So let's start out you got a couple three talks today to be exact restarted Newt Gingrich talking about the high gas prices and how these could crater the the economy economy could be -- by August.
I was actually talking with my blow the other day about the specifically and I said I kind of echoed what what Gingrich was saying I set I think it's been.
I think it's going to erupt from especially as summer comes around and he said none an Indian people people adjust Americans know how to adjust.
What's the sense.
Well I disagree that they feel they just -- think a little bit three dollars is okay I think four dollars is when people get really concerned to dominate the headlines.
And then five dollars president Obama's got a real problem and then -- guess that.
Then he could be the underdog in this race so to Gingrich playing up that issue if -- so it's a winning issue for Republicans.
But you know with Gingrich -- this is got to have that a good night.
Tomorrow night he's he's playing a very much in Georgia he has to win Georgia but.
Question is can he expand.
His base -- -- -- just a regional candidate and clearly talking about gas prices is something that all the -- Republican candidates have been talking now because you when you drive to work.
Every day you see.
They did jump in prices and President Obama has made the case well we had the highest oil fraction.
That the US is ever had -- had that argument doesn't work because people just care about their bottom.
Line the bottom dollar and if they're paying four dollars plus per gallon that's a major political problem for the president that's why I think he used.
Eventually going to open up the strategic petroleum reserves just like he did.
A little while back because it this is something that could impede his every election chances -- -- Gingrich does and he really went on went on the offensive here he said that the president -- fire.
The energy secretary Stephens you seemed -- you know keeping Iran would show that is to his committed to his quote his radical ideology.
Which ones to artificially raise the cost of energy.
I mean I'm pulling no punches which isn't surprising thinking yes.
Yeah -- and Stephen issue is is someone who's been and in under the gun he is not a political players normal policy person.
Been thrust in the spotlight because of the the Solyndra scandal so.
The -- -- who has been on the ropes he seems to have persevered that in and president mama's not gonna be getting rid of them any time soon.
But it's something that -- does play the -- because more and more Republicans conservatives know who Steven Chu is right and clearly they have a problem.
-- next topic the president says he has Israel's back eyes meeting in the mountain -- -- -- meeting with Netanyahu urging -- on Iran sanctions.
Give us the lowdown on this yet this is a tough one for the president went to a -- over the weekend.
As saying that he is Israel's back but all the same time same -- -- -- sanctions should definitely.
Be allowed to play out now a lot of conservatives.
Has said listen we we've tried that for for years we've also done sanctions on on Cuba for.
A long time and -- Castro regime is still there so this is something that Republican candidates they're talking about a lot because Mitt Romney says.
That unless something is done that Iran is going to get.
A nuclear power and if you reelect President Obama then then they will have nuclear capabilities so.
What will Israel do will they give the United States a heads up.
You know it seems like something is imminent over the next.
Several weeks perhaps several months and end this is awkward position for the president because he's got to make the case.
That he's with Israel.
But also cautioning them.
Because of the turmoil -- -- cause should then they strike one of their nuclear facilities to the president plans on addressing the white house press -- tomorrow what's gonna happen -- do you think.

Grew grabbing the spotlight.
Which at which he's done on previous occasions in -- a Republican presidential primary.
I think a lot to discuss and he wants to get at his vision.

But he's been criticizes he's not held.
A lot of press conferences but the timing of this is I think the message that --
