Back and have a cigarettes and I yesterday edited an extensive talking points memo which you can see on our website about the fact that I believe traditional America can and will.
Make a comeback Dennis Miller disagrees and it.
So I wanted to know what Charles Krauthammer thought he's traveling today but I caught up with -- before -- left.
So -- you think I'm right or wrong I believe as you know that traditional America can make a comeback and you say.
Well I think it -- -- and I think Romney did not make the argument.
When you remember I think the reason he shied away from the argument basically to boil it down it's the givers in the takers to make it rather crudely.
He got caught with a tape saying the 47%.
Now that number is not an accurate number that number this -- -- who don't pay income tax.
But some of them are older people -- Social Security or the military so he was over -- attack and then he just ran away from that.
Whereas I think Ryan made that case it's a much smaller number but it's a significant number and the strategy of liberals has always there.
To increase dependency because that increases their constituencies.
And that keeps them in -- -- give you one example of what's coming up.
Obamacare obamacare will now subsidize.
Insurance for families making up to four times the poverty rate that's 91000.
After a family in some states now once -- subsidizing feel that 91000 dollars.
You subsidizing everyone and that's -- point that liberals want to do the more you make more people dependent.
The more you have your constituencies in more than reelect you.
And that's a strategy I don't think the argument is lost.
But I think it's got to be made and Romney simply -- couldn't really engage -- very well particularly after his mistake.
And second he didn't feel she know it -- it the way the younger generation.
The Ryan's in the gym -- And the others who I've been coming in will be in 2016.
The way that they can make -- -- but that's an economic argument and end to end it with Obama -- yes more people becoming under the -- of the government assistance but also -- be paying for.
Because taxes are gonna have to go up and everybody's gonna pay more.
In some way shape -- -- -- socially when you see 71%.
Of Hispanics voting for secular progressive Barack Obama.
Who doesn't really share their values about religion.
-- well I can't say family because Obama is a good family man and it puts forth a good example there.
But he doesn't make -- a call us.
Certainly he doesn't challenge the abortion zealots he seems to be opposed socially from most in the Hispanic community -- Romney never went there at all.
Romney never went anywhere on what Romney did -- he had a one great night in the first debate and that brought him back into the race should put him ahead in fact.
What -- they decided at that point.
Why she's gonna run on the economy on stewardship.
And he could coast to victory and remarkably clean look at the exit polls.
A majority European -- of Americans start the economy was improving.
On Election Day that when your whole strategy these two runs saying he had a chance to -- the economy -- -- how to do it.
Because that's the path of least resistance that -- where you can make the argument without trying.
When the numbers switch on you and the perception of the economy changes you've got nothing so instead of running a large when he appointed Riley had a chance to run on.
There you know the -- the entitlement state the -- increase in a dependency.
All of -- he decided not to do if not millions literally right he wouldn't engage on an event guys either way he would get a -- -- and duties but he ran a conservative right.
And he -- okay.
Now going forward though do you agree with me that Hispanic American voters can be drawn in.
To the traditional forces I'm not talking so much party politics now.
But can you know ten day or are they like African Americans -- gonna stay voting bloc of to the left no matter what happens.
I think -- Hispanics are very different from African Americans.
And they ought to constituencies Obama -- single women.
And young people are generally more liberal.
That Republicans are Conservative Party -- who they are.
The country does not need to liberal parties but Hispanics.
Are not inherently liberal.
Hispanics you know -- tight family they have you know their religious Catholic.
There's socially conservative especially on abortion.
These are national institute constituencies.
Be they are striving -- -- -- group and that is a natural conservative constituency.
The problem is they've been driven away by a party that refuses to deal with the issue of illegal immigration.
Do you believe that have Marco Rubio -- in the vice presidential choice instead of Paul Ryan.
That that would have made a difference in Florida Virginia Nevada and Colorado.
-- it wouldn't have made enough of a difference in this election.
But if Marco Rubio is a presidential candidate in 2016.
And the party begins to advocate.
Enforcement plus amnesty after enforcement.
I think it'll be a sea change I think you get a revolution in the Hispanic vote.
And I think he'll restore all this talk about that Republicans are demographically extinct is nonsense.
Just -- amber thank you as always pleasure.
