But what doesn't say to you that even Democrats aren't on board with this thing.
I would say the president hasn't done his homework He was not well thought out He didn't lay the ground work that He should've laid.
Both with the Republicans and Democrats He should've called leadership down way before He had a plan to announce the American people to make sure you had the kind of support He needed.
In a bipartisan effort which He talks about but never practices.
And I think that's what your missing here is the president actually doing his homework and making sure whatever He was and they're announcing -- something that was doable both in the house and the senate.
Is it doable to you -- I'm just so sick of hearing this and yet I am about Obama supporter but it's the same broken record story over and over again how in the world does He not go and any leader knows -- beef especially now with the world watching.
How does He not go make sure that He has the support that He needs before he's introducing things that He doesn't have -- support for so now got a -- dollars and -- again in Washington DC come up with nothing.
Yeah I mean Joseph Lieberman actually and in Connecticut had said that He would supported however.
That money that He wants to to saving taxes actually gonna go into new revenue not cutbacks in and don't people need to see cutbacks -- -- they they compromise on the taxes being -- too did the million dollar -- earners and up.
But but what Americans really want to -- is is spending cuts in order for us to get our debt back to where.
It needs to be in order for more jobs to happen and into you know I would -- -- its lumps together as they.
Americans who are paying attention it.
Want to see that if Americans are paying attention actually get what's going on with this economy I think wanna see that.
But what we got in Washington is one big we're not getting anywhere party going on there all the time we talk about a week after we get for -- enough enough.
It's brat I don't what does the president have to do at this point moving forward.
Because it doesn't -- everything's working.
He needs to show some leadership.
-- -- -- how have to show well what He has to do is yet to be presidential and use the power of the presidency He could call all the leaders down to the White House He could call up to Camp David.
And lock them up at Camp David and -- we're gonna get a job -- build on fellas.
You now we gotta figure out how we're gonna do it and this president loves that the title He loves the playing He loves that motorcades but doesn't like to work.
And if this president just would roll up this -- and corps leadership down walk amid a room and nobody gets out and -- it until a deal is done and then they come out together and announce the deal.
America needs first and foremost jobs in the way you do it is you cut spending just like you do when your home.
You can't afford a car this year so what do you do.
You forgo the car but this president wants everything and unions are are beating a -- Because that they know that they're gonna be needed in 2012.
But -- a big stimulus it's another reward to the union's first stimulus that is not going.
The filtering down to main street it's going to all these pet projects and as the president said there were so many shovel ready jobs as as He thought there work what.
There are now okay they -- the bill includes a five point 6% surtax on millionaires is what I was talking about a second ago.
Any a lot of that money is being used on new spending.
Does the president not get the fact that that that Republicans first -- are gonna slam this down a second penalty budget cut -- gets up buddies that He thought you -- -- -- -- everybody's running for office right now so sure He gets that He already knows that.
When Republicans take that stance will that help them or hurt them you know in the in the next 1111 helicopters and opposed to -- are actually up for reelection as well.
Democrats that are running in red states and they know that if they vote for this that they're not gonna get reelected -- also -- -- what what does that say about our entire political system right now.
In this year I think the the American public right or left anywhere in between we're all being held hostage to an election year.
Music are being held hostage to an auctioneer -- -- our our president Obama's decisions solely based on getting himself back in the White House and when He help -- absolutely.
But here's what do you make them happy Americans.
Best interests at heart and He -- has his yet clearly trying to to reduce the unemployment rate and when He says -- the unemployment rate is extremely high He doesn't.
He doesn't intend on that's not what I said -- I'm asking you I'm not saying that you said that I'm saying.
It seems to me that if it's all politics and He doesn't necessarily mean what he's saying when it says that He wants to do certain things such as reducing them -- -- unemployment rate for example.
Brad I think I think this president it's all about his re election.
And it is reelection He will tell his base He will tell his supporters that what.
In Italy and when I am not reelected I'll be able to do so much more.
Then I was able to do my first term -- I don't have a headache and the worry about being reelected and that's the most dangerous Obama as far as I am concerned as Republican.
Because then he'll have a licensed it to do so much the damage this country.
We've got to stop and now we've seen enough damage and this president is holding the American people hostage to his own reelection efforts that's clear.
But having said that there's some blame to go.
Around in the house the senate because we know the entire house is up.
For reelection and about thirty senators -- pre election so certainly they're thinking in their own selfish interest as well but.
