Ellen Qualls joins us from our DC bureau -- she's probably in the same studio there with Doug -- she can reach out -- don't -- he's very friendly.
He's a former Nancy Pelosi advisor ahead of Qualls communications democratic strategists.
And joining me on set as one of my favorite people Liz -- she's a Fox News Channel contributor.
And I'm hoping that shall stay the hour with us we have a lots of talk about Alan I wanna start with you in this president.
The president set to give another speech on the economy today you I don't know if you can hear Doug Luzader giving some of that yet to set up this morning I don't I don't think we need to do that.
I think you pretty much know the situation.
What is the president planning to say that this nation and I have to say.
The words he's not afraid of the recession.
Are a little scary -- -- by the by the way his house is paid for.
So he isn't not in danger for closing go ahead.
Right well I think as I understand what the president's gonna say the day is gonna talk about the manufacturing sector and how weak enough.
-- manufacturing training in the United States because.
In some cases we have actually jobs that are going unfilled because people aren't skilled enough to fill them.
And so we have a mismatch and so he's gonna announce a big initiative that will really lay out.
Forward direction for manufacturing it turns out the manufacturing has been.
A bright spot in the recovery so far and we have to keep that trend going manufacturing of life.
Things made in America not outlet.
It advanced manufacturing.
Where we have you know new ways of building and -- -- and creating things.
That we don't need to do overseas anymore.
And we don't lose your job making -- change because fat that's what we really need.
Well it was called the Recovery Act but that got a lot of criticism even though economists say it worked really well to save and create three and a half million jobs in America.
-- you know -- -- number again that three and a half million jobs in America but we've lost two and a half million since this president has been.
In the White House and right now we're not creating at a -- to even keep up you heard Doug Luzader reporting to even keep up to keep us from going into a double -- -- so what about this we saved jobs.
Sport you know that the speakers have become meaningless now I think we're at that point.
Where the figures really don't mean much anymore except maybe to get a fix on unemployment and even that figure is woefully underestimated.
I'm astonished to I really shouldn't be it makes me sound -- -- That the president at this late stage of this economic disaster he's providing over presiding over.
Would all of a sudden talk about manufacturing.
Jobs seems to me that was.
A big part of the problem two years ago and now we're now he's another initiative.
And I wonder by the way how much is it gonna cost us to get this thing going I'm sure we're gonna have to either right sick raise taxes -- raise some spending for.
It if he's just he just doesn't.
You know we've got -- pull out right now and an Alabama ask you to take the poll if you will -- it's on foxnews.com.
It's on our live page -- right now our our our live chat box.
Which by the way you and everybody else can get -- on its.
Just beneath the box of people are watching us and they can get in through one of the friendship pages like Twitter FaceBook and get in on the conversation fiercely.
Foxnews.com live you -- poll question what is the biggest issue affecting the US economy right now is -- inflation slowed job growth rising deficit high gas prices are other.
You can't choose all -- which one you -- I think -- -- job growth and that's where.
If you're a Democrat do you think that we should have done a little bit more stimulus because the keynesian economists tell us.
They have to get everything moving again and then you worry about the deficit into an hour in a position where we gave up on the stimulus a year ago.
And we've been worrying about the deficit we've had this paralyzing argument in Washington about the deficit.
Deficits a big deal -- it's an even bigger deal were closer to doomsday on the deficit.
But we should and a little bit more stimulus upfront -- I was gonna fault anybody would say we gave up too soon.
Points stimulating job creation in this country and that's absolutely the number one problem are.
