me best or my closest friends, i think they would say i'm the same guy as when i came in -- >> people say you are much more guarded. >> when you are in this job, everything you say can affect
11:08 pm
markets -- >> i know that, but on a personal level say say he doesn't have the -- he's not as spontaneous as he used to be. precouped. >> that's probably true. for all the arguments and debates between republicans and democrats -- >> does it disturb you that so many people hate you? >> the people who dislike you don't know you. >> they hate you. >> the folk who is hate you don't know you. what they hate is whatever fun house mirror image of you that's out there. they don't know you. you don't take it personally -- >> you don't ever? >> no. >> doesn't it annoy you sometimes? >> i think that by the time you get here, you have to have thick skin. >> who is going to win the game? >> once my bears lost, i don't
11:09 pm
pick sides. >> you don't care? >> i want a great game. >> i enjoyed talking to you. i disagree with you and i hope i was fair and i wish you well in the next two years >> joining me now is howard fineman from the "huffington post." always a pleasure the president said at the end of 41 or 42 interruptions. not a single -- 43 interruptions and not a single completed answer. i listen carefully and i didn't learn a thing. did i miss anything? >> no, you didn't. i thought the president was going to answer what is the worst part of his job that he was going to say i'm in the middle of it right now. bill o'reilly was try to get some kind of minute out television and the president handled it well. they were trying to dru this out before i came on the air and they were cool about it and knew
11:10 pm
what to expect and the president had been interviewed before. david axelrod knew the show. the president was determined to smile no matter how many times he was interrupted. >> was that the best way for the president to handle it? just smile at the rude guy in your house and hang in there? >> yes, i think so. i talked to pollster who is said yes. some fair-minded people, independents if there any out there. it's polarized politically probably didn't like the president of the united states being treated in that fashion. but this wasn't about the president. this was an interview about bill o'reilly and his whole mo is about making everything about him. the president put up with him because he has to speak to all the people. it wasn't a record-setting audience, it's still a big audience >> why hasn't bill o'reilly asked sarah palin what it feels like to be hated? >> this was a piece of political
11:11 pm
theater. this was not journalism as we understand it. this was political treater and an obligation to the president to be like a state of the union that every president is interviewed before the super bowl by whatever network has the super bowl show. the president had to do it. i think they grit their teeth and did it every much as the president might be gritting his teeth over to the chamber of commerce. this is part of the american landscape. you do it and try to smile. the only news made was that the president said he listens to bill o'reilly. >> by the way, best answer ever to what does it feel like to be hated given by the most romantic character in the history of literature when he was asked that, he said i love hatred. imagine how it feels to face the volley of a thousand angry eyes, the vile of envy in the froth of fear. obama should have gone there. >> i think he did fine. when the president smiles that
11:12 pm
smile, that covers a lot of situations. i think he did it very well. i think the president gave as good as he got. that's the best he can do this n that situation. >> you are part of the biggest news of the day at the "huffington post." the sale to aol. how does this advance and is it the final step in the advance of arianna huffington's plan to take over the world? >> i think she has many more things to conquer, but the idea is we are one of the biggest news sites on the web and we are going to double or triple our audience and more resources and be able to extend the conversation. the key to the "huffington post" is not just the news gathering, but the conversation about the news. we will go back to one of the originateors of two-way communation and try to remake it with our input. >> howard fineman from the "huffington post" and msnbc who
11:13 pm
is hated by no one. today president obama addressed the united states chamber of commerce. yes that, chamber, the who spent millions trying to defeat democrats in the last election. former governor howard dean joins me. later the road to ruin. sarah palin said that's where president obama has the country headed. she says this while trying to invoke the memory of ronald reagan. she doesn't quite have the reagan optimism thing down yet. . ♪ in here, inventory can be taught to learn... so products get routed to where they're needed most. ♪ in here, machines have a voice... so they can tell headquarters when they need refilling. ♪ in here, money works smarter...

11:15 pm
as the country waits for the economy to rebound, we focus on retail sales and gdp. in a sign we are on the rebound, the american society of plastic surgeons said there were 13.1 million plastic surgery
11:16 pm
procedures last year. that's a 5% increase from the year before. in another stroke of bad luck for the white house, this economic news came out after president obama gave a speech to the chamber of commerce. we will talk with howard dean about that speech and later, speaking of plastic surgery, joan rivers tells us the story behind the story of her big super bowl ad. my mother froze everything. i was 18 years old before i had my first fresh bun. the invention that i came up with is the hot dog ez bun steamer. steam is the key to a great hot dog. i knew it was going to be a success. the invention was so simple that i knew i needed to protect it. my name is chris schutte and i got my patent, trademark and llc on legalzoom.

