>> it is like she was raped because wanted it. >> a gay porn star from the '70s. >> yes indeed. jeraldo does have a porn mustache from the '80s. why are we in a courtroom suddenly? >> i don't know. >> but jeraldo did show the [ inaudible ] for the first time in public. >> did he? >> we're done with the courtroom show. move on. >> i'll have to examine by briefs. >> it's the john and pam show. >> hey stephanie hey everybody. >> hi, john. >> i just want to let you know equity has come to a little country town in the rural parts of ohio. we have a young man back at -- last year 2011 we wore a shirt from the day of silence
that jesus was not a homophobic, and the principal told him he had to take it off and this that and the other things. and the district court and everything here in ohio granted the young man $20,000 and that there and everything on settlement that his first amendment rights and his belief and everything was violated. >> good. yay! can i talk to pam. i'm sorry i was missing something in my life, and it's pam. >> how are my favorite three people in the morning? >> how is my favorite two people. >> i was going to be quiet, but i got to talk to my baby in the morning. >> that's right. it's the john and pam show! we need a jingle. >> that poor child, stephanie, they ridicule him in this place.
he came out that he was gay in school, and the kids accepted him. it was the adults. >> yep. and here is a side fun fact, pam. jesus was not homophobic. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> this is my favorite addition of the john and pam show. >> thank you sweety. love you guys. >> speaking of the things that keep me up at night, i'm always -- [ fun-facts music ] >> oh. [ applause ] >> not only is -- the president obviously saying bain capital obviously fair game yeah corey, talking to you. but here is the one -- the analogy that drives me in insane mitt romney said we only bankrupted a few companies -- >> um. >> like all of them.
>> and how many thousands of people lost their job. >> and then he bringing up silindra. [ screaming ] >> are you saying that some businesses fail and some -- it's like. first of all it started under bush and the government has always invested in green energy like that. >> absolutely. >> i got to spend time with vann jones last week, so i am fired up about green jobs. expects are saying one of the reasons was the cost of components went sky high -- >> oh god. >> yeah. yeah, but whatever. >> the components used in solar cells. >> thank you. >> so it's not his fault that any of the businesses went bankrupt that bain took over
really? he had nothing to do with any of that. >> no. >> but the president is solely responsible for silindra not making it. again, this started under bush. he has always talked about green energy and green jobs. >> uh-huh. >> anyway, and the point of that whole thing is we should be investing more in solar. >> absolutely. >> businesses fail for all kinds of reasons but in terms of bain capital they immediately -- >> why does the media let him get away with using silindra. the president said it best yesterday. he said there is a way that bain capital specifically practiced it that is all about wealth creation for the people at bain. >> absolutely. >> and yes staples succeeded, but there are a ton of companies
that didn't. >> private capitalism is a tool and it's the people that withit. >> mitt romney is an example. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] [ nbc "nightly news" theme ] >> president obama said bain capital is fair game. >> that's right. >> if romney can point out bain's successes, then obama can point out the failures. >> he said he has no problem with private equity terms in general. >> but from bain's point of view, firing union labor in favor of cheap overseas labor is the answer. >> they fired them all, and then decided they could higher them back at half of their wage.
>> if they are not union. [ romantic music ] >> how about that? >> i feel bent over a koala changing station at the airport. thank you. [ laughter ] >> obama is portraying romney as a corporate raider. which is true. he bankrupted some of the companies bought by bain. the mission of private equity people is to gain profit for themselves. he said that's part of the role of a lot of business. it's not unique to private equity, but a president's job is to worry about everybody not just some. the reason this is relevant to the campaign is because my opponent his main calling card for why he thinks he should be president is his business experience. >> and he is talking about
refiring the people he fired at a much lower wage. >> yeah. doesn't olympicings get some money as well. >> yeah. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> obama was asked about comments by carry booker and he said book ere is an outstanding mayor. when booker first released the hostage video said it is reasonable for obama to talk about bain capital. well, thank you. >> is that something you can douche out? wow. i like that a lot. >> the president said i think it's important to recognize this issue is not a, quote, distraction. corey. i'm just going to look in the

