Now the presidential campaign and this might hit a home again for -- has President Obama changes campaign -- to blame the Bush Administration here is what the present to.
-- supporters in Baltimore.
This notion that somehow we -- the deficit -- just wrong.
It does not -- -- of the -- it's not it's not true and if they start.
-- to give -- a bunch of facts and figures suggesting that it's true.
-- they're not -- there is does that make -- all this stuff into the cake with those tax cuts.
At the strip prescription drug plan that -- -- papal and the war that it's all this doesn't make Dan we have all the interest payments for.
It's like somebody.
Goes to a restaurant orders -- big steak dinner.
Martini all that's done.
And then just as you're -- -- may leave.
-- accuse you are running up the tab.
Even that private James -- just like the idea of saying that the buck doesn't stop here and it's the other guy's fault power outages how what are they doing this at first thought it it shows the contempt of the present United States for the intelligence of the average American.
If you take a look at the last year of bush -- nine and you include all the TARP spending that was done as of January 20 2009.
And the initial auto loans granted by bush.
The deficit was equal to two point 7% of GDP.
Less than half of what was.
In the latter half of 2009 when Obama was in office and spent a while -- remember he comes in and immediately spends a lot more the TARP money.
He immediately asked for an omnibus spending bill -- plus up the federal budget and he also asks for.
A stimulus bill of 862.
Billion dollars if you take a look at it and look at his spending it drives.
Spending from -- twenty point 2% of GDP.
When bush leaves office including the TARP money he spent and the auto money spent and the budget that he approved.
To nearly 25% of GDP after Obama gets in office he is responsible for the debt run up on his watch.
It is -- for him to try and blame it on President Bush or Japanese tsunami are on ATM but it makes him look weak in the American people are not that done.
I think I suspect if he were here he would say as the debt run up who was something that -- -- because of his economic ideology that you stimulate the economy perform more money into company doughboy and an ambush this.
My little -- other I don't think you're not just -- car.
I I think he's easy I'm guessing what you say no I said that the Bush Administration rightfully profits made made such a massive ad that he had to spend so much money and as a consequence and he's going to say that -- -- for more looks may have sent that money I disagree I think -- and then -- -- -- -- -- -- you know what I always -- -- but -- and let him.
Keep doing that because the American people see that as a week.
Leader that's not somebody who's in charge that somebody's making excuses and we do not like to elect people president United States who -- excuse makers we want a president be big and bold.
And remember on January 10 of 2009 he said.
Let me tell you exactly what will happen if you want to know exactly what will happen take a look at this report will should show you if you pass a stimulus.
Unemployment today would be five point 7% -- -- thirteen million more Americans working that's what he said -- policy would do now.
Either his policy didn't work or he deliberately misled us either way he's responsible for what town what else can -- -- Well it is it's difficult the one thing they could have done was last year begin to lay the predicate for a bold move forward looking agenda similar reform the tax code I'm gonna.
How many -- and tackle entitlements I'm gonna put our fiscal house in order.
You know all of those things would have laid the -- -- -- this year he could say we need to continue to fight to be important battle here.
But now look -- reduced to saying you know what it was worse I wasn't Smart enough to figure out how bad it was.
I've done the best I could and I know it has come up short but I have empathy for you being in a bad place I mean none of those three things one -- What we would just think whoever I'm perplexed why -- -- a very strong Democrat and I noticed a Clinton Democrat but why he wouldn't have made public statements about this it -- it do you think that they're not -- -- -- and this is just sort of you know -- he doesn't get their attention so -- gonna make public statements about about the waste handling this.
Maybe but he's a guy strong conviction anymore and he wants to try and he once -- Democrats to win and he's trying to do his best influence.
Obama and attitude -- to.
They're not gonna give my insult my taught him that his plan that is -- is methodology is Tehran will and I.
My sensitivities but that's that's how -- sometimes -- Tracy you're doing a dumb thing disheartened to -- the let's think about this for just a step back for adjustment we have Obama -- and we're going in the right direction -- for forty and we came through rough times -- because what I did -- moving in the right direction we're creating jobs away and we're growing our economy.
And then the second part of that is is it you can't trust Romney because he's a vulture capitalist a vampire.
Who pillaged and looted these companies those are the two elements.
What James is saying is don't say that the economy is improving because people don't believe it and two thirds of the people don't think your policies.
Have -- they think your policy of either hurt.
Or not helped economic growth so start off by saying I understand you're in a bad place and I got empathy for you and then on the second part of -- James says -- they just.
Three different approaches and the one that they recommend the most is.
Attack Romney for they say he's going to cut Medicaid he's going to end social security and Medicare and he's gonna -- teachers firemen police.
Now there's not much difference really between those two things except in the second instance James -- sand.
You know my empathy with she is and I'm gonna do things in the future to make the middle class better.
But otherwise they're both based on the same thing which is ignore the reality of the current economy.
-- a big component half for more of your job is to disqualify Mitt Romney by going after -- of the two left war.
Yeah I can't you -- thanks and --