11:18 pm
i strolled over from across the street and look, maybe if we had brought over a fruitcake when i first moved in, we would have gotten off to a better start. i will make up for it. >> today president obama met with an organization representing and paid for by the nation's largest corporations. in the 2010 mid-term elections, the cheam ber expressed displeasure with the president's agenda by pouring tens of millions into republican campaigns. with an eye on 2012, they are seeking to build a bridge to the chamber. the outreach comesa the a time when the ceo and the president's audience are riding a wave of income and quality the likes of which we have never seen. back when business-friendly republican richard nixon was in the white house, ceos were really, really rich. they were making 27 times more than the average worker.
11:19 pm
now they are obscenely rich, paying themselves 262 times more than the average worker and they don't work any harder than they did in the 1970s. president obama took the opportunity today to gently suggest that the ceos might answer reinvesting in america for a change. >> today american companies have nearly $2 trillion sitting on their balance sheets. i want to encourage you to get in the game. >> many progressive groups are not pleased by the latest display of "sucking up to wall street." the agenda project released this today. >> you deserve to know when your elected officials are meeting with lobbyists. >> we deserve to know when elected officials are meeting
11:20 pm
with lobbyists. >> we deserve to know when your elected officials are meeting with lobbyists. >> joining me now is former governor howard dean. thanks very much for joining me. >> thanks for having me on. >> there is a lot of worry from progressive that is the president is sucking up to the chamber and wall street. is today's speech an indication that they should be? >> i don't think so. this is a really interesting meeting. first of all he gave a business-oriented speech and he has done that before. that's appropriate at a time when jobs are in trouble. he talked to them about investing which they haven't done as much as they should. this is also not wall street. these are the guys that do create jobs which wall street pushes around paper. these guys had nothing to do with getting us into this
11:21 pm
recession that wall street was probably the largest factor in. it's not the same thing. the other point i make, it's an interesting political deal. the president gets to look like he is in favor of jobs and move to the middle. the chamber disgraced itself in the last election cycle and became an apostle of the right wing the kind of ads were an embarrassment. a lot of chambers, local chambers stopped paying dues and corporations, large corporations didn't want to be associated. the chamber has to rehabilitate itself and had a long way to go. they were the most partisan organization in the last election. so this is a very interesting thing. if i were the president, i'm not sure i would have been interviewed by bill o'reilly, but i would go to see the chamber. the chamber gets to be rehabilitated as well. >> i thought there was a huge omission in the speech that i want to get to. the president talked about all
11:22 pm
the things he was trying to do to make america a more business-friendly place for these guys to do business and he said this. >> now, to make room for these investments in education, infrastructu, government also has a responsibility to cut spending that we just can't afford. that's why i promised to veto any bill that is large enough with earmarks. i proposed that we freeze annual domestic spending for the next five years >> to pay for the investments, all he talked about was spending cuts. he did not say one word about the top income tax bracket that we had that big fight over in december. the president made a deal with republicans, but said at the time he still wants to increase it. they only extended for two years he has to convince the country that we need to increase it and
11:23 pm
the people were say thing right in front of him. wasn't this the place that to make that case? >> yes, it was. >> by paying their fairer share of taxes. >> i think that was a mistake on the president's part. he got a lot of kudos for mentioning the fact that he wasn't going to extend the bush tax cuts again. he did not do that here. this was a little bit of tell them what they want to hear and leave the other stuff out. that i think was a mistake. the business community has in the past been socially much more responsible than they are now. i agree with this inequality stuff. it's not a left-right issue. the fact is that when social inequality gets too large, you have social instability. we are at a position where we are in trouble. i wouldn't say we can be egypt next week, but people are disillusioned and don't trust
quote
11:24 pm
any institutions very much. that's why. i think the president missed a chance to say that in front of the chamber. he would have gotten a lot of credit if he had. >> he would have given brilliant regulation and how it can be beneficial to business and beneficial to the consumer and i have never heard a president describe that so smartly. i think the same intelligence can be brought to the top bracket. let's go. you mentioned the o'reilly interview. let's listen to a piece of the o'reilly interview yesterday about income redistribution. >> do you deny that you are a man who wants to redistribution wealth. >> absolutely. absolutely. bill, i didn't raise taxes once i lowered taxes over the last two years. >> governor, this is a thing you can see he is afraid of discussing what an increase in the top rate actually does. this for me is -- i feel it's why democrats so frequently lose the tax debate.
