-- -- the businessmen and others have said.
That that message has become one of class warfare attacking the -- attacking.
People who make a -- -- people who make jobs.
Why is that is that that tone has been sad that people believe.
That this class while they may be watching one particular network and CNN news.
Governor Mike Huckabee heard that and suggests he might want to check -- boss because.
This is what he and Vice President Biden are saying on the campaign for a pretty -- all the time.
You've got educated teachers.
You're on your.
Full blown assault.
I don't think.
We grow our economy.
From the top down I think we grow the economy.
From the middle class -- he says the president's out of touch.
How we all of -- was thank you -- There's nothing wrong with asking.
-- pay a little more in tax.
And who we are.
Got a ticket from here Joseph -- have -- Day whoever today are don't get who we are well who he is and who Obama is.
Are people who believe that the best way to fix the economy.
Is to penalize productivity and subsidize reckless irresponsibility.
So you take money from those -- worked really really hard to be successful and to work.
But they're not getting their fair share I don't know if you got the memo they're not doing their -- what is the fair share every time I ask a Democrat that question is should give me a percentage Everett attacks every 800 -- nobody can ever.
Nail it down because they don't want to say.
More than what it's ever been before but the fact is.
-- class warfare has been the primary tool.
That the Obama administration has used to try to say that there's something inherently wrong with people we've been successful.
And I think what the real downside is inaugural dirt poor kneel on the first -- and my family graduate high school no one -- a morality.
Well you know with the -- that fact is.
When Joseph Biden talks like I'm Sanchez you don't speak for me you don't even -- -- you have no idea where -- come from.
Please don't act like that you understand the middle class I long to be in the middle class as a kid growing up.
And and the idea that somehow you grow up resenting people -- something no it inspires you.
I -- warning to be able to get an education to work hard and hope one day.
To be able to live better the night grew up living.
I'm wondering too that there must be a strategy to it -- governor and and you run for president and governor.
You've been surrounded by aids and sick of -- and people tell you what to say it was a terrible asthma death.
And I do is wonder the president's people -- -- really got elected president -- -- -- He was surrounded by people who were up against a herculean challenge getting -- it to where he is today.
So they've got these tracking balls and figure if you criticize private capital to criticize.
The the rich if you go after them as a sort of a gilded class.
You're gonna register you're gonna resonate and and obviously they keep doing -- so they feel they haven't and some polls seemed it.
Vindicate despite the bad economy they are on so being a bit too simplistic here but may be the numbers are with them on this.
I don't think that's it as much as it is that people generally like Barack Obama the folks out there who don't really pay attention to policy.
They pay attention to personality.
And his they pay attention to their own sense of worth but they do believe that a lot of that is because those nasty Republicans in congress is if you're the single voice of the president you always win at the bully pulpit level -- -- -- And there's 535.
Members of congress half of -- Republicans and it's easy to to blame them and it's hard for them to have the unified voice I think that's a lot of what happens and yet its interest in Obama talks about the class of the rich and -- -- he hang on most of the time.
With the George Clooney's at 40000 dollars a pop at a dinner coming to new York and hanging out with the swells of 35000.
Dollars per plate.
I -- for him to act like that he is just a man in touch with the ordinary people.
He's had more fund raisers in more high dollar situations.
Than any president in history.
Of the poor and the destitute.
Stern will put their will -- you know it's following a rough behind the governor not too long ago.
You know every person he bumps into every security guard.
If he could be -- in turn it could be no matter who you -- he's smiling user friendly to them and I've seen other big names come through this building.
Who will go on an unnamed.
Common it's as if they're invisible they don't and stuff.
I always think that says something about a person I don't know what but seriously it does get it just a remarkable guy -- remarkable -- -- -- what he got thrown.
But we have Allen west on will be talking very -- will also I think you're not the guy from that -- the congress -- not out -- got -- -- -- by the way a little trivia here.
The guy that played Robin turned 67 today -- is -- that today I know that you were really wanted to know that for your show on.
Financial matters but I thought that might be of interest it is you spent a little less time talking.
Everyone we also have an African American pastor very prominent -- will talk about does Barack Obama have the monolithic support.
