To go to the Wall Street Journal.
Democrat strategist Marianne -- with the Dewey square group joins us now but I am proud.
I want us all this thing out about subsidies you've already admitted on our show.
It's on tape you know we still have take these days you've already admitted to thank god.
I'm gonna get proper analysis that that that that got something.
Now -- you've already admitted that there is no check that goes from the treasury to the oil companies.
There is no handouts from the oil -- to the oil companies you've already admitted that.
-- you've also admitted that taking an extra full billion dollars off the oil companies does not bring gas prices down.
So do you want to.
Add anything to -- -- comments about the president and subsidies and oil companies and gas prices.
How about the bottom half of that Keystone Pipeline.
A couple of nights try to look at -- -- that's a pipeline how about this.
Two proposals to build two new pipelines that that come down the part that crosses the -- the -- yeah.
But the statement not just like on though the the it and -- -- from Canada already built.
I think the environmentalists will fight this thing tooth and nail you -- They could mean I think I think let's talk I -- politics are -- let's talk politics here I think the politics of oil companies energy gas prices right now is the following -- go back.
This administration does things in stages.
First there was the speech about gas prices and energy and oil and -- that.
Then last week we of the two day tour in the midwest that included now be infamous bottom half of the Keystone Pipeline.
I think what you're gonna see going Ford now is.
That president Obama's going to has now shown everyone he has and all of the above strategy and I think he's gonna go long and hard now against oil companies.
Because you always need an enemy and in this debate they are the enemy says and I think he's now -- it can show everyone well everything's politics that you know everything's -- -- sometime -- Policy -- bad policy this is pure Apollo and nothing -- It in this case in this case though though -- Stuart.
And four other Republicans who love the free market and always want competition.
It it's fine except when it comes to subsidies in the oil companies and speculators that are driving gas is another sub group then they don't like -- somewhat you.
I was on the substance but I got to move on -- that we got just sort of we got -- -- with accurate but yeah.
-- -- I have to ask you about the president was Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev.
Over the weekend you know what's coming but just listen to this again.
Well let's let's.
So -- -- he's gonna get reelected is pretty sure of that I think a bit more flexible.
You can shift his position.
I want -- knowing which way you think he would shift his position on the economy.
If and when he gets a second term.
That's a great question story I mean I think two things one.
The political reality right now is you can't get anything done is the problems certainly not with congress so.
Eight it and that's -- they have such low ratings I think in a second term.
Of President Obama he probably has the ability to go after business even harder he has some options to go after revenue he has some options to close loopholes.
And I think he has a whole lot of flexibility across the board because he he doesn't a doesn't have to worry about her a third reelection now that said.
It depends what congress looks like and I think that's what you say the Obama administration doing summoning executive orders right now.
Because congress can all they can -- rhinos they post offices that's about it you know that -- that I think that's the reality.
But you know I got to remind -- on tape you just said he can go after business even Honda you said it.
And -- -- you because I think a lot of -- -- well I think a lot of a lot of businesses and and Wall Street in particular.
Aren't doing their fair share of the ten they would they they have there the once again we can go back over this again against many people in this country -- -- so.
Feel they're responsible for what is happening last -- years so I think everyone's stepping up except a lot of bullet in this case on some businesses and certainly oil come.
All right I'll let you expected to jump on the oil companies to get cheaper gas note when you beat up on the drug companies get cheaper drugs note when you beat up on the health insurers to get better insurance know when you beat up on the whom so ever did get better service from a bank -- for example to get cheaper banking know you don't.
If you're gonna keep on building up on business you don't get a better economy then you just don't get a -- -- well -- -- again.
As always I'm out of time.
OK thanks very I think -- if --
