Now all former Arkansas governor 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.
The author of the New York Times best seller a simple government -- -- Fox News channels Huckabee show good to have you here.
And governor Romney going straight after the president immediately for his remarks.
Swelling and it was a wonderful gift that President Obama gave to Mitt Romney today.
And for Mitt Romney who has always been accused of being sort of above.
The hard work of of the middle class for him to be able to this point to Obama and say.
Obama is out of touch it was in fact they golden moment for Mitt Romney and his campaign I have a feeling they're breaking out the champagne bottles and Boston.
And and is this the kind of a remark.
It's not simply inside politics is and this is -- kind of remark that can last in the campaign absolutely this is the kind of remark that really hits -- -- the got -- people who are struggling.
To keep their job sort of find -- job -- all the private sector's doing fine.
And what was worse than he comes back out a few hours later he doesn't say no I was wrong he he basically just has I didn't say that.
Well it's on tape Mr.
President we all know what you said it's not like.
That this isn't in the days of the pony express -- -- We have a statistical dead heat the last few polls showing precisely about.
In fact the Gallup is locked -- exactly 4343.
But this this campaign is taking on a different home and this president seems to be -- This has been as I said at the onset of the broadcast arguably his worst week ever and we're in the world -- -- -- Pfizer's once his -- Well there ought to be one additional unemployed person in America tonight.
And that's the -- for -- who thought it was a great idea to -- the president out in a press conference this morning and is somehow try to give a rosy picture.
-- -- and again if the president had something new to say.
But -- every day he goes out it's the same thing.
I inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression.
The Republicans are bad and their stalling my progress -- -- -- just been some more money and borrow some more from China.
Which hasn't worked so far but somehow magically.
It's going to work if we just doing a little bit more.
That's the whole fame and he hasn't come up with -- anything -- that that you know that people of America get it.
And they can watch that and listen to that and they realized he's got nothing that's what they understand now he's got nothing to offer them except.
Holding on trying to get reelected.
We have seen the the market.
This week reversed what had been weeks.
There seems to be a different tall and this is intuitive and -- rule and acknowledge that.
But there is there seems to be a different -- in these markets and I don't know whether that -- walker rally on appalled at such Wednesday and I truly believe it.
That that the market chose Wednesday to start moving higher to me is significant you're your view of what Governor Walker achieved -- -- -- Well I think it's send a signal as -- San Jose and San Diego.
That the days of unlimited government spending are over there's going to be prudence and and it.
Great level fiscal responsibility.
And I do believe when you saw the down go up a 165.
Points -- -- -- 200 points of the closing bell Wednesday it was assigned to business works with sank.
Maybe America is gonna give us a different direction.
And maybe we're gonna have results that we can live with that are friendly to business rather than being hostile to business.
Business doesn't want the government to bail -- it just wants him to quit harassing them.
It's not that they're asking them to give a much sugar pill just quit kicking him in the rear -- that's all they really need.
I need your read on something governor mark President Clinton is talking about the president in alternately blowing and and difficult terms.
You're an expert on Hope, Arkansas I'd welcome her -- -- -- -- out.
What is going is -- sincere in these apologies I don't think I ever call the president making President Clinton making an apology.
Well I laughed out loud when he trotted out and said.
Well I didn't know that you know at the end of the year this thing would have but I -- well -- -- -- before they and so.
You know this is the smartest -- well you know this is the smartest man who's been president a long time served eight years went through many federal budgets.
He understands politics as well as anyone I think I personally have ever known in my life and he knew exactly.
When those tax cuts expire.
I mean he got up probably about a vicious call from the White House and be a good party guy he went out trotted out an apology.
But Bill Clinton is being handed that's what's getting him in trouble he's actually saying what everybody else knows.
It is alert to any of us who have ever talked group president -- group and site.
In the statistical data reliance are relevant to in the public policy -- -- That he forgot when what would happen what's right at that -- -- that wasn't credible what he said about the economy and about the danger.
Of not extending those Texas that is credible wanna ask you one cultural issue and that is the incredible success of shades of great of this is important it is been described to me as.
It holds the first second.
Third and now fifth position -- The trilogy is that fifth position that the other three boards are in first second and third.
Are you upset about that do you think this is going it's extraordinary what's happened I just wish that I had written the book -- But then again I won't know how to write such a book to what -- -- now.
I think what we're really brought a lot of Hope, Arkansas who can't walk what it is it it's it's an estate.
Right now people are under so much pressure and this is a fairly inexpensive way.
To sort of turn your brain away from politics and the economy I think that's what we're saying.
I I think that Governor Huckabee has declined.
And so journey into the our culture -- -- great -- and --
