In the words of the president this is a loss.
For the American people and also in his woods it is the fault of the Republicans because they have not agreed to negotiate in good faith.
So lets us sort this all out against Julian Jim Friday Jim -- and a -- -- -- Fox News contributors both Julie.
The president still say this the blame game is still going on it's still republicans' fault because they will come around to democratic ideas.
Is that fact.
Well he proposed something to forget the president came out -- some look at a plan what the sequester.
And the Republicans essentially -- at -- like your plan but.
You know the problem here is that I he had -- -- made at several points today but the point they think he made that's means it's very salient was that heat.
So we have a negotiating partner John Boehner may want to negotiate with him John Boehner may want to concert grand bargain accommodation.
-- -- -- -- -- Admitting to our friend Bob Woodward that he it was the one -- grand bargain before primarily because the caucus would go along with it wouldn't negotiate with.
So essentially allows Obama says the Republicans -- -- every once go ahead we're gonna cut everything you wanna cut but we're not gonna touch.
Loopholes that you talked about one to close Mitt Romney talks that once -- last election.
What does he do the only way Obama is able to negotiate according to Republicans to come around their point of view and you know it's the winner goes -- -- -- They went with that -- on both sides -- Jim -- -- development -- saying -- will this is our daily take this and this is out he'll take -- and neither of them.
Seem to be willing not -- you may be picking up for example the president's refusal to submit a budget which was supposed to do.
Two weeks ago I began February and you might be also thinking the Democrats including the White House and that the senate majority -- Harry Reid saying.
No we do not accept senator Toomey is suggestion that we give the the White House the power to make these cuts poses the question didn't want that either.
Even the Washington Post editorial page this morning so that's kind of ridiculous that the president would turn down the chance to soften the blow the -- and less as the post said.
He's looking for the political play when we have we have some figures from.
Fox News poll I hear I just wanna put up a couple of these -- personal -- -- country get the budget deficit under control.
Only with a automatic cuts 57% of use in the registered voters in our poll so that was the way to do it lawmakers can do it with 29% and -- -- 14%.
That any effect of the -- on the country that it'll have a negative effect 45%.
Positive which would be -- all -- 47% no difference -- told 22%.
The the all of the other polling we've seen Julie.
Is that and this is perhaps where the president is deciding that he needed he wants to stand firm and -- them.
Is that that the polls generally show the public blaming the Republicans more than the Democrats on both sides of.
Yeah I would not hear what you've got here it's interesting paradigm as you've got Democrats obviously controlling the White House and the senate.
He got the Republicans controlling.
The house despite the fact that the -- Got that about a million point five fewer votes than Democrats it for the house and the reason for that mr.
commander in these districts are are created.
Either going to Republicans or Democrats and this is my biggest pet.
So the only thing these congressmen have to fear is a primary either from the right -- the left.
So if you're Republican or Democrat who wants to do something and wants to negotiate you can't because -- big fears some guy's gonna come -- -- guy or woman.
Who's either much more conservative and you hear Republicans are much more liberal records -- Tennessee are -- your -- noted -- -- these names.
So there's no negotiations this is like this is dealing with kids this is why people are still put up with DC I'm so I network in politics so that -- -- it.
For that very reason it's just -- Do you see any.
Light at the end of this particular tunnel give.
I'll take it that yeah.
Little VCU like.
This is that they look there's no question that thing to -- exactly -- says I think that that would redistricting -- something to do with it.
But is also the case I think them mainstream media have decided to side with the Obama administration on -- and for example.
And if you talk about the sequestered is -- 85 billion dollar cut that sounds like a big number 85 -- a lot of money and even at even by Washington standards.
And you say wow and 85 billion dollar cut that's really horrible no wonder that department transformational shut down in the Department of Homeland Security -- -- -- -- -- prisoners -- If you say 2% cut.
Which is also true save 85 billion equals 2%.
Then you get a much different reaction to what do you as an I mean anybody can -- 2% we could all save 2% of calories -- -- today.
And it would hurt and I'm certainly don't gonna do.
Try as I can't try to out adding a 200% my calories.
