Welcome back it's a two to one game in Washington and Democrats have yet they control the White House and the senate.
And the Republicans the house and speaker John Boehner warns Republicans need to prepare for what the president has in store.
We're trying to zero.
Over the next 42 months.
Two you -- know opens.
Experience ends who apparently.
OK so if political annihilation is the president's game plan what should Republicans do.
In -- former RNC chairman Jim Nicholson joins us right now from our nation's capital Jim -- Morning do you think that's what's on the president's plate right now is to destroy the Republicans in congress.
I think it is I think he's looking forward to the elections of 2014.
Where -- they can get the house back and then he'd have total control of the government which is what makes the US house so.
Historically critically important to us today mean.
We have to have it be a united.
Outpost in the house that's the only branch of -- government we still have.
And it's very important that.
That we hang together I used to say when I was a party chairman we have to hang together so we don't hang separate it and it's more important than ever now.
I want to share with you and our audience right now the results of a Fox News poll with the president's attitude toward congressional Republicans since his reelection.
He's become 55%.
People across America say 30% more bipartisan and 15% apparently were watching animals planet and had no idea.
You're talking about he would like to take control of -- of the house in two years but that would mean two more years.
Of this super polarized situation Washington DC and I think people are sick that.
-- people are but people are also sick of this runaway spending -- mean there is a very recent fox poll says 83%.
Of the people in this country.
Think that spending is out of control.
And ended this and it's in the US house and the Republicans in that US house -- though they only hope to try to stop this runaway spending and bring about some.
Reforms that we need to these programs -- could do those without pain to those are the beneficiaries the people that really native and it's important that we do that.
So that we can sustain these programs in the future and have this safety net.
For people who really need it well the president's as we don't have a spending problem it's the high cost of health care that's what he says.
-- bite you going back to 88 out of eight -- eight out of ten Americans disagree with them especially small business people sure 88% of them.
Think that spending is out of control and I noted -- US chamber.
Report recently that last year 52% of the small businesses in this country did not hire one employee.
And two thirds of them this year are not planning to make one new hire.
Sure and and your earlier point was that the Republicans going forward because they are united.
On bringing down spending they've got to hang together because you know the president has been very good at trying to have rationalize the Republican Party and when he does that.
He wins so it sounds like your advice to Republican Party members watch in Washington DC.
Is hang together you've got to be united because united we stand divided you fall.
It precisely right and I used to say when I was chairman you know if you believe happens less government more freedom and lower taxes and a strong military you're Republican.
And they're all these other issues about life in about marriage and about guns and those are important issues.
But the core principles of the Republican Party are those I just stated and if you believe that -- Republican.
And you should vote Republican and we have to support those people particularly in the house today were -- the last frontier and and you know if the Democrats only flake off seventeen.
Republican votes in the house they can pass a bill in the house so it's it's a very narrow.
Margin that we have -- and that's why we have to support to speaker and we have to stick together.
And we are of course the United States of America aren't -- exactly.
We thank you so much for joining us today from our DC thank you should be with you today having.
