-- struggles with massive unemployment staggering deficits and multiple -- President Obama while he's busy working on -- handicap.
Now this weekend of the Buckeye State the president is scheduled to hit the links -- vice president Joseph Biden.
And two Ohio Republican speaker of the house John Boehner and governor -- -- -- it will be the twelve week -- -- role that -- golfer in chief has played the game.
His fourteenth outing this year and the 73.
Of his presidency.
Just don't expect any serious budget talks to go down on the golf course the White House has already clarified.
But this is strictly a social outing not the time for negotiations but maybe speaker Boehner should at least confront the president about this attack -- From the DCCC.
Which aired in Ohio this spring let's take a look.
Did someone call the fire department.
Because it's up but they just -- here.
He's responsible for the content of this after.
And joining me now is one of the man is going to be teeing it up with the president this Father's Day weekend Ohio governor John -- -- I understand you're pretty good golfer governor is that true.
Well like you know shot I don't have as much time to play anymore as you know you get busy in this job and we should be -- -- I shot -- say it's really.
There's so much polarization in Washington I've got to tell you know I did the budget.
I was -- chief architect with a great team of people in 97 to get our budget balanced and I have to tell you that the ability to treat somebody is a human being and not as a political opponent although you're always going to be philosophically different.
It just creates a different dynamic and as you know this country needs a solution on this debt limit.
And I you know to just be there and be part of this and there's a few things that you know -- ideal we'll talk to the president vice president about as well.
You know somebody's personal relationships are good at developing you remember Reagan and O'Neill I mean Tip O'Neill and Reagan fought like cats and cats and dogs and at the end of the day.
They put the country first.
-- but here's the problem it was the president you -- passes health care -- he cut 500 billion dollars in Medicare 500 billion.
Republicans didn't do that you see the -- there were all people are.
Haven't a war pin and push -- is how are they gonna pay for the 121000 dollars that's that's first of all.
Know all people.
Are included in the Ryan plan so it's deceiving the president himself said.
That the Republican plan is gonna have to -- -- ought to isn't Down syndrome and the elderly fending for themselves.
It's always demagoguing it.
I didn't sit with them is you know I got a very hard time saying why do you support these -- because it's just a lie it's not true.
Was shot you know I I've been with the president I had one exchange with them in the Blair house when I was first elected governor the president came inning campaigned against me twelve times and you know I -- -- you're if you're gonna be -- -- didn't work so regardless of the golf outcome you know I won the election but.
Shot part of this is when you don't know who the opponent is -- you don't know what they're made out it's a lot easier to attack somebody then when you have to look at them.
And get to know them a little bit and treat them as a human being.
And you know that was my experience in in Washington -- and as I got to know people go ahead.
All Bryant sat there in front of President Obama.
And they -- had a relationship.
But he just went out there in front of Paul Ryan tried to humiliate him embarrass him in the barn and our guys you know what I do well what I do what I've done -- as I call people want it.
Look out here in Ohio we're about to eliminate an eight billion dollar budget deficit we're cutting taxes.
We stared our problems square in -- and we are getting Ohio on the right track where become we're open for business now.
And believe me I am going to communicate to everyone who will listen that we did not look for a bail while.
We did not look for somebody else to solve our problems we are couple weeks away from having a final agreement on a conference committee that will set our house in order and you know why it.
Because we had the courage to look problems in the -- we didn't play short term politics.
We -- thinking about Ohio's future and -- you're gonna hear a lot of this out of me Shimon.
You know maybe that's one of the things that I will be able to communicate but you know we've been invited first social event I'll handle it appropriately but.
He'll know what he'll ever really know what gets that discussed during those those eighteen holes of golf but I think it will be beneficial.
For the country at least I hope so -- You gotta come on the program and tell us what goes under -- those eighteen holes of golf.
All you know I will Sean you know all coming to an end to tell everybody I'm going you -- would you do if favored because I can't get the president didn't have the courage to come on Hannity.
He goes he gets -- softball interviews -- every -- -- we you work on my behalf.
-- inbox every -- produce -- Iran I think you could say one eagle on my -- Hannity program.
Okay and what -- do you think I should make as to why he should appear because I I think people would like to see.
-- AM and I debate that's -- A good shot you know what I'm gonna tell on -- -- all of you know.
Hannity he may have strong opinions he's a heck of a good guy he's a good father and he's good husband he won't give Hannity some time ago -- mister president did what they didn't have.
What they even invited O Reilly to the Christmas party I did get a Christmas party invite.
The white you know -- about when I went to the bush -- a Christmas party all sorts of liberals there.
Let let me tell you something one thing that I I guess I wanna emphasize again is what we're doing here we build a team of people committed.
To solving problems and taking on all the issues are you an example on Medicaid.
We've saving billions of dollars in you know why we focused on 6% to -- over 50% of the costs.
It we're giving them care coordination so they get better care at a lower price everybody wins.
If you start looking problems square any -- and cut out the politics put the country first our state first.
It's amazing what you can do I did at 97 with my friends and we're about to do it with some great part.
And must win state for both parties so.
I'm not sure he's brilliant all you can be our biggest thing I've got to stand behind them on the T.
-- -- -- and not a bad idea what's your handicap.
But it's not as good as it used to be shot there are some things that ought to remain private while what did -- used to -- I meant to be single digit all right that's better than mine because I don't -- polite but anyway John -- -- -- -- And coming up very --
