And we want to bring and doctor Charles Krauthammer.
-- his psychiatrist and he made -- way.
Some of the heat pack and more than we've seen here in New York Charles.
Well I know I love about -- -- that I don't get between.
Karl Rove and the decision desk.
Summer leave the titans still fight it out you know simply go with what is pretty clear.
From that even I mean there's it's almost chances are infinitesimal that Romney can pull this out I think the real story here.
Is that Obama won.
But he's got no mandate he won that -- going very small very negative.
We are left as a country exactly where we started that a little bit worse off.
The Republicans are in control of the house probably a little bit stronger they're not gonna -- -- no way in which after holding out on -- momma for two years.
-- -- -- -- And Obama doesn't have anywhere really to go.
He he governed very large in the first two years when he had control of the congress he nationalized health care.
He passed the largest stimulus which was all kinds of industrial policy.
Supporting green energy all of the -- ideas.
And he tried to enact them and then when he lost control of the house he stopped.
In order to win reelection he went small state small and he put together his constituencies here and there.
And he put it together enough that he -- he probably he he idiots in majority of the popular.
But vote it'll be very small if there's any.
And even in the electoral I think it's going to be a rather small majority particularly if the Virginia and Florida will go -- -- so this is not a mandate either in the numbers.
Or in the way that he campaign he did not campaign on any ideas.
Anything large anything important he didn't address entitlements -- -- many things like that so well -- do.
I think he's got he will go back to who years.
People have said he should be a Clinton and compromise have a successful second term.
But he is not instinctively a moderate I think he is a man of the left and -- will try to push his agenda through.
Where is what he thinks is a mandate and I think we are going to be exactly where we were say a year ago with the debt ceiling argument.
Next year and the problem is that the country will slide.
Right through a second term because I don't see give on either side particularly with the president with a very weak.
To mandate for a second term.
Charles what what it sounds kind of negative until -- -- -- I think -- depressed at the country.
So as a psychiatrist I will offer to write prescriptions for anybody who needs them right now I just write -- at Fox News out.
Take as a lawyer -- counseling you're not not to do that.
-- wanna ask you what does this mean.
For the Republican Party.
I'm -- is despairing as many people -- I think this is an unusual election because Romney was a transitional figure I thought he ran as good a campaign as he could I think he dishonorably well.
Came pretty close.
But you as a man he's in northeastern liberal and that's not what we're going.
The two northeastern liberals who ran senator -- moderates.
In -- Massachusetts and in the -- the loss.
That's not -- the future of the party is and I'm optimistic because.
There was a very strong Republican -- that did not enter the fray we had a very weak field.
Among the in the and in choosing this candidate than this year Romney was the only one remotely presidential and he was a logical candidate.
But think of those who didn't run there's of course Paul Ryan who I think will be a leader in the party have a whole rising young generation.
You've got Bobby Jindal Nikki Haley.
-- the crews in new senator from Texas -- Marco Rubio his whole generation who are just a year or two short.
In their careers from running this time are all -- -- be in the -- next time.
And I think they are the future -- -- searching about what ideology we're going to pursue.
He's gonna come from them and I think it will be a fairly Reagan -- -- conservative ones I think that -- future of the party is quite right.
-- Charles thank you as always we have many many days to talk about that on the panel.
We'll look forward to that.
