The attitudes and opinions expressed their particularly the fact that median income -- -- yeah.
And that lesson.

That's with middle America is -- -- -- work.
We want to look at how Donald.
I don't think I've done I realized that kind of that would I don't.
Understand however is this wasn't the Democrats were in complete control for two years and they're still controlled two thirds of Washington for it for four years.
So how does the strategy which says let's blame Wall Street resonate in 2012.
When in fact they.
You have the power the Democrats and on the power for the last what -- -- understand that strategy one thing I do agree with and and the thing I would -- the protesters for the most.

This is two years later -- -- -- to be in fact that He could hold the message a lot better but look there's a lot of blame to around there's no question.
That government and Wall Street are to blame.
But the idea that the senate Republicans hold up the jobs bill unanimously.
At a time when would we cannot get Americans -- -- in -- I don't think yeah to work is stupid I think funny I got you know contributions of those who have done in Cromwell Catholics.
Realize just finally -- A second -- -- goes to me.
If the first stimulus plan have been successfully created -- -- jobs.
I would support the second stimulus program but it was not successful and the Republicans should not support the renewal of the highly unsuccessful program.
But that was my last month but -- -- always a pleasure thanks for joining by -- right now we're getting it from a reasonable democratic election.
