Frank Luntz: Obama’s Going On A “F**k You” Tour

REGAN: “Our next president is not liking what our outgoing president is saying. Trump doing by most to disregard the many enflam tri president Obama statements and road blocks. Thought it was going to be a smooth transition, not! And that is breaking with tradition. Frank, good to see you. I can’t remember any kind of transition quite like this one. Have we ever seen anything this disagreeable?”

LUNTZ: “The worst transition you have to go back to 1932 in the midst of the Great Depression, Hoover was not happy that he lost in a landslide and was very uncooperative with Franklin Roosevelt. There’s a wonderful cartoon of Hoover looking absolute sulen as fdr road from the capital to the White House in sheer joy about taking over the country, probably the most difficult we’ve had in the last 50 years to be the Jimmy Carter to Ronald Reagan transition. Again it was a time of hostage taking, difficult economic circumstances and Reagan’s philosophy was different than Jimmy Carter’s but the key point is this is not really about making it difficult on Donald Trump. If trump did this great tour of the country, Obama seems to be doing — I’ve been trying to figure out the right language so I don’t get fined by the FCC, an F.U. Tour. In that he is so critical. I think we’ll all be okay with that.”

REGAN: “I think so but that sort of, that captures it in your view, huh?”

LUNTZ: “Yes, what he said about Hillary Clinton and her campaign and drawing that contrast. What he has done to Israel and to Benjamin Netanyahu, that there are people that he has had political difficulties with and those — by the way, Republican members of the house and Senate, the people who he’s disagreed with over the last eight years he’s gone to great pains to draw a contrast between the things that he says and the things that they have done in a way that makes me think he’s trying to settle scores before he leaves and that’s not presidential particularly for someone like Barack Obama who is such a great communicator.”

REGAN: “What effect does it have on the nation?”

LUNTZ: “It has no effect because we all are divided. The people that love Barack Obama will be offended by what I just said. The people that dislike him intensely will think I haven’t gone far enough. There’s no way to satisfy anyone at this point. This for me will be my last appearance on fox for 2016, all we are looking for is someone that can bridge that divide, bring people together and my hope going forward is that we will speak a little bit less and listen a little bit more. We will answer less questions and ask for questions.”

REGAN: “I’m with you on that one for sure. One thing that seems to have caught Donald Trump’s eye was President Obama’s statement that had he run again, had he been permitted to run for a third term, he would’ve won. Could he have? And regardless of that, was that really the kind of thing you want to say?”

LUNTZ: “It is — it’s not the thing that you want to say. I don’t believe based on how Americans feel about the country, only 30% think the country’s headed in the right direction. It’s very hard to win an election when possess mix is that high. That most people feel 78% feel we are weaker today, that the world is a more dangerous place than it was, that they feel less secure today. How do you win an election when three out of four voters think that your foreign policy has essentially failed? It’s a huberous and I understand why he did it because he doesn’t want to be held responsible for Hillary Clinton’s loss but by the same token when you asked questions about the condition of the America today versus eight years ago there are a lot of those questions that the public says no, not only are we not better off, I’m for afraid, more anxious, more fearful of the future and trump’s election has begun to turn that around.”
