They're the numbers according Labor Department jobless rate did drop from some points and seven point six in March by the -- is happening people just diva.
Job growth was awful there it is the number employers adding just 80000 new opportunities.
Let's bring in our political insiders -- absolutely a former Republican congressman for New York -- -- Fox News contributor and a former pollster for president Jimmy Carter joining us.
Live from Miami this -- Doug shown he to a Fox News contributor and a former pollster for Bill Clinton.
But he is hanging out with a beautiful people in South Beach so let me go to you first.
For the very first time.
The president I mean it took him four years but he is finally -- righty.
Committing to entitlement cuts 430.
Billion dollars -- Quid pro quo he wants 600 billion in new taxes.
So -- this were going nowhere fast -- what's the deal.
I think it is going nowhere fast -- mean look it's a good first step that he's talking about entitlement reform.
But bottom line.
He's not talking about serious and -- -- of entitlement reform.
It's baby steps and with making more revenue on top of the tax increase that averted the fiscal cliff in January.
To -- getting negotiations.
The budget is effectively -- why and it's been criticized from the left and the right and bottom line I don't think that this is a serious offer at all.
And it comes out on the heels of these awful job numbers.
The total jobs created in the first quarter this year less than a total jobs last year.
He is he now officially presiding over the worst recovery since warlords all -- numbers are pretty clear and -- getting worse and they're coming from everywhere.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- On -- budgets but this economy situation 88000 jobs half a million people give -- looking -- work.
I mean this is the high in the smallest percentage of Americans working or looking for work since nineteen -- -- You know you got to go win this is on top of all the crisis going -- obamacare which is getting worse on the day.
And all of these other factors and he has no plan for employment he just is out it's a salesman is leaving nothing.
And and -- you can't blame it on sequestration cuts as the White House did on Friday.
Because when you actually look at the numbers and dig deep there was a net gain in government jobs so.
What is it the higher taxes is -- -- is -- everything I think it's a.
Bigger thing you know I I I think it's a crisis of leadership.
From the top down in the whole country we see it every day crooked politicians getting arrested in New York we were just talking off the year about the Atlanta.
Schools superintendent and the teachers rigging the SATs.
It that the leadership class in America has betrayed the people -- supposed to leave now not saying Obama is corrupt he's not but -- Has not seized this job and said we've got -- just something he does nothing and.
-- transparent he presides over a regime of corruption.
Transfer he's the opposite he's the most opaque or take any any presides over corruption everywhere -- you know on Nazis person grow up he just has a corrupt system needs all -- -- he's not changed any except when he goes to California.
Releases -- -- some dollars last week.
Or whatever really gave 5% of his pay pat go oh yeah and keeps the White House clothes from people I -- -- -- this guy is in the business of being a single.
But he's not raising money -- we should -- raise money this is terrible but please give your money so Nancy Pelosi be speaker.
All right Doug I want to throw some numbers at -- -- let's go over the real clear politics poll average of President Obama his approval rating.
Is now 48% his disapproval.
46 -- he's below.
He's almost neck and neck -- dead even with himself.
And let's take a look at the rest -- poll the Rasmussen poll direction of the country.
Right track a scant 35%.
The wrong track 57%.
And -- -- you you work for president the president the guy at the top always gets the blame does he deserve it here.
Yeah I I think the lack of leadership.
That pat and John are talking about is really the problem that the American people are focusing on.
They're giving him responsibility.
Of their holding him accountable and I think rightly so.
And the fear politically Greg in the White House is that this is a slide that could become an inexorable slide.
Very hard to turn these numbers.
I elected in the past month he got elected five months ago.
One his change in these five moments in North Korea it's going to war over the that no I mean he is the -- now we're backing off our global -- -- backing off in order not to do that.
They -- Molly also meant this week with the rain and remember we're gonna have these great here we're gonna stop -- -- total disaster.
-- -- -- and then in the wake of this.
He is not you don't want he's -- home and he -- the can be played overstatement but the only person who gets this guy.
I mean in the course Kim Jong who -- -- -- Republicans are going to be I wanna talking about the president's huge initiative on gun control it's going nowhere this coming week looks like it's dead in congress.
Why is he been so.
In -- factual and pushing for that.
Which he claimed he wanted so -- I think he's measured where the public is they don't want the things he's proposing -- -- -- after -- we were we were on the show before of those you know if you Greg.
And we discussed.
-- that Biden and the president were talking about video game violence.
Hollywood violence mental health programs and gun restrictions -- guess what.
Three months later no mention a mental -- no mention the video games or Hollywood all of it is -- the same old stuff.

Voting against that you've got premiums going up doctor shortage now a hundred -- 40000.
Predicted in the next ten years.
Bob and workers are poised to lose their coverage the opposite of what he promised -- That's hurting him too isn't it.
Yeah I -- and in the poll data shows that the American people is pat suggested.
Continue to be against obamacare they don't believe it's gonna save the money and with the exchanges disappearing.
The prime element of competition is gone bottom line politically.
The lack of leadership to drift in the country the fact that the president's lost the agenda in control of the object but what is -- four.
And it broke real quickly after that there are -- -- but there's no preliminary hearing.
There is locator narrative that's the best thing the president has going the only -- does the fact.
The Republicans anybody have snow and Republican in the last two -- -- -- you to counter -- make it may be just watch the self destruction occur and you know you do believe alone entity to push long rule Basra.
