That are nice dot -- I regret -- That tomorrow night Donald the president's going to give an address to do it joint session of congress his critics say that is nothing more than a campaign speech He denies it.
I'm curious number one do you think it's a campaign speech if so what could He say it -- do tomorrow night that would change your mind.
Well it will absolutely be a -- -- Campaign speech and really who can blame them I think he's probably out there -- as far as He can campaigning defectors.
He's made many many speeches over a short period of time and just continues to make speeches but we get -- substance out of it so everyone -- saying there's not much he's going to be doing -- to see what happens but.
I mean what he's doing is campaigning pure and simple.
-- in a perfect world let's say that He -- a democratic house a democratic senate.
And of course is Democrat could He turn the economy around and create jobs within fourteen months can -- -- the economy that quickly.
Look Greta what people seem to forget -- He handles that He could have done everything He wanted to do what He had the democratic -- democratic senate he's the president.
And -- city focused and Obama care and after a public everywhere just look at vacation nothing happened.
Because everyone was so -- the Republicans took over the house and now you've got this situation that is really untenable.
And there's a lack of leadership so you really had all of that everything that you just ahead.
He had and could have made those things -- it -- frankly could have raised the debt ceiling without having to go through what I went through.
And it would've been a lot easier I -- said there would have been a revolt in the country.
But it would have been a lot easier cramps so everything that you just said He had any missed his opportunity.
So in your mind and and and light of that are you saying that it's too late in your mind that He is and -- he's had -- chance Alessio let's his way up the fourteen months in your life and get a new president.
Or are you saying that there's still something He could do to serve redeem himself in terms of job creation between now and November a four in November next year.
I guess you can say there's always something you can do but I think the -- just fed up with speeches I don't think they want to hear his speech.
I think they want to see action not speech.
But in terms of analysts say let's say that that He had squandered the time leading up to this but that He had fourteen was when -- look at the economy and you look at different policies that could be in invoked.
Out is it possible to create significant number of jobs in fourteen months.
I think it's going to be very hard because even if things really work out well it takes a year for them to -- -- It's just doesn't happen the following day it's not like -- -- the following morning everybody's working.
It takes a period of time to kick in the policies have been so far overall everything's been so far off whether -- His dealings with other nations whether it's the fact that so many other nations are taking our jobs in manufacturing.
Our goods and manipulating their currencies and somebody different things are happening that is bad that this country.
When you look at OPEC what they do with a fuel it's you know part of the problem that we have is that every single time.
We -- to make a comeback in terms of the economy OPEC does a number -- -- that we have nobody that knows how to talk to OPEC.
And believe me it would be very easy.
What happened with the stimulus bill 2009 was just not a good idea -- whether -- outside influences or was it there -- follow through.
Why why did -- why did -- stimulus bill 2009 that the president of pushed and embraced why has it been so ineffective.
We weren't ready for our people aren't ready they talk about digging let's start digging -- there was nothing to date because it takes a long time in this country to get permits even if your government.
If you want to build something in this country takes years and years and years.
You have to go through sometimes an environmental prod the I mean just I do it I mean I have to go through -- You have to go to environmental problems and environmental criteria that make it almost impossible to -- quickly let alone go to -- in some cases you can't even -- so they just weren't ready.
In terms of the projects and probably most of the projects and many of the projects were wrong.
Is that something that's.
Obvious to someone in the building industry that's something that the president's advisor should've known February of 09.
Or -- or some sort of you know expectation that they could bypass that are -- other types of projects that would some -- rev up the economy.
Well somebody like me would know what because some of the real estate investor -- a builder -- build buildings I build things and I understand how tough it is to get anything built even if you know what you're doing.
And a lot of people don't know what they're doing particularly get permits.
And it respected the other factor that we have in this country -- our regulations if you wanna build a city in China.
You can build a very quickly to literally a city I mean -- -- one day and two weeks later they're building.
If you -- -- build a city here people Atlanta Q what was the last time you saw a great bridge being built in this country and did you go to other countries like.
China like some of the OPEC nations did you see bridge after bridge I mean -- so lined in gold.
See things that you haven't seen.
Since we were a great nation I mean we were doing that many years ago but.
We don't do it anymore where raise our bridges are falling down our roads are falling apart it's very sad.
Is that there something new -- that the president's.
Responsibility or -- all those regulations and is that somebody should've seen is that -- insurmountable.
We will forty was signed being -- is that congressman why it's so difficult and shouldn't that have been anticipated.
Well you have to -- regulation but you also have to stop building Iraq you have to stop building Afghanistan.
I mean we're spending trillions of dollars in Iraq and Afghanistan and every place else and in the meantime He can't drive and our words because they have -- -- -- from.
And our bridges are falling down and you know basic infrastructure and so I don't call that.
Stimulus because I'm a big believer in rebuilding this country but I don't call -- stimulus -- say something that has to be done you can't have branches were engineers are going up and saying.
This bridge is dangerous for cars -- and -- conceded recently where bridge came down killing people so I don't even call that -- cycle that.
Putting our country back into shape.
Is that element -- baptism -- the -- -- study history to figure out where to go is that something that that they should've known at February 2009.
Or not and is that sort of is that ideology and the part of the president is at night but today is at bad advise deadlock or I just did a lot out -- up.
It's a lot of things Greta but it's certainly something that they should have -- -- -- something they could have planned for but in order to do it maybe that's capacity special regulation that.
And this would be a regulation that would let them -- because.
People stop projects.
For the wrong reason -- -- if you're building a certain project -- a certain type of breasts you can not.
Build -- if you -- building something that.
You want -- desperately that's really needed and a certain type of creature is in the way.
You can't build it it'll never get built a new baby talking about thousands and thousands of jobs that you may be talking about something -- very very important for the vitality of the nation and you can't build itself.
They have to do something about the regulations they have to do something about the environmental protection because.
You know it's wonderful I'm a great environment -- believe -- -- really I've gotten many environmental awards.
But it's got data control you can't build in this country it's almost impossible I have a project -- Jones beach.
In New York City losing jobs losing everything you can't get -- built it's impossible to get it built they don't let you build the rules.
-- the regulations.
Are absolutely insane their ridiculous.
Donald so if the -- some Democrats say that the reason why the stimulus didn't work in February 09 is because it wasn't big enough I taking reject that.
I don't view that as to guess what we need in this country is in destruction and we built schools and Afghanistan.
They've blown up we built them again they -- We build on the third time and then in the meantime we can't build a school in Iowa we can't build a school in Brooklyn New York we can't build schools in California.
We don't have money to build schools and yet we're building -- three or four times over in Afghanistan and Iraq.
In places that frankly as soon as we leave they're going to be a disaster it's a disaster waiting to happen what you see what happens as soon as we leave Iraq.
Ranch could take it over they're gonna take over the oil -- as sure you're sitting there so we're spending our money on other countries where rebuild -- would nation building.
You call it nation building -- nation building the only nation it would not building as our -- Thank you thank you very much --
