More the author of the brand new book it's the middle class still -- My good friend James Carville what about guys -- are you serious good to the other here last time we debated Tim Russert and Dryden had not idea Long Island that was a lot of fun and we didn't yard and we had to -- and let down in Florida and Orlando and Atlanta and ever -- right out on the road together announcing things where our enemies and we're not I love your wife I just don't know what she was thinking -- I don't know -- I want to -- -- to -- America elegant elegant I'd say man you know I'm like you guys but I'll take it but I think we all -- yeah he said the problem recently.
-- you're -- Clinton got.
You have -- I was asking a question about Clinton nobody's he said that where you're you really -- Clinton got right right.
OK let let me play some comments but as we now when -- negative campaign.
Part of the parliament of this process what -- -- -- comments that Hillary and bill.
Bring it back to the primary campaign.
So shame on you Barack Obama it is time he ran a campaign consistent with your messages.
Public that's what I expect from you meet me in Ohio let's have a debate about.
I think that they played the race card on me that we now know.
From memos from the -- and everything that they plan to do it all wrong.
Those are pretty serious -- you guys.
I -- -- I went back and picked up the things that that Gingrich or Rick Santorum Rick Perry said about Romney during the saying -- -- -- -- content to stuff like that a dramatic as the president showed a good judgment.
God to pick us then Senator Clinton to be a secretary of state.
They've done a marvelous job he's the first Democrat my life congressman -- on foreign policy.
So you've -- that is primarily you know what god Jerry Brown said some things about us tonight two of Powell song let's say that I did that that happens that happens in the -- -- in any primary.
But you know lead at some point it's -- it's water under bridge our President Clinton is sending out fundraising -- for President Obama now so they get used -- got a goal back into.
Look at I'll go back and try and all of the things that that job Gingrich ad out about like -- say Rick Perry remember anyone at ending the race card is about a series you get him -- -- subtly and Oakland ever got over myself.
You know what he's he's on board totally out -- talk -- him well Monday a week ago when he was tell me about it's not a -- raisin thank god that guy I think that they did she didn't like him -- Jordan undersecretary of state both important job and administration are you just focus -- middle class stupid you came up with the line it's.
Economy stupid I went by the late great I agree with -- -- -- -- it's about the economy it's -- the middle class we agree on -- right it probably a final thought I was on the so rightly says it's it's still the economy we're not we're not stupid -- here's -- question I have thought we'd better off economically.
Then we war for years ago and and five trillion dollars like what demonstrably better off today the president took office over the 750000.
Jobs a mosque.
And we tend to forget that I can't just have this recovery down everything debt debt debt debt we hope for out.
I mean you know we now find out today aftermath of these financial crisis is a very tough does thing -- -- we've had.
You know -- really didn't mean understandably but would blossom was a half million public sector jobs here.
I did different from so you America's working now then when Obama took office it didn't have private sector jobs are up.
We have a few Americans -- get -- they get.
The private sector did that more private sector growth initial coveted there was you know rafter recovered it it's actually 9000 job audition and I'm more than a recovery at 2001 at a comparable time.
More private sector jobs are created it was created after two -- what it's it's it's insufficient patients are completely agree with -- But that's a fact -- I had -- a real devastation is -- Is it a public sector and.
But -- it would have is that for the first time in American history we've had our sovereign debt downgraded.
We have federal spending.
Our budget deficit -- federal debt as a percentage of GDP now is the highest since World War II.
We have long term unemployment the highest since the 1930s.
-- more people on government assistance than ever before in history.
We now have what more could -- the fewer people paying taxes -- for.
Obama said he was gonna cut the deficit in half.
He said he was gonna get rid of earmarks is sitting on turn this economy around worst economy since the Great Depression you're gonna -- he's -- what -- Yes they probably got off to who are forty -- little -- -- -- better off but look where it.
We're losing 750000.
Jobs the -- John we're now creating 80000 jobs a month you might finish 80000 is not very good.
It's a lot better on the nose and -- -- fifty.
Look at all of -- shots rewarded with a -- a full blown -- -- worldwide recession.
