Welcome to FOX News Sunday panel -- -- bill press told Jennifer love and Laura -- and Juan Williams let's continue pick up on our conversation about.
Where Obama and the Democrats are at the end of 2009 Jennifer.
In other conventional wisdom which is often wrong.
-- is that the Obama.
It presidency isn't some decline not necessarily an altar of late but that unit is on them is approval ratings are down below 50% of Democrats -- gonna have a tough time in 30.
Is that the way they -- -- the west when.
Well yes and -- and it which is sort of a -- cancer but.
In the sense that add to all those facts are correct about where his standing in his right now and where some of his -- items are.
Are not exactly where they want them to be -- a and a big thing that we actually didn't mention in the regular part of the show is jobs which is we.
-- had the situation that in the unemployment rate obviously is very high end.
The White House is very worried about how long that might last and what they might be able to do to bring it down and to address people's very legitimate concerns about it that -- you're gonna see.
As he did and sort of the last month or so of this year you're gonna see a lot of talk from the White House about jobs that is the area where.
They feel gonna send you don't talk to them that they have a sort of drop dead point that it has to be below a certain level by a certain point to get them through November.
I haven't heard talk about the date certain like that but I do think they feel like this early part of the year's crucial.
And they are they're gonna work very hard to try and it but the subsidence front and the political pot to try to address it.
I think it's a little too late I mean Larry Summers a couple of weeks ago I think said that in spring -- the job it is that she economically economic adviser that.
And the spring we should start the same things turn around.
I think for a lot of people if they've seen the focus on on whether it's health care reform bill -- cap and trade get that through the house.
I think what's -- the country's.
Core is melting away with this jobs problem and Jennifer is right I mean it.
That really should be that topic of conversation for all of us are so many people out there hurting holiday season.
And EU you see it you look on blogs you see people in the -- chat -- talking into a desperate they're really desperate for opportunity.
And hope which President Obama said he would deliver I think a lot of people -- hopeful last year.
This year it's a reality check and you make and all the branding they want they can now have all those interviews and Oprah and all that my stuff and the girls are beautiful Michelle beautiful but in the end.
It's all about how the country's -- and right now the country's -- Well you know I think just being here with -- -- -- you know talk radio has just been going after the president on the size of the deficit.
That this president to spends too much money and it's racking up the possibility of taxes inflation cost for future generations.
The pressure is coming from the congress on this jobs issue especially from Democrats in congress who want to get reelected and when he -- The White House attitude is what we've got to put some measures in place to try to lower the deficit the same time.
The congress that lets go with the second stimulus package the white -- there's no that's maybe too much and what we hear from the Republicans.
Well you guys are just tax and spend liberals.
Out so I'm surprised to hear from -- that all of a sudden he thinks the -- the president should spend more money to stimulate this.
And mom I want everything that everything I started in terms of.
I just got it they want people our country to be ground zero for job creation and that's why you did this guy like getting out of the way of business will get and the way a business that's the most viewers want more tax -- -- absolutely I think I think -- -- Katzenberg and make this place the place to do business not China already the.
This president has spent too much in my opinion for big business we're -- yeah.
-- and let you know what therefore I don't see that taxes are I think that with what he's done so far is save jobs are putting more money to Medicare and Medicaid and the state government.
And I think you may see more of that but it's gotta be -- -- they think that.
Apple thing -- going in a moment.
Kristol I could bring some order in some -- -- are and where do we think because.
I'm not sure I agree with Lawrence seems to me that if you begin to show people some progress and it begins to turn up -- -- -- well.
But the question let me ask you at what point and you what you went through a recession with the George W.
George HW bush front I'm sorry.
At what point do they need to show that things are turning around and how much that I captive have turned around to help them in November.
It's Edwards turned around matter and they need to have some sense of progress I think it doubled to get the sense that we had a little rally here in the becomes -- back down.
-- pretty damaging I suspect most of the damage has been done on economic domestic policy I think he's lost quite a lot of support.
They cut the visas -- policies are not popular it just health -- cap and trade in the stimulus just look at the numbers they're just not popularity go changed a lot of it got a lot worse honestly.
I think the needs of inflection points this year are probably -- -- I do think there he had a pretty when -- step back -- complaints -- like we had a certain things support and on the things.
And in 092 -- I think foreign policy is kind of a wash and -- -- have that many traumatic events you know rock states -- was Afghanistan's difficult -- -- made the decision expressed support -- And so since -- -- -- successful terror plots plots thank god we got lucky -- Christmas Day if you think about Iran about Yemen Somalia.
Afghanistan itself Iraq I mean I do think 2010 could be -- the year foreign policy where -- -- needs.
Be successful some of these efforts -- racial progress or not -- think on the sense of losing control.
Of the war on terror and the rise in nuclear weapons I think -- extremely to which you obviously.
About administration conversely I don't think we should underestimate -- -- -- it can do the president and his party if you look successful in foreign policy.
Even if there we're going through tough economic times so I think -- -- -- -- could be a year foreign policy.
Thank you panel and please check in -- that FOX News Sunday dot com tell us what you think about our conversation.
-- -- throughout the week.
We'll see an excellent.
