• With: Lou Dobbs

    DOBBS: The unemployed, those who've given up. I mean when we go to that level, we're talking about 23 million Americans who are either out of work, underemployed or who have simply given up working.

    O'REILLY: Ok but when they give up working they get $40,000 in entitlements.

    DOBBS: Yes.

    O'REILLY: Did you see the poverty piece we did last night where everybody has got colored TVs and air conditioners and washer and dryers?

    DOBBS: And God bless. But what the left has got to do is accommodate their own thinking to new circumstances. They talk about joblessness or poverty as if it were analogous to 1965. It's nonsense, it's quite a different thing. What they should be focusing on is public education because that is the great equalizer in our society.

    O'REILLY: But they can't do that if they admit that the reason the education is poor is because the family unit is disintegrated.

    DOBBS: Exactly.

    O'REILLY: And there is no parents pushing the kids to learn and they just dump it on the teachers.

    DOBBS: And the Republican Party has got to -- come to terms.

    O'REILLY: They don't care.

    DOBBS: Well they may not.

    O'REILLY: It's not their issue.

    DOBBS: They may not because they are not doing it.

    O'REILLY: No they are not doing it. I mean this should be a big campaign, and we're doing this campaign, that the family dissolution, particularly in the poorer precincts, both black and white and Hispanic. Right it doesn't matter what color you are if don't have a dad.

    DOBBS: Exactly.

    O'REILLY: And your mother can -- you know standing around with four kids and no skills.

    DOBBS: And the left always turn that discussion into a racial discussion.

    O'REILLY: Always, I mean or an anti-poor. You're anti-poor, you're against poor people.

    DOBBS: Yes really bad. Bad people.

    O'REILLY: All right Lou Dobbs, everybody.
