President Obama pushing back against claims that the administration -- to our national debt he blames the guy before him.
If they start.
Try to give -- a bunch of facts and figures suggesting that it's true.
Whether -- not dog years does that make baked all the stuff into the cake it's all this doesn't make Dan we have all the interest payments for.
It's like somebody.
Goes to a restaurant order the big steak dinner.
Martini all that's done.
And then just as you're sitting -- may leave.
And a -- -- running up the -- So here we go with the -- -- -- -- sold this communications advisor at a crossroads generation of vice president -- Winston group.
Alan Colmes host Alan Colmes radio show what's going on you -- made gun belts all about the massive truce on doing fine now.
Don't think -- morning Q hi Chris and does the message cell.
No it does not Obama in 2009.
Says we had these extreme emergency spending measures.
And doesn't explain why he effectively ordered up two more stakes.
Got two more years that match that level of spending.
Not to mention when Democrats -- purse strings in Bush's final two years in office.
He didn't really have any complaints about that level of spending so this message has absolutely no credibility it all right -- you're looking.
Now our friend Alan Caldwell then we go or simply what I don't -- these stories being written the Democrats wanting to change this message well isn't what are you -- about.
Well you know I mean this is one of many messages as one narrative there are many narratives going on concurrently and don't forget -- so many months away.
From the election.
But the truth is the epidemic -- the Republicans did run up the tab they ran up the tab with the Iraq War something president.
Obama did not support they ran up the tab -- bush tax cuts so we couldn't pay.
For the things we -- trying to do something that Obama has been try to change and does he not have a right to respond.
Two attacks against him and put in contact -- what.
He -- but let's let's look at the numbers here and elected to you go added OK okay here's what we find the bush total four point nine trillion added it.
Over eight years the Obama totaled five point one trillion added in just over three years another chart for you do we have it folks.
Waiting on it you'll see the bar graph here for the bush years green green green green green.
And then you see three and a half bars.
But the Obama years and the reason why ability fourth one -- changed because.
That's when the fiscal year shifted over from the bush years Judy we'll bombing years so I asked -- to view.
What's the transcripts that.
What's what's completely ridiculous is that for instance take the bush tax cuts some Democrats love to talk about how terrible the bush tax cuts where.
But -- reauthorize them in 2010.
And the Democrats is to eliminate all of them it's just to change that top bracket.
So really if they talk about how it created this huge deficit they don't actually want to repeal all of them either they're blaming policies like that like the war in Afghanistan.
It -- continued and continued to support.
Letters of -- Democrats are buying into that message aren't I don't support the war in Afghanistan what what did you think -- what Carville said about the fact that he's worried.
On that this president needs maximal.
I here's a guy knows about empathy if they work for Bill Clinton I think he -- ticket but.
I -- we can't take for granted the fact that Obama is gonna walk back into the White House but.
But I'd like to know what of the bush tax cuts accomplish that they bring us the prosperity and jobs we were promised and besides what does -- planning he says is gonna cut he says he won't tell us where he's gonna cut you want to cut taxes we know that.
But other than going after Obama and criticizing.
What's his vision we haven't seen what you can't get elected without your own vision what you wanted to with a countries do we have to figure out when enough for -- in this -- well what's the message -- -- if you middle class America's been ripped apart or what you gonna put it that they buy this what's their what are the Mitt Romney instead what the Republican.
Gotta admit the message is we can do batter and -- is that America.
Mitt Romney -- better economic plan last summer what -- you know what Obama criticized Republicans yesterday for saying.
Well their campaign plan could fit on a 140 characters just -- the 59 point planet was like over a hundred pages.
If that actually -- -- Republican communicated that's kind of the problem you have to be able to sell your message.
More apparently what I don't get rather this -- odd man -- I'm -- -- time -- -- -- -- a cigarette I had to face ability -- Alan I think you have to pick -- person dinner tonight I mean that's what a gentleman does a sluggish it has an over order like the Republicans did will be on the guys.
See you next time -- are on.