11:25 pm
you can see they are afraid of it. >> that was an unusual thing. the president doesn't often get mouse trapped by the likes of bill o'reilly. he did get mouse trapped that time. he laid out a proposition, that is we shouldn't have redistribution. that's what governments do is redistribute. the argument is not whether to, but how much we should redistribute. if you didn't have it, we would be back to magna carta with the king. it's to make sure capitalism works for everybody and not for the people who run rough shot as they do in washington and as the chamber has by throwing money around. he missed that one. o'reilly laid out and framed the proposition and the president didn't see the frame and answered the question straight up. no, it's government's job to redistribute and the question is how much are we going to? we wouldn't have social security and medicare and build roads. there would be no more
11:26 pm
neighborhood in america with a paved road. thanks for joining me pa. >> thanks very much, lawrence. >> most leaders provided a united front with president obama on the world stage about egypt, sarah palin once again goes her own way and insists the president should tell us who the next leader of egypt will be. later in the rewrite, the surprising truth about how the big winner at the super bowl was actually sports socialism. who's your someone? campbell's healthy request can help. low cholesterol, zero grams trans fat, and a healthy level of sodium. it's amazing what soup can do. how can expedia now save me even more on my hotel? well, hotels know they can't fill every room every day. like this one. and this one. and oops, my bad. so, they give expedia ginormous discounts with these:

than a week after saying she would like to be ignored by the media, sarah palin, the most recent vice presidential candidate who will never be president sat down with pat robberson's network. she slammed the handling of the crisis in egypt. here's what she said. >> not real enthused about what it is that is being done on a national level in regards to understanding all the situation there in egypt. in these areas that are so volatile right now and because it's not just egypt, but the other countries where we see up risings, we know now more than ever we need strength and sound mind there in the white house and need to know what it is that america stands for so we know who it is that america will
11:36 pm
stand with. we do not have all that information. >> palin's interview came after she spoke friday night at the california ranch formerly owned by president reagan. during the remarks, she lashed out at the white house on policy and green jobs. >> this is not an economic policy. it's not an energy policy. this is diversence and social engineering. my fellow americans, this is not the road to national greatness. it is the road to ruin. >> joining me now, palin translator, alex wagner. thank you very much for joining me tonight. >> thanks for having me. >> as much as i want to hear from you, i want to hear more from sarah palin. >> it's hard. >> let's listen to something we said about president obama handling the egypt crisis. >> this was at 3:00 a.m. white house phone call and it seems many of us trying to get the
11:37 pm
information from our leader in the white house. it seems that that call went right to the answering machine. nobody yet has-nobody yet explained to the american public what they know and they know more than the rest of us know. who it is who will be taking the place of mubarak. >> all right, all right. i want to repeat the last line. surely they know more than the rest of us know who it is who will be taking the place of mubarak. she seems to have a religious faith in the ability of the cia to know everything and predict the future. >> right. >> which is kind of how we get ourselves into weapons of mass destruction and problems and things like that. she actually thinks we have this thing under control. we know what's going to happen. it's called a crisis because we don't know. don't have to tell you. >> she apparently thinks that
11:38 pm
american citizens can call 1600 pennsylvania avenue and get the president on the phone. this is i think we all acknowledge -- >> she thinks there is an answering machine there. >> it's obama. i'm not home right now. >> this is a wide scale protest that for all intents and purposes does not have a figure head. the idea that we are somehow going to have a velvet curtain that drops and we find out that mark salter, author of o, presidential memoire is in charge of this revolution is fomenting chaos in egypt. it's preposterous. it speaks to sarah palin's idea that this is part of a vast liberal experience against her and the conservative who is want to know how the government works and want a smaller lower case g government. >> this is a new thing for me and not a subject i was an expert on a few weeks ago. let's listen to what she said
11:39 pm
about the muslim brotherhood. >> who are is going to fill the void? mubarak is gone. one way or the other, he is not going to be the leader of egypt. that's a given. now the information has to be gathered and understood as to who it will be that fills now the void in the government. is it going to be the muslim brotherhood. we should not stand with that or by that. any radical islamist is not who we should support. we need to find out who is behind all of the turmoil and the revolt and the protest so that good decisions can be made in terms of what we will stand by and support. >> does she go to the christian network because the questions on fox are too tough? someone on fox might point out that the american government take sides. >> the white house maintained
11:40 pm
this line from the beginning. it is not america's position or place to determine who will be the next leader of egypt. this is part of a longer trend with the arch conservative wing of the republican party that uses the word muslim or islam to foment fear. she is definitely doing that. not to say they have not done things that are controversial, but her sort of default and her positioning of them as a natural inheritor to mubarak is unfair. >> here's what she said about how she would handle running for president. >> i would continue on the same course of not really caring what other people say about me or worrying about the things they make up, but having that thick skin and a still spine knowing that what is needed in america are those things that ronald reagan did espouse and what he lived. not worrying about what the
11:41 pm
critics were going to say about me or my family or what it is that i stand for. >> thick skin? sarah palin? the most thin-skinned politician we ever had? >> this is one who hours earlier denigrated the presidency multiple times saying the president was an elite intellectual living in a far distant capital, a position she would like to have one day in the not so distant future. >> thank you very much for more palin translation. >> thanks, lawrence. >> coming up, controversial super bowl ad maker go daddy.com released the ever young joan rivers. joan will join us to talk about that racy ad in her new role as go daddy spokes model. why the super bowl, the most watched television event in america represents the triumph of a very unamerican philosophy.
