But I want to get a practical question for you Brad.
This is a tough thing to put on right and you have you were part of this for George W.
How long does it take to do this we'll generally right after the election.
You are baptized by fire because the military district of Washington is charged with putting on the entire logistics.
So you have to fit into a program.
Which -- already been underway for some time and not knowing who the -- going to be.
Now the real challenge was in 2001.
Where of course.
We have the recount so they were planning generically.
They didn't -- -- the winner was gonna be so we actually were cheated out of many days.
Planning and preparation.
-- really had to jump into something that was already well in advance planning so that was a real challenge for us to actually.
Get in normal.
Plan get people ticketing.
All the kinds of logistics we need months' work we just had weeks.
And second time around when George W.
Bush came in the second time around.
One domestic policy going to be talking about which was -- -- security.
But basically he knew that he had a task and that was to continue to prosecute the war in Iraq and -- and -- -- this election had been a referendum.
On the war in Iraq.
He won and then got the surge in.
And brought it to the Obama ran on increasing taxes on rich people like Mitt Romney.
-- did that.
And he hasn't even taken -- the buffet well he took it yesterday that he hasn't been an -- before the inaugural he'd already done the one thing really that he ran on now what do you do.
Well he's got a real challenge because his legacy pretty much -- set in his first -- He was able to accomplish -- signature period period piece of legislation this generation trying to top obamacare.
Next four years is going to be very very difficult.
We have to pick and choose what his legacy will be in the the next four years now his speech today is -- unite us challenge us and inspire us and then of course a couple weeks we have the state of the union which will be the roadmap.
-- where he wants to take us next four years.
I think the state of the union is going to be all about taking -- bark off of the Republicans.
This is that this is the day where you say hey you said things I said things I said you were a vampire you said that I was a social list.
Let's forgive and forget and go have lunch.
But as you say two weeks from now when he goes back to the capital for the state of the union he's he's coming with a taste for Republican hide.
It's to be loaded for bear and he's if he's gonna take.
That the house the senate task he's in his back claim that he has a mandate.
Where he wants to take this now it's -- really wearing me out where the opposition the loyal opposition in the sense that.
We need to push back to be -- so -- and the Internet appreciate that you wore all blue in an expression of bipartisanship today best I could this is all the blue light got.
But and I don't -- to be read because they don't wanna taunt -- people but -- today we should all come together it's a great day for America.
But realize that the tough battles lay ahead.
And and -- -- look to -- the union for that roadmap of where he wants to take us and there are going to be certain things we can join in with.
But they're gonna -- -- things that we have to draw the line and end and be the opposition because he doesn't have the mandate he thinks he has we have a divided country.
The country made one of the status quo in November but they don't expect it governance.
About all this large hearted person capacity today this is amazing every -- -- -- you know I don't wanna fight.
But we appreciate it we appreciate your service and I'm glad that you get to be over here instead of having to do that over there -- so enjoy particular have a great day.