But didn't do it the truth of the matter here is this is done -- aftermath of this financial crisis -- has been a very difficult recovery no problem.
Does and in terms of the deficit everybody it's 15%.
Of the steps and were all our Obama's policies 85% would -- -- -- -- prior administration.
When you handle a recession probably dealing with a fax hawk in my -- end with the way we have a recession.
When you have a recession.
Sharp tax revenues go down because not as many people working and government benefits go up because more people apply for unemployment less paperwork and that that that's the nature of other than the -- but -- but yes -- -- 15%.
The card above what would now -- as a result of Obama's.
Obviously the problem I have with the -- numbers and I -- -- -- give you an open shot here and approach the problem is this delay and participation rate of throughout the level when Obama took office we'd be at 11% unemployment.
He promised he predicted his administration and unemployment I'll be at five point 6%.
All of his predictions from cutting the deficit in half all of those predictions about the economy.
Have been dead wrong and we have to wait until you said in a recent interview that the biggest problem this country -- as the deficit.
No president in American history is accumulated more debt than him and let me go back and I never really are well first off.
I've got my number -- the number of them every analyst says 15% of this deficit is -- Obama.
85% as bush -- -- -- Did they see me go to any other product and the biggest contributed to this deficit is bush tax cuts but these -- not mind understand is that not my numbers he's -- a real numbers.
-- the deep -- point here is is -- I think it just recession in the end it as a research we now know.
The aftermath of financial crisis is produced very very very nasty recession to go back and looked at that and that's what happened this was not a normal -- But in -- you could fix it by -- right.
When Obama took office -- registration had zero they had no no nothing they could do about monetary policy recession but it has been tough and I and I and I and I think -- that is stay out they just been tough for middle class to the middle class.
You know in lost 40% of its wealth between 2007 and 2000 not.
Nobody that I 20072010.
Melbourne no nobody else happened -- 2009 but what all happened but it does not and we got what -- I don't know nobody that does not -- that -- -- showed it showed a -- it all happens in 2007 and 2000 not.
That basically haven't had a raise in thirty years in hours worked and grown up only Tom but the middle class actually got to raise a monopolist value right you have.
Analysts say he is and it -- look at this is the campaign and -- pretty Smart political strategist -- and I'll be honest I'd take Clinton over Obama any day and -- and maybe I was wrong to start the stop Hillary express.
I'm they -- I think ever granite.
But see here's the bottom line it.
I call on president crybaby who -- tsunamis earthquakes.
He blames kiosks ATM machine to blames Fox News talk radio Har row Sean Hannity Rush Limbaugh everybody -- -- -- and his own policies did he in do you not say in some way that he failed.
When all these jobs -- outsourced didn't stimulus -- went to these foreign countries.
I don't care if they say they are asking me what what what what what they've been wouldn't.
What should have would have had a vision and had a from sure are Smart not it's -- it's going to be president for three and a half years would you go back and say well -- do you disagree -- just won't sure.
But overall I think this president done a darn doggone good job and I think he's yeah he's he's 200 you know he's he's gone and he goes yes I'm not I'm not -- -- foreign -- actually been pretty doggone gut.
I think a lot of things that he's put -- -- shouldn't have worked pretty good I think his GM Chrysler thing was a Smart thing they get beat you have if he if you say.
Has he made some mistakes if she Hanson who couldn't be president to do you have Hillary Clinton getting you know tomatoes are a matter and in Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood the Arab Spring and our president out of all of -- brotherhood darned are not -- don't like us.
But what implement its common why didn't -- see what they see because I saw -- -- check back with -- she's a diplomat.
You don't want to say to diplomats did you go to places where -- not like.
That's that's the nature of the and a good diplomat might -- I kill the throttle a misunderstanding however -- I don't know I mean I think did she knows that she has a tough job.
She's -- a tough spot she's got a tough job but there but again unit you just don't know took it to people like you -- go to the people I know I can estimate of diplomacy that try to plot that's why you he had a year earlier in the Delhi police to stop and how like how I -- -- these.
