Show sixty minutes now past the hour how are liberals and conservative listeners on the radio reacting to the idea of a new Obama administration joining us to break downs morning radio talk show hosts Mike Gallagher and bill press they -- radio.
On the left you gotta conservative on the right and you've got a liberal doing -- you guys do it over I don't know well.
But let's start with -- I was interest in this this week to -- a bill crystal's column and he was pretty gracious saying look you know what we support an Obama administration we're going to be supportive and obviously we're going to disagree with him on policy if we need to be.
Are you finding that your conservative listeners are they supportive of -- -- Obama administration -- that -- angry.
Pressure supportive of the word I'd use a how I'm.
I think you know I think radio listeners.
At least our callers are I know the Tony assured by the host and in my case you'll listen I've said the other side one.
So be it and now the real battle begins but I think conservative talk radio is going to be just like it was in the late eighties when Rush Limbaugh exploded on the national scene.
We're going to be the loyal opposition we're going to be watching every move.
We're going to be showcasing.
The highlights of the low lights of this Democrat.
In office and our listeners are very shabby and I think build clusters I hope for also as concerned about the the looming prospect of the Fairness Doctrine as publishers are here we go all -- -- if by the Fairness Doctrine is resurrected so that's sort of the reaction on the right.
Oh well bill a bill as your body that -- throw a question that mixes well -- expectations are extremely -- -- as as you know you only need to do is -- the papers talking about the looming economic the economic crisis and everything that's on the on the plate right now for Barack Obama our expectations too high and are your listeners expecting maybe a little too much of him.

And it's it's a sweet moment I mean but at the same time they're realistic they're euphoric because they see this is a chance to finally do something to dig ourselves.
Others economic hole that really get started down the road energy independence and universal health care.
But they're realistic because they know it's not gonna happen it's not gonna happen overnight that it's that deep Pall of going to take some while.
You know they get out but at least they've got a mandated you know something -- -- got to think I think people really appreciate the fact that President Bush has reached out to -- a bomb at their meeting earlier.
-- make correctly but that any of the previous administration that I can recall and that the terms of a trend transition meeting and I -- I think that augur well.
-- Mike your response before we take a quick break.
Well it's just it's the -- it's the kind of guy President Bush is I mean you know I have had an incredible opportunity awhile ago to meet with him for a couple hours in the Oval Office I wish everyone a President Bush's critics would have the opportunity he is that kind of guy who's gracious.
He's classy guy and he is use -- to do well here we're gonna tell you this to say right we're going to continue this discussion right after a break you guys know radio.
