Bryant in his inaugural address yesterday -- President Obama started out his second term much like he finishes first.
Taken a shot of Republicans and those who disagree with him.
The patriots a 1776.
Did not -- to replace the turning a McCain.
-- the privileges of a few.
Or the rule of a mob for not decisions are upon us and we cannot afford delay.
We cannot mistake absolutism for principal.
Results should spectacle for politics.
Retreat name calling as reasoned debate.
So will this set the tone for the next four years with reaction Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson junior Peter 24 hours ago we were sitting here in this studio -- and you're hopeful that the present United States would extend -- -- -- little chip.
I believe that he wouldn't infect as the completely nailed it when moments that I was delusional.
In in that prospect and so what we heard was a hard left manifesto.
For the president of the United States yesterday at the inauguration.
It was not so much about populism as it was about pandering.
And it was a very bizarre -- ordered.
Priority of what are our national interest work.
Where was the debt where was the deficit where was the unemployment and -- was the issue of poverty in America which is increased.
Under his watch where's the hopelessness.
Where is the fear that so many Americans have that they're gonna lose their house.
We -- the solutions for those problems sure instead we got this catalog.
Of false premises.
Phantom arguments in terms of civil rights.
In terms of global warming in terms of long lines at the polls.
So if I'm voted for -- the president in this past election and I'm a moderate Democrat and a centrist Democrat as I am.
And I hear this yesterday I see.
Is this president in touch with the realities.
Of America where it's it's more about saying.
My hand is on the president Lincoln and and and -- one of the -- Bible.
This stack of bibles I will make my statement about what I believe and look out on this millions of people this Ronald.
An -- and remember this forever it's not about remembering this for ever it's about what we're gonna do.
To make our country safe over the next four years and they had to say well you know.
We can't be in a perpetual state of war.
It's estimated there's a lack of understanding about the great terroristic threat that we face in this United States' hands and to say well.
-- you know -- wouldn't that's that's the older weigh in America.
It was disconcerting.
-- say the least.
I mean it was very clear he's gonna push is very left agenda it but you know what there's some on the right Peter who say that this could backfire on him because if you remember in 2009.
He took office.
He's a Democrat he had the White House they had the senate and the house -- well they pushed through the stimulus they push through health care using nuclear option.
And what happened as a mid terms the Democrats got -- I believe that this sets up the president unfortunately.
For our country for a backlash.
When people examine what he said and how he said it yesterday they say is -- the country that we want.
Has he captured the Democratic Party in a way it's bad for -- -- interest or has he been captured.
By the leftist elements of the Democratic Party that in a way that's bad for our national interest.
This it's -- will hold backlash and a bit I don't think we understand.
At this point we wish him well obviously he's our president.
But I was very surprised about what I heard yesterday you know people who want all right -- -- because we thank you -- okay.
