The crushing of our individual freedoms.
At the hands of Barack Obama -- And as you're near -- listed.
Example after example.
All of it troops madness their character and present loved.
Well yes it mean in the book in the book I talk about how this is not your father's or Democrat color or grandfathers Democrat party.
That this is a whole different kind of ball of wax in -- what I called the Kooks and I traces the rise of the -- to 1968.
So I'm on this one and if -- in Florida.
Him as a broker just everybody is it.
Well Barack Obama is definitely a kooky is a far left -- but there are a lot of Democrats who qualify -- -- Trying to ran as you're near friend.
Armed are every dinner and -- -- -- amount to this last certain drinking doctor all right.
Maybe if you connect.

I can't save -- word on nationally renowned Edison national television I didn't have students -- the word I'm just saying it was a colorful.
I'm just wondering.
Junior of drunk frowned.
But said Ron -- that are -- mail bomb.
All the time Parker order does junior are kind of -- -- But anyway tell me about your book so I you know the idea came out of that conversation because -- we were going through this long -- Any of offenses against the constitution against.
Individual freedom and fiscal responsibility and and the fact that these institutes institutionalized socialized medicine in the United States of America sixteen trillion dollars in debt -- Just like you know what I'm most Americans are asking this question.
What does happen to our country what's happened to the traditional rocket path of growth what's happened to the traditional jobs app engine.
Of America what's happened to all of -- And so I decided to deconstruct the Obama years into it in a very funny -- and I really appreciate.
A Bernie's comments about it coming from him means a lot coming from -- -- it means a lot.
Because I decided that in the age of Obama if we don't laugh we cry and there's no crying in a book by Monica Crowley and there should be no crying.
In America because we ten get America back.
And a lot of our problems.
Honestly cowboy and -- all on -- -- -- during the Bush Administration.
Well there where it certainly if you're talking about the financial collapse now yes that happened during the last month or to -- -- of President Bush's administration.
But every single problem that America faces today every single one from the economic issues to social issues.
Can be traced back to liberalism progressive -- socialism whatever you want to call it the label doesn't even matter.
Crushing debt socialize medicine.
What inner city problems public education with the unions.
Doesn't matter what problem you identified in the United States can all be traced to liberalism and status policies and that's what I -- construct in the book because over the last couple of years.
Barack Obama and the -- -- I call them.
Have put leftist -- on steroids and they have slammed this -- distribution -- agenda onto the United States and a record short amount of time.
They've done it with dispatched and its gonna take us quite -- -- and wrap the tentacles.
Of state is -- -- re distribution is and that they have inflicted on us.
I I don't -- ever heard a word broke.
Since the early 1960s.
And bring him back they have done so you believed it -- or conspiracy.
And on the part of the president.
But he wants our economic situation to worsen.
So they can -- -- Although you on his other -- described.
As a socialist plan of those.
Well first of all we're not nuts to describe it as as a socialist agenda that's exactly what it is Barack Obama has been steeped in this redistributed.
Socialist ideology for his entire life.
And he's been able to affected quite effectively over the last couple of years certainly when he had two years with big majorities in the congress.
A congress full -- troops he was able to do it.
And what you've seen is record breaking deficits and debt unprecedented spending socialize medicine.
And it results suspend sky high unemployment anemic economic growth American superpower in decline are primacy in the world being challenged by Vladimir -- just yesterday -- so many of our other.
Enemies around the world so when you -- conspiracy it's not like everybody sitting in a room saying this is what we're gonna do an.
And we're gonna its -- the country to the railroad tracks and they're twisting their their mustaches.
No but the ideology is such debt.
Debt in 2008.
And I read about this in the -- When the president or the candidate Obama at the time was talking about fundamentally transforming America or -- making the United States or a more perfect union which was all phrases that he used.
We -- -- our own meanings to what he meant by that right so we thought mobile what he means is you know we're gonna get rid of President Bush we're gonna get our first biracial president this is going to be great this is going to be hope and change.
But you have to focus on what she meant by -- -- is and what he meant.
Is this essentially socialist remaking of the country and he's been very effective so far and that's why we need to change.
Here's the problem reviewing your book.
And the people who are -- -- in -- senator.
-- of slow there's some unsettling.
Let's say you're -- or even.
Let's say for sake of this discussion here wrong and are just crazy.
For people like -- and lord brought along fairly -- Are concerned about her march over them.
Try to get to fish pork stock back up and other stuff and -- just broken up all of us on plus some stuff.
And I don't know she she insists.
I notices -- rate another British don't need it.
It's hard to take.
Yeah it's hard to take and that's one of the big reasons why I decided to make the book as funny as it is -- you'll laugh a lot.
When your reading this book because I figured you needed a spoonful of sugar.
To make this medicine go down -- -- hard it's very hard for the American mind to process that we gave the keys to the kingdom.
To number one a stranger and number two.
Somebody was pursued fundamentally an -- -- American policies.
You know it's gonna actually and now there's an import cure right in predicting -- -- disaster.
Young -- their books.
And -- far before.
Although some election and Egypt and a Muslim Brotherhood tell me about.
Yeah -- is so that Mubarak's regime and started to get a little shaky about a year and a half ago I said this is all going to be about Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood has been waiting eighty years for this moment.
And according to many reports the Muslim Brotherhood was behind the toppling of the Mubarak regime.
Muslim Brotherhood is a sworn enemy of the United States.
-- -- for decades told American administrations both Republican and Democrat.
Can you guys you better back -- because if I go down you're gonna get the Muslim Brotherhood and you're gonna have the Middle East a flame.
You can -- the peace treaty with with Israel -- you're going to have a disaster on your hands in this region.
And a lot of so called foreign policy and leads blew that off and they just said look Mubarak is just saying that so that we support him so he can stay in power.
Well it turns out the Mubarak newest country better than we did -- was absolutely right about that.
The Muslim Brotherhood stoked these these revolutionary movements for the be getting.
They were -- behind some of the initial movements of of revolts in Libya.
And I find it incredible.
That the president of the united -- has encouraged.
If not facilitated the overthrow of three.
To rather valued -- American allies in Hosni Mubarak and Moammar Qaddafi who was supplying incredible intelligence to us on the movements -- -- -- in the Muslim Brotherhood.
But this country -- illustrating.
-- administration after administration.
A back and he's very as does spots or not backing them and winding up with other economists rabbi also.
Sold sold all of the presidents during Obama.
This carry an underground to -- tradition.
Of give ourselves and these messes but these idiotic foreign policy bottles or shall not right.
Well in the international world there are fifty shades of gray.
It shall we say no and another is really black and white and -- -- over many decades the administrations of various presidents have backed.
Nice dictators because -- alternative so much worse and now we're seeing that play out in each of the alternative.
