To mince words Florida congressman Alan west offering up his assessment of president Obama's policies.
Let's be very honest and let's put that in some military vernacular.
If you feeding a person that crap sandwich with a smile still crap sandwich and I think that's what TC come from President Obama.
He's fed America just -- load of you know what it is not done anything for this country event.
Increase in our unemployment increase in Americans in poverty increase in the food stamp rolls and we're heading in the wrong direction.
-- is right now is Florida congressman and retired lieutenant colonel Allen west he's in Boynton Beach on the other side of Florida from this morning you congressman.
Good morning Steve are you doing.
I'm doing fine strong words -- -- regarding an entree items.
Well I think they're very appropriate words the conversation the Neil Cavuto and -- have a Saturday morning.
Was all about the presidents like ability in opposition to Mitt Romney.
And so -- try to get tired of people talk about like ability we should be talking about the facts.
Gretchen just made the case couple segments earlier.
-- she talked about what gasoline prices were on inauguration day -- Buffy before.
And now we seeded fifth -- -- -- 73 cents on average.
When you look at what has happened to median family income.
Anywhere from about 2004000.
Dollars of -- lost in the black community -- -- 11% decrease in median family income.
And let's talk about the increase of the debt per person has gone from 34000.
Took over 51000.
And we know that this week we will hit sixteen trillion dollars in debt.
So that's the the hope and change has been served our -- see what that's like ability.
Yeah I you know -- and I mentioned earlier congressman that I was in the airport talking to some folks who.
Are concerned about the next election and they say you know everybody's talking about how the president always is so likable.
With all -- negative campaign ads they don't think that he is that likable anymore.
And I read the paper today that apparently one of the things the GOP is going to try to push this week is Barack Obama.
Okay sure he's likable but he has failed as president.
You're absolutely right you know this is about leadership it's about courage confidence character commitment -- conviction.
And it's also not about these solemn risky type of tactics which -- listed -- from Chicago which were -- from the president.
If you cannot run on your record if you cannot stand upon objective assessment.
Did you go to go to the political cheap shot and that's exactly what we see coming out of this administration.
So once again -- -- see where.
There's this -- like ability rating because I am looking at the effects.
That we are seeing as far as the policies.
Having on our country and we haven't even talked about a national security with sequestration the fact that we're emboldening our enemies but yet we're confusing our allies.
It's -- good point I mean if we were basing who the president is on like ability.
Regis Philbin would have been elected many many years ago but but that's not have so what we vote on.
Also we'll talk a little bit about your particular race a couple of weeks ago we talked about.
The super pac that has been running some it inappropriate ads against you interestingly enough your opponent's father funding in large -- part.
That super -- and others in new attack ad from your opponent featuring children.
Let's take -- look.
You'll love my smile it's debatable all of the -- -- and kindness and I need.
Yeah and -- -- Allen west and all these things in worse.
When bullying and name calling has no place in the playground or in congress.
I'm Patrick Murphy and I approve this message.
OK so but it looks like they have they hired some kids to simply parent with some adults had said in the past regarding you.
How do you feel about that.
Well first of all would give that goes back to the fact that when your inept in your incompetent and you can't talk about the issues you're gonna go -- and exploit our children.
And when you think about the fact that the future of these children gradual -- put -- risk with sixteen trillion dollars in debt.
I don't think that my opponent cares about the future of America cares about the future for the kids he just used.
Horribly and a campaign -- to attack me.
So this once again as the lead of the other type of politics that you see emanating from people.
-- can address the issues to the American populace and talk about -- solutions to make sure that we can turn this country around and get ahead in the right direction.
Particularly your response the campaign opposite you said this it's remarkable that Allen west thinks that things he says as a congressman are so inappropriate that children.
Can't even say them.
Well once again while we want to bring our children into this conversation.
I'm an adult I'm a grown man and I don't think that we want to have children going out and get into the realm of politics like -- saying.
But again think about this we're going to his sixteen trillion dollars in debt.
Each one of those children the Patrick Murphy -- and that -- -- that's 51000 dollars in debt on their -- that's the case and we need to be talking about.
Yep you're exactly right -- congressman Allen west we thank you very much for joining us thanks in Boynton Beach thank mr.
