As rented out his reelection campaign and also ramping up his tax the rich campaign.
My next guest says he's that's -- clamping down on the folksy doesn't like and rewarding those he does -- doesn't want oil companies bankers.
These days even the Supreme Court silly if you -- no friend you're gonna have to fend for yourself bestselling author Suzy Welch joining right now.
Susie I don't like ended July a modern day enemies list but -- a twist on explain.
Well you know I think what.
I in our recent column -- husband Jack and I were writing about leadership styles and we're looking at.
Romney's leadership style and president Obama's leadership -- if you're putting ideology aside in one of the things that we've observed.
Over the past three years is that Obama has sort of been not sort of has been compiling.
An enemy's list you know first it was bankers an oil company executives insurance company executives.
The list goes on and on Paul Ryan wealthy tax payers and congress itself now the Supreme Court and it just sort of brought back memory just sort of enemies list followed.
You know Richard Nixon and you know in Europe.
You know I think.
Neil what happens is that you've got a -- vilification.
By the press -- And you know it was a Richard Nixon's case you get to do individuals.
And usually -- he didn't trust that it in this case we might be.
Spreading it out the whole industries but having said that they -- what is the harm they've just hard getting.
That you know industries are groups -- saying.
-- whatever the justification.
Are are hurting this recovery or -- averted if you wanna focus on them and just to make a bigger point.
You're saying he risked doing well.
Well I think that Americans hate hate.
I think America does not -- today.
It does not like haters and of course you've got the fringe OK you've got the far right and you've got the far left right and they spew all day long.
Venom and hatred towards each other.
But your -- -- local American is not a hater.
And they want people to come together mean we are built on the melting pot -- deal that is America that we can all get along that they can.
-- -- people who are different can go to school together and can work together -- can play together.
And so what's wrong with targeting certain groups is it.
It it's separates us and giving normally eight no I -- polarizing.
So the point of that column and it.
But here's what I think there might be some -- to do believe I don't agree with that strategy but I think that.
The more you can point to others the less you can remind them to point back to you.
And -- -- you could say boy I'd love to get this under control if not for those greedy.
Or less -- -- that's what you're getting stuck to the guest -- I'd love to continued to see this health care law make progress and everyone benefit if not for those.
Clueless judges on the Supreme Court another would you always have someone to blades in -- when it comes to -- Susie I do it -- president.
Look it's a thyroid condition it's not make you know it but I think you are kidding aside that's what the president's up to.
Well that's an interesting psychological theory really did not know that you were also a psychologist along with being a yes anchor on TV absolute that was the maybe that's what it's about but then the outcome is still the same which is that what you've got -- this balkanization of America.
And you know.
Maybe America was more polarized at some part you know time it's passed the civil war -- mean there's probably some -- -- historian Newt Gingrich could point out.
When we've been more polarized but we are certainly have not been -- polarized.
In a long time and we were definitely -- polarized than before what Obama who was going to be the great you know later that was our.
That was -- great hope for him was he was gonna bring people together.
And instead what we've got is this sort of massive vilification of large swaps of American -- society an industry.
-- you have you if you conclude the industries in the sectors.
It's it's by a factor of -- thousand.
Bigger than the White House enemies list under Richard Nixon because.
RS including -- table and number one.
He did individual that he kept -- secret or at least try to -- we've got the president on the stop making it very public.
Well there is that you know at least is probably letting us know how many people -- Susie it's always -- and our best to Jack thank you very much.
