President Obama will deliver the State of the Union Address on Tuesday hoping to provide some clarity on his upcoming agenda.
This will be his fifth State of the Union Address before congress and it would be crucial and persuading Americans to support him.
In his final term as president what she wouldn't say.
Bring back in our political insiders down -- -- a Packard Dell and and Doug -- Right so pat if we just learned GDP is negative.
Unemployment is up.
Poverty is rising incomes are falling CBO says the deficit is unsustainable.
What does the president set.
Well now he's gonna talk about the economy up till now and maybe he was going to talk about all the issues DC is consumed with which is interest in the pew poll have a poll up.
And it showed that the bottom five things -- things people are concerned about the economy the deficit jobs think you would expect.
Things the president didn't talk about -- inaugural.
In this way and at the bottom work immigration.
Gun control legislation and at the very bottom global warming.
Those -- the issues that last week the president -- playing and hammer.
So we'll see -- analyses pitted in the economy for the reason you said.
And he's got to fight to sequestering and speaking of hypocrisy the sequestering bill that he proposed as we know for Bob Woodward's book.
And the Republicans and Democrats in congress both passed and now they all -- they know how we got here.
Does show what -- you -- and the president is he gonna say not my fault.
Well he's gonna say he has a jobs strategy.
As pat was suggested because the disconnect between the American people.
And the -- -- in Washington couldn't be greater the president knows that his own popularity.
-- greater than the Republicans.
Is hanging on a slender reed.
He has to make the case that he has a strategy.
To address -- the issues Greg you were talking about which is these.
Fragile state of our economy.
That being said he's -- -- that I think to the debt and the deficit he's gonna talk about.
Raising additional revenue because there is going to be no sign of compromise.
No willingness to do a deal.
On the budget in any grand -- bargain of their type that Bowles Simpson proposed or he was working towards in 2011.
And I think we're gonna get more of the same with a focus on jobs in the economy and more stimulus spending grant money just.
Raise taxes on everyone now wants more tax revenues Wright says he wants more and the Democrats at their conservative line we mean it's another 600 billion in tax revenue.
We still haven't gotten to the issue we accept any -- any spending cuts no one wants to talk about it frankly in either party for Greg.
There's a leak out today that the president in his speech is gonna talk about.
Debt and deficit reduction.
Because they saw the pupil the polls show this is what people care about they do and the exit poll showed this thing.
-- the poll showed that that the public pegs this debt problem -- part of the reason why the economy is -- And yet the president ignores us well.
Remember he never mentioned any of this in the inaugural we have those members -- a spending problem.
And you never even mentioned the economy inaugural now we've -- his numbers are going down.
And people or so I've only got -- sixty seconds while Marco Rubio will be delivering the response to the escaping -- when he make it.
He needs to listen to the political insiders the three of us on your show every week.
For a year I've been saying the Republicans need a positive message.
I don't want to see senator rubio coming on there and dumping on the present to get that.
Come on here and hit three things.
That we Republicans stand for.
In health care job creation tax policy that are different than the present you agree that talk.
-- I do it and I go back to the late great congressman Jack -- what we need to hear from Marco Rubio -- hope.
A sense that the Republican Party or for something more than negativism as John was talking about.
Pat has quite rightly referred to them for over a year and a half as the stupid party.
And unless and until Con -- to senator rubio addresses the question of how we have a of growth oriented society with low taxes reduce spending.
And offering inclusiveness.
Which means immigration reform.
Unless he can do that the Republicans will be behind the all right you got final word on the student part thank you very much -- just show a -- Belgium -- -- AA as a.
