All right I am saying that the Obama campaign made two serious -- as this week.
-- one comparing the president's tax plan to Ronald Reagan's two.
A -- and I think modeled response to Hilary Rosen is comments about it and Romney.
Fox News political analyst Juan Williams is in DC I'm looking for agreement TO farm.
Do you agree with me that these -- too bad bad political mistakes let's take the Reagan analogy for us.
President Obama says this is not the Buffett rule this is the Reagan rule implying.
-- that Reagan approved a tax increase is when he did the exact opposite I say that's a mistake and you say.
I'd say they're right he did in fact say that you know he was willing to have tax increases and he had several tax increases on his -- that's a matter of historical fact -- took that -- took the quotes about the bus driver on the million act completely out of context.
Ronald Reagan lower tax rates for every -- and set off prosperity for the nation's the next generation.
To take -- agreement that we hold I don't know and I agree with that Stewart but you've got to remember you're talking about tax rates and remember he had tax increases so separate from the rates.
Yet look at what happened was Ronald Reagan cut tax rates.
And brought in -- money from taxation because he'd know look at rates.
I think you playing semantics now I don't know -- -- announced a very dangerous game for President Obama to try to ridicule.
President Reagan when he was so successful and thus far President Obama has not been.
You want to -- usually get a call it's a mistake.
None auto and you should know he wasn't ridiculing President Reagan in fact he has read -- and you'll biographies by Lou Cannon novel like and this has.
Aggravated some of his liberal admirers as they what's he doing having this you know.
Man crush on Ronald Reagan because -- -- Reagan is a very successful president I can tell you that from inside the white.
I think he was ridiculing his supporters but I can I wanna move on to what where it went -- -- that let let's move -- the second what I -- huge mistake.
When Hilary Rosen said and Romney had -- awoke today in her life.
I think the response to that from -- Connie was modeled in the extreme.
And I think President Obama failed to repudiate.
Outright and forcefully.
Back remark I say that was a huge political mistake.
I think it was the best political mistake so guess what Stewart on this wonderful Friday the thirteenth we get one out of two agreement between Barney -- Williams that bad not bad it off event but here's the thing.
I mean in my wife my family.
She took care of the kids and she has the experience in Washington of going to these big you know events that I go to and people just look at Wright pastor like she doesn't exist and -- it offends her greatly so.
That's a mistake you don't want to anger America's women.
Because even -- a woman has -- job you know she understands we're raising a child is serious and important work.
-- I think that for the first week it all been many many weeks.
I think president Obama's on the back foot.
And I think the Romney campaign is kind of beginning to move forward and taking a little bit of the initiative that would be my judgment on the week -- all we in agreement yet again.
Yeah I think I hope they're starting to pivot obviously this is the -- Santorum got there's just starting to get going.
And it may have to make a big effort right now on the women's issue but I think in general in terms of re -- the economic message.
You know the economic message has been Obama has got an entitlement society and all that and a and and that -- that.
Romney buys into the Ryan budget I think they're not trying to change say it's more of a government centered it's as big government this is not the -- wanna -- -- they've got to get that message formulated and do it in such a way that -- Begin to hear I don't think it's come through quite its door but you're right this is a -- week and they're starting to change and good luck to them.
Yeah excellent I I think it will almost singing combined half along with all of those -- Stiller I wanna come back on your show -- -- Africa.
-- favorite and that's a fact -- -- Williams who will have make any time thanks -- being with us appreciate it.
