I want to kind of get your view overall is an insider.
I mean if someone who's worked on campaigns are there any points last night that any of the GOP presidential nominees are -- Presidential.
Candidates for nomination can use against the president's life.
Think it's more of the same I mean it it it it it's obviously gonna raise taxes it's not about more government spending.
And I think two -- that.
That's what the fall campaign is gonna be about.
President has to make his case -- why he wants to do this and wants to move forward.
I Republicans will -- you know I don't think there was anything.
The tone was was was quieter than I think a lot of people expected.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Anybody who underestimates him is a fool.
You know we expect a very tough campaign and you -- and I think that he's not he's not tried to.
The waffle this is so this is clearly where he's gonna run and we obviously have to put it -- -- point -- Do you see him as more of a moderate he seems to be the president -- right we were heard him talk about a little bit about big business last night.
You talked on both sides of the issue you talked about taxation as well and and giving businesses a break.
That seemed to play a little bit with the Republicans and many came -- -- -- call for regulation on banks and big oil playing to his Democrat.
Grassley doesn't have to worry about getting renominated.
So -- has no interest as Republicans go to the right.
To -- -- get the nomination -- can trying to -- -- some of that void yeah I I -- you don't want to you know I don't I don't think he compromised himself I don't think any diehard Democrat.
Would hear that speech and walk away.
You you know at the end of the day we all have to get business working again and create jobs in the private sector.
And I think what he's done -- was how do you stimulate some of that.
So you know it I always find it's better for me read it the next day that I'd been just listening to -- because -- surroundings.
Are such that there's there's distractions you don't hear the words quite as effectively.
As reading that that I -- I think.
This he started -- for the Kansas speech a few weeks ago and I think this is the tone is gonna run -- I ask is about playing politics if you will.
Represented of go America out of Texas was on a few minutes ago and he said that he's been defended -- time and time again because the Obama administration doesn't hand -- written speech.
Before I mean he's just get like an hour they -- -- didn't even get a copy -- The reason you don't do that is the last thing you want who has some elements of the stage these things in the -- -- you don't want to afford their 535.
Senators and house members sitting there reading the speech.
Getting -- -- of the applause lines and whatever the Democrats got -- And then that obviously Republicans -- right to be upset that.
I mean good or let's say let you -- you've got the date night going on so you -- sitting.
Alternately together I didn't in the -- And he said that he you know it's kind of -- often ferociously taking notes I'm just curious is -- political plan to make well it was an accident I don't know.
I was it was business as thing as an accident the state of the union speech.
-- you know it's all it's all staged and and I'm and I'm sure if they did that way they can -- the applause lines staying here.
Here but there were some members of the Republican Party that had the speeds I think what ended up happening his staff clearly there was some miscommunication he didn't get his copy let.
He chose to focus on that instead of I think some of them.
We'll -- -- anybody -- that brings it up and that's how we did.
Visually I mean you could see the president hand both copies to you next Boehner Biden.
Before he even started talking last night -- you know will will we can make of that -- I was just curious that there might have been a political play there.
Where -- points last night where you thought wow I'm surprised I didn't get it applause because it was kind of quiet and.
It was very quiet and it was.
You know I think the military lines always work and particularly after -- the tremendous effort that our troops.
I think that's the bipartisan thing you know everything else you know we stand up you tell the congress -- you do this storm -- -- -- -- You know -- -- exactly applause line that's not that's not intended for that for either side of either -- that stance intended the audience outside.
