Past the Republicans in congress authority saying that any tax increases in non starter what's what's one and a half trillion dollars in tax increases but.
I think one of the purposes here for the president -- he's trying to draw contrasts talk about what He wants to do what could be done.
And then run against an obstructionist in his terms an obstructionist congress in the same way.
That Harry Truman years ago ran against the do nothing congress.
So it's it's.
-- -- you whether you think it's politics or or policy it's it's a way of going contrast.
What's the mood around -- -- else -- national.
I would say that what depends what part of the White House you work -- that's that's not the that's not a dobbs it's a real answers Umar.
In the press staff for the economic team you might be feeling a little besieged.
If you're with the national security team.
You know knock on wood it's been a pretty good round may have -- in.
Kill bin Laden.
You obviously that -- it feels that that part of that but.
The record of the national security record is something that I think there's -- little bit more confident about the -- -- economic record.
Talking reserves -- senior White House correspondent for -- -- We're obviously like because -- -- calling him.

White House correspondent for fox you know a.
-- -- -- for more than a decade when what I more than that even maybe almost two decades when I I started out doing a comic strip for roll call.
The weekly at the time it was just a weekly newspaper.

Back to -- present frustrated about her on a while nobles consult.
Can you possibly win reelection -- the unemployment rate is hovering near 10% as it is now if -- from -- It's very difficult I mean the way I X when I was up in New York for the 9/11 memorial and I caught up with a bunch of my friends up in your city almost all of them are.
Our Liberal Democrats -- try to explain this.
The -- that basic math and you should.
In New York City and now it's it's crazy.
And the basic -- is.
The President Obama and Senator Obama in 2008 had everything going for politically.
John McCain did not want a great campaign there are questions about his running mate.
It was an economic crisis not a national security crisis.
That happened right before the election best.
Playing into the Democrats hands could that's the stereotype that Social Security helps the Republican economic crisis also Democrats.
And yeah I mean.
He had He He ran the table I mean everything went as well mainly in a Democrat if not it's probably not gonna win the state of Indiana for another twenty years.
But -- President Obama won Indian.
So all about going form and still 47% of the country voted against them.
Mitt Romney -- Rick barrier so back when whoever the nominee is starts out with 47% of the country as before.
And you have to figure.
That -- Democrats turning out to vote for Obama.
Probably will not be as inspired as they were to decimate them that the turnout will be less.
Even if it's the same all the Republican us to do is convince -- three million.
Voters plus one to their votes and I just don't see that is.
And entirely you know I I see that is easier.
Than President Obama holding them.
At least at this stage of the game so it's going to be very tough.
