The road today from Boston to Miami out hustling for money.
No not debate on the national debt.
But for his party this past is overall fundraisers good timing -- hours of bedtime is former senator Rick Santorum joins is good evening so there.
-- -- -- -- Come -- well and presidents of both parties spent a lot of time fundraising help build up the party help but wind different how the house of the senate back whatever might be.
How much today the president hitting three bad bad timing former just doesn't matter in terms of his gonna do it some time -- they all do.
I don't think it could comment in the midst of of all of these scandals but really it's the -- the president operates -- the the president likes to Seattle Washington.
-- he likes to go out and and and raise money and play politics I mean that's that's what he's very get that he's he's very accomplished that it.
It doesn't doesn't particularly care if you micromanage things in Washington he doesn't think we like taking.
Take responsibility for the things are going on there and.
So if he stays out any gets into the political round gets in campaign mode -- can fire his troops and continue to keep his base energized.
That's really I think the the ultimate game planning.
You know I mrs.
Simpson of the visual of art fund raising but I suspect on the flight from Boston to Miami.
-- Air Force One it's a fully equipped White House -- that I assume that he's doing some business would you not assume there's some business going on.
Oh I'm I'm sure like the over the president's obviously we all heard not just the president all the gossip that's that's part of our problem is society.
Is -- we're we're always on.
We're always available and certainly the president is no different than that.
But look when you're when you're out there in the -- trailers what he's doing right now.
Your focus on the campaign I mean when you're an Air Force One I suspect that they'll be candidates who will be on the plane with -- will be visiting with them.
I will be talking about the next advance.
High -- and so you're out there on the on the stock which is he has today.
You're going to be fairly consumed with what's going on your day -- and you're not going to be and a whole lot of attention -- TV ads have an issue is that happening in Washington.
Do you see any indications are hands shot and terms of looking at these different does scandals are alleged scandals or development or is -- trying to keep some distances edged Smart to -- let them play out as they may very well be or should be doing something.
Well I mean it's you know the presence that reaction every time of these -- -- I -- doing about it and I knew who may have been this is -- -- -- -- -- -- Is the you know he is the antithesis unfortunately you.
Have a great democratic president with -- when it came to the issue of responsibility Harry Truman.
I was at the buck stops here and there there is actually no buck stopping anywhere here.
President Obama's desk in his opinion that if there's something going wrong -- the administration.
If somebody else's fault.
And he opts out on the campaign trail to.
-- to make that point two to rally his -- and they've been treated unfairly in and get his people -- guys to this storm Capitol Hill.
What does it make him he can't -- can't run for president again is in his second term.
As far as we can see that day health care is going forward although I know we do anticipate lots of problems those exchanges aren't setup and a course a lot people complain about.
Rates going up -- -- some people like some of the the healthcare they like some aspects of but some really -- it.
What difference do all these sort of -- even make.
Why I think you make you make a very good point credit there's going to be something that's -- overwhelm all these scandals here in the next few months that -- implementation of obamacare it.
And you know maybe what he's doing this day is raising money because.
You know they're gonna have to fight back gave me you're gonna see -- -- increases.
You're gonna see people who lose their insurance.
You're gonna see.
You know horrific situations that business is dropping their insurance.
This is going to be a nightmare for the Obama administration you're right states are not going to be ready with these changes.
It's going to be a problem.
And maybe what the president is doing is really Smart in the sense he's going out there raising money.
To be able to battle what he knows it's going to be really be the Waterloo for -- and I did in politics and certainly for the 2014 election.
Which is astronomical health care health health insurance increases I'm a drop in the number of insured.
And and -- real the stabilization of the time it was gonna come as a result of that so.
Maybe this is just his way of preparing for I -- and he -- I think maybe realistically.
That these scandals are short term obamacare is -- long term problem for.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But there's no question that people will lose their assurances results people will lose that you mention they'll lose their jobs as regardless -- they won't be higher.
As a result of companies refusing to grow people get part time jobs -- full time job and of course.
-- you're gonna have the people who have insurance.
We're going to see tremendous increases or they're gonna sue their insurance be cut and having to go off into these exchanges.
Which everything I hear I talked a lot of insurance companies because I'm trying to stay on top of this as much as I can't.
And they're telling me it up.
That the yet the schedule the Obama administration has for the implementation.
Just just the the technology that you're trying to implement a process claims that.
To add to and do -- tribute.
If you've benefits simply cannot work at a time frame that they're suggesting this could be a major disaster.
But my -- -- I served in the sent a message quick question on -- we'll have thirty seconds left.
Tom -- his exchange with senator Wyden.
Do you think that mr.
clapper is the best for the job.
Look I I think the president is -- people who are politically attuned to the president.
And have been very good in apologizing for this president and -- -- point.
But are not the best people to do the job there's no question in my mind about.
Does that mean -- should go.
Well I did it -- -- way to get get.
Giving problem in his testimony -- it if his testimony was false afford it but the -- by the senate.
And and that and I think it was fall is not know what you think should he go why they're there.
-- testimony was false Jeremy let's I -- attorney general.
Should both go.
Well look if you're -- it if you can if you're at an actual case of your lie to congress.
Obviously the president should consider whether they want people who have perjured himself before congress -- -- -- and I certainly wouldn't want anybody -- done that -- -- -- Does and as at seven easy software -- -- they should they should be done.
I would let's put this -- would never did perjury or might cap it and I would want people to go on line plan -- after -- in my administration.
Before -- before the congress I would think -- president.
Who who campaigned on being the most honest.
Ethical and transparent president in history of the country.
-- odds on such on such that's just.
-- -- -- My pleasure.
