-- the White House.
-- -- Hey there are a lot of considerations that -- when once you decide you want to do -- speech to congress.
And you have to deal with congressional schedules.
And other there there there are other there are many other factors here.
And and obviously one to -- of many -- on one channel many.
Was not enough reason not to have the speech at the time that.
That we decided haven't met -- That's working man you just heard was white house Press Secretary Jay Carney saying there was at.
Absolutely no connection between the Republican presidential debate set for next Wednesday and the president's request to give a speech that very same day at the very same time.
And this is power play I'm Chris -- wall thanks very much for being with us today and we have with us today -- it is our great -- Honor and our great privileged to have with us today one of the -- that the president was trying to preempt.
And that is former house speaker Newt Gingrich who's making his power play did you today thanks mister speaker for being with us annuity.
Now you think Jay Carney thinks that at the White House they said.
Cash -- are -- having this feature than any debate on Wednesday heard anything about them I guess we go ahead and do it.
In that the the analyst comment that He was -- Made me think that that car and maybe one of the best actors in America.
I mean here they are in -- situation.
-- remarkable humiliation.
Where the president's staff.
Just plain messed up so badly.
That they didn't even realize you technically couldn't under congressional rules.
Have a joint session was even.
So tell me how that works well why that is so it's fascinating isn't it when you watch this you really realize how really incompetency.
Obama team has.
In order to have a joint session which brings -- house and senate together.
You have to pass a joint resolution.
So it the house passes which they -- -- fairly quickly.
He goes to -- any one senator can stop.
Eventually it worked out yet to pass this this can take a day or two okay.
You can't -- can't issue the invitation.
Under our constitutional process under the law you know you don't invite the president to you've done this.
The -- house doesn't come -- until 6 o'clock on Wednesday.
So the president is asking kind of give a speech even in big comeback which is physically helpless they couldn't get in secession.
Establish a quorum passed a resolution.
Get it to the senate have the senate agreed to it.
Bring it back.
Issued the invitation -- the Secret Service up -- -- the house which is John Boehner points out in his letter takes two or three hours.
I mean this is an act -- such were amateur incompetence.
That you have to wonder almost three years -- real presidency.
How He could have staffer I mean who knows this little about a constitutional system so you hold that this speaker of the current speaker.
Was not playing politics was not running an angle here that.
That quite actually John Boehner would not have been able to effect an invitation in time this president requested meaning He could have had a joint session.
You know you He might -- that it will hold a Republican caucus you wanna come and talk to us informally.
You know but to have a joint you know -- -- -- that if Obama doesn't seem to realize he's not a monarch yeah.
Did the whole point -- the American revolution was to create laws to you to establish a president who operates a little off and said that the first part of constitution.
Is the legislative branch the second part is the executive branch.
And the president has to operate within a framework of law.
And so here.
To get this when you do X -- he's got to actually ask the congress and this is what truly bothers me.
With fourteen million unemployed and eleven million underemployed -- -- -- looking for work 25 million Americans but wanted to -- some workers.
You would have thought -- during his two weeks.
He would have picked up the phone -- And He would pick a phone call McConnell He tells us is gonna come -- a bipartisan speech I can't find any Republicans ought to.
How do you give a bipartisan speech in any sense this is truly sad email out last -- to his supporters which I guess.
Entitled a frustrated I take -- you're not one of the supporters here on the list I'm -- -- okay.
There's LA and that's what they're doing but it but -- -- -- -- frustrated by Barack Obama and you open it and it's as well really question we'll.
Michelle Celeste you were excessive certainly notice that you know wouldn't you think the fourteen million unemployed are more frustrated.
Well mystery guy wrote in the power play which unit of foxnews.com -- left politics today.
I've heard in there they've -- potential slogan for Obama quite well.
He too is very disappointed in how everything has turned out that He shares the impatience disappointment that it is sort of a bummer.
And it's a tough place to go and as -- -- and then.
How the president got to this moment where even just giving a speech.