it was profitable. bain took it over. bain charged them $11,000 for nine years. >> listen, buddy we say it every day, but we are sitting in a company that bain piled a bunch of debt on. i feel like chris christie sat on us every day. as buddy said that's what you do to maximize profits. it's not about helping people and create jobs. sue in rockwell maryland, you are on the "stephanie miller show." >> good morning, everyone. no one in the tea bagger party will have to worry about brain tapeworms because they don't have any brains. >> awe! >> stephy you do not understand republican math.
romney created jobs after he left bain because that's a plus. he claims no responsibility for jobs lost after he left bain. and obama only gets a minus. it's only a plus if you are a republican, and only a minus if you are a republican and double if you are obama because he is a bla. >> yeah. so the one business that didn't work that president obama bet on, he's a complete -- whatever. >> whatever! >> bla. >> that's the point. >> yeah. >> okay. the president yesterday. >> your main argument for how to grow the economy is i knew how to make a lot of money for investors, then you are missing what this job is about. >> yeah so silindra is the one

shattered, people were screaming and my body was just destroyed on impact. when i woke up, i didn't know who i was. i had to relearn who my family was, who my friends were, how to walk, how to talk, i had to get fed through a tube in my stomach. i had to like like a baby up until about 16 years old. wearing diapers, you guys, at high school. just from 14 years old till now i'll be going on my 23rd surgery. my legs hurt from the second i wake up to the second i fall asleep. my pain is soo deep but yet i am so lucky to be alive. i am a huge advocate for safe teen driving. we need to do something because if we don't an estimated 11ause teens will die every day on our nations roads. support the standup act, save lives. join the movement to help prevent teen driving deaths at facebook.com/save11 all have in common? sam adams! last year we brewed more than one new beer every week.
problem. i was taking warfarin, but my doctor put me on pradaxa instead to reduce my risk of stroke. in a clinical trial, pradaxa® (dabigatran etexilate mesylate) reduced stroke risk 35% better than warfarin. and unlike warfarin, with pradaxa, there's no need for regular blood tests. that's really important to me. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have a bleeding condition like stomach ulcers, or take aspirin, nsaids, or blood thinners, or if you have kidney problems especially if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all medicines you take any planned medical or dental procedures and don't stop taking pradaxa without your doctor's approval as stopping may increase your stroke risk. other side effects include indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. pradaxa is progress. having afib not caused by a heart valve problem increases your risk of stroke.
ask your doctor if you can reduce your risk with pradaxa. ♪ >> announcer: stephanie miller -- >> i knew it all along, she is still the same irresponsible train wreck that she always was. >> yep.

things -- >> sure, and they denied the money to solyndra -- >> they didn't deny the money. they don't oak these things overnight. and my point is mitt romney should not use solyndra as an example of see -- businesses fail winners '5 losers yadda, yadda. then how come none of his failures count? >> no -- >> that's off limits to talk about the american pad and paper or the steel company or all of the companies that got sucked dry and went under. >> i understand that. look at general motors obama cost more jobs with that bailout -- >> no he did not -- gordon -- that is a right-wing talking point. the auto companies had to cut in the beginning, but the auto rescue saved millions of

four years over mitt romney's record as governor any time of the day. okay? >> yeah. >> the new talking point is 20% of those companies that romney took over with bain capital they failed only 20%. so that leaves 70-something percent that actually succeeded. this is why he'll all over the map with how -- when he went against ted kennedy, it was 10,000 jobs then it was 100,000 jobs and now it's thousands -- >> and the point is the reason for cutting jobs is to put more money in bain's pockets. and sometimes it made them run out of business. >> which makes it fair game if you are going to say you are a job creator because of bain, then it's fair game. >> yep. yep.

brought to you by spiriva handihaler. if you have copd like i do you know how hard it can be to breathe and what that feels like. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open a full 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. and it's steroid-free. spiriva does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens your throat or tongue swells you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. does breathing with copd weigh you down? ask your doctor if spiriva can help.
