Governor Mike Huckabee governor great to have you with -- with -- this show looks and smells a lot like opportunity for the Republicans when you see this much calamity for the president.
What -- before we turn to Republicans.
Is this president basing here while he's facing absolute catastrophe of his own hand and part of the reason is is He hasn't learned a lesson that Bill Clinton learned.
Bill Clinton remember when He talked about the presidency is not irrelevant because that was such this mood that the president had become irrelevant.
And He went out and said He wasn't here's what He did differently He understood how to hit it.
He understood how to change course and then start working with Republicans to do NAFTA and welfare reform and a host of things that were truly bipartisan and really rejuvenated his presidency.
This president so far is so.
Obstinate I don't even you -- the board stubborn doesn't get close to what.
I'm still you like that's hello.
It just it.
Obtuse would be another word I would use the 20 words obstinate and -- -- like a lot of that.
In the fact of the matter is this president have every sort of indication that He would be.
Wise to pivot to attack.
And his chosen not to it it seemed in this jobs act that.
In fact He was doing that.

That was section may have been section -- -- don't pay attention to the made in America -- you can buy cheaper and and better from a foreign source I mean.
What is going on -- -- -- think that a committee of twelve people wrote this speech and none of them talk to each other they each had a page.
They got to put -- -- and it was a disjointed.
But really what it was it it was as if he'd been serving gruel.
For a number of months and everyone -- we don't want -- we want something better.
And it comes out with a different bowl but the same rule in the bowl and expected everyone's gonna love the taste -- People hated his own party is running from and Joseph mansion Mary Landrieu a number of his own Democrats.
Are running away from him as fast as they can.
The Democrats many of the Democrats were marks the chief in most intense critics of this jobs proposal.
If you can really call it that and the polls showing public support and Blue States.
That on average He won by twenty points for -- -- well the New York nine race is a great example I think you've got Bob Turner coming up later.
That was that was seismic.
It's literally it was seismic this is a see that hadn't been Republican since 1920.
A reliably democratic seat and it wasn't a reaction to Anthony Weiner it was a reaction to Barack Obama.
There and and it's pretty clear that even though the protest stations from the White House and others that the DNC.
There is no denying it this is.
They chose a Republican and with a three to one advantage for Democrats because that had a belly full of Barack Obama's.
Foreign policy and his economic -- Well in a reliably democratic district that is heavily Jewish and particularly orthodox this is a president.
Who has just about done everything possible to alienate the Jewish community in the Jewish vote.
And next week on the 23 when the United Nations will hear this ridiculous proposal.
To allow Palestinian to declare itself an independent state with the United Nations without going through the process of negotiating with the Israelis.
The president says He will veto it but you can tell it's not something He wants to do He ought to make it clear.
Don't even bring that proposal because it's it's dead in the water -- whatever comes to us this president -- either been incompetent in his administration.
Or He truly one of this vote because He did nothing to forestall.
-- to prevent.
No He did not do anything to stop it and it's going to be a big embarrassment for the entire United Nations it's a slap in the face to Israel.
And it doesn't help the Palestinians.
Get any closer to what they want all of the -- supposed goals are gonna be thwarted not to advanced as a result.
Governor Mike Huckabee thanks for -- here.