Even just going and what's supposed to be a freebie for president it is the best setting political setting in the world it is this August house.
The cheers American flag it is -- it is the the greatest venue for president because it lacks the tomb like quality of the Oval Office.
It's alive it's -- you've got this thing and they managed to trick that in some way by being too cutesy that they didn't they do this beautiful federated.
What does -- do you talk about the -- like quality -- office.
Ronald Reagan filled the Oval Office.
When Ronald Reagan addressed the nation from the Oval Office people watch it because it was going to be a substantive speech.
Delivered well by a serious man -- seriously.
-- inability to project He has has made the Oval Office -- with his own personality.
Works striking to me about all this we -- looking -- -- Reagan commercials history you know.
Reagan enters in the middle of the Carter recession.
With 13% inflation.
23% 21% between 2% interest rates gasoline rationing every other day based in the last number you look -- And by October 1982 the Reagan recovery is being done and -- millions of jobs -- And so Reagan runs for -- -- slogan and the key players are looking at is leadership that's where.
Now unless something really dramatic happens in the next year and a half.
Obama could run under the leadership that is failing but we're frustrated together and it's just look at it and here's what makes it really said.
The American people deserve a lot better.
When you have this much unemployment near this many businesses hanging on those communities and you know small businesses are much tighter.
And big business big business is -- to be worldwide companies.
They're doing pretty well -- like she did pretty well worldwide.
But people who are small businesses in America dealing with a devastating effects -- -- -- frank bill which is killing small banks killing small business killing -- They're out here Nolan had anybody because of -- and unknown cost of Obama here.
And we need to do something now because what people need to understand is this economy's been staying right here at 9%.
There's a grave danger is gonna go down wanna.
And you could be a ten or eleven or 12% -- And I think this through September ought to be adjustments for reopened to be -- -- for real you've got to have things that can be bipartisan.
But that can be bipartisan and -- principled way.
-- -- and I should point out Internet dad.
The speaker had a jobs plan before having jobs plan was schools back in May you had a job playing now everybody's alive -- jobs when Jon Huntsman has jobs plan.
Iran has got a job -- president's got to -- plan that's out there.
Can you sketch out for us.
In some ways it's simple pleasure thank you can understand your what you've what you've been called network address to anybody wants to go to my website it was is new doesn't own despite first named.
But at least you -- it would follow the Reagan rule.
Which is four principles.
Praise and and and encourage entrepreneurs and business owners cut taxes cut regulations build American -- So first instantly dropped the class warfare stuff.
I think if you class warfare and -- bureaucratic socialism community food stamps not jobs right now Obama's gonna run for reelection as the best food stamp president in American history.
I'd like to be the best -- present much so one.
-- people who work -- people who invest make them feel good about themselves.
Because if you feel good about yourself you take more risks you hire more people you grow bigger company.
Varied job oriented tax cuts very straightforward one.
Freeze the current taxes and nothing goes up in 2013 it.
To go to zero capital gains so that hundreds of billions of dollars -- -- create businesses and factories and dramatically expand the economy three -- incorporated.
And one half percent ironically for liberals.
We're not getting any money out -- General Electric 35.
Because there are lots of attorneys to make sure -- use every local.
-- twelve and a half of fire -- the attorneys and we'll actually get a check from General Electric so you'll you'll you'll raise more money at twelve and a half.
And there's a trillion dollars in offshore profits it's not coming home it's currently about six or 700 billion would come home at twelve and a half percent.
And and invest in the country.
Next to you you want to go to a 100% expense that means that.
Whether you're a farmer or factory or -- doctor or an office if you buy new equipment you write it off and one year.
Very specific -- we want to make the American worker the best most productive most creative work in the world that -- you wanna have them have the most modern equipment.
Finally the abolish the death tax permanently it is -- culturally immoral -- -- -- as if you were conceived and virtual life some politicians against your money.
But it's also destructive woman jobs because right now for a successful family firms spend years working with their attorney and with -- CPA.
