Hi I'm bill -- -- thanks for watching us tonight America is becoming a chaotic country that is a subject of this evening's talking points memo as you may know.
I wrote the book killing Lincoln to show Americans what true leadership really its old -- put his country above himself.
But his ideology on the shelf.
He did whatever he had to do to keep the union together -- not included all kinds a compromise.
Say in America president Obama's not showing leadership and I encourage the president to take a look back and -- it because I know mr.
Obama is a fan.
So way on earth the president Lincoln will allow the fiscal chaos we have today.
Let's -- -- -- -- stated this is not a complicated map.
President and the Democratic Party must agree to cut federal spending they have to do that.
Yet the president resists.
And now we have automatic spending cuts with a government shutdown.
At the end of this month.
-- Mitt Romney -- defeated President Obama we wouldn't be in this mess yesterday the governor said this about dealing with the imposed cuts.
I understand from Paul Ryan I spoke with him just a day or two ago.
That that he's put forward a proposal to give the president.
Flexibility in moving that money between accounts so we're gonna bring the spending down but but -- you know you're gonna get Mr.
President the chance to.
Make sure that we don't have long lines at the airport.

This this is America we're talking about at a critical time.
And and you know that it Niro -- just fiddling.
But -- correct -- Obama is not trying to solve the budget problem.
President wants -- raise taxes and redistribute income everything else be -- That's not leadership.
And an honest media should be pounding the president but it's not instead.
It is defending him.
You know listen we've known about this for sixteen months.
And yet even today there's no plan from senate Democrats or the White House to replace the -- or is just not true they've made it very clear is the president just did.
That he has a plan that he's put forward.
That involves entitlement cuts that involves spending cuts.
That you've made a choice as have Republicans.
To leave tax loopholes in place and you'd rather have those.
And we will all these -- David that's just nonsense.
If he had a plan why wouldn't -- Democrats who have passed.
Because there is no plan there's no specific.
Plan put forth by the president.
That's why this chaos.
Now the -- the leadership.
Boehner right there he's on the right side of the issue he wants -- cut federal spending because it's leading the country to bankruptcy.
But the speaker of the house has not appeared on this program and generally doesn't make his case with any authority.
Simply put the American people are not listening.
The John Boehner most don't even know reais.
On the other side we have senate majority leader Harry Reid does this man inspire confidence does -- You know what readers like you -- local Thanksgiving dinner screaming -- gray day more gray day.
That's very more gravy.
So where people are caught in a terrible situation.
We have fiscal chaos and the -- And a smile.