To avoid taxes we'd like -- was from the same number of years creating new jobs and growth.
That's tax deregulation -- -- -- frank bill which is killing small banks killing small business and killing house.
Repeal sarbanes Oxley which has been a disaster of paperwork.
-- has really slowed down new startups.
Reform the Food and Drug Administration created 21 century FDA which has a very specific job.
-- Zion national laboratory and accelerated getting to the patient in the marketplace health will be the biggest part of the world market.
We want Americans to have the health jobs creating all the new health breakthroughs.
Today you can't do that as the FDA is so anti jobs and anti progress so you need a fundamentally new 21 -- -- -- Replaces the criminal.
Protection agency with a brand new model number -- solutions agency that is cooperative in the case economics and He -- environment and into account.
Because it is a major inhibitor.
And have litigation reform which would make America more desirable place in this.
Finally we've got to go to American energy.
Think -- business committee of twelve this as they would if they wanted and that's.
This super committee there's no point did you find one point five trillion dollars in debt was which is being released -- deficit is really bad idea.
And we're gonna talk more about that in our next segment.
But but that what they ought to look at first is how to get more revenue out of energy.
There's a trade bill was senator -- senator Warner to Democrats which would allow Virginia to develop energy offshore gas you know.
50% of the -- of the -- 37 I have to Virginia twelve and a half -- to.
Infrastructure and to land conservation.
The house Republicans -- -- -- the -- cornered them Democrat bill passes intact Newman.
Sent it to the senators -- -- Harry Reid.
A unit -- -- -- bill by two Democrats supported by the way by Tim Kaine of former democratic national chairman.
It increases jobs -- increases federal revenue it uses American energy is that Iraq or Iran or Saudi Arabia or Venezuela.
It'll be very -- the country will be about 80% -- lose their ritualistic.
And it's such a nice precedent for how you create more I want more revenue through -- economy.
Not through higher taxes is higher taxes will lead to a smaller economy so there's a jobs package that begins the process.
I think you could turn this economy around -- The fall of 2012.
Really well sure when Reagan turned it around -- He took over in January of 81 and by October of 82.
The system was really work and it was an and I think that -- what you have now is worse than what Carter did.
Just -- Dodd-Frank.
Would liberate small banks to help small businesses and help housing and you see -- start to turn around and days.
-- -- last question on this job speech -- Where will you be when it comes time for the president's network address is going to be -- -- of this we a lot of fun we're going to be a New England College in New Hampshire in Manchester.
We're going to be.
Watching the speech.
And then we're gonna discuss the speech and ask the audience reaction really afterwards.
You know -- know what's the pop through you're moving so wait a minute you're gonna be like a little Frank Luntz and a little bit of Al Michaels it's going to be hello it's.
I think it'll be very anxious I'm not from my own opinion run and months ahead but I don't start and let the audience -- joins -- -- New England College.
Al -- hoping they'll come early enough that they don't see the Wall Street view the president as champs and the number one -- -- -- measures.
Do you think it'll work and isn't big enough.
For an economy is us.
There's a great danger to the president has got problems hoopla he's gonna do with tiny trivial idea is -- that even if you pass that would turn the economy but the -- Adobe.
They'll be political rather than practical.
So will be -- New England College -- -- will be a lot of fun.
And to -- -- chance and I'm an outline.
And then later in the evening at halftime and appropriately approach I would do a conference call for all of -- supporters around the country now a brief them on my thoughts about the U.
Can you can you explain to the Internet why you are Green Bay Packers fan we -- we we you it elucidate that if -- -- -- -- Last two different things cut through the real reasons very personal when I was a graduate student into -- My best friend and that is what was a big Allison O'Connor and every year when they -- championship.
We've got a case of beer Coke and beat.
Pull -- out for me a really nice game for me was about okay as I.
I call it activist party are and his admitted his amazing life.
In addition my son in -- from Sheboygan and my wife is from what -- those kinds of so we have very.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
